I grew up in Kansas City with good blues and jazz music playing all around me. There's a Charlie Parker memorial with a statue of Bird a block away from where I went to college. My Dad had West Coast jazz playing in the house all the time. My (much) older brother couldn't get enough of 70s and 80s fusion. I think we all know the proper place for this this song in the grand scheme of things (notice I said song and not group). Sheesh. We were all having a nice little chat about a funny song that we could all relate to. Talk about The Evil Popcorn Man ruining the mood:

I'm sorry, I didn't realize that everyone should only say positive things about YouTube clips that people posts on this forum.

I like the comment somebody left on the Youtube video: "沒關係,我的英文也不好"
"They only like me for my looks and personality"

I saw Josh(one of the band members) couple times at the church. I did not know he is in a band until now.
