Jagger Richards write Midnight Rambler in Positano Italy








Positano









Mick




Mick Jagger did an Interview with Rolling Stone Magazine in 1995 .. This little tidbit below is an excerpt from that interview. Mick talks about being on a little vacation in Positano with Keith. They wrote Midnight rambler in that little town on the Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy in the Summer of 1968.


Question :  Who wrote “Midnight Rambler”?

Mick Jagger : That’s a song Keith and I really wrote together. We were on a holiday in Italy. In this very beautiful hill town, Positano, for a few nights. Why we should write such a dark song in this beautiful, sunny place, I really don’t know. We wrote everything there – the tempo changes, everything. And I’m playing the harmonica in these little cafes, and there’s Keith with the guitar.

This is a great shot of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, hanging out, maybe writing one of their many hit songs. Look at Mick looking so nonchalant, smoking a cigarette, as Keith plays on a Acoustic Guitar. You gotta love this picture.

Remembering Amy Winehouse






AMY WINEHOUSE







AMY WINEHOUSE

"LOVE is a LOSING GAME"

Listen to this soulful performance by Amy Winehouse, singing Love is a Losing Game at the Brit Awards. She's pouring her heart out over her low-life husband Blake, who it is widely believed was the person who got her onto hard drugs and a path towards a downward spiral of ill health.

The official coroners report stated that Amy died of Alcohol Toxicity from consuming a too much alcohol and too short a time, in affect poisoning her body and bloodstream. The autopsy confirmed that Winehouse had 350mg of alcohol in her bloodstream causing her death. 


Amy had many daemons, so they say, she struggle with Drug Addiction, Alcohol addiction and Bulimia. Sadly Amy didn't make it. She was unable to overcome her daemons before she died. There have been many Rock Stars who have had huge drug problems and still made it. They abused drugs, but didn't die and cleaned up their acts in time to prevent dying. Case in point Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, and most famous of all Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones. Amy and others, such as; Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, and Jim Morrison of The Doors. Sadly, unlike others who made it, these artists were unable to get clean before their apparent deaths including Amy Winehouse. Amy Winehouse was a great talent. It would have been wonderful if she made it past that critical point that took her bright life.

We remember Amy Winehouse, by listening to her music, and soulful recordings as we pray for her soul, and lament her not making it. God Bless Amy.






Sadly for Amy Winehouse

Love was a Losing Game

Steven Tyler Goes Down on a MUFFIN

 


AEROSMITH

STEVEN TYLER & JOE PERRY




WALK THIS WAY

AEROSMITH



The MEANING of  WALK THIS WAY
This song is about a promiscuous cheerleader who leads a schoolboy through his first sexual experience. It's an extremely sexual song that played perfectly to Aerosmith's young male fanbase while being ambiguous enough to get airplay. Lead singer Steven Tyler, who wrote the lyrics, said, "'Walk This Way' came out all at once. If you listen to the words, they're all really filthy. If you listen closely you'll hear that I disguised it quite cleverly." (Here's that full interview with Steven Tyler.)
"Walk This Way" is the title of Aerosmith's 1999 autobiography. In the book, Steven Tyler deconstructs the lyrics to this song. Here's the breakdown:

"Backstroke Lover" is our hero masturbating. His father catches him, and explains that he will someday experience the real thing. One day, he encounters the cheerleader along with "her sister and her cousin," and has a glorious sexual experience (Tyler cops to fantasies about two women at once, which is where this came from).

The "walk this way" line is the experienced girl showing the young man where to put his finger - showing him how to walk. Inspiration came from make-out parties where this kind of thing could happen.

Tyler points out that while the lyrics are sexually charged, it is the girl who is in control.
  • Aerosmith wasn't well known when this came out, and the song didn't chart when it was first released in September 1975. A year later, after their album Rocks took off, the single was reissued and became a hit. They re-released "Dream On" the next year.
  • Joe Perry came up with the guitar riff for this song and the band developed the track, but four days later (an eternity in their recording schedule at the time) Steven Tyler still didn't have any words for the song. With no lyrics forthcoming, they considered dumping the track, but inspiration struck when the band (minus Tyler and Perry) took a break and went for a walk around New York City, where they were recording.

    The movie Young Frankenstein was playing in Times Square, so they went to see it. The film is a comedy starring Gene Wilder, and there is a famous scene in the movie where Igor (Marty Feldman) tells Dr. Frankenstein to "Walk This Way," meaning to follow him. Dr. Frankenstein imitates Igor's walk, which the band thought was hilarious. When they saw Tyler the next day, they informed him that the title of the song would be "Walk This Way."
    Tyler, however, tells a different story regarding the inspiration for the title. He told our writer Bruce Pollock: "The song title evolved from watching The Three Stooges on TV. They walked this way and that."
  • When Steven Tyler finally came up with lyrics for this song, he entered the studio to record it and realized he left the lyrics in the cab. His incredulous bandmates thought he was just stalling, and they got in another of their many fights. Tyler walked to the stairwell, let out a primal scream, and wrote new lyrics on the wall, since he forgot to bring paper with him. The original lyrics he left in the cab were never recovered.
  • In our interview with Joe Perry, he explained that he came up with the famous guitar riff at a soundcheck in Hawaii. It was inspired by the New Orleans funk band The Meters, and it all came together when drummer Joey Kramer, joined in. Said Perry: "I just kind of let go and this riff started coming out of the left hand and the right hand, and then it needed a bridge, and I just kind of danced around on the fretboard a little bit, and before I knew it, I had the guts of the song. It had that kind of funk thing to it."
  • Joe Perry used a talkbox during the chorus. This was the first time the device was used on a hit song. The talkbox allows a guitarist to make strange vocal sounds by "talking" into a vinyl tube attached to the unit, which is hooked up to the output of the guitar amp. Perry also used a talkbox on "Sweet Emotion."
  • This became one of the first mainstream rap hits when it was covered by Run-D.M.C. in 1986. Steven Tyler and Joe Perry performed this with the rap trio, and it became Run-D.M.C.'s first hit, going to US #4. This collaboration led to many more among prominent rappers and rock musicians, including "Bring The Noise" by Public Enemy and Anthrax, and "Encore" by Jay-Z and Linkin Park.
  • DJs often ripped the labels off their records so no one would know what beats they were using when they performed. Jam Master Jay got one of these records from another DJ, which turned out to be an Aerosmith album. He was working on sampling the opening break when producer Rick Rubin heard it and explained it was a famous rock song. This gave Rubin the idea to have Run-D.M.C. cover the song. The band didn't like the idea of rapping Aerosmith's lyrics, with DMC explaining in Rolling Stone (October 15, 2009), "We said, this is hillbilly gibberish, this is bulls--t." With some help from Run's brother Russell Simmons, Rubin convinced them to do it. He grew up in the suburbs listening to groups like Aerosmith, and knew it would be a great way for the group to crossover to a white audience.
  • The Run-D.M.C. video is the first that Tyler and Perry appeared in. It was the first time many young Aerosmith fans saw what they looked like. Aerosmith would use MTV to expand their audience for the rest of their career, making videos for most of their singles, starting with "Dude (Looks Like A Lady)" in 1988, which won two MTV Video Music Awards.
    The first video Aerosmith made was for their 1982 song "Lightning Strikes," but MTV passed on that one (here it is on YouTube). Joe Perry had left the band at that point.
     
  • The Run-D.M.C. cover launched Aerosmith's comeback. They were in drug rehab when it came out, but sobered up and released Permanent Vacation in 1987, which gave them a string of hits, their first since "Come Together" in 1978. The collaboration also boosted the band's profile in Europe, where Run-D.M.C. was huge.
  • This was used in an early episode of The Simpsons where the band performed the song at Moe's Tavern and let Moe sing along. Aerosmith was one of the first musical guest stars on the show; the episode aired November 21, 1991 and was called "Flaming Moe."
  • The city of Boston used this in a 1999 publicity campaign to cut back on jaywalking. They used it in commercials encouraging people to use crosswalks.
  • 'N Sync, Britney Spears, Mary J. Blige, and Nelly all sang on this with Aerosmith at the 2001 Super Bowl halftime show. The lines "I met a cheerleader, was a real young bleeder" and "You ain't seen nothin' til you're down on a muffin" seemed a little more interesting with Britney Spears performing.
  • On the "Rock and Roller Coaster" at Disney's MGM Studios, a virtual Aerosmith gives an introduction before you get on, Aerosmith songs play throughout the ride. When the ride opened, this was the only song that played, which may have instilled a deep hatred of the song among the Disney employees working the roller coaster. This ride is highly recommended by the Songfacts staff.
  • The then two leading British female pop bands Girls Aloud and Sugababes produced a cover version of this for the official single for the 2007 Comic Relief fundraiser. Their rendition reached #1 in the UK but the following year was voted runner-up in a poll by Total Guitar magazine to find out the worst cover of all time. Celine Dion's version of AC/DC's "You Shook Me All Night Long" came top of the list.
  • Steven Tyler told Rolling Stone magazine, April 15, 2004: "The Yardbirds' music is a gold mine waiting to be stumbled upon. Aerosmith did, because we grew up in that era. The riff in 'Walk This Way' is just us trying to explore the blues in the Yardbirds model."

Lyrics




Backstroke lover always hidin' 'neath the cover 'Till I talked to my daddy he say He said, you ain't seen noting 'Till you're down on a Muffin

Then you're sure to be a-changin' your ways
I met a cheerleader, was a real young bleeder All the times I can reminisce

Ah the best thing lovin' with her sister and her cousin Started with a little kiss, like this
See-saw swingin' with the boys in the school With your feet flyin' up in the air

Singin' hey diddle-diddle with the Kitty (Vagina) in the middle You be swingin' like you just didn't care

So I took a big chance at the high school dance With a missy who was ready to play Was it me she was foolin'?

'Cause she knew what she was doin' Taught me how to walk this way

She told me to
Walk this way, walk this way Walk this

SADE

"KISS of LIFE"



What can I say about Sade and her music. Well, for one, Sade and her music completely captivated me, back in the 80s when I was a young guy in my late 20s, Full of Life Love & Passion I was, and Sade beautiful Sultry Music really struck a chord with me. Her music put into words all the Love Passion and Romantic feelings I had for woman and being in relationships with them. She had her own style, her music was absolutely gorgeous, and like her song Smooth Operator, her music was so smooth, and Sade and her music was Super Cool. And like me at the time, I thought of myself as a Super Cool guy, fashionable, educated, well traveled, a Renaissance Man, and Man of The World, and Sade and her Cool Smooth Sultry Sounds fit me like a tee, and I just loved her. I Loved her style her music, her grace. The lyrics of her music were romantic, meaningful, passionate, and sincere, and I loved it. ANd I had a Crush on Sade too.

Dam I listened to that music, like it was going out of style, I listened to it a lot, for a long time too. And you know, as much as I loved her music  and was so into it, it suprised me when I realized recently that I don't listen to it as much any more. I still love it, but I must admit that I'm not so crazy about it as I once was. Not that the music isn't wonderful, or that I don't think it is anymore, no the music is just as great and beautiful as it ever was, and Sade's music can blow away any of and everything, all the crappy music they make today. Not even close. There is no one out there today who could ever dream of touching Sade. Taylor Swift? She SUCKS !!! As does Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, stupid Justin Timberlake and all the other SHITTY MUSICAL artist out there today, "They All SUCK," Big Time. It's so Sad! What the Hell Happened? WHAT THE FUCK? I just don't get it. Why doesn't anyone at all make any good music any more? WHY?

Anyway, Thank God for Great Musical Artist like the Great Sade Adu, who created quite a Good Body of the most beautiful, original music imaginable. 

Wow, I went off on a tangent, as I usually do when I think of The SHITTY MUSIC They make in the 21st Century, I just don't get it?

Anyway, back to loving Sade 's awesome music, today and back in the day, in the 1980's when Sade was making all her wonderful tunes. Yes, I was a young man in my 20s, everything is more intense when you're young, especially when it comes to Love and Passion and relationships with the opposite sex, in my case females. Sade channeled all my Romantic Passion for women and love that I had back then, and boy let me tell you, it was strong. Things just aren't the same when you get into you 50s ..





SADE


DIAMOND LIFE

GREAT ALBUM


There is not one artist out here of all the SHITTY MUSICAL Artists of The 21st CENTURY that could make anything near to this Wonderful Music that the Great SADE made in the 1980s. They Just Don't Make any good music at all any more. "WHAT THE FUCK?" I Don't Get It ! Whay the Hell Not? Cause all the so-called musicians of the present day all SUCK, No Talent what so-ever. There's no melody, no structure, and Shitty Lyrics. Thank God we have all the GREAT MUSIC of The 60s 70s & 80s and we can buy records from the past. I still have all my great Vinyl Albums, including SADE, The BEATLES, The ROLLING STONES, all the Great R&B artists and their Records, ROCK, and POP MUSIC of the 60s and 70s. I Love it.
