Thunderclap Newman Vs Wilco - Something In The Air

Recommended Posts

"Something in the Air" was a UK #1 single for three weeks in July 1969. Numerous artists have covered the song, including The Mandrake Memorial, Labelle, Tom Petty, the Eurythmics, and Wilco.

According to Wikipedia, "Pete Townshend, The Who's guitarist, was the catalyst behind the formation of the band." "Originally titled Revolution, (the song was) later renamed to avoid confusion with the Beatles' 1968 (hit)."

"Something in the Air" was a UK #1 single for three weeks in July 1969.

The song only got to #37 on the Billboard USA charts. I liked the track. I remember hearing it quite a bit back in '69. I am surprised that it didn't score highter on the charts. Maybe it did well in our market and fared more poorly in other areas of the country. That vid is also from 1969 and was filmed at the Beat Club. I have a 38meg .mpg file of that same performance. The song is from the album, "Hollywood Dream" also released in 1969. PM me if you want a copy of the vid or the album in mp3 format.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
