Here you can discus Chris' lyrics
Being a petrolhead with a passion for vintage cars I was wondering what songs CR wrote about cars or mentioning them in the lyrics. The first thing which comes to my mind is the fabulous La Passione soundtrack (gotta love "Girl In A Sportscar"!). Secondly, there is "Johnny Needs A Fast Car". Oh, and there is a song "I'm In My Car".
What else is there?
You would have to add Suadade, which is Chris`s tribute to Ayrton Senna....
Between the eyes of love I call your name
Behind the guarded walls I used to go
Upon a summer wind there's a certain melody
Takes me back to the place that I know
Down on the beach
I envy you, you can experience Blue Guitars for the first time!
Blue Guitars you should get indeed, make it as your first choice.
Too many good words to add here.
I better just sit back and drink beer.
I remember the 1st time I listened to Blue Guitars......I didn't like it at all and put it away for 3 months before I listened to it again now I can't get enough of it.
I would love to go back discover Chris's music that would be amazing so much great music waiting for you
Happy times ahead
Pick up the pieces and start again.
A thread about Chris and racing, I couldn't resist!
"Red" from the Auberge album I think is about the red cars and "Never Been Anyone Quite Like You"
from "The Blue Cafe" is about a racing driver but I'm not sure if it is Schumacher or Senna.
No doubt there are many more as well
It's just me
and my deep blue ways...
Thank you very much so far. By now I do only know
- Herzklopfen (compilation)
- Espresso Logic
- Road to Hell II
- The blue Cafè
- Stony Road
- The return of the fabulous blue Hofner notes
- 12 additional songs from a mixed compilation made by a friend.
So there is a lot to discover, starting with Blue Guitars and La Passione.
I'd like to add a musical tip, Get Lucky - the new work by Mark Knopfler could be something what Chris Rea fans appreciate too.
Look for a song called Jordan 191 - a B side on the single Julia (I have it as a B side on the CD).
It is a song based on one of the forst Formula 1 cars designed for Eddie Jordans F1 race Team. Eddie is a big mate of Chris and they have occassionally played together (jamming) at F1 parties as Eddie is a drummer.
