Poetry Friday: Spun Again by Danny Grady (aka Bar-Ba-Sol as sung by David Cook)

Current Mood: sick
Current Song: Bar-Ba-Sol by David Cook

When I woke up, I could see
The daylight had already passed me
It was such a fight to fade away to sleep

It's a fugue I'm on
Found to chase down the dawn
Well, I fell every night as it turns into light
With my eyes just shut tight

Sailing all alone
I thought I made it home
But I threw it all away

Oh, where I've been
Sold and spun again
All before me like a dream
Falling in between
I feel sick, I feel nervous
I know just what I did to deserve this
Though I know it's not a dream

- lyrics from the song Spun Again (Bar-Ba-Sol), written by Danny Grady

I selected this song to post today because it was on my mind when I awoke this morning. This song was originally written by Danny Grady of the band Injected. I hadn't heard that prior to posting this; I only knew of the song as recorded and performed by David Cook, when it was retitled Bar-Ba-Sol.

david cook/rstar - kiss

i'm sure you know i love David Cook more than i probably should, but he didn't technically write this one. he added some words here and there and changed some of the guitar riffs, but a band called Injected from GA actually wrote this.

still...awesome song.

I didn't know that. Thanks for the info. I'll amend my post.

no problem! i'm sure most people who aren't diehard DC or Injected fans didn't know. i prefer David's version, but the original is good too. Danny and David have similar voices.

p.s. strange song to wake up with, but i guess it probably got you going, huh? :)

Thanks. The vocals and the arrangement do sound extremely similar.

It didn't get me going as much as it was indicative of my mood!

I love, love, love song lyrics.
I just went and checked out this song on Itunes. Good tune!

The guitar is rougher/rock-ier than what I typically listen to, but I do enjoy David Cook's vocals, which is how/why I heard the song.

contemplative

So take a minute just to breathe
And think of everything you wanted
And what you got instead

Is it a labor just to see
Around the left, the right, over my head
To straight ahead?

Ruffles - sleeping

I have huge amounts of love for David Cook and this is my favorite song on his album. Great choice!

(I didn't know that it was written and performed by another band first. Interesting...)
