Quand les musiciens citent d'autres musiciens

Messagepar Witchy Cow » 30 Jan 2014, 16:20

Parfois, les musiciens en citent d'autres dans leurs chansons. Que ce soit pour en parler en bien ou en mal. Vous connaissez de ces chansons ?

Un exemple dans une chanson que j'adore : Monterey des Animals.

Les paroles :

The people came and listened
Some of them came and played
Others gave flowers away
Yes they did
Down in Monterey
Down in Monterey

Young gods smiled upon the crowd
Their music being born of love
Children danced night and day
Religion was being born
Down in Monterey

The Byrds and the Airplane
Did fly
Oh, Ravi Shankar's
Music made me cry

The Who exploded
Into violent light (yeah)
Hugh Masekelas music
Was black as night

The Grateful Dead
Blew everybody's mind
Jimi Hendrix, baby
Believe me
Set the world on fire, yeah!

His majesty
Prince Jones smiled as he
Moved among the crowd
Ten thousand electric guitars
Were groovin' real loud, yeah

If you wanna find the truth in life
Don't pass music by
And you know
I would not lie
No, I would not lie
No, I would not lie
Down in Monterey

Hu! huh-huh!

Alright!

Three days of understanding
Of moving with one another
Even the cops grooved with us
Do you believe me?
Yeah!

Down in Monterey
Down in Monterey, yeah
Down in Monterey
Down in Monterey, yeah

I think that maybe I'm dreamin'!

Monterey!

Monterey-yeah!

Down in Monterey

Did you hear what I said?

Down in Monterey

That some music

Reunion - "Life Is a Rock (But the Radio Rolled Me)" (1974)
(Norman Dolph)



Image

"Life Is a Rock (But the Radio Rolled Me)" is a 1974 song by an ad hoc group of studio musicians called Reunion, with Joey Levine (bubblegum music pioneer with "Chewy Chewy" and "Yummy Yummy Yummy" to his credit) as the lead singer. The song was written by Paul DiFranco (music) and Norman Dolph (lyrics). The lyrics are a fast patter of '50s, '60s, and '70s disc jockeys, musicians, songwriters, record labels, song titles and lyrics, and (incongruously) Jack the Ripper, broken only by the chorus.

Lyrics

B.B. Bumble and the Stingers, Mott the Hoople, Ray Charles Singers
Lonnie Mack and twangin' Eddy, here's my ring we're goin' steady
Take it easy, take me higher, liar liar, house on fire
Locomotion, Poco, Passion, Deeper Purple, Satisfaction
Baby baby gotta gotta gimme gimme gettin' hotter
Sammy's cookin', Lesley Gore and Ritchie Valens, end of story
Mahavishnu, fujiyama, kama-sutra, rama-lama
Richard Perry, Spector, Barry, Archies, Righteous, Nilsson, Harry
Shimmy shimmy ko-ko bop and Fats is back and Finger Poppin'

Life is a Rock,
But the radio rolled me.
Gotta turn it up louder,
So my DJ told me.

Life is a Rock,
But the radio rolled me.
At the end of my rainbow
Lies a Golden Oldie.

FM, AM, hits are clickin' while the clock is tock-a-tickin'
Friends and Romans, salutations, Brenda and the Tabulations
Carly Simon, I behold her, Rolling Stones and centerfoldin'
Johnny Cash and Johnny Rivers, can't stop now, I got the shivers
Mungo Jerry, Peter Peter Paul and Paul and Mary Mary
Dr. John the nightly tripper, Doris Day and Jack the Ripper
Gotta go Sir, gotta swelter, Leon Russell, Gimme Shelter
Miracles in smokey places, slide guitars and Fender basses
Mushroom omelet, Bonnie Bramlett, Wilson Pickett, stop and kick it

Life is a Rock,
But the radio...
Life is a Rock,
But the radio... Woo

Arthur Janov's primal screamin', Hawkins, Jay and
Dale and Ronnie, Kukla, Fran and Norma Okla
Denver, John and Osmond, Donny
JJ Cale and ZZ Top and LL Bean and De De Dinah
David Bowie, Steely Dan and sing me prouder, CC Rider
Edgar Winter, Joanie Sommers, Osmond Brothers, Johnny Thunders
Eric Clapton, pedal wah-wah, Stephen Foster, do-dah do-dah
Good Vibrations, Help Me Rhonda, Surfer Girl and Little Honda
Tighter, tighter, honey, honey, sugar, sugar, yummy, yummy
CBS and Warner Brothers, RCA and all the others

Life is a Rock,
But the radio rolled me.
Gotta turn it up louder,
So my DJ told me.

Life is a Rock,
But the radio rolled me.
At the end of my rainbow,
Lies a Golden Oldie.

Extended fade-out (with chorus singing in counterpoint):
(musical intro to "Baby I Need Your Loving")
(spoken: Listen--remember, they're playing our song!)


Rock it, sock it, Alan Freed me, Murray Kaufman, try to leave me
Fish, and Swim, and Boston Monkey,
Make it bad and play it funky.
(Wanna take you higher!)

The 45-rpm single version fades out here. The extended album version continues, with the following references:

Freddie King, Albert King, B. B. King
Felix Pappalardi, Laurel and Hardy, Randy Newman
Anni-Frid Lyngstad, Freda Payne, Aretha Franklin
Tito Puente, Boffalongo, Cuba, War, California
Beatlemania, New York City, Transylvania, S&G
Bobby Vee, SRO, Conway Twitty, "Do Wah Diddy Diddy"

Performed as medley or spoken over the fade-out:

"Baby I Need Your Loving" by The Four Tops
"Uptight (Everything's Alright)" by Stevie Wonder
"Celebrate" by Three Dog Night
"I Want to Take You Higher" by Sly & the Family Stone

We all came out to Montreux,
On the Lake Geneva shoreline.
To make records with a mobile,
We didn't have much time.
But Frank Zappa and the Mothers,
Were at the best place around,
But some stupid with a flare gun,
Burned the place to the ground.
Smoke on the water and fire in the sky.

"Neil Young" (Rusty Young-Mary Young) de Poco où Rusty Young met les choses au point sur son état de parenté avec Neil Young

Back in the sixties when we were all hippies
with patched up jeans and long long hair
somebody started a crazy rumor
they were pretty sure they read somewhere

Now I can see it comin’ when people start to say
I made a bet with my best friend
you can settle it just for the record
but they don’t believe me when I tell them

Neil Young is not my brother
we hardly know each other
the DNA is in and he’s not my kin
Neil Young is not my brother

He’s got a ranch in Northern California
where the deer and the buffalo roam
I’ve never been there i hear it’s real nice
I saw a picture in Rolling Stone

Neil Young is not my brother
bad news for my mother
she could use the bucks
he’s rich as Donald Trump
but Neil Young is not my brother

You won’t find me on his Facebook page
no blogs no twitter no passes backstage

If Neil Young was my brother
we’d hang out with one another
I’d drive his electric car and play his vintage guitars
if Neil Young was my brother
Neil Young is not my brother

Strawbs - Alexander The Great

They called him Alexander
With the best band in the land
He'd topped the bill in Paris
But in Venice it was banned
A pile of dusty gold discs
Were among his claims to fame
There was no-one over sixty
Who didn't know his name.

Alexander you were great
The man the critics loved to hate
You could have been as big as the Beatles or the Stones
Alexander you became
The lonely housewife's favourite name
You could have been the greatest of them all.

The gig was held in honour
Of his golden jubilee
He did not need the money
So he said he'd play for free
He got the band together
Who'd been with him through the years
They rehearsed the Alexander songs
And shed nostalgic tears.

The crowd rose to their feet
When Alexander hit the stage
His face had been rebuilt
So that you could not tell his age
He played all of the old songs
And the crowd sang every word
He danced like Margot Fonteyn
And whistled like a bird.

He came on for the encore
But collapsed against the stand
The crowd was hushed, the doctor came
There was panic in the band
He diagnosed a broken heart
The critics had been fed
Their reviews became
Obituary notices instead
Dans la vie, ce qui est grave, c'est pas tellement d'être con, c'est de le rester
