"Blockbuster" as written by Barrett Strong and Norman J. Whitfield....
Ahh Ahhh, Ahh Ahhh
You better beware, you better take care
You better watch out if you've got long black hair
He'll come from behind, you'll go out of your mind
You better not go, you never know what you'll find
Ahh Ahh, Ahh Ahhh

Can't look into his eyes, you'll be surprised
If don't know what going on behind his disguse
Nobody knows where Buster goes
He'll steal your woman out from under your nose

Does anyone know the way, did we hear someone say
(We just haven't got a clue what to do)
Does anyone know the way, there's got to be a way
To Blockbuster

The cops are out, they're running about
Don't know if they'll ever be able to blockbuster out
He's gotta be caught, he's gotta be taught
'Cause he is more evil then anyone here ever thought

Does anybody know the way, did we hear someone say
(We just haven't got a aho)
Does anybody know the way, there's got to be a way
To Blockbuster

Does anybody know the way, did we hear someone say
(We just haven't got a clue what to do)
Does anybody know the way, there's got to be a way
To Blockbuster

Ahh Ahh, Ahh Ahh
Ahh Ahh, Ahh Ahh

Buster buster blockbuster
Buster buster blockbuster
Buster buster blockbuster
Buster buster blockbuster

Buster buster blockbuster
Buster buster blockbuster
Buster buster blockbuster
Buster buster blockbuster

Buster buster blockbuster
Buster buster blockbuster

    General CommentAlthough the song seems to be about a person, "Nobody knows where Buster goes, he'll steal your woman out from under your nose ....", i think some people interpret this song as being about the Blockbuster Bombs during WW2, hence the sirens at the start of the song.

    General CommentIt's taken me the best part of 40 years to realise that this is a song about a guy called Buster who goes around stealing other people's women and so must be "blocked"! Still, I was only 10 when it first came out.

    General CommentDur! "It is about 'Blockbuster Bombs', traffic jams, and guys stealing your girl?" Please? It is clearly about a stalker, a creep, someone that the cops can't stop.

    Song MeaningHard to believe this classic is hasnt got an interpretation yet.
    AFAIK its (famously) about the Blitzkreig on London in the 1940s - especially the V1/V2 rockets fired by the Nazis.
    Buster = rocket
    'Ahh-ahh' lyrics = air raid sirens

    The rockets were not precise and hit civilian areas to massive effect hence the despair. The people are shouting 'Buster! Buster! Block Buster!' to their goventment.
    Unfortunately the rocket flew faster than any airplane and couldnt be caught by Spitfires or Hurricanes. They devastated London and randomly fell on civilian areas.
    The middle eight part with the dum-dum-dum-dum drum and bass section is meant to evoke the bombs raining down on the populace. They werent dropped by bombers so couldnt be intercepted.
    An old man in a pub told me that spitfire pilots used to fly toward the rockets and shoot the wings off because that was the only way to stop them.

    Ultimately this song is about the despair caused by bombing of civilians.
    It should by listened to (and enjoyed) by this generation and each one that follows; play it for your kids and explain it to them.

    Its a genuine masterpiece; if not musically, then artistically.
