Lyrics:

I’m standing here on the ground 
sky above won’t fall down
See no evil in all direction
Resolution of happiness
Things have been dark for too long

Don’t change for you
Don’t change a thing for me
Don’t change for you
Don’t change a thing for me

I found a love I had lost
It was gone for too long
Hear no evil in all directions
Execution of bitterness
Message received loud and clear

Don’t change for you
Don’t change a thing for me
Don’t change for you
Don’t change a thing for me

I’m standing here on the ground
The sky above won’t fall down
See no evil in all directions
Resolution of happiness
Things have been dark for too long

Don’t change for you
Don’t change a thing for me
Don’t change for you
Don’t change a thing for me

Don’t change for you
Don’t change a thing for me

Don’t change

Don’t change

“If you want me to let this go, well, I am more than willing.

Oh, ‘cause I don’t want to change you. I don’t want to change you. I don’t want to change your mind.”

“Don’t Change That Song” by Faster Pussycat

Top Metal Albums of the 80′s - #43

Before I turn on my lover, gotta turn on my stereo
And it goes in better with a little bit of rock and roll
Now I’m easing to my pleasing by the candlelight
I’m slippin’ on a stack of black wax and then I call it a night

I started groovin’ and she started movin’
And we really started feeling fine
In the midst of consummation she caused me aggravation
When she started messing with that dial

This was the perfect song to introduce Faster Pussycat to the world. It’s got a great and simple guitar riff, lyrics that don’t talk themselves too seriously, and that perfect whiny/nasally vocals of Taime Downe.

Faster Pussycat - Don’t Change That Song ( 1987 )

“Don’t Change That Song” by Faster Pussycat

Before I turn on my lover, gotta turn on my stereo
And it goes in better with a little bit of rock and roll
Now I’m easing to my pleasing by the candlelight
I’m slippin’ on a stack of black wax and then I call it a night

I started groovin’ and she started movin’
And we really started feeling fine
In the midst of consummation she caused me aggravation
When she started messing with that dial

I will post this whenever I get a chance or have an excuse, and a night of posting about the sleazier bands in the L.A. metal scene is exactly the excuse. 

My friends and I used to have the greatest discussions about who would end up being bigger, Faster Pussycat or Guns N’ Roses. The similarities are pretty obvious as they both owe a lot to bluesier bands like Aerosmith. My friend used to say that the battle was really for second because Michael Monroe was poised for a huge comeback. 

Still waiting.
