Shall I bring things back ontopic? ;)

Today I found this extraordinary 17 minutes live performance:

The Celebration of the Lizard ~ The Doors

Lions in the street and roaming

Dogs in heat, rabid, foaming

A beast caged in the heart of a city

The body of his mother

Rotting in the summer ground

He fled the town

He went down South and crossed the border

Left chaos and disorder

Back there over his shoulder

One morning he awoke in a green hotel

With a strange creature groaning beside him

Sweat oozed from its shining skin

is everybody in?

is everybody in?

is everybody in?

the ceremony is about to begin

Wake up!

You can't remember where it was

Had this dream stopped?

The snake was pale gold

Glazed and shrunken

We were afraid to touch it

The sheets were hot dead prisons

And she was beside me

Old, she's no, young

Her dark red hair

the white soft skin

Now, run to the mirror in the bathroom

Look!

shes coming in here

I can't live thru each slow century of her moving

I let my cheek slide down

The cool smooth tile

Feel the good cold stinging blood

The smooth hissing snakes of rain . . .

Once I had, a little game

I liked to crawl, back in my brain

I think you know, the game I mean

I mean the game, called 'go insane'

you should try, this little game

Just close your eyes, forget your name

Forget the world, forget the people

And we'll erect, a different steeple

This little game, is fun to do

Just close your eyes, no way to lose

And I'm right there, I'm going too

Release control, we're breaking thru

Way back deep into the brain

Back where there's never any pain

And the rain falls gently on the town

And over the heads of all of us

And in the labyrinth of streams

Beneath, the quiet unearthly presence of

gentle hill dwellers, in the gentle hills around

Reptiles abounding

Fossils, caves, cool air heights

Each house repeats a mold

Windows rolled

Beast car locked in against morning

All now sleeping

Rugs silent, mirrors vacant

Dust Lying under the beds of lawful couples

Wound in sheets

And daughters, smug

With semen eyes in their nipples

Wait

There's been a slaughter here

(Don't stop to speak or look around

Your gloves and fan are on the ground

We're getting out of town

We're going on the run

And you're the one I want to come)

Not to touch the earth

Not to see the sun

Nothing left to do, but

Run, run, run

Let's run

lets run

House upon the hill

Moon is lying still

Shadows of the trees

Witnessing the wild breeze

C'mon baby run with me

Let's run

Run with me

Run with me

Run with me

Let's run

The mansion is warm, at the top of the hill

Rich are the rooms and the comforts there

Red are the arms of luxuriant chairs

And you won't know a thing till you get inside

Dead president's corpse in the driver's car

The engine runs on glue and tar

C'mon along, we're not going very far

To the East to meet the Czar

run with me

run with me

run with me

let's run

Some outlaws lived by the side of the lake

The minister's daughter's in love with the snake

Who lives in a well by the side of the road

Wake up, girl! We're almost home

We should see the gates by mornin'

We should be inside by evening,

sun sun sun

burn burn burn

burn, burn, burn,

i will get you

soon,

soon,

soon

i am the lizard king

i can do anything

We came down

The rivers and highways

We came down from

Forests and falls

We came down from

Carson and Springfield

We came down from

Phoenix enthralled

And I can tell you

The names of the Kingdom

I can tell you

The things that you know

Listening for a fistful of silence

Climbing valleys into the shade

for seven years, i dwelt

in the loose palace of exile

playing strange games with the girls of the island

now, i have come again

to the land of the fair, and the strong, and the wise

brothers and sisters of the pale forest

children of night

who among you will run with the hunt?

now night arives with her purple legion

Retire now to your tents and to your dreams

Tomorrow we enter the town of my birth

I want to be ready'

The Trees- Rush

There is unrest in the forest

There is trouble with the trees

For the maples want more sunlight

And the oaks ignore their pleas

The trouble with the maples

(And they're quite convinced they're right)

They say the oaks are just too lofty

And they grab up all the light

But the oaks can't help their feelings

If they like the way they're made

And they wonder why the maples

Can't be happy in their shade

There is trouble in the forest

And the creatures all have fled

As the maples scream "Oppression!"

And the oaks just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union

And demanded equal rights

"The oaks are just too greedy,

"We will make them give us light!"

Now there's no more oak oppression

For they passed a noble law

And The Trees are all kept equal

By hatchet,

Axe,

And saw....

That was the first time you heard it? Quite the experience, isn't it?

the first time I actually take time to listen to the lyrics through the entire song.

Quite the experience indeed!!

In My Daughter's Eyes

Martina McBride

In my daughter's eyes I am a hero

I am strong and wise and I know no fear

But the truth is plain to see

She was sent to rescue me

I see who I wanna be

In my daughter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes everyone is equal

Darkness turns to light and the

world is at peace

This miracle God gave to me gives me

strength when I am weak

I find reason to believe

In my daughter's eyes

And when she wraps her hand

around my finger

Oh it puts a smile in my heart

Everything becomes a little clearer

I realize what life is all about

It's hangin' on when your heart

has had enough

It's giving more when you feel like giving up

I've seen the light

It's in my daugter's eyes

In my daughter's eyes I can see the future

A reflection of who I am and what will be

Though she'll grow and someday leave

Maybe raise a family

When I'm gone I hope you see how happy

she made me

For I'll be there

In my daughter's eyes

Ca vaudrait la peine de creer un fil uniquement pour les entretiens en francais? Moi, ca branche.

Vous, qu'est-ce qu'on y pense? :shades:

Merde, voilà que les songfacteurs commencent à poster en français -ce qui d´aillers est très relax pour moi- et je l´apprends deux ou trois jours plus tard... :P

Beef, ton français est excellent... :bow: un fil en français, moi ça me branche aussi...

Martin, ton français est très bon aussi, ainsi que celui de Fin et de Radhichette... :cool:

Peachette chérie, toi tu es tout à fait exceptionelle :bow: :bow: :bow:

Et non, pas tous les belges parlent français. Les flamands parlent hollandais, il me semble...

Pour l´allemand, si vous voulez... moi je ne parle pas l´allemand. Par contre, un fil en russe serait très marrant :laughing:

¿Y un hilo en argentino, para cuando? :P

y, me olvidé de un idioma...

Wishlist ~ Pearl Jam

I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off.

I wish I was a sacrifice but somehow still lived on.

I wish I was a sentimental ornamnet you hung on

The christmas tree, I wish I was the star that went on top,

I wish I was the evidence, I wish I was the grounds

for fifty million hands up raised and opened toward the sky.

I wish I was a sailor with someone who waited for me.

I wish I was as fortunate, as fortunate as me.

I wish I was a messenger, and all the news was good.

I wish I was the full moon shining off a camaro's hood.

I wish I was an alien, at home behind the sun,

I wish I was the souvenir you kept your house key on.

I wish I was the pedal break that you depended on.

I wish I was the verb "to trust", and never "let you down".

I wish I was the radio song, the one that you turned up,

I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish,

I guess it never stops.

Love Spreads - The Stone Roses

Love spreads her arms, waits there for the nails

I forgive you, boy, I will prevail

Too much to take, some cross to bear

I'm hiding in the trees with a picnic, she's over there, yeah

Yeah,yeah,yeah

Yeah,yeah,yeah

She didn't scream, she didn't make a sound

I forgive you boy, but don't leave town

Cold black skin, naked in the rain

Hammer flash in the lightning, they're hurting her again

Let me put you in the picture, let me show you what I mean

The messiah is my sister, ain't no king man, she's my queen

I have a dream, I've seen the light

Don't put it out, say she's alright, yeah, she's my sister

She didn't scream, she didn't make a sound

I forgive you boy, but don't leave town

Cold black skin, naked in the rain

Hammer flash in the lightning, they're hurting her again

Oh, oh, ooh

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Let me put you in the picture, let me show you what I mean

The messiah is my sister, ain't no king man, she's my queen

I have a dream, I've seen the light

Don't put it out, say she's alright, yeah, she's my sister

London calling to the faraway towns

Now that war is declared and battle come down

London calling to the underworld

Come out of the cupboard all you boys and girs

London calling now don't look to us

Phony Beatlemania has bitten the dust

London calling see we ain't got no swing

Except for the ring of that truncheon thing

The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in

Meltdown expected the wheat is growing thin

Engines stop running but I have no fear

'Cause London is crowning and I live by the river

London calling to the imitation zone

Forget it brother, you can go it alone

London calling to the zombies of death

Quit holding out and draw another breath

London calling and I don't wanna shout

But while we were talking I saw you noddin' out

London calling, see we ain't got no highs

Except for the one with the yellowy eyes

The ice age is coming, the sun's zooming in

Engines stop running the wheat is growing thin

A nuclear error but I have no fear

'Cause London is drowning and I live by the river

Now get this

London calling yes I was there too

And you know what they said - well some of it was true

London calling at the top of the dial

And after all this won't you give me a smile?

I never felt so much like...

:bow: :rockon: :bow: ad infinitum

"There Is A War"

Leonard Cohen

There is a war between the rich and poor,

a war between the man and the woman.

There is a war between the ones who say there is a war

and the ones who say there isn't.

Why don't you come on back to the war, that's right, get in it,

why don't you come on back to the war, it's just beginning.

Well I live here with a woman and a child,

the situation makes me kind of nervous.

Yes, I rise up from her arms, she says "I guess you call this love";

I call it service.

Why don't you come on back to the war, don't be a tourist,

why don't you come on back to the war, before it hurts us,

why don't you come on back to the war, let's all get nervous.

You cannot stand what I've become,

you much prefer the gentleman I was before.

I was so easy to defeat, I was so easy to control,

I didn't even know there was a war.

Why don't you come on back to the war, don't be embarrassed,

why don't you come on back to the war, you can still get married.

There is a war between the rich and poor,

a war between the man and the woman.

There is a war between the left and right,

a war between the black and white,

a war between the odd and the even.

Why don't you come on back to the war, pick up your tiny burden,

why don't you come on back to the war, let's all get even,

why don't you come on back to the war, can't you hear me speaking?

"Take This Waltz"

Leonerd Cohen

LEONARD COHEN - Take This Waltz

Now in Vienna there's ten pretty women

There's a shoulder where Death comes to cry

There's a lobby with nine hundred windows

There's a tree where the doves go to die

There's a piece that was torn from the morning

And it hangs in the Gallery of Frost

Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay

Take this waltz, take this waltz

Take this waltz with the clamp on its jaws

Oh I want you, I want you, I want you

On a chair with a dead magazine

In the cave at the tip of the lily

In some hallways where love's never been

On a bed where the moon has been sweating

In a cry filled with footsteps and sand

Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay

Take this waltz, take this waltz

Take its broken waist in your hand

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz

With its very own breath of brandy and Death

Dragging its tail in the sea

There's a concert hall in Vienna

Where your mouth had a thousand reviews

There's a bar where the boys have stopped talking

They've been sentenced to death by the blues

Ah, but who is it climbs to your picture

With a garland of freshly cut tears?

Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay

Take this waltz, take this waltz

Take this waltz it's been dying for years

There's an attic where children are playing

Where I've got to lie down with you soon

In a dream of Hungarian lanterns

In the mist of some sweet afternoon

And I'll see what you've chained to your sorrow

All your sheep and your lilies of snow

Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay

Take this waltz, take this waltz

With its "I'll never forget you, you know!"

This waltz, this waltz, this waltz, this waltz ...

And I'll dance with you in Vienna

I'll be wearing a river's disguise

The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,

My mouth on the dew of your thighs

And I'll bury my soul in a scrapbook,

With the photographs there, and the moss

And I'll yield to the flood of your beauty

My cheap violin and my cross

And you'll carry me down on your dancing

To the pools that you lift on your wrist

Oh my love, Oh my love

Take this waltz, take this waltz

It's yours now. It's all that there is

Romeo And Juliet~Dire Straits

A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade

Laying everybody low with a love song that he made

Finds a streetlight steps out of the shade

Says something like "you and me babe, how about it?"

Juliet says "hey, it's Romeo, you nearly gave me a heart attack"

He's underneath the window she's singing "hey la my boyfriend's back

You shouldn't come around here singing up at people like that"

Anyway what you gonna do about it?

Juliet, the dice was loaded from the start

And I bet that you exploded into my heart

And I forget I forget the movie song

When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong?

Juliet

Come up on different streets, they both were streets of shame

Both dirty, both mean, yes and the dream was just the same

And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real

How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals?

When you can fall for chains of silver

You can fall for chains of gold

You can fall for pretty strangers

And the promises they hold

You promised me everything, you promised me thick and thin, yeah

Now you just say "oh Romeo, yeah, you know I used to have a scene with him"

Juliet, when we made love you used to cry

You said "I love you like the stars above, I'll love you till I die"

There's a place for us you know the movie song

When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong?

Juliet

I can't do the talk so like the talk on the TV

And I can't do a love song like the way it's meant to be

I can't do everything, but I'll do anything for you

I can't do anything except be in love with you

And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be

All I do is keep the beat and the bad company

Now all I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme

Juliet, I'd do the stars with you any time

Juliet, when we made love you used to cry

You said I love you like the stars above, I'll love you till I die

There's a place for us you know the movie song

When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong?

Juliet

A lovestruk Romeo sings the streets a serenade

Laying everybody low with a lovesong that he made

Finds a convinient streetlight, steps out of the shade

Says something like "you and me babe, how about it?"

"You and me babe, how about it?"
