In pursuit of symmetry

For reasons we need not go into, I dug out an old Mott the Hoople tune, All The Way From Memphis, and discovered there actually is a town named Oriole, Kentucky.

I was very much hoping the local AAA ballclub was the Oriole Baltimores. Alas.

I rather like the roadhouse warmup in Memphis, and the song is nicely satirical, but I could certainly have done without the saxophone torture and rape. What is it about reed players that they think we like to hear geese being tossed into wood chippers?
