PostSubject: Turn the page - Metallica   Fri Jul 25, 2008 12:46 pm

This was the one of the first Metallica songs I listened to... Manu had brought the video release (uncensored version)...

The video was pretty intense... depicted the story of a prostitute and her young daughter...

Here are the lyrics...



Turn the page

By : Metallica

On a long and lonesome highway east of omaha
You can listen to the engines moaning out as one note song
You think about the woman or the girl you knew the night before

But your thoughts will soon be wandering the way they always do
When you're riding sixteen hours and there's nothing much to do
And you don't feel much like riding, you just wish the trip was through

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

So you walk into this restaurant strung out from the road
And you feel the eyes upon you, as you're shaking off the cold
You pretend it doesn't bother you, but you just want to explode

Yeah, most times you can't hear 'em talk, other times you can
All the same old clichés, "is it woman? is it man?"
And you always seem outnumbered, you don't dare make a stand
Make your stand

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

Oo-ooh, out there in the spotlight, you're a million miles away
Every ounce of energy you try to give away
As the sweat pours out your body like the music that you play, yeah

Later in the evening, you lie awake in bed
With the echoes of the amplifiers ringing in your head
You smoke the day's last cigarette, remembering what she said
What she said

He-ey

Yeah
And here I am - on the road again
There I am - up on a stage
Here I go - playing star again
There I go - turn the page
There I go - turn that page
There I go, yeah, yeah
There I go, yeah, yeah
There I go, yeah
There I go, yeah
There I go, oo-oo-ooh
There I go
And I'm gone



Must say... They are equally intense if not more.... All in all... A good track...

I did a bit of googling around and this is what I stumbled upon..

This song was originally done by Bob Seger (Whosoever he was / is..)

Here is the original track..



And this is the Metallica's cover...



Then there are versions by other bands too... like Staind (a band which I can't stand... not a single bit....) and some I've never heard of before..

All in all.... The Metallica version really kicks some serious arse!!!! Twisted Evil

The vid really is touching. I had seen it when in class 12 and at that time too it did told me things about life. Damn! I'm getting philosophical!
Anyway, Metallica's version is the best!!
