An explosive Rock track with Horns about the bitter sweet experience of being part of 1980s London Club life and the power of perseverance.

lyrics

Whiskey-A-Go-Go

Verse 1
It was one o'clock in the mornin'
Under a neon Soho sign
Some people say those streets are paved with gold
Some say it's rain that makes them shine

Verse 2
I was coming down from the bandstand
And the audience applause
Although it was so many years ago
It seems the curtain never falls

PreChorus
'cos I can hear the banging of the drum still ringing in my ear

Chorus
Stepping out from the Whiskey-A-Go-Go
Out into the bitter sweet air
I couldn't tell where my footsteps were going
I only know I'm still getting there

Stepping out from the Whiskey-A-Go-Go
Out into the shadow it cast
I didn't know where those four winds were blowing
But I knew that the memory would last
And the memory still lasts

Verse 3
Now it's one o'clock in the morning
And my glass is all drunk dry
I fill my songs with heady words
And try to reach that same old high

PreChorus
'cos I still hear the crashing of the cymbals ringing in my ear

Chorus

Bridge
Well time’s moved on and nothing’s changed
‘cos the music always kept me sane
There’s some you win and some you lose
I'm standin' on this stage once again and singin’ out these blues

Chorus (half tacet)

Chorus
