Who are Greta Garbo and Rudolph Valentino?

One of my recent song discoveries is the song from America entitled “Right Before Your Eyes”. Thanks to YouTube, I was able to hear songs that aren’t playing that much on the radio.

Right Before Your Eyes was written by Ian Thomas and was introduced on his album in 1977. It was then recorded by America in 1982 and was their second single in their album, View from the Ground. Imagine, I was only 1 year old when this song aired. Cool stuff from the oldies, I should say!

In the lyrics of the song, the names “Rudolph Valentino” and “Greta Garbo” are mentioned in the chorus several times. I became interested and did some researches on who are these two people. Maybe for those who have lived in that era can answer this question.

So who are they, really? For those who heard the song for the first time and would like to know if these two prominent names really exist, then here’s what Wikipedia has to say,

Rudolph Valentino (May 6, 1895 – August 23, 1926) was an Italian actor who starred in several well-known silent films including The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, The Sheik, Blood and Sand, The Eagle, and The Son of the Sheik.

Greta Garbo (18 September 1905 – 15 April 1990), born Greta Lovisa Gustafsson, was a Swedish film actress and an international star and icon during Hollywood’s silent and classic periods.

So… now we know!

Here’s a video of Right Before Your Eyes by America with lyrics included. I chose to embed this video because it shows a story play of the song.

Review of Music Slots Games

For those who enjoy playing slot machine games, often the themes of certain games are what they find appealing. In fact, some players choose which slot machine games to place on the theme. Sometimes the theme is something in which they are interested such as music. Popular music from today is often used in slot machine themes as well as musical trends from the past.

For pop music fans, one slot machine game at the iphone casino that holds a lot of appeal is the X Factor slot machine. Based upon the popular music TV show, X Factor, this slot machine has incorporated different aspects of the show into the game. For example, the free spin feature has been dubbed boot camp which can provide players with free spins. In the game, stars can be collected which when they amount to 10, advance players to the live final where they can potentially win even more money. The bonus round features the judges from the show. When three or more judge logos appear, a multiplier is applied to that wager made on that winning payline. With three logos, the bet is increased 20x while four logos increase it 50x. Five icons provide the biggest payout with 200x. Not only do pop fans find the theme fun but they love the many chances it provides to win big.

Some slot machine games focus on past music such as with the game, Vinyl Countdown. Revolving around pop culture of the 1950’s, this machine uses vinyl records in its theme. The game has a total of 9 paylines scattered on five reels. The symbols on these reels all come from the 1950’s. One is a male singer which bears a striking resemblance to rocker Elvis Presley. A female with the characteristic ponytail is another symbol. The wild symbol in the game is a jukebox symbols which can appear on the three middle reels. The glittering ball is the scatter symbol which can lead to further winnings even if not on an activated payline.
