Rock Ballad of The Week: Stryper “Lady”

16 Comments

 

I see you standin’ there, oh so fine
I can’t believe my eyes Girl, I just can’t seem to make you mine
No matter how hard I try

I’ve never wanted any one more than you
Girl, I’m hopin’ that you’re wantin’ me too

Lady, I wanna be your man
Lady…

Won’t you tell me what I’ve gotta do
To win over your heart
This feeling inside is something new
It’s tearin’ me apart

I never dreamed I would meet someone like you
Won’t you tell me that you’re feelin’ it too

Lady, I wanna be your man
Lady…

Baby, I’ll love you all I can
Lady…

Stryper is an American Christian heavy metal band from Orange County, California. The group’s lineup consists of Michael Sweet (lead vocals, guitar), Oz Fox (guitar), Tim Gaines (bass guitar), and Robert Sweet(drums). In 2004, Gaines left the band and was replaced by Tracy Ferrie (bass guitar) but rejoined in 2009.

Formed in 1983 as Roxx Regime, the band soon changed their musical message to reflect their Christian beliefs, and the band’s name was also changed to Stryper. They went on to become the first overtly Christian heavy metal band to gain acceptance in the mainstream. In 1983, they signed with major label Enigma Records and released their debut album The Yellow and Black Attack. In the mid-1980s, Stryper enjoyed their most successful period beginning with the release of To Hell with the Devil, which achieved platinum sales status. Stryper went on to release two more gold albums before breaking up in 1992. In 2003, Stryper came out of retirement for a reunion tour and subsequently signed a multi-album contract with Big3 Records in 2005. In 2013 they signed a multi-album deal with Frontiers Records, and have released Second Coming, which includes 14 re-recorded songs from their first three albums and an album, No More Hell to Pay, released on November 5, 2013. Fallen on October 16, 2015.

  1. Wow! Beautiful and powerful ballad! Thank you for sharing, Sylvester!

  2. Another one I didn’t know.

  3. I hear they’re not so much into the religious thing anymore. I had some friends who are in another band who were kind of making fun of them and then it blew up into a whole big thing…

  4. Great song. Big Stryker fan and loved the album this is on. One of their best.
