Name That Tune

This seemed to be a hit on another forum so we'll try it here on this dud of a day after Thanksgiving. It may not get much play today with lots of folks away for the holiday. May not get much play at all; however, if you would like to stay in touch with your Rock 'n Roll roots you might enjoy playing along.

Now this is Rock 'N Roll Lyrics, y'all. Lyrics from "The Pilgrims'Chorus" from Richard Wagner's "Tannhäuser" won't cut it, nor will lyrics from "Your Cheatin' Heart" by Hank Williams. Christmas carol lyrics need not apply either and the less said about Rap the better. Start different threads for other musical genres.

I will start it with some Rock 'n Roll lyrics and you guess who it is and then add your own Rock 'N Roll Lyrics for others to guess.

*Extra credit for also naming artist and album


Here goes ...

"Well you're windy and wild
You've got the blues in your shoes and your stockings
You're windy and wild, oh yeah
Well you're built like a car
You've got a hub cap diamond star halo
You're dirty sweet and you're my girl"

That "didn't take long or hurt much."

You can add new lyrics for us to guess, 4-2-go.

I look to the sea
Reflections in the waves spark my memory
Some happy, some sad
I think of childhood friends and the dreams we had

We lived happily forever
So the story goes
But somehow we missed out on the pot of gold
But we'll try best that we can to carry on

Be on my side, i'll be on your side
There is no reason for you to hide
It's so hard for me staying here all alone
when you could be taking me for a ride

OOOooo...that's a fairly dark song but, considering the artist, Neil Young, is fairly typical. "Down By the River"

Don't know the original album. I have it on a greatest hits compilation album two-vinyl set, called "Decade."

"I don't want to sound complaining
But you know there's always rain in my heart
I do all the pleasing with you, it's so hard to reason
With you, whoa yeah, why do you make me blue?"

It is on the album Everyone Knows This Is Nowhere

The Beatles, Please Please Me


i've been talking to myself
just to suggest i'm selfish
i've been trying to impress
that more is less and im repressed

Alright you!

Thought I'd be fairly adept at this but am already stumped.

Stand Back, Stevie Nicks?

Shammy cleaning all the windows
Singing songs about Edith Piaf's soul
And i hear blue strains of no regredior
Across the street from Cathedral Notre Dame.

Stevie Nix - Stand Back

I look at you and my blood boils hot,
I feel my temperature rise
I want it all, give me what you got,
there's hunger in your eyes
I'm getting closer, baby hear me breathe
You know the way to give me what I need
Just let me love you and you'll never leave

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide,
No escape from reality.

My Ding-a-ling - Chuck Berry

Have mercy
A-haw-haw-haw-haw, a-heh
A-haw-haw-haw

Well, I hear it's fine
If you got the time
And the ten to get yourself in
A-hmm, hmm
And I hear it's tight
A-most every night
But now I might be mistaken
Hmm, hmm, hmm

Funny you should say that, Happy. Played some ZZ Top albums lately. Enjoyable for a while but but a bit limited as a group. A live show attended on an occasion was fun but they really weren't so hot. This was in the late 1970s.

I want you to get in the groove
We're gonna play this footstompin' music
Everybody get up and groove"
