10,000 MANIACS " Verdi Cries " Such a damn beautiful song!--
Man oh man, I freaking LOVE this song! Actually I love this ENTIRE album!!! The first time I heard it was in 1987 or '88 when I stole it from my sister. She owned the cassette version and I didn't know anything about the band, but I just wanted to take something of hers. I was a hardcore punkrock skinhead, but I instantly fell in love with this album! Ever since then I have owned it at least twice on CD & two copies of it on vinyl. I remember giving one vinyl copy to Marc McFinn, my best friend, several years ago. He loves the 10,000 MANIACS also. Who doesn't? Well, many people don't, I know that. Someone recently gave me some shit on fb when I posted a song or two. And what's up with this band re-forming several years back, with OUT Natalie Merchant?!? They even recorded an album & toured! Has anyone heard the album? I haven't, and I don't want to. The snippets of songs I HAVE heard, sucked. I'd rather remember them this way. Amen.
