THE WAY I RUN MY BLOG:

Years ago I worked at a porn shop. I dealt with every kind of kinky sexual perv imaginable in real life face to face. Dealing with those kind of people here is Child’s Play to handling them in real world. The only people that can relate are ones that have work in some type of adult entertainment that deals with the general public. In every sexual preferences male or female young or old, you have one smart ass in the bunch.

Here you can just block and be done with it. It’s like swatting a gnat. Dealing with them in the real world is a whole different experience. When they walk in that door and you don’t know them you never know what to expect. They can end up being one of your best customers or one that finally hits a nerve, and you finally tell them to GET THE FUCK OUT! I didn’t care I was always ready if it got confrontational when someone didn’t know how to behave or pestering other customers.

If you’re worthy of respect you’ll get my undivided attention with that respect. If I don’t see you that way I’m not going to waste my time with you. If I like you I’ll tell you and why either in the reply back or by personal email.

Even though this isn’t a porn shop my blog is my Personal Porn World. I take care of my world the way I please. As long as I’m not breaking any rules set by Fuckspace I’ll Keep On Truckin’ just like I have been. If I do break a rule they’ll deal with me. I don’t mean any disrespect, I’m just being upfront about everything.

THOUGHTS-VENTURES-TUNES-SEX was a way of life at that porn shop. It’s my way of life for my online enjoyment.

If I debate politics I do in real life with someone. If I make a political posting it will be a read only. Why? We don’t know each other well enough to get into those type of specific issues. We share more common interest in better things than a political debate online. My political postings are more intended for the open general public. Anything else I don’t mind you sharing your opinion. Positive or Negative as long as they’re constructive and friendly. If you’re Cool with that I know I am. My time here is for sharing common interests with other members. Peace and Love, Michael

HEAT OF THE MOMENT

Asia is the self-titled debut studio album by English rock band Asia, released in 1982. According to both Billboard and Cashbox, it was the #1 album in the United States for the year 1982. It contains their biggest hit "Heat of the Moment", which reached #4 in the US on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Alpha is the second studio album by British rock band Asia, released on 26 July 1983 in the United States and on 12 August 1983 in the United Kingdom by Geffen Records. Recorded at Le Studio in Morin-Heights, Quebec, and Manta Sound in Toronto from February to May 1983, the album was produced, like its multi-platinum predecessor, by Mike Stone.

Guitarist Steve Howe left the band in 1984. Thus, Alpha was the last album to feature the band's original line-up until Phoenix which was released in 2008. The original line-up re-formed two years earlier in 2006.

The cover artwork was designed by Roger Dean, known for his work with Yes, which Howe and keyboard player Geoff Downeshad previously been members of.

Alpha has been re-issued numerous times, especially in Japan. Platinum SHM-CD with a DSD flat transfer from original master tapes was released by Universal Music in 2014 and included "Daylight" and "Lying to Yourself" as bonus tracks. In 2017, the album was released on Audio Fidelity hybrid SACD remastered by Kevin Gray.

HEAT OF THE MOMENT
I never meant to be so bad to you
One thing I said that I would never do
A look from you and I would fall from grace
And that would wipe the smile right from my face

Do you remember when we used to dance
And incidents arose from circumstance?
One thing led to another, we were young
And we would scream together songs unsung

It was the heat of the moment
Telling me what my heart meant
The heat of the moment shone in your eyes

And now you find yourself in '82
The disco hot-spots hold no charm for you
You can't concern yourself with bigger things
You catch the pearl and ride the dragon's wings

'Cause it's the heat of the moment
The heat of the moment
The heat of the moment shone in your eyes

And when your looks are gone and you're alone
How many nights you sit beside the phone?
What were the things you wanted for yourself?
Teenage ambition you remember well

It was the heat of the moment
Telling you what your heart meant
The heat of the moment shone in your eyes

It was the heat of the moment
Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment shone in your eyes

Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment

Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment
Heat of the moment

DON’T CRY
Hard times you had before you
I knew when I first saw you
You girl you've always been mistreated, cheated

So leave it all behind you
It took so long to find you
I know that we can last forever, ever and more, more, oh

Don't Cry now that I've found you
Don't Cry take a look around you
Don't Cry it took so long to find you
Do what you want, but little darling please Don't Cry

I knew I'd never doubt it
I was so sure about it
Don't think of all that's been before

I'll hear you when you're calling
I'll catch you when you're falling
Don't worry I will always be there, like never before, or, oh

HEAT OF THE MOMENT and DON’T CRY By Asia

THE CLIQUE

The Clique was a late 1960s American sunshine pop band from Houston, Texas. They started as the Roustabouts in the Beaumont, Texas area, 90 miles east of Houston, and later the Sandpipers before renaming themselves the Clique in 1967 and settling in Houston. Original members of the band were John Kanesaw (drums), Bruce Tinch (bass guitar), Cooper Hawthorne (lead guitar), Larry Lawson (vocals and keyboards), David Dunham (vocals and horns), and Randy Shaw (vocals and horns).

Their first hit was a cover of the 13th Floor Elevators' "Splash 1," on Cinema Records, produced by Walt Andrus. The song was No. 1 in Houston for several weeks.

The Clique were signed to Scepter Records, New York, for two years following their hit "Splash 1". During this period, Cooper Hawthorne and Larry Lawson left the group and were replaced by Bill Black (guitar and backing vocals) and Sid Templeton (keys, guitar and backing vocals). John Kanesaw, Bruce Tinch, and Bill Black left thereafter and were replaced by Jerry Cope (drums), Tom Pena (bass), and Oscar Houchins (keys and backing vocals).

The group drew attention from the West Coast. They consisted of Tom Pena (bass), Sid Templeton (guitar and backing vocals), Jerry Cope (drums), and Oscar Houchins (keys and backing vocals). David Dunham (sax and backing vocals) and lead singer Randy Shaw were the only two original members at the time the group signed with White Whale Records (label mates with the Turtles). The group became centered on record producer/songwriter Gary Zekley.

Their self-titled album, The Clique (1969), released by White Whale Records, featured the singles "I'll Hold Out My Hand" and "Sugar on Sunday," which reached No. 45 in the US on December 13, 1969 and No. 22 in the US on October 18, 1969 Billboard Hot 100 chart, respectively. "Sugar on Sunday" was a cover of a Tommy James song and its B-Side, "Superman", was covered by R.E.M. on their 1986 album Lifes Rich Pageant.

The Clique reached #177 on the Billboard Hot 200 album chart. A 1970 single, "Sparkle and Shine", reached No. 100; this song is included, along with six other added songs, on the 1998 Varèse Sarabande re-release of The Clique.

The Clique performed on several national television shows including John Byner's "Something Else" and "The Dating Game." The group toured nationally appearing with popular acts of the day, including Tommy James and The Shondells, Grand Funk Railroad, Brooklyn Bridge, and The Dave Clark Five.
The Gulf Coast Music Hall of Fame inducted the band in 2008, prompting a brief reunion.

Dumb Waiters is the second studio album by English pop band The Korgis. It was released on Rialto Records in the UK in 1980.

The album includes the singles "Everybody's Got to Learn Sometime", UK #5, U.S. #18, Australia #18; "If It's Alright With You Baby" UK #56; "Dumb Waiters" and "Rover's Return".

Dumb Waiters was re-issued on CD by Edsel Records in 1999 but is currently out of print.

The Korgis are a British pop band known mainly for their hit single "Everybody's Got to Learn Sometime" in 1980. The band was originally composed of singer/guitarist/keyboardist Andy Davis (born Andrew Cresswell-Davis 10 August 1949) and singer/bassist James Warren (born 25 August 1951), both former members of 1970s band Stackridge, along with violinist Stuart Gordon and keyboardist Phil Harrison.

The Korgis released their first single "Young 'n' Russian" in early March 1979 on the label Rialto Records, owned by their managers Nick Heath and Tim Heath. Joined briefly by drummer Bill Birks; their next single "If I Had You," was released soon after and moved up to Number 13 on the UK Singles Chart, prompting the release of an eponymous debut album, The Korgis, in July 1979.
The follow up singles a re-release of “Young ‘n’ Russian” and “I Just Can’t Help It” failed to chart.

However the next single, from their second album Dumb Waiters (1980) was "Everybody's Got to Learn Sometime" (1980), a hit in three countries, peaking at Number 5 in the UK, 18 in the US and 11 in Australia.

The album reached Number 40 in the UK in 1980 and was followed by the singles "If It's Alright With You Baby" and "Rovers Return". The commercial breakthrough that accompanied the release of their second album and the resulting singles was not enough to keep them together, however, and Davis departed the band prior to the recording of their third album, Sticky George, despite having a number of songwriting credits on the album. The lead single from Sticky George, "That Was My Big Mistake", was released under the name 'James Warren & The Korgis' to denote the fact that Davis and Warren had now gone their separate ways.

By the end of 1980 Gordon and Harrison had also departed the band; subsequently the band was augmented by the arrival of guitarist John Baker, drummer Roy Dodds, and keyboardist Maggie Stewart. This line-up went on to promote "Everybody's got to learn" and subsequent singles on European TV and promotional appearances.

The following year the band was joining by flautist Steve Buck; and was contemplating a Korgis Live show that ultimately failed to materialise; leading the band to dissolve and Warren to go solo in 1982. The single "Don't Look Back", originally a demo from the Sticky George sessions, was however remixed by Trevor Horn, at the time best known for his work with The Buggles, Dollar and Yes, and issued by London Records in the summer of 1982. A follow-up single with Horn, "Endangered Species", was planned but never materialised.
Warren would go on to issue a solo LP entitled Burning Questions in 1986.

Some of the singles during this era were released as 'The Korgis' (essentially a one-man band consisting solely of Warren during this period) and co-produced by Andy Davis.

The band reunited in 1990 to re-record "Everybody's Got to Learn Sometime". The re-formed group, consisting of Warren, Davis, and Baker, released the album This World's For Everyone in 1992, having some success in Continental Europe and Japan, before breaking up again in 1993.

1999 saw the three original Korgis albums being re-issued by Edsel Records, followed by the two disc anthology Don't Look Back – The Very Best of The Korgis in 2003, issued by Sanctuary Records/Castle Communications.
In 2005 Warren, Davis, and Baker reunited again for a film shoot for DVD/compilation album Kollection and recorded the fourteen-track album Unplugged, which was released on the Angel Air record label the following year.

In 2006 the Korgis released their first single in thirteen years, "Something About The Beatles", which can be heard on Myspace. This song belatedly acknowledges the influences of John Lennon in particular, which was very strong on "If I Had You" and "Everybody's Got To Learn Sometime" which capture the ethereal sounds of Lennon's early 1970s output. The band acknowledged John Lennon's influence in interviews at the time, shortly before his murder.

Former member Stuart Gordon, died on 28 August 2014 from lung cancer. He was 63.

Baker departed the band in 2014, and when Stackridge took a break from touring later that year; Warren and Davis organised a tour of the UK in 2015 under the name of The Korgis and using exactly the same 5-piece line-up as Stackridge. The re-formed Stackridge usually include some Korgis songs in their live set; and vice versa.

Stone Jam is the fifth album by the American funk band Slave. It was released in 1980 on Cotillion Records and reissued in 1997 on Rhino Records. It was produced by Jimmy Douglass and Steve Washington. The album was listed on the Billboard 200, Billboard's 1981 Year-End Chart and was certified Gold by the RIAA. It contains the hit singles "Sizzlin' Hot", "Feel My Love", and "Watching You".

Slave's fifth album, Stone Jam, was their highest charting since their first, Slave, and their second to be certified Gold, Slave received the certification in 1977. The band's drummer, Steve Arrington, took on more singing responsibilities than on previous albums and this, combined with the vocals of Starleana Young, contributed to the album's success. The single "Watching You" entered the Billboard Hot 100 and also joined "Sizzlin' Hot" and "Feel My Love" on the R&B Singles Chart.

Alex Henderson of Allmusic breaks Slave's brand of funk into two categories; 'hardcore' and 'sophisticated'. He notes that their earlier work falls into the former category but, with the exception of the tracks "Stone Jam" and "Sizzlin' Hot", this album is in the later. He goes on to write that this "sleeker" approach is "every bit as appealing" as their earlier more aggressive work. He describes the tracks "Dreamin'", "Feel My Love" and "Let's Spend Some Time" as "addictive jams" and the album as "consistently melodic".

Jam-Master Jay of Run–D.M.C. has named it as one of his favorite albums. The album made the Billboard 1981 Year-End Pop Chart at number 99 and the Soul Chart at number 7.

The song "Watching You" was interpolated twice by rapper Snoop Dogg, first in the chorus of "Gin and Juice" in 1993, then in "Let's Get Blown" in 2004.

"More, More, More" is a song written by Gregg Diamond and recorded by American disco artist Andrea True, who performed as part of her "Andrea True Connection" project. It was released in February 1976 and became her signature track and one of the most popular songs of the disco era. In the U.S., it reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and spent three weeks at number three on the Cashbox chart in July of that year. In Canada, it was a number-one hit.

The song was originally recorded in Jamaica where True, a porn star, had been appearing in a television commercial. An attempted coup prevented her from leaving the country with her wages from the commercial. Resourcefully, True called on Gregg Diamond to come down to Jamaica to write and record the song with her, along with other studio musicians which formed the backbone of the "Connection" project.

Buddah Records originally released the song only to discos in the winter of 1975/1976. The popularity of "More, More, More" was immense. Widespread listener interest convinced Buddah to release the single commercially in the spring. The song rose to number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and number twenty three on the soul singles chart. The single was a successful disco hit peaking at number two. Overseas, the song peaked at number five on the UK Singles Chart.

The song has been covered a number of times since by artists including Samantha Fox, Bananarama, Rachel Stevens, Dannii Minogue, and Dagny. In 1999, Canadian band Len sampled the instrumental break in "More, More, More" and used it as the backdrop for their top-ten single "Steal My Sunshine".

"N.Y., You Got Me Dancing" is a song written and produced by Gregg Diamond and performed by the Andrea True Connection. The song reached #4 on the U.S. club chart, #27 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #89 in Canada in 1977. The song appeared on her 1977 album, White Witch.

Andrea Marie Truden (July 26, 1943 – November 7, 2011), better known by her pseudonym Andrea True, was an American pornographic actress and singer from the disco era. In addition to her given name, she had multiple stage names, including Inger Kissin, Singe Low, Sandra Lips, Andrea Travis, and Catherine Warren.

As a singer, she is best known for the 1976 pop-disco hit "More, More, More" (performed as part of her recording project, The Andrea True Connection), which peaked at No. 4 on the US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 5 on the UK Singles Chart.

Andrea Marie Truden was born in Nashville, Tennessee, where she attended St. Cecilia Academy, a Catholic school for girls.

True moved to New York City as a teenager, to seek fame as a mainstream film star or singer. While she sang in clubs and managed to get minor roles in mainstream movies from time to time, including The Way We Were (1973), the fame she sought was elusive. When some friends asked her to join them in a pornographic movie, she went along with the idea, initially thinking of this opportunity as the best way for her to gain more experience with films and acting.

She performed in pornographic films in Scandinavia in the 1960s, and by the end of the decade, began appearing in American adult films. Eventually, she performed in more than fifty hardcore porn films throughout the 1970s and early to mid-1980s in the early New York adult film industry. In an interview in 1977, she described her activity in adult films as being important because "our first amendment was in great danger because of censorship from our government." She also said "I think it [pornography] was a fad".

During her heyday as a porn actress, around 1975, True was hired by a real estate business in Jamaica to appear in their commercials. While she was working there, the Jamaican government banned asset transfers in response to sanctions imposed by the U.S. after the election of Michael Manley, a supporter of Fidel Castro. In order to return to the U.S., True would have to either forfeit her pay or spend the money before she went home.

True, who by this time was trying to break into the music industry, chose to invest the money in recording a demo of "More, More, More," a song she had been working on with record producer Gregg Diamond, her partner in a project called The Andrea True Connection. Remixed by recording engineer Tom Moulton, "More, More, More" became a favorite in nightclubs. It reached No. 4 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and a full album with the same title followed. The single also reached the charts in the UK (where it peaked at No. 5, Germany where it reached No. 9 and Italy (where it reached No. 11

By the time of her singing career, True admitted she was burned out and tired of porn, saying, "I'd rather be a waitress or a typist than make another adult film", and also, "Don't think of me as a porn star anymore, think of me as a recording star. I just want to record and perform". In early 1977, True released the single "N.Y., You Got Me Dancing", from her follow-up album, White Witch.
The single became True's second biggest hit, reaching No. 27 on Billboard's pop chart. In 1978, she had a second hit in the UK with "What's Your Name, What's Your Number", which peaked at No. 34 in the UK.

Both albums included studio musicians with a new band assembled for the tour, the second line-up, which included future Kiss guitarist Bruce Kulick. In 1980, she released her third and final album, War Machine. A more hard rock-oriented album, it was released only in Europe, but it flopped.

After her third album failed, True briefly attempted returning to porn, but at nearly 40, she was too old for a comeback. She also could not return to music because a goiter that developed on her vocal cords required surgery, essentially ending her singing ability. She lived in Los Angeles for some time and subsequently moved to New York.

During the early 1990s, Andrea lived in an apartment on Manhattan's east side. By the turn of the century she had begun a new low-profile career, living in Boynton Beach, Florida working as a psychic reader as well as a counselor for drug and substance abusers.

True continued receiving royalties from her music, and "More More More" remained a popular song on TV and movies. True received a renewed burst of publicity when the Canadian group Len sampled the instrumental break from "More, More, More" in their single, "Steal My Sunshine". Subsequently, True appeared on several VH1 specials including 100 Greatest Dance Songs in 2000 ("More, More, More" was the No. 45 greatest dance song), Where Are They Now and 100 Greatest One-hit Wonders (both in 2002), in which she said she wanted to be remembered as a person who "gave people pleasure" — then emphasized the words — "with my music".

She also made an appearance in the 2005 documentary movie Inside Deep Throat.

True died on November 7, 2011, at a hospital in Kingston, New York. She was 68 years old. The cause was given as heart failure. In line with her wishes, True's body was cremated.

NO PARKING BABY!

NO PARKING ON THE DANCE FLOOR!

No Parking on the Dance Floor is a 1983 album by American vocal band Midnight Star. This is the fourth and most successful album by the band. Released on June 6, 1983, the album contains the singles "Freak-A-Zoid", "Wet My Whistle", "Electricity" and "No Parking (On the Dance Floor)", as well as the seminal quiet storm anthem, "Slow Jam".

Midnight Star is an American group that had a string of hits in the 1980s.

The group was formed in 1976 at Kentucky State University by trumpeter Reggie Calloway, vocalist Belinda Lipscomb, guitarist/drummer/vocalist Melvin Gentry, bassist Kenneth Gant, multi-instrumentalist Bill Simmons, keyboard player/vocalist Bo Watson and guitarist/keyboardist Jeff Cooper, as a self-contained group.

They later added non-KSU student trombonist Vincent Calloway (Reginald's younger brother). A 1978 New York City showcase inspired SOLAR Records chief Dick Griffey to sign the group. They released their debut album The Beginning (1980) with some guest studio musicians. In 1981 their second album, released on Solar Records, Standing Together, reached position #54 on the U.S. R&B chart. In 1982 they released a third album, Victory.

Using elected band leader Reggie Calloway's production skills, Midnight Star hit the U.S. R&B chart with early singles "Hot Spot" and "I've Been Watching You". Drummer Bobby Lovelace joined the group in late 1982, freeing Gentry to sing and play guitar exclusively.

Their fourth album, No Parking on the Dance Floor, was released in 1983, and its first single, "Freak-A-Zoid", went to number two on the U.S. Black Singles chart. Other singles from the album included "Wet My Whistle", and the title track. These singles, along with the hit album tracks "Slow Jam" (co-written by Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds) and "Electricity" led the album to double platinum status.

Their next album, Planetary Invasion also went platinum and made the pop Top 20 and the number one spot on the R&B chart with its first single, "Operator". This song remains the band's only Billboard Hot 100 Top 40 hit to date.

In 1985, Kool & the Gang, Midnight Star, Shalamar and Klymaxx performed at the Marriott Convention Center in Oklahoma City. The band continued on to concerts in San Antonio and Little Rock. Then in 1986 the band released their sixth album, Headlines, which was their third album to sell at least gold. It was to be their last with the Calloway brothers.

Due to irreconcilable differences with the other members, Reggie was out of the group and Vincent left shortly thereafter. They achieved their biggest success in the UK with "Midas Touch", which made #8, and "Headlines", a #16 hit earlier the same year. Without the Calloways (who formed the group Calloway and release an album that spawned the 1990 hit single "I Wanna Be Rich"), Midnight Star recorded two more albums, the self-titled Midnight Star and Work It Out.

These two albums proved not as successful as their previous three releases, but the singles "Don't Rock the Boat" and "Snake in the Grass" did reach the top ten on the R&B singles chart. The group went on a long hiatus, though they never officially broke up.

The group reunited in 2000 with many of the original members (including all of the singers) and released the album 15th Avenue two years later. Since then, the group has toured sporadically, most recently with a lineup that includes Belinda Lipscomb, Kenneth Gant, Melvin Gentry, Bo Watson, and Bobby Lovelace, with Bill Simmons sometimes joining as well.

We're an American Band is the seventh studio album by American hard rock band Grand Funk Railroad, credited as Grand Funk. The album was released by Capitol Records on July 15, 1973 (see 1973 in music) and was certified gold by the RIAA a little over a month after its release. Two singles were released from the album.

The first single, "We're an American Band", was released on July 2, 1973 and the second, "Walk Like a Man", was released on October 29, 1973. Both singles were sung by drummer Don Brewer. There is an addition to the band on this release - Craig Frost - who plays the organ, clavinet and Moog. Craig was credited as an additional musician on "Phoenix" which was released the previous year.

The album cover was originally covered in gold-colored foil on the outside, and the initial run of pressings were pressed in clear, dark yellow vinyl. The album has been reissued many times and is currently available in the Compact Disc format. A Quadraphonic mix of the album was available in the Quadraphonic 8-Track cartridge format.

The album is #200 of the National Association of Recording Merchandisers (NARM) Definitive 200 albums of all time.

We're an American Band was the group's first collaboration with producer/engineer Todd Rundgren. Rundgren and the band recorded the album at Criteria Studios in Miami, Florida on June 13–15, 1973. Rundgren would go on to produce the band's next album, Shinin' On (1974), before the band switched to Jimmy Lenner.

The album's original issue, as well as of the "We're an American Band" single, was on translucent yellow vinyl, symbolic of a 'Gold record'. The album labels, above the side numbers, instructed listeners to play "at full volume".

It included four stickers (two blue, and two red) with the Grand Funk "Pointing Finger" logo. Emphasizing the shortening of the group's name, the word "Railroad" does not appear anywhere on the album sleeve, liner, or vinyl record, except as the title of the first song on side two of the album.

"Lovergirl" is the first single from Teena Marie's 1984 album, Starchild. The song was Marie's first hit song under her new label, Epic Records, after a lawsuit with Motown. The song also became Marie's biggest hit, peaking at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. She wrote and produced the song.

Mary Christine Brockert (March 5, 1956 – December 26, 2010), better known by her stage name Teena Marie, was an American singer-songwriter, and producer. She was known by her childhood nickname Tina before taking the stage name Teena Marie and later acquired the nickname Lady Tee (sometimes spelled Lady T), given to her by her collaborator and friend, Rick James.

She was known for her distinctive soulful vocals, which caused many listeners to believe she was black. Her success in R&B and soul music, and loyalty to these genres would earn her the title Ivory Queen of Soul. She played rhythm guitar, keyboards, and congas, and wrote, produced, sang, and arranged virtually all of her songs since her 1980 release, Irons in the Fire, which she later said was her favorite album.

Starchild is the sixth album by Teena Marie, released in 1984. Following the relative commercial failure of her previous album, Robbery, Starchild became the highest-selling album of Marie's career. It peaked at #9 on the US Black Albums chart and #31 on the Billboard Albums chart. Lead single "Lovergirl" became a major hit, reaching #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 (Marie's only top 30 hit on that chart). The track "My Dear Mr. Gaye" is a tribute to Marvin Gaye, who had been fatally shot and killed by his father on April 1, 1984. It was re-released by SoulMusic Records in 2012 as an Expanded Edition, containing 5 mixes as bonus tracks.

"Life Is a Rock (But the Radio Rolled Me)" is a 1974 song by an ad hoc group of studio musicians called Reunion, with Joey Levine (bubblegum music pioneer with "Chewy Chewy" and "Yummy Yummy Yummy" to his credit) as the lead singer. The song was written by Paul DiFranco (music) and Norman Dolph (lyrics). The lyrics are a fast patter of 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s disc jockeys, musicians, songwriters, record labels, song titles and lyrics, broken only by the chorus.

Given the various musical icons on the laundry list, the Jack the Ripper mention may be a reference to Link Wray's 1961 instrumental called "Jack the Ripper", or Screaming Lord Sutch, who released at least 2 albums with a Jack the Ripper theme, and a 1963 cover of the 1961 single of the same name by Clarence Stacy.

The song's outro quotes "Baby I Need Your Loving" by The Four Tops, "Celebrate" by Three Dog Night, "I Want to Take You Higher" by Sly and the Family Stone, and "Uptight (Everything's Alright)" by Stevie Wonder.
It peaked at No. 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and reached No. 33 in the UK Singles Chart. The track was later covered by Tracey Ullman in 1983, and was featured in her 1984 album, You Broke My Heart in 17 Places.
