I had no idea that The Pretenders were still around in the ’90s. When I was little I had a huge crush on Chrissy Hynde. But I thought they were already old when I was young like the way Tina Turner tricked people into thinking she was sexy by going on tour in her underwear when she was 70.
I am going to let the song speak for itself. And I am pretty happy that the devotion in the song has no bounds.
Let me come along
‘Cause even if you’re wrong
I’ll stand by you
Think of the friends you have and think about which ones would tell the cops they were with you the whole night when in reality they watched you sneak in the back door with a bloody sweater and duffel bag that seems to have something alive in it after you’d been gone for three hours with no explanation. Because that’s the line I put my friends on either side of. It happens more often that I’d like.
Melissa Etheridge is pretty raspy. But this song was pretty great to sing along to. Any time the song is super loud you can get away with singing it badly and nobody will care too much. Go ahead and try it. Wherever you are. Right this second. I would but unless something has gone really wrong I am either on a plane or in an important meeting right now and belting out ballads is frowned upon in those locations.
But don’t think I’m not thinking about it.
I’m not going to lie. I could. I could tell you that I put that old pic of Heidi Klum in the banner because today is the anniversary of when she married Seal (in 2005). But in reality I didn’t want to have to post a pic of the actual Seal because his messed up face scares me. I know it is not his fault but the poor guy looks like he bought a home Edward James Olmos kit. And honestly he had a hit song, married Heidi Klum (Heidi Klum Pics here and Heidi Klum Tongue Pics here) and even though they are divorced now they had the best Halloween costumes ever so whatever, guy.
And I bet if you were like me you thought there was ONE reason Seal had those scars but in fact there is a different one. And from the looks of it, Seal’s face is a hot topic. Look what Google says.
Jeez, Google. Have a heart. Stop showing me how horrible people are. Take those offensive ones out and just leave: “Why is seal’s face”. That’s what I would ask him if I ever met him. Hey, Seal, why is your face? Then he would hit me with a bag of money and tell me stories about dirty stuff he did to Heidi Klum. Well played, Seal. Well played.
Every Twerker in the world needs to give Wreckz N Effect a nickle per twerk. Since the whole movement seems to be based on that one…movement, they all owe a debt to the early 90s hit Rump Shaker. I can only assume that within the next few months there will be a new craze of women in bikinis playing the saxophone at the beach. Just working on a name for it. I suppose it would have to be a word that combines Bill Clinton, Clarence Clemons and Lisa Simpson. Those are the only three saxophone players I know.
Oh, and we should also note that we are talking about a song that introduced the idea of focusing one’s life by stating:
“All I wanna do is zooma zoom zoom zoom and a boom boom.” Which is all I have ever wanted to do ever since except I don’t know how to do either of those things. Oh, and they also have two kids using those white buckets for drums. Don’t get that. How expensive is a drum? Would they rather have a real drum? If not, what do they know that people with real drums are missing? This video is full of wonder….
Let me start out by saying that I believe that Van Halen is one of only two bands in the history of bands who replaced their lead singer and were just as popular after doing so. I am specifically not going to tell you who the other one is so you can talk about it in the comments. But let’s focus on the Sammy Hagar thing for now. First of all I think that he sucks. Second of all I hate this song. But the video caused quite a splash since it just named a bunch of things and claimed that they were happening “Right Now”. I never bothered to check on all of them but after rewatching the whole thing I am pretty sure that the person who invented the infographic got the idea from this video.
So, to recap. David Lee Roth > Sammy Hagar. Sammy Hagar is music’s Guy Fieri. Second, this song is terrible. And third, RIGHT NOW I just took off my pants so that when I said that it would be true.
Sooo…there you go. No pants.
