I
woke up, jumped on a bus heading south, plugged the netbook in and clicked on
the player. It’s early and finally a few days to escape the confines of the
room and the worries that face my daily life. By 1:00p.m. I’ll be on the beach,
or even better donning a snorkel and mask while gazing down at a living reef in
crystal blue water. Actually, at this point Doo-Wop just seems appropriate for
my surroundings. I Only Have Eyes for You
begins and I gaze over at an old Rastafarian with dreadlocks that almost
shake to the song as he plays with his laptop.

            Love
Potion No. 9
comes on with a nice
saxophone to accentuate the flatland and the single story houses that decorate
the highway. This I Swear just makes me think that their mouths
must have been really sanitized by the teachers back then. Or, was there some
sort of guy’s chastity belt that locked up their balls until a certain age? The Angels Listened In must explain it.
Those same angels must have followed them back from church. Maybe there was
some strange liquid adhesive stuck in their holy water to keep their hands off
the girls.

            Island
of Love
starts up and I think the chocolate and soda must have set
something off in my head, because now it’s just making me anxious for this trip
to end. You’re So Fine is next. I’m
sitting here and nothing else could be further from what I’m thinking. More
like I’m wondering which trailer park’s overflowing trashcan did this beast
across the aisle crawl out of. I can just picture her licking peanut butter off
a cockroach.

Sorry
(I ran all the way home)
no
that’s the title of the song. Now, I’m really back home. I really wish I
could’ve run all the way home. Getting stuck in 100 degree heat after someone
stole a credit card and charged $600 was not what I expected when I left. My Love Will Never Die is completely the
opposite of how I feel about that place right now. Wiggle Wiggle? I really hope this isn’t a song about some weird
activity with a kind of farm animal. Okay, it’s about a girl.
Dedicated
To the One I Love
I’m sure I’ve heard a cover of this one before. Senorita, I Love You kinda fit with
where I was. South Florida has a majority of Latin Americans. A Teenager in Love is a song that
everyone has probably heard.
I could really keep going on
forever. It’s just been that kind of week. It’s really hard for me to review
this. I definitely have no business critiquing it. The album is loaded with
songs that have been incredibly influential to modern music. I’d have to say
that over ninety percent I’d heard before in either movies or cover tunes. I’d
definitely say that this is a must have for any aspiring film producer. I know
that no matter how bad my week got, I just put the album on and felt as if I
was walking through the reels for someone else to view.
