Show 595 - That Love Disease Part 5: Nobody Loves and Leaves Alive: Despair!

Air Date:

Tuesday, 27 August 2013

Hey baby, Little Steven here.

Join us this weekend in the Underground Garage for part five of the seven stages of love.

This weekend we are exploring the bottom of the emotional depths with despair.

Tune in to find out who is the most depressing singer of all time. Is it Southside Johnny, Mick Jagger, or David Ruffin.

They are joined by the Byrds, the Animals, and the Jimi Hendrix Experience.

Brand new songs from the Hurricanes, Radio Days, and if you are not depressed enough yet, the Launderettes have a new song.

It’s Nobody Loves And Leaves Alive this weekend in the world’s only Rock n’ Roll dance party on the radio.

I’ll see you in the Underground Garage.

    Mm.I bet you're wonderin' how I knew/'bout your plans to make me blue/with some other guy you knew before...Oh-Please excuse me, as I was just working on some new sound lyrics, as usual. Gotta keep plugging away 'cause you never know when I might capture lightning in a bottle! All Right, Little Steven, Thank You so very much for yet another 5 Star Special that was so good that I listened to it again on Sunday Night. I would also like to thank The Administrator for getting the excellent show up into The Archives within only 48 hours! EXCELLENT WORK! Show # 595. That Love Disease:Pt. 5: Nobody Loves and Leaves Alive: DESPAIR! I must admit, however, Stevie, you fooled me on this one because I really thought that this week's connection was with I Wish It Would Rain! But you are The Maharag Of Garage, as well as a very well connected individual, so's I shall not argue with you on that point! O.K. This week I shall choose 3 songs from each set that feel captures this week's theme the best or just because I choose to pick that tune. Fair Enough? If you don't like it, then don't read my precious posted comments. It's only YOUR LOSS! Set 1. Absolutely incredible vocal by Mr. David Ruffin while with the Temptations with I Wish It would Rain. Next-I shall pick I'm Crying by The Animals, with that incredible vocal by Mr. Eric Burdon! Lastly, I pick Paint It Black by the Rolling Stones. Now just wait one minute! "I have to turn my head until my darkness goes". Stevie! That song is NOT on the playlist! What's Up With That? O.K.O.K. I'll play along here. Nice sound byte by 60's survivor, Mr. David Crosby, who I find it very difficult to find him still ALIVE! So now I can choose a 4th! O.K. The Byrds with Here Without You, from there excellent 1st L.P., from 1965. Never forget dishing out my $1.97 for that L.P. Very nice MONO. Set 2. Nice set-up by you, Little Steven, about how we are now on the very BOTTOM! Like you said, Stevie, "it's always darkest before the lights go completely out"! Excellent 1st tune written by Mr. George Harrison who delivers Don't Bother Me. Followed by a nice sound byte by the recently departed Mr. Sean Bonniwell who delivers 1 minute and 57 seconds of pure aggression with Talk Talk. Incredible single. Please refer to my review on Amazon of "The Ultimate Turn On" by The Music Machine! 2 Stellar discs of ALL of the 1st incarnation of that very Excellent group, who delivered so much more that just Talk Talk! I gave it 5 STARS! Very Well Deserved! Mr. Arthur Lee with Love deliver My Little Red Book, which was from their very 1st L.P. from 1966. It was also featured in the 1965 flick "What's New Pussycat", starring Mr. Peter O'Toole, the finest actor to ever receive 8 Academy Award Nominations but to NEVER even win one! Is there No Justice! "Lawrence Of Arabia"! Actually, in the movie soundtrack, Manfred Mann sang the tune. To finish, I shall pick The Rolling Stones with As Tears Go By, which was originally titled AS Time Goes by. That tune never fails to bring a tear to MY eye! Set 3. Yeah, Stevie, just sit home and cry like a baby. Leading us into Tears Of A Clown as done by Mr. Smokey Robinson & The Miracles. Later it was done by the English Beat, as New Wave continued past Punk! The Jive Five deliver an incredible Doo Wop tune titled My True Story, which many people incorrectly call Cry Cry Cry. Because that's what they say. Al Pacino and Diane Keaton give us a nice sound byte from "The Godfather:Pt. 2" from 1974. Man O Man, did you here Michael SMACK her or what? Southside Johnny & The Asbury Jukes give us This Time Baby's Gone for Good. So Wrong! Closing the 3rd set with the incredible vocal by Mr. Roy Orbison with It's Over. If you're not crying right about now, you had better check for a pulse! Set 4. Coolest song of the World this week is delivered by the Launderettes joining in the fun with Cold Cold Hearts. You could have followed that up with Hank Williams with Cold Cold Heart. The Beatles bring us back to 1965 with that great scene from "Help", when John Lennon sings You've Got to Hide Your Love Away. Seems like only yesterday. Nice sound byte by Woody Allen asking if it's "Something to Do With Me"? Closing set 4 with The Rolling Stones who declare that it's a Sad Day. Yes, it is indeed! After, of course, a nice sound byte by Mr. Andrew Loog Oldham, who declares the Underground Garage as a "very cool place to be". Can't argue with that! O.K. Now, there you go again, Little Steven, sneaking yet another tune that's not in the set list with The Everly Brothers singing Crying In the Rain. Now that's 1 extra tune in each set which was NOT played during the show last week. Could It Have Been The Mushrooms? Now wait! I wasn't doing any shrooms last week! Oh Well! gotta roll with the punches. Such Is Life! Set 5. Kicking off quite rightly with Cream and Deserted Cities Of The Heart. Very cool guitar solo by Mr. Eric Clapton. The Rolling Stones once again deliver the goods with Congradulations. O.K. if that's the very cool way to spell it, then why doesn't the set list spell it that way?! Oh boy, I'm really earning my street cred tonight! Very Cool new stuff by the Bayonets with Whatcha Got? Must admit that I'm more than a little partial to that tune because now I've got a chance with that very alluring young woman who sings the chorus about a "big truck parked inside of your garage"! How did she find out about THAT, Stevie? She really wants to know what I've got! O.K. But I promise not to hurt you! Really! Love those lips, eyes, and hair. And Stevie tells me that you are a nice person, as well. We Shall See! Thanks for fixing me up with her, Little Steven! Closing the 5th and last set with my favorite tune on this week's show. That being Mr. David Ruffin's 1st solo release after he left The Temptations which was My Whole World Ended The Moment You Left Me. So we both opened with "the master of despair", Mr. David Ruffin! How very symmetrical! O.K., Little Steven, we now have reached the bottom of the emotional curve! Next Week, it's time for REVENGE! YEAH BABY! Thanks again for the excellent tunes, as well as the lessons of Love, which we shall be learning up until the very day that we die! And Beyond! I continue to dig your fabulous new sponsor, The United Association! UAVIP! Out there making such an important difference by both training and finding jobs for our Veterans! A Very Worthy Undertaking, to say the least. Well, I guess that's it for another lesson from The Love Doctor! August has proven to be a very important month for Underground Garage Members! Last year, you schooled us on The Disciples Of Soul, and this August, we get 5 lessons about that Love Disease. That is, if youse others are as lucky as I am to get the show on BOTH Saturday AND SUNDAY nights! Can't wait for that REVENGE next week! Lessons In Love! To all who live IN and FOR, the Underground Garage, Peace be With You! I also hope that you all have a very pleasant Labor Day Weekend! O.K.? EEYAHH! SMRZ!!

    • Robert P Smarse Jr.

      Thank You Very Much, Mr. Hibbs. I appreciate the feedback! Well, we are now through the rough stuff, this week we exact REVENGE! I'm 65 so I find these shows more comical than depressing. Been through it all. Remember what Little Steven says, "It's always the darkest before the lights go completely out"! I hope that all is well with you across the pond. Emphasize the great music in these shows. Take care and Best Regards! Peace Be with You1 sincerely, SMRZ!

        Hey, Robert. I just turned 60 myself so know from whence you are coming from. I was on the phone last night with my little brother in Jersey (yeah, Steven, Jersey) talkin' for hours about our old lost loves and flames. Peace.

  • Paul Mosher

    "Some Things Just Don't Change" was my favorite Southside Johnny song and I would play it over and over - although my mother quickly grew tired of it...

  • Gary Gassman

    Hey, Robert. I just turned 60 myself so know from whence you are coming from. I was on the phone last night with my little brother in Jersey (yeah, Steven, Jersey) talkin' for hours about our old lost loves and flames. Peace.

  • jcjohnson63

    love this series !!!! thanks for posting! love the launderettes too!! keep on rockin!! :)

  • Robert P Smarse Jr.

    Little Steven! Am I going completely bonkers or did you sneak in 1 extra tune in each of the 1st 3 sets? Did anybody else notice or am I having auditory hallucinations again? Flashbacks, maybe? Any other UG members please answer me before I have to check into another clinic!

    • Steed Colliss

      Hey Robert,

      greetings from Montreal...

      It seems that some songs have been forgotten in the playlist:
      Set 1: Rolling Stones' "Paint It Black"
      Set 3: The Who's "The Good'S Gone"
      Set 4: Little Anthony and the Imperials' "Hurt so Bad" and the Everly Brothers' "Crying in the Rain"
      Set 5: Souhtside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes' "The Light Don't Shine No More"...

      I still have the podcast of the show (from rockfm.fm), but not on my iPod right now so I can't verify... I'll Listen to it again tonight to see is the songs are also on it because I don't remember hearing the Everly Brothers (since they are not played that much on the show ("Bird Dog" (show 138), "Problems" (shows 47 and 221) and "When Will I Be Loved ?" (show 57)))...

      Also, I wonder if the musical beds will be added... They are part of the show, no ?

      • Robert P Smarse Jr.

        Hey Steed! Thank You Very Much for responding. Yes, I did hear all of those songs you listed. I'm sure about the Everly Brothers because I played it over again. As far as the musical beds, they were actually in there but not listed. Thanks again, Steed! Peace! SMRZ!

  • steve dicoio

    Is there anywhere I can go to , to purchase the song in the first set by " Lost Boys ". . I would love to add that to my collection .

  • Ron Lynch

    5 cool ones. Runaway (Del Shannon), Some Things Just Don’t Change (Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes), It’s Over (Roy Orbison), You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away (Beatles), Manic Depression (Jimi Hendrix Experience).
    Thanks Stevie, Keep on Rockin.

  • luvzlionz

    Southside's "Light Don't Shine" is missing from your set 5 list, and I'm really digging all the classic SJ tunes in this series. Thanks Steven!

  • Chris Dougherty

    Great set of music even with the missing tracks on the listing. Guess we went back to the Seventies and Eighties with the unlisted tracks!
