Im probably in the minority here but Im a big fan of the 80's group tears for fears.

One of their best songs is called Mad World. some of the lyrics are:

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
And their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I find it hard to tell you
'Cos I find it hard to take
When people run in circles
It's a very, very
Mad World

The cool thing about this song is the lyrics are very down beat, but the music is very fast and upbeat. Its very ironic. Anyway the reason I bring this up is a few years ago someone did a cover of this song for the movie "Donnie Darko" and im my opinion really ruined the songs appeal. He made the music as downbeat as the lyrics and killed the irony of it. Dont get me wrong his version is good its just not as "powerful" as the original version.

Nuh Uh! They were the first band I ever really listened to and called myself a fan of.

Be careful with this one, there is a bit of a pun involved. Dr. Spooner described his visit to a castle: "In the center of the fortress was the Palace Court. The gated entrance to this area was the court palace."

No. I'm hoping that it has a relation to The Notorious B.I.G.'s death, since the case has been reopened.

Let me be your wings
Let me be your only love
Let me take you far beyond the stars
Let me be your wings
Let me lift you high above
Everything we're dreaming of will soon be ours
Anything that you desire
Anything at all
Everyday I'll take you higher
And I'll never let you fall...


Oh shoot, I love that whole song as well as that whole movie. It's one of the most romantic songs I've ever heard. I would love to fly like a fairy with my love.

I have that song sitting on my computer. :) After listening to it a couple times, I'm reminded how much I like the guy's voice.
Everybody was a baby once, Arthur. Oh, sure, maybe not today, or even yesterday. But once. Babies, chum: tiny, dimpled, fleshy mirrors of our us-ness, that we parents hurl into the future, like leathery footballs of hope. And you''ve got to get a good spiral on that baby, or evil will make an interception.

Some more 2Pac lyrics.

Post by Skull13 » Mon Nov 27, 2006 5:31 am

Here's some more lyrics from 2Pac.

Thugz Mansion (Verse I)

A place to spend my quiet nights. Time to unwind.
So much pressure in this life of mine. I cry at times.
I once contemplated suicide, and woulda tried,
but when I held that 9, all I could see was my momma's eyes.
No one knows my struggle. They only see the trouble.
Not knowin it's hard to carry on when no one loves you.
Picture me inside the misery of poverty.
No man alive has ever witnessed struggles I survived.
Prayin hard for Better Dayz, promise to hold on.
Me and my dawgs ain't have a choice but to roll on.
We found a family spot to kick it.
Where we can drink liquor and no one bickers over trick s**t.
A spot where we can smoke in peace, and even though we G's,
we still visualize places, that we can roll in peace,
and in my mind's eye I see this place, the players go in fast.
I got a spot for us all, so we can ball, at Thugz Mansion.

This is a poem/song that was on the movie, Tupac Resurrection.

Fortune & Fame

Something we all adore.
It's the one thing worth dying for.
Nothing but Pain.
Stuck in this game.
Searching for Fortune & Fame.

Something we all adore.
The one thing we dying for.
Nothing but Pain.
Stuck in this game.
Searching for Fortune & Fame.

This used to be my playground
This used to be my childhood dream
This used to be the place I ran to
Whenever I was in need
Of a friend
Why did it have to end?
And why do
They always say
Don't look back.
Keep your head held high
Don't ask them why
Because life is short
And before you know
You're feeling old
And your heart is breaking
Don't hold on to the past
Well that's too much to ask...



This song makes me teary-eyed. :cry: I just feel the emotion in the song about leaving one's childhood.

To Each His Dulcinea/To Every Man His Dream (from Man of La Mancha)

To each his Dulcinea,
That he alone can make.
To each a secret hiding place,
Where he can find the haunting face
To light his secret flame.

For with his Dulcinea
Beside him, so to stand,
A man can do quite anything,
Outfly the bird upon the wing,
Hold moonlight in his hand.

But if you build your life on dreams,
It's prudent to recall,
A man with moonlight in his hands
Holds nothing there at all.

There is no Dulcinea.
She's made of flame and air.
And yet, how lovely life would seem,
If every man could weave a dream
to keep him from despair.

To each his Dulcinea,
Though she's only flame
And
Air.
This is one of my faves because it talks about how someone is considered "crazy" simply because they see life, not as it is, but how it should be. It also means that you shouldn't stop your dream just because it seems impossible.
The Music of the Night and Tuxedo Mirage are what keep me from going completely INSANE! (right...)

Smile

Post by Skull13 » Mon Jan 08, 2007 4:39 am

From Smile (Verse I)

[2Pac]
Our lifestyles be close captioned,
addicted to fatal attractions.
Pictures of actions be played back
in the midst of mashin'.
No fairy tales for this young black male.
Some see me stranded in this land of Hell, jail, and crack sales.
Hustlin too hard to think of culture,
or the repercussions while bustin on backstabbin vultures.
Sellin' my soul for material wishes, fast cars and b**ches.
Wishin' I live my life a legend, immortalized in pictures.
Why shed tears? Save your sympathy.
My childhood years were spent buryin' my peers in the cemetary.
Here's a message to the newborns, waitin' to breathe.
If you believe then you can achieve.
Just look at me.
Against All Odds, though life is hard we carry on,
livin' in the projects, broke with no lights on.
To all the seeds that follow me,
protect your essence.
Born with less, but you still precious.
Just Smile for me now!

Right now, my favorite song is Heart's These Dreams. So obviously, I like the lyrics, too. Not just a portion of the lyrics, but the entire thing:

Spare a little candle
Save some light for me
figures up ahead
Moving in the trees

White skin, in linen
Perfume on my wrist
And the full moon that hangs over
these dreams in the mist

Darkness on the edge
Shadows where I stand
I search for the time
On a watch with no hands

I want to see you clearly
Come closer than this
But all I remember
Are the dreams in the mist

{chorus}
These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night, I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
Every moment I'm awake, the further I'm away

Is it cloak 'n dagger
Could it be Spring or Fall
I walk without a cut,
Through a stained glass wall

Weaker in my eyesight
The candle in my grip
And words that have no volume
Falling from my lips

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night, I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
Every moment I'm awake, the further I'm away

There's something out there, I can't resist
I need to hide away from the pain
There's something out there, I can't resist

The sweetest song is silence
That I've ever heard
Funny how your feet in dreams
Never touch the earth
In a wood full of princes
Freedom is a kiss
But the prince hides his face
From dreams in the mist

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night, I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
Every moment I'm awake, the further I'm away

These dreams go on when I close my eyes
Every second of the night, I live another life
These dreams that sleep when it's cold outside
Every moment I'm awake, the further I'm away


To me, the lyrics combined with the music just sound powerful. Well, maybe not necessarily 'powerful', but their definitley good lyrics. I've always loved Heart, but I think this is easily one of the best songs they've ever made. The lyrics also obviously have some sort of a dark feel to them, but I can't help but listen to this song over and over again. <3

I apologize. I've been having computer problems. Anyway, I should discuss this now. The first verse of Thugz Mansion basically shows his sorrow of life and how his type of people could be saved. I don't know if I'm explaining it right. As for Fortune & Fame, it's actually from the Better Dayz album known as the chorus for Fame.

One thing we all adore,
something worth dying for,
nothing but pain,
stuck in this game,
searching for fortune and Fame.

If you think about it, it's actually what people really want in life. After all, who doesn't want fortune and Fame? As for Smile, he's giving a message to the newborns and at the same time, describing his lifestyle. To me, it's really touching. Anything else I need to mention, Tiff?

For some reason, yesterday I had Spike Jones' Little Bo Peep Has Lost Her Jeep going through my head alongside the Darkwing Duck theme.

Private Jackson had a girl he fondly called Bo-Peep
Now Jackson didn't have a car, so drove by in a jeep
They took a ride, the time flew by, and Bo-Peep was in heaven
Till Jackson cried "Bo-Peep, this jeep's gotta be in camp by eleven"

So little Bo-Peep has lost her jeep
And don't know where to find it
Her soldier boy took it back to camp
And left Bo-Peep behind it

It didn't have doors, the seats were hard
But Bo-Peep never minded
It didn't ride like a Cadillac
She wondered who designed it

Roller coasters nearly killed her
Aeroplanes they never thrilled her
But with Jackson at the wheel
She got that jeep, jeep, jeep appeal

Now little Bo-Peep wants to find her jeep
And find her soldier chappie
If he comes chug chug in his old blitz buggy
Bo-Peep will be happy

(Musical Break – Spike Jones Style)

Now little Bo-Peep has lost her jeep
Her boyfriend made an error
He let her drive, goodness, sakes alive
That Bo-Peep she's a terror

The throttle pushed down, she tore through town
The red lights didn't stop her
The soldier knew that they both were through
When she side-swiped a copper

(Car sounds - "Look Out" - Crash sound)

Now little Bo-Peep has lost her jeep
Oh my, why must her joy end
Now her little jeep is layin' in a heap
And the guard house has her boy friend
"That new girl? She seems kinda weird to me. And what kind of name is Buffy anyway?"
"Hey, Aphrodisia!"
--unaired Buffy pilot

If you're reading this, then you've lost the game.

"Precious Child" by Karen Taylor Good. I first heard the song in Health class, when a speaker came in and played a video tribute to her daughter who was killed by a drunk driver. I think this is the only song that can make me cry just by thinking about it.

Here is the song complete with the lyrics.

I just hope I never have to go through that.

Is he faithful to her? Hell no
But she chose to be with him, shorty

Gotta be treated as one of a kind
Girl use your mind
Don't be just another dime

Because

I can't take
Seeing you with him
'Cuz I know exactly what you'll be,
In his gallery
It's just not fair
And it's tearing me apart
You're just another priceless work of art
In his gallery

She's so confused
She knows she deserves more
Someone who will love and adore
But his money's hard to ignore
She really doesn't know what to do
Girl it's just a matter of time
Before he finds another more fine
After he's done dulling your shine
You're out the door and he's through with you

I've dealt with my ghosts and I've faced all my demons
Finally content with a past I regret
I've found you find strength in your moments of weakness
For once I'm at peace with myself
I've been burdened with blame, trapped in the past for too long
I'm movin' on


I've lived in this place and I know all the faces
Each one is different but they're always the same
They mean me no harm but it's time that I face it
They'll never allow me to change
But I never dreamed home would end up where I don't belong

I'm movin' on
At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
And I know there's no guarantees, but I'm not alone
There comes a time in everyone's life
When all you can see are the years passing by
And I have made up my mind that those days are gone


I sold what I could and packed what I couldn't
Stopped to fill up on my way out of town
I've loved like I should but lived like I shouldn't
I had to lose everything to find out
Maybe forgiveness will find me somewhere down this road
I'm movin' on
I'm movin' on...I'm movin' on



I love this song. It was my school’s Class of 2006 graduation song, and I don’t think there could have been a better choice. The lines in bold are my favorites. I think they apply to me in life. I sometimes hold on to the past instead of moving forward, and it’s time that I break that habit and move on. I still get teary-eyed whenever I listen to this.
