Day 41: “Joker & The Thief” – Wolfmother

!!!ITALIANO!!!

This is the sixth single from Wolfmother’s debut album, and maybe it sounds familiar for some of you. Actually Joker & The Thief was used in many movie soundtracks, including The HangoverShoot ‘Em UpShrek The Third, Jackass Number Two, videogames like Need for Speed: Carbon, Mitsubishi and Peugeot’s commercials.

Wolfmother are an Australian band which used to mix hard rock sounds with psychedelic elements, electronic and old-style rock, producing a genre that recalls sixties and seventies music. The album from which today’s song comes is called like the band itself,  and it was published in 2005 first in their country, where it was a gread success, and then in the rest of the world in the following year. From this album other songs where used in soundtracks, like Vagabond, that we can hear in the romantic comedy (500) Days of Summer, and Woman, in The Game Plan and a videogame’s original soundtrack.

Wolfmother have recently been in Italy, where they performed on June 7, at the Live Club in Trezzo d’Adda (Milano).

Let yourself be involved from the extraordinary energy of this song, the vintage sounds and the incredible voice of Andrew Stockdale, who was also involved in the Slash solo album’s production, working at the By the Sword song’s recording.

Joker & The Thied – Wolfmother Lyrics

I said the joker is a wanted man,
He makes his way all across the land,
See him sifting through the sand,

So I’ll tell you all the story,
About the joker and the thief of the night,

Always laughing in the midst of power,
Always living in the final hour,
There is always sweet in the sour,

We are not goin’ home,

Can you see the joker flying over,
As she’s standing in the field of clover,
Watching out everyday?
I wonder what would happen if he took her away?

What you see well you might not know,
You get the feelin’ comin’ after the glow,
The vagabond is moving slow,

So I’ll tell you all the story,
‘bout the joker and the thief of the night,

All the people that he see in the night,
Hold their dreams up to the light,
The old beast is searching for sight,

We are not goin’ home,

Can you see the joker flying over,
As she’s standing in the field of clover,
Watching out everyday?
I wonder what would happen if he took her away?

Tell you the story ‘bout the the joker and the thief,
I said, I’ll tell you the story ‘bout the the joker and the thief,
I said, I’ll tell you the story ‘bout the the joker and the thief,
Of the night
