The Faces ~ Silicone Grown



There is no way I was gonna leave Silicone Grown out of my series of all time favorite songs.  It is another song by The Faces, written by Rod Stewart and Ron Wood . . . lead vocals by Rod Stewart.  One of the most awesome songs ever!

I found an interesting blog while researching for the two posts and videos on The Faces that fans of the group will enjoy . . . http://britrockbythebay.blogspot.com/2010/05/faces-october-1973.html . . . check it out!

Silicone Grown comes from the album Ooh LaLa, in my opinion, the best of their four albums.  Actually, with the exception of Rod Stewart's album Never A Dull Moment, these were the best songs of his career.  At least they are my favorites.

Here is another video I created

 for one of my favorite songs ever ~



Silicone Grown | The Faces
Lyrics

written by 
Rod Stewart and Ron Wood


Wait a minute honey
I don't think the joke's too funny
I stayed up all night
Checking out the doctor's guide

Wait a minute honey
Stop pretending you're a bunny
Well I might've guessed
You been to see a specialist.

I remember you said
That we gotta keep abreast of time
But obviously you don't know where to draw the line
Don't try and tell me it's a-what you been eating
Since when have you been 44 around the (get on with the song)

At the Moulin Rouge tell you baby we could knock 'em dead
Just sign right here all I need is 10%.
Now you make me feel like a pimp in the White House
For a senator's daughter you're stealing all the headline news

Oh shake me, shake me, shake me up all night long
We all need a laugh and I guess you're just the one
You got more front than the Hague Museum
Oh home grown silicone you really got the best of me

Never heard this one before. Great song. They both look so young in those pictures. Good job with the video.

Would you like to support Akira Toriyama's fundraising for Japan?
