Billy Squier Lyrics


Many point to Billy Squier as early-'80s rock personified —
an era when he and many of his peers tempered hard rock
with pop melodicism — and by adding just the right amount
of posing and posturing for the newly constructed MTV set,
he scored a string of arena rock anthems and power ballads.
But Squier did not enjoy overnight success as it took many
years and several failed bands before he hit paydirt as a
solo artist. Born on May 12, 1950, in Wellesley Hills, MA,
Squier began playing piano and guitar at an early age, but
didn't More...

    ------ About the song Christmas Is The Time To Say 'I Love You' performed by Billy Squier

A forgotten classic . I think he made this song almost on the spot. He was filiming a mtv special. Made it into a video also, I think you can find it on you tube somewhere. You can see all the early mtv Vjay's.good stuff

really great lyrics | Reviewer: Matth
    ------ About the song THE STROKE performed by Billy Squier

OC guy, you don't have to feel deeply disturbed by this. It's not actually a sexual song if you read into it.

Just picture a suave, phoney wall street executive with dollar signs in his eyes. The singer is saying "stroke my ego all you want, but I'm not falling for your BS." Even the lyric "first you try to bed me" isn't literal.

It's wine me, dine me, 69 me. Sexual innuendo? Yes, sploogeloads of it. People licked that shit up in the 80's. But ultimately the message is: unbridled greed is the destroyer. In this song, the business man is likened to a sexual predator. The celebration of "The Stroke" is meant to be ironic.

    ------ About the song THE STROKE performed by Billy Squier

This song is told from the point of view of a recording label executive signing a new act to their label. The eponymous 'Stroke' is, yes, a sexual metaphor, but also more related to "stroking the ego", talking about the hoops a band has to jump through and dealing with their label, which is constantly trying to change the artistic direction of the band, which is kind of like the whole 'sleeping with the producer' joke in the movie business. Basically it's welcoming the New Guy to the machine of the music industry, and it's not a welcome sight, but the artist is forced to acquiesce to the nightmare and go along with it all. It's an interesting kind of Dues song, using a sexual metaphor to describe the state of the industry.

It's a great song! | Reviewer: Matthew Muise

    ------ About the song IN YOUR EYES performed by Billy Squier

I prefer listening to harder, faster songs than "In Your Eyes" (Billy Squier's "Whadda You Want from Me" is a great example). I was playing a vinyl copy of the album "Emotions in Motion". When the next to last track on side one started, I had to stop what I was doing (re-listing unsold LPs on eBay) and listen. I know I'd heard it before, many years ago, but being a soft, slow song, I probably hadn't paid it much mind. I guess I can thank maturity for helping me appreciate such a great, simple song. I grabbed my Ovation "Balladeer" and started learning the chord changes. Then I pointed my browser to sing365.com so I could sing along. The last lines of each stanza are the trickiest as far as playing and singing at the same time. But with enough practice (I already played it for over an hour last night), I'll get it. This is simply a beautiful long song, played and sung by someone who can rock out with the best of them. I wish Billy Squier was playing somewhere -- I haven't seen him play live since I saw his band Piper open for Kiss.

    ------ About the song Christmas Is The Time To Say 'I Love You' performed by Billy Squier

One of the few rock Christmas favorites apart from my traditional favorites. As good as "Blue Christmas" by Elvis. But, it sounds very much as it was Freddie Mercury singing...?

One of the best!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Christmas Is The Time To Say 'I Love You' performed by Billy Squier

This song is simply one of the best rock n' roll Xmas songs of all time, right up there with "Christmas", by The Who and "Father Xmas" by the Kinks. Highly recommended.

BIlly Squier kind of dropped of the face of the earth several years ago, but the lyrics in this song show why he was top of the charts at the time!
