Hey Reputah! Reputah the Beautah! Sorry. Had a J. Geils moment there.

Laurie said...

I know this isn't it, but the only thing that comes to my mind is Agony from Into the Woods.

Mr Farty said...

MAW - Repu- what? The last J Geils moment I had was in the 1980s.

Laurie - Dude, where do you find this stuff?

Think of it as a generic example. I could have done a troll under the Brooklyn Bridge or Hansel & Gretel in Center Park.

Let it Bleed - Rolling Stones?

Sunday Bloody Sunday - U2?

or perhaps some song about barf that I don't know. Looks like blood - could be puke. Meh. I got nothin'

Statue of Liberty bleeds onto a duck narrowly missing Prince!

Am I close? Am I?

Laurie said...

Bleeding and blood? And you wonder where I come up with this stuff? At least my answer had to do with hair.

I found the answer on the interwebs, and Wikipedia says it's popular there, but I don't think I've ever heard it.

Mr Farty said...

Sew - What's with all the blood? Have you tried "click to enlarge"?

John - Yep - apart from the blood. The duck just happened to be there when the picture was taken.

Laurie - Oh. I thought this would have been popular in the US, what with Matt Dillon being in the video, but it looks like you're right.

Vodka Mom said...

name that tune? I'd like to, but I can't stand Prince.

Mr Farty said...

VM - I'm none too fond of him myself, though he did write Nothing Compares 2 U.

john.g. said...

Not a clue!

Mr Farty said...

John - Hmmm, you want a clue? Think "Big Apple", magic and, er, that's it. Oh, Irish group with British vocalist.

I've Been Mugged said...

All the critics love U in New York (Prince) covered by some old Irish group with a British vocalist?

Mr Farty said...

IBM - So near, not really.

Mr Farty said...

Anybody? No?

Kirsty MacColl and The Pogues - Fairytale of New York.
