    Eels

    Who here likes the music of Eels?
    Those who do a lot will know the connection.
    Just listening to them, drunk, on Xmas Eve. Fantastic.
    I don't know the lyrics to all the songs that well, but is there any songs he mentions his dad? I know there's, "Things the Grandchildren Should Know". Which is actually one of my favourite songs of his.

    "I'm turning out just like my father, though I swore I never would. Now I can say that I have love for him, I never really understood what it must have been like for him, living inside his head. I feel like he's here with me now; even though he's dead".

    That has to be my favourite lyric of all time.

    I forgot, [language]

    "Daddy was a drunk, a most unpleasant man. Asleep on the floor, just inside the front door, with a smile underneath his red nose. The wrong look his way, well that could really wreck his day. And believe me when I say, it would wreck your day too".

    Darn I was hoping for a cuisine thread, I haven't had any eel stew in a long time and now I'm going to spend all day tomorrow looking for some fresh eel.

    Eels up inside ya, finding an entrance where they can.

    I got a warning for this thread...
    Anyway, although I can't remember making this thread, I am interested in knowing if there is any more songs about his dad. I think his sister committed suicide; any about her?

    Don is going to make them into pets; Trakar is going to eat them, and the thread is about a band?
