Bob Seger vs. Metallica


 


Turn The Page
Bob Seger
On a long and lonesome highway
East of Omaha
You can listen to the engine
Moanin’ out its one note song
You can think about the woman
Or the girl you knew
The night before
But your thoughts will soon be wanderin’
The way they always do
When you're ridin’ sixteen hours
And there's nothin’ much to do
And you don't feel much like ridin’
You just wish the trip was through

See here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin’ the star again
There I go
Turn the page

Well you walk into a restaurant
All strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you
As you're shakin’ off the cold
You pretend it doesn't bother you
But you just want to explode
Most times you can't hear 'em talk
Other times you can
All the same old clichés
Is that a woman
Or a man
You always seem outnumbered
So you don't dare make a stand

Here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin’ the star again
There I go
Turn the page

Out there in the spotlight
You're a million miles away
Every ounce of energy
You try to give away
As the sweat pours out your body
Like the music that you play
Later in the evenin’
As you lie awake in bed
With the echoes from the amplifiers
Ringin' in your head
You smoke the days last cigarette
Rememberin’ what she said

Ah here I am
On the road again
There I am
Up on the stage
Here I go
Playin’ the star again
There I go
There I go

There I go
Turn that page
There I go
Whoa oh
There I go

  1. Isn't it interesting how the video changes the perception of the lyrics...

  2. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Grace!!! Yeah, it really did, and what made Metallica's version even more interesting is that she was not acting (not that I have ever seen her up on the stage stripping, nor any of her porn movies, of course.)

  9. Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!! Yes, the sax seals the deal for me, but Metallica really did do a good job with it.
