Rocktober Music Fest – 2019 – and other October Oddities

I hope everyone is enjoying all the great music being featured in the Rocktober Music Fest, both on my little blog and the other people participating.  You are visiting them, aren’t you?  Since today is Sunday, we also have the Song Lyric Sunday group.  I’m not into football and THE ASTROS BEAT THE YANKEES (YAY!) so I can spend the day nicely in my studio listening and crafting.

Last night the hubs and I went to a newish for us venue, the San Jose Civic, and saw REO Speedwagon.  I had seen Steely Dan there many years ago with my girlfriend but Bill had never been.  It is another one of the smaller venues (about 2500 seats) so almost any seat is a good one. 

Interestingly, the opening act was called Sir, Please and two of the guys in that band were actually Kevin Cronin’s twin sons.  
After he told us that, I realized there was a little family resemblance.    

I tried to find a song they sang that had anything to do with today’s #SLS prompt of Lean/Sit/Stand and the closest I could get was this one:

Tough Guys
She doesn’t like the tough guys
They think that they can do anything they please
But they’re gonna get a surprise
When she brings them to their knees
‘Cause she doesn’t like the rough guys
They think they can have any girl they choose
They’ve got tricks but my baby got wise
So in case you haven’t heard the news
She doesn’t like the tough guys
She doesn’t like the rough guys
So find some one you own size
‘Cause she’s not afraid of you
She doesn’t like the tough guys
She says that they’ve got brains all where they sit
They think they’re full of fire
She thinks they’re full of shit
She doesn’t like the tough guys
She doesn’t like the rough guys
She’s gonna call your bluff guys
And you better believe it’s true
She don’t like you
She doesn’t like the tough guys
They think that they can do anything they please
But they’re gonna get a surprise
When she brings them to their knees
‘Cause she doesn’t like the rough guys
They think they can have any girl they choose
They’ve got tricks but my baby got wise
So in case you haven’t heard the news
She doesn’t like the tough guys
She doesn’t like the rough guys
So find some one your own size
‘Cause she’s not afraid of you
She doesn’t like the rough guys
She said she heard enough lies
She’s gonna call your bluff guys
And you better believe it’s true
Tough guys tough guys
Ooh get along tough guys
You might has gone forget it
Tough guys
Oh you know you know she love me better
Tough guys tough guys

Here’s one I got last night, “Take It On The Run:”

We have no other concerts scheduled for this year but it was a good one to end the season with.  Happy Sunday!

  2. Janet,

    I don’t remember ‘Tough Guys’. I guess when I think of this group ‘I Can’t Fight This Feeling’ is the first song to come to mind. 🙂

  3. Hi Janet – I agree with Felicia – You have tons of energy and are always doing something fun. I believe that you have seen more live concerts this year than I’ve seen in my lifetime. Embarrassing for me, but true. 😀

      Donna, somehow I feel like I have to make up for lost time because I never went when I was younger. Sad because ticket prices were much cheaper then! We have seen so many people multiple times that I have a feeling our concert days will be slowing down a bit.

  8. Good going Janet with “they’ve got brains all where they sit”. I love your enthusiasm about music and the REO Speedwagon song Tough Guys was nice to hear. I like the Take It On The Run video that you recorded.
