Bang A Gong

Moose

I thought the plural of “moose” would be “mooses” or possibly “meece,” but it isn’t; it’s just “moose.” (source) Huh. And that reminded me of this: Full lyrics HERE.

I Had An Amplifier, Too

  I just really like the verse: From across the canyon a guitar plays Through an amplifier on long delay It was an old melody, I recognized the song I had an amplifier, too, so I played along… It sounds very friendly.  Full lyrics HERE.

There have been a lot of songs written on the theme “saved by rock and roll.”  Someday I’ll make a list. But not today. Full lyrics HERE.

I’m Just

The song is just okay, but I love the fifteen-second drum solo at the beginning. Full lyrics HERE.

17

I first heard this song on the radio in the 70s.  I don’t think you’ll hear a 17-minute rock opus on the radio today. It’s a love song from Adam to Eve, in the Garden of Eden.  Promising to be true seems like a pretty easy promise to keep when there are only two people …

There is nothin’ fair in this world…

Full lyrics HERE, but they’re kind of nonsensical. You can safely skip them without fear of missing some subtle nuance. Moving on. There were two times in my life that I tried, really tried, to fit in with a conventional office job.  It didn’t work out either time.  There are economic advantages to being a …

The Line

The song takes an interesting turn vocally about 2:39.  I don’t know what you would call that.  “Falsetto” doesn’t feel right.  Wikipedia calls it “Steven Tyler’s trademark scream,” but that’s not a clean fit, either. Tyler seems to have created something uniquely his own. Full lyrics HERE.

Baader–Meinhof Phenomenon

  From Wikipedia: Frequency illusion, also known as the Baader–Meinhof phenomenon or frequency bias, is a cognitive bias in which, after noticing something for the first time, there is a tendency to notice it more often, leading someone to believe that it has a high frequency (a form of selection bias). It occurs when increased …

Good

“More harm is done under guise of goodness than ever realized by foul deed or evildoer.  Nevertheless, I wish I was good.”  ~Herbert E. Huncke And that reminded me of this: “You made me forget myself.  I thought I was someone else– someone good.”  ~Lou Reed Full lyrics HERE.

Eyes On

I think this video appeals to me because it’s the 80s viewed through the eyes of a 70s guy– like me.  I also like the way he wails like an air raid siren at about the  2:43 mark.  🙂 Full lyrics HERE.

Intercession

“The idea that each of us can be directly spiritual is radical. Most religions are based not on teaching adherents to be directly spiritual, but in persuading them to trust in the intercession of ministers or priests. The problem with this approach is that we cannot gain access to spirituality except through the medium of …

The Boys

 The opening chords are instantly recognizeable, but there’s a reason Disney censored the lyrics: Friday night they’ll be dressed to kill Down at Dino’s Bar ‘n’ Grill The drink will flow and the blood will spill And if the boys want to fight, you better let ’em Full lyrics HERE.

Can You Hear Me?

 I love songs that tell a story or sketch a portrait.  Those are rare these days. From The Washington Post: “It’s a very human story,” he (Bruce Springsteen) says. “We start carrying some of the baggage of our past as small children. And then at some point we either try to sort it out or …
