"Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends, we're so glad you could attend come inside, come inside" karn evil 9 and in a similar way "sitting on a park bench, eyeing little girls with bad intent" aqualung. Sometimes it's purely the line and others delivery can increase the impact.


Two of our favourite songs at Kinsey Towers :-)

Sitting here in the television, looking at the tube sitting next to me.
He hasn't been very well lately, he told me so, he's been crying a little bit...

Short Stories, Jon and Vangelis.

"Listen as the wind blows
From across the great divide
Voices trapped in yearning
Memories trapped in time

The night is my companion
And solitude my guide
Would I spend forever here
And not be satisfied"

 Here I am in your room, going through your stuff,
Said you’d be gone five minutes, that’s long enough...

...is a good attention-catcher from the Maestro himself. Similarly,

Me name is Sam Jones and it’s bones, me occupation,
Chuck yer old hocks out for my consideration.

This thread is great, it gives a reminder of some amazing tracks.

Here's a few songs I love.

"Sundown dazzling day
Gold through my eyes
But my eyes turned within
Only see
Starless and bible black"

"Sweet Dreams are made of this,
Who am I to disagree?"

"So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from hell
Blue skies from pain?"

"I'm a little pimp with my hair gassed back
Pair of khaki pants with my shoes shined black"

"Holly came from Miami F.L.A.
Hitch-hiked her way across the U.S.A.
Plucked her eyebrows on the way
Shaved her legs and then he was a she"

"Pushing through the market square,
So many mothers sighing
News had just come over,
We had five years left to cry in"

"Good morning little schoolgirl
Can I go home, home with you?"

"Money, get away
Get a good job with good pay and you're okay
Money, it's a gas
Grab that cash with both hands and make a stash"

"Still don't know what I was waitin' for
And my time was runnin' wild
A million dead end streets and
Every time I thought I'd got it made
It seemed the taste was not so sweet"

Lots of Paul Simon: “Hello darkness, my old friend”, “Let us be lovers, we’ll marry our fortunes together”. Joni: “The wind is in from Africa, last night I couldn’t sleep”. (Probably too close for comfort tonight!)

My two favourites: “The screen door slams, Mary’s dress waves. Like a vision she dances across the room as the radio plays etc.” And “On a morning from a Bogart movie, in a country where they turn back time, you go walking through the crowd like Peter Lorre contemplating a crime.”

Mind you that last one brings to mind “You must remember this - a kiss is just a kiss.”

So here we are, with freedom...
Within our sweaty, greedy, grasps
So remember this, boys and girls
When your freedom comes along...
Don’t pish in the water supply
