What song moves you right now?

61 posts in this topic

With everything going on right now-what song moves you?

"Not my time"- 3 Doors Down

The song pretty much sums up how I feel right now.....Drowning in my home state....

Fits "Hell no I won't go" pretty well...... :soapbox:

Dare I say "better in time" by that Lewis gal is not too bad either.....

I've been quoting The Who lately, but I always resort to "New Horizons" by the Moody Blues in tough times.

It resets my attitude.

There are so many.

Here's another:

Daylight again

Following me to bed

I think about a hundred years ago

How my Fathers bled

I think I see a valley

Covered with bones in blue

All the brave soldiers that cannot get older

Been asking after you

Hear the past a' calling

From Armageddon's side

When everyone's talking and no one

Is listening

How can we decide

Do we find the cost of freedom

Buried in the ground

Mother Earth will swallow you

Lay your body down

Even better for the times:

It's been a long time comin'

It's goin' to be a Long Time Gone.

And it appears to be a long,

appears to be a long,

appears to be a long

time, yes, a long, long, long ,long time before the dawn.

Turn, turn any corner.

Hear, you must hear what the people say.

You know there's something that's goin' on around here,

the surely, surely, surely won't stand the light of day.

And it appears to be a long,

appears to be a long,

appears to be a long

time, yes, a long, long, long ,long time before the dawn.

Speak out, you got to speak out against the madness,

you got to speak your mind,

if you dare.

But don't no don't now try to get yourself elected

If you do you had better cut your hair.

`Cause it appears to be a long,

appears to be a long,

appears to be a long,

Time, such a long long long long time before the dawn.

It's been a long time comin'

It's goin' to be a long time gone.

But you know,

The darkest hour is always

Always just before the dawn.

And it appears to be a long, appears to be a long,

appears to be a long

Time before the dawn.

Or...

Red and white, blue suede shoes, I'm Uncle Sam, how do you do?

Gimme five, I'm still alive, ain't no luck, I learned to duck.

Check my pulse, it don't change. Stay seventy-two come shine or rain.

Wave the flag, pop the bag, rock the boat, skin the goat.

Wave that flag, wave it wide and high.

Summertime done, come and gone, my, oh, my.

I'm Uncle Sam, that's who I am; Been hidin' out in a rock and roll band.

Shake the hand that shook the hand of P.T. Barnum and Charlie Chan.

Shine your shoes, light your fuse. Can you use them ol' U.S. Blues?

I'll drink your health, share your wealth, run your life, steal your wife.

Wave that flag, wave it wide and high.

Summertime done, come and gone, my, oh, my.

Back to back chicken shack. Son of a gun, better change your act.

We're all confused, what's to lose?

You can call this song, the United States Blues.

Wave that flag, wave it wide and high.

Summertime done, come and gone, my, oh, my.

I know I've hijacked this one, but I have to post one more. I want to leave things on a positive note.

Years ago my heart was set to live on

And I've been tryin hard against unbelievable odds

Gets so hard at times like now to hold on

Guns they wait to be stuck by

And at my side is God

Ain't no one goin to turn me round

Ain't no one goin to turn me round

People round you tell you that they know

The places they have been, and it's easy to go

They'll zip you up and dress you down, and stand you in their role

You know you don't have to

You can just say no

And there ain't no one goin to turn me round

Ain't no one goin to turn me round

Ain't no one goin to turn me round

Ain't no one goin to turn me round

I've been built up and trusted

Broke down and busted

They'll get theirs and we'll get ours if you can just

Hold on

Hold on

Hold on

Hold on

Years ago my heart was set to live on

And I've been tryin hard against unbelievable odds

Gets so hard at times like now to hold on

Gonna fall if I don't fight it

And at my side is God

Ain't no one goin to turn me round

Ain't no one goin to turn me round

Ain't no one goin to turn me round

Ain't no one goin to turn me round

I usually have a pretty wide variety I play at work, but lately it's been a lot of heavy metal. A) it helps me work faster and B) it fits this crappy economic mood pretty well.

I listen almost exclusively to jazz. (Used to listen to classic rock, for its quality, and dance music, for its "yo mama" brand of sassiness, quite a bit more, but now, not so much).

So there's a song the jazz station(s) are playing which MOVES me in the WRONG direction. It irritates me.

I think it's called: Good Morning. Starts out: Good morning....Good moooorning...

Very stupid...sounds like a black guy telling his woman to stay in bed a little longer.

"You're The Voice"- sung by John Farnham. The song was featured in the 2007 film "Hot Rod" starring SNL's Andy Samberg.

In my eyes, Andy can do no wrong as I view him as a composite of all 4 of my younger Brothers.

I'm just being gay at the moment... I have Cyndi Lauper's new CD in my car and I keep playing Into the Nightlife over and over... Love the song, and Colton Ford wasn't a bad pick for the eye candy either. :AH-HA_wink:

The song just makes you want to throw on some body glitter and head to the dance floor. :gitfunky:

Right now my song on perpetual repeat is "Dawn of the Dead" by Does It Offend You, Yeah?

Yep Yep... the video was shot at a New York night club called Splash. She's currently on tour. Last time I saw her live was when she was touring with Cher. Cyndi was recently on Graham Norton with Jennifer Saunders (love her too - Fairy Godmother in Shrek, AB FAB, & French & Saunders.) I still have it saved on the DVR.

Just watched the video and looked up the lyrics. Good song... :)

Maybe I'm misunderstanding the message, but the premise reminds me of BNL's Pinch Me... except a little darker.

"Ass over Snatch" by Anal ####

Not really

That's right in line with those middle school jokes:

"Under the Bleachers" by Seymour Butts, and

"Hawaiian Pleasure" by Kamana Wanaleia

Been listening to a lot of MetallicA lately (naturally)

"That Was Just Your Life" does it for me because sometimes I just want to 'stitch up my eyes and open them just in time to say goodbye' because I'm so sick to death of this society.

"Cyanide" appeals to me a lot because its how I view myself in relation to this society. A.K.A. I seem "completely empty" to you because I don't care about you, don't want to know you and don't care about this life and as a result am patiently awaiting death to confirm what has already happened. (I know it sounds morbid, but read the lyrics and think about it and you'll understand) I'm just so "over" what this society considers valuable and morally correct, so I'd rather not participate.

Sleep and dream of this.

Death angel's kiss.

Brings final bliss.

Completely...

Empty they say.

Death, won't you let me stay?

Empty they say.

Death, hear me call your name.

Call your name!

Suicide, I've already died.

You're just the funeral I've been waiting for.

Cyanide, living dead inside.

Break this empty shell forevermore.

Wait, wait patiently.

Your death-black wings.

Unfolding sleep.

Spreading over.

Say, is that rain or are they tears?

That stained your concrete face for years.

The crying, weeping, shedding strife.

Year after year, life after life.

An air of freshly broken ground.

A concrete angel laid right down.

Upon the grave which swallows fast.

It's peace at last, oh, peace at last.

Forevermore!

It's the funeral I've been waiting for!

(BTW, this song was actually written about alcoholism)

I've also been listening to "The Judas Kiss" a lot and trying to convince myself not to do exactly what the song says.

A few others:

"Holy War... The Punishment Due" by Megadeth appeals to me because I kinda feel like the guy in the song in relation to my tireless fighting for GM and my and my colleagues likely eventual censorship.

"Raining Blood" by Slayer has been spinning a lot too. This song just gives me a sense of empowerment.

"The Axe Shall Fall" by DevilDriver is a nice little revenge tune that gives me solace.

"Living Dead Beat" by Children of Bodom seems like a reflection of self and my attitude about life. I've been playing C.O.B. a lot lately.

But as far as relation to GM and the times, I think a few Lamb of God songs sum it up perfectly: (Bolded are the lines that I think DIRECTLY relate to the situation that this country is in... Think about it)

"As the Palaces Burn"

The fiends have gagged a generation of pacified fools.

Bound by our greed a nation enslaved as corporate tools.

Arise and raze the legacy of their lies.

To realize that this in itself is an ascension.

Towards the day we revolt.

As the seeds you've cast away take hold.

War will be born.

Rejoice, the age of the fall has begun.

We'll dance as the palaces burn.

A shot gun blast into the face of deceit.

You'll gain your just reward.

We'll not rest until the purge is complete.

You will reap what you've sown.

My redemption lies in your demise.

In such a world as this does one dare to think for himself?

The paradox of power and peace will destroy itself.

"Vigil"

Our father thy will be done.

I have denied this life its worth.

I will not be the victim.

Sickness to you my master

Here's to getting worse.

Hope it kills you faster.

Show me how it hurts to rot from the inside out.

This vigil burns.

Until the day our fires overtake you.

Our father we forsake you.

Blessed be his name.

Nothing now the same.

Ask me why I hate

Why I've prayed to see the nation that I loved disintegrate

And gladly give my life

That revolution regenerates.

In honor of the strife of those who've died

In generations before for your blood stained glory

I reject you

I deny you

I defy you to continue.

Smite the shepherd and the sheep will be scattered.

"Laid To Rest"

If there was a single day I could live... A single breath I could take.

I'd trade all the others away.

The blood's on the wall, so you'd might as well just admit it

And bleach out the stains, commit to forgetting it.

You're better off empty and blank, than left with a single pathetic trace of this.

Smother another failure, lay this to rest.

Console yourself, you're better alone

Destroy yourself, see who gives a f**k.

Absorb yourself, you're better alone

Destroy yourself.

I'll chain you to the truth, for the truth shall set you free.

I'll turn the screws of vengeance and bury you with honesty.

I'll make all your dreams come to life, then slay them as quickly as they came.

Failure.

"Now You've Got Something To Die For" (One of my all time favorites -- It sums up all politicians)

Now you've got something to die for.

Infidel, Imperial.

Lust for blood, a blind crusade.

Apocalyptic, we count the days.

Bombs to set the people free, blood to feed the dollar tree.

Flags for coffins on the screen, oil for the machine.

Army of the liberation, gunpoint indoctrination.

The fires of sedition.

Fulfill the prophecy.

Now you've got something to die for.

Send the children to the fire, sons and daughters stack the pyre.

Stoke the flame of the empire, live to lie another day.

Face of hypocrisy, raping democracy.

Apocalyptic, we count the days.

We'll never get out of this hole until we've dug our own grave.

And drug the rest down with us, the burning home of the brave.

Burn!

"Remorse is For the Dead"

The dirty lord of the manor surveys his filthy domain.

Too many nights raising hell worked a little all too well.

Constructed a monument to denial and excess.

Sunk so low, crawled so far back there's nowhere left to regress.

If these walls could talk, they would tell a horror story.

Never-ending winter, violence and infidelity.

Shadows fall through broken panes.

Careless words that are filled with hate.

Just enough to keep it together, never enough to make it work.

All the tongues here are forked.

We are a hailstorm of broken glass, follow the path of least expectancy.

A huge stinking pile of sick, pile it higher and higher.

Light the match, start the fire.

Level this place until nothing is left and take us with it.

Surroundings are irate.

Crack of dawn brings naught but pain.

Resentment steadily grows.

Laughing in the gallows.

Full throttle determined to fail, pedal to the metal asleep at the wheel.

We are the lucky ones, welcome home.

Poisoned nerves and a bloody antidote

Violence is not an aberration, it's a rule.

Dying beyond the pale.

Your beatings will continue until my morale improves.

I don't hate you, I'm just removing an enemy.

Remorse is for the dead, my enemy.

Remorse is for the dead.

Randy Blythe of Lamb of God is one of the best songwriters in metal IMO. 99% of his lyrics are about political and societal issues.

Since a few weeks before the "release" of

Chinese Democracy I've been listening to

G&R's Apetite & Illusion disks...

(who else on here bought Spaghetti Incident?) :P

My three favorites of all time from G&R:

1. Sweet Child

2. You Could be Mine

3. Night Train

Johnny Cash's cover of 'Hurt' always moves me. It is an awesome song, made even better by one of the best all-time singers.

Not too often does the cover song eclipse the original.

This is one of those rare times.

Night Train

by Guns & Roses, 1987

Loaded like a freight train

Flyin' like an aeroplane

Feelin' like a space brain

One more time tonight

Well I'm a west coast struttin'

One bad mother

Got a rattlesnake suitcase

Under my arm

Said I'm a mean machine

Been drinkin' gasoline

And honey you can make my motor hum

Well I got one chance left

In a nine live cat

I got a dog eat dog sly smile

I got a Molotov cocktail with a match to go

I smoke my cigarette with style

An I can tell you honey

You can make my money tonight

Wake up late honey put on your clothes

Take your credit card to the liquor store

That's one for you and two for me by tonight

I'll be loaded like a freight train

Flyin' like an aeroplane

Feelin' like a space brain

One more time tonight

I'm on the nightrain

Bottoms up

I'm on the nightrain

Fill my cup

I'm on the nightrain

Ready to crash and burn

I never learn

I'm on the nightrain

I love that stuff

I'm on the nightrain

I can never get enough

I'm on the nightrain

Never to return - no

Loaded like a freight train

Flyin' like an aeroplane

Speedin' like a space brain

One more time tonight

I'm on the nightrain

And I'm lookin' for some

I'm on the nightrain

So's I can leave this slum

I'm on the nightrain

And I'm ready to crash an' burn

Nightrain

Bottoms up

I'm on the nightrain

Fill my cup

I'm on the nightrain

Whoa yeah

I'm on the nightrain

Love that stuff

I'm on the nightrain

An I can never get enough

Ridin' the nightrain

I guess I

I guess, I guess, I guess I never learn

On the nightrain

Float me home

Ooh I'm on the nightrain

Ridin' the nightrain

Never to return

Nightrain

------

You learn something new every day.... here

I've been thinking for YEARS that Axl sings

Take your LEADED CAR to the liquor store

when I guess it's actually:

Take your credit card to the liquor store

Carz on teh Brein :P
