Roll out the barrel, we'll have a barrel of fun
Roll out the barrel, we've got the blues on the run
Zing boom tararrel, ring out a song of good cheer
Now's the time to roll the barrel, for the gang's all here

"As I was a goin' over the far famed Kerry mountains
I met with captain Farrell and his money he was counting
I first produced my pistol and I then produced my rapier
Saying "Stand and deliver" for he were a bold deceiver

Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
Whack for my daddy-o.
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar"

I was hiding away under water
waiting for distance and buying some time
trying to be two hundred thousand years younger
so i could excuse myself from humankind
'cause I don't want to be a container
or a bastard with a ten page disclaimer
but these monsters spin me around
get me down, just try and shut me

Gotta like what you do

It's just a box of rain
I don't know who put it there
Believe it if you need it
or leave it if you dare
But it's just a box of rain
or a ribbon for your hair
Such a long long time to be gone
and a short time to be there

Does a prison count as a container? :smalltongue::smallredface:

"Because stone walls do a prison make,
And iron bars - a cage.
Any man who says they don't
Never been inside.
'Cause in time, the bars get closer,
And at night, the walls grow tighter,
Do you feel like there's a
Shackle around your mind?"

Well, down came a jumbuck to drink at the billabong;
Up jumped the swagman and grabbed him with glee.
He sang as he shoved the jumbuck in his tucker-bag,
"You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me."
Waltzing Matilda, Matilda, my darlin',
You'll come a-waltzing, Matilda, with me.

"one day I looked into my rearview mirror,
And comin' up from behind,
Was a Georgia state policeman

But I didn't shoot no deputy, oh no! Oh!
I shot the sheriff
But I didn't shoot no deputy, ooh, ooh, oo-ooh.

where when you hit a red light you don't stop,

He slapped the cuffs on Johnney 99"

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 for 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.

"And that's what we did, sat in the back of the patrol car and drove to the
Quote Scene of the Crime unquote. I want tell you about the town of
Stockbridge, Massachusetts, where this happened here, they got three stop
Signs, two police officers, and one police car, but when we got to the
Scene of the Crime there was five police officers and three police cars,
Being the biggest crime of the last fifty years, and everybody wanted to
Get in the newspaper story about it. And they was using up all kinds of
Cop equipment that they had hanging around the police officer's station.
They was taking plaster tire tracks, foot prints, dog smelling prints, and
They took twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy photographs with circles
And arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each
One was to be used as evidence against us. Took pictures of the approach,
The getaway, the northwest corner the southwest corner and that's not to
Mention the aerial photography."

As he came into the window

He came into her apartment
He left the bloodstains on the carpet
She was sitting at the table
He could see she was unable
So she ran into the bedroom
She was struck down
It was her doom

"Someplace by Rahway Prison they ran out of gas,
The undercover cop had cornered them said 'Boy, you didn't think that this could last'
Jan jumped out of the bed, said 'There's someplace I gotta go'
She took a gun out of the drawer and said 'It's best if you don't know'

The undercover cop was found face down in a field,
The monkey man was on the river bridge using Tweeter as a shield
Jan said to the Monkey Man, "I'm not fooled by Tweeter's curl
I knew him long before he ever became a Jersey girl"

And the walls came down, all the way to hell,
Never saw them when they're standing, never saw them when they fell"

Can you tell me why the bells are ringing?
Nothing's happened in a million years

The dream police, they live inside of my head
The dream police, they come to me in my bed
The dream police, they're coming to arrest me, oh, no

You know that talk is cheap
And those rumors ain't nice
And when I fall asleep
I don't think I'll survive the night, the night

'Cause they're waiting for me
They're looking for me
Every single night
They're driving me insane
Those men inside my brain

Let's go south of the border...

"Pancho was a bandit boy,
His horse was fast as polished steel,
He wore his gun outside his pants,
For all the honest world to feel.

Pancho met his match, you know,
On the deserts down in Mexico,
Nobody heard his dyin' word,
Oh but that's the way it goes.

They could have had him any day,
They only let him slip away,
Out of kindness I suppose..."

I believe that with the last entry of the Law Enforcement topic being nearly three days ago, we can assume that it's time for a NEW TOPIC!!!™

Since the last topic brought up cops (inevitably) and that word can be exchanged for the word coppers, and copper is a metal, I figured this week's topic is:

Songs from the Metal genre are disqualified unless their lyrics actually include the mention of a metal of some sort.

There are so many of those you have no idea.

"Awoken to heavy galloping
I heard the blasting whiplash
Eyes are filled with lust to kill
Beware, he's crying out your name
Now the time has come

Blazing fire under the moon
Burning taste of lead
We'll ride forever
Cause' the Iron is stronger than death"

"Well we're waiting here in Allentown
For the Pennsylvania as never found
Oh, the promises our teachers gave,

No, they never taught us what was real,
Iron and coke, Chromium Steel.
And we're living here in Allentown..."

Going to see Buffett this weekend; hope he does Cowboy in the Jungle!

"Steel band in the distance
And their music floats across the bay
While American women in muumuus

But it’s the only show in town!"

"Thou wert once of little value
Having neither form nor beauty
Neither strength nor great importance
When like water thou wert resting
On the broad back of the marshes
On the steep declines of mountains
When thou wert but formless matter
Only dust of rusty color

Curses on thee, cruel iron
Curses on the steel thou givest
Curses on thee, tongue of evil
Cursed be thy life forever!"

So many great songs about Rust Belt despair... I see a couple of them mentioned here already; here's another one!

From the Monongahela valley,
To the Mesabi iron range;
To the coal mines of Appalachia,
The story's always the same;
Seven hundred tons of metal a day,
Now sir you tell me the world's changed;
Once I made you rich enough,
Rich enough to forget my name.

'Cause we're all going together
And I won't say "Woe is me"
As I disappear into the sea
'Cause I'm in good company
As we're all going together

"Well, it's all right, even when push comes to shove
Well, it's all right, if you got someone to love

Oh, misty eye of the mountain below
Keep careful watch of my brothers' souls
And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke
Keep watching over Durin's sons

If this is to end in fire
Then we should all burn together
Watch the flames climb high into the night

Calling out father oh
Stand by and we will
Watch the flames burn auburn on
The mountain side

I See Fire - Ed Sheeran

Some are born;
Some men die beneath one infinite sky.
There'll be war, there'll be peace.
But everything one day will cease.
All the iron turned to rust;
All the proud men turned to dust.
And so all things, time will mend.
So this song will end.

"The other night I dreamt a nice continental drift divide
Mountains sit in a line, Leonard Bernstein
Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce, and Lester Bangs
Birthday party, cheesecake, jellybean, boom
You symbiotic, patriotic, slam book neck, right? Right!

It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
It's the end of the world as we know it
And I feel fine"

Yo uguys realise that you can choose a NEW TOPIC™ without waiting for me, right?
I mean, I hi-jacked this thread to post NEW TOPICS™ a while back, and just seem to have got stuck with it now. :smallcool:

Anyway, since the current topic has been going for over a week, it's time for a NEW TOPIC™

And since I'm leaving for a short vacation trip later this week, the NEW TOPIC™ for this week is: Holidays, Trips and Voyages

Have at it!

I know, I just always keep saying I'll start a new topic eventually, but I keep getting caught in the Three post rule because I always have ONE. MORE. SONG...!

"The McNicholas's, the Polsalski's, the Smiths, Zerilli's, too

In the town where I was born
Lived a man who sailed to sea
And he told us of his life
In the land of submarines

So we sailed up to the sun
Till we found the sea of green
And we lived beneath the waves
In our yellow submarine
Yellow Submarine- The Beatles

We come from the land of the ice and snow
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow

To fight the horde, sing and cry

So many choices: Buffett? Sea Shanty? Country Trucker?

How about a classic:

"Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
a tale of a fateful trip,
that started from this tropic port,
aboard this tiny ship.

The mate was a mighty sailin' man,
the Skipper brave and sure,
five passengers set sail that day,
for a three hour tour,
a three hour tour."

Ok , let's give KuReshtin a break. In honor of Pope Francis' visit, lets do songs containing Latin phrases !

...visit to where.

Anyway, being the contrary bastard that I am, here we go:

"We're standing here by the abyss
And the world
Is in flames

Two star-crossed lovers reaching out
To the beast
With many names

He is
He’s the shining in the light
Without whom I cannot see
And he is
Insurrection, he is spite
He’s the force that made me be
He is
Nostro Dispater
Nostr'Alma Mater
He is"

2015-10-04, 04:16 PM
This is why we have KuReshtin do the topics - just one submission. I thought the metal heads would come up with stuff, or maybe a classical fan. I didn't get a chance myself ( trying to be fair with the 3 post rule). Not a single Ave Maria or Adeste Fideles.

Ok , I'll try once more- since it's October , lets try : Leaves

2015-10-04, 04:20 PM
I said baby, you know I'm gonna leave you.
I'll leave you when the summertime,
Leave you when the summer comes a rollin'
Leave you when the summer comes along.

one of my favorite Springsteen songs since I first heard it. enjoy.

"I watch the sun as it rises and it sets
I watch the moon trace it's arc with no regrets
My jacket around your shoulders, the falling leaves,
The wet grass on our backs as the autumn breeze drifts through the trees..."

Bruce Springsteen - Kingdom of days.

I thought the metal heads would come up with stuff

I tried :C

"Summer goes
Winter comes
Leaves fall on frozen grounds
True love lasts forever
I imagine you in a thousand glimpses
Moonlight you keep me safe at night
And I know you're here if I fall

Seasons change
Spirits wake up
Birds fly away to far-away homes
True love lasts forever
I imagine you in a thousand glimpses"

Self-titled songs are always weird for me.

Oh, those kind of leaves? :smallsmile:

Thanks to you, I'm much obliged
For such a pleasant stay, but now it's time for me to go
The autumn moon lights my way

"Once my heart was filled with the love of a girl,
I held her close but she faded in the night,

I could only come up with 'Mea Culpa' by Enigma as an entry for the Latin topic, but was away on holiday for most of the time of that topic, so never got round to posting it.

"I saw you standing with the wind and the rain in your face
And you were thinking 'bout the wisdom of the leaves and their grace
When the leaves come falling down
In September when the leaves, come falling down

And at night the moon is shining on a clear, cloudless sky
And when the evening shadows fall I'll be there by your side
When the leaves come falling down
In September when the leaves, come falling down"

When the Leaves Come Falling Down - Van Morrison

2015-10-09, 12:57 PM
We could probably go on for years finding songs about leaves, but let's try a NEW TOPIC™!

The New Topic™ will be: Hope, Miracles & Wonders
(And I use that term loosely)
Songs about the incredible (or inconcieveable) happening, strokes of luck, birth and rebirth, or that simply marvel at the amazing things in this earth all apply.

Go for it!

Well, that flopped.
New Topic - Day and Night
Songs mentioning the night or day, the Morning sun, the moon and stars, birds singing, and anything about what might happen tomorrow.

Go on, this should be easier.:smallsmile:

2015-10-12, 04:38 PM
In the city,
The day is too hot
And you're hoping for relief, cause your head is filled with pain,
But you get no relief, cause the night is the same.
In the night
In the night you see
Through jaded eyes
In the night
In the night you feel
Barely alive.

"Maybe the sun's light will be dim
And it won't matter anyhow
If morning's echoes say we've sinned
Well, it was what I wanted now

And if we're victims of the night
I won't be blinded by the light...."

Juice Newton - Angel Of The Morning

2015-10-13, 04:26 AM
Well, that flopped.

Give the topics a bit of time before calling it a flop. You only gave it over the weekend. Leave the topic up for about a week before calling it. :smallwink:

"Now you all know
The bards and their songs
When hours have gone by
I'll close my eyes
In a world far away
We may meet again
But now hear my song
About the dawn of the night
Let's sing the bards' song

Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs"

I saw you standing in the corner
On the edge of a burning light
I saw you standing in the corner
Come to me again in the cold, cold night

You make me feel a little older
Like a full grown woman might
But when you're gone I grow colder
Come to me again in the cold, cold night

"Darling I've been thinking this one through
We've been fighting like cat and dog now here's what we've go to do
This life in the city is killing the love that we one knew
We could be happy in the country

We would spend so many lovely days
We'd have chickens and cows and corn and whatever it is farmers raise
At breakfast each morning we'd fry up our own hand-picked eggs
We could be happy in the country

So let's pack our bags up together
And we'll be in the clear forever"

New week. NEW TOPIC™.

This week, we will be looking for:
Songs with the word MAGIC in the lyrics.

Quite specific this week. The lyrics have to contain the actual word 'Magic'.


2015-10-19, 03:51 AM
"In darkness lost I cannot move
And time is standing still
One word of magic
I hear the dragon cast a spell
Caught in dragonfear I feel
She tries to break my will
One word of magic
As she rises from the pit of hell"

Evertale - The Dragon's Lair

Do you have any idea how close I was to quoting The Bard's Song? :smalltongue:

"The Rangers had a homecoming
in Harlem late last night,
And the Magic Rat drove his sleek machine
Over the Jersey state line.
Barefoot girl was sitting on the hood of a Dodge,
drinking warm beer in the soft summer rain.
The Rat pulls into town, rolls up his pants,
Together they take a stab at romance
And disappear down Flamingo Lane..."

Bruce Springsteen - Jungleland.

Hmmm, what didn't I use last time?

"Sometimes I catch her dreamin' and wonder where that little mind meanders.
Is she strollin' along the shore or cruisin' o'er the broad savannah?
I know someday she'll learn to make up her own rhymes,
Someday she's gonna learn how to fly,
Oh that I won't deny.

I catch a little more dialogue comin' my way,
I see those big brown eyes just start to lookin' astray,
Your mother's still the only other woman for me,
Little Miss Magic, what you gonna be?

Jimmy Buffett - Little Miss Magic

2015-10-20, 03:55 AM

going by memory here sorry if it's inaccurate, It's been ages since I heard this one.

"Come on home, girl," he said with a smile,

Now and hold on fast
Could this be the magic at last?"

"A ritual to bind our race
In vast undeath, our severed fates
The sorcery of shamans old
To ever hunt the lords of cold
We drift within the sands of wrath
The wielders of the fire’s path
An ancient magic
Elderbound, bloodbound, earthbound"

Caladan Brood - A Voice Born of Stone and Dust

Fantasy aficionados might know what this song is about :smallbiggrin:

Ok, so it's a new(-ish) week, and therefore, it's time for a NEW TOPIC™.

This week's topic is based on a bolded word in feytalist's signature, and witha tweak, it also goes well with Halloween. The word was internet, so this week's topic is:

Webs and Spiders

2015-10-27, 03:34 PM
"Down in the shadows of your deepest secrets
I sleep next to the precepts you hold most dear
Your heart is in my province hour upon hour
I shiver when you feel the cold
Everything you say, I hear
Like a bomb and its fuse we bring bright light
But I could be a devil to you
I could bite like a tarantula
Right through the skin
And leave my poison dripping"

"There was an old lady who swallowed a fly,
I don't know why
She swallowed a fly
Perhaps she'll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a spider
That wiggled and jiggled
and tickled inside her.
She swallowed the spider to catch the fly,
But I don't know why
She swallowed a fly
Perhaps she'll die."

A really disturbed nursery rhyme - There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly.

Look, he's crawling up my wall
Black and hairy, very small
Now he's up above my head
Hanging by a little thread

Boris the spider
Boris the spider

Now he's dropped on to the floor
Heading for the bedroom door
Maybe he's as scared as me
Where's he gone now, I can't see

Boris the spider
Boris the spider

There he is wrapped in a ball
Doesn't seem to move at all
Perhaps he's dead, I'll just make sure
Pick this book up off the floor

Boris the spider
Boris the spider

He's come to a sticky end
Don't think he will ever mend
Never more will he crawl 'round
He's embedded in the ground

Boris the spider
Boris the spider

Boris the Spider -- The Who

Obviously, this one is a given for this topic:

"Spider-man, Spider-man
Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size
Catches thieves, just like flies
Look out! Here comes the Spider-man!

Is he strong? Listen, Bud!
He's got radioactive blood.
Can he swing from a thread?
Take a look overhead.
Hey there, there goes the Spider-man!"

ok, we've had no new lyrics posted for a couple of days now, so I guess it's time for a NEW TOPIC™.

Taking inspiration from the last poster's signature, like I did last week, this week's topic is:

However, nursery rhymes are prohibited as submissions.

Oh, Springsteen has no shortage of those :smallbiggrin:

"Well Papa go to bed Now, It's getting late.
Nothing we can say is gonna change anything now.
I'll be leaving in the morning from st. Mary's gate
We wouldn't change a thing even if we could somehow.

'Cause the darkness in the house has got the best of us,
There's a darkness in this town that's got us too.
But they can't touch me now
And you can't touch me now
They ain't gonna do to me
What I watched them do to you."

Thanks, KuReshtin.

What song should I choose, I say. I know, I'll listen to some country and choose. Spent the day weeping in my cubicle.

"I remember Daddy's hands,
how they held my Mama tight
And patted my back,
for something done right
There are things that I've forgotten,
that I loved about the man
But I'll always remember
the love in Daddy's hands"

^^^ Well, I'm running out of ideas here. Have to get my inspiration from somewhere. :smallwink:

Open up the window
Let some air into this room
I think I'm almost choking
From the smell of stale perfume
And the cigarette you're smoking
'Bout to scare me half to death
Open up the window
Let me catch my breath!

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come

Rockin my peers and puttin suckas in fear
Makin the tears rain down like a MON-soon
Listen to the bass go BOOM
Explosion, overpowerin
Over the competition, I'm towerin
Wreckin shop, when I drop these lyrics that'll make you call the cops
Don't you dare stare, you betta move

Enough sad country music. I need something happy...let me try the Irish station.

"Kilkelly, Ireland, 18 and 92, my dear brother John,
I'm sorry that I didn't write sooner to tell you that father passed on.
He was living with Brigid, she says he was cheerful
And healthy right down to the end.
Ah, you should have seen him play with
The grandchildren of Pat McNamara, your friend.
And we buried him alongside of mother,
Down at the Kilkelly churchyard.
He was a strong and a feisty old man,
Considering his life was so hard.
And it's funny the way he kept talking about you,
He called for you in the end.
Oh, why don't you think about coming to visit,
We'd all love to see you again."

Enough sad country music. I need something happy...let me try the Irish station. KuReshtin said no nursery songs. It killed the atmosphere:smalltongue:

"Your mamma's yappin' in the back seat,
Tell to push over and move them big feet.
Every Monday morning I gotta drive her down to the unemployment agency.
Well this morning I ain't fightin', tell her I give up,
Tell her she wins if she'll just shut up.
But It's the last time that she's gonna be ridin' with me.
And you can tell her there's a hot sun beatin' on the black top,
She keeps talkin' she'll be walkin' that last block,
She can take a subway back to the ghetto tonight.
Well I got some beer and the highway's free,
And I got you, and baby you got me.
Hey, hey, hey,
What you say,
Sherry Darling"

Bruce Springsteen - Sherry Darling

I know how to find happy music! I just needed to take a tip from Prince Zahn and go with: Bruuuuuuce! :smallcool:

"But now you're sad, your mama's mad,
And your papa says he knows that I don't have any money...
Your papa says he knows that I don't have any money...
Oh, your daddy says he knows that I don't have any money...
Well, tell him this is his last chance, to get his daughter in a fine romance,
'Cause a record company, Rosie, just gave me a big advance!"

Met our mothers at the U.S.O,
Asked them to dance, danced with them slow.
And we're waiting here in Allentown,
But the restlessness was handed-down,
And it's getting very hard to Sta~a~a~a~ay"

Billy Joel - Allentown.

Whoops, I read that as WWII.
(I Don't think I know any songs that fit this category. It's rather specific. I suggest songs about war or somethin)

There is no victory
Only boys who lost their lives in the sand

Such waste of life

The wind can make 'em sing.
Songs of life, songs of hope,
Songs to keep your dreams afloat!

Let the chips fall where they will,
Cause I've got boats to build."

And the coming of the winter,
Fear that is within you now that seems to never end,
And the dreams that have escaped you,
And the hope that you've forgotten,
And you tell me that you need me now,
And you want to be my friend.

And you wonder where we're going,
Where's the rhyme and where's the reason?
And it's you cannot accept,
It is here we must begin,
To seek the wisdom of the children,
And the graceful way of flowers in the wind..."

Ok, everyone. Many of us are looking forward to an Old Fashioned Thanksgiving so how about songs about : Grandma or Grandpa?

Prince Zahn
2015-11-24, 11:41 AM
don't know many of those, but I'll try. I got a love song in mind about how grandma and grandpa met, got married, raised a family together and had grandchildren.(I'll work with the version I know!)

Ooooooooooh kisses sweeter than wine,
Ooooooooooh! Kisses sweeter than wine,

When I was a young man, I never been kissed,
I got to thinking over what I had missed.
I got me a girl, I kissed her and then –
–Oh Lord! I kissed her again!

Ooooooooooh, kisses sweeter than wine,
Ooooooooooh! Kisses sweeter than wine,

He asked me, would I marry him, be his sweet wife
And we would be so happy all of our life.
He begged, and he pleaded, like a natural man
And then – Oh Lord! I gave him my hand!

Oooooooooooh, kisses sweeter than wine....

I worked mighty hard, and so did my wife,
Working hand-in-hand to make a good life.
Corn in the field and weeds in the bin,
I was - Oh Lord! The father of twins!

Oooooooooooh, kisses sweeter than wine....

Our children numbered just about four,
They all had sweethearts knocking on the door
They all got married and they didn't hesitate
I was – Oh Lord! The grandmother of eight!

Oooooooooooh, kisses sweeter than wine....

Now we are old, and ready to go,
We got to thinking what happened a long time ago,
We had a lot of kids, trouble and pain, but –
– Oh Lord! We'd do it again!

(CHORUS ×2:)
Oooooooooooh, kisses sweeter than wine...."

You were pretty
Queen of New York City
When the band finished playing

Were singing Galway Bay
And the bells were ringing out

In New York City
It's a big old, bad old, tough old town, it's true,
But beginnings are contagious there
They're always setting stages there
they're always turning pages there for you

Ain't it great the way it all begins
In New York City?
Right away you're making time and making friends
No one cares who you were yesterday
If they pick you out you're on your way
To a once upon a time that never ends..."

Paints a Christmas card upon the pavement.

Deep regrets and heavy heartbeats,
When you wake you'll never see the spot,
That I was standing on."

These vagabond shoes
Are longing to stray
Right through the very heart of it

I want to wake up in a city
That doesn't sleep
And find I'm king of the hill
Top of the heap
These little town blues
Are melting away

In old New York
If I can make it there
I'll make it anywhere
It's up to you

Ya know the movement seems to soothe me
And the tempo takes control
And I lose my blues

The ice, it used to shine upon our river
It was a mirror that the cold dark water ran way deep beneath
And here were many years of winter drownings
I kept track of these things as they were told to me

And that's what I looked for
That's what I came for

There once was good blood in the breeze here
We rode across the lake each new year
What have I remembered
Did this used to be

"The lamp is burning low upon my tabletop,
The snow is softly falling.
The air is still in the silence of my room,
I hear your voice softly calling,

If I could only have you near
To breathe a sigh or two,
I would be happy just to hold the hands I love
On this Winter's night with you. "

"Winter - The realm of eternal ice
Snowfall and darkness descends upon the vales of time
Distant caress of the sun's fading light
The lands were painted white with the Winter's might

Oh how many nights and days, I've been lost in this land of sadness"

Only shadows remains
Silence sweeps out over this frozen land
A tragic curse lies here
The cold black winter over forsaken fields
Nothing can disperse it

A tragic cure lies here, the cold black winter
Over forsaken fields, lasting until the end"

In the spring becomes the rose."

Wipe my nose, get my new boots on
I get a little warm in my heart when I think of winter
I put my hands in my father's glove

I run off where the drifts get deeper
Sleeping Beauty, it drips me with a frown
I hear a voice: you must learn to stand up
For yourself 'cause I can't always be around

He says: when you gonna make up your mind?
When you gonna love you as much as I do?
When you gonna make up your mind?
'Cause things are gonna change so fast
All the white horses are still in bed
I'll tell you that I'll always want you near
You say that things change

"And I will follow them in this cold winter night
So I ́d find my way to you this time
Drifting away from the warmth of the darkness
Caressed by the light of a million stars
The darkness will always be a part of my heart
Until I ́m carried away by the winter ́s arms
Night is falling over my home
The land of snow and sorrow, oh carry me away from the cold
And I fall asleep and I will not be afraid
All I was, is gone now and sorrow is all I feel"

The day you'll come to life you'll realize
Expanding force to life where you belong
And in the winter cold, with opened eyes
You'll find the strength to fight and stand upright

One day you'll walk the world and keep in mind
The heart you've been given in winter time
And through the bitter cold, with opened eyes
You'll find the strength to fight and stand upright

"She'd trade Colorado if he'd take her with him
Closes the door before the winter lets the cold in,
And wonders if her love is strong enough to make him stay,
She's answered by the tail lights shining through the window pane

He said I wanna see you again
But I'm stuck in colder weather
Maybe tomorrow will be better
Can I call you then?
She said you're ramblin' man
You ain't ever gonna change
You got a gypsy soul to blame
And you were born for leavin'."

This is just too perfect... :smallbiggrin:

"The cop at the counter, he's the guardian angel
He watches these orphans through dark mirrored shades
And the register rings like a bell sadly tolling
For the fools we've become and the price that we paid
Oh, when I was a boy I believed in Christmas
Miracle season to make a new start
I don't need no miracle, sweet baby Jesus
Just help me find some kind of hope in my heart

And I'm dreaming about a silent night, holy night
When things were all right
And I'm dreaming about how my life could've been
If only, if only, if only
But I'll still be here at the morning's first light
Merry Christmas, it's Christmas at Denny's tonight."

But at least I'm here to bring a New Topic!

Since New years is almost here for every country that checks are valid in, It's customary to make a resolution for it, so my resolution is to quote songs about CHOICES/ DECISIONS!

Within struggle, amidst horror
Inside conflict, visceral war
Make a stand here, vanquish all fear
Don't hesitate, eradicate

Torn between Scylla and Charybdis
Feel the fear ripening, go taste it
Torn between Scylla and Charybdis
Feast fruits of valor, if you face it

Walls of carnage surround your weakness
Crash down like oceans, wait for the light
In total darkness, drowning in bleakness
Awaiting death's grip, cry out for life

Divided by destiny
Torn between death and doom
Destruction by decision
Fate shows me my open tomb

@^: Agreed. Blowing Winter on winter makes me a sad panda.

"And here's Ivanovich, in his rocket ship
Spinning helplessly up above the earth
And while his heart is splintered, all the girls of winter
Are buried in their coats, anonymous

While winter girls were waiting, Ivanovich in high rotation

And while the world was waiting, we're overwhelmed by some sensation
Of something long ago and far away"

Huddled home down in my place, in Holloway
I wondered if you even heard those songs I used to play
I wrote them as a gift for you and in return
You gave a pair of hand knit mittens to keep my fingers warm
So I could play more ignored love songs

I once wrote you love songs
You never fell in love
We used to fit like mittens, but never like gloves
And I once wrote you postcards
You never wrote back
You promised me you would and I'm still waiting for them

You left me feeling like we'd never really been in love
Don't wanna fit like mittens; I wanna fit like gloves

As of late I'm celebrating an RPG character who does a lot of things that nobody else knows about, So how about this week we try: SECRETS sssshhh!

This week is all about songs discussing what others don't know about. whether someone is hiding something, or the song is about things that are best kept confidential, or even hidden place or a taboo relationship, anything!

For the purposes of this topic, the implication of secrecy suffices, even if words like "secret" were not explicitly said.

"I can see her lyin' back in her satin dress,
In a room where ya do what ya don't confess.
Sundown you better take care,
If I find you beenn creepin' 'round my back stairs,
Sundown ya better take care,
If I find you been creepin' 'round my back stairs..."

Gordon Lightfoot - Sundown

"It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
It's no secret that our world is in darkness tonight
They say the sun is sometimes eclipsed by a moon
You know I don't see you when she walks in the room

It's no secret that a friend is someone who lets you help
It's no secret that a liar won't believe anyone else
They say a secret is something you tell one other person
So I'm telling you, child."

U2 - The Fly

This time, don't need another perfect lie
Don't care if critics ever jump in line
I'm gonna give all my secrets away

@Scarlet W00t! Gordon Lightfoot! :smallbiggrin:

"Well everybody has a secret, sonny,
Something that they just can't face.
Some folks they spend their whole lives trying to keep it,
And they carry it with them every step that they take.

'till someday they just cut it loose,
Cut it loose or let it drag 'em down
Where no one asks any questions
Or stares too long in your face
In the darkness on the edge of town.
In the darkness on the edge of town. "

Bruce Springsteen - Darkness on the edge of town.

2016-01-19, 04:15 AM
"In temples and taverns where secrets are whispered
Arcane knowledge hides in their halls
Shadows gather in midnight processions
As wraiths and ghosts sing laments in the walls"

Caladan Brood - City of Azure Fire

"The judge said 'son, what is your alibi?
If you were somewhere else then you won't have to die.'
I said not a word, though it meant my life
For I'd been in the arms of my best friend's wife.
Oh, she walks these hills in a long black veil.
She visits my grave when the night winds wail.
Nobody knows, nobody sees, nobody knows but me."

Johnny Cash - The Long Black Veil

The throat is deep and the mouth is wide
Saw some things on the other side
Made me promise to never tell
But you know me, I can't help myself

"I'm aware of what you hea~rd
Every terrible wo~ord,
Everybody's makin' believe
that they know

All of the intimidate things
That we ever might have said
In the heat of a passionate moment
In a conversation shared
For the ears of nobody else
There are some things they'll never hear
There are secrets I'll never te~ell!"

Billy Joel - Careless Talk

They're whispering his name
through this disappearing land
But hidden in his coat
is a red right hand

Can't forget the classics:

"I am the modern man,
(Secret, secret I've got a secret)
Who hides behind a mask,
(Secret, secret, I've got a secret)
So no one else can see,
(Secret, secret, I've got a secret)
My true identity!"

Styx - Mr. Roboto

Don't you wish that you could be a fly on the wall?
A creepy little, sneaky little fly on the wall?
All my precious secrets, yeah
You'd know them all

"Once knew a man, yeah, I knew him well,
He dropped a secret and two tears in the wishing well,
He said three prayers and then he left to go,
And from the well there grew the reddest rose.
You loved the wind, yeah, you loved the storm,
So you'll be a sailor and reach the other shore.
There is a secret I'm not so proud of;
Never told anyone, not even God."

Vigilantes of Love - Sailors

Not all secrets are bad...

"Let me tell you a secret about a father's love,
A secret that my daddy said was just between us,
He said 'Daddies don't just love their children every now and then,
It's a love without end, Amen, it's a love without end, Amen!"

George Strait - Love Without End, Amen

"Let me fall out of the window
with confetti in my hair,
Deal out Jacks and bet
on a blanket by the stairs,
I'd tell you all my secrets,
But I lie about my past.
So send me off to bed forever more. "

Tom Waits - Tango till they're sore

OK, new topic? In honor of the Panthers & Broncos heading to the Super Bowl, lets choose songs related to :

Colorado or Carolina

@v Colorado has more than any of those other than Texas; heck , John Denver probably has close to a dozen himself...

Prince Zahn
2016-01-29, 05:11 PM
EDIT: As I thought of east and west virginia I remembered another song about Carolina, I'll add it below.

Can't we have said Virginia? Oklahoma? Alabama? Texas? Tenessee/memphis? NJ? Lots more songs about those. HECK! I could have a lot more to work with if the topic was about any of the 50 states. I only found this I think:

"Well he started with a bank in Colorado,
In the pocket of his vest a Colt he hid
And his age and his size
Took the teller by surprise
And word spread of Billy the Kid"

Billy Joel - The Ballad of Billy the Kid

"I was born and raised in East Virginia,
North Carolina I did roam.
And there I met the fairest Maiden,
Her name and age I do not know"

Traditional - East Virginia (/-blues)

2016-01-31, 09:25 PM
"She makes me feel like home's not so far away
She feels like Carolina"

"Carolina" by Parmalee

2016-02-01, 03:11 PM
"It was a junk-house in South Carolina
Held a boy the age of ten
Along with his older brother Billy
And their mother and her boyfriend
Who was a triple loser with some blue tattoos
That were given to him when he was young
And a drunk temper that was easy to lose
And thank god he didn't own a gun"

Carolina Drama - The Raconteurs

"Now he walks in quiet solitude the forest and the streams
Seeking grace in every step he takes
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake

And the Colorado rocky mountain high
I've seen it raining fire in the sky
You can talk to God and listen to the casual reply
Rocky mountain high"

John Denver - Rocky Mountain High

2016-02-10, 06:23 PM
"Carolina come bubble 'pon me
Oh watch how she groove
Carolina come wine 'pon me
Oh watch how di gal groove
Oh Carolina (Prowl off, jump an prance)
Oh Carolina (Prowl off, jump an prance)
Oh Carolina gal prowl off
Gal yuh fi jump an prance (Prowl off, jump an prance)"

Shaggy - Oh Carolina

What, you were only thinking about the state of Carolina (North or South)?

2016-02-17, 11:43 PM
O dangau mielas
Leisk įgyvendinti svajones

Jeigu galėčiau valdyti jausmus
Galbūt būčiau laimingas žmogus
O gal reikia kažko daugiau
Kažko tokio, ko nežinau

This is a Lithuanian song.
"Dangau mielas" means "Carol in a club".

I think.

Well, since yesterday was National Margarita Day, shall we go with:


@v I don't mean to. Usually it's in songs about Mexico or tequila- especially women drinking tequila or on vacation somewhere warm...

Prince Zahn
2016-02-24, 05:21 AM
I swear, Scarlet, your new topics are too hard for me:smallfrown: I'm grasping at straws here!

"And the Flyin' Zambinis watch Margarita do her neck twists
And the ringmaster gets the crowd to count along: 95,96,97..."

Bruce Springsteen - Wild Billy's Circus Story (A song I heard for the first time 10 minutes ago)

It's a shame we didn't do anything for Valentine's Day, now that I think about it.

2016-02-24, 05:37 PM
...totally surprised this one wasn't mentioned for margaritas.

Wasted away again in Margaritaville,
Searchin' for my lost shaker of salt.
Some people claim that there's a woman to blame,
But I know it's nobody's fault.

Jimmy Buffett - Margaritaville

2016-02-26, 07:19 AM
Knighty, did I not advise you to make the topics more generic, when picking new ones? :smallwink:

It's easier to find songs about more generic alcohol, like cocktails, or just alcoholic beverages in general, than being overly specific and limit things to only Margaritas.


Mar--ga--rita, ah
Mar--ga--rita, ah

It was in Pittsburgh, late one night
I lost my hat, got into a fight
I rolled and tumbled, till I saw the light
Went to the big apple, took a bite

Still the sun went down your way
Down from the blue into the gray
Where I stood I saw you walk away
You danced away

The Traveling Wilburys - Margarita

Scarlet Knight
2016-02-26, 06:45 PM
Yes, yes you did. I must listen to the wrong genre ...

"So we put our drinks together, and we toasted rainy weather
And the women that had done us wrong.
Then we threw back margaritas, the bugs just made it sweeter
And we both sang a happy song!

I got a bug in my margarita
Seems bad, luck won't leave me alone
I've got a woman I'm tryin to drink away
I've got a long, long way to go!"

Alan Jackson - Long Way To Go

OK new topic, since it's the 29th, in honor of Leap Year, how about songs with Leap ( or jump) in it?

2016-02-29, 08:39 AM
Well can't you see me standing here,
I've got my back against the record machine
I ain't the worst that you've seen.
Oh can't you see what I mean?
Might as well jump. Jump!
Go ahead, jump.
Might as well jump. Jump!
Go ahead, jump.

Van Halen - Jump

2016-02-29, 11:10 AM
Jump, Jump! That's what the place is for
You gotta jump, jump! If you want more
You gotta jump, jump! When you hear the score
Everybody on the floor

Hoodzie - Jump Jump

I was born in a cross-fire hurricane
And I howled at my ma in the driving rain,
But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas!
But it's all right. Im jumpin jack flash,
Its a gas! gas! gas!

"You can jump right in
Let the music pull you in
You can jump right in
Oh and lose yourself again
As the Southern wind sings again an island lullaby!"

Zac Brown Band - Jump Right In

Pack it up, pack it in
Let me begin
I came to win
Battle me that's a sin
I won't tear the sack up
Punk you'd better back up
Try and play the role and the whole crew will act up
Get up, stand up, come on!
Come on, throw your hands up
If you've got the feeling jump across the ceiling
Mugs is a funk fest, someone's talking junk
Yo, I'll bust em in the eye
And then I'll take the punks home
Feel it, funk it
Amps in the trunk
And I got more rhymes than there's cops at a "Dunkin Donuts" shop
Sure enough I got props from the kids on the Hill
Plus my mom and my pops

I came to get down
I came to get down
So get out your seats and jump around
Jump around
Jump around
Jump around
Jump up, jump up and get down.
Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump, jump
Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump, jump
Jump, jump, jump, jump, jump, jump

House of Pain - Jump Around

Since March comes in like a lion, let's go with a new topic : Lion
and no, you can't use Lyin' Eyes...

2016-03-07, 02:39 AM
Now I'm floating like a butterfly
Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero

You held me down, but I got up
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, you hear that sound
Like thunder gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready 'cause I've had enough
I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire
'Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
'Cause I am a champion and you're gonna hear me roar

Katy Perry - Roar

2016-03-07, 03:35 AM
"Tremble for yourself, my man,
You know that you have seen this all before.
Tremble, little lion man,
You'll never settle any of your scores.
Your grace is wasted in your face,
Your boldness stands alone among the wreck.
Now learn from your mother
Or else spend your days biting your own neck."

Mumford and Sons - Little Lion Man
