The Devil Went Down to Georgia

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

The Charlie Daniels Band wrote and recorded this in 1979.


The devil went down to Georgia
He was lookin' for a soul to steal
He was in a bind 'cause he was way behind
And he was willin' to make a deal


When he came across this young man
Sawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hot
And the devil jumped up on a hickory stump
And said, "Boy, let me tell you what"


"I guess you didn't know it but I'm a fiddle player, too
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you
Now, you play pretty good fiddle, boy, but give the devil his due
I'll bet a fiddle of gold against your soul
'Cause I think I'm better than you"


The boy said, "My name's Johnny, and it might be a sin
But I'll take your bet, you're gonna regret
'Cause I'm the best that's ever been"


Johnny, rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard
'Cause hell's broke loose in Georgia and the devil deals the cards
And if you win you get this shiny fiddle made of gold
But if you lose, the devil gets your soul


The devil opened up his case and he said, "I'll start this show"
And fire flew from his fingertips as he rosined up his bow
And he pulled the bow across the strings and it made an evil hiss
Then a band of demons joined in and it sounded somethin' like this

(Apparently, Basement Cat thought 4 horsemen weren't quite enough for his purposes)

When the devil finished, Johnny said
"Well, you're pretty good, old son
But sit down in that chair right there
And let me show you how it's done"


Fire on the mountain, run, boys, run
The devil's in the house of the rising sun
Chicken in the bread pan pickin' out dough
Granny, does your dog bite? No, child, no


The devil bowed his head because he knew that he'd been beat
And he laid that golden fiddle on the ground at Johnny's feet
Johnny said, "Devil, just come on back if you ever want to try again
'Cause I told you once, you son of a bitch, I'm the best that's ever been"

Season of the Witch

Tuesday, October 21, 2014

From 1966, written by Donovan.



When I look out my window
Many sights to see
And when I look in my window
So many different people to be


That it's strange, so strange
You've got to pick up every stitch
You've got to pick up every stitch
You've got to pick up every stitch
Must be the season of the witch
Must be the season of the witch, yeah
Must be the season of the witch



Oh, when I look over my shoulder
What do you think I see?
Some other cat looking over
His shoulder at me



And he's strange, sure he's strange
You've got to pick up every stitch
You've got to pick up every stitch, yeah
Beatniks are out to make it rich
Oh no, must be the season of the witch
Must be the season of the witch, yeah
Must be the season of the witch

(Coming the a theatre near you this summer)

You've got to pick up every stitch
The rabbits running in the ditch
Beatniks are out to make it rich
Oh no, must be the season of the witch
Must be the season of the witch
Must be the season of the witch


When I look

Oh, when I look out my window
What do you think I see?
And when I look in my window
So many different people to be


It's strange, sure it's strange
You've got to pick up every stitch
You've got to pick up every stitch
The rabbits running in the ditch
Oh no, must be the season of the witch
Must be the season of the witch, yeah
Must be the season of the witch


When I look
When I look

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Monday, October 20, 2014

The Nightmare Before Christmas is a 1993 stop action film produced by Tim Burton. Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King, rules in Halloween Town. Tired of organizing the yearly Halloween holiday, he stumbles over a door into Christmas Town. Jack convinces the citizens of Halloween Town to kidnap Santa Claus, while Jack hijacks the Christmas holiday. He doesn't quite understand the whole idea, though, and delivers vampire dolls, snapping teeth ducks, shrunken heads and similar items. The horrified townsfolk alert the military, and Jack is shot down. He survives, manages to free Santa, and makes amends.


"This is Halloween" is sung by the citizens of Halloween Town.

Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red

Red 'n' black, slimy green


[WEREWOLF]

Take a chance and roll the dice
Ride with the moon in the dead of night

Pirates of the Caribbean

Sunday, October 19, 2014

Who doesn't like pirates at Halloween? (The real ones were pretty scary, but fantasy is fun). This began as a popular Disney ride, then beame the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise (POTC: The Curse of the Black Pearl; Dead Man's Chest; At World's End; On Stranger Tides; and a projected 2017 Dead Men Tell No Tales).




Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me

We pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot
Drink up me hearties, yo ho
We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot
Drink up me hearties, yo ho



Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me

We extort, we pilfer, we filch and sack
Drink up me hearties, yo ho
Maraud and embezzle and even high-jack
Drink up me hearties yo ho


Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me

We kindle and char, inflame and ignite
Drink up me hearties, yo ho
We burn up the city, we're really a fright
Drink up me hearties, yo ho



We're rascals, scoundrels, villains, and knaves
Drink up me hearties, yo ho
We're devils and black sheep, really bad eggs
Drink up me hearties, yo ho


Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me

We're beggars and blighters and ne'er do-well cads
Drink up me hearties, yo ho
Aye, but we're loved by our mommies and dads
Drink up me hearties, yo ho

Moon Dance

Saturday, October 18, 2014

I heard this while driving in to work - had to sit in the car until the song ended after I parked. Been going thru my head all night.

Van Morrison wrote and recorded "Moondance" in 1970. It's his most frequently played song in his concerts, and has been covered by many other artists. In "An American Werewolf in London", this song played during the romantic scene between David (the man who would turn into the werewolf) and his nurse/girl friend, Alex.


Well, it's a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush


Can I just have one a' more Moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love


Well, I wanna make love to you tonight
I can't wait 'til the morning has come
And I know that the time is just right
And straight into my arms you will run
And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure that you're never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true, dear
There and then I will make you my own
And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside
And I know how much you want me that you can't hide


Can I just have one a' more Moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love


Well, it's a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush


One more Moondance with you in the moonlight
On a magic night
La, la, la, la in the moonlight
On a magic night
Can't I just have one more dance with you my love
