Garage Rock with Sax - They Prefer Blondes, by The Banshees!

in garagerock •  4 months ago

Gentlemen prefer blondes, yes they do! So says this 1965 California dance tune with Saxophone!

I imagine these guys were inspired by the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes starring Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell. But the sound and lyrics are straight from one of the Frankie and Annette Beach Movies that were popular in the early 60s.

The song starts with the 4 chords played by just the guitar. Then the drums and sax some in, and its time to dance!

Well you see 'em on the sidewalk, walkin' down the street. Yeah their lips are inviting, and they're very sweet!
Yeah you see 'em on the beach, sweet bathing suit. Well their skin is like putty, hey! In fact they're very cute!
I say gentlemen, yes I say gentlemen, yes I say gentlemen prefer blondes, yeah!

After one more verse and chorus, comes the awesome swingin' sax solo! Get ready to dance with the blondes on the beach!
