Name that Lyric: Episode LIX:I Saved My Special Lady's Life Last Night...

I know, I'm just as shocked as you are. I always figured I was a massive pussy, but I stepped up last night.

I was sitting on the couch, watching baseball Tonight, waiting for the Mets highlights(they won, by the way, 6-2, John Maine won his 10th game, has an E.R.A. under 3, and he's not on the All-Star team- LaRussa's a prick), when I heard a blood curdling scream come from the bedroom.
Now, here is where I am sure you expect to hear that I ran out into the parking lot, but i did not. I jumped up and ran TOWARD(or TOWARDS ? I'm never sure which) the sound !! What the fuck was I thinking ?

I ran into the bedroom, and there was My Special Lady being menaced by a cockroach the size of an Escalade(it had squeezed threw the fan in the bathroom ceiling-tricky little bugger). In all honesty, she's probably lucky that it was not a spider, because I probably would have pushed her into it's waiting maw, and run away.

But, I was valiant, I grabbed my cane(yes, I actually own a cane, it was part of my wedding attire-along with tails,a top hat, and a tie dyed cummerbund and bow tie) and beat the beast back until I could drop a dresser on it. Then , the peril was over. I buried the corpse in the yard(and suffered another flashback to the "wasp" incident of my youth), and we went to sleep.

When's my parade ?

Okay, on with the game.

We have a winner from last week !!!!! The lovely and talented chlorinejenny correctly identified

"There goes my baby
She knows how to Rock'n'Roll
She drives me crazy
She gives me hot and cold fever
Then she leaves me in a cool cool sweat"

from "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" by Queen !!!! Brava,chlorinejenny,brava !!!!!

Now onto this week's lyric:

"The sky fell over cheap Korean monster-movie scenery
And spilled into the reservoir of the crushed capsule hotel
Between the Disney abattoir and the chemical refinery
And I knew I was in trouble but I thought I was in hell"

Good luck, Crimestoppers !!!

oh man, I can't remember what song this is, but I know it's Elvis C. I can hear his sneering delivery of "Disney abattoir and the chemical refinery"

My man Elvis. Tokyo Storm Warning(s) I forget if it plural or singular.

(PS: Costello not Presley)

YOU have a lyric game -- no wonder you always win mine. I thought you just had a movie game. I had no idea about this one. I don't listen to this Costello fellow. Although, oddly the last part sounded like I've heard it before.
