Yep, time for something out of the ordinary. Feelin' silly on a Sunday, I guess. =)

As far as I know, Kid Rock does not appear in this video, nor is there a sample of Sweet Home Alabama.

(If you have to ask what that means, don't worry, you're really probably only one step further out of current pop culture than I am).

Warren Zevon - Werewolves of London


  1. Ohhh, I love this song!
    "Have A Nice Decade: The '70's Pop Culture Box" by Rhino Music has been a great investment. 8 cd's of nostalgia for us and an education for our kids.
    I esp. love the lines about Lon Chaney (too many horror films as a kid) and the werewolf in Trader Vic's with the perfect hair (images of American Psycho). Novel, not movie.
    A great addition to Sunday. :)

  2. Joel,
    Nice! Ha ha ha! LOL!
    My favorite parts are when he does the whole "Ahoooooo" thing, when the "Werewolf" comes running through their studio, and also when he's wearing the tuxedo sportin' the cane.
    Look at thier HAIR! Love that!
    Thanks for the fun post!

  3. "...nostalgia for us and an education for our kids..." :) I try to think of it that way with my 80's music as well, but sometimes I'm not so sure about the education of my kids. LOL :)

    Yep there sure is a lot of humor and sarcasm in this song.

    All of this is making me want to see if I can find An American Werewolf in London for rent somewhere.


    Quite an odd and funny video, eh! The 'werewolf' in the video kind of reminds me of one of those Geico cavemen. :)

    And yeah, those 70's hairstyles... I was just a kid with short hair in the 70's but I've got several pics of my brother, who's 11 years older than me, sporting the same kind of hairstyle as those in the video!

  4. When I first heard Kid Rock's new song, I thought it was a remake of WOL, THEN I heard SHA in it and had no idea where it was going.

    KR's song has grown on me, though, and I now enjoy hearing it. Call it a guilty pleasure, if you will.

    I can relate to the "smoking funny things" - a long time ago, of course!

  5. The Kid Rock song has grown on me too. :) SHA was always played at our school dances, and I can relate to the overall theme of those careless days back in my youth, especially after having been reunited with a few of my high school friends within the past few years.

    We've got a local 70's and 80's radio station that had just added Werewolves of London to their rotation, or at least I had begun hearing it a lot, just before I began hearing All Summer Long, and I too did kind of a double take, wondering if it was a remake or something. I'm sure many people recognize the SHA sound, but I wonder how many people even have a clue about the WOL sound. :)
