Here’s another tasty tune for your enjoyment. Night Caller started out as just one song. During the writing of the lyrics, the idea of a sequel came up and for some reason we thought it sounded like a good idea. For reasons lost in the mists of time, that good idea some how became a great idea, and it was decided that we would write 6, no 10, NO 12 SONGS! in the same story arc.
Night Caller was still the first one and most likely the best. I think in the final count, we recorded 3 songs and had ‘rough’ recordings for 3 more. They might eventually make their appearance.
Night Caller Lyrics
[Verse] Dim the lights Late at night - at WKRM When the red light blinks He flips to line one To catch her call Put her onto the air He can tell from the purr of her voice She's got curves That can make lines swerve By flashing her eyes Which he hears burn like White hot flares You could say he's got some pretty good ears But you don't need dolby crystal clear to hear A death certificate scream No, tonight the airwaves are tingling With another sordid affair [Chorus] There's a killer on the loose There's a psycho on the move There's a prowler at the window pane Peering at you through the sheets of rain [Verse] There's a voice on the wire Disembodied and somebody Has a damsel with a request Then the phone goes dead He's out the door But not before He puts on a 60 minute superset You've gotta think about these things To be the best DJ This side of San Andreas Answering what he says are siren rings For late night callers - Callers [Chorus] There's a killer on the loose There's a psycho on the move There's a prowler at the window pane Peering at you through the sheets of rain [Lead Vocal] [Backup Vocals] Night Caller Get back Night Caller Get back Watch your back Get back Jack Night Caller Get back Jack Better get back Jack Get back Night Caller Get back Night Caller Get back Jack (Repeat) (Repeat and breathe into mic)
