  2. far superior list is awesome! But I'm also looking for obscure wonders. I think I'll make it 200 songs, remember to nominate your favorites

    I have the first inductee, The Spirit Of Radio by RUSH

    I've been listening to this one so much lately, and my grandest prayer growing up was that I was praying out of integrity not pride. And music is my outlet when the whole seems fake, it's all I have left that's honest.

    "All this machinery making modern music

    can still be open hearted

    not so coldly charted, it's really just a question

    of your honesty, yeah, your honesty

    One likes to believe in the freedom of music

    but glittering prizes and endless compromises

    shatter the illusion of integrity."

    so beautiful I could cry

  3. I will nominate a few of my favorite songs, add and change songs till we get a solid best 100 then I'll induct

    02. The Spirit Of Radio - Rush

    03. Goodnight Saigon - Billy Joel

    04. Watching The Wheels - John Lennon

    05. A Day In The Life - The Beatles

    add and change

  4. Chapter 1


    It was August 1995, incarnation "Andrew Sears" was playing in the water at Wildwood, New Jersey. He wasn't much of a fan of music at the time, but he had a some what interesting imagination. He thought turning the pillow over to make it cold was a sideaffect of a breathing disorder. 

       He remembers the family trip as the first vivid memory though splochy.  His parents decided to leave the things in the car, they were arguing on the way up. Everyone went to change right away happy to see us, and Mammie pulled her pants down right in front of him. His sister lost a hamburger from a seagull, and his cousin found a dime in the sand and gave it to him. Even then he wondered could the world really be real. He prayed to his grandma that nobody would have too much fun, and oh the eye browls on his mom could send him to hell!

      While in the water, "Andrew" was always slightly physic in his young age. He channeled music as he frolicked through the water, the melody sounded light blue. He didn't really think the words that came as his built in epitaph, but rather recieved them, "the waves go crashing down, the water never drowns." He raced into the waves with that blue melody in his head, but pretended for some bizarre reason, he was an "animal" named "Chuck." Chuck saved the world but also ate people, and the "news" loved Chuck sightnings...and they were accompanied by that song. "Chuck" gave "Andrew" a riddle to solve: "the waves go crashing down, the water never drowns" Up until "Andrew" was 15 years old he'd hear that and frolic but finally like the Christmas bell did not ring any more. From those two lines the song grew with each trip to the beach, it wasn't till later "Chuck" gave "Andrew" the tagline and the title, "when I try to leave they holler, never lie to holy water." Fascinating, I thought it should be the theme music to some new aged baywatch.

    "The waves go crashing down

    The water never drowns

    When I try and leave they holler

    Never lie to Holy Water"

    It's really confusing trying to convey the way a kid thinks through language that is understandable. "Andrew" was sensitive to, "levels" which A Course In Miracles states, "All disease is a result of level confusion." Levels I guess, can represent guilt which isn't linear. Home was a different "color" or different "level", Each song "Andrew" would create would be a result of a level shift. It's hard to bring back all the songs he thought or scribed and pretended beanie babies sang them. "Andrew" knew about levels, the people didn't. He wrote a "black" song 20/20 for that transition from living room to forced bedroom good night. "Andrew" didn't know what 20/20 was but knew it came on after he was forced "into a new level." The song he tried to make like a rap, something you'd hear on the radio, something "grown up", whatever the hell 20/20 was, was apart of that level division.

    "you got me 20 things for Christmas and 20 dollars too, so you sing 20/20 yeah yeah, 20/20, all goes to your dad"

    That's a riddle "Andrew" is still trying to decypher but it's good to look into the pyschology of what a kid believes represents "adult" or "grown up." Kids don't start with any knowledge, everything they aquire is learned. What this song acknowledges is reciprocity, pedistals for "getting something"

    01. Holy Water

    When I woke up this morning

    I knew we were going to the beach

    So I grabbed my hat and got in the van

    Because we were going to the beach

    Oh what nice cabbin, they left so clean

    And right now my family and I are going to the beach

    The waves go crashing down

    The water never drowns

    The suns so hot today

    It's burning on my face

    The food that I eat

    Gets sandy from the beach

    But it tastes a special way

    The waves go crashing down

    They make us fall to the ground

    Out in the water, Melissa runs from slaughter

    From the sharkly beast

    The waves go crashing down

    The water never drowns

    The suns so high today

    Tomorrows on it's way

    The time that I've been here

    Makes me look forward to next year

    Maybe then we'll stay

    Once more we'll cheer

    The waves go crashing down

    The water never drowns

    The suns so bright today

    I have to go away

    When I go to leave they holler

    Never lie to Holy Water

    So you come back again someday

    The waves go crashing down

    The water never drowns

    The suns so hot today

    I have to go away...

    02. 20/20

    You got me 20 things for Christmas

    And 20 dollars too

    So you sing, 20/20

    Yeah yeah!

    20/20, all goes to your dad

    You visit 20 times a year

    On 20 holidays

    So you sing, 20/20

    Yeah yeah!

    20/20, it'll drive you mad

    You stayed up 20 extra hours

    For 20 different years

    So you sing, 20/20

    Yeah man!

    20/20, it all goes to your dad

    20/20, yeah yeah

    20/20, yeah man

    (6 year old Andrew did a lot of acid)

    03. Welcome To The Night

    Of Welcome to the night

    04. Sing With The Camels

    Sing with the camels

    Day and night

    06. Responsible

    One of God's best creations

    Of our beatiful nation

    07. Loser

    You are a loser

    Just a loser

    A no friend, no one

    Someone with no love

    What happened?

    You are a snoozer

    Just a plain old loser

    Just a plain old loser

    You want to be cool

    But you are a loser

    Just a loser

    A no friend, no one

    Someone with no love

    Just a plain loser

    Just a plain loser

    Oh never underestimate a dime

    Never underestimate a diamond

    Oh never, underestimate a dime

    Never underestimate a dime

    Never underestimate a dime, loser

    Never underestimate a diamond

    Oh never, underestimate a dime

    08. Pelican Power

    Pelican Power, every hour...of the day

    Pelican Power, get out and save...the day


    09. The World

    If we could start the world all over again

    What would become of these, 

    Things we've come to know

    If we could start the world all over again

    Would animals be stairs, would people be scared

    Would any one be prepared?

    Would everything be better then

    If we could start the world again?

    If my questions could be answered

    What would happen to

    These thoughts I think are false

    If these questions could be download

    Maybe all would beat the show 

    Would everything be better then

    If we could start the world again

    If we could start the world all over again

    What would become of all of them

    If the dead could sing one more time

    And we could reschedule the deadline

    Then all wouldn't leave their friends

    If these questions could be satisfied

    And all would download the deadline

    Everything would be better then,

    If we could start the world again

    If we could start the world all over again

    What would become of all ignorance

    Everything would be better then

    If we could Start the world again


  5. I'm so happy to have found this section! Since I was 4, now 19 somewhere in the depths of astrology certain melodies and lyrics would just come to me. I never really learned a musical instrument, but I've organized 20 "albums" which are basically musical time capsules for my life. And I would record MP3s into audacity of me striking basic piano chords, as well as guitar. Any way it's very atypical but I think if people really understood the depths of PMS (it makes

    you bleed) it would be among the class of Lennon, Bowie, Dylan ect as a music fan. The songs I hear in my head are classics, but they don't turn out that way on paper.

    I have a strange notion that these songs will reach some kind of fame before the world is destroyed, almost like a destiny kind of thing. Any way, I'll post the history of Pelican Music Stuff here. Also I'm open to any ideas.

  6. Hello, I had this idea for awhile to assemble a book of all my theories, favorite quotes, pictures ect. It would be just for me, something to carry around as my "personal Bible"

    Any way, I'm trying to come up with my "hymnal", that is a section filled with lyrics of the most "worthy" songs. I've written over 400 songs, and some will be my own and there are some songs I'm rather partial too, but as of yet no songs were inducted into the hymnal. That's why I signed up! Music fans it's up to you to nominate songs! I'm going to say the Hymnal should have 200 songs, and I hope to compile my book by the end of the week.

    Can you help me out?
