FAVORITE LYRICS?

Kudos to Aussie and Crash per your Australian brothers, Little River Band.

A late 70's/early 80's band, they've got many songs I like, including a snippet from this one:


If there's one thing in my life that's missing,

It's the time that I spend alone,

Sailing on the cool and bright clear water.

It's kind of a special feeling

Out on the sea alone

Staring at the full moon

Like a lover.

- Little River Band, taken from Cool Change

That's gracious and makes a lot of sense, MS.

I'm gonna try it.

Mo: Thank you immensely for your fellow Germans, The Scorpions. Loving You Sunday Morning always turns me on.

ESAD: Congratulations for the great music brought to us here in America by your fellow Englishmen. Bonus points for Led Zeppelin.

FAHQTOO: Nice work, John Cougar-Mellencamp.

sally: Jesus. The Miami Sound Machine. Well, it's not totally your fault.

For Midwest Spy:
Sweet blossom come on, under the willow
We can have high times if you'll abide
We can discover the wonders of nature
Rolling in the rushes down by the riverside

Minny minny kudos. Good stuff. Smiley_emoticons_smile

Built like she was
She had the nerve 2 ask me
If I planned 2 do her any harm

So, look here
I put her on the back of my bike
And-a we went riding
Down by old man johnsons farm

I said now, overcast days never turned me on
But something about the clouds and her mixed

She wasn't 2 bright
But I could tell when she kissed me
She knew how 2 get her kicks


Prince, Raspberry Beret

How could I forget that ^^^?

Summer of '85, almost 19 years old and leaving for Europe.

'Raspberry Beret' was the last of Prince's songs that I really liked.

I'm going to claim a man named Tandyn Almer, too.

Born in Minneapolis, he moved to So. Cal, and wrote this 1966 classic that was recorded by The Association:

Duchess will appreciate the fact that's it's a joyous ode to smoking Mary Jane.


Every time I think that I'm the only one who's lonely
Someone calls on me
And every now and then I spend my time in rhyme and verse
And curse those faults in me

And then along comes Mary
And does she want to give me kicks , and be my steady chick
And give me pick of memories
Or maybe rather gather tales of all the fails and tribulations
No one ever sees

When we met I was sure out to lunch
Now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch

When vague desire is the fire in the eyes of chicks
Whose sickness is the games they play
And when the masquerade is played and neighbor folks make jokes
As who is most to blame today

And then along comes Mary
And does she want to set them free, and let them see reality
From where she got her name
And will they struggle much when told that such a tender touch as hers
Will make them not the same

When we met I was sure out to lunch
Now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch

And when the morning of the warning's passed, the gassed
And flaccid kids are flung across the stars
The psychodramas and the traumas gone
The songs are left unsung and hung upon the scars

And then along comes Mary
And does she want to see the stains, the dead remains of all the pains
She left the night before
Or will their waking eyes reflect the lies, and make them
Realize their urgent cry for sight no more

When we met I was sure out to lunch
Now my empty cup tastes as sweet as the punch.

-The Association, Along Comes Mary

OK MWS, stop it! I am not taking credit for the Little River Band........you can give full credit to Crash for that, and whilst you are at it, Russell Crowe too. By the way, you guys can keep Crowe. bbbrrrrrrr *shudders*

My wife made we watch Les Miserables with her the other night.

Who told Russell Crowe he could sing?

What if he had to sing all his lines from Gladiator?

That would've been one shitty movie.

I fell asleep during the movie.

However, I thought Hugh Jackman was very good.

My brothers got the ship's band to play this and they both danced with my Mum and her college roomate.

They were celebrating their 85th Bday.

I cried like a baby and it's now a favorite.





Hear 'em singing Happy Birthday
Better think about the wish I made
This year gone by ain't been a piece of cake
Every day's a revolution
Pull it together and it comes undone
Just one more candle and a trip around the sun

I'm just hanging on while this old world keeps spinning
And it's good to know it's out of my control
If there's one thing that I've learned from all this living
Is that it wouldn't change a thing if I let go

No, you never see it coming
Always wind up wondering where it went
Only time will tell if it was time well spent
It's another revelation
Celebrating what I should have done
With these souvenirs of my trip around the sun

Yes, I'll make a resolution
That I'll never make another one
Just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun
Just enjoy this ride ...
Until it's done

^ Hadn't heard that one before.

Beautiful lyrics, Tiki. Seem perfect for the occasion.

Danced to this one last week. Family.

One child grows up to be Somebody that just loves to learn yeah
Another child grows up to be Somebody we just love to burn
Mom loves the both of them
You see it's in the blood, you see it's in the blood
Both kids are good to Mom
Blood's thicker than the mud, it's a family affair

I've always like this little snippet:

'and I'll make it all worthwhile

I'll make your heart smile'

-Depeche Mode, Strangelove

It's no secret.

One of my guilty TV pleasures is Burn Notice.

I love Tom Petty and this "story" was one of my favorites.





D'jya recognize Fionna (AKA - Margaret Tudor)?

How 'bout Joey?

You all have truly awful taste in music.

I'd post lyrics but they would be beyond the blatantly obvious shit posted here.

Why waste my time on the lyrically retarded agents of obviousness.

The lyrics quoted in this thread are as subtle as a fart under the duvet.

Typical american over emotional over obvious emotional tripe.
We need to punish the French, ignore the Germans and forgive the Russians - Condoleezza Rice.

Not a Bob Dylan fan I see.

I wondered if they wanted to film at the Viper Room?
