The Angels – Am I ever going to see your face again?

Probably one of the most popular of all pub songs in the late 70s and early 80s, this track by the Angels,  “Am I ever going to see your face again?”   🙂   After Doc Neeson sang the main line “Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again” the crowd would scream back: No Way! Get F**ked! F**k Off! It got to the point where he would pause and point the mike to the audience for them to scream and go wild. –  Enjoy this live performance by the Angels, fronted by the late great Doc Neeson.

Went down to Santa Fe, where Renoir paints the walls,
Described you clearly, but the sky began to fall

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

Trams cars and taxis, like a wax-works on the move
Carrying young girls past me, but none of them are you

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

Without you near me I got no place to go
Wait at the bar, maybe you might show

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

I got to stop these tears that’s falling from my eye
Go walk out in the rain, so no one sees me cry

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

Can’t stop the memory that goes climbing through my brain
I get no answer so the question still remains

Am I ever gonna see your face again?

 

Skyhooks – You just like me cause I’m good in bed.

Here is a song to sing along to.  Do it loud!  You know you want too.   Skyhook’s classic “You just like me cause I’m good in bed”  performed live in Melbourne in the 80’s during their reunion tour.  Many of the bands song were banned from radio due to their offensive lyrics and tone.  No wonder they sold so many records.  Enjoy!  ~RB~

You just like me ‘cos I’m good in bed (X 4)

You just like me ‘cos I’m good in bed
Yeah that’s what your girlfriend said
You just like me ‘cos I give you some head
You just like me ‘cos I’m good in bed

Well I’ll meet you in the pub at two minutes to ten
You’re all ready to go
Six bottles of beer and a sneer on your face
I’d run but I’m much too slow

You just like me ‘cos I’m good in bed (X 4)

At half past one I’m flat on the floor
Caught like a rat in a trap
Fifteen times a week and you still want more
God you talk such crap

You just like ‘cos I’m good in bed (X 4)

You imagine yourself as Mick Jagger’s girlfriend
He wouldn’t even spit in your eye
I bet you he don’t get raped every weekend
I feel so weak I could die

You just like me ‘cos I’m good in bed (X 4)

You just like me ‘cos I’m good in bed
Yeah that’s what your girlfriend said
You just like me ‘cos I’m good in bed
You just like me ‘cos I’m good in bed

Cold Chisel – Cheap Wine

A song that really became something of an anthem for the pub circuit in Australia in the 80’s.  Cold Chisel’s “Cheap Wine”, featuring Jimmy Barnes and the band after a big night out.   This song is a track from the 1980 album “East”

 

 

“Cheap Wine”

Once I smoked a Danneman cigar
I drove a foreign car
Baby that was years ago
I left it all behind
I had a friend, I heard she died
On a needle she was crucified
Baby that was years ago
I left it all behind for my

Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Come-on, come-on, come-on

I don’t mind takin’ charity
From those that I despise
I don’t really need your love
I don’t need your love
Baby you can shout at me
But you can’t meet my eyes
I don’t really need your love
I don’t need your love
I got my

Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Come-on, come-on, come-on

I’m sitting on the beach drinkin’ rocket fuels – oh yeah!
I spent the whole night breakin’ all the rules – oh yeah!
Mending every minute of the day before
Watching the ocean, watching the shore
Watching the sunrise, and thinkin’ there could never be more
Never be more

Anytime you want to find me
I don’t got a telephone
I’m another world away
But I always feel at home
With my

Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Come-on, come-on, come-on

Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Cheap wine and a three-day growth
Come-on, come-on, come-on

 

Tripod – Cuckold.

 

I arrived home early,
She thought that I’d be late,
And my girly,
Wasn’t waiting at the gate.
I climbed the stairs,
The stairs that I had climbed a hundred times before
And there, I heard a noise
Behind the bedroom door.
A silent prayer, escaped my lips as if I knew what was in store,
I, I,
I tore the bedsheet off, and there she was with another man,
I looked into her eyes and then I knew
I am now a cuckold,
She cuckolded me.
When your love is loving someone else,
A cuckold you be,
This cuckoldation, has cuckoldafied me,
And cuckoldentilly I’m cuckoldised by her cuckoldity.
Cuckoldish me, life has taken on a cuckoldastic twist,
I should have seen, when I looked at her,
She was a cuckoldist
I am now a cuckold,
She cuckolded me,
When your love is loving someone else,
A cuckold will you be.
Her cuckoldastic tendencies have brought me to my knees,
Oh please, I reminise on my pre-cuckishious period
And these cuckolditory things that make me post-cuckoldic,
Ah cuck,
I feel like such a cuckhead.
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh.

Oz classic – Dragon : I’m still in love with you.

 

It’s Friday night.  Time for some Aussie/Kiwi classics from the vault!  This classic is by the band Dragon.  “I’m still in love with you.”  Gotta love the 70’s retro fashions.  Enjoy!

Ducked downtown in a local bar
Drinking rum and smoking tar
People there really put you down
Ooh babe, you been dancing ’round

It don’t matter what you do
I’m still in love with you
It don’t matter what they say
You can have me anyway

I’m still in love with you
I’m still in love with you

Really cowboy, it’s no joke
All my dreams go up in smoke
Here’s a drink and it’s goin’ south
I should never have opened up my mouth

It don’t matter what you do
I’m still in love with you
It don’t matter what they say
You can have me anyway

I’m still in love with you
I’m still in love with you

You say you’d call me up
When you get out of school
But you know that’s a lie
You’re so cruel, cruel

Oh no baby
Oh no baby
No, no, no
Oh no baby

So in the end it works out the same
You got no job and you got no name
I played my cards and I played them fast
You don’t say they just never last

It don’t matter what you do
I’m still in love with you
It don’t matter what they say
You can have me anyway

I’m still in love with you
I’m still in love with you

Still in love
Still in love
Still in love
