Sometimes people do stuff that is annoying. Other people, that is. At times like this one recalls Richard Thompson’s song “Can’t Win” from his 1988 album Amnesia. The lyrics end:
The nerve of some people, the nerve of some people,
I don’t know who you think you are.
What follows is a blistering guitar solo expressing that sentiment. There is an even more incendiary version on Thompson’s live album More Guitar (available from his website as a CD and download).
This YouTube clip of Thompson and band performing the song is from January last year, filmed by a punter in maybe the front row. So, not DVD standard but, you know, wow. Takes a minute or so to get going but it is a great performance of a great song. And the next time someone pisses you off, it may help to sing the chorus quietly to yourself. Works for me, anyway.
