Song Lyric Fruit Sunday.

Jim Adams

Good afternoon everyone, this Sunday our prompt from Jim Adams Song Lyric Sunday is songs with fruit in the Title or Lyrics! Well the first to have fruit in the title and lyrics. To start off let’s have some heavy rock!

Cherry Bomb” is the debut single by the all-female bandthe Runaways from their self-titled debut album. “Cherry Bomb” was ranked 52nd on VH1‘s 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs and peaked at number 6 on the BillboardBubbling Under Hot 100 chart.

Singer/guitarist Joan Jett composed the song with Kim Fowley, the band’s then-manager. In the 2005 documentary Edgeplay: A Film About the Runaways, Fowley and former Runaways lead singer Cherie Currie claimed that “Cherry Bomb” was quickly written just for Currie to audition for the band because the band members could not perform the song she originally chose to sing.

The song was included in the soundtrack for the 2014 film Guardians of the Galaxy, in the 2nd episode of the 2019 Amazon Prime series “The Boys“, and in the 2021 Netflix film Fear Street Part Two: 1978.

Jett re-recorded the song with her band the Blackhearts for the 1984 album Glorious Results of a Misspent Youth. Cherie Currie also re-recorded “Cherry Bomb” with Marie Currie, her twin sister, on their 1997 re-released version of the album Messin’ with the Boys.

Can’t stay at home, can’t stay at school
Old folks say, “You poor little fool”
Down the streets I’m the girl next door
I’m the fox you’ve been waiting for

Hello, daddy, hello, mom
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Hello world I’m your wild girl
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb

Stone age love and strange sounds too
Come on, baby, let me get to you
Bad nights causing teenage blues
Get down ladies, you’ve got nothin’ to lose

Hello, daddy, hello, mom
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Hello world I’m your wild girl
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb

Hello, daddy, hello, mom
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Hello world I’m your wild girl
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb

Hey, street boy, what some style?
Your dead end dreams don’t make you smile
I’ll give you something to live for
Have you and grab you until you’re sore

Hello, daddy, hello, mom
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Hello world I’m your wild girl
I’m your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry Bomb

Next up my favourite Beatle, George Harrison and the lovely Apples Scruffs which is a real tribute to all the Beatles fans.

Apple Scruffs” is a song by English rock musician George Harrison from his 1970 triple album All Things Must Pass. He wrote it as a tribute to the die-hard Beatles fans known as Apple scruffs, who used to wait outside the Apple Corps building and other London locations for a glimpse of the band members. This tradition continued after the group’s break-up in April 1970, as the scruffs were a regular presence outside the studios where Harrison recorded his album. The song was also issued on the album’s second single, as the B-side to “What Is Life“.

Harrison recorded “Apple Scruffs” in the style of Bob Dylan, playing acoustic guitar and harmonica on the basic track. As such, the song is a departure from the big sound synonymous with All Things Must Pass. In his lyrics, Harrison expresses gratitude for the scruffs’ support, states his love for them, and acknowledges that outsiders misunderstand their devotion. Harrison invited the scruffs into EMI Studios to hear the finished recording.

A popular track on radio and with several music critics, it was listed with the A-side on some singles charts in Australia and the United States. Some writers have commented on the song’s significance in light of John Lennon’s murder in 1980 and the attempted murder of Harrison in 1999, both at the hands of individuals obsessed with the Beatles, and in the context of the latter-day cult of celebrity.

.

Lastly this is a real beauty and hands up I have used it before but it’s perfect for the post and it’s the wonderful Kate Bush.

Eat the Music” is a song written and recorded by Kate BushColumbia Records released it as the lead single from Bush’s album The Red Shoes in the United States, while EMI chose “Rubberband Girl” everywhere else in the world. In the United Kingdom, a small handful of extremely rare 7″ and promotional CD-singles were produced, but were recalled by EMI Recods.

Eat the music is on The Red Shoes the seventh studio album by English musician Kate Bush. Released on 1 November 1993, it was accompanied by Bush’s short film, The Line, the Cross and the Curve, and was her last album before a 12-year hiatus. The album peaked at number two on the UK Albums Chart and has been certified platinum by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), denoting shipments in excess of 300,000 copies. In the United States, the album reached number 28 on the Billboard 200, her highest-peaking album on the chart to date.

Split me open
With devotion
You put your hands in
And rip my heart out
Eat the music

Does he conceal
What he really feels?
He’s a woman at heart
And I love him for that
Let’s split him open

Like a pomegranate
Insides out
All is revealed
Not only women bleed

Take the stone out
Of the mango
You put it in your mouth
And pull a plum out

Take a papaya
You like a guava?
Grab a banana
And a sultana
Rip them to pieces
With sticky fingers
Split the banana
Crush the sultana

Split ’em open
With devotion
You put your hands in
And rip their hearts out

Like a pomegranate
Insides out
He’s a woman at heart
And love him for that

Take a papaya
You like a guava?
Grab a banana
And a sultana
Rip them to pieces
With sticky fingers
Split the banana
Crush the sultana

All emotion
And with devotion
You put your hands in
What ya thinking?
What am I singing?
A song of seeds
The food of love
Eat the music

Jim Adams

It’s Sunday and so it’s time for Jim Adam’s SONG LYRIC SUNDAY. Our prompt this week is : Apple/ Banana/ Cherry/ Olive/ Orange/ Strawberry.

The song I chose first was from Kate Bush’s The Line, the Cross and the Curve album is Eat the Music. Eat the Music” is a song written and recorded by Kate Bush.  Columbia Records released it as the lead single from Bush’s album The Red Shoes in the United States, while EMI chose “Rubberband Girl” everywhere else in the world. In the United Kingdom, a small handful of extremely rare 7″ and promotional CD-singles were produced, but were recalled by EMI Records at the last minute. A commercial release followed in 1994 in the Netherlands and Australia, along with a handful of other countries.

The Line, the Cross and the Curve is a 1993 British musical short film directed by and starring singer Kate Bush, co-starring Miranda Richardson and choreographer Lindsay Kemp, who had served as dance mentor to Bush early in her career. Wikipedia Initial release: 13 November 1993 moDirector: Kate BushScreenplay: Kate BushProducer: Margarita DoyleNominations: Grammy Award for Best Music Film.

Next Coldplay and Strawberry Swing.

Strawberry Swing” is a song by British rock band Coldplay. On 13 September 2009, it was released as the fifth and final single from the band’s fourth studio album, Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends (2008). The song was written by the members of the band and was produced by Markus DravsBrian EnoJon Hopkins and Rik Simpson. The track received mostly positive reviews from music critics who praised the infectious melody, the vocal performance of Chris Martin and the tribal influence of the production.

“Strawberry Swing” reached a position of 158 on the UK Singles Chart and reached position 5 on both the Polish Singles Chart and the Dutch Tipparade charts. The song received a stop-motion music video directed by Shynola, which was nominated for Breakthrough Video at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards. Coldplay performed the song on their 2008 Viva la Vida Tour, and a live version of the song appeared on Coldplay’s live albumLeftRightLeftRightLeft (2009).

The song was performed in the 2012 Summer Paralympics closing ceremony, with the British ParaorchestraR&B singer-songwriter Frank Ocean released a cover version of the song on his 2011 mixtape Nostalgia, Ultra to positive reviews from critics, and later performed it during his 2012 Coachella Music Festival appearance and his 2012 Channel Orange tour. Information here.

Then of course the glorious Tori Amos and the power of Orange Knickers.

From The Beekeeper Album.

  • During an interview with Uncut magazine, the comment was made that it’s interesting that Amos had written a song about sin and sensuality when the biggest moral debates in the US are about abortion and gay rights. She replied: “America is such a land of extremes. On the one hand, you have this puritanical ideology that lots of people have adopted and on the other you have a huge porn industry that exploits everybody and makes lots of money.”

    “The thing that’s missing from both is sensuality, and I think that’s the sign of a damaged society,” she continued. “Its not healthy for sex and sexuality to always be portrayed as dirty or depraved and what it takes to turn people on sometimes shocks me.”

    “There are a lot of damaged women out there who can’t respond unless they take on another character because they haven’t been taught they can just be a worker bee,” Amos added. “I’m a worker bee and I love being a worker bee.”
  • One of the song’s lyrics questions “who is this terrorist?” Amos explained: “I’ve followed the US administration and I genuinely believe they’ve emotionally blackmailed and manipulated the American people. We’re living in a frightening time and I wish people would wake up and realise they’re surrendering their civil liberties.”

Then of course Cherry, well it’s got to be Cherry Oh! Baby by the Stones.

  • This is cover of Eric Donaldson’s 1971 reggae song. The Stones recorded Goats Head Soup three years earlier in Jamaica, but this is the most they got into reggae.
  • This was the first time Ron Wood appeared on a Stones album. They were auditioning lead guitarists during Black And Blue, and while Wood only played on this and “Hey Negrita,” he was named to the band before it was released and appeared on the cover.
  • The reggae group from England UB40 also covered this. It’s on their 1983 album Labour Of Love>>
  • Charlie Watts (from According to the Rolling Stones): “The reggae influence on the songs on Black And Blue came primarily from Keith… Mick was certainly into reggae. I had all those (reggae) records in France with me when we moved there and when we were recording tracks for Exile on Main St. at Keith’s house. Mick used to have them as well. I’d play him ‘Cherry Oh Baby’ or he’d play one to me. And The Harder They Come was an album Keith listened to a lot.” Information from here.

“Cherry Oh Baby”

Oh, cherry, oh cherry, oh baby
doncha know i in need of thee

why don’t you love me, too
its so long i been waiting

whoa, eeyo, eeyo, eeyo, eeyo

yeeeaah, yeah, yeah, yeah
yeeeaah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Apple well for me that means George Harrison and Apple Scruffs.

Apple Scruffs” is a song by English musician George Harrison, released on his 1970 triple album All Things Must Pass. It was written as a tribute to the die-hard Beatles fans known as Apple scruffs, who would wait in certain London locations where the band members were likely to appear, even long after the group’s break-up in April 1970.The recording has been noted for its Bob Dylan influence, featuring Harrison on acoustic guitar and harmonica, and is recognised as a departure from the big sound synonymous with All Things Must Pass. “Apple Scruffs” was also released as the B-side to “What Is Life“, gaining further popularity through airplay on US radio, and became the preferred side of the single in some countries.

“Apple Scruffs”

Now I’ve watched you sitting there
Seen the passers-by all stare
Like you have no place to go
But there’s so much they don’t know about Apple Scruffs

You’ve been stood around for years
Seen my smiles and touched my tears
How it’s been a long, long time
And how you’ve been on my mind, my Apple Scruffs

Apple Scruffs, Apple Scruffs
How I love you, how I love you

In the fog and in the rain
Through the pleasures and the pain
On the step outside you stand
With your flowers in your hand, my Apple Scruffs

While the years they come and go
Now, your love must surely show me
That beyond all time and space
We’re together face to face, my Apple Scruffs

Apple Scruffs, Apple Scruffs
How I love you, how I love you.

Finally The Olive Tree by Judith Durham.

Judith Durham AO (Judith Mavis Cock; born 3 July 1943) is an Australian singer, songwriter and musician who became the lead singer of the Australian popular folk music group The Seekers in 1963.The group subsequently became the first Australian pop music group to achieve major chart and sales success in the United Kingdom and the United States, and have sold over 50 million records worldwide. Durham left the group in mid-1968 to pursue her solo career. In 1993, Durham began to make sporadic recordings and performances with The Seekers, though she remains primarily a solo performer. On 1 July 2015, she was named Victorian of the Year for her services to music and a range of charities. “The Olive Tree” was written by Tom Springfield, with lyrics by Diane Lampert, and Judith first sang it in a sequence of The Seekers’ 1967 … Such an amazing voice, such a lovely person.
