And... the lyrics to today's song:

ARLINGTON - Trace Atkins

I never thought that this is where i'd settle down,

I thought i'd die an old man back in my hometown,

They gave me this plot of land, me and some other men, for a job well done,

there's a big white house sits on a hill just up the road,

the man inside he cried the day they brought me home,

they folded up a flag and told my mom and dad, we're proud of your son

Chorus:

And I'm proud to be on this peaceful peace of property,

I'm on sacred ground and i'm in the best of company,

I'm thankful for those thankful for the things i've done,

I can rest in peice, I'm one of the chosen ones, I made it to Arlington

I remember daddy brought me here when I was eight,

we searched all day to find out where my granddad lay,

and when we finally found that cross,

he said, "son this is what it cost to keep us free" Now here I am,

a thousand stones away from him,

he reconized me on the first day I came in,

and it gave me a chill when he clicked his heels, and saluted me.

(Repeat Chorus)

and everytime I hear twenty-one guns,

I know they brought another hero home to us

we're thankful for those thankful for the things we've done,

we can rest in peace, 'cause we are the chosen ones,

we made it to arlington, yea dust to dust,

don't cry for us, we made it to Arlington

Killing Me Softly

Roberta Flack

Strumming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

Killing me softly with his song

Killing me softly with his song

Telling my whole life with his words.

Killing me softly with his song.

I heard he sang a good song

I heard he had a style

And so I came to see him

And listen for a while.

And there he was this young boy

A stranger to my eyes.

Strumming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

Killing me softly with his song

Killing me softly with his song

Telling my whole life with his words.

Killing me softly with his song.

I felt all flushed with fever

Embarrassed by the crowd.

I felt he found my letters

And read each one out loud.

I prayed that he would finish

But he just kept right on.

Strumming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

Killing me softly with his song

Killing me softly with his song

Telling my whole life with his words.

Killing me softly with his song.

He sang as if he knew me

In all my dark despair.

And then he looked right through me

As if I wasn't there.

And he just kept on singing

Singing clear and strong.

Strumming my pain with his fingers

Singing my life with his words

Killing me softly with his song

Killing me softly with his song

Telling my whole life with his words.

Killing me softly with his song.

JohnO makes his presence felt.

I just love this song... the mournful melody and the sorrowful lyrics... the video is filmed exquisitely... haunting song...

LYRICS: LIFE AIN'T ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL - sung by Gary Allen

Life ain't always beautiful

Sometimes it's just plain hard.

Life can knock you down,

It can break your heart.

Life ain't always beautiful:

You think you're on your way.

And it's just a dead end road,

At the end of the day.

But the struggles make you stronger,

And the changes make you wise.

And happiness has it's own way,

Of takin' it's sweet time.

No, life aint always beautiful.

Tears will fall sometimes.

Life aint always beautiful,

But it's a beautiful ride.

Life aint always beautiful:

Some days, I miss your smile.

I get tired of walkin' all,

These lonely miles.

And I wish for just one minute,

I could see your pretty face.

Guess I can dream,

But life dont work that way.

But the struggles make me stronger,

And the changes make me wise.

And happiness has it's own way,

Of takin' it's sweet time.

No, life aint always beautiful.

But I know I'll be fine.

Hey, life ain't always beautiful,

But it's a beautiful ride.

What a beautiful ride.

Mornin' gang! Happy Monday!

Muzza, I'm LMAO at that one... thinking that if Team Tunes fails to win this round, TOMMY might dismantle and sign some high-priced-talent... wink

OK... for the early risers:

TODAY'S LYRIC:

Perfume came naturally from Paris (naturally)

For cars she couldn't care less

Fastidious and precise

Start you work week with a point? laugh

And... the lyrics:

KILLER QUEEN - performed by QUEEN

She keeps her Moet et Chandon

In her pretty cabinet

'Let them eat cake' she says

Just like Marie Antoinette

A built-in remedy

For Kruschev and Kennedy

At anytime an invitation

You can't decline

Caviar and cigarettes

Well versed in etiquette

Extraordinarily nice

She's a Killer Queen

Gunpowder, gelatine

Dynamite with a laserbeam

Guaranteed to blow your mind

Anytime

Ooh, recommended at the price

Insatiable an appetite

Wanna try ?

To avoid complications

She never kept the same address

In conversation

She spoke just like a baroness

Met a man from China

Went down to Geisha Minah

(killer, killer, she's a Killer Queen)

Then again incidentally

If you're that way inclined

Perfume came naturally from Paris (naturally)

For cars she couldn't care less

Fastidious and precise

She's a Killer Queen

Gunpowder, gelatine

Dynamite with a laser beam

Guaranteed to blow your mind

Anytime

Drop of a hat she's as willing as

Playful as a pussy cat

Then momentarily out of action

Temporarily out of gas

To absolutely drive you wild, wild..

She's all out to get you

She's a Killer Queen

Gunpowder, gelatine

Dynamite with a laser beam

Guaranteed to blow your mind

Anytime

Ooh, recommended at the price

Insatiable an appetite

Wanna try ?

You wanna try...

Come Tuesday, will someone knock the bowler from TOMMY's head or will you allow him and TEAM TUNES to continue on their roll?

JohnO, I'm going to let you have it because they did indeed record it in a distinct fashion. Nobody quite like Axl Rose 'n Slash, but the version I was seeking was the original, by Nazareth. When I think GNR, I think "Welcome to the Jungle" or "Paradise City"...

Nazareth's only big hit, "Love Hurts" was not a typical cut... "Hair of the Dog", from the LP of the same name, was the definitive Nazareth!

And... the lyrics:

HAIR OF THE DOG - Nazareth

Heart-breaker Soul-shaker I've been told about you

Steam-roller The midnight shoulder

What they been sayin' must be true

PRECHORUS:

Red hot mama Oh that charmer

Time's come to pay your dues

CHORUS:

Now you're messin' with a A SON OF A BITCH

Now you're messin' with a son of a bitch

Now you're messin' with a A SON OF A BITCH

Now you're messin' with a son of a bitch

Talking jive and poison ivy

You ain't gonna cling to me

Minute-taker Fall-faker

I ain't so blind I can't see

PRECHORUS:

Red hot mama Oh that charmer

Time's come to pay your dues

CHORUS:

Now you're messin' with a A SON OF A BITCH

Now you're messin' with a son of a bitch

Now you're messin' with a A SON OF A BITCH

Now you're messin' with a son of a bitch

"How were the punk covers?"

OK....some were really good, I thought ("New Rose", the Misfits' "Attitude"), some were awful (the UK Subs' "Down On The Farm"....Axl sings in a dreadful Brit accent), and most were just so-so (Dead Boys' "Ain't It Fun", Johnny T's "You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory", etc.). Like the last Def Leppard CD, it's an enjoyable listen, just to hear what they do to some of the old classics.

No I didn't. I just read about them playing there the other day. I was thinking about going. If you somehow have access to tickets please keep me in mind. I understand Patti Smith will be playing there also but the Dictators are the band that could gat me to CBGB's again after all these years (decades). I also heard that Adny is no longer in the band. Supposedly he and the Handsome One had a falling out. Is that true?
