Book Review: The Monkey Wrench Gang

December 13, 2019 Leave a comment

The Gang itself is a motley enough crew to keep you fairly entertained on their “Mission from God” to make the Southwest right again in the face of commercial onslaught–though they really do seem to hate bulldozers. I don’t buy into their eco-terrorism, but it seems to be a seventies kind of thing that moves the plot along. My favorite character is the scenery. Abbey captures the land in his prose on a par with Hayduke, which kind of makes you pull for the Monkey Wrench Gang. (4 of 5 Stars)

BAD COMPANY Feel Like Makin Love 1975

December 12, 2019 Leave a comment

Baby, when I think about you
I think about love
Darlin’, couldn’t live without you
And your love

If I had those golden dreams of my yesterday
I would wrap you
In the heavens
And feel it dyin’ all the way
(Dyin’)

I feel like makin’
Feel like makin’ love
Feel like makin’ love
Feel like makin’ love
Feel like makin’ love to you

Baby, if I think about you
I think about love
Baby baby baby, if I live without you
I live without love

And if I had the sun and moon
They were shinin’
You know I would give you both night and day
Love satisfyin’

I feel like makin’
Feel like makin’ love
Feel like makin’ love
Feel like makin’ love
Feel like makin’ love to you

And if I had the sun and moon
They were shinin’
You know I would give you both night and day
Love satisfyin’

I feel like makin’
Feel like makin’ love
Feel like makin’ love
Feel like makin’ love
Feel like makin’ love, love

Feel like makin’ love
Feel like makin’ love
Feel like makin’ love
Feel like makin’ love to you

(Tweedilly-tweedilly-deet, tweedilly-tweedilly-deet)
(Tweedilly-tweedilly-deet, tweedilly-tweedilly-deet)
(Tweet-tweet-tweet-tweet)

He rocks in the treetops all day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing his song
All the little birds on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet-tweet-tweet

Rockin’ robin, (tweet-tweet-tweet)
Rock-rock-rockin’ robin’ (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)
Go rockin’ robin ’cause we’re really gonna rock tonight (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)

Every little swallow, every chick-a-dee
Every little bird in the tall oak tree
The wise old owl, the big black crow
Flappin’ their wings signin’ “go bird, go”

Rockin’ robin, (tweet-tweet-tweet)
Rock-rock-rockin’ robin’ (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)
Go rockin’ robin ’cause we’re really gonna rock tonight (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)

A wordy little raven at the bird’s first dance
Taught him how to do the bop and it was grand
They started going steady and bless my soul
He out-bopped the buzzard and the oriole

He rocks in the treetops all day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing his song
All the little birds on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet-tweet-tweet

Rockin’ robin, (tweet-tweet-tweet)
Rock-rock-rockin’ robin’ (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)
Go rockin’ robin ’cause we’re really gonna rock tonight (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)

Well, the pretty little raven at the bird bandstand
Taught him how to do the bop and it was grand
They started going steady and bless my soul
He out-bopped the buzzard and the oriole

He rocks in the treetops all day long
Hoppin’ and a-boppin’ and singing his song
All the little birds on Jaybird Street
Love to hear the robin go tweet tweet tweet

Rockin’ robin, (tweet-tweet-tweet)
Rock-rock-rockin’ robin’ (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)
Go rockin’ robin ’cause we’re really gonna rock tonight (tweet-tweedilly-tweet)

Chad & Jeremy – Yesterday's Gone

December 10, 2019 Leave a comment

I loved you all the summer through
I thought I’d found my dream in you
For me you were the one
But that was yesterday and yesterday’s gone

We walked together hand in hand
‘cross miles and miles of golden sand
But now it’s over and done
’cause that was yesterday and yesterday’s gone

We had such happiness together
I can’t believe it’s gone forever

Wait ’til summer comes again
I hope that you’ll remember when
Our love had just begun
I loved you yesterday and yesterday’s gone

We had such happiness together
I can’t believe it’s gone forever

Wait ’til summer comes again
I hope that you’ll remember when
Our love had just begun
I loved you yesterday and yesterday’s gone
Yesterday’s gone
Yesterday’s gone
Yesterday’s gone
