Music by Walter Becker and John Beasley Narration by Michael Keaton

I had no idea this existed. Thanks so much for sharing.

That's why we're here! I knew about it, but I've never had an actual copy of the cd.

Or cassette tape, not to age myself too much.

  • Thought this was telling...Walter brought enough to a song or project as a producer that he would have been within his rights to request a songwriter's credit. I also thought it was telling that for the particular song discussed here, King in a Catholic Style off of the 1985 China Crisis album Flaunt the Imperfection, the thing that Walter⁠—renowned guitar and bass player⁠—brought was a keyboard riff to really tie the song together. Easy for me to forget that Walter was no slouch on keys, and did the majority of his composing, both solo and with SD, on a keyboard/piano.
  • By Walter Becker & Larry Klein He made me laugh He made me cry He smoked his stoggies in bed But I'm all right I'm all right I've been lonely before I asked the boy for a few kind words He gave me a novel instead But I'm all right I'm all right I've been lonely before It's fine, it's OK It was wrong either way I just wanted to say There isn't much fun when you're drinking wine He got drunk, he fell down He threw a few of my things around But I'm all right I'm all right I've been lonely before I'd like to believe healthy cigarettes But I have to conceive that wherever you are You're still driving my car Sticks and stones break my bones But tears don't leave any scars So I'm all alright I'm all alright I've been lonely before Mm, I'm all alright I'm all alright I'm all alright Yeah He played solitaire in bed Used to blow bubbles in bed He sang Christmas songs in bed
