The Locomotion versus the Time Warp

Share this merde!

Have you ever noticed the similarity between Little Eva’s Locomotion and Richard O’Brien’s Time Warp from the Rocky Horror Picture Show?

It came to me as I was listening to the Locomotion (yes, again, I admit, the Veggie Tales version – it’s strangely catchy). And it struck me, like a hot kiss at the end of a wet fist – she’s describing the Time Warp!

Of course, Little Eva’s Locomotion was released nearly fifteen years before O’Brien’s Time Warp.

I think that O’Brien must have listened to a lot of Little Eva as a tyke.

Compare:

“You gotta swing your hips, now. Come on, baby.
Jump up. Jump back. Well, now, I think you’ve got the knack.”

To:

“It’s just a jump to the left, And then a step to the right
With your hands on your hips, You bring your knees in tight.”

I’m just sayin’
