Return of O.W.N. - Week 5 = "Hold Me Tight"

This week we're discovering the little talked about classic rock band from the U.K. called "The Beatles".

Martin Short voices the title character in that PBS Kids show. As the Cat in the Hat, he can sing really good. The best example is the meerkat episode. He also sung before on a few talk shows like Australian Daytime TV. He sounds good no matter where he is!

Better Off Solo -> Latest Entries

Limahl from Kajagoogoo
Considering that the band forcibly removed Limahl from the group, taking bad advice from one of their managers that Limahl was the reason why they couldn't shed that "teenybopper" image, I could sense during VH1 Bands Reunited interview that there were still sour grapes between Limahl and the rest of the band. I'm not kidding either. Limahl seemed to still be upset that the band and their managers wanted to "be rid of him!" But despite the awful way that he was let go from the band Limahl still did really well.

Camila Cabello from Fifth Harmony
Fifth Harmony did have a couple of hits, but Camila is proving to be so much better solo, what with both "Havana" and "Never Be the Same" hitting number one and all.

Song Lawsuits -> Latest Entries
"Sorry," Justin Bieber
Indie artist White Hinterland accused Bieber and Skrillex of using her vocal loop from her 2014 song "Ring the Bell" without permission; Skrillex rebutted Hinterland's claims by uploading a video manipulating the vocals of co-writer Julia Michaels. The lawsuit was later dropped. - Submitted By: Maryellen Larkin
"Soft Kitty," Cast of 'The Big Bang Theory'
A lawsuit was filed by the estate of one Edith Newlin (her two daughters) in 2015 claiming that the show, The Big Bang Theory, CBS and Time Warner, Inc. used Mrs. Newlin's song "Warm Kitty" written in 1930, without their permission. The suit claims that the series changed the title of the song to "Soft Kitty" before putting it in illegally. A U.S. District Count dismissed the case, stating that the Newlin sisters failed to show proof of a copyright for the song. - Submitted By: Odie Garfield

"Concrete and Gold," Foo Fighters: "Right at the end of the title track, which closes the CD - there is a few seconds of silence and then Dave Grohl shouts out, 'F*** you, Darrell!'. This seems to be a playful jab at Darrell Thorp, who helped record the album. He said that the Foo Fighters were fun to work with, so that indicates that little outburst is really just a studio joke." - Submitted By: Shout It Out Loud, Brotha!

Guitarist's Beard - Cheap Trick
In the mid 90s to the mid 00s or so guitarist Rick Neilson sported a very thin mustache and a beard that tapered to a LOOOOOOOOOOOONG thread that had a bag (teabag?) dangling from it. Sometime in the 00s decade he shaved it off and sold the shavings and bag on E-Bay and donated all the proceeds to charity. - Submitted By: I've Seen Cheap Trick Live 5X!

Music With a Warning Label -> Latest Entries
"Get Up Off Your Knees," Various Artists
The back cover of the CD says "Warning: Much of the content is sexual in nature and may not be suitable for the young and the sensitive."
Robert Jon Brown
"Thriller," Michael Jackson
The title tracks music video reads "Due to my strong personal convictions, I wish to stress that this film in no way endorses a belief in the occult'' ~Michael Jackson
"The Singular Adventures Of ....," Style Council
The inner liner notes of this best-of CD has some kooky story about a "Cappuccino Kid" and his "literature". On the bottom of this page is the proud announcement keeping in tune with the UN sanctions on the apartheid regime of South Africa (this album was put out in 1989): THIS RECORDING IS NOT FOR SALE IN SOUTH AFRICA.
Ain't Gonna Play Sun City Either
"Guilty Pleasure," Ashley Tisdale
The CD and back cover contains a FBI Anti-Piracy warning notice which had "FBI Anti-Piracy Warning: Unauthorized Copying is Punishable Under Federal Law" (like the ones shown on Blu-ray Discs and DVDs currently released by Lions Gate Home Entertainment including Grace Unplugged). But if you try to copy/rip a MP3 file from a CD using a program (or download a MP3 file online) without prior licensing, you'll be punished immediately.
Brandon Reina
"The Great Escape," Blur
In the booklet, there is a picture of Neuschwanstein Castle (the same photo as on the Country House single cover) and underneath this photo it says "Warning: Private Property". This doesn't mean anything as such and is just a quirk in the packaging.
"Greatest Hits," Devo
The CD itself (not the case) has a picture of someone sticking a fork into a toaster. I figure it's a "what not to do" sort of thing...
"The Last In Line," Dio
Though there are no lyrics in the booklet, the back cover of this album has some lyrics from the title track written in fancy medieval-looking font. "We'll know for the first time, if we're evil or divine. We're the last in line. - RJD"
"Sex (single)," Motley Crue
Motley Crüe's single "Sex", released prior to their 2012 tour with KISS, has a front cover design in the style of and parodying the "Parental Advisory" stickers. The top and bottom of the cover feature the words "Mötley" and "Crüe" respectively, while the middle part just says the word "SEX".
"Invasion Of Your Privacy," Ratt
Ratt's sophomore full-length release got a "Parental Advisory" sticker, due to the title and album cover being references to voyeurism, a topic the PMRC viewed as inappropriate. The sticker has since been removed.
"Full Moon Fever," Tom Petty
On the back cover of the CD version - it says "The music on this compact digital disc was originally recorded on analog equipment. We have attempted to perserve, as closely as possible, the sound of the original recording. Because of it's high resolution, however, the compact disc can reveal limitations of the source tape."
"Mechanical Resonance," Tesla
On the back cover of the CD version - it says "The music on this compact digital disc was originally recorded on analog equipment. We have attempted to perserve, as closely as possible, the sound of the original recording. Because of it's high resolution, however, the compact disc can reveal limitations of the source tape."
"Erotica," Madonna
Some of the album covers have Parental Advisory Ratings but everything bad on the CD is probably censored
"The Hits (1993 - 2003)," Marty Dread
This reggae hits compilation has the usual "Unauthorized duplication is a violation of the laws of ..." but it doesn't say "federal copywrite laws". Instead it says that unauthorized duplication is a violation of the laws of the "King of Kings Jah Rastafari". Honest!
Don't Piss Off Haile Selassie
"As Good As Dead," Local H
On the album's sticker, it reads: "Yeah mom, the 'F Word' is in it", a parody of the explicated lyrics sticker.
"Low DVD EP," Foo Fighters
A sticker was added below the usual warning (from the content in the "Low" video that got it banned from MTV) so that it can read "Parental Advisory Warning: Explicit Content ...and also big trucks."
"eMotive," A Perfect Circle
On the actual CD ( not the case), there is the longest anti-illegal music downloading warning I have ever seen. I'm not even going to bother putting it here, but it's worth seeing if you own the album.
"Prisoners In Paradise," Europe
It's a goofy little thing at the end of the lyrics in the CD booklet...Europe will not be held responsible for...then it lists like 4 hilarious effects the music may cause.
"Broken," Nine Inch Nails
In the liner notes, there is a warning reading, "Caution: Not for use with mono devices." The reason for this being is that Trent stated the songs do not sound right when being played through mono devices.
eg: Mike Smith
"Amnesiac," Radiohead
The back cover says "Radiohead. Amnesiac. Store away from direct sunlight, preferably in a dark drawer with your secrets. See inside for details."
"Live Era '87-'93," Guns N' Roses
Look very closely at the cover, just below the 2nd poster on the top row. It says "Warning: The Surgeon General Has Determined That Hollywood Rose Is Bad For Your Health (but worth the risk)". You might need a big LP to see it because the writing is very small.
