"Nobody rocks over there" — in Europe — "They're all so... cerebral."

"They don't get down..."



"They over-intellectualize, they cerebrate, they ratiocinate excessively."

Not so "cerebral" anymore, as Cologne shows. Muzzies are fixing that. No excessive ratiocination for them. Who needs Hegel and Habermas when you can have the Prophet?

Can you imagine a guest pulling out cigarette and lighting up on a talk show nowadays?

Try listening to BAP's 'Verdamp Lang Her' if you want to hear a real Euro-Rocker.
Super hook that really pulls you in. And you don't need to understand German to appreciate the song.

Here's a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oAMsCCSNVc

BTW, the song is about a son visiting his father's grave seeking advice, consolation, and perspective on how to deal with all life's disappointments.
'Verdamp Lang Her' translates into 'Too Damn Long'.

"Cerebrate"?, "ratiocinate"!? She's one of THEM!

The video of her singing on that show preceding the interview, demonstrates her prodigious artistry. Cerebral at a gut level. One of a kind and missed.
Your post needs that link to be complete.

Bob Boyd - or the host offering to light it for you. Sometimes as Johnny Carson came back from commercials, the camera would catch him stubbing out a cigarette in an ashtray behind him.

Ratiocinate was Cavett.
