Jersey Boys…I won’t go. Here’s why.



If they did the movie about this album, I’d go. But I doubt they even mention it. Just like “I Walk The Line” never mentions “The Junkie and the Juicehead Minus Me”.

I keep seeing reports that sitting is bad for you. Putting a big wrench in my plans.


It’s “Toyota”.

    Sooooo…I need some splainin’ here. Read the post, sort listened to the vid…but lost as to connect between Jersey Boys and this bloggy thingy. I’m a bit of a dipsy doodle here…I love the Four Seasons, love their music and do want to see the movie BUT if its fictionalised crap crap, I’ll keep my rosy glasses on for awhile longer.

    • The point of the post is to say that usually these musical biography movies don’t take into account the artists more obscure works. In 1969 the four seasons try their hand at psychedelic progressive music. And the album that’s featured in the video that I posted is an example from that album. Even though they recorded some amazing songs and some incredible singles, I think that it’s safe to say that their best album as a whole artistic statement is probably the album that they’re not even going to mention. But I’m not going to spend the money to find out. Not unless you’re going to pay for the movie tickets.

    I listen to music in a movie the same as others look for a plot. I love hearing a familiar tune in the background. The first movie I really noticed the music was Good Morning Vietnam. I remember being unsettled because the music seemed very “B-side” if you get my drift. No big hits from that era. Thinking back of course it was what was available for use in the film as well as the costs for the licences for the songs. From then on I have tried to gear my thinking toward whether the music is appropriate. That said and not having seen the play, would the more obscure music have a place in the play or the film?

    Also you’ll have to pay, they don’t take my “funny money” down there.

    • Absolutely not. It would grind the thing to a halt. It was an atypical attempt at relevance on their part. No, it would be just for my amusement. Canadian money is awesome. I still have some loonies from my time visiting Toronto. Won’t fit in fort Erie strippers g-strings!

    PS: loved the Four Seasons, didn’t care for The Beach Boys early stuff…enjoyed their more experimental music later in their careers. From what I understand there was a movie made about the Beach Boys that treated their later music as so much “hippie dippie” tripe…sad. I’d never go see a movie which trivialises their music, so on second thought keep your money for the movie, k?

    LOLZ! Strippers have a terrible time fitting all those coins in their thongs here too!

    I live in Kingston, Ontario about 3.5 hours east of Toronto. About 5 minutes from a US border across from Wolfe Island off the shores of Kingston. But I don’t have a valid passport anymore so can’t cross the border. 😥 😥

    Too true. I didn’t see the movie about the BB’s, but the publicity about it certainly pointed out what a tragic life those boys had with that mad man of a father! May watch Jersey boys on TV, not sure.

    Hahaha…we do have strippers, I think. Think about the poor things in -40C weather with naught but a g-string to their names! And…and…men are too cheap to use paper money at five bucks a pop so they throw those cold, cold loonies and toonies at her! These women have to be as hale and hearty as horses so why not look like one?

    Never been to Buffalo. I’ve been to Syracuse and we used to cross over to Alexandria Bay every weekend, in summer by boat, car by winter, to drink that gnat’s piddle you call beer!

    Back in the early ’70’s ¢25 was a fair price for a draught. Not that insipid substance they served us, but for real beer yes.

    Just saw the post asking about my passport…much as I would love to say I’m a harrowing (yes I said harrowing!) serial killer in a max jail here in Canada, alas, I got it when I was but a lass and have never renewed. Sorry for being so…bland, *sigh*

    I think cause I have my privacy ramped up to…”If you really, really, really want to find me…forget it!”, new friends are unable to find me, but its there under Jenn Lyons! Yup I just looked down my top. I’m still here!

    This may be true, but I look at it this way:

    for a minute Rose of Sharon sat still in the whispering barn. Then she hoisted her tired body up and drew the comfort around her. She moved slowly to the corner and stood looking down at the wasted face, into the wide, frightened eyes. Then slowly she lay down beside him. He shook his head slowly from side to side. Rose of Sharon loosened one side of the blanket and bared her breast. “You got to,” she said. She squirmed closer and pulled his head close. “There!” she said. “There.” Her hand moved behind his head and supported it. Her fingers moved gently in his hair. She looked up and across the barn, and her lips came together and smiled mysteriously.
