Holy crappa it's a the goddamn Air Supply, no? "Donna Lie to a the Dino, eh?"

How about a this a one?

"It's a that a time of a the year,
Leave alla our hopelessnesses aside
(iffa just a for a the little while, no?)
The tears, they stop right a here, eh?
The Dino knows, we've alla had a the bumpy ride
(anna I'm a secretly onna your side, no?)"

Yes. THERE people, see?! Even an old colostomy wearing hip mofo like Dino down the local nightclub shaking his maracas about onstage while chicks scream for him, knows the title to this song.

I was about to say that young chicks throw thier knickers at him like they do Tom Jones, but for Dino they don't do this.







































For Dino, they don't bother wearing any knickers.

How about this one...

Tearing up through life
Million miles an hour
Blinding all in sight
Surging rush of power.
Thunderbolt from hell
Shattering aloud.
Screamin' demons yell
Bursting through the clouds.

"Tell me what you can hear
And then tell me what you see
Everybody has a different way
To view the world

I would like you to know
When you see the simple things
To appreciate this life
It's not to late to learn

Don't want to be here
Somewhere I'd rather be
But when I get there
I might find it's not for me"

"You hunched and blinded mutants
living in chat rooms

You masturbate on the sheets
your mothers clean for you

You have lined my pockets
overflowed with gold

You're living with your parents
and you're 35 years old

You're a bunch of banks
that I'd like to rob

You're my online cash transaction
you're my future stocks

Transfer you like money
to a Swiss account

Spend you on an impulse
and zero you all out"

Teh 80's nostalgia!

TomTom Club's Genius of Love.

"JAMES BROWN JAMES BROWN JAMES BROWN"

Woah, I'm totally going to have to get my hands on a copy of this song- it's been donkey's years.



Now, in honour of CrankySolutions and his guilty crush on _________:


Wait! They don’t love you like I love you
Wait! They don’t love you like I love you
Ma-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-aps


Wait! They don’t love you like I love you

i...is it...

"Maps"?

by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs?

i'm pretty sure, just, ya' know, not positive...

:roll:

I walk around with no shirt on
The easiest way would be for you to lie face down
I'm a man
But I'm built like a horse from the waist down
People are afraid of me but act like they love me
Feast your eyes upon my nudity
I am Beauty AND the Beast
I have plenty to say
But nobody listens because my cock is so big
And the end of it glistens; so I'm famous for it
Freaky is what everyone's name is for it
Sure, it's larger than yours
Personally, I'm an atheist in the voting booth and a theist in the movie theatre. I separate the morality of religion with the spirituality and solace of it. There is something boring about atheism.

:( You unstickied Name That Song...the music thread with more posts than any other.

I know ^ this song by the way. It's a Canadian Indie-Hop guy whose name completely escapes me.

It'll come to me eventually. Doubt I'll get the song name though.

EDIT: BUCK 65!!! That was it.

Got no idea what song it was though, sorry. Maybe knowing WHO WROTE THE SONG will jog a few memories.

Here is one...

I've got a secret I've been hiding under my skin
My heart is human, my blood is boiling, my brain I.B.M.
So if you see me acting strangely, don't be surprised
I'm just a man who needed someone, and somewhere to hide
To keep me alive-just keep me alive
Somewhere to hide to keep me alive

Hehehe.. That'd be Styx with a classic from my teenagerdom: "Mr. Roboto".

I've been diggin' on this one lately:

And this is the room
One afternoon I knew I could love you
And from above you how I sank into your soul
Into that secret place where no one dares to go

And your mom would drink until she was no longer speaking
And dad would dream of all the different ways to die
Each one a little more than he could dare to try

When I kissed you
You didn't mind
I thought I tasted of too many cigarettes
But you tasted like wine
And I'm not going to change my mind
Just because of what they said
The worm has laid eggs in their hearts
But not in my head


Probably an easy one, but I just love that last line... heard it on the radio as I was driving in to work this morning.

I know what it is, but I kinda sorta cheated, so I'm not gonna give away the answer. Here's a kinda sorta clue though: I bet Fried Gold could get it without looking online.

It's my thread, I can bump it if I want to.


She's got eyes and they're lodged in the back of her head
And she can see three-sixty degrees without turning around
She'll sometimes cry after watching the six o'clock news
And if the four-minute warning chimes, we'll hide here underneath the desk

And when the cold war's over
The springtime thaw will flower
And when the siren's singing
We'll sense a new beginning just as we reach the end

She's got spies! The Super Furries.

Awesome, somebody got it! Whatever inspired you to stumble across this thread at this exact moment? You don't just log in once a week and run a search for "magicmonkey" to see if anyone's name-dropped you recently, do ya? :wink:

And yes, the ball's in your court, sir!

You can hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
And you know that she's half crazy
But that's why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China
And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her
Then she gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover.

Suzanne by Leonard Cohen, MM.



I dreamed you were a cosmonaut
of the space between our chairs
And I was a cartographer
of the tangles in your hair
Elitism is positing that your taste is equivalent to quality, you hate "Hamlet" does it make it "bad"? If you think so, you're one elite motherfucker.

It's weird, but because of the way this was posted I heard the above lyric set to Suzanne's music.
