    @ Yom: I didn't run and DJ a funk night in London for 1.5 years for being a music dunce you know dude! (In fact I am still 'at large') :lol:

    Now these lyrics have attitude. But who is the last verse about? :mischief:

    "Jumping Jack Flash" ~ (jagger/richards)

    I was born in a cross-fire hurricane
    And I howled at my ma in the driving rain,
    But it’s all right now, in fact, it’s a gas!
    But it’s all right. I’m jumpin’ jack flash,
    It’s a gas! gas! gas!


    I was raised by a toothless, bearded hag,
    I was schooled with a strap right across my back,
    <<<< Rough and ruggid man :rockon:.
    But it’s all right now, in fact, it’s a gas!
    But it’s all right, I’m jumpin’ jack flash,
    It’s a gas! gas! gas!

    I was drowned, I was washed up and left for dead.
    I fell down to my feet and I saw they bled.
    I frowned at the crumbs of a crust of bread.
    Yeah, yeah, yeah
    I was crowned with a spike right thru my head.
    But it’s all right now, in fact, it’s a gas!
    But it’s all right, I’m jumpin’ jack flash,
    It’s a gas! gas! gas!

    Jumping jack flash, it’s a gas
    Jumping jack flash, it’s a gas
    Jumping jack flash, it’s a gas
    Jumping jack flash, it’s a gas
    Jumping jack flash

    as far as ideologically possible
    For who knows something about that band it's too easy so somebody else can answer but here's another one from them and my favourite.

    Rolling Stones - (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction

    I can't get no satisfaction,
    I can't get no satisfaction.
    'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try.
    I can't get no, I can't get no.

    When I'm drivin' in my car
    and that man comes on the radio
    and he's tellin' me more and more
    about some useless information
    supposed to fire my imagination.
    I can't get no, oh no no no.
    Hey hey hey, that's what I say.

    I can't get no satisfaction,
    I can't get no satisfaction.
    'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try.
    I can't get no, I can't get no.

    When I'm watchin' my TV
    and that man comes on to tell me
    how white my shirts can be.
    Well he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke
    the same cigarrettes as me.
    I can't get no, oh no no no.
    Hey hey hey, that's what I say.

    I can't get no satisfaction,
    I can't get no girl with action.
    'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try.
    I can't get no, I can't get no.

    When I'm ridin' round the world
    and I'm doin' this and I'm signing that
    and I'm tryin' to make some girl
    who tells me baby better come back later next week
    'cause you see I'm on losing streak.
    I can't get no, oh no no no.
    Hey hey hey, that's what I say.

    I can't get no, I can't get no,
    I can't get no satisfaction,
    no satisfaction, no satisfaction, no satisfaction.

    Some more '60s/'70s

    Buffalo Springfield - For what it's worth

    There's something happening here
    What it is ain't exactly clear
    There's a man with a gun over there
    Telling me I got to beware
    I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
    Everybody look what's going down
    There's battle lines being drawn
    Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
    Young people speaking their minds
    Getting so much resistance from behind
    I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
    Everybody look what's going down
    What a field-day for the heat
    A thousand people in the street
    Singing songs and carrying signs
    Mostly say, hooray for our side
    It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
    Everybody look what's going down
    Paranoia strikes deep
    Into your life it will creep
    It starts when you're always afraid
    You step out of line, the man come and take you away
    We better stop, hey, what's that sound
    Everybody look what's going down
    Stop, hey, what's that sound
    Everybody look what's going down
    Stop, now, what's that sound
    Everybody look what's going down
    Stop, children, what's that sound
    Everybody look what's going down

    (Waters) 3:25




    "Alright, I'll take care of them part of the time, but there's somebody else that needs taking care of in Washington"
    "Who's that?"
    "Rose Pilchitt!"
    "Rose Pilchitt? Who's that?"
    [Kid screams in background. foreground: "Shut Up!"]
    "36-24-36 [laughter] does that answer your question?"
    [foreground: "Oi! I've got a little black book with me poems in!"]
    "Who's she?"
    "She was 'Miss Armoured Division' in 1961 ... "

    I've got a little black book with my poems in.
    Got a bag with a toothbrush and a comb in.
    When I'm a good dog, they sometimes throw me a bone in.

    I got elastic bands keepin my shoes on.
    Got those swollen hand blues.
    Got thirteen channels of **** on the T.V. to choose from.
    I've got electric light.
    And I've got second sight.
    And amazing powers of observation.
    And that is how I know
    When I try to get through
    On the telephone to you
    There'll be nobody home.

    I've got the obligatory Hendrix perm.
    And the inevitable pinhole burns
    All down the front of my favorite satin shirt.
    I've got nicotine stains on my fingers.
    I've got a silver spoon on a chain.
    I've got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains.

    I've got wild staring eyes.
    And I've got a strong urge to fly.
    But I got nowhere to fly to.
    Ooooh, Babe when I pick up the phone


    "Surprise, surprise, surprise..." (from Gomer Pyle show)

    There's still nobody home.

    I've got a pair of Gohills boots
    and I got fading roots.


    "Where the hell are you?"
    "Over 47 german planes were destroyed with the loss of only 15 of our own aircraft"
    "Where the hell are you Simon?"
    [Machine gun sound, followed by plane crashing]

    Don't Stay--Linkin Park:rockon:

    Sometimes I
    Need to Remember just to breathe
    Sometimes I
    Need you to stay away from me
    Sometimes I'm
    In disbelief I didn't know
    Somehow I
    Need you to go

    Don't stay
    Forget our Memories
    Forget our possibilities
    What you were changing me into
    [Just gime me myself back and]
    Don't stay
    Forget our memories
    Forget our possibilities
    Take all your faithlessness with you
    [Just give me myself back and]
    Don't stay

    Sometimes I
    Feel like I trusted you too well
    Sometimes I
    Just feel Like screaming at myself
    Sometimes I'm
    In disbief I didn't know
    Somehow I
    Need to be alone

    Don't stay
    Forget our Memories
    Forget our possibilities
    What you were changing me into
    [Just gime me myself back and]
    Don't stay
    Forget our memories
    Forget our possibilities
    Take all your faithlessness with you
    [Just give me myself back and]

    I don't want to be ignored
    I don't need one more day
    Of you wasting me away

    I don't need you anymore
    I don't want to be ignored
    I don't need one more day
    Of you wasting me away

    With no apologies

    Don't stay
    Forget our Memories
    Forget our possibilities
    What you were changing me into
    [Just gime me myself back and]
    Don't stay
    Forget our memories
    Forget our possibilities
    Take all your faithlessness with you
    [Just give me myself back and]
    Don't stay

    For what it's worth - now that's a song. I must have about 8 -10 versions of that and they are all 'arresting' (and yes one of those versions is by Cher, a yong funky one that is). And Satisfaction is of course brillaint.

    I am going to weigh in with a heavy weight reggae tune before I hit the sack. This one tune has blown more sound systems than all the others I have ever blown systems with (I tend not to do it anymore). Anyone heard it? You're gonna have to get some translators onto it to unlock those Kaballic secrets ;) :

    Faint--Linkin Park:rockon:

    I am
    Little bit of loneliness
    A little bit of disregard
    A handful of complaints
    But i can't help the fact
    That everyone can see these scars
    I am
    What I want you to want
    What I want you to feel
    But it's like
    No matter what I do
    I can't convince you
    To just believe this is real
    So I let go
    Watching you
    Turn your back like you always do
    Face away and pretend that I'm not
    But I'll be here
    'Cause you're all I got

    I can't feel
    The way I did before
    Don't turn your back on me
    I won't be ignored
    Time won't heal
    This damage anymore
    Don't turn your back on me
    I won't be ignored

    I am
    A little bit insecure
    Alittle unconfident
    'Cause you don't understand
    I do what I can
    But sometimes I don't make sense
    I am
    What you never want to say
    But I've never had a doubt
    It's Like no matter what I do
    I can't convice you
    For once just to hear me out
    So I let go
    Watching you
    Turn your back like you always do
    Face away and pretend that I'm not
    But I'll be here
    'Cause you're all I got

    I can't feel
    The way I did before
    Don't turn your back on me
    I won't be ignored
    Time won't heal
    This damage anymore
    Don't turn your back on me
    I won't be ignored

    No
    Hear me out now
    You're gonna listen to me
    Like it or not
    Right now

    I can't feel
    The way I did before
    Don't turn your back on me
    I won't be ignored

    I can't feel
    The way I did before
    Don't turn your back on me
    I won't be ignored
    Time won't heal
    This damage anymore
    Don't turn your back on me
    I won't be ignored

    Working Class Hero - John Lennon


    As soon as you're born they make you feel small
    By giving you no time instead of it all
    Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be
    They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
    They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
    Till you're so ****ing crazy you can't follow their rules
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be

    When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
    Then they expect you to pick a career
    When you can't really function you're so full of fear
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be

    Keep you doped with religion and sex and tv
    And you think you're so clever and classless and free
    But you're still ****ing peasants as far as i can see
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be

    There's room at the top they are telling you still
    But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
    If you want to be like the folks on the hill
    A working class hero is something to be
    A working class hero is something to be

    If you want to be a hero well just follow me
    If you want to be a hero well just follow me

    Flagpole Sitta - Harvey Danger

    I had visions I was in them
    I was looking into the mirror
    To see a little bit clearer
    The rottenness and evil in me
    Fingertips have memories
    Mine can't forget the curves of your body
    And when I feel a bit naughty
    I run it up the flagpole and see
    Who salutes but no one ever does

    I'm not sick but I'm not well
    And I'm so hot
    'Cause I'm in hell

    Been around the world and found that only stupid people are breeding
    The cretins cloning and feeding
    And I don't even own a TV
    Put me in the hospital for nerves
    And then they had to commit me
    You told them all I was crazy
    They cut off my legs
    Now I'm an amputee god damn you

    I'm not sick but I'm not well
    And I'm so hot
    Cause I'm in hell

    I'm not sick but I'm not well
    And it's a sin
    To live so well

    I want to publish 'zines
    And rage against machines
    I wanna peirce my tongue
    It doesn't hurt it feels fine
    The trivial sublime
    I'd like to turn off time
    And kill my mind
    And kill my mind

    Paranoia paranoia
    Everybody's coming to get me
    Just say you never met me
    I'm running under ground with the moles digging holes
    Hear the voices in my head
    I swear to god it sounds like they're snoring
    But if you're bored then you're boring
    The agony and the irony they're killing me

    I'm not sick but I'm not well
    And I'm so hot
    'Cause I'm in hell

    I'm not sick but I'm not well
    And it's a sin
    To live this well

    Dream Theater--Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence

    1. OVERTURE
    (instrumental)

    2. ABOUT TO CRASH
    She can't stop pacing, she never felt so alive
    Her thoughts are racing, set on overdrive
    It takes a village, this she knows is true
    They're expecting her and she's got work to do

    He helplessly stands by, it's meaningless to try
    As he rubs his red-rimmed eyes
    He says, "I've never seen her get this bad."
    Even though she seems so high, he knows that she can't fly
    & when she falls out of the sky he'll be standing by

    She was raised in a small midwestern town
    by a charming & eccentric loving father
    She was praised as the perfect teenage girl
    & everyone thought highly of her

    & she tried everyday with endless drive to make the grade
    Then one day she woke up to find the perfect girl had lost her mind
    Once barely taking a break, now she sleeps the days away
    She helplessly stands by, it's meaningless to try
    All she wants to do is cry, no one ever knew she was so sad

    'cause even though she gets so high & thinks that she can fly
    She will fall out of the sky, but in the face of misery
    She found hopefulness, feeling better--she had weathered this depression

    Much to her advantage she resumed her frantic pace
    Boundless power, midnight hour--she enjoyed the race

    3. WAR INSIDE MY HEAD
    Napalm showers showed the cowards we weren't there to mess around
    Through heat exhaustion & mind distortion,
    a military victory mounted on innocent ground

    Hearing voices from miles away saying things never said
    Seeing shadows in the light of day waging war inside my head

    Years & years of bloodshed & warfare, our mission was only to get in & kill
    A free vacation of palm trees & shrapnel,
    trading innocence for pure psychotic hell

    Hearing voices from miles away saying things never said
    Seeing shadows in the light of day waging war inside my head
    Feeling strangers staring my way, reading minds never read
    Tasting danger with each word I say, waging war inside my head.

    4. THE TEST THAT STUMPED THEM ALL
    Standing in the darkness, waiting for the light
    the smell of pure adrenaline burning in the night
    Random blinding flashes aiming at the stage
    Intro tape begins to roll igniting sonic rage

    Still they keep me between these hollow walls
    Hoping to find in me the answers to the test that stumped them all

    "The boy is just simply crazy, suffering from delusions.
    We honestly think that maybe he might need an institution.
    He lives in a world of fiction & really could use some help.
    We have just the place to fix him to save him from himself."

    Curled up in the darkness, searching for the light
    The smell of stale sweat & **** steaming thru the night
    Random urine testing; pills red, pink, & blue
    Counseling & therapy providing not a clue

    Still they keep me between these hollow walls
    Hoping to find in me the answers to the test that stumped them all

    "We can't seem to find the answers, he seemed such a clear-cut case
    we can't just let him leave here & put all this work to waste.
    Why don't we try shock treatment, it really might do some help
    We have just the tools to fix him, to save him from himself."

    5. GOODNIGHT KISS
    Goodnight kiss in your nightgown, lavender in your bed
    So innocent as you lie down, sweet dreams that run thru your head
    Are you lonely without Mommy's love?
    I want you to know I'd die for that moment
    You're just a poor girl afraid of this cruel world--taken away from it all.

    It's been 5 years to the day & my tainted blood's still the same
    I can't help acting this way & those bastard doctors are gonna pay
    I'm so lonely without baby's love--I want you to know
    that I'd die for one more moment
    I'm just a poor girl afraid of this cruel world--taken away from it all

    6. SOLITARY SHELL
    He seemed no different from the rest, just a healthy normal boy
    His mama always did her best & he was daddy's pride & joy
    He learned to walk & talk on time but never cared much to be held
    & steadily he would decline into his solitary shell
    As a boy he was considered somewhat odd
    kept to himself most of the time
    He would daydream in & out of his own world
    But in every other way he was fine.

    He's a Monday morning lunatic, disturbed from time to time
    Lost within himself in his solitary shell

    A temporary catatonic, madman on occasion
    When will he break out of his solitary shell?

    He struggled to get thru his day, he was hopelessly behind
    He poured himself onto the page, writing for hours at a time
    As a man he was a danger to himself, fearful & sad most of the time
    he was drifting in & out of sanity, but in every other way he was fine

    He's a Monday morning lunatic, disturbed from time to time
    Lost within himself in his solitary shell
    A momentary maniac with casual delusions
    When will he be let out of his solitary shell?

    7. ABOUT TO CRASH (REPRISE)
    I'm alive again, the darkness far behind me
    I'm invincible, despair will never find me
    I feel strong, I've got a new sense of elation
    Boundless energy, euphoria fixation

    Still it's hard to just get by,
    it seems so meaningless to try
    When all I want to do is cry
    Who would ever know I feel so sad?
    Even though I get so high, I know that I will never fly
    & when I fall out of the sky, who will be standing by?

    Will you be standing by?

    8. LOSING TIME/GRAND FINALE
    She dresses in black everyday
    she keeps her hair simple & plain
    she never wears makeup
    but no one would care if she did anyway

    She doesn't recall yesterday
    faces seem twisted & strange
    but she always wakes up
    only to find she's been miles away

    absence of awareness, losing time
    a lapse of perception, losing time

    wanting to escape, she had created a way to survive
    she learned to detach from herself,
    a behavior that kept her alive

    Hope in the face of our human distress
    helps us to understand the turbulence deep inside
    that takes hold of our lives.
    Shame & disgrace over mental unrest
    keeps us from saving those we love.
    The grace within our hearts & the sorrow in our souls
    Deception of fame, vengeance of war,
    lives torn apart, losing oneself, spiraling down
    Feeling the walls closing in, a journey to find
    the answers inside our illusive mind.

    Duadenum - Threebrain

    One two, one two
    I'm running in the street
    Thinking of you
    Take off your shirt
    And show me something
    Something delicious
    Something I can play with in my tongue
    Like your bung
    I was eatin' a burrito
    It was so ****ing yummy
    Now gotta push it out of my duadenum
    It felt runny

    Duadenum, duadenum, duadenum
    Duadenum, duadenum, duadenum
    Duadenum, duadenum, duadenum

    Sometimes I need to help it along with my finger

    Duadenum (a few more times)

    Ramses Bringer Of War - By NILE

    Wretched Fallen ones of Khatti
    Raise against the oppressing Sword
    Encircled Abandoned Alone
    I Smite the vile Hittite Foe

    My Father Amon what carest Thee
    For the Vile and Ignorant of God
    My Father Amon what carest Thee
    For these Effeminate ones

    At millions of whom I groweth not Pale
    Raging like Menthu like Baal in his Hour
    Lo the mighty Sekhmet is with Me
    I enter in among them even as a hawk striketh

    I slay I hew to pieces and cast to the ground
    The royal snake upon my brow
    Spits forth Fire in the face of mine enemies
    And Burneth their Limbs

    My Chariot Wheels trample the Fallen
    Cut to pieces before my Steeds
    And laying
    In their own Blood

    I Crush the Skulls of the Dying
    And Sever the Hands of the Slain
    I Ramses
    Builder of Temples

    Usurper of Monuments

    Slayer of Hittites

    Bringer of War

    Alexander The Great by Iron Maiden

    [(Harris) 8:35]

    "My son ask for thyself another
    Kingdom, for that which I leave
    is too small for thee"
    (King Philip of Macedonia - 339 B.C.)

    Near to the east
    In a part of ancient Greece
    In an ancient land called Macedonia
    Was born a son
    To Philip of Macedon
    The legend his name was Alexander

    At the age of nineteen
    He became the Macedon King
    And he swore to free all of Asia Minor
    By the Aegian Sea
    In 334 B.C.
    He utterly beat the armies of Persia

    [Chorus:]
    Alexander the Great
    His name struck fear into hearts of men
    Alexander the Great
    Became a legend 'mongst mortal men

    King Darius the third
    Defeated fled Persia
    The Scythians fell by the river Jaxartes
    Then Egypt fell to the Macedon King as well
    And he founded the city called Alexandria

    By the Tigris river
    He met King Darius again
    And crushed him again in the battle of Arbela
    Entering Babylon
    And Susa, treasures he found
    Took Persepolis the capital of Persia

    [Chorus:]
    Alexander the Great
    His name struck fear into hearts of men
    Alexander the Great
    Became a God amongst mortal men

    A Phrygian King had bound a chariot yoke
    And Alexander cut the 'Gordian knot'
    And legend said that who untied the knot
    He would become the master of Asia

    Hellenism he spread far and wide
    The Macedonian learned mind
    Their culture was a western way of life
    He paved the way for Christianity

    Marching on, marching on
    The battle weary marching side by side
    Alexander's army line by line
    They wouldn't follow him to India
    Tired of the combat, pain and the glory

    Alexander the Great
    His name struck fear into hearts of men
    Alexander the Great
    He died of fever in Babylon

    :clap: :clap: This is fun ... now the most famous of the below mentioned band ...

    Blue Oyster Cult - (Don't) Fear the Reaper

    All our times have come
    Here but now they're gone
    Seasons don't fear the reaper
    Nor do the wind the sun or the rain (we can be like they are)
    Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)
    Baby take my hand (don't fear the reaper)
    We'll be able to fly (don't fear the reaper)
    Baby I'm your man
    La-la-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la
    Valentine is done
    Here but now they're gone
    Romeo and Juliet
    Are together in eternity (Romeo and Juliet)
    40,000 men and women everyday (like Romeo and Juliet)
    40,000 men and women everyday (redefine happiness)
    Another 40,000 coming everyday (we can be like they are)
    Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)
    Baby take my hand (don't fear the reaper)
    We'll be able to fly (don't fear the reaper)
    Baby I'm your man
    La-la-la-la-la la-la-la-la-la
    Love of two is one
    Here but now they're gone
    Came the last night of sadness
    And it was clear she couldn't go on
    Then the door was open and the wind appeared
    The candles blew then disappeared
    The curtains flew then he appeared (saying don't be afraid)
    Come on baby (and she had no fear)
    And she ran to him (then they started to fly)
    They looked backward and said goodbye (she had become like they are)
    She had taken his hand (she had become like they are)
    Come on baby (don't fear the reaper)
