Jet City Woman

A Blog Post for GameBanana

Make the clouds go away, time for some blue sky!

I really love Bonfire's cover songs album - Legends. Both because of a bit more modern but stylistically accurate performance of world-known rock and metal hits and the way the band makes the music. 

I've opened for myself a pair of new super songs:

1. Doctor, Doctor (UFO) 

2. And the most precious discovery - Jet City Woman (Queensryche)

I like everything about this song! Its music, special mood of missing the person you love, everything!

Since I'm about to go to school of rock vocal soon as I like to sing a lot - tried to learn the lyrics of this song for home karaoke, and I must admit - it's one of the hardest songs to perform! It's very close to Bad Company and Judas Priest songs, where you can't guess or predict how to sing some areas, where to make pauses and where to emphasize and prolong some words in case you forgot. You simply need to know. If Guns'n'Roses songs are hard to perform because lots of things must be sang very fastly that you can't sometimes catch up in time, Jet City Woman - is a song that needs knowledge of the special places. How Iron Maiden, Dio, Bon Jovi and alike guys are easy, you can sing their songs even after barely hearing it, music would help you understand.

Jet City - is a nickname of a Seattle. If somebody knows why this town is called this way - please write in comments! Couldn't find an answer to it. Now reading the book which action takes place there, so this song is quite appropriately =)

By the way - here're the lyrics of Jet City Woman. You may try to listen it once and try to sing it afterwards. I made it as it needs to at 4th try, what is pretty bad for me, as I usually learn the style of performance after 2nd try.

"Jet City Woman"

Every time I leave
You say you won't be there.
And you're always there.
Every time I cry your name at night,
you pull close and say it's alright.
I look in your eyes, just like the rain.
Washing me, rain wash over me.
Touching your face, I feel the heat
of your heartbeat echo in my head like a scream.
What you do to me!
Waited so long I can't wait another day without you.

Jet City Woman.
It's a long way, home to my
Jet City Woman.
I see her face everywhere, can't get her out of my mind.

Whenever I'm alone I'm thinking,
there's a part missing from my life.
Wonder where I'd be without your love
holding me together now I'm
watching the time tick, tick away.
Face grows longer every day.
Fortunes are lost on the women I've seen
but without you I can't breathe!
You're the air to me!
Waited so long, I'm all alone thinking about you.

Jet City Woman.
Got to find my way home to her.
Jet City Woman.
I see her face everywhere I look!
Jet City Woman.
Just a thousand miles and I'll be there
Jet City Woman, to make the clouds go away.
Time for some blue sky!

Waited so long now the plane's delayed
and hour, reminds me of all our days apart.
Hold on, just a little longer!

Jet City Woman.
Wonder where I'd be, you're the air to me.
Jet City Woman.
Eyes like the rain, rain down on me.
Jet City Woman.
No more nights alone I'm almost home now.
Jet City Woman.
Close my eyes, I'm there in my Jet City.

    Rather simple lyrics but the music and vocals do the magic. The song leaves a nice impression indeed.

    By the way, Internet suggests that Seattle is called Jet City since the Boeing Company was founded there.
