Re: was brown-eyed women about the brown eye?

i always thought of the song as being about an alcohol sales man during prohibition. "1920 when he stepped to the bar, drank to the dregs of the whiskey jar 1930 when the wall caved in he made his way sellign red-eyed gin"

the song goes on to talk about the problems in the family and the extreme poverty because of the family business going under due to the laws. granted the problems of this theory are that prohibition was established in 1919 and ended in 1933. but i have looked into that and it wasnt truly enforced until 1929. i could be completely wrong but that is what i have got out of the song.

cool. Did they still have videos of surgeries and such as their backdrop?


they were low on the bill I think they played second after Rollins Band and didn't have much in the way of stage props

Its weird to think of where peoples heads are at. I try not to think about feces on a daily basis. I love Brown Eyed Women because its a song that takes you back through time and space. Why would you ever associate that song with the "brown eye" I guess its a stab at a joke. Which is very funny. If your 10. L.O.L.

^^^^^^ Thanks man, I agree. i joined these boards the day they opened, but stopped posting after seeing how immature everyone is (still check them though for rumours, etc.). But These are the same people who post on it everyday at all hours....not sure if they even have jobs or not. It's why people think deadheads are deadbeats.

Sounds like the message boards for blink 182 or some other 15 year old thread.

you jumping in on it too? Looks like you clicked in on the thread cause the word brown eye turns you on?
