Adelaide gets paid out a lot by the Melburnians here, and in some ways I think rightfully so. But it's still one of two of my hometowns, it's where I was born, and I've grown attached to many places in it. And even though spending a week in Melbourne recently opened my eyes a bit on what an Australian city should be like, I still love that Adelaide is surrounded by beautiful green hills, I just love the natural area, but I sometimes wish there was more to do in the city itself, and I think there are many more important ways to improve it.

Seems a few non-Australians here know people from Adelaide, which is pretty cool. See, I'd love to move to the Netherlands sometime, myself.

I just got done with a two hour meeting.

I don't know how I made it through.

Adelaide is just too easy to pay out! But I really have nothing against the place, and want to go there. Seriously thinking about doing the Overland at some point this year.

And ouch, phanan, that doesn't sound like a riveting way to spend your day.

You know what bugs me? Good songs with really bad titles. Case in point: Bill And Ben by Catherine Wheel. And probably half the songs U2 released in the eighties.

It certainly wouldn't be my first choice at 9am in the morning.

Phanan, I downloaded Quadrophenia just a bit ago. Your thoughts?

U2 aren't all that bad with titles. Maybe a couple here and there, but not "half the songs" in the 80s.

Fantastic album. I think it goes on for too long in some places, but overall, you can't go wrong with it. I think it's better than Tommy, but it doesn't compare with Who's Next, although a lot of other people seem to think it does.

Haha, you're completely right with BAB. That's a great song, but I overlooked it a long time simply because of the title. There are a lot of terrible titles from shoegaze albums, actually.

Let's take just one album. Pride, The Unforgettable Fire, 4th Of July, Bad, Indian Summer Sky, Elvis Presley And America. That's over half the album.

I've not yet listened to Tommy, but I have Who's Next, which is awesome.

How are The Unforgettable Fire, 4th of July, and Bad poor titles?
