Magnum Live 2005
Magnum - Hit and Run. One of my favourite songs that was first released on Magnums 4th studio album "The Eleventh Hour" in 1983. The Eleventh Hour was seriously underated and only charted a disappointing number 38 in the UK charts. The production of this album caused a lot of tension between the band and Jet Records, following the two-year delay to previous album, Chase the Dragon in 1982 and debut album Kingdom of Madness in 1978. These tensions were further strained when Jet Records denied the band a name producer, leaving them to produce the album themselves. Magnum briefly split up for a while after this effort. Artist Rodney Matthews explains the idea behind the cover artwork. "The Eleventh Hour illustration was mostly the brain child of Magnum's Tony (the hat) Clarkin, a likable 'brummy' of eccentric appearance. He came to my studio where we listened to lyrics and he scribbled out a little sketch indicating the figure on the throne, the group of young children and the industrial wasteland. The aircraft (like ducks on a wall) and the unreasoning shark missiles in their silos where my own contribution. "Tony had joked that his idea for the title of the record had come from his impression of Jet Records who appeared to leave everything until the last minute, though he did explain a deeper significance, one which I think becomes obvious from the artwork. "Many of Clarkin's lyrics show a deep concern for the shortcomings of our civilization and the injustices which occur, although he is not advocating any revolutionary solutions. The changes have to come from each individual." I have no copyright on song or pictures.

álbum: Evolution año: 2011 Lyrics ↓↓↓ Maybe tomorrow your day will come Searching for something, like everyone But while you're sleeping, dream away fast All that you're thinking, lost in the past Well, there's something wrong We've known it too long God bless us all Look what we've done to this place We don't care at all Washing the blame from our face Soon there'll be no one to call Maybe we follow, choose the wrong path Carry on blindly, scared to come last Feel like a stranger in your own room No one can see you shine like a jewel There's no magic verse Will save us from this curse God bless us all People who live in this place Don't care at all Probably won't leave a trace After we've taken the fall The Moon's on the run Making a break for liberty The world's come undone But we don't want to see God bless us all Look what we've done to this place We don't care at all Washing the blame from our face Soon there'll be no one to call God bless us all People who live in this place Don't care at all Probably won't leave a trace After we've taken the fall Bob Catley: Vocals Tony Clarkin: Guitar Harry James: Drums Jimmy Copley: Drums Al Barrow: Bass Mark Stanway: Keyboards
Magnum - The Last Frontier (uk) hard rock (lyrics down) lyrics No peace on Earth yet before the dawn One hundred priests say a prayer In expectation they stand withdrawn And all their promises laid bare Now on a Monday, bright early morning They run for the only train Then every bell that ever rang On England's warm sunny days And every bird that ever sang And every brass band that played The sound of kids on village greens The giant horse caravan The market stalls and steam machines Would stir the heart of every man Between the pages wild flowers were pressed Until one day they'd be found No explanation, they'd all been blessed And then it all came round Time and the jealous eyes will be looking Back to a better place When every door's laid open wide It's not so rich but it's true That anyone can step inside It's been so long overdue This fairytale will draw you near And give you back the age of man A shining star, the last frontier Will take you back where you began Going somewhere I'll keep waiting so long Then every bell that ever rang On England's warm sunny days And every bird that ever sang And every brass band that played The sound of kids on village greens The giant horse caravan The market stalls and steam machines Would stir the heart of every man

Band: Magnum Track: Hit and Run Album: The eleventh hour You're walking the street You're in need of someone's sympathy And someone you meet Helps to pass the time just perfectly 'Cause she takes you by the hand Takes you to the promised land And gives you her love You're drinking alone Shadowed by your own uncertainty But you'd like to be shown Everything you've never dared to see Then she takes you by the hand Takes you to the promised land And gives you her love The damage is done Taking love on the run You can buy your romance So you jump at the chance Hit and run.
An excellent track from their album "The Eleventh Hour". Has a superb intro that you'll love if like harmony guitar work.
