back in the day

togisama togisama
sözlerini yazayım da tam olsun

where were you when it happened?
where could you be found?
were you at the front of the stage?
or in the underground?

from sf back to old bridge
new york back to la
the world of metal changed forever
back in the day

well that was back in the day
and if you weren't there
ıt doesn't matter anyway
because you wouldn't understand

live to die and die to play
every day and place
leave a path of metal
across the world from stage to stage

well that was back in the day
and if you weren't there
ıt doesn't matter anyway
because you wouldn't understand

in denim and leather
we were all part of one force
knocked rock and roll on its ass
and put metal on the course

higher higher higher higher

back in the day
when you weren't there
it doesn't matter
because you wouldn't understand

this is our way of life
a life that was born free
to follow orders how to live
was never meant to be

peals of thunder, sheets of lightening
the power hits the stage
the music was exciting
the mania raged

we all had the fever
our ears started to ring
feeding this wildfire
consuming everything

metal's king back then
and still it's to this day
others imitate or challenge
but it never goes away

donald duck ile dave mustaine'in (çizgi karakter olarak) beraber oynadığı bir videonun sonunda megadeth'in çaldığı şarkıdır.

birçok metal grubunun alternatif'e kaydığı şu zamanlarda, megadeth'in 2004 yılında çıkardığı system has failed gibi bir "metal" albümündeki her şarkı gibi (evet, her şarkı) muhteşemlik fışkırmaktadır bu şarkıdan (hala değişmeden, dimdik ayakta durduğu ve metal ruhunu kaybetmediği için mustaine'e saygım sonsuzdur). ama back in the day ile kick the chair'in daha sert riffleri, çılgın geçişleri ve twinleri ile yerleri ayrıdır. bunların yanına aynı albümden blackmail the universe de eklenebilir tabii. bu şarkıyı beğenenlere kick the chair ve blackmail the universe'i de tavsiye ederim...

it's still the same
we all need a minute to get away
so let it go and feel the flow
if you've got soul, let the world know

y'all remember back in the day, you dig
ray charles, nat king cole, miles davis, ella fitzgerald

now "chain of fools" and "respect"
was the anthem of a woman, aretha said
"what's going on", "let's get it on"
such classic songs, don't forget them
though times have changed
they still remain my inspiration everyday
so give it up for the ones
who came before, opened up that door

billy sheehan'ın son albümünün 2. şarkısı çok güzel bi şarkıdır kanaatimce ve şarkının ortasında bir yerlerde billy baba gitaristlere taş çıkartıcak bir solo atar. manevi babamdır kendisi ne yapsa yeridir.
