Tune in Tuesday Week 6 - Soundtrack Edition: Rocky Horror Picture Show

Tune in Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by Ginger at GReads that showcases music.  Music for me is right up there with reading and writing, so even though this particular meme isn't about reading and writing, I thought it would be a fun one to participate in. If you're interested in participating, be sure to check out Ginger's blog so you can spread your love of music!

Well, this is the last week of Soundtrack Edition (I think), and since it's the week before Halloween, I picked a movie that I think is fitting. Unlike many people, I didn't see Rocky Horror Picture Show until I was about 19 or 20. I was in college and it was one of my college best friend's (I'll just call her M) favorite movies. One night, a few of us (including my other college bff - R) were doing this big group project and we were so stressed we were all about to lose it, so M put on Rocky Horror, fast-forwarded it to Time Warp, and we all danced around like lunatics. It was awesome, and one of my favorite memories ever. You might not believe this, but in real life, I'm painfully shy, and I don't normally dance like a maniac except in the privacy of my own bedroom lol. 

R and me that Halloween...yes, my hair used to be blond
Anyway, that same year at Halloween, R and I went to a Halloween party at a club and we were on the dance floor when Time Warp came on...so we danced...like lunatics...with everyone watching us and laughing (with, not at us), and then they all joined in. So that song, as random as it is, has a very special place in my heart, as does the movie, because I hardly ever speak to M and R anymore. It's one of those bittersweet memories - it makes me happy and sad at the same time to think about it, because we had so much fun together, and we were so close, but they moved away and left me behind in more ways than one. You expect that from high school, but not so much college, you know? Anyway, I'm getting WAY off track, sorry! 

Who wants to do the Time Warp with me??
It's just a jump to the left
And then a step to the right
Put your hands on your hips
You bring your knees in tight
But it's the pelvic thrust
That really drives you insane
Let's do the time warp again
Let's do the time warp again

I love this song, too. I've loved Tim Curry since I was a little girl when I first saw him as Rooster in Annie.  This is...um...just a lil different than Annie though lol 

Weekly U2 Lyric:
"October, and the trees are stripped bare of all they wear
What do I care?
October, and kingdoms rise, and kingdoms fall
But you go on and on"
~October by U2 from the album October~



  1. LOL-this is what I have also chosen..it is a tradition in my family to watch it every Halloween

  2. Oh, excellent choice! I love the movie, but that song in particular is classic! (and I always love a man in drag)

  3. I totally forgot about this movie- great choice! Now I am going to have The Time Warp in my head all day!
