Watering hole in my head
Watering hole in my head
Watering hole, the hole in my head
I stretched and I scratched and I pulled at that hole
That watering hole in my head

In my head
In my head

But every night one by one
All of the beasts I once ran from
Crawl out of the darkness and into my bed
These vultures of light they must be fed

In my head
In my head
In my head
In my head

Watering hole in my head
All that I pray is one night's rest
But those creatures arrive with a thirst they want quenched
And as hard as I fight they still get in
To my head
That watering hole
In my head

lol....depending on the perspective, you might mean LESS PANTIES!!  I'm close to going +1 to 8 on this, has a great drinking vibe to it despite the titular "watering hole" being a hole in her head.....gonna have to ponder that one a bit....LLRP!!

Fiona?  yeah, maybe, but there's a smattering of Joan Osborn buried in the mix as well.  That is not a bad thing, in either instance.

Yes, she auctioned panties (clean) on stage at the show I caught. The show, not the knickers, I was outbid.

Quite the show-woman.

Great lyrics for describing what Schizophrenia or a bad trip is like...whining fits.

You're now whining as well, haven't you noticed?



 
Not really, how so?  Oh I whine about songs--guilty there.  I think whining about songs is the whole point to comment.  I don't whine about other comments except when they are whining about comments.  So it is thrice removed whining and if this makes no sense then you are not alone.
A good morning at work so far thanks rp. A very nice smattering of music from down under yum
 

minus two for that goofy clapping

Can't you just get those snippets of info from one of the various fanzines?  The comment board is for honest comments.  This isn't Spin on-line.  Why anyone would ever want to read one of those rags is beyond me.  One person's crazy is another's brilliant.  We have diversity of opinion here.  Quit whining.

Like most public comment forums on the internet there is a mixed bag of contributors. And like you I am grateful for the many insights and snippets of info that can be found here and frustrated with some of the crazies that inhabit the same space. 

Overall though, after being glued to the interwebs since they were available, I can honestly say that RP is an outstanding example of crowdsourcing information as well as the best radio station on the planet.

I need to hear this like I need a (waterin') hole in my head.

the station is great ... I've been listening for a few years...I dont like  every song I hear but that's okay... I like the whole ambience of it ...somebody is working hard to make it work and to me it works better than any station I've ever heard...I can handle someone liking something I don't ...I should avoid looking at reader comments though because of phrases like" the rp crowd"  that some listeners I guess feel obligated to share. 
Keep doing what your doing ...Bill I guess it is...you  are very good at it 
i just need to avoid the comments

The RP demographic seems to have morphed a bit since you probably began listening. At least, that's my take from the song comments the past few years. This is hopefully good for Bill & Rebecca's revenue stream. Otherwise, I'd like for them to play the 8s, 9s and 10s of long-time supporters more often! :-)

I think fredriley said it perfectly.  When ever this song comes on I stop what I am doing. Love this song!

I was thinkin' Adele, but what do I know...This is pretty good.

saw Missy live on https://new.livestream.com/livestreamsessions/missyhiggins on the 16th, which has the archived studio performance with lots of photos, comments etc. check it out! {#High-five} bought the album the next day of course, wonderful!
Always liked Missy Higgins.  Thanks, Bill.
This song grabs you by the scruff of the neck and drags you away from whatever you're doing, because whatever you're doing isn't anything like as important as this song. Missy, your wish is my command :o). 9 from the smitten Nottingham jury {#Hearteyes}

When Bill said it was Missy Higgins I had to come here and check, was sure it was Ms Jenssen...

A bit overdone on the voice production.  
This has a good feel to it.
Yes!
Thought it was new Fiona{#Hungry}
Nice.  Too bad I have to wait a month for it to be available in the U.S.

I'm digging this beat!


not too bad.
Enjoyed that.
