Subject: HOMICIDE: Life On the Street
From: pantleg
Date: 01 Nov 98 - 03:19 PM

I'm not a huge blues enthusiast, but I like watching NBC's Homicide: Life On the Street on Friday nites. It seems like every week they have some cleverly plot-related old school blues tune. Last week's was something about "you can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover" Did anyone see this episode and know the artist/song?

Is this the song, Pantleg?

You Can't Judge a Book
by Willie Dixon ©1964, Hoochie Coochie Music

(as recorded by by Bo Diddley)


You can't judge an apple by lookin' at the tree
You can't judge honey by lookin' at the bee
You can't judge a daughter by lookin' at the mother
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover

Oh, can't you see -- whoa, you've misjudged me
I look like a farmer but I'm a lover
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover

( Aww, come on in here closer baby, hear what else I got to say --
You got your radio turned down too low -- turn it up! )

You can't judge sugar by lookin' at the cane
You can't judge a woman by lookin' at her man
You can't judge a sister by lookin' at her brother
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover

Oh, can't you see -- whoa, you've misjudged me
I look like a farmer but I'm a lover
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover

Aw, how am I doin', baby?

You can't judge a fish by lookin' in the pond
You can't judge right from lookin' at the wrong
You can't judge one by lookin' at the other

Oh, can't you see -- whoa, you've misjudged me
I look like a farmer but I'm a lover
You can't judge a book by lookin' at the cover

I've watched "Homicide ..." since day one, even while living in Fairbanks AK, when it came on at 1 am Sunday night, and one of the things I've really enjoyed is it's music ... most down and dirty blues. Sure wish they would do an album of all the music played during the show. Jenny

Click here for a list of links about the show. Click here and click here for lists of the songs used in the show. I've never heard of the show - it sounds interesting.

Joe- Thanks for the links-the music is an integral part of the show & I can't tell you how many times I have wanted to know the names etc of the songs that are used so brilliantly. In SoCal it is on on NBC at 10pm on Fridays. I try not to miss it, in my opinion it is way better than Law & Order (Who writes their cop dialog anyway?) And folks, please excuse the typos and misspelling today-I had a very bad alergic reaction and am on mind numbing drugs...and to think that in my youth I used other stuff to acheieve this very stupid state :-}

Around 1961 I heard John Hammond sing a song with the chorus, "I might look like a farmer, but I'm a lover, You can't judge a book by looking at its cover."

Anybody have the rest of the song? It must be an old blues or rock and roll song. Thanks.

Dion Dimucci did a great cover of this on his 'Sit Down Old Friend' album. The young rocker turned solo acoustic artist for a while.

"Don't get freaked out by the way I look,
don't judge a book by it's cover.
I'm not much of a man in the light of day,
but at night I'm one hell of a lover.
I'm just a sweet.........."

Dr. Frank'N Furter,
Rocky Horror Picture Show.

I saw the Rocky Horror show on stage for the first time last week and was blown away by the experience.

The audience was as rehersed as the cast from what I could tell. The interplay and backchat was superb.

Used to love going along dressed (or is that undressed) and armed with props for Rocky Horror......

I'm still waiting for "interactive Sound of Music" to come over here... it sounds like fun too......

I know that this is probably inexcusable thread creep, but it ran in the 'Classic' in Dublin for 16 years, every Friday night.
Funny thing about it was that if you were dressed 'normal', you looked out of place.
I always liked the water pistols!!!

A group of us went from my other halfs place of work (Police Headquarters !!!) WE were SO out of place.

In the interval the toilets were uni-sex the girls used the cubicles , the boys the urinals.

At the start when it rained the front 10 rows of the audience were soaked.

To be honest there were some bodies that should have remained covered up but what the hey it was agreat night out.
