Discussion: What's your favorite major song from The Rocky Horror Picture Show?

I had to pick huh even though I know full well what the options are. I just don't like Rocky Horror.
i'm hoping the other rocky fans just haven't voted yet. come on, people. show some love. give yourselves over to absolute pleasure. etc.
RHPS rocks my socks. It's one of those things that you love or hate. I love it! I've played Janet, Magenta, Rocky, Crim, Trixie and have been a Tranny. Not to mention the times I've been a SuperSexy Audience member. :) Our cast website is www.thezenroom.com. (The VTC, Seattle Cast)
Anyway, the movie is lots of fun and (imo) people that don't go to see it in the theatre with a cast and audience participation are missing out on a good time.
Janet gets boring after awhile. The floorshow is always fun though. I like to Magent or Rocky. =)
I played Magenta in the Margate Living Room cast. Which is exactly what it sounds like. Even though, at different points, it was in my sister's bedroom and Preston's bedroom (that boy is *hot* in drag. I mean, he's half-asian, and he's just gorgeous)
I voted Time Warp because I have more memories attatched to it, but I'm also awfully fond of the dance mix of sweet transvestite sung by Giles :-)
Seeing it in a theater is definitly worth doing, although I wouldn't make it your first time seeing the movie ever.
When I went to the 25th Anniversary Con in Vegas he was there for the VH1 Karaoke thing. After he sang a song, my friend and I had just walked in, the crowd started chanting "More Head! More Head!" And he sang Sweet-T. It was awesome.
I think I have that too.
I can't remember, were they ever in the same production at the same time?
and i picked "Wild and Untamed Thing" because that song OWNS and so does Tim Curry! =D

I picked "There's a Light" because it earworms me at random times ;)
I always feel all cool when one of my polls makes it. I'm such an attention whore.

Where was that option?? That song ROCKS live!
i picked timewarp though. but it was hard to decide!!
"Hot Patootie" is the song he sings. Or are you referring to "Eddie's Teddy?"
Most people find the dinner scene boring, so maybe thats why the song was left out. =(
(our cast trannies do the "Denton! Denton!" cheer from Shock Treatment during the song. hee hee)

Perhaps it's because they had steam on Monday, steam on Tuesday, steam on Wednesday.....
Josh Woodward · 16 years, 10 months ago
I killed that option. I had to nuke one to make room for the "huh?" option, so i picked the shortest title. :)
feel like you need a good reason to put on a teddy and garters? rocky horror!
that movie inspiered more than one of my halloween costumes. dude.

I've dressed up as Columbia a couple of Halloweens. Including joining Carey and a few other girls who were dressed up as Wizard of Oz characters. That was surreal.
I've gone to the theater in costume twice- once as Columbia and once as Magenta. And I've seen the stage show. In Fredneck, of all places.
I picked "Rose Tint My World" btw. Hard decision.
i wanted to go to the stage show in fredneck a few years ago but kept forgetting to get tickets.
i've seen it in the theater a few times but never actually dressed up. i should do that one of these days, now that i'm in a city where they show it on a regular basis.
and yes. that halloween was mightily surreal. :)

... is the obvious one, but I didn't pick it.
Because "Dammit, Janet" earworms me at the strangest times.
I also like Touch-a Touch me and Sweet Transvestite. So choosing was rather random. :D
Jill Leopardina Früdman · 16 years, 10 months ago
I picked Science Fiction Double Feature cos it's my favourite to perform...that, and it has some of the best callbacks...
"I know Leo G Carrol was [f*cking a sparrow] when Tarantula [took LSD]" LICK IT, B*TCH!"
Oh, and the recording of Daphne Rubin-Vega singing in from the Broadway OCR is *phenomenal*. Rowr.
we say, "how do you cum off your lips?" to "when Tarantula took to the hills" then "Lick it B*tch!"
Nick Collins · 16 years, 10 months ago
I had to choose Sweet Transvestite, cause that's the one I know how to play on guitar, although I am a fan of all the songs. That is, it is my favorite from the movie, but I loved the Broadway version of Time Warp when Joan Jett as Magenta was singing it, that made me happy.
nate... · 16 years, 10 months ago
I picked "sweet transvestite".... that was the first one I heard.... on the dr. demento show when I was a little kid. :)
The movie is cute... but... never lived up to that song. heh.
Though, tim curry is a god.
Pentecost Andrew! · 16 years, 10 months ago
Dude, did I miss it, or was Rocky's "I just got born" song not on there?
Man, I hate how that damned song gets cruelly shafted. It's not even on the movie soundtrack. Feh.
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 16 years, 10 months ago
How many of you have seen the version with Superheroes on it? I did the first time I saw it but not since then.
our cast has a reel with Super Heroes on it. :) i'm not sure if i know of a cast that doesn't have it out here in the Washington/Oregon area...
it's also added as bonus material on more recent dvd's/videos...
Brian Dinsky · 16 years, 10 months ago
the shitty thing is 20th century fox pussied out and so the dvd doesn't allow you to watch the full length movie with both superheroes andonce in a while placed into their respective places in the movie. i sorta understand, since they chopped up a fair amount of the scene where once in a while should have been, which is why it's like 4 different shots of janet getting worried in frank's lab before sex0ring the rockster. even still, the option to watch superheroes at the end without going to the stupid extras menu wouldn't have been the dumbest idea anyone ever had. gotta like that black and white easter egg though.
i don't know if i've ever seen it *without* superheroes...
same here. I didn't even know that was an obscure scene until a couple of years back.
I haven't seen it since adam and I split.... he was in a production of it on campus that year. he did really well... thats where he met his now girlfriend.
Brian Dinsky · 16 years, 10 months ago
BAH, you specified Rocky Horror Picture Show, as opposed to say... the london roxy cast. i prefer that version of sweet transvestive to any version of any song in the movie soundtrack. then again, it's tim curry vs. tim curry. we all win.
Rachel Marie aka RAI · 16 years, 10 months ago
The only song I know is Time Warp... but then again, I've never seen the show.
So.... is that blasphemy?
The only thing I really know about the show is that we're doing Time Warp for my musical theatre group and I'm playing Magenta. Whoever that is. :o)
