    Brian Wilson by Barenaked Ladies

    During live shows they change the lyric from, “I had a dream that I was 300 pounds, and though I was very heavy, I flouted ’till I couldn’t see the ground” to, “I had a dream that I was 300 pounds, and during Lockdown, I really was 300 pounds!”

    Take me Home – Phil Collins

    Another marvellous music video. The woman playing Collins’ wife at the end, sounds like a young Margaret Thatcher.

    Another Girl, Another Planet – the Only Ones

    A ’70’s song that sounds as if it was written & recorded in the ’90’s.

    There are a couple of streets like that on my paper-round, BD. One street has has 24 3-bedroom houses on one side & 14 4-bedroom ones on the other. The other street has 12 2-bedroom houses & 1 5-bedroom one. Imagine!
    The people who live in both the big houses & the smaller ones are nice, though.

    Anyway, in keeping with the rebellious rock theme, here’s Eddie & the Hot Rods with ‘Do Anything you Wanna do’:

    XR don’t want to change the system, they just want to solve a problem caused by capitalism…without getting rid of capitalism.

    They think they’re like the anti-segregation activists in the southern U.S. in the ‘Sixties – when they’re really much similar to the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament.

    If he wants to play Top Trumps with organisations, fine: the SPGB – 300 members; XR – 1 million members; the Jehovah’s Witnesses – 8.5 million members.

    I can’t wait until December to post this song.

    Christmas Dream – Perry Como

    I could have sworn it was written by Burt Bacharach & Hal David, but it was written by Andrew Lloyd-Webber & Tim Rice (except the German lyrics, which were written by some German dude).

    If I Had a Million Dollars by Barenaked Ladies

    Thanks for posting that other Weezer song, Rod. I only knew their song ‘Buddy Holly’, but will definitely check them out, after listening to ‘Island in the Sun’.

    Buddy Holly by Weezer

    This has a superb music video, to boot.

    New Year’s Day by U2

    This has the memorable lyric: ‘And so we’re told this is the golden age
    ‘And gold is the reason for the wars we wage
    ‘Though I want to be with you
    ‘Be with you night and day
    ‘Nothing changes
    ‘On New Year’s Day’

    – Rod Shaw

    You’re right. It was the lyric website that got it wrong. I should have noticed it was “Milo Venus”, because of the gummy Venus de Milo from the Simpsons’ episode: “Homer Badman”. Isn’t it pronounced: Meelo?

    It’s good to know other people are listening to these songs, and I’m not just posting them for myself.

    Brown-Eyed Handsome Man – Buddy Holly (originally by Chuck Berry)

    Best lyric: Marlo Venus was a beautiful lass, she had the world in the palm of her hand. She lost both her arms in a wrestling match to meet a brown-eyed handsome man. She went and won herself a brown-eyed handsome man.

    In 1998, two animated films about insects were released: a Bug’s Life and Antz. Even though a Bug’s Life is more anti-imperialism, both films have Marxist undertones (they’re especially strong in Antz).

    Here’s a great scene from a Bug’s Life that shows the illusion of power:
