Word-Salad Wednesday: Sabaton – Metal Ripper

OK, I’m cheating a bit here, due to the context of the song, but it turned out relatively nonsensical regardless, so I’m going to go with it.  While Sabaton is best known for being Schoolhouse Rock for the headbanging crowd (at least as far as History is concerned), they have never neglected their metal roots and a number of albums contain a final track that acts as a tribute to their musical influences.  Metal Ripper from Coat of Arms is one of these, combining lyrical phrases from a number of well-known metal songs to make something new.  And jumbled.

And hey, for once the lyrics are included!

Word-Salad Wednesdays: Ratt – “Round and Round”

OK, I’m pretty sure I posted this video before, but it’s such a perfect example of the throw-random-rhyming-words-at-the-wall-and-see-what-sticks school of lyricism that I had to include it.  Besides I am just old and nerdy enough to remember Milton Berle fondly.

Actual Lyrics

Out on the streets, that’s where we’ll meet
You make the night, I always cross the line
Tightened our belts, abused ourselves
Get in our way, we’ll put you on your shelf

Another day, some other way
We’re gonna go, but then we’ll see you again
I’ve had enough, we’ve had enough
Cold in vain, she said

I knew right from the beginning
That you would end up winnin’
I knew right from the start
You’d put an arrow through my heart

Round and round
With love we’ll find a way just give it time
Round and round
What comes around goes around
I’ll tell you why, dig

Lookin’ at you, lookin’ at me
The way you move, you know it’s easy to see
The neon light’s on me tonight
I’ve got a way, we’re gonna prove it tonight

Like Romeo to Juliet, time and time
I’m gonna make you mine
I’ve had enough, we’ve had enough
It’s all the same, she said

I knew right from the beginning
That you would end up winnin’
I knew right from the start
You’d put an arrow through my heart

Round and round
With love we’ll find a way just give it time
Round and round
What comes around, goes around
I’ll tell you why, yeah

Out on the streets that’s where we’ll meet
You make the night I always cross the line
Tightened our belts abuse ourselves
Get in our way, we’ll put you on your shelf

Round and round
With love we’ll find a way, just give it time
Round and round
What comes around, goes around
I’ll tell you why

Three Weeks From Who Cruising

http://www.scificruise.com/

I’m late sharing this here, for which I apologize, but in roughly three weeks we are heading off on a really excellent Doctor Who themed nautical adventure.  Most excited about our stop in Jamaica as it’s a new port of call for us as a family. And this year’s guest list is fab. Anyhow, it’s not too late to drop everything and join us!

We will be sailing out of Miami, FL on March 3rd. Details are at the link above.
