"My oh my...my oh my..."

*GASP* Oh my poor Sue Sue!! You don't know the song from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show"??? It's near the beginning after Brad and Janet have the flat and walk through the rain to find someplace with a phone. They saw lights a ways back and figure there must be someone there that can help them. They walk up to the castle singing as the song plays:

"Over At The Frankenstein Place"

In the velvet darkness of the blackest night
Burning bright, there's a guiding star
No matter what or who you are.

There's a light over at the Frankenstein Place
There's a light burning in the fireplace
There's a light, light in the darkness of everybody's life.

I can see the flag fly, I can see the rain
Just the same, there has got to be
Something better here for you and me.

There's a light over at the Frankenstein Place
There's a light burning in the fireplace
There's a light, light in the darkness of everybody's life.

The darkness must go down the river of nights dreaming
Flow morphia slow, let the sun and light come streaming
Into my life, into my life.

There's a light over at the Frankenstein Place
There's a light burning in the fireplace
There's a light, light in the darkness of everybody's life.


At the end of the song the motorcycles roar past, Brad and Janet jump out of the way and knock on the door to be greeted by....dnh dnh dnh....Riff Raff!!!! *LOL* Honestly this movie is worth watching for the pure camp of it if nothing else. And in my opinion....Tim Curry made one HOT transvestite! "I'm just a sweet transvestite....from Transexual, Transylvania...." *G* Of course, my favorite song is "Time Warp" and I would love to play Magenta!

I must say though, I absolutely love the one you recommended, "There's a lighthouse on the hillside, that overlooks life's seas..." Have to find the rest of the lyrics for that one! Thank you thank you! *HUGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGS*

Oh My Goodness! Looks like I'm going to have to indoctrinate Sister S into the Rocky Horror Fan Club by getting her the DVD. She'll never be the same afterwards. Me loves me some Riff Raff. :) xxoo

I am probably the only boomer who hasn't seen that movie. I have seen different parts of it but it just never peaked my interest. Maybe it's because they sing too much?

Can I get in on that indoctrination? I need to be educated on the ways of Rocky Horror, but I wanna go to a live show instead!
