And, speaking of songs, we discussed each episode. We got a good one, Dave? Sure, or do we? Oh, let's find out. Yeah, so this episode we're talking about asong called Same Old Lang Sign. So this week we're going to do toChristmas songs. The first one we're doing is same old langs on from DanFogelberg, which came off the album the...

...innocent age, which was released inone thousand nine hundred and eighty one and was also on his one thousand ninehundred and ninety five compilation album called love songs, which actually kind of makesme think of Will Ferre, will Ferrell's character in blades of glory, whenyou wrote that poetry book called Let me put my poems in. You youever see that movie? I have, but I don't have a recollection ofthat particular title. He scribed. Yeah, I think they when they're like doinglike the funny like intro for each of the the ice skaters for himand John Heaters character. They talked about those is pretty funny, and that'swhat I whened this album was called love songs. I'm like, that justgave me the same vibe. Yeah, but you know who really writes abetter love Song Than Dan Fogelberg? Hey, he's pretty good. He is tohim good. Yeah, well, I will give them that. But, like I said, this came out in August, in one thousand ninehundred and eighty one. Dan Fogelberg was also the songwriter. Nowaday, whatare some of your memories of this song? I was one of the owners ofhis greatest hits albums, not specifically love songs, and I've always hadan affinity for Mr Fogelberg and I do believe, and I don't throw thisout very often. I feel like I have more frequently on this show,but it still needs to be said. I think longer by Dan Fogelberg isone of the greatest songs ever written. I know it's that the song we'retalking about today, but I mean it's part of his catalog and it's fuckingbrilliant. You know who actually might agree with you on that? WHO's atMichael Jackson really do tell. When I was researching this and I don't rememberwhat article it was in, but I believe someone had asked Michael Jackson aboutit or somehow it came up in Michael Jackson said longer was one of hisfavor songs. Ever. Yeah, now we have two things in common.What's the first? Well, we both...

...dip our balls and glitter. Oh, well, everybody does. That is fast. If Baby, it's theholiday season. You got that right? Yeah, I mean I so.For me, I you know, I don't remember like a specific first timeI heard this, but I know you always remember you hear this in araid, you're on a holidays and I never really gave it a proper listenuntil a couple of years ago and my wife and I were discussing this song, often due to the lyrical content, which we will get into later,and she actually kind of pointed it out to me. I never like thisis like a song I would here and just be like, okay, whatever, it's this song. I never really gave it much thought and then mywife brought it up to my attention. Actually, so Mrs Zachman was theone who kind of pointed this one out to me. And then once Iwent down that rabbit hole, there was no way back. Baby, couldn'tget out. Huh, no, drail the rabbit hole. This is true. LASSIE trus trap down the rabbit hole. Send help. Last, I thinklast, we're just leave me down there. To be honest with theeye, that wouldn't I wouldn't blame lassie. But yeah, so, so thissong still pretty popular. I mean on spotify. The song has beenstreamed over nine and a half million times on spotify. It's actually it's it'sFogelberg's third most stream song somehow. But also not only that, this songpeaked at number nine on the US billboard hot one hundred back in February ofone thousand nine hundred and eighty one h isn't that something? Yeah, so, some other songs on the billboard hot one hundred at that time. NumberOne was nine hundred and twenty five by our good friend Dolly Parton. Numbertwo was I love a rainy night by Eddie Rabbit. I love me someEddie Rabbit. Three was celebration by cooling the gang, for was woman byJohn Lennon. Five was the tide is high by Blondie. Six was keepon loving you by Rvo speedwagon. Number seven was the best of times bysticks. Number eight was giving it up for your love by Delbert Clinton.Nine, like I said, was Fogelberg...

...and number ten was hey nineteen bysteely Dan. So there's there's some few, there's a few songs about good timeson here. Now you have celebration, you have the best of times,so and then you have Dan Fogelberg, you know, around the holiday season. So it's a it's all right. Well, you know, it leadsme to wonder, we've discussed this in the past, how some songsthat are seasonal don't peek exactly the same time as a holiday they may represent. Correct. Yeah, we have about that during the Halloween one, right, right, and here we are in February. So I wonder if there'slike a it took a long time to compile these stats or something. Ithat to me it seems weird that that's when it would be at its peak. Maybe a little holiday hangover? Yeah, true, true, true. Butyeah, so that was the that was the chart. You know,some some good songs on there. Now how does this particular song compared toother songs on the album. I mean the song fits in. Obviously itstands out given the time of year, you know the story takes place,but it's a Fogelberg Song. Like I don't think there's really any mistaking thereis. It's kind of folksy, you know, a good storytelling, Ithink for Gogelberg does pen a good tale. I think that's something he is alwayswell known for, deservedly so. But yeah, and I think,like I said, I think it fits in. It's just, you know, the song just happens to be, you know, in the wintertime whenthis story takes place. Now I want to I'm trying to like push aheadquickly here because I wanted to talk about the lyrics. Okay, let's dothat. I'll tell you what, Dave sure, so before we get intothat. Actually, so, I don't know if Ayway knows, it's not, but this song is actually autobiographical. Now, Fogelberg was actually home visitingfamily in Peoria, Illinois and the mid s when he ran into his oldgirlfriend. And it turns out that girl was Jill Anderson Grulik, and shesaid they dated in high school and then after college she married and moved toChicago, while Fogelberg moved to Colorado to...

...pursue a music career, and whileboth were home visiting family, they ran into each other at a convenience storeand they split a sixpack and drank in her car for about two hours whilethey talked. So that's the that's the story. HMM, yeah, it'sthe lyrics. is nothing wrong with that. Drinking some beers consensually with an oldfriend or flame. Correct. Correct. Also, another tidbit. So Peoriarenamed Abington Street in the city's east bluff neighborhood. They called it FogelbergParkway. So there's actually a Fogelberg Parkway. Yeah, and Yoria. And thatstreet runs along where his high school is and runs into the intersection ofNorth Prospect and East Fry, the location of where Fogelberg ran into Jill.Shit, that is something else. You totally shock me there. I meanI was eager to say I'd love to live on Fogelberg Lane or whatever itwas there, but now knowing that they actually put that all together in sucha way, I'm very proud of them. Good job. I mean I don'tknow if how do you say the town again, Peoria, Peoria,Perea, Illinois. Good job. Now, I don't know. I mean maybeit's just happens stance that that was the street. They renamed the wherethat that goes by the convenience store. But the so the High School,Huh? He went there and then his dad, if I'm not mistaken,was like a music teacher or band leader there. So a couple fogelbergs gointo that to that particular school. Nice, it should renamed a high school towhile they were at it. Why didn't they? I don't know,I feel like that would make sense. My Bogelberg High Oh yeah, justjust go to go the whole way. Why stop at the at the park? And didn't rename the convenience store? Yah, know that the Folberg arrestor something. I mean, just like everything in the town, it's justcompletely Fogelberg all the time. I would probably I would be there. I'lltry to work at that convenience store if...

I could. Great job. Itould benefits people hanging on the parking lot drinking six packs. Yeah, justtalking, reminiscing. We live an old times baby. That's it. Yeah, and and you know, and now well, that's all good and sweet, you know, and I would totally sign off on giving Fogelberg his ownroad. HMM, these lyrics, Yikes, man, what are you guy?Yikes, Yikes. Well, all right, so, first off Ithink the song just kind of rambles on. All right, it's almost comical tome how this song just drags on and on as he sings the eventsof what happened, and it sorry, so basically sorry. So he runsinto an old girlfriend at a convenience store on Christmas Eve. You know,they went to grab a drink. Couldn't find an open bar, Yada,Yada, Yada. They bought a sixpack and drank it in our car.I mean, I can count The Times I've drank a sixpack in my carand my hands. It's actually I've never done it because I don't drink sixpacksof my car. Okay, by how many times have you look for analternative if a bar was closed? Ah, take that, scrooge. Never Ha, there we go. I'm telling you. You know, all right, but continue. Tell me why the lyrics suck so bad. But butan all right, yeah, before we go any further, by the way, we hear its songs gone wrong. Do not promote nor condone drinking anddriving. No, of course not. No, no, no, A. Nor do we promote drinking in the car with an X. I thinkthat's a bad idea on multiple levels. So just don't do that. Ithink that's a fifty fifty thing there. Drew doesn't approve of it, butI'm not against it at all. So if you what. Sorry, soyou're a married gentle sir? Yes, right, I am. Yeah,and so if you were, I don't know, back at your town,your home, and if you went into a store, you'd run into anold flame. Yeah, perhaps crystal of Crystal Pepsi Fame. Sure you runinto them. You know. Would you drink a sixpack in there, inher car? In her car? Yeah, why not? I Guess Self Control. I know who I love, Baby. You know what? I'ma downing. I just think it's weird.

A beer is not like a oneway ticket to Hump Town. I don't know what happens with you,drew. Maybe you drink a beer and you become a wild man in thepants come fromly off. I don't know if the pants are on in thefirst place. Well, there you go, spiked Eggnog all around for drew's parties. But yeah, I mean I don't see a problem with that.In the same in the reverse situation, if my wife ran into an oldflame and they decide to have a couple beers in the car, look atI, I'm hot, I'm with it, I'm all together, man. Anychick who leaves me for somebody else is delusional and has obviously, yeah, obviously I'm a hunk of meat that needs to be praised and held.I know what I think. I asked you to to come on the showman. Yeah, I'm the fails my good looks. Yeah, well,that's that's a problem with radio to is no one can see this handsome visage, visage, you know, and that make a great Christmas present for everybody. I should send him a glossied autographed in the tens. That's I thinkthat's what we should do. So, guys who want a glossy eight byten of Dave, please please write in. Yeah, and ripond to our show. Will have them over, will have them made up and we'll havedave autograph them and then we'll mail them out to you. We should probablyput a set date on that until like February, much like when this songcorrect charts, because I can book my glamor shots appointment in due time.You know what I mean, because I kind of want to diversify a littlebit for this whole photo thing. Maybe Cowboy Look, get a couple ofshots. Yeah, I'm just a head shot, but then a full bodyshot. Yeah, and then like me on a hobby horse or something.You know whatever. It's kind of run the gamut on the possible poses Icould do. You know what, man, you got to look up Oland Mills. Buddy. What the Hell is olden mill still olden mill? Idon't know if that's a like a local thing or not, but olden mills, they would always do like like school photography, and maybe that was justby me, but they would also do like I remember I was a kid, we would have like our Church would...

...do like a yearbook every like fiveyears or something like that. Olden Mills would be the group that would comeon like there their blue backgrounds and you know, and they could also spiceit up for you if you wanted. You could put like lasers in thebackgrounds. Sure, you know, get crazy with it. I don't know, mills, I don't know if the company that was used by my schoolwas called old and Mills. I'm not entirely sure. I am very familiarwith the whole background style things. Your kid in my era wanted the laserscorrect and nobody wanted that whole black profile with like one side of your faceis in the corner and then your full face is at the ball. Youknow what I'm talking about. That I know exactly what you're talking about.Yeah, did you ever get one of those? Nope, I think.I think I may or may not have gotten some lasers. HMM. Iusually was like the plane background. Now I got to dig up. Igot a photo of me at school photo. I know this is completely where we'reback down the rabbit hole a little bit, but I look like Iam crapping my pants. There's no other way to explain it. And Imight have the really can's been that many years? I don't remember, butmaybe we can share that in the future. Or maybe that's something I can signprint out and eight by ten a picture of a young me who lookslike, even if I wasn't crap my pants, I totally do not wantto be there and it shows. Yeah, I need to I need to tryto find some of my old pictures. I'll do that. I'll take thatas an extent for myself as well. I will try to hunt down someof my old elementary school photos. I'll tell you what that I mean. You have you have a kid. I mean they're those school photos arefreaking expensive. Man, I know we're getting off track here, but thethings, that's a freaking racket. Yeah, but you know what I do now? I don't buy like the big ass package of them. I justget the most simple package we did. I'm like yeah, yeah, I'mlike, well, if I want to, I can just scan it and freakingmake photoprints of my own at home. You know what I mean? Like, what the hello? I need to pay this freaking Wazoo for forall these pictures and touch ups and everything on. I don't want my kidtouched up, the pictures low whatever. He looks away, he looks he'sfucking eight years old. Yeah, break...

...what kind of controlling parents? It'slike, yeah, you need a photoshop that shit. My kidneys to lookperfect. We did the basic yeah, it's your point. It's like whatever. And also like it's just this is weird that they do all that.I'm like you're they're sitting in like sitting formally at school. It's just weird. That's not them, you know, any way to make a quick bookfuckers. You know I'm telling you. I'm telling you. This is nothow the Christmas spirit whatsoever. Let's get back now. It's not all correct. Yeah, let's get back to the saw and let's get back to thisparticular part. Okay, way, yes, please. So, all right.So where do we leave off? Okay, so they are drinking asixpack in her car, as we mentioned. Don't drink a drive, people.And so then she says she's married herself an architect, which actually,in real life, I researched that her husband was a physical education teacher,which honestly sounds like a dream job to me. I would love to teachJim Class. I don't know. Yeah, man, a floor hockey in thewinter with the ball in the spring. Yes, that's what I would thatwould be awesome. See, I think Fogelberg did him a favor there. Right, so he is an architect. You think architect, man, you'rethinking like the dad on the Brady Bunch, right. If you thinkyeah, Jim Teacher, I'm thinking like Kenny powers. So yeah, I'lltake Robert Reid. I don't know, but anyway. Right, either way, no matter what this man's occupation is, she's married to him. You know, she is a married woman, and then agrees to drink a sixerin her car with an ex boyfriend. Listen, the song says she wouldhave liked to say she loved the man, but she didn't like to lie.Kind of messed up. Right now they think this. So now,right there, thinking this happened in nineteen seventy five. Right, that's whatthey think. This this particular events happens. Right. So, at this pointFogelberg had a hit under his belt with his nineteen seventy four album souvenirs. Part of the plan was his first hit song, and that album wasproduced by Joe Walsh. So that's pretty...

...cool. At this point he's nota nobody. Right. So then, after finding out she's unhappily married,it sounds like old Fogelberg is putting on the moves when he says the yearshave been a friend to her and that her eyes were still as blue.Come on, Dan, I know you're a famous musician and all, butthe ladies married also stopped drinking in cars with married women. He's I don'tI know. I I strongly advocate against it. Oh, father drew.Mr Yeah, advocate advocating for celibacy or something. What do you what?Are you a priest? I mean for Real, much like Celibus sy?Well, I mean it's him on, he's a rounds. It sounds likehe's putting on some moves. Like, Dude, she's married. Come on, can't you just pay a lovely lady a simple compliment nowadays? Well,in one thousand nine hundred and seventy five, rather he could. He could havehate her that compliment when they were at the at the convenience store.Well, it's just you know now, but that. But then she bustsout, Hey, by the way, I'm married, but I don't know, I kind of don't like them. And then he's like looking pretty good. Well, your eyes are blue. That's what he said. He saidthe years. What did he say? The years have been kind to her. Yeah, so she looks good. SPI getting older. No harm inthat. Now I don't know if that's exactly what Dan said. He soundslike he probably could have said something else. You know, I don't know.Well, it's like yeah, I don't know, we DASS and thenhe's like, I like your eyes. I think he's flitting hairs. Youwere splitting hairs here, all over the place. There is a lyric whereI might be able to back you a little bit, but you haven't gottento it yet. I'm not sure if you're going to. Don't know.So then they RTE. So then they finished her drinks, which again,they maybe has three beers each, I guess, in two hours, butwhatever. And then they go their separate ways. And also also that guythat she was married to at that time. They wound up getting divorced not toolong after that. So, Gee, didn't see that one coming. That'sall I have for the lyrics. But what are what were you goingto bring up? Well, she did give him a kiss, but thatcould have been, you know, innocent...

...enough. But he does mention thebeer is empty and our tongues were tired. Yes, I thought about bringing itup and I was like maybe I might be reaching to begin with,but well, we are, because he's implying talking. That's what he's tryingto say. They we were talking for two hours. If anybody, ifwe did this podcast for two hours straight. You know, we probably have somenumb tongues, if you will. Nothing dirty, they're nothing grows.I mean, come on, you know, drew, this is Christmas and thefact that you're making it filthy. Hey, I'm not the one whowrote this song. Yet that's Mr Fogelberg. Yeah, but you're the one who'sreading all the dirty ass things into it. He's the one who's hittingon a married woman in a car while they drink a six pack of beer. Says you will Christmas Eve. Yeah, you and the MRS believe this isthe case, but I like to think of Dan Fogelberg is a goddamnsaint. I like Fogelberg, but in this particular instance I'm raising some redflags here anyway. So what is the song about? I think it's prettyobviously this point. The song is about some famous musician trying to bank hasthen married ex girlfriend in a car after tugging a sixpack on Christmas Eve.So I think that's what the song's about. Okay, well, I mean itdoes pay homage to the old Lang sign song where, I believe youwell the Yes, the audio of it, but there's a line in that song. Should old acquaintance be forgot and never brought out to mind? Shouldold acquaintance be forgot and days of old Lang sign will here we go inDan Fogelberg's song. There's old acquaintances, yet they are getting back together fora nice little chat, enjoying a six pack in a car. I wasn'tsay it wasn't just a chat, Dave he oh boy, you're never goingto let this go. No, no, hope you were going to make yeah, okay, all right. So you think it's a a Christmas song, not fit for Nana. She should...

...not listen to this because of theimplications of car sex happening. Here it is. There is Innuendo. Thereis a man who is trying to persuade a married female getting her hammered inher own car and then they drive home. While she drove home. I guesshe walked home, but still very responsible. Wa while he was.But then she had to drive home after a couple of beers. That's notgreat. Yeah, it's one thousand nine hundred and seventy five. I thinkthree beers was like the least anybody can possibly drink and drive in one thousandnine hundred and seventy five, while not wearing seatbelts and use them signals.But they went into joy, his name in vain. Yeah, but theyreally good. The cars back and they were just giant metal boxes. Imean, come Oh, yeah, if you got hit, you were itwas a tank. Yeah, now it's styrofoaming plastic. But yeah, thinehundred seventy five, they were built to last. This is true. Thisis true. All right, Dave, you ready to render our verdicts?Sure, sounds good to me. All right. So, Dave, letme ask you, same old length, signed by Dan Fogelberg. Do youthink this is a legit hit or a Christmas Song Gone Wrong? Well,I take an issue to what you said earlier. Were you believe the songkind of rambles on? I like the narrative of this song. I thinkit's very well written. Is Poetry in motion rather than rambling. I admittedlyam a fan of Dan Fogelberg. Now let's look at the criteria I thinkwe're trying to assign this particular episode. Is it very Christmas? Ee?No, I don't think it really is. But as a Dan Fogelberg Song,is a beautiful song. Man I like just about everything about it.I can't find any issue with it whatsoever. Is it something I put on thefire and decorate the tree to with my wife and kids? Wouldn't bemy first choice. Would be my last...

...choice? No, not that either. So I am here to tell you I believe in my heart of heartsthat this song is in fact a legit hit. Okay, all right,what about you, Drewsky? I respect your opinion as always, sir.Thank you, but key right. I know, listen. I've always beena fan of Dan Fogelberg, to you know, he has a smooth voice, great singer, is a good songwriter, but but this one, I don'tknow, man. And to your and yes, I do think thesong just rambles on and on. You know, it's over what five minutes? One of our listeners, Melinda, you know, she brought it upas well. It's I feel like it just kind of keeps going on andon. Almost feels like a family guy parody of a song, but it'sthe actual song. And and the fact this gets air play around the holidaysjust blows my mind. I think this is probably one of the worst holidaysongs out there. I would say. I don't think it's the worst.Okay, I would say either Hey Sanna by Carney and Wendy Wilson or sixtyseven percent of Wilson Phillips. That song is terrible and the stupid fucking hippopotamussong are easily the worst Christmas songs out there. I'm not familiar with thehippopotamus song. It's like a kid singing I want hippopotamus for Christmas. It'sthen that song sucks and I so we had a we had a work Christmaslike a virtual work Christmas party, the other day and our boss was like, well, you know my favorite song is, and I'm like, Ihope it's not that stupid hippopotamus song. She was like my favorite Christmas songis the Hippopotamus Song, and I was like all right, so let meclean up my resume, apparently, because I think that's long fucking his trash, and clean up my desk. Yeah, well, I don't. I haven'teven been to my desk since March. I. So I guess you outmy house. Yeah, but, drew, can I just interrupt youfor a second cause I have to ask you this. Had that, hadthis not been assigned to Christmas added not mentioned Christmas Eve or the snow turningto slush or whatever kind of elements that...

...would relate to the holiday season.We you still view it in the same light as you are right now?Would I still think it's a not a hit? So so, like asong gone wrong versus a Christmas Song Gone Wrong? Well, yeah, Imean, yeah, there's Christmas, the Christmas aspect to it. It doesn'treally affect my vote. Okay, so I would say I would say thisis a song gone wrong, even in a vacuum, it's a song gonewrong. H Yeah, wow, you scroogy bastard. Yeah, Hey,man, yeah, but, yeah, Hey, by the way, Hey, Sanna, terrible song, Hippopotamus Song, awesome, we know what it youknow what else, and I obviously we know. We were listening toChristmas songs out the Wazoo. I used to love that Bandaid Song. Dothey know it's Christmas? But you know what I'm talking about, right,yeah, yeah, but man, I was digging into those lyrics, fuckingpretentious millionaire sing in that trash. I was getting like fired up, likedo they know it's Christmas time at all? Well, well, who was it? Paul Young Boy, George, George Michael Simon Laban Bana, when, like eighty seven others. Yeah, Heyl. The continent does know that, since the main religion and about the bottom half of Africa follows Christianity,whereas the north follows Islam mostly. So yeah, I think they know it'sChristmas. Have a pretty good idea that they probably would. I think theyhave calendars. They're also they're whining about how there won't be snow in Africathis Christmas time. Like I'm pretty sure that's the least of their concerns.No, it looks like you know, it won't look like how Christmas looksto people that live in the north. Also, I don't think Florida getssnow, and Dee semmer is bandaid going to write them a fucking song?Maybe rich just in. The chorus is beautiful. The chorus is lovely andI you know it can relate to sorry about feeding the world. Yet sure, help those in need, but they're look good's not going to snow.I'm like, Fu fucking cares. Well, I was going to even say youlike this, the old say, same old Lang Sign. If youjust change the lyrics to something else, if you just like ignore the lyrics. It's a beautiful song, right,...

...even like I just asked you ifyou were in a vacuum. And yeah, rather they're not as Christmas, butI mean, I think it's constructed wonderfully. I just think it's theharmonizing everything else. Just beautiful, beautiful song, and sometimes, I guessit's like going to a popcorn movie right where I know I'm not going toget a lot of substance out of it, I'm just going to have a goodtime and enjoy it. So yeah, that that is kind of like thewhole band aid thing too, where it's just I don't know, I'mnot thinking too much into it, but I know you are and you're enragedby it. So Merry Christmas to all into all the good night. Okay, good talk. Yeah, I mean the people singing on that for thatmatter, but come on now, all right, anyway, what was Italking about? Oh Yeah, Sam Welding signed in Fogelberg. Yeah, Ithink it's a song. Got Wrong. So we are we are split andI am a grinch. So let's turn to the fans and see what theyhave to say? Cool, all right, the fans have spoken, and sixtyseven percent, two thirds, said that it is a song gone wrong. Wow, yeah, Huh. Take that. Fogelberg and Fogelberg Lane andFogelberg high and Fogelberg convenience store. I know right. MMM, Fogelberg's he'srolling over in his grave. One he's rolling out now going left. Songgone sounds gone wrong the listeners. I love Dan. It's not that Idon't like Dan. I think Dan's fantastic. I've been listening to him for thebetter part of thirty, probably thirty five years now. Right, he'sgreat this long, though I'm not a fan. Anyway. We had somefeedback. Tim At sixty two said really popular tune, especially during the NewYear. Valid point, and Melinda, at Melinda Barnett, said she wasn'tfamiliar with that song. So I looked it up and gave it a listen. Thanks a lot, man. That is officially one of the worst songsI've ever heard my life. Perfect for two thousand and twenty. So therewe go, Dany that's what we have. Wow, bunch of grinches, Itell you. All, yeah,...

...all, yeah, I'll try todo better next episode. Very Christmas, Mr Potter. Yeah, believe well, you know, hey, everybody's until their own opinion, but me,I'm a optimist. I'm a happy guy.
