Alice Cooper (echte naam: Vincent Damon Furnier) wordt op 4 februari 1948 geboren in Detroit in de Amerikaanse staat Michigan. Hij is (glam)rockzanger en muzikant. Alice Cooper is eerst de naam van Furniers band. Als die begin jaren 70 stopt, begint hij onder dezelfde naam een succesvolle solocarrière.

Die begint in Nederland voorzichtig met een Tipparadenotering voor School's Out in 1972. Daarna weet hij binnen iets meer dan een jaar maar liefst vijf keer de top 10 te halen van de Top 40. Zijn eerste hit Elected wordt meteen de grootste uit zijn carrière.

Na 1973 is het een paar jaar stil maar in 1979 haalt Cooper opnieuw de top 10 met How You Gonna See Me Now, weer ruim tien jaar later gevolgd door Poison in 1989. In 1991 scoort hij zijn derde Alarmschijf en achtste Top 40-hit met Hey Stoopid.




Songtekst

HALO OF FLIES

I've got the answers
To all of your questions
If you've got the money
To pay me in gold

I will be living
In old Monte Carlo
And you will be reading
The secrets of soul

Daggers and contacts
And bright shiny limos
I've got a watch
That turns into a lifeboat

Glimmering nightgowns
And poisonous cobras
Silencer under the heel of my shoe

The elegance of China
They sent her to lie here on her back
But as she deeply moves me
She'd rather shoot me in my tracks

And while a Middle Asian lady
She really came as no surprise
But I still did destroy her
And I will smash
Halo of flies

I crossed the ocean
Where no one could see
And I put a time-bomb
In your submarine
Goodbye to old friends
The secret's in hand
With full ream of papers
And counterfeit plans
You never will understand.


UNDER MY WHEELS

The telephone is ringing
You got me on the run
I'm driving in my car now
Anticipating fun
I'm driving right up to you, babe
I guess that you couldn't see, yeah yeah
But you under my wheels
Why don't you let me be

'Cause when you call me on the telephone
Saying take me to the show
And then I say, honey, I just can't go
Old lady's sick and I can't leave her home

The telephone is ringing
You got me on the run
I'm driving in my car now
I got you under my wheels
I got you under my wheels
I got you under my wheels
Yeah yeah
I got you under my wheels
Yeah yeah
I got you under my wheels

The telephone is ringing
You got me on the run
I'm driving in my car now
Anticipating fun
I'm driving right up to you, babe
I guess you that couldn't see, yeah yeah
But you was under my wheels, honey
Why don't you let me be, yeah yeah
I got you under my wheels
I got you under my wheels
I got you under my wheels
Yeah yeah
