http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbJqswLi3uE&feature=related I'd forgotten what a great song this is and listen closely to the lyrics, they're very good..whatever your thoughts on Ozzy himself. Personally, I love the guy! Enjoy!

Personally, I never listened to Ozzy. (I love his wife.) So I listened to this song...I really liked it too. I may have to listen to some more Ozzy before I can tell you if I really like him. I'm not too much, never have been, heavy metal, rock and roll. Give me golden oldies, country...

Oh yes, I remember The Osbournes on MTV. If that didn't set reality TV back! I loved that show. Wouldn't have missed it. Oh yeah, Ozzy wasn't too technologically-minded. I remember he froze a laptop up and got his assistant all frustrated because he just kept hitting the keys. Sharon is actually a very shrewd businesswoman and saved Ozzy when she took over managing his career, or what was left of it, after Black Sabbath booted him out for his destructive and drunken behavior.

I only watched the Osbournes on MTV a couple of times. I didn't get in to it (not much on MTV), but you could tell who watched out for that family...Sharon. I was cheering for the daughter, I think her name is Kelly, on Dancing with the Stars. And I love Sharon as a judge on America's Got Talent. So I like two out of four? Guess I missed something, because both of the situations you two described sound great!

Omigod! Yes, I remember the bubbles. Did you see the episode when Ozzy was filming a Christmas special with Jessica Simpson and the two of them were standing next to a snowman? Ozzy took the snowman's nose (a carrot) and stuck it below the snowman's belt, so to speak. Jessica just stood there with her mouth open. I also remember the one airing of Osbournes: Reloaded on Fox TV. The show was pretty lame, but it had a couple of funny segments. I had tears in my eyes when I watched Ozzy and Kelly working the drive up window at a fast-food burger joint. At one point, Ozzy dropped the guy's burger out the window while he was trying to hand it over. And, of course, there was this -- Littlest Osbournes: http://youtu.be/_8u-IWWHvfs

Nice vid thank you for that - you're right, the great rockers do come up with some amazing ballads now and again. Those are the ones that normally get me to notice the rest of their music funnily enough - though I do remember Ozzie with Sabbath, who could not have noticed him lol :)

Aerosmith springs to mind with ace ballads. Ozzie is amazing isn't he? Despite living in America for a lot of the time, he still has his wonderful Brummie accent. Gotta love the guy!

Its that dry sense of humour that gets me everytime lol - another band that surprised me with a ballad was the Stranglers Golden Brown - I love that song and still struggle to reconcile it with the Stranglers punk stuff - never much liked punk rock but had a big rethink with that one :) Hazel O'Connor and Will You is another one

I've seen the Stranglers sing that at the Preston Guild Hall. Brilliant stuff! Long time ago, mind!

OZZY! I remember this new band called Black Sabbath performing at the college I was attending back in 1970. (I think that was the year.) It was like...who are these guys? Oh...YEAH! ROCK ON! Blast from the past -- this is the Ozzy I remember: http://youtu.be/1jdAwXV7eVM

"Paranoid!" Excellent choice my friend! I've seen Black Sabbath with a guy fronting them who I can't remember the name of. It wasn't Ozzy and it wasn't the late, great Dio either. Oh dear, can you help me out here? It was at the Manchester Apollo in the 90s and I was stood right in front of Tony Iommi and his huge cross that mesmerised me throughout the gig. His guitar-playing wasn't bad either!

Was it Tony Martin in the 90s? Black Sabbath has had a lot of lead singers over the years. Of course, we all remember Ozzy and Dio (whom some peeps even think was the original singer). In fact, I just found out recently Ian Gillian was with them for about a year. Ian, I know from Deep Purple (another fave), but I swear I don't remember him singing with Sabbath.

Tony Martin, he's the guy I've seen! Very good singer actually and I have a couple of the CDs he's singing on. Thanks for jogging my memory!

not too sure if you got my last posting, I had the little screen come up with 'diagnostic problems' So I will repeat what i typed the last time. I had forgotten about this song and how brilliant it was. I loved the words and the video when it was released. When i was on youtube i also looked at 'changes' the duet with his daughter Kelly. Another brilliant song and video. i am a big fan of Ozzy's and worried about him especially after his accident. Haven't heard much about him lately, hope he is ok. Thanks for reminding me about his talent and diversity. thanks again for sharing.

I watched the "Changes" video on YouTube as well. I thought about including that link instead of the one I chose but anyway..they're both ace songs. What "accident" is this then? I know a few years ago he had an accident on a Quad Bike and survived. I swear Ozzy's got 9 lives!

that is the accident i was thinking of, but he hasnt been in the news lately, I just wondered if he was ok. I suppose Ozzy being Ozzy, we would soon hear if he wasn't ok!! bless him !!

Hi Janey..Great song!! I too LOVE Ozzie. One of my girl pals has a dalmation named Ozzie and whenever I go to visit with her she has Black Sabbath on! Piss on these people who say Ozzie coppied John Lennon's Imagine with this song...I don't think so at all..Hey, just this morning I read that Ozzie is going to to a TV commercial with Justin Beiber..now that should be funny!!! Thanks for posting this from one dreamer to another! J

"Imagine" never entered into my head whilst listening to the song. Aren't some people the jealous type lol. I bet Mr Lennon would've loved it if he'd still been alive.

Nice. Never heard of this song before though. It's ok for me but I'm really not an Ozzy fanatic.

Well, at least the song hasn't damaged your hearing. I like your avatar, very cute.
