It was played on album oriented stations so that counts. I remember it I just can't think of the song right now

Don't know the title but then I never did like the stones to much. unless it was covered by Flying Burrito brothers also which would make it dead flowers but I think that's another song.

Once beneath the stars, the universe was ours. Love was all we knew, and all I knew was you. I wonder where you are, I wonder if you think about me Once upon a time, IN YOUR WILDEST DREAMS. It mig

What's all these crazy questions they're asking me?  "Mama Told Me Not to Come" TDN

George do you want to go again?  I know you said that you were thinking this was Songs remembered from just one line.  So if you want to go ahead and take another turn it's alright with me.

He blesses the boys as they stand in line
The smell of gun grease and their bayonets they shine
He's there to help them all that he can
To make them feel wanted he's a good holy man

You're soldiers of God you must understand
The fate of your country is in your young hands
May God give you strength do your job real well
If it all was worth it only time it will tell

He's there to help them all that he can
To make them feel wanted he's a good holy man
 
He smiles at the young soldiers tells them it's all right
He knows of their fear in the forthcoming fight
Soon there'll be blood and many will die
Mothers and fathers back home they will cry.
 
You're soldiers of God you must understand

He mumbles a prayer and it ends with a smile
The order is given
They move down the line
But he's still behind and he'll meditate
But it won't stop the bleeding or ease the hate
 
As the young men move out into the battle zone
He feels good, with God you're never alone
He feels tired and he lays on his bed
Hopes the men will find courage in the words that he said.

That must be about the whole song by now.  I still do not recognize it.

Not quite.  It's a 7 minute plus song.

In the morning they return
With tears in their eyes
The stench of death drifts up to the skies
A soldier so I'll looks at the sky pilot
Remembers the words
"Thou shalt not kill"

Oops, I gave it away.   I think that line is a misprint.  It's "A young soldier so ill looks up at the Sky Pilot"

This is Natalie Imbruglia's "lying naked on the floor" song.   Actually, the title is "TORN", but it's amazing how often I've heard it referred to by the "other name."   Strictly speaking, it's a COVER of "Torn", but I never remember the name of the singer who wrote it.     Somewhere, there's a video of this song with clips of Gumby edited to match the lyrics.

Next song.

 

"You don't need a penny just to hang around.
But if you've got a nickel, won't you lay your money down?
Over on the corner there's a happy noise.
People come from all around to watch the magic boy."

Down on the Corner by CCR.

The colors of the rainbow
So pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces
Of people going by
I see friends shaking hands, saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying, "I love you"

"What a Wonderful World"  Satchmo

You were working as a waitress in a cocktail bar
When I met you
I picked you out, I shook you up
And turned you around
Turned you into someone new

 

 

"I was working as a waitress in a cocktail bar, that much is true. But even then I knew I'd find a much better place, either with or without you."

This is "DON'T YOU WANT ME," by- I think- the Human League.    Neat lyrics.

Next song.

"Don't cry for me, next door neighbor."

 

"Oh, Danny boy, Danny boy, Danny boy!"

 

 

(Anyone guessing "Danny Boy" as the song will get his nose honked.)

"Oh, Danny boy, Danny boy, Danny boy!"

 

"He drinks a whiskey drink, he drinks a vodka drink, he drinks a lager drink, he drinks a cider drink, He sings the songs that remind him of the good times, he sings the songs that remind him of the best times."
