Hotel California--the Eagles

On a dark desert highway
Cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas
Rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance
I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night

There she stood in the doorway
I heard the mission bell
And I was thinkin' to myself
'This could be heaven or this could be hell
Then she lit up a candle
And she showed me the way
There were voices down the corridor
I thought I heard them say

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
Plenty of room at the Hotel California
Any time of year (any time of year)
You can find it here

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted
She got the Mercedes bends, uh
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys
That she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard
Sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember
Some dance to forget

So I called up the Captain
"Please bring me my wine"
He said, "We haven't had that spirit here since 1969"
And still those voices are calling from far away
Wake you up in the middle of the night
Just to hear them say

Welcome to the Hotel California
Such a lovely place (such a lovely place)
Such a lovely face
They livin' it up at the Hotel California
What a nice surprise (what a nice surprise)
Bring your alibis

Mirrors on the ceiling
The pink champagne on ice
And she said, "We are all just prisoners here of our own device"
And in the master's chambers
They gathered for the feast
They stab it with their steely knives
But they just can't kill the beast

Last thing I remember
I was running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
"Relax", said the night man
"We are programmed to receive
You can check out any time you like
But you can never leave"

Well East Coast girls are hip
I really dig those styles they wear
And the Southern girls, with the way they talk
They knock me out when I'm down there
The Midwest farmer's daughters
Really make you feel all right
And the Northern girls with the way they kiss
They keep their boyfriends warm at night

I wish they all could be California girls
(I wish they all could be California)
I wish they all could be California girls

The West Coast has the sunshine
And the girls all get so tanned
I dig a French bikini on Hawaiian Island dolls
By a palm tree in the sand
I been all around this great big world
And I've seen all kinds of girls
Yeah but I couldn't wait to get back to the States
Back to the cutest girls in the world

I wish they all could be California girls
(I wish they all could be California)
I wish they all could be California girls

I wish they all could be California girls
(Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California girls
(Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California girls
(Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California girls
(Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California girls
(Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)
I wish they all could be California girls
(Girls, girls, girls, yeah I dig the)

Girls--Dwight Twilley

Well, I've seen so many things
I've been all over the world
Well, I've had ups and downs
I've been over for a while
I thought I knew everything
Between the bad and the good
Guess I was wrong because
I misunderstood about
Girls, girls

Well, when I was young
My daddy sat down with me
He said a good life is hard
If you don't know what you need
Well, I guess he was right
Because the way that's it been
There's still one thing
I just can't understand and that's

Girls
They want you to tell
Them you love them
Girls
They're soft and
They're warm when you hug them
Girls
They'll tease and hurt you
When you need them
Girls
They cry when you say
That you'll leave them

Tell her what I told you
Tell me what she tells you
Tell her what you want to

Well, I've been so many places
I just shouldn't be
But then it felt so good
That it was torture to leave
They say you can't live without them
But can you live with?
I'm just one man but
I'm shaking a fist at those

Girls
They want you to tell
Them you love them
Girls
They're soft and
They're warm when you hug them
Girls
They'll tease and hurt you
When you need them
Girls
They cry when you say
That you'll leave them

Tell her that I love her
Tell her I don't love her
Tell her what you want to

Girls
They want you to tell
Them you love them
Girls
They're soft and
They're warm when you hug them
Girls
They'll tease and hurt you
When you need them
Girls
They cry when you say
That you'll leave them
Girls
They want you to tell
Them you love them
Girls
They're soft and
They're warm when you hug them
Girls
They'll tease and hurt you
When you need them
Girls
They cry when you say
That you'll leave them


Girls, girls
Girls, girls
Girls, girls

I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she would meet her connection
At her feet was her footloose man

No, you can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometime you find
You get what you need

I saw her today at the reception
A glass of wine in her hand
I knew she was gonna meet her connection
At her feet was her footloose man

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes, well, you might find
You get what you need

And I went down to the demonstration
To get my fair share of abuse
Singing, "We're gonna vent our frustration
If we don't we're gonna blow a fifty-amp fuse"
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes, well, you just might find
You get what you need

I went down to the Chelsea drugstore
To get your prescription filled
I was standing in line with Mr. Jimmy
And man, did he look pretty ill
We decided that we would have a soda
My favorite flavor, cherry red
I sung my song to Mr. Jimmy
Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was "dead"
I said to him
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You get what you need
You get what you need, yeah, oh baby

I saw her today at the reception
In her glass was a bleeding man
She was practiced at the art of deception
Well, I could tell by her blood-stained hands
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need

You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want
But if you try sometimes you just might find
You just might find
You get what you need, oh yeah

Meanwhile I'm still thinking

I got a little boogie but it ain't too clean
It's real low down and it's kinda mean
The dirty boogie
The dirty boogie
When I get low down, it's the dirty boogie for me

The dirty boogie (what's it called?)
The dirty boogie (Hey you all)
The dirty boogie (How's it go?)
The dirty boogie (Not too slow)
When I get low down, it's the dirty boogie for me

Well you rattle and shake, you moan and groan
A girl like you I could never bring home
The dirty boogie
The dirty boogie
When I get low down, it's the dirty boogie for me

The dirty boogie (what's it called?)
The dirty boogie (Hey you all)
The dirty boogie (How's it go?)
The dirty boogie (Not too slow)
When I get low down, it's the dirty boogie for me

They're shakin' their hips and scream and shout
And doin' things I can't even talk about
The dirty boogie (Catch my drift)
The dirty boogie
When I get low down, it's the dirty boogie for me

The dirty boogie (what's it called?)
The dirty boogie (Hey you all)
The dirty boogie (How's it go?)
The dirty boogie (Not too slow)
When I get low down, it's the dirty boogie for me

Charlie Daniels Band

And every time I hear a fiddle and it's cookin' just a little
And it makes me want to jump up and run
And if he's sawin' with some soul boogie woogie rock n' roll
Well, I know I'm gonna have some fun
And when the rosin starts to fly and I'm lookin' in the eye
Like I'm just about to blow a fuse
Mama, call the doctor 'cause your boy has got
The rockin' boogie Woogie Fiddle Country Blues
I met a man from Tennessee this is what he said to me
He said, "Music is a rhapsody"
He picked up his violin, stuck it underneath his chin
And started playin' me a symphony
I said, "That ain't the way it's done let me see that fiddle, son"
And I sawed him off a chorus or two
He said, "You better call the doctor 'cause I think I've got
The rockin' boogie Woogie Fiddle Country Blues"
And now if you want to play me some fiddle
I'm gonna tell you right from the start
You better play me some lowdown hoedown honkin'
I don't want to hear no funeral march
It's got to pick me up and roll me over
It's got to make me want to jump up and sing
If it ain't buzzin' like a beehive, kick it into overdrive
It don't mean a doggone thing
So let me rosin up my bow and I think that I can show you
The way I like to play this thing
Let's put some boogie rhythm in it, kick it on up to the limit
'Cause I'm gonna put some fire on these strings
And if you feel your feet start movin' to the beat
And you feel like you've got ants in your shoes
Well, you'd better call the doctor 'cause you've probably got
The rockin' Boogie Woogie Fiddle Country Blues
You better call the doctor
'Cause your boy has got The rockin'
Boogie Woogie Fiddle Country Blues
A Country Blues

The Devil went down to Georgia
He was lookin' for a soul to steal
He was in a bind 'cause he was way behind
And he was willin' to make a deal

When he came across this young man
Sawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hot
And the Devil jumped upon a hickory stump
And said, "Boy, let me tell you what"

"I guess you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player, too
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you
Now you play pretty good fiddle, boy, but give the Devil his due
I'll bet a fiddle of gold against your soul, 'cause I think I'm better than you"

The boy said, "My name's Johnny, and it might be a sin
But I'll take your bet, you're gonna regret
'Cause I am the best that's ever has been."

Johnny, rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard
'Cause Hell's broke loose in Georgia and the Devil deals the cards
And if you win, you get this shiny fiddle made of gold
But if you lose, the devil gets your soul

The Devil opened up his case and he said, "I'll start this show"
And fire flew from his fingertips as he rosined up his bow
And he pulled the bow across the strings and it made a evil hiss
And a band of demons joined in, and it sounded somethin' like this

[instrumental]

When the Devil finished, Johnny said, "Well, you're pretty good ol' son
But sit down in that chair right there
And let me show you how it's done"

"Fire on the Mountain", run, boys, run
The Devil's in the house of the risin' sun
Chicken in the bread pan pickin' out dough
Granny, does your dog bite? No, child, no

The Devil bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat
And he laid that golden fiddle on the ground at Johnny's feet
Johnny said, "Devil, just come on back if you ever wanna try again
I done told you once, you son of a b***h, I'm the best that's ever been."

he played
"Fire on the Mountain", run, boys, run
The Devil's in the house of the risin' sun
The chicken in the bread pan pickin' out dough
Granny, will your dog bite? No, child, no

Soul to Squeeze--Red Hot Chili Peppers

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4rBLGmbe80

I got a bad disease
But from my brain is where I bleed
Insanity it seems
Has got me by my soul to squeeze

Well all the love from thee
With all the dying trees I scream
The angels in my dreams
Have turned to demons of greed that's mean

[Chorus:]
Where I go I just don't know
I got to got to gotta take it slow
When I find my peace of mind
I'm gonna give you some of my good time


Today love smiled on me
It took away my face say please
All that you had to free
Just gotta let it be oh yeah

Oh, so polite indeed
Well I got everything I need
Oh make my days a breeze
And take away my self-destruction

It's bitter baby but it's very sweet
I rode a rollercoaster but I'm on my feet
Take me to your river let me on your shore
I'll be coming back baby I'll be coming back for more
I cannot forget but I will not ever
save your pleasure at my expense
oh, but I won't regret it never

[Chorus]


Where I go I just don't know
I might end up somewhere in Mexico
When I find my peace of mind
I'm gonna keep you til the end of time.

Now if you're feelin' kinda low 'bout the dues you've been paying
Future's coming much too slow
And you wanna run, but somehow you just keep on stayin'
Can't decide on which way to go

Yeah, yeah, yeah

I understand about indecision
But I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind

Now you're climbin' to the top of the company ladder
Hope it doesn't take too long
Cantcha see there'll come a day when it won't matter
Come a day when you'll be gone

Ohh, ohh

I understand about indecision
But I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind

Take a look ahead
Take a look ahead, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Now everybody's got advice, they just keep on givin'
Doesn't mean too much to me
Lots of people out to make believe they're livin'
Can't decide who they should be

Oh, oh

I understand about indecision
But I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind

Take a look ahead
Take a look ahead
Look ahead

Every generation
Blames the one before
And all of their frustrations
Come beating on your door
I know that I'm a prisoner
To all my Father held so dear
I know that I'm a hostage
To all his hopes and fears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

Oh, crumpled bits of paper
Filled with imperfect thought
Stilted conversations
I'm afraid that's all we've got
You say you just don't see it
He says it's perfect sense
You just can't get agreement
In this present tense
We all talk a different language
Talking in defense

Say it loud (say it loud), say it clear (oh say it clear)
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late (it's too late) when we die (oh when we die)
To admit we don't see eye to eye

So we open up a quarrel
Between the present and the past
We only sacrifice the future
It's the bitterness that lasts
So don't yield to the fortunes
You sometimes see as fate
It may have a new perspective
On a different day
And if you don't give up, and don't give in
You may just be okay

So say it loud, say it clear (oh say it clear)
You can listen as well as you hear
Because it's too late, it's too late (it's too late) when we die (oh when we die)
To admit we don't see eye to eye

I wasn't there that morning
When my Father passed away
I didn't get to tell him
All the things I had to say
I think I caught his spirit
Later that same year
I'm sure I heard his echo
In my baby's new born tears
I just wish I could have told him in the living years

Say it loud, say it clear (oh say it clear)
You can listen as well as you hear
It's too late (it's too late) when we die (it's too late when we die)
To admit we don't see eye to eye
So say it, say it, say it loud (say it loud)
Say it clear (come on say it clear)

Tears in Heaven (acoustic)--Eric Clapton

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

Would you know my name?
If I saw you in heaven
Would it be the same?
If I saw you in heaven

I must be strong
And carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven

Would you hold my hand?
If I saw you in heaven
Would you help me stand?
If I saw you in heaven

I'll find my way
Through night and day
'Cause I know I just can't stay
Here in heaven

Time can bring you down
Time can bend your knees
Time can break your heart
Have you begging please
Begging please

Beyond the door
There's peace, I'm sure
And I know there'll be no more
Tears in heaven

Would you know my name?
If I saw you in heaven
Would you be the same?
If I saw you in heaven

I must be strong
And carry on
'Cause I know I don't belong
Here in heaven

Sabaton - Primo Victoria

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qVHyl0P_P-M

Through the gates of hell
As we make our way to heaven
Through the nazi lines
Primo victoria
We've been training for years
Now we're ready to strike
As the great operation begins
We're the first wave on the shore
We're the first ones to fall
Yet soldiers have fallen before
In the dawn they will pay
With their lives as the price
History's written today
In this burning inferno
Know that nothing remains
As our forces advance on the beach
Aiming for heaven though serving in hell
Victory is ours their forces will fall
Through the gates of hell
As we make our way to heaven
Through the nazi lines
Primo victoria
On the 6th of june
On the shores of western europe 1944
D-day upon us
We've been here before
Used to this kind of war
Crossfire grind through the sand
Our orders were easy
It's kill or be killed
Blood on both sides will be spilled
In the dawn they will pay
With their lives as the price
History's written today
Now that we are at war
With the axis again
This time we know what will come
Aiming for heaven though serving in hell
Victory is ours their forces will fall
Through the gates of hell
As we make our way to heaven
Through the nazi lines
Primo victoria
On the 6th of june
On the shores of western europe 1944
They're fighting for
D-day upon us
6th of june 1944
Allies are turning the war
Normandy state of anarchy
Overlord
Aiming for heaven though serving in hell
Victory is ours their forces will fall
Through the gates of hell
As we make our way to heaven
Through the nazi lines
Primo victoria
On the 6th of june
On the shores of western europe 1944
They're fighting for
D-day upon us

Ride Across the River--Dire Straits

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndZWkNX-pUE

I'm a soldier of freedom in the army of the men
We are the chosen, we're the partisan, alright
Well the cause it is noble and the cause it is just
We are ready to pay with our lives if we must

Gonna ride across the river, deep and wide
Ride across the river to the other side

I'm a soldier of fortune, I'm a dog of war, yeah
And we don't give a damn-a who the killing is for
It's the same old story with a different name
Death or glory, it's the killing game

Gonna ride across the river deep and wide
Ride across the river to the other side

Oh, nothing gonna stop them as the day follows the night
Right becomes wrong, the left becomes the right
And they sing as they march with their flags unfurled
Today in the mountains, tomorrow the world

Gonna ride across the river, deep and wide
Ride across the river to the other side
Gonna ride across the river, deep and wide
Ride across the river to the other side

Viktor was born the spring of '44
And never saw his father anymore
A child of sacrifice, a child of war
Another son who never had
A father after Leningrad

Went off to school and learned to serve the state
Followed the rules and drank his vodka straight
The only way to live was drown the hate
A Russian life was very sad
But such was life in Leningrad

I was born in '49, a cold war kid in McCarthy's time
Stop 'em at the 38th parallel, blast those yellow Reds to hell
And cold war kids are hard to kill under their desks in an air raid drill
Haven't they heard we won the war?
What do they keep on fighting for?

Viktor was sent to some Red Army town
Served out his time, became a circus clown
The greatest happiness he ever found
Was making Russian children glad
And children lived in Leningrad

But children lived in Levittown, and hid in the shelters underground
'Til the Soviets turned their ships around and tore their Cuban missiles down
And in that bright October sun, we knew our childhood days were done
And I watched my friends go off to war
What do they keep on fighting for?

And so my child and I came to this place
To meet him eye to eye and face to face
He made my daughter laugh, then we embraced
We never knew what friends we had
Until we came to Leningrad.
