I'm All Out of Joke Lead-Ins, So Let's Just Cut to the Early Clue to the New Direction!


From the groundbreaking Rhino 1988 LP Golden Throats: The Great Celebrity Sing-Off, please enjoy the pneumatic Mae West and her avant-garde to the max version of "Twist and Shout."



As always, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

I loved that! A more convincing punked-out/ecstatic/inspired performance than a lot of "name" female rock singers I could mention.

Best performance by a singer over 60?

celebrities doing rock n roll cover songs

steve simels said...

Noooooooooooooo........


Heh heh....


I'll drop a hint or two after dinner...
:-)

But here's one -- it's the album itself, not the song.

Titles with ordinals!

[whispering:] Am I a weiner yet?

Album covers with really big breasts on the cover!!!

Hey I'm a guy!

ROTP(lumber)

PS: This song rocks better then the entire Eagles catalog> I'm serious. Really. Mostly. And I have don't steroids since I left Texas.

Albums with the singer's or group's name used as a pun or in the title of the album?

Best covers of songs previously recorded by the Beatles?

steve simels said...

Uh, nooo.......

And my earlier might even have been a reasonable guess but for Simels' preemptive hint that i missed ... "it's the album not the song." Hmmm:

Albums you thought would suck but didn't?

Albums with a sense of humor?

Rock albums featuring a movie star or other non-musical celebrity on the cover?

"And my earlier might even have been a reasonable guess but for Simels' preemptive hint that i missed ... 'it's the album not the song.'"

Oooooh! [whispering:]Turns out I'm a wienie...

Err, ah...titles with precious metals in them?

TMink said...

Body part album titles.

Body part album titles....

BUT IT'S WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Critically lambasted works that found a niche?

(Heh. Word verification: "cousingu")

steve simels said...

Okay....as I said, it's the album that's the clue, not the song.

A groundbreaking album.

What kind of effect might it have had on a listener?

:-)

Who Am Us Anyway? said...

Albums that made you wonder whether you were higher than you thought you were?

Curse you and your impossible riddles Simmels! Curse you!!!!!
