Oh no….there goes Tokyo!

Another classic from Blue Oyster Cult’s Spectres album, which was released in the winter of 1977, “Godzilla” is an prime example of the awesome guitar rock that this band was famous for. In this song, the Buck Dharma’s stun-guitar work is…..well, stunning! LOL! The song has become one of the band’s most popular songs and it a staple of their live performances.

***This was a very old video (#56) that was one of a few that had to come down for various reasons. I made some really quick edits to make it move a bit faster, but resisted a completely new video….if you remember the old one, you’ll recognize this one!

*****A quick re-edit including a few things that were bugging me…titles and album art now “running” in direction of people and fire trucks, a few more instances of the fast loops at the end of the sequence for balance, and the end titles now feature the drive-in effect as in the beginning (not that anyone watches them! LOL!)….for those curious as to the changes.

“Godzilla” is my second BOC video for a song which has been done numerous times before, but the obviousness of the match and fun that can be had in making a video, is just too hard to resist. These other versions of videos created from BOC’s “Godzilla” and the famous reptile monster of the same name, have done a fine job….but like I said, it’s just too much fun to resist…..so…..here ya go….”Godzilla”!

As usual HUGE THANKS to everyone who’s art made this new art possible….THANK YOU!!!

Special thanks to Directed by Ishirō Honda’s Godzilla vs. Mothra from 1964….man, I used to love these movies!

Hope you like the effort.

[Lyrics]
With a purposeful grimace and a terrible sound
He pulls the spitting(CITY’S) high tension wires(LINES) down, Godzilla!

Helpless people on subway trains
Scream BUG-EYED(MY GOD) as he looks in on them, Godzilla!

He picks up a bus and he throws it back down
As he wades through the buildings toward the center of town, Godzilla

Oh no, they say he’s got to go
Go go Godzilla, yeah
Oh no, there goes Tokyo
Go go Godzilla, yeah

Oh no, they say he’s got to go
Go go Godzilla, yeah
Oh no, there goes Tokyo
Go go Godzilla, yeah

Rinji news o moshiagemasu!
Rinji news o moshiagemasu!
Godzilla ga Ginza hoomen e mukatte imasu!
Daishkyu hinan shite kudasai!
Daishkyu hinan shite kudasai!
(Attention, emergency news!
Attention, emergency news!
Godzilla is going toward the Ginza area!
Immediately escape, catch up, find shelter please!
Immediately escape, catch up, find shelter please!)

Oh no, they say he’s got to go
Go go Godzilla, yeah
Oh no, there goes Tokyo
Go go Godzilla, yeah

History shows again and again
How nature points up(OUT) the folly of men
Godzilla!(4x)

I also did a couple of other tracks from this great album:

“I Love The Night”

“Nosferatu”
