O h God, we’ve gone too far... pull back, pull back! Must...not...look at...Steven Tyler’s...ridiculous...codpiece. Okay, so it’s not actually a codpiece (I looked), but c’mon, the guy is wearing suspenders and a scarf for a belt. In case you younger readers are wondering, no, that was never in style, excepting circus clowns. Your self-respecting rodeo clown, by the way, wouldn’t be caught dead wearing that. As for Rag Doll, you ask? It took four people to write it. Apparently, no one person wanted to take the blame. The US 7-inch single features “St. John” on the B side, which is the better track (Tyler took the credit for that one all by his lonesome). It also features “Available as a cassette single” on the cover, which is a bizarre bit of marketing. I mean, really, if I’m looking at the sleeve, chances are I’m thinking of buying it (or making sure that’s not really a codpiece). Why tell me I can buy it as a cassette single instead? What’s next: Lays regular potato chips featuring a banner that says: “You know, we make a low fat version of this too, you fat lard?” Which reminds me, this is also available as a twelve-inch with three different versions of Rag Doll. You fat lard.
