Friday Red Mr. Peanut Bank and Gallito Mescalito Blogging: ShriekTube Video Edition

This evening we feature the Vocal Stylings of Ms. Egyptian Hippo of Love,
singing that wonderful Tommy James and the Shondells' hit
"I Think We're Alone Now." The Demure Ms. Egyptian Hippo of Love's version is kinda like the Lene Lovich version (you should have that playing in your head while reading), which is familiar to all you cool kids, along with the aforementioned TJ and the S. The less-cool members of the Dance Party are probably only familiar with the version by Teen Pop Star Tiffany, who is probably working at the Quicky-Mart right now. I'm sure there are even a few of you who are totally unfamilar with the song; you may want to pass this evening's episode. So now, without further ado, Ms. Egyptian Hippo of Love and the Singing Doggy Toys!!!!!


"Children behave!"


La-la-la-la-la-la-laaa


That's what they say when we're together
"And watch how you play"


La-la-la-la-la-la-laaa


They dont understand
And so we're
Running just as fast as we can

binku-binku-binku-binku-binku


Holdin' on to one another's hand


binku-binku-binku-binku-binku


Tryin' to get away into the night
And then you put your arms around me
And we tumble to the ground
And then you say



"I think we're alone now alone now
There doesn't seem to be anyone around
I think we're alone nowalone now
The beating of our hearts is the only sound"


Look at the way


La-la-la-la-la-la-laaa


We gotta hide what were doin'
'cause what would they say


La-la-la-la-la-la-laaa


If they ever knew?
And so we're

Running just as fast as we can


binku-binku-binku-binku-binku


Holdin' on to one another's hand


binku-binku-binku-binku-binku


Tryin' to get away into the night
And then you put your arms around me
And we tumble to the ground
And then you say



I think we're alone now alone now
There doesn't seem to be anyone around
I think we're alone now alone now
The beating of our hearts is the only sound


Horn Solo
Braaapp braaap honk honk honk braaaaapitybrap
honky honky honky ear-splitting high note held for five seconds



I think we're alone now alone now
There doesn't seem to be anyone around
I think we're alone now alone now
The beating of our hearts is the only sound


bampu-bampu-bampu-bampu-BAMP


¡¡¡SSHHRRRRIIIIEEEKKK!!!

Well worth the wait in every way!

Welcome back. You were missed. I felt a little sad each time I clicked and saw Pancake Art.

"Again?" I thought!?

I just aged myself, didn't I?

Matty Boy said...

And here I think of it as Lene Lovich's song. Though now I will never forget the genius interpretation by Egyptian Hippo of Love.

I would never have pegged him as the lead singer of the band. It's kind of like when we brought our Teen Scream Nathan Lindsay out to sing "I Can't Help Myself".

david austin allen, you didn't age yourself, you just made a bunch of us feel young again!

Lene Lovich? Tiffany?

Tommy James and the Shondells!!!!

"Over and over!"

KJ said...

Was this post Lovely Mona approved?

Grandmère Mimi said...

I see that this show has a much larger cast, including an openly gay character.

I second KJ. What did the Lovely Mona know, and when did she know it?

Padre Mickey said...

The Lovely Mona has given me permission to let you know that she approved this post and "thinks it's cute."
So dere.

Ed said...

I'm thrilled to see the Egyptian Hippo of Love get her 15 minutes of fame!!!

Caminante said...

If my maternal grandmother were still alive, I'd send her the singing hippo (she had one of those hippos for her collection; I don't remember who started giving her hippos but she had a lot) and Gabriel -- she had a Gabriel windvane on her house. Very funny.

Tia Sue said...

You outdid yourself Padre! I love dad ippo!

David Charles Walker said...

including an openly gay character.

We won't mention those in the closet (or toy box, as the case may be).

Dennis said...

Most excellent.
