"Put on my blue suede shoes and
Boarded the plane.
Touched down in the land of the delta blues
In the middle of the pouring rain.
W.C Handy. Won't you look down over me.
Yeah, I got a first class ticket.
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

When I'm walking in Memphis.
I was walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale.
Walking in Memphis.
Do you really feel the way I feel?"

"Well the Ukraine girls really knock me out,
They leave the West behind,
And Moscow girls make me sing and shout,
That Georgia's always on m-m-my mind!
Oh, come on

You don't know how lucky you are, boys
Back in the USSR! "

If you ever plan to motor west,
Travel my way, take the highway that is best.
Get your kicks on Route sixty-six.

It winds from Chicago to LA,
More than two thousand miles all the way.
Get your kicks on Route sixty-six.

Now you go through Saint Louie
Joplin, Missouri,
And Oklahoma City is mighty pretty.
You see Amarillo,
Gallup, New Mexico,
Flagstaff, Arizona.
Don't forget Winona,
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernandino.

Won't you get hip to this timely tip:
When you make that California trip
Get your kicks on Route sixty-six.

Frozen lakes on Mars
Red fiery star, god of war
Blood stained archon in the sky
Far beyond the reach of those again

From the west, from the east
Burning red, terror completely
To watch the throne, cranial vent volcano
Upon this temple gave out of all who came
This impending cranium

Mechanicsburg, Mechanicsburg,
Welcome to Mechanicsburg!
There's no finer city from
St. Petersburg to Rome.

Mechanicsburg, Mechanicsburg,
The loveliest we've ever heard of,
Jewel of Europa and
The place where we call home.

How mighty are her mighty walls,
How shiny are her clanks,
How beautiful her dairy farms,
And for her cheese we all give thanks.

How glorious her Hospital
Which helps folk far and near,
Bill and Barry Heterodyne
Built it for us here.

Mechanicsburg, Mechanicsburg,
Welcome to Mechanicsburg,
We thank you so for visiting,
With every erg and ohm.

Mechanicsburg, Mechanicsburg,
The greatest burg we've ever heard of,
Jewel of Europa and

"Even old New York was once New Amsterdam
Why they changed it I can't say
People just liked it better that way

That's nobody's business but the Turks"

In deed it was. The version by They Might Be Giants is the one I remember from when I grew up, though, so that's why I mentioned them.

Anyone up for a new topic?

Same here. TMBG are my era as well!! :smallwink:

On the side of a mountain lives a man of nature, a man of peace
He got no food and no money
And he's waiting for his merciful release
Works his fingers to the bone
Just to make it through the winter snows
He's got nothing to do and no one to do it to
And he wonders where the buffalo goes
But what do I get when I say to his face?
Let me take you to a better place

Wild horses wouldn't drag me there
Wild horses wouldn't make me care
I know where I belong
And I've been here too long
Wild horses wouldn't drag me there
Wild horses wouldn't make me care
I know where I belong
And I've been here too long

"It was just an old hand-me-down ford,
With 3 speed on the column,
And a dent in the door.

A young boy, 2 hands on the wheel,
I can't replace the way it made me feel,
And I would press that clutch, and I'd keep it right,
He'd say 'a lil' slower son you're doin' just fine'
Just a dirt road with trash on each side,
But I was Mario Andretti
When daddy let me drive!"

In the shuffling madness
Of the locomotive breath,

Headlong to his death

Steam breaking on his brow
Thank God he stole the handle and
The train won't stop going
No way to slow down

I drove my tractor through your haystack last night.
Ooh aah ooh aah!
I threw me pitchfork at your dog to keep quiet.
Ooh aah ooh aah!
Now something's telling me,
That you'm avoiding me.
Come on now darling you've got something I need!

Cuz I got a brand new combine harvester,
An' I'll give you the key.
Come on now let's get together,
In perfect harmony.
I got twenty acres,
An' you got forty-three.
Now I got a brand new combine harvester,
An' I'll give you the key.

"I'm gettin' married to my pickup truck
It doesn't leave me when I'm down on my luck
It doesn't shop at fancy stores or have a lawyer
Or want a divorce
It doesn't care if I stay out late
It doesn't bitch about the money I make
We'll be together till the end
It won't sleep with my best friend
I'm gonna get down on one knee
And ask my truck if it'll marry me"

Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like

All I worship and adore
In other words, please be true
In other words, I love you"

But ooh, baby I'm a fool for you

And the superstar's sucked into the supermassive

Falling from the dark - The symphony of dying lights
Behold the rain of stars - The blazing fire came pouring down
Falling from the dark - And life and death became unbound

I didn't think I could successfully make the argument that the Ballad of Serenity fit the theme - "sky" and "the black" notwithstanding - so here's another offering:

Whenever life gets you down, Mrs. Brown,
And things seem hard or tough
And people are stupid, obnoxious or daft
And you feel that you've had quite enough

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour
That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned
A sun that is the source of all our power

The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour
Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'

Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars
It's a hundred thousand light years side to side
It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick
But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide

We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point
We go 'round every two hundred million years
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding universe

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whizz
As fast as it can go, the speed of light, you know
Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure
How amazingly unlikely is your birth
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth

Now that she's back in the atmosphere
With drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey, hey, hey
She acts like summer and walks like rain
Reminds me that there's a time to change, hey, hey, hey
Since the return from her stay on the moon
She listens like spring and she talks like June, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey

But tell me, did you sail across the sun?
Did you make it to the Milky Way to see the lights all faded
And that heaven is overrated?

Tell me, did you fall for a shooting star–
One without a permanent scar?
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there?

If you dissect it, then you can control it
If you can name it, then you can own it
I don't want to play operation anymore
I'm tired of ending up with my organs on your floor

You want to diagram my heart
Is it so that you will know how to take it apart?
If you want to know how I feel
You could never just ask me

She's always worried about things like that
She said it's all gonna end and it might as well be my fault
And she only sleeps when it's raining
And she screams and her voice is strained
And she says baby
It's 3 am I must be lonely
When she says baby
Well I can't help but be scared of it all sometimes
The rain's gonna wash away I believe it"

Since we've had no further posts for about a week, I propose a NEW TOPIC.

Specific years are ok as generic, like 1999 in Prince's "Party like it's 1999" however, if you decide to post a date, it needs to be a specific date, like '4th July', not just a month.

Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie,

To tremendous applause she took off her drawers,
And with a lick of her lips she undid all her clips,
Threw it all in the air, and everyone stared,
And as the last piece of clothing fell to the floor,
The police were yelling out for more!!!

Taking command al while serving his country in need

Locked in a cell, waging war from the prison
Hiding in Auschwitz, who hides behind 4859?

Since it's Valentine's Day, shall we go with: Kiss/Kisses ?

This is too easy!

I kissed a girl and I liked it,
the taste of her cherry chopstick.
I kissed a girl just to try it,
I hope my boyfriend don't mind it.
It felt so wrong,
it felt so right.
Don't mean I'm in love tonight.
I kissed a girl and I liked it (I liked it).

"I see your face in front of me, still grainy
From that old black and white TV
My whole family silenced, watchin' you shape destiny
With your two hands, faster than the eye could see
You know what? Skinny little me started to strut
Ten years old, suddenly bold
'Cause I resolved to live like my hero in the ring
Be smart, never give an inch, no retreating
And I racked up respect from teachers, rednecks
And creatures who attack in a pack like insects
Never seen the like, not before or since
A young prince, and I remain convinced
of his invincibility, athletic agility, virility, still a free spirit
Forever through eternity, stingin' like a bee

I just never understood
How a man who died for good
Could not have a day that would
Be set aside for his recognition

Just 'cause some cannot see

That they should make it become an illusion

And we all know everything
That he stood for time will bring
For in peace our hearts will sing

There are survivors
They're coming home
They float in darkness
They're not alone
Now here they come
Now hear they come
Now they will be received

No one could outrun the crash
It was all reduced to rubble
And then again to ash
To the blinding burning light
It's no use to fight
There's no one out there

There was no signal from where you were
All failed contact, no life disturbed
Hovering above,
Hovering above gravity's lure

We have the force to fight
We have the blinding light
We have the will to win
Forever we'll defend

Knocking out the sun
With a runaway transmission
A voice that can't be heard
Coming in louder than words

We have the force to fight
We have the blinding light
A war is more than heard
Coming in louder than words

Systems malfunction, blast it this damn machine, over and out captain.
Something lurks, creeps on the counter top, somewhere behind you.
Parasitic cyst, I can't stand to watch.
It's coming up and out of your chest.

Remember when we were young.
Sit up right on the table, a photograph of Earth feeding me a way back.

You made a good friend to me.
But while you were outnumbered and torn,

But you aren't even listening

"She radiates across the skyline.
I have swept through her oak, maple, and pine
as a spirit released from corporeal ways,
or a man who is still from the kill ablaze.

And though I've seen her aflame in the sun,
just as I have in the gloom of the rain,
and as I have in dead winter days,
her beauty abides in all her shades.

A thousand times and
she's never lived at all.
She, arboreal.

The silence stills the morning air so clean
as if she's holding her breath in waiting.
She beckons through her cascading greens;
in susurrations she speaks my name.

A thousand times and
she's never lived at all.
She, arboreal."

But they always look in their prime
They go on dancing their dance

Oh what a gift they give
Then autumn days grow short and cold
Oh what a joy to live

I was following the pack,
All swaddled in their coats
With scarves of red tied 'round their throats
To keep their little heads
From fallin' in the snow
And I turned 'round and there you go.
And Michael you would fall,
And turn the white snow
Red as strawberries in the summertime.

The current topic (from last page) is still Nature

"Overhead the albatross hangs motionless upon the air
And deep beneath the rolling waves
In labyrinths of coral caves
The echo of a distant time
Comes willowing across the sand
And everything is green and submarine"

Deep in the brume of juniper and fern
A moon overhead and stones at my feet
I walked through a veil of cypress and birch
And came to a surface painted with leaves

Voiceless, a child appeared in the brush
And smiled with a hush, all dusty and tanned
And before I could speak, she ran to my side
And knelt with a flow'r she placed in my hand

Aurora swims in the ether
Emerald fire scars the night sky
Amber streams from Sol
Are not unlike the waves of the sea
Nor the endless horizon of ice

Aurora swims in the ether
Emerald fire paints the twilight
Heidrun bleeds the golden nectar
For the rising sun and the moon
The midnight wolves who watch over the dawn

I saw a fox by the rabbit hole
You saw a prince from a fairy tale
He promised that he'd watch over you
Turned out to be the fox we all knew

Run rabbit run, as fast as you can. Don't look back.

Open wide I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore.
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door - 
Perched upon a bust of arice just above my chamber door - 
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

Soon that ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
"Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou," I said, "art sure no craven.
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering on the nightly shore - 
Tell me what thy lordly name is on this Night's Plutonian shore!"
Quoth the raven, "Nevermore."

"...In ancient times once rode across the land
a man unknown on a horse of untold grand,
adorned his cape by thirty runes of gold
of whom the tales since ages unknown told...

...The man arrived at the shore of sea
and gazed onto the nightly sky,
his ears could hear and his eyes could see
two ravens dark as night passing by...

...In a distance far the thunder sounds
and lightnings reached the frozen grounds,
his breath ran fast, his heart pounded strong
as the day now came, awaited oh so long...

...Tears will fall and blood will soon be shed
when the dawn heralds the twilight of the day...
Then into battle they will ride with their swords in hand
for a heathenish foray..."

Kill the Orcs, slay the Orcs, destroy the Orcs!

You returned late home that night
Evidence all around you from their flight
You see your family's blood spilled on the ground
There's no trace of the Orcs to be found

Take the broadsword in your hand
Follow the Orcs to their camp
You will have vengeance in blood

With their heads they will pay the price
Spill blood
On their trail we hunt them tirelessly
Spill blood
Bloodshed eases their loss
Spill their blood

No one will ever know our names
But the bard's songs will remain
Tomorrow all will be known and you're not alone
So don't be afraid in the dark and cold
But the bard's songs will remain, they all will remain

In my thoughts and in my dreams
They're always in my mind
These songs of hobbits, dwarfs and men
And elves come close your eyes
You can see them, too

Guardian of the lair, keeper of the crystal blue
Into the dragon's lair once more"

Young friends and old whiskey are burning inside;

Wet promise of winter brings recourse to coal;
There's fire in the blood and a fog on Bras d'Or,
The giant will rise with the moon."

Yes, yes. I have just heard the Van Canto version more since I've got that album in my MP3 collection.


Considering I'm currently sitting at work, near a window, looking out over the River Clyde, with snow-covered mountain tops and scattered clouds, the next topic is:

It can be a song by a Scottish band, a song that mentions Scotland, or a traditional Scottish song. As long as it's related to Scotland, I'll allow it.

On Scotland's battle field,

My love he is a handsome laddie,
And though he is Dumbarton's caddie,
Some day I'll be a Captains lady,
When Johnie tends his vow tae me.

Dumbarton's drums they sound sae bonnie,
And they remind me o my Johnie,
Such fond delight does fall upon me,
When Johnie kneels and kisses me.
Across the fields of bounding heather,
Dumbarton sounds the hour o pleasure,
The joy I know will know no measure,
When Johnie kneels and kisses me.

Dumbarton's drums they sound sae bonnie,
And they remind me o my Johnie,
Such fond delight does fall upon me,
When Johnie kneels and kisses me.
'Tis he alone that can delight me,
His roving eyes they do invite me,
And when his tender arms enfold me,
The blackest night does turn and flee.

Torn from Alba's womb
A reflection of fallen martyrs

Ancient echoes in the breeze
The fallen leaves of autumn
Withering away"

I don't know if you can see
The changes that have come over me
In these last few days I've been afraid
That I might drift away
So I've been telling old stories, singing songs
That make me think about where I came from
And that's the reason why I seem
So far away today

Oh, but let me tell you that I love you
That I think about you all the time
Caledonia you're calling me
And now I'm going home
If I should become a stranger
You know that it would make me more than sad
Caledonia's been everything

Mother / Mama

2015-05-10, 08:50 PM
Only one way to kick this one off:

From the Bible to the popular song
There's one theme that we find right along
Of all ideals they hail as good
The most sublime is motherhood
There was a man though, who it seems
Once carried this ideal to extremes
He loved his mother and she loved him
And yet his story is rather grim

Oedipus Rex - Tom Lehrer

2015-05-11, 01:08 AM
Now I would never diss my own momma just to get recognition
Take a second to listen for who you think this record is dissing
But put yourself in my position; just try to envision
Witnessing your momma popping prescription pills in the kitchen
Bitching that someone's always going through her purse and ****'s missing
Going through public housing systems, victim of Munchhausen's Syndrome
My whole life I was made to believe I was sick when I wasn't
'Til I grew up, now I blew up, it makes you sick to ya stomach
Doesn't it? Wasn't it the reason you made that CD for me Ma?
So you could try to justify the way you treated me Ma?
But guess what? You're getting older now and it's cold when you're lonely
And Nathan's growing up so quick he's gonna know that you're phony
And Hailie's getting so big now; you should see her, she's beautiful
But you'll never see her - she won't even be at your funeral!
See what hurts me the most is you won't admit you was wrong
Bitch do your song - keep telling yourself that you was a mom!
But how dare you try to take what you didn't help me to get
You selfish bitch; I hope you ****ing burn in hell for this ****
Remember when Ronnie died and you said you wished it was me?
Well guess what, I am dead - dead to you as can be!

Only one way to kick this one off:

I posit that you are incorrect. The only TRUE way to kick this topic off would have been:

Mama, just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head,
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead.
Mama, life had just begun,
But now I've gone and thrown it all away.

Mama, ooh,
Didn't mean to make you cry,
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters.

Too late, my time has come,
Sent shivers down my spine,
Body's aching all the time.
Goodbye, everybody, I've got to go,
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.

Mama, ooh (anyway the wind blows),
I don't wanna die,
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

A mother’s love for her son
Unspoken, help me be
I took your love for granted
And all the things you said to me
I need your arms to welcome me
But a cold stone’s all I see

Let my heart go
Let your son grow
Mama, let my heart go
Or let this heart be still"

Let's lighten it up a bit again.

Pour out some liquor and I reminisce, cause through the drama
I can always depend on my mama
And when it seems that I'm hopeless
You say the words that can get me back in focus
When I was sick as a little kid
To keep me happy there's no limit to the things you did
And all my childhood memories
Are full of all the sweet things you did for me
And even though I act craaazy
I gotta thank the Lord that you made me
There are no words that can express how I feel
You never kept a secret, always stayed real
And I appreciate, how you raised me
And all the extra love that you gave me
I wish I could take the pain away
If you can make it through the night there's a brighter day
Everything will be alright if ya hold on
It's a struggle everyday, gotta roll on
And there's no way I can pay you back
But my plan is to show you that I understand
You are appreciated

2pac - Dear mama

Dark? As in 'The Prince of Darkness'?

"Times have changed and times are strange
Here I come, but I ain't the same
Mama, I'm coming home
Times gone by, seems to be
You could have been a better friend to me
Mama, I'm coming home
You took me in and you drove me out
Yeah, you had me hypnotized
Lost and found and turned around
By the fire in your eyes
You made me cry, you told me lies
But, I can't stand to say goodbye
Mama, I'm coming home"

So he hopped on a freighter, skidded the ocean
And left England without a sound."

How can I share this life
With someone else?
I promise you
There is no weight that can bury us
Beneath the ghosts of all my guilt

Here in the dark side of me

Dark Side of Me - Coheed & Cambria

And it's been a while now, but I finally realize how
Much reality sucks, but it's just something about our love
I'm still in denial now, dealing with the finality of it
And it's making me crazy thinking of the days we, spent
And how I'll never hold you again
Ain't **** I can do about it
Now my head is overcrowded
With these clouded memories and I can't seem to get you out it
And how the **** do you sleep comfortably
Knowing what you done did to me, huh?
Did it even occur to you that I loved you?
Completely, deep and madly, head over heels for you
Was you and me, once used to be together forever
It was supposed to be us, but you crushed the dream
We was supposed to die together, and it's killing me so much
When I sleep I wake up dead, must be why I

Saw two white coffins in my dreams last night
I saw my Lord Jesus with his hands pointing toward the light
Saw my old sweetheart she said, "honey, I'm back"
Just so you don't die alone, just so you don't die alone

Die Alone - Eminem ft. Kobe

Sorry for posting the entire song lyric, but it needs to be the full song, because it's the full story told...

They came for him one winter's night
Arrested, he was bound
They said there'd been a robbery
His pistol had been found

They marched him to the station house
He waited till the dawn
And as they led him to the dock
He knew that he'd been wronged
You stand accused of robbery
He heard the bailiff say
He knew without an alibi
Tomorrow's light would mourn his freedom

Over the hills and far away
For ten long years he'll count the days
Over the mountains and the seas
A prisoner's life for him there'll be

He knew that it would cost him deer
But yet he dare not say
Just where he had been that fateful night
A secret it must stay
He had to fight back tears of rage
His heart beat like a drum
For with the wife of his best friend
He'd spent his final night of freedom

Over the hills and far away
He swears he will return one day
Far from the mountains and the seas
Back in her arms again he'll be
Over the hills and far away

Each night within his prison cell
He looks out through the bars
He reads the letters that she wrote
One day he'll know the taste of freedom

Over the hills and far away
She prays he will return one day
As sure as the rivers reach the seas
Back in his arms again she'll be

Over the hills and far away - Gary Moore

"I don't feel
Whatever haunts you now
Since there is no one else
Accounting for your cruelty
You will see no consequence
And though I am not to blame
I suffer all the same

And who would save me now
Now that you are gone
And who would save you from yourself
You were the light
That shone by me in the night
You were the light
That shone actually on my life
You were the light
That flash left me in the dark
You were the light
The only light I'll ever know
You were the light"

Woods of Ypres - You Were The Light

Been waiting to use this song for a while.

"Her name is Lola, she was a showgirl,
But that was 30 years ago, when they used to have a show
Now it's a disco, but not for Lola
Still in the dress she used to wear, faded feathers in her hair
She sits there so refined, and drinks herself half-blind
She lost her youth and she lost her Tony
Now she's lost her mind!

At the Copa (Copa!), Copacabana (Copacabana)

"You could've been all I wanted
But you weren't honest
Now get in the ground
You choked off the surest of favors
But if you really loved me
You would've endured my world

Well if you're just as I presumed
A whore in sheep's clothing
F-ing up all I do
And if so here we stop
Then never again
Will you see this in your life

Hang on to the glory at my right hand
Here laid to rest is our love ever longed
With truth on the shores of compassion
You seem to take premise to all of these songs"

"What a curious life we have found here tonight
There is music that sounds from the street
There are lights in the clouds
Anne's ghost all around
Hear her voice as it's rolling and ringing through me
Soft and sweet, how the notes all bend and reach above the trees"

"There's no way outta here so just stay outta here
You don't talk in this town you don't walk in this town you just run run run
Keep your eyes on the ground you don't look in this town you run run run
And deny you'll never be done

You'll get sick around here
And it'll stick around here so just run run run
Things rot quick around here
So don't stick around here just run run run
Oh you'll never be done

"Tread on my face if you like little lady
Turn me inside out if you have to baby
But don't you cross me off your list
I am young and I ain't never been kissed
Never been kissed by a lady called Amy

You're far out, you're fab and insane
A woman of the world, it's quite plain
My dad told me Amy's your name
Said he'd break my neck if I played your game
But he can bust my neck 'cause I love you all the same

Amy I know you don't have to show your affection
'Cause the big boys like you and to you I'm an infection
So if you don't want me around
I think I'll run along and drown
You can't want this bum in town Amy"

"Amanda the actress, waits at the station
She's drifting with nothing to do
With dilettante steps, she's quick to accept
The weather and times turning screw
She lives in a tower, armed with defences
She learned from her mother and friends
Walks like a pharaoh, dresses in day-glo
When she's in pain she pretends
That late in the night when the lights are out
She slips off her stockings and shoes
She makes you her lover and lets you discover
The smile she keeps, she keeps for you"

The Angels - No Secrets

2015-06-11, 08:30 AM
Oh I don't why she's leaving or were she's gonna go
I guess she's got her reasons but I just don't wanna know
Cause for 24 years I've been living next door to Alice

24 years just waiting for a chance
To tell her how I feel and maybe get a second glance
Now I gotta get used to not living next door to Alice

Alice - Dr Hook

2015-06-11, 09:02 AM
"Alice in her party dress
She thanks you kindly
So serene
She needs you like she needs her tranqs
To tell her that the world is clean
To promise her a definition
Tell her where the rain will fall
Tell her where the sun shines bright
And tell her she can have it all

When I hear the silly things that you say

What's that she's playing?
Annie get your gun
What's that she's taking
The song has to be sung

Don't shoot that singer

"One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small
And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all

Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits, and you know you're going to fall
Tell 'em a hookah-smoking caterpillar has given you the call

And call Alice, when she was just small

When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom, and your mind is moving low

Go ask Alice, I think she'll know

When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knight is talking backwards
And the red queen's off with her head
Remember what the dormouse said
Feed your head, feed your head"

Jefferson Airplane - White Rabbit

Songs of/about SUMMER!

2015-06-17, 05:46 AM
It's still in the night
of some early spring delight
I went wild in the woods
had to leave as soon as I could
Here comes the midnight train to summer
Here comes the midnight train to summer
Small pearls of dew
was it all the green grass knew
In my land of snow
only darkness grows
Here comes the midnight train to summer
Here comes the midnight train to summer
Go on! Go on!
I'm waving it all farewell
I wrote my song
and I'm ready to go
It's still in the night
of some early spring delight
I'm going to the land of the sun
I'm going to be the only one
Here comes the midnight train to summer
Here comes the midnight train to summer

Sort Sol - Midnight Train To Summer

"Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn't it a pity
Doesn't seem to be a shadow in the city

All around, people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head

But at night it's a different world
Go out and find a girl
Come-on come-on and dance all night
Despite the heat it'll be alright

And babe, don't you know it's a pity
That the days can't be like the nights
In the summer, in the city
In the summer, in the city"

Lovin Spoonful - Summer In The City

2015-06-18, 05:17 AM
Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I'm driving by your house
Though I know you're not home

But I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin' in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Boys of Summer - Don Henley

"What's up with this recession?
I refuse to participate
The answer to your burning question
Is dancing on your tailgate!

It's time to go to summer school
Remember what is and is not cool
Oh, summer school,
There is a time and a place to act like a fool..."

Jimmy Buffett - Summerzcool

Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those kicks were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightening
But they fought with expert timing

Carl Douglas - Kung Fu Fighting

2015-07-10, 08:02 AM
"There was a flash of lightning, Followed by snow
In a moment of silence (for myself), After a shock to the soul

With a look of disbelief, Alone and numb to the cold
I knew the last moment had passed, Before enduring years of sorrow

There was a crack of electric light, coming down from a darkened sky
My dreams flashed before my eyes, as they were erased from my life.

There was a flash of lightning, Followed by snow
Twas just the moment of change, Before years of sorrow"

Woods of Ypres - Lightning & Snow

"Scratch my back with a lightning bolt,
Thunder rolls like a bass drum note,
The sound of the weather is heaven's ragtime band.
We all fell down from the milky way,
Hangin' round here till judgment day,
Heaven only knows who's in command!

Barefoot children in the rain,
Got no need to explain,
We'd be swingin' on a ball and chain,
It's always understood by those who play the game,
Barefoot children in the rain..."

"Far between sundown's finish an' midnight's broken toll,
We ducked inside the doorway, thunder crashing,
As majestic bells of bolts struck shadows in the sounds
Seeming to be the chimes of freedom flashing.
Flashing for the warriors whose strength is not to fight;
Flashing for the refugees on the unarmed road of flight;
An' for each an' ev'ry underdog soldier in the night
We gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing."

Bob Dylan -- "Chimes of Freedom"

the way you love me is frightening.
I'd better knock, on wood, baby..."

Knock on Wood - Ami Stewart

2015-07-19, 09:40 PM
And we'd steal away every chance we could
To the backroom, the alley, the trusty woods
I used her she used me
But neither one cared
We were getting our share

Workin' on our night moves
Trying to lose the awkward teenage blues
Workin' on out night moves
In the summertime
And oh the wonder
Felt the lightning
And we waited on the thunder
waited on the thunder

Bob Seger - Night Moves

Your voice shakes the mountains

And I hope you will be
Creeping in my soul
Shadows fall, let me out,

And I'll always believe-
Creeping in my soul

Creeps from the deep's
gonna be freaking up your mind
Creeps from the deep's gonna be
Feeding off the spine

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me.

Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me.

Leave the men where they lay
They'll never see another day
Lost my soul, lost my dream
You can't take the sky from me.

I feel the black reaching out
I hear its song without a doubt
I still hear and I still see
That you can't take the sky from me.

Lost my love, lost my land
Lost the last place I could stand
There's no place I can be
Since I've found Serenity

And you can't take the sky from me.

But his old lady's into modelin', she can't get away from a phone.
