Regardless, four decades later, nothing needs to be said about Boston beyond singing the first line ("I looked out this morning and the sun was gone") from the very first album's very first song, "More Than a Feeling." The song makes you think of summer, or a Labor Day rock 'n' roll song countdown, or coolers of Bud and the vague sense that, somewhere, someone is actually celebrating the holiday with a parade or something, but you aren't because you're at the lake and about to go water-skiing. -- Dave Amber
