Day 84: “Still… You Turn Me On” – Emerson Lake & Palmer

!!!ITALIANO!!!

This ballad I suggest today is really a great composition. It is part of the fourth studio album by ELP, from 1973, called  Brain Salad Surgery, which is considered one of the best records y the English trio. The album is progressive rock with a big classical influence and was released when the band had reached a very high artistic maturity. The cover of the album was painted by H.R. Giger, Alien‘s designer.

There is no accordion in this nice live version, whereas it is present in the studio version, played bythe keyboards player Keith Emerson; our blog will soon suggest something more from this band in order to listen to him and to the drumer Carl Palmer. Now let us enjoy Greg Lake‘s voice (guitarist, bass guitarist, vocalist and author of today’s song), and his wonderful arpeggio.

Lyrics

Do you want to be an angel,
Do you wanna be an angel
Do you wanna be a star
Do you wanna play some magic
On my guitar
Do you wanna be a poet
Do you wanna be my string
You could be anything

Do you wanna be the lover of another undercover
You could even be the
Man on the moon

Do you wanna be the player
Do you wanna be the string
Let me tell you something
It just don’t mean a thing

You see it really doesn’t matter
When you’re buried in disguise
By the dark glass on your eyes
Though your flesh has crystallised
Still…you turn me on

Do you wanna be the pillow
Where I lay my head
Do you wanna be the feathers
Lying on my bed
Do you wanna be the cover
Of a magazine
Create a scene

Every day a little sadder
A little madder
Someone get me a ladder

Do you wanna be the singer
Do you wanna be the song
Let me tell you something
You just couldn’t be more wrong

You see I really have to tell you
That it all gets so intense
From my experience
It just doesn’t seem to make sense
Still…you turn me on
