      Before getting down to the business of access to presale codes, etc. please take note:   ***Please be advised that any member publicly posting actual presale codes anywhere on the forum (and possibly elsewhere!) or reportedly through private messages, will be banned from membership here on AO! NO EXCEPTIONS!   Our site here at adamofficial.com (aka AO) is Adam's official record label site, not his official fan club, and is not the place to find presale codes, nor are they provided through the official newsletter.   Presale codes are provided to paid members of Adam's official fan club one to several hours before the presale begins. If you are a paid member you can find the presale code in your dashboard at that site.
      The official fan club, Adam Lambert Fans, can be found here: http://www.adamlambertfans.com
      You must pay a fee to join. I believe the minimum fee is $9.99.
      Any other entity, website, or contact person on Twitter, email, etc. claiming to be representing Adam's official fan club and collecting payments other than directly at the above website is BOGUS, NOT LEGITIMATE!   Any questions you may have concerning any aspect of the fan club, including presale codes, VIP* tickets, Meet and Greet* opportunities, should only be addressed to the fan club moderators, DearBecky and addictedtoadam here on AO in the Adam Lambert Fan Club subforum.

I know this is now considered one of his old songs but the footage is only a couple years old :wacko:  I think it is important to mention some of the songs that slipped 'under the radar' here DownUnder! Great lyrics :wub:  Enjoy  :D   :) Start playing at 4.00 minute mark for CHOKEHOLD  ;)

Yet another beautifully written song and sung of course by Adam  :wub: Do you think he is singing about the gay community? ;) 

 

Undeniably - he has said so :)    At one of his appearances he remarked how things were changing so much that they might not be Outlaws of Love anymore :wub:

 

Adam Lambert Discusses Gay Rights Anthem “Outlaws Of Love”

Adam Lambert's sexual orientation has unfortunately been a focus of media scrutiny ever since he appeared on "American Idol" three years ago, and especially since he came out on the cover of Rolling Stone in June 2009. Until now, the otherwise outspoken Idol has opted not to directly address gay issues in his own music, but on a poignant new track off his excellent sophomore album Trespassing (out May 15), the gay rights anthem "Outlaws Of Love," he tackles some serious topics--on his own terms, and in his own voice. And in an age when the hot-button issue of same-sex marriage is hotter than ever, the song's message could not be better-timed.

In a recent exclusive interview with Yahoo! Music's Reality Rocks about Trespassing, Adam revealed: "When I wrote this song, I was directly referring to the sadness that I felt in taking in the adversity that the gay community faces on every level: marriage, bullying, acceptance of all kinds, our presence in the entertainment community and how that's still up and coming, politics, all of it...I definitely wrote it about my community."

.

In the chorus to "Outlaws Of Love," Adam earnestly sings: "Everywhere we go / I'm looking for the sun / Nowhere to grow old and always on the run / They say we'll rot in hell / But I don't think we will / They've branded us enough / Outlaws of love." It's possibly his boldest musical move yet, and one that will certainly have people talking--although, as he explained, the song is definitely open to interpretation.

"I think it's important, because there's been a lot of music in pop lately that's been kind of uplifting, inspirational messages saying, 'It's okay to be different, you can do it!' And I think that's really important, and I have a couple of those too--but this is a song that's like, 'F***, it sucks sometimes!' Sometimes this sucks, and it makes me sad," Adam explained. "And that's the reality of it. I think my last album was all about escapism, for the most part, and this album's more about reflecting on the human condition. So sometimes, it's sad."

I've always loved Chokehold (but then I love all of Adam's songs on his first two albums, so anything you like to post ... :lol: )
