It's "Empty Garden (Hey Hey Johnny)", from the 1982 album "Jump Up". Elton & Bernie's tribute to John Lennon.
I agree. This scene lacks the sense of perspective, far too many dark, wobbly quick-fire close up shots rather than panoramic. The first minute is like a car commercial, fair enough, but when the action starts its all over the place. More fast and furious than for your eyes only. It improves slightly in the quarry, but yes its a mess, there's nothing subtle about it. Compare the car chases in Goldfinger, Diamonds are Forever, Spy Who Loved Me, Goldeneye.
I've never seen the show as i have no interest in TV. But, Angus, what you should do now is arise from that leather sofa, walk away from the wall-mounted plasma screen, the industry and the luxuries it has provided. Privately donate the vast money you have earned to various charities and organisations that help all, not just a few, and to the people who badly need it. Be a positive, humble, non-judging, free-thinking individual and research the origins of what you think is truth. Peace.
Zappa's humour was a love of bawdy slapstick to the satirical and surreal. From Lenny Bruce, Monty Python to Saturday Night Live. He loved improvisation... and all based on observational, sociological comedy. Billy's humour is much the same, and in his early career he was pretty wild, surreal and controversial. He poked fun at human nature and social norms. Zappa did too. He may not have been a fan of the traditional stand up comedy guy, but a fan of Billy Connolly? Yeah, i can see it.
a heartbreaking tale of childhood. Even though im from England i can relate to the lyrics here. Jumping off roofs, climbing trees with scabs on knees, chasing fire engines to see who's house is on fire, pretending that holes in a car are caused by bullets and making up stories about people in the neighbourhood. But its the last verse where it gets a little surreal. A friend, bound in a wheelchair, dreaming of a place to fly away. Beautiful. I've cried at this song, how could anyone not.
nature is not black and white, its all shades of grey. Homosexuality exists in all animal groups, primates included. Imagine the world if everyone procreated! Some creatures can change gender, male seahorses carry their young, some women can grow facial hair, men have nipples. why? Some men are effeminate but straight, some women are very masculine. That same questions in gender apply in sexuality. It is not a choice.
The bible has strict instructions not to work on the sabbath, and that the woman of any couple staying there was indeed a virgin on marriage. Do the owners take heed of this too? You can't pick and choose with scriptures. Homosexuality is a part of nature, it exists in all animal groups and primates are no different. But this imposed morality from the law is another matter, they should be able to stick with their beliefs. As a gay man, i do exactly the same and i would happily stay elsewhere.
I can assure you it is genuine. It was part of a show on BBC Radio1 hosted by Mary Ann Hobbs. Bowie biographer, David Buckley refers to it in his book "strange fascination" pg 466. Other messages for DB came from the likes of Bono, Neil Tennant, Brett Anderson, Placebo and many others. I have it all on cassette somewhere and im happy to upload it if i find it. I saved this clip at the time to pass on to a friend who happens to be the biggest Scott Walker fan i know. She knows it aint bullshit.
PiL gig in Leeds. Record companies didnt give a toss if PiL wanted to reform, so he did a butter ad to finance it. Of course he's a tart, but its the celebs who will sell the most ludicrous things for no noble cause but they're own and take themselves far too seriously in the process that are more a joke. John sold a blob of saturated fat....i get to see PiL. Good for him.
hey man, that's just a lie, it's a lie she tells her friends.
'cause the real song, the real song where she won't even admit to herself.
the beatin' in her heart. It's a song lots of people know.
It's a painful song, a little sad truth
but life's full of sad songs, penny for a wish
But wishin' won't make you a soldier.
With a pretty kiss for a pretty face can't have its way
Y'know tramps like us, we were born to pay.
Pathetic! Randy is being his usual ironic, archaic, mischievous, humourous self and good for him too.....you fell for it Bill. What else is he expected to say about a presidential candidate's top 10 music?! He's basically saying that music tastes says absolutely nothing about being a good leader, a bad one or indeed an evil one. A pinhead is someone who thinks it does!! Bill, If you think you're better than him....you're wrong.
nothing obnoxious about it....its a brilliant score by John Williams from the same scene in Oliver Stone's "Nixon". The music is understated where it needs to be, and forceful where it befits. The score fits this heartbreaking speech like a glove and, although the words and sentiment are as strong without the music, i commend the uploader for providing an alternative presentation.
First time i heard the Alice Cooper track i wasn't convinced either, but it has grown on me. If it had been selected there is no doubt that the song would have been edited and re-arranged with a much improved cinematic production, utilizing the 'Bond' strings. It could have worked in my opinion. Imagine what Macca's home demo of "Live and Let Die" would have sounded like! Sometimes, its the production and arrangements that can make an average song into something else.
thanks for the comment, it took me a long time to put it together! Have a look at the new scott walker video i have put on :)
