Shock Treatment (1981), a follow-up to the film The Rocky Horror Picture Show — “Not a sequel, not a prequel, but an equal.” Written by Richard O’Brien, directed by Jim Sharman,  and starring Jessica Harper, Cliff De Young as Brad Majors, Richard O’Brien, Patricia Quinn, and Barry Humphries as Bert Schnick.

Leonard Cohen’s “Everybody Knows” from Pump up the Volume (1990) starring Christian Slater.

I loved this movie. I think it inspired some of my rebellious streak. Not to mention a bit of a crush on Slater. When I bought the soundtrack album, I was heartbroken to find this song missing — replaced by a nice-enough cover by Concrete Blonde. For a long time it was really difficult to find this song.

Man, I love that man’s voice.

"Everybody Knows"

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows
Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died

Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you’ve been faithful
Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows you’ve been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that it’s now or never
Everybody knows that it’s me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when you’ve done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old Black Joe’s still pickin’ cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows

"When you Pop a Boner in the Shower" from the 1993 musical Zero Patience — a very silly film, obviously. The guy in the towel is an immortal Sir Richard Francis Burton (looks pretty good for 170 years old!), who is studying a Canadian bath house ostensibly to learn more about the lascivious homosexual lifestyle that led to the AIDS epidemic. He’s a bit … conflicted. And learns a lot through the film.

If you can find it, I recommend Zero Patience, both for the quirky musical numbers and the sheer, bewildering mish-mosh of styles and ideas. And watch out for the duet between two singing asshole puppets.

(NOTE: of my many small YouTube videos, this is, by a large margin, the most-watched.)
