I don't think we've done this before, but there are a lot of songs about being in a band, and/or touring in a band. It's sort of an existential concept - being in a band that goes on tour, to sing songs about being in a band and on tour. Here are a few examples to start, and I'm sure there are plenty of others. Include the pertinent lyrics too. Bob Seger – Turn The Page Here I am, on a road again There I am, on the stage Here I go, playing star again There I go, turn the page Chicago – Introduction So this is what we do Sit back and let us groove And let us work on you We've all spent years preparing before this band was born With heaven's help it blended And we play for you Dire Straits – Sultans Of Swing You check out Guitar George he knows all the chords Mind he's strictly rhythm he doesn't want to make it cry or sing Left-handed old guitar is all he can afford When he gets up under the lights to play his thing And Harry doesn't mind if he doesn't make the scene He can play the honky tonk like anything Saving it up for Friday night With the Sultans, with the Sultans of Swing Ramones – I Wanna Be Sedated Twenty-twenty-twenty four hours to go I wanna be sedated Nothin' to do and no where to go-o-oh I wanna be sedated Just get me to the airport put me on a plane I can't control my fingers I can't control my brain Just put me in a wheelchair get me to the show Boston – Rock And Roll Band Well, we were just another band out of Boston On the road to try to make ends meet Playin' all the bars, sleepin' in our cars And we practiced right on out in the street But when we got up on stage and got ready to play People came alive. Playin' for a week in Rhode Island A man came to the stage one night And said, "Boys, I think this bands outta-sight Sign a record company contract Rock and roll band Play, play, play, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah MGMT – Time To Pretend Let's make some music make some money find some models for wives. This is our decision to live fast and die young. We've got the vision, now let's have some fun. Yeah it's overwhelming, but what else can we do? Get jobs in offices and wake up for the morning commute? Forget about our mothers and our friends. We were fated to pretend.
