Shotgun Messiah has been a favorite band of mine for all the years since I first heard their songs. Their music is probably not to everyone’s taste, but I like it. I still have the cassette tape of the album this song is from, along with all their other albums on CD. When they all went their separate ways, the bass player/singer/songwriter, Tim Skold, became the most prominent. I have his albums, too.

Now, this song seems to be telling about a scary night while out parking in a secluded place with a date. They hear a noise, and for a moment they freeze, as in stop what they are doing to listen, and getting frightened.

You remember those Urban Legends, where something bad happens to the couple when they are out like that?

Have you ever been in a situation like this? I have. If I hear a strange noise, I freeze for a minute, too.

“Nervous”, by Shotgun Messiah, is on their early album, “Shotgun Messiah”, and was released in 1989 on the Relativity label.

Nervous Lyrics

Outta gas in the dead of night
Is it for real
Hot lust turns to stone cold fright
Say how you feelMe and my date
Down on lovers lane
Gettin’ so late
Is there something waitin’ out in the rainNervous
Tickle your spine, can’t get rid of the feelin’
You’re nervous
Freeze frame of mind ’cause you know it’s for real
And you’re nervousShut up, did you hear that sound
Is it for real
Too quiet, is there someone ’round
Say how you feelMe and my date
And we’re parked alone
Gettin’ so late
“Do you want to hear something really scary?”Nervous
Tickle your spine, can’t get rid of the feelin’
You’re nervous
Freeze frame of mind ’cause you know it’s for real
And your…
Nervous
Voices in the nite, vanish in the shadows
Have you ever heard a dream talking
Well I did, I did, I did(-Solo-)Wake me gently from this dream
Nothing’s what it seemsNervous
Tickle your spine, can’t get rid of the feelin’
You’re nervous
Freeze frame of mind ’cause you know it’s for real
And you’re…
Nervous
Tickle your spine, can’t get rid of the feelin’
Freeze frame of mind ’cause you know it’s for real
And you’re nervous

Burn – Song Lyric Sunday – Burn/Fire/Flame

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2019/04/06/mick-jagger-will-never-stop/

***

Today for SLS we are to find songs with the subject of ‘burn/fire/flame’. Thanks, Jim!

There were so many songs to choose from! I kept looking until I found this one. I hadn’t heard it before. I first saw this cover version of Ellie Goulding’s song, “Burn”, and I loved it! Then I listened to the original, and it’s great, too.

I got interested in the artists/musicians in the cover performance, and they have a lot of songs.

From Wiki:

Postmodern Jukebox, also widely known by the acronym PMJ, is a rotating musical collective founded by arranger and pianist Scott Bradlee in 2011. PMJ is known for reworking popular modern music into different vintage genres, especially early 20th century forms such as swing and jazz.

***

This is done in a Vintage 60s girl group fashion, featuring Robyn Adele Anderson. Their music can be found on Mud Hut Digital and Concord Records.

Note the flaming saxophone! Cool!

***

***

“Burn”, by Ellie Goulding, was released in 2013 from her album, “Halcyon Days”. It was written by Ellie Goulding, Ryan Tedder, Leona Lewis, Gary Kurstin, Noel Zancanella, and Brent Kutzle, and is on the Polydor lebel.

Verse 1]
We, we don’t have to worry ’bout nothing
‘Cause we got the fire
And we’re burning one hell of a something
They, they gonna see us from outer space
Outer space, light it up
Like we’re the stars of the human race, human race

[Chorus]
When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

[Verse 2]
We don’t wanna leave
No, we just gonna be right now, right now

And what we see, is everybody’s on the floor
Acting crazy, getting low go ’til the light’s out
Music’s on, I’m waking up
We start the fire, and we burn it up
And it’s over now, we got the love
There’s no secret now, no secret now

When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

[Bridge 1]
When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, burn
Burn, burn, burn, burn, burn, burn

[Bridge 2]
We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

We can light it up, up, up
So they can’t put it out, out, out

When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
Gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn
We gonna let it burn, burn, burn, burn

[Outro]
When the lights turned down, they don’t know what they heard
Strike the match, play it loud, giving love to the world
We’ll be raising our hands, shining up to the sky

‘Cause we got the fire, fire, fire
Yeah, we got the fire, fire, fire

And we’re gonna let it burn

Funny Ones – Song Lyric Sunday – Radio/DJ/Record/Jukebox

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2019/03/30/what-up/

For today’s SLS, Jim has given us the topic to find songs about Disc Jockey’s (DJs), Radio, Jukebox or Records. Thanks, Jim!

***

I found a couple I’d never heard of before, and are a bit different. The first one is pretty funny, with Steve Allen trying to work with a singing group called the Fat Heads, and they keep interrupting each other. It reminds me of when you’re trying to listen to a song, and the DJ keeps talking over it.

The next one is Joe Walsh, being introduced by the famous DJ Wolfman Jack. They talk a bit, then Joe Walsh sings the song, which is pretty rocking.

This little bit with Wolfman Jack, reminds me of when I used to hear him on the radio, way late into the night. I could pick up radio stations from far away, and he was a favorite to listen to.

***

“The Disc Jockey’s Theme Song,” by Steve Allen, was recorded in 1957, on the Coral label. It was written by Steve Allen. The spoken parts were by Bob Thiele.

***

Sorry, I just couldn’t find the lyrics to this one…

***

“The Radio Song”, by Joe Walsh, was released in 1987, from his album, “Got Any Gum?”. It was written by Joe Walsh, and is on the Warner Bros. label.

***

I like to listen to music

I like the way that it sounds

On the radio

I like to sit in a silent place

When no one’s around

And listen inside it

Inside the silence is a melody

Voices singing harmony

I close my eyes and listen carefully

The silence starts to get loud

It’s like your favorite station

Playing your favorite song

Just like they do on the radio

Inside the silence is a symphony

Every note there is in every key

The music tells me how it wants to be

I help it write itself down

I hear the way that would sound

It’s like your favorite station

Playing your favorite song

Just like they do on the radio

Like they do on the radio

But the radio isn’t on —

On the radio

This is a song I really like from one of my favorite movies, “School of Rock”.

***

“School of Rock – Zach’s Song”, can be heard in the 2003 movie, starring Jack Black. It is also on the movie soundtrack of the same name. Originally written for the movie by Sammy James, Jr. of the band, Mooney Suzuki and Mike White. It was produced by Richard Linklater, Jack Black, and Scott Rudin.

Verse 1: Jack Black]
Baby we was making straight A’s
But we was stuck in a dumb daze

Don’t take much to memorize your lies
I feel like I’ve been a hypnotized

And then that magic man he come to town
(Woo Wee)
He spun my head round
He said recess is in session
2 and 2 make 5
And now baby oh I’m alive
Oh yeah
I am alive

[Chorus]
And if you wanna be a teachers pet
Well baby you just better forget it

Rock got no reason
Rock got no rhyme

You better get me to school on time
OH YEAH (yeah)

[Verse 2: Tomika (Jack Black)]
Oh you know I was on the Honor Roll
Got good grades
And got no soul

Raise my hand before I could speak my mind
I’ve been biting my tongue too many times

(And then that magic man said to obey)
Uh huh
(Do what magic man do)
(Not what magic man say)
Say what
(Now can I please have the attention of the class)
(Todays assignment) *Ahem*
Kick some ass

And if you wanna be a teachers pet
Well baby you just better forget it
Rock got no reason
Rock got no rhyme
You better get me to school on time

Oh yeah! (yeah)

[Outro: Jack Black]
This is my final exam
Now you all know who I am
I may not be that perfect son
But y’all be rocking when I’m done

“Hungry Like the Wolf”, by Duran Duran, was released in 1982 from their album, “Rio”. It is credited to the whole group as songwriters, and is on the EMI – Harvest label.

[Verse 1]
Dark in the city night is a wire
Steam in the subway earth is afire
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo
Woman you want me give me a sign
And catch my breathing even closer behind
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo[Chorus]
In touch with the ground
I’m on the hunt I’m after you
Smell like I sound I’m lost in a crowd.
And I’m hungry like the wolf.
Straddle the line in discord and rhyme
I’m on the hunt I’m after you.
Mouth is alive with juices like wine
And I’m hungry like the wolf[Verse 2]
Stalked in the forest too close to hide
I’ll be upon you by the moonlight side
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo
High blood Drumming on your skin it’s so tight
You feel my heat I’m just a moment behind
Do do do do do do do dodo dododo dodo[Chorus]
In touch with the ground
I’m on the hunt I’m after you
Scent and a sound. I’m lost and I’m found
And I’m hungry like the wolf.
Strut on a line it’s discord and rhyme
I howl and I whine I’m after you
Mouth is alive all running inside
And I’m hungry like the wolf.[Hook]
Hungry like the wolf
Hungry like the wolf
Hungry like the wolf[Bridge]
Burning the ground I break from the crowd
I’m on the hunt I’m after you
I smell like I sound. I’m lost and I’m found
And I’m hungry like the wolf
Strut on a line it’s discord and rhyme
I’m on the hunt I’m after you
Mouth is alive with juices like wine
And I’m hungry like the wolf

[Outro]
Burning the ground I break from the crowd
I’m on the hunt I’m after you
I smell like I sound. I’m lost and I’m found
And I’m hungry like the wolf
Strut on a line it’s discord and rhyme
I’m on the hunt I’m after you
Mouth is alive with juices like wine
And I’m hungry like the wolf

A Cowhand & a Fireman – Song Lyric Sunday – Occupations

A Cowhand & a Fireman – Song Lyric Sunday – Occupations

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2019/03/02/response-from-helen/

For today’s SLS we are asked to find songs about occupations (jobs/careers/work). Thanks, Jim!

There are lots of songs that fit the prompt, and the problem was just choosing which one to post about, so I chose these two.

***

This is from the information I found on Wikipedia about this fun song:

I’m an Old Cowhand (From the Rio Grande)” is a comic song written by Johnny Mercer for the film Rhythm on the Range and sung by its star, Bing Crosby. The Crosby commercial recording was made on July 17, 1936 with Jimmy Dorsey & his Orchestra for Decca Records.[1] It was a huge hit in 1936 reaching the No. 2 spot in the charts of the day,[2] and it greatly furthered Mercer’s career. Crosby recorded the song again in 1954 for his album Bing: A Musical Autobiography.

Members of the Western Writers of America chose it as one of the Top 100 Western songs of all time.[3]

***

And, this is how I remember this song. It’s a clip of Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance, as Lucy and Ethel,  all dressed up as cowboys singing the song. They were always so funny together in every episode of this classic TV show.

***

I'm an old cowhand from the Rio Grande
But my legs ain't bowed and my cheeks ain't tan
I'm a cowboy who never saw a cow
Never roped a steer 'cause I don't know how
Sure ain't a fixing to start in now
Oh, yippie yi yo kayah, yippie yi yo kayah

I'm an old cowhand and I come down from the Rio Grande
And I learned to ride, ride, ride 'fore I learned to stand
I'm a riding fool who is up to date
I know every trail in the Lone Star State
'Cause I ride the range in a Ford V 8
Oh, yippie yi yo kayah, yippie yi yo kayah

Yippie yi yo kayah, yippie yi yo kayah

We're old cowhands from the Rio Grande
And we come to town just to hear the band
We know all the songs that the cowboys know
'Bout the big corral where the doggies go
We learned them all on the radio
Yippie yi yo kayah, yippie yi yo kayah

I'm an old cowhand
(Oh yes, Mr. Bing)
(Too hot for you, Uncle Fudd)
Down from the Rio Grande
Oh where the west is wild all around the borderland
Where the buffalo roam around the zoo
And the Injuns run up a rug or two
And the old Bar X is just a barbecue, yeah
Yippie yi yo kayah, yippie yi yo kayah

I'm a pioneer who began from scratch
I don't bat an eye in a shootin' match
They don't call me Elmer, they call me Satch
Yippie yi yo kayah, yippie yi yo kayah

Get along little horsy
Get along little horsy
Yippie yi yo kayah, oh

***

Being a fireman is an honorable profession, and I’m thankful that so many choose this as their career.

(But, shhh…I don’t think this is what the song is actually about)

***

“They Call Me The Fireman”, sung by George Strait, was released from his album, “Does Ft. Worth Ever Cross Your Mind”, in 1985. It was written by Mck Vickery and Wayne Kemp, and is on the MCA label.

***

They call me the fireman
That’s my name
Makin’ my rounds all over town
Puttin’ out old flamesWell everybody’d like to have what I’ve got
I can cool ’em down while they’re smolderin’ hot
I’m the fireman
That’s my nameLast night they had a bad one a mile or two down the road
Well my buddy walked out and left this woman burnin out of control
Well I was down there in ’bout an hour or so
With a little mouth to mouth she was ready to go
I’m the fireman that’s my nameThey call me the fireman
That’s my name
Makin’ my rounds all over town puttin’ out old flames
Well everybody’d like to have what I’ve got
I can cool ’em down while they’re smolderin’ hot
I’m the fireman that’s my name… Burn ’em upI’ve got fire-engine red t-bird automobile
In a minute or less I can be dressed fit to kill
I work twenty-four on and twenty-four off
When they get too hot, they just give me a call
I’m the fireman, that’s my nameThey call me the fireman, that’s my name
Makin my rounds all over town puttin’ out old flames
Well everybody’d like to have what I’ve got
I can cool ’em down while they’re smolderin’ hot
I’m the fireman, that’s my nameThey call me the fireman
That’s my name.

For today’s SLS, Jim has suggested songs about music/harmony/melody. Thanks, Jim.

I chose this song, because how could I not. Living here in the city where Buddy Holly is from, we have many reminders of his life and legend.

This video is maybe a bit long, but it sure does show a lot of music history, including many scenes from my home town, that we see all the time. We have the Buddy Holly Museum, the statue, the Walk of Fame, the murals, the street names, the yearly anniversaries of his birth and death days, the Cotton Club, where he played, the radio station that is still on the air, and much more. I’ve visited his grave site, which is in our local cemetery many times, too.

It was indeed a sad day when the music died.

“American Pie”, by Don McLean was released from his album of the same name in 1971. It was written by Don McLean, and is on the United Artists label.

***

***

[Verse 1]
A long, long time ago…
I can still remember
How that music used to make me smile

And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And, maybe, they’d be happy for a while

But February made me shiver
With every paper I’d deliver
Bad news on the doorstep;
I couldn’t take one more step

I can’t remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride

But something touched me deep inside
The day the music died

[Chorus]
So bye-bye, Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And them good old boys were drinking whiskey ‘n rye
Singing, “This’ll be the day that I die
“This’ll be the day that I die.”

[Verse 2]
Did you write the book of love
And do you have faith in God above
If the Bible tells you so?

Do you believe in rock ’n’ roll
Can music save your mortal soul
And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

Well, I know that you’re in love with him
`Cause I saw you dancin’ in the gym
You both kicked off your shoes
Man, I dig those rhythm and blues

I was a lonely teenage broncin’ buck
With a pink carnation and a pickup truck
But I knew I was out of luck
The day the music died

I started singing

Bye, bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And them good old boys were drinking whiskey ‘n rye
Singing, “This’ll be the day that I die
“This’ll be the day that I die.”

[Verse 3]
Now for ten years we’ve been on our own
And moss grows fat on a rollin’ stone
But that’s not how it used to be

When the jester sang for the king and queen
In a coat he borrowed from James Dean
And a voice that came from you and me

Oh, and while the king was looking down
The jester stole his thorny crown

The courtroom was adjourned;
No verdict was returned

And while Lennon read a book on Marx
The quartet practiced in the park

And we sang dirges in the dark
The day the music died
We were singing

[Chorus]
Bye, bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And them good old boys were drinking whiskey ‘n rye
Singing, “This’ll be the day that I die
“This’ll be the day that I die.”

Helter skelter in a summer swelter
The birds flew off with a fallout shelter
Eight miles high and falling fast
It landed foul on the grass

The players tried for a forward pass
With the jester on the sidelines in a cast

Now the half-time air was sweet perfume
While the sergeants played a marching tune
We all got up to dance
Oh, but we never got the chance!
`Cause the players tried to take the field;
The marching band refused to yield

Do you recall what was revealed
The day the music died?

We started singing

[Chorus]
Bye, bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
And them good old boys were drinking whiskey ‘n rye
Singing, “This’ll be the day that I die
“This’ll be the day that I die.”

[Verse 5]
Oh, and there we were all in one place
A generation lost in space
With no time left to start again
So come on: Jack be nimble, Jack be quick!
Jack Flash sat on a candlestick
Cause fire is the devil’s only friend
Oh, and as I watched him on the stage
My hands were clenched in fists of rage
No angel born in hell
Could break that Satan’s spell
And as the flames climbed high into the night
To light the sacrificial rite
I saw Satan laughing with delight
The day the music died

We were singing

Rocky Mountain High – Song Lyric Sunday – Mountain

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2019/02/16/sitting-on-top-of-the-world/

***

Today for SLS, Jim has asked for songs about mountains or hills. Thanks, Jim!

***

This song has had an interesting history, it seems. For a short time it was banned by radio stations, because they thought it promoted drug use. Later however, Colorado officials formally accepted the song as one of two of the states’s official songs.

Here’s a short part of the article I found on this, and John Denver’s statement.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rocky_Mountain_High

The song briefly became controversial that year when the U.S. Federal Communications Commission was permitted by a legal ruling to censor music deemed to promote drug abuse. Numerous radio stations cautiously banned the song until Denver publicly explained that the “high” was his innocent description of the sense of peace he found in the Rockies. In 1985, Denver testified before Congress in the Parents Music Resource Center hearings about his experience:

This was obviously done by people who had never seen or been to the Rocky Mountains, and also had never experienced the elation, celebration of life or the joy in living that one feels when he observes something as wondrous as the Perseid meteor shower on a moonless, cloudless night, when there are so many stars that you have a shadow from the starlight, and you are out camping with your friends, your best friends, and introducing them to one of nature’s most spectacular light shows for the first time.[4]

***

“Rocky Mountain High”, by John Denver, was released from his album, “Rocky Mountain High”, in 1972. It was written by John Denver and Mike Taylor, and is on the RCA Records label.

***

He was born in the summer of his 27th year
Comin’ home to a place he’d never been before
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again
You might say he found a key for every doorWhen he first came to the mountains his life was far away
On the road and hangin’ by a song
But the string’s already broken and he doesn’t really care
It keeps changin’ fast and it don’t last for longBut the Colorado rocky mountain high
I’ve seen it rainin’ fire in the sky
The shadow from the starlight is softer than a lullabye
Rocky mountain high
(Colorado)
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)He climbed cathedral mountains, he saw silver clouds below
He saw everything as far as you can see
And they say that he got crazy once and he tried to touch the sun
And he lost a friend but kept the memory

Now he walks in quiet solitude the forest and the streams
Seeking grace in every step he takes
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

And the Colorado rocky mountain high
I’ve seen it rainin’ fire in the sky
Talk to God and listen to the casual reply
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)

Now his life is full of wonder but his heart still knows some fear
Of a simple thing he cannot comprehend
Why they try to tear the mountains down to bring in a couple more
More people, more scars upon the land

And the Colorado rocky mountain high
I’ve seen it rainin’ fire in the sky
I know he’d be a poorer man if he never saw an eagle fly
Rocky mountain high

It’s a Colorado rocky mountain high
I’ve seen it rain fire in the sky
Friends around the campfire and everybody’s high
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)
Rocky mountain high
(high in Colorado)

This is a song that I’ve always liked, because it brings back memories of an all night long, nonsensical drive around town with friends.

Here’s what is interesting/strange about the lyrics, to me, now that I’ve read them.

  • Why 73 men? What’s the significance of that number?
  • A storm was blowing, yet the sea was peaceful?
  • The ship was a mystery ship, come from nowhere, and then disappeared. Were they aliens from another planet trying to lure people to their ‘mystery ship’, and ‘another world’?

Ride Captain Ride

{Intro}

Seventy-three men sailed up from the San Francisco Bay
Rolled off of their ship, and here’s what they had to say
“We’re callin’ everyone to ride along to another shore
We can laugh our lives away and be free once more”

But no one heard them callin’, no one came at all
Cause they were too busy watchin’ those old raindrops fall
As a storm was blowin’ out on the peaceful sea
Seventy-three men sailed off to history

Ride, captain ride upon your mystery ship
Be amazed at the friends you have here on your trip

Ride captain ride upon your mystery ship
On your way to a world that others might have missed

{Bridge}

Seventy-three men sailed up from the San Francisco Bay
Rolled off of their ship, and here’s what they had to say
“We’re callin’ everyone to ride along to another shore
We can laugh our lives away and be free once more”

But no one heard them callin’, no one came at all
Cause they were too busy watchin’ those old raindrops fall
As a storm was blowin’ out on the peaceful sea
Seventy-three men sailed off to history
