The unfortunate answer is...No

To me this is not boring at all, then again I'm a boring person so who knows

There's nothing to the left of me
There's nothing to the right of me

It has not for quite a while, that can be discovered by reading the boards FAQ.

Actually it does not suck as people were coming in and posting silly stuff in this area just to get their "50 posts."

For my above song it was an Irish "no hit wonder" band from the 80's, the only known article written about them was that they were the next U2.

Since I don't want to kill this thread with those lines I can offer two more clues.

BTW I was not sure if people were Google searching the lyrics...SO I googled both the lyrics and the band and came up with nothing.... are I not a pain? Smile

Here is the first line to the ONLY song that I know ALL the words to.

"Wish I was a Kellogg's Cornflake, floatin' in my bowl takin' movies. Relaxin' awhile, livin' in style. Talkin' to a raisin who occacionaly plays LA. Casualy glancin' at his toupe" Smile

Yes Mark, you're right, it is Simon & Garfunkel. It is on the Bookends album.

How bout this

If I were a carpenter Id hammer on my piglet, Id
collect the 7 dollars and Id buy a big prosthetic
forehead and wear it on my real head.

Everybody wants prosthetic foreheads on their real heads

Someone in this town is trying to burn the playhouse down. They want to stop the ones who want prosthetic foreheads on their heads.

This one was done with a sarcastic tongue in cheek by a well known entertainer:


I heard from a friend, you been messin around
with that cute little thing I been dating uptown
I don't know if I like that idea much
you better stay clear I might start acting rough

you outa town guys sure think you real keen
you think all of us boys here are homespun and green
but you're wrong my friend so get this through your head
we're tough and we're Texan with necks good and red

So its Ki Yi Yipee Aye Aye
You long hairs are sure goona die
Our American home was clean til you came
and kids still respected the presidential name
and eagles still flew in the sky
hearts filled with national pride
then you came along with your drug present songs
G***amnit you're all gonna die!

How dare you sit there and drink all our beer
its made for us workers who work sweat and swear
the minds of our daughters are poisoned by you
with your communistic politics and your Negro blues
well I'm gonna quit talking and take action now
run all of you fairies clean out of this town
Oh I'm dogtired of watching you mess up our lives
spending a summertime naturally high

So its Ki Yi Yipee Aye Aye
You long hairs are sure goona die
Our American home was clean til you came
and kids still respected the presidential name
and eagles still flew in the sky
hearts filled with national pride
then you came along with your drug present songs
G***amnit you're all gonna die!

Some things shouldnt be said even tongue in cheek!

"with your communistic politics and your Negro blues"

I hope this person was actually mocking people who say stuff like this! But to read it you wouldnt know! Sounds like they really think that way!
ask harry why he dont want people to know he makes $200 a month for all these ads! thats like $4000 a month! oh but SHHH! harry isnt a real person!

I'll throw you all for a loop.

" Don't go near the water children, see the fish all dead upon the shore.

Don't go near the water, cause the water isn't water anymore.

From the fountains and the mountains, comes the water running cool and clear and blue.

And it comes down from the hills, and it goes down to the towns and passes through,

when it gets down to the cities then the water turns into a dirty gray,

Cause it's poisoned and polluted by the people as it goes along it's way."

Got you all stumped?

Cruise,
I disagree. I think some things are best said tongue in cheek. "All in the Family" was a sit-com that did so much for civil rights in this country and the star was this bigotted ignoramous named Archie Bunker. He was racist, didn't respect his wife, and had an appalling lack of social concienciousness. He got people talking about racism, women's rights and civil rights in general. It really moved this country forward.

The song I quoted was released during this time period. To put it in context, It was performed by a flamboyant, gay rock star. To hear this guy singing about red necks running all the 'fairies clean out of this town' was clearly a shot at bigotry. Satire can be a very sharp sword.

Any guesses as to the artist? Hint: he is still performing, raises a ton of money to fight aids, and was listed in the recent Rolling Stone article on the top 50 rock stars of all time.
