I'm particularly fond of "Harlan." When I was an overintelligent teenage nerd,
Harlan Ellison's science-fiction stories were among the only ones I could find
that were as passionate, as sensitive and as angry as I was...and I remember the
first time I heard this song, and Pat singing "...A boy and his dog...Alone
against tomorrow..." I got a chill as I realized he'd read the same stories I
did, and was moved enough by them to write a song.
