Δεν μπορώ να κρίνω αντικειμενικά αυτό το τραγούδι : είναι από τα πρώτα παιδικά μου ροκ ακούσματα – ο Alice ήταν το πρώτο μου “ίνδαλμα”.
Είμαι ως εκ τούτου καταδικασμένος να το θεωρώ …φοβερό.
Μεταξύ μας δεν νομίζω ότι αυτό απέχει πολύ απ’ την πραγματικότητα. Ιδίως όταν ακούω την απίστευτη, μπροστά απ’ την εποχή της παραγωγή του “θεού” Bob Ezrin [Lou Reed, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Peter Gabriel etc].

I can’t be objective with this song : it’s one of the first rock songs I heard in my childhood – Alice was my first “idol”.
I am therefore forever doomed to think of it as …awesome.
Between you and me, I don’t think that’s far from reality.
Especially when I hear this incredible, ahead of its time [1973] production by the “god” Bob Ezrin [Lou Reed, Pink Floyd, Deep Purple, Peter Gabriel etc].

❝ Candy everywhere, got chocolate in my hair
Aching to get me
Stickly sweet suckers in the Halloween air
Aching to get me
Saint Vitus dance on my morals tonight
Aching to get me
Aching to get me, get me oh
Take it to the doc, I guess he ought to know
La, la, la, da
Which ones can stay , which one gotta go
He looks in my mouth and then he starts to gloat
He says me teeth are O.K.
But my gums got to go
Oh oh
I come off the gas but I’m still seeing spies
Aching to get me
I can see them all through a glassy pair of eyes
Aching to get me
De Sade’s gonna live in my mouth tonight
La, da, da, da, da
And the rotten tooth fairy is satisfied
La, da, da, da, da
Aching to get me, get me oh ❞



Stay Safe!

  1. I love Alice Cooper. I still listen to him. It’s like 50 years that I’ve been listening to him. He’s a good guy, as well. He has the Solid Rock Teen Center in Phoenix, Arizona where teens can hang out and do art and music. What I like about Cooper’s approach is there’s no strings attached other than following the code of conduct. It’s a safe place teens can be teens.

Happy to hear your thoughts
