So back in 1984 one of my favorite albums was Ratt’s Out of the Cellar. Pretty strong album from start to finish, but I really liked (and have continued to like) Round and Round. I can’t begin to guess how many times I’ve heard the song, but if I conservatively estimate 50 times a year that’s 1600 listens. It’s probably more than twice that, but whatever. Regardless, it’s one of my all time favorite 80′s hair songs.

So this WHOLE time I’ve thought the lyrics were, “Tied to our belts a piece of silk. Get in our way, we’ll put you on your shelf.” I never questioned it – just assumed it was some sort of street gang reference in that they wore some silk color on their belts to look tough. Today, when it came on during my mix, I wondered why they rhymed “silk” with “shelf” and looked up the lyrics…. and I find out the actual lyrics are “Tightened our belts, abused ourselves.” My world has been turned upside down.

Add that to the fact that I just looked up the “hott” chick from the Nutrisystem TV ad only to find out it was Marie Osmond, I don’t know who I am anymore…

LOL Too funny! I used to watch the Donny and Marie show. I know I liked her in the 70′s.

I can’t say I’ve ever jerked off while fantasizing about Marie Osmond … but she is a nice looking older woman (might be a different story if I ever saw her naked though…).

Ha! Those literal videos are pretty great. I’ve never seen that one before and it’s another 80s favorite of mine.

I watched Donny and Marie, too, as a kid. She looks much better now than she did then, but still. Marie Osmond?!

Marilyn Monroe said diamonds are a girl’s best friend. I disagree – clothes are a girl’s best friend. Right up there with makeup.

I’ll bet if you could compare a naked 18 year old Marie with a naked 56 year old Marie – you’d be singin’ a different tune!

I thought pearls were a girls best friend! Necklaces that is!

Well, the important thing we take from this thread is that Ratt was tightening their belts and abusing themselves, not tying a piece of silk to their belts. The rest is just gravy.

A mystery.
A riddle.
An enigma.
The question…, more profound than any pontificating a mere mortal man can muster when contemplating the epic battle between one our greatest heros and one of our greatest villains.
The answer…, discovering and unlocking the eternal secret to immortality and of life itself.
Dave or Sammy?
No.

For me it’s Mary-Ann for sure. However, after a few years on the island, I would make the late night creep into Lovie Howel’s hut if need be. Man can’t live on bread alone! :)

Just imagine if either Mary-Ann or Ginger had a nice juicy set of C cup boobies?

There’s an interesting poetic symmetry to this conversation … the song “Round And Round,” and discussions about tits & ass … both of which are generally round.
