He’s Still Got It

I know this has been out for a while - but - well it is a long story. Suffice to say, been spinning it for a couple of days now. Awesome. No review here - there’s plenty around. But I do have an observation. Roger’s lyrics - and specifically his ‘lyrical lists’.

Think about

Radio waves, radio waves He hears radio waves Radio waves, radio waves Hopeful radio waves Dopeful radio waves Radio waves Russian radio waves Prussian radio waves Eastern radio waves Western radio waves Testing radio waves, one, two, one, two Radio waves Getting through to you More code, radio waves Tobacco road radio waves South to Paloma radio waves Oklahoma City radio waves Sitting pretty radio waves Nitty-gritty radio waves Radio waves

And

All that you touch All that you see All that you taste All you feel. All that you love All that you hate All you distrust All you save. All that you give All that you deal All that you buy, beg, borrow or steal. All you create All you destroy All that you do All that you say. All that you eat And everyone you meet All that you slight And everyone you fight. All that is now All that is gone All that’s to come and everything under the sun is in tune but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

You get my point. So delighted to see that he hasn’t lost his touch …. and the subject matter is ‘right on’.

Picture yourself as you lean on the port rail Tossing away your last cigarette Picture your finger pushing the doorbell Picture the skull and crossbones on the doormat Picture yourself on the streets of Laredo Picture the casbah, picture Japan Picture your kid with his hand on the trigger Picture prosthetics in Afghanistan Picture a courthouse with no fucking laws Picture a cathouse with no fucking whores Picture a shithouse with no fucking drains Picture a leader with no fucking brains No fucking brains, no fucking brains No fucking brains, no fucking brains No fucking brains, no fucking brains No fucking brains, no fucking brains

Listen to one of them …..

But Something About The Dress Rehearsal Makes It Really Work.
