The Joker - Steve Miller Band Lyrics

Don’t know about peach thing, “giggle”, but my muses picked this out and I love this song…so I’m good:)<3<3<3 xoxoxo

Marauders Music Headcanons

These headcanons are based purely on the Marauders Era (1960′s-1970′s) and the popular music of that time.


It probably wouldn’t be a huge shocker if Walburga forced Sirius and Regulus to listen to some classical music (by Wizard musicians of course; there would be none of that muggle, Mozart, garbage in 12 Grimmauld Place thanks) So Sirius grows up listening to lyric-less or operatic music that makes him want to gouge his ears out with a goddamned fork. However, after going to Hogwarts and becoming acquainted with muggle-born students, he has a queue of songs written down on at least three feet of parchment. He come to love music with a passion (particularly rock and roll). There are nights where James has been woken up by Sirius singing in his sleep. It’s Sirius’ dream to be able to play the guitar after listening to the amazing guitar solo played between Joe Walsh and Don Felder in Hotel California. One Christmas, Mooney, Prongs and Wormtail pool their money together to get Sirius an acoustic guitar. For the first couple of weeks, it was the worst mistakes of their lives- he won’t stop practicing in his free time, and as any beginner, he isn’t the best. But eventually, he builds up his skill as a guitarist as well as calluses on his fingers from strumming and holding down the cords. FAVORITE SONGS: The Joker (Steve Miller Band); Another Brick in the Wall Part 2 (Pink Floyd); The House of the Rising Sun (The Animals); Fortunate Son (Creedence Clearwater Revival); (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction (The Rolling Stones); While My Guitar Gently Weeps (The Beatles); Oh Pretty Woman (Roy Orbison); Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (The Beatles); TNT (ACDC); Sweet Emotion (Aerosmith); Hotel California (Eagles); Dream On (Aerosmith); Highway To Hell (ACDC); Burnin’ For You (Blue Oyster Cult); Brandy (Looking Glass)

James grows up listening to regular wizard bands. I feel like James had a very eclectic taste in music, so he’ll listen to just about anything and thoroughly enjoy it. He never really listened to muggle bands just because I don’t think neither he or his parents were really exposed to them (especially Euphemia and Fleamont being as old as they were). Like Sirius, he became exposed to modern muggle music upon entering Hogwarts. He was even more compelled to listen to muggle bands when Lily mentioned her favorite band being Fleetwood Mac. James is one of those guys where, when he really;enjoys a song, he’ll play it on repeat until he’s sick of it and goes to find something new to listen to. James favors more lively music that he can dance to. Exerting mental and physical energy into dancing is a favorite of his. When he’s dating Lily, he listens to “Shining Star” by Earth, Wind and Fire for the first time, and he tells her he wants to go to a disco. FAVORITE SONGS: Mr. Blue Sky (Electric Light Orchestra); Dancing Queen (ABBA); Come and Get Your Love (Redbone); Happy Together (The Turtles); My Girl (The Temptations); The Lion Sleeps Tonight (The Tokens); I Heard it Through the Grapevine (Marvin Gaye); YMCA (Village People); Barracuda (Heart); Carry on Wayward Son (Kansas); I Want You To Want Me (Cheap Trick); Tiny Dancer (Elton John); Don’t Bring me Down (Electric Light Orchestra); Strange Magic (Electric Light Orchestra); Turn To Stone (Electric Light Orchestra)

Remus, because his mother was a muggle, was exposed to different kinds of muggle music. Hope (Remus’ mother) would listen to ballads with her son, one of their favorites being “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac. He and his mother would also listen to the Beatles, of course. “Let It Be” was his favorite song of the Beatles. While he enjoyed listening to music, he definitely wasn’t as passionate/obsessed about it as Sirius was. The kind of music he listened to was mostly folk rock, more mellow jams he could put at a low volume and enjoy as he would make tea, or curl up with a book and a bar of chocolate. Remus appreciated music that could calm him and make him feel more comfortable instead of riled up and excitable. FAVORITE SONGS: Landslide (Fleetwood Mac); Mrs. Robinson (Simon & Garfunkel); Stand by Me (Ben E. King); The Sound of Silence (Simon & Garfunkel); American Pie (Don McLean); You’re So Vain (Carly Simon); A Horse With No Name (America); Stuck in the Middle With You (Stealers Wheel); Have You Ever Seen the Rain (Creedence Clearwater); Stairway to Heaven (Led Zepplin); Desperado (Eagles); Take It To The Limit (Eagles); Lean On Me (Bill Withers); Piano Man (Billy Joel); Me and Julio Down By The Schoolyard (Paul Simon) 

Peter probably liked the Bee Gees.

“Sweet Caroline” by Neil Diamond and “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen are the shared favorites among the Marauders.


On this day in music history: May 14, 1976 - “Fly Like An Eagle”, the ninth album by The Steve Miller Band is released. Produced by Steve Miller, it is recorded at CBS Studios in San Francisco, CA from Late 1975 - Early 1976. Recording with varying degrees of success since their debut album “Children Of The Future”, The Steve Miller Band finally have their major breakthrough in late 1973 with “The Joker”. Miller takes a nearly two year hiatus from recording after the departures of drummer John King and keyboardist Dick Thompson. They are replaced by Gary Mallaber who as both a drummer and keyboard player becomes a key member of the new line up. Before the sessions begin in late 1975, Steve Miller writes enough material for not one but two albums. Once in the studio, Miller, Mallaber and bassist Lonnie Turner are supported by John McFee (dobro), Les Dudek, Curley Cooke (guitar), Joachim Young (organ), Kenny Johnson (drums), Charles Calamise (bass), and Chicago blues legend James Cotton (harmonica). The sessions yield more than two dozen songs. Initially, Miller intends for them to be released as a double album, but is convinced by Capitol to choose the best twelve songs for a single LP, and save the rest. The title track “Fly Like A Eagle” (#2 Pop) is actually written years prior to the release of “The Joker” album. The song’s opening guitar riff has its origins in the song “My Dark Hour” from the “Brave New World” album, that also features Paul McCartney (credited as “Paul Ramon”) on bass, guitar and drums. Miller re-tools the song from how it was originally performed, giving it a more funky, syncopated feel, drawing inspiration from War’s “Slippin’ Into Darkness”. Once released, it quickly becomes the best selling studio album of Miller’s career. It spins off three singles including “Take The Money And Run” (#11 Pop) and “Rock'N Me” (#1 Pop). Though not issued as singles, the tracks “Serenade”, “Dance, Dance, Dance” and “Wild Mountain Honey” become rock radio staples and firm fan favorites. “Fly Like An Eagle” is remixed into quadraphonic stereo and is released on 8-Track tape. Also a favorite album of audiophiles, the original stereo mix is released as a half-speed mastered LP by Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab in 1979. Originally released on CD in 1987, it is remastered and reissued in 1999 on CD and limited edition vinyl. In 2001, DTS Entertainment issues a DVD-A disc featuring the original quadraphonic stereo mix. For its 30th anniversary in 2006, Capitol issues a newly remastered edition of “Eagle” with three additional live bonus tracks, and a bonus DVD with the contents of disc one in 5.1 surround sound. And in October of 2016, the album is released on vinyl again as part of an extensive reissue program, to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Capitol Records. “Fly Like An Eagle” peaks at number three on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified 4x Platinum in the US by the RIAA.

HCS of Ikuma teaching Hide how to play guitar belong to @hidewari and @gifti3 

Ikuma’s home is crisp and cozy with a trace of honeyed almond oil in the air. For a moment Hide wonders if Ikuma chooses the scent for his incense because he knows it’s Hide’s favorite. Ikuma has a habit of prioritizing Hide’s needs above his. It’s endearing and it’s not something Hide is used to.

“And this-” Ikuma pushes open a door littered with posters of song lyrics, “-is my studio. It’s small and a little bit snug but you might step on my old iPods so just watch your steps,” Ikuma ends his sentence with a wink. He ushers the blond inside and closes the door behind them.
