"The Right Stuff" as written by and Robert Newton Calvert....
I don't feel fear or panic
And nothing brings me down.
I'm an aerospace age warrior
I can fly sideways through sound.
My reflexes and reactions
Are as fast as a machine.
I'm the right stuff baby
The right stuff.
I'm the right stuff baby
The right stuff
Just watch my trail.

When the dial needle flickers
Around Mach one or two
And something happens suddenly
I know exactly what to do.
My feet move without thinking
And my hands like lightning too.
I'm the right stuff baby
The right stuff
I'm the right stuff baby
The right stuff
I never fail.

My nerves are made of steel
And my eyes are eagle sharp
And what would freak the average man
Does not affect my heart
Not even if this sardine-can
Should shake itself apart
Cause I'm the right stuff baby
The right stuff
I'm the right stuff baby
The right stuff
As hard as nails
I never fail
Just watch my trail

    General CommentWow, the guitar in this song is insane!

    Sounds like he's talking about playing the guitar, or maybe playing a show

    General CommentCover of an old Hawkwind song. This song has the greatest music video ever.

    I think it's about space warfare.

    General CommentIt is a song by Captain Lockheed and The Star fighters (Bob Calvert and various members of Hawkwind). The song was about the F104 Starfighter that in the early seventies had a nasty habit of falling out the sky, hence it's nickname The Widowmaker!
