TV Themes – Underdog Lyrics 15 years ago
this song means 8 years old on mom and dad's bed in front of a black and white zenith watching only because nothing else is on...but 30+ yrs later can still hear the music

The Clash – Clampdown Lyrics 15 years ago

• noun informal a concerted attempt to suppress something.

Clampdown = facism

I am at work now at this fortune 500 desk.

[I remember seeing them in 1982 in a freaking gym at SUNY Binghamton, NY. (That was the BEST concert I've been to!)]

I was reading the lyrics, hearing the music in my head.

I look down at my clothes. Blue shirt. Brown (khaki) pants!

I've crossed the line.

Oh well. I have a family to support now. God did not answer my prayer and make me a anti-establishment rock and roll star.

Maybe out of the Bush Jr. regime a little anger will re-surface and not just get co-opted.

Too late for me since like they say:

"You grow up and you calm down"

The Beatles – Doctor Robert Lyrics 15 years ago
when i was 9 or 10 we got a place at the jersey shore. the renters had revolver there (? is that the right album). i loved this song and wondered why good old dad who had sgt. peppere, magical mystery tour, abby road and others did not own this one. i felt so robbed. i like the zinginess to the song.

The Beatles – Dear Prudence Lyrics 15 years ago
love it

Siouxie and the Banshees!

The Beatles – Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite! Lyrics 15 years ago
sitting on the oriental rug in the living room when i was 8 yrs ord this album interacted with my imagination.

this song was like the ruby wool byzanine patterns I was sitting on

what do kids have today that even compares?

The Beatles – All You Need Is Love Lyrics 15 years ago
If you had as much money as the Beatles, all you'd need would be love.

The Beatles – A Day in the Life Lyrics 15 years ago
Due to the multiple takes required to perfect the orchestral cacophony and the finishing chord, as well as the Beatles' considerable procrastination in composing the song, the total duration of time spent recording "A Day in the Life" was 34 hours, a rather long time for the production of one song by the Beatles and standing in marked contrast to their earliest work: their first album, Please Please Me, was recorded in its entirety in only 10 hours.


The Rolling Stones – Send It To Me Lyrics 15 years ago
I don't know.

It could mean Ukranian
could mean Uranium
could mean what drugs you on
could mean your cranium

The Rolling Stones – I Just Want To See His Face Lyrics 15 years ago
Wrong words

These are the words:

That's all right, that's all right, that's all right.
Sometimes you feel like trouble, sometimes you feel down.
Let this music relax you mind, let this music relax you mind.
Stand up and be counted, can I get a witness.
Sometimes you need somebody, if you have somebody to love.
Sometimes you ain't got nobody and you want somebody to love.
Then you don't want to walk and talk about Jesus,
You just want to see his face.
You don't want to walk and talk about Jesus,
You just want to see his face

I like the key boards and real gospel feel to the song. Where did they get these back up singers?!

The Beatles – Money (That's What I Want) Lyrics 15 years ago
Better than this version is the one by...some obscure 80's band with a female vocalist...The Insects or someting like that.

They take it to another place. They push the form closer to the content and it sounds greedy and souless yet musical.


The Beatles – Mean Mr. Mustard Lyrics 15 years ago
His sister Pam works in a shop,
She never stops, she’s a go getter.

so rhythmic musical

The Beatles – I'm Only Sleeping Lyrics 15 years ago
A year and a half later...Dat's funny danncingnancy19!

I go to this site exclusively at work so as to appear busy between naps at my desk.

The Rolling Stones – 2,000 Light Years From Home Lyrics 15 years ago
I love psychedelia and this is front and off center to me. I love it, love it, love it. Yay Brian's melotron.

I wanna safe on the green desert sand.

David Bowie – Candidate Lyrics 15 years ago
Just re-read lyrics and did a search on "les tricoteuses". I got:

"During the French Revolution, when guillotine was a staple of public life, a group of women known as les tricoteuses became famous for knitting while they watched the beheadings. The image is often used to symbolize how numb the French people had become to the grisly executions. But this research suggests that the women may have been undisturbed by the guillotine because they knit, not the other way around."

Who knew David Bowie lyrics could be educational?!

David Bowie – All the Madmen Lyrics 15 years ago
Back in 1982 our high school graduating class was given a couple days to submit a short comment or quote or ambition to put under our year book photo.

90% of the people put in: to be successful in all my endeavors or something like that.

The best one was Isaac Finklestein's (going to some school in Ohio on a music scholarship): "To be the pianist on the Mr. Rogers show."

Since I had to be different, I poured over the Bowie lyrics of my vinyl Bowie collection and came up with: "To be as heavy as can be, just my librium and me, and my E. S. T. make three."

Now that I look at the lyrics again...what is this about? Even though not on Diamond Dogs/1984/future apolypse album...I see it as Bowie picturing himself in Orwell's dystopia.

How about this for whatever:

chlordiazepoxide (librium) is indicated for the relief of acute agitation and hyperactivity (e.g., alcoholism, anxiety, hysterical and panic states, drug withdrawal symptoms) when rapid action is required or oral administration is not feasible.

Coo2kachoo (me) in highschool (apparently unconsciously pscychic) was dabbling but far from an alcoholic. 12 years later, a raving alcoholic - managed to escape, but unaided by librium or electric shock treatment.

Before the escape, I did not want to be set free from my "state" (until the end) was not induced by e.s.t. or librium, but beer, tequila, pot, coke, and the stray hallucinogen.

I guess I ended up "heavy as can be" with my oh-so-valuable-degree in philosophy...

So my silly non-sense "ambition" in the high school year book came crookedly true.

wooo hooo

David Bowie – Running Gun Blues Lyrics 15 years ago
how bout dat? I don't think people were going on killing sprees until the 90's. Quite the visionary.

David Bowie – We Are the Dead Lyrics 15 years ago
Eerie, sweet, and sad - like life in a paranoid emotionless society would be.

David Bowie – Tired of My Life Lyrics 15 years ago's no game lyrics...a scary monsters line too

David Bowie – Rock 'n' Roll with Me Lyrics 15 years ago
this one an odd fit for Diamond Dogs...but it serves the purpose of tempo change up I guess

David Bowie – 1984 Lyrics 15 years ago
You just got the album, and I just re-listened to it after yearssszz.

It is awesome. My new favorite off it is the bridge from Diamond Dogs to Rebel Rebel - or the Sweet Thing-Candidate-Sweet Thing Reprise portion.

Really side A is just amazing. What an intro Future Legend is! A perfect album side.

David Bowie – Candidate Lyrics 15 years ago
I have NO idea... aside from the obvious stuff - that politics is a seedy earthy world of souless ghouls.

I love side A of Diamond Dogs.

David Bowie – Sweet Thing Lyrics 15 years ago
I just re-visited Diamond Dogs on a cassette in the car on a ride where I got to hear it end to end. When I first listened to it Sweet Thing was just a bridge from Diamond Dogs to Rebel...but now that is - together with Candidate and the Sweet Thing Reprise - the best part of the album to me. LM said something about the pacing and style, and I could not agree more.

I tried to imagine creating/executing a song like it and it just would never occur to me. The sax is his best I think. Very soulful, emotive song. And the end of Sweet Thing Reprise is a wonderful chaotic noisy intro to Rebel Rebel. It fucking rocks!

New Order – Lonesome Tonight Lyrics 15 years ago
Beautiful song. It wistfully takes note of loss of innocence.

New Order – Leave Me Alone Lyrics 15 years ago
It comes from someone who feels detached and emotionally cleaned out.

From the isolation he feels, he sees a sea of alienated people:

"On a thousand islands in the sea
I see a thousand people just like me...
A thousand islands in the sea
It's a shame"

Everyone is an island isolated from each other.

What do I feel like when I'm alienated? Sometimes I feel like being alone - telling people to leave me alone.

New Order – In A Lonely Place Lyrics 15 years ago
I got to see New Order in Philadelphia at the Paladium in ?1988. They went on late. They played 58 or 59 minutes. I remember thinking, "That was not quite even an hour!" They played strange music over the sound system before they came on.

This song stood out as one they cared about and put their heart into. The rest of the show I got the feeling they were fulfilling a contract and that was it.

New Order – Everything's Gone Green Lyrics 15 years ago
I have NO idea...but the feel of the song is from when I listened to it early 20's. It feels angsty and trippy and something for drunken dancing in a warehouse style nightclub.

David Bowie – Friday on My Mind Lyrics 15 years ago
Pin Ups is a great wonderful album. This one and Alladin Sane go together well (which also has one cover song on it).

He makes disparate songs make an album and he does not necessarily improve the songs, but changes them to his own. Friday on my Mind has a Bowie stamp on it with frantic, angsty, ecstatic fun.

David Bowie – Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere Lyrics 15 years ago
If I had a favorite moment, snap shot of David Bowie's voice belting out a line - it's the first line of this song.

You know his voice, you know Roger Daultry's voice and how it sounds on this song, and when you hear that first line - it's so surprising in a good way. It blows me away. He does not sustain it for the song though. Sometimes after I drink coffee my voice will sound differnent for a little while. It's the same kind of thing.

David Bowie – Aladdin Sane (1913-1938-197?) Lyrics 15 years ago
Battle-cries and champagne
just in time for sunrise

David Bowie is king of poetic lyric!

I love the match of form and content.

Ever notice the strong similarity of "Emily Plays" (From Pin-Ups) and the piano and discordence of this song?

The Beatles – A Day in the Life Lyrics 16 years ago
I grew up listening to dad's Beatles albums. I feel like my 3 year old daughter is going to miss out on the fun...what is there today? Anyone with kids seen the Wiggles on Disney channel or whatever station that is. A cute facsimile of the Beatles! The conditions today seem ripe for creativity. Maybe something will rise up out of the sterile Neofacist Bush culture - just out of pure frustration and anger (good conditions for creativity).

The Rolling Stones – You Gotta Move Lyrics 16 years ago
Could someone as mighty and immortal as Mick write this? This song is soulful and very aware of mortality. This has got to be a New Orleans gospel song they lifted or wrote over?

The Rolling Stones – You Can't Always Get What You Want Lyrics 16 years ago
You Minnesota injuns gotta stop messin wit whitey, messin wit dey head!

Jimmy wud a weh known brotha from Swampy Lousianna! True. He is alive today, but that brotha don talk to nobudda no moe!

Eva since Mick tole him he kint git whut he want, he jus 'sume talk to no bud day! Selsior Minnesota my black ass!

The Rolling Stones – Ventilator Blues Lyrics 16 years ago
Thought it finished with

Don' fight it!
Don' fight it!

Good simple bluesy song...slips right into the next one - like a lot of Exile.

The Beatles – I Am the Walrus Lyrics 16 years ago
Always thought at the end of the song - the garbles voices were saying either:

everybody smokes pot, everybody smokes pot


everybody's f-d up, everybody's f-d up

and it's coo coo ka choo, not GOO GOO G’JOOB!

The Rolling Stones – Sway Lyrics 16 years ago
It's just that demon life has got you in its sway ...

I always thought it was:

It's just that evil eye's got chew in its sway?

Awesome song

The Rolling Stones – Stray Cat Blues Lyrics 16 years ago
I think Bill Wyman took a little too much courage from this song.

The Rolling Stones – Start Me Up Lyrics 16 years ago
I think this song is about the beginning of pro wrestling matches

The Rolling Stones – Soul Survivor Lyrics 16 years ago
The intro always gets me up and then this song kind of evens out too much and production quality disappoints. boo hoo

The Rolling Stones – Some Girls Lyrics 16 years ago
Could this song get radio play today? Remember what happened to Reverend/football player Reggie White when he made similar comments about ethnic groups?! The Stones, god bless them, have a license to say whatever whenever. I have free speech envy!

The Rolling Stones – Slave Lyrics 16 years ago
One time I was sloshed at this unusual work party. It was a send off for a lawyer who was leaving Philadelphia for somewhere in Californinia. It was on a ferry boat that went around on the Delaware River and the big boss's boyfriend was the disc jockey and he put this song on. Newer thought of this as a dance song before that - but we jammed.

The Rolling Stones – Sister Morphine Lyrics 16 years ago
this song has hidden meaning concerning drugs

The Rolling Stones – Shine A Light Lyrics 16 years ago
I had no idea this was about Brian Jones. It is a beautiful good soulful song. I love Exile. One of my favorite all time records...and as this site goes, goes radio play for it. It is the most underappreciated by anyone out of the inner core of Stones fans.

I always felt it was a song wishing a good friend well.

The Rolling Stones – She's So Cold Lyrics 16 years ago
I likes it too. But, with all the clever lyrics the Stones have (the sunshine bores the daylights out of me...etc.) where does

"she's so cold cold cold like an ice cream cone
She's so cold she's so cold
I dare not touch her my hand just froze"

come from?!!! That's some lame lyric writing there!

The Rolling Stones – She's A Rainbow Lyrics 16 years ago
I llllove this psycheldic album and song. I think it's some hot chick, but what's really going on is the guy seeing her is tripping his brains out.

The Rolling Stones – Shattered Lyrics 16 years ago
today you are in more danger from rent than a mugger in nyc

The Rolling Stones – Salt Of The Earth Lyrics 16 years ago

The Rolling Stones – Off The Hook Lyrics 16 years ago
this song is off the hook

The Rolling Stones – Not Fade Away Lyrics 16 years ago
The Rolling Stones are big fat liars! NOTHING is bigger than a Cadillac!

The Rolling Stones – No Use In Crying Lyrics 16 years ago
Tattoo You is an underrated album. This song barley a blip on the map and it beats all the new shite.

The Rolling Stones – No Expectations Lyrics 16 years ago
This was one of those songs back in the 70's early 80's, when it came on the radio, I always felt like I was getting a treat.
