~Favorite "Rock" Songs~
In lyrics or title




*David Essex - Rock On*



Hey kid, rock and roll
Rock on, ooh, my soul
Hey kid, boogey too, did ya

Hey shout, summertime blues
Jump up and down in my blue suede shoes
Hey kid, rock and roll, rock on

And where do we go from here
Which is the way that's clear

Still looking for that blue jean, baby queen
Prettiest girl I ever seen
See her shake on the movie screen, Jimmy Dean (James Dean)

And where do we go from here
Which is the way that's clear

Still looking for that blue jean, baby queen
Prettiest girl I ever seen
See her shake on the movie screen, Jimmy Dean
Jimmy Dean
Rock on
Rock on
Rock on

Hey, hey
Rock and roll
Rock on

Rock on
Hey, hey
Rock and roll
Rock on

Rock on
Hey, hey
Rock and roll
Rock on

Rock on
Hey, hey
Rock and roll
Rock on........



*BAD COMPANY--Rock and Roll Fantasy*



Hey, yeah.
Here come the jesters, one, two, three.
It's all part of my fantasy,
I love the music and I love to see
the crowd,
Dancing in the aisles and singing out loud, yeah.

Here come the dancers one by one,
Your mamas calling but you're having fun
You'll find you're dancing on a number nine cloud
Put your hands together and sing
it out loud

Its all part of my rock 'n' roll
fantasy, yeah.
Its all part of my rock 'n' roll
dream, yeah.

It's all part of my rock 'n' roll fantasy.
It's all part of my rock 'n' roll
dream.

Put out the spot lights one and all
And let the feeling get down to
your soul
The music's so loud you can here the sound
Reaching for the sky churning up the ground

It's all part of my rock 'n' roll fantasy.
Its all part of my rock 'n' roll dream, oh, yeah.
It's all part of my rock 'n' roll fantasy.
Its all part of my rock 'n' roll dream, yeah, yeah.
Fantasy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Fantasy, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.



*Electric Light Orchestra - Rock 'N' Roll Is King*

Listen everybody let me tell you 'bout the rock 'n' roll
Feel that rhythm and it's really gonna thrill your soul
She said come along with me, to a land of make believe
She said rock 'n' roll is king

She loves that rock 'n' roll and she plays it all night long
That's all she ever tells me when I call her on the telephone
She says feel that jumpin' beat, and git up on your feet
She says rock 'n' roll is king

Chorus: Oh let those guitars play
Play for me play for me
Oh let that song ring out
That's how it's meant to be

It rolls like a train that's comin' on down the track
She rolled over Beethoven and she gave Tchaikovsky back
She loves that drivin' beat, she goes dancin' on down the street
She said rock 'n' roll is king

Repeat Chorus:

When she comes around and I'm listenin' to the radio
She says you can't do that 'cause all I wanna do is rock 'n' roll
Now here I'm gonna stay where that music starts to play
She says rock 'n' roll is king

My fave rock song, wait...there are so many....

Well, my fave Rolling Stones song is “you can’t always get what you want” since I think it rolls all the stones stuff into one really great song.

But I would think my fave rock song would have to be a Led Zepplin song and I guess, that would have to be (no not THAT one!) “Whole Lotta Love”.

Yeah, that’s a pretty rocking tune.

And you know Jefferson Airplane’s “Somebody to Love” is also right up there!

Here are some songs from 1958, when rock music was coming under attack by the "square" community. In many of these songs, the rockers rise in defense of their genre.

Good evening, Kathy!

*HUGS*

Legs are pretty sketchy tonight - the Keystone Kops are a pretty sketchy, too. I QC'ed some work this afternoon - interesting, but I guess you have to make some allowances for the first day.

Seriously, I was really feeling the effects of last night's PT today. I couldn't have made it through the day without the walker. The lower back has been a problem all day, too. Don't mean to complain - it just seems that physically, everything is going to Hell at once.

Getting ready to hit the hay - will chat with you tomorrow. Hope you have a restful night!
