    If you have never listened to the album "Chicago XI" from way back in 1977 or it has been years, consider doing so for the song entitled: Policeman.

    It sums up the job and probably someone on the job you know rather well.

    I was going through my vinyl this weekend and hadn't heard that song in years.

    CHICAGO lyrics - Policeman



    (Words and music by Robert Lamm)

    Everyday he wakes up
    As his bare feet hit the floor
    Grabs a cup of coffee
    Straps his Magnum on once more
    Feeds the cat he lives with
    Since his wife walked out the door
    In nine years he'll retire with a pension.
    Everyday he suffers
    'Cause he sees all kinds of pain
    Sometimes feels helpless
    In a world that's gone insane
    Then he wins a battle
    It restores his faith again
    It's only human kindness he is after.
    He is a Policeman, you know
    All the years and nothing to show
    He is a Policeman, you know.
    Every night he comes home
    With a six-pack all alone
    Feeds the cat he lives with
    He picks up the telephone
    Needs to talk with someone
    But the only love he's known
    Was lost forever, he is a Policeman.
    He is a Policeman, you know
    All the years and nothing to show
    He is a Policeman, you know
    All the years and nothing to show

    A real music format without the clipping or compression of AACor MP3/4.

    One is an audio enthusiast or just one of the iPod rabble.

    G-d bless McIntosh tube power amps!









    But then, I was never an Airedale.... BWAHAHAHAHA!

    For the younger guys, Peacemaker by Cowboy Mouth is a decent cop song.

    It just keeps getting better, don't it?
    Wow, retirement must be good to you. Them's some high end stuff there. You get the oil suspended triple diamond stylus needle on the turntable for pure sound isolation as well?

    I have not heard Chicago for a long time. They have a sound that I like for style, which I like better than a lot of the, (what's it called), new wave stuff.

    That was great! Loved the lyrics and the music. I've always been a Chicago fan.
