The Song Stuck In My Head: “TALK TO ME” by KISS (1980)

“…People Tell Me That You Run Around

And That You’re No Good

You Got A Bad Reputation

I Don’t Care What All The People Say

You Know They Talk Too Much

It’s A Fascination

All I Wanna Do Is Talk To You

And Maybe Go Out

And Form Some Kind Of Relation…”

TALK TO MEIs Off Of The KISS AlbumUNMASKEDWhich Was Released In 1980 !!!

“…So TALK TO ME

TALK TO ME

All I Want Is A Little Conversation

TALK TO ME

TALK TO ME

All I Want Is A Little Conversation. …”

The 1980 Single Album ForTALK TO MEBy KISS !!!

… … … …

… …

In 1980…

(*An Amazing Year, By The Way*)

…The Hard-Rock Band…

KISS

…Released Their Eighth Studio Album…

UNMASKED

…Which Contained The Song…

TALK TO ME

:D

The Album Itself…

…Sadly…

…Was Considered A Bomb, For The Most Part…

…By The Standards The Band Had Set For Itself.

And I’ll Say It Right Now…

…NO…

TALK TO ME

…Is NOT A Fantastically Great Song For The Ages…

…Nor Anything Remotely Like That.

It Is…

…However…

…EXCEPTIONALLY CATCHY…

…Nearing The Term INFECTIOUS.

It’s Fun.

It’s Quirky.

It’s More POP ROCK Than HARD ROCK…

…Which Is Surely A Departure For The Band.

They’ve Dabbled In Pop’ish Tunes Before…

…But This One Is VERY Pop’ish.

Pop’ish Pop’ish, Ya Know?!

Sure You Do!!

;)

Regardless Of All This…

TALK TO ME

…Is A Song I DO Enjoy…

…And It’s Totally Great For Walking Purposes.

It Has A Good Beat AND Rhythm…

…And I Have A Soft-Spot For The Lyrics.

:)

Of Whether You Should Spend Time AND Money…

…This Is One Where I’d Say…

…The Whole Album…

UNMASKED

???

Eh, If You Wanna.

:|

This Particular Song…

TALK TO ME

???

Sure, Why Not.

:D

Enjoy The Rest Of Your Day, My Peeps.

I Think I Feel A Brisk Walk Creeping Up My Spine As We Speak.

And If It’s Not A Brisk Walk…

…I Sincerely Don’t Wanna Know What It Is…

…’Cause If It’s A Spider…

…I’M GONNA FREAK THE “F” OUT!!!

;)

About these ads

No Sleep For The Wicked… …Or Was That Brooklyn?!

So Yeah, It’s Around 12:30AM …

…And I’m Still Up-&-About.

I Simply Can’t Get To Sleep.

I’m Exhausted.

It’s Been A Rather Long Day.

I Was Seen By My Doctor…

…And He Did Some Medication Shuffling.

More Of This.

Less Of This.

Etc Etc Etc

I’m Hoping It’ll Start Helping VERY SOON.

Like Very VERY Soon.

ANYWAY, My Peeps…

…It’s Now FRIDAY…

…So…

…I’m Going To Make Another Attempt At Sacking-Out, Now.

Wish Me Luck, My Peeps.

:D

And NO…

…Do NOT Wish Me Bad Luck.

I Have A Truck-Load Full As It Is.

“The Best” -Vs- “My Favorite”: Episode III: Super Heroes And Super Sequels

Alright, Kiddies…

…Let Us Play This Little Game Again.

Y’all Seemed To Enjoy These…

…So Why Not Go For Another, Eh!?

Why Not, Indeed.

;)

So…

…Today I Wanna Talk…

“SUPER HEROES”

…With Y’all.

I’m Going To Do The BIG TWO (2) For Our Third Episode.

Namely…

BATMAN

&

SUPERMAN

:D

Shall We Officially Begin?!

WE SHALL!!

:)

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

I’m Going To Begin With “BATMAN” Simply Because This Is The One I Expect To Cause The Most Commotion.

First Thing I Need To Say, Is…

…NO.

NO, I Have NOT Seen…

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

(2012)

…Yet.

I Don’t Tend To Hit The Cinema Anymore…

…So It’s The One “BATMAN” Flick That Has Slipped Through My Proverbial Cracks.

SO…

…This Edition Of…

“THE BEST” -Vs- “MY FAVORITE”

…Must Be Put Into Proper Context.

Based On Those I’ve Seen, I’m Going To Say “THE BEST” Would (Likely) Be Either…

BATMAN

(1989)

…Or…

THE DARK KNIGHT

(2008)

…Right?!

RIGHT!!

They’re Both Exceptional Flicks, Fo SHO, And I Do Enjoy Them Both…

…BUT…

…Are Either Of Those Flicks…

“MY FAVORITE”

??? ??? ???

??? ???

???

Nope.

So What Is…

“MY FAVORITE”

???????

BATMAN RETURNS

(1992)

:D

For My Money…

BATMAN RETURNS

…Was…

…By FAR FAR FAR…

“MY FAVORITE”

Period.

To ME…

…It Was Honestly The Darkest Chapter In The Annals Of “BATMAN” History.

MICHELLE PFEIFFER

…As…

“CATWOMAN”

…Was Exceptional!

Especially The Patton-Leather Outfit.

She Was Just So Damned Sexy AND So Damned Viscous!

I LOVED IT.

As For…

DANNY DeVITO

…As…

“THE PENGUIN”

…He Was Literally So Revolting It Was Brilliant.

I Don’t Think Anyone Could Have Played That Part Like He Did.

Period.

AND…

…To Top It All Off…

…You’ve Got MY Favorite “BATMAN” Of The Bunch…

MICHAEL KEATON

!!! !!! !!!

Yes, My Peeps…

I AM A CHILD OF THE ’80s AND ’90s…

…So It’s Only Proper My Loyalties Lay There.

I Saw The 1989 Version Of “BATMAN” On Opening Weekend In 1989…

…And It Was The Same For “BATMAN RETURNS” In 1992.

I Never Thought They’d Be Able To Top The 1989 Installment…

…And Then Came 1992.

I Was Simply Blown Away.

It’s A Feeling I Haven’t Felt Since, In Regard To “SUPERHERO” Flicks.

With “BATMAN RETURNS” I Got Everything I Wanted From The Series.

Period Period.

I Know A Lot Of People STRONGLY Disliked It…

…But There Are A Few Of Us Whom Never Could Get Enough Of It!!!

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

Alright, Kids…

…Moving On Moving On…

…To…

SUPERMAN

!!! !!! !!!

With The Selection Of Flicks In The “SUPERMAN” Saga…

…This One Is An EASY No-Brainer.

Which One Would (Likely) Be Considered The Best?!

Well…

…For Most Folks…

…I’d Venture To Say…

SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE

(1978)

…Would Be Considered “THE BEST” Of “THE BEST” Of “THE BUNCH”…

…Fo SHO.

BUT BUT BUT…

…My Peeps…

…Does…

SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE

…Rank As…

“MY FAVORITE”

??? ???

Nope.

Sorry.

I’m A Firm Believer That…

SUPERMAN II

(1980)

…Is Superior.

At Least, It Is For Me.

SUPERMAN II

…Gave Me EVERYTHING I Sincerely Wanted From The Whole Franchise.

To Me…

SUPERMAN II

…Is…

“MY FAVORITE”

…”SUPERHERO” Flick Of ALL-TIME!!!

I Even Went So Far As To Get The Theatrical Cut Of The Flick On The DVD…

…Then Picked-Up The “RICHARD DONNER CUT” On The Blu-Ray.

SUPERMAN II

…Spawned A Couple Halloween’s Worth Of…

“BRADLEY Is SUPERMAN This Year… …Again.”

;)

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

SOOOOOO…

…MY PEEPS…

WHICH “SUPERHERO” FLICKS Are YOUR FAVORITES?!?!?

I’d LOVE To Know.

I’m Very VERY Curious.

Not Everyone Has The Same Opinion…

…And I’d Love To Know Yours!

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

“THE BEST” -Vs- “MY FAVORITE”: Pilot Episode

Alright, My Peeps…

…This Is A Subject I’ve Touched On Many Times In My Daily Rambles.

Some People Sincerely Do Not Understand The Concept Of…

THE BEST

-Vs-

MY FAVORITE

…Since They Don’t Understand How Someone’s Favorite Something Isn’t Also The Best Of Whatever It May Be.

In This Series…

…I’ll Be Discussing Different Films…

…Songs…

…Albums…

…Books…

…Whatever I Can Think Of…

…To Showcase The Point That…

THE BEST

…Doesn’t Have To Be…

MY FAVORITE

.Period.

In Today’s Episode…

…I’ll Be Taking On TWO (2) Exceptionally Popular Film Franchises…

INDIANA JONES

&

STAR WARS

:D

Shall We Begin?!

LETS!!!

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

*** *** ***

***

First-Up…

INDIANA JONES

:)

I’m Beginning Here As This One Is The Hardest To Sell Others On.

Now…

…Which “INDIANA JONES” Film Is Most Widely Accepted AND Agreed Upon As Being…

THE BEST

???

Well…

…That’s A Simple One.

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

…Is By FAR Considered To Be…

THE BEST

…Of The Entire “INDIANA JONES” Spectrum.

.Period.

Do I Have A Problem With That?

Nope.

WHY?

Because I Accept The Fact That…

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

…Is…

THE BEST

…For That Series Of Films.

HOWEVER…

…Is It…

MY FAVORITE

???

???

Honestly…

…NOPE.

So What Is?!

Well…

INDIANA JONES And THE TEMPLE Of DOOM

…Has Always Been…

…And Will Always Be…

MY FAVORITE

.Period.

To ME…

…It’s The Darkest Chapter In The “INDIANA JONES” Saga…

…And It’s Honestly The Most FUN Flick Of The Bunch.

I Remember Seeing It As A Child And Becoming An Instant Convert.

I Loved…

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

…But I Loved Loved LOVED…

INDIANA JONES And THE TEMPLE Of DOOM

…Even More So.

Sue Me.

I Like What I Like…

…And I Love What I Love.

;)

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

*** *** ***

***

Next Up…

STAR WARS

:D

This Is Another That’s Been A Hard Sell On Other Folks.

When It Comes To The “STAR WARS” Universe…

…People Always Seem Torn.

There’s The School That Says…

STAR WARS: Episode IV: A NEW HOPE

…Is The Best.

And Then There Are Those Whom Say…

STAR WARS: Episode V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

…Is The Best.

I Tend To Agree With The Latter.

I’m Of A Mind That Says…

STAR WARS: Episode V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

…Is Honestly…

THE BEST

…From THAT Saga Of Motion Pictures.

Nothing Wrong With That.

BUT…

…Is…

STAR WARS: Episode V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK

MY FAVORITE

???

???

Again…

…NOPE.

What Is?!

STAR WARS: Episode VI: RETURN Of THE JEDI

…That’s What!!!

:D

Again…

…To ME…

STAR WARS: Episode VI: RETURN Of THE JEDI

…Falls Into That Realm Of…

…Always Has Been…

…Always Will Be…

MY FAVORITE

.Period.

It’s The First Film I Honestly Remember Seeing In The Theater…

(Though "E.T." Was Actually The First Film I Saw In The Theater, I Just Don't Remember That Viewing Since I Was Only 2-Years-Old hehehe)

…And I Was Totally Blown Away!

At 3-Years-Old…

…I’d Never Seen Anything Like It.

And THAT MEMORY Has Stuck With Me MY ENTIRE LIFE.

It Became My Favorite In 1983…

…And It’s Remained My Favorite To This Day.

When I Need Something FUN And UPLIFTING…

…It’s Hard For Me To Go Wrong With…

STAR WARS: Episode VI: RETURN Of THE JEDI

I Get A Flood Of Old Memories Floating To The Surface Each AND Every Time I See It.

I Get Them Thar Goose-Pimples When I Watch It.

The Moment I Hear The Words…

IT’S A TRAP!

…I Nearly Keel Over With Grand Excitement!

STAR WARS: Episode VI: RETURN Of THE JEDI

…Is The Most FUN Flick Of Them All!

It Makes Me Feel Like A Kid Again…

…And Those Memories…

…To ME…

…Are ABSOLUTELY…

…POSITIVELY…

…WITHOUT A DOUBT…

…PRICELESS.

.Period.

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

*** *** ***

***

Some Things Stick With Us Forever…

…And Ever…

…And Ever And Ever And Ever.

Y’all Know That.

You’re Human.

You Understand The Power Of The Mind.

You Know How It Works Well Enough To Know How That Goes.

Your “FAVORITE” Anything Does NOT Always Jive With What Everyone Else Considers “THE BEST” Or “THE WORST” Or “THE MOST FUN” Or “THE LEAST FUN”…

…Etc Etc Etc.

We’re All Our Own People.

We Have The Power To BOTH Agree AND Disagree.

That’s Part Of The Human Experience.

That’s Part Of Life.

Wouldn’t Y’all Tend To Agree?!

GREAT!!

I KNEW YOU WOULD!!!

;)

:D

Songs That Make Me Smile: “WATCHING THE WHEELS” by JOHN LENNON (1980)

People Say I’m Crazy…

…Doing What I’m Doing…

…Well They Give Me All Kinds Of Warnings…

…To Save Me From Ruin…

…When I Say That I’m Okay…

…Well They Look At Me Kind Of Strange…

…Surely You’re Not Happy Now…

…You No Longer Play The Game…

<<<(((*)))>>>

WATCHING THE WHEELSIs Off Of The 1980 AlbumDOUBLE FANTASYBy JOHN LENNON And YOKO ONO !!!

<<<(((*)))>>>

People Say I’m Lazy…

…Dreaming My Life Away…

…Well They Give Me All Kinds Of Advice…

…Designed To Enlighten Me…

…Well I Tell Them That I’m Doing Fine…

…Watching Shadows On The Wall…

…Don’t You Miss The Big-Time, Boy…

…You’re No Longer On The Ball…

…No Longer Riding On The Merry-Go-Round…

JOHN LENNON And YOKO ONO In 1980 !!!

<<<<<<<(((*)))>>>>>>>

<<<<<(((*)))>>>>>

<<<(((*)))>>>

<(((*)))>

I Went To Bed Around 1AM With This Song On My Mind.

You See…

…I Was Listening To My…

JOHN LENNON

…Greatest Hits Album Before Retiring For The Night…

…And This Song…

WATCHING THE WHEELS

…Got Stuck In My Head.

Now, I Know…

…This Isn’t A “THE SONG STUCK IN MY HEAD” Edition.

It Could Be…

…As The Song Is Very Much Stuck In There Right Now…

…But That’s Not What I’m Talking About.

I’m Talking About Being In A Good Mood BECAUSE Of Said Stuck Song.

WATCHING THE WHEELS

…Is One Of My All-Time Faves…

…And Exceptionally Worthy Of A Mentioning Here.

Any Song That Has The Power To Lift My Spirits…

…And Do So Throughout The Night And Into The Morning…

…I Figure It Must Be Doing Something Right.

The Album…

DOUBLE FANTASY

…Is One Of The Best Albums From The Early 1980s.

Period.

I’ve Owned A Copy Since I Was A Teenager.

My Father Owned A Copy Long Before That.

It’s An Album I Grew-Up-With In The House…

…And I’ve Enjoyed It The Bulk Of My Life.

While I Do Love Love LOVE The Album…

…There Are A Couple Songs That Stand-Out Above And Beyond The Others.

WATCHING THE WHEELS

…Is One Of Those Songs.

These Days…

…It’s Basically The Story Of My Existence.

Some Might Think That To Be A Bad Thing.

And It May Be, I Dunno.

But, That Doesn’t Change My Love For The Song.

Different Songs Speak To Different People In Different Ways.

That’s Just Life.

The Song…

WATCHING THE WHEELS

…To ME…

…Is Very VERY Uplifting.

It Puts A Big Smile On My Face EACH And EVERY TIME I Hear It.

That’s An Exceptionally Wonderful Result.

I Don’t Really Smile Much.

I’m A Professional At Being Stone-Faced…

…At Being Emotionless…

…At Being Rather Cold.

BUT BUT BUT…

…Sometimes…

…One Just Has To Give-In To The Music…

…And Let It Work Its Magic.

I May Struggle At Giving-In To Anyone OR Anything…

…But, My Music Is Generally The Best Bet If Giving-In Is A Requirement.

WATCHING THE WHEELS

…Is A Song That’s A PLEASURE Giving-In To…

…And It Shall (likely) Continue Doing So.

What More Is There To Say, Kiddies?!

EXACTLY!!

Not Much At All.

So I’ll Shut-Up, Now.

Y’all Take Care…

…Be Good…

…See Me Soon…

…And…

…Talk To Me Sooner.

Enjoy The Day, My Peeps.

Enjoy It, Fo SHO!!!

:D

What’s My GUILTIEST Guilty Movie Pleasure?!?!?

FLASH GORDON

(1980)

:D

:D

Based On The Classic Comic Strip By…

ALEX RAYMOND

…And Directed By…

MIKE HODGES

FLASH GORDON

…Stars…

SAM J. JONES

TIMOTHY DALTON

BRIAN BLESSED

TOPOL

MELODY ANDERSON

…And…

MAX VON SYDOW

!!! !!!! !!!

*** **** ***

The Basic Plot Outline Is Best Described As Such, Via IMDB:

In this update of the 1930s comic strip, Flash Gordon is a football hero who is skyjacked aboard Dr. Hans Zarkov’s rocketship along with beautiful Dale Arden. The threesome are drawn into the influence of the planet Mongo, controlled by Ming the Merciless. Ming has been testing the Earth with unnatural disasters, and deeming it a threat to his rule, he plans to destroy it. He also intends to take Dale as his concubine. Flash must avoid the amorous attentions of Ming’s daughter and unite the warring kingdoms of Mongo to rescue Dale and save our world.

*** **** ***

Now…

…I Don’t Know About The Rest Of Y’all…

…But I’ve Always Found…

FLASH GORDON

…To Be An Absolute BLAST!

It’s A “B-MOVIE” On A VERY Grand Scale!

Released In 1980…

FLASH GORDON

…Has Become A TRUE Cult-Classic.

I Can Name A Handful Of Folks Who Truly Do Love This Flick…

…Though…

…I Admit…

…I Can Name A Helluva Lot More Folks Who Truly Despise It.

But Hey…

…What’Ya’Gonna’Do…

…Ya Know?!?

;)

If There’s Anything I Can Say About It…

…It’s That I’ve Never Shied Away From Professing My Love For It.

FLASH GORDON

…Was…

…Is…

…Always Will Be…

…A Personal FAVE-FAVE Of ALL-TIME…

…And There’s Simply No Getting Around That.

I Grew-Up Watching It.

My First Copy Was One I’d Taped Off Of TV…

…And I Wore That Bastard Out!

But…

…I’ve Had A Copy…

…In One Form Or Another…

…Throughout The Bulk Of My Life.

:D

While I’m Not Sure If It’s The Cheesiest Flick Of All-Time…

…It’s Certainly In The Top 10!

So…

…It’s Only Par For The Course That I Would Have A Special Bond With It.

(teehehehe)

Agreed?!?

AGREED!!!

;)

As One Friend Of Mine Has Said Many Times To Me…

"It's CRAP-TASTIC, DUDE!"

:)

Now Who Could Argue With THAT?!?

Exactly My Point.

;)

Oh…

…And Just So You’re ALL Aware…

…The Name Of My Fantasy Baseball Team…

…Yeah…

…It’s…

FLASH GORDON EXPRESS

!!! !!!! !!!

So…

FLASH GORDON

…May Not Be An Academy Award Winner…

…And…

…It May Be One Of The Cheesiest Flicks Of ALL-TIME…

…But…

…It Remains Part Of My Life…

…And It’s (likely) The Guiltiest Pleasure I Harbor.

I. LOVE. FLASH. GORDON.

PERIOD.

And No Amount Of Dissing On The Parts Of Others Has Ever Been Able To Change That.

LOVE IT.

HATE IT.

WHATEVER.

IT’S STILL A FAVORITE!

In Fact…

…I Think I’m Gonna Watch It Again NOW!!!

:D

Hope Y’all Are Enjoying Your Weekend, Thus Far.

You Know Me, My Peeps…

…I’m Pluggin’ Along As Best As I Can.

I Haven’t Been In A Very Good Mood, That’s For Sure.

BUT BUT BUT…

…I Have The Sneaking Suspicion That…

FLASH GORDON

…Is Going To Save MY MOOD While He’s Saving THE EARTH!!!

:D

“Oh, I Didn’t Wanna Do It But I Got Too Lonely… Mmm, I Had To Call You Up In The Middle Of The Night…” –BILLY JOEL (“Sometimes A Fantasy” (1980))

…I Know It’s Awful Hard To Try To Make Love Long Distance…

…But I Really Needed Stimulation…

…Though It Was Only My Imagination…

*** ***

…It’s Just A Fantasy…

…It’s Not The Real Thing…

…It’s Just A Fantasy…

…It’s Not The Real Thing…

…But…

…SOMETIMES A FANTASY…

…Is All You Need…

*** ***

…When Am I Gonna Take Control…

…Get A Hold Of My Emotions…

…Why Does It Only Seem To Hit Me In The Middle Of The Night…

…You Told Me There’s A Number I Can Always Dial For Assistance…

…I Don’t Wanna Deal With Outside Action…

…Only You Can Give Me Satisfaction…

*** ***

…It’s Just A Fantasy…

…It’s Not The Real Thing…

…It’s Just A Fantasy…

…SOMETIMES A FANTASY…

This Is For All Of Y’all Dealing With The Burden Of A Long-Distance-Relationship.

They Can Be A Real Bastard Sometimes.

Not Because Of The Person On The Other End…

…But Simply Because Of The Heartache The Distance Can Cause At Times.

It’s Not Easy Trying To Handle The Issues That Come With NOT Being Able To See Your Special Someone Anytime You Please.

I’ve Had A Total Of 10 Really REAL Relationships.

Of Those 10…

…A Total Of 7 Were Distance Gigs.

I’ve Always Done This Distance Thing For One Major Reason…

…I’m VERY Hard To Be Around All The Time.

So…

…If I’m Serious About A Really REAL Relationship…

…I Tend To Find Those Whom Are An Hour Or So, Or MORE, Away From Me.

The Only Times I’ve Ever Been Able To Count A Relationship As A Success Of Any Kind Has Been Because Of Distance.

All Of Those Really REAL Relationships…

…Where The Other Person Lived Close Enough To See Me Whenever They Wanted…

…Always Ended Really REALLY Fast.

I Hate Distance…

…But It WORKS.

So I Keep On Keepin’ On With The Same Philosophy.

I May Not Like It At All…

…But It’s A Practice I’ve Carefully Cultivated Over The Years.

I Really REALLY Wish I Honestly Could Be Around My Significant-Other Much More Often…

…But I Know ME.

I’m A Veritable BASKET-CASE-FROM-HELL Sometimes.

Okay…

…Most Of The Time.

But I Can’t Help That.

I’ve Gotta Be Me…

…And Bradley Alan Isn’t Someone Others Tend To Cling To.

They Might Cling For A Month…

…Or Two…

…But In The End…

…It’s ALWAYS A Disaster.

And I Think…

BILLY JOEL

…Perfectly Captures All Of This With This Song…

“SOMETIMES A FANTASY”

.Period.

It’s A Great Song That Hits VERY Close To Home For ME.

It’s Also My ALL-TIME FAVE Of FAVES From MR. JOEL.

I’ve Known The Song Since VERY Early In My Childhood…

…And Have Always GREATLY Enjoyed It.

So I Figured It Was PERFECT For What I Wanted To Do With This Subject.

Long-Distance-Relationships Are Hard Work…

…And Can Be VERY Trying On A Person…

…Mentally…

…Physically…

…And Especially EMOTIONALLY.

BUT…

…They Do Have Their Qualities.

They Say Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder And I Firmly Believe That’s VERY True.

Why???

Because…

…When You Finally Do Get To See Each Other Face-To-Face…

…It’s Just Like Being A Kid On Christmas Morning.

All Of The Joy And Love Come Pouring In Like A Mighty Flood.

And THAT Is When You Realize The Distance Is TOTALLY WORTH IT.

.PERIOD.

;)

Please Have A Grand Day, My Peeps.

I’m Already Working To Make It A Damned Decent Day, Fo SHO.

I Just Hope My Efforts Do Exactly That For Me.

WE SHALL SEE, As They Say.

:D
