A Song A Day: Feb 27th – Riding On The Storm

27 02 2011

It’s Sunday again??? Whoever stole the last 7 days would please be so kind as to return them, no questions asked! It’s been a good week, I’ve had some great fun reading, reblogging and supporting some other blogs. Pub Quizzage on the Tuesday, Hippodrome meet ‘n’ greet on the Wednesday, McDonalds on the Friday and a nice family night on the Saturday! It’s the little simple things that are the best!

I’m having a lot of fun on this blog at the moment. I look forward to Wordless Wednesdays more and more each week. It’s such a simplistic idea it’s genius. I’m enjoying posting instrumentals or instrumental videos/film clips on this day. If you are a blogger, and aren’t aware of Wordless Wednesdays, then I suggest you get into it. It’s simple, just put up a post with no words (it could be a thought provoking picture or video… for example, there are no rules as such) and head on over to the Wordless Wednesday site and put your name down. It’s super fun!

Very Important Notice: During March, I’m going to be taking a stab at the 30 Day Song Challenge. I’m going to create a seperate page for this and put the rules/instructions up there. I urge you all to take a go at this, it’ll only take a moment or two each and day and it’s one of those things that everyone will have personal motifs for. It should be a blast! – Make sure to tell your friends!

But that’s tomorrow onwards… what about today?! – It’s Sunday, so I feel like I need some Sunday music. I don’t have much planned for today, i’m going to help my Dad wash the car, and mum make dinner so if it rains, you can blame me. Sunday’s should be lazy days. Washing the car, maybe getting a freebie with the Sunday paper, watching Top Gear and putting your feet up in front of the football! So to sit along side that, you need something equally laid back.

Thanks to a friend in Belgium called Kevin, who is a human Doors museum, he hooked me up with all of their albums God bless him. I’d like to post a Doors song today, namely Riders on the Storm. I love this song so much, it’s very laid back and ambles along with a glorious jam which is so traditional of The Doors sound. This is one of their definitive pieces in my book.

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we’re born
Into this world we’re thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out alone
Riders on the storm

There’s a killer on the road
His brain is squirmin’ like a toad
Take a long holiday
Let your children play
If ya give this man a ride
Sweet family will die
Killer on the road, yeah

Girl ya gotta love your man
Girl ya gotta love your man
Take him by the hand
Make him understand
The world on you depends
Our life will never end
Gotta love your man, yeah

Wow!

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house we’re born
Into this world we’re thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out alone
Riders on the storm

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm

A great musician gone way to soon. It’s a shame and a waste. He was very young. I liked his music.

I guess it’s true what they say – only the good die young – Freddie, Hendrix, Kobain, Gary Moore, Rory Gallagher, Jeff Buckley and Lennon to name but a few.
