#SLS ~ 8/15/21

Jim prompts with Danger, Fear, Horror, Nightmare, Terror. Oh the places we could go! I picked what I believe to be a classic. Not sure if we’ll have multiples but I’m tossing this song out there regardless. I’m feeling a 70s vibe. I did find an abridged version to stay within my own self imposed rule of under 5 minutes. Damn if that guitar solo doesn’t get you moving, not sure what will.

Without further ado, (Don’t Fear) The Reaper by American band Blue Oyster Cult. Song Writer:  Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser who wrote this while imagining an untimely death for himself. Thank goodness he’s still with us.

All our times have come
Here but now they’re gone
Seasons don’t fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain
We can be like they are

Come on, baby (don’t fear the reaper)
Baby, take my hand (don’t fear the reaper)
We’ll be able to fly (don’t fear the reaper)
Baby, I’m your man

La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la

Valentine is done
Here but now they’re gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity (Romeo and Juliet)
40, 000 men and women everyday (like Romeo and Juliet)
40, 000 men and women everyday (redefine happiness)
Another 40, 000 coming everyday (we can be like they are)

Come on, baby (don’t fear the reaper)
Baby, take my hand (don’t fear the reaper)
We’ll be able to fly (don’t fear the reaper)
Baby, I’m your man

La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la

Love of two is one
Here but now they’re gone
Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear she couldn’t go on

Then the door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew and then disappeared
The curtains flew and then he appeared
Saying don’t be afraid

Come on, baby (and she had no fear)
And she ran to him (then they started to fly)
They looked backward and said goodbye (she had become like they are)
She had taken his hand (she had become like they are)
Come on, baby (don’t fear the reaper)

  1. Super song! I’ve always liked it. Actually I had this one picked out too, but saw you and several others had already posted it, so picked another one. I love hearing this one. πŸ™‚
