I was listening to "Red Red Wine" by UB-40 on the radio today, and they cut out the reggae rap section! You know, the "Red red wine you make me feel so fine, You keep me rocking all of the time" part! I was infuriated! That's the best part of the song! That's like playing Paul McCartney's "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey" and cutting out the Admiral Halsey part. Or playing "Are You Lonesome Tonight" and cutting out Elvis' long drawn-out metaphor about the world being a stage. Okay, so it's not really like the second one. But it is like the first one. And it is an outrage.
Speaking of outrages, did you know that the song "Red Red Wine" was originally by Neil Diamond? That sort of takes away the coolness factor of that song, huh? What's that? Who's Neil Diamond? He's the guy who sings "Sweet Caroline."
