Elvin Bishop – Rock My Soul – 6/15/1973 – Winterland (Official)

October 21, 2020 Leave a comment

When you’re feeling down
Turn the music on
And let it soothe you
When you’re feeling good
Turn the music off
And let it move you
Make you wanna shout
Make you wanna holler “Hallelujah”

(Hallelujah)
Doesn’t make her shout
(Rock my soul)
Hey, come on, rock my soul
(Rock my soul)

When you listen to the music
Let it sink in to you
You’ll be surprised to find out
How much good a little bit can do you
Make it tremble
Make cold chills run of through you
Make you wanna shout
Make you wanna holler “Hallelujah”

(Hallelujah)
I love to feel the music just
(Rock my soul)
Ah, that’s what I’m talkin’ about
(Rock my soul)
I wish I had somebody to help me shout
(Rock my soul, yeah yeah)
(Hallelujah)
(Hallelujah)  EmbedMORE ON GENIUS

Tom Petty – Breakdown (Live 1985)

October 20, 2020 Leave a comment

It’s alright if you love me
It’s alright if you don’t
I’m not afraid of you runnin’ away, honey
I get the feeling you won’t

There is no sense in pretending
Your eyes give you away
Something inside you is feeling like I do
We said all there is to say

Baby, breakdown, go ahead and give it to me
Breakdown, honey, take me through the night (baby, baby, breakdown)
Breakdown, now I’m standin’ here, can’t you see?
Breakdown, it’s all right
It’s all right
It’s all right

Breakdown, go ahead and give it to me
Breakdown, honey, take me through the night (baby, baby, breakdown)
Breakdown, now I’m standin’ here, can’t you see?
Breakdown, it’s all right
It’s all right
It’s all right

Doobie Brothers – Long Train Running HD (Live)

October 19, 2020 Leave a comment

Down around the corner, half a mile from here
See them long trains run, and you watch them disappear
Without love, where would you be now
Without lo-o-o-ove

You know I saw miss Lucy down along the tracks
She lost her home and her family and she won’t be coming back
Without love, where would you be right now
Without lo-o-o-ove

Well the Illinois Central
And the Southern Central Freight
Got to keep on pushin’ mama
You know they’re running late
Without love, where would you be now
Without lo-o-o-ve

Well the Illinois Central
And the Southern Central Freight
Got to keep on pushin’ mama
You know they’re running late
Without love, where would you be now
Without lo-o-o-ve

Well the pistons keep on turning
And the wheels go round and round
The steel rails are cold and hard
For the miles that they go down

Without love, where would you be right now
Without lo-o-o-ve ooh
Where would you be now

Mmm, got to get you, baby baby, won’t you move it down?
Won’t you move it down?
Baby, baby, baby, baby, won’t you move it down?
When the big train run
When the train is movin’ on I got to keep on movin’
Keep on movin’
Won’t you keep on movin’?
Gonna keep on movin’

Book Review: Pulp

October 16, 2020 Leave a comment
 
I’m not sure what “good old Bukowski stuff” really is, but Pulp smacks on a couple of good themes for me:  a good old fashion noir detective tale (“A dick without a gat is like a tomcat with a rubber”) and the dark undercurrents of Lady Death, Celine (the writer, not the singer) and the fate of the Red Sparrow: “Sometimes I looked at my hands and realized that I could have been a great pianist or something. But what have my hands done? Scratched my balls, written checks, tied shoes, pushed toilet levers, etc. I have wasted my hands. And my mind.” (4 of 5 Stars)

Enjoy yourself
Enjoy yourself
Enjoy yourself with me

Enjoy yourself
Enjoy yourself
Enjoy yourself with me

You better enjoy yourself
You better enjoy yourself

You sittin over there
Starin into his face
While people are dancin’
Dancin all over the place

You shouldn’t worry about things you can’t control
Come on girl while the night is young
Why don’t ya mix up the place, let it go

[Chorus]
Let’s have some fun
Let’s have a good time you and me
Sittin there with your mouth all out
Just sweet as you can be

Why dontcha live, live the life ya got
Come on girl let’s spin it
While the music’s live and hot..whoo!

[Chorus]

Jackie: Baby girl I’ve been watchin you?
I want what I’m waitin for
For you and I to get together

We can tear the house down
Or we can tear the house down
Or we can tear the whole house down..whoo!

[Chorus]
