This brief revival is in remembrance of Warren Zevon, who died of lung cancer last Sunday, September 7th, at the age of 56. He's gone, but he kindly left us his music.

Weirdest Fanboys You've Ever Seen
(to the tune of Desperadoes Under the Eaves)

I was shoppin' in the Megagamer's Yoyogi store,
I was tryin' to make myself believe my luck,
I was thinkin' of the rumors that were flyin',
All the Broken Bird CD's they have left in stock,
I'm gonna buy 'em up.

And when Hayasaka meets me at the counter,
I will ask her for her autograph and then
I predict that I'll end up in traction,
The envy of my friends.

Ha! Don't that girl look angrily at me,
Ain't she gonna break a bone or two or three,
Don't we seem the weirdest fanboys you've ever seen,
Waitin' for the idol of our dreams?

Still wakin' up in the mornings with helpless sighs,
And I'm tryin' to find the girl that did delight me,
With the beauty of her voice and hair and eyes,
Don't that girl look angrily at me.

I was shoppin' in the Megagamer's Yoyogi store,
I was listenin' to some customers call me dumb,
They said dumb, dumb, duuuuumb.....
...Run away...
(Run away from outraged actresses, run away...)

(sigh...rest in peace, Warren)
=============================================
Desperadoes Under the Eaves
Warren Zevon


I was sitting in the Hollywood Hawaiian Hotel
I was staring in my empty coffee cup
I was thinking that the gypsy wasn't lyin'
All the salty margaritas in Los Angeles
I'm gonna drink 'em up

And if California slides into the ocean
Like the mystics and statistics say it will
I predict this motel will be standing until I pay my bill


Don't the sun look angry through the trees
Don't the trees look like crucified thieves
Don't you feel like Desperados under the eaves
Heaven help the one who leaves


Still waking up in the mornings with shaking hands
And I'm trying to find a girl who understands me
But except in dreams you're never really free
Don't the sun look angry at me


I was sitting in the Hollywood Hawaiian Hotel
I was listening to the air conditioner hum
It went mmmmmm..
... Look away...
(Look away down Gower Avenue, Look away...)
