LOST Parody : “Swimming In Blue Jeans”

” There are two types of people in this world…those who like Neil Diamond and those who don’t” ( Bob Wiley~ “What About Bob”)

I wrote this parody, in tribute, to the much spoken of “fact”, on various LOST podcasts , that our beloved Losties apparently really dig swimming with their jeans on.

As summer is winding down, I thought I’d finally put this song out there (and it’s pretty out there… ๐Ÿ™‚ )

WARNING : If you have an aversion to the effects of what happens when denim and salt water mix and/or disturbing ” interpretation” of a Neil Diamond vocalization (are there any other kind?) , turn back NOW! ๐Ÿ˜‰

SWIMMING IN BLUE JEANS

Stick like caulk
And chaffin’ so bad, I can barely walk
But if it worked for Sawyer and Charlie
I’d much rather be
Swimmin’ in blue jeans

Denim’s sweet
So I don’t care about the gravity
And like Des and Sayid
I’d like to stay pruney all day
Swimmin’ in blue jeans

Maybe tonight
Maybe tonight by the fire get my jeans nice and dry
But then the sound of the pounding surf
Calls me to dive

Stick like caulk
And fabric so tight that it hurts to cough
But if it worked for Sawyer and Charlie
I’d much rather be
Swimmin’ in blue jeans, babe

And denim’s sweet
So I don’t care it pinches in the seat
And like Des and Sayid
I’d like to stay pruney all day
Swimmin’ in blue jeans

Maybe tonight
Maybe tonight by the fire get my jeans nice and dry
But then the sound of the pounding surf
Calls me to dive

Skin like chalk
Wrinkled like the trenchcoat of Peter Falk
But if I wanna be like a Lostie
I guess I’ll just keep
Swimmin’ in blue jeans

And if you pardon me
Havin’ fun but…
My fly’s rusted shut
From swimmin’ in blue jeans, babe

Until I get some WD-40
I guess I’ll still be
Swimmin’ in blue jeans

Swimming In Blue Jeans by Ms. Wendy

(Parody of ” Forever in Blue Jeans ” By Neil Diamond {Neil Diamond, Richard Bennett, 1979 Stonebridge Music (ASCAP) } , New lyrics by Wendy Lincoln, 2008)

LOST Thoughts: Sawyer Nickname Origin #20

In “The Moth”, Sawyer tries to reassure his “Amigo” (Charlie)
that he will inform Kate (and Sayid )about Jack trapped in a cave in. Of course, being Season One Sawyer, he decides to withhold that tidbit of info from Kate until she had thoroughly dissed him about the lack of “Jackness” in his character. ๐Ÿ™‚

Amigo : (female form: Amiga) is a Spanish and Portuguese word for friend. It has been in use in American English since 1837 (as in Adiรณs, amigo, meaning Goodbye, friend). ( Source: Wikipedia )

Sadly, we had to say “Adios, amigo” to Mr. Pace , IMO, in one of the most moving scenes ever on Lost, in ” Through the Looking Glass” ( Season Three). ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

But who knows. Maybe over the next two remaining seasons, Hurley will see Charlie by the Drakes Cakes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

LOST Thoughts: Is it Juliet or Juliette? Please Help, Won’t You?

This isn’t a ” What is the Smoke Monster?” or other cool mystery on the show question. But I need to know the answer to this because it is …just…ahhh! Is the character played by Elizabeth Mitchell on Lost named Juliet or Juliette?

If you go to the ABC site, in the show’s discription it is spelled Juliet. But on my Season 3 Soundtrack CD, there is a song called ” Juliette is Lost”.

So, if anyone has the definative answer, please let me know. I keep changing my blog everytime that it’s different in books and other sites. I might start being as skitty as Daniel Faraday if this is not resolved. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And come to think of it …is it ” Shepherd” or ” Shepard” or …..” Shephard” ..or ” Sheperd”….

(Played by Elizabeth Mitchell)

Happy LOST Thought of the Day: Juliet telling Sawyer that they were building a runway for aliens.

LOST Thoughts: Sawyer Nickname Origin # 19

During Charlie’s attempt to get help for Jack in the cave in, Sawyer tells him Kate and ” Muhammed” (Sayid) were in the jungle and that he’d go look for them.

Now, “Muhammed” , could be refering to a popular and commonly used name by people in Arabic nations , a nickname generating tool utilized by James ( see Sawyer Nickname Origin # 5 ).

But maybe he calls Sayid that nickname after Boxing Heavyweight Champ, Muhammed Ali (formally known as Cassius Clay) because, as far as island fighers go ” He is the Greatest” and Sayid is ” so pretty!” ) ๐Ÿ˜‰ ( But then again, aren’t they all on Lost ! ๐Ÿ™‚ )

LOST Video : LOST ’76

Lost, if it was cast circa 1976 and at the helm was Quinn Martin.

How stellar would the ABC team be in ” Battle of the Network Stars” if this happened? “Look out, NBC and Robert Conrad! You’re going down, turkeys!” ( Wow! How old am I?)
