Werewolfers Travel 1960s and 1970s Music Memory Lane

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. We hope you liked Jack’s brand new little photo saga yesterday, and I can assure you that it was Jack’s work, and not that of G.G. Howling; although Jack said he was inspired by G.G.’s storytelling prowess.

Talking of storytelling, we thought we’d keep the action going with the next episode of the comedy satire epic Werewolf of Oz: Fantasy Travel by Google Maps.

I think this episode has some nice lines referencing musical groups such as the Rolling Stones, Beatles, Mamas and Papas and Doors; and their musical titles such as Exile On Main Street and California Dreamin‘; but it is mainly to set up an Italian Job jokey line in the next episode. Enjoy!:

Chapter 86.  Doors and Beatles Play Live in the Italian Job 

The 1970s were before Kerang-Kerrang was built, which was probably why it had such a surreal psychedelic atmosphere. Graveyardish backstreets reminiscent of Black Sabbath’s early album covers crossed gaudy technicolor main streets that exiles from the 1960s would have rolled right into without noticing a stone unturned.

We thought we’d lost the Grunginator, and strolled through the 1970s as if California Dreamin’ on a winter’s day; until a shot shattered my subconscious slumber. I turned around and saw the Grunginator hot on our tails.

We ducked into a hip looking jive dive by the name of The Italian Job. The Doors were on stage playing Strange Days, and I could relate to the sentiment of the song!

We found an empty table in a candlelit corner. Jim Morrison started singing My Eyes Have Seen You, which made me paranoid. I blew out the candle, hoping the Grunginator wouldn’t see us if it entered. I felt more at home when the Doors ended their set with The Changeling.

The Beatles took to the stage after the Doors. I hoped they would Help my mood, but just after they started playing I’ll Get You the Grunginator entered.
