I Can't Make You Love Me

Bonnie Raitt

(this is such a sad song, but I love it)

Turn down the lights, turn down the bed

Turn down these voices inside my head

Lay down with me, tell me no lies

Just hold me close, don't patronize - don't patronize me

Cause I can't make you love me if you don't

You can't make your heart feel something it won't

Here in the dark, in these lonely hours

I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power

But you won't, no you won't

'Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't

I'll close my eyes, then I won't see

The love you don't feel when you're holding me

Morning will come and I'll do what's right

Just give me till then to give up this fight

And I will give up this fight

Cause I can't make you love me if you don't

You can't make your heart feel something it won't

Here in the dark, in these lonely hours

I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power

But you won't, no you won't

'Cause I can't make you love me, if you don't

You actually had a good day, all day long without any problems or worries.

Lovely Day - Bill Withers

When I wake up in the morning, love

And the sunlight hurts my eyes

And something without warning, love

Bears heavy on my mind

Then I look at you

And the world's alright with me

Just one look at you

And I know it's gonna be

A lovely day

... lovely day, lovely day, lovely day ...

... lovely day, lovely day, lovely day ...

When the day that lies ahead of me

Seems impossible to face

When someone else instead of me

Always seems to know the way

Then I look at you

And the world's alright with me

Just one look at you

And I know it's gonna be

A lovely day

... lovely day, lovely day, lovely day ...

... lovely day, lovely day, lovely day ...

When the day that lies ahead of me

Seems impossible to face

When someone else instead of me

Always seems to know the way

Then I look at you

And the world's alright with me

Just one look at you

And I know it's gonna be

A lovely day

... lovely day, lovely day, lovely day ...

... lovely day, lovely day, lovely day ...

Jen, I just love that song to pieces.

Vacation? Sorry Jen...I just don't have the time.

Too Busy Thinking About My Baby

Marvin Gaye

I ain't got time

To think about money

Or what it can buy

And I ain't got time

To sit down and wonder

What makes the birdies fly

And I don't have the time

To think about what makes the flowers grow

And I never give it a second thought

To where the rivers flow

Too busy thinking about my baby

And I ain't got time to nothing else

Too busy thinking about my baby

And I ain't got time to nothing else

I ain't got time to discuss the weather

Or how it's gonna last

And I ain't got time to do no studying

Once I get out of class

And I'm just a fellow

I got a one track mind

And when it comes to

Thinking about anything about my baby

I just don't have the time

Too busy thinking about my baby

And I ain't got time to nothing else

Too busy thinking about my baby

And I ain't got time to nothing else

All the diamonds and pearls in the world

Could never match her worth

She's some kind of wonderful

People tell you

I've got heaven right here on earth

And I'm just a fellow

With a one track mind

And when it comes to thinking about

Anything but my baby

I just don't have the time

Too busy thinking about my baby

And I ain't got time to nothing else

Too busy thinking about my baby

And I ain't got time to nothing else

You're busy thinking about vacation.

"Counterclockwise"

RCPM

Bought a pancho and sandals

I threw away my shoes

Brought a toothbrush and a razor

I probably won’t use

Hit the track, turned my back

on the Headline News

On my way to meet the moon on the bay

Where she’s risin’ big and full and blue

Where the gringo boys got their dark sunglasses

And the girls on the beach

are all shakin’ their fingers

Cause no matter how dark the lenses

They can see that the eyes

and the minds of the boys

are somewhere they ain’t supposed to be….

The breeze is blowin’ me a new perfume

It’s givin’ my heart a little elbow room

And the kids are lightin’ firecrackers

Boom! Boom! Boom!

No one recalls when the clock on the wall

stopped wavin’ its hands all day

Maybe it died of loneliness or boredom

Rest in peace, you know it’s better this way

The breeze is blowin’ me a new perfume

It’s givin’ my heart a little elbow room

And the kids are lightin’ firecrackers

Boom! Boom! Boom!

And all my friends are laughin’

at each other’s lies

And the sea is singin’ lullabies

And everything’s slowin’ down

flowin’ counterclockwise

Some of the Americans are ugly Americans

But we know we ain’t all that way

So we nod and we smile

and we wait a little while

Because they never stay anywhere

very long, anyway

The breeze is blowin’ me a new perfume

It’s givin’ my heart a little elbow room

And the kids are lightin’ firecrackers

Boom! Boom! Boom!

And all my friends are laughin’

at each other’s lies

And the sea is singin’ lullabies

And everything’s slowin’ down

flowin’ counterclockwise…

9 To 5

-Dolly Parton

Jump on outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen

Pour myself a cup of ambition

And yawn and stretch and try to come to life

Jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin'

Out on the street the traffic starts jumpin'

With folks like me on the job from 9 to 5

Workin' 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin'

Barely gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin'

They just use your mind and they never give you credit

It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it

9 to 5, for service and devotion

You would think that I would deserve a fat promotion

Want to move ahead but the boss won't seem to let me

I swear sometimes that man is out to get me!

They let you dream just to watch 'em shatter

You're just a step on the boss-man's ladder

But you got dreams he'll never take away

You're in the same boat with a lotta your friends

Waitin' for the day your ship'll come in

'n' the tide's gonna turn and it's all gonna roll your way

Workin' 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin'

Barely gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin'

They just use your mind and you never get the credit

It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it

9 to 5, yeah they got you where they want you

There's a better life, and you dream about it, don't you?

It's a rich man's game no matter what they call it

And you spend your life puttin' money in his wallet

9 to 5, whoa what a way to make a livin'

'stead-a gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin'

They just use your mind and they never give you credit

It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it

9 to 5, yeah they done got you where they want you

FADE

There's a better life, and you dream about it, don't you?

It's a rich man's game no matter what they call it

Workin' At The Car Wash Blues

Jim Croce

Words and Music by Jim Croce

Well, I had just got out from the county prison,

Doin' ninety days for non-support.

Tried to find me an executive position,

But no matter how smooth I talked

They wouldn't listen to the fact that I was a genius

The man say, "We got all that we can use."

Now I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin'

Working at the car wash blues.

Well, I should be sittin' in an air conditioned office in a swivel chair

Talkin' some trash to the secretaries,

Sayin', "Here, now mam-ma, come on over here."

Instead, I'm stuck here rubbin' these fenders with a rag

And walkin' home in soggy old shoes

With them steadily depressin', low down mind messin'

Workin' at the car wash blues.

You know a man of my ability,

He should be smokin' on a big cigar.

But till I get myself straight I guess I'll just have to wait

In my rubber suit a-rubbin' these cars.

Well, all I can do is a-shake my head

You might not believe that it's true,

For workin' at this end of Niagara Falls

Is an undiscovered Howard Hughes.

So baby, don't expect to see me

With no double martini in any high-brow society news,

'Cause I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin',

Workin' at the car wash blues.

(Lead break)

So, baby, don't expect to see me

With no double martini in any high-brow society news,

'Cause I got them steadily depressin', low down mind messin',

Workin' at the car wash blues.

You are thinking about the good old days....

Old Days-Chicago

Old days

Good times I remember

Fun days

Filled with simple pleasures

Drive-in movies

Comic books and blue jeans

Howdy doody

Baseball cards and birthdays

Take me back

To a world gone away

Memories

Seem like yesterday

Old days

Good times I remember

Gold days

Days Ill always treasure

Funny faces

Full of love and laughter

Funny places

Summer nights and streetcars

Take me back

To a world gone away

Boyhood memories

Seem like yesterday

Old days - in my mind and in my heart to stay

Old days - darkened dreams of good times gone away

Old days - days of love and feeling fancy free

Old days - days of magic still so close to me

Old days - in my mind and in my heart to stay

Old days - darkened dreams of good times gone away

Old days - days of love and feeling fancy free

Old days - days of magic still so close to me

You're thinking about those old songs.

AN OLD FASHIONED LOVE SONG

Three Dog Night

Just an old fashioned love song

Playing on the radio

And wrapped around the music

is the sound of someone promising they'll never go.

You'll swear you've heard it before

As it slowly rambles on and on.

No need in bringing em back

Cause they've never really gone.

Just an old fashioned love song

Coming down in three part harmony.

Just an old fashioned love song

One I'm sure they wrote for you and me,

To weave our dreams upon and

Listen to each evening when the light are low.

To underscore our love affair

With tenderness and feeling

That we've come to know.

You'll swear you've heard it before

As it slowly rambles on and on.

No need in bringing em back

Cause they've never really gone.

Just an old fashioned love song

Coming down in three part harmony.

Just an old fashioned love song

One I'm sure they wrote for you and me.

You need to give some good advice to a friend that's going through a rough time....

Lean On Me-Bill Withers

Sometimes in our lives we all have pain

We all have sorrow

But if we are wise

We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong

And I'll be your friend

I'll help you carry on

For it won't be long

'Til I'm gonna need

Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride

If I have things you need to borrow

For no one can fill those of your needs

That you don't let show

Lean on me, when you're not strong

And I'll be your friend

I'll help you carry on

For it won't be long

'Til I'm gonna need

Somebody to lean on

If there is a load you have to bear

That you can't carry

I'm right up the road

I'll share your load

If you just call me

So just call on me brother, when you need a hand

We all need somebody to lean on

I just might have a problem that you'd understand

We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me when you're not strong

And I'll be your friend

I'll help you carry on

For it won't be long

Till I'm gonna need

Somebody to lean on

Lean on me...

You want to be there for a friend in need.

My Friends - Red Hot Chili Peppers

My friends are so depressed

I feel the question of your loneliness

Confide..., 'cause I'll be on your side

You know I will, you know I will

ex-girlfriend called me up

Alone and desperate on the prison phone

They want... to give her 7 years

For being sad

I love all of you

Hurt by the cold

So hard and lonely too

When you don't know yourself

My friends are so distressed

And standing on the brink of emptiness

No words... I know of to express

This emptiness

I love all of you

Hurt by the cold

So hard and lonely too

When you don't know yourself

Imagine me taught by tragedy

Release is peace

I heard a little girl

And what she said was something beautiful

To give... your love no matter what

Is what she said

I love all of you

Hurt by the cold

So hard and lonely too

When you don't know yourself

TV, radio and the internet have numbed your brain

Queen - Radio Ga Ga

I'd sit alone and watch your light

My only friend through teenage nights

And everything I had to know

I heard it on my radio

Radio

You gave them all those old time stars

Through wars of worlds -- invaded by Mars

You made 'em laugh -- you made 'em cry

You made us feel like we could fly

So don't become some background noise

A backdrop for the girls and boys

Who just don't know or just don't care

And just complain when you're not there

You had your time, you had the power

You've yet to have your finest hour

Radio

All we hear is Radio ga ga

Radio goo goo

Radio ga ga

All we hear is Radio ga ga

Radio blah blah

Radio what's new?

Radio, someone still loves you!

We watch the shows -- we watch the stars

On videos for hours and hours

We hardly need to use our ears

How music changes through the years

Let's hope you never leave old friend

Like all good things on you we depend

So stick around cos we might miss you

When we grow tired of all this visual

You had your time, you had the power

You've yet to have your finest hour

Radio -- Radio

All we hear is Radio ga ga

Radio goo goo

Radio ga ga

All we hear is Radio ga ga

Radio goo goo

Radio ga ga

All we hear is Radio ga ga

Radio blah blah

Radio what's new?

Radio, someone still loves you!

You had your time, you had the power

You've yet to have your finest hour

Radio

All we hear is Radio ga ga

Radio goo goo

Radio ga ga

All we hear is Radio ga ga

Radio blah blah

Radio what's new?

Radio, someone still loves you!

Loves you

The Notsensibles - "I Make A Balls Of Everything I Do"

Maybe one day I’ll get something right

Maybe one day I’ll put up a decent fight

Somehow that day seems oh so far away

Too far for my failing sight

Fortunes may change I don’t know

Years and time just pass me by so slow

One day I’ll break out... be leader of the world

Just one thing stops that being true

I make a balls of everything I do

A balls of everything I do

I’ve even tried to shoot myself but I just can’t get it right

A balls of everything I do

Fortunes may change well I don’t know

Years and time just pass me by so slow

One day I’ll break out I’ll be leader of the world

Just one thing stops that being true

I make a balls of everything I do

A balls of everything I do

I’ve even tried to drown myself but I just can’t get it right

A balls of everything I do

Balls of everything I do

I make a balls of everything I do

I’ve even tried to hang myself but I just can’t get it right

A balls of everything I do

Balls of everything I do

I make a balls of everything I do

I’ve even tried to gas myself but I just can’t get it right

A balls of everything I do

I make a balls of everything I do

Don't you?

Muse - Hysteria

it's bugging me, grating me

and twisting me around

yeah I'm endlessly caving in

and turning inside out

'cause I want it now

I want it now

give me your heart and your soul

and I'm breaking out

I'm breaking out

last chance to lose control

yeah it's holding me, morphing me

and forcing me to strive

to be endlessly cold within

and dreaming I'm alive

'cause I want it now

I want it now

give me your heart and your soul

I'm not breaking down

I'm breaking out

last chance to lose control

and I want you now

I want you now

I feel my heart implode

and I'm breaking out

escaping now

feeling my faith erode

"Can't Find My Way Home" - Blind Faith

"Come down off your throne

And leave your body alone

Somebody must change

You are the reason I've been waiting so long

Somebody holds the key

Well I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time

Well I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

Come down on your own

And leave your money at home

Somebody must change

You are the reason I've been wating all these years

Somebody holds the key

I'm near the end and I just ain't got the time

Oh and I'm wasted and I can't find my way home

But I can't find my way home

But I can't find my way home

But I can't find my way home

But I can't find my way home

Still I can't find my way home

And I ain't done nothing wrong

But I can't find my way home"

You feel you are getting on in age.

Yesterday When I Was Young-Roy Clark

Yesterday, when I was young,

The taste of life was sweet, as rain upon my tongue,

I teased at life, as if it were a foolish game,

The way the evening breeze may tease a candle flame

The thousand dreams I dreamed, the splendid things I planned,

I always built, alas, on weak and shifting sand,

I lived by night, and shunned the naked light of day,

And only now, I see, how the years ran away

Yesterday, when I was young,

So many happy songs were waiting to be sung,

So many wild pleasures lay in store for me,

And so much pain, my dazzled eyes refused to see

I ran so fast that time, and youth at last ran out,

I never stopped to think, what life, was all about,

And every conversation, I can now recall,

Concerned itself with me, and nothing else at all

Yesterday, the moon was blue,

And every crazy day, brought something new to do,

I used my magic age, as if it were a wand,

And never saw the worst, and the emptiness beyond

The game of love I played, with arrogance and pride,

And every flame I lit, too quickly, quickly died,

The friends I made, all seemed somehow to drift away,

And only I am left, on stage to end the play

There are so many songs in me, that won't be sung,

I feel the bitter taste, of tears upon my tongue,

The time has come for me to pay,

For yesterday, when I was young

Dandelion - Rolling Stones

Prince or pauper, beggar man or thing

Play the game with ev'ry flow'r you bring

Dandelion don't tell no lies

Dandelion will make you wise

Tell me if she laughs or cries

Blow away dandelion

One o'clock, two o'clock, three o'clock, four o'clock chimes

Dandelions don't care about the time

Dandelion don't tell no lies

Dandelion will make you wise

Tell me if she laughs or cries

Blow away dandelion, blow away dandelion

Tho' you're older now its just the same

You can play this dandelion game

Well, you know you should wear it

Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailors lives

Rich man, poor man, beautiful, daughters wives

Dandelion don't tell no lies

Dandelion will make you wise

Tell me if she laughs or cries

Blow away dandelion, blow away dandelion

Little girls, and boys come out to play

Bring your dandelions to blow away

Dandelion don't tell no lies

Dandelion will make you wise

Tell me if she laughs or cries

Blow away dandelion, blow away dandelion

You bump into an old buddy and talk about the past.

Glory Days

Bruce Springsteen

I had a friend was a big baseball player

back in high school

He could throw that speedball by you

Make you look like a fool boy

Saw him the other night at this roadside bar

I was walking in, he was walking out

We went back inside sat down had a few drinks

but all he kept talking about was

Chorus:

Glory days well they'll pass you by

Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye

Glory days, glory days

Well there's a girl that lives up the block

back in school she could turn all the boy's heads

Sometimes on a Friday I'll stop by

and have a few drinks after she put her kids to bed

Her and her husband Bobby well they split up

I guess it's two years gone by now

We just sit around talking about the old times,

she says when she feels like crying

she starts laughing thinking about

Chorus

My old man worked 20 years on the line

and they let him go

Now everywhere he goes out looking for work

they just tell him that he's too old

I was 9 nine years old and he was working at the

Metuchen Ford plant assembly line

Now he just sits on a stool down at the Legion hall

but I can tell what's on his mind

Glory days yeah goin back

Glory days aw he ain't never had

Glory days, glory days

Now I think I'm going down to the well tonight

and I'm going to drink till I get my fill

And I hope when I get old I don't sit around thinking about it

but I probably will

Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture

a little of the glory of, well time slips away

and leaves you with nothing mister but

boring stories of glory days

Chorus (repeat twice)

You think of your first love.

I've often thought of songs that would be perfect for moments in your life, big events or just everyday stuff....

So I'll start it off by say a moment in my life and then a song that would go perfect for it, just like a soundtrack....

Geddit? Of course you do :thumbsup:

Breaking up from a long term relationship?

How is this a 'game ' per se ? It's a nice idea but would likely be better suited to Random Thoughts .

You respond to a challenge (finding a song whose lyrics provide a suitable soundtrack to a suggested scenario), then you set a challenge for others, (to find a song suitable for a scenario of your own suggestion)and it goes on in sequence like that. The fun is in thinking of the suitable soundtrack song, then setting a new scenario. Of course it's a game, ya dork! :rolleyes:
