We Interrupt this Social Networking site...

... to bring you this soothing cover of Neil Young's "Albuquerque", performed by Red House Painters in 1996. Never before have three stanzas of musical history captured so well our fair burg; driving whilst getting high, eating country ham and eggs, and nobody caring who you are, even if you're famous.

I speak for many when I say that part of the charm of where we have chosen to grow our roots is described pretty accurately in this song. All he forgot to mention was green chile.

Well, they say
that Santa Fe
Is less than ninety miles away,
And I got time to roll a number
and rent a car.
Oh, Albuquerque.

I've been flyin'
down the road,
And I've been starvin' to be alone,
And independent from the scene
that I've known.

So I'll stop when I can,
Find some fried eggs
and country ham.
I'll find somewhere where
they don't care who I am.
Oh, Albuquerque,

He was high & spaced it out but I know he meant to include chile.
