Ben: 100 Writings / 100 Opening Guitar Hooks

various, random creative expressions / writings, inspired partially by 100 popular songs (songs that somewhat begin with a leading hook of a guitar.)

Day 15:

“Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want” (1984) by the Smiths

"Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want" (1984) by the Smiths


R.I.P. James Gandolfini

I WANT the entire Sopranos TV series on Blu-Ray, seasons one to seven.

I want to see Tony shoot an innocent man in cold blood
I want to see Carmela throwing dishes at him, because of his infidelity
I want to see Paulie and Chris argue over who’ll tip the waiter.

I want to see some Capitano get capped while scoffing his cuisine Calamari in some Calabresian cafe
I want to see some guinea goomah with golden legs, a strutting walk that breathes sex, and a flick of her brunette hair that silences the entire room.
I want to see Tony make an offer no one will refuse

I DON’T WANT Coro, with cockney gits who just came back from the East End markets talking about their muva's bruva's dog's luva's neighbour's gossiped affair.
(“Wit’ all doo respect – Coronation Street – can get the fuck outta here”)

I WANT spaghetti marinade sauce on my gabagool
I want a pinch of basil and a pinch of oregano
I want a recipe for disaster

I want dark sunglasses
I want a black Armani suit with thin stripes
I want Frank Sinatra playing in the background, while me and my stooges kick down this fucking door!

I DEMAND that each of my Blu-Ray discs have a shiny metallic shine
I demand that each of my Blu-Ray discs have its own shiny metallic case
I demand that all my shiny metallic Blu-Ray cases be put in a big shiny metallic case box
and
I demand a shiny metallic Sony Blu-Ray player to play my shiny metallic Sopranos Blue-Ray’s.

I need a hitman that can do the job
I need a lawyer that can pull out all the stops
I need a witness – morté!

I NEED the entire Sopranos TV series on Blue-Ray, seasons one to seven - please, please, please.
