BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989
“The Time Warp” is a song featured in the 1973 rock musical The Rocky Horror Show and in the 1975 film adaption The Rocky Horror Picture Show, as well as a dance performed during the chorus of the song of the same name. The song is both an example and a parody of the dance song genre in which much of the content of the song is given over to dance step instructions. The dance is one of the major audience-participation activities during screenings of the film and performances of the show. It has become a popular song beyond the reaches of the film and show, and is often played at dances and weddings.
In 1989 The Rocky Horror Picture Show was released on CD for the first time to coencide with the 15th Anniversary of the films release. “The Time Warp” was given a fresh remix and included on the soundtrack as a bounus track. The song was also released on a special 12″ maxi-single by Ode Records.
On October 26, 2010 the cast of GLEE performed the song as part of a Glee episode dedicated to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, dubbed as “The Rocky Horror Glee Show”
