ATF: Wanton Wickedness

This weekly series will include as many of my all-time favorite (ATF) tunes as I can get my grubby little hands on (so to speak).  Now, each one included in each edition will have some connection with the other—albeit only as a figment of my imagination, but they will not be numbered.  For I just cannot bring myself to rate some higher than others.  So, this will not be a countdown, but if you are enjoying them as much as I do, it won’t matter.  Besides, with no countdown, this could go on forever and ever!  Oh, and despite the fact that there is absolutely no way your musical tastes could be as exquisite as mine, I welcome any suggestions you might dare to make.  For I am, after all, quite magnanimous by nature.

Black Magic Woman
Santana
Got a black magic woman
Got a black magic woman
I got a black magic woman
Got me so blind I can't see
That she's a black magic woman
She's tryin' to make a devil out of me

Don't turn your back on me baby
Don't turn your back on me baby
Yes don't turn your back on me baby
Stop messin' 'round with your tricks
Don't turn your back on me baby
You just might pick up my magic sticks

Got your spell on me baby
Got your spell on me baby
Yes you’ve got your spell on me baby
Turnin’ my heart into stone
I need you so bad
Magic woman
I can't leave you alone



Evil Woman
Electric Light Orchestra (ELO)
You made a fool of me
But them broken dreams
Have got to end

Hey woman
You got the blues
Yes you
 Ain't got no one
Else to use
There's an
Open road
That leads nowhere
So just
Make some miles
Between here and there
There's a hole in my head
Where the rain comes in
You took my body
And played to win
Ha ha woman
It's a cryin’ shame
But you
Ain't got nobody
Else to blame

Evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman

Rolled in
From another town
Hit some
Gold too hot
To settle down
But a fool and his money
Soon go
Separate ways
And you found that fool
Lyin' in a daze
Ha ha woman
What you gonna do
You destroyed all the virtues
That the Lord gave you
It's so good
That you're feelin’ pain
Yes you better get your face on board
The very next train

Evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman
You’re an evil woman
Evil woman

Hey
Hey hey hey

Hey
Hey hey hey

Hey
Hey hey

Evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman
You’re an evil woman
Evil woman

Evil woman
How you done me wrong
But now you're tryin' to wail
A different song
Ha ha funny
How you broke me up
You made the wine
Now you drink the cup
I came runnin'
Every time you cried
Thought I saw love
Smilin' in your eyes
Ha ha honey
Very nice to know
That you
Ain't got no place
Left to go
Oh
Oh
Oh

Evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman
You’re an evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman
Evil woman
You’re an evil woman
Evil woman
Such an evil woman
Evil woman
Alright

A Sunday Drive

Back during our childhood, our parents would often load up my brother and me after Sunday morning church services for a leisurely drive around where we lived.  Even though we were seeing mostly familiar sights, it was still good to see them again, and this is why “A Sunday Drive” sounded about right for the name of a series revisiting familiar sites that are well worth seeing again and again.  The link below the image is to the site itself, and the image is linked to the post it was first included in here.

Sites To See #404

The SOLE purpose of this series is to help call attention to sites that I think many would find most interesting—in one way or another.  Just to be clear, inclusion in this series is not necessarily meant as an endorsement, and I have included sites that I found rather disturbing.  The link below each image is to the site itself, and each image is linked to the particular post from which it was taken when applicable.  Please, go see for yourself.  Oh, and as of August 10, 2012, I will be no longer including sites that have auto-play and word verification engaged.

ATF: Twofers

This weekly series will include as many of my all-time favorite (ATF) tunes as I can get my grubby little hands on (so to speak).  Now, each one included in each edition will have some connection with the other—albeit only as a figment of my imagination, but they will not be numbered.  For I just cannot bring myself to rate some higher than others.  So, this will not be a countdown, but if you are enjoying them as much as I do, it won’t matter.  Besides, with no countdown, this could go on forever and ever!  Oh, and despite the fact that there is absolutely no way your musical tastes could be as exquisite as mine, I welcome any suggestions you might dare to make.  For I am, after all, quite magnanimous by nature.



The Load Out/Stay
Jackson Browne
Now the seats
Are all empty
Let the roadies take the stage
Pack it up and tear it down
They're the first to come
And last to leave
Workin’ for that minimum wage
They'll set it up in another town
Tonight the people were so fine
They waited there in line
And when they got up on their feet
They made the show
And that was sweet
But I can hear the sound
Of slammin’ doors
And foldin’ chairs
And that's a sound they'll never know
Now roll them cases out
And lift them amps
Haul them trusses down
And get 'em up them ramps
'Cause when it comes to movin’ me
You know you guys are the champs
But when that last guitar's been packed away
You know I still want to play
So just make sure you got it all set to go
Before you come for this piano

But the band's on the bus
And they're ready to go
We've got to drive all night
And do a show in Chicago
Or Detroit
I don't know
We do so many shows in a row
And these towns all look the same
We just pass the time in our hotel rooms
And wander 'round backstage
‘Til those lights come up
And we hear that crowd
And we remember why we came

Now we got
Country and Western
On the bus
R and B
We got disco
In eight tracks
And cassettes
In stereo
We've got
Rural scenes
And magazines
We've got truckers on CB
We've got Richard Pryor on the video
We got time to think of the ones we love
While the miles roll away
But the only time that seems too short
Is the time that we get to play
People you've got the power over what we do
You can sit there and wait
Or you can pull us through
Come along
Sing the song
You know that you can't go wrong
'Cause when that morning sun comes beatin’ down
You're going to wake up in your town
But we'll be scheduled to appear
A thousand miles away from here

So people stay
Just a little bit longer
We want to play
Just a little bit longer
Now if the promoter don't mind
And the union don't mind
If we take a little time
And we leave it all behind
And sing
One more song

Oh won’t you stay
Just a little bit longer
Please
Please
Please
Say you will
Say you will

Oh won’t you stay
Just a little bit longer
Oh
Won’t you stay
Just a little bit longer
Yeah
Yeah

And if the promoter don’t mind
And the brothers don’t mind
If we take a little time
And Leave it all behind
And sing
One more song

Feeling That Way/Anytime
Journey
Opened my eyes
To a new kind of way
All the good times
That you saved

Are you feelin’
You’re feelin' that way too
Or am I just
Am I just a fool

When the summer’s gone
She’ll be there
Standin’ by the light
Once she’s been to where
She’s gone to
She should know
Wrong from right

Is she feelin’
Are you feelin’
You’re feelin’ that way too
Or am I just
Am I just a fool

A new road’s waitin’
You touched my life
Whoa oh
Soft and warm
On a summer’s night
You’re the only one
I told you
The only one I love
The lovely one
Lovely one
I’m thinkin’ of

When the summer’s gone
She’ll be there
Standin’ by the light
Once she’s been to where
She’s gone to
She should know
Wrong from right

Is she feelin’
Are you feelin’
You’re feelin' that way too
Whoa oh
Oh yeah yeah yeah
You’re feelin’ that way

When the summer’s gone
She’ll be there
Standin’ by the light
Once she’s been to where
She’s gone to
She should know
Wrong from right

Is she feelin’

With my arms a mile wide
Hopin’ and prayin’
For you
Listen to me
And enlighten me
Yeah
I hope that you need me too
‘Cause

Ooh

Anytime that you want me
Ooh
Ooh
Anytime that you need me

Give me
All of your sunshine
A spark is all I need
To take it away
All of the shadows
Well what more can I say
Yeah yeah

Oh
Anytime
At all
Anytime at all
Anytime at all

Ooh

Anytime that you want me
Ooh

Anytime that you need me
Ooh

Anytime that you want me to
Ooh

Anytime that you want me
Ooh
Ooh
Anytime that you need me
Ooh
Ooh
Anytime that you want me to
