What are your 3 favorite songs on the last CD you heard?
I just listened to Tom Petty's Highway Companion. Favorite songs are:

"Saving Grace" - the rowdiest song on the CD

"Flirting With Time" - rocks with his best, like "Won't Back Down."

"Big Weekend" - has a glorious Dylan meets The Byrds sound

"Night Driver" is the best ballad and would be a close 4th. All the songs are great except a couple near the end - "This Old Town" and "Ankle Deep." For that reason, I give the CD a still excellent A-, but I'm open to giving an A based on the very high quality found on the CD.

1. A mix CD.
"Shining Collection" Damn best song I've ever heard. Makes me want to dance.

"'Cause I can" By Pink. I love that song.

"Hips don't lie" One of Shakira's english best.

2. That Pink song is a hoot, isn't it?
It's has the kind of sassiness that I love from her.

3. It cracks me up everytime I hear it.
My mom and I got to see her in concert. She opened with it, complete with knee-high leather boots and riding whip. It was hot. ;) She rocked.

4. From VNV Nation's "Matter + Form"
1. Arena

Before me plays the endless film
Relentless splinters I recall
Each living thing breathes life
Only sentiment remains
To Liquid born, from patterns formed
The sand descends with blind intent
Where the river takes me will in time be revealed

I cannot turn my feelings down
Beyond my means to turn my thoughts around
Expressed in every word I will ever speak
Brighter than all the stars combined
More than the waters, Earth, and sky
All that I wish and all that I dream
No creed on Earth can replace or provide
In my darkest hour, the comfort I'd feel
Leading me to see I can be more than I expect of me
My beginning and my end
The first and last air that I breathe
More than the sum of everything that I will ever be

Above the waves with my hands raised
Dare the wind, lay claim to me
Knowing somehow none could take me
Wasthing the sun come up in vain
The only reason I can find why I remained
The need to leave the point I came to again and again

It didn't matter how hard I tried
It took so long to claim that I knew how
Or what it meant to let go of this
To ever say goodbye
Call it destiny, call it fate
Chose my direction: Running forward
Each life to learn anew, whatever may come




2. Homeward

The hallowed lands so far behind
As fleeting dreams still linger
Like distant voices through the rain
Like grains of sand cast from my hands

I never thought I'd go this far
Without a star to cross the seas
So far from shores I'd left behind
Still far from shores I've yet to reach

I try to find the strength I need
To calm the doubts in my belief
With the will, I know my heart won't break

And if I have strength, then I've belief
If I have love, my heart still beats
Here under stars
Far from home

The picture fades, the light recedes
The sound is lost in whispers
My recollections once clear and pure
Now distant lights that dim with time

I never thought I'd go this far
Without a star to cross the seas
So far from shores I'd left behind
Still far from shores I've yet to reach



3. Endless Skies

How many years since you found yourself
Staring at an endless sky?

Unaware of yourself
Who you are and where you're going
Only living
Only breathing
Losing all sense of time

The most fragile of things
Captivates and embraces you
Surrender and be witness
To this rarest of moments

You live within the sense of the order of things
What is truth
What is important
What defines you

No need to fear
No need to worry
About years that passed
About time you lost

Live seconds as a lifetime
Time it does not matter
You live within the sense
Of the stillness of time


:loveya:

21. Me too.
At first, I was all, yeah maybe a little TOO polished, but I'm loving it.

"Bricks" and "The Good Left Undone" rise to the top for me, as does "Injection" right now.

You've seen the video for "Ready To Fall" I trust...

9. Just listened to the "Tick, Tick...Boom!" OOBC album...
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 05:05 PM by deadparrot
1. 30/90
Stop the clock
Take time out
Time to regroup
Before you loose the bout
Face the thrill
Back it up
Time to refocus
Before they lap it up

Years are getting shorter
The lines on your face are getting longer
Feel like you're treading water
But the riptide's getting stronger
Don't panic, don't jump ship
Can't find it, like taxes
At least it happens
Only once in your life

They're singing, "Happy Birthday"
You just wanna lay down and cry
Not just another birthday, it's 30/90
Why can't you stay 29
Hell, you still feel like you're 22
Turn 30 in 1990
Bang! You're dead, what can you do?
What can you do?
What can you do?

Clear the runway
Make another pass
Try one more hook
Before you're out of gas

Friends are getting fatter
Hairs on you head are getting thinner
Feel like a clean up batter
On a team that ain't a winner

Don't freak out, don't strike out
Can't fight it, like City Hall

At least you're not alone
Your friends are there too
They're singing, "Happy Birthday"
You just wish you could run away
Who cares about a birthday?
But 30/90, hey

Can't you be optimistic?
You're no longer eons of you
Turn 30, 1990
Voom! You're passe
What can you do?
What can you do?
What can you do?

Peter Pan and Tinkerbell
Which way to Never Never Land?
Emerald City's gone to hell
Since the wizard blew off his command

On the streets you hear the voices
Lost children, crocodiles
But you're not into
Making choices, wicked witches,
Poppy fields, or men behind the curtains,
Tiger lilies, ruby slippers
Clock is ticking, that's for certain

They're singing, "Happy Birthday"
I just wish it all were a dream
It feels much more like dooms day
What 30/90 seems

I'm dying for a twister
I don't see a rainbow, do you?
Turn 30 into 90
Look into my hands now
What the ball has passed
I want the spoils, but not too fast

The world is falling
It's now or never land
Why can't I stay till
The forever end?
30/90
30/90
30/90
30/90
30/90
30/90
What can I do?
What can I do?

2. Come To Your Senses
You're on the air, I'm under ground
Signal's fading, can't be found
I finally open up
For you I would do anything
But you've turned off the volume
Just when I've begun to sing

Come to your senses
Defenses are not the way to go
And you know, or at least you knew
Everything's strange, you've changed
And I don't know what to do to get through
I don't know what to do

I have to laugh
You sure put on a show
Love is passe in this day and age
How can we expect it to grow?

You as the night
Me as the dream
All I've got tonight
Is static on a screen

Come to your senses
The fences inside are not for real
If we feel as we did, and I do

Can't you recall when this all began
It was only you and me
It was only me and you

But now the air is
Filled with confusion
We replace care with illusion

It's cool to be cold
Nothing lasts anymore
Love becomes disposable
This is the shape of things
We cannot ignore

Come to your senses
Suspense is fine if your just an
Empty image emanating out
Of a screen

Baby be real, you can feel again
You don't need a music box melody
To know what I mean

Deep in my eyes, what do you see
Deep in my sighs, listen to me
Let the music commence from inside
Not only one sense, but use all five

Come to your senses
Come to your senses
Come to your senses
Baby come back
Alive

3. Louder Than Words
Why do we play with fire?
Why do we run our finger
Through the flame?
Why do we leave our hand
On the stove, although we
Know, we're in for some pain

Oh, why do we refuse
To hang a right,
When the streets are dangerous?
Why does it take an accident,
Before the truth gets through to us?

Cages or wings,
Which do you prefer?
Ask the birds
Fear or love, baby
Don't say the answer
Actions speak louder than words

Why should we try to be our best
When we can just get by
And still gain?
Why do we nod our heads
Although we know the
Boss is wrong as rain?

Why should we blaze a trail
When the well worn path
Seems safe and so inviting?
How, as we travel, can we
See the dismay
And keep from fighting?

Cages or wings,
Which do you prefer?
Ask the birds
Fear or love, baby
Don't say the answer
Actions speak louder than
Louder than
Louder than
Words

What does it take
To wake up a generation?
How can you make someone
Take off and fly?
If we don't wake up
And shake up the nation
We'll eat the dust
Of the world wondering why

Why do we stay with lovers
Who we know down deep
Just aren't right?
Why would we rather put
Ourselves through hell
Than sleep alone at night?

Why do we follow the leaders
Who never lead?
Why does it take catastrophe
To start a revolution
If we're so free?
Tell me why
Someone tell me why
So many people bleed

Cages or wings,
Which do you prefer?
Ask the birds
Fear or love, baby
Don't say the answer
Actions speak louder than

Louder than
Louder than
Louder than
Louder than

Cages or wings,
Which do you prefer?
Ask the birds
Fear or love, baby
Don't say the answer
Actions speak louder
Louder than
Louder than
They speak louder
Louder than
Louder than
Actions speak louder than words

11. Pinkerton weezer
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 05:12 PM by GoPsUx
########El Scorcho.#########
Goddamn you half-Japanese girls
do it to me every time
oh, the redhead said you shred the cello
And I'm jello, baby
But you won't talk, won't look, won't think of me
I'm the epitome of Public Enemy
Why you wanna go and do me like that?
Come down on the street and dance with me

I'm a lot like you so please Hello, I'm here, I'm waiting
I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me

I asked you to go to the Green Day concert
You said you never heard of them
-How cool is that?-
So I went to your room and read your diary:
"watching Grunge leg-drop New-Jack through a press table..." and then my heart stopped:
"listening to Cio-Cio San fall in love all over again."

I'm a lot like you so please Hello, I'm here, I'm waiting
I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me

How stupid is it? I can't talk about it
I gotta sing about it and make a record of my heart
(How stupid is it? Won't you give me a minute
Just come up to me and say hello to my heart) How stupid is it?
For all I know you want me too and maybe you just don't know what to do or maybe you're scared to say: "I'm falling for you"
I wish I could get my head out of the sand 'cuz I think we'd make a good team
and you would keep my fingernails clean
but that's just a stupid dream that I won't realize
'cuz I can't even look in your eyes without shakin', and I ain't fakin'
I'll bring home the turkey if you bring home the bacon.

I'm a lot like you so please Hello, I'm here, I'm waiting
I think I'd be good for you and you'd be good for me

#######Pink Triangle##########
When Im stable long enough
I start to look around for love
See a sweet and floral print
My mind begins the arrangements
But when I start to feel that pull
Turns out I just pulled myself
She would never go with me
Were I the last girl on earth
Im dumb shes a lesbian
I thought I had found the one
We were good as married in my mind
But married in my minds no good
A pink triangle on her sleeve
Let me know the truth
Let me know the truth
Might have smoked a few in my time
But never thought it was a crime
Knew the day would surely come
When Id chill and settle down
When I think Ive found a good old fashioned girl
Then she put me in my place
If everyones a little queer
Cant she be a little straight
Chorus, chorus, chorus
Let me know the truth
#######Butterfly#############
Yesterday i went outside
With my momma's mason jar
Caught a lovely butterfly
When I woke up today
Looked in on my fairy pet
She had withered all away
No more sighing in her breast

I'm sorry for what I did
I did what my body told me to
I didn't mean to do you harm
Everytime I pin down what I think I want it slips away
The ghost slips away.

Smell you on my hand for days
I can't wash away your scent
If I'm a dog then you're a bitch
I guess you're as real as me
Maybe I can live with that
Maybe I need fantasy
Life of chasing butterfly

I'm sorry for what I did
I did what my body told me to
I didn't mean to do you harm
Everytime I pin down what I think I want it slips away
The ghost slips away.

I told you I would return
When the robin makes his nest
But I ain't never coming back
I'm sorry
I'm sorry
I'm sorry

13. Dunno
its just an aggro album where all the songs sound pretty much the same.

I remember one I thought was titled 'True Lies' but its actually 'Two Lies'

I thought it was a fantasy/D&D/medieval themed album but then I read an interview or something saying it wasn't. The vocals are largely indistinguishable anyway so who knows..:shrugs:
