The Rocky Horror Picture Show

I'm reminded of Rocky Horror Picture Show with Brad and Janet and their car breaking down upon reviewing Thriller (previous post)

Calgary's Kensington Theater
The Rocky Horror Picture show was one of my first record albums I ever owned. Probably because I had won IT in a basketball tournament in Junior High! I never knew what I had in my possession until a (couple years) later . Certainly I listened to the music, but to be honest I thought it was strange and wierd . The music wasn't very good imo. It was quite disappointing . I was still a virgin~

It wasn't until later that I realized it was a smashing hit movie and that people actually were fanatic about it .

I went out with a guy who partied with all kinds of gays people who dressed up in their favorite characters, and for a long time 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' was featured at a local shady theater company pictured here.

Finally , I think the first time I ever saw it was on TV. It was probably because I knew it was adulterated and 'my-parents-wouldn't-have-approved' of the movie and I wasn't familiar with transvestites and gays and lesbians at the time.1977 In fact growing up, there weren't too many of them that I knew .

Anyway , admittedly I enjoyed the musical alot. 

Hey Janet (Yes Brad?), I've got something to say, (uh huh?)
I really loved the skillful way
You beat the other girls to the bride's bouquet! (oh...oh Brad.)

The river was deep but I swam it, Janet
The future is ours so let's plan it, Janet
So please don't tell me to can it, Janet
I've one thing to say and that's

Dammit, Janet, I love you...

The road was long but i ran it, Janet
There's a fire in my heart and you fan it, Janet
If there's one fool for you then I am it, Janet
Now I've one thing to say and that's

Dammit, Janet, I love you...

Here's a ring to prove that I'm no joker
There's three ways that love can grow
That's good, bad or mediocre
Oh J-A-N-E-T I love you so

Oh it's nicer than Betty Munroe had, oh Brad
Now we're engaged and I'm so glad, oh Brad
That you've met Mum and you know Dad, oh Brad
I've one thing to say and that's

Brad I'm mad for you too...

Oh Brad, Oh... dammit!
I'm mad, Oh Janet!
For you, I love you too
There's one thing left to do, and that's

Go see the man who began it
When we met in his science exam-it
Made me give you the eye and then panic
There's one thing to say and that's

Dammit, Janet, I love you...

Dammit Janet; Oh brad, I'm mad
Dammit Janet; I love you!
