Rapture by Blondie Lyrics Baileys Irish Cream

Great Lyrics ...Best Commercial for Baileys


Toe to toe
Dancing very close
Barely breathing
Almost comatose
Wall to wall
People hypnotized
And they're stepping lightly
Hang each night in Rapture

Back to back
Spineless movement
And a wild attack

Face to face
Sadly solitude
And it's finger popping
Twenty-four hour shopping in Rapture

Fab Five Freddie told me everybody's fly
DJ's spinning I said my, my
Flash is fast, Flash is cool
Francois sais pas, Flashe no deux
And you don't stop, sure shot
Go out to the parking lot
And you get in your car and you drive real far
And you drive all night and then you see a light
And it comes right down and lands on the ground
And out comes a man from Mars
And you try to run but he's got a gun
And he shoots you dead and he eats your head
And then you're in the man from Mars
You go out at night, eatin' cars
You eat Cadillacs, Lincolns too
Mercuries and Subarus
And you don't stop, you keep on eatin' cars
Then, when there's no more cars
You go out at night and eat up bars where the people meet
Face to face, dance cheek to cheek
One to one, man to man
Dance toe to toe
Don't move too slow, 'cause the man from Mars
Is through with cars, he's eatin' bars
Yeah, wall to wall, door to door, hall to hall
He's gonna eat 'em all
Rapture, be pure
Take a tour, through the sewer
Don't strain your brain, paint a train
You'll be singin' in the rain
I said don't stop, do punk rock

Well now you see what you wanna be
Just have your party on TV
'Cause the man from Mars won't eat up bars when the TV's on
And now he's gone back up to space
Where he won't have a hassle with the human race
And you hip-hop, and you don't stop
Just blast off, sure shot
'Cause the man from Mars stopped eatin' cars and eatin' bars
And now he only eats guitars, get up!

Ready For Big Brother Season 14 2012 on CBS

The Women of BB 14
A few notes on the new cast members for Big Brother 2012 -Big Brother 14.  There are 12 in the house and will be joined by 4 with experience.  As always with Surivivor or BB, CBS tells us something like "there has never been a twist as big as this," or something to that effect.  This year the promo spots promise at least 4 blockbuster twists.

Much of the initial publicity may be centered around one of the houseguests being a former Playboy Playmate of the Year ...Kara Monaco has graced the cover of Playboy several times and was Playmate of the Year 2006.

Then there is another attempt to cash in on the Russell Hantz infamy.  One of the houseguests will be Willie Hantz ..from Dayton Texas he is the brother of Russell.  Reality show gold apparently.

Bartenders . Cooks, and waitresses are often picked for the show...probably because in their profession they can leave a job for an entire summer.  Chev Joe Arvin is 41 from Schereville Indiana,.but he isnt the oldest as that role goes to  Jodi Rollins from Calipatria CA is a 42 year old server, JoJo Spatafora is a 26 year old Bartender, and speaking of not losing any time from work, Frank Eudy is 28 and unemployed from Naples FL.  He is the son of wrestling legend Sid VIcious. 

In the mix you always get the tattooed metal head and the smarty pants.  They will be represented by Rock Bass Player Jenn Arroyo, a 37 year old who played with Kittie, an all female group, and in the Peabody role, 21 year old engineering student from  Tulane, Ian Terry. 

We also have a nurse, Daniell Murphree who is from Tuscaloosa, and a spray tan company owner, Ashley Iocco, who is 26 and from West Hollywood. 

Ad reps and marketers are often represented, and that role is represented by Wil Heuser from Louisville, and House Flipper (is that a real job) Shane Meaney (if this guys name doesn't say villian I don't know what does) is 26 from Bennington Vermont.

So there you have it ...they 12 that will be joined by 4 who have played before.  Big Brother 14 started on July 7th as move in day.

How Hot is it ?

Its SO HOT outside that . . .
Squirrels are pouring Gatorade on their nuts
It was so hot today Lance Armstrong tested positive for Snapple.

The CDC Knows about whether or not there is a Zombie Apocalypse coming

Start panicking, America.

The CDC says there will be could be a Zombie Apocalypse someday, and they have prepared plans for it.  Now that there are canibals and flesh eating junkies in the news these days, the CDC is actually OFFICIALLY proclaiming that they know of no occurence that is waking the dead or no virus that causes those  Zombies to want to eat peoples brains.

Yes ..the CDC important to America and dare I say the WORLD's Security as the Homeland Security department.  

Said, Stephen Colbert, Folks, you know that I do not flinch at unpleasantness,” he began. “But even I have been willfully ignoring a terrifying trend dominating the news.”

"Could it be that the CDC changed their tune because now they’re zombies? It makes sense that zombies would be attracted to science. All they care about ... is braaains!”

American Idol Final Phillip Phillips wins with Home

 a GREAT  Finale to American Idol on Fox ...with Phillip Phillips keeping it close until the end, when he pulled it out with a song thats a hit right now. ROUND 1: SIMON FULLER'S CHOICE
Jessica Sanchez, "I Have Nothing"
Phillip Phillips, "Stand by Me"
Jessica wins because her song was stronger and she showed uncanny charisma would be the last time we saw that side of her for the night. 
Jessica Sanchez, "The Prayer"
Phillip Phillips, "Movin' Out" 
On vocal quality it goes to Jessica, but Phillip has his growl and his charisma shining through and the way he takes  asong and makes it his own serves him well here as it did all season. 

Jessica Sanchez, "Change Nothing":
Phillip Phillips, "Home":
If this were the only song of the night, Phillip wins hands down...if he does not win, I guarantee its a hit single anyway.

Juxtoposing the simplicity of Lana Del Ray with the Complexity of Laurie Anderson

A quote from Lana Del Ray reminds me how simple Rock and Roll, Country, and Folk can be.  At age 18, her uncle taught her how to play guitar, beginning with basic chords: "It was G, C, A, D minor, A minor and some diminished chord as well. Some trick, some shortcut," Del Rey recalled. "I realized I could probably write a million songs with those six chords, so I moved to New York and I took a couple of years to just write whatever I wanted."
YOU CAN write a million songs with those chords ...throw in an E chord and make it the history of modern music.

Now throw in the compexity of Laurie Anderson and her 1981 non hit O Superman which is being played as background music on the new HTC commercial on SNL.  It was too cool, interesting, and performance art to played on MTV .  Thank goodness for the USA network show from the 80's NIGHTFLIGHT.

Here is Laurie Anderson

Little Steven 1983

In 1983 Bruce Springsteen and Little Steven Van Zant of The E Street Band and the Sopranos were kicked out of Disneyland because of the way they were dressed.  Here was Steve's response  


                I was thrown out of Disneyland today. The psychic scars this caused date back to a seven-year old who faithfully watched Mickey strike up the band every afternoon and lusted after Annette until about 15 years later (I still need a shot of Skippy peanut butter now and then).

                I had heard about discrimination back in the Sixties, having to do with “Longhairs” not being allowed in. Although even then I somehow figured this rule – if it existed – would probably apply to long-haired guitar players and not, say, long-haired violin players. I think that double standard would also apply today because I found that the rule I couldn’t believe existed is in fact being strictly enforced. The fact is this visual discrimination, the concept of a dress code at all, is a serious flaw in our legal system and is nothing short of legalized prejudice.

                At Disneyland, enforcing this ridiculous law is also an attack on rock and music and all the people who believe in it. They’re telling me nobody rocks in the Magic Kingdom. Nobody expresses their individuality in the Magic Kingdom except maybe that guy in the rodent suit. It’s the ideal fairground for James Watt.

                As a country we made great strides in the Sixties, mostly in the area of civil rights for blacks, and that was great. But now we have an ever growing number of the population, of which I am a part, who express themselves visually; those whose appearances are an important form of self-expression.

                Every human being is born with a uniqueness which society eventually forced him to suppress. I believe that when young children are forced to conform in this way, the frustration creates serious problems later on. The lack of self-expression becomes self-destructive, often resulting in violence or drug use or excessive drinking or any number of outlets of which I am sure Walt Disney wouldn’t have approved.

                The idea of a dress code is a gaping loophole in the very civil rights laws everyone fought so long and hard to get passed. For example, if Disneyland didn’t want to admit black people, all they would have to say is that they don’t like the way they are dressed. Twenty years of humanitarian progress down the drain.

                Of course, the most blatant prejudice a dress code suggests is against the poorer segments of society who perhaps can’t afford to attire themselves in clothing of which the security guard approved (depending on his mood that day).

                Obviously dress codes don’t begin and end at Disneyland. They are an embarrassment to our society in whatever restaurant, club or public facility they exist. But I think any place billing itself as “The Happiest Place On Earth” is a good place to start.

                So I think it is time to boycott Disneyland until the vague and unfair dress code they enforce is abolished once and for all. The First Amendment to the Constitution is freedom of speech and expression. People who live their lives expressing themselves by the way they look, doing no harm to anyone, are entitled to the same rights that allow the Nazis and Ku Klux Klan members to run around protected by our tax dollars. Everyone should be entitled to the same protection under the law. Abolish legalized prejudice. Abolish all dress codes now.

                                                                Little Steven, 1983

                                                                Disciples of Soul

Top Ten Prince Songs for The Voice Medley After Super Bowl

With The Voice getting set to do a Prince Medley after the Super Bowl, with Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green as well as Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton, all of whom are on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine, I picked my favorite Prince songs, almost all of which are Prince and the Revolution songs, however a New Power Generation song or two sneaks in there as well, with the hope that these would be the ones chosen to sing.  Adam said on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon that Prince "never clears anything," and so they are honored and will do Prince proud on the medley.  Here are the Top Ten Prince Songs according to and the YoooHaaa Blog.

1 PURPLE RAIN - Better if you get it live
2-I WOULD DIE FOR YOU - Amazing on film and on record
3-KISS-everybody will dance without provocation
4-LETS GO CRAZY - catchiest song
5-DARLING NIKKI - on the weird side but a masterpiece
6-LITTLE RED CORVETTE - lyrically filled with easter eggs and double meanings
7-RASBERRY BERET - Most top 40 friendly Prince song ever.
8-WHEN DOVES CRY - This song could be remade in so many ways ..I keep waiting
9-1999 - Don't worry ...I won't hurt you
10-GETT OFF - Just as funky as it gets
11-HONORABLE MENTION...BAT DANCE    Nobody else but me liked this one I suppose...the samples from the movie were great.

Legalizing Marijuana - Seem Right For Now

"We want the world and we want it ...NOW !"  Jim Morrison

I have this feeling that there will be conversations like the ones I used to have with my grandparents about prohibition. Someday our grand kids will say, "you mean you could drink all of that you wanted, and smoke all of those you wanted, but if you wanted to smoke THAT it was illegal ?" "Yep...that was the law...and most people didn't understand the hypocrisy." If you legalize it, you unfortunately have quite a few new addicts overnight. But, I think you also, overnight, take all the power away from drug kingpins in other countries who are corrupt murderers. It's not a harmless drug, but most would agree more harm comes from legal alcohol. Seems the benefits of allowing personal choice in this matter.  outweigh the negatives.  I wonder if Pot will be legal, or even decriminalized in my home state ever.  Time will tell.  President Obama consistently says he does not think advocating legalization of cannabis is right at this time.
