The Answer to the Last Lyric is...

Often times, I wonder about how other people come up with the things they do. PinTA and her quote of the day and such. Is there a pattern? Some rhyme or reason? I imagine others wonder a bit of the same. Today, I'll speak of the mystery lyric.

For the most part, some song will strike my fancy and I'll pull a snippit from it. Most of the time they are songs that are on my iPod, or at least my computer, but not in every case. Sometimes, I'll pull one out my tape case. Yup... I said tape case. You know, those big brown things that took up the entire back seat of the car in high school? The ones that scratched the cases up so bad that you had to pull the jacket out of it to really see what you had? Those...

I got tired of the usual fare on my ipod (pronounced ipod) and so I added a few from one of my CDs. That's where the last lyric came from. 16 Strokes.

I'm not what you'd call a big Billy Squier fan, but I have been around since the beginning. I was there for the Stroke, All Night Long, In the Dark, My Kinda Lover, Don't say you love me, She Goes Down, Love is a Four letter Word... are you sensing a pattern here?

Ok... it was the 80's, and we all know that sex, drugs, and rock and roll were the orders of the day. And Billy Squier was a Rock Star. That means he was a sex symbol. The long hair... the leather vest... the "I'm a rocker" stare...

Photobucket
See what I mean?

Now... you know just from that picture that everything Billy does just drips six appeal. It's all for you ladies, and you want him... BADLY! Admit it...

So when I posted last week's lyric from Rock Me Tonight, one of my favs... Well... I've just got to post the video to go along with it. I have to warn you ladies though... you'll never be able to resist Billy after watching this. The sexy clothes... the way he dances suggestively... and when he crawls toward the camera... well... you're doomed.


Now if that just doesn't scream sex appeal... what does?

****************************

Today's mystery lyric: (Remember the rules folks, no online searching of the lyrics, if you don't know it, you don't have the answer!)

The earth starts to rumble
World powers fall
Awarring for the heavens,
A peaceful man stands tall
Tall...

Oh yeah, that sexy drawstring on his pants, the one sleeved shirt, and the half arm snap. He is all man.

That lyric is some sort of heavy metal thing I think but I don't follow that kind of music so I couldn't tell you who.

And how about that arm swinging snap-skip dance? They ought to invent a word more sexy than sexy just for this video...

More sexy than sexy?... Hmmmmm... I'll call it Knight! ;)

Ok I have to admit, I liked that song? I had to come comment after less than a min! Blah! How do you spell the "Throw up" sound!!? EEEeeeeW!! He reminds me of Richard Simmons! Again Throw up sound, or Icon needed! :@ How's that? I remember seeing his "tape" in friends cars, I never had one. Nope I like my men, with torn shirts AFTER they come in from ranchin, fixing fence, chasing a mean ol heifer through the brush. I would use that shirt to clean the toilet! Skipping? There is no Skipping in Man hood! No guy I have EVER dated danced like that either! Not even Line dancing! Nope I am so completley happy with the Cowboy Way! No, "Never Never Land Boys for me!! Thanks LL for the hug and pat on the Cinch wearing behind, I am going to place on my Cowboy right now! hahahaha!

I'm officially labeling you.

OLD...
...or ODD

Take you pick love. Because I have yet to recognize a single lyric since I've been reading you. So when you posted the video I thought, "Surely hearing it will ring a bell!"

NOT!!

So either you are older than my mother, hus making this music something I could never have possibly heard...

OR...

You're just ODD.

Either way... it's okay, I still like you :D

Just like the Pied Piper
Led rats through the streets

Swaying to the Symphony
Of Destruction

fermi - I expected more out of you. I thought you'd at least be a flannel gal! ;)

TW - Nice try... I know you're lusting after Billy after watching that. When he ripped his shirt off? You probably flipped your thongs off... :ewink: And thanks for the ego massage... LL: Making women thankful for their husbands since 2006.

RLFTP - Soooooo... you've been lurking around have you? Welcome to The End of the World my dear. As for the label... well... I'm slightly older than your 28... I'm erm... 29. Yeah. 29. :P

And if you don't know the lyrics, you're listening to the wrong stuff!

Nobody believes you when you say you're 29.

Flannel works in the winter. I also have some sheets that are made of bamboo (seriously), but they look and feel just like very soft cotton.

Shush! She might...

Dear God, that was just as awful as I remembered it being. Some people just shouldn't dance.

I agree with the Offended Blogger and also request an Adam Ant follow-up!

29? Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha...oh crap, I can't breathe, I'm laughing so hard.

Ooh, Fermi, bamboo sheets? Nice! I have some fabulous bamboo yarn.

Satin sheets are worthless, they slide off each other and then you slide off the bed, which completely sucks when you're trying to sleep.

I am not even dignifying that with a response!!

OK, I am. You are lucky that gas prices are still too high for me to fill up my monster truck and head north with my steel toed boots on... :D

Lord,
I don't usually have sex with fellas who can fit into my blue jeans, I was just really drunk and lonely.Now, Billy has my old keds on, and he keeps ripping up my flashdance T's. He is using all my hair products and make up too. Please, get him out of my rad 80's bedroom. Soon I will have nothing left.

If I watch this more than 10 times, will the brain damage be permanent?

I can't stop viewing it. Richard Simmons on steroids in Olivia Newton John's Let's Get Physical clothes.

It can't get any hotter!
