Whiter Shade Of Pale -Sarah Brightman



is actually an old song.

"subterranean homesick alien" simply because of how it rolls off the tongue.

Procul Harum....classic.

Actually I can't stand it, but I seem to be the only one around here. Harhar.

I forgot 'Take Your Carriage Clock And Shove It', by Belle & Sebastian. Just perfect.

yes, I know it's an older song, by a male artist, but didn not know the name of the original performer, that's why I pointed out Sarah Brightman, whom I don't listen to - just this song. I find it kinda interesting.
And I do love this title - sounds to me somehow mysterious, somehow teasing & provoking the imagination.

in terms of sound: "the king of carrot flowers" has a certain ring to it.

wow, Eddie, how did you manage to get them all together? I usually can think of one or two at a time ...

I have no problems remembering my favourite titles, favourite names, favourite quotes, or favourite lines from songs.

I am quite obsessive with quoting song lines in daily life's conversations, and analysing lyrics is a long-term passion of mine that resulted in knowing many by heart. I also keep lists of all those things, I thought I'd never ever use those lists for something good but now am about to upload them to my website so you see you always find a use for worthless things :)

I guess remembering all those things like an encyclopaedia is something typical Aspergic as well. Some people call us "idiots savants" = "educated idiots", pointing at our big knowledge of facts and good memory but also to out hopelessly clumsy social behaviour :unsure:




Anyway, back on topic. One that I think wasn't mentionned yet:

"A l'ouest d'Oost-Vliedland" by a goth act of whom I forgot the name :ph34r:

It means "east of Oost-Vliedland" while Oost-Vliedland is a Dutch-sounding name of an imaginary island. The whole idea of an imaginary place forming the decor of a sung story, appealed to me that much that it inspired me for an own poem (I named one of my poems Oost-Vliedland as well, though the original song is instrumental so no one can blame me for copying lyrics, I only got inspired by the title but made up the poem myself)

can't believe I forgot "Angel Angel Down We Go Together" by Moz earlier... Sounds romantic and doomy at the same time, absolutely great title!

Also, the Arctic Monkeys may not be the greatest band on earth IMHO, but ...
"Red Light Indicates Doors Are Secured"
"You Probably Couldn't See For the Lights But You Were Staring Straight at Me"
Class :D

I also started to like "3 Libras" by A Perfect Circle a lot since discovering the meaning of the song. Like a mystery declared, but without losing its charm.
