Lush - Lit Up

Code: Select all
you feel like i do
like the whole world's forgotten you
and your life is so dull and predictable

your room seems like a cell
and you don't sleep very well
and your friends only talk to point and to mock
and to ridicule

one day things won't seem the same way, i know

morning in the mirror
things will suddenly seem much clearer
and i promise, it's alright

his words don't flatter me
and they're printed for all to see
i don't care, he's not there
it's all history

the future's yours to hold
and you're really not very old
and your life is so white, so clean and so bright
and holds mystery

morning in the mirror
things will suddenly seem much clearer
and i promise, it's alright

one day things won't seem the same way, i know

Scotch were an Italian duo known for starting their songs with gimmicks. "Disco Band" had some guy coughing, while "Delirio Mind" had... well, listen. Don't, however, try to make sense of the lyrics.

Steeleye Span: One Misty Moisty Morning

For some reason, the heteronormative cabal never complained about a woman singing a song about romancing a milkmaid.

I still dare hope I'm wrong, but seems something along these lines may be in order…

We call our ships to port

Shock Treatment and Duel Duet are good, too (I prefer them to BitK)...too bad he didn't do Little Black Dress or Anyhow, Anyhow, and his take on Look What I Did To My Id is disappointing.



Id is probably my least favorite by Marc With A C next to Thank God I'm A Man (too countryesque for me). Shock Treatment and Lullaby are my favorites. Then it's BitK and Breakin' Out. Though the original Oscar Drill and the Bits version is waaaay better.

I also would like to have seen a Marc with a C rendition of LBD.


I've never looked at this thread before, and seeing a back-and-forth about Shock Treatment music has made me extremely happy. It has also pieced together how much it makes sense that I've had some songs from both Shock Treatment and Phantom of the Paradise stuck in my head lately - I wasn't considering the Jessica Harper connection (durrr).

Here's my first contribution to the thread. I've gotten into collecting albums from the '20s and '30s lately. I had a bit of exposure to these eras before, but it was stumbling upon Cliff Carlisle that really got me into exploring more music from the time. I don't know if it's for everybody, but I hope someone likes it. Cliff Carlisle - Hobo Blues

Since December is imminent: "Det är inte snön som faller" is one of the best Midwinter Commercialism Festival songs in the Swedish language.

What!? Why have I not posted here about Meg & Dia yet!? I know I did in the old thread!

Well, here's the Something Real version of "Indiana, which has different lyrics and is better than the other version though that version is still pretty good.

Ditto to the Something Real version of "Masterpiece." I dunno, these versions of the songs are more... raw, I guess. I prefer them that way, but you might like these versions of "Indiana" and "Masterpiece" better.

Methinks the warning is fair, considering the title translates to "It's not snow that's falling".
Now I don't know if this qualifies to either one of the criteria, but if you can listen past her slightly disturbing nasal voice, Do You Remember Me by Arina Chloe is quite nice poprock I only found out a few days ago.
