Don Henly – Boys of Summer

Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer’s out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I’m driving by your house
Though I know you’re not home

But I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream
Now I don’t understand what happened to our love
But babe, I’m gonna get you back
I’m gonna show you what I’m made of

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
I see you walking real slow and you’re smilin’ at everyone
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Out on the road today, I saw a DEADHEAD sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice inside my head said, “Don’t look back. You can never look back”
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but-

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got that top pulled down and that radio on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got that hair slicked back and those Wayfarers on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

一応、夏終わり、、気候的には、まだ夏だけども、夏の締めっぽい曲。

急に思い出した。
このDon Henley バージョンではないCDをGoldfield’sでかけようとしたら、
“Noooooo MTV Music.”と言われたことを😁
他のTattoo Studioで某バンドの曲を流したときは
”耳から血が出るから止めてくれ”と言われた😁
今は、どうだか知らないが、数年前、あの辺りのTattoo Studioで
Death Metalを流すのが流行っていた😂
Goldfield’sでもたまにDeath Metalが流れていた。
そこへHenryがやってきて、
“これは音楽ではない!音楽をかけろ!!”
それを受けて、誰かさんが、慌ててCDを取り替えた。
Frank Sinatraに😬
(誰かさんがFrank SinatraのCDを持っていたのも驚きだった😬)…すると
Henryは ”too muchだ!他の音楽にしろ!”
皆んなで、、これはどうだ?あれはどうだ?と、店内の音楽を探し、結局、
Henryは、50 Centで機嫌がおさまった。
