Song of the Day: Little Suzi by Tesla

Little Suzi

Little Suzi’s on the up, looking for a get-away
Ruby tries to bring her down, she’s lookin’ for another way
Little Suzi’s on the up, headin’ for the spotlights
Ruby finally gets up, lookin’ for some quiet night

And the music makes her feel so hot
Ooh and she’ll smile for the camera with all she’s got
Don’t bring her down, she’s a lot like you
She’ll be richer by far if her dreams come true

Little Suzi’s on the up

Little Suzi’s on the up, now suddenly it’s not a game
Ruby’s got to give up, ’cause Suzi’s plainly set on pain
Little Suzi’s on the up, cost in cost, your point is made
Ruby’s gonna hang around, to make sure Suzi’s okay

And the music makes her feel so hot
Ooh and she’ll smile for the camera with all she’s got
Don’t bring her down, she’s a lot like you
She’ll be richer by far if her dreams come true

Don’t bring her down, she’s a lot like you
She’ll be richer by far if her dreams come true

Little Suzi’s on the up

And the music makes her feel so hot
Ooh and she’ll smile for the camera with all she’s got
Don’t bring her down, she’s a lot like you
She’ll be richer by far if her dreams come true

Don’t you bring her down, she’s a lot like you
She’ll be richer by far when her dreams come true

Little Suzi’s on the up, oh yes she is, ow!
Now she’s on the up, little Suzi’s on the up
Heading for the spotlight, oh little Suzi
Oh and the music makes her feel so hot, go little Suzi, yeah
Oh, yeah yeah, oh yeah

Song of the Day: Rock Me by Great White

Great White

Rock Me

Sweet little baby, you don’t have to go
Little baby, tell me you won’t go
We’d be so good together if we had the time
‘Cause being alone is a nowhere state of mind

Loving ain’t no crime, oh no
I see your man ain’t here, he don’t care
The way of the night has gone and we’ll move on
Got to find a way to face another day

I search the world for someone I’ll never find
Someone who ain’t the hurting kind
If you stay the night, oh yeah
We’ll make the wrong seem right

So come on now and
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
We’ll burn in love tonight

Sweet little baby, oh don’t you go
You ain’t so innocent, I know
I know your heart’s like mine, oh yeah
And I will find the time to make you mine
And if your love goes bad, if it makes you sad
But I’ll be back for more at your door

Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
Before the morning light, we’ll burn with love tonight
Burn with love tonight

And when your man don’t care, I will be there
Still be loving real good love, so baby now
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, come on, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
There’s no wrong or right we’ll burn with love
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, come on, rock me, roll me through the night
Rock me, rock me, roll me through the night
There’s nothing left to do but make sweet love to you
Come on and rock me

Song of the Day: The Zoo by the Scorpions

scorpions3

The Zoo

The job is done and I go out
Another boring day
I leave it all behind me now
So many worlds away

I meet my girl, shes dressed to kill
And all we gonna do
Is walk around to catch the thrill
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

Enjoy the zoo
And walk down 42nd street
You wanna be excited too
And you will feel the heat

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

We eat the night, we drink the time
Make our dreams come true
And hungry eyes are passing by
On streets we call the zoo

Song of the Day: Cold Day In Hell by Steeler

Cold Day In Hell

Dream stealer, disbeliever
Don’t take a chance on me
High risk, a shot in the dark

I come easy, but I don’t come free

Shot down, kicked in the teeth
Call me crazy, call me a fool, yeah
Lay the odds, roll the dice
But don’t tell me I’m breaking the rules

It’ll be a cold day in hell
You’re freezing me, can’t you tell
On a cold day in hell
How much of your soul can you sell

Empty eyes of heartless friends
The night is mine again
Bitter streets of evil stares
No one listens, no one cares

But cold steel is made to last
And chains of gold are broken fast
Cold city ain’t freezing me
Things aren’t what they seem to be

Song of the Day: Number of the Beast by Iron Maiden

Number of the Beast

“Woe to you, Oh Earth and Sea, for the Devil sends the
beast with wrath, because he knows the time is short…
Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the
beast for it is a human number, its number is Six hundred and
sixty six.”

I left alone my mind was blank
I needed time to think to get the memories from my mind

What did I see can I believe that what I saw
that night was real and not just fantasy

Just what I saw in my old dreams were they
reflections of my warped mind staring back at me

‘Cos in my dream it’s always there the evil face that twists my mind
and brings me to despair

The night was black was no use holding back
‘Cos I just had to see was someone watching me
In the mist dark figures move and twist
Was this all for real or some kind of hell
666 the number of the beast
Hell and fire was spawned to be released

Torches blazed and sacred chants were praised
As they start to cry hands held to the sky
In the night the fires burning bright
The ritual has begun Satan’s work is done
666 the number of the beast
Sacrifice is going on tonight

This can’t go on I must inform the law
Can this still be real or just some crazy dream
But I feel drawn towards the evil chanting hordes
They seem to mesmerise me … can’t avoid their eyes
666 the number of the beast
666 the one for you and me

I’m coming back I will return
And I’ll possess your body and I’ll make you burn
I have the fire I have the force
I have the power to make my evil take it’s course

Song of the Day: Love Walks In by Van Halen

vanhalen

Love Walks In

Contact! is all it takes
To change your life to lose your place in time
Contact! asleep or awake
Coming around you may wake up to find
Questions deep within your eyes,
Now more than ever you realize

Chorus:
And then you sense a change
Nothing feels the same
All your dreams are strange, love comes walkin’ in
Some kind of alien
Waits for the opening
Then simply pulls a string

Another world, some other time
You lay your sanity on the line
Familiar faces, familiar sights
Reach back remember with all your might
Ohh there she stands in a silken gown
Silver lights shining down

Chorus:
And then you sense a change
Nothing feels the same
All your dreams are strange, love comes walkin’ in
Some kind of alien
Waits for the opening
Then simply pulls a string

Love comes walkin’ in

Solo

Sleep and dream that’s all I crave
I travel far across the milky way
To my master I become a slave
‘Til we meet again some other day
Where silence speaks as loud as war
The Earth returns to what it was before

Chorus:
And then you sense a change
Nothing feels the same
All your dreams are strange, love comes walkin’ in
Some kind of alien
Waits for the opening
Then simply pulls a string

Love comes walkin’ in

Baby pull the string

Love comes walkin’ in

Love comes walkin’ in, yeah

Song of the Day: Holy Diver by Ronnie James Dio

Holy Diver

Mmmmhhh mhmm, yeah yeah
Holy Diver
You’ve been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh what’s becoming of me

Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he’s clean
Oh don’t you see what I mean

Gotta get away
Holy Diver

Shiny diamonds
Like the eyes of a cat in the black and blue
Something is coming for you
Look out

Race for the morning
You can hide in the sun ’till you see the light
Oh we will pray it’s all right

Gotta get away, get away

Between the velvet lies
There’s a truth that’s hard as steel
The vision never dies
Life’s a never ending wheel

Holy Diver
You’re the star of the masquerade
No need to look so afraid

Jump, jump
Jump on the tiger
You can feel his heart but you know he’s mean
Some light can never be seen, yeah

Holy Diver
You’ve been down too long in the midnight sea
Oh what’s becoming of me
No, no

Ride the tiger
You can see his stripes but you know he’s clean
Oh don’t you see what I mean

Gotta get away, get away
Gotta get away, get away
Holy diver, soul survivor
You’ re the one whose clean
Holy Diver, Holy Diver
Never come to knew, coming after you
Holy Diver
Holy Diver, yeah

Alright, get away, get away, get away
Holy diver, holy diver, holy diver mmhhmmm

Song of the Day: The Flame by Cheap Trick

Cheap Trick

The Flame

Another night slowly closes in
And I feel so lonely
Touching heat freezing on my skin
I pretend you still hold me
I’m going crazy, I’m losing sleep
I’m in too far, I’m in way too deep over you
I can’t believe you’re gone
You were the first, you’ll be the last

Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon
Remember, after the fire, after all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame

Watching shadows move across the wall
I feel so frightened
I wanna run to you, I wanna call
But I’ve been hit by lightning
Just can’t stand up for fallin’ apart
Can’t see through this veil across my heart, over you
You’ll always be the one
You were the first, you’ll be the last

Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon.
Remember, after the fire, after all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame

I’m going crazy, I’m losing sleep
I’m in too far, I’m in way too deep over you
You’ll always be the one
You were the first, you’ll be the last

Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Whenever you need someone
To lay your heart and head upon.
Remember, after the fire, after all the rain
I will be the flame
I will be the flame

Whatever you want, I’ll give it to you
Wherever you go, I’ll be with you
And whatever you want, I’ll give it to you

Song of the Day: Too Late For Love by Def Leppard

Too Late For Love

Somewhere in the distance, I hear the bells ring
Darkness settles on the town as the children start to sing
And the lady ‘cross the street, she shuts out the night
There’s a cast of thousands waitin’ as she turns out the light

But it’s too late, too late, too late
Too late for love
Too late, too late, too late
Too late

London boys are gazin’, girls go hand in hand
With a pocket full of innocence, their entrance is grand
And the queen of the dream, stands before them all
She stretches out her hand as the curtains start to fall

But it’s too late, too late, too late
Too late for love
Too late, too late, it’s too late
Too late

Standin’ by the trapdoor, aware of me and you
Are the actor and the clown, they’re waiting for their cue
And there’s a lady over there, she’s acting pretty cool
But when it comes to playin’ life, she always plays the fool

But it’s too late, too late, it’s too late
Too late for love
Too late, it’s too late, too late
Too late

Is it all too late?
Much too late?
Can’t you see it’s all too late?
Yeah, it’s too late

Too late, too late, too late
Too late for love
Too late, too late, too late
Too late

Too late, too late, too late
Too late for love
Too late, too late, too late

Book Review: With Paper For Feet by Jennifer A. McGowan

This is an extraordinary set of poems, in 3 sections. They are all very interesting, using a different view on some different subjects: Shakespeare, mythology , folklore, and others. I really liked the way the poems went together and how they flowed. And the words were very powerful in the way she wrote them. I really liked this collection of poetry.
