OVERHEARD? NEVER!

'Ello 'ello 'ello, presenting for my infotainment, a sample of song snippets that continuously play in moy 'ead ...
perhaps you will recognise a few...
usually it's like flippin' around the radio dial and only my fave part of the song is audible...
(but every now and then I get to hear the whole song)....
try this.. hear the line and then switch..switch...
all at various volume levels of course...
I'll help you with the less familiar songs..OK...go...


"dabadadipdip ohhh, I use to be a lunatic"
Annie Lennox (No More I Love You)..

"Wherrrre are WE...
whaaaat the hellll"
Imogen Heap (Hide and Seek)...

"Wish I knew what you were looking for"
the Church (Under the Milky Way)...

"Keep your 'lectric eye on me babe"
Bowie (Moonage Daydream)...

"Don't sleep in the subway darlin'"
Petula Clark (guess?)...

"Texas chain saw massacreee, took my baby away from me"
Ramones...

"So I go, In-sane, like I al-ways do"
Lindsey Buckingham...

"Wouldn't it be good to be in your shoes,even if it was for just one day"
Nik Kershaw...

"I'm afraid of americans, I'm afraid of the world"
Bowie...

"Maybe I'm amazed at the way you love me all the time"
Sir Macca..

"little red corvette, baby you're much too fast"
his Purpleness...

"ooh what are these chains that are binding my arms, part of you dies each brick I lay"
Alan Parsons (Cask of Amantillado)...

"The leading horse is white,
the second horse is red,
the third one is a black,
the last one is a green"
Aphrodites Child (Four Horsemen)....

"Because a-something, a-some-a-how, a-some-a-where,
HAS GONE WRONG!"
Audience (You're not Smiling)..

"C'mon baby we ain't gonna live forever,
let me show you all the things that we could do"
Veronicas (Forever)...

"I'm highest bidder"
Weird Al (E-Bay it's a Backstreet Boys sendup)...

"yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah you touch my inner smile" Texas...

"what would you doooo, what would you do if I followed you"
Stone Temple Pilots (Sour Girl)....

"I'm gonna get myself, gonna get myself connected"
Stereo MCs....

"Regrets, I've 'ad a few,
but then agin',
too few to mention"
Sid Viscious (My Way)....

"I can't get to sleep, I think about the implications"
Men At Work (Overkill)....

and always, alldays
"Show me show me show me how you do that trick,
the one that makes me scream seasick"
the Cure.
I have to do my SNOOPY DANCE when I hear Just Like Heaven!

There it 'tis...a sample of the soundtrack of my life. There are certainly lots of oldies but thanks to my kids and my continuing curiousity, a few new ones are added from time to time, like the Fray, Bloc Party, Band Of Horses, Asher Lane, and Take That.

Some songs remind me of people, some just take me back, some simply take me away, and some just have such catchy frickin' hooks that I cannot delete them no matter how hard I try! I suppose that a few of them are like file folders that envelope emotional items and memories like FUN/SAD/WOO HOO etc..

I love having all of this music in my head and I don't have to destroy my ears with an MP3 player or my oldschool walkman.
because I can play these tunes really, really loud! ...

Name a few songs on your Soundtrack
that you can't erase...

  2. Hmmm....this inspires me to break my silence of lo these many months. Tunes, tunes, all day long. I have this one theme that keeps running in my head..."I've got a song that ain't got no melody. I'm gonna sing it to my friends..." which comes unbidden, and the only way I can get it to shut up is to play my oboe very very loudly...

  4. Loving this! I'd have to say my soundtrack at the moment is a complex mix of:

    "It was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor
    and I thought of ma and I wanted to get back there
    Your face, your race, the way that you talk
    I kiss you you're beautiful, I want you to walk"

    "The highway's jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive..."

    "Just then the whole kitchen exploded
    From boilin' fat
    Food was flying everywhere
    And I left without my hat"

    "Ooooooliver Crrromwell, Lord Protector of England
    AND HIS WARTS"

    ...don't know how that got in there...

  7. It changes day to day.
    But here's what's running through my head today:

    Let me keep spinning till I hit the ground
    Roll me over and let me go
    Running free with the buffalo"
    ~ Thin Lizzy, "Cowboy Song"

    "All your life you've been waiting for your chance
    Where you'll fit into the plan
    But you're the master of your own destiny
    So give and take the best that you can"
    ~ Triumph, "Fight the Good Fight"

    "When I'm out walking I strut my stuff yeah I'm so strung out"
    ~ Violent Femmes, "Blister in the Sun"

    "And even though you fool your souls
    Your conscience will be mine
    All mine"
    ~ Adam & The Ants, "Prince Charming"

  8. I'm going to be honest. I only know one of the artists you listed. Stone Temple Pilots.

    The one song I've had stuck in my head for a while is "Through Glass" by Stone Sour. I think you might like that one.

  9. BRILLIANT post!

    I'll probably post some songs later in response, but let's face it, you're my life's DJ.

    You know what songs I like better than I do myself. There's too many and I just don't have the brain power (or OCD abilities) you have, so feel free to list some of my faves.

    To list songs would be one thing. But you're asking for lyrics too, it seems.

    I'll try.

  10. "...You're old enough for killin' but you're too young for votin'..."
    Barry Maquire 'On the Eve of Destruction.'
    Still seems (sadly) appropriate after 40 odd years.
    And always the Habanera from Carmen. Many others in the woof...

  12. All depends on everything! I get songs stuck in my head based on what I've been listening to, a chance word somebody says, something I see in the street, a news article - anything with a word or phrase even vaguely similar to a song I know, and BAM that song is stuck in the head for days, or until the next random event dislodges it. My head is like living in a jukebox.

    ***I linger in the doorway
    our alarm clock screaming monsters calling widening

    tell there story...

    - Imaginary by Evanescence
