Scritta da Alan Gorrie, Ray Singer, Simon Napier-Bell (fonte: Discogs)
Singolo dall'album "Fresh Today"

Fresh Today
Fresh Today



"Fresh weren't actually a real band, but the brainchild of producers Ray Singer and Simon Napier-Bell, producers responsible for a lot of 60's hits in Britain. The musicians listed were Roger Chantler, drums Kevin Francis, bass and Bob Gorman, guitar. There were only two albums issued by this "group": Fresh Out Of Borstal and Fresh Today. And then nothing.

So Stoned In Saigon was an anti-war anthem that came out just around the time anti-war sentiment was at a high. In 1970 we had the invasion Cambodia and the shootings at Kent State and word back in the states was drug use was rampant in Vietnam."

Gordonskene su croocks and liars
The jungle is a live place
Hell
Except it's got a yellow face
Well
Well

Stoned in Saigon
The gooks are dying easy
A mother loving son
A stoned success of all events
I pass the test but do not rest
I'm feeling kind of queasy

The Sergeant uses cocaine
Nice
He's out of sight and out of mind
Twice
Twice

Stoned in Saigon
The gooks are damn amazing
Lying in a song
While we can laugh about the past
While rednecks bring our photographs
Without grass I think we'd all go crazy

The company's good here
Kind
And mescaline's good out here
Fine
Fine

Stoned in Saigon
The gooks are dying easy
A mother loving son

Stoned in Saigon
The gooks are getting lazy
Lying in a song

Stoned in Saigon
The gooks are dying easy
A mother loving son

Stoned in Saigon
The gooks are getting lazy
lying in a song

Stoned in Saigon
The gooks are dying easy

Posso dire che la nuova funzione di incorporazione dei link non mi piace proprio?

Aggiunge solo immagini e contenuti parziali che non possono anche non c'entrare nulla con l'intenzione del contributore, come in questo caso...

Cosa ne pensa il uebmastro?

Penso che bisogna usarla quando serve cioè per mettere l'anteprima di un articolo che si vuole segnalare, per citare semplicemente la fonte come qui continuerei a usare un semplice link. Basta non cliccare sul bottone per trasformare il link in anteprima e usare la formattazione vecchio stile. Ho rimesso un normale link anche qui.
