Show 594: That Love Disease Part 4: Aint Too Proud To Beg: Desperation

Air Date:

Tuesday, 20 August 2013

Hey baby, Little Steven here.

Join us this weekend in the Underground Garage for part four of our seven-part Love Disease special.

We are exploring all kinds of desperation this week.

The depths we go to try and keep a relationship together…usually in vain of course.

Joining us will be the Blues Magoos, Otis Redding, the Vanilla Fudge, and Them.

We have brand new music from Mark Lindsay, the Bayonets, and Radio Days from Italy.

It’s the only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio.

I’ll see you this weekend in the Underground Garage.

    Blue does indeed turn to grey and these songs ALMOST make me want to go through the wringer of misplaced love again - but masochism ain't my bag. Praise the music

  • Robert P Smarse Jr.

    I want you back again/I want your love again/I know you find it hard to reason with me....Oh, please excuse me. I was just working on some new song lyrics. O.K. DESPERATION-A state of despair-the complete loss or absence of hope. The Love Dr. is in the house! Time for some new schoolin' and some very cool tunes. Thank You so very much. Little Steven, for another 5 Star special that explored the territory of Desperation. I also would like to Thank the Administrator for getting the show up into The Archives within 48-72 hours. EXCELLENT WORK! Show # 594. That Love Disease:Pt. 4:Ain't Too Proud To Beg:DESPERATION! Try to tough it out but it's over. All you are doing is hammering the final nails into you own coffin! Begging in Vain! O.K., UG Members. This week I shall choose either 2 or 3 tunes that display our theme. Fair Enough? Set 1. Gotta go with The Temptations who deliver Ain't Too Proud To Beg, which is Very thematic to this week's show. Next Up, I shall go with Baby Please Don't Go by The Animals. A very good example of begging, I'd say. Finishing off the 1st set that featured begging, I pick The Vanilla Fudge with You Keep Me Hanging On, which is a truly psychedelic example. I also would like to honor the excellent production of that tune, which was done by the recently departed, late, great, George "Shadow" Morton. Such a terrible loss for the world of music. We miss you already, "Shadow"! Set 2. Nice astute observations about Art and how it can help us through life. As you said. Stevie, Art can provide Catharsis. Ph.D. in Affairs of the Heart through life's tough times. True genius, Stevie! Would have to go with the excellent tune by The Rolling Stones which would be Tell Me, from 1964. Best ballad ever? Not going to argue with you on that, Stevie! Next, I choose Dusty Springfield who delivers Stay Awhile. Excellent sound byte by Mr. John Belushi, who displays a perfect example of begging. I must not omit the Bayonets who ask us Whatcha got?, because I have a serious crush on that very sexy lead singer. Can you help me out with that, Stevie? She is one very alluring woman, to be sure. Next up, I gotta go with Little Steven & The Disciples Of Soul with Inside Of Me. Excellent tune, Dr. Maharaj of Garage, who is also now Dr. Love! Set 3. Trying to fight back. Die with Dignity. The Rolling Stones once again with Mercy Mercy. "Her bags are packed under the bed". Not a very good sign at all. The Hurricanes come crawling out of 1965 or 1966 to deliver But You Let Me Go. Excellent tune! Closing set 3 would be the truly incredible vocal by Curtis Mayfield with I'm A Fool For You as done by The Impressions. So much for the Begging set. It hurts so darn much. Hoping for Catharsis. Set 4. Yes, I agree. Some men do live lives of quiet desperation. The Blues Magoos strongly deliver We Ain't Got Nothing Yet. "Cause we got too much at stake". That's fer sure! The Rolling Stones come back yet again with Blue Turns To Grey. Nice sound byte by Mr. Bill Maher. "If women ran the world there'd be no wars". Very Funny bill! Mr. Bruce Springsteen & The East St. Band close set 4 with Fade Away. Nice guitar there, Little Steven! Set 5. When all is lost-try Guilt! Really, what do you have to lose at this point? A truly remarkable vocal by Mr. David Ruffin with I Could Never Love Another(After Loving You). His very last vocal with The Temptations from 1968. Have to go with The Stones yet again who try Confessin' the Blues. Does she feel guilty yet? No Chance of that! Nice sound byte by Mr. Johnny Depp. And closing the 5th and last set that tried Guilt, we get Stay With Me by Lorraine Ellison. And now, yes, things seem to be getting darker & darker. And that's it for another Excellent musical show that explored the depths of Desperation. Time to go walk over that Great River Bridge that hovers over The Westfield River and ponder. Shall I Jump-or NOT! All right, Little Steven, I'll remember your words "Always the darkest before the lights go completely Out"! And I guess that's it for yet another week. Next week, we shall be experiencing "DESPAIR"! Can't wait for that! The Master Of Despair! Thanks again, Little Steven, for such an excellent show. I continue to dig your fabulous new sponsor, the United Association, UAVIP! They continue to provide both training and jobs in the Piping industry for our Veterans. Filling a much needed void! For all who live IN and FOR, The Underground Garage-Peace Be With You! EEYAHH! SMRZ!

    Show 594: That Love Disease Part 4: Aint Too Proud To Beg: Desperation... title is missing a single quote in the word Ain't :)

  • Ron Lynch

    This show is amazing, Anyway That You Want Me (Evie Sands) this one put me in the time tunnel and sent me back 44 yrs cool cool.
    Inside of Me (Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul) this one I play on vinyl, nice stuff.
    Fade Away (Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band) Bruce digs down deep for the soul of despair & grabs it and delivers, powerful song.
    Thanks Stevie, Keep on Rockin.

    OMG, The Twylight Zones. Head over heels in love with them and "St. Valentine's Day Massacre", and "Not Fade Away." Absolutely beautiful movie, killer song, fabulous performance. Wish they had made more records.... ;)
