    Hier könnt ihr Songtexte reinstellen, die eurer Meinung nach den im Betreff
    vorgegebenen Attributen entsprechen. Bitte nur einen Songtext pro Posting um das Lesen nicht ganz zur Strapaze werden zu lassen! Von wann die Texte sind spielt keine Rolle, ob uralt oder brandneu, völlisch egaaal (Scharping)!

    Ich mach mal den Anfang, natürlich mit einem Songtext von Nik Kershaw! Mein Faible für die Musik dieses Herrn dürfte hier ja allgemein bekannt sein!


    Nik Kershaw - Billy (from the album "15 minutes", 1999)

    Billy is a new man, he does the best he can
    to figure out what it's about and what the
    hell he's meant to be.
    He does the right thing when expected, nuff
    respect , once in a while he likes a smoke and a joke,
    just as long as it's P.C.
    And he thinks that he cries at the Movies
    'Cos he's in touch with his feminine side
    Sally wants a proud man
    Sally wants a proud man
    Sally wants a proud man
    But she's taken all his pride

    Billy is a new man, at least when she's around,
    a model father or if needed, he'll
    be mother for the day,
    He watches "Men Behaving Badly" though
    he'll gladly switch it off if she's offended
    he'll pretend it wasn't funny any way
    He's got one face he keeps for his woman
    And one for when he's out with the guys
    Sally wants a true man
    Sally wants a true man
    Sally wants a true man
    But he's living out a lie

    Better go and find an analyst, or something
    time for sorting out his head
    Better go and find a book to read about it
    just like his daddy never did

    And he reads "Marie Claire" at the Doctors just
    in case there is something he should know

    Sally wants a free man
    Sally wants a free man
    Sally wants a free man
    But she will not let him go

    Billy is confused, he feels abusive and abused
    he's got one hand on an olive branch
    the other on his crotch
    He drives a sensible coupe, he thinks Oasis
    are OK, he drinks non alcoholic lager though
    he'd rather drink a scotch

    And he tries very hard to be happy but there
    are a few little things in the way

    Billy wants a good girl and a bad girl and a
    blonde girl, and a brunette or a Bond girl and
    a house maid and a teas maid and a French
    maid, yeah a 5ex aid, and a Goddess and a
    confidante, a wet nurse and an agony aunt,
    a lover, mother, baby sitter, a young girl with a
    pretty face and smart but not too smart to love
    an asshole, yes, an asshole, Billy wants to be
    an asshole, singin'

    Billy wants it all now
    Billy wants it all now
    Billy wants it all now
    But he's too ashamed to say

    And
    Sally wants a Superman
    Sally wants a Superman
    Sally wants a Superman
    She hasn't got a chance

    Zum Thema ergreifend:

    Kaum ein anderes englischsprachiges Lied hat mich so ergriffen, denn es handelt von eine Kind, dessen Eltern ums Leben kamen und das nun bei einer Pflegefamilie aufwächst, welche versucht sein Vertrauen zu gewinnen:


    Hush now, don't you cry
    Wipe away the teardrop from your eye
    You're lying safe in bed
    It was all a bad dream
    Spinning in your head
    Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
    Of someone close to you leaving the game of life
    So here it is, another chance
    Wide awake you face the day
    Your dream is over... or has it just begun?

    There's a place I like to hide
    A doorway that I run through in the night
    Relax child, you were there
    But only didn't realize it and you were scared
    It's a place where you will learn
    To face your fears, retrace the years
    And ride the whims of your mind
    Commanding in another world
    Suddenly you hear and see
    This magic new dimension

    I- will be watching over you
    I- am gonna help you see it through
    I- will protect you in the night
    I- am smiling next to you, in Silent Lucidity

    -spoken during solo-
    [Visualize your dream]
    [Record it in the present tense]
    [Put it into a permanent form]
    [If you persist in your efforts]
    [You can achieve dream control]
    [Dream control]
    [How's that then, better?]
    [Hug me]

    If you open your mind for me
    You won't rely on open eyes to see
    The walls you built within
    Come tumbling down, and a new world will begin
    Living twice at once you learn
    You're safe from the pain in the dream domain
    A soul set free to fly
    A round trip journey in your head
    Master of illusion, can you realize
    Your dream's alive, you can be the guide but...

    I- will be watching over you
    I- am gonna help to see it through
    I- will protect you in the night
    I- am smiling next to you....

    Es ist zugleich auch eine der schönsten Balladen im Bereich Metal. SWR3-Lyrics (die Lieder werden vorher von einem Sprecher übersetzt - es hört sich immer wie eine geschichte an, dann wird das Lied im Anschluß gespielt) haben dieses Lied in ihre Sammlung aufgenommen und die Version ist noch ergreifender.

    Gruß

    J.B.

    Winter, Eiseskälte, tiefste Nacht, Einsamkeit und dann dieser Text dazu....

    At Night

    sunk deep in the night
    i sink in the night
    standing alone underneath the sky
    i feel the chill of ice
    on my face
    i watch the hours go by

    the hours go by...

    you sleep
    sleep in a safe bed
    curled and protected
    protected from sight
    under a safe roof
    deep in your house
    unaware of the changes at night

    at night
    i hear the darkness breathe
    i sense the quiet despair
    listen to the silence
    at night
    someone has to be there
    someone has to be there

    someone must be there

    mir läufts immer kalt den rücken runter bei Biko von den Simple Minds. Besonders bei der Live-Version mit Peter Gabriel und Youssou N'Dour


    Port Elizabeth weather fine
    It was business as usual
    In police room 619
    Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
    Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
    Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja
    -The man is dead

    When I try to sleep at night
    I can only dream in red
    The outside world is black and white
    With only one colour dead
    Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
    Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
    Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja
    -The man is dead

    You can blow out a candle
    But you can't blow out a fire
    Once the flames begin to catch
    The wind will blow it higher
    Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
    Yihla Moja, Yihla Moja
    -The man is dead

    And the eyes of the world are
    watching now
    watching now

    Ich finde Belfast child von den Simple Minds immer wieder ergreifend. Habe ich auch schon mal im Englischunterricht eingesetzt, als wir das Thema "Northern Ireland" behandelt haben.

    From the album "Street Fighting Years"

    When my love said to me
    Meet me down by the gallow tree
    For it's sad news I bring
    About this old town and all that it's offering
    Some say troubles abound
    Some day soon they're gonna pull the old town down
    One day we'll return here,
    When the Belfast Child sings again

    Brothers sisters where are you now
    As I look for you right through the crowd
    All my life here I've spent
    With my faith in God the Church and the Government
    But there's sadness abound
    Some day soon they're gonna pull the old town down

    One day we'll return here,
    When the Belfast Child sings again
    When the Belfast Child sings again

    Some come back Billy, won't you come on home
    Come back Mary, you've been away so long
    The streets are empty, and your mother's gone
    The girls are crying, it's been oh so long
    And your father's calling, come on home
    Won't you come on home, won't you come on home

    ome back people, you've been gone a while
    And the war is raging, in the Emerald Isle
    That's flesh and blood man, that's flesh and blood
    All the girls are crying but all's not lost

    The streets are empty, the streets are cold
    Won't you come on home, won't you come on home

    The streets are empty
    Life goes on

    One day we'll return here
    When the Belfast Child sings again
    When the Belfast Child sings again

    Einen klasse Text (den ich momentan auch am liebsten schreien würde) finde ich auch immer mal wieder bei Alanis Morissette. Den hier mag ich am liebsten.

    Alanis Morissette
    You Oughta Know

    I want you to know that I'm happy for you
    I wish nothing but the best for you both
    An older version of me
    Is she perverted like me
    Would she go down on your in a theater
    Does she speak eloquently
    And would she have your baby
    I'm sure she'd make a really excellent mother

    'Cause the love that you gave that we made
    wasn't able to make it enough for you to be open wide, no
    And every time you speak her name
    Does she know how you told me you'd hold me
    Until you died, 'til you died
    But you're still alive

    Chorus:
    And I'm here to remind you
    Of the mess you left when you went away
    It's not fair to deny me
    Of the cross I bear that you gave to me
    You, you, you oughta know

    You seem very well, things look peaceful
    I'm not quite as well, I thought you should know
    Did you forget about me Mr. Duplicity
    I hate to but you in the middle of dinner
    It was a slap in the face how quickly I was replaced
    Are you thinking of me when you fuck her

    'Cause the love that you gave that we made
    wasn't able to make it enough for you to be open wide, no
    And every time you speak her name
    Does she know how you told me you'd hold me
    Until you died, 'til you died
    But you're sill alive

    Repeat Chorus

    'Cause the joke that you laid in the bed that was me
    And I'm not gonna fade
    As soon as you close your eyes and you know it
    And every time I scratch my nails down someone else's back
    I hope you feel it...well can you feel it

    Und als letztes endlich mal Witziges:

    Ich finde rein vom Text her Rupert Holmes und seinen Pina Colada Song echt ganz witzig.

    I was tired of my lady
    We'd been together too long
    Like a worn-out recording
    Of a favorite song
    So while she lay there sleeping
    I read the paper in bed
    And in the personal columns
    There was this letter I read

    "If you like Pina Coladas
    And getting caught in the rain
    If you're not into yoga
    If you have half a brain
    If you'd like making love at midnight
    In the dunes on the Cape
    Then I'm the love that you've looked for
    Write to me and escape."
    I didn't think about my lady
    I know that sounds kind of mean
    But me and my old lady
    Have fallen into the same dull routine
    So I wrote to the paper
    Took out a personal ad
    And though I'm nobody's poet
    I thought it wasn't half bad

    "Yes I like Pina Coladas
    And getting caught in the rain
    I'm not much into health food
    I am into champagne
    I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon
    And cut through all this red-tape
    At a bar called O'Malley's
    Where we'll plan our escape."

    So I waited with high hopes
    And she walked in the place
    I knew her smile in an instant
    I knew the curve of her face
    It was my own lovely lady
    And she said, "Oh it's you."
    Then we laughed for a moment
    And I said, "I never knew."

    That you like Pina Coladas
    Getting caught in the rain
    And the feel of the ocean
    And the taste of champagne
    If you'd like making love at midnight
    In the dunes of the Cape

    You're the lady I've looked for
    Come with me and escape

    (repeat chorus twice and fade out)

    Von mir gibt's was von Pink Floyd (ist hier eh unterrepräsentiert)

    Pink Floyd
    Mother
    (aus: The Wall)


    Mother, do you think they'll drop the bomb?
    Mother, do you think they'll like this song?
    Mother, do you think they'll try to break my balls?
    Ooooowaa Mother, should I build a wall?

    Mother, should I run for President?
    Mother, should I trust the government?
    Mother, will they put me in the firing line?
    Ooooowaa Is it just a waste of time?

    Hush, my baby. Baby, don't you cry.
    Momma's gonna make all of your nightmares come true.
    Momma's gonna put all of her fears into you.
    Momma's gonna keep you right here under her wing.
    She won't let you fly, but she might let you sing.
    Momma's gonna keep Baby cozy and warm.
    Oooo Babe.
    Oooo Babe.
    Ooo Babe, of course Momma's gonna help build a wall.

    Mother, do you think she's good enough,
    For me?
    Mother, do you think she's dangerous,
    To me?
    Mother will she tear your little boy apart?
    Ooooowaa Mother, will she break my heart?

    Hush, my baby. Baby, don't you cry.
    Momma's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you.
    Momma won't let anyone dirty get through.
    Momma's gonna wait up until you get in.
    Momma will always find out where you've been.
    Momma's gonna keep Baby healthy and clean.
    Oooo Babe.
    Oooo Babe.
    Ooo Babe, you'll always be Baby to me.

    Mother, did it need to be so high?

    Sven

    Den fand ich auch ganz nett. Da kann jeder seinen eigenen Senf reininterpretieren und rausfinden, was mit "born to make mistakes" gemeint ist.


    Human


    Come on, baby, dry your eyes
    Wipe your tears
    Never like to see you cry
    Won't you please forgive me?

    I wouldn't ever try to hurt you
    I just needed someone to hold me
    To fill the void while you were gone
    To fill this space of emptiness

    I'm only human
    Of flesh and blood I'm made
    Human
    Born to make mistakes

    So many nights I longed to hold you
    So many times I looked and saw your face
    Nothing could change the way I feel
    No-one else could ever take your place

    I'm only human
    Of flesh and blood I'm made
    Human
    Born to make mistakes

    I am just a man

    Please forgive me

    The tears I cry aren't tears of pain
    They're only to hide my guilt and shame
    I forgive you now I ask the same of you
    While we were apart I was human too

    I'm only human
    Of flesh and blood I'm made
    I am just a man
    Human
    Born to make mistakes

    Obwohl ich im Pop-Bereich von sozialkritischen Texten überhaupt nichts halte (dazu werde ich demnächst vielleicht mal was posten), gibt es hin und wieder doch ein paar wohltuende Ausnahmen. Der für mich bisher bemerkenswerteste Text stammt aus dem Hit "Streets Of London" von Ralph McTell. Darin ermahnt er all die ewig Unzufriedenen aus unserer verwöhnten Zivilisation daran, sich und ihr Leben mal in einem anderen Licht zu betrachten. Insbesondere in unserem Land könnten sich eine Menge Zeitgenossen diesen Text hinter die Ohren schreiben – unglaublich, auf welch hohem Niveau hier ständig gejammert wird!

    Ralph McTell nimmt in seinem Song den Zuhörer quasi an die Hand und führt ihn durch die Metropole London, um ihm mal einige Seiten dieser Stadt zu zeigen, die dieser wohl übersehen hat. Spätestens jetzt sollte ihm aufgehen, dass seine eigenen Sorgen geradezu lächerlicher Natur sind:

    Have you seen the old man
    In the closed down market
    Kicking up the papers with his worn out shoes
    In his eyes you see no pride
    Hands held loosely at his side
    Yesterday's paper, telling yesterday's news

    So how can you tell me you're lonely
    And say for you that the sun don't shine
    Let me take you by the hand
    And lead you through the streets of London
    I'll show you something
    To make you change your mind

    Have you seen the old girl
    Who walks the streets of London
    Dirt in her hair and her clothes in rags
    She's no time for talking
    She just keeps right on walking
    Carrying her home in two carrier bags

    So how can you tell me you're lonely
    And say for you that the sun don't shine
    Let me take you by the hand
    And lead you through the streets of London
    I'll show you something
    To make you change your mind

    In the old night cafe at a quarter past eleven
    The same old man sitting there on his own
    Looking at the world over the rim of his teacup
    Each tea lasts an hour, and he wanders home alone

    So how can you tell me that you're lonely
    And say for you that the sun don't shine
    Let me take you by the hand
    And lead you through the streets of London
    I'll show you something
    To make you change your mind

    Have you seen the old man
    Outside the seaman's mission
    Memory fading with the minor ribands that he wears
    In our city winter the rain cries little pity
    For one more forgotten hero
    And a world which doesn't care

    So how can you tell me you're lonely
    And say for you that the sun don't shine
    Let me take you by the hand
    And lead you through the streets of London
    I'll show you something
    To make you change your mind
