Je viens de tomber sur ce morceau qui date de 1973 ! Et franchement, je ne sais pas si je préfère la musique ou ce clip délicieusement vintage qui nous montre les années 70 à New York. C’est un morceau suffisamment rythmé pour nous donner un tempo sur lequel passer cette première journée de la semaine. Et je m’imagine déjà avec ce refrain qui me trotte en tête. Et ce n’est pas pour me déplaire.

Single written and released in 1973. Also on the album « Ghost Writer » (A & M Records, 1977) and reissued on the album « I’m Alive » (Universal International, 2006).

Here is what Garland says about this song :

Wild in the Streets is my pride and joy. I consider it my « first » Rock ‘n’ Roll record, written and released in 1973, and recorded with Dr. John and his band, with Alan Freedman, Michael Brecker, David Sanborn, David Spinozza, David Peel, Produced by Roy Cicala…………..
All the Best,

Paroles/Lyrics :

In the heat of the summer
Better call up the plumber
And turn on the street pump
To cool me off
With your newspaper writers
And your big crime fighters
You still need a drugstore
To cure my cough

Running wild in the streets

We got a gang called Shady
And a midnight lady
And two transvestites
To beat the band
You better not touch us
You best believe us
Your teenage Johnny’s
Gonna be a man

Runnin’ wild in the streets

Mrs. America
Tell me how is your favorite son
Do you really care
What he has done

Runnin’ wild in the streets
