  • This has probably already been posted too, but there's a lot of "stuff" to go back and check! LOL!

    The Beatles - "Happiness Is A Warm Gun"

        I’d never heard that one either but ran across it while pulling up some of the others. I read the backstory about it and obviously like other songs we’ve posted there’s a double meaning. Lennon got the idea from an NRA magazine, makes me wonder why he was reading it.

        I didn’t post it because the irony is a bit much even for me.

        • Since this is winding down, I think, I’m going to post up two that are anti gun in lyric but probably really about anti violence.

          • The second is a number by Billy Idol. It’s not easy to follow the lyrics so here’s a small bit;



            Flip flop fly
            Lawdy Miss Clawdy
            Of what a story dreams to buy
            Don't need a knife to violate my life
            It's all so insane
            When the other man has none
            You don't need a gun
            Yes a Russian roulette, no fun
            I don't need a gun
            I just need someone
            I don't need a gun



            Decide for yourself, I still like the song and don’t necessarily disagree.

            Problem is “When the other man has” one.


            I’ll leave it at that.

            • Here's one that's definitely not anti-violence. No mention of a gun, though.
              AC/DC - Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (from Family Jewels, 1976) SD. - YouTube

              And may I present a version by the peerless Ms. Jett:
              Joan Jett - Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (Video) - YouTube

              She is just purely a gift from Heaven, isn't she?

                But tell me if you are a real man
                A gunslinger
                Don't tell me a lie
                To make me only yours
                I was only looking for a real man
                A gunslinger
                You already know where to aim
                Criminal love

                          Just like Bruce, no matter what old Neil is singing, he means it.

                          • Well I heard Mr. Young sing a ballad
                            Well I heard old Neil put it down
                            Well I hope Neil Young will remember

                                He must have played this somewhere when he was with Ted Nugent in Damned Yankees. If not they should have.
