One of the best rock lyrics ever, IMO.
I had only ever heard the Iron Maiden cover of that before.


*Sebastian, Lance is faster than you... do you understand?*


*I married Miss Right. Just didn't know her first name was Always

Fuck the Old Bill.
Is that the same Mike Parkes who raced?
Lol, just seen this..... no it wouldnt be the Mike Parkes who raced. His Father was Chairman of Alvis Cars and Mike worked as an automotive engineer for the Rootes Group.(Chrysler in the UK). He died in a road car accident in his 40's.

Haha, 1:11:29---> Pilate should have done a Nero, and crucified every single one of these idiots, except Jesus. I see how that wouldn't quite have fit the narrative, but whatever.

Great melodrama, tho:



Some of these riffs and arrangements run like a red thread through hard rock and heavy metal. I'd go as far as to say a band of the titan quality of Savatage wouldn't have existed without this musical. So, I give thanks... :haha:

Well, 0:44-0:54.



So, there's that. Knew I'd heard it before.

Here, too, actually (1:48-2:08):

Lacks a little something in weirdness, but the lyrics are superb.

Haven't heard this one since sometime in the first half of the '80s.

Best song of the Daisley-era of Ozzy's career. I've fortunately been of sound enough mind to conclude that it was in fact the best song of the Ozzy-era of Bob Daisley's career.

It is. Very Gothic, in the modern sense.

Repost.



"I don't know; I'm just following the tracks.".



"And you'd better pick yourself up from the ground, before they pull the curtain down!".

Can't with any degree of honesty give any other advice to anyone, at this point.

The whole world is a joke.
