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...

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

How High's the Water Mama?

Thanks for your concerns, but alas... I'm still alive, just been busy. Sorry if that wrecks any pools that you've participated in, but...

Yes... the last 3 weeks have been spent pokin' cows, and unfortunately, that's not a euphemism for anything else. No... it merely means that I've spent my time gathering and sorting up cattle. We finally got finished yesterday. It's been a long siege, but today... I took the day off.

So what was I greeted with when I arose? Wind. Light. And... snow. Yes, snow. There was about 2 or 3 inches when I got up and its been snowing all day. Steady. Small flakes, but even small flakes accumulate.

Tomorrow's forecast? Snow all night and most of tomorrow too. Damn... this is the best accumulation of snow that we've had all year! I just wisht it wouldn't have come in October.

The answer to the question posed in the title is... 13" and rising.


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!)

Moonlight in the city brings the magic to your eyes
Freezin' a moment - leave me paralyzed
Breathe an emotion - set it dancin' in my ear
Bring on the rhythm when I hold you near
