Summer seems to be officially over in Amsterdam the last couple of weeks. So it's no suprise my mind is already going in winter status dreaming about hitting the slopes. There is just no other explanation for 'Lords of the boards' by the Guano Apes being Sportsong of the Week #16. Is there?
Guano Apes is a German rock band formed in 1994. The band's first success came after they won a local competition with the song 'Open Your Eyes', which became the first and most successful single of their debut album Proud Like a God.
The third single was 'Lords of the Boards', which was a commissioned song fot the 1998 European Snowboarding Championship. There are two official music videos. The one shown here you can see the Apes give a shoe in a ski lodge, mixed with footage of them at a ski field, as well as snowboarding clips.
Takes me back to the slopes and the apres ski! Can't wait to meet the lord of the boards on the way flying down! Good weekend y'all!
Full lyrics "Lords of the Boards" - Guano Apes
I've got the snowboard under my feet I can fly so high, I can fall so deep But who do I see comin' up the track A little green man with the snowboard on his back
He said: And now I'm flying like an angel to the sun My feet are burning and I grab into another world
With the lord of the boards you'll come and get around With the lord of the boards, go mad like a clown
I can stay behind him if I can I wanna be a little more than an "also-ran" Through every curve He's got me beat And maybe it's time that I accept defeat
And now I'm flying like an angel to the sun My feet are burning and I grab into another world
With the lord of the boards you'll come and get around With the lord of the boards, go mad like a clown [x4]
