So Badd It's Good

Thanks to an old friend for shining a light on this gem.  Oh how it sparkles.

Once Again, It's Not So Much The Song

It's the fact that I always cry a little when he says "Ladies and Gentlement, Mr. Elton John!"

If Wayne & Garth Had a Love Child It Would Be Me

Sometimes it's not so much the song as how I respond to it.  You definitely don't want to be in the car with me when this comes on.

We Got Off Easy!

But Sebastian Bach's house got totally trashed by Hurricane Irene.  And even I'm not mean enough to make a joke about the first line of this song.  Don't get me wrong.  I'm mean.  I'm just not that mean.

Don't Pretend You Don't Love This Song

Dear Dan,

It's not the honesty that's too much.  It's the whole damn song.

Two of the Finest

One of the reasons that I have such an uncanny ability to recognize truly embarrassing songs is that I have a great appreciation for the finest.

Hard to believe that two of the greatest songwriters of our time died on the same day.

Rest in Peace Jerry Leiber and Nick Ashford.  You will be missed.

A Moment of Silence

I heard on the radio this morning that Jani Lane died.

I didn't think I would feel quite so sad about it but I do.

Click here.  I'm having a hard time embedding.  I'll try to edit it later.

The Definitive Version

I had a friend named Mandy who loved Barry Manilow. She went to see him in concert and he pulled her up on the stage and sang with her. I was jealous.

The Best Opening Line in the History of Music

And here's a special bonus track for you today. I accidentally ended up at a "School of Rock" type of show a while back and the kids were amazing. Apparently, it was the punk class's recital day. When they were leaving I overheard a kid who couldn't have been more than seven saying to his Mom, "Now I'm going to have Cherry Bomb stuck in my head!"

You can thank me later for the Korean subtitles.

Please Welcome Our Guest DJ

Apparently, my friends suffer from the same affliction that I do.

Thanks Mary. The Captain's solo is really quite outstanding.

The Ultimate Power Ballad

There's a legendary story in Yonkers about Ace Frehley getting his ass kicked up and down the parking lot at the Candlight on Central Avenue. Apparently, he was waxing poetic about his days in the limelight and a somewhat disgruntled customer turned around and told him "I don't give a fuck who you used to be."

Apparently, that led to the ass kicking.

Oye! Sylvia!

As if the original wasn't embarrassing enough. Leave it JBJ to make it even worse.

Oh, and by the way, I would like to thank my beloved friends (you know who you are) for getting this one stuck in my head. This may be worse than the Delta Dawn incident of 2001.

K7--Come Baby Come

This is the quintessential teenaged boy song. It's juvenile. It's vaguely dirty. And it cracks me up all the time. Somewhere out there some poor woman is still bragging that she was one of the bikini girls.

And I love it. Put it on in the car. Crank it up loud. And drive too fast.

Harper Valley PTA

As far as I am concerned this is the definitive version of this song. Dolly Parton be damned, Jeannie C. Riley totally rocks the bouffant. And I totally dig the purple plaid jacket.
