For the record

Every week, Entertainment Editor Nick Margiasso will put one of our fine USF staffers on the musical hot seat for a Q & A. It may be informative, it could be disturbing but it definitely will be interesting.

Oracle: It’s our round … at the bar and at the jukebox; what’ll you have?

Prof. Spottke: Cranberry juice, straight up. I’m usually the d.d. And on the juke would be “Ice Cream Man” by David Lee Roth, guaranteed to satisfy!

Oracle: What is the best soundtrack for English Majoring?

Prof. Spottke: Anything from WFLZ. Any of those songs would be perfect for correcting grammar.

Oracle: Who wins in a fight: Whitney “Crack Down” Houston or Prince?

Prof. Spottke: Prince wouldn’t stand a chance. Whitney is “Every Woman,” that’s a lot of strength.

Oracle: What would your hit single be called, and what kind of music is it?

Prof. Spottke: I’m not sure of the name, but it’s definitely heavy metal. Something that relieves my stress as I dance wildly around campus — hey, it’s my beat.

Oracle: Which album has most influenced your youth?

Prof. Spottke: Any of those ’80s love songs nearly ruined my teenage years. Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares to You” comes to mind first. It’s a good thing Alanis Morrisette set me straight in the ’90s.
