A Song A Day – March 29th: If You Try Sometimes…You Get What You Need

28 03 2011

Today’s song is one of my favourites, especially this cover. It’s a cracking version of the rolling stones uber-excellent song, You can’t always get what you want. This version if by a group called Band From TV, and features famed actor Hugh Laurie in the lineup. It’s a stonkingly brilliant rendition. I hope you enjoy it – I’m a little pressed for time at the moment. Now isn’t the best time to be blogging. RL things to sort out – but, I wanted to get this out there whilst I think about it.

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 a 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, yeah,
You just might find
You get what you need!

I went down to the demonstration
To get our fair share of abuse,
Singing, “we 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, yeah,
You just might find
You get what you need!

So, I went 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 flavour, cherry red.
I song my song to Mr. Jimmy,
And he said one word to me and that was “dead”.

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, yeah,
You just might find,
But if you try sometimes, yeah,
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…
