    Oh yeah!

    I hear you talking when I’m on the street,
    Your mouth don’t move but I can hear you speak.
    What’s the matter with the boy?
    He don’t come around no more,
    Is he checking out for sure?
    Is he gonna close the door on me?
    I’m always hearing voices on the street,
    I want to shout, but I can’t hardly speak.
    I was making love last night
    To a dancer friend of mine.
    I can’t seem to stay in step,
    ‘Cause she come ev’ry time that she pirouettes over me.
    And I only get my rocks off while I’m dreaming,
    I only get my rocks off while I’m sleeping.
    I’m zipping through the days at lightning speed.
    Plug in, flush out and fire the fuckin’ feed.
    Heading for the overload,
    Splattered on the dirty road,
    Kick me like you’ve kicked before,
    I can’t even feel the pain no more.
    And I only get my rocks off while I’m dreaming, (only get them off)
    I only get my rocks off while I’m sleeping.
    Feel so hypnotized, can’t describe the scene.
    Its all mesmerized, all that inside me.
    The sunshine bores the daylights out of me.
    Chasing shadows moonlight mystery.
    Headed for the overload,
    Splattered on the dirty road,
    Kick me like you’ve kicked before,
    I can’t even feel the pain no more.
    And I only get my rocks off while I’m dreaming (only get them off, get them off),
    I only get my rocks off while I’m sleeping (only get them off, get them off).

    When I say I’m in love you best believe I’m in L-U-V (first line, spoken)

    That first line spoken by David Jo is an ode to the girl group the Shangri-Las, also from New York.

    stonehearted-yes, david johansen always cites the shangri-las as being very influential to his own musical sound. i luv this video, shows how they were different than what i usually picture when thinking of girl groups from the early 60’s.

    i miss your ancient history music thread stonehearted. we really got going on that thread-good info & listening.

    Yes, that was a fun thread. I’ve added to my music collection the last few months, so I may dig up that thread and add to it — but you never know if there’ll be time left to post here. Like Jim Morrison sang: “The future’s uncertain and the end is always near…”

     

    Speaking of the Shangri-Las, didn’t either the Ramones or Dolls do a cover of this?

    nice to see you again stonehearted–(I just now noticed the connection I think my mind made here between your pic of your wonderful old school hippie like long rock & roll hair and me remembering this particular song. You could’ve been the poster boy for this song so to speak but you weren’t old enough in 1971). And the sign said Long-haired freaky people need not apply-Five Man Electrical Band “Signs”

    Hi Tauk, thanks! Yeah, I was only 5 in 1971. But, you know, at the end of that decade I was always letting my hair grow longer. Just a natural tendency, I guess. I mean, who needed that Vitalis hair oil or the hair sprays that would keep one’s parted hair in place? That stuff just gave me dandruff.

     

    That pic in my avatar — it’s from last year, November. I’m 50 in that pic. I suppose I’ll update it eventually. Would you believe, that’s from among my very first set of selfies? I just bought my first iPhone that month! I took one with an iPod touch in 2015 for my avatar here — it had the camera in the front but I couldn’t see it so I was taking it backwards, I got lucky with one presentable pic out of ten I tried.

     

    But I agree, the sexiest look was from the seventies — well, maybe because it was in that decade that I became sexually aware, so why not?

     

    I seem to remember from the “You show me yours, I’ll show you mine” thread here that you have a nice, luxurious head of longish dark hair.

     

    But I also like that “pixie” look from back then, too. I mean, howsabout Marlyn Mason? As Nikki Bell in Longstreet, they don’t get any cuter than that!

    hey stonehearted-the New York Dolls performed “Out in the Street” during what was suppose to be a one-time reunion night in 2004 in the UK. Here’s a video of this song from that venue.  There’s a DVD plus Youtube of the event.

    Funny how when the term “gang” is used in this song, both by the Shangri-Las and The Dolls, that it is not referring to today’s use of the word “gang” as in criminal street toughs but rather, it’s used as we might currently say referring to just a group of friends, in a positive context.. David changed some of the words of the lyrics like “you don’t hang around the band (or gang) no more and a reference to her (the topic of the song) not wearing high heeled shoes no more” which is kinda funny since David always wore 3-4″ heeled women’s pumps back at the apex of their heydeys in the early 70’s. The camera lighting wasn’t so good for this video, I mean it’s ok but it looks like cheap digital or something. I’d go on but it would fit the thread topic better in the ancient Music thread.

    hey stonehearted- i can relate to being a late-bloomer when it comes to cell phone ‘selfies”. As a matter of fact, most pics of myself I’ve taken directly using my laptop’s camera. I just wasn’t in the mood to learn about cell phone pics so I use to just hold up my laptop and try to get the miniature little camera to land in the right spot to take my own pic.

    You say you have to take about 10 selfies to get one you like-ya, well my ratio is about 30 takes per 1 half-way decent pic.

    Despite the super short pixie cut on that wig mannequin which is my current avatar, I just believe that humans were meant to have long hair. I often wonder how cave people managed to comb their hair or wash it, etc.

    I was a little too young for the Broadway iconic show “Hair” but I know it was a major big deal back then for Broadway to embrace this cultural shift. Noone talks about this show, song, or soundtrack anymore. I think it was from 1968, so you would’ve been about 3 years old.  But it was a fun song on the radio–classic old rock stations still played it during the 70’s Humorous lyrics, for sure. I’ll elaborate more on the Dolls and “Hair” soundtrack over on the ancient music thread in the next few days.

    Here’s the opening lines to “Hair” song:

    “She asks me why I’m just a hairy guy…I’m hairy noon and night, hair that’s a fright…” it gets better and better as it really gets going…Ha! Hilarious if I do say so myself. 🙂

    Didn’t I see you down in San Antoine on a hot and dusty night? If I could stick my hand in my heart spill it all over the stage …. What a drag it is getting old

    Nice ones Tauk, and this, didnt i see you down in San………………..Awesome 🙂

    marianita-perhaps you’re referring to my enchanted evening May 31 with David Jo (and his beautiful, talented wife) in San Francisco.

    WHICH BRINGS to my mind the opening line from a song outside of the rock genre but nevertheless a good one, associated for many years now with the vocalist, Tony Bennett

    Opening lines “I left my heart in San Francisco”

    Another SF wonderful opening line song:”If you’re going to San Franciso, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair”

    From 1967 Monterey Pop festival – you can’t get more hippy than that! Beautiful song..I think that opening line and the other descriptions in this song of SF  played a major role in the formation of the idealistic, golden hippie-land-image in the mindset of many people who lived far from CA…I once mentioned this image of flower wearing Californians to a gal who was born & raised & lived in CA…she said the only people who dress like that (flowers in their hair) are the tourists who go to CA.

     

    EDIT/P.S. I just now noticed at 1.21 they show a brief picture of Brian Jones (not performing, just being in the audience/crowd with a fan or some guy taking his picture) ..I didn’t know he was there at all= I had the old VHS tape for this Monterey Pop Festival- of course, Janis J & Jim Hendrix & many others are shown performing in that tape but no Stones played.
