It's late in the day, but here's a little gem from the Band on the Run era - Helen Wheels! It's a great driving song!

It's a day late, but here goes.

Figure Of Eight

Well, you've got me dancing in a figure of eight.
Don't know if I'm coming or going, I'm early or late.
Round and round the ring I go,
I want to know, I want to know, hey.

Why can't we travel a continuous line?
Make love reliable covenant all the time.
Up and down the hills I go,
I got to know, I got to know.

Is it better to love one another than to go for a walk in the dark?
Is it better to love than to give in to hate?
Yeah, we'd better take good care of each other,
Avoid slipping back off the straight and narrow.
It's better by far than getting stuck in a figure of eight.

Well, figure it out for yourself little girl,
It don't go nowhere at all.
It's nothing more than a tape loop
In a big dance hall.

Oh no, you've got me running in a figure of eight,
Don't know if I'm coming or going, I'm early or late, early or late.
Round and round I go,
I want to know, I want to know.

Say, is it better to love one another than to go for a walk in the dark?
Is it better to love than to give in to hate?
Yes, we'd better take good care of one another
And avoid slipping back off the straight and narrow.
It's better by far than getting stuck in a figure of eight.

And now for today's selection. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Helen Wheels

Said farewell to my last hotel, it was never much kind of abode.
Glasgow Town never brought me down when I was heading out on the road.
Carlisle City never looked so pretty and the Kendal freeway's fast.
Slow down, driver, wanna stay alive, I wanna make this journey last.

Helen, hell on wheels, ain't nobody else gonna know the way she feels.
Helen, hell on wheels, and they're never gonna take her away.

M6 South down to Liverpool, where they play the West Coast sound.
Sailor Sam, he came from Birmingham, but he never will be found.
Doing fine when a London sign greets me like a long lost friend,
Mister motor, won't you check her out? She's gotta take me back again.

Helen, hell on wheels, ain't nobody else gonna know the way she feels.
Helen, hell on wheels, and they're never gonna take her away.

Got no time for a rum and lime, I wanna get my right foot down. (get my right foot down)
Shake some dust off of this old bus, I gotta get her out of town. (get her out of town)
Spend the day upon the motorway, where the carburettors blast, (carburettors blast)
Slow down, driver, wanna stay alive, I wanna make this journey last.

Helen, hell on wheels, ain't nobody else gonna know the way she feels.
Helen, hell on wheels, and they're never gonna take her away.

Say "Bye-bye" (bye-bye)
Two, three, four,
One, two, three, four,
One, two, three, four,
One, two, three, four,
One, two, three, four, hey.

Default Re: Paul Song of the Day

Shall we take a look at "Mull Of Kintyre"? Paul wrote it during the summer of 1976. Kintyre is a Scottish peninsula where Paul' s was and the title refers to the southernmost tip of the cape. Why this song didn't become a major hit for him in the US is beyond me. I think he did an excellent job with it. The bagpipes just seem to fit so perfectly, but of course Paul made sure he wrote it that way.

Mull Of Kintyre

Mull of Kintyre, oh, mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here, oh, Mull of Kintyre.

Far have I travelled and much have I seen,
Dark distant mountains with valleys of green.
Past painted deserts, the sunset's on fire
As he carries me home to the Mull of Kintyre.

Mull of Kintyre, oh, mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here, oh, Mull of Kintyre

Sweep through the heather like deer in the glen,
Carry me back to the days I knew then.
Nights when we sang like a heavenly choir
Of the life and the time of the Mull of Kintyre.

Mull of Kintyre, oh, mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here, oh, Mull of Kintyre.

Smiles in the sunshine and tears in the rain,
Still take me back where my memories remain.
Flickering embers grow higher and higher,
As they carry me back to the Mull of Kintyre.

Mull of Kintyre, oh, mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here, oh, Mull of Kintyre.

Mull of Kintyre, oh, mist rolling in from the sea
My desire is always to be here, oh, Mull of Kintyre.
Woohoo.

I especially like Paul's quote about putting out this kind of a song with bag-pipes and all, at the height of the punk (and disco) era !

Not really high on my playlist, but this was Paul's so-called answer to the BBC for banning "Give Ireland Back To The Irish".

Mary Had A Little Lamb

Mary had a little lamb,
Its fleece was white as snow,
And everywhere that Mary went
That lamb was sure to go.
And you could hear them singing
"La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la."

It followed her to school one day,
It was against the rules.
Made the children laugh and play
To see a lamb at school.
And you could hear them singing
"La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la."
Everybody singing
"La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la."

Soon, the teacher turned it out,
But still it lingered near.
Waited patiently about
Till Mary did appear.
You could hear them singing
"La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la."
Everybody singing
"La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la."

"But the lamb loved Mary so."
The eager children cry.
"And Mary loves the lamb, you know."
The teacher did reply.
And you could hear them singing
"La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la."
Everybody singing
"La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la,
La, la, la, la, ooh."

New day, new song.....how about "Heather"? I'm not a big fan of "Driving Rain", but I really like this song. It sounds like it should be theme music to a movie or something. And, being a piano player, I'm a sucker for a good piano part. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Having only heard this song a couple of times, I may have to hear it again before I give it a review.

Heather

Ooh la la, ooh la la la,
Ooh la la, ooh la la la,
Ooh la la, ooh la la,
Ooh la la, ooh.

I'm gonna fly to the moon, check in outer space.
Find me a suitable plot, build myself a place.
There, I will stay for a year and a day,
Until the cares of my life blow away,
And I will dance to her runcible tune
With the queen of my heart, mm.
(Heather)

Nah, your choices don't suck, Rell'. I couldn't comment on your last one because I haven't listened to that cd as much as I'd like.
But, I'll have a go at picking today's McCartney song. It may be a bit more appropriate for tomorrow, but since you got me in a Flowers in the Dirt mood with one of your earlier choices, the song of the day is "This One". [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Lovely song and lyrics. Hope you like today's choice!

<font size="2" face="Tahoma, Arial, sans-serif">No! They don't suck! I also don't listen to Driving Rain enough to know this one. But it recalled to my mind the other song Heather which is so cute...remember the one.. [img]graemlins/musicnotes.gif[/img] "Put it all together, in any kind of weather...and what've you got? You got Heather, Heather, Heather..." [img]graemlins/musicnotes.gif[/img]

hehe, Paul is a cutie.

"This One" is great...I remember that from the concert! I was so happy to see Paul and hear him do this one live!!

"This one" did sound nice in concert, didn't it?
