Oh.My.God. Imagine going out for a fancy shmancy evening at the National Arts Centre, expecting to see some high-class acts.
And without warning have your eyes, your ears ...your very soul....assaulted by this cheap cabaret act.
Golly. I don't know about you. But I'd want my money back. Because that has to be the worst cover of a Beatles song EVAH. So bad it hurt my ears, and made my dog howl with excitement...no doubt believing it was the bitch next door calling him to come and play. Woof. Woof.
And can you believe the hypocrisy?
Singing a song promoting DRUGS!!!!
Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm, I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm, gonna try with a little help from my friends
Just as he's planning to jail millions of young Canadians for smoking marijuana.
And can you believe him
"I think when ordinary working people come home, turn on the TV and see … a bunch of people … at a rich gala, all subsidized by taxpayers, claiming their subsidies aren't high enough when they know those subsidies have actually gone up, I'm not sure that's something that resonates with ordinary people..."
And not even letting his poor wife escort John Baird to the ball. Even though she was the honorary chair.
Lordy. I still can't believe someone could be so cruel. That Johnzilla story is sadder than Cinderella.The Phantom of the Opera was scary eh? But this one's a MANIAC!!!!
Who'll do ANYTHING for a majority.
Oh well... a few thoughts come to mind as the full horror of this cheap cabaret act sinks in. An election can't be far off. I wish Ringo hadn't changed the lyrics:
Starr insisted on changing the first line which originally was "What would you do if I sang out of tune? Would you stand up and throw tomatoes at me?" He changed the lyric so that fans would not throw tomatoes at him should he perform it live.
And who the fuck gave Great
When it's not a even a Con song and that ridiculous nerd should stick to Perry Como.
Because that song belongs to US !!!
Especially when Joe sings it...
Now THAT is how it's done.
You know ...after listening to that song...it strikes me that with a little help from our friends...and a little unity on the progressive side.
We could send those crass Cons back to Alberta. Build a kinder,gentler,better country.
And then get REALLY high...
