Trick of the Light

The Who

 

But was I all right? (was I all right?)
Did I take you to the height of ecstasy?
Was I all right? (was I all right?)
Did a shadow of emotion cross your face
Or was it just another trick of the light?

But I Am a Good Girl

 
The dress is Chanel,
the shoes YSL,
The bag is Dior,
Agent Provocateur
My address today, L.A. by the way,
above Sunset Strip, The hills all the way.
My rings are by Webster, it makes their heads twirl
They all say, "Darling, what did you do for those pearls?"
What? I am a good girl
 
B.H I adore, Rodeo l'amour
Breakfast Polo Lounge then pool side for sure
The Chateau for cocktails,
The Courtyard at nine
Dan Tana's for dinner, the Helen's divine
 
You know I have found the word's going round
They all say my feet never do touch the ground
What? I am a good girl
 
This is the Christina Aguilera version. Great video.

Dixie Chicken

By Little Feat

 

I've seen the bright lights of Memphis 

And the Commodore Hotel

Underneath a street lamp

I met a southern belle

 

Well it's been a year since she ran away
Yes that guitar player sure could play
She always liked to sing along
She's always handy with a song

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3z-GwdaKrn8

 

Hey, Hey, What Can I Do?

Led Zeppelin 

 

In the evening when the sun is sinkin' low
Everybody's with the one they love
I walk the town, keep a-searchin' all around
Lookin' for my street corner girl

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYbMPgqsGhI

 

The Fire Down Below 

Bob Seger

 

And he's looking out for Rosie and she's looking mighty fine
And he's walking the streets for Nancy
And he'll find her everytime
When the street lights flicker bringing on the night
Well they'll be slipping into darkness slipping out of sight
All through the midnight
Watch 'em come and watch 'em go
With only one thing in common
They got the fire down below

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7r-V1id038

With “Frankie and Johnny” we see role reversal. Johnny (the man) cheats on Frankie (the woman). Frankie blows away Johnny with her .44 (coincidentally the same caliber gun used by Stagger Lee when he shot poor Billy). One of the sing’s final lines suggests that Johnny had it coming....something like there is no good in man.


.44s are popular...

 

Early one mornin' while makin' my rounds

I took a shot of cocaine and I shot my baby down 

I shot her down then I went to bed

I tucked that lovin' .44 beneath my head 

 

I shot her down because she made me slow 

I thought I was her daddy but she had five more

 

Cocaine Blues

Sung, with slightly changing lyrics by: Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash, George Thorogood, Merle Haggard and others.

This is the George Thorogood version. Some good guitar work here.

I really like this song, and am probably overthinking it, but The Wanderer by Dion might be criticized by some people in some quarters. The guy drives from town to town seducing pretty girls. He loves them then he leaves them because to him they’re interchangeable. They don’t even know his name. Should he find himself falling for one of them, he  simply hops in his car and drives to the next town for the next pretty girl. A sad dude all the same.

 

A similar theme can be found in Travelin’ Man by Rick Nelson.
