Enuff Z'Nuff - "Back In The USSR" (The Beatles cover)

Flew in from Miami Beach BOAC
Didn't get to bed last night
On the way, the paper bag was on my knee
Man, I had a dreadful flight

I'm back in the U.S.S.R.
You don't know how lucky you are, boy
Back in the U.S.S.R. (Yeah)

Been away so long, I hardly knew the place
Gee, it's good to be back home
Leave it til' tomorrow to unpack my case
Honey, disconnect the phone

I'm back in the U.S.S.R
You don't know how lucky you are, boy
Back in the U.S
Back in the U.S
Back in the U.S.S.R.

Well, the Ukraine girls really knock me out
They leave the West behind
And Moscow girls make me sing and shout
That Georgia's always on my mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mind
Oh, come on!

Yeah, I'm back in the U.S.S.R.
You don't know how lucky you are, boys
Back in the U.S.S.R.

Well, the Ukraine girls really knock me out
They leave the West behind
And Moscow girls make me sing and shout
That Georgia's always on my mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mi-mind

Oh show me round your snow-peaked mountains way down south
Take me to your daddy's farm
Let me hear your balalaikas ringing out
Come and keep your comrade warm

I'm back in the U.S.S.R. (Hey)
You don't know how lucky you are, boys
Back in the U.S.S.R

Oh, let me tell you, honey
Hey, I'm back, I'm back in the U.S.S.R.
Hey, it's so good to be home
Yeah, back in the U.S.S.R.


Ο δίσκος των Enuff Z'Nuff "Hardrock Nite"
Γύρω από τον (μουσικό) πλανήτη των Beatles κινείται (ως δορυφόρος) το νέο δισκογραφικό πόνημα των Enuff Z'Nuff, το οποίο φέρει τον τίτλο "Hardrock Nite" κι αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσει στα μέσα του επόμενου μήνα.

Τα δέκα τραγούδια του album είναι είτε διασκευές σε τραγούδια των Beatles, είτε διασκευές τραγουδιών μελών των Beatles (από την προσωπική τους καριέρα ή κάποιων άλλων groups - projects που είχαν). Οι Enuff Z'Nuff υπάρχουν στον πλανήτη της rock μουσικής από τα μέσα της δεκαετίας του ογδόντα και δισκογραφούν από το 1989...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Enuff Z’Nuff's fondness for the legendary rock 'n roll band The Beatles has been more than well documented over the years. The band, now led by co-founder Chip Z'Nuff, have finally decided to go all in on that fandom and have announced the release of “Enuff Z’Nuff’s Hardrock Nite", a covers album of some of their favorite Beatles songs as well as songs from Beatles’ members post-Beatles bands.

The album will be released on November 12, 2021. On "Enuff Z'Nuff's Hardrock Nite", the band offers their reinterpretation of tracks from the world famous Liverpool musician's repertoire with no samples, no synthesizers, no wizards behind the curtain, just four cats in the studio paying respect to their heroes.

"Enuff Z’Nuff’s Hardrock Nite" is a colorful Cadillac Escalade driving 100 mph on the freeway without rules or regulation and just livin' the dream. When the band first emerged on the wider scene, Enuff Z’Nuff were acclaimed as rock’s 'Next Big Thing'.

They were power-pop princes in glam-metal clothing and aptly described as The Beatles and Cheap Trick combined and reinvented for late 80’s US hard rock musical landscape. Long-time fans of the band have yearned, begged, and wished for a Beatles covers album from the band and now, finally, Enuff Z’ Nuff pay tribute to their main inspiration and musical heroes with "Enuff Z’Nuff’s Hardrock Nite" in their own inimitable and rocking fashion. Enjoy the ride!»

Bio: «Enuff Z’nuff are the living, breathing example of what a rock / pop group should be. The band was formed in 1984 in Blue Island, Illinois. Its first release, Fingers On It, gave the band some initial recognition when the track was featured in the 1986 cult movie, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer.

By 1989, original members, Chip Z'Nuff and Donnie Vie, were joined by guitarist Derek Frigo and drummer Vikki Foxx. The band had signed with Atco/Atlantic Records that same year and released their debut self-titled album. The album spawned two singles that were to change the course of the bands history, New Thing and Fly High Michelle.

Both songs were played constantly on radio, and gained heavy rotation on MTV spending over 60 weeks in the top 10. 1991 saw the band release its follow up, Strength. The album had more of a rock overtone, and following its release, the band became regulars on shows like David Letterman and Howard Stern and was featured in Rolling Stone’s hot issue as ‘the next big thing'.

In 1993 the band left Atco records and moved to Arista, releasing the album, Animals With Human Intelligence. The album gained lots of critical acclaim, and prior to its release, Vikki Foxx was replaced by new drummer Ricky Parent.

Still a major force after 20+ albums, Enuff Z’nuff still has a legion of loyal fans, and has earned the respect and acclaim of its peers and contemporaries. With the addition of longtime guitarist: Tory Stoffregen, former Enuff Z'nuff singer/guitarist: Alex Kane, and Chicago native: Daniel Benjamin Hill, the band continues to tour and record relentlessly.»
