The other day, “Chris Mills Is Living The Dream” came on randomly and reminded me of what a good listen his 2005 LP The Wall To Wall Sessions is. The mental image of the the tune’s first verse continues to inspire both hilarity and horror every time I hear it (see photo above.)

  1. I wrote about this song once and basically said it’s the best opening stanza in the history of rock n roll. Of course that’s just hyperbolic bs but it’s damn close.

  2. Once again, what an incredible song! Something I never would have discovered if not for this amazing site.

  3. Does that version include the explanation of the song about working in a pizza delivery place folding cardboard boxes and Chris’s co-worker asks him “So what do you do, man?” as if folding pizza boxes wasn’t enough, Chris explains that he’s a songwriter about to go on tour and the co-worker says “Dude you’re living the dream”. And carried on folding the boxes.
