Hey Joe: To keep your ram/sheep/goat theme going, check out the New Orleans classic "Didn't He Ramble" (done by Jelly Roll Morton, Dr John & many more). It's a variation of an old English song ("The Darby Ram"), although I have never figured out the connection. How did it get to N.O?

In the mid-70s, a writer in Boston was addressing the subject of the Tubes. Pointing out that their first Boston gig had been at Harvard's Hasty Pudding Club, he suggested that they were better understood as theater than as rock music. I kinda think a similar argument's to be made about Meat Loaf and Steadman.

Jack, Todd produced the Tubes around the same time as the first Loaf, so there you are.

Anyone heard any music from Meat's daughter, Olive?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:58am Greg from Bloomfield:

You went there, Joe. Respect.
Avatar 11:59am Claw!:

I think the "that" he's referring to is "pegging."
Avatar 11:59am Claw!:

*groan*, V. But I laughed nonetheless..;

MEATLOAF!!!!!!! one of my all-time *guilty pleasures*
it is so not "cool" to like him -- but i just cannot resist -- especially this song! (like bobdoesthings sez); the little twist in the lyrics :)
Avatar 12:01pm slugluv1313:

nah, nothing interesting like pegging -- he is just referring to plain ol' "screwing around" :)

enjoyed the show, even the meatloaf!

By the way, here is a translation of the lyrics to the Chinese New Year song:

1
Everywhere in the streets,
Every person's mouth
Speaks this word.
It is congratulations.
Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations to you
Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations to you

2
The winter has come to an end.
What good news!
The warm breeze of the spring
will wake up the earth.
Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations to you
Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations to you

3
The heavy snow has melted.
Soon the plum blossoms will spill out.
The endless nights have passed.
Hear the rooster's shrill crow.
Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations to you
Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations to you

4
After so much difficulty,
Experiencing so much discipline,
How many hearts are looking forward
To the news of spring?
Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations to you
Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations to you

Joe! you spelled Shleep wrong!
Avatar 9:46am Joe McG:

I sure did, but it's fixed now! I think I wanted the album to be called "Schlep."
