Best audio moment from “Guardians of the Galaxy”

One of the things that I liked about the new “Guardians of the Galaxy” movie was the good1970s pop soundtrack that it had.  It was a mix of songs I both loved and hated — listening to the AM radio in my first-ever automobile: A 1969 Pontiac Bonneville station wagon.  The movie brought back a lot of my hazy 1970s memories …

... only mine was dark blue!

… only mine was dark blue!

Anyway, the greatest audio moment in GOTG was when the Eric Carmen and the Raspberries song “Go All The Way” blasts through.  A great “power pop” song from the early 70s!  Well done, Mr. movie music director.

It should occur to the listener that the lyrics are all FLIP-FLOPPED & JUXTAPOSED!

Listen to what the boy is saying about the girl.  In this song, it was the GIRL that wanted to “go all the way”!!!

How on Earth does the GIRL have to beg the BOY???

Who ever had a 1970s girlfriend that great? Sure there were stories in the locker room, but I thought that these were just braggarts.  And believe me, I heard a lot of stories.   Unfortunately, I had few stories to tell, not like the dumb jocks.  Oh, no, the dumb jocks had their stories, yes indeedee.

However the dumb jocks at our school were SO STUPID, they often could not articulate their backseat conquests effectively.  Our dumb jocks were so bad at describing the relevant details, that we had to give the dumb jocks anatomically correct dolls in order for them to explain their carnal accomplishments.

Anatomically-Correct

“OK, Moose, where did you do  her … OK, uh, huh,  … and where did she do you, uh, huh, I see. …”

Anyway, the movie-moment song brought back a lot of memories.  This is my seventies life and welcome to it.  I will also share this bootleg recording of the Raspberries on the old Mike Douglas show.  If you do not know who Mike Douglas was, ask your grandmother.  It was a syndicated variety show that would play at 4:00 in the afternoon.

The sound quality here is awful.  The group is lip- syncing to the song over the studio loudspeakers.  Actually, Eric Carmen IS singing, along with the tape.  What you hear on this YouTube video is not what was broadcast. The pre-recorded audio was broadcast, not what you hear here in the studio. Remember, this was TV.  Of course, all those grandmothers fainted out of their seats, as the teenagers would turn this up all the way to full volume.

It is a great piece of pop music history!

Pop culture historians will note that the group is interviewed after the song.  Lesbian tennis star Billy Jean King is there.  As well as AFL-NFL Hall-of-Famer NY Jets Quarterback Joe Namath.  That is just the kind of theater that made the Mike Douglas show, uh, ah, uh … one of the only three programs you could watch, because there were only three channels.
