    History of this great song, courtesy of wiki:

    Baby Scratch My Back is a 1965 rhythm and blues song by blues singer Slim Harpo. It is mostly an instrumental piece with occasional monologue and harmonica fills by Harpo.[1] The backing has been described as a laconic, loping beat with tremolo laden guitar, wood block maracas, and snapping snare drum sound.[2]

    Harpo referred to it as an attempt at rock and roll for me.[1] Several rock groups had recorded some of his songs, including the Rolling Stones (I'm a King Bee) and the Kinks (Got Love If You Want It). Music writer Todd Everett noted Harpo evidently figured that he had a future in rock and roll.[1] Although it had some success with rock audiences (reaching number 16 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart), Baby Scratch My Back was a number one hit in 1966 on the magazine's Hot Rhythm & Blues Singles chart.[3] It was Harpo's most commercially successful single[1] and was subsequently recorded by several musicians.

    Sally called, when she got the word
    She said I suppose you've heard about Alice
    Well, I rushed to the window, and I looked outside
    And I could hardly believe my eyes
    This big limousine pulled slowly into Alice's drive

    Oh, I don't know why she's leaving, or where she's gonna go
    I guess she's got her reasons but I just don't want to know
    'Cause for twenty four years I've been living next door to Alice
    Twenty four years, just waitin' for a chance
    To tell her how I'm feeling, maybe get a second glance
    Now I've gotta get used to not living next door to Alice

    Grew up together, two kids in the park
    Carved our initials deep in the bark me and Alice
    Now she walks to the door, with her head held high
    Just for a moment, I caught her eye
    As the big limousine pulled slowly out of Alice's drive

    James Isaac Moore (January 11, 1924 – January 31, 1970), better known by his stage name Slim Harpo, was an American blues musician, a leading exponent of the swamp blues style, and one of the most commercially successful blues artists of his day. His most successful and influential recordings included I'm a King Bee (1957), Rainin' In My Heart (1961), and Baby Scratch My Back (1966) which reached no. 1 on the R&B chart and no.16 on the US pop chart. A master of the blues harmonica, his stage name was derived from the popular nickname for that instrument, the harp.

  • Harpo - Movie Star 1975 Lyrics

    3:32

    Here is the original video by Harpo

    Lyrics
    Movie star

    You feel like Steve McQueen
    When you're driving in your car
    And you think you look like James Bond
    When you're smoking your cigar
    It's so bizarre
    You think you are a new kind of James Dean
    But the only thing I've ever seen of you
    Was a commercial spot on the screen

    Moviestar, oh Moviestar, ah ah ah,you think you are a Movie
    Moviestar, oh Moviestar, ah ah ah,you think you are a Movie-
    Star ah ah ah

    You should belong to the jet set
    Fly your own private learjet
    But you worked in a grocery store
    Every day you could afford to get away
    So you went to Sweden to meet Ingemar Bergman
    But he wasn't there or he just didn't care
    I think it's time for you my friend
    To stop pretending that you are a

    Moviestar, oh Moviestar, ah ah ah, you think you are a Movie
    Moviestar, oh Moviestar, ah ah ah, you think you are a Movie-
    Star ah ah ah

    Frozen hero
    Your words are zero
    Your dreams have vanished into dark long ago
    But you're the one to know

    Moviestar, oh Moviestar, ah ah ah, you think you are a Movie
    Moviestar, oh Moviestar, ah ah ah, you think you are a Movie
    Moviestar, oh Moviestar, ah ah ah, you think you are a Movie-
    Star ah ah ah
    Moviestar, oh Moviestar, ah ah ah
    Moviestar, oh Moviestar, ah ah ah
    Moviestar, oh Moviestar, ah ah ah


    Moviestar is a popular 1975 song, written and performed by Swedish pop singer Harpo. The single was produced and arranged by Bengt Palmers. It reached number 1 in Sweden, Norway, Austria, Switzerland and Germany,[1] number 3 in Australia, number 9 in New Zealand, number 13 in Ireland and number 24 in the UK.[2] A Swedish language version was also released in Sweden which went to number 1 on the Svensktoppen radio chart on 10 July 1976.
    Anni-Frid Lyngstad of ABBA was one of the backing vocalists singing the words Moviestar, oh Moviestar, ooh.

    The song was covered by the French-German duo Stereo Total on their 1995 release Oh Ah! and used on the soundtrack to the romantic comedy movie The Tao of Steve (2000).
    The German synthpop band And One covered it on their 1997 album Nordhausen.
    In 1984 the Spanish singer Miguel Gallardo made a new adaptation. He called the song Tu Amante o Tu Enemigo. The lyrics have nothing to do with the original in English but retain the melody.
    The song was used in Nissan commercials on the Swedish TV Channel TV4 in 1996 and 1997.
    The song was covered by Swedish singer Evelyn on her 1999 release Partystarter.

    why did you leave and where did you go
    Motorcycle Mama
    I've been looking everywhere for you

    Do you remember in '65
    when Jimi Hendrix was still alive
    Before we went into the Woodstock scene
    And turn on to the rock-machine

    We rode a red Harley Davidson
    as we tried to follow the sun.

    Motorcycle Mama
    why did you leave and where did you go
    Motorcycle Mama
    I've been looking everywhere for you

    Do you remember in '67
    we were into the flower-power heaven
    Riding up the silvery coast highway
    Riding up in the Frisco bay

    Like Ravi Shanker I played his sitar
    And Maharishi Yogi was my Guru Star.

    Motorcycle Mama
    why did you leave and where did you go
    Motorcycle Mama
    I've been looking everywhere for you

    Although released all over Europe, it was not a hit.

    Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio recorded a cover version of With a Girl Like You for the 2009 Red Hot compilation Dark Was the Night.

    In 1986, Italo disco singer Chriss recorded a cover version entitled With a Boy Like You.
    Although it has a typical dance tune, this version also has guitars, making it sound more like a pop-rock song, making it a rarity among the Italo disco genre.

    Alex Chilton recorded a cover version of With a Girl Like You which is included in the 1991 Rhino compilation 19 Years: A Collection of Alex Chilton.

    Yo La Tengo / Condo Fucks recorded a cover version of With a Girl Like You on their covers album Fuckbook.
