T o my eternal pride, I can’t remember if this is a Coke or a Pepsi commercial they’re using it for these days. In my day (the ‘70s), I think they used this for a Coke ad, which is fitting when you consider that the 21st century seems content to recycle old ideas. I was going to go off on a tangent here about the glut of old creative media (movies, music, art) strangling the growth of new creative media, but my poor little brain just wants to look out the window today and whistle. The flip side (the “down” side?) comes from the same album, Nilsson Schmilsson. Both tracks are identical to the elpee version. End transmission. I jest, since those two previous sentences were pretty perfunctory (though they can’t all be “tripping daisies under a mad globe of midges” I suppose).
