Friday Song Of The Day – You Be Illin’

Last week I posted on a comical song in the country song. This week is another funny song, from da old school! This is You Be Illin’ by Run D.M.C. from their album, Raising Hell.

Verse 1

(One) day when I was chillin’ in Kentucky Fried Chicken
Just mindin’ my business, eatin’ food and finger lickin’
This dude walked in lookin’ strange and kind of funny
Went up to the front with a menu and his money
He didn’t walk straight, kind of side to side
He asked this old lady, “Yo, yo, um…is this Kentucky Fried?”
The lady said “Yeah”, smiled and he smiled back
He gave a quarter and his order, small fries, Big Mac!
You be illin’

Verse 2

(To)day you won a ticket to see Doctor J
Front row seat (in free!) no pay
Radio in hand, snacks by feet
Game’s about to start, you kickin’ popcorn to the beat
You finally wake up, Doc’s gone to town
Round his back, through the hoop, then you scream “Touchdown!”
You be illin’

Verse 3

The other day around the way I seen you illin’ at a party
Drunk as skunk you illin’ punk and in your left hand was Bacardi
You went up to this fly girl and said “Yo, yo, can I get this dance?”
She smelt your breath and then she left you standin’ in your illin’
stance
You be illin’

Verse 4

(For) dinner, you ate it, there is none left
It was salty, with butter and it was def
You proceeded to eat it cos you was in the mood
But holmes you did not read it was a can of dog food!
You be illin’

I couldn’t find a music video for it, but this just has the album cover with the song playing in the background. At least you can listen along!

Friday Song Of The Day – Ticks

Brad Paisley has been a hot commodity in the country music scene for a number of years. I listen to him on occassion, but I hadn’t heard this song until my brother in law introduced me to it this week. Very funny. This is Ticks from his 5th Gear album.

Every time you take a sip
In this smoky atmosphere
You press that bottle to your lips
And I wish I was your beer
In the small there of your back
Your jeans are playing peekaboo
I’d like to see the other half of your butterfly tattoo.

Hey that gives me an idea
Let’s get out of this bar
Drive out into the country
And find a place to park.

‘Cause I’d like to see you out in the moonlight
I’d like to kiss you way back in the sticks
I’d like to walk you through a field of wildflowers
And I’d like to check you for ticks.

I know the perfect little path
Out in these woods I used to hunt
Don’t worry babe I’ve got your back
And I’ve also got your front
Now, I’d hate to waste a night like this
I’ll keep you safe you wait and see
The only thing allowed to crawl all over you when we get there is me.

You know every guy in here tonight
Would like to take you home
But I’ve got way more class than them
Babe that ain’t what I want.

‘Cause I’d like to see you out in the moonlight
I’d like to kiss you way back in the sticks
I’d like to walk you through a field of wildflowers
And I’d like to check you for ticks.

You never know where one might be
There’s lots of places that are hard to reach
I gotcha.

I’d like to see you out in the moonlight
I’d like to kiss you baby way back in the sticks
I’d like to walk you through a field of wildflowers
And I’d like to check you for ticks.

I’d sure like to check you for ticks…

Friday Song Of The Day – I’m Yours

It’s been a while (last year) since I’ve posted a Friday Song of the Day. This song seems to get stuck in my head; which isn’t entirely bad. It’s got a nice island feel and it’s just down-right perky. I like it, so here is I’m Yours by Jason Mraz from his album We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things.

Well you dawned on me and you bet I felt it
I tried to be chill but you’re so hot that I melted
I fell right through the cracks and now I’m tryin’ to get back
Before the cool done run out I’ll be givin’ it my bestest
and nothin’s gonna stop me but divine intervention
I reckon it’s again my turn to win some or learn some

But I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I’m yours

Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find love love love love
Listen to the music of the moment people dance and sing
We’re just one big family
And it’s our godforsaken right to be loved loved loved loved loved

So I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait I’m sure
There’s no need to complicate
Our time is short
This is our fate, I’m yours

Do you want to come’a,
Scooch on over closer dear
And I will nibble your ear

I’ve been spendin’ way too long checkin’ my tongue in the mirror
And bendin’ over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and I laughed
I guess what I be sayin’ is there ain’t no better reason
To rid yourself of vanities and just go with the seasons
It’s what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue

But I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I’m yours
Well open up your mind and see like me
Open up your plans and damn you’re free
Look into your heart and you’ll find that… the sky is yours
Please don’t please don’t please don’t
There’s no need to complicate
‘Cause our time is short
This is, this is, this is our fate
I’m yours…

Friday Song Of The Day – Jesus Is A Friend Of Mine

For this Friday Song of the Day I am going to get a little religious… and somewhat comical. This is Jesus Is My Friend by the band, Sonseed. The band was formed in the late 1970’s at the Church of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Brooklyn, NY. The band was (for obvious reasons) fairly obscure until a recent post on the Dougsploitation blog and corresponding YouTube post made this song an instant viral hit. A site called Vinyl Rehab apparently has the album for sale for $5.00. There isn’t any online ordering so you’ll have to call them or email them to see if they have it in stock (good luck). Or you can download the full album in MP3 from Cabel’s Blog LOL, though I’m not sure how legal that is. Here are the lyrics so you can sing along as you watch the video (below).

CHORUS:
Jesus is a friend of mine,
(echo) Jesus is my friend,
Jesus is a friend of mine,
(echo) I have a friend in Jesus,
Jesus is a friend of mine
(echo) Jesus is my friend,
Jesus is a friend of mine

VERSE 1:
He taught me how to live my life as it should be
He taught me how to turn my cheek when people laugh at me
I’ve had friends before and I can tell you that
He’s one who will never leave you flat

(REPEAT CHORUS)

VERSE 2:
He taught me how to pray and how to save my soul
He taught me how to praise my God and still play rock and roll
The music may sound different but the message is the same
It’s just an instrument to praise His name

(REPEAT CHORUS)

(INSTRUMENTAL BREAK)

Jesus is a friend of mine,
Jesus is a friend of mine

VERSE 3:
Once I tried to run; I tried to run and hide
But Jesus came and found me and He touched me down inside
He is like a mounty; He always gets His man
And He’ll zap you any way He can … ZAP!

(REPEAT CHORUS)

VERSE 4:
He loves me when I’m right; He loves me when I’m wrong
He loves me when I waste my time by writing silly songs
He loves me when I’m quiet and I have nothing to say
He’ll love me when I’m perfect if I ever get that way

(REPEAT CHORUS)

Friday Song Of The Day – Go Your Own Way

Today is my official last day at a job, so I thought I’d post a song about moving on. This song is about couples breaking up, and more specifically about the split-up of Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks, so it doesn’t really apply. But I like the song so here it is. Go Your Own Way by Fleetwood Mac from their Rumours (1977) album.

Loving you
Isn’t the right thing to do
How can I
Ever change things that I feel
If I could
Baby, I’d give you my world
How can I
When you won’t take it from me

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way

Tell me why
Everything turned around
Packing up
Shacking up’s all you wanna do
If I could
Baby, I’d give you my world
Open up
Everything’s waiting for you

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it another lonely day (another lonely day)
You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it another lonely day

You can go your own way
You can call it another lonely day
You can go your own way

Daft Punk – Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

I love the song Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger by Daft Punk. In fact I’ve been listening to the thing off and on all day. I just ran across this video featuring the song that I thought was really cool. It starts off a bit cheesy, but hang in there… it’s well worth it.

EDIT:Ok, then I saw this one which is probably even better.
