    Dead ... or passed?

    I can't help noticing the regular stream of posts in Bad Dog observing when someone dies. I also notice the preferred phrase to use is "X has passed".

    Oh, what a lucky man he was. Moog solo: ducky or yucky?

    Let's do what we do best -- talk about 50-year-old songs. The solo at the end of "Oh, what a lucky man he was" (@3:20) is an early example of the Moog synthesizer's use in pop music. I've heard it called self-indulgent and twaddle. Yet, after all the years, I still like it -- it's certainly...
