Singer: ♫ Your heart's a dead tomato splotched with moldy purple spots, Mr. ♫ NC: (Voiceover) But what really makes it stand out are the lyrics. Seuss, had a big part in writing the words, and it shows. Tim Curry's transvestite song is well known by most people. NC: (Voiceover) See, I think of something out of the Meat Loaf cover, like monsters singing, skeletons on guitar, or something really, really cool like that.
The tune, of course, is very catchy, and the singing voice of Tony the Tiger himself, Thurl Ravenscroft, just sounds fantastic. ♫ NC: (Voiceover) It's sung by The Shadow Man, voiced by Keith David*, who is nice to see is growing more and more in popularity. They both seem very bright, energetic and extremely over-the-top. A picture of the soundtrack cover, then the Meat Loaf Bat Out of Hell covers, are shown with the song still playing.
Pictures of famous movie villains are shown with Night on Bald Mountain playing in the background. A perfect melody for the red and green villain of the red and green holiday. It's actually kind of a nice welcome change-of-pace. Pirates: ♫ Shiver my timbers, shiver my sails, dead men tell no tales. NC: Number 9 - Friends on the Other Side from The Princess and the Frog. NC: (Voiceover) It really does sound like he's just been writing the same bland song over and over and over and over and OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER!!! Most of the songs in this movie are pretty bland as well, that is, except for two: Almost There, which was okay, I guess, and this song, which is a HECK of a lot of fun. According to Steve Martin's song, it's because they're straight-up sadists that can get paid for their cruelty.
Whether they're over-the-top, subtle, sympathetic, or monstrous, villains are some of the most enjoyable characters in all of media, and when I was growing up, there was one part in any musical that I always looked forward to: the villain song. The Grinch still continues to be one of the great bad guys of Christmas, and this song certainly played a large part in making that happen. NC: (Voiceover) I only discovered this one recently. I'll admit I haven't seen the movie, but listening to this song really makes me want to. It's got a great beat, enjoyable lyrics, and it sounds a little more intimidating than the usual Muppet songs. NC: (Voiceover) Not much else to say except it's a catchy little tune that puts you in the SCURVY mood. For example, why would anyone want to be a dentist? ♫ NC: (Voiceover) And in "Sweet Transvestite", it asks the question of ...
♫ Monkey: ♫ The devil himself would have to call them scum. It still keeps its natural, goofy tone as well, having the backup singers be hermit crabs, snakes, and ... So it still manages to keep the Muppet spirit, I guess. ♫ NC: (Voiceover) It's ironic because anyone who knows my taste in music knows I can't STAND Randy Newman.
If you’re going out on the weekend to a club or a party, it’s a big deal.
It’s that time of the year: Creepy crawly spiders are adorning front porches, makeshift graveyards inhabit front lawns, and jack-o-lanterns light up the night sky.
