[Motorcycles in Music] Both Wheels Left The Ground

Crazy Cavan and the Rhythm Rockers are a rockabilly band from Wales, a country on the southwest side of Great Britain.

The band was originally formed in 1964, and despite numerous personnel changes, continues to perform today, still led by vocalist Cavan Grogan.

The band’s look is classic “teddy boy” style: hairstyles swept forward and bright, fashionable, foppish clothes that look like they came from Saville Row…in 1967.

Motorbikes were integral to the teddy boy scene, and Crazy Cavan recorded a couple hits referencing biker culture.

Both Wheels Left the Ground makes no apologies and no attempts to cover the fact that it celebrates the joys of riding fast.

Both Wheels Left the Ground

Well, shooting down the highway like a bullet from a gun
Wind blowing in my face, really having fun
Pull down the throttle, when you wanna hear the sound
I got the throttle wide open, both wheels left the ground
 
Well I ain’t got a worry and I don’t give a damn
I tell you pretty baby I’m a fast livin’ man
When I pull down the throttle, then you gonna hear the sound
I got the throttle wide open, both wheels left the ground
 
Well shooting past some wagons and nipping through the lanes
People think I’m crazy, like I ain’t got no pains
They don’t understand, man I’m just fooling around
I got the throttle wide open, both wheels left the ground
 
Well, skimming down the highway like a bullet from a gun
Wind blowing in my face, really having fun
Pull down the throttle, when you wanna hear the sound
I got the throttle wide open, both wheels left the ground
