Timothy Leary

Posted by shanoah on November 7, 2008

You know, I was listening to your last post, with ‘Bella Lugosi’s Dead, and it occurred to me: Timothy Leary’s also dead. And, well, I couldn’t resist that transition, so…

Legend of a Mind – Moody Blues

And, no, Timothy Leary wasn’t dead when this was written. I thought it was a good transition, though, and it is a Moody Blues song I like a lot[1], off ‘In Search of the Lost Chord’.

Of course, I’ve actually been listening to a remix of the whole Beach Boys album “Pet Sounds” today:

Wouldn’t it be nice?

If you like that song, the album can be found at the Hippocamp Ruin Pet Sounds site. And the various tracks were done by various different people, incidentally.

But I may have gotten off track. The theme was 70’s music, wasn’t it? Or was it showtunes? No matter, this will work for both:

Sweet Transvestite – Rocky Horror Picture Show

Tim Curry is amazing, isn’t he? From Dr. Frank-N-Furter here to Pennywise the Clown in It, he always has a commanding appearance when necessary.

And he appears to have done voiceovers for a million cartoons, and read a number of books on tape. Not to mention his appearance in Fern Gully…

[1] But, as you may have gathered, there are a lot of those.
