Stan from Houston, TxJust to let everyone know, the Balinese was totally destroyed by Hurricane Ike on Saturday 9/12/08 along with many other buildings in Galveston
Bill from St. Paul, MnIn the late 70's and early 80's, I played in a couple of bands that played a wide variety of rock tunes. Two of these bands only played one ZZ Top song, and interestingly enough, both bands played this song. A great early ZZ Top tune that packs quite a punch. Go for the original vinyl mix - not the 90's remix verion with the drums cranked up (IMHO, virtually unlistenable).
The lyrics for "Mary, Did You Know?" were written by Christian singer and comedian Mark Lowry, after his pastor asked him to write a Christmas musical for their church. Southern gospel musician Buddy Greene later added music to his words.
The song "Sadeness" by Enigma (the one with the chanting monks), got its name from the French novelist Marquis de Sade, who believed sex had to be painful in order to be pleasurable - thus the word "sadism."
