Anthem for '08?

"Edith Sitwell giving readings
14 Moscow Road
Osbert's giving champagne parties
Sachie's got a cold
Gertrude's hanging pictures
Alice making tea
Me, I do the only thing that still
makes sense to me

I do the Rock"

Now you've got me watching Tim Curry Youtube clips.

I forgot about this song. I've been going through a major music nostalgia kick recently, watching skinny Elvis Costello videos from the Armed Forces era. Now I'm going to have to look this up.

Maryrose et Wade,

Stimulatin', stimulating! Poor skinny Elvis had the world saying he was great, for being skinny and audaciously bespectacled, & having that voice. Tim had to work w/out much raw music talent. My head's w/ Elvis, heart firmly with Tim.

Poetry c. now feels so much more Tim Curry in a club c. '78, trying anything to get something going, than it does, say, Elvis c. anytime. Or does to me. Hence '08's anthem (unless I pick a Laxmikant-Pyarelal).
