Billy Joel – Los Angelenos (Live at Sparks, 1981)

with 42 comments

First time I’ve seen this live performance by Billy Joel. Touring the Los Angeles area on Google Street View made me think of this song. I think that Billy Joel perfectly captured the essence of Los Angeles in the early 1970s. As you know, Billy Joel lived there for two years, so the song is partly autobiographical.

My favorite line is:

Such hot sweet schoolgirls
So educated

Which is sandwiched between having sex, smoking “Mexican reefers” and getting exotic massages.

I think that Epstein isn’t the only man who was attracted to hot sweet schoolgirls. Count Billy Joel among that group!

Role queue coming to Overwatch!

with 19 comments

In less than a week, role queue is coming to Overwatch! That means this song, which has been viewed more than 59 million times, will no longer be relevant. Overwatch players will never again have to deal with no one on the team picking support. It sure took Blizzard long enough.

(And this alternate music video of the song has been viewed another 33.4 million times. And another 9+ million views for this composite of Tik Tok memes; watch at your own risk.)

Meat Loaf – Paradise By The Dashboard Light

They don’t make music like this anymore. One of the greatest duets ever.

A guy who looks like Meat Loaf would never make it big today.

It’s so old fashioned that he has to promise to marry the girl in order to have sex with her. That would never happen today.

Karla Devito has such an interesting look. She’s not the woman who recorded the vocals on the album. She’s lip-syncing to Ellen Foley who was a conventionally cute blonde.

Heat Miser says “green Christmas”

This guy must have been reading my blog! He has intervened and canceled out my previous forecast. He hates snow and doesn’t want any of the gentile boys and girls to have a white Christmas.

After a warmy and rainy Nor’easter passes through New York City early Friday, December 21, there will be no frigid cold and no snow, through Christmas.

The week between Christmas and New Year’s still holds the potential for a snowstorm.

Bohemian Hanukkah

New parody song this year, based on Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody.

I have to say, this is surprisingly good.

Queen – Killer Queen

Freddie Mercury looks very flamingly gay. But in 1970s, people were naive and didn’t know.

Riverdale: Archie and Veronica sing “Mad World,” but Betty takes over

Wow! This is what passes for TV aimed at teenagers these days!

Spoiler alert: it’s possible that by watching this, you might get a clue as to what will happen during the first eight episodes of season 2, if you haven’t watched yet.

* * *

I mentioned this show to my 12-year-old nephew at Thanksgiving, and he said yuck sounds boring, he heard some girls at his school talking about the show. So apparently middle-school-aged girls watch this show!

Harry Chapin – Corey’s Coming (extended live version)

Wow, I didn’t know this extended version of the song existed. This makes it clear that Corey isn’t a real person. I think she’s some sort of supernatural apparition. (The other alternative is that she’s a delusion shared by both John Joseph and the person telling the story who has gone crazy himself from listening to a crazy man’s stories.)

Perhaps she’s like a Houri? (Based on a Google search, I’m the first person in the history of the internet to make that connection.)
