Can someone explain why AC speaks of the Black Widow as male instead of female? There has to be some deeper reason other than a glaring oversight/ignorance on AC's part.

Do you really think that AC is that stupid?
oversight/ignorance does not necessarily equal stupidity.

obviously someone on the team that wrote the song knew what was up, since the gender is addressed properly in vp's speaking part.

I'd guess more attention was being paid to entertainment value and/or AC's alcoholism...

Why does Alice like dating women who poison him?

I think that it has to do with the "story" thread that runs through "Along Came A Spider." The "Black Widow" turns out to be....Alice. Schizo + Gender Bending = Laff Riot.

Some tunes off of "Along Came A Spider" are pretty good. I like "Killed By Love."

"I'm 18" was the most popular song on the jukebox in my high school's senior lounge.

Trivia: John Lydon (aka "Johnny Rotten") sang along to AC's "I'm Eighteen" for his audition to join the Sex Pistols. It was playing on the jukebox.

I love the riff on "No More Mr. Nice Guy." One of my favorite songs.


I always liked "Be My Lover" - the studio version is extra cool because duriing the penultimate drum flourish before the end of the song, you can hear the drummer drop a stick. You can hear it hit stuff as it falls.


The reason that I am an Alice fan is that we share the same birthday....he's a few years older than me, however.
