Oh, Yeah, IT IS ON!!!
I see your white flag, and raise you some Scorpions:
Actually, seeing the real thing would probably be less painful and/or revolting. This is a prime example of what gave the 80’s such a bad name. It’s so…so…so robotically bombastic, phallically obsessed, and sub-par-IQ puerile all at the same time. If Shit had an anthem, this would be it.
And now I feel guilty, because it’s so disrespectful of Dennis Hopper to post something like this on the day he passed. I’ll atone with the following, which for whatever reason was the first thing that sprang to mind as a fitting memorial, because I think the song seems to have the vibe and the sensibility that Dennis Hopper might have imagined for his own personal heaven. Beautiful lyrics and a gorgeous vid as well:
May he rest in peace.
Update: Wouldn’t you know it, Youtube defeats my good intentions and redemption by disallowing the embed. Do go ahead and click through – it’s worth it, and you’ve already waded through all the bad stuff to get there.
