Bowie, David - She Shook Me Cold Lyrics




We met upon a hill, the night was cool and still
She sucked my dormant will
Mother, she blew my brain, I will go back again
My God, she shook me cold

I had no time to spare, I grabbed her golden hair
And threw her to the ground
Father, she craved my head, Oh Lord, the things she said
My God, she should be told

I was very smart, broke the gentle hearts
Of many young virgins

I was quick on the ball, left them so lonely
They'd just give up trying

Then she took my head, smashed it up
Kept my young blood rising
Crushed me mercilessly, kept me going around

So she didn't know I crave her so-o-o

I'll give my love in vain, to reach that peak again
We met upon a hill
Mother, she blew my brain, I will go back again
My God, she shook me cold

Bowie, David She Shook Me Cold Comments
  1. joe a

    this song is so gloriously sleazy, I love it so much. such a fucking great album!

  2. Larry Wilson

    Did he ever do this song live?

  3. thatchers bastard child mr scoots

    Visconti's bass on this is fucking insane absolutely freeflow

  4. Carl Wilson

    Out Cream-ing Cream. RIP David, Mick and Trevor.

  5. Lee James the one and only.

    Trevor Bolder was the producer, and somehow ended up playing BASS on this album.
    OMFG.
    Circumstance meets the heart of humanity.
    This album would never have been possible without that man.
    Ronson and others, great.
    Trevor, unbelievable.
    Listen to what he does with his bass.
    Tripping.
    Thx all.
    Good sub woofers help.
    All over the scale.......
    Kinda like Geezer.
    Lead bass.

    Johnny Hall

    Trevor Bolder joined the Group later for Ziggy Stardust, the Bass was played by Tony Visconti who also produced the Album, see the credits on the back of the album!

    Lee James the one and only.

    @Johnny Hall Your, right.
    I got caught up in my head.
    Been a while..

  6. peter ryder

    'Spoonful' by Cream anyone?......... but it works brilliantly. If you are gonna rip-off, rip-off the best.

  7. Steinar Remme

    Goddamned what a great song!

  8. david boyd

    I saw The Spiders at Winterland in SF Ca 1972 GREAT!

    Pete Owen

  9. Poet Cummings

    I had no time to spare I grabbed her golden hair....

  10. Hernan Reboiras

    Heavy af

  11. Capricious Men

    First Bowie album I ever owned. Gold Circle bargain bin. I bought most of His catalog that way. THE BEST!

  12. Lawrence Scott

    Bowie Sabbath

  13. RHMAK♥

    Rock blues? No, forse la tangibile prova dell'immenso talento compositivo del Duca quando ancora la fame (e la fame ) era tanta ...qui con la terrificante unghiata del Ronno alla chitarra...

  14. jdm kdc

    The best song on the album

    Gary Ablett

    its CORRECT

  15. Jeff Bogue

    do yourself a favor if you haven't already and listen to the whole album The Man Who Sold the World , it totally kicks ass and it's cool to hear Tony Visconti on the bass, always loved Mick Ronson and Woody on the drums, I love the raw sound of David's vocals , it's been almost 50 years ago and the album still totally kicks ass

    Gary Ablett

    Is right

    Lee James the one and only.

    The bass was Trevor Bolder.
    On most of these tracks.
    He was the producer but, ended up playing......
    Tony V ,a great musician but, Trevor really makes it.

  16. The Dying Duke

    We met upon a hill, the night was cool and still
    She sucked my dormant will
    Mother, she blew my brain, I will go back again
    My god, she shook me cold
    I had no time to spare, I grabbed her golden hair
    And threw her to the ground
    Father, she craved my head, oh lord, the things she said
    My god, she should be told
    I was very smart
    Broke the gentle hearts of many young virgins
    I was quick on the ball, left them so lonely
    They'd just give up trying
    Then she took my head, smashed it up
    Kept my young blood rising
    Crushed me mercilessly, kept me going around
    So she don't know I crave her so-o-o
    I'll give my love in vain, to reach that peak again
    We met upon a hill
    Mother, she blew my brain, I will go back again
    My god, she shook me cold

  17. Vernon Hawkins III

    This song is so heavy

  18. Gerry Berry

    Mick Ronson should have got a writing credit on this song for that incredible “solo” that takes up the majority of this great tune!

    Gary Ablett

    IS RIGHT

    Nigel Caprotti

    watch your mouth, keiba

    #Hesch tag

    Quite out of tunne tbh.

  19. X O

    1970 and Bowie nailed Stoner rock riffs with a huge Ronno solo in the middle of it. Ronson is still underrated in my opinion. A pure musician who played guitar with the most incredible technique.

    Carl Schumacher

    true, mick got some big time raunch out of his les paul. it's apparent he listened to jeff becks beck-ola and truth albums.

  20. jdm kdc

    Che chitarra

  21. randy t.

    This song is hot, wow

    Regina Lynn Bush

    Oh yeah

    Mercurial V

    IKR ... 😍

    Jeff Bogue

    You know it ! this whole album The Man Who Sold the World is pretty sweet, I love the width of a circle and all the Madmen, on a whole the album is great

  22. Jonathan Rose

    This is a good groove.

  23. ThinWhiteAxe

    That guitar solo, wow. Jimmy Page much?

    TheGreaterGood80

    Yeah, they played in a cover band for a bit.

    Lincoln Hirschi

    Umm no. The late great Mick Ronson, no slouch, that dude.

    jmscoopy

    Mick Ronson > Jimmy Page

    jste

    apparently the band were trying to copy Cream

    Gary Ablett

    THAT IS A MASSIVE COMPLIMENT TO THE PAGESTER

  24. Raymond Kitchen

    If only all his songs were like this, I would be a fan of more than just 'The Man Who Sold The World' album.

    Gerry Berry

    Raymond Kitchen His songs WERE all like this....just different!

    Gerry Berry

    Samuel Camarillo Nonsense. Bowie’s songs had a very definite style....BOWIESTYLE!

    Jeff Bogue

    if you follow his work just up until 83 he had such a diverse collection of music , I thought this album was awesome, but I did like hunky dory, Ziggy was awesome, his plastic soul Young Americans was awesome , Station to Station was great too , then you go. 1980 where he's doing the scary monsters , I thought ashes to ashes was awesome and the video is awesome too , then when Stevie Ray Vaughan played on his Let's Dance album, how can you get any better than that ? I thought he was great up until the day he died even black stars amazing , I was fortunate just to have lived through his career , people will be discovering David Bowie for many a generations to come

    T-Dawg 0041

    oi, David is the master of change, at least one if his albums can suit someone, no matter what they're into

    Picnicl

    Aladdin Sane and The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, particularly the former, should have some songs that aren't entirely outside of your preference, I'd hope, Raymond. Maybe 'Within You' from the Labyrinth soundtrack too.
