Last night, in preparation to watch this week’s episode of Glee, Junkii and I watched The Rocky Horror Picture Show. We had both seen it before, but neither of us really remembered much of it, so we thought a refresher was in order.
What a terrible movie. I know I know – it’s not meant to be watched alone. And Yeah, I can see why it’s so popular with the cult showings. It would definitely be fun to make fun of. (We should really go to a screening at the Mayfair Theatre one of these years). But to watch it on your own, well, it’s pretty dismal. A few good songs, but little else to recommend it.
Then on my way to work today, I listened to a “Who Did it Better” version of the Coverville podcast – a show that pits two covers against one another and asks listeners to vote for their favorite. Well, didn’t they decide to dedicate this week’s episode to RHPS – specifically the first song from the movie: Science Fiction Double Feature.
So that’s what’s in my head today. Not the best song from the show, but not bad.
