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.)

The massive double standard of rap lyrics

Everyone (or rather everyone who’s an SJW) is hating on some white baseball player who tweeted quotes from rap lyrics years ago when he was some prole kid in high school.

But there’s absolutely no hate at all for the actual rap musicians propagating their disgusting songs in the first place.

The Buggles – Video Killed The Radio Star (Live 2004)

This is maybe the best concert video I’ve ever seen. One of the most iconic one-hit wonders, The Buggles, play their first live concert 25 years after recording the song whose music video became the first video ever played on MTV.

I like this live rendition better than the original studio recording. The lead singer is more mellow, and his voice is better without the tacky “futuristic” sound effects.

This was at an event sponsored by Prince Charles’ charity, which is why you see Prince Charles in the first row.
