funny intro to the song :
The Inspiration for all Rock Music
" That´s right….thank you, love songs….there´s kind of only two kinds of love songs, really, there´s love ´we´re getting together´ songs and ´we´re infatuated,´ then there´s break-up songs….then, uh, I guess there´s ´fuck you´ songs but they´re usually in country music actually…and ´I´m gonna kill you´-songs….that´s usually in, uh, folk music and rap music…. so everybody takes their own approach to the whole thing but I, I kind of grew up, my mother grew up playing all the romantic songs on the radio and, uh, that´s what I heard every morning, in the 50´s was this whole generation of young men who were trying to sing like beautiful women and that was smart, that was very smart ´cause, you know, they´d, they´d sing like way, way up here, would be like, uh (sings the melody of ´Unchained Melody´ - without the words) I always thought that was, that was crafty because what they were, the seduction was ´I´m gonna come up and I´m gonna speak in your voice to you, uh, beautiful lady and I´m gonna be talking in your language, I´m coming up where you live and I´m a sensitive, understanding man and will you pull your pants down?´….that was, uh, that was that whole thing, you see, that is the subtext of all rock and roll music and, uh, I believe actually was the subtext of all classical music also but uh (chuckles) it is the great motivator for people to write music and, and you can tell because it works, it works well at the end of almost any, any rock song, it can be the last line also like, you know, ´It´s a town full of losers, we´re pulling out of here to win and will you pull your pants down?´…that works, ´Tramps like us, baby, we were born to run so will you pull your pants down?´….it works even like in the most kind of hardcore, sort of protest music, you know, that seems to be kind of aiming for something higher, it´s like ´It´s a hard rain gonna fall so you might as well pull your pants down´….so, uh, it is the motivation behind all, all great rock music is my, my humble opinion, one of the, one of the motivations, that´s why, I guess I didn´t write love songs for a long time, my father believed that they were all government, he was a post-pants down-guy (chuckles) he believed that you´re gonna get married, you´re gonna pay your taxes and work 9-to-5 and it was all government propaganda, uh, so I´ll leave it to the individual listener to decide but it explains why I wrote songs kind of like this next one, uh, of which I´m sure that line would fit in here somewhere but uh, uh, this is kind of, this is, I´ve only played this once before, this is kind of something, I don´t know, I suppose it was written for ´The Wild and the Innocent´ maybe but, uh….little on the obscure side, might be a love song but I´m not sure, you know….oh, let me see, I use….it´s this one, I think, well, I broke it, hold on, hold on, hold on a second, it´s almost there, yes, oh, hah, there goes Kevin´s job security (chuckles) alright, here we go…"
