RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

Remember when you ran away and I got on my knees and begged you not to leave because I'd go berserk?
Well, you left me anyhow and then the days got worse and worse and now you see I've gone completely out of my mind
And, they're coming to take me away, ha, ha
They're coming to take me away, ho, ho, hee, hee, ha, ha
To the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time
And I'll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats
And they're coming to take me away, ha, ha

You thought it was a joke and so you laughed, you laughed when I had said that losing you would make me flip my lid, right?
You know you laughed
I heard you laugh, you laughed, you laughed and laughed and then you left but now you know I'm utterly mad
And, they're coming to take me away, ha, ha
They're coming to take me away, ho, ho, hee, hee, ha, ha
To the happy home with trees and flowers and chirping birds
And basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes
And they're coming to take me away, ha, ha

I cooked your food, I cleaned your house and this is how you pay me back for all my kind unselfish loving deeds, huh?
Well, you just wait, they'll find you yet
And when they do, they'll put you in the a.s.p.c.a, you mangy mutt
And, they're coming to take me away, ha, ha
They're coming to take me away, ho, ho, hee, hee, ha, ha
To the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time
And I'll be happy to see those nice young men in their clean white coats
And they're coming to take me away, ha, ha
To the happy home with trees and flowers and chirping birds
And basket weavers who sit and smile and twiddle their thumbs and toes
And they're coming to take me away, ha, ha
To the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time
And I'll be happy to see those nice young men...









I would like a new sig line, but am not sure what it should be. So I will just put a tag that says "This space for rent"

I love the lyrics to Tangled up in Blue by Bob Dylan. Taxi by Harry Chapin tells a great story too. Year of the Cat by Al Stewart. Last Chance Texaco by Rickie Lee Jones. Crazy River by Robbie Robertson... Lots of great blues lyrics; too many to list.

Blowing-kisses

Al Stewart's Past, Present and Future is superb, too.

You'll never know how often I think of both you and Spy while listening to music.

I'm surprised that Tequila and Wipe Out didn't make your list.

How 'bout Sanford and Townsend's Smoke from a Distant Fire?

And then there's this . . .

Smoke for a Distant Fire is a great song; had almost forgotten about it.

I don't know if you like Loggins and Messina, but I do. I thought about you (and MS, that perv) when I was listening to albums on the weekend. I hadn't played "Sittin' In" for a long time. Still have to sing Danny's Song out loud whenever I hear it.

Thanks for the video; a new one to me. Like it. I'm betting that MS will appreciate it. He was on my ass yesterday for not offering pussy in my posts.

My brain (or fingers?) is truly scrambled today. Smoke from a Distant Fire.

Found The Midnight Special performance.





I liked Wolfman Jack. I wonder if MS had a catchy handle back when he DJ'd.

RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

No catchy handle HotD, but, I can still puke (DJ speak for talking like a well... DJ). My kids love it when I do it for them, or play an old tape.

Tiki thanks for restoring some semblance of sanity up in this bitch by acknowledging that Dan Fogelberg is/was a tremendous artist.

Everyone around here (except Sally, I really believe she has no idea who he is) is pretending they don't like 'Heart Hotels', 'Make Love Stay', 'Longer', etc., and of course, the songs you mentioned.

It's nice to know that too (for Ramsey) smart, beautiful women think of me when they're alone listening to music.

I'm truly in awe.

RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

I already told you that I like Dan Fogelberg.

I just don't have the obsessive fascination that you demonstrated when you passionately lamented about how he had gone unrecognized as a great songwriter. I think he is well recognized as such.

I liked his collaborations with Tim Weisberg and spun Twin Sons of Different Mothers many many times. One of my favorites is the only (I think) song on the album written solely by Fogelberg, The Power of Gold.

Here you go, Love Doctor:

The story is told of the
Power of gold
And its lure on the unsuspecting
It glitters and shines
It badgers and blinds
And constantly needs protecting.

Balance the cost of the soul you lost
With the dreams you lightly sold
Are you under
The power of gold?

The letters and calls
Got you climbing the walls
And everyone wants a favor
They beg to remind you
Of times left behind you
But you know the past is a loser.

The face you`re wearing is different now
And the days run hot and cold
Are you under
The power of gold?

You`re a creature of habit
Run like a rabbit
Scared of a fear you can`t name
Your own paranoia
Is looming before you
But nobody thinks that
It`s a game.

Balance the cost of the soul you lost
With the dreams you lightly sold
Then tell me
That you`re free
Of the power of gold.

The women are lovely
The wine is superb
But there`s something about the song
That disturbs you...

Thanks for the heads up on 'Power of Gold'.

Just pulled it up on my IPhone and am currently enjoying.

One more for the road.

You probably know this song, MS. It got a lot of air play back in the day. The writer and singer is one of my very favorites, solo and as a member of some great bands.

Been away, haven't seen you in a while.
How've you been?
Have you changed your style and do you think
That we've grown up differently? Don't seem the same
Seems you've lost your feel for me

So let's leave it alone, 'cause we can't see eye to eye.
There ain't no good guys, there ain't no bad guys.
There's only you and me and we just disagree.
Ooo - ooo - ooohoo oh - oh - o-whoa

I'm going back to a place that's far away. How bout you?
Have you got a place to stay? Why should I care?
When I'm just trying to get along We were friends
But now it's the end of our love song...


From We Just Disagree by Dave Mason.

RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

Baby, if I think about you

I think about love.

Darlin, if I lived without you

I'd live without love.

And if I had, the sun and moon

and they were shinin

I would give you, both night and day,

love satisfyin'.

-Bad Company, Feel Like Makin' Love

Then Only You('d) Know and I('d) Know.

I like that one too.

Funny, I have a buddy who's a child of the mid/late 70's and it's at the top of his absolute, without question, 'worst song ever' list.

I've not quite figured out why yet, but it's funny to see his reaction if it's playing in our presence.

RE: FAVORITE LYRICS?

Great lyrics from the Boss on this one.

I crank it every time I can, and my 6 year old sings along:


...here's your mirror and your ball and jacks

but they're not what I came for

oh I came for so much more

and I know you know that too

and I know you know that's true

I came for you

I came for you

I came for you

I came for you, for you, I came for you

Crawl into my ambulance, your pulse is getting weak

Reveal yourself all to me now, while you've got the strength to speak

Cause they're waiting for you at Bellevue, with their oxygen masks

But I could give it all to you now, if only you could ask

Don't call for your surgeon, even he says it's late

It's not your lungs this time, but your heart holds your fate

Don't give me my money back I wanted more

It's not that nursery mouth I came back for

It's not the way you're stretched out on the floor

I've broken all your windows and I ran through all your doors

And who am I to ask you to fight my wars

You should know that's true

And you should know that too

I came for you

I came for you

I came for you

I came for you, for you, I came for you...

-Manfred Mann, For You

Sometimes I wish I had a brother, especially one as cool as your's seems.

I only saw Dave Mason once, years ago. Was feeling allright, yes allright...

Your friend can blame Jimmy Krueger, the guitarist who co-wrote the song. He's dead.

Maybe your friend doesn't like songs about drifting apart; probably a romantic. Put this one on next time you get together. Simple lyrics, but I think the song has a very sexy chasing vibe.

Well, have you seen that girl in the corner
I'd like to take her out of her chains
'Cause if I have my way with you, baby
I would be changing your life today

She was the same as a hundred ladies
But when my eyes looked at her
I learned that she was keeping a secret fire
And if I got real close, I'd burn

So it looked like I had to move slowly
Like a cat at night in the trees'
Cause I was waiting for her to show me
The way that she liked her love to feel

Your eyes got me dreaming
Your eyes got me blind
Your eyes got me hoping
That I'll be holding you close tonight


From Ebony Eyes by Bob Welch (he's dead too, damn it).
