Title: Your favourite song - today
Post by: Amie on August 28, 2006, 02:43:26 PM
What song are you most enjoying listening to today?  Not your favourite of all time, just what you like the most today.

I'm really enjoying "Underwear goes inside the pants" by Lazy B.  Seldom does a pop song manage to be both amusing and politically correct. (and I like the background music too)

(edited to add link to lyrics, 'cos it sounds like maybe they aren't playing it in the US?:  http://www.shadowsofnothing.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32039  -- warning, these have adult lyrics)

(and then edited a second time several months later, 'cos after all this time I've finally got sufficiently irritated by having made a Ronseal reference to delete it).

ADDED BY NICK - This has become a very popular thread. Further additions are always welcome, but please do NOT include the entire lyrics of your chosen song, as this would be a breach of copyright and legally and morally unacceptable. If necessary, one or two lines of the song may be quoted, but no more than this. Thank you for your understanding - Nick (not wanting to be sued!)

I seriously enjoy Louder than Words, written for a musical show called Tick...Tick...BOOM! by Jonathon Larson, the guy who wrote Rent.
Tick...Tick...BOOM! never really took off, which is sad cuz it was a good show. But the song ROCKS!

 I haven't listened to any music today but I have been singing the theme song for Blues Clues without mercy!
 
We sat on down and figured it out
What blues Clues was all about
Hey you know what?
Your really smart

Deet deet deet.

This may sound strange, but I usually wake up each morning with a song in my head! And that song 'follows' me through the day...
today it was a T-Rex number 'Get it on'

I'm singing it in my head at the moment - 'Tonight' from West Side Story. No idea why! I'd be singing it out loud but everyone else has gone to bed.

I woke up this morning with "I Wish I was a Punk Rocker " by Sandi Thom in my head. Only yesterday I told a friend that I liked the words but didn't like her rendition of the song. It came to haunt me and today I like it. Weird.

I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair
In 77 and 69 revolution was in the air
I was born to lead into a world that doesn't care
I wish I was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair.

Those were good times..........Woodstock........Ashbury Park....

You know what I don't like about that song, and I'm sure she did it on purpose, but still:  punk rockers didn't have flowers in their hair.  They had nits and gobs of mucus and beer and hairgel.  Forgive me for being too literal :)

Hi Saturnine, I agree it's a strange combination and perhaps your comment that she wrote deliberately is valid. Furthermore I don't recall any significant revolutions in 69 and 77. Oliver
Title: Re: Your favourite song -- TODAY
Post by: Amie on August 29, 2006, 10:48:24 AM
Well, if we're gonna let her off for the flowers in the hair, I think we can let her off for the revolutions.  I mean, she only says they're "in the air", not that they're actively happening. (just to further nitpick, since I'm obviously obsessed with this song now, she actually says she was born "too late", not "to lead")

I'm sure Miss Thom will be relieved to have our blessing.  I wonder if she's met Macca yet?

Today's favourite song is still:  Underwear goes inside the pants.  Loyal or unimaginative, take your pick :)

Usually I would be saying something by nine inch nails but today for some reason the song that won't get out of my head is god's top ten by INXS (very pretty, very sappy, totally not my usual style).  Although now I'm going to have to listen to Creep by Radiohead again...

Hi Saturnine, sorry about the typo - it is in fact "too late" Does the spiked hair I see around me these days also contain nits, gobs of mucus, beer and hairgel or does one have to be a punk rocker to qualify? Mmmm.  :-\ Oliver
Title: Re: Your favourite song -- TODAY
Post by: Amie on August 30, 2006, 10:13:14 AM
Oh no, spiked hair today is an altogether more sanitary affair.  You can get it done at your local Vidal Sassoon. These young whippersnappers don't know they're born. 

(I never actually had spiked hair, so I guess I don't know I'm born either.  weird, floating around in the amniotic fluid like this while typing into the internet...)

   Uh oh... i must really be out of place then.  :)  I woke up this afternoon (I do the night shift so I sleep during the day  :) ) and the first song I heard was Celion Dion singing "Born To Fly".  Unfortunately it will not only stay in my head but will continue to grate on my nerves for what the song actually represents.  When Air Canada went through its restructuring phase upper management told the employees to dig deep as there was no money left in the kitty.  The majority of us coughed up more than 10 per cent of our pay and more than 40 per cent in benefits.  Somehow, after these 'sacrifices' were put into effect, managment found $40 million (U.S. funds) to pay Ms. Dion to sing this song as our new 'theme' song.  I did switch the radio off but I'd already heard to much.  LOL!!!  Ah well, the cost of doing big business I suppose.  (And also another motivational factor for me to get a best seller out there!  :) )

   Anyway, it's my least favourite tune but it's stuck there.  :(

   Have a truly wonderful and Blessed day, everyone!  :)

At the moment, I've got quite a few kicking around in my brain.

I live in a very musically eclectic household. :-\ But they are all awesome songs!

I have two titles today. I hope that's allowed....

For me it's "Yeke Yeke" by Mory Kante (club mix). It takes me back to some amazing times.

We also had several renditions of "Happy Birthday" because my youngest daughter is two today. Personally I hate the song and it's banned from my own birthdays, but today I guess it's allowed.

   "NP, it's supposed to be songs that you're enjoying, not ones that are driving you crazy!  Try to think of a song you like, to drive the evilness out of your head.  :) "

   You're absolutely right, Saturnine!  :)  I do hereby humbly apologize to the group for my faux pas in this regard.   :-[   If I may be permitted to begin again, I woke up today to a different song and mood.  When my gorgeous soulmate and I were married 14 years ago our first dance togher was to Natalie Cole doing the duet of "Unforgetable" with her father, Nat.  This was the song that greeted me today and has me smiling.  :)  The feeling could only be surpassed if Julia had actually consented this afternoon to dancing with me in the bedroom rather than making excuses to make an early dinner for the kids.  LOL!!!  :)

   Have a truly wonderful and Blessed day everyone!  :)

  p.s. Thanks again, Saturnine!  :)

Day of the Baphomets by The Mars Volta

People love to hate this band because they're so pretentious, but I love it.  Every new album, every impenetrable lyric*, every unexpected sound ("did they just change drum kits in mid-song?"), every over-long guitar segment, all the surpisingly effective (and well-hidden) melodies and hooks, the epic-ness of thier songs...it's all just one big mind-**** and I love them for it.

Some lyrics:

Nova meat
The prude slit whisper
Of bovine heaps
Strapped to unearth
Of mantis flowers
Prunefingers who tug
In a zealot's shroud
I will scald supreme truth
As it touches this house

I don't know if I'm breaking my own rules by changing my favourite song of the day (I've finished work early today and am trying to motivate myself to clean the house by listening to music)

anyway, I'll stay with the Smiths, but am changing my vote to (edit again:  "What difference does it make") -- reminds me of what it was like to be in my teens, and not with regret!  How funny to think that, in 1984, I thought Morrissey could see into my subconscious :)

...but as I work through the album, I must ask myself, can I really choose a favourite Smiths song?  Better choose a different genre...

(euw -- now I've realised that there's one Smith's song I've never liked, and that's "please please please, let me get what I want".  rubbish.  Oh but wait, that's not the theme of this thread, is it?  I'm procrastinating with the house cleaning now, aren't I?)

The song stuck in my head today, "It's a long way to the top if you want to rock n roll"  ACDC.

That would be my 4 year olds favorite song.  He was singing it on the way to school this morning.  His pre-school teacher commented how he doesn't like to sing.  I simply told her that he doesn't know any pre-school songs.  He likes ACDC, Nickleback, limited Metalica songs.  He doesn't know, "The Wheels on the Bus".

Oh, well.

"When I'm a ship tossed around on the waves
Up on a highwire that's ready to break
When I've had just about all I can take
Baby you, baby you save me
When I'm a bullet shot out of a gun
When I'm a firecracker coming undone
When I'm a fugitive ready to run, all wild-eyed and crazy
No matter where my reckless soul takes me
Baby you save me"

I was in my room and I was just like staring at the wall thinking about everything
But then again I was thinking about nothing
And then my mom came in and I didn't even know she was there she called my name
And I didn't even hear it, and then she started screaming: MIKE! MIKE!
And I go:
What, what's the matter
And she goes:
What's the matter with you?
I go:
There's nothing-wrong mom.
And she goes:
Don't tell me that, you're on drugs!
And I go:
No mom I'm not on drugs I'm okay, I was just thinking you know, why don't you get me a pepsi.
And she goes:
NO you're on drugs!
I go:
Mom I'm okay, I'm just thinking.
She goes:
No you're not thinking, you're on drugs! Normal people don't act that way!
I go:
Mom just give me a Pepsi please
All I want is a Pepsi, and she wouldn't give it to me
All I wanted was a Pepsi, just one Pepsi, and she wouldn't give it to me.
Just a Pepsi.

Two of them as usual: Feargal Sharkey - You little thief

Today my favourite song is the one I'm working on.  It's in my head quite strongly, so maybe it'll be a catchy one.  Depressing though - as most of my songs are!

Today I had a very long drive back from Stansted airport (traffic stopped for nearly two hours on the M4 due an accident).  I was all set to vote for "Count Grassi's Passage over Piedmont" as today's favourite (I love everything about that song, every last little thing), but I was swayed by a late entry Jacques Brel's version of "Les coeurs tendres"

Stansted?  Saturnine, you could have popped in for coffee and waited till that traffic jam eased (I'm about 25 mins from there).

M4 - when I was little we used to drive to Devon.  No M4 in those days (I am very, very old - well, at least I feel it today) and my parents had to put up with two fighting children in their car for the whole journey. 

Back to songs!  Just been listening to a Flemish band called Kadril.  Can't pronounce their song names, but they were good, anyway.

It's called Sunny Day and it's by a Japanese group called Laugh and Peace (or Laugh and Beats depending on what your source is, that's how obscure it is.
If you can find it, check it out.  If you happen to have a copy of Vib Ribbon for the PlayStation then you'll find it on that game.

It's called Hourglass - and that gives the clue. It's about hitting a deadline and having no inspiration showing up for a song but having to go with it anyway. Oh how familiar is that feeling as deadlines whoosh by!  ;D

I feel like I'm pounding on a big door
No one can hear me knocking
I feel like I'm falling flat to the floor
No one can catch me from falling

The hourglass has no more grains of sand
My watch has stopped, no more turning hands
The crew have abandoned ship
The lights are on but no one is in

Take it to the bridge, throw it overboard
See if it can swim, back up to the shore
No one's in the house, everyone is out
All the lights are on and the blinds are down

'So this is where he came to hide
when he ran from you
in a private detective's overcoat
and dirty dead man's shoes

The pretty things of Knightsbridge
lying for a minister of state
are a far cry from the nod and wink
here at traitor's gate

'Cause the high heel he used to be
has been ground down
and he listens to the footsteps that
would follow him around...

Man out of Time by Elvis Costello, absolutely brilliant and how true. Actually it must be because i'm watching Question Time at the moment.

I'm having a very Under Attack by ABBA moment right now.  It was the last single they recorded, and quite frankly, it's one of their best.  It sounds very New Wave, sort of like Video Killed the Radio Star, and every time I listen to it I think that it could quite easily have been their first single, not their last.

Today I'm quite enjoying "Rehab" by Amy Winehouse (nominative determinism perhaps?)

It's a bit strange that I like it, because it really annoyed me to hear he singing in an American accent initially (not that there's anything wrong with singing in an American accent if you're American, but she's English so it does seem a bit fake to have this big Motown thing going on.)

Since DaveC has mentioned Pink Floyd, I'll come clean and admit that at the moment I'm listening to Script For A Jester's Tear by Marillion.

I'm of the punk generation and for years I wouldn't go near anything to do with prog rock. Then just a couple of years ago I heard The Wall and from there the rot set in. A few months ago I even bought... oh no I can't say it, but I must... I bought Tales From Topographic Oceans. And I actually liked it.

Oh God, is there no hope for me?

A memorable moment for me was my recent trip to Australia.

Chris and I found ourselves in a terrific thunderstorm and we were sat outside on a balcony under a canopy eating our lunch.   The rain came down in torrents and I couldn't see further than a few meters across the harbour in this rather remote cove.  As the rain lightened and then torrented again there was music coming from a bar down below us. Very faint and barely audbile I heard the sounds of Sasha Distel
"Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head"

I've just inherited a very mixed collection of old tapes,some dating back to the 60s.  I'm running through them as I work.  Some are destined for wiping unheard ;-)

Maybe it's just my Geordie half, but today I've been 'ear-wormed' by Lindisfarne's Lady Eleanor.  I keep picturing a chopper motorcycle of the same name which appeared in - I think - BSH magazine.

Some of the old stuff sounds awful though.  Even nostalgia aint what it used to be ;-)

Love these lines:

For being such a stubborn woman, In such stubborn times
I have run from the arms of lovers, I have run from the eyes of friends
I have run from the hands of kindness, I have run just because I can.

Post by: Gyppo on February 18, 2007, 06:14:02 PM
Still ploughing through the collection of 'inherited' tapes and finding words to songs which I sometimes only ever heard once or twice when they were new.

Jethro Tull's Too old to Rock and Roll, Too Young to Die.  One of those records which 70's psychologists described as 'death Songs', tunes which glorified death and encouraged young men on motorcycles to go out and kill themselves.  Utter tosh in my opinion, I'm still here.  Many risks were taken, but the aim was always to survive, not to fail.

On the tape was a song called The Chequered Flag which I had never heard before, containing the lines...

'Isn't it grand
to be playing to the stand,
Dead or Alive'

Yes!  It is, and unlike many other performers, writers can still be 'playing to the stand' long after they've died.

...russ

Both are excellent 'night driving anthems', when you have the roads almost to yourself.   I once had a friend who became absolutely manic when driving to the sounds of This could be the last time by the Rolling Stones. He drove as if trying to make it come true. He took us straight off the road into a lay-by formed where they 'straightened' the original road.  A six foot drop and one hell of a thud.  Bent the chassis of the old Austin nearly two inches out of line, but we still managed to drive home.

He was one of those chaps with the reflexes of a cat and the luck of the devil.  Someone - or something - is clearly looking after him, even now some thirty years later.  About a year ago he had a high speed blow-out on the motorway and spun for many, many, many yards between two lines of traffic before stopping after gently clipping his rear against a lorry.

No speakers on the bike, so the tunes are only in my head.  Just as effective though, when the mania strikes.

Quick response then.  I take your point, Wizard.  As a character the devil isn't the most lucky.  But I have always interpreted it somewhat differently.  I assume the luck in question is a gift from the devil, as in selling your soul in return for success whilst alive.

I love "Love Today" too (also a bit of a Radio 1 nut). It doesn't beat "Grace Kelly" but still, good track. He's an unfeasibly beautiful man too, and I'm assuming by the fact he has a song with the lyric "big girls - you are beautiful" he's not actually gay.

Anyway, for me today it's Kaiser Chiefs and the fanastically varied line: "Ruby, Ruby, Ruby, Ruby."

I dunno - I'm sure you can find lots of gay odes to Marilyn Monroe or Diana Ross or (name your female gay icon).

anyhoo, straight or gay, he obviously wrote the song for me and owes me royalties ;)

Elton John sang 'Saturday Night's alright for fighting' but even when he was younger I could never truly picture him on the streets at closing time with a flick-knife or broken bottle in his hand ;-)

Hi Folks...

Those of you who shop at Asda may have noticed that the staff, to reach high shelves, sometimes stand on circular plastic stools, usually grey, which in Asda are known as 'Daleks'. So last night I was standing on a Dalek whilst re-stocking the Pop shelves, in a change from my usual role. One of the girls walked past the end of the aisle, and burst out laughing. As I looked towards her, she called the nearest 'colleague', and pointed me out.

"He's dancing!" she exclaimed.

I thought about this, and sure enough, I had been. Though I find it hard to figure out how I was managing a Waltz on the top of a plastic stool of eighteen inches diameter! Still, in honour of that, today's vote has got to go to 'On the Beautiful Blue Danube', by Strauss.

It's playing at the moment, it will probably be stuck in my head again tonight, so perhaps more dancing to come. But, in case I have to use a Dalek again, I'd better keep away from 'The Tritsch Tratsch Polka'!  ;D ;D

Dave.

Turned the radio on in the car and the station was playing Sacrifice by Elton John. Reached my destination, went for a walk, got back in the car to drive home. Turned the radio on (and to the same station) and as I did, the DJ literally said, 'And now Sir Elton John with Sacrifice!'

Either a strange coincidence or they'd got their play lists muddled up!

But it's a nice song.

Not a song, but relevant to the above...

I recall a party where we almost convinced a blonde to burn her bra whilst she was still wearing it, but some hidden spark of self preservation made her take it outside and burn it on the clotheline.  It burnt well, but I can't recall it making her any more liberated ;-)

Then one of the lads - well lubricated with good alcohol - decided to burn some of the othr bras which were already hanging on the line.  Not realising they were damp from the night time dew.  He spent several minutes with his Ronson lighter on high flame like a miniature dragon until the gas ran out.  the net result was a very slight scorching of one 'racy' red and black number, and a very badly scorched thumb which he never even noticed until the next day when the booze wore off.

To keep this vaguely on topic it's a pretty safe bet that Steppenwolf were playing somewhere in the background...  Born To Be Wild.  Plus other tunes from the 'Easyrider' soundtrack.  The scenery and music from that film were brilliant, even though Peter Fonda should have been slowly torn apart between two Puch Maxi's for crimes against aesthetics.

Bryan, you made me reach for the 'old tape' box ;-)

CCR - Bad Moon Rising (or Luna nefasta as it says on the bilingual tape box) is currently exercising my neighbour's auditory apparatus, whether they like it or not.  From the album 'Green River'.  One of the 'anthems' from my youth.  (Came as a shock to realise it is only 2 minutes and 17seconds long, so I played it three times to savour the nostalgia.)  The whole tape's not much more than 30 minutes.  This may explain why I used to be so damned thin, always having to get up and change the tapes over ;-)

What song are you most enjoying listening to today?  Not your favourite of all time, just what you like the most today.

I'm really enjoying "Underwear goes inside the pants" by Lazy B.  Seldom does a pop song manage to be both amusing and politically correct. (and I like the background music too)

(edited to add link to lyrics, 'cos it sounds like maybe they aren't playing it in the US?:  http://www.shadowsofnothing.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32039  -- warning, these have adult lyrics)

(and then edited a second time several months later, 'cos after all this time I've finally got sufficiently irritated by having made a Ronseal reference to delete it).

I've been playing an old Dylan album lately "Another side of Bob Dylan" (I have them all) and the song I can't get out of my head today is "Ramona", I'ts there now as I write this. If ever I can't write I put Dylan on for inspiration, stuff from as early as 'Pawn in the game' etc to 'Modern Times', hoping some of his genius will rub off on me - must be doing something wrong - maybe I need to rub a genie or something.

"Dancing in the moonlight"

The great thing about that song is that you can replace dancing with other words that end in “ing” and the lyrics work just as well.

Try it.  :D

My song for today is:

“I am a man of constant sorrow” by the Soggy Bottom Boys.

You probably have to be a fan of “Oh Brother Where art Thou” to really appreciate it.

I’m playing it and singing along now (not doing the dance though!) “. . . and you may learn to love another, while I’m sleeping in my grave. . .”  :o

It has to be the new Shaun Kingston (forgive my spelling of his name) song.  Not sure what it is called but some of the lyrics are "you're too beautiful" and "I'm suicidal".
It is a bit reggae and the video of it seems to flashback to the fifties rock and roll era.  The tune is very catchy and my daughter has it has her ringtone on her mobile.

I have never heard of "weapon of choice" or was that just a comment on the song I suggested?  Maybe I have heard it but can't recall it at the moment.  My brain just is not working tonight.  Can you enlighten me please?
I love any song really but some just stick in your head and you can't get them out.  I found myself singing at a bus stop a few weeks ago "MacArthur Park" all because this lorry went past me with a big sign saying MacArthur Constructions or something or other.  Then because I was singing it out loud, I might add, I started to think what on earth was that song all about.
Does anyone else do this sort of daft thing or is it just me? :-[

The Lobster Song

It's a Royal Navy messdeck song, as performed at the various 'Sod's Operas' by drunken and shameless matelots.  I've never heard of it being recorded and I only learned it in bits and pieces from my Dad.  It's outrageous but funny and he would never have sung it in front of my Mum.

Sometimes it just pops back into my head out of nowhere.  Today is such a day.

Or, alternatively, a junior pupil used as an unpaid servant and 'whipping boy' by the Senior Boys at English 'Public' Schools, which are in fact "Rather private and somewhat expensive, doncha know" despite the curious misnomer.

And 'bumming a fag' means to scrounge/beg a cigarette ;-)  I can't recall the last time I heard anyone use this expression.

Pardon the extra post, but this song has been driving me crazy for some time now. Are there any French speakers out there who can give me a general translation of the song "Les Yeux Ouverts"?

I just love the song but don't know what the woman is saying. For all I know she's telling me to go jump in a lake. The way she sings it though, I probably would... beautiful song.

see the cracks.
You can make me perfect again.

Hmm... It came to my mind about twenty years ago, one winter's day as I was kicking steps in a snow slope on an ascent of Scafell Pike. I was watching a spider at the time. What was a spider doing on a snow field at 2000+ feet on the sixth of January?

It's amazing what thoughts a nice Glenmorangie 15yr old malt can bring to mind... ;D ;D ;D

Ah, wow, Debs...the memory this brought back! My girlfriend of twelve years ago was of a similar mind. I jumped in the car one morning, fired it up, and the tape began to play Diana Ross, 'When you tell me that you love me'.  ;D

As for my 'favourite' song for today, I'm not going to say. It's been on and off my mind for a few weeks now, but if I name it, it might drop me in the proverbial. So I'll name it in a couple of weeks. I will chance saying that it's by Donovan.  (Oldies will know who I mean... ;D)

Curently playing Blood Brothers, which is from 1995.  Only twelve years old.

Today, having just heard it on Classic FM, it will no doubt be the

Adagio from the Karellia suite by Sibelius.

A superb piece of music, as deserving of full volume as any 'heavy metal' chune...

For those who can't place it, if you're old enough to remember the current affairs program 'World in Action', it was the original theme music...

Although this song has been recorded by Celine Dione, the choir that my two daughters belong to does a much better version.  Espcially when you consider all the hard work that goes into getting children to sing in a second language.  If I can ever figure my comp out enough, I'll post a version for everyone to listen to.  (p.s.

Come on Eileen by Dexies Midnight Runners has had me tapping my foot and singing snatches of it since I heard it a couple of hours ago.  So, a late entry for tune of the day, but it will see me through until I log off.

I would also like to nominate Springsteen's Born to Run and Dancing In The Dark for 'Dave the Donkey Walloper' as he straddles his beast and starts chasing his headlight just after midnight on the way to his breakfast appointment in Paris.  (Remember the 'Foreign Devils' drive on the wrong side, Dave.)

Different song, Dave ;-)  Fog on The Tyne does indeed contain the lines you quoted, but there is also another Lindisfarne song called We Can Swing Together about an all night party which is raided by the police, and contains the lines...

"...then they broke down all the doors
and kicked some windows in,
let their doggies off their leads
and ransacked everything.
Stood us all against the wall
their faces split with grins..."  And no more to avoid upsetting the copyright police ;-)

There is also another song that strikes a chord with my writing self associated with that city.
You'll never walk alone


" When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm
Is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone"


Of course, there is another reason I like it.

Its funny, I was in London looking after my young grandson 9 and an old top of the pops came on showing T-REX and they were playing 'Get it on'.......
when I put grandson to bed he went up the stairs in front of me and he was singing,
'Get it on, get it on, get it on, get it on'! ;D

Donovan?  I remember a song of his called - I think - Sun and Sand, which starts with the lines;
"The sun was going down behind the tattooed trees
and the simple act of an oar stroke put diamonds in the sea."

(I'll have to visit one of those 'lyrics' sites and try to track down the rest of it now.)

No favourite song today, unless I can find the Suzanne Vegas tape containing Gypsy.  That would suit my mood perfectly, a feeling that I'm on the brink of change.  If not Dylan's Tambourine Man would do quite nicely.  I don't know about 'the natives' but I'm bloody restless tonight ;-)

My personal favorite Gypsy song.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56AygasQZx4&feature=related (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56AygasQZx4&feature=related)

Written by Stevie Nicks.

Gypsy

So I'm back, to the velvet underground
Back to the floor, that I love
To a room with some lace and paper flowers
Back to the gypsy that I was


I'm very sorry but I've had to delete most of this, as reproducing the lyrics of a whole song would be a breach of the writer's copyright. Short extracts are probably just about OK under the "Fair Use" convention, but song lyrics, like poems, do enjoy copyright protection. Although I know lyrics do get reproduced (illegally) elsewhere on the net, as MWC is a writers' forum I believe we must maintain the highest standards where copyright issues are concerned. Hope you understand - Nick

Thank you Nick. I just came back to do that myself. I only intended to place an extract. My apologies folks. :-[

Bryan,

I've just dug out the Dubliner's CD and reminded myself about Carrickfergus ;-)

But for the time being Tambourine Man is still winning in my head, and is in fact slowly being replaced by My Green Tambourine, by either The Byrds or The Lemon Pipers.  I can't remember which and don't even have an old tape; this one is entirely in my head.

Without looking on a lyrics site...  Just trawling through the possibly misheard memories...

...When Jessamine goes
a part of me knows
I'm not really living,
a butterfly child
so free and so wild
and so full of giving.

What can you say,
when a girl doesn't want to stay?...

Not a song, but a tune.

The Devil's Gallop (The Can-Can tune.)  Heard it in the wireless this morning and it's been haunting me all day.

Sabre Dance is another tune which can have this effect.  My brain would probably explode with indecision if I heard them both on the same day ;-)

I don't think it would appeal, but it would probably be absolutely hysterical.  I'm imaging it now, sung in that same growly voice which sang Wandering Star .

I once heard a lass with a lovely voice singing a parody version as she slouched around with her hand to her head, miming a hangover.  "I feel Shitty..."

Well, my best day isn't that great.

If I recall, on my best day I sang "Razzle Dazzle" at an audition. The casting guy said it was the best of the lot.
I didn't get the part because I'd spent so long learning the song that I forgot to rehearse the spoken part [doh.]

Yellow Submarine by The Beatles.

Not the best of tunes, but, if unleashed at the right point in a drunken party, has a similar effect to Jeff Becks Hi Ho Silver Lining, or that other bloody thing about Amarillo.

Yellow Submarine always remind me of a thoroughly drunk, particularly loud, and fairly obnoxious Scouser roaming around a campsite in the small hours, unzipping tent flaps and inviting everyone to join him in his spirited (in more ways than one!) rendering/rending of Yellow Sumbarine.

Yeah.  But, as the magistrate told the 'Flasher' "You mustn't take it out on innocent parties."

Today's favourite tune, because I'm temporarily stuck in a time warp...

Ratrap by the Boomtown Rats

But if I can find the right box of old tapes it's going to rattle the neighbours windows for a while with Smoke On The Water.  And for those who know/recall the lyrics...  Yes, I've got a flare-gun ;-).

I spent some time trying to think of a song with a title along the lines of: "Ooooh...now that's just  too bloody scary." I couldn't, but one that came to mind was 'Lost for words' by Pink Floyd. A couple of lines:


'To martyr yourself to caution, is not gonna help at all,
'cos there'll be no safety in numbers, when the right one walks out of the door.'

That's what I did eighteen years back; I aint in a hurry to repeat the procedure!  ;D

I had one of those 'flashback' moments today... I was out driving, with Radio 2 playing. But it was a bad reception area, so it had been off for a while. As I pulled out of a junction, I must have driven through a sneaky bit of signal, as I got:

'Marie,Marie, the Voodoo God; she'll put a spell on you...'

Blimey, straight back to 1971; ah, what memories!  ;D So 'Redbone' and 'The Witch Queen of New Orleans' has been my favourite for today...

I would whole heartedly agree, if it wasn't for the fact that there are excellent guitar riffs inhabiting much of Floyd's music. Hard to choose a favourite...

Ah, but 'Off the Wall' really do do a very acceptable 'cover' of it. Shut your eyes and it really could be Gilmour playing...

Favourite song for today? Well, I've got to 'pop the question' (no, not that question!) to Linda soon, so I guess another Floyd choon, 'Lost for Words' is appropriate!

To martyr yourself to caution, is not gonna help at all; 'cos there'll be no safety in numbers, when the right one walks out of the door.'

Dancing In The Dark

"...I aint nothing but tired..." has felt horribly appropriate for the last few days.  It's cyclic and before long the line "...this gun's for hire' will have it's usual resonance again.

"Get up every morning..."  One of the lads at the bakery used to play it on the old tape deck first thing every morning as his 'wake up anthem' when he came in.  The boss hated it, but he was a good boss and appreciated that it got the lad 'fired up for work' even if he still looked like 'a Zombie on Mogadon'.

Ah, 'Israelites'... ;D I've been toying with the idea of compiling a list of 'oldies' associated with girls I've known through my miss-spent youth. 'Israelites' is firmly cemented to the memory of my first girlfriend. It lasted all of two weeks, we were both too young, but the memory of the first evening we had together has stayed with me. The first time I built up the courage to put my arm around a girl; the first hug and cuddle, the first kiss. And the first time I'd really looked in to a girl's eyes. They were a beautiful,almost iridescent blue. Maybe that's why I like blue eyes...

That was in 1969. I met the girl again, by chance, in 1990. We actually worked at the same place, though she didn't recognise me for who I was (though I did her!). As it turned out, we both went on holiday to the same campsite at Sennen in Cornwall. I was walking to the shower block one morning when she walked past me. I didn't have my contact lenses in, so didn't notice her, but after we'd passed, she stopped and said 'Earby Light?' (The place we worked). I stopped and had a natter with her, but she didn't mention 1969.

Later in the week I happened to bump in to her in the shop in Sennen Cove. We had another natter, and I mentioned our short spell together years before. She did vaguely remember. By chance I looked deeply in to her eyes again, and was immediately transported back to that first night on the old railway station. She'd changed during that twenty-one years, but her eyes were still as blue and sparkling as ever.

Thanks for that memory FF, and following that line, my suggestion for today is

'Resurrection Shuffle'; Ashton, Gardiner and Dike. I can still see the girl in question on the dance floor, 'making a 'V' sign like she just don't care'... ;D. A girl, strangely enough, called Linda...

Dave.

Well, after months of trying to find it on iTunes, (Don't know why I couldn't!), I've finally found one of the best tunes ever written. So once the download has finished, I'll be donning the headphones, and drifting off in to a world of memories invoked by:

 Mike Oldfield: Tubular Bells.

 Mike Oldfield: Tubular Bells.

Dave.

Ah, the famous Tubular Balls.

I've still got it on one of those huge flat round black things with a spiral groove on each side.  One of these days - when the price is right - I'm going to buy one of those USB record decks and play all the old stuff which is safely hiding away in a dust-shrouded cupboard.

I rather liked his song 'On horseback', which came, I think, from an album called 'Hergest Ridge' (It had a sailplane on the cover), and contained the following rather evocative lines...

"But when the thunder's in my brain,
I'd rather be on horseback."

Hi Gyppo,

Nup, that song was/is on 'Ommadawn', his third album. Tell you what, if you ever do get that USB deck, gimme a shout; I'll send you a USB Flash Drive or a CD and you can do me a copy of the original; the version I've just got doesn't have that wonderful drunken 'Sailors Hornpipe' with Viv Stanshall stomping around the manor at three o'clock in the morning... ;D

I found it on an album at work last night, but I've just found it's three pounds cheaper on iTunes. Just got to check the bank balance, then I'll be downloading 'the Very best of Deep Purple' especially for 'Demon's Eye'.  Superb choon!  ;D

Title: Re: Your favourite song - today
Post by: DC on April 23, 2008, 08:25:29 AM
Heehee, Boz Scaggs, 'Lido Shuffle'  ;D

Yeah, songs take me back to a time and place...

I actually came to realise just what a 'flashback' is due to a song a few years ago. Back in '89 I had a climbing partner, Linda. As well as climbing partners, we were very good friends, and it's no secret on here that I fell madly in love with her. Christmas '89, and I had to move off campus for the vacation, so I arranged to 'borrow' the house she was living in.
Instead of going home straight away at the end of term, she stayed behind for a few days to be with me. We had a few nights out, and at the end of the last one, arriving back from the pub, she put some music on, and we laid out on the floor listening to it. It was a very emotionally charged time for me. After the vacation, I asked her to make a tape of the album she'd been playing that night.
About nine years ago,  ten years or so since I last saw or heard from her, I came across the tape during a 'clear out'. I decided to play it, having not heard it for many years. As the first three or four notes of Simply Red's 'It's only Love' played, for a few milliseconds, I was back in that house with Linda. I could feel the cold, (we couldn't afford to put the heating on at the time), I could smell the curry that we'd had for tea earlier that evening; I could feel and scent her presence next to me, just inches away to my left...

For those few milliseconds it was so physically real, I realised just how scary flashbacks can be. I was just glad that this was a happy one...

Well, bitter-sweet, at least.

Dave.

P.S. Hmm, Bread and 'It don't matter to me' would be quite   very appropriate for Linda, really...

'Smoke on the water, fire in the sky..' Deep Purple. If I remember right, a hotel they were staying in in Japan burned down; there were rumours at the time that one of them had started it..

Have I seen Linda since? Sadly, no. I came across her on a website about a year ago, but Gyppo talked a bit of sense in to me when I was thinking of making contact. Eighteen years is a long time...  :(

Dave.  I can't believe I cocked up on All The Young Dudes. ;-)  First sign of Old Age ;-(

I was thinking  Mott the Hoople, but my fingers typed Mungo Jerry.

My little Sis had a denim jacket with 'Mott the Hoople' and 'Speed Kills' embroidered on the back.

I think the story about 'Smoke On The Water' was set in Switzerland.  I read (possibly on some sleeve notes) that Deep Purple only had a few days of temporary work permit,and a mobile recording unit, because the Swiss weren't too keen on having those 'Rock Hooligans' in their country.  As Dave said - and the song - says, "Some stupid with a flare-gun, burned the place to the ground..."  Their roadie, one Claude Nobbes(?), earned a lot of praise for rescuing people.  In order to make their live recording another venue had to be found in a hurry...

"We ended up at the Grand Hotel, it was empty cold and bare...

"No matter what we get out of this, I know we'll never forget...  Smoke on the water..."

When my daughter gets a phonecall from her partner, from the ICU van of our Fire and rescue Service it always plays "Smoke On The Water.  That way she knows he's on 'a shout' even if he doesn't get a chance to talk.

No favourite tune yet today, haven't even had the radio on.  (Busy, Busy, too damned Busy.)

Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention were playing the gig at the time of the incident, when some stupid fired a flare at the ceiling of the casino.The casino on the banks of Lake Geneva burnt down.Deep purple were camped nearby with the Rollings' lasted gadget, a mobile recording studio, from were DP were making their lastest LP.  Story's in the song, and i'm a has-been-around-abit old hippy who's heard it a zillion times while watching the "chicks" dance,  and I supped on me pint.

Congrats, rhea!  My wife and I had the pleasure of attending a concert, a number of years ago, by The Commodores where they sang that song and couples were welcome to dance in front of the stage.  We were very surprised when Lionel actually came down off the stage and had a live chat with us and another couple immediately after the song.  It was realy nicely done and a memory we cherish to this day.  Great song, rhea!  :)

If we're talking ABBA, then Fernando strikes a chord even now.

Sometimes the message we take from a song isn't quite what the songwriter had in mind.  I don't think of revolution, just an old poaching buddy who gave up his guns, many, many years ago ;-)

I woke up today remembering my Higher English finals, which I sat an unmentionable number of years ago. There was a question that began with a quote from a song by Elvis Costello, and that immediately got me singing Good Year for the Roses right through my exam.
Today my brain said 'English finals' and two seconds later it geared into: 'What a good year for the roses....'
I couldn't get the damn song out of my head after that.
Note: This was after asking myself: 'Are my phantom tonsil pains tooth-related, or something more sinister?' (see under 'first thought of the day' thread) :)

"Comme d'habitude", Claude François .  ( translation of title; As Usual )

Claude wrote and sung this French classic, then Paul Anka changed the words to an english song (My Way is not a translation) and gave it to Frank Sinatra. Unfortunately Claude tried to change a light bulb while standing a filled bath tube and died. Great song without which we would never have had the other great song and it's many covers.

Nazareth.  ((I think... but the old 'home compilation party tape' with faded handwritten titles doesn't confirm this)

Nazareth, indeed.  She used to be a girl of simple pleasures...  Great song.

I'm really enjoying the whole powaqaatsi soundtrack by Philip Glass (well, except for the first track, which is a bit twee). I think today CAUGHT! is my favourite ;D

This is the kind of music I'd like to write, if I wrote music. I used to hear stuff like this in my head, before I got a bit more sane :) - the only bad thing is that it's too catchy and invigorating - I can't concentrate on my work when listening to it. So...  I guess I'll have to shut it off for now and get back to work (but still it races and thrums along in my head - arrgh!!! ;D )

I'd like to have seen that ;-)  I've never danced with a stick, but I've jumped over and ducked under on many occasions.  Whenever I taught quarterstaff combat it was nearly always outdoors.  People are quite good at judging sideways limits, but overheads catch them out, especially those with the inbuilt tendency to bounce on tiptoe.  We used seven and a half foot staves outdoors, and four-footers indoors during our nightclub gladiator act, and even then the spotlights etc were at some risk...

I remember Kraftwerk ;-)  They did a thing called Autobahn.  The first time I heard it I was fascinated, the second time I really liked it.  The third time...  Well, lets just be kind and say it went rapidly downhill in my estimation after that.  Fortunately an accurately lobbed lump of dough or pastry could dislodge the rather loose power cord on the radio without having to cross the room.  Kraftwerk earned a higher degree of 'hits' than any other group/band I can recall from night shifts.  I was really pissed off the night some joker had fitted batteries as well and it just kept on playing after a brief pause ;-)  Strange folks, Night Crews, twelve hours adrift from 'normality'...

if you mean really listen as in hearing the words instead of the 'easy listening' style, then the answer is yes, sometimes.

But I'm just as likely to be inspired by Vivaldi's 'Rites of Spring', the Stranglers "No More Heroes', a fine thundereous rendition of the 1812 overture, Sibelius's 'Findlandia', some bit of boisterous folk music, or a Gypsy ballad.

Moondance - Van Morrison

...I shall go out to the stone circle around the garden burn pile tomorrow and imagine that I am some place more exotic... ;)

Going on the last time I went I shall probably be cutting plastic sheet and making emergency 'plastic and duct tape ponchos' for my little band of pilgrims as we stand in the pouring rain waiting for the sun to rise.  (If it ever does...)  Sometimes I'll swear it peeps over the horizon, sees about thirty thousand hippies and assorted weirdoes waiting, and ducks down again in an agony of stage fright until it can hide behind a thick bank of cloud.
   
On another occasion I had my shirt undone nearly all night, and only at about 3:30 am did I even consider rolling my sleeves down.  That time there was a chap wandering around all night wearing nothing but a cowboy hat and boots (and a beaming stoned smile), I've no idea why.  And a little bald-headed fellow wandering about in a see-through white dress, with no underclothes, and a pair of little white fairy wings on his back.  Once again, no idea why.  Compared to folks like these my bunch are boringly straight.

Well it's not quite true; she never smoked anything, and I was off the 'funy things' at the time. And the bit by the lake never happened (though it might have been close at Llyn Idwal  :o), but it sums up perfectly in spirit just what 1989 was like for me.

'All Summer Long'; Kid Rock.

Back Street Luv

by

Curved Air

Found this old classic on YouTube

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03qjZ7gDL7g&feature=related

Not their best tune (I think either Stretch or Propositions vie for that title, but probably the best of their offerings on YouTube.  Hotly pursued by Vivaldi.  I saw this lot live at Southhampton Guildhall 'way back when'.  Sonja looked a lot thinner live than she does on video ;-)  I think I can honestly say she was my first 'celebrity lust'.  It was so nice to find a lass up front who wasn't a bloody blonde.

Roaming the web later I found a 'dance mix' version of Back Street Luv which, in my not-so-humble opinion, should be taken out and shot...  Slowly... ;-(

I still have the original on vinyl, both as a single and as an LP track.

And they've re-formed.  You can't keep a good Hippy down ;-)

Lily Allen's "GWB (F&*k you very much)"

Never was a Lily Allen fan, but this one changes all that!



do you get, do you get a little kick out of being small-minded?
you want to be like your father
it’s approval you’re after
well that’s not how you’ll find it

do you, do you really enjoy living a life that’s so hateful
cause there’s a hole where your soul should be
you’re losing control of it
and it’s really distasteful

F**k you, f**k you very very much
cause we hate what you do
and we hate your whole crew
so please don’t stay in touch

"I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song"

  Written, sung and recorded by Jim Croce
Title: Re: Your favourite song - today
Post by: Gyppo on October 25, 2008, 04:12:30 PM
That's triggered a memory of a song I only ever heard a couple of times on late night radio, also by the late Jim Croce.  One of those quiet numbers that slips under your defences and brands itself into your brain without you really noticing the first time.

I think it was called 'Time in a bottle', it certainly contains the line "If I could put time in a bottle..."

I'll have a look on YouTube later.

"Gassenhauer " 

Though often credited to Carl Orff, an adaptation of the original Hans Neusiedler (1536) tune was made by Gunild Keentman in his collaboration with Orff in the "Schulwerk".
Various adaptations have been used in famous films, my favourite being genius director Terence Malik's  "Badlands", and Tony Scott's "True Romance".

I share here link with a few versions to listen too, if your not already familiar with it.Tell me if this isn't up lifting ?!?! Enjoy !

I have most of the above songs on an old audio tape which got itself chewed by the machine.  I keep meaning to cut out the 'pleated bit, splice the undamaged stuff, and make a copy of what's left.  It's amazing what you can do with a dab of superglue, a sharp craft knife and someone you don't like a bit of patience ;-)  Plus a 'salvage cassette'.

Walking round... is a bit of a classic ;-)

Look what they've done to my song, Ma by Melanie Safka.

Until today I have never seen a picture of Melanie, not even a 'still'.  She was just a haunting and unusual voice from my past.  Normally when I see old video/film footage of others who were 'just a voice' it doesn't mesh with my mental images.

To my immense surprise the pictures were nearly the same as in my head.

Also Ruby Tuesday, still reaches the parts that very few singers can reach.

With a few subtle variation in the lyrics I used to sing this one as a teenager, and a good few years later it was an occasional part of my lullaby repertoire when my daughter couldn't/wouldn't sleep.  It made a change from poaching songs and sea shanties.

I know that one, Dad used to sing it.

When my daughter came in from playing outside, desperate for a pee, skipping from one foot to the other and trying to keep her legs crossed at the same time I once broke into a chorus of "Skip to the loo and she laughed so much she nearly didn't make it.  I'd almost forgotten this memory, but suddenly it came rushing back in a full colour mental replay ;-)

In the context of a 'skipping' child it was just irresistible.  My wife laughed as well, but added "If your daugjhter pees on the floor, you clean it up."  Funny how she was always 'your daughter' if she did anything wrong.

Not so funny at all Gyppo. It's quite simple, really.
If a child does something good, it's always Mum's merit, and as soon as she does anything wrong, it's always Dad's fault.

I have several but just recently I've gotten into the "Muppet Treasure Island" soundtrack. I don't have it but I plug my Itouch into my computer and play vids from Youtube that have the songs that I like.

"Shiver me Timbers" and "Professional pirate" are my faves. I also love the movie and plan on getting the movie and soundtrack from amazon sometime soon.

What song are you most enjoying listening to today?  Not your favourite of all time, just what you like the most today.

I'm really enjoying "Underwear goes inside the pants" by Lazy B.  Seldom does a pop song manage to be both amusing and politically correct. (and I like the background music too)

(edited to add link to lyrics, 'cos it sounds like maybe they aren't playing it in the US?:  http://www.shadowsofnothing.com/forum/showthread.php?t=32039  -- warning, these have adult lyrics)

(and then edited a second time several months later, 'cos after all this time I've finally got sufficiently irritated by having made a Ronseal reference to delete it).

ADDED BY NICK - This has become a very popular thread. Further additions are always welcome, but please do NOT include the entire lyrics of your chosen song, as this would be a breach of copyright and legally and morally unacceptable. If necessary, one or two lines of the song may be quoted, but no more than this. Thank you for your understanding - Nick (not wanting to be sued!)

Hi Joe,

With you there. I would have given anything to be in Central Park. I watch the DVD regularly. Being raised in South Africa I missed a lot of great musical happenings. I would have traded in a few years of my life to have been at Woodstock.

I did catch up in later years when travelling. I tried to see all the bands of my youth in Britain and U.S.A. even though they had aged some.

I tripped over this one much earlier this morning whilst looking for something else.  As in physically tripped over, not in the Hippy sense of the word.   At first it amused me, as it had when first heard on thr radio many years ago.  But when I listened to it a second time it felt as if it was drawing me in.  Rather uncomfortable.  Maybe it was the addition of video to the words...

Then I played the 'flipside', which is really strange.

i particulary like her work from that era, the nineteen eighties.Yet i felt it ironic because of the use of the picture used for the album cover back then and the now situation of Woolworths which has goin' once, goin' twice, goin' gone' !

My today's favourite choice is same lass Nanci Griffith different song, and because i feel right in the mood for a "Spin On a Red Brick Floor" toniieete,and  a buss on the cheek from all my old lovers again ( if only).

The earphones were not inserted in my ears today, but yesterday I listened to Nena's "Willst Du Mit Mir Gehn?", and before it reached its final second I pushed the back-play button. I did that several times. Its a poppy-disco song but its cheerfully catchy, so it was not a waste: it kept my mood up, and I should have danced ::)

"The Old Church Yard".

They've come along way, and grown up too, since doing  a backing track for the "Oh Brother where art thou" film and the Down From The Mountain documentary. Some great albums they have released with many favourite tracks, this is just one.

Pretty much anything from their 2003 album Damnation is superb, but this one gets me every time. I'm giving it a rest at the moment and cranking some Rush instead, but absence makes the heart grow fonder :).

I'm not sure what the general opinion is here re: music while writing. For me it's an enjoyable and necessary gateway between realities.

Every time I hear that song, I think of my buddy's party room at his house in 1978. There was an oversized speaker in every corner. Six milk crates full of albums, a stack of amplifiers with a turntable on top, one McDonalds tray for preping buds and a water pipe. Oh, and four brass monkeys holding hands, hanging from the ceiling with a brass crescent moon incense burner.

"This may sound strange, but I usually wake up each morning with a song in my head!" - Ellie.

Not strange to me, but rather than it being on constant repeat all day, I'm bombarded by small segments of it for about ten minutes after I wake up. After that it's business as usual.

It's more annoying than it sounds though, since it's rarely a song I like!

Anyone else do drugs here?

I like the Pina Colada song! If you listen to the lyrics, it's sweet. A couple have been together for ages and he's a bit bored with her so he responds to a personal ad from a lady looking for a bit of excitement. They arrange to meet and it turns out his girlfriend wrote the ad. They realise things were getting stale and they work on it. See? Go and listen to it properly. Go on, off you go. Meanwhile, I shall think of a song for tomorrow that might meet your approval.  ;)

I've been listening to Desolation Row by Bob Dylan quite a lot lately-

Einstein, disguised as Robin Hood
With his memories in a trunk
Passed this way an hour ago
With his friend, a jealous monk
He looked so immaculately frightful
As he bummed a cigarette
Then he went off sniffing drainpipes
And reciting the alphabet
Now you would not think to look at him
But he was famous long ago
For playing the electric violin
On Desolation Row

If ever there was a record guaranteed to produce an insane all-encompassing all-devouring homicidal rage in anyone who is already happy, this is such a record.  It supasses even Johnny Reggae by The Piglets, and that's a tough act to follow.

Now here's a happy hedonistic tune...
