Saturday 9: Here I Go Again

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: Here I Go Again (1982)

Every Saturday I take time off from written on serious topics to have some fun…

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This song originally appeared on Whitesnake's Saints and Sinners album. Are you feeling more saintly or sinful this morning?
I’m feeling tried saint who goes around tilting windmills.

2) Whitesnake was formed by Brit David Coverdale, who now lives in Lake Tahoe, NV. Have you ever wanted to relocate to another country?
Nope… born and raised Nutmegger.

3) In the song, Coverdale says he "was born to walk alone." Do you enjoy time on your own? Or do you quickly get bored or lonely?
I am mostly alone

4) During the band's 1980s heyday, Coverdale was known for his skintight leather pants. Do you own leather pants or slacks?
Nope. I wouldn’t be caught dead in them. I’m so over weight that I would looked ridiculous in them.

5) What about snakeskin?
Honey… if I dressed in snakeskins there would be a snake left in the state.

6) It's estimated that 20,000 people die of snake bite every year. Approximately 1,000 suffer fatal spider bites. Less than 50 are killed each year by sharks. Considering sharks, spiders and snakes, which do you find scariest?
I not really scared by any of them, but if I had to pick I would say snakes because I usually do not see them until they slither away.

7) In 1982, when this song was popular, the world lost Princess Grace of Monaco. Before she became a royal, she was film star Grace Kelly. Have you ever seen a Grace Kelly movie?
Yes, but it was a very long time ago.

8) Speaking of movies, the top-grossing film of 1982 was ET: The Extra Terrestrial. Have you seen it?
Oh yes, I saw it when it first came out in the theaters.

9) Random question: How many timepieces will you have to reset when we spring ahead this weekend?
Hmm… let’s see. The bedroom clocks, the light timers, the thermostats, my watches, my car, my oven, my microwave… I think the total is over a dozen, I think now you know why I hate DST. 


  1. Your answers made me laugh!

  2. I have lots of clocks, too. I think we average three in each room of the house. I'm glad the computers, etc. change by themselves.

  3. I hate it too! Just leave it ON all the time, OK? sheesh

    And the snake pants answer really made my day! Thank you!

  4. I know what you mean about the leather pants. What a waste of money those are.

  5. Does anyone remember the episode of Friends with Ross wearing leather pants? Hysterical. I wouldn't be caught dead in them, either!
