On the 2SER show "The Attic" this afternoon was Part 1 of a Patti Smith feature. I couldn't stay in to hear all of it, but was listening long enough to hear her Gloria. Off the Horses album. When I was a kid in the late 1970s the local AM community radio station, based at the university, played it all the time. Although I've probably not heard the song for over twenty years, I still remember the lyrics--amazing. Singing along with the radio today, I felt more alive than I have for ages.
