    Layla was actually a bust when it came out in late 1970 (and was the abbreviated 3:30 version), but when it was included on Clapton's Compilations album in its full 7 minute glory, it was re-released as a single in 1972 and hit the Top 10.

    Come on Eileen! You go girl!
    Thanks Gregg! At least someone else realizes that "Brandy" is so weak....

    Hahaha! When that song was a hit, my old girlfriend dragged me to see that group live at a Pittsburgh bar.

    Thanks for running the tourney Revo!
    If DMT didn't exist we would have to invent it. There has to be a weirdest thing. Once we have the concept weird, there has to be a weirdest thing. And DMT is simply it.

    I made that typo years ago and got called out by either KS or Fly... so I stuck with it.

    I think it was employee onion surveys.
