There are actually two versions of the 1992 remake: The 3:48 version starts with Ozzy Osbourne singing "You can't feed the hungry, you can't talk Shakespeare to a monkey..." The 4:00 version starts with female vocals (presumably Kim Basinger) singing "You can't argue with death. You can't break a burly sailor's neck. You can't drink lava from plastic glasses..." There is also a Steve 'Silk' Hurley remix (5:32 duration) The song's lyrics deal with things that cannot be done (some are outlandish, some can be done, but have a high amount of difficulty). After Basinger and Osbourne detail these things, the chorus comes in with the title hook. In 2003 C.C.Catch covered "Shake Your Head" and released as single, which peaked at #8 in Norway.
