Rock Band must-haves.

I’ve always said that we need the song “Born to Be Wild” by Steppenwolf for Rock Band. When I signed up for the forum, that was the first song I suggested. I have, over time, decided that Rock Band will not be complete until these two songs are both included. You may not be as familiar with them as I, so I include lyrics below. (Some people put a line or two from a song lyric in their Facebook status, but here on IQM, you get bored by the WHOLE SONG!)

“Is It My Name?” by Todd Rundgren (lots of crashing drums and guitars are involved here, even some punchy horns)

There is cause and effect
There’s a reason I’m so erect
There’s last night and there’s today
There’s a reason you feel this way
Is it my name?
Don’t miss the boat Barry, don’t miss the plane
I don’t think I can make this scene again
Why don’t you love me?
Is it my name?

All the lies, all the truth,
All the things that I offer you
All the sights, all the sounds
All the times that you turn me down
Is it my name?
My voice goes so high you would think I was gay
But I play my guitar in such a man-cock way
Why don’t you love me?
It is my name?

You only love me for my machine !

“Where In the Hell Did You Go With My Toothbrush?” by The Reverend Horton Heat (a slow blues, unlike the normal frentic Horton psychobilly freakout top speed)

You didn’t leave a bar of soap when you left me.
You didn’t even leave a towel so I could dry my face.
You didn’t even leave a plate for me to eat on.
But you left all my empty beercans all over the place.

You didn’t leave my precious black and white TV set.
You took the Jimi Hendrix poster that was on my door.
You left with my very best friend – our dog Smokey.
But I found all the unpaid bills on the kitchen floor.

And where in the hell did you go with my toothbrush?
And where in the hell did you happen to spend last night?
You didn’t leave a bar of soap when you left me.
And you didn’t even tell me they was turning out the lights.

You didn’t leave my little five dollar alarm clock.
You didn’t even leave a note; I guess it’s all been said.
You didn’t even leave the cushions for the sofa.
And now that I’m used to the couch, you left the bed.

And where in the hell did you go with my toothbrush?
And where in the hell have you been for the last three days?
You didn’t leave a bar of soap when you left me.
And you didn’t stick around to see the teardrops on my face.
