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

La Grange - ZZ Top

 

It’s about a “house of ill repute” located just outside of La Grange Tx called the Chicken Ranch. It was featured in a movie, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas and Dolly Parton played the madam. It really existed, and the law tended to ignore them. It was later sold and turned into a restaurant for a while. Still hate the song!

A Pirate Looks At Forty - Jimmy Buffet

 

"

Yes, I am a pirate, two hundred years too late
The cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder
I'm an over-forty victim of fate
Arriving too late, arriving too late

I've done a bit of smugglin', and I've run my share of grass
I made enough money to buy Miami, but I pissed it away so fast
Never meant to last, never meant to last"

 

...Hope The "P" word doesn't ruffle too many feathers.

Bobb's At Gunpoint - Quincy Jones

 

It's an instrumental from the soundtrack of a movie and less than a minute long, but "Gunpoint" is in the title, the movie is titled "A Deadly Affair" and it sounds really ominous.

Run For Your Life: Beatles. (A “thought-about” crime). (I’d rather see you dead little girl than to be with another man”) Not the typical Beatles song.

I’m On The Lamb But I Ain’t No Sheep - BOC

https://youtu.be/A8s02HCUqHo

 

We don’t know what he’s done, but he’s running from the Canadian Mounted Police, and they get their man in the end. A different take sharing some of the same lyrics . . .

Fighting Man - Gillan

 

In his hand

Is a gun that says he doesn’t need a reason

And there’s no one gonna take away the freedom

In his hand

 

He’s a bad mistake

Got no heart to hate

Gotta mind that can

He’s a fighters fighting man
