    You should.... follow.... me down
    In satellite town
    There's no color and no sound
    I'll be ten feet under ground
    Gotta get out of this black & white town

    One of the best songs ever.

    pretty much this whole song:

    I will come for you at nighttime
    I will raise you from your sleep
    I will kiss you in four places
    As I go running along your street
    I will squeeze the life out of you
    You will make me laugh and make me cry
    And we will never forget it
    You will make me call your name
    And I'll shout it to the blue summer sky

    And we may never meet again
    So shed your skin and let's get started
    And you will throw your arms around me
    Yeah, you will throw your arms around me

    I dreamed of you at nighttime
    And I watched you in your sleep
    I met you in high places
    I touched your head and touched your feet
    So if you disappear out of view
    You know I will never say goodbye
    And though I try to forget it
    You will make me call your name
    And I'll shout it to the blue summer sky...
    And we may never meet again...
    So shed your skin and let's get started
    And you will throw your arms around me
    Yeah, you will throw your arms around me

    and i still get stuck at:

    We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,

    and before this is lost in the annals of Andy (a scary place if ever there was one)....

    In the (AAAC) Ghetto
    with apologies to Elvis Presley


    As the hard drive dies
    On a cold and gray Seattle mornin'
    A poor little Style Forumite arrives
    In the AAAC ghetto
    And Andy cries
    'cause if there's one thing that he don't need
    It's another hoodie wearin' mouth to feed
    In the ghetto

    People, don't you understand
    The Style Forumite needs a helping hand
    Or he'll grow to be a bleeding edge denim wearin' young man some day
    Take a look at you and me,
    Are we too blind to see,
    Do we simply turn our heads
    And look the other way

    Well the world turns
    And a denim clad boy with a runny nose
    Plays online as the cold wind blows
    In the ghetto

    And his hunger burns
    So he starts to roam the web at night
    And he learns about J. Press
    And he learns about trad
    In the ghetto

    Then one night in desperation
    A young man breaks away
    He buys a sack suit, asks about a trad car,
    Wears go-to-hell pants, but he don't get far
    And Harris cries

    As a crowd gathers 'round an angry young man
    Face down on the street with a ribbon watchband in his hand
    In the ghetto

    As the young man dies,
    On a warm and sunny Socal mornin',
    Another Style Forumite arrives
    In the ghetto

    Also, you really have to imagine Horace, Coolidge24, Brownshoe, MPCSB, Longwing, et al. in trad choir robes echoing "in the ghetto" each time Elvis sings that line.

    Yeah, I really love that song. Why, is that minus cred points? [​IMG]

    Maybe it's because of how perfectly it applies to Seattle; that along with my fondness for 80s piano laden pop and a driving beat. And it's in my singing range.

    God help any restaraunt that plays this while we are eating...

    Is this the real life?
    Is this just fantasy?
    Caught in a landslide,
    No escape from reality.
    Open your eyes, Look up to the skies and see,
    I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy,
    Because I'm easy come, easy go, Little high, little low,
    Any way the wind blows doesn't really matter to me, to me.

    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,
    Sends shivers down my spine, body's aching all the time.
    Goodbye, ev'rybody, I've got to go,
    Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth.
    Mama, ooh, I don't want to die,
    I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

    I see a little silhouetto of a man,
    Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango.
    Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very fright'ning me.
    (Galileo.) Galileo. (Galileo.) Galileo, Galileo figaro
    Magnifico. I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me.
    He's just a poor boy from a poor family,
    Spare him his life from this monstrosity.
    Easy come, easy go, will you let me go.
    Bismillah! No, we will not let you go.
    (Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go.
    (Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go.
    (Let me go.) Will not let you go.
    (Let me go.) Will not let you go. (Let me go.) Ah.
    No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
    (Oh mama mia, mama mia.) Mama mia, let me go.
    Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me.

    So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye.
    So you think you can love me and leave me to die.
    Oh, baby, can't do this to me, baby,
    Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here.

    Nothing really matters, Anyone can see,
    Nothing really matters,
    Nothing really matters to me.

    Any way the wind blows.

    One of my fav. songs.

    Do you remember a guy that's been
    In such an early song
    I've heard a rumour from Ground Control
    Oh no, don't say it's true

    They got a message from the Action Man
    "I'm happy, hope you're happy too
    I've loved all I've needed to love
    Sordid details following"

    The shrieking of nothing is killing
    Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis and I
    Ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair
    But I'm hoping to kick but the planet it's glowing

    Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
    We know Major Tom's a junkie
    Strung out in heaven's high
    Hitting an all-time low

    Time and again I tell myself
    I'll stay clean tonight
    But the little green wheels are following me
    Oh no, not again
    I'm stuck with a valuable friend
    "I'm happy, hope you're happy too"
    One flash of light but no smoking pistol

    I never done good things
    I never done bad things
    I never did anything out of the blue, woh-o-oh
    Want an axe to break the ice
    Wanna come down right now

    My mother said to get things done
    You'd better not mess with Major Tom

    No, I think Doves are way underrated, especially that album. I just don't love that song; I always think of "Heatwave."

    I did think, when you quoted it, maybe it applies well to the pacific nw. Same latitude as Manchester, no?

    Maybe it's because that was the first song of theirs that I heard on the radio - I prefer it to the rest of the album (which is still amazing). Yeah, I imagine it's a lot like Manchester here, except nicer a lot of the time.

    Matt,

    One of my favs also. Aussie bands really do rule; and I'm not Australian.


    pretty much this whole song:

    I will come for you at nighttime
    I will raise you from your sleep
    I will kiss you in four places
    As I go running along your street

    You will make me laugh and make me cry
    And we will never forget it
    You will make me call your name
    And I'll shout it to the blue summer sky

    And we may never meet again
    So shed your skin and let's get started
    And you will throw your arms around me
    Yeah, you will throw your arms around me

    I dreamed of you at nighttime
    And I watched you in your sleep
    I met you in high places
    I touched your head and touched your feet
    So if you disappear out of view
    You know I will never say goodbye
    And though I try to forget it
    You will make me call your name
    And I'll shout it to the blue summer sky...
    And we may never meet again...
    So shed your skin and let's get started
    And you will throw your arms around me
    Yeah, you will throw your arms around me

    and i still get stuck at:

    We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,

    Oh, you know, I just reread what I wrote and I hope you didn't take it the wrong way. I'm a total white-y, so was trying to put in my Eddie Murphy-ish imitation of a white guy (i.e. me). Sorry, Tck, I didn't mean that to be you. bob
    I absolutely did not take it the wrong way! I was embarrased that I made that mistake! I used to make fun of my parents because they used to screw up lyrics and groups names. Look at me now! I can't spell, can't remember band's names, lyrics, movie titles, actors... I am starting to understand what happened to them. [​IMG]

    the weather's variable
    so are you
    but I can't do a thing
    about the weather

    "About the Weather," by Magazine. Rather threatening when sung by their lead guy.

    I am a writer,
    writer of fictions,
    I am the heart that you call home.
    And I've written pages upon pages
    trying to rid you from my bones,
    my bones, my bones.

    ------

    If only summer rain would fall
    on the houses and the boulevards
    and the sidewalk bagatelles, it's like a dream.

    With the roar of cars
    and the lulling of the cafe bars.
    The sweetly sleeping sweeping of the Seine.
    Lord I don't know if i'll ever be back again

    I started out on Burgundy,
    But soon hit the harder stuff
    Everyone said they'd stand behind me
    When the game got rough
    But the joke was on me
    There was no one even there to call my bluff
    I'm going back to New York City
    I do believe I've had enough.

    --Dylan
    ~~~~~~~~~

    Another sunny day, I met you up in the garden
    You were digging plants, I dug you, beg your pardon
    I took a photograph of you in the herbaceous border
    It broke the heart of men and flowers and girls and trees

    Another rainy day, we're trapped inside with a train set
    Chocolate on the boil, steamy windows when we met
    You've got the attic window looking out on the cathedral
    And on a Sunday evening bells ring out in the dusk

    Another day in June, we'll pick eleven for football
    We're playing for our lives the referee gives us fuck all
    I saw you in the corner of my eye on the sidelines
    Your dark mascara bids me to historical deeds

    Everybody's gone you picked me up for a long drive
    We take the tourist route the nights are light until midnight
    We took the evening ferry over to the peninsula
    We found the avenue of trees went up to the hill
    That crazy avenue of trees, I'm living there still

    There's something in my eye a little midge so beguiling
    Sacrificed his life to bring us both eye to eye
    I heard the Eskimos remove obstructions with tongues, dear
    You missed my eye, I wonder why, I didn't complain
    You missed my eye, I wonder why, please do it again

    The lovin is a mess what happened to all of the feeling?
    I thought it was for real; babies, rings and fools kneeling
    And words of pledging trust and lifetimes stretching forever
    So what went wrong? It was a lie, it crumbled apart
    Ghost figures of past, present, future haunting the heart



    --Belle & Sebastian
