Run DMC vs Aerosmith - Walk this way

Backstroke lover always hidin' 'neath the cover
'Till I talked to my daddy he say
He said, You ain't seen noting
'Till you're down on a muffin
Then you're sure to be a-changin' your ways

I met a cheerleader, was a real young bleeder
All the times I can reminisce
Ah the best thing lovin'
With her sister and her cousin
Started with a little kiss, like this

See-saw swingin' with the boys in the school
With your feet flyin' up in the air
Singin' hey diddle-diddle with the kitty in the middle
You be swingin' like you just didn't care

So I took a big chance at the high school dance
With a missy who was ready to play
Was it me she was foolin'?
'Cause she knew what she was doin'
Taught me how to walk this way
She told me to

Walk this way, talk this way
Walk this way, talk this way
Walk this way, talk this way
Walk this way, talk this way
Ah, just give me a kiss
Gimme some, gimme some, gimme some, yeah





School girl sadie with the classy kinda sassy
Little skirt climbing way up her knees
There was three young ladies in the school gym locker
When I noticed they was lookin' at me

I was a high school loser
Never made it with a lady
Till the boys told me something I missed
Then my next door neighbour
With a daughter had a favour
Took me just a little kiss, like this

See-saw swingin' with the boys in the school
With your feet flyin' up in the air
Singin' hey diddle-diddle with the kitty in the middle
You be swingin' like you just didn't care

So I took a big chance at the high school dance
With a missy who was ready to play
Was it me she was foolin'?
'Cause she knew what she was doin'
Told me how to walk this way
She told me to

Walk this way, talk this way
Walk this way, talk this way
Walk this way, talk this way
Walk this way, talk this way
Just give me a kiss

Television - Marquee Moon

I remember
how the darkness doubled
I recall
lightning struck itself.
I was listening
listening to the rain
I was hearing
hearing something else.
Life in the hive puckered up my night,
the kiss of death, the embrace of life.
There I stand neath the Marquee Moon Just waiting,
Hesitating...
I ain't waiting
I spoke to a man
down at the tracks.
I asked him
how he don't go mad.
He said "Look here junior, don't you be so happy.
And for Heaven's sake, don't you be so sad."
Well a Cadillac
it pulled out of the graveyard.
Pulled up to me
all they said get in.
Then the Cadillac
it puttered back into the graveyard.
And me,
I got out again.

A life-changing tip from a superhero, a bible character and Emmet from The Lego Movie





Hollywood actor Chris Pratt starred in one of this year’s biggest films – ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’. He said his audition with film studio Marvel went something like this:

Marvel: “Hi, we’re Marvel”

Chris: “I’ll do anything”

Marvel: “Yes, you will”

This dialogue is similar to how many conversations go – especially when one party thinks the other holds all the power.

For example, a small business owner wanting to make a sale to a large multinational:

“We’re a dream customer for you”

“I’ll do anything”

“Yes you will. And you’ll charge us less than you charge everybody else. And we’ll take longer to pay.”


Or your boss calling you in, to give you some work:

“I’m your boss”

“I’ll do any time”

“Yes you will. Tonight at 8pm is best for me”


Or if you’re interviewing for a new job at a prestigious company:

“We’re the ideal job for you”

“I’ll do anything”

“Yes you will. Some of it might not match your core strengths. And we’ll pay you a bit less than you were wanting”

I take it some of these sound familiar?

And who do you think gets what they want from conversations like this? You or the other guy?

The secret to speaking as their peer is to recognise that you have something valuable that others can’t offer, and focus on that. Don’t let subservience be your differentiator.

So, at your next meeting with someone very important: 



- bring them value that others can’t 
- teach them something they find useful 
- share relevant stories and experiences
- ask what their priority is, and 
- prove you can help them achieve it.

This isn’t a new idea. When David fought Goliath, he didn’t do it hand-to-hand. He’d have lost. Instead, he stood a distance away, and threw stones at him – a skill he’d been mastering for years.

Yes, your customer/boss/interviewer might appear more important than you. Just as Marvel is bigger than Chris Pratt. But he’s soon appearing in the new Jurassic Park film. He voiced the lead character in the chart-topping Lego Movie. He’s obviously got something special about him. And so have you. Make sure others see it.

Action point


Find your unique thing – something others perceive valuable that they can’t get anywhere else.

Then work out the best way to bring this up in important conversations, so you position yourself as their peer, not their subordinate.

13th Floor Elevators - You're gonna miss me

You're gonna wake up one morning as the sun greets the dawn
You're gonna wake up one morning as the sun greets the dawn
You're gonna look around in your mind, girl, you're gonna find that I'm gone

You didn't realize
You didn't realize
You didn't realize
You didn't realize
You didn't realize

Oh you're gonna miss me, baby
Oh you're gonna miss me, baby
Oh you're gonna miss me, child, yeah, yeah

I gave you the warning
But you never heeded it
How can you say you miss my lovin
When you never needed it

You're gonna wake up wonderin'
Find yourself all alone
But what's gonna stop me, baby?
I'm not comin' home
I'm not comin' home
I'm not comin' home

Frank Sinatra - I've got you under my skin

I've got you under my skin
I've got you deep in the heart of me
So deep in my heart that you're really a part of me
I've got you under my skin

I'd tried so not to give in
I said to myself this affair never will go so well
But why should I try to resist when baby I know down well 
But I've got you under my skin

I'd sacrifice anything come what might 
For the sake of having you near 
In spite of a warning voice that comes in the night 
And repeats, repeats in my ear
Don't you know you fool
You never can win 
Use your mentality, wake up to reality 
But each time I do just the thought of you 
Makes me stop before I begin 
Because I've got you under my skin

I would sacrifice anything come what might 
For the sake of having you near 
In spite of the warning voice that comes in the night 
And repeats how it yells in my ear 
Don't you know you fool
Ain't no chance to win 
Why not use your mentality
Get up, wake up to reality
And each time I do just the thought of you 
Makes me stop just before I begin 
Because I've got you under my skin
And I like you under my skin
