Title: Name That Tune!
Post by: MrNate on September 10, 2010, 05:48:55 PM
A friend of mine has a thread on FB like this, but it's not as much fun without quoting. Here's the game: I post an archaic version of a song's lyrics. If you recognize it, quote it and name the song. Then write your own archaic version of any other song lyrics. Lather, rinse, repeat.

It's better if you come up with your own, but if you have to find some on the interwebz I won't think you less of a man. Well, maybe a little.

Ready? Begin!

Here we go:

I find a window in the kitchen, and I let myself in
Rummage through the refrigerator, find myself a beer
I can't believe I'm really here, and she's lying in that bed
I can almost feel her touch, and her anxious breath!

"The group, for which I am acting as spokesman, hails predominantly from the arctic regions, a place subject to polar night and its inverse phenomenom, but happily is possessed of some pleasant tourist-friendly geothermal bodies of water.  Our transport vessels are driven, they tell me, by something called "mjollnir", and I gather the group is intent on waging some sort of combat of sorts with another large group of individuals, with a sort of musical number they like to do during battle about the afterlife or some such thing, according to their superstitions."

Lady Gaga?  I was in a hotel in Germany last year, and after I got tired of trying to translate the German TV on the fly I put on MTV.  I don't remember the name of the song, but it was on high rotation.  Bad Romance maybe?

I think when people figure out the song, they should include the real lyrics so we don't have to try to figure it out.  In my case I think those are the actual lyrics.

I'm going to see Roger Waters perform The Wall next month.  I still kick myself for not going to see Floyd do that in 1980.  It would have been a three hour drive but I was in high school -- what else would I have done with my time?

I hear it's a killer show.

One of these days I am going to cut you into little pieces.

One of These Days, Pink Floyd.  By far the best jam song they do (did) in concert.

OK, here's one:

And if your house gets in my way, you know I'll burn it down.
I vaguely remember a Pink Floyd concert in 1973.  Probably Dark Side of the Moon.  That whole decade is still pretty blurry.

Here's a classic...

Living easy, living free
Season ticket on a one-way ride
Asking nothing, leave me be
Taking everything in my stride...


I'm presently on a thoroughfare to the infernal regions.

Highway to Hell

I'm curious if anyone will recognize this without searching the web:

Then according to the man who showed his outstretched arm to space,
He turned around and pointed, revealing all the human race.
I shook my head and smiled a whisper, knowing all about the place.

Whenst we initially engaged, I did not envision.
I cannot let you slip from memory, I still marvel the miracle.
you commenced me, to my congnitive self. 
and left me to aspire, for more of your character.

when I first met you, didn't realize...
I cannot let you slip from memory, I still marvel the miracle.
I cant forget you, or your surprise.
you commenced me, to my congnitive self. 
you introduced me, to my mind
and left me to aspire, for more of your character. 
and left me wanting you and your kind

 ... ohh ..  lord yeah.
