Norah Jones has some awesome lyrics. I loved her first album. Not so keen on the second one and haven't heard the third yet, but yeah, there's a number of songs that I find incredibly emotive on the first one.

Brand New - Play Crack the Sky. I basically had this song on repeat after one particularly bad breakup like a fuckin emo kid. But the lyrics can still get me.

"Play Crack The Sky"

We sent out the SOS call.
It was a quarter past four in the morning when the storm broke our second anchor line.
Four months at sea, four months of calm seas to be pounded in the shallows off the tip of Montauk Point.

They call them rogues, they travel fast and alone.
One-hundred-foot faces of God's good ocean gone wrong.
What they call love is a risk to always get hit out of nowhere by some wave and end up on your own.

The hole in the hull defied the crews attempts to bail us out.
And flooded the engines and radio and half buried bow.

Your tongue is a rudder.
It steers the whole ship.
Sends your words past your lips or keeps them safe behind your teeth.
But the wrong words will strand you.
Come off course while you sleep.
Sweep your boat out to sea or dashed to bits on the reef.

The vessel groans the ocean pressures its frame.
To the port I see the lighthouse through the sleet and rain.
And I wish for one more day to give my love and repay debts.
But the morning finds our bodies washed up thirty miles west.

They say that the captain stays fast with the ship through still and storm.
But this ain't the Dakota, and the water is cold.
We won't have to fight for long.

This is the end.
This story's old but it goes on and on until we disappear.
Calm me and let me taste the salt you breathed while you were underneath.
I am the one who haunts your dreams of mountains sunk below the sea.
I spoke the words but never gave a thought to what they all could mean.
I know that this is what you want.
A funeral keeps both of us apart.
You know that you are not alone.
Need you like water in my lungs.

Yeah...I did the same with 'love hurts' by Nazareth after I broke up with my ex. It was pathetic really. Particularly when the 'tape' belonged to him and he came to collect it and I still wanted to listen to it but didn't want to admit I had been. lol

I'll vote for almost the entire Ani DiFranco corpus. There's too much to put here. And she plays some mighty good guitar.

Or The DeFrancos, featuring Tony!

A heartbeat, it's a lovebeat,
And a lovebeat is a good vibration,
Oh, a heartbeat it's a lovebeat,
And when we meet , it's a good sensation,
Listen to my heart pound,
Listen to my love sound,


My age is showing!

The Ballad Of Bilbo Baggins

The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins
Composed by Charles R. Grean Sung by Leonard Nimoy

In the middle of the earth in the land of the Shire
lives a brave little hobbit whom we all admire.
With his long wooden pipe,
fuzzy, woolly toes,
he lives in a hobbit-hole and everybody knows him

Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
He's only three feet tall
Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
The bravest little hobbit of them all

Now hobbits are a peace-lovin' folks you know
They don't like to hurry and they take things slow
They don't like to travel away from home
They just want to eat and be left alone
But one day Bilbo was asked to go
on a big adventure to the caves below,
to help some dwarves get back their gold
that was stolen by a dragon in the days of old.

Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
He's only three feet tall
Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
The bravest little hobbit of them all

Well he fought with the goblins!
He battled a troll!!
He riddled with Gollum!!!
A magic ring he stole!!!!
He was chased by wolves!!!!!
Lost in the forest!!!!!!
Escaped in a barrel from the elf-king's halls!!!!!!!

Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
The bravest little hobbit of them all

Now he's back in his hole in the land of the Shire,
that brave little hobbit whom we all admire,
just a-sittin' on a treasure of silver and gold
a-puffin' on his pipe in his hobbit-hole.

Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
He's only three feet tall
Bilbo! Bilbo! Bilbo Baggins
The bravest little hobbit of them all

Saw the video a few years ago. Very 1960s. Very silly.

OneRepublic - Apologize


I'm holding on your rope,
Got me ten feet off the ground
I'm hearin what you say but I just can't make a sound
You tell me that you need me
Then you go and cut me down, but wait
You tell me that you're sorry
Didn't think I'd turn around, and say...

It's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

I'd take another chance, take a fall
Take a shot for you
And I need you like a heart needs a beat
But it's nothin new
I loved you with a fire red-
Now it's turning blue, and you say...
"Sorry" like the angel heaven let me think was you
But I'm afraid...

It's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

Bridge (guitar/piano)

It's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late
It's too late to apologize, yeah
I said it's too late to apologize, yeah-
I'm holdin on your rope, got me ten feet off the ground...


I love the music to this -

These people purposely obscure their lyrics....ha.....this is what they are really saying:

Hot stuff you dirty Irish!!

My Bloody Valentine Lyrics


Soft As Snow (But Warm Inside) Lyrics



Soft as snow but warm inside
Penetrate you cannot hide
Feeling lost forever
Really need you
Feeling dark and feeling true
This is all I ever knew
Soft as skin in leather
And I whisper 'you'
Harder you come down on me
Sink away you look happily
Secrets keep forever
They're undressing me
Come inside it's warm in here
Better now to have no fear
Carried on a wave
(Where it can lead) you
Touch your head, then your hair
Softer, softer everywhere
Fingertips are burning
Can I touch you there
Soft as velvet eyes can see
Bring me close to ecstacy
High away to heaven
And I'm coming too
Float now coming down on me
Handed you what I cannot see
Feel the big happy, you're exploding me

Soft as snow and warm inside
Penetrate then redivide
Slip away forever
(Do we) need you


A lot of their songs are dirty. I love it!!

In honor of Halloween -

HALLOWEEN - The Misfits

Bonfires burning bright
Pumpkin faces in the night
I remember Halloween

Dead cats hanging from poles
Little dead are out in droves
I remember Halloween

Brown leafed vertigo
Where skeletal life is known
I remember Halloween

This day anything goes
Burning bodies hanging from poles
I remember Halloween

Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween

Candy apples and razor blades
Little dead are soon in graves
I remember Halloween

This day anything goes
Burning bodies hanging from poles
I remember

Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween
Halloween, Halloween, Halloween, Halloween


=========

Halloween ll - The Misfits

Formulae ueteres exorsismorum et excommunicationum
Strigas et fictos lupos credere

Daemon pellem lupinam
In trunco quodam cauae
Arboris occultandum

Halloween, halloween, halloween, halloween
Halloween, halloween, halloween, halloween
Halloween, halloween, halloween, halloween

Metamorphoses lycanthropie
Possunt inquam
Metamorphoses lycanthropie
Possunt inquam

Halloween, halloween, halloween, halloween
Halloween, halloween, halloween, halloween

[the above is nonstandard latin. translation:

Ancient formulas of exorcisms and excommunications
That witches and those made wolves believe
I maim now the demon clothed in wolfskin
Having to hide in the hollow of a tree
I believe that they so can be changed.]

I Don't Wanna Change The World

I Don't Wanna Change The World - Ozzy Osbourne


Standing on the crossroads, world spinning round and round
Know which way I'm going, you can't bring me down
Don't you try and teach me no original sin
I don't need your pity for the shape I'm in

CHORUS
I don't wanna change the world
I don't want the world to change me
I don't want to change the world
I don't want the world to change me

Tell me I'm a sinner I got news for you
I spoke to God this morning and he don't like you
You telling all the people the original sin
He says he knowsyou better than you'll ever know him

CHORUS

You know it ain't easy
You know it ain't fair
So don't try to please me
Because I really don't care

Don't tell me stories 'cause yesterday's glories
Have gone away, so far away
I've heard it said there's a light up ahead
Lord I hope and pray I'm here to stay

Tell me I'm a sinner I got news for you
I spoke to God this morning and he don't like you
Don't you try and teach me no original sin
I don't need your pity for the shape I'm in

CHORUS

DARN THAT DREAM
Benny Goodman
- words by Eddie Delange

Darn that dream I dream each night
You say you love me and you hold me tight
But when I awake, you're out of sight
Oh, darn that dream

Darn your lips and darn your eyes
They lift me high above the moonlit skies
Then I tumble out of paradise
Oh, darn that dream

Darn that one-track mind of mine
I can't understand that you don't care
Just to change the mood I'm in
I'd welcome a nice old nightmare

Darn that dream and bless it too
Without that dream, I never would have you
But it haunts me and it won't come true
Oh, darn that dream

A song came on the radio that I haven't heard in ages. It was doing the rounds when me and J were beginning to realise it was over. It was the soundtrack to a car ad and ended up a fairly bg hit. It has a strange and melancholic tune. Very sweet.

J told me once it made him think of me. Then as we were in the middle of the break up it seemed to be on every radio play list. Its on my list of songs I still can't listen to without filling up. This and Radiohead's No Surpsies are atthe top of that little list.


Aqualung: Strange and Beautiful.

I've been watching your world from afar,
I've been trying to be where you are,
And I've been secretly falling apart,
I'll see.
To me, you're strange and you're beautiful,
You'd be so perfect with me but you just can't see,
You turn every head but you don't see me.

I'll put a spell on you,
You'll fall asleep and I'll put a spell on you.
And when I wake you,
I'll be the first thing you see,
And you'll realise that you love me.

Yeah...
Yeah...

Sometimes, the last thing you want comes in first,
Sometimes, the frist thing you want never comes,
And I know, the waiting is all you can do,
Sometimes...

I'll put a spell on you,
You'll fall asleep,
I'll put a spell on you,
And when I wake you,
I'll be the first thing you see,
And you'll realise that you love me.

I'll put a spell on you,
You'll fall asleep 'cos I'll put a spell on you,
And when I wake you,
I'll be the first thing you see,
And you'll realise that you love me, yeah...

yeah...
yeah...
yeah...
yeah...

This one always gets to me:

Here a pay
There a pay
Everywhere a co-pay
Oh yes Anthem stole my arm
Ee I ee I oh




I slay me!
