  1. Song thats sticking in your head

    Thought I would resurrect this post count boosting classic thread from the old forum

    Cake
    Opera Singer

    I am an Opera Singer
    I stand on painted Tape
    It tells me where I'm going
    And where to throw my cape

    I call my co-star's brother
    I call my co-star's name
    I play both good and evil parts
    I sing to Verdi's play

    And every single morning
    By 10 AM I'm dressed
    My rehearsals last for hours and hours
    With diligence I have been blessed

    Some people they call me monster
    Some people they call me saint
    My talent feeds my darker side
    Yet no one will complain

    I am an opera singer
    I sing in foreign lands
    I've sung for kings in Europe
    And emperors in Japan

    And after each performance
    People stand around and wave
    Just to tell me that they love my voice
    Just to tell me that I'm great

    I am an opera singer
    I will sing when you're all dead
    I sing the mountains crumbling apart
    I sing what can't be said

    I am an opera singer
    I sing in foreign lands
    Most people seem to know my name
    Or at least know who I am

    Well I listen to a lot of music, and I always have different songs stuck in my head, but at the currect moment it is........


    Tantric - Breakdown

    In your life
    You seem to have it all
    You seem to have control
    But deep within your soul
    You're losing it

    You never took the time
    Assume that you're to blame
    You think that you're insane
    Won't you spare me

    Chorus:
    I know the breakdown
    Everything is gonna shake now someday
    I know the breakdown
    Tell me again am I awake now
    Maybe you can find the reason that
    No one else is living this way

    Yeah your lies your world is built around
    Two faces to a clown
    The voices in your head think
    There's four pawns down

    Well in this unity
    Fate has found the need
    You better check yourself
    Before you check out

    Chorus

    If you find yourself
    Then you might believe
    Then within yourself
    You just might conceive

    Chorus

    You can find the reason that
    (You can find the reason that)
    No one else is living this way
    (You can find the reason that way)

    Faithless - Bring my family back

    I'm on lonely street age nearly three
    Recently Mama's crying all the time
    is it because of me or my younger sister,
    even Dad was weeping when he kissed her.
    Face all puffy like a blister,
    crying like he missed her.
    Since we moved away from the house,
    where we used to play.
    They say I'll understand on day but I doubt it,
    Mama never say nothing about it.
    How'd it get to be so crowded.
    I found it a strain, everywhere I look I see pain.
    And I can't escape the feeling,
    maybe I'm to blame. So I strain to listen,
    Praying for a decision, wishing they where kissing.
    This feels like extradition or exile,
    Mama finds it hard to smile
    So I make pretend cups of coffee in her favorite style.
    She says child I'm working so there's nothing you lack.
    But she know I want my Dad I want my family back.

    I'm on Lonely Street, age forty three.
    Couldn't gauge when to quit so my wife quit me.
    Took offense, took the kids,
    I wish that was the end.
    But before she took her leave
    she took care of my best friend.
    Working all the hours
    god sent was not the tactic
    You see, because after ten years I'm
    left wish jack ****
    Wanted to make the cash
    quick so I had to work real late.
    Bad sex, my woman's vex, even if I stay awake.
    And if I'm honest, I had a little cake at the office.
    I was eating. We'd do our cheating over coffees,
    making tea for the bosses.
    Making free with me,
    I agree I got sleazy too easily.
    But I'm forty three,
    this doesn't usually happen to me.
    Now I'm lonely,
    I wonder what my son's doing today.
    Suddenly I'm blinking like the screen
    on my computer display.
    And I'm drinking.
    Concerned about what's down the track
    if I don't get my family back.

    I'm on Lonely Street, number fifty three.
    Boarded up property,
    I'll probably get pulled down.
    Litter all around inside there's
    no sound and no light.
    But it gets busy at night
    People creeping.
    Derelicts sneaking to fix, Speaking.
    On the way my timbers creaking,
    Roof leaking. And bricks coming loose,
    knee high in refuse.
    But even though I'm a slum,
    I'm still of some use.
    There was a time when my walls where decorated.
    And under my roof children where educated.
    But now paint's faded, windows are all smashed,
    a crash in the economy robbed me of my family.
    And no strategy combats negative equity

    I'm freaking, and seeking to be
    more than just a house for crack.
    Somebody bring my family back.

    Sabbath Bloody Sabbath

    You've seen life through distorted eyes
    You know you had to learn
    The execution of your mind
    You really had to turn
    The race is run the book is read
    The end begins to show
    The truth is out, the lies are old
    But you don't want to know

    Nobody will ever let you know
    When you ask the reasons why
    They just tell you that you're on your own
    Fill your head all full of lies

    The people who have crippled you
    You want to see them burn
    The gates of life have closed on you
    And now there's just no return
    You're wishing that the hands of doom
    Could take your mind away
    And you don't care if you don't see again
    The light of day

    Nobody will ever let you know
    When you ask the reasons why
    They just tell you that you're on your own
    Fill your head all full of lies

    Where can you run to
    What more can you do
    No more tomorrow
    Life is killing you
    Dreams turn to nightmares
    Heaven turns to hell
    Burned out confusion
    Nothing more to tell

    Everything around you
    What's it coming to
    God knows as your dog knows
    Bog blast all of you
    Sabbath Bloody Sabbath
    Nothing more to do
    Living just for dying
    Dying just for you


    I like the ANTHRAX version bet, just because it sounds like your eardrums are bleeding.
    I like songs that slap in you the face, and stomp all over you, like this classic.

    Portishead - Numb

    Portishead - Numb. Released in 1994? In Europe but it made its way over here sometime. I was only 14 back in 94 so back then I was listening to Nirvana and stuff. So I missed it until last summer, well I recently began listening to Portishead's album "Dummy" again and nearly all the songs are good but this one sticks out in my head.

    Numb

    Unable so lost,
    I can't find my way,
    Been searching, but I have never seen,
    A turning, a turning from deceit.

    ‘Cause the child roses like,
    Try to reveal what I could feel,
    I can't understand myself anymore,
    ‘Cause I'm still feeling lonely,
    Feeling so unholy.

    ‘Cause the child roses like,
    Try to reveal what I could feel,
    And this loneliness,
    It just won't leave me alone, oh no.

    I'm fooling somebody,
    A faithless path to roam,
    Deceiving to breath this secretly,
    A silence, this silence I can't bear.

    ‘Cause a child roses light,
    Try to reveal what I could feel,
    And this loneliness,
    It just won't leave me alone, oh no,
    And this loneliness,
    It just won't leave me alone.

    A lady of war,
    A lady of war.

    I really don't know where I picked it up from...

    In Your Eyes
    Written by Kylie Minogue/Richard Stannard/Julian Gallagher/Ash Howes

    What on earth am I meant to do
    In this crowded place there is only you
    Was gonna leave now I have to stay
    You have taken my breath away

    (Woooh)
    Is the world still spinning around
    (Spinning around, woooh)
    I don't feel like coming down

    It's in your eyes
    I can tell what you're thinking
    My heart is sinking too
    It's no surprise
    I've been watching you lately
    I want to make it with you

    Destiny has a funny way
    When it comes and takes all your cares away
    I can't think of a single thing
    Other than what a beautiful state I'm in

    (Woooh)
    Is the world still spinning around
    (Spinning around, woooh)
    I don't feel like coming down

    It's in your eyes
    I can tell what you're thinking
    My heart is sinking too
    It's no surprise
    I've been watching you lately
    I want to make it with you

    With you with you with you...
    Want to make it with you
    With you with you with you...

    (Woooh)
    Is the world still spinning around
    (Spinning around, woooh)
    I don't feel like coming down

    3x:
    It's in your eyes
    I can tell what you're thinking
    My heart is sinking too
    It's no surprise
    I've been watching you lately
    I want to make it with you

    It's in your eyes...

    ho ho, he he, ha ha,

    They're Coming To Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!
    Napoleon XIV (real name: Jerry Samuels)

    Remember when you ran away and
    I got on my knees and begged you
    Not to leave because I'd go berserk?
    Well,You left me anyhow and then the
    Days got worse and worse and now you
    See I've gone completely out of my mind.
    And,

    They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa.
    They're coming to take me away, ho ho, he he, ha ha,
    To the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time
    And I'll be happy to see those nice young
    Men in their clean white coats and
    They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!

    You thought it was a joke and so you
    Laughed, you laughed!
    When I had said that losing you would make me flip my lid - right?
    You know you laughed, I heard you laugh,
    You laughed, you laughed and laughed, and then you
    Left, but now you know I'm utterly mad.
    And,

    They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa.
    They're coming to take me away, ho ho, he he , ha ha,
    To the happy home with trees and flowers and chirping birds
    And basket weavers who sit and smile
    And twiddle their thumbs and toes
    And they're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!

    I cooked your food, I cleaned your house
    And this is how you pay me back
    For all my kind, unselfish loving deeds? Huh?
    Well, you just wait--they'll find you yet
    And when they do they'll put you in the
    ASPCA you mangy mutt!
    And,

    They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa.
    They're coming to take me away, ho ho, he he, ha ha,
    To the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time
    And I'll be happy to see those nice young
    Men in their clean white coats and

    They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!
    To the happy home with trees and flowers and chirping birds
    And basket weavers who sit and smile
    And twiddle their thumbs and toes
    And they're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!
    To the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time
    And I'll be happy to see those nice young
    Men in their clean white coats and
    They're coming to take me away!

    Re: Portishead - Numb

    If you haven't already and you like Portishead (which you obviously do) try Massive Attack - the albums Protection, Blue Lines. Also some of the stuff by Tricky is quite good - Maxinque.
    I particularly like glory box.
    After making those recommendations I just did a google search to find the track listing of the album and found this page with similar recommendations
    :D

    Its in a slightly different key though ;)

    and the darkness would not come.....


    WOULD NOT COME - alanis
    if I make a lot of tinsel then people will want to
    if I am hardened no fear of further abandonment
    if I am famous then maybe i'll feel good in this skin
    if I am cultured my words will somehow garner respect
    i would throw a party still it would not come
    i would bike run swim and still it would not come
    i'd go travelling and still it would not come
    I would starve myself and still it would not come
    if I'm masculine I will be taken more seriously
    if I take a break it would make me irresponsible
    if i'm elusive I will surely be sought after often
    if I need assistance then I must be incapable
    i'd be filthy rich and still
    it would not come
    I would seduce them and still
    it would not come
    I would drink vodka and still
    it would not come
    i'd have an orgasm still
    it wouldn't come
    if I accumulate knowledge
    i'll be inpenetrable
    if I am aloof no one will know
    when they strike a nerve
    if I keep my mouth shut the boat
    will not have to be rocked
    if I am vulnerable I will be
    trampled upon
    i would go shopping and still
    it would not come
    i'd leave the country and still
    it would not come
    i would scream and rebel still
    it would not come
    i would stuff my face and still
    it would not come
    i'd be productive and still it would not come
    i'd be celebrated still it would not come
    i'd be the hero and still it would not come
    i'd renunciate and still it would not come

    Song in my head...

    Since I am currently working on a university paper about traditional Newfoundland music, the song in my head right now is Saltwater Joys by Buddy Wasisname and the Other Fellers . The song is about a Newfoundlander who must choose between leaving home to look for work, or staying in the place he loves, Newfoundland.

    Drivin Along In My Automobile

    Cake - Going The Distance

    I'm normally not a Cake fan, but when I'm in my car, on the highway, weaving in and out of traffic trying to get to work and the first chords let me know what's playing, I can't help but crank it. Great driving song.

    Now it's:

    what if the sun refused to shine?
    what if the clouds refused to rain?
    what if the wind refused to blow?
    what if the seas refused to wave?
    what if the world refused its turn?
    what if the stars would hesitate?

    what if, what is isn't true?
    what are you going to do?
    what if, what is isn't you?
    does that mean you've got to lose?
    digging for the feel of something new

    what if the silence let you dream?
    what if the air could let you breathe?
    what if the words would bring you here?
    what if this sound could bring you peace?

    what if, what is isn't true?
    what are you going to do?
    digging for the feel of something new
    what if, what is isn't you?
    what are you going to do?

    it came from your thoughts, your dreams and visions
    ripped up from your weeks and indecisions

    what if the sun refused to shine?
    what if the clouds refused to rain?
    what if the world refused to turn?
    what if the clocks would hesitate?

    what if, what is isn't true?
    what are you going to do?
    what if, what is isn't you?
    does that mean you've got to lose?
    digging for the feel of something new

    does that mean you've got to choose?
    the feel of something new
    does that mean you've got to lose?
    the thoughts you cannot use
    what are you gonna do?

    Bent 4 U (Alanis Morissette)



    You're unsure and you're not ready so that must mean I want you
    You're unavailable and disinterested and to you I look for comfort

    A million times in a million ways I will try to change you
    A million months and a million days I'll try to somehow convince you

    I have waited for you and adjusted for you and I'm done
    I have deferred to you and enabled you and I'm done

    You're too young or you're too old or you're simply not inclined
    You're asleep or you're withholding be that my cue to crave you

    Several times in several ways I'll try to squeeze love from you
    Several hours and several ways I'll feast on scraps thrown from you

    I have bent for you and I've deprived for you and I'm done
    I have depressed for you and contorted for you and I'm done
    I have stifled for you and I've compromised for you and I'm done
    I have silenced for you and sacrificed for you and I'm done

    It won't be long before I am reclaimed
    It won't take long and I'll be on path again
    It won't be easy for us to disengage
    I'm at the end of self deprivation stage

    You're afraid of every woman afraid of your inner workings
    You cringe at the thought of living under the same roof as me god and everything

    A million times and a million ways I've tried to alter to match you
    Several times every several days I've tried to uncrush on you



    I love her! :eek:
