Today’s Yesterday Track – HAPPY MONDAYS…

Golden oldies to soundtrack the summer of 2017…

Track: ‘Step On’
Band: HAPPY MONDAYS (Manchester)
Album: Pills ‘n’ Thrills and Bellyaches’ (1990)
Note: probably the most notorious rave dopeheads ever with their bloody cool and intoxicating John Kongos cover injected with an ecstatic Madchester vibe and mighty backing vocals by powerful soul voice Rowetta.

You’re twistin’ my melon man, you know you talk so hip man
You’re twistin’ my melon man
Call the cops

Hey rainmaker, come away from that man
You know he’s gonna take away your promised land
Hey good lady he just wants what you got you know
He’ll never stop until he’s taken the lot

Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
Don’t you know he can make you forget you’re a man
Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
Don’t you know he can make you forget you’re the man
You’re the man

You’re twistin’ my melon man, you speak so hip

Hey rainmaker he got golden plans I tell you
You’ll make a stranger in your own land
Hey good lady he’s got God on his side
He got a double tongue
You never think he would lie

(Oh he lied, oooh he’s twistin’ my melon man
(Oh he lied, oooh he’s twistin’ my melon man)

Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
Don’t you know he can make you forget you’re a man
Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
Don’t you know he can make you forget you’re the man
You’re the man

He’s gonna step on you again, he’s gonna step on you
He’s gonna step on you again, he’s gonna step on you

Hey rainmaker, come away from that man
You know he’s gonna take away your promised land
Hey good lady he’s got God on his side
He got a double tongue
You never think he would lie

Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
Don’t you know he can make you forget you’re a man
Gonna stamp out your fire, he can change your desire
Don’t you know he can make you forget you’re the man
You’re the man

You’re twistin’ my melon man, you know you talk so hip man
You’re twistin’ my melon man

He’s gonna step on you again, he’s gonna step on you
He’s gonna step on you again, he’s gonna step on you
