Ozzy Osbourne - Flying High Again (40th Anniversary Official Music Video)



"Flying High A

gain" is a song by British heavy metal vocalist Ozzy Osbourne, from his 1981 album Diary of a Madman. Released as a single, it reached number two on the Billboard Top Tracks chart in 1982.


Although the song has been assumed to be about cannabis use, Osbourne has stated that the song was inspired by his successful re-emergence as a solo artist after being fired from Black Sabbath and subsequently believing his career was over.[citation needed] The song is in the key of Ab minor.


Gina Boldman of Allmusic praised Randy Rhoads's guitar solo in the song as one of his best. She called "Flying High Again" " a good-time heavy metal song that was hard to take seriously" but "one of Ozzy's most likable and memorable songs of his early-'80s period." In 2015, radio station 100.7 WZLX ranked it the 223rd greatest song.


An animated music video celebrating guitarist Randy Rhoads was released on November 5, 2021.




Lyrics



Oh no, oh no

Here we go now

Oh no, oh no

Here we go now


Got a crazy feeling I don't understand

'Gotta get away from here

Feelin' like I should have kept my feet on the ground

Waitin' for the sun to appear


Mamma's gonna worry

I've been a bad, bad boy

No use sayin' sorry

It's something that I enjoy


'Cause you can't see what my eyes see

(I can see it, I can see it)

And you can't be inside of me

Flying high again


I can see through mountains, watch me disappear

I can even touch the sky

Swallowing colours of the sound I hear

Am I just a crazy guy (you bet)


Mamma's gonna worry

I've been a bad, bad boy

No use sayin' sorry

It's something that I enjoy


If you could be inside my head

You'd see that black and white is red

Flying high again

Flying high again

Flying high again

Flying high again

Come on and join me


Flying high again

Flying high again

Flying high again

Come on and join me


Oh no, oh no

Here we go now

Oh no, oh no

Here we go now


Daddy thinks I'm lazy he don't understand

Never saw inside my head

People think I'm crazy but I'm in demand

Never heard a thing I said


Mamma's gonna worry

I've been a bad, bad boy

No use sayin' sorry

It's something I enjoy


Flying high again

Flying high again

Flying high again

Flying high again
