2/19/2010 - Jonathan Coulton

You knew this was coming. If I was excited yesterday about it and had Paul and Storm yesterday, then you knew that Jonathan Coulton was going to be today, didn't you? So, yes, today I am going to drive all the way down to San Diego with four teenagers/just left their teens guys and go to a swanky jazz club to see Jonathan Coulton and Paul and Storm. This should be pretty fun. Good thing I'm driving because that back seat may be a little crowded for 3 full grown guys. Other good thing is I have some JoCo CD's ready to listen to on the way down. Hope they don't mind.

So anyways, I was thinking which song I wanted to feature today. I wanted to stay away from some of the mainstays like "Code Monkey" and "Tom Cruise Crazy". So I decided to look around even more. I was looking at the Masters of Song Fu submissions where JoCo does a Paul and Storm style parody, but I can't post that one for profanity's sake. I try to keep it pretty clean. So then I decided to look on youtube for videos made by Spiffworld. Like I said before, I enjoy his stuff so I watched a few videos and finally decided that today's song will be:

"DANCE, SOTERIOS JOHNSON, DANCE"

I hope you enjoy it:



And if you see the guy in the gotee and no hair tonight at Anthology, stop by and say hi and tell me to pick better songs in the future. :)

Lyrics
A voice like honey, no one else could fill his shoes
The time and the weather, the headlines and the local news
He lays it down with perfection and grace
He’s done by noon, he goes home to his place
Where he sleeps and he waits for the night

Just before midnight he gets up, gets out of bed
A can of Red Bull, a tab of X to clear his head
He shoots his cuffs, now he’s headed downtown
Picks up one life, puts another one down
And his body hums and the music’s playing

Dance, Soterios Johnson, dance
It’s a cold world, nobody understands
The feeling you can’t keep inside
Go, Soterios Johnson, go
All the club kids are watching your glowstick glow
With the light of a truth you can’t hide
That the news is the news, but the dance goes on forever

He shimmies his shoulders, undulates his slender hips
Arms akimbo, Jaggeresque, he pouts his lips
A crowd has formed, they are gathering round
Just to hear the incredible sound
Of a genius smashing expectations

Dance, Soterios Johnson, dance
It’s a cold world, nobody understands
The feeling you can’t keep inside
Go, Soterios Johnson, go
All the club kids are watching your glowstick glow
With the light of a truth you can’t hide
That the news is the news, but the dance goes on forever

He’s dancing, he’s a machine
Like no one, that they’ve ever seen
He’s flying, he’s living a dream

The magic fades as the sun comes up, it’s time he goes
A hand on his shoulder, he turns around: it’s Teri Gross
He takes her hand, spins her body just so
He holds her close, they will never let go
As the room explodes, they dance like angels

Dance, Soterios Johnson, dance
It’s a cold world, nobody understands
The feeling you can’t keep inside
Go, Soterios Johnson, go
All the club kids are watching your glowstick glow
With the light of a truth you can’t hide
That the news is the news, but the dance goes on forever
