Life is A Rock (Part II)

Arnold, did you think you’d get rid of us THAT easily? :smiley:

For newbies:

Please read the history: If life is a rock and the radio rolls me…

As I was last up, will await another to inaugurate this incarnation…

Be-Bop I love you baby
Be-Bop I don’t mean maybe
Be-Bop I love you baby
I’m stickin’ with you

New loves may come your way
But my love’s here to stay
Listen while I say


By Jimmy Bowen and the Rhythm Orchids. “I’m Stickin’ With You” entered the charts in February, 1957.


“ue o muite arukou
namida ga kobore naiyouni
omoidasu harunohi
hitoribotchi no yoru”

  • Kyu Sakamoto

yeah, I know someone will be around to tell me the transliteration sucks…

Actually, your transliteration’s spot on, by the look of it. I’ll get back to you with the translation – a [understatement]rather irresponsible[/understatement] co-worker of mine has my Japanese dictionaries at the moment, but she will get them back to me.

I was looking for this thread! :slight_smile: Thanks for refusing to let it die! I’m afraid I don’t remember the artist who sang the one song I quoted in my last post in the old thread (That’s a strange way to tell me you love me/When you’re sorrow is all I can see). I think the song is called “Strange Way” and the artist has a light tenor voice, with a sort of David Gates and Bread feel to the melody and harmony.

On to yet more drek! A song The World’s Worst Roommate loved (her real name was Micki) from 1982:

Ooo Micki you so fine
You so fine you blow my mind
Hey Micki! Hey! Hey! Hey Micki

And, it’s from the musical Chess, but it was getting Top 40 airplay back in about 1985,
One Night In Bangkok and the world’s your oyster,
A little flesh a little history
You’ll find a god in every golden oyster
And if you’re lucky then the god’s a she.
I can feel the devil slidin’ up to me.

And last, a bit of Rod Stewart:
Some Guys Have All the Luck.
Some guys have all the pain
Some guys get all the breaks
Some guys do nothin’ but complain

Sorry to have been away so long – real (good) life got in the way. It’s good to be back, though.

Oh yes, there’s some Cyndi Lauper still in my system:

I come home in the middle of the night.
My father yells “What you gonna do with your life?”
Oh Daddy dear, you know you’re still number one,
And girls, they wanna have fu-un
O-oh Girls Just Wanna have fun.

*Some times you picture me,
I’m walkin’ too far ahead.
You’re callin’ to me;
I can’t hear what you’ve said.
Flashback to warm nights
Almost left behind. The second hand unwinds.

If you’re lost you can look and you will find me.
Time After Time
If you fall, I will catch you. I’ll be waitin’.
Time After Time*

Thread After Thread

Does the name “Strange Way” (Firefall) ring a bell?

and for identified dreck #635:

“Our dreams have magic
Because we’ll always stay
In love this way
Our day will come.
(Our day will come; our day will come.)…”

p.s. - thanks for “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” - was hoping somebody would, and I’m technically disquailfied (never willing sat throught it)

[sub]“Beat the drum slowly and play the pipes lowly, for I’m a young cowboy, and I know I’ve done wrong…”[/sub]

Oh, People? Dreck STILL does NOT post itself!

You want 700 posts, DO YOUR PART!

“You are everything
And everything is you
Oh, you are everything
And everything is you
'Cause you are everything
And everything is you…”

(come back to the studio when y’all have a REAL song, 'K?)

Freedom - keep tryin’
People stay alive and people keep dyin’ for
Freedom - so don’t lose it
Ya gotta understand ya just can’t abuse it
Freedom - get movin’
Never gonna stop till everybody’s groovin’ on
Love for - one another
Callin’ some friend and callin’ some brother

Hey tomorrow
You’re not so far away
Mother freedom
we’ll know you well someday

*“You and me, baby, we ain’t nothing but mammals
So let’s do it like they do it on the Discovery Channel…”

“Stop, collaborate and listen:
Ice is back with a brand new invention.
Something grabs ahold of me tightly,
Rocks me [something] daily, nightly,
When will it stop, yo, I don’t know.
Turn out the lights and I glow.”

“You may not dress with the best of taste,
And nature didn’t give you such a beautiful face, but baby,
You got what it takes.”*

Any time, happy heathen. Not only have I sat through it, my best friend and I once sang it at a karaoke bar in front of a bunch of archaeologists. Since you mentioned Firefall,

You Are the Woman that I’ve always dreamed of
I knew it from the start.
I saw your face
And that’s the last I’ve seen of my heart.

Also, I think we missed a bit of Dan Fogelberg:
*Lucky in love, well maybe so
There’s still a lot of things you’ll never kno-o-w
Like why each time the sky begins to snow you cry.
. . .
It’s Hard To Say where love went wrong
It’s so ha-a-rd to say"

Drekin’ out in MPSIMS
Shut down by a server’s whims
Came back, now we’re drekin again
If we can find the so-o-o-ongs.

"We post the songs that make the whole world gag,
We post the songs that should be in a body bag,
We post the songs that make the moderators cry,
We post the songs, we post the songs…

We are Dopers, and we post the SONGS!"


"We post the songs that make the whole world gag,

“I can picture ev’ry move that a man could make
Gettin’ lost in her lovin’ is your first mistake
Sundown, you better take care
If I find you bin creepin’ round my back stairs
Sometimes I think it’s a sin
When I feel like I’m winnin’ when I’m losin’ again…”

We’ll make 700 yet…

[sub]When I was a young man and had never been kissed, I got to thinking it over, how much I’d missed…[/sub]

How have we missed that great dreck producer Michael Bolton.

[whiney voice]
I could hardly believe it
When I heard the news today
I had to come and get it straight from you
They said you were leavin’
Someone’s swept your heart away
From the look upon your face, I see it’s true
So tell me all about it, tell me ‘bout the
plans you’re makin’
Then tell me one thing more before I go
Tell me how am I suppose to live without you
Now that I’ve been lovin’ you so long
How am I suppose to live without you
How am I suppose to carry on
When all that I’ve been livin’ for is gone
[/whiney voice]

or this one:
When a man loves a woman
Can’t keep his mind on nothin’ else
He’d trade the world
For a good thing he’s found
If she is bad, he can’t see it
She can do no wrong
Turn his back on his best friend
If he puts her down

[sub]psst: cjhoworth, Hey Mickey has been done[/sub]

I’m a travelin’ man
Made a lot of stops
All over the world
And in every corner I own the heart
of at least one lovely girl

I’m a travelin’ man
Made a lot of stops
All over the world
And in every corner I own the heart
of at least one lovely girl

“Shattered dreams
Cut through my mind
Tragically our love has died
Memories confine my head
Bitterly I face the end”

-Mariah Carey, And You Don’t Remember
[sub]I’ve been searchin’ for a heart of Dreck…[/sub]

Here is another artist we have missed:

Creed With Arms Wide Open

Well I just heard the news today
It seems my life is going to change
I closed my eyes, begin to pray
Then tears of joy stream down my face
With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I’ll show you everything
With arms wide open

See the tree, how big it’s grown but friend it hasn’t been too long it wasn’t big
I laughed at her and she got mad, the first day that she planted, it, was just a twig
Then the first snow came and she ran out to brush the snow away
So it wouldn’t die
Came runnin’ in all excited, slipped and almost hurt herself

AAAcckk, Urkkkk, <sound of projectile vomiting>
I had to endure this piece of sappy drivel while waiting in line at a Safeway a few weeks ago.

sorry, racer, Honey was one of the FIRST ones done…

pls dig deeper.

thank you

"I’ve told every little Star…
Just how sweet I think you are…
Why haven’t I told you…

I told ripples in a brook
Made my heart an open book
Why haven’t I told you…"
