Today's offering on AMD-AM is a trip to the Darkside of rock The group found its signature sound almost by accident. When the group was rehearsing in a studio, which was situated opposite a cinema showing a horror movie, Osbourne recalls that Tony Iommi remarked to the rest of the band how it was strange that people willingly paid to see a movie intended to scare them. The band began to purposely write dark, ominous songs in an attempt to be music's answer to horror films, and in rebellion against the prevalent happy pop music of the 1960s. In a VH1 documentary about the band, Ozzy Osbourne recalled the laughable lyrics of radio-friendly pop at the time, such as "if you ever go to San Francisco, be sure to wear a flower in your hair...," "screw that,", they said, "let's go over there and possess people." This tune though it has 4 names is actually only 2 tunes. “Wasp” is the instrumental lead-in to “Behind the Wall of Sleep” and “Basically” the instrumental bridge leading into “N.I. B.” A personal note; who but Ozzy Osbourne could rhyme the words remorse and corpse? So now let’s cross over to The Darkside with:

Black Sabbath

Wasp/Behind the Wall of Sleep/Basically/N. I. B"

Composers: {Bill Ward/Geezer Butler/Ozzy Osbourne/Tony Iommi}


Visions cupped within a flower
Deadly petals with strange power
Faces shine a deadly smile
Look upon you at your trial

Chill and numbs from head to toe
Icy sun with frosty glow
Words that grow read to your sorrow?
Words that grow read no tomorrow?

Feel your spirit rise with the breeze
Feel your body falling to its knees
Sleeping wall of remorse
Turns your body to a corpse
Turns your body to a corpse
Turns your body to a corpse
Sleeping wall of remorse
Turns your body to a corpse

Now from darkness, there springs light
Wall of Sleep is cool and bright
Wall of Sleep is lying broken
Sun shines in, you are awoken

Oh yeah!

Some people say my love cannot be true
Please believe me, my love, and I'll show you
I will give you those things you thought unreal
The sun, the moon, the stars; all bear my seal

Oh yeah!

Follow me now and you will not regret
Leaving the life you led before we met
You are the first to have this love of mine
Forever with me 'til the end of time

Your love for me has just got to be real
Before you know the way I'm going to feel
I'm going to feel
I'm going to feel

Oh yeah!

Now I have you with me, under my power
Our love grows stronger now with every hour
Look into my eyes, you'll see who I am
My name is Lucifer, please take my hand

Oh yeah!

Follow me now and you will not regret
Leaving the life you led before we met
You are the first to have this love of mine
Forever with me 'til the end of time

Your love for me has just got to be real
Before you know the way I'm going to feel
I'm going to feel
I'm going to feel

Oh yeah!

Now I have you with me, under my power
Our love grows stronger now with every hour
Look into my eyes, you’ll see who I am
My name is Lucifer, please take my hand


The only video clip I could find was a 1970 clip of “Behind the Wall of Sleep.” Maybe Ashinatrix can find a video of the whole compilation.
Anyway here’s the link to the 1970 clip of “Behind the Wall of Sleep:

The greatest hard rock band of all time, possibly. By the way, do you or does anyone else know a way to play "Children of the Grave" in standard tuning on a six string?
