This is a call

This Is A Call Single Vinyl Cover

"This Is a Call" is the first major single released by the Foo Fighters from their self-titled debut album. It was released in 1995. No video was made for the song.

Dave Grohl said about the song: "The chorus says 'This is a call to all my past resignation'. It's just sort of like a little wave to all the people I ever played music with, people I've been friends with, all my relationships, my family. It's a hello, and in a way a thank you."

The song debuted at #12 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart. It quickly rose to a peak of number 2, held off the top by Alanis Morissette's huge hit "You Oughta Know." This was the band's highest peak until the band's "Learn to Fly" topped the chart in late 1999. The song also surprisingly charted at #5 in the UK Singles Chart, their highest peaking single in this chart along with "All My Life", with both holding this record until "Best of You" reached #4 in 2005.

LyricsEdit

  Visiting is pretty
  Visiting is good
  Seems that all they ever wanted was a brother
  This can be a secret
  We can keep it good
  Even all the ever wanting had a problem
  This is a call to all my
  Past resignations
  It's been too long
  Fingernails are pretty
  Fingernails are good
  Seems that all they ever wanted was a marking
  Them balloons are pretty
  Big and say they should
  Ever fall to ground
  Call the magic marker
  This is a call to all my
  Past resignations
  This is a call to all
  This is a call to all my
  Past resignations
  It's been too long
  Minicyn is pretty
  Minicyn is good
  Seems that all the cysts and mollusks tend to barter
  Ritalin is easy
  Ritalin is good
  Even all the ones
  Who watered down the daughter
