    Default Black and Blue

    I dig this tune lately.

    The lyrics are just okay. No double-meaning there...do it til your black and blue...okey dokey,,sounds like fun.

    But Ed's guitar is so dirty on this tune...I think the words kind of go. I remember when they released it as the first single, I wasn't happy. But it has grown on me.

    My all-time favorite. Sammy's singing, the combo of the music and lyrics, and Ed's guitar "shudder" at the end. Thinking about it makes me wet.

    Well, I hate "Blargh! & Blue". An awful song with poor lyrics.

    Could not agree more. For some unknown reason I've been listening to this song nearly once a day for the past month or so. I haven't given two shits about it since it was released and now I love it!

    This songs biggest downfall is the title and theme. "Do it til we're black n blue"??? It's so stupid. Could that be more juvenile? I've always thought that this song could have been something far more mainstream with better lyrics and a whole different theme.

    Ed's guitar is fantastic and I love Alex on this tune. It's great song that could have been so much more.

    Agreed, JTHT. But I will say this, Sammy's vocal on it is awesome - He shows his pipes in this one. The lyrics fit in a way, but I wish the song had a cooler theme.

    I totally agree about Sammy's singing...he really sounds great on this one. It's those cheesy, stupid, amateur lyrics that kept this song from being one of their most recognizable Sammy-Era songs.
