Hmmm. Makes me realize that my taste in music leans toward things where the lyrics are not (to me) an important part of the composition, or which are strictly instrumental. (In classical music, I greatly prefer pipe organ and symphonies to opera.)


"Vincent", from Don McLean


"Through the Dark", from K T Tunstall


"Wrote a Song For Everyone", from John Fogerty

New theme: Three songs that act as poetry, or lyrics can be read as poetry. If you like, post the lyrics too, or link to them. 



#1: "Eleanor Rigby" by The Beatles - As poignant a story of unrequited love as you're likely to find.





#2: "So Far from the Clyde" by Mark Knopfler - A beautiful, heart-twisting elegy. The fact that it's for a ship makes it even more awesome.

New Topic: Three songs with great bass lines.

There is an alternate universe somewhere in the multiverse where I lead a band named Gigawatt Subwoofers ("Death by infrasonics").



Passacaglia and Fugue in C minor, by J. S. Bach


The Launch and Cool the Engines from Boston's Third Stage. Takes a minute before the bass starts.


The immortal Tuba Smarties from Sky, Herbie Flowers on the eponymous instrument. Tristan Fry (nominally the drummer) is the trumpeter who fluffs his opening notes badly.
