Science Fiction/Double Feature
Richard O'Brien Lyrics


Michael Rennie was ill the day the earth stood still
But he told us where we stand
And Flash Gordon was there in silver underwear
Claude Rains was the invisible man
Then something went wrong for Faye Wray and King Kong
They got caught in a celluloid jam
Then at a deadly pace it came from outer space
And this is how the message ran

Science fiction (uh uh) double feature
Doctor X (uh uh) will build a creature
See androids fighting
Brad and Janet
Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet
Oh oh oh oh
At the late night double feature picture show

I knew Leo G. Carrol was over a barrel
When Tarantula took to the hills
And I really got hot when I saw Janette Scott
Fight a triffid that spits poison and kills
Dana Andrews said Prunes gave him the runes
And passing them used lots of skills
But when worlds collide said George Pal to his bride
'I'm gonna give you some terrible thrills'
Like a

Science fiction (uh uh) double feature
Doctor X (uh uh) will build a creature
See androids fighting (uh uh)
Brad and Janet
Anne Francis stars in (uh uh) Forbidden Planet
Oh oh oh oh
At the late night double feature picture show
I want to go oh oh
To the late night double feature picture show
By R.K.O oh oh
To the late night double feature picture show
In the back row oh oh
To the late night double feature show

Michael Rennie was ill
The Day the Earth Stood Still
But he told us where we stand.
And Flash Gordon was there
In silver underwear,
Claude Rains was the Invisible Man.
Then something went wrong
For Fay Wray and King Kong.
They got caught in a celluloid jam.
Then at a deadly pace
It Came From...Outer Space.
And this is how the message ran:

Science fiction, double feature
Doctor X will build a creature.
See androids fighting Brad and Janet
Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet
Wuh uh uh oh o-o-oh
At the late night, double feature, picture show.

I knew Leo G. Carrol
Was over a barrel
When Tarantula took to the hills.
And I really got hot
When I saw Jeanette Scott
Fight a triffid that spits poison and kills.
Dana Andrews ate Prunes
Gave him the runes
And passing them used lots of skills.
But When Worlds Collide,
Said George Pal to his bride,
"I'm gonna give you some terrible thrills,"
Like a...

Science fiction, double feature
Doctor X will build a creature.
See androids fighting Brad and Janet
Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet
Wuh uh uh oh o-o-oh
At the late night, double feature, picture show.
I wanna go
Wuh oh o-o-oh
To the late night, double feature, picture show.
By RKO,
Wuh oh o-o-o
To the late night, double feature, picture show.
In the back row,
Oh oh o-o-oh
To the late night, double feature, picture show!

@MmeDesgranges Not for me. To live in O'Brien's mind would be my utopia.

MmeDesgranges

His lifestyle's too extreme ..

Salve Regina

This is freaking magical. What a brilliant man.

David Fleming

yup - purest class

Hey Rae

He is literally one of my favorite people
I love how he changed it to fit his voice now because his vibrato is beautiful

Nathan Lor

Its his movie

Aniseed Wolf

Actually, I am sure he was the singer in the original film/movie. The lips featured in the film/movie was lip synching to Brian's voice. He purposefully sang it in a high voice in the film/movie :)
