    Hello all my tough but squeezy Martial Talk friends :)

    I hated Amsterdam yesterday so it’s Rotterdam today and it’s nice here and so many different voices and colours and faces in the one small place, and that gives a great perspective. Only problem is my dutch is VERY poor and I can't speak it without sounding like I got cake stuck in my throat, ha! Well, I was sitting earlier with the window open listening to all the tunes coming out of some apartment and some other open window across the block - I tell ya they had taste whoever they were and I was quite liking what I heard - the sort of music you would only listen to on your own even though they were blastin' it right loud! And I got thinking how music can sometimes be our friend where there ARE no friends, it can keep us company through our misery, or cheer us and lift us up and out; it can gee us up for fighting or calm our zeal and show us our hearts or remind us of where we are in the world and a million other things...

    So.... I'd be appreciative if you can share a lyric or song that you spin up on your machine or in your car or on your pod when you're either feeling a certain way or WANTING to feel a certain way. No matter what your mood, I would love to hear what you’re hearing and how you hear it. A good chance I'll have it here on my little ipod 40gb just shy of full. I promise I will reply to everyone who takes the time to give me a lyric and I will give you one of my own in the same vein if I can, in fact I'll match ya one for one.

    Thank you all SO very much :)

    OK so I guess down and underneath, I’m feeling a bit annoyed and maybe as if I don't really care so much about things at the minute and not in a Limp Bizkit "Break Stuff" way but more in a Trent Reznor "Sin" sort of way. If I wasn't angry at people before I listened to this well I am now, ha! So....
    You give me the reason, you give me control.
    I gave you my purity and my purity you stole.
    Did you think I wouldn't recognise this compromise. Am I just too stupid to realise.
    Stale incense, old sweat and lies! Lies! Lies!

    It comes down to this: your kiss; your fist; and your straining gets under my skin, within.
    Take in, the extent of my sin.

    If I'd have answered earlier today I was a little more melancholy and wistful and well, "Parisienne Walkways" is such a beautifully haunting and sorrowful song and....
    Looking back at the photographs.
    Those summer days spent outside corner cafes.
    Oh, I could write you paragraphs, about my old Parisienne days.

    If anyone's got either, I'd love you to spin 'em up for me!!
    But more than that, I'd love to hear one from you :)

    I've always loved music, whether playing it on the piano (don't ask me to play anything now; I'm out of practice - lol) or listening to it in my car or at home. The kind of music I listen to depends on my mood. I listen to popular (primarily 80's) music while I'm driving or relaxing at home, New Age when I really want to relax or fall asleep, and classical when I'm in a REALLY bad mood (classical music has a way of calming my frayed nerves).

    I find the song "Angel" by Sarah McLachlan comforting whenever I'm feeling down in the dumps - especially if those feelings were caused by relationship drama.

    Angel
    by Sarah McLachlan

    Spend all your time waiting
    For that second chance
    For a break that would make it okay
    There’s always one reason
    To feel not good enough
    And it’s hard at the end of the day
    I need some distraction
    Oh beautiful release
    Memory seeps from my veins
    Let me be empty
    And weightless and maybe
    I’ll find some peace tonight

    In the arms of an angel
    Fly away from here
    From this dark cold hotel room
    And the endlessness that you fear
    You are pulled from the wreckage
    Of your silent reverie
    You’re in the arms of the angel
    May you find some comfort there

    So tired of the straight line
    And everywhere you turn
    There’s vultures and thieves at your back
    And the storm keeps on twisting
    You keep on building the lie
    That you make up for all that you lack
    It don’t make no difference
    Escaping one last time
    It’s easier to believe in this sweet madness oh
    This glorious sadness that brings me to my knees

    In the arms of an angel
    Fly away from here
    From this dark cold hotel room
    And the endlessness that you fear
    You are pulled from the wreckage
    Of your silent reverie
    You’re in the arms of the angel
    May you find some comfort there
    You’re in the arms of the angel
    May you find some comfort here

    I have always found Meatloaf's Bat of of Hell Album fantastic.

    For crying out loud is probably my favorite. Reminds me of my younger days when love was tough and heart breaking when your six month relationship with the guy of your dreams :rolleyes: ended. ;)


    I was lost till you were found
    But I never know how far down
    I was falling
    Before I reached the bottom
    I was cold and you were fire
    And I never knew how the pyre
    Could be burning
    On the edge of the ice field
    And now the chilly California wind
    Is blowing down our bodies again
    And we're sinking deeper and deeper in the chilly California sand
    Oh I know you belong inside my aching heart
    And can't you see my faded Levis bursting apart
    And don't you hear me crying:
    "Oh Babe, don't go"
    And don't you hear me screaming
    "How was I to know?"
    I'm in the middle of nowhere
    Near the end of the line
    But there's a border to somewhere waiting
    And there's a tankful of time
    Oh give me just another moment to see the light of the day
    And take me to another land where I don't have to stay
    And I'm gonna need somebody to make me feel like you do
    And I will receive somebody with open arms, open eyes
    Open up the sky and let the planet that I love shine through
    For crying out loud
    You know I love you
    For crying out loud
    You know I love you
    For crying out loud
    You know I love you
    I was damned and you were saved
    And I never knew how enslaved
    I was kneeling
    In the chains of my master
    I could laugh but you could cry
    And I never knew just how high
    I was flying
    Ah, with you right above me
    And now the chilly California wind
    Is blowing down our bodies again
    And we're sinking deeper and deeper in the chilly California sand
    Oh I know you belong inside my aching heart
    And can't you see my faded Levis bursting apart
    And don't you hear me crying:
    "Oh Babe, don't go"
    And don't you hear me screaming
    "How was I to know?"
    I'm in the middle of nowhere
    Near the end of the line
    But there's a border to somewhere waiting
    And there's a tankful of time
    Oh give me just another moment to see the light of the day
    And take me to another land where I don't have to stay
    And I'm gonna need somebody to make me feel like you do
    And I will receive somebody with open arms, open eyes
    Open up the sky and let eh planet that I love shine through
    For crying out loud
    You know I love you
    For crying out loud
    You know I love you
    For crying out loud
    You know I love you
    For taking in the rain when I'm feeling so dry
    For giving me the answers when I'm asking you why
    My oh my
    For that I thank you
    For taking in the sun when I feel so cold
    For giving me a child when my body is old
    And don't you know
    That I need you
    For coming to my room when you know I'm alone
    For finding me a freeway and for driving me home
    And you got to know
    For that I serve you
    For pulling me away when I'm starting to fall
    For revving me up when I'm starting to stall
    And you got to know
    For that I want you
    For taking and for giving and for playing the game
    For praying for my future in the days that remain
    Oh Lord
    For that I hold you
    Ah, but most of all
    For crying out loud
    For that I love you
    Ah, but most of all
    For crying out loud
    For that I love you
    Ah, but most of all
    For crying out loud
    For that I love you
    When you're crying out loud
    You know I love you

    Hey Lisa :)

    Wow, that's amazing and you got it all in there too. Thanks for this. It's amazing how we forget stuff so the reminder of BooH is well overdue for me! Yep, that there's the sort of song to listen to reflectively. Quite a mournful lyric dontcha think? Best line there for me was always "Open up the sky and let the planet that I love shine through" I think that's beautiful. A classic from the big man! :) But ya know when it comes to tough love and splitting up I always took the hard line, you know - stuff ya, we'll see. And I got one for ya from a little band we got over in the UK. The song's about the singer's two-timing g/f but I love the "who do you think you are? Go on, get lost now," sentiment:

    I could not eat for days,
    I cried so much my face has never been the same...
    And now you're back here with your lies.
    I hope you realise...

    You think I'm gonna take you back? You'd better do better than that.
    I'll tell ya how its gonna be, don't you never ever come near me.
    Let me tell you how I've been: I've been hiding from my friends, hiding from the world, hiding from myself.
    You think you'll come round here, start singing in my ear, girl you damaged me, I don't forgive so easily.
    You better do better than that!

    I love it. Thanks Lisa for giving me a little thought :) :)

    when I'm working out I listen to a lot of rock: Iron Maiden, Metallica, Guns 'n' Roses, Drowning Pool, etc.

    One song that I totally love I just heard for the first time a couple of months ago, it's called March of Cambreadth by Heather Alexander. It sounds like it belongs on the Braveheart soundtrack...makes me want to go swing a battle-axe. :D


    March of Cambreadth (go to the link and scroll down to hear the song)

    Axes flash, broadsword swing,
    Shining armour's piercing ring
    Horses run with polished shield,
    Fight Those Bastards till They Yield
    Midnight mare and blood red roan,
    Fight to Keep this Land Your Own
    Sound the horn and call the cry,
    How Many of Them Can We Make Die!

    Follow orders as you're told,
    Make Their Yellow Blood Run Cold
    Fight until you die or drop,
    A Force Like Ours is Hard to Stop
    Close your mind to stress and pain,
    Fight till You're No Longer Sane
    Let not one damn cur pass by,
    How Many of Them Can We Make Die!

    Guard your women and children well,
    Send These Bastards Back to Hell
    We'll teach them the ways of war,
    They Won't Come Here Any More
    Use your shield and use your head,
    Fight till Every One is Dead
    Raise the flag up to the sky,
    How Many of Them Can We Make Die!

    Dawn has broke, the time has come,
    Move Your Feet to a Marching Drum
    We'll win the war and pay the toll,
    We'll Fight as One in Heart and Soul
    Midnight mare and blood red roan,
    Fight to Keep this Land Your Own
    Sound the horn and call the cry,
    How Many of Them Can We Make Die!

    Hey my good friend SL! :)

    Wow, you must have got it bad to be listening to this track. I know totally what you mean, this is so poignant and profound. And SAD too - and what would Miles and Sarah think of you getting all ruminative!! So I'm gonna give you something from the lovely KT Tunstall. Called "Under the Weather" I just love this it's a little sad but there's just the merest hint of sad-but-yet-NOT :)

    Under this national rain cloud
    I'm getting soaked to the skin
    Trying to find my umbrella
    But I don't know where to begin

    And it's simply irrational weather
    Can't even hear myself think
    Constantly bailing out water
    But still feel like I'm gonna sink

    Coz I'm under the weather
    Just like the world
    So sorry for being so bold
    When I turn out the light
    You're out of sight
    Although I know that I'm not alone
    Feels like home
    Feels like home

    I can see his face. I can hear his voice.

    I can feel his touch. I remember his walk.

    I lied down next to him so many times.

    Adieu, et Bon Débarras!!! :uhyeah:



    High Road Easy (Sass Jordan)

    Got a pocket full of power
    Got a handle on control
    Take a better man than you babe
    To rectify the damage to my soul

    Cos you took me down so easy
    Got the devil in your veins
    I may remember what was good
    But I won't forget the pain
    No I won't forget the pain

    Take the High Road Easy
    When your steel begins to rust
    Take the High Road Easy
    And your bones will turn to dust

    Well this morning it was sunshine
    But my head was in the clouds
    Cause the minute that I hit the streets
    Saw your face in every crowd
    With the humble scraps you feed me

    Got addicted to the game
    And even though the face will fade
    I won't forget the name
    No I won't forget the name

    Take the High Road Easy
    When your face begins to crack
    Take the High Road Easy
    Cause you won't be comin' back

    Time will tell if your destined to fall
    Gotta throw that **** away
    You don't want more, no you just want it all
    Well it might be better baby
    You know the devil's got to get paid

    http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendID=39220758



    Ahhh...So cathartic.

    [/dark_streak]

    ahem. what was I saying again? I forget.

    Hey KT :)

    Wow, thanks for that. This stuff really kicks a$$ but be careful now with that axe, you'll have somebody's eye out! :D Seriously, yeah I know what you mean and thanks for the link - I'm a collector see? Training needs something to get the blood coursing you're absolutely right. Well, an oldie (sort of) but goodie, I pop on a sprinkle of the sweeties who call themselves Rammstein. Nothing like that thumpin Du Hast to get the fight mentality - of course I'm a lover not a fighter don'tcha know, ha! :D But just for you badboys....

    Du
    Du hast
    Du hast mich
    Du hast mich gefragt
    Du hast mich gefragt und ich habe nichts gesagt

    Arguments over the translation I know but the band's own non literal version on the sleeve I have is

    You
    You hate
    You hate me
    You hate me to say
    You hate me to say and I did not obey

    I dunno what the h3ll that means but hey, it's damned hard when ya spit it venomously in german, LOL. Rock on!

    Hey my lovely Carol :)

    Man that is one mean and DIRTY song! Woohoo, I love it and I've never heard that before so thank you and for the link too. This is so great to hear these songs and get the FEEL them and that's what it is all about. That's fantastic! Ok, ok, well you'll prolly not know this but it's a stonking track by two lovely boys David McAlmont and Bernard Butler from a few years back. If you can dig it out on Torrentspy or wherever you go (or a shop ha!), make a point for me, yeah?? Quite simply, it's called "Yes" and I love it SO much....

    So you wanna know me now, how I've been?
    You can't help someone recover after what you did.
    So tell me am I looking better?
    Have you forgot, whatever it was that you couldn't stand, about me about me about me?


    Because...
    Yes I do feel better! Yes I do, I feel alright!
    I feel well enough to tell you what you can do with what you got,
    To offer

    So there now, that'll learn him. Tell him to get lost anyway Carol - best way! :D

    I'm one of those who like Art Rock, bands like Supertramp, Yes, Rush, Genesis and so forth.
    Supertramp is one of my absolute favorites. To me there's an intelligence and insight to many of their lyrics; like from these songs from Breakfast in America

    Goodbye Stranger
    Now I believe in what you say
    Is the undisputed truth
    But I have to have things my own way
    To keep me in my youth...

    ...And I will go on shining
    Shining like brand new
    If I never look behind me
    My troubles will be few...

    You can laugh at my behavior
    That'll never bother me
    Say the devil is my savior
    But I don't pay no heed...

    Take The Long Way Home

    Does it feel that your life's become a catastophe
    Oh, it has to be, for you to grow boy
    And when you look through the years and see what you could've been
    Oh what you might've been
    If you had more time....

    Lord Is It Mine

    I know that there's a reason why I need to be alone
    To show me there's a silent place that I can call my own
    Is it mine?
    Oh Lord, is it mine?
    You know I get so weary from the battles in this life
    And there's many times it seems that you're the only hope in sight
    Is it mine?
    Oh Lord, is it mine?
    When everything's dark, and nothing seems right
    There's nothing to win, and there's no need to fight
    I never cease to wonder at the cruelty of this land
    But it seems that a time of sadness is the time to understand
    Is it mine?
    Oh Lord, is it mine?
    When everything's dark, and nothing seems right
    You don't have to win it, and there's no need to fight
    (instrumental)
    If only I could find a way
    To feel your sweetness through the day
    The love that shines around me could be mine
    So give us an answer won't you?
    We know what we have to do
    There must be a thousand voices trying, to get through

    Hey Michael my man :)

    This is just superb. Another one I don't know but the lyric is strong for sure! Though I wonder does that go out the window when you're driving your fast car oh btw, what sorta car you driving there anyway?? I'm interested, I am. How fast we talking? TVR fast or one of those damn old-school Corvette Stingrays!! And you're from New Hampshire too which I am very reliably informed is THE most beautiful place to be driving that fast car. But ya know, when I read that and thought about the sentiment rather than the fast car, the first thing that came to mind for me was ....

    It's not like you didn't know that
    I said I love you and I swear I still do
    It must have been so bad
    Cause living with me must have damn near killed you
    And this is how you remind me
    Of what i really am

    I think Nickelback do this sort of powerful self-effacing melancholy thing so well. Thanks for this - oh and please let me know what motor you're listening to it in!!

    Hey Ralph :)

    Excellent, I'm feelin ya here, I really am. Yeah and whatever happened to lyrics with a bit of esoterica and mysticism in them? These great art-rock prog-rock men are great for lifting the spirit out of the mundane I think and thank you for them!

    When it comes to this era, I'm thinking Rick Wakeman and twenty five minute kbd solos, ha! And I'm thinking Asia too but I'll have to leave you forgetting clever lyrics and just get yer foot tapping to a venerable good honest rock classic of that era. I'm not sure the connection but hey, I just love this and maybe you'll go spin it up for me wherever you are....

    And now I'm feelin' better
    Cause I found out for sure
    She took me to her doctor
    And he told me of a cure
    He said that any love is good love
    So I took what I could get
    Yes I took what I could get
    And then she looked at me with them big brown eyes


    And said, You ain't seen nuthin' yet
    B-B-B-Baby, you just ain't seen nuthin' yet
    Here's something, here's something that you're never gonna forget, baby
    B-B-B-Baby, you know, you know, you know, you just ain't seen nuthin' yet
    You need an education, got to go to school

    Oh yeah, can't get enough of that good stuff.

    In the old days, it was a Monza Red Mitsubishi 3000 GT. A CD player in a car in 1992 was not totally exclusive, but pretty rare. Of course, by that time, the song was already 14 years old...

    P.S. The artist states, and I agree, that the way to listen to this music is not on an MP3 player. It really does affect the music (even if you use some of those fancy Bose headphones).

    Alan Parsons...actually a lot will do ("Silence and I", "Old And Wise", "Limelight"", "Ammonia Avenue") but the one that hits me the most is "Oh Life (There Must Be More)"
    --------------------
    Waves roll out
    Out to sea
    Tasting the salt-water
    Tears upon her cheek
    Morning breaks
    She's not there
    Who could ever find her?
    Who would even care?

    No one heard
    No one came
    No angel of mercy
    Appears to know her name
    Where is hope
    When words fail
    All the colours running
    Inside when life turns pale

    In the dock the boats are harboured
    Where the water's cold and still
    Oh life, she cries, I've lost the will
    From the bridge she sees a lifetime
    Being washed upon the shore
    Oh life, she cries
    There must be more..
    .
    Tides roll in
    Waters rise
    Any chance of reason
    Only clouds her eyes
    Arms of grace
    She won't feel
    All the wounds inside her
    That time can never heal

    The city lights shine seaward
    Swirling in a trance
    Her eyes upon the water
    Alone in her last dance

    From the docks the boats are leaving
    As she cries into the dawn
    "Oh life, I'm barely holding on"

    And she sees her future falling
    Til it finds the ocean floor
    Oh life, she cries
    There must be more
    There must be more

    And with the early light
    She'll sail into the clear
    The winds are all behind her
    The hour's almost here

    From the bridge she hears the voices
    Turn into a roar
    Oh life she cries
    There must be more

    On the dock her soul is sinking
    But her spirit longs to soar
    Oh life, she cries
    There must be more
    There must be more
    There must be more
    Oh life I'm barely holding on
    There must be more
    There must be more
    Oh life there must be something more

    Jenna, I hope you don’t mind me saying but you seem such a completely endearing person [sincerely]. Your verve has on more than one occasion made me smile and I get the impression of you as a very genuine person. Well just for you, here's a ditty from the Pistols that says hey people drop all the nonsense and pretense, I don't care for it, I'm me and I'm the genuine article, no BS and no padding - a top track Pretty Vacant. I'd put it on when I think people are getting up themselves.

    Don't ask us to attend 'cos we're not all there
    I don't pretend 'cos I don't care
    I don't belive illusions 'cos too much is for real
    So stop your cheap comment 'cos we know what we feel
    Oh we're so pretty, oh so pretty... We're vacant
    Oh we're so pretty, oh so pretty... We're vacant
    Ah but now... And we don't care!

    Respects!

    I find a couple of Staind songs coming to mind. I'll skip to my favorite parts:

    It's Been Awhile
    And it's been awhile
    Since I can say that I wasn't addicted
    And it's been awhile
    Since I can say I love myself as well
    And it's been awhile
    Since I've gone and f----d things up just like I always do
    And it's been awhile
    But all that s--t seems to disappear when I'm with you

    And everything I can't remember
    As f----d up as it all may seem
    The consequences that I've rendered
    I've gone and f----d things up again

    Why must I feel this way?
    Just make this go away
    Just one more peaceful day!

    And it's been awhile
    Since I could look at myself straight
    And it's been awhile
    Since I said I'm sorry
    And it's been awhile
    Since I've seen the way the candles light your face
    And it's been awhile
    But I can still remember just the way you taste

    and...

    Outside
    All the times
    That I felt like this won't end
    It's for you
    And I taste
    What I could never have
    It was from you
    All the times
    That I've cried
    My intentions
    Full of pride
    But I waste
    More time than anyone

    But I'm on the outside
    And I'm looking in
    I can see through you
    See your true colors
    'Cause inside you're ugly
    You're ugly like me
    I can see through you
    See to the real you

    All the times
    That I've cried
    All this wasted
    It's all inside
    And I feel
    All this pain
    Stuffed it down
    It's back again
    And I lie
    Here in bed
    All alone
    I can't mend
    But I feel
    Tomorrow will be OK

    ------------------------

    Like A Rolling Stone ~ Bob Dylan

    Once upon a time you dressed so fine
    You threw the bums a dime, in your prime, didn't you?
    People'd call, say, "Beware doll, you're bound to fall"
    You thought they were all kiddin' you
    You used to, laugh about
    Everybody that was, hanging out
    Now you don't talk so loud
    Now you don't seem so proud
    About having to be scrounging, for your next meal.

    (Chorus)
    How does it feel?
    How does it feel?
    To be without a home
    Like a complete unknown
    Like a rolling stone?

    You've gone to the finest school all right, Miss Lonely
    But you know you only used to get, juiced in it
    Nobody has ever taught you how to live out on the street
    And now you're gonna have to get, used to it
    You said you'd never, compromise
    With the mystery tramp, but now you realize
    He's not selling any, alibis
    As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
    And say, do you want to, make a deal?

    (repeat chorus)

    You never turned around to see the frowns on the jugglers and the clowns
    When they all did, tricks for you
    You never understood that it ain't no good
    You shouldn't let other people get your, kicks for you
    You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat
    Who carried on his shoulder, a Siamese cat
    Ain't it hard when you discover that
    He really wasn't where it's at
    After he took from you, everything, he could steal

    (repeat chorus)

    Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people
    They're all drinking, thinking, that they, got it made
    Exchanging all precious gifts
    But you'd better take your diamond ring, you'd better pawn it babe
    You used to be so amused
    At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
    Go to him now he calls you, you can't refuse
    When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose
    You're invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal

    Awww (repeat chorus)123
