FISH STORY



"If the real thing dont do the trick
No, you better make up something quick
You gonna burn burn burn burn it to the wick
Ooooooohhhh, barra barracuda." HEART

"Ann and Nancy Wilson, also known as the singing duo
Heart, found themselves caught in something they say
doesn’t reflect their political beliefs. Their ‘70s
classic "Barracuda" was used, without their consent,
as the official theme for Palin’s campaign. Neither
the group, Universal Music Publishing or Sony BMG
were asked permission for the use of the tune, but
the two sisters say that they wouldn’t have granted
it anyway.

" ...It was written in the late '70s as a scathing
rant against the soulless, corporate nature of the
music business, particularly for women...There's
irony in Republican strategists' choice to make use
of it there."

"The duo requested that their song would no longer be
used to promote Sarah Palin’s image. But it looks
like Heart actually did Palin a favor, as she seems
to only choose the song for its title, a little
something to remind her of her high school years,
when Barracuda was her nickname. On a closer look,
the lyrics are anything but flattering for a woman in
her position: “You lying so low in the weeds,I bet
you gonna ambush me, You’d have me down down, down,
down on my knees, Now wouldn’t you, barracuda?”

"You kind of want to send a thank-you note to the big
hearted girls who wouldn’t allow these words being
associated with you, now wouldn’t you, Mrs. Palin?"

Barracuda

So this aint the end -
I saw you again today
I had to turn my heart away
Smiled like the sun -
Kisses for real
And tales - it never fails!

You lying so low in the weeds
I bet you gonna ambush me
Youd have me down down down down on my knees
Now wouldnt you, barracuda?

Back over time we were all
Trying for free
You met the porpoise and me
No right no wrong, selling a song-
A name, whisper game.

If the real thing dont do the trick
You better make up something quick
You gonna burn burn burn burn it to the wick
Ooooooh, barracuda?

Sell me sell you the porpoise said
Dive down deep down to save my head
You...i think you got the blues too.

All that night and all the next
Swam without looking back
Made for the western pools - silly fools!

If the real thing dont do the trick
No, you better make up something quick
You gonna burn burn burn burn it to the wick
Ooooooohhhh, barra barracuda.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh.
