I thought I'd start a thread for those songs that just grab a piece of your soul and don't let go. I just heard one of those songs, and it got me thinking that we need a place to put them.


Song - Out of My Head
Artist - Fastball



Sometimes I feel
Like I am drunk behind the wheel
The wheel of possibility
However it may roll
Give it a spin
See if you can somehow factor in
You know thereís always more than one way
To say exactly what you mean to say

Chorus:
Was I out of my head? was I out of my mind?
How could I have ever been so blind?
I was waiting for an indication
It was hard to find
Donít matter what I say only what I do
I never mean to do bad things to you
So quiet but I finally woke up
If youíre sad then itís time you spoke up too

Got a feeling inside (Can't explain)
It's a certain kind (Can't explain)
I feel hot and cold (Can't explain)
Yeah, down in my soul, yeah (Can't explain)

I said ... (Can't explain)
I'm feeling good now, yeah, but (Can't explain)

Dizzy in the head and I'm feeling blue
The things you've said, well, maybe they're true
I'm gettin' funny dreams again and again
I know what it means, but

Can't explain
I think it's love
Try to say it to you
When I feel blue

But I can't explain (Can't explain)
Yeah, hear what I'm saying, girl (Can't explain)

Dizzy in the head and I'm feeling bad
The things you've said have got me real mad
I'm gettin' funny dreams again and again
I know what it means but

Can't explain
I think it's love
Try to say it to you
When I feel blue

But I can't explain (Can't explain)
Forgive me one more time, now (Can't explain)

I said I can't explain, yeah
You drive me out of my mind
Yeah, I'm the worrying kind, babe
I said I can't explain

Song - Here's To The Night
Artist - Eve 6



So denied
So I lied
Are you the now or never kind
In a day
And a day love
I'm gonna be gone for good again
Are you willing
To be had
Are you cool
With just tonight

Here's a toast
To all those who hear me all too well

Here's to the nights
We felt alive
Here's to the tears
You knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon

Put your name
On the line
Along with place and time
Wanna stay
Not to go
I wanna ditch the logical


Here's a toast
To all those who hear me all too well

Here's to the nights
We felt alive
Here's to the tears
You knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon

All my time is froze in motion
Can't I stay an hour or two or more
Don't let me let you go
Don't let me let you go

Here's a toast
To all those who hear me all too well

Here's to the nights
We felt alive
Here's to the tears
You knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon
Too soon
Here's to the nights we felt alive
Here's to the tears you knew you'd cry
Here's to goodbye
Tomorrow's gonna come too soon

Song - What Happened?
Artist - Sublime

Wake up in the morning,
clock says half past one.
I have no sunglasses
As I step into the sun.

There's no recollection
of the evil things I've done.
My head feels like I musta' had some fun.

What happened?

Last thing I remember
I was chillin at a party.
Pinching girlie's asses
I was drinking recklessly.

I know I did something,
Lord what could it be?
Woke up in the morning
And all my friends hate me.

What happened?

What am I doing here?
Who is this girl in my bed?
What is this shit on my face?
My God, what is that awful smell?


She may be an angel.
She may be a queen.
She might be black, white, American, Indian or Japanese.

What happened?

Threw a bottle at the bouncer
Didn't think that he was cool.
Pissed in someone's drink
And threw a bike into a pool.

Driven down the side walk
Like a drunken possessed fool.
I broke every single traffic rule.

What happened?
What happened?

Let's go

JOHN MAYER - My Stupid Mouth Lyrics

My stupid mouth
Has got me in trouble
I said too much again
To a date over dinner yesterday
And I could see
She was offended
She said "well anyway..."
Just dying for a subject change

Oh, another social casualty
Score one more for me
How could I forget?
Mama said "think before speaking"
No filter in my head
Oh, what's a boy to do
I guess he better find one soon

We bit our lips
She looked out the window
Rolling tiny balls of napkin paper
I played a quick game of chess with the salt and pepper shaker
And I could see clearly
An indelible line was drawn
Between what was good, what just slipped out and what went wrong

Oh, the way she feels about me has changed
Thanks for playing, try again.
How could I forget?
Mama said "think before speaking"
No filter in my head
Oh, what's a boy to do
I guess he better find one

I'm never speaking up again
It only hurts me
I'd rather be a mystery
Than she desert me

Oh I'm never speaking up again
Starting now

One more thing
Why is it my fault?
So maybe I try too hard
But it's all because of this desire
I just wanna be liked
I just wanna be funny
Looks like the jokes on me
So call me captain backfire

Oh, the way she feels about me has changed
Thanks for playing, try again.
How could I forget?
Mama said "think before speaking"
No filter in my head
Oh, what's a boy to do
I guess he better find one

I'm never speaking up again
It only hurts me
I'd rather be a mystery
Than she desert me

Oh I'm never speaking up again
Starting now

The first verse of Desolation Row. A few months ago the missus and I went to an event at the something-or-other club above MSG. At MSG that night Ringling Bros was doing their thing. When we left, the place was a total disaster with cotton candy cones and crap swirling about and the souvenir hawkers still doing their thing way past the point any child should be up and the NYPD standing around with nothing to do. In any event, the following verse popped into my head and seemed so apropos:

They're selling postcards of the hanging
They're painting the passports brown
The beauty parlor is filled with sailors
The circus is in town
Here comes the blind commissioner
They've got him in a trance
One hand is tied to the tight-rope walker
The other is in his pants
And the riot squad they're restless
They need somewhere to go
As Lady and I look out tonight
From Desolation Row

Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin' high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
"We'll meet on edges, soon," said I
Proud 'neath heated brow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Half-wracked prejudice leaped forth
"Rip down all hate," I screamed
Lies that life is black and white
Spoke from my skull. I dreamed
Romantic facts of musketeers
Foundationed deep, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Girls' faces formed the forward path
From phony jealousy
To memorizing politics
Of ancient history
Flung down by corpse evangelists
Unthought of, though, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

A self-ordained professor's tongue
Too serious to fool
Spouted out that liberty
Is just equality in school
"Equality," I spoke the word
As if a wedding vow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

In a soldier's stance, I aimed my hand
At the mongrel dogs who teach
Fearing not that I'd become my enemy
In the instant that I preach
My pathway led by confusion boats
Mutiny from stern to bow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats
Too noble to neglect
Deceived me into thinking
I had something to protect
Good and bad, I define these terms
Quite clear, no doubt, somehow.
Ah, but I was so much older then,
I'm younger than that now.

Bob was just on fire back then when he was younger (or older).

I read that the 'Another Side' album was recorded all in a single night. To have done that and 'Chimes of Freedom' ... on the same day. Wow.

Not only recorded in one day but all of the songs were written over a one-week period. Chimes of Freedom, My Back Pages, It Ain't Me Babe, Ballad in Plain D, etc., crankin' them right out.

Comedian Steve Allen, when he was a struggling whatever, wrote 100 songs in one weekend on a bet.
None of them sing to me.

I heard this today for the first time in ages. I forgot just how much I love it -

Song - Kryptonite
Artist - Three Doors Down


I took a walk around the world to
Ease my troubled mind
I left my body laying somewhere
In the sands of time
I watched the world float to the dark
Side of the moon
I feel there is nothing I can do, yeah

I watched the world float to the
Dark side of the moon
After all I knew it had to be something
To do with you
I really don't mind what happens now and then
As long as you'll be my friend at the end

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I'm alive and well, will you be
There holding my hand
I'll keep you by my side with
My superhuman might
Kryptonite

You called me strong, you called me weak
But your secrets I will keep
You took for granted all the times I
Never let you down
You stumbled in and bumped your head, if
Not for me then you would be dead
I picked you up and put you back
On solid ground

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I'm alive and well will you be
There holding my hand
I'll keep you by my side with my
Superhuman might
Kryptonite

Cat Stevens - Wild World Lyrics
1. Now that I've lost everything to you
You say you want to start something new
And it's breaking my heart you're leaving, baby I'm grieving
But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you have a lot of nice things to wear
But then a lot of nice things turn bad out there

Ref.: Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
It's hard to get by just upon a smile
Oh, baby, baby it's a wild world
I'll always remember you like a child, girl

2. You know I've seen a lot of what the world can do
And it's breaking my heart in two
'Cos I never want to see you sad girl. don't be a bad girl
But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware

Ref.: Oh, baby,baby ...

3. Baby I love you
But if you want to leave take good care
Hope you make a lot of nice friends out there
But just remember there's a lot of bad and beware


Good luck, honey; you'll do fine. I miss you

What Youíd Call A Dream
Music and Lyrics by Craig Carnelia (from DIAMONDS)

There are 2 men out
And itís in the 9th
And the score is 4 to 3

Thereís a man on 1st
And a man at bat
And the man at bat is me

And Iím sorta scared
And Iím sorta proud
And Iím stronger than I seem

And I take a swing
And my dad is there
And itís what youíd call a dream

For the ball flies in the sun
And it sails off as I run

The crowd is roaring, cheering as I go
So are all the guys on the team
And I run for home
And we win the game
And itís what youíd call a dream

And the sun
Shines like diamonds

The summer sun
Shines like diamonds

The summer sun,
High in a baseball sky,
Shines like diamonds

And the sun
Shines like diamonds

There are 2 men out
And itís in the 9th
And the score is 4 to 3

Thereís a man on 1st
And a man at bat
And the man at bat is me

And itís what youíd call a dream

Song - I'll Stand By You
Artist - The Pretenders


Oh, why you look so sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Donít be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
ícause Iíve seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you
You donít know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me love you less

Iíll stand by you
Iíll stand by you
Wonít let nobody hurt you
Iíll stand by you

So if youíre mad, get mad
Donít hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry too
Well Iím a lot like you
When youíre standing at the crossroads
And donít know which path to choose
Let me come along
ícause even if youíre wrong

Iíll stand by you
Iíll stand by you
Wonít let nobody hurt you
Iíll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And Iíll never desert you
Iíll stand by you

And when...
When the night falls on you, baby
Youíre feeling all alone
You wonít be on your own

Iíll stand by you
Iíll stand by you
Wonít let nobody hurt you

Iíll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And Iíll never desert you
Iíll stand by you
Iíll stand by you
Wonít let nobody hurt you
Iíll stand by you
Wonít let nobody hurt you
Iíll stand by you
