Name that Tune

Recommended Posts

Battleships confide in me and tell me where you are,
Shining, flying, purple wolfhound, show me where you are,
Lost in summer, morning, winter, travel very far,
Lost in musing circumstances, that's just where you are

Bands include Yes, Jethro Tull, King Crimson, Procul Harum and the Moody Blues, among others.

Ah.  I don't know what makes them "progressive," but I recognize the bands.  Definitely in my time frame.  Still don't know the song, though.

I presume that these lyrics are from the same song?

Death defying, mutilated armies scatter the earth,
Crawling out of dirty holes, their morals,
Their morals disappear

Yesterday a morning came, a smile upon your face
Caesar's palace, morning glory, silly human race,
On a sailing ship to nowhere, leaving any place,

Battleships confide in me and tell me where you are,
Shining, flying, purple wolfhound, show me where you are,
Lost in summer, morning, winter, travel very far,
Lost in musing circumstances, that's just where you are

Death defying, mutilated armies scatter the earth,
Crawling out of dirty holes, their morals,
Their morals disappear

I like Yes, but I really don't know a lot of their songs well, at least to name the lyrics.

Going to post another song?

I feel inclined to blow my mind
Get hung up, feed the ducks with a bun
They all come out to groove about
Be nice and have fun in the sun
 
New:
 
I'd like to go there now with you
You can miss out school - Won't that be cool
Why go to learn the words of fools?

I think someone is going to know this one:

 

What did you do there? - I got high
What did you feel there? - Well I cried
But why the tears there? - I'll tell you why - yyyyy
It's all too beautiful, It's all too beautiful
It's all too beautiful, It's all too beautiful
 
feel inclined to blow my mind
Get hung up, feed the ducks with a bun
They all come out to groove about
Be nice and have fun in the sun
 
I'd like to go there now with you
You can miss out school - Won't that be cool
Why go to learn the words of fools?

I can hear the whiney voice singing "It's all too beautiful," but I can't think of the title or performer.

Not too long ago I was watching a youtube video on Roku of this band playing this song. My 92 year old mother happened to be there and she loved it because the singer could play guitar, sing, and dance all at the same time. I didn't tell her what the lyrics meant, though.

Over Bridges of Sighs
To rest my eyes in shades of green
Under Dreaming Spires
To (TITLE OF SONG), that's where I've been
 
What did you do there? - I got high
What did you feel there? - Well I cried
But why the tears there? - I'll tell you why - yyyyy
It's all too beautiful, It's all too beautiful
It's all too beautiful, It's all too beautiful
 
feel inclined to blow my mind
Get hung up, feed the ducks with a bun

Be nice and have fun in the sun

You can miss out school - Won't that be cool
Why go to learn the words of fools?

Human without the bean, you are correct.  Itchykoo Park was a nickname for Little Ilford Park in London. The park had a flower called the stinging nettle which burned the skin if touched hence the reason Londoners nicknamed it itchycoo.

*looks it up*  I've never heard of this song, and I've never heard of this GROUP.

I'm glad somebody got it.  I'm not sure I've ever heard of the title OR the artist.

Yes you have heard it before WordWolf because I posted the same song in 2017.

If that's so, why did it take you so long to get it? :confused:

Well its like I said George I had another song in my head that I was thinking it was.  And why I am having to defend myself?  So if I can calculate this right it took something like just 24 hrs. to get this song.  Is that too long?  Its to late tonight to post a new one but I will have one up next day.  George I know you were just poking fun at me.  I get it.   :mooner:

Sorry for the wait.  Something came up.

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti

I seek to cure what's deep inside
Frightened of this thing that I've become

I hear the drums echoing tonight
But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation
She's coming in 12: 30 flight
The moonlit wings reflect the stars that guide me towards salvation

The wild dogs cry out in the night
As they grow restless longing for some solitary company
I know that I must do what's right
Sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti

I seek to cure what's deep inside
Frightened of this thing that I've become
