Lyrics

I took my baby on a Saturday bang
Boy is that girl with you
Yes we’re one and the same

Now I believe in miracles
And a miracle has happened tonight

But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

They print my message in the Saturday Sun
I had to tell them I ain’t second to none

And I told about equality and it’s true
Either you’re wrong or you’re right

But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

I am tired of this devil
I am tired of this stuff
I am tired of this business
Sew when the going gets rough
I ain’t scared of your brother
I ain’ts scared of no sheets
I ain’t scared of nobody
Girl when the goin’ gets mean

Protection
For gangs, clubs, and nations
Causing grief in human relations
It’s a turf war on a global scale
I’d rather hear both sides of the tale
See, it’s not about races
Just places
Faces
Where your blood comes from
Is were your space is
I’ve seen the bright get duller
I’m not going to spend my life being a color

Don’t tell me you agree with me
When I saw you kicking dirt in my eye

But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

I said if you’re thinkin’ of being my baby
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

I said if you’re thinkin’ of being my brother
It don’t matter if you’re black or white

Ooh, ooh
Yea, yea, yea now

Ooh, ooh
Yea, yea, yea now

It’s black, it’s white

It’s tough for them to get by

It’s black, it’s white, (x3) whoo

Lyrics

As he came into the window
It was the sound of a crescendo
He came into her apartment
He left the bloodstains on the carpet
She ran underneath the table
He could see she was unable
So she ran into the bedroom
She was struck down, it was her doom

Annie, are you okay?
So, Annie, are you okay? Are you okay, Annie?
Annie, are you okay?
So, Annie, are you okay? Are you okay, Annie?
Annie, are you okay?
So, Annie, are you okay? Are you okay, Annie?
Annie, are you okay?
So, Annie, are you okay? Are you okay, Annie?

Annie, are you okay?
Will you tell us that you’re okay?
There’s a sound at the window
Then he struck you — a crescendo, Annie
He came into your apartment
Left the bloodstains on the carpet
And then you ran into the bedroom
You were struck down
It was your doom

Annie, are you okay?
So, Annie, are you okay? Are you okay, Annie?
Annie, are you okay?
So, Annie, are you okay? Are you okay, Annie?
Annie, are you okay?
So, Annie, are you okay? Are you okay, Annie?

You’ve been hit by—
You’ve been hit by—
A Smooth Criminal

So they came in to the outway
It was Sunday, what a black day
Every time I tried to find him
There were no clues, they’re behind him
And they end up never knowing
Who’s the suspect or what to expect
Mouth-to-mouth resuscitation
Sounding heartbeats, intimidation

Annie, are you okay?
So, Annie, are you okay? Are you okay, Annie?
Annie, are you okay?
So, Annie, are you okay? Are you okay, Annie?
Annie, are you okay?
Annie, are you okay? Are you okay?
Annie, are you okay?
So, Annie, are you okay? Are you okay, Annie?
Annie, are you okay?
So, Annie, are you okay? Are you okay, Annie?

Annie, are you okay?
Will you tell us that you’re okay?
There’s a sound at the window
Then he struck you — a crescendo, Annie
He came into your apartment
Left the bloodstains on the carpet
And then you ran into the bedroom
You were struck down
It was your doom

Annie, are you okay? Annie, are you okay?
Are you okay, Annie?

You’ve been hit by—
You’ve been struck by—
A Smooth Criminal

Annie are you okay? (I don’t know)
Will you tell us that you’re okay? (I don’t know)
There’s a sound at the window (I don’t know)
Then he struck you, a crescendo Annie? (I don’t know)
He came into your apartment (I don’t know)
Left bloodstains on the carpet (I don’t know why baby)
And then you ran into the bedroom (help me)
You were struck down
It was your doom Annie (dag gone it)
Annie are you okay? (dag gone it-baby)
Will you tell us that you’re okay? (dag gone it-baby)
There’s a sound at the window (dag gone it-baby)
Then he struck you, a crescendo Annie
He came into your apartment, (dag gone it)
Left bloodstains on the carpet
And then you ran into the bedroom
You were struck down (dag gone it)
It was your doom Annie

Lyrics

They told him, "Don’t you ever come around here
Don’t wanna see your face, you better disappear"
The fire’s in their eyes and their words are really clear
So beat it, just beat it
You better run, you better do what you can
Don’t wanna see no blood, don’t be a macho man (Woo!)
You wanna be tough, better do what you can
So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
Just beat it (Beat it)
Just beat it (Beat it)
Just beat it (Beat it)
Just beat it (Beat it, uh)

They’re out to get you, better leave while you can
Don’t wanna be a boy, you wanna be a man
You wanna stay alive, better do what you can
So beat it, just beat it (Woo!)
You have to show them that you’re really not scared (Woo!)
You’re playin’ with your life, this ain’t no truth or dare
(Woo!)
They’ll kick you, then they’ll beat you, then they’ll tell you it’s fair
So beat it, but you wanna be bad

Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
Just beat it, beat it, beat it, beat it
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
Just beat it (Beat it, beat it, beat it)
Beat it (Beat it, beat it, ha, ha, ha, ha)
Beat it (Beat it, beat it)
Beat it (Beat it, beat it)
Beat it (Beat it, beat it)

If you watch the video…it can come off kinda weird. A whole bunch of guys, at night, keep a woman from leaving so another guy can sing to her but then it gets adorable I guess lol one moment she joins a group of girls and they’re laughing over M.J and his gang’s displays of affections. :blush: then the hug at the end sorta insinuates they’re already together and he’s just trying to win her back and or tell her how much she means to him.

Lyrics

Hee-Hee!
Ooh!
G’on girl!
Aaow!
Hee!

Hey pretty baby with the high heels on
You give me fever like I’ve never, ever known
You’re just a product of loveliness
I like the groove of your walk, your talk, your dress

I feel your fever from miles around
I’ll pick you up in my car and we’ll paint the town
Just kiss me baby and tell me twice
That you’re the one for me

The way you make me feel
(The way you make me feel)
You really turn me on
(You really turn me on)
You knock me off of my feet
(You knock me off of my feet)
My lonely days are gone
(My lonely days are gone)

I like the feeling you’re giving me
Just hold me, baby, and I’m in ecstasy
Oh, I’ll be working from 9 to 5
To buy you things to keep you by my side

I’ve never felt so in love before
Just promise baby, you’ll love me forevermore
I swear I’m keeping you satisfied
Cause you’re the one for me

The way you make me feel
(The way you make me feel)
You really turn me on
(You really turn me on)
You knock me off of my feet
(You knock me off of my feet)
My lonely days are gone
(My lonely days are gone)

Acha-ooh!
G’on girl!
G’on!
Hee! Hee! Aaow!
G’on, girl!

I’ve never felt so in love before
Just promise baby, you’ll love me forevermore
I swear I’m keeping you satisfied
Cause you’re the one for me

The way you make me feel
(The way you make me feel)
You really turn me on
(You really turn me on)
You knock me off of my feet
(You knock me off of my feet)
My lonely days are gone
(My lonely days are gone)
The way you make me feel
(The way you make me feel)
You really turn me on
(You really turn me on)
You knock me off of my feet
(You knock me off of my feet)
My lonely days are gone
(My lonely days are gone)

-End-
Ain’t nobody’s business
Ain’t nobody’s business
(The way you make me feel)
Ain’t nobody’s business
Ain’t nobody’s business
But mine and my baby
(You really turn me on)
Hee-hee!
(You knock me off of my feet)
Hee-hee! Ooh!
(My lonely days are gone)
Give it to me
Give me some time
(The way you make me feel)
Come on, be my girl
I wanna be with mine
(You really turn me on)
Ain’t nobody’s business
(You knock me off of my feet)
Ain’t nobody’s business
But mine and my baby
G’on, girl! Aaow!
(My lonely days are gone)

Okay, so I’ve been thinking of Fullmetal Alchemist since I discussed it, so I started it up again because, honestly, it is one of the best animes out there with a thought out “magic” system and plot line. I watched 3 episodes before going to Brotherhood to compare, and

Spoilers discussing more about why I prefer 2003 vs Brotherhood

I just can’t get over the fact that they changed the iconic introduction of Equivalent Exchange for the Brothers. It makes a bigger impact for the audience to see what we’re shown in the 2003 version than the Brotherhood opening of a rather eh battle and a “oh, we’re getting that really cool, powerful dude” and a cheapened explanation of the Law of Equivalent Exchange through a common thug. However, in v2003, you’re immediately brought to the emotional turmoil of the brothers in the 2003 version and immediately brought to understand the dangers of alchemy and Equivalent Exchange, so getting to know why they did it, how they messed up and the Laws is vastly more interesting.

Also, they just way overused the height joke in too short of a time. :sweat: however, v2003 ending = depressing and unfinished product that leaves the viewer unsatisfied. Brotherhood ending = good.

Also, I decided to maybe…maybe…give Vinland anime a try, after Fullmetal Alchemist. Because by the end of the day, I just love Vikings/Scandinavians too much. :joy:

Before:

We just watched Chrysalis and Revelations last night. :star_struck:

And after:


#1148

Ah yes, thine namesake. Part Human, part Membari. Loved Babylon 5 before it went so very space soap opera.


#1149
  • Zero no Tsukaima

decided to dig into this as it was on the list anyway, but man, it’s such a shame it’s held back by such awful writing and plot, instead of just focusing on the cute comedy character interaction instead.
i get the feel this would have been much better of as either a slice of life style, or more heavy on the rom com harry potterness, instead of trying to go all “serious” isekai. :confused:
Well, maybe the other seasons progress a bit better :crossed_fingers:


#1150

It was 10 years since I saw Zero no Tsukaima now and while I enjoyed it enough to watch the whole 4 seasons it wasn’t top tier stuff even back then. It does lean more into the romcom stuff going forward as far as I recall.

It’s interesting thinking back on it though, at the time isekai wasn’t really a genre of it’s own yet. Wouldn’t want to say it’s the first but it might have been a little ahead of it’s time in that regard.

I just finished「Happy Sugar Life」yesterday. There’s two things the Japanese do rather well, cutesy stuff and the aberrant. So when they strive to combine these two qualities you often times get something quite impactful. Unfortunately this time it fell a little short for me. Every single character in this series is just horribly broken and I feel like what could have been an intriguing story gets a little off track by reveling in the utter madness of it’s characters instead.


#1151

Starting my monday with this.


#1152

Oh my god! I just found out Veronica Mars has a new season! On Hulu! I have to watch it! I loved the original show to death! :blush: :blush:

Well yea, the plot is pretty weak. You’re supposed to be in it for the comedy and I guess the romance. :joy: the fun thing I always thought about the series, even though it wasn’t Hunter x Hunter quality or something, is that it was just fun. It didn’t have to be amazing to have “flavor”, because despite it it still had its charms. The comedy, the interactions between the two main characters and maybe not to others, but I enjoyed the art as it went on.

They do…and they don’t, in a way. I won’t spoil it for you, but I honestly think the show is worth watching. I personally have seen it about 3 times. :sweat_smile:


#1153

It’s just straight up garbage all the way through. It’s a shame since it’s my favorite VA, Kugimiya Rie. Unfortunately she haven’t had many good roles.
She also does the voice for Alphonse in FMA btw.


#1154

So far, Veronica Mars still feels mostly the same. That’s a huge surprise given that most shows that return after a long hiatus usually change so drastically that they do not even feel like the same show anymore.

Straight up fighting words, I swear. :weary:


#1155

Heh if you enjoyed it then good for you, everyone has different tastes. :wink: I was just extremely disappointed back when I saw it mostly because I watched it right after Toradora. It’s my favorite anime of all time so obviously I looked for more like it… Louise may look and sound like Taiga but she’s nothing like her.


#1156

I can’t believe this! DAMN YOU VERONICA MARS! DAMN YOU!!! :cry: :sob:

EXTREME spoilers

SPOILERS

Summary

They KILLED him!

They killed Logan, right after they got married, in the last episode, and so cheap-ish! I could get wanting to write his death in, but in THAT way? UGH!


#1157

Am watching TV at a hotel and I really forgot how much I loathe ads.

I mean loathe ads.


#1158

made it to episode 8 so far, and this is just hilarious, i love the humour in it
and the recent double sided episodes, where it’s half rib tickles and the other half has been onion cutting, was just a brilliant roller coaster swap with the different chars
really enjoyable show all around, not a single bad episode for me yet :+1:


#1159

Okay, even after all these years, I’m still very much in love with Majora’s Mask’s mystical music. Particularly Stone Temple. It still sends weird chills through me.

Koji Kondo is a genius, and he made such amazing, unforgettable songs on systems that restricted his ability so thoroughly. That’s how you can tell a great composer apart from the rest.

Crap. I did it. Now I want to play Majora’s Mask!


#1160

Want to hold my hand while you do? That game’s moon is the scariest thing! I couldn’t figure out how to beat the game either? Did you ever manage?


#1161

Found someone’s rendition of Stone Temple today. It is pretty good, too! :slight_smile:

I’ve been playing it and Ocarina of Time (and many other titles in the series) since I was a child. I live and breathe The Legend of Zelda. haha so yep, I know how to beat the game. :blush:

(the game also freaked me out as a kid whenever the moon got close :sweat_smile: )


#1162

I was so proud when I finished that! ^^ Found all the skultulas too. Not sure if all the heart pieces though. Ah the sound of the skull tarantulas in hard to reach places. :smile:

high fives It’s my favourite game series. Pity you can’t play all the games on one console, heh. Breath of Wild seems a little odd, but Twilight Princess, man would love to play that one. So very pretty and you swim like a lifeguard! I want to swim like that when I learn how. ^^


#1163

I need to go back and actually beat OoT. And Majora’s Mask. Both of which I have on 3DS.

I also have Twilight Princess and maybe Wind Waker for GameCube… But no system to play it on (got the controllers though)


#1164

The Game Cube was the funniest thing when I first saw one, ha ha. Mega cute console though. Majora’s Mask though - felt like I never made any progress before the rewind.
