My personal favourite is:

"Gravity keeps my head down, or is it maybe shame. For being so damn young and, being so vain."

Great lyric from the Manic Street Preachers in their song If You Tolerate This.

Whats your fave?

I hate touchy feely lyrics: I love weird ones though...the best lyrics are by radiohead, Thom york rather, and the new album is cool: "scatterbrain" , "Suck Yound blood" , "Myxamatosis" gives you any idea.

I think that The Bends is one of the greatest albums of all time. Hail To The Theif is a great album but I don't think that it is anywhere near O.K Computer or The Bends.

I hated Hail (as much as amnesiac and Kid A) but as I listened to it more and more, I realised it is sooo musical like therez many, dare I say, layers to it. It takes time to get into but once your there its almost as good as the bends.

PS whats your favourite radiohead track?

"I'm the dandy highwayman so sick of easy fashion
The clumsy boots, peek-a-boo roots that people think so dashing
So what's the point of robbery when nothing is worth taking?
It's kind of tough to tell a scruff the big mistake he's making"

Well I just like that song in general...(Stand and Deliver- Adam Ant)...tis not my favourite- I don't have one...however tis a song that I have always much appreciated (am a great fan of 80s one-hit-wonder style songs...*sigh*)

My favorite track(s) is Fake Plastic Trees or Just (it kinda changes on a daily basis).

I also found Kid A to be utter ****e. I have tried to listen to the entire thing all the way through on many occasions but I never seem to manage it.........

Artist: Immortal Technique
Album: Revolutionary Vol. 1
Song: Dance With the Devil

[Verse 1]
I once knew a ***** whose real name was William
his primary concern, was making a million
being the illest hustler, that the world ever seen
he used to **** moviestars and sniff coke in his dreams
a corrupted young mind, at the age of thirteen
***** never had a father and his mom was a feen
she put the pipe down, but forever yeah she was sober
her sons heart simultaneously grew colder
he started hanging out selling bags in the projects
checking the young chicks, looking for hit and run prospects
he was fascinated by material objects
but he understood money never bought respect
he build a reputation cause he could hustle and steal
but got locked once it didn't hesitate to squeal
so criminals he chilled with didn't think he was real
you see me and niggaz like this have never been equal
I dont project my insurecurity's at other people
he feeded for props like addicts with pipes and needles
so he felt he had to prove to everyone he was evil
a fever minded young man with infinite potetial
the product of a ghetto breed capatalistic mental
coincidentally dropped out of school to sell weed
dancing with the devil, smoked until his eyes would bleed
but he was sick of selling trees and gave in to his greed

[Hook]
Everyone trying to be trife never face the consequences
you propably only did a month for minor offences
ask a ***** doing life if he had another chance
but then again there's always the wicked at new and advanced
dance forever with the devil on a code cell block
but thats what happens when you rape, murder and sell rock
devils used to be gods, angels that fell from the top
there's no diversity because we're burning in the melting pot

[Verse 2]
So Billy started robbing niggaz, anything he could do
he'd get his respect back, in the eyes of his crew
starting fights over little ****, up on the block
stepped up to selling mothers and brothers the crack rock
working overtime for making money for the crack spot
hit the jackpot and wanted to move up to cocaine
for filling the scarface fantasy stuck in his brain
tired of the block niggaz treating him the same
he wanted to be major like the cut throats and the thugs
but when he tried to step to 'em, niggaz showed him no love
they told him any mother****ing coward can sell drugs
any ***** ***** with a gun, can bust slugs
any ***** with a red shirt can front like a blood
even Puffy smoked the mother****er up in a club
but only a real thug can stab someone till they die
standing in front of them, starring straight into their eyes
Billy realized that these men were well guarded
and they wanted to test him, before business started
suggested raping a ***** to prove he was cold hearted
so now he had a choice between going back to his life
or making money with made men, up in the cife
his dreams about cars and ice, made him agree
a hardcore ***** is all he ever wanted to be
and so he met them friday night at a quarter to three

[Hook]

[Verse 3]
They drove around the projects slow while it was raining
smoking blunts, drinking and joking for entertainment
untill they saw a woman on the street walking alone
three in the morning, coming back from work, on her way home
and so they quietly got out the car and followed her
walking through the projects, the darkness swallowed her
they wrapped her shirt around her head and knocked her onto the floor
this is it kid now you got your chance to be raw
so Billy oaked her up and grapped the chick by the hair
and dragged her into a lobby that had nobody there
she struggled hard but they forced her to go up the stairs
they got to the roof and then held her down on the ground
screaming shut the **** up and stop moving around
the shirt covered her face, but she screamed the clouts
so Billy stomped on the *****, until he broken her jaw
the dirty *******s knew exactly what they were doing
they kicked her until they cracked her ribs and she stopped moving
blood leaking through the cloth, she cried silently
and then they all proceeded to rape her violently
Billy was meant to go first, but each of them took a turn
ripping her up, and choking her until her throat burned
a broken jaw mumbled for god but they weren't concerned
when they were done and she was lying bloody, broken and broos
one of them niggaz pulled out a brand new twenty-two
they told him that she was a witness of what she'd gone through
and if he killed her he was guaranteed a spot in the crew
he thought about it for a minute, she was practicly dead
and so he leaned over and put the gun right to her head

(Sample from "Survival of the Fittest" by Mobb Deep)
I'm falling and I can't turn back
I'm falling and I can't turn back

[Verse 4]
Right before he pulled the trigger, and ended her life
he thought about the cold pain with the platinum and ice
and he felt strong standing along with his new brothers
cocked the gat to her head, and pulled back the shirt cover
but what he saw made him start the cringine studder
cuz he was starring into the eyes of his own mother
she looked back at him and cried, cause he had forsaken her
she cried more painfully, than when they were raping her
his whole world stopped, he couldn't even contiplate
his corruption had succesfully changed his fate
and he remembered how his mom used to come home late
working hard for nothing, cause now what was he worth
he turned away from the woman that had once given him birth
and crying out to the sky cause he was lonely and scared
but only the devil responded, cause god wasn't there
and right then he knew what it was to be empty and cold
and so he jumped off the roof and died with no soul
they say death take you to a better place but I doubt it
after that they killed his mother, and never spoke about it
and listen cause the story that I'm telling is true
cuz I was there with Billy Jacobs and I raped his mom to
and now the devil follows me everywhere that I go
infact I'm sure he's standing among one of you at my shows
and every street cypher listening to little thugs flowe
he could be standing right next to you, and you wouldn't know
the devil grows inside the hearts of the selvish and wicked
white, brown, yellow and black colored is not restricted
you have a self destructive destiny when your inflicted
and you'll be one of gods children and fell from the top
there's no diversity because we're burning in the melting pot
so when the devil wants to dance with you, you better say never
because the dance with the devil might last you forever

The manics song in the post earlier is "My Little Empire" (If my memory is good -I don't listen to TIMTTMY very much).

I would get the CD out to check but I'm far too lazy to do that.

"Miss Jones taught me English but I think I just shot her son,
Cos he owed me money with a bullet in the chest you can not run.
Not he's bleeding in a vacant lot,
The one in the summer where we used to smoke pot.
I guess he didn't mean it,
but man, you should have it.
His flesh explode."

Not classic lyrics, granted. Down right scary lyrics. But the song sounds damn good. Slow Motion by Third Eye Blind. Go download it you will like it.

---------------------------------------

"I'm alive but tell me am I free,
I've got eyes but tell me can I see."

Good damn line! Taken from the Lifehouse song called Sky is Falling. Another good song. If you've not heard of them, give them a try you'll like it.

---------------------------------------

"Cry baby cry
Make your mother sigh
She's old enough to know better
So cry baby cry."

Seeing as I called this thread 'classic' song lyrics thought I should put in lyrics from a song not written in the last decade. It's Cry Baby Cry, by the Beatles. Their best song in my opinion... not that anyone will care!

---------------------------------------

"He spends his nights in California,
Watching the stars on the big screen.
And then he lies awake and he wonders,
Why can't that be me?
Cos in his life he's filled with all these good intentions,
He's left a lot of things he'd rather not mention right now..."

Anyone heard that song before? I'd be suprised. By a band called 3 Doors Down. Big in the US. Song is called Be Like That.

---------------------------------------

You can trust me not to think,
And not to sleep around,
And if you don't expect to much from me,
You might not be let down.
Cause all I really want is to be with you,
Feeling like I matter too,
If I hadn't blown the whole thing years ago,
I might be here with you.

I like my random US bands. This one is called Gin Blossoms, and the song is Hey Jealousy.

---------------------------------------

Well thats all from me for now. I'd love if any of you guys download either the Third Eye Blind, Lifehouse, or Gin Blossoms songs let me know what you think. They are all virtually, not completely, unheard of in this country. But then again UK music is all the same and on the whole is all ****...

All the best!

Ed
