Mr. Crowley Lyrics

Mr. Crowley, what went on in your head
Mr. Crowley, did you talk with the dead
Your life style to me seemed so tragic
With the thrill of it all
You fooled all the people with magic
You waited on Satan's call
Mr. Charming, did you think you...

    It's about Aleister Crowley (Spelling on first name probably not right. Ozzy was accused of being a satanist, although he was not, he decided to do a song about someone who was: Aleister Crowley. Throughout the song, Ozzy infused it with both subtle religious references, as well as demonic ones.

    The facts about Crowley are quite true and are quite easy to find if you're interested. I've always found Ozzy to be an excellent lyricist from day 1. But in my partying days, (I'm 65 now) the white horse would have been heroin. What connotation that term carries now I haven't a clue. But considering Ozzy and I are of the same generation, I'm thinking there's a decent chance I could be right. js

    "Mr. Crowley" Was Inspired By A Book About Aleister Crowley Which Ozzy Osbourne Had Read And A Deck Of Tarot Cards That Were Found In The Recording Studio As Recording Of The Album Was Commencing. Crowley Was An English Occultist And Ceremonial Magician Who Had Founded The Thelemite Religion In The Early 20th Century.

    "xxdiexalone"

    Just to make this part clear. 1. Page worked on the song for sometime, it's 12 parts. He played it for the guys out at Bron-y-Aur around a camp fire, Plant ran off to find a piece of paper to write lyrics down, and came out five minutes later with Stairway to heaven. Hense the song has no real mean, nothing backwards since Plants not the Crowley follower Jimmy was. The only Crowely refference was on Zepp iii where the first few copies had the saying "do as thou wilt and that shall be the whole of the law" was writing on the outside ring of the vinyl.

    This song is about Aliester Crowley, obviously (I'm worry I spelled his name wrong.) The song "Black Sabbath" is about him as well, I'm pretty sure, and messing around with witchcraft/satanism. Interesting song...
    PS Black Sabbath is my favorite band.

    People, White Horse is slang for cocaine. Plain and simple. Not the horseman of the apocalypse. It's not that complicated.

    Guys, for me the interpretation is rather obviuos. You know that Mr. Crowley was a bisexual man, particpating in homo orgies, homo magic rituals and writing homo poetry. The "white horse" here stands for penis and this is a pretty good metaphore, because sounds enigmatic and as you see could be interpreted in many ways. The interpretation could be also helped by the fact, that this is the "horse" of the author - "my", so there is no way this to be cocaine or some horse of apocalypse. The second sentence continues the joke - it is clear that the author does not mean any real horse, and also the author shows he is just teasing Mr. Crowley, it is not a real question of course :)

    When satanist worship the devil they continue the practice until they have a dream of a white horse running out of their hearts...during an interview with sting in a rolling stone article the interview er asked about the white horse on the cover of ten sumnors tales. He gave three reasons the final reason was it represented a darker chapter in stings life. Do what thou will...

    its simply about Aleister Crowley and his unique life, and Ozzy chronicled only bits and pieces of it, and the lyrics were co-written by Randy Rhoads NOT Bob Daisley! Albeit, the song is excellent, right from the opening keyboards which are haunting, to the shrilling guitar solos coupled with Ozzy lyrics and Bob Daisley's excellent bass-lines! Love this song, and Love Ozzy! Hate Crowley himself though, he was a murderer and an asshole!

    Of course...

    In that case, I looked at the album and much to my surprise saw the tiny face of Bernard Shaw and Marx...Hmm...

    If you believe that music does not influence culture and that culture does not influence music, you are mistaken.

    In my "hood" which is a lower-middle class neighborhood, I can assure you that the gangsta culture is alive and well. Do these kids come from families of drug dealers? NO! They listen to the music that is popular and emulate or reflect or integrate it into their culture.

    Same goes for all other "genres" of teens who are the most affected by what they listen to.

    When your mama said, "don't listen to that crap" it was for a reason!

    The Sgt. Pepper album cover is a blatently clear indicator of WHO was influencing the youth at that time: Marx, Shaw, Crowley, Orwell, Huxley, Hindu guru's, Freud, Jung, and not to mention the only women were actresses and models, or provocative cartoons. If you think this did not have a profound influence on the kids of the day, you need to do more homework!

    WOW!!! For someone to be so adamently against sensorship that they would participate in the blackout, I find it peculiar that my honest and honestly uneducated yet profoundly intuitive opinion would offend you so. I also did not know that you have effectively monopolized the entire "lyric" empire and consider yourself part of the "industry." That's funny. I can be as unabashedly arrogant as you if I so wish. You may "sensor" me all you want, but I know how to get under your skin...You may know how to cut me to the bone, but I writhe just beneathe the surface; pulsating through your veins...can you feel it?
