#RocktoberMusicFest ♪ “Warm Machine” – Bush

I was in my early teens when Grunge took over the music industry. Local bands like Nirvana and Pearl Jam (yeah, they’re from my neck of the woods) lit up the airwaves and inspired countless bands to follow. Even so, the genre of grunge just didn’t have the power to suck me in to the point of spending all my allowance on flannels the way it did for everyone else. Then, there was Bush. When Gavin Rossdale started filling my eardrums with his sexy, gritty voice, teaching me how to breathe properly, only to take my breath away with every other song, I declared him my future ex-husband. Of course, he’s still my first future ex-husband of choice, but more have been added to the list, so I’m over it…a little. Maybe.

Anyway, I know I’ve already used this song in a previous post for a different music event, but hopefully it’s been long enough that no one quite remembers. And I love SOOOOOOOOOOO many different Bush songs, I should be able to pick one I’ve never posted about before. Honestly, I think I have Gavin Rossdale songs most people have never even heard of, so why do I keep choosing this song over every other track in my extensive collection???

That damn guitar. It just gets me every freaking time…

Warm Machine

by: Bush

I memorize the basics
Making strange faces
Tread slowly for I know
There’s a thousand miles to go
Without blinking

I gravitate spacewards
Find a home for my head
From my basement
No darkness ever left

This is the night
There’s the sound
Here comes the warm machine
Such a warm machine
Feel warm

Some days are playful
I’m making play faces
But we will not let it through
The darkness or the sense
Of being born to loose

This is the night
This is the sound
Here comes the warm machine
Such a warm machine

(omitted from video)
This is the life
This is the ground
Here comes the warm machine
Such a warm machine

If we never know we can only feel
I’ll take the help
I’ll take a slice
Warm alright now
To feel all right

Ay!

(omitted from video)
I memorize the basics, basics, basics

This is the night
This is the sound
Here comes the warm machine
Such a warm machine

Such a warm machine
Such a warm machine
Machine, machine, machine

*Shivers* Oooh that guitar rift puts me in my happy place every time! For sure, this song is more about the guitar for me than the words Now, here’s your challenge: Say “Warm Machine” without blending the 2 M’s into one and pronouncing it “War Machine”… hahaha, good luck! 😉
