Hope this doesn't bring anyone down but this song, always a favorite of mine, has some new meaning for me. In January, my water skiing buddy and lake neighbor's 19 year old son was killed in a car crash. Woman, presumably drunk, went the wrong way on a divided road with a median, without lights on at night. Impact was likely 50 mph each vehicle, very little braking from lack of skid marks. She survived. Anyway, I helped my friend out as he requested a video for the services and between video I had of his son out on my boat and stuff he provided I made a nice video for him.
There was a long sequence in the video where the son was wake surfing behind the boat, the song playing on the speakers was Pinball Wizard. He was singing along in the video. Can't imagine I'll ever hear this song again with same joy I used to. Sorry for the downer story.
