Gonna Do Some Rockin'

Tags: 

Demo: 

Collaborators: 

Liner Notes: 

Wonderful lyrics by @wyatt made me want to do some rockin'. I used Mickey and Sylvia's Love is Strange as a model for the music and then added some fake Jamaican accent. It seemed like a good idea. Smile

Lyrics: 

Gonna do some rockin'
gonna do some rollin
Roll this land from sea to sea
Gonna do some rockin'
gonna do some rollin
Why don't you roll along with me

Do some midnight howlin.
A little caterwaulin
See how far, see how far
We can jump without falln'

Gonna do some rockin'
gonna do some rollin
Roll this land from sea to sea
Gonna do some rockin'
gonna do some rollin
Why don't you roll along with me

Laying on some beaches
With a tropic moon a beamin'
Make a little love, make a little love
We don't need a reason

Gonna do some rockin'
gonna do some rollin
Roll this land from sea to sea
Gonna do some rockin'
gonna do some rollin
Why don't you roll along with me

( solo )

Picking fruits of passion
I hear they're everlastin'
In a cozy nook, in a cozy nook
We'll build a little cabin

Gonna do some rockin'
gonna do some rollin
Roll this land from sea to sea
Gonna do some rockin'
gonna do some rollin
Why don't you roll along with me

Yes! Some wonderful classic rock and roll sound! I'm transported to the late 1950s and early 1960s summer beach party concert! Surfs up! Let's dance! Fantastic groove and so much fun! Love your vocals! Great inflection and accent!

Yeah, this is a dance tune! I can just see the 60's swimsuits and that old oily stuff to make you "tan". Wonderful collab you two! Smile

Well, I just went and listened to "Love Is Strange" - haven't heard that great song in a while!
Love that guitar sound! Such party-time fun to the vocal, too.
Cool lyrics, as you'd expect from Wy. It's a common title, but the rhymes and word choices are original and clever.
Amazing collab!

Great guitar sound ... so very 60s ... tiki huts and beaches ... and the vocals are brimming with fun and good humor. The way you sang "Gonna do some rockin'/gonna do some rollin" brought a huge smile to my face. That guitar solo perfectly replicates the feel of those old records. A winner!

This is so much fun! Wy's lyrics lend themselves to a catchy tune, which Klaus picks up on and delivers with flair! The lyrics, music and vocal take us for a ride...oh no, wait...rollin'! A happy song...smiles all around!

Very classic rock, but with a self aware sense of humor. I was bopping my head as soon as it started. I love the surfy guitar solos. Nice touch with the vocal inflection additions in the performance.
