    “Is Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes the only goddam song they have?”

    But Timothy Leary didn’t utter his famous ‘Turn on, tune in, drop out.’ phrase until 1966.

    The sky is a neighbourhood and the neighbours are playing their music way too loud!

    The twinkling is deafening.

    If they’d only look up . . . .

    Oh no! She’s dancing The Macarena again!

    It’s time to replace the washer and dryer.

    She is either dancing or frustrated.
    He seems to have been stunned to silence.
    The face above them… is shouting at them but cannot be heard.

    And the electronics equipment may have everything to do with it.

    … once you see it …

    Published in 1963. They listened to the stars before it was cool.

    That’s the same look I give my son whenever he says “I saw this story on Buzzfeed today…”

    The expressions on their faces make me sure that I don’t wanna.

    He’s gone catatonic, she’s tearing her hair out, the tiny guy atop the giant speakers is headless, and the stars are a Smirky McSmug face comprising the world’s largest BEHIND (or Above) YOU!

    Marcello Mastriani’s thousand-yard stare may be because their pirate radio station only has one record, ‘Patricia’ by Perez Prado.

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    1963 — was this defective audio gear something Ralph Nader investigated before the Corsair?


    @Tat: La Folle Vita.

    @Tat (#16):

    Hey! What’s wrong with Perez Prado?

  19. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Elizabeth Shue getting nekkid.

  20. Tat Wood Says:

    @Hammy: nothing’s intrinsically wrong with the Prez; I was riffing on that bit at the end of La Dolce Vita.

    Although in late 1994 we were all at risk of hearing ‘Guaglione’ once too often

  21. Hammy Says:

    @Tat (#20):

    Ah, okay. I know nothing about La Dolce Vita. I’m not that erudite….

    I wonder what Lee Fellows would think of me now. 🙁

  22. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Hammy: He’d think you were part of the nyuk-nyuk crowd. It’s okay, Oscar Lee has contempt for all of us, the whole spectrum, the erudite and the Stooges fans.

    (Must confess I had to cross-reference Perez Prado; though I’ve seen “La Dolce Vita”, in fillum history class even, I didn’t know the name of the musician.)
