A Lover's Prayer - The Del-Lords

You may have never heard of these guys, but some have considered them one of the better bands of the 80's. A mixture of blues, rockabilly, rock and country. I found this song one of the best. I never get tired of it. It sounds like a throwback to the 50's.

Updated my George Thorogood - Blue Highway post. It needed to be heard. Ran across it again and it just sounds so good.

The Beatles - Penny Can

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_hIV7jwLXt8

Wow, I never new the lyrics to this song before till now. All this time I thought the name of the song was Penny Lane. I stand corrected. Check out the lyrics for further proof...

Penny Can Lyrics
 
Penny Can there is a barber showing photographs
Of every head he's had the pleasure to have known
And all the people that come and go
Stop and say hello

On the corner is a banker with a motorcar
The little children laugh at him behind his back
And the banker never wears a mac
In the pouring rain...
Very strange

Penny Can is in my ears and in my eyes
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back

In Penny Can there is a fireman with an hourglass
And in his pocket is a portrait of the Queen.
He likes to keep his fire engine clean
It's a clean machine

Trumpet Solo

Penny Can is in my ears and in my eyes
Four of fish and finger pies
In summer, meanwhile back

Behind the shelter in the middle of a roundabout
A pretty nurse is selling poppies from a tray
And though she feels as if she's in a play
She is anyway

Penny Can the barber shaves another customer
We see the banker sitting waiting for a trim
Then the fireman rushes in
From the pouring rain...
Very strange

Penny Can is in my ears and in my eyes
There beneath the blue suburban skies
I sit, and meanwhile back
Penny Can is in my ears and in my eyes
There beneath the blue suburban skies...
Penny Can.

Brilliant Lyrics!!!!

going to rock some beatles today...watched a neat documentary last night on netflix of people who'd met the beatles, from the normal person to the most famous musicians...was really cool and a fun movie to see.

but it really got me wanting to rock the beatles.

going to start at their first record and move forward from there...I've never done it, so it should be fun.

it's (the movie) was called Beatles Stories.

fun stuff

:)

The Psychedelic Furs - Love My Way

Having just watched The Wedding Singer, I was reminded of the fact that Love My Way absolutely belongs in a thread called 'Greatest Songs of all Time'. No doubt.

Dude, it's a chick magnet. You play this song at a party, you're getting laid.
