"Illness Really Is the Final Frontier"
 
   Habitués of this site will know that musical mental images are far from unknown to me - the longstanding joke, with more than a grain of truth at its core, is that if you give me any group of characters long enough, I will eventually, inevitably, envision them as a band.

That said, last night I was bundled up in bed with a fever of 102° F (38.9° C) and such interesting chemicals as promethazine, codeine, psuedoephedrine, guaifenesin*, and interferon β-1a roaming around my system, and I'd fallen asleep with my iPod on. The result was a fever dream consisting of the most fantastically detailed, completely preposterous concert video. Picture it if you will: UF's Darth Vader and young master Skywalker of Tatooine on lead and rhythm guitars, HK-47 on bass, Rei Ayanami at the drums, giving it full power on a cover of Boston's "More Than a Feeling". (I realize the only person in that lineup who actually has a vocal range anything like Brad Delp's is probably Rei, but work with me a little, it made sense in the dream. :)

I woke up this morning and the sun was gone
Turned on some music to start my day
Then lost myself in a familiar song
I closed my eyes and I slipped away

It's more than a feeling
More than a feeling
When I hear that old song they used to play
More than a feeling
And I think you're dreaming
More than a feeling
'Til I see Marianne walk away
I see my Marianne walking away

So many people have come and gone
Their faces fade as the years go by
Yet I still recall as I wander on
As clear as the sun in the summer sky

It's more than a feeling
More than a feeling
When I hear that old song they used to play
More than a feeling
And I think you're dreaming
More than a feeling
'Til I see Marianne walk away
I see my Marianne walking away

When I'm tired and thinking cold
I hide in my music, forget the day
And dream of a girl I used to know
I closed my eyes and she slipped away
She slipped away

It's more than a feeling
More than a feeling
When I hear that old song they used to play
More than a feeling
And I think you're dreaming
More than a feeling
'Til I see Marianne walk away

- Boston
"More Than a Feeling"
Boston (1977)


There was no mention of the band's name that I can recall, but with a lineup like that I'm just going to assume they're called the Sith Lords. And just to add the cherry on top, I think they were playing the Hammersmith Apollo.

* As an aside, I can never see the name "guaifenesin" without automatically plugging it into the chorus of the Anthrax song "Efilnikufesin (N.F.L.)". "Efilguaifenesin! Nice fuckin' life!"
