I remember once, three years ago, listening to this song while sitting in the library and working on my thesis. I looked out the window, and it was snowing. And I thought it was the most perfect thing ever.
First heard it on Six Feet Under; similar reaction.
From the TV show The Prisoner: “I am not a number, I am a free man.”
Sad to see the news that Patrick McGoohan — the British actor who created the strange and wonderful and difficult to describe series The Prisoner — has died. If you’ve never seen it, it’s best not to say too much. The episode “The Chimes Of Big Ben,” is perhaps the best stand-alone piece of the series, as good as any place to start. Very ’60s, but if you can get past that, so good.
