A few minutes ago we asked on air: What makes it “One of those Days” for you and What makes it better? Obviously there will be more here after the show, but for now….  Comment and tell us yours

Don’t Go Bacon My Heart? I couldn’t if I fried?

Yesterday’s show was fun with so many people in chat. We rocked and we rolled, classically of course and we enjoyed the company of some good friends.   Howl dug deep to move us into seat-dancing mode by playing the likes of Warrant, Scorpions, Ozzy and AC/DC…he even threw in a little Joan and Sammy toward the end of our two hours.  (Talk about time flying.)

This week’s highlights; we want to give a shout out to our good friend Jamie of the band Infliction, with a giant “thumbs-up” on his cancer free news.  Also want to thank Jimmy Allan Sine for dropping into Live Chat to take a virtual spin around the dance floor with me. We are looking forward to some of his new tracks in the near future.  We welcomed back an old friend, Dea, into chat, was good to have her back from her travels and business!

We chatted a little about family and some situations that make for awkward moments around the table during family gatherings.  We had another on air request from Howl – send us your stories about “awkward” situations that lead to “awkward” family moments.

Of course, the “Rat-tastic” Rat stopped by to crack open a cold one with us.  Our late coming Georgia regular, Grady, dropped in and the chat moved to food as we proceeded to salivate and discuss the concept of Bacon.

One meat; so many uses!   Ergo..the title of this blog….

Bacon wrapped shrimp, bacon wrapped pineapple, hell we even talked about bacon wrapped bacon (Canadian, of course).  Why are we so obsessed with bacon?   We heard tell of such things as chocolate covered bacon pieces and chocolate bacon ice cream.  We put bacon on burgers and we roll donuts in bacon.  It’s the latest bacon Jell-O shots and  bacon Vodka that make me think perhaps people have taken this bacon thing a bit too far.  You can watch entire shows on this magical meat.  Check out the United States of Bacon: Destination America or the Travel channel’s “Bacon Paradise”.

Out of this entire conversation, we came up with one idea that seemed to make sense.  The Bacon Taco just sounds good!  Let us know if you agree? We’d love to have more bacon recipes, ideas or crazy things done with bacon or stories of family awkwardness.

“Blinded by the Light” by Manfred Mann’s Earth Band is probably one of the most misheard songs of all time. Makes you wonder how does a douche get wrapped up and besides that, what is it doing inside a rotor? As if I know what that is? Perhaps it’s because “revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night.” just doesn’t sound that exciting or sexy to listeners. So I researched this just a bit. I discovered that this is 60s slang for a 1932 Ford Coupe which explains revving it up and it being a runner. Either way, our listeners came up with a few alternate lyrics of their own during the show last Wednesday. Check ‘em out and feel free to comment.

Alternate lyrics by Exo Listeners

Revved up like a deuce, another runner in the night

woke up like a douche, in the middle of the night

WRAPPED UP LIKE A DOUCHE, INTO THE ROTOR IN THE NIGHT

Indians in the summer with a teenage diplomat

INDIANS IN A SLUMBER AT THE TEENAGE DISCOTECH

In the dumps with the mumps as the adolescent pumps his way into his hat

IN THE DUMPS WITH THE MOST AND THE ADOLESCENT PUNKS ON HIS WAY INTO HIS ASS

 

The calliope crashed to the ground

THROWING THE COLOSTOMY BAG TO THE GROUND

 

And little Early-Pearly came by in his curly-wurly and asked me if I needed a ride

AND THE LITTLE EARLY MADE MY ANUS A QUIRLY WHIRLY AND ASKED ME IF I NEEDED TO RIDE

 

 

“Are there other songs that regularly get misheard?”, you ask. Below are the most common according to polls taken;

 

  • “Bingo jet had a light on” is heard instead of “Big ol’ jet airliner” (by Steve Miller)
  • “Someone shave my wife tonight” in place of “Someone Save My Life Tonight” (by Elton John)
  • “My Kind of Lover” is what it is but, the way (Billy Squier) sings it, sounds like he’s saying “My Candelabra”.
  • Then there’s the song “Bad moon on the rise” with the line that can’t possibly be

“There’s a bathroom on the right”. (by CCR)

 

If you have some creative selective hearing of your own going on when you listen to the classics of rock, shoot us a note here on the blog or email us at DJHowl@exosphereradio.com.
