I've never been to the bar for which this song
is named, but I intend to one of these days.
I love the song's laid-back, cheerful mood
which stands in contrast to the rather somber
songs on the Waiting for the Love Bus LP.
The song also has a terrific arrangement with
a tinkly keyboard line which reminds me of
Brian Wilson and sunny California in general.
The song ends with synthesized heavenly
chorus that sounds a bit like that lovely hymn
on Brian Eno's Apollo Atmospheres CD.
I'd like to think that this was Pat's intention
when he put this one together.
