Dagens sang: Who do you love

9. december 2007

Dagens sang er en af dem, man gladeligt fÃ¥r pÃ¥ hjernen: Bo Diddleys “Who do you love”, som er inspillet af et hav af kunstnere, som fx Juicy Lucy, George Thorogood, The Doors, The Band, Townes Van Zandt og Quicksilver Messenger Service.
I øvrigt sÃ¥ lod Buddy Holly sig mere end inspirere af Bo Diddleys rytme, da han skrev sin klassiker “Not Fade Away”. I dag ville han nok have fÃ¥et en kopi-sag pÃ¥ halsen… Rolling Stones fik en tidligt fortjent hit med “Not Fade Away”.

I walked 47 miles of barbed wire,
Used a cobra snake for a neck tie.
Got a brand new house on the roadside,
Made out of rattlesnake hide.
I got a brand new chimney made on top,
Made out of human skulls.
Now come on darling let’s take a little walk, tell me,
Who do you love,
Who do you love, Who do you love, Who do you love.

Arlene took me by the hand,
And said oooh eeeh daddy I understand.
Who do you love,
Who do you love, Who do you love, Who do you love.
The night was black and the night was blue,
And around the corner an ice wagon flew.
A bump was a hittin’ lord and somebody screemed,
You should have heard just what I seen.
Who do you love, Who do you love, Who do you love, Who do you love.

Arleen took me by my hand, she said Ooo-ee Bo you know I understand
I got a tombstone hand and a graveyard mind,
I lived long enough and I ain’t scared of dying.

Who do you love
