Via Sarah Mayberry comes this video, which isn't a video so much as it is a still with THE MOST AMAZINGLY RAUNCHY SONG EVAH:
Can a hero or heroine sing this song in a future romance? Because it would be epic. I think this should be the soundtrack to a book trailer VERY SOON, if rights and permissions could be aquired. Oh, lawdy.
If you're curious, Durwood Douche was the stage name for pianist and performer Dick Shreve. From his bio:
Dick Shreve has been writing music since the 1940’s, both the serious beautiful songs and the dirty ditties. He published his first Durwood Douche song “Why Me God (Everybody’s Fucking But Me)” in 1979 on vinyl, with side B utilizing the same song in a hysterically funny munchkin voice. The lyrics are explicit but performed with a style and grace that’s quite unexpected. At that time his publishing company was named Aching Loins Publishing. Later on it was changed to Eclecstasy ERP/Publishing.
He continued writing and expanding his catalog of songs, then in 1997 he published a CD called “Everybody’s F#*cking But Me”, that was composed of some of them. All consisted of the superb quality and style as found in the first vinyl. This CD was professionally, but anonymously, recorded by some of the West Coast's finest jazz and studio musicians and vocalists.
In 1999, Dick Shreve made a deal with Roadrunner Publishing in Europe, for the rights to re-release his CD (in Europe). They released it under the name of “Big, Banned and Blue”, claiming it was songs from the 1940’s era, which of course it wasn’t. They also released a couple of singles off their version of the CD.
Hope your weekend is full of things that make you laugh and shake your head.
