Song Lyrics #2 - Hungry Like The Wolf




I think that words combined with music can have a profound effect on us, and in this series I want to showcase some songs that I think really hit the mark. Taste in music is subjective, of course, but I'll be picking songs that I think have the magic combination of words and music. Songs that really stand apart. The music may be the hook but the right lyrics with the music can be an amazing experience.  


This time around I'm looking at Duran Duran- and about all I can say is- I'm not sure their lyrics mean anything? And I don't mean that in a bad way- I think they're a great example that lyrics don't have to tell a story in the conventional sense. Sometimes the combination of lyrics and music just workHungry Like The Wolf seems to fit that theme. I mean I'm assuming this is a song about attraction or lust, that seems kinda obvious, and yet some of the lyrics are a little... baffling? And I find this true of a lot of DD songs. Still... pretty killer music.

I especially like the beginning, with the woman's laughter seguing right into the song. 

Lyrics

Dark in the city night is a wire  
Steam in the subway earth is afire 

Woman you want me give me a sign 
And catch my breathing even closer behind  

In touch with the ground 
I'm on the hunt I'm after you 
Smell like I sound I'm lost in a crowd 
And I'm hungry like the wolf 
Straddle the line in discord and rhyme
I'm on the hunt I'm after you 
Mouth is alive with juices like wine 
And I'm hungry like the wolf 

Stalked in the forest too close to hide 


High blood drumming on your skin it's so tight 
You feel my heat I'm just a moment behind 

In touch with the ground 
I'm on the hunt I'm after you 
Scent and a sound 
I'm lost and I'm found 
And I'm hungry like the wolf
Strut on a line it's discord and rhyme
I howl and I whine I'm after you
Mouth is alive all running inside 
And I'm hungry like the wolf 

Hungry like the wolf

Burning the ground I break from the crowd
I'm on the hunt I'm after you
I smell like I sound 
I'm lost and I'm found 
And I'm hungry like the wolf 
Strut on a line it's discord and rhyme
I'm on the hunt I'm after you
Mouth is alive juices like wine
And I'm hungry like the wolf

Burning the ground I break from the crowd
I'm on the hunt I'm after you
Scent and a sound
I'm lost and I'm found 
And I'm hungry like the wolf 
Strut on a line it's discord and rhyme
I'm on the hunt I'm after you 
Mouth is alive

Sunday Post #298



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer

It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Book Date 
  
Hello friends and welcome to another weekend. Okay Game of Thrones is making me want the books so bad. I mean, the books are so behind where the show is, but I don't even care- I just want some sanity. It almost makes me want to go back and read all the sample chapters from The Winds of Winter that have been released so far. Speaking of- does anyone else read those?   

In other news- 007 resort wear? Bond casual? I saw this this week. :)   


My first song lyrics post went up and #2 will be this Monday. I'm having a lot of fun with these! I have four already written and picking songs is fun. Also, the Bookish Games Nevernight edition has started. We have the usual first day shenanigans going on, and I seem to be rather under suspicion due to my performance in the Vicious game. I can't believe anyone finds me suspicious! 

I reviewed One Word Kill and The Gondwana Shrine this past week, and also Scooby Apocalyose Vol. 3. Whew! This week will be Movies That Suck: One Million Years BC, and maybe a review for After The Lights Go Out or The Night Before. And of course Song Lyrics 2.

Okay more pirates. Seriously- these guys are killing me-I play this in the background and periodically burst out laughing at some of their nonsense.

Oh, and the running battle with undead skeletons starting around 15:40 is not to be missed! I mean, I need to play this game? I just need three or four people to buccaneer the high seas w/ me. Any takers?
