All You Need is Love Sneek Peek

Since we had to cancel last week, this week you deserve a sneek peek!! Due to some real life issues with a few of the dancers, we are doing our Love show the 18th and 25th! Night Player show will be on March 4th.

Here is a sneek peek of the show. You may remember this song from the movie Beavis and Butt-head Do America.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Love Rollercoaster

Here are some song facts for you to enjoy...

(from Wikipedia)

"Love Rollercoaster" is a song by American funk/R&B band Ohio Players, originally featured on their 1975 album Honey. It was composed by Beck, Bonner, Jones, Middlebrooks, Pierce, Satchell, and Williams. It was a number-one U.S. hit in January 1976, and became a Gold record. In Canada, the song spent two weeks at number two.

"Love Rollercoaster" was covered by the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1996, recorded and produced by Sylvia Massy. This version includes original rap-based verses and additional lyrics provided by guest female backup singers, as well as the horn section being replaced with an approximation played on kazoos.

An animated music video was made for the song, featuring Beavis, Butt-head, and the band riding an amusement park roller coaster, intercut with scenes from the film. The song is played early in the movie as well, when Beavis and Butt-head arrive in Las Vegas. In the dance hall scene, a fictional funk band is shown performing the song live (the one appearing on the background of the single cover).

Although the song became a crossover hit, peaking at No. 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart and at No. 22 on the Mainstream Top 40 chart, it did not enter the top 10 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart (peaking at No. 14) and it failed to enter the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

The band has never performed the song live.
