Sorry, you’ll just have to put up with my Grand Funk Railroad bender

Bruce Springsteen, “4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)”

3 Jul

Sandy the fireworks are hailin’ over Little Eden tonight
Forcin’ a light into all those stoned-out faces left stranded on this Fourth of July
Down in town the circuit’s full with switchblade lovers so fast so shiny so sharp
And the wizards play down on Pinball Way on the boardwalk way past dark
And the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open like Latin lovers along the shore
Chasin’ all them silly New York girls

Sandy the aurora is risin’ behind us
The pier lights our carnival life forever
Love me tonight for I may never see you again
Hey Sandy girl

Now the greasers they tramp the streets or get busted for trying to sleep on the beach all night
Them boys in their spiked high heels ah Sandy their skins are so white
And me I just got tired of hangin’ in them dusty arcades bangin’ them pleasure machines
Chasin’ the factory girls underneath the boardwalk where they promise to unsnap their jeans
And you know that tilt-a-whirl down on the south beach drag
I got on it last night and my shirt got caught
And that Joey kept me spinnin’ I didn’t think I’d ever get off

Oh Sandy the aurora is risin’ behind us
The pier lights our carnival life on the water
Runnin’ down the beach at night with my boss’s daughter
Well he ain’t my boss no more Sandy

Sandy, the angels have lost our desire for us
I spoke to ’em just last night and they said they won’t set themselves on fire for us anymore
Every summer when the weather gets hot they ride that road down from heaven on their Harleys they come and they go
And you can see ’em dressed like stars in all the cheap little seashore bars parked making love with their babies out on the Kokomo
Well the cops finally busted Madame Marie for tellin’ fortunes better than they do
This boardwalk life for me is through
You know you ought to quit this scene too

Sandy the aurora’s rising behind us, the pier lights our carnival life forever
Oh love me tonight and I promise I’ll love you forever

for otis, one of the great soul men of all time

10 Dec

On December 10, 1967, Otis Redding was 26 years old. 26. His plane, en route from Cleveland to Wisconsin plunged into a lake and he along with some of his band mates, his manager and the pilot were killed. Three days before he died, Redding cut “Sittin’ On The Dock Of The Bay.” A month after he recorded it, it was released and became his only number one Billboard hit. That’s only one part of the long legacy of great music Redding left behind. He was truly one of the great soul men of all time.

“I Used To Be A Cop” is a new song from the Drive-By Truckers from their forthcoming album Go-Go Boots due on February 15th. The first video is cool and all that but we really like the second video where they give the 10-inch vinyl test pressing a spin. It’s the first of a series of videos (The Go-Go Boots Episodes) they’re doing about the new album, followed by an acoustic episode they did on Thanksgiving.
