  1. Again, having been born and raised in the southwest, and indeed still living here, I speak (drum roll....) ONE language! But I CAN order at Taco Bell.
  2. "Lido Shuffle" ~ Boz Skaggs :guitar:
  3. can you tell I'm bored my first day back at work after vacation? Hmmm... well, here's another notable Roger Clyne lyric...(although all of his lyrics are quite notable!!) "General, General, I gotta ask it With this new uniform do I get a casket?" RCPM
  4. I agree about the overreacting. And I didn't see Live 8, but I know on the original recording of the song "Who Are You" there is a phrase at the end where he sings, "Oh, who the f@@@ are you." So I can see that that may have made it into the airwaves.
  5. Good grief... all this talk about classical music ~ I'm not worthy!! I WISH that I liked classical music... it would be so... well... classy! But alas, I can say the oldest music I like is the stuff of my mom's that I used to play on the record player when I was little... "Sixteen Tons" ~ Tennessee Ernie Ford; "Don't Be Cruel" ~ Elvis... you get the picture. I do love Renaissance music. Does that count?
  6. It's true! I'm a flounder! Woohoo! Thanks Peaches Actually, the reason I was giving "advice" is because I made up this lame thread!!!
  7. But - it doesn't have to be a song title... in fact, it might work better if it were the lyrics rather than the title. And you can use as many lines from the song as you want, but try to not make it end with an impossible word... Star in the dust ~ Walter Egan "Star In the Dust"
  8. Edna - you're good. Mac Davis was my first thought.
  9. this is the cheesiest guess ever... but the Bay City Rollers? (popular worldwide... not unlike "Baywatch")
  10. okay, another bump-start. This time if this thread stalls, 86 it! Ahead of me Oh glory be A great big tree Oh lucky me The nearest branch was ten feet up I'd have to jump and trust my luck ~ (traditional) (this is from a song I remember from 6th grade camp!
  11. I hope it's not too late to nominate... I'd like to nominate Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers "Americano!" Roger Clyne is the most unbelievable lyricist ~ and most down-to-earth performer ~ I've ever met. Please see www.azpeacemakers.com. Some reviews below: If you're sick of rage rock, tired of the melody-devoid primal screaming of bands such as Slipknot, Staind, Tool and Papa Roach (we can't all be Rage Against the Machine), let me suggest Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers. Here's what allmusicguide.com (the second-best Web site out there) says about his latest album, ¡Americano! : "¡Americano! is one fine album; it should be played at earsplitting volume in pool halls, bowling alleys and backyard bashes and on college radio stations. It should blare from the CD players of fast cars roaring down empty highways under the stars and just before dawn. Indeed, it should be savored and celebrated by those swaggering street denizens known as the rock & roll faithful as proof that the good stuff never disappears." But don't listen to me. Or them. Listen to Roger. Try the tracks Counterclockwise and Switchblade . Then go ahead, raise your goblet of rock." -- John Walters "¡Americano!" Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers From the title track to the gorgeous "Your Name on a Grain of Rice" to the gut-wrenching "Switchblade," no other Arizona songwriter captures the Sonoran Southwest like Roger Clyne, and he and his band?s latest CD of classic, sweat-drenched American rock ?n? roll is the best work of his career. Here is one vote for Clyne to supplant Dolan Ellis as the state?s official balladeer. -- Chris Hansen Orf "...rock 'n' roll is still out there...Americano! is proof that the crazy, reckless, restless, swaggering soul of American rock is still burning a hole in the night sky...guitars blaze, quake and quiver, drums slip, thud and thunder with killer melodies and hooks and the occasional reggae or mariachi rhythm laced through the middle to keep it all honest and interesting" -- Thom Jurek :happybanana:
  12. I used to pride myself on never watching any shows on TV (except Friends, which I watched religiously). In the past year, though, I've become addicted to 3 - Desperate Housewives, Medium, and Apprentice. I hate being a slave to TV! Think when this next season starts, I'll divert my attention.
  13. I think it was about the time I stopped going to clubs because the music they were playing was hip-hop and rap. I was about 25 and couldn't take that type of music anymore. I also can't stand the real headbanger stuff that started coming out when I was about 30. The only good music is the music I like!! :happybanana:
  14. here's a little known one that's one of my favorites of all time ~ "Well I sure had fun when I was your Number One But now I'm standing in Number Two." Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers
  15. The devil's not in the details; no, the devil's in my pants. ::
  16. Well... in an effort to keep it going, I'll take a little liberty here... Boo-gie nights - aint' no doubt we are here til morning ~ Heatwave
  17. none of the above... was "introduced" to his music just over a year ago by my son's Big Brother (a die-hard fan since Roger's days with the Refreshments) and I found that I just really love his music. I'm a words person, so I really get into lyrics, and he's extremely articulate and can put together words like nothing I've ever seen. Plus he's a down-to-earth guy... at his Rocky Point concert in May, he gave my nephew a shout-out for his bachelor party and he takes time after every show to sign autographs for everybody who's waiting. Okay, blah blah blah. Try it, you might like it, too.
  18. there may be something on here like this already, but I haven't seen it! Write a line in a well-known (or not) song, and the next person takes the last word in that line and writes a line in a song using that word as the first word... Clear as mud? For example: (Roger Clyne) I spend years alone every day I don't see you. Next person takes "you" and uses it as the first word in another song line.
  19. hey back atcha. Since you're in AZ, are you a Roger fan? If not, WHAT'S KEEPING YOU??? LOL
  20. Lyrically Roger Clyne has no equal. Musically, he's right there at the top of the heap. The man is a genius.
  21. Silver Springs - Fleetwood Mac What Mattered Most - (don't know) Your Name On A Grain of Rice - Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers He Thinks He'll Keep Her - Mary Chapin Carpenter Independence Day - Martina McBride In My Life - the Beatles Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkle Out There - Patty Smyth and I'm sure I'll think of two more just as I'm falling asleep tonight!
