    Personally I think that VAisForEagleLover's interpretation (a reminder to the Americans) makes more sense, because all of the references probably wouldn't have made any sense to a lot of Russians.
    Freypower's comments about nightlife/culture are spot-on.

    I completely agree that the song is directed towards Americans.

    And of course, I'm from Finland - a country that sort of kissed our neighbor's, then-Soviet Union's behind during the so called (stupid) Cold War. Seems that we're still afraid of not doing it. Me? I don't want to go deep into this. Let's just say that things aren't so black'n'white...(But gimme Stravinsky over a hamburger any day!)

    You can call me VA! You don't need to type that entire handle out over and over. I wasn't thinking about that when I picked it. It's a play on words, for those who don't know, because the Commonwealth of Virgina's motto is "Virginia is for Lovers".

    So VA it is. I must admit I felt a bit frustrated, checking that every letter is in place!
    Personally I wish people would call me "Toni" (which is my first name) rather than "chaim" (which is Gene Simmons's original first name, although I love Gene!)

    I'll try to remember that, Toni. I think the only other person who regularly gets called by his real name rather than his screenname is Austin ( WalshFan88 ) and I'm not even sure how that happened, lol, but we can add another to the list! You can facilitate it by putting "Toni" in your signature. On another board, I had this as my signature:

    - Nancy

    Thus, I got called that pretty regularly as a result.

    Always in our hearts, Never forgotten

    Yeah, maybe I'll do that. But it's not that it kills me when people call me "chaim". That's my "name" here, after all! I guess I was in a funny mood when I wrote that post.

    Happy 31st anniversary to The Allnighter

    Smuggler's Blues is my favorite Glenn Frey solo song.

    I'll do a track by track rating later today.

    UCR's take on the 31st anniversary of The Allnighter:

    http://ultimateclassicrock.com/glenn-frey-allnighter/

    They say the success of it compared to his other albums had to do with having Jack Tempchin as co-writer. Ummm...
