The Songfactors' Choice Top Ten #220


Recommended Posts

One of the most beautifully romantic songs I know:

"Into My Arms" - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds (1997)

And I feel the lyrics deserve a full cut and paste...

I don't believe in an interventionist God

But I know, darling, that you do

But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him

Not to intervene when it came to you

Not to touch a hair on your head

To leave you as you are

And if He felt He had to direct you

Then direct you into my arms

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms

And I don't believe in the existence of angels

But looking at you I wonder if that's true

But if I did I would summon them together

And ask them to watch over you

To each burn a candle for you

To make bright and clear your path

And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love

And guide you into my arms

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms

But I believe in Love

And I know that you do too

And I believe in some kind of path

That we can walk down, me and you

So keep your candles burning

And make her journey bright and pure

That she will keep returning

Always and evermore

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms, O Lord

Into my arms

And for balance, a decidedly unromantic one :P

"Mr. Hurricane" - Beast (2008)

Also I put up a YouYube vid for your Freak Power song. I hope it's suitable. I personally prefer your dailymotion vid it's pretty cool. I'm wondering if he actually let that candle melt on his head *ouch*.

yes, thanks... I only didn't link to youtube because they didn't have the original video :)

and I actually asked myself the exact same question about the candle on the head, when I saw the video for the first time back in 1993 :laughing: :crazy:

I don't think I've heard any of these songs before, except for GoGo's Vacation, What a Fool Believes, I'm a Believer, and my own 2.

Really? not Victim Of Love ? not Turn To Stone ? Those seem pretty hard to have escaped.

(Not to mention The Wonder of You, Behind Closed Doors, The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia. Definitely more Country-oriented, but seemingly ubiquitous.)

But I'm a great one to talk. I was completely unaware of Bobby McFerrin's Don't Worry Be Happy until at least 10-12 years after it was number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and the Grammy Song of the Year.

I don't think I have before, after listening to the full playlist, but they were before my time. I have heard your O'Jays nomination before though, it's the theme song for Donald Trump's Celebrity Apprentice.
