Judas Priest - "You've Got Another Thing Coming" (audio)

One life, I'm gonna live it up
I'm takin' flight, I said,
I'll never get enough
Stand tall, I'm young and kinda proud
I'm on the top as long as the music's loud

If you think I'll sit around
As the world goes by
You're thinkin' like a fool
'Cause it's a case of do or die
Out there is a fortune waitin' to be had
You think I'll let it go you're mad
You've got another thing comin'

You've got another thing comin'

That's right, here's where the talkin' ends
Well, listen this night
There'll be some action spent
Drive hard, I'm callin' all the shots
I got an ace card
Comin' down on the rocks

If you think I'll sit around
While you chip away my brain
Listen, I ain't foolin'
And you'd better think again
Out there is a fortune waitin' to be had
You think I'll let it go you're mad
You got another thing comin'

You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'

In this world we're livin' in,
We have our share of sorrow
Answer now is don't give in
Aim for a new tomorrow

Oh, so hot no time to take a rest, yeah
Act tough, ain't room for second best
Real strong, got me some security
Hey, I'm a big smash,
I'm goin' for infinity, yeah

If you think, I'll sit around
As the world goes by
You're thinkin' like a fool
'Cause it's a case of do or die
Out there is a fortune waitin' to be had
You think I'll let it go you're mad
You've got another thing comin'

You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing

Comin', yeah
You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'
You've got another thing comin'


Το single των Judas Priest "You've Got Another Thing Coming"
Το καλοκαίρι (17 Ιουλίου) του 1982 κυκλοφορούσε το ένατο στουντιακό full length album των Judas Priest υπό τον τίτλο "Screaming for Vengeance". Το δεύτερο τραγούδι της δεύτερης πλευράς του βινυλίου ("You've Got Another Thing Coming") έμελλε να γίνει μία από τις μεγαλύτερες επιτυχίες του Βρετανικού σχήματος.

Τον επόμενο μήνα (6 Αυγούστου 1982) κυκλοφόρησε και αυτόνομα, ως single, με μία "ζωντανή" εκτέλεση του "Exciter" στην δεύτερη πλευρά. Ο κιθαρίστας (και εκ των συνθετών του τραγουδιού) K.K. Downing είχε δηλώσει για το "You've Got Another Thing Coming":

«"You’ve Got Another Thing Comin'” was without doubt the song that broke Judas Priest in America. By the summer of 1982, it wasn’t just getting heavy rotation in our stronghold areas of St. Louis and San Antonio. That song was everywhere. You couldn’t turn on a rock radio station anywhere in North America without hearing it.

Bizarrely, it almost didn’t make it onto the album Screaming for Vengeance. It was only when we’d reached Florida for the final mixing of the album that the pieces of a track that we’d had lying around without ever committing to fully finally fell into our laps. And when it did, the song’s appeal seemed like the most obvious thing ever.

"How did we miss it?” Tom Allom said. "I don’t know. But you could just imagine putting this on, getting in the car with the sun shining, and then blasting down a freeway", Rob replied: "That’s it!” we all agreed. It’s got all the elements of driving song.

We hadn’t been aware of that intangible ingredient when we wrote it, of course. But there’s no doubt that it had the kind of beat and tempo that, even if you were driving and going just thirty miles per hour, when you heard that duh-duh-duh-duh intro, you’d be simply compelled to accelerate. On top of that it gave you a happy, carefree feeling that was just so undeniable. Better still, everything about America at that time seemed to revolve around the ethos of "get in the car, turn up the stereo, and drive". It was the ideal song for the time.»
