Friday Random Top Ten



Ya pushes "shuffle" and ya takes yer chances....

1. Tubas In The Moonlight Bonzo Dog Do Dah Band
2. Do You Remember Rock 'n' Roll Radio? ¡RAMONES!
3. Cut My Hair The Who
4. When It Hurts So Bad Lauryn Hill
5. Chance Meeting Roxy Music
6. Third Eye Black Eyed Peas
7. Lord, I Trust Thee Christ Church Cathedral Choir, Oxford
8. Back In The U.S.S.R. The Beatles
9. 1921 The Who
10. I Believe The Buzzcocks

Well, that was a great start! I loves me that tuba solo. Two appearances by the Who, and both tracks are from Rock Operas or Concept Albums, whatever ya wantsta call 'em. What ever happened to Lauryn Hill? That album was about the only thing one heard that year! Good noisy guitar solo by Our Boy Phil in Chance Meeting. But nothing, nothing, tops I Believe.

The lyrics:

In these times of contention it's not my intention to make things plain
I'm looking through mirrors to catch the reflection that can't be mine
I'm losing control now I'll just have to slow down a thought or two
I can't feel the future and I'm not even certain that there is a past

I believe in the worker's revolution
And I believe in the final solution
I believe in
I believe in
I believe in the shape of things to come
And I believe in I'm not the only one
Yes I believe in
I believe in

When I poison my system I take thoughts and twist them into shapes
I'm reaching my nadir and I haven't an idea of what to do
I'm painting by numbers but can't find the colours that fill you in
I'm not even knowing if I'm coming or going if to end or begin

I believe in the immaculate conception
And I believe in the resurrection
And I believe in
I believe in
I believe in the elixir of youth
And I believe in the absolute truth
Yes I believe in
I believe in

There is no love in this world anymore
There is no love in this world anymore

I've fallen from favour while trying to savour experience
I'm seeing things clearly but it has quite nearly blown my mind
It's the aim of existence to offer resistance to the flow of time
Everything is and that is why it is will be the line

I believe in perpetual motion
And I believe in perfect devotion
I believe in
I believe in
I believe in the things I've never had
I believe in my Mum and my Dad
And I believe in
I believe in

There is no love in this world anymore
There is no love in this world anymore

I'm skippin' the pages of a book that takes ages for the foreword to end
Triangular cover concealing another aspect from view
My relative motion is just an illusion from stopping too fast
The essence of being these feelings I'm feeling I just want them to last

I believe in original sin
And I believe what I believe in
Yes I believe in
I believe in
I believe in the web of fate
And I believe in I'm going to be late
So I'll be leavin'
What I believe in

There is no love in this world anymore
There is no love in this world anymore
There is no love in this world anymore
There is no love in this world anymore
There is no love in this world anymore
There is no love in this world anymore
There is no love in this world anymore
There is no love in this world anymore

O'm'gawd, I actually know some of the artists and tunes.

Who's Lauryn Hill? I saw a bunch of CDs with that name yesterday at the used CD store in Montpelier but had no idea who that might be. What's the music like?

Kitty record! :p

Lauryn Hill has been in the middle of a fight between record labels.

Buzzcocks, Beatles, Bonzo, Ramones and The Who... hard line-up to beat.

I love those lyrics, Padre!

But I am happy to say I'm living proof that it is a lie to say "There is no love in this world anymore."

johnieb said...

Amen, Doxy.

Thanks for printing out the lyrics, Padre; I need a guide to so much, and have some good ones; it's always good to have another.

Thanks, too, mattyboy

I See You!
