Name that Tune

Recommended Posts

"You better make your face up in
Your favourite disguise,
With your button down lips and your
Roller blind eyes
With your empty smile
And your hungry heart.
Feel the bile rising from your guilty past
With your nerves in tatters
As the cockleshell shatters
And the hammers batter
Down your door."

" You better run all day
And run all night
And keep your dirty feelings
Deep inside. And if you're
Takin' your girlfriend
Out tonight
You better park the car
Well out of sight
'Cause if they catch you in the back seat
Trying to pick her locks
They're gonna send you back to mother
In a cardboard box. You better run."

Same artist, different song.

"With.  Without.
And who'll deny

it's what the fighting's all about?

Out of the way
It's a busy day
I've got things on my mind
For want of the price
Of tea and a slice
The old man died."

"Me. And you.
God only knows

it's not what we would choose to do

"Forward!" he cried
From the rear
And the front rank died
And the general sat
And the lines on the map
Moved from side to side."

["Down. And out.
It can't be helped

but there's a lot of it about.

With.  Without.
And who'll deny

it's what the fighting's all about?

Out of the way
It's a busy day
I've got things on my mind
For want of the price
Of tea and a slice
The old man died."

b]Black. And blue.
And who knows which is which and who is who?

Up. And down.
And in the end it's only round and round and round.

"Haven't you heard
It's a battle of words?"
The poster bearer cried.
"Listen, son,"
Said the man with the gun,
"There's room for you inside."" [/b]

Funny thing and the jokes on me.  Oh, this is Us and Them ~Pink Floyd~  but Dickens opening line from "A Tale of Two Cities" says it best.  "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times".  I'm talking about logging in on GS for the last two or three years!  "It was the best of times" because I could share and cherish times with the people here on GSC, "it was the worst of times" because I couldn't access the website for some sticky reason which meant constantly having to re-login myself through my email (if you play on this board then you are familiar with what I'm saying) again and again.  Anyway I found that sticky thing that was causing it.   :dance:

I wasn't putting any space between the words in my username.  So now I can login to the site again, and stay logged in, no problem.

OK  My turn.

Just a sec.

I live uptown, I live downtown

I live all around

I had money, yeah, I had none

I had money, yeah, I had none

But I've never been so broke that I couldn't left town.

Well, I'm the air you breath
Food you eat
Friends your greet
In the sullen street

You gotta see me change
See me change
I'm leavin' town

New song, same group.

I see your hair is burnin'
Hills are filled with fire
If they say I never loved you
You know they are a liar
Drivin' down your freeways
Midnight alleys roam
Cops in cars, the topless bars

This rings a bell.   Lined 3 &4, and the last 2 lines sound vaguely familiar.  I'll have to keep working on them and see if my memory cooperates.

Never saw a woman
So alone, so alone
So alone, so alone
Motel money, murder madness
Let's change the mood from glad to sadness

I was confusing this for "Light My Fire," by The Doors, but this obviously is not that song.   It is "L.A. WOMAN" by The Doors.

(Both songs have a line about a liar.)

It is "Light My Fire", no its not, it is "L A. Woman" from ~The Doors~ album of the same name.  The other post was The Doors song "Changeling", L. A. Woman's opening track. 

Your up.

I get to wishing that there was two of you.
My heart cries out,  'More, baby!'
I love you so much.
I wish that there was more of you to touch!

My heart cries out
'Woo, baby'.
It feels so nice.
I want your arms to wrap around me twice."

"Right or Wrong
Baby Right or Wrong
When you had to go I hated the thought
I always wish the night was twice as long
My heart cries out more baby
I love you so much
I wish that there was more of you to touch."

This song charted with the original artists.  Decades later, it charted with a cover that was on a teen movie soundtrack.

You lost me WordWolf after the 3rd line.   Reveal or pick another perhaps by the same artist which you have been known to do.  Or, perhaps like me, just pass on it and go on to another song.

Ok, different song, but same artist.  (AFAIK, the original artist for both songs, although they've both been covered since then.)

 

"Too many teardrops for one heart to be crying .

Too many teardrops for one heart to carry on.

You're way on top now since you left me.

You're always laughing way down at me.

But watch out now, I'm gonna get there.

We'll be together for just a little while.

And then I'm gonna put you way down there."[/b]
