That song really could use some harmonica …
Could only improve it.
I'd apply a white noise remix. Just a solid buzz of hiss and feedback for the duration.

Seems the place to chuck this on,

I was a latecomer to this song but it came on the radio in work today and it's amazing. Joyous chorus, fantastic harmonies, great track.

I helped the lead singer move a couch once. Nice guy, a little weird, but nice.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Or perhaps some cowbell!

Basically, anything to obscure what exists.

Hello,

It needs ketchup - a whole bottle of ketchup stuffed down the lead singer's throat.

This one time, I think. I've mentioned it a few times before, but Tom is new and may not have heard it. Plus he's the only person that might be *slightly* impressed by it.

It might be my favourite story that you've shared. You're obliged to explain it again, I think.

Matt Patrol and I were in our first band at the end of high school. One kid we knew lived across the street from Kevin Cronin and offered to set us up to meet him and give us advice in how to "make it." We went over at like 3pm and he was in a robe eating cereal and asked us to move his couch. The extent of his advice was basically to make a 3-song demo, not a 4-song demo to make it more to the point.

That makes him sound like an ass, but he was polite and talked to us. He came to our school once as like a guest speaker for the jazz band and choir. He did a bit of Keep On Loving You and immediately criticized the piano as being out of tune. Again, kind of sounds like an ass, but it was nice of him to stop by.

Just read the story, cool stuff mate though kicking off over the out of tune piano was a little shitty, but yeah guess he didn't have to stop by.

The song is still great by the way, all.
