    One more...

    Is This It?
    by The Strokes


    Can't you see I'm trying?
    I don't even like it. I just lied to
    Get to your apartment, now I'm staying
    Here just for a while
    I can't think 'cause I'm just way too tired

    Is this it?
    Is this it?
    Is this... it?

    Said they'd give you anything you ever wanted
    When they lied, I knew it was just stable children
    Trying hard not to realize I was sitting right behind them

    Oh dear, can't you see? It's them it's not me
    We're not enemies; We just disagree
    If I was like them all pissed in this bar
    He changes his mind, says I went too far
    We all disagree
    I think we should disagree, yeah

    Is this it
    Is this it
    Is this it

    Can't you see I'm trying?
    I don't even like it. I just lied to
    Get to your apartment, now I'm staying
    Here just for a while
    I can't think 'cause I'm just way too tired

    Baseball's Greatest Hits (1989) has this to say about Terry Cashman's Talkin' Baseball series:

    "'WILLIE, MICKEY & THE DUKE' is one of 30 different versions of 'TALKIN' BASEBALL' recorded by balladeer Terry Cashman. There's a version for every major leage team except Seattle, and this baseball 'anthem' can be can be heard on radio, television, and at ballparks from coast to coast. Cashman originally sang doo wop with The Chevrons in the '50s, and wrote 'Sunday Will Never Be the Same' for Spanky and Our Gang in the '60s. In the '70s Terry produced Jim Croce and also had a hit himself with Cashman & West ('American City Suite').
    "'Willie, Mickey & The Duke' has sold around 500,000 copies. By the way, Terry's favorite baseball song is 'Van Lingo Mungo,' also included in this compilation."

    I'm sure that the numbers there have changed in the intervening fourteen years. But the basic concepts should still hold true. For those interested, here are the lyrics:

    Willie, Mickey & The Duke (Talkin' Baseball)
    Terry Cashman
    , 1981

    The whiz kids had won it,
    Bobby Thomson had done it,
    And Yogi read the comics all the while.
    Rock 'n' roll was being born,
    Marijuana, we would scorn,
    So down on the corner,
    The national past-time went on trial.

    Refrain:
    We're talkin' baseball!
    Kluzuski, Campanella.
    Talkin' baseball!
    The Man and Bobby Feller.
    The Scooter, the Barber, and the Newc,
    They knew them all from Boston to Dubuque.
    Especially Willie, Mickey, and the Duke.

    Well, Casey was winning,
    Hank Aaron was beginning,
    One Robbie going out, one coming in.
    Kiner and Midget Gaedel,
    The Thumper and Mel Parnell,
    And Ike was the only one winning down in Washington.

    Refrain:

    Now my old friend, The Bachelor,
    I wonder how he did.
    Well, he swore he was the Oklahoma Kid.
    And Cookie played hooky,
    To go and see the Duke.
    And me, I always loved Willie Mays,
    Man, those were the days!

    Refrain:

    Well, now it's the 80's,
    And Brett is the greatest,
    And Bobby Bonds can play for everyone.
    Rose is at the Vet,
    And Rusty again is a Met,
    And Alexander's pitchin' baseballs in Washington.

    I'm talkin' baseball!
    Like Reggie, Quisenberry.
    Talkin' baseball!
    Carew and Gaylord Perry,
    Seaver, Tommy John and Vida Blue,
    If Cooperstown is calling, it's no fluke.
    They'll be with Willie, Mickey, and the Duke.
    Willie, Mickey, and the Duke. (Say hey, say hey, say hey)
    It was Willie, Mickey and the Duke (Say hey, say hey, say hey)
    I'm talkin' Willie, Mickey and the Duke (Say hey, say hey, say hey)

    Another classic by the dynamic duo:

    Mano a Mano
    Daryl Hall and John Oates
    (1981)

    See a lot of people walking around and around
    terra firma turned them upside down
    too scared to reach out maybe afraid of what they'll find
    but a hand stuck in a pocket comes up empty everytime
    Now you better believe the writing on the wall
    all for one one for all
    woman to woman and man to man
    face to face heart to heart hand to hand

    Mano a Mano
    Hand to Hand
    Mano a Mano

    See a lot of people fighting for the left or the right
    fighting people see black or white
    you'd like to go your way sure I'd like to go mine
    but we're all in this together running out of time
    Woman to woman and man to man
    heart to heart and hand to hand
    set an example for all the little boys and girls
    for the hand that rocks the cradle can rule the world

    Mano a Mano
    Hand to Hand
    Mano a Mano

    Sad but True Lyrics:

    Hey
    I?m your life
    I?m the one who takes you there
    Hey
    I?m your life
    I?m the one who cares
    They
    They betray
    I?m your only true friend now
    They
    They?ll betray
    I?m forever there

    I?m your dream, make you real
    I?m your eyes when you must steal
    I?m your pain when you can?t feel
    sad but true

    I?m your dream, mind astray
    I?m your eyes while you?re away
    i?m your pain while you repay
    you know it?s sad but true

    You
    You?re my mask
    You?re my cover, my shelter
    You
    You?re my mask
    You?re the one who?s blamed
    Do
    Do my work
    Do my dirty work, scapegoat
    Do
    Do my deeds
    For you?re the one who?s shamed

    I?m your dream, make you real
    I?m your eyes when you must steal
    I?m your pain when you can?t feel
    sad but true

    I?m your dream, mind astray
    I?m your eyes while you?re away
    I?m your pain while you repay
    you know it?s sad but true

    Hate
    I?m your hate
    I?m your hate when you want love
    Pay
    Pay the price
    Pay, for nothing?s fair

    Hey
    I?m your life
    I?m the one who took you here
    Hey
    I?m your life
    And I no longer care

    I?m your dream, make you real
    i?m your eyes when you must steal
    I?m your pain when you can?t feel
    sad but true

    I?m your truth, telling lies
    I?m your reasoned alibis
    I?m inside open your eyes
    I?m you

    sad but true

    Sober
    by Tool

    there?s a shadow just behind me.
    shrouding every step i take.
    making every promise empty.
    pointing every finger at me.
    waiting like a stalking butler.
    who upon the finger rests.
    murder now the path called must we.
    just because the son has come.

    jesus, won?t you %$&#ing whistle something but the past is done? (2x)

    why can?t we not be sober?
    i just want to start this over.
    why can?t we drink forever?
    i just want to start this over.

    i am just a worthless liar.
    i am just an imbecile.
    i will only complicate you.
    trust in me and fall as well.
    i will find a center in you.
    i will chew it up and leave.
    i will work to elevate you
    just enough to bring you down.

    mother mary, won?t you whisper something but what's past is done. (2x)

    why can?t we not be sober?
    i just want to start this over.
    why can?t we sleep forever?
    i just want to start this over.

    i am just a worthless liar.
    i am just an imbecile.
    i will only complicate you.
    trust in me and fall as well.
    i will find a center in you.
    i will chew it up and leave.
    trust me. trust me. trust me. trust me. trust me.

    why can?t we not be sober?
    i just want to start things over.
    why can?t we sleep forever?
    i just want to start this over.

    i want what i want...
    i want what i want...
    i want what i want...
    i want what i want...

    Cruel to Be Kind
    the Letters to Cleo version from
    1O THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU.


    Oh I can't take another heartache
    Though you say you're my friend
    I'm at my wits end
    You say your love is bonafide
    But that don't coincide
    With the things that you do

    And when I ask you to be nice
    You say you gotta be
    Cruel to be kind, in the right measure
    Cruel to be kind, it's a very good sign
    Cruel to be kind, means that I love you
    Baby, you gotta be cruel to be kind

    Well I do my best to understand, dear
    But you still mystify, and I wanna know why
    I pick myself up off the ground
    To have you knock me back down
    Again and again

    And when I ask you to explain
    You say you gotta be
    Cruel to be kind, in the right measure
    Cruel to be kind, it's a very good sign
    Cruel to be kind, means that I love you
    Baby, you gotta be cruel to be kind

    Well I do my best to understand dear
    But you still mystify, and I wanna know why
    I pick myself up off the ground
    To have you knock me back down
    Again and again

    And when I ask you to explain
    You say you gotta be
    Cruel to be kind, in the right measure
    Cruel to be kind, it's a very good sign
    Cruel to be kind, means that I love you
    Baby, you gotta be cruel to be kind


    can't remember if chewie posted this one already or not...
    Careless Whisper
    by Wham


    Time can never mend
    The careless whispers of a good friend
    To the heart and mind
    Ignorance is kind
    There's no comfort in the truth
    Pain is all you'll find

    Should've known better, oh yeah...
    Oh oh oh

    I feel so unsure
    As I take your hand and lead you to the dance floor
    As the music dies, something in your eyes
    Calls to mind the silver screen
    And all its sad good-byes

    I'm never gonna dance again
    Guilty feet have got no rhythm
    Though it's easy to pretend
    I know you're not a fool
    Should've known better than to cheat a friend
    And waste the chance that I've been given
    So I'm never gonna dance again
    The way I danced with you

    Time can never mend
    The careless whispers of a good friend
    To the heart and mind
    Ignorance is kind
    There's no comfort in the truth
    Pain is all you'll find

    I'm never gonna dance again
    Guilty feet have got no rhythm
    Though it's easy to pretend
    I know you're not a fool
    Should've known better than to cheat a friend
    And waste the chance that I've been given
    So I'm never gonna dance again
    The way I danced with you

    Never without your love

    Tonight the music seems so loud
    I wish that we could lose this crowd
    Maybe it's better this way
    We'd hurt each other with the things we'd want to say
    We could have been so good together
    We could have lived this dance forever
    But now who's gonna dance with me?
    Please stay

    And I'm never gonna dance again
    Guilty feet have got no rhythm
    Though it's easy to pretend
    I know you're not a fool
    Should've know better than to cheat a friend
    And waste the chance that I've been given
    So I'm never gonna dance again
    The way I danced with you

    (Now that you're gone) Now that you're gone
    (Now that you're gone) What I did so wrong, so wrong
    That you had to leave me alone

    Hope For Love
    Chicago
    (1976)

    Here I go again
    Why does the ghost of love still haunt me
    It's all been cried about before
    It's all been cried about before
    Yes, it's all been cried about before

    Still it's everywhere
    Is it crying to be heard
    Don't you think you've had your say
    Don't you think you've had your say
    Yes, don't you think you've seen your day

    I don't know
    No I don't
    Don't I know
    I don't know
    Don't I know
    No I don't
    I don't know

    Not knowing if it's love
    Is better than no thoughts of love at all
    But it's been cried about before
    I guess I'll cry for it some more
    It's just the hope for love once more
    It's just the hope for love once more

    Ahm I am making this officially my theme song. :p
    I am in love with this song. sigh. I absolutely adore it. It?s the ending theme song to Blue Gender. I am posting the shorter english version first, then the longer original version. (The english version is the one they play on adult swim.)

    Love Taught Me (Blue Gender ending theme)
    Even if the days
    When I smiled a lot
    Should turn out
    To be nothing but a lovely dream
    That would be alright with me
    If that's all it means
    My minds unrest
    Struggling with me
    Recalling the past
    Who I could be
    Gotta rise and be strong
    Gotta be tough, but not lose the person I am
    Two lives I have
    One life I leave
    One life I dream
    In dreams I remember, the better in me
    Vision don't let me down
    I'm depending on you
    Carry me through
    When I see... reality


    Original Version:
    Ai ga Oshiete Kureta
    By Houko Kuwashima


    Hohoemi kasaneta hibi ga maboroshi ni natte mo
    Watashi wa kitto mayowanai
    Kono mune tashika ni nokoru yasashisa to itami wo
    Dakishimete mata ikiru dake

    Mirai ni yuku tame ni Otona ni naru tame ni
    Mogaite kita omoide wo kokoro de ima wa kurikaesu
    Hitotsu no toki wo iki Futatsu no yume erabi
    So***** ai ga oshiete kureta yo ne Hito wo omou imi

    Sabishisa wakeau you ni hajimatta koi demo
    Shiawase datte Itsu datte

    Nando mo tachidomari Nando mo furimuite
    Anata ga mou soba ni inai koto ni
    Sotto kizuku kedo
    Afureru setsunasa mo deaeta ureshisa mo
    Subete ai ga oshiete kureta kara aruki-dasu tame ni

    Jibun no koto no you ni daiji ni omoeru hito ga
    Ita koto wo tada hokori e to kaete

    Mirai ni yuku tame ni Otona ni naru tame ni
    Mogaite kita omoide wo kokoro de ima wa kurikaesu
    Hitotsu no toki wo iki Futatsu no yume erabi
    So***** ai ga oshiete kureta yo ne Hito wo omou imi

    I'm on a total George Benson kick right now. Here's his take on a couple of different kinds of love....

    The Greatest Love of All
    George Benson


    I believe the children are our future
    Teach them well and let them lead the way
    Show them all the beauty they possess inside
    Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
    Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be
    Everybody is searching for a hero
    People need someone to look up to
    I never found anyone to fulfill my needs
    A lonely place to be
    So I learned to depend on me

    Chorus:
    I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone's shadows
    If I fail, if I succeed
    At least I live as I believe
    No matter what they take from me
    They can't take away my dignity
    Because the greatest love of all
    Is happening to me
    I found the greatest love of all
    Inside of me
    The greatest love of all
    Is easy to achieve
    Learning to love yourself
    It is the greatest love of all

    I believe the children are our future
    Teach them well and let them lead the way
    Show them all the beauty they possess inside
    Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
    Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be

    Chorus

    And if by chance, that special place
    That you've been dreaming of
    Leads you to a lonely place
    Find your strength in love




    Give Me the Night
    George Benson


    Whenever dark has fallen
    You know the spirit of the party
    Starts to come alive
    Until the day is dawning
    You can throw out all your blues
    And hit the city lights
    'Cause there's music in the air
    And lots of loving everywhere
    So gimme the night
    Gimme the night

    You need the evening action,
    A place to dine, a glass of wine,
    A little late romance
    It's a chain reaction
    You'll see the people of the world
    Coming out to dance
    'Cause there's music in the air
    And lots of loving everywhere
    So gimme the night
    Gimme the night

    So come on out tonight
    And we'll lead the others
    On a ride through paradise
    And if you feel all right
    Then we can be lovers 'cause I see that
    Starlight look in your eyes
    Don't you know we can fly?
    Just gimme the night
    Gimme the night

    And if we stay together,
    We'll feel the rhythm of the evening
    Taking us up high
    Never mind the weather
    We'll be dancing in the street
    Until the morning light
    'Cause there's music in the air
    And lots of loving everywhere
    So gimme the night
    Gimme the night...

    Have to put these up, I saw them on I love the 80s:

    Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam featuring Full Force
    All Cried Out


    All alone on a Sunday morning
    Outside I see the rain is falling
    Inside I'm slowly dying
    But the rain will hide my crying

    And you, don't you know my tears will burn the pillow
    Set this place on fire 'cause I'm tired of your lies
    All I needed was a simple "Hello"
    But the traffic was so noisy that you could not hear my cry

    Ah, I gave you my love in vain
    My body never knew such pleasure
    My heart never knew such pain
    And you, you leave me so confused
    Now I'm all cried out over you

    Oh, you. All over you, oooh.

    Never wanted to see things you way
    I had to go astray, oh, why was I such a fool?
    Now I see that the grass is greener [why oh why]
    Is it too late for me to find my way home,
    How could I be so wrong? [Leavin' me all alone]

    Don't you know the heart will cause an inferno
    Romance up in flames, why should I take the blame
    You were the one who left me neglected [I'm so sorry]
    Apology not accepted, add me to the broken hearts you collected

    Ah, I gave you all of me [gave me all of you]
    How was I to know you would weaken so easily
    Ah, I don't what to do
    I'm all cried out [I'm all] over you [I'm cried out too]

    [Whoa, whoa...]

    Ah, I gave you my love in vain
    My body never knew such pleasure
    My heart never knew such pain
    And you [I left you so confused, now I'm all cried out]
    Now I'm all cried out....over you....


    Lost in Emotion
    Hit the beat now
    lost in emotion.
    Some guys will promise you a marriage made in heaven

    But I'm gonna stick to my guns.
    Like waiting for that love that I might be getting

    Mv dreams have yet begun.
    oh baby
    am I a fool 'cause I don't know iust how you feel?
    And is my love for you? Oh
    I can't conceal.

    Oh
    I'm lost in emotion

    Telling you things you really shouldn't know.
    Oh
    baby
    I'm lost in emotion

    Am I a fool? At least my friends think so.
    Qu-sera
    que-sera. Baby
    whatever will be? Que-sera
    que-sera.

    Truly you and me.
    Just how true are the rumors I am hearing
    about the crash you have on me?
    Oh baby
    I'm blind 'cause I just don't see it

    But I wanna believe what they see.
    I find myself telling you things
    I don't even tell my best friend.
    I keep showing emotions not knowing

    just where it all stands for us.
    From time to time I wonder what I am in your heart

    And even though I don't live there yet
    I'm afraid it will be cold and dark.

    I'm lost in emotion
    . ..

    Baby
    am I a fool 'cavse I don't know just how you feel?
    And is my love for you? Oh
    I can't conceal.
    Hit the beat now - with my feeling - I hit the ceiling -
    With big emotions - I can't be dealing - I wanna be with you -
    But I don't know how - in my heart
    baby

    I can feel the beat now.
    lost in emotion
    lost in emotion
    lost in emotion.
    Lost - my baby you know that I'm lost - my baby -
    Lost in emotion - my baby - lost in emotion -
    lost in emotion - lost.

    Can you feel the Beat
    Chorus:
    Can you feel the beat within my heart
    Can you see my love shine through the dark
    Can you see that you must be a part of that beat in my heart

    After all that we've been through
    I just can't seem to face the fact that boy I'm losing you
    I threw away your ties through those venetian blinds
    I looked and saw my heart just over ruled my mind
    And I tried not to let it show
    Now I don't know what to do
    I tell myself I'm lying
    So let's just not let it go
    My heart does double beats for you
    Now you know my love won't grow cold
    Oh this love will turn to gold if we stay in love
    Oh, my love

    Chorus

    It's like trying to touch the sky but overlook the sun
    That's why reality keeps telling me that you're the one
    Just the very thought of you gets me aroused
    And I can feel my heart beat right through my blouse
    And darling I tried not to show
    Now I don't know what to do
    I tell myself that I'm lying
    So let's just not let it go
    My heart does double beats for yo

    Head to Toe
    by Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam


    Head to toe
    I know

    Today started with a crazy kiss
    On our way home
    We were in for a surprise
    Who would have known

    Who would have thought that we would become lovers
    As friends we were so, so tight
    Can't help myself, you make me feel so right
    I got to, got to, got to tell you, darlin'

    Ooh, baby, I think I love you
    From head to toe
    Ooh, baby, I think I love you
    From head to toe

    I think I love you from head to toe
    I know

    Here today, gone tomorrow
    It's possible, but I doubt it
    His kiss is credit in the bank of love
    I never leave home without it

    He's different from any boy I know
    Body supreme
    Bedroom eyes, head back to the side
    Please don't be so mean

    14 karat love, you are my jewel of the Nile
    When we make love diamonds are forever
    Top to bottom I love you, I will leave you never
    I got to, got to, got to tell you, darlin'

    Ooh, baby, I think I love you
    From head to toe
    Ooh, baby, I've got to kiss you
    From head to toe

    Ooh, baby, I think I love you
    You got to know
    Ooh, baby, I think I love you
    From head to toe

    I think I love you from head to toe
    You can't hurry love, you got to take it slow
    But my angel, you forget your wings tonight [Heaven up above]
    Baby, you got the love

    14 karat love, you are my jewel of the Nile
    When we make love diamonds are forever
    Top to bottom I love you, I will leave you never
    I got to, got to, got to tell you, darlin'

    Ooh, baby, I think I love you
    From head to toe
    Ooh, baby, I want to kiss you
    From head to toe

    Ooh, baby, I think I love you
    You got to know
    Ooh, baby, I think I love you
    From head to toe

    I think I love you from head to toe
    I know

    Ooh, baby, I want to kiss you
    From head to toe
    Ooh, baby, I think I love you
    You got to know

    Ooh, baby, I think I love you
    From head to toe

    well after a month or so of forgetting about them, i'm in a squirrel nut zippers state of mind again (they're a band). so i present you with some of their trademark spiffy lyrics. ;)

    the suits are picking up the bill (one of those songs i can't help putting on repeat)

    In a line at the cafe
    I overheard the waitress say
    "These cats is broke, I knows 'em
    "Throw 'em out the doors and close 'em (get 'em outta here)

    Spirits sagging, funds are low
    This occupation's got to go
    Up pulls a limo, up goes a thrill
    The suits are picking up the bill!

    It's all right for them to tag along
    It's just one bill they're tacking on
    I'll find some way to get along

    The business suits to the rescue
    So nice doing business with you
    You will really ape and clown
    When you realize the dough they're shelling out
    For this deal!
    The suits are picking up,
    The suits are picking up the bill

    I cannot see from where I'm standing
    My friends have passed out on a landing (good night)
    Guess one too many
    Has left us high and dry
    I'll be feeling down
    Til the suits get back in town


    trou macacq (this song makes me want to dance and i do NOT dance. ever.)

    This is the story of the trou macacq,
    The pine box derby, the monkey track
    This is the story of the trou macacq,
    The pine box derby, the monkey track

    Not what I heard or saw on TV,
    But what I witnessed entirely
    Each bend in the road was infact
    Another curve on the monkey track

    Once upon a time we thought we were free
    And had control over destiny
    We saw ourselves a competent band
    Able to reason, prosper and plan

    But we had a chamber up in the moon
    Circumstance made us change our tune
    When the veil was torn from our face
    We became the monkeys riding the race

    (MONKEY!)
    You think you got the stuff it takes to break away?
    Boy you'll be on the track every day
    Talent, vigor,drive
    You'll eat peanut butter the rest of your life

    And these last things you can arrange
    Find other people equally strange
    Stuff yourselves in the van and ride
    The pine box derby to the finish line

    I said: Chris P. rides on a serious plan
    (He's going to finish as fast as he can)
    The Escalator takes it personally
    (And does not drive professionally)
    Charming Enchantress and Bones can run
    (Even if the winshield wipers are on)
    I the Broadcaster avoid police
    But the Bat was led into custody


    hell (the song that started it all for me)

    In the afterlife
    You could be headed for the serious strife
    Now you make the scene all day
    But tomorrow there'll be Hell to pay
    People listen attentively
    I mean about future calamity
    I used to think the idea was obsolete
    Until I heard the old man stamping his feet.

    This is a place where eternally
    Fire is applied to the body
    Teeth are extruded and bones are ground
    Then baked into cakes which are passed around.

    Beauty, talent, fame, money, refinement
    Top skill and brain
    But all the things you try to hide
    Will be revealed on the other side.

    Now the D and the A and the M
    and the N and the A
    And the T and the I-O-N
    Lose your face, lose your name
    Then get fitted for a suit of flame

    I Feel Free
    Eric Clapton - Crossroads (1988)


    By jack bruce and pete brown

    Feel when I dance with you,
    We move like the sea.
    You, you?re all I want to know.
    I feel free, I feel free, I feel free.

    I can walk down the street, there?s no one there
    Though the pavements are one huge crowd.
    I can drive down the road; my eyes don?t see,
    Though my mind wants to cry out loud.

    I feel free, I feel free, I feel free.

    I can walk down the street, there?s no one there
    Though the pavements are one huge crowd.
    I can drive down the road; my eyes don?t see,
    Though my mind wants to cry out loud,
    Though my mind wants to cry out loud.

    Dance floor is like the sea,
    Ceiling is the sky.
    You?re the sun and as you shine on me,
    I feel free, I feel free, I feel free.

    It's My Life
    by No Doubt

    (originally by Talk Talk)

    Funny how I find myself
    In love with you
    If I could buy my reasoning
    I'd pay to lose
    One half won't do
    I've asked myself
    How much do you commit yourself?

    It's my life
    Don't you forget
    It's my life
    It never ends

    Funny how I blind myself
    I never knew
    If I was sometimes played upon
    Afraid to lose
    I'd tell myself what good you do
    Convince myself

    It's my life
    Don't you forget
    It's my life
    It never ends

    I've asked myself
    How much do you commit yourself?

    It's my life
    Don't you forget
    Caught in the crowd
    It never ends (3x)

    Thriller
    by Michael Jackson


    [1st Verse]
    It's Close To Midnight And Something Evil's Lurking In The Dark
    Under The Moonlight You See A Sight That Almost Stops Your Heart
    You Try To Scream But Terror Takes The Sound Before You Make It
    You Start To Freeze As Horror Looks You Right Between The Eyes,
    You're Paralyzed

    [Chorus]
    'Cause This Is Thriller, Thriller Night
    And No One's Gonna Save You From The Beast About
    Strike
    You Know It's Thriller, Thriller Night
    You're Fighting For Your Life Inside A Killer, Thriller
    Tonight

    [2nd Verse]
    You Hear The Door Slam And Realize There's Nowhere Left To Run
    You Feel The Cold Hand And Wonder If You'll Ever See The Sun
    You Close Your Eyes And Hope That This Is Just
    Imagination
    But All The While You Hear The Creature Creepin' Up
    Behind
    You're Out Of Time

    [Chorus]
    'Cause This Is Thriller, Thriller Night
    There Ain't No Second Chance Against The Thing With
    Forty Eyes
    You Know It's Thriller, Thriller Night
    You're Fighting For Your Life Inside Of Killer, Thriller Tonight

    [Bridge]
    Night Creatures Call
    And The Dead Start To Walk In Their Masquerade
    There's No Escapin' The Jaws Of The Alien This Time
    (They're Open Wide)
    This Is The End Of Your Life

    [3rd Verse]
    They're Out To Get You, There's Demons Closing In On Every Side
    They Will Possess You Unless You Change The Number On Your Dial
    Now Is The Time For You And I To Cuddle Close Together
    All Thru The Night I'll Save You From The Terror On The Screen,
    I'll Make You See

    [Chorus]
    That This Is Thriller, Thriller Night
    'Cause I Can Thrill You More Than Any Ghost Would Dare To Try
    Girl, This Is Thriller, Thriller Night
    So Let Me Hold You Tight And Share A Killer, Diller, Chiller
    Thriller Here Tonight

    [Rap Performed By Vincent Price]
    Darkness Falls Across The Land
    The Midnite Hour Is Close At Hand
    Creatures Crawl In Search Of Blood
    To Terrorize Y'awl's Neighbourhood
    And Whosoever Shall Be Found
    Without The Soul For Getting Down
    Must Stand And Face The Hounds Of Hell
    And Rot Inside A Corpse's Shell
    The Foulest Stench Is In The Air
    The Funk Of Forty Thousand Years
    And Grizzy Ghouls From Every Tomb
    Are Closing In To Seal Your Doom
    And Though You Fight To Stay Alive
    Your Body Starts To Shiver
    For No Mere Mortal Can Resist
    The Evil Of The Thriller

    More Halloween inspiration....

    I Want Candy
    by Bow Wow Wow

    I know a guy who's tough but sweet
    He's so fine, he can't be beat
    He's got everything that I desire
    Sets the summer sun on fire

    I want candy
    I want candy

    Go to see him when the sun goes down
    Ain't no finer boy in town
    You're my guy, you walked up to order
    So sweet, you make my mouth water

    I want candy
    I want candy

    Candy on the beach, there's nothing better
    But I like candy when it's wrapped in a sweater
    Some day soon I'll make you mine
    Then I'll have candy all the time

    I want candy
    I want candy
    I want candy
    I want candy

    Monster Mash
    by Bobby "Boris" Pickett and the Crypt-Kickers

    I was working in the lab late one night
    When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
    For my monster from his slab began to rise
    And suddenly to my surprise

    He did the mash
    He did the monster mash
    The monster mash
    It was a graveyard smash
    He did the mash
    It caught on in a flash
    He did the mash
    He did the monster mash

    From my laboratory in the castle east
    To the master bedroom where the vampires feast
    The ghouls all came from their humble abodes
    To catch a jolt from my electrodes

    They did the mash
    They did the monster mash
    The monster mash
    It was a graveyard smash
    They did the mash
    It caught on in a flash
    They did the mash
    They did the monster mash

    The zombies were having fun
    The party had just begun
    The guests included Wolf Man
    Dracula and his son

    The scene was rockin', all were digging the sounds
    Eegore on chains, backed by his baying hounds
    The coffin-bangers were about to arrive
    With their vocal group, "The Crypt-Kicker Five"

    They played the mash
    They played the monster mash
    The monster mash
    And it was a graveyard smash
    They played the mash
    Its caught on in a flash
    They played the mash
    They played the monster mash

    Out from his coffin, Drac's voice did ring
    Seems he was troubled by just one thing
    He opened the lid and shook his fist
    And said, "Whatever happened to my Transylvania twist?"

    It's now the mash
    It's now the monster mash
    The monster mash
    It's now a graveyard smash
    It's now the mash
    It's caught on in a flash
    It's now the mash
    It's now the monster mash

    Now everything's cool, Drac's a part of the band
    And my monster mash is the hit of the land
    For you, the living, this mash was meant too
    When you get to my door, tell them Boris sent you

    Then you can mash
    Then you can monster mash
    The monster mash
    And do my graveyard smash
    Then you can mash
    You'll catch on in a flash
    Then you can mash
    Then you can monster mash

    Self Control
    Laura Branigan, Self Control (1984)

    Oh, the night is my world
    City light painted girl
    In the day nothing matters
    It's the night time that flatters
    In the night, no control
    Through the wall something's breaking
    Wearing white as you're walkin'
    Down the street of my soul

    You take my self, you take my self control
    You got me livin' only for the night
    Before the morning comes, the story's told
    You take my self, you take my self control

    Another night, another day goes by
    I never stop myself to wonder why
    You help me to forget to play my role
    You take my self, you take my self control

    I, I live among the creatures of the night
    I haven't got the will to try and fight
    Against a new tomorrow, so I guess I'll just believe it
    That tomorrow never comes

    A safe night, I'm living in the forest of my dream
    I know the night is not as it would seem
    I must believe in something, so I'll make myself believe it
    That this night will never go

    Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
    Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

    Oh, the night is my world
    City light painted girl
    In the day nothing matters
    It's the night time that flatters

    I, I live among the creatures of the night
    I haven't got the will to try and fight
    Against a new tomorrow, so I guess I'll just believe it
    That tomorrow never knows

    A safe night, I'm living in the forest of a dream
    I know the night is not as it would seem
    I must believe in something, so I'll make myself believe it
    That this night will never go

    Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh
    You take my self, you take my self control
    You take my self, you take my self control
    You take my self, you take my self control
    You take my self, you take my self control
    You take my self, you take my self control
    You take my self, you take my self control
    You take my self, you take my self control
    You take my self, you take my self control
    You take my self, you take my self control
    You take my self, you take my self control ... [fade out]


    The Monster in the Mirror
    Grover
    written by C Cerf and N Stiles (1989)

    Saw a monster in the mirror
    when I woke up today,
    A monster in the mirror but I
    did not run away.
    I did not shed a tear or hide
    beneath my bed
    Though the monster
    looked at me and this is
    what he said:

    He said, "Wubba, wubba,
    wubba, wubba, woo,
    woo, woo."
    Wubba, wubba, wubba,
    and a doodly do.
    He sang, "Wubba, wubba,
    wubba," so I sang it too.
    Do not wubba me or I will
    wubba you.
    Do not wubba me or I will
    wubba you.

    Told the monster in
    the mirror,
    "No, I am not scared."
    Then I smiled at him and
    thanked him for the song that
    we had shared.
    Well, the monster thanked me
    too, he smiled right back
    and then
    The monster in the mirror sang
    his song again.

    (He sang) "Wubba, wubba,
    wubba, wubba, woo,
    woo, woo."
    Wubba, wubba, wubba, and a
    doodly do.
    He went, "Wubba, wubba,
    wubba," and I sang along.
    Yes, wubba, wubba, wubba, is
    a monster song.
    Wubba, wubba, wubba,
    is a monster song.

    If your mirror has a
    monster in it do not shout.
    This kind of situation does not
    call for freaking out.
    And do nothing that you
    would not like to see him do,
    'Cause that monster in the
    mirror he just might be you.
    Singing, Wubba, wubba,
    wubba, wubba, woo,
    woo, woo.
    Wubba, wubba, wubba, and a
    doodly do.
    Wubba, wubba, wubba you
    can join in too.
    Yes, if you wubba me then
    I will wubba you.
    If you wubba me then
    I will wubba you.

    Going wubba, wubba, wubba,
    is the thing to do.
    Everytime you wubba us we'll
    wubba you.

    That cracks me up that you posted Self Control. Many people don't even remember that song but it is one of my absolute favorites from the 80's. :)

    Damn I love this song... Is it Christmas yet??
    all i want for christmas

    All I Want for Christmas is You
    by Mariah Carey


    I don't want a lot for Christmas
    There's just one thing I need
    I don't care about the presents
    Underneath the Christmas tree
    I just want you for my own
    More than you could ever know
    Make my wish come true...
    All I want for Christmas
    Is you...

    I don't want a lot for Christmas
    There is just one thing I need
    I don't care about the presents
    Underneath the Christmas tree
    I don't need to hang my stocking
    There upon the fireplace
    Santa Claus won't make me happy
    With a toy on Christmas day
    I just want you for my own
    More than you could ever know
    Make my wish come true
    All I want for Christmas is you...
    You baby

    I won't ask for much this Christmas
    I won't even wish for snow
    I'm just gonna keep on waiting
    Underneath the mistletoe
    I won't make a list and send it
    To the North Pole for Saint Nick
    I won't even stay awake to
    Hear those magic reindeer click
    'Cause I just want you here tonight
    Holding on to me so tight
    What more can I do?
    Baby all I want for Christmas is you
    You...Baby

    All the lights are shining
    So brightly everywhere
    And the sound of children's
    Laughter fills the air
    And everyone is singing
    I hear those sleigh bells ringing
    Santa won't you bring me the one I really need -
    Won't you please bring my baby to me?

    Oh I don't want a lot for Christmas
    This is all I'm asking for
    I just want to see baby
    Standing right outside my door
    Oh I just want you for my own
    More than you could ever know
    Make my wish come true
    Baby all I want for Christmas is
    You... Baby

    All I want for Christmas is you baby... (repeat)

    The best film of 1996 had an awesome two volume soundtrack including this little gem:

    Local God
    Everclear
    (1996)

    You do that Romeo
    Be what you wanna be
    Look like your running late
    Do that stupid dance for me
    Do that Romeo
    That go-go Romeo
    I see you twist and turn
    You look so stupid, happy in love

    Be my Romeo
    Please be my voice in this world
    I can't sing the songs that you sing
    I can't find the gorgeous words
    Would you be my Romeo
    My go-ro-ro-romeo
    I see you twist and turn
    You look so stupid

    I feel just like a local god when I'm with the boys
    We do what we want, yes we do what we want
    I feel just like a local god when I'm with the boys
    We do what we want, yes we do what we want
    We do what we want
    Yeah, we do what we want

    Be my Romeo
    Tell me all about your love
    Tell me all about your pain
    Baited breath and rubber gloves
    Be my romeo
    My go Ro-romeo

    In the Waiting Line - by Zero 7

    Wait in line
    ?Till your time
    Ticking clock
    Everyone stop

    Everyone's saying different things to me
    Different things to me
    Everyone's saying different things to me
    Different things to me

    Woooohh
    Do you believe
    In what you see
    There doesn't seem to be anybody else who agrees with me

    Do you believe
    In what you see
    Motionless wheel
    Nothing is real
    Wasting my time
    In the waiting line
    Do you believe in
    What you see

    Nine to five
    Living lies
    Everyday
    Stealing time
    Everyone's taking everything they can
    Everything they can
    Everyone's taking everything they can
    Everything they can

    Woooohh
    Do you believe
    In what you feel
    It doesn't seem to be anybody else who agrees with me

    Do you believe
    In what you see
    Motionless wheel
    Nothing is real
    Wasting my time
    In the waiting line
    Do you believe
    In what you see

    Ah and I?ll shout and I?ll scream
    But I?d rather not have seen
    And i'll hide away for another day

    Do you believe
    In what you see
    Motionless wheel
    Nothing is real
    Wasting my time
    In the waiting line
    Do you believe
    In what you see

    Everyone's saying different things to me
    Different things to me
    Different things to me
    Different things to me
    Different things to me
    Everyone's taking everything they can
    Everything they can

    King of Pain has always been one of my favs.

    =====

    There's a little black spot on the sun today
    It's the same old thing as yesterday
    There's a black hat caught in a high tree top
    There's a flag pole rag and the wind won't stop

    I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
    With the world turning circles running 'round my brain
    I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
    But it's my destiny to be the king of pain

    There's a little black spot on the sun today
    That's my soul up there
    It's the same old thing as yesterday
    Tha's my soul up there
    There's a black hat caught in a high tree top
    That's my soul up there
    There's a flag pole rag and the wind won't stop
    That's my sould up there

    I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
    With the world turning circles running 'round my brain
    I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
    But it's my destiny to be the king of pain

    There's a fossil that's trapped in a high cliff wall
    That's my soul up there
    There's a dead salmon frozen in a waterfall
    That's my soul up there
    There's a blue whale beached by a springtide's ebb
    That's my soul up there
    There's a butterfly trapped in a spider's web
    That's my soul up there

    I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
    With the world turning circles running 'round my brain
    I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
    But it's my destiny to be the king of pain

    There's a king on a throne with his eyes torn out
    There's a blind man looking for a shadow of doubt
    Ther's a rich man sleeping on a golden bed
    There's a skeleton choking on a crust of bread
    King of pain

    There's a red fox thorn by a huntsman's pack
    That's my soul up there
    There's a black winged gull with a broken back
    That's my soul up there
    There's a little black spot on the sun today
    It's the same old thing as yesterday

    I have stood here before inside the pouring rain
    With the world turning circles running 'round my brain
    I guess I'm always hoping that you'll end this reign
    But it's my destiny to be the king of pain

    King of pain
    King of pain
    King of pain
    I'll always be king of pain

    It doesn't get any better than:
    "I got a mysterious, gift from my dead dad.
    It was an invisibility cloak, HOW RAD" [face_laugh]

    Wizard Chess
    By Harry and the Potters


    I don't want to go home for Christmas, this year.
    I don't want to see my family.
    I just want to stay at school, for this Winter Break.
    I just want to stay at school, with my best friend Ron.

    Oh, Oh, Uh Uh Oh, We'll spend our Christmas playing Wizard Chess.
    Oh, Uh, Uh Uh Oh, We'll play Wizard Chess this Christmas.

    Ron's mom sent him, a nice package of presents.
    She sent me, a nice big sweater.
    I got a mysterious, gift from my dead dad.
    It was an invisibility cloak, HOW RAD!


    Oh, Oh, Uh Uh Oh, We'll spend our Christmas being invisible.
    Oh, Uh, Uh Uh Oh, We'll be invisible this Christmas.

    Oh, Oh, Uh Uh Oh, We'll spend our Christmas playing Wizard Chess.
    Oh, Uh, Uh Uh Oh, We'll play Wizard Chess this Christmas.
    Oh yeah...
