Oh, Ozzy Osbourne, I guess I was about 16 when this came out? That doesn’t seem right, but numbers don’t lie. I feel like I’ve know this song all my life, but 16 isn’t really that old, so basically I have. It’s too bad I was so worried about your demonic personage back in the day, Ozzy Osbourne. Maybe if I’d known you as the mumbling bumbler of “The Osbournes” I wouldn’t have been so scared to seek out your music as a kid. Because every time I hear one of your songs, I’m always captivated by your voice. Maybe I’m just attracted to it because as a kid your music was purported to be dark and dangerous and this is my way of flirting with the dark side. Who knows, Ozzy Osbourne, but I’m just glad I wasn’t so scared that I didn’t listen to ANY of your music. That would be REALLY scary.
