** I DO NOT OWN THIS SONG ** Song from the Musical: The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Super Hereos - Performed by Brad (Barry Bostwick) & Janet (Susan Sarandon) Lyrics:: I've done a lot, God knows I've tried To find the truth, I've even lied But all I know is down inside I'm bleeding. And Super Heroes come to feast To taste the flesh not yet deceased And all I know is still the beast is feeding. And crawling on the planet's face Some insects called the human race Lost in time, lost in space And meaning.

The worst bluescreen ever in a film. Check out the flying motorcycle! No, that's not Will Ferrel, it's Barry Bostwick (the Mayor in Spin City). Footage from 'Megaforce' (circa 1982). This film felt like it was never going to end... hence the remix with themesong.

** I DO NOT OWN THIS SONG ** Song from the Musical: The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Rose Tint My World - Performed by Columbia (Nell Campbell), Rocky (Peter Hinwood), Brad (Barry Bostwick) & Janet (Susan Sarandon) Lyrics :: It was great when it all began I was a regular Frankie fan But it was over when he had the plan To start a-working on a muscle man Now the only that gives me hope Is my love for a certain dope Rose tints my world keeps me safe from my trouble and pain. I'm just seven hours old Truly beautiful to behold And somebody should be told My libido hasn't been controlled Now the only thing I've come to trust Is an orgasmic rush of lust Rose tints my world keeps me safe from my trouble and pain. It's beyond me, help me Mommy I'll be good you'll see, take this dream away What's this, let's see Oh I feel sexy What's come over me? Oh here it comes again... Oh I feel released Bad times deceased My confidence has increased Reality is here The game has been disbanded, my mind has been expanded It's a gas that Frank has landed His lust is so sincere.

When a high-powered real estate agent (Barry Bostwick) finds himself accused of scandal and penniless as a result, divorced and his house repossessed, he has no choice but to spend one day in a bread line while he and his increasingly agitated lawyer (Gilbert Gottfried) fight to clear his name. While there, Bostwick chews out a beautiful homeless girl (Kristy Swanson) for asking him if he wanted to pet her hairless cat. However, they soon strike an unpredictable friendship, and when Bostwick finds himself back in the lap of luxury, he cant get Swanson out of his head. But being in the public eye after the scandal, can he afford to be seen with a girl who does yoga in the dumpster? Featuring a soundtrack by The Tubes.
