But I repeat myselfNovember 20, 2017 Tim WorstallMusic5 CommentsThose lyrics were primarily concerned with sex, drugs, drink and rock’n’roll. previousWho knew that we had such a thing?nextSo now we’ve a good measure of my market value 5 thoughts on “But I repeat myself” Hallowed Be November 20, 2017 at 10:24 am IMO the greatest R&R line (not ac/dc though)- “she’s got legs……..she knows how to use them”. So Much For Subtlety November 20, 2017 at 10:58 am I don’t know. I think AC DC’s Long Way To The Top has about the best rock and roll line ever. Several of them. In a row. Ridin’ down the highway Goin’ to a show Stop in all the byways Playin’ rock ‘n’ roll Gettin’ robbed Gettin’ stoned Gettin’ beat up Broken-boned Gettin’ had Gettin’ took I tell you, folks It’s harder than it looks As the pretentious [email protected] at the Guardian wouldn’t say, it is like a haiku It is impressive to think that their older brother was in, and wrote many of the hits for, the Easybeats. Whose lyrics in Friday on my Mind are similar to that really. So Much For Subtlety November 20, 2017 at 11:08 am Incidentally the Guardian suggests another article about Chuck D. Who, as I am sure everyone here knows, is the former lead rapper of the hugely influential Public Enemy. He is clearly mellowing in his old age because he says two things that must be the least rock and roll ever: My father passed in February 2016 …. I miss my dad. I miss the conversation, he kept me grounded when I was loose. I talked to him for 55 years. The silence is unbelievably powerful and the only way I can deal with it is by filling it by speaking powerfully. …. My oldest daughter is 29. She is clear about telling her father what to do. She is totally in charge, she challenges me on everything I’ve taught her, she is always saying: “Well, Dad, if the shoe was on the other foot…” Children are a good thing. Being a parent stretches your life into something you could never conceive it to be. What a shame he never rapped about either of those. He will always be remembered for defending Farrakhan and telling the long-dead John Wayne something rather crude involving his mother.

I like ZZ Top [Zee Zee Top], their videos were superb compared to most other 80’s groups. Hilarious that the one with no beard was Mr Beard.
