SHE’S A MAGIC MOUNTAIN!

AUDIBLE FLUX: RETRO FLUX

This is the first of a regular topic I will be trying; it’s called a “retro topic”. The premise is if blogs existed in the 80’s, this is something I might write about. And my first topic is, of course, the band Winger.

You remember Kip and his sexy-ass bass antics. I bet you also remember the song Seventeen.

I was thinking, if that song were released today, Kip probably would be arrested (wasn’t Kip like 33 at the time?) and the F.C.C. would have fined Clear Channel for playing the song. Here are some of the Lyrics, for those who don’t remember.

And just when I thought she was comin’ to my door

She whispered sweet and brought me to the floor, she said

I’m only seventeen,(KIP, SHE’S TELLIN YOU MAN…WALK AWAY NOW KIP!)

but I’ll show you love like you’ve never seen

She’s only seventeen, daddy says she’s too young, but she’s old enough for me

Come to my place, we can talk it over, oh everything going down in your head

She said take it easy, I need some time, time to work it out, to make you mine

And just when I thought she was comin’ to my door

She whispered sweet and brought me to the floor, she said

I’m only seventeen, you ain’t seen love, ain’t seen nothing like me

She’s only seventeen, seventeen

If those lyrics don’t scare you, take a look at some more disturbing ones that show up later:

She’s a magic mountain, she’s a leather glove

I’ve got chills.
