#Lyricsoftheday Weekly Wrapup: Week 4

 

Thought I would start something new for the New Year, and start putting out a lyric or something everyday, at about 6:30 CST, I’m gonna throw something up on Twitter. I might have some of the other writers take a week or two every now and again (if you start seeing Nas or Frank Sinatra, chances are I’m taking a week off) So lets have fun with it, and if you missed a day, or just have no idea where the song comes from, well, here you go. As always the Twitter is @7poundbagdotcom

So how did you enjoy Metal Week?

She was a fast machine, she kept her motor cleanACDC
She was the best damn woman that I ever seen
She had the sightless eyes, telling me no lies
Knocking me out with those American thighs

AC/DC – You Shook Me All Night Long 1/19

Any Metal week has to kick off with the Granddaddy of them all, right? I love me some AC/DC. I almost went with Something off the Razor’s Edge, but figured I’d go with a classic.

I’m outta luck, outta lovePhotograph
Gotta photograph, picture of
Passion killer, you’re too much
You’re the only one I wanna touch

Def Leppard – Photograph 1/20

I love Def Leppard. I’m gonna have to do a Leppard week this summer. And the video to this song? Young People today just don’t understand how awesome MTV used to be, back when they played these things called Videos. But the song? I just love it, its got a solid build, and never goes to the screaming that so many songs did in the 80s.

Without you in my life
I’d slowly wilt and die
But with you by my side
You’re the reason I’m alive

Motley Crue – Without You 1/21

Thought it was going to be Girls Girls Girls didn’t you? Nope. For some reason every Metal band has to throw out a “Power Ballard” and this is the best of the bunch.

Every rose has its thornPoison
Just like every night has its dawn
Just like every cowboy sings his sad, sad song
Every rose has its thorn, yeah it does

Poison – Every Rose has its thorns 1/22

Yeah, back to back Ballads, but now we are into the Hair Metal genre.

Shed a tear because I’m missing you
I’m still alright to smile
Girl, I think about you every day now
Was a time when I wasn’t sure

Guns and Roses – Patience 1/23

What? You thought it was going to be something off Chinese Democracy? I did look for something with Welcome to the Jungle, but I just really do like this song. I do think the Lyrics of G&R get overshadowed by the politics and stupidity surrounding the band.

Miss a beat, you lose a rhythmvan haggar
And nothin’ falls into place, no
Only missed by a fraction
Slipped a little off your pace, oh

Van Haggar – Right Now 1/24

I don’t have a big problem with Van Haggar, and this is the best song, like many songs on this list, made better by the video. I picked this screenshot, so do me a favor and call your parents. Just check in. You are gonna miss them one day.

I think of all the education that I’ve missedVan Halen
But then my homework was never quite like this

Van Halen – Hot For Teacher 1/25

Ah, Yeah. Have to close out the week with some Van Halen. gotta love them. Just a solid group with some really good bubblegum rock lyrics, and Eddie Van Halen

Next week? Are you ready for PRINCE WEEK on @7poundbagdotcom ?
