I don't remember now, but I'll post later when I'm in front of my iTunes.
 
 Three Dog Night are, to me, one of those bands like Bread and America.  I know some of their songs, but had no idea it was they who sang/played them.   ???

Did bullfrogs die out before 1976?
 
 I dont think they were big in the UK and believe it or not I dont listen to american Classic Rock stations, unlike Mankie.

I know Tom Jones had a song recently of the same name. I guess Tom Jones covered it. Kelly from Stereophonics did guest vocals on the song. I have only ever heard that version.
 
 Should I rush right out and buy all their albums?

no,but the greaterst hits would be good to add to a collection if you can get it cheap.Commercial pop,with good harmonies.Just remember it's a pre punk 70's band.

Sorry guys but The Decemberists do nothing for me. They are okay but I really have no interest in them.
 
 Markie, believe me, you've heard Three Dog Night somewhere, somehow, in someway. They've saturated mainstream culture so deeply that the whole world would know of at least a few of their hits even if they couldn't identify them. They were very big in the late 60s - early 70s and weren't bad then. Now they are pure mainstream Oldies. The only album of their's that I've ever liked was their 1st one. That damn bullfrog song drove me out of my freaking mind!!! I think it was called Joy To The World. (Chris Rock, or some Black comedian had a great joke about that song!)

I'm with you Jag.It's not bad per se,but totally run of the mill IMHO.Strange thing is that most people i agree with on music most of the time love it.I just don't see what all the fuss is about.granted,i've only heard Her Majesties,but that should be enough to form an objective opinion,unless they just changed their sound dramatically.

"Mama Told Me (Not to Come)" is a 1970 Randy Newman song, subsequently covered by TDN, Tom Jones, and many others.
 
 We play the original here at the old folks' home all the time  :D

Have to say, Bags, that the Coral don't really do it for me either...but I've grown to love the Decemberists.  Forget about who's poppier...the bottom line is that the Decemberists write better, more memorable songs (not just catchy-memorable, but thoughtful-memorable).  Give 'em a shot.

I think really the only way to make the fees go down is by having the venues complain that their ticket sales are going down. Prime example would be Jaxx. Jay has been voicing his opinion that if people don't start buying tickets he'll have to cancel shows. Presales determine how well you're likely to do. If your presales are 15 the day before a show, I wouldn't want to bank on the fact that 600-700 people would be showing up the day of the show simply because they didn't want to pay the ticketbastard or tickets.communist charges. It has effected people buying tickets. Sure a show might sell out the day of the show, but it keeps people away that most likely would want to go to the show but either a) don't have the time to get down to the club to buy tickets in advance or  b)refuse to pay such astronomical charges for what? A computer's job that takes less than a minute to handle? For tickets.com to charge a $3.50 "Holding" fee for you to pick up the tickets at the venue is rediculous. Besides, it's not like it cost $3.50 for them to mail it to you either so I could see a $1 charge (just like the 930 Club would do) for holding your tickets.
 
 Seriously, what the hell has become of the entertainment industry. And they wonder why people skip out on movies and concerts and just download it...

I'm with you. Alas, I don't see how my boycotting shows is going to help, so I just can't do it.
 
 And now I'd like to complain about goddamn Starpower moving Independent Film Channel from basic cable to digital!! aaarrrrgggghhhhhh
 
 I hate all these awful companies.
