The Majesty Of Rock

There’s a pulse in the new-born sun;
A beat in the heat of noon;
There’s a song as the day grows long,
And a tempo in the tides of the moon.
It’s all around us and it’s everywhere,
And it’s deeper than Royal blue.
And it feels so real you can feel the feeling!
And that’s The Majesty Of Rock!
The fantasy of Roll!
The ticking of the clock,
The wailing of the soul!
The prisoner in the dock,
The digger in the hole,
We’re in this together…and ever…

In the shade of a jungle glade,
Or the rush of the crushing street,
On the plain, on the foamy main,
You can never escape from the beat.
It’s in the mud and it’s in your blood
And its conquest is complete.
And all that you can do is just surrender.
To the Majesty of Rock!
The Pageantry of Roll!
The crowing of the cock,
The running of the foal!
The shepherd with his flock,
The miner with his coal,
We’re in this together…and ever…

When we die, do we haunt the sky?
Do we lurk in the murk of the seas?
What then? Are we born again?
Just to sit asking questions like these?
I know, for I told me so,
And I’m sure each of you quite agrees:
The more it stays the same, the less it changes!
And that’s The Majesty Of Rock!
The Mystery of Roll!
The darning of the sock,
The scoring of the goal!
The farmer takes a wife
The barber takes a pole.
We’re in this together…and ever…

Jarang orang yang kenal dengan lagu ini, lagu ini diciptakan oleh grup musik asal Inggris, Spinal Tap yang didedikasikan untuk mendiang Freddie Mercury. Spinal Tap sempat membawakan lagu ini dalam konser penghormatan untuk Freddie Mercury di Wembley Stadium, 20 April 1992.

Spinal Tap adalah band heavy metal, subyek dari film rockumentary / mockumentary This Is Spinal Tap.(1984). Film ini diiringi oleh album soundtrack dengan judul yang sama. Setelah film ini dibuat, ketiga aktor yang memerankan anggota band ini telah bermain musik dalam konser dan menerbitkan album di bawah bendera Spinal Tap, mengaburkan batas antara fiksi dan kenyataan.

Band ini berasal dari Inggris. Anggotanya adalah Michael McKean (sebagai David St. Hubbins), Christopher Guest (sebagai Nigel Tufnel), dan Harry Shearer (sebagai Derek Smalls). Mereka muncul pertama kali dalam sebuah acara televisi stasiun ABC berjudul The TV Show tahun 1978. Ketiganya kemudian bergabung kembali pada 2003 sebagai band American folk music revival The Folksmen dalam mockumentary A Mighty Wind.

Spinal Tap memiliki banyak mantan drummer, semuanya meninggal dengan penyebab aneh. Salah satu dalam “kecelakaan berkebun yang aneh”; yang lain “tersedak muntah”, walaupun tidak jelas muntah siapa karena “muntah tidak dapat disidik jari”; yang lain karena spontaneously human combustion di atas panggung, meninggalkan sebungkah bola hijau di atas kursi drumnya.

  • John “Stumpy” Pepys (1964-1967) Died in a bizarre, unexplained gardening accident.😀
  • Eric “Stumpy Joe” Childs (1967-1974) Choked on vomit of unknown origin.
  • Peter “James” Bond (1974-1977) Spontaneously combusted onstage.
  • Mick Shrimpton (1977-1982) Onstage explosion
  • Joe “Mama” Besser (1982) Quit the band, claiming he “couldn’t take this 4/4 shit”; according to an MTV interview with Spın̈al Tap in November 1991, he disappeared under mysterious circumstances.
  • Gary Wallis, Jody Linscott (Amnesty International performance in 1991) (Wallis pretended to explode at the end of the performance.)
  • Richard “Ric” Shrimpton (1982-1999) Allegedly sold his dialysis machine for drugs, presumed dead
  • Sammy “Stumpy” Bateman (2000) Died in a freak tricycle accident jumping over a pool of sharks.😆
  • Mick Fleetwood (2000) The only one to survive unscathed.
  • Scott “Skippy” Scuffleton (2001-2007) His iPhone exploded in his hands while downloading “The best of Celine Dion”.😆
  • Plus 14 other drummers at various times all of whom are dead.
