    pining...that sounds so horrible for someone to have to deal with. time is cruel and life goes on,,though love can linger..

    'do you have to let it linger..?'

    me thinks of bogie every time that song comes on,,'da da da...'
    i didn't know the rest of the lyrics until you mentioned your signature. that could be depressing. but the music is upbeat. i hope it's healing for bogie.. <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

    "You know she thrills me with all her charms
    When I'm wrapped up in my baby's arms.
    My little angel gives me everything
    I know someday that she'll wear my ring.
    So don't bother me 'cause I got no time,
    On my way to see that girl of mine.
    Nothing else matters in the whole wide world
    When you're in love, with a Jersey Girl
    Sing sha-la, la la la la......I'm in love with a Jersey girl."
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    you so crazy!


    "..and I laughed
    like I always do.
    And I cried
    like I cried for you.
    And balloon man
    blew up, in my hand.

    ..and it rained
    like a slow divorce.
    And I wished
    I could ride a horse..
    and balloon man blew up
    in my hand."

    "I heard there was a secret chord
    That David played and it pleased the Lord
    But you don't really care for music do you?
    It goes like this; the fourth the fifth
    A minor fall and a major lift.
    The baffled king composing hallelujah."

    Written by Cohen,
    Sung best by Cale.

    "Your faith was strong but you needed proof.
    You saw her bathing on the roof;
    Her beauty & the moonlight overthrew you.
    She tied you to a kitchen chair
    she broke your thorns, she cut your hair,
    and from your lips she drew the Hallelujah"
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    that reminds me of that new wave song,

    "I'm still in love
    with you Delila.
    De-li-la
    De-li-la
    Like Romeo and Juliet
    Samson and Delila
    on fire.."


    I have to get this cd:

    "I was only dreaming
    I was only trying to catch
    your eye.
    I was only wishing you would
    notice me.
    Instead you said
    goodbye.."

    "Baby I've been here before.
    I know this room, I've walked this floor.
    I used to live alone before I knew you.
    I've seen your flag on the marble arch
    but love is not a victory march,
    It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

    There was a time you let me know
    What's really going on below.
    But now you never show it to me, do you?
    I remember when I moved in you
    And the holy dove was moving too
    And every breath we drew was Hallelujah.

    Maybe there's a God above
    But all I ever learned from love
    Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you.
    And it's not a complaint that you hear tonight
    It's not somebody who's seen the light.
    It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah."

    Thought I'd better finish that off before it drags out too long.
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    "Hallelujah" could never drag out too long. <img src="smile.gif" border="0"> Leonard Cohen is another of my songwriter crushes. I'm pleased that Shrek is bringing "Hallelujah" back into the public eye.

    Does Shrek have Leonard Cohen on the soundtrack?


    Missed the 80s by a year, but still. Now that I'm a convicted stalker I can no longer resist the temptation of Nick Cave lyrics. I held out as long as I could.

    "We talk about it all night long
    We define our moral ground
    But when I crawl into your arms
    Everything comes tumbling down

    Come sail your ships around me
    And burn your bridges down
    We make a little history, baby
    Every time you come around

    Come loose your dogs upon me
    And let your hair hang down.
    You are a little mystery to me
    Every time you come around"
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    Yes! "Hallelujah" is in the movie... in the movie, they use a heartrending cover by John Cale, (available on the early 90s Cohen tribute album "I'm Your Fan") but the soundtrack CD has a different version. Quite a disappointment to many would-be soundtrack buyers.

    I've loved Leonard Cohen's songs since I was a kid... my mom was always playing Judy Collins albums. I didn't realize until much later that the only songs of hers I truly fell in love with were all written by L.C. *g*

    I agree, the Cale version is staggering! It's also on the soundtrack to Basquiat along with some other marvellous things (Tom Waits, PIL, David Bowie, Pogues, etc.).

    I loved James' version of So Long, Marianne on I'm Your Fan. They threw in such excellent lyrical additions.

    "...All those fights, with that big kitchen knife,
    All the lies, and the hate that you spout.
    All those long, long furious nights
    All those long, long furious nights

    ...And the crimes we committed at night
    All the crimes we committed at night..."

    Ah, Bogie must stop. I'm working myself into a sweat here at the office (doesn't look too good). <img src="rolleyes.gif" border="0">
    Boom! Boom!

    I think "the crimes we committed at night" were before the fights started. That's the way it sounds to me anyway <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

    I think they were adjusting the song a little to show a more intense relationship than the one L.C. was writing about. But man does it sound good (the song, not the fights) <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    I hope that my contribution fits right in here...

    When it comes to music which is sad, driving and somehow uplifting at once, I highly recommend DEINE LAKAIEN.
    Those Germans are put in the "Gothic" drawer, but they manage to steer clear of all the clichés and routines which are generally linked to it.
    Get an album of them - you won´t regret it!
    Some recommendations: 1st Album (1986), Dark Star (1991), Kasmodiah (1999)

    Here´s one of my favourite songs...

    Lonely

    Lonely, where should I be if this is not my land
    slowly, life is running through my fingers like sand
    call me, and I'll be wherever you are
    lonely, and the day hides a falling star

    And I tried so hard, yes I tried to get out
    but the fear kept on strangling my will
    And I tried so hard, yes I tried to get out
    but the chains they were harder than steel

    Lonely, when the bird calls the break of dawn
    Lonely, when nightfall takes lovers in it's arms

    Lonely, when meadows outside grow green
    falling, and the waters take what has been
    flowing, show me a place where I can fall asleep
    lonely, and the oceans are vast and deep

    And I tried so hard...

    Thumbs up

    I can only encourage you to look for Deine Lakaien-outputs! Or search for the respective .mp3-files, as I don´t know if they ever were released outside Germany.

    A good source might be A DIFFERENT DRUM, they feature lots of synth and indie stuff from Europe.

    If you want, I might post another lyric of them here...they´re all just great!

    I know it's not from the 80s but:

    "The darkness must flow
    Down the river of night's dreaming.
    Flow Morpheus, flow, let the sun
    And light come streaming, into my life.
    Into my life.

    There's a light - over at the Frankenstein Place.
    There's a light - burning in the fireplace.
    There's a light, a light
    In the darkness, of everybody's life."
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!

    Found another lyric from Deine Lakaien (will feed my CD changer with that stuff again...)

    Away

    Silent groaning on the floor
    Slight clicking out the light
    Gentle squeaking of the door
    I am off in the night

    Away away
    Nothing's left to say
    I am far away

    Kicking empty cans
    Just around the corner
    Maybe you look on me
    As a lonesome mourner
    While I'm drifting off
    Along distant shores
    Think I'm nothing but this tin
    Because I don't feel anymore

    Was it meant for me
    When you soared from that pole
    Can you see what I can't see
    A resting place for my soul

    Away away
    Nothing's left to say
    I am far away

    Kicking empty cans
    Just around the corner
    Maybe you look on me
    As a lonesome mourner
    While I'm drifting off
    Along distant shores
    Think I'm nothing but this tin
    Because I don't feel anymore

    Green feather on the ground
    He's been watching you
    Proclamation all around:
    "Only passing through!"

    Away away
    Nothing's left to say
    I am far away

    Far away from now
    Sorrows and grief
    Way up in the sky
    You give me relief
    Like the way you are floating
    Conquers gravitation
    Makes me overcome
    This leaden stagnation
    Kicking empty cans
    Just around the corner
    Maybe you look on me
    As a lonesome mourner
    While I'm drifting off
    Along distant shores
    Think I'm nothing but this tin
    because I don't feel anymore

    And if you could only listen to the accompanying tune...this is what I call really deep and meaningful music...

    "...away in dreams..."

    "Now your eyes are like torches,
    Your presence is bliss.
    I never knew time
    Could speed and zip like this.

    The touch of your flesh
    Is tough to resist.
    Planets collide, collide, collide
    At the smack of your kiss."
    Boom! Boom!
    Waaahahahahaha!
