    Default Songs that affect you.

    Music means more than just words;some song's have got that mmmm that gets you thinking.This is mine.
    Tell Me There's A Heaven
    Chris Rea

    The little girl she said to me
    What are these things that I can see
    Each night when I come home from school
    When mama calls me in for tea
    On every night a baby dies
    And every night a mama cries
    What makes those men do what they do
    To make the person black and blue

    Grandpa say's they're happy now
    They sit with god in paradise
    With angels wings and still somehow
    It makes me feel
    Like ice

    Tell me there's a heaven
    Tell that it's true
    Tell me there's a reason
    Why I'm seeing what I do
    Tell me there's a heaven
    Where all those people go
    Tell me that there happy now
    Papa tell me that it's so.

    So do I tell her that it's true
    That there's a place for me and you
    Where hungry children smile and say
    We wouldn't have no other way
    That every painfull crack of bone
    Is a step along the way
    That every wrong done is a game plan
    To the great and joyfull day
    And I'm looking and the father and the son
    And I'm looking at the mother and the daughter
    And I'm watching them in tears and pain
    And I'm watching them suffer
    Dont tell that little girl
    Tell me

    Tell me there's a heaven...

    What's yours?

    Biffy Clyro are a big influence on life to me. There music lyrics mean a hell of a lot to me. Reason why i have there logo tattoo'd on my arm.

    Quite recently found a band Called Faulter ( http://myspace.com/faulter )
    there lyrics are pritty awesome, favourite one's would have to be October 16th though.

    all at once it seemed so easy
    the way to make this right
    just to let myself feel these things
    and say what's on my mind
    so i let my guard down
    and it seems not for the best
    i guess i do the right things
    at all the wrong times
    and stand to pay the price

    cause i waited much too long
    or just said something wrong
    and i miss you

    but you're not giving in
    i missed it
    and better luck is on my wish list
    maybe that's why i'm alive
    i'm not giving up on this yet
    another time it might be different
    if anything that's why i'm alive

    if i'd just said something sooner
    then maybe this could start
    but at the time i couldn't see this coming
    or how it'd fall apart
    you can slow it down
    and you can buy more time
    but it comes around
    and then you change your mind too late

    there's nothing left to say about it now

    Having known Simon Neil for several years, it's a bit weird to hear people say he's such a big influence on their life. A bit like saying I live my life according to the teachings and insightful posts by Jeid. I played on the same bill as Biffy Clyro once back in the early days - never thought they'd amount to much. Who's laughing now? You may well ask...

    I've listened to them for years now and they are a great band, the best thing probably being their vocal harmonies.
    Obviously their musicianship is fantastic, just they are so good at 3-way harmonies.
    Each to their own though.

    Got to be The Macc Lads for me.

    "Beer & Sex & Chips & Gravy" brings a tear to my glass eye, and the subtle nuances of "Fluffy Pup" makes me weep uncontrollably. Tears! Real tears! Tears of Truth!

    LOL.

    I think one of the most beautiful sad songs ever is "One More Time" written by Richard Marx. Click on the first link to hear Richard singing it, and on the second to hear Laura Pausini's version. Russell Watson also sings it on his new album, "Outside In", but I can't find a sample of that. All three versions are absolutely gorgeous, and I am moved every time!

    One More Time

    Nothing I must do
    Nowhere I should be
    No one in my life
    To answer to but me

    No more candlelight
    No more purple skies
    No one to be near
    As my heart slowly dies

    If I could hold you one more time
    like in the days when you where mine
    I'd look at you 'till I was blind
    So you would stay

    I'd say a prayer each time you'd smile
    Cradle the moments like a child
    I'd stop the world if only I
    Could hold you one more time

    (hmmmmmm)

    I've memorized your face
    I know your touch by heart
    Still lost in your embrace
    I'd dream of where you are

    [music break]

    (hmmm)

    If I could hold you one more time
    Like in the days when you were mine
    I'd look at you 'till I was blind
    So you would stay

    I'd say a prayer each time you'd smile
    Cradle the moments like a child
    I'd stop the world if only I
    Could hold you one more time
    I am living for today, always remembering yesterday, and looking forward to tomorrow!

    Mozart: - Opera: The Magic Flute - Aria: Queen of the night

    The very high notes are just sublime in the chorus.

    There are too many too mention, but I'll just thrown one in for good measure, when it came out the whole feel of it and the lyrics I thought were beautiful.

    "Consideration" by REEF

    The lyrics themself are pretty sparse but its the whole feel of the sing you need to listen to it to know what I mean.

    I don't think that kindness is a weakness,
    I don't have a problem with compassion,
    Tell me what you're thinking?
    Would you like to be so high?

    Could you give consideration to something that you did not realise?
    Would you close your ears to the things you did not believe?

    Tell me would you be strong?
    Would you be the one to carry on?
    Tell me would you be strong?
    Would you be one to carry on.

    Half don't come here, half don't come here,
    Half don't come here, so I do.
    It's gonna be alright.

    Words in songs are wonderfull in their own right but as Jeemag say's by incorporating certain music it makes for one memorable experience.

    "Tell me there's a Heaven" is sung to music that has a certain classical feel to it.
    Still brings a tear to my eye,even after all these years.

    Too true, might surprise some poeple but I also think Robbie Williams wrote some fantastic songs on his first couple albums. Angels in particular was a classic!

    The Song that effects me, has to be the Proclaimers "Sunshine on Leith", its a very poignant song for me, Leith is now my adopted home, where my sons were brought up, I married a Leither. And no matter where I am when I hear this song, I am back in Leith.
    And it is also one of the anthems for my local football team.

    LOL.
    They never moved me (how could they with lines like "Hey hey with the mac lads we're not a bunch of queers") but they did steel a mixing desk off me.
    They break our legs and we say "thank you" when they offer us crutches!!!

    This is another beautiful song that touches my heart every time I hear it. "Home" by Michael Bublť.....

    Another summer day
    Has come and gone away
    In Paris and Rome
    But I wanna go home
    Mmmmmmmm

    Maybe surrounded by
    A million people I
    Still feel all alone
    I just wanna go home
    Oh, I miss you, you know

    And Iíve been keeping all the letters that I wrote to you
    Each one a line or two
    ďIím fine baby, how are you?Ē
    Well I would send them but I know that itís just not enough
    My words were cold and flat
    And you deserve more than that

    Another aeroplane
    Another sunny place
    Iím lucky I know
    But I wanna go home
    Mmmm, Iíve got to go home

    Let me go home
    Iím just too far from where you are
    I wanna come home

    And I feel just like Iím living someone elseís life
    Itís like I just stepped outside
    When everything was going right
    And I know just why you could not
    Come along with me
    'Cause this was not your dream
    But you always believed in me

    Another winter day has come
    And gone away
    In even Paris and Rome
    And I wanna go home
    Let me go home

    And Iím surrounded by
    A million people I
    Still feel all alone
    Oh, let me go home
    Oh, I miss you, you know

    Let me go home
    Iíve had my run
    Baby, Iím done
    I gotta go home
    Let me go home
    It will all be all right
    Iíll be home tonight
