Bands I was a part of covered Norman songs occasionally, mostly "I Wish We'd All Been Ready" and "Why Should the Devil Have All the Good Music."

Grew up in a Baptist-run small Southern town, so got a real aversion to anything that even skirts the line into Christian culture.  But just checked this out and the Brian Wilson comparison is no exaggeration.

This sounds intriguing.

The Barkley Marathons. It's up on Netflix now and it was terrific.
