On Wedding Day as part of Milliontown....

Alert the press, the first serious topic!

If Wedding Day had been included on Milliontown, where would it have been in the track order?

Never mind that.  Did you know Pygmy engagements were not long and usually formalized by an exchange of visits between the families concerned? The groom to be would bring a gift of game or maybe a few arrows to his new in-laws, take his bride home to live in his band and with his new parents. His only obligation is to find among his relatives a girl willing to marry a brother or male cousin of his wife. If he feels he can feed more than one wife, he may have additional wives.
Come on, you\'re a lion!

....but once he's run out of games, what on earth will they all do of an evening? :?

It would have replaced Snowman. In hindsight, I kinda wished it had now.

As we say in my country, "Aw hogwash!"

Snowman is brilliant, really helped me out this past year. :D

Would she play or sing, too? Or just be a kind of official groupie?

Speaking of snowman, what's that song actually about?  For some reason, i always thought it was about death, or being stuck in an inescapably horrible situation, but I was talking to my friend about this a while back, and he said 'nah... it's much more prog than that.  It's just about a man made of ice...'

Great song, anyway!  It was probably the last one I got into when I first bought 'Milliontown', but now i really love it!  I tend to find myself listening to the more song-like songs on Milliontown nowdays... really love No Me, No You and The Other Me; which I think verge on industrial rock in places...

Nah, your mate is thinking of the bollocks Genesis song 'Snowbound' ;-)
