Showdown – Electric Light Orchestra (1973)

Showdown – Electric Light Orchestra (1973) HQ Audio Remaster HD Video

“Showdown” was released on Electric Light Orchestra’s third studio album, On The Third Day, in the winter of 1973.

Not much to say here, just something I always wanted to do….a great early Electric Light Orchestra tune from 1973’s On The Third Day album, and a movie that I never get tired of watching, 1995’s The Quick And The Dead.

Being a huge fan of both spaghetti westerns (and of the master in particular, Sergio Leone) and Sam Raimi, I’ve always thought this such a cool movie, though some at the time thought it missed the target….it is what it was meant to be, just an extremely stylish and fun tribute to the spaghetti westerns….made by fans for fans! The direction, cinematography, art direction, and editing (absolutely loaded with bits that I would have loved to have in the video, and actually had more in earlier but had to chop them out as it was just too much! 😉 If you’ve never seen the movie…..you’re in for a treat…..get some popcorn in, queue it up and have a blast! LOL!

The Quick And The Dead….http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0114214/

I hope you enjoy the effort…and thank you for checking it out!

[Lyrics]
She cried to the southern wind
About a love that was sure to end
Every dream in her heart was gone
Headin’ for a Showdown
Bad dreamer, what’s your name?
Looks like we’re ridin’ on the same train
Looks as through there’ll be more pain
There’s gonna be a Showdown
And it’s rainin’ all over the world
It’s raining all over the world
Tonight, the longest night
She came to me like a friend
She blew in on a southern wind
Now my heart is turned to stone again
There’s gonna be a Showdown
Save me, oh, save me
It’s unreal, the suffering
There’s gonna be a Showdown
And it’s rainin’ all over the world
It’s raining all over the world
Tonight, the longest night
Raining, raining
Raining, raining
Raining all over the world
Raining all over the world
The longest night
And it’s raining all over the world
Raining all over the world
Tonight, the longest night
