  1. Toby Keith's song "You Shouldn't Kiss Me Like This" is another one for the situation.

    excerpt from the song:

    "..They're all watchin' us now

    They think we're falling in love

    They'd never believe we're just friends

    When you kiss me like this

    I think you mean it like that

    If you do baby kiss me again.."

  2. Gordon Lightfoot sings the first song, "SUNDOWN"

    Lyrics:

    I can see her lyin? back in her satin dress

    In a room where ya do what ya don?t confess

    Sundown ya better take care

    If I find you been creepin? ?round my back stairs

    Sundown ya better take care

    If I find you been creepin? ?round my back stairs

    She?s been lookin? like a queen in a sailor?s dream

    And she don?t always say what she really means

    Sometimes I think it?s a shame

    When I get feelin? better when I?m feelin? no pain

    Sometimes I think it?s a shame

    When I get feelin? better when I?m feelin? no pain

    I can picture every move that a man could make

    Getting lost in her lovin? is your first mistake

    Sundown ya better take care

    If I find you been creepin? ?round my back stairs

    Sometimes I think it?s a sin

    When I feel like I?m winnin? when I?m losin again

    I can see her lookin? fast in her faded jeans

    She?s a hard lovin? woman, got me feelin? mean

    Sometimes I think it?s a shame

    When I get feelin? better when I?m feelin? no pain

    Sundown ya better take care

    If I find you been creepin? ?round my back stairs

    Sundown ya better take care

    If I find you been creepin? ?round my back stairs

    Sometimes I think it?s a sin

    When I feel like I?m winnin? when I?m losin? again

  3. OK I have your answer... (I hope)

    The song is LOVE by Nat King Cole.

    L-O-V-E Lyrics

    L is for the way you look at me

    O is for the only one I see

    V is very, very extraordinary

    E is even more than anyone that you adore can

    Love is all that I can give to you

    Love is more than just a game for two

    Two in love can make it

    Take my heart and please don't break it

    Love was made for me and you

    L is for the way you look at me

    O is for the only one I see

    V is very, very extraordinary

    E is even more than anyone that you adore can

    Love is all that I can give to you

    Love is more than just a game for two

    Two in love can make it

    Take my heart and please don't break it

    Love was made for me and you

    Love was made for me and you

    Love was made for me and you

    It may be possible that more 'male' artists have re made this song? I remember hearing a female sing this song in a car commercial. As it turns out, it could be the singer Fisher, because she also sings a remake of this song on the 'How to lose a guy in 10 days' movie soundtrack? I'm not sure though.

  4. Hi there, Welcome to Songfacts! ::

    The song you are looking for is by Nina Gordon titled "Tonight and the Rest of My Life".

    CLICK HERE to go to Amazon to listen to the sound sample.

    Lyrics:

    down to the earth i fell

    with dripping wings

    heavy things won't fly

    and the sky might catch

    on fire and burn the axis

    of the world that's why i

    prefer a sunless sky to the glittering and stinging

    in my eyes i feel so light

    this is all i want to feel

    tonight i feel so light tonight

    and the rest of my

    life gleaming in the dark sea

    i'm as light as air

    floating there breathlessly

    when the dream

    dissolves i open up my eyes

    i realize that

    everything is shoreless sea

    a weightlessness is

    passing over me everything

    is waves and stars

    the universe is resting in my arms

  5. Congrats on your new position Bobo! Are you sure your new duties won't conflict with your Scrabble obsession? ::

    It is a real treat to see you as a moderator. :: In lieu of the sash, you should grab a chair and whip. Did you not know we can be an unruly bunch here when the mod's are away! ;)

    I like this new forum. I have nothing to contribute yet, but, when I do your finger better be ready on that 'delete' button! ::

    Congrats again!

  6. Hey Cosmosis, You totally made my day! :thumbsup: I just downloaded Win Amp and the plug in. It works beautifully!! ::

    What's even better is that Win Amp is tied in with E-music. E music currently has a promo for 50 free songs. Their selection is not all that great but their download format is MP3!! :coolio:

    Thanks again! You ROCK!! :thumbsup:

    Hey, pdxchump, if I were you I would dump WMP for reasons too numerous to mention here. As for your problem, if you mean when you play original pressed CD's I would recommend downloading Winamp and a plugin called 'gapless'. Propertly configured, it even works with Dark Side Of The Moon.

    As for burning CD's I use Acoustica. You can totally eliminate the gap between songs.

    HTH

  7. AWESOME NEWS!!! I AM SO HAPPY FOR YOU AND SARA! ::

    A big heartfelt CONGRATULATIONS to the both of you, as well as other mod's and/or contributors that make this site such a great place. WAY TO GO!!! :coolio:

    Is it too early to start celebrating now? ::

  8. Looks like your prayer was ANSWERED Muzik!

    ::

    I for one say AMEN!!! ::

    Is there any way to put a limit on the size of images in the data base?

    It's annoying to me when someone posts a huge image that can't even be seen unless one scrolls around it. Not only that, but it ruins the thread because now one must scroll sideways to read a friggin' post

  9. Mike, that's a great idea! I recently found out that there is 'Notify Moderator' icon at the bottom of each post. However, I used this feature yesterday to have Amy delete a link in one of my old posts-that now goes to a objectionable picture. Anyway, I also PM'd her at the same time and the PM got to her first.

    So my question is, how does the 'Notify Moderator' function work? Does it send a PM to only the moderators of that forum?

    Ideally, what would be really neat is for all 'notify mod alerts' to get posted on a 'communal' type message board rather than just PM'd to one particular moderator. That way, if the mods for one board are both away, another mod can take action. (I hope this makes sense?)

    (Geez, leave it to me to create more work for Sara! :: )

    Another thing is, I totally agree that it is up to the users of this board to help out the moderators!! I think everyone has come across really bad examples of poor conduct among users. When this happens, the best thing to do is to notify a moderator! The mods do an awesome job of stepping in and making sure things don't get out of hand. Like Mike said, they can't be everywhere or read every single post, so they can really benefit from everyday users that are out there!

  10. I personally don't listen to Nickelback, but that doesn't mean I hate them either. It has been really sad to see honest request's by new users in the QnA forum get 'crapped' on by people that feel the need to express their one word vocabulary... 'SUCKS'. Either post some help or take your rant to the music discussion. Get it?

    Let this thread be an example of how to properly put a voice to your opinion. I would have posted this link before but that would have really taken the QnA thread over the brink.

    Anyway, here is the 'proof':

    Nickelback Prolific Songwriters??

  11. It does not get any worse than HEARTBEEPS . :thumbsdown:

    This movie starred Andy Kaufman and Bernadette Peters as two robots searching for love. When I went to go see this people actually got up and left the theatre before it was even halfway over!

    The four star rating on IMDB is much too generous!

  12. Well, if Mike is going to do it then so am I!!

    WELCOME BACK EGGPLANT WE MISSED YOU!!! I was thinking of you on JUNE 22nd.

    Did you happen to watch the show? I still have it on TIVO. I can make a copy of it for you if you want. PM me if you missed it.

    It's nice to see you back!

    :: :: :coolio:

    Sorry Ben for hijacking your thread. Did you ever get that book I PM'd you about?

  13. Under the same thought concept as Nicole-"songs I wouldn't listen to otherwise". Here is my list of songs...

    why dont you come with me little girl on a MAGIC CARPET RIDE -Steppenwolf

    SONG 2 - BLUR WOOO HOOOO

    BOOM - POD

    [F-18 or other explosives not required for the above songs. They jam, and the links above are not meant for political purposes. They are there so you can download the video and listen to the full song to see if you like it.] :: :: ::

    Higher Ground - Red Hot Chili Peppers

    Good Vibrations - Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch

    Seven Nation Army - White Stripes

    Crazy - Seal

    Gonna Make you Sweat (everybody dance now) -CC and the Music Factory

    Pump up the Jam - Technotronic

    Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen

    Ray of Light - Madonna

    Lose Yourself - Eminem

    Crazy on You - Heart

    Proud Mary - take your pick but Tina Turner has a very fast rhythm version-very good for cycling or running or aerobics.

    Are You Going to Be My Girl - Jet

    Thunderstruck - AC DC

    Shake a Leg - AC DC

    Also, when I was really into jogging, I would listen to the classical portions of the Rocky soundtrack while I was walking to the place to start my run (or while warming up). So as cheesy as it sounds there is a lot of material on that soundtrack.

    Also, I love Gloria Estefan's song REACH. There is a "NBC Olympic Version" so it goes along with athletics. The lyrics are awesome and really drive a person to become more centered and go the distance.

    Last but not least, another diva with an 'olympic' song is Linda Eder. The song is 'Gold'. She sang this to the performance by ice skater Kristy Yamaguchi during the opening ceremonies of the 2002 Olympic Ceremonies. It is worth looking into! ::

    Cheers!

  14. Did anyone other than me get a laugh out of the thread subjects in this forum?

    *EX-LAX How was I to know?*

    followed by

    *The Tides flowed freely*

    ::

    On a seperate subject, I think I can actually top this story. Imagine being in the military, on a field exercise, and a whole company being fed a bad batch of eggs! Yup, thats right a whole company of 30+ men (including yours truly) in the middle of winter, no toilets, with a bad case of the runs. I don't know how ex lax works, but food poisoning works it way through about every hour. So I guess you could say that night was the only night that our company didnt have to worry about anyone sleeping on guard duty! ::

  15. The nation?s second largest Blues festival gets underway July 2nd on the waterfront in downtown Portland. This four day long event is yet another fine celebration of music in the outdoors. If you are into Blues music, and are in the area you should definitely attend! The price of admission is only $5 plus two cans of non-perishable food per day. There are no seats in front of the main stage so bring a blanket or chairs if you go.

  16. ?Have you heard your favorite song yet? No doubt you will. But if you don?t, do me a favor, complain! Tell ten friends, send passionate e-mails, corral people at the water cooler, and explain why the song YOU love should be on the list, or ranked higher. When you do this, AFI has achieved its goal: To spark a national dialogue about how great movies and great songs make beautiful music together. These discussions drive millions of people back to the classics of American Film. That?s our ultimate goal. So let the chorus of opinion begin, it is music to our ears.?

  17. Mindcrime, you are killing me! :: I've honestly never seen the video, and I am a huge Floyd fan.

    Does anyone have any suggestions for catching any Floyd videos? I am not a huge fan of MTV or VH1. One time I sat through VH1 classic in hopes of some Floyd videos. I never saw any, and had to sit through two videos by Swing Out Sister for my efforts! *shudders*
