The Doctor gets a bad rap.
I like Cheap Trick, but I never cared for this one. Like Kiss Me Red, It's Up To You and It's Only Love, but that's about it. After Standing On the Edge I expected a more stripped down rock album. Tht wouldn't come about until 1994'sw Woke Up With a Monster and later, Cheap Trick '97. Loved last years In Another World:)

Free Man

I've got a little black book with my poems in
I've got a bag with a toothbrush and a comb in
When I'm a good dog they sometimes throw me a bone in

I got elastic bands keeping my shoes on
Got those swollen hand blues.
I got thirteen channels of shit on the T.V. to choose from

I've got electric light
And I've got second sight
Got amazing powers of observation

And that is how I know
When I try to get through
On the telephone to you
There'll be nobody home

I've got the obligatory Hendrix perm
And the inevitable pinhole burns
All down the front of my favourite satin shirt

I've got nicotine stains on my fingers
I've got a silver spoon on a chain
I've got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains

I've got wild staring eyes
I've got a strong urge to fly
But I've got nowhere to fly to

Ooh, babe, when I pick up the phone
There's still nobody home

I've got a pair of Gohills boots
But I've got fading roots.

Honestly, this song is so surreptitiously filthy, it's still kinda hilarious, after all these years, especially if you hear it from people's ringtones (yes, still!) or singing it (unwittingly) to their children in public places...

"Despacito
Quiero desnudarte a besos despacito
Firmar las paredes de tu laberinto
Y hacer de tu cuerpo todo un manuscrito

Quiero ver bailar tu pelo, quiero ser tu ritmo
Que le enseñes a mi boca
Tus lugares favoritos
Déjame sobrepasar tus zonas de peligro
Hasta provocar tus gritos
Y que olvides tu apellido"

Could never get in to Woke Up With A Monster, but Cheap Trick 97 is a beast of a record. Comfortably up there with the first 3 LPs. Most of the records since have been good solid rock albums with a few gems, though Bun E. Carlos is very much missed recently. His solo album is a treat.

I didn't like all of WUWM, but it was a return to their "rock sound". I liked the title track,Tell Me Everything, You're All I Wanna Do, Girlfriends(my fave track off it)Didn't Know I had It and Love Me For A Minute. Didn't care most of their 80s output as a whole. Liked certain songs from each album, but that's about it. Busted? No thanks. Didn't like Special One either but after that they've been pretty solid. Agree with you about CT '97 and Bun E Carlos:)
