Scream Loud - The Quests

If you really want me, yeah,
Scream Loud! Scream Loud!

Or I won't hear you,
I'll never know you're there.
I'll never realize that you may
really care.

And so I'll say to you -
If you really want me, yeah,
Scream Loud! Scream Loud!

For the words that you say
may not come into my heart.
I'll never know if we should
really part.

And so before I go -
If you really want me, yeah,
Scream Loud! Scream Loud!

[guitar break]

'Cuz if you really want me,
tell the world you do!
I want them all to know
our love can be true.

And so before I go -
If you really want me, yeah,
Scream Loud! Scream Loud!

Or I won't hear you,
I'll never know you're there.
I'll never realize that you may
really care.

And so I'll say to you -
If you really want me, yeah,
Scream Loud! Scream Loud!
Scream Loud! Scream Loud!

I Want You - Tony and Terri

Hey hey hey girl, take a look at me.
It's really hard I know, since you never saw me before.

You know what I want, I want you!

That don't matter none, when you're young.
What do you expect me to do?
Get up and walk out with you?

You know what I want, I want you!

Maybe you oughtta walk away.
(Why should I go, why can't I stay, no matter what the people say!)
Maybe you oughtta walk away.
(Why let 'em live your life for you, come and do what you wanna do with me!)

Hey hey hey girl, you better start livin', yeah.
Its time you had some thoughts of your own.
Life's too short, the red tape's too long.

You don't have to be like everybody else, no!
I never met anyone like you!
And I'm tired of doin' everything other people do.

You know what I want, babe, I want you!

I'm glad I listened to what you say!
(Why should I go, why can't I stay, no matter what the people say!)
I'm glad I listened to what you say!
(Why let 'em live your life for you, come and do what you wanna do with me!)

I want you!!!!
Oh I need need you!
I want you!!!!
And I love you too!
I want you!!!!
And I'll be with you!
I want you!!!!
Oh I want you!

Someday - The Resumes

Hey girl I wanna talk to you,
I got something to say.
I'm gonna be leavin' you,
I may be back someday.

I'll do what I wanna do,
I'll find a way,
to keep on lovin' you,
as I do today, as I do today, today, today!

I've gotta keep moving on,
don't ask me where.
I'm travellin' all alone,
you must beware.

Lord no, I gotta be gone,
don't really care.
I'll stop in one of those towns where
there's time to spare, there's time to spare, to spare, to spare!

[guitar break]

I've cheated I've run around
looking for some pay.
I haven't any friends in town
so I'll be on my way, my way, my way.

I'll stay in a cheap motel
and earn my pay.
And when I'll pay my bill
I'll be on my way.

All that will pay my friend
If I find a way.
Divert the spell my friend
so I'll get it right some day, some day, some day!

Painted Air - Remaining Few

Here I lie on my deathbed,
recalling things said,
as my world slips away.

A man stands over me,
one final plea,
though I disagree!


Cars, daytime and light,
running red light.
Other drivers won't yield.

People stand without sound,
tears thouch the ground,
and soon dry away!

The Eleventh Story

The Eleventh Story is a 60s Garage influenced band out of Virginia with a new album available at CD Baby called "Outland Road". The band consists of Tom Haun on guitars and vocals, and Todd Rosedale on bass. They present 7 songs on this CD which has Garage, Blues and Psychedelic influences.

"Snake Doctor" brings to mind the 60s pop rock of Creedence Clearwater Revival (CCR). "One Good Reason" is a slower blues/psyche number. "Our Time Is Now" is one of my favorite tracks. It is a Garage Rocker with a Psychedelic feel. The guitar riff is cool and Tom's vocals are trippy yet powerful. I also like "That's What I'm Here For" which is another obviously 60s Garage influenced tune. It has a light breezy feel, nice Garage pop tune! "And For Today" gets a little more gritty, and stays in a slow groove. "Out To The Highway" picks up the pace, it rocks and has tasty fuzz lead guitarwork! "Tsunami" ends the set. It's another Garage Rocker with lead fuzz.

In general, Tom's vocals are excellent and the guitar work is solid. I did notice that there is the occasional loss of sync among the instruments, and the songs seem to end abruptly. But this is a very nice Garage CD that I would recommend to all Garage Rockers!

The Good Rats, and Kars4Kids

I grew up on Long Island in the 70s, so naturally I saw The Good Rats play around town many times. I saw them at the local clubs, I saw them at Eisenhower Park, and I saw them play with The Ramones at the Nassau Coliseum. Everyone who grew up in the NY area knows The Good Rats! They were a hard rocking guitar based band whose songs had excellent hooks. My two favorite Rats tunes are - "Reason To Kill" and "Writing The Pages." When I got this email recently, I knew I had to pass it along to you all!


Kars4Kids Launches Jingle Contest with Spokesman Peppi Marchello of The Good Rats

Classic Rock Hall of Famer Jumpstarts National Car Donation YouTube-Based Contest

Lakewood, NJ—July 27, 2009—Kars4Kids, the national car donation program best known for its persistent "1-8-7-7-Kars-for-Kids" jingle, opened the doors this morning to contestants who want to perform, recreate or otherwise spoof their well-known jingle. The contest was launched simultaneously at the charity organization's website and its YouTube channel with a video--the first of three in a series--from famed rock-and-roll songwriter Peppi Marchello and his band The Good Rats.

"While Kars4Kids is a wonderful organization, we know our jingle can make some people a little crazy," said Clifford Meth, VP of Communications. "It's no different than Burger King's 'Have It Your Way' campaign of the 70s or some of the other classic commercials--our jingle gets inside people's heads and sometimes they can't get it out. So we thought we'd give the thousands of people who write about our jingle a chance to change it… or spoof it… or recreate it. And who better to kick that off than Peppi Marchello, one of the very best songwriters and rock-and-roll showmen of the 1970s."

Kars4kids is giving away prizes from Fender Stratocasters to gaming and home theatre systems. While the organization may not change their jingle any time soon, they believe this contest will be fun for everyone.

"Asking me to be spokesman for a national charity? Now that’s a gutsy move," says Marchello, whose band first debuted on Warner Brothers Records in 1969 and has sold more than one million albums. "When we were playing the Uncle Floyd Show or opening for The Grateful Dead, we must've gone through six dozen vehicles. If Kars4Kids had been around, I'd have known what to do with them but instead I'm still getting notices for 30-year-old parking tickets!"

In addition to writing for and fronting The Good Rats, Marchello also produced a number of other artists including Fiona Flanagan (Atlantic Records) and scored Demi Moore's film "No Small Affair" (1984)

"This contest isn't just for musicians or people good with a video camera," notes Meth. "Anyone with a little creativity will have a chance of winning." Meth noted that other professional bands and entertainers will be popping up at the contest site, including J.R. (formerly of the punk-horror band Rosemary's Babies) and Mark Radice, the Emmy-nominated writer for such shows as "Sesame Street."

Kars4Kids is a national charity operating in 49 states. For more information on the contest, visit www.kars4kids.org/contest
