Music Monday

Hi everyone.
Last week I decided to join Lady Java and Mariuca in Music Monday.
I love music, can´t live without it so I think that participating in Music Monday is a nice idea to start well the week.
I like different types of music, old and new, but I grew up as a Rock fan. I like many groups and some are Portuguese.
Today´s video isn´t new but it´s one of my favorite songs and singer. I had the pleasure to see him performing live in Lisbon. To me, it was one of the best music concerts I went to, after Pink Floyd in 1994 in Sporting football stadium.
A good Monday!



Lyrics:

Doctor Doctor what is wrong with me
This supermarket life is getting long
What is the heart life of a colour TV
What is the shelf life of a teenage queen
Ooh western woman
Ooh western girl
News hound sniffs the air
When Jessica Hahn goes down
He latches on to that symbol
Of detachment
Attracted by the peeling away of feeling
The celebrity of the abused shell the belle
Ooh western woman
Ooh western girl
And the children of Melrose
Strut their stuff
Is absolute zero cold enough
And out in the valley warm and clean
The little ones sit by their TV screens
No thoughts to think
No tears to cry
All sucked dry
Down to the very last breath
Bartender what is wrong with me
Why am I so out of breath
The captain said excuse me ma'am
This species has amused itself to death
Amused itself to death
Amused itself to death
We watched the tragedy unfold
We did as we were told
We bought and sold
It was the greatest show on earth
But then it was over
We ohhed and aahed
We drove our racing cars
We ate our last few jars of caviar
And somewhere out there in the stars
A keen-eyed look-out
Spied a flickering light
Our last hurrah
And when they found our shadows
Grouped around the TV sets
They ran down every lead
They repeated every test
They checked out all the data on their lists
And then the alien anthropologists
Admitted they were still perplexed
But on eliminating every other reason
For our sad demise
They logged the only explanation left
This species has amused itself to death
No tears to cry no feelings left
This species has amused itself to death

Hi everyone. Thanks for dropping by!
I´m glad you liked my choice, it was difficult to choose my first MM.

Mariuca: I already got the new linky code, thanks so much for the update.

Anne: Hi. Thanks, I´m sure we will have fun. Cheers.

Ladyjava: I love concerts, although I don´t go as often as I would like to.
I don´t have any family to take care of my daughter so it´s tuff to make 300 km to the capital to see a concert.
You bet I had fun, and off course I´ll join you next Monday.
Cheers.

Bonoriau: Good taste! He´s one of my favorites. I think I like all his songs but some have a special feeling and excellent lyrics, like this one.
Cheers.
