  1. it’s an alright jam… let’s hope the rest of the album is that exciting… let’s also hope for some of that old fashioned weirdness too (which the jam lacks)

    beware! her twitter page is not very “wise” now… just a bunch of advertising for the new album.

  6. u are are all hearing impaired. This is absolute shit. “WAITING FOR D TRAIN” are the only lines to the song. The rest is her screaming like she’s having an exorcism.

  7. Paco my friend..nobody else could have said it better … What you hear during the entire bit is “waitee fo da dee tray!!” followed by sounds that resemble a wild turkey about to get axed.
    However, to her credit, as someone else mentioned, she’s up and active at 76. Perhaps though, she should find other pursuits?
