Sky Saxon

Μερικά από τα πιο χαρακτηριστικά κομμάτια των The Seeds (αργότερα χρησιμοποίησαν το όνομα Sky Saxon and The Seeds) του συγκροτήματος του Sky Saxon, που έφυγε από τη ζωή στις 25 Ιουνίου. Οι Seeds ήταν ένα από τα κορυφαία συγκροτήματα του Garage Rock και είχαν μεγάλη επιρροή στα punk συγκροτήματα της δεκαετίας του 70. Ο Sky Saxon εξακολούθησε να παραμένει ενεργός μουσικά σε όλη τη διάρκεια της ζωής του. Είχε επισκεφθεί τη χώρα μας για συναυλίες αρκετές φορές ενώ πρόσφατα (2008) συνεργάστηκε με τους The Smashing Pumpkins στο τραγούδι Superchrist. Αναλυτική βιογραφία του μπορείτε να βρείτε στην επίσημη σελίδα του.

Sky Saxon and The Seeds - Pushin' Too Hard



You're pushin' too hard, you're pushin' on me,
You're pushin' too hard, what you want me to be,
You're pushin' too hard, about the things you said,
You're pushin' too hard every night and day,
You're pushin' too hard, you're pushin' too hard,
On me...

Well all I want is to just be free,
Live my life the way I wanna be,
All I want is to just have fun,
Live my life like it's just begun,
But you're pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard,
On me...

You better listen girl what I'm telling you,
You better listen girl, or we are through,
You better stop all your foolin' around,
Stop the runnin' all over town.
'Cause you're pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard,
On me...

Well I know there's not a fish in the sea,
I know some wouldn't stay by me,
So if you ever don't think I'm gonna try,
You better ask yourself a reason why,
'Cause you're pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard,
On me...

Pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard on me...
Pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard, pushin' too hard on me...

The Seeds - Can't Seem To Make You Mine



I can't seem to make you mine
Kissing all around all the time
Flying around like a bee
Hurtin' everything you see

I try everything I know, oh
To make you wanna love me so, oh
The only things you do, oh
Is try to put the hurt on me, oh

Can't you see what you're doin' to me
You fill my heart with misery
With every breath every step I take
I'm more in love with you

Oh I can't go on like this
A little bit of love and not one kiss
I've gotta have your love every day
One never fade and stay, oh

Can't you see what you're doin' to me
You fill my heart with misery
With every breath, every step I take
I'm more in love with you, oh

I can't seem to make you mine, oh
I can't seem to make you mine, oh
Kissing all around all the time
I can't seem to make you mine, oh
Flying around like a bee
Hurting everything you see

I can't seem to make you mine, oh
I can't seem to make you mine, oh
I can't seem to make you mine
I can't seem to make you mine.

The Seeds - The wind blows your hair



Were up the sidewalk runnin down the street
Showin our love to the world we meet
Your days comin sunshine’s begun
Big machines are starting to hum
And the wind blows your hair

Two little children come walking by
looking just like you and I
Colored by some beautiful people
Flowers growin round the church house steeple
And the wind blows your hair

I've a feelin we've been here before
Angels singing as we pass through the door
Hand in hand we walk down the aisle
See their faces their starting to smile
their starting to smile

in my eyes I’m starting to cry
this is not a dream of you and I
I’ve never been this happy before
Hand in hand we walk out the door
And the wind blows your hair

Rice is falling on us everywhere
The scent of flowers uh fill the air
Children laughing out in the street
Everyone’s happy that we meet
And the wind blows your hair
And the wind blows your hair
And the wind blows your hair… hair …hair ….hair… hair.

The Seeds - It's a Hard Life



Everybody sitting over there, near the hot lights say yeah (yeah)
It's a hard life when you work from nine to five
Can't make enough to keep your poor self alive
It's a hard life when you can't pay your rent
None of your friends will borrow you a cent
Sometimes you get so tired that you can't go on
You know a starvin' man won't run and bark
Go on try try try again
Get yourself back in shape again
Go on try try try again
Get yourself out of that fix you're in
It's a hard hard life
Hang on for your life
Hang on baby, try try try
It's a hard life when you drive you're Cadillac
Finance man is threatening to take it back It's a hard life when the man say go to jail
None of your friends will throw you bail
It's a hard hard life
Hang on for your life
Hang on try try try try......
Hang on try try try try try.........

The Seeds -Mr Farmer



See the farmer on the other side of town
He's always working hard 'til the sun goes down
He's up every morning right on five, a wanting green seeds just to come alive,
But he don't wear a no farm clothes, he's always using a rake and hoe,
But his seeds are starting to grow, like a big stalk up through the sky .

He used to live in an apartment in a big old city
With thick and priestly windows built right in it
But he decided to move to a little tiny town
He wanted to be a farmer all year round
And on a country road where you can't see a thing
He's got five acres filled with little green things, he said
He's working so hard all night and day.

Mr. Farmer let me watch your crops
Mr. Farmer let me water your crops
Mr. Farmer let me harvest your crops
I want to have a dream come true
I said a farmer, farmer, farmer
I want to be just like you

See the farmer a walking down town, always draws a crowd when he's around
He's always wearing seedy clothes, he's shows them off where ever he goes
You can spot him anywhere, got a bright pink thumb but he don't care,
I said, he looks like something from a very bad dream.

Mr. Farmer let me watch your crops
Mr. Farmer let me water your crops
Mr. Farmer let me harvest your crops
Mr. Farmer let me save your crops


I said, a farmer, farmer, farmer…

The Seeds - The March of the Flower Children



Come on along and go with me
Back into your dreams
Come on along and go with me
Travel to your time
Take you anywhere at all
Said come on back and see the Nile
Said come on along and dream with me
Back in history
Back a century
Back to dreams with me
March, march, march with me
Past the crooked forest
Through the field of flowers
Away from all the dragons
Where the sky is painted golden yellow
Come on along and go with me through the fairy castle now
Come on along and go with me
Back when you were a child
Marching through the flowers
Playing all the while
Child of yesterday
The world began its dream for man
A circus filled with love and clowns and animals
Playing round and round
Out there

---O---O---O---

The Seeds - Nobody Spoil My Fun



You know there's always someone
Who wants to spoil your fun
When your fun has just begun

So I'm going to find some little girl
And we're going to go on the run
I'm going to take her down to broadway
Where the lights and the music are gay
Gonna teach her how to play
Every night and every day

'Cause I want
Yes, I want
Nobody spoil my fun

You know I'm gonna dress her up, real fine
So much, your going to blow your mind
And then she's gonna put her high-boots on
You know you want to go along
I'm going to show her how to lose
Her baby baby blues
And then I'm going to give her love
A love she really can use

'Cause I want
Yes, I want
Nobody spoil my fun

You know I'm going to find me a place
Where the band plays night and day

And where every policeman who's calling
They don't get in at all
And where if you, a pound on the wall
A no one cares at all
And the phone ringing out in the hall
Just tore it right off the wall

'Cause I want
Yes, I want
Nobody spoil my fun

You know we're going to dance all the night and day
No matter what the people say
And when the sun comes shining through
There'll just be me and you
And when I want to hold you tight
And a no one will say, it ain't right
And when I go and kiss your lips
Gonna send ya on your trip

'Cause I want
Yes, I want
Nobody spoil my fun

Yeah, I'm with you baby
I don't want nobody
To spoil our fun
Come on down
Down to Broadway
Where the lights
And the music
Are so gay
Gonna teach ya
How to play
Yeah, every night
And every day
It's alright
Yeah, come on
Come on

τρελή μπάντα, αληθινά επαναστατικός ήχος, ακουγονται ακόμα φρέσκοι- σουπερ αφιέρωμα! :))

Πολύ σημαντικό συγκρότημα.
Δυστυχώς είχε την ατυχία ο Sky Saxon να συμπέσει ο θάνατός του με αυτόν του Michael Jackson και να περάσει στα ψιλά :(

Να είσαι καλά. :)
