And Another Worthy Cover

And also Halloween-worthy. Calico Cooper really looks like her daddy, especially that profile.  And it turns out she sings as well as she dances (not that she dances here, but I saw her performing onstage as her father’s lead dancer a number of years ago here in Richmond. Check it out!

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

Nerd Metal Fridays: Blind Guardian

Going old-school today with Germany’s Blind Guardian. For over 30 years they’ve been turning high-concept ideas into heavy-duty tunes and helping to define what today’s artists mean when they talk symphonic metal. Nerdy? Well they managed to make an entire concept album out of Tolkien’s The Silmarillion (Nightfall in Middle-Earth). If unironic songs about hobbits, […]
