Name That Lyric Episode LXXIX: Should I Be Proud Or Ashamed ?

So, one of the categories on Jeopardy last night was Beverly Hills, 90210...And I got every fucking one right !!!

On with the game.

We have a winner from last week !!!! The lovely and talented Jeff correctly identified(and provided a link to a performance of)

"I'm putting tinfoil up on the windows
Lying down in the dark to dream
I don't want to see their faces
I don't want to hear them scream"

from "Splendid Isolation" by Warren Zevon. Bravo, Jeff, bravo !! And the lovely and talented Miss Ann Thrope gets an honorable mention for knowing that it was a WZ song.
You should hear the version on "Learning To Flinch", his live acoustic album-it's fantastic !

Onto this week's clue:

"Some folks say that I'm egotistical
Hell I don't even know what that means
I guess it has something to do with the way
That I fill out my skin tight blue jeans"

Good Luck, Crimestoppers !!!!

Lessee...I was about, oh, 13?? My mom loved Mac Davis ~swoon~ he was hot. Well, she thought he was hot.

It's Hard To Be Humble from the album of the same name.

Now pardon me while I go scrub my mind with steel wool.

PS: In the future, please pick less obnoxious songs. Kthx.
