#86 Stop the Rock

#86 Stop the Rock – Apollo 440

Were you to take the entire product of Status Quo (all 40 years worth), filter out the whimsy and put the rest in a car crusher, you’d be left with the first 10-20 seconds of this track by Apollo 440 (or Apollo Four Fourty or A440 or @440 or – if the note is ‘A’ then the concert
pitch would be 440 Hz). A perennial favourite with the ad-men (and me) this is but one of the band’s many single releases, although easily fthe most successful. Excellent song and a very Liverpudlian video, which I’m glad to see is still on Daily Motion.

 

Lyrics

Stop the rock, stop the rock
Stop the rock, stop the rock
Stop the rock, can’t stop the rock
You can’t stop the rock, stop the rock
Stop the rock, can’t stop the rock
You can’s stop the rock, can’t stop the rock (repeated)

Shake that paranoia, can’t stop the rock! (repeated)
Come move me move me
Dancing like Madonna, into the groove

Stop the rock, can’t stop the rock
You can’t stop the rock, can’t stop the rock

Let’s get down and dirty baby
Come get down and dirty babe

Down and dirty baby

Shape the rock like Henry Moore
Aphrodite at the waterhole, come on!

Stop the rock, can’t stop the rock
You can’t stop the rock, can’t stop the rock
