Rocky Horror - Let's Do the Time Warp Again

It is hard to believe that the Rocky Horror Picture Show is 35 years old.  The themes contained in the film and the overall wackiness made it a good pick to die a silent death in the popular culture swamps of 1975.  But survive it did, and eventually thrive through showings starting late in the '70's. 

The story was odd at best, acting irrelevant based on the over-the-top script, but the music, ah the music was incredible.  It was the platform that eventually kicked Meatloaf's career into a higher gear, and his performance as Eddie is unforgettable.

The movie is getting additional exposure now as Glee ended up doing a RHPS episode. Unfortunately, their covers lacked the rawness of this classic, and ended up sounding like American Idol rejects. Thus, for a palate cleanser, we close with the original Time Warp. It's just a jump to the left...
