Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

The song and video I am sharing today is:

James Durbin – Stand Up

James is a former contestant on American Idol where he finished fourth in the tenth season of the show. It was easy to see James had been heavily influenced by all the great 80s metal bands while he was on the show even not having been born until the late 80s himself. This song was one he released in 2011 after the show but James has now taken over the lead vocals of Quiet Riot which obviously fits his personality quite well.

Lyrics:

Tonight, I’m okay
When the lights go down
And I hit the stage
I’m alive, there’s no way
You can stop me now,
It’s in my veins
I can’t wait,
Let’s start the show

 

It’s time to see you stand up
Let me see your hands up
Wanna hear you shout it out
(Come on)
Tell me if you want it
Stand up!
Let me see your hands up
Wanna hear you shout it out
Tell me if you’re ready to go
Ready to go!

 

Turn it up, let it grind,
Just plug me in, I’m amplified
Can’t stop me, block me!
Don’t care if it’s the death of me
Tickin’ like a time bomb
Ready to blow
Now it’s time,
Let’s start the show!

 

It’s time to see you stand up
Let me see your hands up
Wanna hear you shout it out
(Come on)
Tell me if you want it
Stand up!
Let me see your hands up
Wanna hear you shout it out
(Come on)
Tell me if you’re ready to go
Ready to go!

 

Time won’t wait for anyone
Cause we don’t live forever
And if you think I’ve had enough
I’m only getting started now
You’ll see
The lights are shining on me
Yeah yeah

 

Wanna see you stand up
Let me see your hands up
Wanna hear you shout it out
Yeah!

 

Stand up!
Let me see your hands up
Wanna hear you shout it out
(Come on)
Tell me if you want it
Stand up!
Let me see your hands up
Wanna hear you shout it out
(Come on)
Tell me if you’re ready to go
Tell me if you’re ready to go
Tell me if you’re ready to go

    • Hehe thanks, with Idol being back and seeing others do posts with contestants I couldn’t help but think of him. Love a lot of the songs on this album that have that 80s vibe. 🙂
