2. isn't Robbie Robertson's "Somewhere Down the Crazy River," is it?

I liked a big hit video from the '90s?  I'll give myself overnight before I google that one.


No, #2 is more indy than that.

I'm not saying you liked the song that much, but I once told you I'd never seen the video & you then described it approvingly in some detail.

Just googled it.  I would never have remembered (and never had deciphered) that line.  But yeah, it was a great vid.

like a slow divorce
and I wished

Of a bad play where the heroes are right
And nobody thinks or expects too much
