1000 SONGS - DAY 238 SONG # 269

DAY 238: A Rock'n Roll Heart

Rock & Roll Heart is one of the albums by Lou Reed I once owned and do not have in stock anymore (in contradistiction to Sally Can't Dance or Transformer and some others). I do remember exactly two tunes from that one, a reason to have them listed among my 1000 songs of importance to me. First one is the track that gave its name to the album, the lyrics being slightly remininscent of Sam Cooke's Wonderful World:




I don't like opera and I don't like ballet
And new wave french movies, they just drive me away
I guess I'm just dumb, 'cause I knows I ain't smart
But deep down inside, I got a rock 'n' roll heart
Yeah-yeah-yeah, deep down inside I got a rock 'n' roll heart

Oh, rock 'n' roll heart
Lookin' for a good time
Just a rock 'n' roll heart, roll heart, roll heart
Lookin' for a good time

I don't like messages or something meant to say
And I wish people like that would just go away
I guess I'm just dumb, 'cause I know I'm not smart
But deep down inside, I got a rock 'n' roll heart
Yeah-yeah-yeah, deep down inside I got a rock 'n' roll heart

Yeah, rock 'n' roll heart
Searchin' for a good time

Just a rock 'n' roll heart, roll heart, roll heart
Lookin' for a good time

The other one is Vicious Circle:



And for the sake of completeness, let's add Sam's Wonderful World to that one:
