For dystopia...
« on: August 24, 2007, 11:53:25 AM »

You'll never be the boy you always you wanted to be

You'll always be the only boy who wanted me the way that I am

There's no one in the universe as magical and wondrous as you

There's nothing any better and there's nothing I just wouldn't do

(I heard it on the radio the other day and this song always makes me laugh.  It has an over-the-top earnestness to it that is glorious.)

I think it was written by the same dude who wrote most of Meatloaf's big hits. Jim Steinman or something like that. I'd wiki it, but I really don't care that much.

[Please don't let anyone find out that I really do care. I care deeply. I love Bonnie Tyler and I love Meatloaf. Must keep it to myself.]

hehe, I just spent the last hour on youtube watching videos.

I'm so clueless, I had no idea about Jim Steinman.  Thanks!  Here's a funny clip of him and Bonnie Tyler rehearsing Total Eclipse of the Heart.

Bat out of Hell II was great!  It was so completely over the top.
Quote
The album polarized critics, some loving it:

    "If bombast had a bigger, louder brother, if overkill could graduate to Murder 1, if the Spinal Tap amps had a 12, if Springsteen and Wagner had a baby and beaten it they would all come close... [to Steinman's music]."

and some hating it:

    "...wallowing in excess so gratuitous as to make Michael Bolton, by comparison, seem a master of understatement... Mountains of banshee-like wailing guitars! Thunderous drums! Herniated vocals! Profoundly stupid lyrics! Gack. This isn't pandering to the lowest common denominator - it's lowering the lowest common denominator."

LMAO.  Awesome.

Objects in the rear view mirror may appear closer than they are video

I would do anything for love video


Weird, Jim Steinman also produced "This Corrosion" by The Sisters of Mercy.  That song totally takes me back to high school.

I was unaware of the Steinman/Sisters of Mercy connection. Makes perfect sense though.

I was front row for Sisters of Mercy on the Vision Thing tour at Kingsbury Hall, prolly '91ish. Danielle Dax opened. Cool show. It was about the time Andrew Eldritch really started looking a lot like Steve Dallas from Bloom County.

I may be a pencil-necked geek, but I don't think that necklace would fit.

WTF, it's in ITALIAN?


I hadn't thought about that movie in awhile, but what's not to love:

Lee Ving and Willem Dafoe kidnap Ellen Aim and Michael Pare and the chick at the end save her, with cameo's by at least a dozen 'Skinny Tie' bands of the era.

I had totally forgotten this song, which went on to become a minor hit still gets a little bit of radio play, was in it:

I almost posted this video again. I already had done a YouTube search before I saw your post. LOL

What happens in GolfHos is exactly like that plot device used in movies in which a line that someone says early in the movie is repeated by another person back to the original person at the end of the movie. We *goshdarn* rock! GolfHos High School football rules!!!

I loved this movie. Especially the fight scene with the sledgehammers.
Now I have to see if I can rent it.

Wasn't it sledgehammers, then pickaxes? There was a definite 'Star Trek' swapping of weapons, IIRC...
