Does the release of a "Very Best" compilation mean that the record company is trying to jog people's memories about the band right before a NEW CD comes out? Or is that just wishful thinking? :o I never thought of this. I like the way you think. I agree, there could be more to it than meets the eye

I see the love/hate debate over String of Pearls is still ongoing, and has even invaded the thread's topic heading,lol. My son is one that loves it. He's loved SoP since Dim Light came out, and he was about 7 yrs old then. Steve is 23 now, and it's still one of his favorite SA songs, I think. I'll ...

Re: Playlist: The Very Best of Soul Asylum out 01/25

You are absolutely right. Songs don't have to be logical to be good. The lack of logic that I pointed out was more to reinforce my second point, being that the song isn't saying much of anything at all. You aren't the first to say that it's a "fun" song. While I'm a huge fan of fun, I don't think "...

Re: Playlist: The Very Best of Soul Asylum out 01/25

I had never thought much about the 40 year time gap, but actually in reflecting upon it, it does make sense with the song, in that things are cyclical. It's kind of showing how every little thing becomes interrelated. The pearls at the end aren't necessarily the pearls from the beginning, at least ...

Re: Playlist: The Very Best of Soul Asylum out 01/25

What triumph and phil said. Also, I agree with your pick of the songs that should have been included. Come on guys, what's wrong with String of Pearls? :D And what elese should have been included - Marionette! Yeah, the compilation is not even remotely representative of the band's "body of work". An...
