Interesting little trivia.

Those of you old enough to remember the group The Ides Of March (Vehicle 1970, L.A. Goodbye 1971) who grew up in Berwyn, may not know that in their reunion LP 'Ideology: Version II.0' which was released in 2000, they have a cut entitled, 'Wild Eyed South Side Boys...'

According to their official web site it's a tribute to the White Sox. A tribute to the 2000 club.

If it's somehow possible I wouldn't mind hearing that cut or a piece of it if it could be posted.

I seen the Ides of March at Notre Dame HS when I was still in grade school.

Didn't know about the Sox tribute.

Somehow I don't think the lyrics for Vehicle would be to PC today:D:

"Hey,well I'm the friendly stranger in the black sedan .
Oh wont you jump inside my car.
I got pictures , got candy, I'm a lovable man, I'd like to take you to the nearest star.
I'm your vehicle woman
By now I'm sure you know that
I love ya
Need ya
I want to , got to have you child
Great God in heaven , you know I love you"

Try this: Linky (http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&token=ADFEAEE4791CD24BAB7420C99B34419BE024F006D956 E9AE0D224952D0BA3349814378E448E9D0CDE5A836F425E3F9 31A55D10D1CAEE53B0DB6C3F3F87EBA1705843&sql=10:rwabqjkqojka)

Click the sound link on track #15. It's a reworking of "Wild Eyed Southern Boys", which Jim Peterik (singer/guitarist for Ides of March and keyboardist for Survivor) wrote for .38 Special (among other songs).

You can hear a snippet of it on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00004ZBCO/qid=1119050795/sr=1-7/ref=sr_1_7/103-8627451-2259053?v=glance&s=music) - it's track 15, which for some reason is listed as 'untitled.'

Apparently they also have a Cubs tribute called 'Finally Next Year.'

IT was cool to hear mention of the Big Hurt, 35th & Shields, etc. But dear god, that song sounds horrendous.

Remember back in 1985 Dennis DeYoung reworked his song "Southbound Ryan" into "Run Sox Run"? They used to play it before the start of every home game that season, but it was never made available commercially. Wondering if anyone has a copy of this somewhere...
