Music Video Spotlight: Some Guys

Rod some guys dance

What’s black, white and red all over? Most of the music video for “Some Guys Have All The Luck”. This one filmed to accompany the 1984 Top 10 single off Camouflage is a work of art, literally. Between Rod Stewart dancing in a striped and polka dot world, we catch glimpses of art, color and, always essential, saxophones. Caution: We can’t guarantee you’ll get the “woos” out of your head.

Sing along with the lyrics and watch below!

Some guys have all the luck
Some guys have all the pain
Some guys get all the breaks
Some guys do nothing but complain

Alone in a crowd on a bus after working, I’m dreaming
The guy next to me has a girl in his arms, my arms are empty
How does it feel when the girl next to you says she loves you?
Seems so unfair when there’s love everywhere but there’s none for me

Some guys have all the luck
Some guys have all the pain
Some guys get all the breaks
Some guys do nothing but complain
Woo woo woo
Woo woo woo

Someone to take on a walk by the lake Lord, let it be me
Someone who’s shy, someone who’d cry at sad movies
I know I would die if I ever found out she was foolin’ me
You’re just a dream, and as real as it seems, I ain’t that lucky

Some guys have all the luck
Some guys have all the pain
Some guys get all the breaks
Some guys do nothing but complain

All of my friends have a ring on their finger, they have someone
Someone to care for them, it ain’t fair, I got no one
The car overheated, I called up and pleaded, there’s help on the way
I called you collect, you didn’t accept, you had nothing to say

Some guys have all the luck
Some guys have all the pain
Some guys get all the breaks
Some guys do nothing but complain

But if you were here with me
I’d feel so happy, I could cry
You are so dear to me
I just can’t let you say goodbye
Woo woo woo, Woo woo woo
Woo woo woo, Woo woo woo
Woo woo woo, Woo woo woo
Woo woo woo, Woo woo woo
Woo woo woo, Woo woo woo
Woo woo woo, Woo woo woo
Woo woo woo, Woo woo woo
