  2. Aprapo of nothing, Check out this hauntingly beautiful sequence from Wes Anderson's masterpiece THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS. The singer/songwriter is the great 90's grunger Eliott Smith. Google him (Eliott Smith) to learn why this scene is especially poignant given his (Smith's) personal bio.

  13. Yeah, casablanca, your song was most people's introduction to Chicago at the time. And Terry Kath's solo on it is one of the best guitar solos ever recorded in rock. Period. Funny you associating Chicago with your dad. I also associate Chicago with my dad but from the other end of the spectrum in a way. Cause he loved Chicago. The first memory of listening to music I have is when I was about five or something & dad listening to Chicago in the living room on his "hi-fi."
