Indulge me

I realise it's only been a couple of months since I last invited you to play this game, but I'm looking at a mountain of ironing and idunwanna, so indulge me, will you?

1. The Postal Service, This Place Is A Prison - recognised by skylar_muc
What does it take to get a drink in this place?
What does it take?
How long must I wait?

2. The Levellers, This Garden
The other day I saw a fox
He was running for his life
His eyes were wide but his mind was shut
To the redcoat's bugle calls
But when he got home his path was blocked
By some 'sportman's' clever guise
And if this is how far your culture's got
Then I deny it

3. Re-flex, The Politics Of Dancing
We got the message
I heard it on the airwaves
The politicians
Are now dj's

4. Frank Sinatra, New York, New York - scatterheart got there first
I want to wake up in a city that never sleeps
And find I'm a number one, top of the list, king of the hill
A number one

5. Depeche Mode, Suffer Well - bogwitch got there first
An angel led me when I was blind
I said take me back, I've changed my mind
Now I believe

6. Talk Talk, Such A Shame - scatterheart got there first
Tell me to relax - I just stare.
Maybe I don't know
if I should change
a feeling that we share.

7. The Dandy Warhols, Everyone Is Totally Insane
Hear me out, I must have changed
Some time and all at once
'Cause it seems
That nothing stays the same as certainly as me
And nothing stays the same but me

8. Talking Heads, This Must Be The Place (naive melody)
Out of all those kinds of people
You got a face with a view
I'm just an animal looking for a home
Share the same space for a minute or two
And you love me till my heart stops
Love me till I'm dead

9. Snow Patrol, Set The Fire To The Third Bar - recognised by skylar_muc
I hang my coat up in the first bar
There is no peace that I've found so far
The laughter penetrates my silence
As drunken men find flaws in science

10. Mylo, Destroy Rock 'n' Roll
Michael Jackson, Prince, Bruce Springsteen,
Tina Turner, David Bowie, Van Halen, Madonna,
Huey Lewis & The News, The Cars, Herbie Hancock,

The Thompson Twins, Missing Persons, Duran Duran, Breathe, Eurythmics,

11. Prince, 1999 - speakr2customrs got there first
If you didn't come to party
Don't bother knockin' on my door
I got a lion in my pocket
And baby, he's ready to roar

12. Eric Clapton, Malted Milk
My doorknob keeps on turning, there must be spooks around my bed.
And I have a funny, funny feeling and the hair's rising on my head.

13. Timo Maas ft. Brian Molko, Like Siamese
It's cold down by the water
And there's blood on the trees
We'll float shoulder to shoulder

14. Lenny Kravitz, I Belong To You
I always loved you from the start
But I could not figure out
That I had to do it everyday

15. Big Country, The Longest Day
But like the dog that howls in the night
You fill my broken heart with fright
When I touch you the whole world sighs
When you touch me the whole world cries

16. Japan, Gentlemen Take Polaroids
And if you said you love me how could I mind?
Is there another side to everything you do?

17. The Stone Roses, Made Of Stone
Your pink fat lips let go a scream
You fry and melt; I love the scene

18. Thelma Houston, Don't Leave Me This Way - scatterheart got there first
Aaah baby, my heart is full of love and desire for you
Now come on down and do what you gotta do
You started this fire down in my soul
Now can't you see it's burning out of control
So come on satisfy the need in me

19. Keane, Sunshine
And only some dumb idiot
Would let you go
But if I'm one thing
Then that's the one thing

20. The BeeGees, To Love Somebody
I'm a man, can't you see what I am?
I live and breathe for you
But what good does it do
If I ain't got you?

21. Marillion, Kayleigh - speakr2customrs got there first
Do you remember chalk hearts melting on a playground wall?
Do you remember dawn escapes from moon-washed college halls?
Do you remember the cherry blossom in the market square?
Do you remember I thought it was confetti in our hair?

22. Jimi Hendrix (or Bob Dylan, but not on my player 'cause I don't like his voice), All Along The Watchtower - speakr2customrs got there first
Businessmen they drink my wine
Ploughmen dig my earth
None will level on the line
Nobody of it is worth

23. John Lennon, How Do You Sleep? - magic_wanderer got there first
A pretty face may last a year or two
But pretty soon they'll see what you can do
The sound you make is muzak to my ears

24. Bent, As You Fall
So is this how (is this how)
You were found?
Like a star fallen
To the ground?

25. The Cranberries, Electric Blue
If you should go, you should know I love you
If you should go, you should know I'm here

26. The Monkees, I'm A Believer - speakr2customrs got there first
I thought love was more or less a given thing,
Seems the more I gave the less I got.
What's the use in trying?
All you get is pain.

27. Iggy Pop, The Passenger - recognised by skylar_muc
And everything was made for you and me
All of it was made for you and me
'cause it just belongs to you and me
So let's take a ride and see what's mine

28. T. Rex, Children Of The Revolution - recognised by skylar_muc
I drive a Rolls Royce 'cause it's good for my voice

29. Cake, Short Skirt, Long Jacket - recognised by deadsoul820
She is fast and thorough
And sharp as a tack
She's touring the facility
And picking up slack

30. Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel, Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me)
How can you ignore my faith in everything
When I know what faith is and what it's worth?

31. The Rolling Stones, Undercover Of The Night - speakr2customrs got there first
All the young men they've been rounded up
And sent to camps back in the jungle
And people whisper, people double-talk
And once proud fathers act so humble

32. Björk, Hidden Place
I'm so close to tears
and so close to simply calling you up

33. Soft Cell, Tainted Love - speakr2customrs got there first
Don't touch me please
I cannot stand the way you tease
I love you though you hurt me so
Now I'm going to pack my things and go

34. The Cure, Let's Go To Bed - bogwitch got there first
but I don't care if you don't
and I don't feel if you don't
and I don't want it if you don't
and I won't say it
if you don't say it first

35. Blondie, Rapture - bogwitch got there first
And then you're in the man from Mars
You go out at night, eatin' cars
You eat Cadillacs, Lincolns too
Mercurys and Subarus

Uggghhh, that Marilyn Manson version...and do you know there's actually kids alive today that think his is the original? What do they teach 'em in school these days, I wonder.

    That must have been so hard, on both of you! Now she can settle in and you can relax.

    I feel your pain - it took me weeks to clean Frank's room.
  • 8 Jul 2020, 12:16
    It must be a relief to have seen her sitting and chatting.

    I wish you well with the house clearing. I'm not sure if this is helpful - but it took my sister and I at least one full day a week for a…

    Oh my goodness! I can just feel that horrible sinking in the pit of the stomach when you realised and there was nothing you could do about it.
  • 8 Jul 2020, 01:03
    I'm glad the move went so well. It sounds like it might be a great place for her.
  • 7 Jul 2020, 01:17
    I'm glad things turned out okay! (Other than the rhubarb.)
