Friday Nineties – Bonnie Raitt – Something to Talk About

I have something to talk about.  Why does Bonnie Raitt always look old?  She looked old when this song came out and that was a long time ago so she must pretty much be the Crypt Keeper now.  I was going to look up when she was born but I decided it would be cheating.  Instead, I made a fun quiz for you all to try to take.  Just a True/False thing.  Video and Lyrics after the jump, btw.

Bonnie Raitt History Quiz

(Choose True or False)

  • Bonnie was a protester on Wall Street at the beginning.
  • Bonnie played on stage with Eric Clapton.
  • Bonnie played on stage with Michael Jackson.
  • Bonnie played on stage with Ludwig Van Beethoven.
  • Bonnie was at the original Tea Party.
  • Bonnie looks like she should be on Mount Rushmore.
  • Bonnie helped sculpt Mount Rushmore.
  • Bonnie watched Mount Rushmore being formed by the Earth’s crust.

Submit your scores and find some picture of Bonnie Raitt for me to see where her face isn’t all crinkled up like a balloon that had paint on it that you let deflate.  You know how it gets all crackly?  Crackly balloon face?  It’s a real thing.  Screw you people.

Bonnie Raitt – Something to Talk About

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

People are talkin’, talkin’ about people
I hear them whisper, you won’t believe it
(Ah ha)
They think we’re lovers kept under covers
(Ooh hoo)
I just ignore it, they keep sayin’

Laugh just a little too loud
(A little too loud)
Stand just a little too close
(Too close)
Stare just a little too long
Maybe they’re seein’, somethin’ we don’t darlin’

Let’s give ’em somethin’ to talk about
(Somethin’ to talk about)
Let’s give ’em somethin’ to talk about
(Somethin’ to talk about)
I want a little somethin’ to talk about
I want your love
(Love love love love)

Well I feel so foolish, I’ve never noticed that
(Ah ha)
Baby you’re actin’ so nervous like you’re fallin’
(Ah ha)
It took a rumor to make me wonder
(Ooh hoo)
Now I’m convinced that they’re goin’ under
[From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/b/bonnie-raitt-lyrics/something-to-talk-about-lyrics.html]

An I think ’bout you everyday
(Everyday)
Dreamin’ ’bout you every night
(Every night)
Hopin’ that you feel the same way
Now that we know it, let’s really show it baby
(Darlin’)

When you come there’ll be somethin’ to talk about
(Somethin’ to talk about)
A little mystery to figure out
(Somethin’ to talk about)
I want you somethin’ to talk about
I want your love
(Love love love love)

Give ’em something to talk about, babe
I got some mystery, Why don’t you just figure out?
Let’s give them somethin’ to talk about
How about love?
(Love love love love)

Ooh hoo let’s give ’em somethin’
(Somethin’ to talk about)
Hey a mystery won’t hurt
(Somethin’ to talk about)
There is somethin’ to talk about
How about love? Alright
(Love love love love)

(Somethin’ to talk about)
(Somethin’ to talk about)
(Love love love love)

    Bonnie was a protester on Wall Street at the beginning: True (she didn’t think New Amsterdam should have walls at all, but should live in peace and love with the Indians from Midtown).
    Bonnie played on stage with Eric Clapton: True
    Bonnie played on stage with Michael Jackson: False because I can’t handle the mental image
    Bonnie played on stage with Ludwig Van Beethoven: False. Beethoven was the conductor and stayed in the pit.
    Bonnie was at the original Tea Party: False
    Bonnie looks like she should be on Mount Rushmore: True.
    Bonnie helped sculpt Mount Rushmore: True.
    Bonnie watched Mount Rushmore being formed by the Earth’s crust: False. Mount Rushmore was formed from the crust in Acadia’s shorts. These trick questions are getting old.

    Her site has some photos that have a Playboy Playmate-leve of airbrushing applied to them, and WP has an old black and white photo of her that may have been taken by Ansel Adams.

    And you still haven’t done “Original Sin” 😛
