“Making Believe” by George Jones, country singer. For some reason, he was very popular with early LA punks. Social Distortion was an Orange County band. I saw them for the first time in Summer 1992 somewhere in northern Orange County. I think it was some sort of “ballroom,” weird place for a concert. But it was a huge venue.
There was this hot little punk chick all dressed in black standing next to me for most of the show staring at me with that zombie, dead-eyed stare. Of course, being an idiot, I blew it with her. There’s a procedure for picking up women at concerts.
Here they are at CBGB’s in New York in 1992, the same year this song came out.
