The Lyrical Poetry of Jorn


Scot made me aware of Jorn's recent The Duke album. I have heard Jorn do some oldschool covers and he does them very well, but he always sounded too Coverdale to me, sometimes to the point of distraction.

But, since I have been listening to The Duke, I can get beyond that. I am still familiarizing myself with the songs and I like a couple of them a good bit. Upon first listen there was one song that made this album get repeated spinnings instead of one play and on to the next cd. Ironically it is a song I could see Coverdale Whitesnake doing easily. Or Gene Simmons of KISS as it is very saucy. And metal.



Duke Of Love

I've been running with demons
From the day I was born
Burned my soul in the fire
It turned my heart to stone
But I came out of the shadows
And stood my ground through the storm
I stole desire from the devil
And power from the Lord above

I'm the Duke.. the Duke of Love
No King can love a woman like the Duke of Love
The Duke can't get enough
Your soul belongs forever to the Duke of Love

I'll suck you dry like a vampire
I'll make you shiver and moan
Oh baby you are the reason
Please let me take you home

I'm the Duke.. the Duke of Love
No King can love a woman like the Duke of Love
The Duke can't get enough
Your body burns forever for the Duke of Love

Oh Baby...
Now listen...
I'm a hound for good loving
Like a dog for a bone
And if it's raining in your heart baby
You need love to keep you warm

I'm the Duke... the Duke of Love
No King can love a woman like the Duke of Love

The Duke can't get enough
Your heart will stay forever
With the Duke of Love
No King can love a woman like the Duke of Love
No King can love a woman like the Duke of Love

Get over here baby... I'm the Duke
The Duke of Love... all right

I'm the Duke... the Duke of Love
I'm the Duke
I'm the Duke
I'm the Duke


Someone has been kind enough to synch this song to his video game playing:




Word.

Don't know why but this part of the song makes me think of DT Oranges idea Thanks so much for starting this thread here Art, it's just what I needed today!

 Ooooh Art, don't get me started on what I think of Jorn Lande. You know he hugged me @ a DIO show back in 2000 when he was the singer for Malmsteen and I don't know if he went backstage and doused himself with cologne but I didn't want to ever wash the smell of him off of me.......Very NIce.


Speaking of "covers," found this DIO one. Not bad, but I can understand your issue Art, he does sound distractingly identitcal to Coverdale in a lot of his songs. Thats not bad I guess if you like Coverdale!


 

Check out the DIO cover:

Cool Jorn story, iBeaux. I wonder if he will tour the US when his new record comes out in a couple months.

 

His Dio cover in the youtube you posted was decent. His version of Lonely is the Word / Letters From Earth is excellent. Here is his version of Thin Lizzy's Cold Sweat:
