Re: Game *Name That Tune*

I'm guessing this is the BMarley...and I can never remember the titles of his songs

I don't think its No Woman, No Cry

Re: Game *Name That Tune*

It is Bob Marley. It's unfortunate that the two big compilations of his work widely available in the States, Legend and Exodus, are missing so many of his best works. They were assembled to feature as many love songs and party songs as possible, and create an image of Marley as a laid-back pot smoking hippie who loved to party and womanize, when in fact he was a deeply driven ideological revolutionary, who supposedly was unwaveringly faithful to his wife Rita, he smoked pot as a religious obsevance but enjoyed getting a community together for some fun making music and dancing, and he had nothing against alcohol when enjoyed responsibly. I don't agree with everything he had to say, but a lot of his best songs are angry, and don't appear on those two compilation albums.

[/rant

The name of that song is Redemtion Song, and it appears on the compilation Exodus.

When bought through the astore, they also help support this site, which isn't self-sufficient and doesn't hold fund-raisers or any of that other crap.

Please consider doing at least some of your holiday shopping through our astore this year.

Re: Game *Name That Tune*

I heard this the other day and couldn't wait to post the lyrics here. So, I'm jumping in:

I recall the yellow cotton dress
Foaming like a wave
On the ground beneath your knees
The birds like tender babies in your hands
And the old men playing chinese checkers by the trees

Re: Game *Name That Tune*

Here's a clue:

The name of the tune is a location in Los Angeles, CA.

A smaller area. But, it happens to be the "center-point" of a neighborhood.

Sorry, no clue.

Those lyrics are from "specifically" the Donna Summer version of MacArthur Park. Which, isn't that far from my downtown L.A. office.

Someone else can go.

Re: Game *Name That Tune*

originally by Richard Harris, the actor - song trivia.

jumping in. sadly this song is applicable lately:

It goes down the same as the thousand before
No one's getting smarter no one's learning the score
Your never-ending spree of death and violence, and hate
Is gonna tie your own rope, tie your own rope, tie your own
