KISS ‘Room Service’ for 10 hours!

Riddle me this…

Question:  What possibly can be worse than being trapped on an airplane for 10+ hours while you travel overseas?

Answer:  Being subjected to listening to KISS’s Room Service song 10 times is what!!!

When you have a long plane ride obviously you prepare well for a variety of activities such as do some work, read a book, play videos games and listen to the airplane audio track, of course.  So after I was done doing some work, after reading for a bit and then after playing a few video games it was time to chill and listen to the airplane’s classic rock station on my headphones and relax.

Don’t get me wrong, I love KISS for the most part and have for a long time but this song, which I had never heard before, was the most juvenile attempt at lyrics ever.  I mean seriously, like ever!  The music itself was groovy but even on the first playing of the song I was somewhat applauded at the lyrics.  By the tenth time it played on my 10+ hour flight I was transformed!  Transformed from applauded to a closet-secret lover of this horrible song.

As soon as I came home guess what the first thing I HAD to do?  Take a nap?  No.  Feed the dog?  No.  Get on YouTube and share ‘Room Service’ with the wife?  Yes!

And as she so eloquently put it, “because you had to suffer, I have to suffer?”.  Well, “Yes, of course” was my answer and in the true spirit of sharing I proudly present to you, my loyal KevinNeal.com readers, KISS’s ‘Room Service’:

 “Room Service”

I’m feelin’ low, no place to go
And I’m a-thinking that I’m gonna scream
Because a hotel all alone is not a
Rock and roll star’s dream

But just when I’m about to shut the light and go to bed
A lady calls and asks if I’m too tired or if I’m just to dead for

Room service, baby I could use a meal
Room service, you do what you feel
Room service, I take the pleasure with the pain
I can’t say no

My plane’s delayed and I’m afraid
They’re gonna keep me waiting here till nine
Then a stewardess in a tight blue dress says
“I got the time”

But just as I’m about to take my coat and get my fly
She says “Oh please”, she’s on her knees
And one more time before I leave I get some

Room service, baby I could use a meal
Room service, you do what you feel
Room service, I take the pleasure with the pain
I can’t say no, no

In my home town, I’m hangin’ ’round
With all the ladies treatin’ me real good
A sweet sixteen lookin’ hot and mean says
I wish you would

But just as I’m about to tell her “Yes, I think I can”
I see her dad, he’s getting mad
All the time he knows that I’m in need of

Room service, baby I could use a meal
Room service, you do what you feel
Room service, I take the pleasure with the pain
I can’t say no

Room service, baby I could use a meal
Room service, you do what you feel
Room service, I take the pleasure with the pain
I can’t say no, I can’t say no

Room service, baby I could use a meal
Room service, you do what you feel
Room service, you take the pleasure with the pain
I can’t say no

Room service, well maybe baby, room service
