An actor that can sing well is a fairly common thing. But an actor who can sing well enough to produce a hit record is a lot more impressive. In the 1980's, a handful of Hollywood stars managed to rattle off a hit tune. But most of those Hollywood actor tunes ended up lost to the bargain bins of yesteryear. This episode we take a look at some of the lesser known 80's actor albums.
Like a lot of folks, both Houdini and Elvis had an interest in the afterlife. Unlike a lot of folks, both Houdini and Elvis have attempts to reach them in the afterlife etched into vinyl. In this episode we'll take a look at a couple of vinyl records (and one CD) that contain some psychic shenanigans. I invoke thee to hit play and check it out!
I'd imagine that the first thing that inspired early mankind to make music was plain old curiosity. Glonk thwacked a rock on a log and liked the sound it made.
At this point in human history music has been inspired by anything and everything you can imagine. The thing that inspired all of the music in this episode is transportation. And in the more extreme examples, the music was even made with the transportation as an instrument.
Which begs the question: How do you tune a helicopter?
On this episode we take a look at a few examples of weird and wild religious vinyl records of a bygone era. We got sermons on UFOs and demon possessed grandmas, heartfelt gospel and tripped out pseudo poetry, godly karate chops and pirate puppet rap. It's all here on this episode of Earfool!
In this episode of Earfool, we'll take a look at a few tunes that were cursed to waste away in so called "bad" films. What did these songs ever do to get trapped in a world of Italian lizards, vampire pimps, and Canadian dream ghouls? And more importantly, will you be the hero they need to set them free by listening to the episode?....
On occasion we here at Earfool Podcast will discuss a song that, on the surface, appears to be about nothing more than sexual gratification, but upon further research, reveals a deeper, more noble notion. ('I Touch Myself' by The Divinyls comes to mind.) This episode is no different. Sisqo's 1999 mega dance hit, 'Thong Song', is a heartfelt plea to a star-crossed lover to let him into her wounded heart and... Nah, it's about panties.
I know Halloween has come and gone like a hell-goblin into the fiery crevices of the darkest netherworld. But in a desperate to cling to the much needed mindless joy that the spooky season brings me (and I'm hoping you, my dear Earfoolian), we're taking a look at the head banging-est horror movie subgenre of all time....
