Hmmm.. If you took both those songs back far enough, they have that total
McGuinn/Byrds Guitar sound -- which, of course, almost 33% of all decent
Pop songs written since 1960's have); another friend of mine claims that
U&R sounds vaguely Who-esque; to me, it sounds somewhat New-Wavey,
especiallly in the start-stop, build-fall dynamics of it; I imagine Matt
Murphy in the "Strange Advance" Red Diagonal-Zipper Leather Top when I hear
his vocal. (Those of you under 20, or Americans, or both can ignore the
above reference.)

	It also, as a song, completley rocks my world, and manages to pull
a Thrush Hermit, in that the song induces me to look back wistfully on
every shitty long-distance relationship that hurt like hell.
