Still in Hollywood! Oh WOW! Thought I'd be out of here by now. My, my I'm running on a wheel and I don't know why I don't know why. And so it's three A. I'm just a spot on the sidewalk in the city of sin. You know it coulda been me, guess it's just my luck.
But I swear I hear the voices singing to me - Keep on, keep on, keep on. Still in Hollywood Down in Hollywood. He has an amazing list of achievements that includes producing the great Cuban music album "Buena Vista Social Club," making the soundtrack for Wim Wenders' great film "Paris Texas," and collaborating with Ali Farka Toure and other musicians from around the world. There's gonna be some bad blues Somebody said they're playing all night long So go and fill your brown bag and put on all your clean rags Let's go downtown and see what's going on You take me down the Vine Street Stop when you hear the back beat And I'll sneak past the bouncer at the door Now I know that he ain't looking Not when the band is cooking Because he's watching the ladies dancing on the floor Going down in Hollywood You better hope that you don't run out of gas Down in Hollywood He'll drag you right out of your car and kick your ass Down in Hollywood They're standing on a corner waiting for a sucker like you Down in Hollywood Now, if you want to stay healthy just keep a-moving right on through Be careful, don't look back, keep moving, keep moving Well, the scotch has started flowing And some girls she is showing everything she's got Folks, it's a sight!
Some men will give a week's pay if she would just dance down their way and say "Baby, I'm gonna take you home with me tonight" Outside the streets is shaking and I hear the windows breaking Some poor fool's gonna land in jail tonight Well, all those hookers trying to pull your coat and the pimps reach out to cut your throat Ain't no way out of here without a fight What's that fool saying? Going down in Hollywood From his album "Chavez Ravine" released in This song, like many of them on this album deal with Chavez Ravine which was a Mexican-American neighborhood that was torn down to build public housing in the 's.
Before the housing was built, Dodger Stadium was built on the site. Like most cities, much of modern day L. Then a trolley goes by with its clattering sound, Like a clock on the wall and the rain coming down, And somebody's chattering way down the hall from my room. From my room, I see old town. Crook town, wop town, and spic town.
Black town, shack town, and hick town, from my room. Looking down through the rain, I think the future's going my way. And there's a freeway coming soon Right through this dirty old room. Can't you see a story building Where a palm tree used to be? Well, I like a town that's flat, I like a street that's tame. You take out the trash; they all do the same.
But get back inside and remain, until notified. I want a town that's clean and I want a rule that's maintained. If you're brown, back down. If you're black, get back. Better white than right. Better dead than red. Better keep it contained in my town. Now, in my town, I'm the big cheese. Don't like all those commie rats in the palm trees Up there in Chavez Ravine.
They come down here to City Hall, Creating a big scene, crying "foul ball. I write the rules; I call the game. There's the pitch, it's good; there goes your old neighborhood. Tell the mayor duck out the back, Tell the monsignor keep the deal under his hat. Chavez Ravine plugged up, Bunker Hill ripped down.
Cement mixers spreading the word around. This here is my town. Then the trolley stops by on its way down the hill, And somebody's passing by my window sill. No shoes on the stairs, no knock at the door Of my room, of my room. Why should I go down? Not California. A tune from the smart and quicky country roots rocker.
She didn't write it, but she sings it. It seems to be about someone who moved away from California and misses it. I've put a song of hers about a snake in the bed on the herp song list, too. Fantastic Voyage. Coolio is a rapper and producer from Compton, CA. He's also a chef with a cooking show and a "Ghetto Gourmet" cookbook. From his album "It Takes a Thief" released in this song was a huge hit on the pop charts. In he had an even bigger worldwide hit with "Gangsta's Paradise.
I Hate California. An upbeat acoustic guitar tune from the first album of the singer-songwriter from Brooklyn known for writing quircky songs about science fiction and technology and geek culture and became popular using the internet. He doesn't hate the state, it's all about a girl.
Although I probably should I don't blame the sky for its careless shade of blue Lord knows I don't blame you Lord knows I don't blame you I hate California One more beach day come and gone And by the time you've finished gazing at the sea 3, miles away there's nothing left for me If there ever was I hate California Holiday in Spain.
Counting Crows is a rock band from Berkeley, formed in This is from the band's album "Hard Candy" released in A Long December. This is from the band's album "Recovering the Satellites" released in M And talked a little while about the year I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower Makes you talk a little lower About the things you could not show her And it's been a long December and there's reason to believe Maybe this year will be better than the last I can't remember all the times I tried to tell my myself To hold on to these moments as they pass And it's one more day up in the canyon And it's one more night in Hollywood It's been so long since I've seen the ocean I guess I should".
Perfect Blue Buildings. This song is from the band's debut album "August and Everything After. Berkeley campus. Asleep in perfect blue buildings Beside the green apple sea Gonna get me a little oblivion, baby Try to keep myself away from me myself and me It's A. I got bones beneath my skin, and mister There's a skeleton in every man's house Beneath the dust and love and sweat that hangs on everybody There's a dead man trying to get out Please help me stay awake, I'm falling Jones won't lend me a hand Up come two cats in a Cadillac And they say: 'Won't you hop in, man?
The one that's driving's got a bowler hat The other's got a fez on his head They turn around and grin and I grin back But not a word was said So I took out my harp and I played 'em a tune I could see they were diggin' it Then the one with the fez, well he turns and he says 'We'd like to help you make your trip. He said: 'We can't leave him out in the rain' 'He just might freeze and die' 'So why not put him on a plane' 'And send him home in the sky?
El Cerrito. Biologist Jeff Ahrens recommended that I add some songs from the new Cracker album, Berkeley to Bakersfield, released in December , and I'm glad he did. Thanks to Cracker for producing a great fun political album about the state, dealing with topics others won't dare to touch like the totalitarian tech industry that has overtaken our lives leading off with "Torches and Pitchforks" not on this list because it doesn't specifically mention the state and it's revolutionary lyrics: "We will fight you from the mountains And we will fight you in the streets And we will fight you in the valleys You cannot take what isn't yours.
The first one could be titled "Berkeley" a liberal city with roots in social protest with punk-based songs protesting economic inequality, much of it created by the Silicon Valley tech industry and its gentrification of the Bay Area. The second one could be titled "Bakersfield" a conservative city with roots in the oil industry and country music with country songs about the red state half of the golden state that most of the rest of the country is not aware of.
I could list all of the songs on the album, but I'll just list a few of them below. The song "El Cerrito" complains about the gentrification of the SF Bay Area fueled by the mostly south-bay tech companies and their conformist wealth-obsessed employees whose affluent lifestyles have driven up prices especially housing prices forcing many people to live elsewhere.
There's a good article about the song in the San Jose Mercury News. Everybody's squeaky clean. They look and dress and act the same. Mama took the Alameda transit bus to work each day. All the way down San Pablo.
Never heard her once complain about taking public transportation. You should ride the city bus just like the rest of us in El Cerrito. Big moustache in taxi cabs. Don't you know that???? Union busting techy uber alles. I said it. Making Wall Street bankers even richer. El Cerrito 's got it's problems but we don't pick pockets of the workin' man. Papa was an engineer. Worked at Hewlett-Packard. Dumbarton bridge two times a day, then lost his job and pension. We would go and visit him in bars in Jack London square.
Do do do do do do do do do do do Do do do do do do do do do do do El Cerrito If there is a lesson from this story to be learned. It's not exactly what you think. You shouldn't be concerned. It's not that we don't like the rich, it's simply that we think it's kind of boring. Everybody acts and thinks the same that's why I live in El Cerrito.
Almond Grove. From 's Berkeley to Bakersfield. No he never come back In a national boulevard, ladies don't you weep and moan I've gone to a better place off the dirty streets Mr Patel, won't you send my ashes home? Spread 'em in the old family almond grove. If you don't know it If you haven't heard it If you don't think it You are beautiful If you come to doubt it If you don't feel it If you haven't heard it You are beautiful Now you own your own coffee shop Punk rock shows at matinees You got a little house west of San Pablo Don't you know you're still beautiful?
Two teenagers with blue Mohawks Working at the local fruit co-op Everything's different but nothing has changed Don't you know that you're beautiful? Big Dipper. This one's slow and moody, about Santa Cruz and it's "Giant Dipper" roller coaster. David Lowery described Santa Cruz as combining "carrot juice and cigarettes. I'll be yours without a doubt on that Big Dipper And if the sound of this it frightens you We could play it real cool and act somewhat indifferent And hey June why'd you have to come Why'd you have to come around, so soon?
I wasn't ready for all this nature The terrible green green grass And violent blooms of flowered dresses And afternoons that make me sleepy But we could wait awhile Before we push that dull turnstile into the passage The thousands they have tread and others sometimes fled Before the turn came And we could wait our lives before a chance arrives Before the passage From the top you can see Monterey or think about San Jose Though I know it's not that pleasant And hey Jim, Kerouac, a brother of the famous Jack Or so he likes to say, lucky bastard He's sitting on the Cafe Xeno's steps with a girl I'm not over yet Watching all the world go by California Country Boy.
King of Bakersfield. Ain't nobody's business how you live your life I'm a red state union man from California Life is good they call me king of Bakersfield Life is good they call me king of Bakersfield Life is good they call me king of Bakersfield ". Miss Santa Cruz County. From the album "Forever" released in The San Bernardino Boy. He'll grow up to be dumb as dirt by 23 with the county sherriff on his trail.
I've seen him over by the keg dancin' on his broken leg Blisters risin' on his sunburned hide. Later on tonight he'll be startin' up a fight Till those billy clubs commence to wail. John Fogerty had never been to Lodi in when he chose the city to represent a dead-end town that a down on his luck musician couldn't escape after a one night stand. Jim Croce was a popular folk rock singer originally from Philadelphia.
