    Me and a Gun is so powerful. Seriously, I have to listen to it sparingly. Girl kicks ass too. Leather too.

    i know what you mean, "me and a gun" just gives me chills. i really have to be in a certain mood to be able to listen to it. also, "i can't see ny"... my god! the cd does not do this justice. let me tell you, even though i am a HUGE toriphile, i am NOT one of those who goes to concerts and cries and just feel all "blessed" or whatever like the people at the beatles or elvis or something. but, when tori did "ny" in chicago a few months ago, it was so incredibly powerful. the lighting.... her voice... was just absolutely haunting. and, i actually did cry. my husband couldn't believe it. i really didn't care for the song that much after hearing it on the cd, but i have a great new appreciation for it now.

    I Can't See NY is probably a song that's feh on CD, but brilliant live.

    I'm glad you're not one that thinks her words are scripture or whatever, either. She's just majorly kickass.

    One of the best songs Tupac ever wrote. The man had a huge heart.

    ~~Keep Ya Head Up by Tupac Shakur~~

    Little something for my god son Elija and a little girl named Koreem

    Some say tha Blacker tha berry
    Tha sweeter tha juice
    I say, tha darker tha flesh and tha deeper tha roots
    I give a hollar to my sisters on welfare
    Tupac cares, but don't nobody else care
    I know they like ta beat ya down a lot
    And when ya come around tha block brothers clown a lot
    But please don't cry, dry ya eyes
    Never let up
    Forgive but don't forget girl keep ya head up
    And when he tells you you ain't nothin
    Don't believe him
    And if he can't learn ta love ya, you should leave him
    Cuz sister you don't need him
    I ain't tryin ta gash up, but I just callem how I see 'em
    Ya know what makes me unhappy
    When brothers make babies
    And leave a young mother ta be a pappy
    And since we all came from a woman
    Got our name from a woman
    And our game from a woman
    I wonder why we take from our women
    Why we rape our women
    Do we hate our women ?
    I think it's time ta kill for our women
    Time ta heal our women
    Be real to our women
    And if we don't
    We'll have a race of babies
    That hate tha ladies that make tha babies
    And since a man can't make one
    He has no right ta tell a woman when and where ta create one
    So will tha real men get up
    I know your fed up ladies
    But keep ya head up

    I remember Marvin Gay, usta sing ta me
    He had me feelin like black was tha thing ta be
    And suddenly tha ghetto didn't seem so tuff
    I thought we had it rough, we always had enough
    I often huffed and puffed about my curfew and broke tha rules
    Ran with tha local crew and had a smoke or two
    And realize momma really paid tha price
    She nearly gave her life, ta raise me right
    And all I had ta give her was my pipe dreams
    Of how i'd rock tha mic and make it to tha big screen
    I'm tryin ta make a dollar out of fifteen cents
    It's hard ta be legit and still pay tha rent
    And in tha end it seems i'm headin for tha penn
    I try and find my friends, but they're blowin in tha wind
    Last night my buddy lost his whole family
    It's gonna take tha man in me
    Ta conquer this insanity
    It seems tha rain will never let up
    I try ta Keep My Head Up and still keep from getting wet up
    You know it's funny when it rains it pours
    They got money for wars, but can't feed tha poor
    Sad there ain't no hope for tha youth and tha truth is
    There ain't no hope for tha future
    And then they wonder why we crazy
    I blame my mother, for turning my brother into a crack baby
    We ain't meant ta survive, cause it's a setup
    And even though ya fed up
    Ya got ta Keep Ya Head Up

    And uhh
    To all the ladies havin babies on they own
    I know it's kinda rough and you're feelin all alone
    Daddy's long gone and he left you by ya lonesome
    Thank the Lord for my kids, even if nobody else want em
    Cause I think we can make it, in fact, I'm sure
    And if you fall, stand tall and comeback for more
    Cause ain't nuttin worse than when your son
    wants to kno why his daddy don't love him no mo'
    You can't complain you was dealt this
    hell of a hand without a man, feelin helpless
    Because there's too many things for you to deal with
    Dying inside, but outside you're looking fearless
    While tears, is rollin down your cheeks
    Ya steady hopin things don't all down this week
    Cause if it did, you couldn't take it, and don't blame me
    I was given this world I didn't make it
    And now my son's getten older and older and cold
    From havin the world on his shoulders
    While the rich kids is drivin Benz
    I'm still tryin to hold on to my survivin friends
    And it's crazy, it seems it'll never let up, but
    please... you got to keep your head up

    I don't think I've ever heard a song by Tupac before. Thanks for posting that one Jodaar. It seemed like a really heartfelt song.
    Iím haunted a little this evening by feelings that have no vocabulary and events that should be explained in dimensions of lint rather than words.

    I'm a big fan of Jewel, and this would have to be one of my most favourite songs. I love to sing along with it.

    Sometimes It Be That Way
    by Jewel

    Night with its shattered teeth attempts to speak
    My pen is present but courage left via the sink
    And I'm sorry I snuck up on you from behind
    Sorry not all my love letters did rhyme
    And I'm sorry that Jesus died for my sins
    And I swear to God it won't happen again
    And I'm sorry if it was my swerve that tempted you to sway
    Oh well, sometimes it be that way
    And Romeo was a very nice man
    He said, "Jewel, I don't think you quite understand"
    And I'm sorry if you had to explain it like this
    Sorry I was a point you were destined to miss
    And I'm sorry I spoke to you irreverently
    Down in the hollow by the old olive tree
    And I'm sorry if my heart breaking ruined your day
    Oh well, sometimes it be that way

    CHORUS
    I said, "Oh well, I got nothing left to sell"
    This love was a bell that rang unheard in the air
    I was bound to find out that you didn't care
    Oh well, sometimes it be that way

    And Aphrodite with her neon lamp
    Kissed Neptune, they put her face on a stamp
    And I'm sorry I used it to mail a letter to you
    Sorry I'm glue and the rest bounces off of you
    And I'm sorry not even this jet's metal wings
    Could get across these simple things
    And I'm sorry if I ever sang your name in vain
    Oh well, sometimes it be that way

    CHORUS

    Now flame licks the air with its silver tongue
    Night has many hands but I have just one
    And I'm sorry I walked in on you unexpectedly
    I'm sorry I never served you chamomile tea
    And I'm sorry I didn't always have a match
    That could start a fire big enough for your heart to catch
    And I'm sorry if it was my heart breaking that ruined your day
    Oh well, sometimes it be that way
    Oh well, sometimes it be that way

    I just love this. There's a lot of music I'd probably never hear because I don't care for the band's style of music. But anyone can appreciate the written word. There's some really great stuff here so far.


    No kidding.
    AWESOME thread! LOVE the Tupac song, he was great. (did you pick up the new album? very good )

    Since I just arrived, I am going to put a couple up. I have so many in my collection, but am going to go for the obscure, rather than main stream.

    SPECIAL TO ME (Phoenix Audition Song)

    (FROM THE 20TH CENTURY FOX FILM "PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE")

    (Lyrics & Music Paul Williams)

    Caught up in your wheelin' dealin' you've got no time left for simple feelin'
    I thought I knew you but I didn't know you at all
    Trapped inside your world of worry you miss so much when you always hurry
    Well slow down baby you'll only get hurt if you fall

    (CH)Well you told me one time that you'd be somebody
    That you weren't workin' just to survive
    But you're workin' so hard that you don't even know you're alive
    Workin' so hard to be somebody special not working just to survive
    Well you're special to me babe but what I don't see babe is
    Where you go once you arrive
    Where we go once we arrive

    Damn all evil that takes possession until your pipe dreams become obsessions
    They scare me baby and we should have nothing to fear
    I'm no child but I can't help wonder it seems like some kind of spell you're under
    You're listnin' baby but somehow you don't really hear

    (repeat CH)

    I had a hard time picking which Jimmy Buffet to post...

    HE WENT TO PARIS

    (Jimmy Buffett)

    He went to Paris looking for answers
    To questions that bothered him so
    He was impressive, young and aggressive
    Saving the world on his own.
    But the warm Summer breezes
    The French wines and cheeses
    Put his ambition at bay
    And Summers and Winters
    Scattered like splinters
    And four or five years slipped away.

    Then he went to England, played the piano
    And married an actress named Kim
    They had a fine life, she was a good wife
    Bore him a young son named Jim.
    And all of the answers and all of the questions
    He locked in his attic one day
    'Cause he liked the quiet clean country living
    And twenty more years slipped away.

    Well the war took his baby, the bombs killed his lady
    And left him with only on eye
    His body was battered, his world was shattered
    And all he could do was just cry.
    While the tears were falling, he was recalling
    The answers he never found
    So he hopped on a freighter, skidded the ocean
    And left England without a sound.

    Now he lives in the islands, fishes the pilin's
    And drinks his green label each day
    He's writing his memoirs and losing his hearing
    But he don't care what most people say.
    Through eighty-six years of perpetual motion
    If he likes you he'll smile then he'll say
    Jimmy, some of it's magic, some of it's tragic
    But I had a good life all the way.

    And he went to Paris looking for answers
    To questions that bother him so.

    if you are into the Parrot head.. here is a great site for his lyrics>>

    THE BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE
    Marilyn Manson

    yep, I like this guys work, believe it or not.. but I won't post it.

    HALLELUJAH
    Rufus Wainwright -

    I've 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
    The minor fall, the major lift
    The baffled king composing Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    Your faith was strong but you needed proof
    You saw her bathing on the roof
    Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
    She tied you
    To a kitchen chair
    She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
    And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    Maybe 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
    love is not a victory march
    Its a cold and its a broken hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    There was a time you'd let me know
    What's real and going on below
    But now you never show it to me do you?
    Remember when I moved in you?
    The holy dark was moving too
    And every breath we drew was hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah

    Maybe there's a God above
    And all I ever learned from love
    was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
    Its not a cry you can hear at night
    Its not somebody who's seen the light
    Its a cold and its a broken hallelujah

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah
    Hallelujah, Hallelujah




    and my list could go on and on and on....
