I Hear You Knockin'
Dave Edmunds

- Peak Position #4 on 71
- This was also a hit by Gale Storm
Peak position #2 on 55


You went away and left me long time ago
And now you're knocking on my door

I hear you knocking
But you can't come in

I hear you knocking
Go back where you've been

I begged you not to go but you said goodbye
And now you're telling me all your lies

I hear you knocking
But you can't come in

I hear you knocking
Go back where you've been

Ahhh yeah
Let me hear it
Ohhooo woo

OOhh

You better get back to your use-to-be
'cause your kind of love ain't good to me

I hear you knocking
But you can't come in

I hear you knocking
Go back where you've been

I told you way back in 52
That I would never go with you

I hear you knocking
But you can't come in

I hear you knocking
Go back where you've been

Yeah
Awwhoooo

Ron,

I think you were having trouble finding it because the first word is "Beth", not babe:

Beth, I hear you callin'
But I can't come home right now.
Me and the boys are playin' -
And we just can't find the sound.


Just a few more hours -
And I'll be right home to you.
I think I hear them callin'
Oh, Beth what can I do?
Beth, what can I do?


You say you feel so empty -
That our house just ain't a home.
And I'm always somewhere else,
And you're always there alone.


Just a few more hours -
And I'll be right home to you.
I think I hear them callin'
Oh, Beth what can I do?
Beth, what can I do?


Beth, I know you're lonely -
And I hope you'll be alright -
'Cause me and the boys will be playin'
All night...


The group was KISS. :)

Gary

Every so often I'll read something that gives me hope that great music will become as popular as bad music. One such blurb today:

Time After Time: More than four years after her death, Eva Cassidy is the subject of a cover feature in Billboard magazine. The darling of the Washington area music circuit, Cassidy died of cancer in 1996 at age 33, having released only one solo recording, "Live at Blues Alley," but her popularity has continued to grow with several posthumous albums.

The latest Cassidy collection, "Time After Time," hit No. 27 on Billboard's independent albums chart. And BBC listeners recently voted her rendition of "Over the Rainbow" one of the 100 most significant recordings of the 20th century . . .

Dennis - If you have RoadRunner, you can download any one of a number of her tunes in just a couple minutes. She's pretty well represented on napster. Or you might be able to hear a couple sound bites on this NPR special that was done on her a couple weeks ago (for some reason, I'm having problems with RealAudio, so I have no idea what it sounds like):

Zak,

Speaking of that song, I happened to be watching a program a few weeks back (I believe it was a telethon of some sort for the United Negro College Fund) that featured many soul artists of the last 40 years. Anyway, Patti LaBelle did her rendition of "Over the Rainbow" and although I've always enjoyed her style, I must say there were times it was very hard to know what she was singing. It reminded me of Aretha's rendition of our National Anthem at the '68 Democratic convention - in case you don't remember, it was very controversial (of course, what wasn't at that event).

I guess my point is this - I've always loved soul music but that doesn't mean every song is conducive to that particular style - "Over the Rainbow" would be one such song.

Gary - Just downloaded her version and agree with you. IMO, "Over the Rainbow" is best served with a subtle interpretation. Hers is a bit too bombastic and overarranged. I think you'd find Eva Cassidy's version far preferable. And if you like Louis Armstrong's "What a Wonderful World", you should give her cover a listen - made a bit more poignant in that it was the last song she sang in public just a couple days before dying of cancer at the age of 33.

dennis,

"mr.mark must have been asleep at the wheel?"

i was definitely around for the 50 minutes that the 10k post sat here waiting to be claimed. you offer as good an explanation as any for my failure to grub the grub. <g3>

i think a question about the 10,000 maniacs might have been a nice touch, don't you agree? or maybe this link

Zak,

I love that description - it really says it all. I purchased one of her albums a long time ago strictly for the duet she did with Michael McDonald of the Doobie Brothers, "On My Own". That particular # is a great listen but I always thought much of the rest was just a bit too much "screaming". From now on, I will describe it as being too "bombastic".

Yes, I do like that word. ;)

Gary
