Thought I would start something new for the New Year, and start putting out a lyric or something everyday, at about 7 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 #Lyricsoftheday
Thought I would go through the alphabet and just start throwing some out there. I went back to ACDC, and hit 2 of my Areosmith favorites.
Vanilla Ice – Ice Ice Baby 2/23
We got snow here in LA, and for the first time this year, the #lyricsoftheday snuck up on me, so I went here. My hair, when I don’t cut it, looks way too much like this up tip. I never did wear those pants.
Yes it’s true – Loneliness took me for a ride
Without your love – I’m nothing but a begger
Without your love – a dog without a bone
What can I do I’m sleeping in this bed alone
Aerosmith – Angel 2/24
That kinda lovin’ turns a man to a slave
That kinda lovin’ sends a man right to his grave
I go crazy, crazy baby, I go crazy
You turn it on, then you’re gone
Yeah, you drive me crazy, crazy, crazy for you baby
What can I do, honey? I feel like the color blue
Aerosmith – Crazy 2/25
One of the best videos of all time, I don’t care what Kanye says.
Sound of the drums
Beatin’ in my heart
The thunder of guns
Tore me apart
You’ve been – thunderstruck
AC/DC – Thunderstruck 2/26
Many bands tended to die after a monster hit. ACDC did not. Thunderstruck was a monster album, and this song is sports-arena fodder, and will be for years.
I’m a rolling thunder, a pouring rain
I’m comin’ on like a hurricane
My lightning’s flashing across the sky
You’re only young but you’re gonna die
AC/DC – Hells Bells 2/27
I love the entrance to this song, I love the way its built, and I love the way it crests. If I was going to be a wrestler or a fighter this would be my entrance theme.
A French maid, foreign chef
A big house with king size bed
You’ve had enough, you ship them out
The dollar’s up-down, you’d better buy the pound
It’s not hard to follow this song, and its a well-done mix of message and messenger.
It is a night for passion
But the morning means goodbye
Beware of what is flashing in her eyes
She’s going to get you
Ace Of Base – All That She Wants 3/1
Yup from ACDC to the band that replaced Abba
Deal with it. Not quite bubblegum, as there is more substance there.
