I expect that all us groovy fookers know that the original lyris were "I'm so bored of you" (not I'm so bored of the USA).
Spookily enough at the age of 16 hearing this (rather than all the prog rock crap that the upper 6th played in the common room) changed my life. Had me hair cut short, bought some seconds Levi drainpipe jeans from the market and was given my uncle's genuine WW2 army shirt (desert). Cool or what?
And as I mellow I can even listen to some of the prog rock crap nowadays. And other genres I hated at the age of 16.
My stories very similar Malambu - having been told by the 6th formers that Bowie and Roxy Music and TRex were crap and that I should listen to Greenslade and Yes, after I heard Anarchy in the UK my mate cut my hair, I bunged away my flares and the job was a good un. was a proper moment of change Punk. I don't think younger people quite get just what it was like...still can't listen to prog though
