Comment:

Rod and his new lady, Michelle, were assaulted and robbed at gunpoint as they got out of the car at (her) home the night of his birthday party. He was limping from a hip ailment, so getting struck in the head and knocked down has got him sore all over. We are all relieved that it wasn't worse. Such is life in post-Katrina New Orleans. As I was already working on this playlist, I thought I would name it for Rod's pain instead of just calling it Needled. Damn.

Excellent theme. Wonder if that Cliff Richard song is about getting in to heaven. All the best to Rod.
