It was the April 14, 2009 American Idol Goes to the Movies week variously known as Idol at the Silver Screen, Cinema Week, and Songs From The Cinema, with legendary film director Quentin Tarantino as the contestants’ mentor and gave us the well-chosen Adam Lambert Born to Be Wild video which we can watch as we see the continued ascendancy of the Season 8 favorite.

Steppenwolf Born to Be Wild lyrics and song were written by Mars Bonfire, and it is the Canadian rock band, Steppenwolf, that made the song their signature hit in 1968. It is among the first heavy metal songs written, perhaps instrumental in establishing the genre. The song was part of the movie soundtrack for the 1969 classic film, Easy Rider which starred Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda.

Steppenwolf Born to Be Wild lyrics and song has been covered by numerous artists, from Wilson Pickett to Ozzy Osbourne (with Miss Piggy).

Now with the Adam Lambert Born to be Wild performance, the classic song is heard once again, this time in the Idol candidate’s signature no holds barred performing style, which had him in his full rock star mode.

As he has done with all of his performance, notably his performances of Tears for Fears Mad World and the Smokey Robinson classic, Tracks of My Tears, the Idol frontrunner has given it his unique spin.

Due to time constraints only two judges commented on each performance. The Adam Lambert Born to be Wild performance was critiqued by Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell.

Paula Abdul had high praise for the performance and for the singer in general to whom she said ‘you dare to dance in the path of greatness,” and ‘one of the bravest contestants ever.’

Simon Cowell was more reserved in praise. He acknowledged it as vocally ‘incredible’ but took issue with the Adam Lambert Born to Be Wild interpretation which he likened to ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show.

The singer has an unbridled approach and proven star power. He continues to be the Idol favorite as the season 8 continues and he competes against the remaining contestants Allison Iraheta, Anoop Desai, Danny Gokey, Kris Allen, Lil Rounds, and Matt Giraud still in the contest. Here is a recap of all of the performances.

Steppenwolf Born to be Wild Lyrics

Get your motor runnin’
Head out on the highway
Lookin’ for adventure
And whatever comes our way
Yeah Darlin’ go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

I like smoke and lightning
Heavy metal thunder
Racin’ with the wind
And the feelin’ that I’m under
Yeah Darlin’ go make it happen
Take the world in a love embrace
Fire all of your guns at once
And explode into space

Like a true nature’s child
We were born, born to be wild
We can climb so high
I never wanna die

Born to be wild
Born to be wild
