Faith No More – Ashes To Ashes

Ashes to Ashes” is the seventh track on Faith No More‘s sixth and final studio album Album of the Year. It was the album’s first single and was released on May 19, 1997. Faith No More is an alternative rock group that formed in San Francisco, California in 1982. Their music combines elements of heavy metal, funk, hardcore punk, progressive, soul, hip hop, and jazz, among many others. Their sound is influenced by Eric Burdon, Killing Joke and Frank Zappa, among many others. Faith No More formed in 1982 out of the ashes of Faith No Man, a band formed and headed by Mike “The Man” Morris. Roddy Bottum, Mike Bordin, and Billy Gould, all ex-Faith No Man members, decided they wanted rid of him, and rather than firing him, all three quit. They changed their name to Faith No More at the suggestion of a friend (as “The Man” was no more). After cycling through a few guitarists, the members recruited Jim Martin. A number of singers passed through, including a brief stint by Courtney Love. Chuck Mosley became the full time singer and appeared on their first two records. Their best known song from this era is probably “We Care a Lot”, which satirized the prevalence of charity-related rock efforts such as Live Aid and “We Are the World”. Wikipedia®.

Faith No More – Ashes To Ashes

Faith No More – Ashes To Ashes Lyrics:
I want them to know it’s me.
It’s on my head.
I’ll point the finger at me.
It’s on my head.
Give it all to you.
Then I’ll be closer.
Smiling with the mouth of the ocean.
And I’ll wave to you with the arms of the mountain.
I’ll see you.

I will let you shout no more.
It’s on my head.
I’ll pick you up from the floor.
It’s on my head.
Give it all to you.
Then I’ll be closer.
Smiling with the mouth of the ocean.
And I’ll wave to you with the arms of the mountain.
I’ll see you.

Give the same to me then I’ll be closer, closer.
Give the same to me then I’ll be closer, closer.
Smiling with the mouth of the ocean.
And I’ll wave to you with the arms of the mountain.
Give the same to me then I’ll be closer.
