Roxy Music - Why Do You Think I'm A Funky Chick? album
Artist Title (Format). Why Do You Think I'm A Funky Chick ? (2xLP, Unofficial).
Roxy Music guitarist Phil Manzanera said singer Bryan Ferry was the main reason the band abandoned an album that was to include original member Brian Eno in 2011. The group has been inactive since then, making it probable that 1982’s Avalon remains Roxy Music's final LP. There was that we attempted to do about six or seven years ago, Manzanera told Billboard in a new interview. We went into the studio with Brian Eno and with Chris Thomas, our original producer, and we sort of did about 15 or 16 tracks
Avalon was Roxy Music's last album and their biggest seller. The band started out as more of a glam rock outfit, but they later turned to melancholy pop, with this song being the apotheosis of that sound. Rubylake from CanadaI'm with Camille on this one, as i think the lyrics are speaking about finding love so perfect that there was nothing more to be found. More than this, there is nothing. Romantic rock and roll :) Camille from Toronto, OhI'm more familiar with the 10,000 Maniacs version and prefer it to the one by Roxy Music. I wonder to know what thing motived Ferry to create so beaut I just love this lush song. Charlotte from Santa Barbara, CaMike, let it go.
Roxy Music kicked off their masterly For Your Pleasure album with the ebullient Do the Strand, a song about a made-up dance craze that tipped a chapeau to the fashionable London thoroughfare of the same name. Ferry’s words are daringly dandyish and frivolous, as he throws references aplenty from La Goulue (the French Can-can dancer) to Nijinsky (the Russian ballet dancer), artworks such as Guernica and the Mona Lisa, and even a witty play on words involving King Louis XVI ( Louis Seize he prefer laissez-faire le Strand ).
Roxy Music have been completely inactive for over three-and-a-half years, and guitarist Phil Manzanera says this break is probably going to last forever. I don’t think we’re going to do any more shows, he says. I think our job is done. When we stopped touring in 2011, Andy and I looked at each other and said, ‘Our job is done here. There hasn’t been a new Roxy Music album since 1982’s Avalon, but the group reformed in 2001 and have toured sporadically ever since. I’m very excited about it. There’s also Bryan Ferry’s ongoing solo tour, where he often plays more than a dozen Roxy Music songs a night. Also, Manzanera may be on the road himself in the near future. The guitarist, who co-produced Pink Floyd’s new album The Endless River, plays in the solo band of David Gilmour, who’s planning a tour when he finishes his next album. If he wants me on that tour, says Manzanera.
Funky, funky but chic Funky, funky but chic. I get down in any neighborhood I swear that my friends will take me The people that are out itch and ditch I swear they gonna break me. Yeah, take me I fly just to get downtown, I swear where everybody's crazy And when I fly on down, next street them girls stop actin' lazy And I said. Baby Tell Me What I'm On lyrics.

Album For Your Pleasure (1973). Label Island Records. Thereґs a new sensation A fabulous creation A danceable solution To teenage revolution Do the strand love When you feel love Itґs the new way Thatґs why we say Do the strand Do it on the tables Quaglinoґs place or mabelґs Slow and gentle Sentimental All styles served here Louis seize he prefer Laissez-faire le strand Tired of the tango Fed up. with fandango Dance on moonbeams Slide on rainbows In furs or blue jeans You know what I mean Do the strand. Had your fill of quadrilles The madison and cheap thrills Bored with the beguine The samba isnґt your scene Theyґre playing our tune By the pale.
