We're stuck?
Ok
Neil Young - Old Man

I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth
The north side of my town faced east, and the east was facing south
And now you dare to look me in the eye
Those crocodile tears are what you cry
It's a genuine problem, you won't try
To work it out at all you just pass it by, pass it by

Ha! That's funny, Gregor ... I quoted lyrics from Substitute earlier in this thread.

Oh...i'll probably missed it!
The Who's early "mod" period is something that I cannot stop listening ...

One Way Out - Allman Brothers

I'll wait in this place where the sun never shines;
Wait in this place where the shadows run from themselves.

Additional quote:

"You got me trapped woman, up on the second floor;
If I get by this time, I won't be trapped no more.
So raise your window, and I can ease out soft and slow.
And lord, your neighbors, no they won't be
Talking that stuff that they don't know."

White Room - Cream

But the Bedouin they brought out
The electric camel drum
The local guitar picker
Got his guitar picking thumb
As soon as the Sharif had cleared the square
They began to wail
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Rock The Casbah - The Clash

The traffic lights they turn blue tomorrow
And shine their emptiness down on my bed
The tiny island sags downstream
'Cause the life that they lived is dead

That's Hendrix. "The Wind Cries Mary"


Baby we ain't the first
I'm sure a lot of other lovers been burned
Right now it seems real to you, but it's
One of those things you gotta feel to be true

Ha! One of my ex-girlfriends used to dance to this!

Tom Petty - Refugee.

If the real thing don't do the trick
You better make up something quick
You gonna burn it out to the wick

Just saw them last summer. Heart - Barracuda

Gonna buy a tank and an aeroplane
When she catches up with me
Won't be no time to explain
She thinks I've been with another woman
And that's enough to send her half insane

They were great! Ann's voice was as strong as ever and Nancy was spot on with her harmonies and guitar playing. They did all their greatest hits and it sounded like the album. They did Zepplin for their encore and blew it out of the park.

BTW if you like female Zepplin bands, check this out!

Thanks for sharing that, Daryl! Great band. And you gotta love a hard-hitting female drummer!

BTW you've stumped me again on the lyrics. The crazy things is, most of the time when the answers are revealed, it's an "I knew that!" moment. But reading them out of context can be really tricky.

I was wondering if this one was a little obscure. The song wasn't mainstream but the album sure was. It's "My Wife" off the "Who's Next" Album by The Who.

How about this...
So if you wake up with the sunrise, and all your dreams are still as new,
And happiness is what you need so bad, girl, the answer lies with you.

It's the lack of rhythm. When I read the lyrics from Barracuda it was, I've heard this thousands of time. But nothing. As soon as I read the answer, the rhythm jumped into my head and I heard the song. I'm continually surprised by the thread. (And this, by the way, is why the less famous songs are way way harder than the top tens.)

Magnus has hit the nail on the head!

When you see a written lyric like: "In the eyes of the world ..." it can really throw you, because we don't know where the line starts rhythmically. The words "In the ..." could be a pick-up, so that the word "eyes" lands on a downbeat. Or there could be an eighth-note pause on beat one, followed by the phrase "In the eyes of the world..." as a subsequent 8-th note melodic phrase. And so many other variables.

So the lack of rhythm is a key element in causing our confusion. Unless, of course, one knows a particular song backwards from years of listening and enjoyment.
