I have these little obsessions. You know this. I am goofily infatuated, for example, with the film Highlander (and the television series as well). The sequels can all go hang, as far as I’m concerned, but the first film and the TV series were just plain cool (in a schlocky sort of way).
What? Shut up. I don’t make fun of your little obsessions, do I?
OK, sure, I do, but not on the Internet, where just any dog could read them.
Aaaaanyway… I adore this stuff. I especially adore the music Queen did for the soundtrack. It’s schmaltzy and rocky and just straight-up over-the-top nonsense, and it’s gorgeous. I had to cover something from Highlander. It was a kind of spiritual call.
This is my answer to that call, in all of its absurd glory, as played on May 19th at a local venue.
