For Sunday: the Steve Miller Band sings “The Joker”

My friend Cathleen and I talked about this song the other day. Then I listened to it again, and man, it’s too much. I need to admit also that Cathleen remembered the lyrics more accurately than I did.

 

 

But we were so young in those days!

 

 

“I’m a joker, I’m a smoker, I’m a midnight toker . . . “

  1. Nooooo! No! My most hated song in the world! Except for maybe “I’m a man, yes I am.” Or “American Woman.” No, it has to be The Joker, because the lyrics “I’m a picker, I’m a grinner” just horrify me!
