Artiestinformatie

Land   Canada

Deze Canadese rockgroep werd in 1970 opgericht door Randy Bachman, Chad Allan, Robbie Bachman en Fred Turner.

De eerste twee albums van de band verschenen in 1973. Tim Bachman werd vervangen door Blair Thornton in 1974. In datzelfde jaar kwamen ze met de hitsingle You Ain’t Seen Nothin Yet in de Nederlandse Top 40 terecht.

De band bracht nog enkele succesvolle albums uit. In 1977 verliet Randy Bachman de groep, om een solocarrière na te streven. Hij werd vervangen door Jim Clench. De band bracht nog enkele albums uit, maar hield toen op te bestaan.



In 1980 kwam er een reünie, met een rechtszaak tussen broers Bachman over de rechten op de bandnaam tot gevolg. Er kwamen toen twee nieuwe groepen. Eén groep werd geleid door Randy en ging toeren onder de naam Bachman-Turner Overdrive. De andere groep werd geleid door Robbie, met de andere oud-bandleden Fred Turner, Blair Thornton, en Randy Murray en toerde als BTO.


In 1984 kwam er een nieuw studio-album uit. De band bestond uit Randy en Tim Bachman, Fred Turner en Garry Peterson. Robbie Bachmans BTO heeft tot 2004 opgetreden. Beide bands zijn sindsdien niet meer actief.

Songtekst

[Musical Intro]

You get up every morning
From your 'larm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above
And people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls who try to look pretty
And if your train's on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed
Look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day
And I'll be

Taking care of business (every day)
Taking care of business (every way)
I've been taking care of business (it's all mine)
Taking care of business and working overtime
Work out

If it were easy as fishin'
You could be a musician
If you could make sounds loud or mellow
Get a second-hand guitar
Chances are you'll go far
If you get in with the right bunch of fellows
People see you having fun
Just a-lying in the sun
Tell them that you like it this way
It's the work that we avoid
And we're all self-employed
We love to work at nothing all day
And we be

Taking care of business (every day)
Taking care of business (every way)
We be been taking care of business (it's all mine)
Taking care of business and working overtime

Mercy
Whooooo
All right

[Instrumental Interlude]

Take good care of my business
When I'm away, every day
Whoooo

You get up every morning
From your 'larm clock's warning
Take the 8:15 into the city
There's a whistle up above
And people pushin', people shovin'
And the girls who try to look pretty
And if your train's on time
You can get to work by nine
And start your slaving job to get your pay
If you ever get annoyed
Look at me I'm self-employed
I love to work at nothing all day
And I'll be

Taking care of business (every day)
Taking care of business (every way)
I've been taking care of business (it's all mine)
Taking care of business and working overtime

[Brief Instrumental Interlude]

Takin' care of business, whoo
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business (every day)
Takin' care of business (every way)
Takin' care of business (it's all mine)
Takin' care of business
And working overtime
Whoooo
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
We be Takin' care of business
We be Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
Takin' care of business
