What's Playing Right Now At The HQ

The Kinks' Catch Me Now I'm Falling, also known as Captain America Calling, at least to me.

Just thought I'd share.

Over and over again. Both the long and short versions.

It kept going through my head after 9/11. The lyrics were pretty damn spot-on:

I remember, when you were down
And you needed a helping hand
I came to feed you
But now that I need you
You won’t give me a second glance
Now I’m calling all citizens from all over the world
This is captain america calling
I bailed you out when you were down on your knees
So will you catch me now I’m falling

Help me now I’m calling you
Catch me now I’m falling
I’m in your hands, it’s up to you
Catch me now I’m falling

I remember when you were down
You would always come running to me
I never denied you and I would guide you
Through all of your difficulties
Now I’m calling all citizens from all over the world
This is captain america calling
I bailed you out when you were down on your knees
So will you catch me now I’m falling

Help me now I’m calling you
Catch me now I’m falling
I’m in your hands, it’s up to you
Catch me now I’m falling

When you were broke you would come to me
And I would always pull you round
Now I call your office on the telephone
And your secretary tells me that she’s sorry,
But, you’ve gone out of town.*

This is captain america calling
This is captain america calling

Help me now I’m calling you
Catch me now I’m falling
I’m in your hands, it’s up to you
Catch me now I’m falling

*Alternate Lyric:

I stood by you through all of your depressions
and I lifted you when you were down
now it's your chance to do the same for me
and your secretary tells me that
you've gone out of town


I guess the Katrina disaster makes me think of it too, except now Captain America can help its own (scan down for a list of relief charities).

On My Wavelength Update-- Tres writes:

The thing that makes me feel as if my Cheerios have been pee'd upon is that I have yet to hear of any relief efforts being offered from our "friends" throughout the world. Lord knows we've put it out there for any of them time and time again.

That's sort of what I'm thinking.

Again, the lyrics:

I never thought that you would let me down
But the next time you’re in trouble
Better not come running to me

Just So You Don't Think I'm Calling America A Weaking Update: Some ass-kicking Captain America lyrics:

When Captain America throws his mighty shield
All those who chose to oppose his shield must yield
If he's led to a fight and a duel is due
Then the red and the white and the blue will come through
When Captain America throws his mighty shield!
