Bang Bang

Bullets cannot be recalled. They cannot be uninvented.
But they can be taken out of the gun.


- Martin Amis
(b. 25 Aug 1949)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   I'm having a molasses week - you know, plodding along as fast as I can but seeming to get only about as far as I would if I were wading through a foot of molasses. Maybe a bullet could cut through some of the molasses.....

BONUS #1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzwKVOpoBtE - Bang Bang - Cher, 1966

BONUS #2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N-AgYXz2n9Y - Bang Bang - Nancy Sinatra


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bang_Bang_%28My_Baby_Shot_Me_Down%29:

"Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" is the second single by singer-actress Cher from her second studio album The Sonny Side of Chér. The song was written by Sonny Bono and released in 1966. The song reached number three in the UK Singles Chart and number two on the Billboard Hot 100. The same year, the song was covered by Nancy Sinatra.

The single proved successful, charting high on many national charts worldwide. In the United States, it was Cher's biggest solo hit of the 1960s, peaking at #2. The single sold over 3 million copies, in the US alone, by 1984. In 1987, Cher released this song as a single again from her nineteenth album Cher. However, that time, it failed to chart. This was Cher's first top-three hit in the UK, charting at #3. It would be her last top-three hit, until The Shoop-Shoop Song, twenty-two years later. The 1987 version was performed on both Cher's Heart of Stone and Farewell tours.

Also in 1966, Nancy Sinatra released her version of the song on her album How Does That Grab You?. It featured tremolo effect guitar (played by Billy Strange [1]) and melancholy singing. This version remained relatively obscure until it was used in the opening scenes of the 2003 movie Kill Bill Volume 1. This exposure caused Sinatra's version to be the one chosen by Audio Bullys when, in 2005, they used a sample of the song for their top ten UK hit "Shot You Down", credited officially to Audio Bullys featuring Nancy Sinatra. Canadian rapper Kardinal Offishall also sampled this version for his single "Bang Bang", which appeared on his mixtape Kill Bloodclott Bill in 2004. Rapper Young Buck sampled Sinatra's version on his song "Bang Bang" from his album Straight Outta Cashville...

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 06/26/17:

I was getting ready for a doctor's appointment and remembered how my mother once told me, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away."

Taking her words to heart, I decided to bring an apple. Needless to say, it was immunization day. I didn't like needles and was thinking, "Hmm. There must be some way out of this."

So without thinking, I threw my apple at the doctor. He hasn't spoken to me since.

Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)

Words and Music by Sonny Bono
(16 Feb 1935 - 05 Jan 1998)

Recorded by Cher (b. 20 May 1946), 1966

Recorded by Nancy Sinatra (b. 08 June 1940), 1966


Bang bang you shot me down
Bang bang I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang my baby shot me down

I was five and you were six
We rose on horses made of sticks
I wore black you wore white
You would always win the fight

Bang bang you shot me down
Bang bang I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang my baby shot me down

Seasons came and changed the time
I grew up I called you mine
You would always laugh and say
Remember when we used to play

Bang bang you shot me down
Bang bang I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang my baby shot me down

Music played and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang
After echoes from a gun
We both vowed that we'd be one

Now he's gone I don't know why
Sometimes I cry
You didn't say good bye
You didn't take the time to lie

Bang bang you shot me down
Bang bang I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang my baby shot me down
