Teringherrie du jour: Oh Lord

Een moderne garagerockklassieker die zich kan meten met het beste wat er in de jaren ’60 geproduceerd is. Anton Newcombe en zijn makkers hebben zo’n beetje elk bestaand genre – van countryblues tot elektronica –  beoefend (met wisselend succes), maar voor mij zijn ze op hun best wanneer ze gewoon lekker herrie maken.

Oh lord you know it ain’t right
To live my life this way
I gotta stay up every night and feed this feeling
Till it goes away

Y’know I had my crime
And I paid my due
I’ve seen the best of times, I’ve had the best of friends
I bet it all to lose

And now I’ve seen the light
I’m gonna show it to you
You gotta lay right down, you gotta close your eyes
And let it flow right through you

‘Cause I
I believe it in my soul
And I always want feel this way
So honey let the good times roll

Party all night long
I’ve been sitting here drinking
How come it took so long for me to change my mind
Don’t know what I was thinking

 

But now I’ve seen the light
I want to give it to you
You gotta lay right down, you gotta close your eyes
You gotta let me in you

‘Cause I
I believe it’s in my soul
And I always want to feel this way
So honey let the good times roll

You gotta let me in you
