Barracuda by Heart


Winner! Winner! Fish and chicken dinner!

In interviews, Ann Wilson reveals that the song was inspired by her anger at their record label that was lying, cheating and spreading rumors about the band. So the barracuda was the BS of the music industry. In other interviews, Nancy Wilson reveals that they "borrowed" the song's famous riff from the band Nazareth who Heart had toured with in Europe. Nazareth wasn't very happy about it. (I wonder who the barracuda is in that story.)

And now, (still) in the category 70's Rock, name that song...

I'll shine up the old brown shoes
Put on a brand new shirt
I'll get home early from work
If you say that you love me
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Winner! Winner! Crying Chicken Dinner!!

This is one of those rare songs where the live version is considered definitive. Whereas the studio version plods along in an almost boring two-step fashion, when Cheap Trick played it at Budokan it was faster with two guitar solos, like bringing a song to the boiling point. Note that on the studio version an effect was used to echo the word "crying". So, if you wonder what the Japanese girls are screaming at them on the live version, it's "crying, crying crying" in mimicry of the record.

Studio version...



Live at Budokan...

And now, in the category 50's Country, name that song...

I got a hot rod Ford, and a two dollar bill
And I know a spot right over the hill
There's soda pop and the dancing's free
So if you wanna have fun, come along with me

Winner! Winner! Cooking Chicken for Dinner!!

On an airplane ride, Hank Williams would write the song "Hey Good Lookin'" in a mere 20 minutes with Minnie Pearl and her husband watching him do it. He wrote it for his friend Jimmy Dickens to sing but was so pleased with the way it turned out decided to keep it for himself. The video below is rare in that very few Hank Williams performances were filmed. Note the young June Carter (years before she met, much less married Johnny Cash) clowning around at the beginning.

One leaf is sunshine, the second is rain
Third is the roses that grow in the lane
No need explaining, the one remaining
Is somebody I adore

Well, my dog died just yesterday and left me all alone
The finance company dropped by today and repossessed my home
That's just a drop in the bucket compared to losing you....

Winner! Winner! Overlooked Chicken Dinner!!

Not written for anyone in particular, "I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover" became three hit records for three different artists in 1927. It was revived in the 40s and spent another 18 weeks on the charts. These days it's probably best remembered for being often used in Warner Bros. cartoons.

Uh ... I'm not really sure what's going right now. Perhaps Dr. Demento can enlighten me. For now I'll just let it ride...
