Stupid Moments in Rock History, Part 1:

Well, there was the time I overheard a guy in a record store asking the clerk if he knew the song about "summertime" and "rain on my face".

I kinda thought I knew that it was the Alarm, but I didn't say anything. I still wonder why. I think I just didn't want to come across as a know-it-all, which is a first. So even though it would have helped the guy out, I didn't do anything. Maybe I didn't want to be responsible for more Alarm fans in the world.

But now I feel like Peter Parker when he found out what happened to his Uncle Ben, except for the Uncle Ben part. I just kinda feel bad about it. I hope the guy found it. It was back in the day when you couldn't just look it up on

So, if you're out there, reading this, it's called "Rain in the Summertime" and it appears on Eye of the Hurricane and The Best of the Alarm. It's not such a bad song. It's just that they were so obviously trying to sound like U2. You know, like Coldplay now.

My apologies for being stupid while trying to avoid being a jerk.
