Woohoo
Woohoo

Debbie just hit the wall
She never had it all
One Prozac a day
Husbands a CPA
Her dreams went out the door
When she turned twenty four
Only been with one man
What happen to her plan?

She was gonna be an actress
She was gonna be a star
She was gonna shake her ass
On the hood of white snake's car
Her yellow SUV is now the enemy
Looks at her average life
And nothing has been alright

Springstein, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
But she still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985

Woohoo
(1985)
Woohoo

She's seen all the classics
She knows every line
Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink
Even Saint Elmo's Fire
She rocked out to wham
Not a big Limp Biscuit fan
Thought she'd get a hand
On a member of Duran Duran

Where's the mini-skirt made of snake skin
And who's the other guy singing in Van Halen
When did reality become T.V.
What ever happen to sitcoms, game shows
(on the radio there was)

Springstein, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
But she still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985

Woohoo

She hates time make it stop
When did Motley Crew become classic rock?
And when did Ozzy become an actor?
Please make this stop
Stop!
And bring back

Springstein, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
But she still preoccupied

I can appreciate some covers, but this just doesn't add anything.
I love the BFS original, as it so suits their musical and lyrical style.
Don't get what this cover is for.
This song is just not nearly as clever as it wants to think it is.
This was just so NOT needing a remake.........ugh{#Naughty}
But is the lead guitar as big as the one for Bowling?
BFS is a great cover band as well. They do a great "I Ran" (Flock of Seagulls).

Well, those of you who hate this track can blame me.  I uploaded it.  It was, like, my eighth attempt to get something into the playlist and I was a little stunned to see it accepted after being turned down on "Boom Boom Mancini" by Warren Zevon and a couple of really terrific Forró numbers.  I think this remake is catchy and fun, and am surprised at the negative reactions and the low rating.  Just in case you're curious, it got 19-to-1 "thumbs up" from the LRC crowd.
  
Well listening to it gave me pleasure jdbaldwin. Thank you.

Took the words out of my mouth!

Still, I think the piano works as a bass replacement (that is a piano, right?). Especially following Tori (ironically singing about the 80s). Good segue.
This compilation is fabulous, but this cover is hardly the one they should be playing.  I uploaded RT doing "Oops, I Did It Again" (which was immediately sorried - go figure) - he shreds on it, brings out the cynicism in the brilliant way that only he can - and then has an acoustic guitar Renaissance breakdown in the middle of it.

How bizarre...

 

Thanks that just about sums it up for me as well.
OMFG!!!!!! MAKE IT STOP!!!!!!! Another failure at a remake.
Make it stop... stop....stop!
Saw Thompson two years ago in a local arts venue. He rocked and I was astonished to think of how long he has been on the road. The man is dedicated to his art.
he said it... "please make it stop!"
Oh, c'mon kids, this is fun!

{#Jump}
I didn't think Thompson could sing that fast.

Giving him a 7 for effort.  The song still reeks no matter who sings it...

This project/tour/dvd is a music lesson from Richard. Songs from the years 1000 ad to 1999 ad. Bowling for Soup fell somewhere's in there.


Are you f—ing kidding me?  

How bizarre...

Richard Thompson does new-Emo... I don't think this really works.
This version seems a little rushed...  maybe if they slowed the tempo down a hair it would sound a bit better.

Fun song!  Does she have wings, too?


WOW this is bad!
Great—now I feel old! ;^P
There should be a rating that indicates split personalities and confusion
Play one of the songs from the middle ages...

So Ben Mi Ca Bon Tempo
I really dig covers where artist's make it their own sound. This version works for me!

Sure it did. The songs that don't need covers are the ones that are flawless to begin with. This one sure wasn't.
Love it! Thanks RP and thanks to my daughter I know all the words!

dang!!....2 of my all time favorite songwriters - Hank then Richard - .....maybe not my 2 fav songs by those guys but HEY.....I'm diggin' it!!
He also does a really cool (believe it or not) version of "Hit me Baby one more time" on this record.

He's such a scamp.
What the...

RT...gotta love it.  I saw this tour.  I'm in love with Judith Owen.
Third new song on the trot ...
{#Puke}
Oh my god, this is the best set ever!

Richard Thompson - 1985
Hank Williams - Settin' The Woods On Fire
Queen Ida - Jambalaya

You also haven't lived until you've heard RT cover "Oops, I Did It Again."
OMG
