Radio 58, side A, track 6: “Anytime” by McAuley Schenker Group

MCG - AnytimeOh, McAuley Schenker Group, I think you and Dan Reed Network should get together and put on a conference about how to make the most boring rock band names ever.  Seriously, guys, this was a great tune, and granted it wasn’t until recently that I learned it was you who sang it, but after hearing your name I wasn’t motivated to seek out any more of your stuff.  Because you guys sound like you should be located in an office park instead of rockin’ out on a stage.

“Yes, I’m looking for the McAuley Schenker Group?  I have an appointment.”  “Fifth floor.  Take the elevators and they’ll be to the right.”

There are so many words in the world, McAuley Shenker Group, you could have picked anything.  I’m totally fine if you want to keep your names in there, but how about the McAuley Shenker Explosion?  The McAuley Shenker Bombardment?  The McAuley Shenker Soundgasm?  Hell, even McAuley Shenker Rock Band would be a step up from “group”.  And if you wanted to keep “group” in there for some reason, then we can go with McAuley Shenker Group Hug.  Guys, I came up with all of these in like five seconds.  And if you want me to come up with more, I’ll be happy to do it.  I loved this song as a kid, and it’s still a solid rock tune, so let’s work on this name and get you guys back out there.  I think you know when I’ll be available to help you out.

. . .

The answer is any time.

“Anytime”

<awesome McAuley Schenker Group jam>

Blow a kiss from your haaaand

Catch it ‘fore it hits the ground

Cry a little for our feeears

Baby
Baby

I’m so scaaaared

There’s somethin’ wrooong

I hidjoo in the corner of my
Empty room

Never really cared ’til nooow

Not standin’ in the corner for me
Anymooore

You’ve done your tiiiime

Pass your sentence and I’ll pass miiine

And when my time is through, ohh
Can I still come home to you

Any time, any time
You want me
Any time, any time
Yo lonely

You just have to call, ’cause you know I’ll be theeeeere
Oooo
Any time, any time
You need me
Any time, any time
Maybe yo dreamin’

Wakin’ up all alone
Ya heart is screeeeamiiiin’, ohh

I know I caused ya so much pain

I promise that I’ll never hurt
You again

Even though the scars remain

With a little time I know
We can win

Can’t stop this fire

Lost control over my desire

Still it burns f’you

Like it always used to do

Any time, any time
You want me
Any time, any time
Yo lonely

You just have to call, ’cause you know I’ll be theeeeere
Oooo
Any time, any time
You need me
Any time, any time
Maybe yo dreamin’

Wakin’ up all alone
Ya heart is screeeeamiiiin’, ohh

<awesome McAuley Schenker Group jam>

And after the war is over

And all the fiiighting’s through

Can I make my peace with you

I wanna come home to yooooooou

(Any time, any time) aaaany time
