    Eh, Gamma Ray play too much by the numbers for my taste.

    Have you listened to Ayreon's The Universal Migrator pt2? It's SF and somewhere on the prog-power axis.

    Into the black hole

    I have not listened to it yet, though I promise I will when I stop running around like a chicken with its head cut off getting ready for a move I didn't know was coming.

    And they may play by the numbers, but I love them anyway. I have absolutely no idea why, but I love them! <3

    Song #24: "Thieves" - Ministry

    THIEVES! THIEVES AND LIARS!

    Lyrics:
    Thieves, thieves and liars, murderers
    Hypocrites and bastards
    in laughter (get up!)

    (get up! get on your feet!)
    Hey thanks for nothing!
    Morals in the dust
    Two-faced bastards and sycophants
    No trust

    (We are fighting for the liberation of minds, not for the liberation of this pig, and racist society)
    Thieves! liar!
    Inside, outside, which side, you dont know
    My side, your side, their side, we dont know
    Which side are they? which side are they?
    Which side of their mouth do you suppose that it came?
    Which side are they? which side are they?
    Which side of the grass is greener?
    Inside, outside, which side, you dont know
    My side, your side, their side, we dont know

    Youre like a great big fucking gun,
    Just waiting to get squeezed!

    (We're gonna rip this motherfucker off, we're gonna tear this motherfucker down)
    (get up!)

    (Get up, get on your feet!)
    Breathe, forfeit erection!
    Toxical injection
    Geriatric fuck-fest
    We still believe in lies
    (I hope they realize that this is their last goddamned chance)
    (Kill him!)

    Thieves! liar!
    Inside, outside, which side, you dont know
    My side, your side, their side, we dont know
    Who started it? who started it?
    Which side are they? which side are they?
    Which side of their mouth do you suppose that it came?
    Which side are they? which side are they?
    Which side of the grass is greener?
    Inside, outside, which side, you dont know
    My side, your side, their side, no one knows

    Youre like a great big hit of acid,
    Waiting to be taken!

    (Power to the people)
    (Police Officer!)
    (you will not kill!)
    (I want peace)
    (do you want peace?)
    (I can't hear you!)
    (I still can't hear you!)


    Everyone loves Ministry, right? RIGHT!? If you don't, I'll rip your fucking face off. I swear it! RARARRARRRRRRRRRARARRRRRRRARR... meow.

    Yep. In two weeks I'm moving to NY.

    Song #25: "Yakedy Sax" written by Boots Randolph and James Q. "Spider" Rich

    Good quality sound

    I've had to play this song before, though I didn't know it was part of the Benny Hill show at the time. It was pretty hot and sticky. Supposedly adding this to anything makes for instant comedy, but I fail to see it. I think it's a good song in its own right.

    That song has been irredeemably ruined for me by every tv show and it's mom, Pavlov's dog style.

    To honor your upcoming move,

    Bob Crosby - Way back home


    The roads are the dustiest, the winds are the gustiest
    The gates are the rustiest, the pies are the crustiest
    The songs the lustiest, the friends the trustiest
    Way back home
    (Back home)

    The trees are the sappiest, the days are the nappiest
    The dogs are the yappiest, the kids are the scrappiest
    The jokes the snappiest, the folks the happiest
    Way back home

    Don't know why I left the homestead
    I really must confess
    I'm a weary exile
    Singing my song of loneliness

    The grass is the springiest, the bees are the stingiest
    The birds are the wingiest, the bells are the ringiest
    (The hearts) the hearts the singiest
    (The arms) the arms the clingiest
    Way back home

    (What about the sun?) The sun's the blaziest
    (And the fields?) The fields the daisiest
    (And the cows?) The cows the graziest
    (And the help?) The help's the laziest
    The boys (are the wittiest)
    The girls (are the prettiest)
    Way back home

    (The pigs are the snootiest, the owls are the hootiest)
    The plants the fruitiest, the stars the shootiest
    (The grins the funniest), the smiles the sunniest
    Way back home

    Don't know why I left the homestead
    I really must confess
    I'm a weary exile
    Singing my song of loneliness

    The food is the spreadiest, the wine is the headiest
    The pals are the readiest, the gals are the steadiest
    The love the liveliest, the life the loveliest
    Way back, way back, way back, home
    (No place like home)
    Sweet home


    The lyrics are silly, but it's a bittersweet ditty that's kind of an earworm. Besides, what kind of man would leave the hootiest owls to go to the big city? DOES NOT COMPUTE.

    And now for something completely different. That's an old rembetiko song (there's a 1935 record here).

    Pente Magkes ston Peraia

    Five guys in Piraeus
    were passing outside the smoking house
    One of the gang said
    let's go smoke a nargile (hookah)

    They went in to smoke
    told the owner
    Get us one good nargile
    with "Persian tobacco"

    You are asking for twopence
    we are paying three
    If our head fills up
    we will come again

    They smoked but it was no good
    they called the owner
    -I didn't get high at all
    it was all tobacco

    Man, you thought you are dealing
    with amateurs
    we are neither teenagers
    nor addicts

    Let's go to the hill
    I have a hookah hidden
    let's go smoke it there guys
    let's skip the smoking house

    Man, you thought you are dealing
    with amateurs
    we are neither teenagers
    nor addicts

    If they close the smoking houses
    in Piraeus
    I'll be taking
    my rag to the cave

    Back in '35 smoking of both kinds was pretty widespread. Piraeus was a place where refugees from Turkey settled in, ergo the proliferation of smoking houses there.

    This is, like, the consumerist of the interwar period. And a good song to boot.

    Music that sounds like it should live in an old school musical tend to irk me until I learn all of the lyrics and sing along. Then I get to be as obnoxious as the song.

    Queens of the Stone Age - The Lost Art of Keeping a Secret

    I've got a secret, I cannot say
    Blame all the movement to give it away
    You've got somethin, I understand
    Holding it tightly, caught on command
    Leap of faith, do you doubt?
    Cut you in, I just cut you out

    [chorus:]
    Whatever you do
    Don't tell anyone
    Whatever you do
    Don't tell anyone

    Look for reflections, in your face
    Canine devotion, time can't erase
    Out on the corner, locked in your room
    I never believe them and I never assume
    Still can't believe there is a lie
    Promise is promise, an eye for an eye
    We've got something to reveal
    No one can know how we feel

    I think you already know
    How far I'd go not to say
    You know the art isn't gone
    And I'm taking my song to the grave

    Of all the people "recycling" old music styles, they do it best. I'd probably choose a song off Lullabies... but I gotta run.

    I like it better when Gen was doing this.

    I haven't contributed anything to this thread, I think its about time I do. (even if everybody has already seen it)

    The Brevard County doctor who was arrested for groping a woman while dressed as Captain America with a burrito in his pants will not go to jail.

    This song is playing right now as the background to some trashy Oprah-wannabe show. Huh.

    Savatage - Believe (Acoustic version)

    So after all these one night stands
    You've ended up with heart in hand
    A child alone
    On your own
    Retreating
    Regretful for the things you're not
    And all dreams you haven't got
    Without a home
    A heart of stone
    Lies bleeding

    And for all the roads you followed
    And for all you did not find
    And for all the things you had to leave behind

    I am the way
    I am the light
    I am the dark inside the night
    I hear your hopes
    I feel your dreams
    And in the dark
    I hear your screams
    Don't turn away
    Just take my hand
    And when you make your final stand
    I'll be right there
    I'll never leave
    All I ask of you
    Believe

    Your childhood eyes were so intense
    While bartering your innocence
    For bits of string
    Grown-up wings
    You needed

    But when you had to add them up
    You found that they were not enough
    To get you in
    Pay for sins repeated

    And for all the years you borrowed
    And for all the tears you cried
    And for all the fears you had to keep inside

    I am the way etc.

    I never wanted to know
    Never wanted to see
    I wasted my time
    Till time wasted me
    Never wanted to go
    Always wanted to stay
    'Cause the person I am
    Are the parts that I play
    So I plot and I plan
    Hope and I scheme
    To the lure of a night
    Filled with unfinished dreams
    And I'm holding on tight
    To a world gone astray
    As they charge me for years
    I can't pay

    I am the way etc.


    Streets is my favorite album of the bunch and it's so weird that their label has lost the original outtakes that had twice the songs in them.

    Considering the situation of this thread:

    Fear Factory - Obsolete

    Nothing is the way it seems
    Discerning man from machines now

    Dominate as to erase
    Wiping man off Earth's face now

    Defaced by all inept justice
    Shamed by the mental abuses
    Branded "inferior weakness"
    Ordered to cease and to desist!

    Man is obsolete!
    Our world, obsolete!
    Man is obsolete!
    Erased, extinct!
    Obsolete!

    Fueling engines through deceit
    To eradicate humanity

    Defaced by all inept justice
    Shamed by the mental abuses
    Branded "inferior weakness"
    Ordered to cease and desist!

    Man is obsolete!
    Our world, obsolete!
    Man is obsolete!
    Erased, extinct!
    Obsolete!

    It's common knowledge that the process of moving sucks. At least Obsolete is a good way to go.
