A little bit of Gomez - for bam_a_lam
Here are a couple of videos - bet you end up recognizing the songs - *G*. Looks like Beecake did at least one cover, possibly two, during their shows (but not of these songs).

Eeeee thank you so much Ros!

I don't remember hearing either song before, but I definitely dig their sound. The second song and video is especially awesome and I can see why you and Billy like them. :)

Thank you so much for sharing! ♥

Wow... can't believe they're not playing them near you!

Now I have to go buy some older CD's. I heard people say they played "Hammer's Gonna Fall", or something like that, on Friday... but I thought I also heard that "Gonna Be Arrested" was one of theirs. I didn't know either.

They played "Hammer to Fall" on Friday and "Arrested" on Saturday. At least that's what Billy wrote. :)

They're both Gomez songs? Or not? :D

I could have sworn people mentioned both of them as Gomez songs...

*googles*

Ah!!! "Get Myself Arrested" is by Gomez; "Hammer to Fall is by QUEEN!

So... a song about how death comes to us all, and a song about riding around in a BMW with a siver tooth... trying to score some grass? Oooookay....

"Hammer to Fall" lyrics are below:

Yeah
Here we stand or here we fall
History won't care at all
Make the bed, light the light
Lady mercy won't be home tonight

Yeah, you don't waste no time at all
Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
It comes to you as to us all
Hey, we're just waiting
For the hammer to fall - yeah

Oh every night, and every day
A little piece of you is falling away
But lift your face, the western way, baby
Build your muscles as your body decays

Yeah, toe your line and play their game
Yeah, let the anaesthetic cover it all
Till one day they call your name
You know it's time for the hammer to fall - yeah

Rich or poor or famous for
Your truth it's all the same - oh no - oh no
Oh lock your door but rain is pouring
Through your window pane - oh no - yeah
Baby now your struggle's all vain

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh

For we who grew up tall and proud
In the shadow of the mushroom cloud
Convinced our voices can't be heard
We just wanna scream it louder and louder and louder

What the hell we fighting for ?
Ah, just surrender and it won't hurt at all
You just got time to say your prayers
Eh, while you're waiting for the hammer to hammer to fall
Hey, yes, it's starting to fall eh, hammer, you know
Yeah, hammer to fall, wooh, ah, hey, eh woowoo, ha eh hammer
Waiting for the hammer to fall baby
Yeah yeah while you're waiting for the hammer to fall
Give it to me one more time

"Get Myself Arrested" lyrics are below:

I wear the same shoes as everyone
I got the same blues as everyone
So try and call me, I'm immobile man
Yes I am

Got a haircut, got a silver tooth
Gonna get myself arrested
Got some friends in my BMW
Tryin'a get themselves arrested

I suck the same lines as anyone
I do the same time as anyone
Don't try and call me, I'm immobile man
Yes I am

Got a haircut, got a silver tooth
Gonna get myself arrested
Got some friends in my BMW
Tryin'a get themselves arrested

He only grows for guys he knows and me
He only grows for guys he knows and me
Well, alright

Don't try and call me, I'm immobile man
Don't try and call me, I'm immobile man
Yes I am

Got a haircut, got a silver tooth
Gonna get myself arrested
Got some friends in my BMW
Tryin'a get themselves arrested

Got no time for the selfish me and you's
Tryin'a get myself arrested

No kidding!

Although... hey - he's used to learning lines, I guess. But a stoner song? *L*!

True, true. I'm dumb and forgot about the learning lines thing. ;D

Perhaps that is his favourite Queen song?

*L*! No you're not dumb!

Funny - I don't think I'd ever heard that song before.
