Mr. L's Lyric Challenge III

Hey Homebound Memorial Day celebrators..

Thought another lyric challenge will keep us entertained.

Post a song lyric you love. Put no titles or artists in the post.

If you want to guess someone's lyric, do not answer in the Thread Title. Place answers only in the body of the post so other people can have the opportunity of guess. ( Don't worry, some make that mistake. Someone will remind you not to post song title in thread title).

Repeats from other challenges okay. Try not to be too obscure, as half the fun is finding a kindred spirit who knows your tune. However, one person's obscure is another's playlist favorite.


I will start with a few songs:

1. And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind her tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years (Super Band for eternity)

2. Oh, mirror in the sky
What is love?
Can the child within my heart rise above?
Can I sail through the changin' ocean tides?
Can I handle the seasons of my life?

3. World pollution, there's no solution
Institution, electrocution
Just black and white, rich or poor
Them and us, stop the war (70's)

2. #1 - from my favorite band of all time and their (IMHO) second best album

The Beatles!

"For No One" from "Revolver"

"You want her, you need her
And yet you don't believe her
when she says her love is dead
You think she needs you"

I have no clue about the other two. Thanks, LakeArenal, for a very interesting challenge!

3. Here's a good one!

The Commander-in-Chief answers him while chasing a fly
Saying, "Death to all those who would whimper and cry."
And dropping a bar bell he points to the sky
Saying, "The sun's not yellow it's chicken."

7. One that was popular when I was a mere lad of 21...

The electrical dust is starting to rust
Her trapezoid thermometer taste
All the red tape is mechanical rape
Of the TV program waste


I have always thought of it as the first hip-hop song, from the most unlikely source imaginable!

17. Okay, no one got my third original song... But...

here are three more:

1.If you want some more then she's fast asleep
Leaves you twinkling with the stars
Poor young grandson, there's nothing I can say
You'll have to learn, just like me
And that's the hardest way. (70's)


2.
I'm all right Jack keep your hands off of my stack
XXXXX, it's a hit
Don't give me that do goody good bullshit
I'm in the high-fidelity first class traveling set
And I think I need a Lear jet (70's)

3. Every morning just before breakfast
I don't want no coffee or tea
Just me and good buddy Wiser
That's all I ever need
'Cause I xxxxx xxxxx, yeah
With nobody else
(I think 70's)

33. Well my last three went so quickly... Here's three more

1. Someday when we're dreaming,
Deep in love, not a lot to say.
Then we will remember
The things we said today. 70's Easy peasy.. Too easy for Heartstrings anyway...

2. So we're different colours and we're different creeds
And different people have different needs
It's obvious you hate me though I've done nothing wrong
I've never even met you, so what could I have done?

80's. Obscure to Americans I think. Although one song by this group, I've heard too often on a recent commercial

3. [(What did you do there?)] I got high
[(What did you feel there?)] Well, I cried
[(But why the tears there?)] Tell you why
It's all too beautiful
It's all too beautiful
It's all too beautiful
It's all too beautiful
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 Great 70's song..

44. I heard on the Beatles Channel

That any ear worm can be cured by singing Hey Jude.

It worked for my Peter Gabriel “Red Rain” ear worm I had the other day.

But didn’t work on Big Country yesterday.

👂🐉. Didn’t have a worm so I used a dragon. Ear Dragon sounds cooler. Didn’t you play with them back in the 80’s?

35. I remember having a "few"

In the bars of downtown Kent, then stumbling down to the laundromat to wash our clothes in my Kent State days. My friends and I used to sing this little Joe Walsh ditty. I still have the words implanted in my memory. I'm sure we sounded like a bunch of half assed drunks and it's a wonder they didn't throw us out of the place.

I got the All Night Laundry Mat Blues
Washin' everything I own except my shoes,
I got makeup round the collar
And it smells like sweat,
A dollar in the dryer
And it ain't dry yet!
If you wear clothes, you gotta pay the dues,
Yes you do,
I got the All Night Laundry Mat Blues

55. Can't believe no one got...

And in her eyes you see nothing
No sign of love behind her tears
Cried for no one
A love that should have lasted years (Super Human Group for the ages...)

Anyway, I'll post three more and go sleepy time... See you in the morning...

1. Walk along the river, sweet lullaby, it just keeps on flowing,
It don't worry 'bout where it's going, no, no.
Don't fly, mister blue bird, I'm just walking down the road,
Early morning sunshine tell me all I need to know (Really famous group)

2.Well is it any wonder that the stars don't just rush by
When you're only doin' 60 through this oh-so-vacant night
But it's lackin' something big this time
What the hell did you expect to find?
Aphrodite on a barstool by your side
Twelfth night we go
After something everyone should know
Somewhere in the distance out of sight
Then I saw gin mill rainfall
What do you remember if at all? 80's


3. When I think of Heaven, deliver me in a black-winged bird
I think of flying down in your sea of pens and feathers
And all other instruments of faith and sex and God
In the belly of a black-winged bird
Don't try to feed me
'Cause I've been here before
And I deserve a little more 80's

it's guilt edged
it's glamorous
it's sleek by design

it's jealous by nature
false and unkind
it's hard to restrain
and it's totally cool

as you stumble in the debris (pronounced daaaaay-ber-eeeeeezzzzze)

Hint 1: When this UK group's 2nd record was a smash hit in the 1980's, they re-released this gem from their first album, and it was another hit for them.
Hint 2: The average person would likely guess the song title is derived from the chorus, which connotes 'being fixated on someone', but it's really named for the first 4 words of the song, which are repeated to begin another of the later verses as well.
Hint 3: The video features the singer riding in a limousine, and messing with their hair in dramatic fashion, multiple times ...

The final movement, Wurm (where's my umlatt?) ... might be the most epic 'endlessly repeated 3-chord progression' in the history of rock, esp. when they did it live. They get a pass since 99% of their shit was amazingly complex, but for that stretch of that song, they just said 'fuck it, let's rock' ...

I SO SO SO wish their '70-'75 performances had been captured with today's recording technology ... or hell, even what they had in the 80's would've been GREAT. I hate the engineering and production job on Yessongs with a passion, cause you can just TELL ... these shows were SO KICK ASS ... but the sound is so sub-par.

160. More hints?

The 'hit' version was on the first (only?) solo album by youthful, handsome singer of a hugely successful British rock group.

The songwriter (who recorded it himself a bit later) was kinda a cheeseball British pop singer with a high voice who had some MASSIVE hits in the mid-late 70's, then everyone decided he was way uncool. Appeared on like the Muppets and stuff.

A few more lyrics ...

you find a nice soft corner
and ya set right down
take up your guitar and play
til policeman comes and says 'move along'
so ya
move along all day ...

This was the last song, on the last album, by this MEGA SELLING band ... well, the last album of the 'classic' 1970's edition of their career. They still play shows (a lot) and have put out 1 album since, like 30 years after the album that this particular song ... was the last song on, at the end of the 1970's.

I'll give ya a few moar lyrics ...

out of the silver light
the past came softly calling
and i remembered the times we spent

176. It actually does kinda make sense ... esp by song lyrics standards ;)

"they got a name for the winners in the world
and i want a name when i lose
they call Alabama the Crimson Tide
(so) call me Deacon Blues"

The U of Alabama collegiate sports programs name is The Crimson Tide. And their football program is a perennially successful one (winners).

'Deacon Blues' is a phrase akin to 'King of Pop' ... and when you 'lose', you might want to sing The Blues.

I don't think they sing 'so' right there, but I've always thought 'it's implied'.

See, it's not total nonsense at least

I don't like worship the Dan like some, but they had a lotta great tunes over the years. Aja is really good album top to bottom, IMHO. Probably the only one I've heard the whole thing TBH.

As you might already know, Steely Dan were quite literary. There is a novel by (i think) Edgar Rice Burroughs called "The Naked Lunch.”. In it there is a paragraph about this woman who has a favorite dildo that she calls “Steely Dan.” It is a pretty pornographic page. Anyway... Both Donald Fagan and Walter Becker have referred to it several times as the origin of their name. Pretty funny. I'll post a reference if available.

Well done ... love that record ... more college daze. Also love the follow-up Slow Turning ...both were on heavy rotation circa 1987 ...

Ry Cooder + John Hiatt = Win

Fact is it's just an amazing song as long as you don't change it much and sing it well, it's going to be good. Jewel's is no exception.

But I felt like it was 'my gem' for a long time til suddenly it 'got famous' (kinda like 'Thing Called Love', also his song, also the original version appearing on this record), so ... not even sure it was ever released as a single from John. Just a man and his piano, his voice, and his heart on his sleeve.

So f***ing good.

For any of you who've never heard the original, sung by the songwriter ...
