From the film Hedwig and the angry inch - The origins of love.

I did see that movie ages ago. I was so high I kept passing out so I only really remember the parts with Hedwig as a child. That song was great I'll
have to grab a copy and give it another watch, I think my brother still has his on VHS.
The one song I always wanted to do as a drag performance was the Ingrid Steeger number from the 1970s German comedy series Klimbim.
The song is called "Der Schneeman macht mir Heiss" (The Snowman makes me hot).
But there's so many things to get and do.
I mean where does one find a snowman like that in Africa in December?
All we get is fake snow, foreign trees and a colonial imagery of seasonal displacement.
So why not satirize the commercial and imperialistic sham?
I was never a particular fan of Houston's, but I know many "ladies" were.
Many tears are flowing for this great talent.
I did like certain songs, and often thought her voice was as versatile as Eddie Van Halen's guitar riffs - a small sense of self-worth amplified into
a symphony of self-expression!
It was a "stuff you" of self-assertion in an era of oppression and limited options.
But wait - weren't we playing "air guitar" to our headbanging; wasn't that like lip-synching?
Anyway, a tribute to Whitney, from Phuket: "One moment in Time".
You go girl - we'll always miss and remember you!
Whitney Houston - I will always love you (and lyrics):
