Throwback Friday: Rocky Horror Picture Show “The Time Warp”

Rocky-Horror-Picture-Show

Ok, so in reality it’s Sunday night, and I’ve technically missed both Halloween and Throwback Friday, but let’s just pretend for the sake of this post.  Besides, “The Time Warp” is always a timely tune!  I’m so singing this at my next karaoke party!  :roll:

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a 1975 British musical comedy film that parodies science fiction and horror films. Still in limited release 34 years after its premiere, it has the longest-running theatrical release in film history. It gained notoriety as a midnight movie in 1977 when audiences began participating with the film in theaters across the United States. “Rocky Horror” is the first movie from a major film studio, such as 20th Century Fox, to be in the midnight movie market. Widely known by mainstream audiences, it has a large international following and is one of the most well known and financially successful midnight movies of all time. In 2005, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

The film, considered a cult classic, is an adaptation of the British musical stage production The Rocky Horror Show. Richard O’Brien, author of the stage show, was assisted by Jim Sharman in writing the screenplay. The movie introduces Tim Curry and features Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick along with cast members from the original Kings Road production of the play first performed in the Theatre Upstairs at the Royal Court Theatre in 1973.

LET’S DO THE TIME WARP AGAIN~

Here are the words so you can sing along!

RiffRaff:
It’s astounding;
Time is fleeting;
Madness takes its toll.
But listen closely…

Magenta:
Not for very much longer.

RiffRaff:
I’ve got to keep control.
I remember doing the time-warp
Drinking those moments when
The Blackness would hit me

RiffRaff:
And the void would be calling…

Transylvanians:
Let’s do the time-warp again.
Let’s do the time-warp again.

Criminologist:
It’s just a jump to the left.

All:
And then a step to the right.

Criminologist:
Put your hands on your hips.

All:
And bring your knees in tight.
But it’s the pelvic thrust
That really drives you insane.
Let’s do the time-warp again.
Let’s do the time-warp again.

Magenta:
It’s so dreamy, oh fantasy free me.
So you can’t see me, no, not at all.
In another dimension, with voyeuristic intention,
Well secluded, I see all.

RiffRaff:
With a bit of a mind flip

Magenta:
You’re into the time slip.

RiffRaff:
And nothing can ever be the same.

Magenta:
You’re spaced out on sensation.

RiffRaff:
Like you’re under sedation!

All:
Let’s do the time-warp again.
Let’s do the time-warp again.

Columbia:
Well I was walking down the street just a-having a think
When a snake of a guy gave me an evil wink.
He shook-a me up, he took me by surprise.
He had a pickup truck, and the devil’s eyes.
He stared at me and I felt a change.
Time meant nothing, never would again.

All:
Let’s do the time-warp again.
Let’s do the time-warp again.

Criminologist:
It’s just a jump to the left.

All:
And then a step to the right.

Criminologist:
Put your hands on your hips.

All:
And bring your knees in tight.
But it’s the pelvic thrust
That really drives you insane.
Let’s do the time-warp again.
Let’s do the time-warp again.
