...is such a good song
I'd like to take this moment to express my love for Mountain's 1970 hit song, "Mississippi Queen." When I hear it I can't help but shout "Yeah!", pump my fist, sing the chorus (only the chorus) in a deep man's voice, and then regress into maniacal laughter. Indeed, this song has a strange and welcome power over me. And then it's over--two and a half magical minutes later it sputters out like a broken combustion engine. Sometimes I like to ask people I'm meeting for the first time, "Mississippi Queen" or "Jet City Woman?" That way I know to avoid the wackos who prefer "Jet City Woman." What a stupid song! "Mississippi Queen" all the way.
