A virtually bare-breasted Lynda Carter singing KISS’s disco hit “I Was Made For Loving You” backed by a flamboyant dance troop wearing the band’s signature make-up and outfits from the Dynasty era. Do not watch after ingesting any amount of hallucinogens.

Just Got Back

80s,Music,Uncategorized 23 July 2011 | Comments Off

Well, apparently I took the death of Barbara Billingsley a lot harder than I thought I would. I would like to apologize to my non-existent readership for the inert state of this blog circa 2011. I aim to change that, and the plan is to get off my duff and share a little retro content [...]

KISS Songs Explained: Rock and Roll Over (1976)

70s,KISS,Music 30 September 2010 | Comments Off

When someone asks me, “What’s your favorite KISS album?” I don’t always give the same answer.  Depending on my mood, it could be one of several.  Dressed to Kill.  KISS.  Revenge. All good choices. But probably more than half the time, I’d respond with Rock and Roll Over, the latest entry in our regular feature [...]

Apropos of nothing, I bring you the Black Crowes (3/5 of them actually) in their network TV debut on Late Night With David Letterman: That first record just killed me and this was one of my favorite songs.

Sure I’m CFK, But You Gotta Love Me

00s,40s,Movies,Music 22 September 2010 | Comments Off

You magnificent bastard. “What would you like to be?” “Everything you hate.” Those are lines lifted from Citizen Kane and used to great effect in the White Stripes’ “The Union Forever” (from their breakthrough album White Blood Cells.)   Kane was one of those movies that I had never gotten around to seeing for one [...]

KISS Songs Explained: Destroyer (1976)

70s,KISS,Music 16 September 2010 | Comments Off

Destroyer is without doubt the most celebrated album in the KISS discography. In a sense it’s their Sgt. Pepper’s, to use a Beatles analogy. Hot off the success of Alive! and working with producer Bob Ezrin, the band made a concerted effort to do something bigger and more ambitious with this record. Departing from the [...]

Kanye’s Retro in Red

10s,80s,Music 13 September 2010 | Comments Off

Did anyone else notice Kanye West dressed like a certain 80s icon at last night’s VMAs? He even had the wayfarer-style sunglasses on at one point.  I kept hoping he would break into “Heart and Soul”, but no dice. Nobody tips the shades better.
