  • Why is it that songs about killing your lover over his/her infidelity soars to the top of the charts? ...
    Here is a pair that went gold in their respective genres. Of course, the weapon of choice for both of these killers is a knife - perhaps thats what made them so popular.

    The tacks won't come out! Well, they went in ... maybe they're income tacks.

  • Next up ... Lorne Greene, no less!

    The song is titled "Ringo" and features Lorne in a rhymed-speaking ballad of his experiences with the killer/gunslinger named Ringo.
    Here's his tune that was an unqualified hit when it was released. However, at the end of the song he offers these lines -

    The story spread throughout the land
    That I had beaten Ringo's hand
    And it was "just the years", they say
    That made me put my guns away

    But on his grave they can't explain
    The tarnished star above the name -
    Of Ringo


    Hell, I CAN explain it! It's very simple - he gave it to him, so its Ringo's STAR!!

  • It's infrequent you listen to a song that contains lyrics that are no longer "current" ... but this tune has completely been left in the dust as far as relevance to a current listening public.

    It's hardly ever that you get a phone number that you've dialed that just rings and rings and rings ... invariably there is a voicemail message to respond to, or even a choice to send a text message. Although a very good song, ELO's "Telephone Line" just doesn't make good lyrical sense anymore.

  • Honest-to-goodness, folks, I was taking my lunchtime walk (which happens to parallel a major freeway access road) when I discovered a tossed CD. The jewel case was broken, but the CD unharmed. It was titled, "Lupe Fiasco - Food and Liquor" so I was expecting songs that included vegetables and wine, but what I got was a rap CD with so-called "songs" that had nothing to do with food and drink. In fact, what I got was a CD filled with this guy gasping for breath, because nearly every "song" was filled with his incessant inhaling which diluted any message he was trying to convey.

    Here, listen to this tripe!

    The one song by Lupe Fiasco that I know is "Daydreamin'" with Jill Scott, and that one I like a lot.  Maybe it's because I saw the video first and fell in love with Ms. Scott - she's gorgeous in that video!   ;D
