I'm listening to the radio this morning on my way to work, and on comes turn the page. For me, there is no worse song in rock and roll.

The lyrics are the worst. And he's probably responsible for the whole "life is hard for rockstars" genre of music, which means he's indirectly responsible for the most self-indulgent, whiny piece of crap album ever, Pink Floyd's the wall, which means that he's responsible for every piece of whiny, shoe-gazing piece of mope rock that followed.

On a long and lonesome highway, east of omaha.
You can listen to the engine moaning out its one lone song
You can think about woman, or the girl you knew the night before,


Oh, boo-hoo. Poor me, I had secks with groupies. Poor Bob.

But your thoughts will soon be wandering, the way they always do.
When your riding sixteen hours and theres nothing much to do
And you dont feel much like riding, you just wish the trip was through.


How about writing some new songs instead of moping? Don't like riding? It's part of your f'ing job. Tough luck. Don't like it, quit you whiny @#$%.

Say, here I am, on the road again. there I am, up on the stage.
Here I go, playing star again.
There I go, turn the page.


You aren't playing star, you are a star. get used to it.

Well you walk into a restaurant, strung out from the road,
You can feel the eyes upon you as your shaking off the cold
You pretend it doesnt bother you, but you just want to explode.


Waaaah, hicks in highway diners and truckstops who I'll never see again and who make absolutely no difference in my life arre looking funny at me!

Most times you cant hear em talk, other times you can.
Oh the same old cliche, as that woman on her a man
You always seem outnumbered, you dont dare make a stand.


If it bothers you so much, cut your hair and put on some decent clothes. Otherwise, yer a rock star. Deal with it.

Out there in the spotlight your a million miles away,
Every ounce of energy, you try and give away,
As the sweat pours out your body like the music that you play.


You work 2 hours a day, you lazy @#$%. Thank your lucky stars you aren't in a steel mill.

Later in the evening as you lie awake in bed,
With the echo from the amplifiers ringing in your head,


Try some earplugs.

You smoke the days last cigarette, remembering what she said.

Gosh, maybe it's not the ringing in your ears that's keeping you up,maybe it's the nicotine, genius.

Now here I am, on the road again. there I am, up on the stage.
Here I go, playing star again.
There I go, turn the page.
Here I am, on the road again. there I am, up on the stage.
Ah here I go, playing star again.
There I go, there I go.


Worst. Song. Ever.

Slow day at the office? :D

/The song is okay. I like Metallica's version better....only because they sell it better than Bob.

You could argue that he's working the entire time as he's away from his home. I like the song but will admit to liking whining songs on occasion. Not my favorite by far, though.

You lost me there. Clearly you completely missed the point of that album.

And "We Built This City" is universally regarded as the worst rock song ever.

Oh, no, I get the point of the wall. Roger Waters cheated on his wife and proceeded to blame everything under the sun for his infidelity.

Boo hoo, my mom was strict, Boo hoo, groupies throw themselves at me, Boo hoo I feel isolated.

We built this city is bad, no doubt. BUT all it spawned was billy joel's babyboomer manifesto, It's our parent's fault we screwed everything up just as bad as our parents AKA we didn't start the fire. Turn the page spawned hundreds of "it's so hard being me" bits of rock drivel.

We need more songs like this with lyrics that make sense


16 years ago, one day,
I was walking down the street
I was cruising in brooklyn
You know what I mean?
Something was cooking,
But wasnt yet a chicken.

There was a man,
Selling chicks in a box.
He said, 2 for 1, but 3 for 2.
I said, thats not bad,
Heres money for you.
One was magenta,
The other was blue.

I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken
I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken
I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken
I know my chicken

One day, the blue one went away.
The other grew up ****in well.
She was noisy every night.
I had always chicken-bite.

Then I met a lover
One night, she made me dinner.
Licking finger, I wondered
Where she got the chicken.
Then I met a lover.
One night, she made me dinner.
Licking finger, I wondered
Where she got the chicken.

I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken
I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken
I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken
I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken

Spare the rod and spoil the chick
Before you go and **** a brick.
Spare the rod and spoil the chick
Before you go and **** a brick
Spare the rod and spoil the chick
Before you go and **** a brick
Spare the rod and spoil the chick
Before you go and **** a brick

I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken
I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken
I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken
I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken

She went to college to study anatomy
I followed her fathers butchery
We got 2 babies. is it cool?
One was magenta, the other was blue.

I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken
I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken
I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken
I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken
I know my chicken
You got to know your chicken...

Sean looks a great deal like his father. On a side note, Sugar Water was a much better tune.

Bob, we’ve got tonight. Who needs tomorrow?

“I’ll get on a plane if you’re going to talk that way to me. That’s actually one of my favorite Bob Seger songs. It’s not just a song about trying to get laid. ‘Look, I know it’s late. I know you’re weary and your plans don’t include me, but here we are, both of us lonely.’ If you break down that song, he says it again. ‘Both of us lonely.’ Then he gets romantic, you know, ‘come take my hand.’ He’s pressing her. It’s a full-court press.”

What’s Bob Saget’s favorite Bob Seger song to make love to?

“Old Time Rock ’n’ Roll,” but just the intro. What I do is, I put that on and slide into the room right through the door frame in my boxer shorts with a broom. If you make that Tom Cruise Risky Business entrance to the intro of that song—the whole song doesn’t get played—but if you slide into a room like that … you will spend the night alone. They leave. They don’t like that. There’s no way you’re going to close.”

Night Moves reminds me of high school

//this one is about how each one used the other, but nobody really cared and everyone had a good time....



I was a little too tall
Could've used a few pounds
Tight pants points hardly reknown
She was a black-haired beauty with big dark eyes
And points all her own sitting way up high
Way up firm and high

Out past the cornfields where the woods got heavy
Out in the back seat of my '60 Chevy
Workin' on mysteries without any clues
Workin' on our night moves
Tryin' to make some front page drive-in news
Workin' on our night moves
In the summertime
In the sweet summertime

We weren't in love, oh no, far from it
We weren't searchin' for some pie in the sky summit
We were just young and restless and bored
Livin' by the sword
And we'd steal away every chance we could
To the backroom, to the alley or the trusty woods
I used her, she used me
But neither one cared
We were gettin' our share
Workin' on our night moves
Tryin' to lose the awkward teenage blues
Workin' on our night moves
And it was summertime

And oh the wonder
We felt the lightning
And we waited on the thunder
Waited on the thunder

I awoke last night to the sound of thunder
How far off I sat and wondered
Started humming a song from 1962
Ain't it funny how the night moves
When you just don't seem to have as much to lose
Strange how the night moves
With autumn closing in
