From the YouTube Music Archives XXXIV: Vicious, Live in Paris

Okay, the deal is that I’ve got a $#i!^oa% of work to do and I just don’t want to do it. So at no extra cost to you, here is an entirely awesome video of ‘Vicious’, in which a wine and who-knows-what-else besotted Lou does a pretty decent imitation or maybe interpretation of Mick Jagger, except he’s better. It was originally on the album Transformer, which also had the awesomely incredible songs Satellite of Love (with another amateur music video, this one pretty worthless – well, maybe not, as I just watched a couple more seconds of it and these two girls get that free-spirited thing across pretty well) and the seminal Walk on the Wild Side. I’m not even sure what “seminal” means, but somehow it seems to fit. And if you haven’t bothered with the other homemade videos, this one really is a must-see-powerpoint-presentation of what seems to me to be a bunch of different New Yorkers caught in the act of being New Yorkers.

Vicious / You hit me with a flower / You do it every hour / Ohh, baby youre so vicious / Vicious / You want me to hit you with a stick / But all Ive gots a guitar pick / Huh… baby youre so vicious / When I watch you come / I just want to run far away / Youre not the kind of person / Around whom I want to stay / When I see you comin down the street / I step on your hands and I mangle your feet / Youre not the kind of person that I wanna meet / Oh, baby, youre so vicious / Vicious / You hit me with a flower / You do it every hour / Ohh, baby youre so vicious / Vicious / Hey, why dont you swallow razor blades / You must think Im some kinda gay blade / But baby, youre so vicious / When I watch you comin / I just have to run / Youre not good and you certainly arent very much fun / When I see you walkin down the street / I step on your hand and I mangle your feet / Youre not the kind of person that I even wanna meet / cause youre so vicious / Vicious / Vicious…

    Shared a needle w/Lou.

    It was a good time.

    I need to get a NY Mets cap because these New Yorkers are all very talented people (If you can make in there you can make it anywhere).

    Quin, enough of this bus driving. It’s time to make to move to the Big Apple.

    I’m saving money, so I’ll wear a Mets cap while driving the bus. It’s against regulations, strictly speaking, but from what I’ve seen as uniforms … well, ain’t too regular.
