      My favourite Beatles lyric

      In My Life

      There are places I remember
      All my life though some have changed
      Some forever not for better
      Some have gone and some remain
      All these places had their moments
      With lovers and friends I still can recall
      Some are dead and some are living
      In my life I've loved them all

      But of all these friends and lovers
      There is no one compares with you
      And these memories lose their meaning
      When I think of love as something new
      Though I know I'll never lose affection
      For people and things that went before
      I know I'll often stop and think about them
      In my life I love you more

      Though I know I'll never lose affection
      For people and things that went before
      I know I'll often stop and think about them
      In my life I love you more
      In my life I love you more

      Their debut album was fantastic.
      Then they vanished up their own arse

      Yeah, I remember when Sam's Town was coming out, Brandon Flowers was saying how it was going to be one of the greatest albums of all time and all this. It wasen't.

      back when I didn't drink, I useta like these lyrics a lot.

      "They say the devils water it ain't so sweet,
      you don't have to drink right now,
      but you can dip your feet
      every once in a little while"

      KateMKD_Red also likes it ;D
      You know mate there are many threads in here, most favorite album, top 5 whatever, most favorite band, but I haven't posted in them cause truth being told I am a very indecisive person in that area. But when I saw this tread, I knew, without a doubt what was gonna be my first choice  ;)

      I'll go for a less introspective lyrics, but still very beautiful in my eyes. It's about the Spanish Civil War.


      The Clash - Spanish Bombs

      Spanish songs in Andalucia
      The shooting sites in the days of '39
      Oh, please, leave the vendanna open
      Fredrico Lorca is dead and gone
      Bullet holes in the cemetery walls
      The black cars of the Guardia Civil
      Spanish bombs on the Costa Rica
      I'm flying in on a DC 10 tonight

      Spanish bombs, yo te quiero infinito
      yo te acuerda oh mi corazon
      Spanish bombs, yo te quiero infinito
      yo te acuerda oh mi corazon

      Spanish weeks in my disco casino
      The freedom fighters died upon the hill
      They sang the red flag
      They wore the black one
      But after they died it was Mockingbird Hill
      Back home the buses went up in flashes
      The Irish tomb was drenched in blood
      Spanish bombs shatter the hotels
      My senorita's rose was nipped in the bud

      The hillsides ring with "Free the people"
      Or can I hear the echo from the days of '39?
      With trenches full of poets
      The ragged army, fixin' bayonets to fight the other line
      Spanish bombs rock the province
      I'm hearing music from another time
      Spanish bombs on the Costa Brava
      I'm flying in on a DC 10 tonight

      Spanish songs in Andalucia, Mandolina, oh mi corazon
      Spanish songs in Granada, oh mi corazon

      I've been a moonshiner,
      For seventeen long years,
      I've spent all my money,
      On whiskey and beer,
      I go to some hollow,
      And sit at my still
      And if whiskey dont kill me,
      Then I dont know what will,

      I go to some bar room,
      And drink with my friends,
      Where the women cant follow,
      And see what I spend,
      God bless them pretty women,
      I wish they was mine,
      Their breath is as sweet as,
      The dew on the vine,

      Let me eat when I am hungry,
      Let me drink when I am dry,
      A dollar when I am hard up,
      Religion when I die,
      The whole world's a bottle,
      And life's but a dram,
      When the bottle gets empty,
      It sure aint worth a damn.

      Lyrics-wise, Lupe Fiasco is definitely my favourite artist. Unlike other rappers, his lyrics aren't shallow. For example:

      'Words I Never Said'

      [feat. Skylar Grey]

      [Skylar Grey:]
      It's so loud Inside my head
      With words that I should have said!
      As I drown in my regrets
      I can't take back the words I never said
      I can't take back the words I never said

      [Verse 1: Lupe Fiasco]
      I really think the war on terror is a bunch of bullshit
      Just a poor excuse for you to use up all your bullets
      How much money does it take to really make a full clip
      9/11 building 7 did they really pull it
      Uhh, And a bunch of other cover ups
      Your childs future was the first to go with budget cuts
      If you think that hurts then, wait here comes the uppercut
      The school was garbage in the first place, that's on the up and up
      Keep you at the bottom but tease you with the uppercrust
      You get it then they move you so you never keeping up enough
      If you turn on TV all you see's a bunch of "what the fucks"
      Dude is dating so and so blabbering bout such and such
      And that ain't Jersey Shore, homie that's the news
      And these the same people that supposed to be telling us the truth
      Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist
      Gaza strip was getting bombed, Obama didn't say sh*t
      That's why I ain't vote for him, next one either
      I'm a part of the problem, my problem is I'm peaceful
      And I believe in the people.

      [Verse 2: Lupe Fiasco]
      Now you can say it ain't our fault if we never heard it
      But if we know better than we probably deserve it
      Jihad is not a holy war, wheres that in the worship?
      Murdering is not Islam!
      And you are not observant
      And you are not a muslim
      Israel don't take my side cause look how far you've pushed them
      Walk with me into the ghetto, this where all the Kush went
      Complain about the liquor store but what you drinking liquor for?
      Complain about the gloom but when'd you pick a broom up?
      Just listening to Pac ain't gone make it stop
      A rebel in your thoughts, ain't gon make it halt
      If you don't become an actor you'll never be a factor
      Pills with million side effects
      Take em when the pains felt
      Wash them down with Diet soda!
      Killin off your brain cells
      Crooked banks around the World
      Would gladly give a loan today
      So if you ever miss payment
      They can take your home away!

      [Verse 3: Lupe Fiasco]
      I think that all the silence is worse than all the violence
      Fear is such a weak emotion that's why I despise it
      We scared of almost everything, afraid to even tell the truth
      So scared of what you think of me, I'm scared of even telling you
      Sometimes I'm like the only person I feel safe to tell it to
      I'm locked inside a cell in me, I know that there's a jail in you
      Consider this your bailing out, so take a breath, inhale a few
      My screams is finally getting free, my thoughts is finally yelling through

      Lyrics-wise, Lupe Fiasco is definitely my favourite artist. Unlike other rappers, his lyrics aren't shallow. For example:

      Bit of generalisation there.  There's a ton of great rappers whose lyrics aren't shallow (Lupe himself included).

      Generally speaking, most of my friends aren't fans of rap but most will usually like a few (not all) of the tracks I'll play for them.  The one that people usually are blown away by is "Dance with the Devil" by Immortal Technique.  Granted, it's quite long but the backing music is "A Love Story" by Henry Mancini which is quite pleasant.

      Immortal Technique - Dance With the Devil (Full Version w/ Lyrics and Hidden Track ft. Diabolic)

      One of the most raw and lifelike personifications of the ghetto and the mentality that plagues what the hip hop industry and it's followers have become.

      I totally agree with you on Immortal Technique.

      I mostly listen to rap music, but I still think most rap songs are shallow. I'm a big fan of the Game as well...

      A Song For Bob Dylan

      Oh, hear this Robert Zimmerman
      I wrote a song for you
      About a strange young man called Dylan
      With a voice like sand and glue
      Some words of truthful vengeance
      They could pin us to the floor
      Brought a few more people on
      And put the fear in a whole lot more

      And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
      Or the moment of truth in your lies
      When everything seems like the movies
      Yeah you bleed just to know your alive

      And I don't want the world to see me
      Cause I don't think that they'd understand
      When everything's made to be broken
      I just want you to know who I am

      Billy Joel has written some amazing stuff. This is a tale about being a soldier in Vietnam. It is one of his most amazing live concert songs(once it hits the 2nd half), with deafening helicopter sounds and "searchlights" as the song begins. Some of the people on stage in the video below are survivors of the 9/11 tragedy in NY.

      Goodnight Saigon lyrics

      We met as soulmates
      On Parris Island
      we left as inmates
      from an asylum
      and we were sharp
      as sharp as knives
      and we were so gung ho to lay down our lives.

      We came in spastic
      like tameless horses
      we left in plastic
      as numbered corpses
      and we learned fast
      to travel light
      our arms were heavy but our bellies were tight

      we had no homefront
      we had no soft soap
      they sent us Playboy
      they gave us Bob Hope
      we dug in deep
      and shot on sight
      and prayed to Jesus Christ with all of our might.

      We had no cameras
      to shoot the landscape
      we passed the hash pipe
      and played our Doors tapes
      and it was dark..
      so dark at night
      and we held onto each other
      like brother to brother
      we promised our mothers we'd write

      (chorus)
      and we would all go down together
      we said we'd all go down together
      yes we would all go down together.

      Remember Charlie?
      remember Baker?
      they left their childhood
      on every acre
      and who was wrong,
      and who was right?
      It didn't matter in the thick of the fight,...

      We, held the day,..
      in the palm of our hands
      They, ruled the night
      And the night, seemed to last as long as six weeks
      On Parris Island
      We held the coastline
      they held the highland
      and they were sharp
      as sharp as knives
      they heard the hum of the motors
      they counted the rotors
      and waited for us to arrive

      (repeat chorus)

      Take me out tonight
      because I want to see people
      and I want to see life
      driving in your car
      oh please don't drop me home
      because it's not my home, it's their home
      and I'm welcome no more

      And if a double-decker bus
      crashes in to us
      to die by your side
      is such a heavenly way to die
      and if a ten ton truck

      to die by your side
      well the pleasure, the privilege is mine

      Brilliant song that, used to love a version John Power did of this back in the 90's when he was with Cast.

      I remember having to perform in a big concert with thousands of school kids when I was very young and there was a Beatles medley in the middle. I was captivated by these lyrics for years:

      "Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been
      Lives in a dream
      Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
      Who is it for?

      All the lonely people
      Where do they all come from?
      All the lonely people
      Where do they all belong?"

      Because now I only see my dreams in everything I touch
      Feel their cold hands on everything that I love
      Cold like some magnificent skyline
      Out of my reach but always in my eye line

      When we fall in love
      We're just falling
      In love with ourselves
      We're spiralling
      We're tumbling down

      Keane - Spiralling
