No One Out Quotes The Donald

Views: 123/1464
Added: 12/31/2015

Did you know that George and Neal have written speeches for so many great politicians? Some of their best work includes:

“I cannot tell you how grateful I am -- I am filled with humidity.” - Gib Lewis, speaker of the Texas House

“It's time for the human race to enter the solar system!” - Dan Quayle, former U.S. Vice President on the concept of a manned mission to Mars

“We are not without accomplishment. We have managed to distribute poverty equally.” - Nguyen Co Thatch, Vietnamese foreign minister

“I do not like this word "bomb." It is not a bomb. It is a device that is exploding.” - Jacques le Blanc, French ambassador on nuclear weapons.

“China is a big country, inhabited by many Chinese.” - Charles de Gaulle, former French President

Neal and George considered writing speeches for Donald Trump, but realized they could not improve upon them.

 

No One Out Quotes The Donald - "Do you mind if I sit back a little? Because your breath is very bad." - Not by George and Neal - Much as we'd like to claim credit for this gem, The Donald came up with it all on his own.

We Made Bon Jovi Cool

Views: 188/2100
Added: 01/03/2016

In early 1986 Bon Jovi was working on their album Slippery When Wet. Because their previous album wasn't as successful as they had hoped, they hired professional songwriter Desmond Child as a collaborator. He helped write some of the biggest hits from the album, including "You Give Love A Bad Name" and "Livin' on a Prayer". The other Billboard Top 10 hit from the album, "Wanted Dead or Alive" was very nearly a disaster. Written by Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, the song wasn't originally quite as cool as it turned out to be. Luckily George and Neal stepped in just in time and recommended that the lyrics be changed to "I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride, I'm wanted dead or alive, Wanted dead or alive" from the original "I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse I ride, three year olds want me, want me to get off their ride." We felt most people would agree that guitar toting outlaws riding motorcycles is much cooler than hogging the mechanical horse at the local five and dime.

 

We Made Bon Jovi Cool - The original album cover is also something we recommended be changed.  But in hindsight, maybe Bon Jovi should have kept it...

I Had Another Dream

Views: 70/433
Added: 12/12/2018

In 1940 George and Neal wrote and released a song entitled Dreaming of a Purple Christmas. The song was mildly successful and in 1941 Irving Berlin wrote a parody called White Christmas. Oddly, the parody went on to garner more success than the original. In 1948 Doye O'Dell recorded Blue Christmas, a direct statement in support of colored Christmas songs. Over the next few years a whole slew of Christmas songs were released, each one promoting segregation of holiday colors. Tensions rose and things finally came to a head in the 1960s with the extremely controversial 1966 Grateful Dead song, Rainbow Christmas. On December 24, 1967 Martin Luther King Jr. spoke to a throng of millions during a Christmas Eve march to the Capital Plaza Mall.

"I had another dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their Christmas snow, but by the contents of their presents. I had another dream that one day Christmases will be celebrated with snow of all colors; red, green, white, blue, black, gray, and yellow. OK, maybe not the yellow snow, but you see where I'm going with this..."

 

I Had Another Dream - Dr. King's "I Had Another Dream" speech isn't quite as well known as his previous speeches, but it was instrumental in promoting a multi-colored Christmas.  Today you can even buy multi-colored Christmas lights.
