    OK people. You hear a song and you wonder where they got the inspiration from. The other day, some DJ was talking about where and what Foreigner conceived this song from.



    I thought it was about drinking or it seems to be about drinking BUT it turns out that Gramm and Jones were at a hockey game. A player was concussed then the PA announcer said he had double vision and there it was for them.

    Contribute one that you know or heard about...

    Jimi Hendrix apparently wrote the lyrics to "Rainy Day, Dream Away" after his gig at the Miami Pop festival. Southern Florida had a bad drought that year, and they seeded the clouds. This apparently caused torrential downpours the second day of the festival.
