My all-time favourite band

When I was 14, I was going to grow up and marry Nikki Sixx.

Damn you to hell, Kat Von D.

My mother worried about the boys in makeup on my wall. If only she'd known the truth ... the truth about which I was only partially aware until I read The Dirt: Confessions of the World's Most Notorious Rock Band.

Really, folks ... it's disturbing stuff. Just when I thought I'd seen and read some of the worst things man can do to man, I read about what Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars and Tommy Lee perpetrated in their heyday.

A summary here can do no justice. I beg of you to read.

Keeping that in mind, I'll be seeing Motley Crue for the third time on Jan. 6.

Brace yourself. In addition to my regular posts, I'll be forcing you into a Crue song a day, starting with my all-time favourite.

Want to sing-along? I'll help with the words.





Plug me in
I'm alive tonight
Out on the streets again
Turn me on
I'm too hot to stop
Something you'll never forget
Take my fist
Break down walls
I'm on top tonight

No, no
You better turn me loose
You better set me free
Cause I'm hot, young, running free
A little bit better than I used to be

Cause I'm alive
Live wire
Cause I'm alive
I'm a live wire
Cause I'm alive
Live wire
Cause I'm alive
I'm a live wire

I'll either break her face
Or take down her legs
Get my ways at will
Go for the throat
Never let loose
Goin' in for the kill
Take my fist
Break down walls
I'm on top tonight

No, no
You better turn me loose
You better set me free
Cause I'm hot, young, running free
A little bit better than I used to be

Cause I'm alive
Live wire
Cause I'm alive
I'm a live wire
Cause I'm alive
Live wire
Cause I'm alive
I'm a live wire


Come on baby
Gotta play with me
Well I'm your live wire
You better lock your doors
I'm on the prowl tonight
Well be mine tonight

Cause I'm alive
Live wire
Cause I'm alive
I'm a live wire
Cause I'm alive
Live wire
Cause I'm alive
I'm a live wire


Come on be may baby
Come on tonight
Come on be may baby
Come on tonight
I'll give you everything
You want inside
Plug me in, plug me in
I want you
Come on tonight
