The main focus on my channel is on Roxy Music/Bryan Ferry and The Beatles, but I also cover other songs that take my fancy.
Their first single in 1972.
"Virginia Plain" was a highly innovative single which made a big impression in 1972 and established the starting point of Roxy Music's career.
Make me a deal and make it straight
All signed and sealed, I'll take it
To Robert E. Lee I'll show it
I hope and pray he don't blow it 'cause
We've been around a long time
Just try try try try tryin' to make make the big time
Take me on a roller coaster
Take me for an airplane ride
Take me for a six day wonder
But don't you throw don't you throw my pride aside besides
What's real and make believe?
Baby Jane's in Acapulco
We're all flying down to Rio
Throw me a line I'm sinking fast
Clutching at straws can't make it
Havana sound we're trying
Hard edge the hipster jiving
Last picture shows down the drive in
You're so sheer you're so chic
Teenage rebel of the week
Flavours of the mountain streamline
Midnight blue casino floors
Dance the cha cha through till sunrise
Opens up exclusive doors oh wow!
Just like flamingoes look the same
So me and you, just we two
Got to reach for something new
Far beyond the pale horizon
Some place near the desert strand
And where my Studebaker takes me
That's where I'll make my stand but wait
Can't you see that Holzer mane?
What's her name, Virginia Plain?
