The Song Stuck In My Head: “MAXWELL’S SILVER HAMMER” by THE BEATLES (1969)

… …

“…Back In School Again

Maxwell Plays The Fool Again

Teacher Gets Annoyed

Wishing To Avoid An Unpleasant Scene

She Tells Max To Stay

When The Class Has Gone Away

So He Waits Behind

Writing Fifty Times

“I Must Not Be So…”

“…But When She Turns Her Back On The Boy

He Creeps Up From Behind…”

MAXWELL’S SILVER HAMMER Is Off Of The 1969 AlbumABBEY ROADBy THE BEATLES !!!

“…BANG BANG

MAXWELL’S SILVER HAMMER

Came Down Upon Her Head

BANG BANG

MAXWELL’S SILVER HAMMER

Made Sure That She Was Dead. …”

… … …

… …

I’ve Had This Little Number…

MAXWELL’S SILVER HAMMER

by THE BEATLES

…Rolling Around In My Head The Past Two-Days…

…And I Simply Couldn’t Take It Anymore.

I Knew If I Wanted It Out Of My Head Badly Enough, I’d Blog About It.

And So…

…Here I Sit…

…At My Computer…

…Writing To All Of Y’all…

…Hoping Like Hell This Actually Works!

(*teehehe*)

πŸ˜‰

It’s Not Because I Have Anything Against This Song.

Far From It.

But When You’re Wandering About The House Whistling It To Yourself…

…Yeah…

…It’s Time To Blog It, Baby.

I Suppose I Could Also Tie This Into The Coming Day Of Halloween, Since It’s About A Young Dude Who Likes To Beat People To Death With A Hammer.

Now How Often Do You Think One Could Blog About Something Of That Sort?!

EXACTLY, My Peeps, Not Very Often At All.

πŸ˜€

I’ve Made Mention Before That…

MAXWELL’S SILVER HAMMER

…Is A Guilty Pleasure Favorite Of Mine…

…And I’m Sure There Are Others Out There Whom Do Think Of It In The Same Manner.

Is It THE BEST SONG From…

THE BEATLES

?!?

Nah.

Not Really.

Is It A Super Fun And Infectiously Catchy Little Number, Regardless Of Who Did It?!?

YOU BETCHA, My Peeps!!!

Released In 1969 On The Album…

ABBEY ROAD

…This Song Wasn’t Well Received.

Most Folks Would Expect A Colder Reception For A Song Like This One.

I Find It To Be Rater Cute In Its Quirkiness.

It’s Definitely An Odd Jam, That’s A BIG FO SHO.

I’m Sure There Are More People Out There Who Hate This Song, Versus People Who Love It As I Do.

But That’s Okie The Dokie, My Poke-Poke Pokeys!!!

I’ve Never Had Any Issues In Loving Things Most People Can’t Stand.

And NO, I Don’t Just Like The Song Because Everyone Else Hates It.

Honestly, I’ve Been A Fan Of This Song Since The 1980s, Before I Even Knew Other People Despised It At All.

I Think It’s A Fun Song, And…

…Since This Is MY Blog…

…I Figure I’m Entitled To MY Own Opinion…

…Especially When It’s Something The Bulk Of Civilization Can’t Stand!

(*hehehe*)

If You’ve Never Heard Of This Song Before, No Worries.

I’m Sure There Are Many Peeps Whom DO Know The Song, And Simply Wish They Didn’t.

πŸ˜‰

I Understand, My Peeps…

…I Do I Do.

ANYWAY…

…Y’all Please Please PLEASE Take Care And Be Good.

If Any Of Y’all Need Anything, Hit Me Up.

I Probably Won’t Be Able To Do Anything About It, But You Can STILL Hit Me Up.

Ya Know…

…If Ya Wanna.

No Pressure, Kiddies, No Pressure.

Remember This One?!

… … …

You Said You Didn’t Need Her…

…You Sacrificed A Good Love…

…To Satisfy Your Pride…

It Reminds Me Of Fun Times Spent With An Exceptional Friend…

…Years And Years Ago…

…When I Found-Out It’s HIS Favorite Song By…

MILLI VANILLI

πŸ˜€

I Was Never A Fan Of The Pop Duo, Until Then.

And I Still Don’t Consider Myself A Fan Of Theirs.

Just This ONE Song.

Now…

…Are You Ready For My Tie-In?!

Alright.

This Friend ALSO Just Happens To Be An Even Bigger Fan Of…

The DETROIT TIGERS

He’s The One Who Bought Me This DETROIT TIGERS T-Shirt Many A Moon Ago!

!!! !!! !!!

HA!

Bet You Didn’t Think I Could Make Mentioning This Song Relevant, Did Ya!

DID YA!!

HA HA!!!

Yes.

I’m Serious, My Peeps.

Thing Is…

…I Can’t Listen To This Song At All Without Thinking About Him…

…And All Those Crazy Crazy Nights Spent Kickin’-About…

…Getting Into AND Out-Of All Sorts Of Sordid Trouble.

He’s Crazy Like I Am…

…And Could (almost) Always Party Harder Than ANYONE ALIVE!

And When The Time Was Right…

…When The Party Was Starting To Look Like It Was Slipping…

…He’d Bust-Out…

MILLI VANILLI

BLAME IT ON THE RAIN

I Hadn’t Listened To This Song For Quite Some Time…

I Was Thumbing Through Ye Ole MP3Player…

…And I Just Happened To Land On This Crackerjack Of A Ditty.

FLASH GORDON

(1980)

πŸ˜€

πŸ˜€

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?!?

πŸ˜‰

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.

πŸ˜€

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!!!

πŸ˜‰

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

"It's CRAP-TASTIC, DUDE!"

πŸ™‚

Now Who Could Argue With THAT?!?

Exactly My Point.

πŸ˜‰

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!!!

πŸ˜€

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!!!

The Song Stuck In My Head: “I WANNA GO BACK” by EDDIE MONEY (1986)

I…

…Was Listenin’ To The Radio…

…I Heard A Song…

…Remindin’ Me Of Long Ago…

…Back Then I Thought…

…That Things Were Never Gonna Change…

…It Used To Be…

…That I Never Had To Feel The Pain…

…I Know Now…

…That Things Will Never Be The Same Now…

… … …

I WANNA GO BACKWas A Hit Single For EDDIE MONEY In 1986

… … …

…I WANNA GO BACK…

…And Do It All Over…

…But I Can’t Go Back…

…I Know…

…I WANNA GO BACK…

…’Cause I’m Feelin’ So Much Older…

…But I Can’t Go Back…

…I Know…

…Oh No. …

… … …

I WANNA GO BACKIs Also Included On EDDIE MONEY‘s Greatest Hits AlbumSOUND OF MONEY

<><><><>….<><><><>….<><><><>

<><><><><><>

<><><>

I’m Gonna Warn You Now, My Peeps…

…This Song…

I WANNA GO BACK

by EDDIE MONEY

…Is Irritatingly Infectious.

.Period.

It’s One Of Those Songs You Hear And You’re Like…

"Oh Jeez! It's That Damned EDDIE MONEY Song! I'll Be Humming It For A Frickin' WEEK!"

And That Would Be A Very True Assessment Of The Situation.

Don’t Get Me Wrong…

…I Consider EDDIE MONEY To Be One Of My Personal Guilty Pleasures.

I Don’t Know A Lot Of Folks Who Like/Enjoy His Music, These Days.

I Do Remember Being In BREMERTON, WASHINGTON In 1999 When EDDIE MONEY Had A Concert There For The Sailors.

Tickets For The Event???

$1

.Period.

That’s Right, My Peeps.

A LIVE EDDIE MONEY CONCERT…

…For $1.

We Even Had A Little Song Going Around.

"I'VE GOT TWO-TICKETS FOR TWO-BUCKS..."

Oh Yeah…

…We’re Talking HIGH CLASS, Fo SHO!

Anyway…

…I Heard This Little Number…

I WANNA GO BACK

…During My Morning Walk.

I’m Sorry To Say It…

…But I Have Yet To Expel It From My Conscious Mind.

πŸ˜•

ALLLLLLL DAAAAAAAY LOOOOOOONG…

…I’ve Been Walking About The House Singing It To Myself.

Sometimes Out-Loud…

…Sometimes It’s Part Of My Inner-Dialogue.

Regardless Of How It’s Happening…

…The Point Is…

…IT’S HAPPENING!!!

EDDIE MONEY

…Is…

…TRULY…

…MADLY…

…DEEPLY…

…STUCK IN MY HEAD!!!

However…

…I Ain’t Gonna Bitch About It Tooooooo Much.

I Mean, Who Would Listen?

And Even If I Found Someone To Listen…

…Would They Give A Rats Ass???

NOPE.

NOT. AT. ALL. FO. SHO.

They Just Wouldn’t Want Me Singing It While I Was In Their Presence.

WHY?!?

Because, My Silly Peeps, Then THEY Would Start SINGING ALONG TOO!!!

Like I Said…

…It’s Irritatingly Infectious.

Lucky For Me, Though…

…I Do So Enjoy Some EDDIE MONEY From Time To Time.

Today…

…It’s Simply Being Forced Upon Me…

…By Me!

When There’s No-One To Blame But One’s Self…

…All You Can Do Is Stay Calm…

…Stay Cool…

…And Enjoy It While It Lasts.

Then You Just Pray It Doesn’t Last Tooo Damned Looong.

πŸ˜‰

Am I Right, My Peeps?!?

I’m Pretty Sure I’m Right.

Right???

RIGHT!!!

“MR. BASEBALL” (1992): A Forgotten Classic …or… A Guilty Pleasure???

PERHAPS BOTH!?!?!

Possibly.

πŸ˜‰

TOM SELLECK Is "MR. BASEBALL" (1992)

I’m Fairly Certain An Argument Can Be Made To Go Either Direction On This One.

Here’s A Couple Quickie Questions For Ya’z:

#1.) IS “MR. BASEBALL” An Oscar Winning MASTERPIECE?

No.No It’s Not.

#2.) IS “MR. BASEBALL” Perfectly FUN And ENTERTAINING, Regardless Of Who You Are??

JEEBUS HARRY, I Sure HOPE So.

#3.) Does MY ENTIRE FAMILY Have A Long-Term CRUSH On MR. TOM SELLECK???

YOU HAVE NO IDEA!

That’s A River That Runs DEEP!

VERY VERY VERY DEEP!

*** *** ***

TOM SELLECK

…Is…

JACK ELLIOT

…A Heavy-Hitter For The New York Yankees…

…Who Hasn’t Been Hitting Much Of Anything Recently.

So…

…The Yankees Decide To Replace ELLIOT With A Rookie…

…And They Trade ELLIOT To Another Baseball Team…

…IN JAPAN!!!

Now…

JACK ELLIOT

…Must Learn The Ways Of TEAMWORK…

…Something He’s Sorely Lacking In.

JAPAN Has A Wonderful Baseball Tradition…

…And Now ELLIOT Must Adapt…

…To…

…A New Way Of Thinking…

…A New Way Of Playing…

…And…

…A New Way Of Living.

The Film Is Laced With Comedy AND Drama…

…All The While Highlighting That Game We All Know AND Love!!!

While A Lot Of Folks Didn’t Get Into…

MR. BASEBALL

…I Sure As Hell Did.

BUT…

…For ME…

…It Has Almost Totally Become A Family Affair.

Whenever It’s On…

…I Truly LOVE Getting Together With My Fam…

…As We Watch One Of Our FAVE-FAVES Of ALL-TIME…

TOM SELLECK

…Do His Thing…

…Bringing Joy To The Heart…

…A Tear To The Eye…

…And Plenty Plenty Of LAUGHS!!!

I.

LOVE.

MR. BASEBALL

.PERIOD.

So…

…Please PLEASE, My Peeps…

…Give It Another Go.

Give It The Ole College-Try.

It’s A Flick That DESERVES Your Love…

…As It Tries To Bring-Out The True Baseball-Fan In Us All.

Oh…

…And…

…Did I Mention…

TOM SELLECK

…Is The Star?!?!?!

Another CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT Weekend DOUBLE SHOT: RESURRECTION (1999) & KNIGHT MOVES (1992)

Today’s Double Shot Features Two Of The BEST From…

CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT

…And We’ll Begin With…

…MY TOTAL FAVE-FAVE CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT FILM Of ALL-TIME…

“RESURRECTION”

(1999)

"RESURRECTION" Is Simply GREAT! CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT Is Hot On The Trail Of A Serial Killer Who's So Good AT What He Does, The Only Evidence Left Behind Is Done-So ON PURPOSE. When This Flick Came Out In 1999, It Was Slammed As Being A Cheep Rip-Off Of "SE7EN" Though It Really Isn't. If You Wanna See CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT Actually FLEX HIS ACTING CHOPS, "RESURRECTION" May Be The Flick For You. I Had A Sincerely WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE Watching This One Over And Over AND OVER AGAIN! It's Directed By RUSSELL MULCAHY, Who's The Director Responsible For Another CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT BLOCKBUSTER, "HIGHLANDER"!!! And, It's Written By BRAD MIRMAN, Whom We Shall Discuss More In A Moment. Trust Me My Peeps, I Shant Lead You Astray. When You Get Down To The Bare-Bones Of It, "RESURRECTION" Is A Shockingly DECENT ROMP Of A Motion Picture, And A TRUE UNKNOWN GEM In The Annals Of CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT LORE!

… … …

As For The Second-Half Of Your DOUBLE SHOT…

“KNIGHT MOVES”

(1992)

"KNIGHT MOVES" Is Another PERSONAL FAVE-FAVE From The CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT Collection. In This One, There's A Killer On The Loose, BUT Everyone THINKS The Killer Is A Champion Chess Player (Played By CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT), When In Reality, He's Just A Pawn In The Killer's Deadly Game! This One's Got Some Quality Actors To Support CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT. TOM SKERRITT, DIANE LANE, & DANIEL BALDWIN All Co-Star. "KNIGHT MOVES" Was ALSO Written By BRAD MIRMAN (He Must Be A CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT Fan Also!), And Is A Helluva Lot Of Fun To Watch! It's A Flick I Can EASILY Recommend To Anyone Who Enjoys, Either A Good "Cat & Mouse" Game, OR Just CHRISTOPHER LAMBERT!!!

… … …

Hopefully That DOUBLE SHOT Went Down Extra-EXTRA SMOOOOOTH!

It Sure FELT Like It Did.

Creedence Clearwater Revival AND The Return Of Swamp Thing: A Guilty Pleasure Match Made In Campy-Horror’ish Heaven

Well, I Do Believe The Title Of This Piece Sincerely Speaks For Itself.

And YES, I’m VERY Serious About This One.

It’s Been VERY Near&Dear To My HEART…

…Since The Film’s Release In 1989.

Are We Ready To Jive???…

…???

M’KAY.

IT’S JIVIN’ TIME!!!

\\//\\//\\//\\/\//\\//\\//\\//\\//\\//

FIRST-OFF…

…Please…

…Allow Me To Establish What I’m Jivin’ ’bout.

This Is The Film…

“THE RETURN OF SWAMP THING”

(1989)

"The Return Of Swamp Thing" (1989) - Starring DICK DUROCK, LOUIS JOURDAN, HEATHER LOCKLEAR, and SARAH DOUGLAS, and was Directed by JIM Wynorski

..

This Is The Main-Character…

“SWAMP THING”

(Hero)

"Swamp Thing" ("The Return Of Swamp Thing" (1989)) Played By DICK DUROCK

And THIS Is…

“CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL”

(Amazing Band)

CCR (aka Creedence Clearwater Revival) Circa 1969.

..

And The Song That Sparked The Whole Thing Is…

“BORN ON THE BAYOU”

(1969)

The A.MA.ZING. Song "BORN ON THE BAYOU" Was Off Of CCR's 1969 Album "BAYOU COUNTRY"

..

And This Is My Nephew’s Representation Of…

“LEGO CCR”

(Original “Ari Works Of Lego-Art”)

See, My Peeps... I WAS Being Serious. The Crafty Nephew (aka Mr. Ari, aka Boss) Really DID Build His Very Own CCR With LEGOS! Yep. Nifty, Eh?!?!?! πŸ˜€

..

Basically…

…The Film Is A Regular…

…hmm…

…Pant-Load Of Excitement AND Fun?

That’s (likely) A Descriptive Enough Phrase (maybe).

The Original “SWAMP THING” Was Directed By Horror Freak WES CRAVEN…

…And Was A Damned-FUN Experience…

…With Some QUALITY Actors Taking On The MAIN ROLES.

In “THE RETURN OF SWAMP THING”…

…hmm…

…We Get HEATHER LOCKLEAR.

Yeah…
