Anything Goes est une chanson diffusée sur Galaxy News Radio dans Fallout 3 et sur Diamond City Radio dans Fallout 4.


C'est la chanson phare de la comédie musicale Anything Goes, par Cole Porter (1934). Cette version est celle chantée par Porter, dont les enregistrements datant de 1934 furent réenregistrés avec un nouveau fond sonore par Vince Giordano et les Nighthawks en 2004, pour l'album "It's De-Lovely - The Authentic Cole Porter Collection".

Cette comédie musicale fut écrite au milieu de la Grande Dépression des années 30 aux États-Unis. Les millionnaires étaient ruinés, mais pas tout le monde, et tout le monde aimait encore un bon divertissement.

Des échos de cette comédie musicale peuvent être entendus dans certains films, notamment Blazing Saddles and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.


Times have changed,
And we've often rewound the clock
Since the Puritans got a shock
When they landed on Plymouth Rock.

If today
Any shock they should try to stem
'Stead of landing on Plymouth Rock,
Plymouth Rock would land on them.

In olden days, a glimpse of stocking
Was looked on as something shocking,
But now, God knows,
Anything goes.

Good authors, too, who once knew better words
Now only use four-letter words
writing prose.
Anything goes.

If driving fast cars you like,
If low bars you like,
If old hymns you like,
If bare limbs you like,
If Mae West you like,
Or me undressed you like,
Why, nobody will oppose.

When every night, the set that's smart is intruding
In nudist parties
In studios.
Anything goes.

When Missus Ned McLean (God bless her)
Can get Russian reds to "yes" her,
Then I suppose
Anything goes.

When Rockefeller still can hoard en-
Ough money to let Max Gordon
Produce his shows,
Anything goes.

The world has gone mad today,
And good's bad today,
And black's white today,
And day's night today,
And that gent today
You gave a cent today
Once had several chateaux.

When folks who still can ride in Jitneys
Find out Vanderbilts and Whitneys
Lack baby clo'es,
Anything goes.

When Sam Goldwyn can with great conviction
Instruct Anna Sten in diction,
Then Anna shows
Anything goes.

When you hear that Lady Mendl standing up
Now does a handspring landing up-
On her toes,
Anything goes.

Just think of those shocks you've got,
And those knocks you've got,
And those blues you've got,
From those news you've got,
And those pains you've got,
If any brains you've got
From those little radios.

So Missus R., with all her trimmins,
Can broadcast a bed from Simmons,
'Cause Franklin knows
Anything goes.
