It’s Criminal!

Many people love reality or fictional crime shows. What songs are about crime? Either committed or thought about. I was surprised when I thought of this just how many there are. 

Hey Joe-Jimi Hendrix


 
Hey Joe I heard you shot your woman down You shot her down, now

Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden

 

I’m waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime

Reflecting on my past life and it doesn’t have much time

”Cause at five o’clock they take me to the Gallows Pole

The sands of time for me are running low

Running low
