about

All hail Rock'N'Roll. Iconic phrase. It reads a little differently for me. "All hail RockRoll." Not sure what's up with this one. The original demo posted on Sweet Tooth featured an almost rockabilly-like vocal colouring. I tried to stay away from that this time around. Give the vocals a more urban feel. I didn't get all I wanted in that regard but the angels and I did find a happy medium. That ol' cowboy inflection kept wanting to come back up.

lyrics

Psychotic - all hail rock and roll
Psychotic - everybody wants to go
Psychotic - ooh, c’mon … crank it up
Psychotic - just about sums it up

Seven thirty … still sunny side up
Feeling like a million bucks (oh, baby)
Step into the night
In my blue suede shoes
Money in my pocket and the beat’s all crazy

Psychotic - all hail rock and roll
Psychotic - everybody wants to go
Psychotic - ooh, c’mon … crank it up
Psychotic - just about sums it up

Nine o’clock … smoky little room
Backstage with lady luck (oh, baby)
Step out on the stage
With a beat up old guitar
Drums are pounding and the crowd’s all crazy

Psychotic - hail hail rock and roll
Psychotic - everybody wants to go
Psychotic - c’mon, crank it up
Psychotic - just about sums it up

Let the music rock and roll you - ah, yeah
Take you for a little ride
And you’ll feel alright

Psychotic - all hail rock and roll
Psychotic - everybody’s gotta go
Psychotic - ooh, c’mon and crank it up
Psychotic - just about sums it up

Ten past twelve … witching hour’s here
Walk into a million stars (and maybe)
Try and get some sleep
Give these shoes a rest
They won’t stop moving when the beat’s all crazy

Psychotic - here’s to rock and roll
Psychotic - everybody wants to go
Psychotic - ooh, come on and crank it up
Psychotic - yeah, just about sums it up

Let the music rock and roll you - ah yeah -
Take you for a little ride
And you’ll feel alright

Psychotic - hail hail rock and roll
Psychotic - all for rock and roll
Psychotic - who’s your little rock and roll
Psychotic - here’s to rock and roll
Psychotic - c’mon baby, rock and roll
Psychotic - hey, little rock and roll
Psychotic - here’s to rock and roll
Psychotic - hey, little rock and roll
Psychotic …

about

Robert James Wetaskiwin, Alberta

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. 2020's Covid Cutie. "Sweet Tooth" is currently home to at least six tracks that will appear on our upcoming seventh release entitled "Piece Of Your Ghost". I'm currently close to release of two new singles for our "Or In Cyprus" collection. Just one release to date. Lonely soul ... needs pals. xoRJ ... more
