I immediately thought of so many Radiohead and Tori Amos songs,, but have to say Joy Division/New Order's Ceremony gets me every time, especially near the end of the song: "Avenues all lined with trees, Picture me and then you start watching, Watching forever . . . Watching love grow, forever . . . "
What are some of your favorites?
*when I see your face...there is not a thing I would change cause your amazing just the way you are*
*yo, yo, I know way to many people here right now......That I didnt know last year.........Till it's over till its over, its far from over*
You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave - Hotel California (Eagles)
There's a killer on the road, his brain is squirmin' like a toad - The End (Doors)
First lyric that comes to mind is by The Who:
"Here comes the new boss, same as the old boss."
And I can't forget "You can't always get what you want..." by the Rolling Stones.
Unfortunately I spent a lot of time listening to Van Halen, who are second only to Night Ranger for dull, uninspiring lyrics.
My all time favourite song lyrics are those of 'White Rabbit' by Jefferson Airplane ... the song is well before my time though
...i like songs that have something to say...there are many....how 'bout Motorhead's Orgasmatron....it's not for everybody........love many of pink floyd's....
Oh yeah! The lyrics from 'The Wall' are, of course, unforgettable.
Love Pink Floyd. Definitely can't go wrong with them. Don't know any Motorhead, but the song name intrigues me. Haha, I'll have to check it out.
Sittin on the Dock of the Bay by Otis Redding...
Best line: I can't do what ten people tell me to do... So I guess I'll remain the same...
"Everybodys talkin", by Harry Nilsson
Everybodys talkin at me
I don't hear a word they're sayin
only the echoes of my mind
People stop and starin
I can't see their faces
only the shadows of their eyes
I'm goin where the sun keeps shining
through the pourin rain
goin where the weather suits my clothes
banking off of a northeast wind
sailing on a summer breeze
skipping over the ocean like a stone
“Itsy-bitsy, teeny-weeny, yellow polka-dot bikini…”
“One-eyed, one-horned, flying, purple, people-eater…”
“Hang down your head Tom Dooly…”
“It’s hard to say I love you when you’re…”
" And you'll have to eat your lunch all by yourself " from " Already gone " by The Eagles.
" God Save The Queen. We mean it Man ! from God Save the Queen by The Sex Pistols.
The mashed potato song - by didi sharp way before my time but its just a song that puts me on a high all the time and makes me wanna dance. Guess im sad!!! lol
"Love me for a reason, let the reason be love"
The Osmonds sang it in 1974. A fine melody too
"Well, now the sun's comin' up.
I'm ridin' with Lady Luck.
Freeway cars and trucks
are beginning to fade
as I lead the parade
just a wishin' I'd stayed a little longer
the feelin's gettin' stronger
Gimme one reason to stay here
and I'll turn right back around.
"Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away, and all your money
won't another minute buy.
All we are is dust in the wind" by Kansas, Dust in the Wind
"And if by chance, that special place
That you've been dreaming of
Leads you to a lonely place
Find your strength in love"
by Whitney Houston, The Greatest Love of All
I believe for every drop of rain that falls, a flower grows.
I believe that somewhere in the darkest night, a candle glows.
I believe for everyone who goes astray, someone will come to show the way.
I believe above the storm the smallest pray'r will still be heard.
I believe that someone in the great somewhere hears every word.
Every time I hear a newborn baby cry, or touch a leaf or see the sky,
Then I know why I believe!
The Letterman for the song "I believe"
"You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You'll learn things you never knew you never knew
You can own the Earth and still
All you'll own is Earth until
You can paint with all the colors of the wind"
"Colors Of The Wind" Lyrics
Great choices, PDH. Do you remember who did "I Believe" originally? I want to say someone like Montavani or some older crooner.
Frankie Laine, 1953? I am not sure mam.
"They’re selling razor blades and mirrors in the street,
I pray that when I’m coming down you’ll be asleep,
If I ever hurt you your revenge will be so sweet,
Because I’m scum,
And I’m your son,
I come undone."
Come Undone - Robbie Williams
From Rascal Flatts' "I'm Movin' On"
"I've lived in this place and I know all the faces,
Each one is different but they're always the same,
They mean me no harm but it's time that I face it,
They'll never allow me to change,
But I never dreamed home would end up where I don't belong.
I'm movin' on."
From Zac Brown Band's "As She's Walking Away"
"my heart won't tell my mind to tell my mouth what it should say"
From Jessica Andrew's "Unbreakable Heart"
"Please remember this, when you drop your guard,
Nobody has an unbreakable heart"
" Why must it takes so long before we see, how sad the answers to those questions can be..?"
-DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU'RE GOIN' TO- Diana Ross
I really like this one, Chris Young, “The Man I Want To Be”.
During my performances lately I am receiving a lot of requests for this song.
Now I wanna do it up (SO BIG)
Party it up (SO BIG)
Spend it up (SO BIG)
So the whole world knows my love for you is (SO BIG)
My heart is (SO BIG)
My love is (SO BIG)
For you, for you, for you.. .
Just love those lyrics.....cant ever get it out of my head...always makes me think of my gf.
I think on of the all time greats has to be John Lennon.
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace..
(From 'Imagine' by John Lennon)
R.I.P John Lennon, assassinated 30 years ago today.
Billy Brag has a lot of great lines. Here are a few personal favourites.
"As she made for the door, leaving me on the floor, I wished I'd done biology, for an urge within me wanted to do it then." - The Warmest Room.
"A wife has three great attributes - intelligence, a Swiss Army knife, and charm." - The Warmest Room.
"I saw two shooting stars last night. I wished on them, but they were only satellites!" - A New England
"How can he go on, when no-one answers the adverts in his mind?" - Richard
One of my favourites is Simon & Garfunkel - Homeward Bound
"But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity"
or Jimmy Cliff - Too Many Rivers To Cross
"And this loneliness won't leave me alone"
Right now I'm digging Pink's lyrics to Raise Your Glass.
So if you're too school for cool
And you're treated like a fool
You can choose to let it go
We can always We can always
Party on our own
So raise your glass
If you are wrong
In all the right ways
All the underdogs
We will never be never be anything but loud
And nitty gritty dirty little freaks
Won't you come on and come on and raise your glass
Just come on and come on and raise your glass
One that comes to mind is Donovan's "Catch the Wind."
In the chilly hours and minutes of uncertainty
I long to be in the warm hold of your mind
To feel you all around me and to take your hand across the sand
Ah but I may as well try and catch the wind
Strange how laughter looks like crying with no sound
Raindrops taste like tears without the pain-
queensryche another rainy night
"She said I can't go back to America soon
It's so goddamn cold it's gonna snow until June
Yeah, they're freezin' up in Buffalo stuck in their cars
And I'm lyin' here 'neath the sun and the stars....
Don't try to describe the ocean if you've never seen it
Don't ever forget that you just may wind up being wrong...
But women and water are in short supply
Don't try to describe the scenery if you've never seen it
Don't ever forget that you just may wind up in my song
Called all my friends on those cheap nightly rates
Sure was good to talk to the old United States
While the lights of St. Thomas lie twenty miles west
I see General Electric's still doing their best.
I've got to head this boat south pretty soon
New album's old and I'm fresh out of tunes
So please don't say manana if you don't mean it
I have done your lines for so very long
Don't try to describe a Kiss concert if you've never seen it
Don't ever forget that you just may wind up being gone
And I hope Anita Bryant never does one of my songs"
i like paramore brick by boring brick
'well you built up this world of magic
because your real life is tragic
you built up this world of magic'
