Song Lyric Sunday

Song Lyric Sunday

Helen Espinosa chose Sex as this week’s Song Lyric Sunday theme. It doesn’t have to be graphic, but you can find out how to play along by clicking the link above.

I prefer something a little more subtle, but no less raw, so I’ve chosen a classic 1972 Eagles song — hey, sex, drugs, and rock and roll go together like Luke, Leia, and Han and Chewy, right? The “video” is a still, but the original album track has been remastered, so the quality is great.

Triple Bonus: Here’s a 1977 8:36 live version with some wonderful guitar work leading into the song as you know it at about 4:30. Here’s a shorter 1976 live recording And for something unexpected, Kristin Chenoweth recorded this song for what was probably the best part of the movie Bewitched (with Nicole Kidman, Will Ferrell, and a Rotten Tomatoes Rating of 25%.

Witchy Woman

by Don Henley and Bernie Leadon

Raven hair and ruby lips
sparks fly from her finger tips
Echoed voices in the night
she’s a restless spirit on an endless flight
wooo hooo witchy woman, see how
high she fly 
woo hoo witchy woman she got
the moon in her eye 
She held me spellbound in the night
dancing shadows and firelight
crazy laughter in another
room and she drove herself to madness
with a silver spoon
woo hoo witchy woman see how high she fly 
woo hoo witchy woman she got the moon in her eye 
Well I know you want a lover,
let me tell your brother, she’s been sleeping
in the Devil’s bed.
And there’s some rumors going round
someone’s underground
she can rock you in the nighttime
’til your skin turns red
woo hoo witchy woman
see how high she fly 
woo hoo witchy woman
she got the moon in her eye
