On the heels of the biggest Minnesota Wild win of the season (yes Iâ€™m calling it) I figured it would be an appropriate time to blog about this song.
Warren Zevon and his friend Mitch Albom wrote this song and it was released on Zevonâ€™s 2002 album, â€œMy Rideâ€™s Hereâ€ which he released just before he found out he had terminal mesothelioma.
Hereâ€™s a link to a youtube clip of the song. You can also find the song in the treasure trove of trade friendly music I posted earlier in a concert that should be called â€œA Night with Warren Zevon.â€
Now this post could go in any number of directions but Iâ€™m sure Iâ€™ll post on Zevon and his brilliance again.
In any case I found out this week that Kevin Smith is making a movie based on this song. Smith who directed â€œClerks,â€ â€œMallrats,â€ â€œJay and Silent Bob Strike Back,â€ â€œDogma,â€ and numerous other great films is a big fan of the New Jersey Devils. I can only presume he likes UND grad Zach Parise as well.
Look for the film in 2012, letâ€™s hope it comes to Jamestown and our new six screen theater.
