Strung Out
Steve Perry Lyrics

One very happy warm summer night
I saw your face, what could I do?
So carefully I walked straight up to you

And in the shadows of a moonlit night
I saw those eyes a shinin' through
Heart of gold, I love you misty blue

Oh it's hard to love somebody
Especially when they don't belong to you
'Cause they're loving someone else,
Strung out and hung up on you

I feel like Bogart in a crazy movie
Bogie 'n me, we never beg,
But this time maybe I've got voices in my head

They're sayin' that he's never been good to you
And he's always hurt and let you down,
If what you need is good lovin', I'll be around

It's hard to love somebody
Especially when they don't belong to you
'Cause they're loving someone else,
Strung out and hung up on you.
Strung out, strung out

Well, it's hard to love somebody
Especially when they don't belong to you
'Cause they're loving someone else,
Strung out and hung up on you

It's hard to love somebody
Oh when they don't belong to you
'Cause they're loving someone else,
Strung out and hung up on you
Strung out and hung up on you
Yea, strung out
Yea, strung out
Strung out
Strung out
Strung out
Strung out

Winds of March Journey/Perry tribute band

@bglk2310 I started a Steve Perry tribute called Winds of March. All of us are FANATICAL about playing the album as recorded. I nearly passed out trying to sing the 24 beats at the 2:15-2:45 mark on one breath, While Steve did it live using 3 breaths; live tends to be harder...Chicago Soundstage late 70's here on YT.
I made it on one breath ONLY one time and I literally almost fell over! lol. My band was deeply impressed.

I don't sound anything like Steve, which I think is great because I sound like Michelle and it's still REALLY good.

I consider a serious tribute to be on par with classical music when done right and NOT to cash in.

In fact, in my band, you HAVE TO know Winds of March. We spring it on people at the auditions :). Sink or swim, baby, lol. Both myself and the guitar player have REALLY hard parts there.

It's all I've ever really wanted to do since 1983, 1st time I heard him on Separate Ways. HUGE, HUGE cornerstone influence.

Winds of March Journey/Perry tribute band

I've talked to him.a few times.

Secret is, NEVER, EVER act like the crazy psycho fan. Come help of high water! Be. Cool. ALWAYS.

Don't dis the new project/album if you hate it. Find SOMETHING to like about their new project. Even if you're just glad they're back.

Don't bring 6 foot by 6 foot airbrushed pics of them. It's "cray-cray." (crazy). They will AVOID you like ugly groupies.

Don't ask for autographs. Refrain from requesting 1,800 photos and such. That puts you in the memorable category.

Talk knowledgeably about something that has NOTHING to do with their profession. I've spoken to Sylvester Stallone about Maseratis.

Talk about the weather. Famous people have weather, too! They're just people, NOT worthy of idolatry. They HATE idol worship, too.

Goes without saying: leave politics, sex and religion OUT of the conversation, as you would with anyone else.

Avoid the scream. You know, the Elvis-teeny-bopper scream. Breathe.

Hunt around. Drummer can be found easily at drum clinics for cheap. Do your best to know your stuff before you go, as they're almost all drummers at these.

Know what charity functions they support. Example, they play at a memorial yearly. DO NOT show up at a memorial with the rabid fan bit. Know the story of the project/the tragedy well. Don't go on about it in earshot of people who were hurt by it.

NO being the first for autographs photos, etc...Be. Cool. It's a memorial, NOT a meet-n-greet.

if you play music, be READY to jam or play if asked. I've had it happen. Don't choke! They're not looking for you to to top them. They're looking for sincerity, like Linus in the pumpkin patch. Play from your heart. It's ok to make mistakes! Just don't try to brag. If asked his long, you "have not been playing long enough." That's your out on a bad night.
