Last man standing

Last man standing is the name of a new CD by Jerry Lee Lewis. They played it when I visited a record shop today. I was hooked and bought it. The CD has 21 tracks, different guest on each of them. Among the guests are several of my favourites like Eric Clapton, BB King, Mick Jagger, John Fogerty and Buddy Guy.

There is history behind the name of the CD. Fifty years ago Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee was the home of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis. Among these founding fathers of rock and roll, Jerry Lee is the “last man standing”.

If you want my body – Hanne Boel

It is the title of a song on the CD “Dark Passion” with one of my favourite singers, Hanne Boel from Denmark. Part of the lyrics goes like this: “If you want my body, you got to make love to my mind”. That rings true to me too. There’s a video below the lyrics.

Lyrics

I’m aware of you, see you around sometimes,
Casual talk and neither one ever steps over the line.
But it’s crossed my mind, it’s crossed my mind.
And I might sometimes, except for the fact that,
If you want my body, you got to make love to my mind,
If you want my body, you got to make love to my mind.

Got your high position, and your BMW
You got big money ways and baby that’s cool
But you ain’t playing with a fool
Oh I’ve paid the price, and I’m feeling nice, about myself,
And I don’t think twice, about telling you that,
If you want my body, you got to make love to my mind,
If you want my body, you got to make love to my mind.

Oh, I’m a sensitive girl,
And I love it when it’s feeling right,
And I could take you to paradise
If only just for the night
Youll remember it, you’ll remember it,
But don’t forget, the fact still remains,

If you want my body, you got to make love to my mind,
If you want my body, you got to make love to my mind.
