The most perfect imagery EVER in a song-----it provided inspiration for the story Zara

On a morning from a Bogart movie
 In a country where they turn back time
 You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre
 Contemplating a crime

She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running
 Like a watercolor in the rain
 Don't bother asking for explanations
 She'll just tell you that she came

In the year of the cat

She doesn't give you time for questions
 As she locks up your arm in hers
 And you follow till your sense of which direction
 Completely disappears

By the blue tiled walls near the market stalls
 There's a hidden door she leads you to
 These days, she says, "I feel my life
 Just like a river running through"

The year of the cat

Why she looks at you so coolly?
 And her eyes shine like the moon in the sea
 She comes in incense and patchouli
 So you take her, to find what's waiting inside

The year of the cat

Well morning comes and you're still with her
 And the bus and the tourists are gone
 And you've thrown away your choice and lost your ticket
 So you have to stay on

But the drumbeat strains of the night remain
 In the rhythm of the new-born day
 You know sometime you're bound to leave her
 But for now you're going to stay

In the year of the cat

Al Stewart--The Year of the Cat

Thanks to Alan Parson for the serious brilliance of adding the sax.

Welch Wench:  Al Stewart is one of the very best artist IMO in regards to writing songs with fantastic imagery.  Check out "Roads to Moscow", it's on YouTube.  Great song, fantastic lyrics.

 I was just listening to  'Roads to Moscow' last week.  I have his greatest hits on CD.

IMHO the two best songs he wrote were Year of the Cat and The Palace of Versailles, though Time Passages still makes me get teary.

I toured the palace on vacation in the 80's.  this song just kept running through my head.


"The Palace Of Versailles"

The wands of smoke are rising
From the walls of the Bastille
And through the streets of Paris
Runs a sense of the unreal
The Kings have all departed
Their servants are nowhere
We burned out all their mansions
In the name of Robespierre
And still we wait
To see the day begin
Our time is wasting in the wind
Wondering why
Wondering why, it echoes
Through the lonely palace of Versailles

Inside the midnight councils
The lamps are burning low
On you sit and talk all through the night
But there's just no place to go
And Bonaparte is coming
With his army from the South
Marat your days are numbered
And we live hand to mouth
While we wait
To see the day begin
Our time is wasting in the wind
Wondering why

Wondering why, it echoes
Through the lonely palace of Versailles

The ghost of revolution
Still prowls the Paris streets
Down all the restless centuries
It wonders incomplete
It speaks inside the cheap red wine
Of cafe summer nights
Its red and amber voices
Call the cars at traffic lights

Why do you wait
To see the day begin
Your time is wasting in the wind
Wondering why
Wondering why, it echoes
Through the lonely palace of Versailles

Wondering why, it echoes
Through the lonely palace of Versailles

Evil Woman by ELO comes close to picture imagery too.

I always felt it would be great set in the Old West.  :)

I can't listen to ELO. Jeff Lynne drives me crazy. Almost everything he produces sounds the same, even the two Beatles tunes he produced for the Anthology sounded more like ELO than the Beatles to me.

I  bought my ticket for the long way round. The one with the prettiest of view.  It's got mountains, it's got rivers,  it's got sights to make you shiver,  but it sure would be prettier with you.

 When I'm gone... when I'm gone.
 You're gonna miss me when I'm gone.

This song came on when driving home from work.  Forgot how much I liked Journey back in the day.


Opened my eyes to a new kind of way
All the good times that you saved
Are you feeling, you feeling that way too
Or am I just, am I just a fool?

When the summer's gone
She'll be there standing by the light
Once she's been to where she's gone to
She should know wrong from right
Is she feeling?

Are you feeling, you feeling that way too
Or am I just, am I just a fool?

A new road's waiting, you touched my life
Soft and warm on a summer's night
You're the only one, I told you, the only one I love
The lovely one I'm thinking of

When the summer's gone
She'll be there standing by the light
Once she's been to where she's gone to
She should know wrong from right
Is she feeling?

Are you feeling, you feeling that way too
Oh yeah yeah yeah
Feeling that way?

When the summer's gone
She'll be there standing by the light
Once she's been to where she's gone to
She should know wrong from right
Is she feeling?

Is she feeling
Feeling that way?
Feeling that way
Feeling that way
Feeling that way
Feeling that way


Ooh, anytime that you want me
Ooh, anytime that you need me

Ooh, anytime that you want me to
Ooh, anytime that you need me

I'm standing here with my arms a mile wide
I'm hoping and praying for you
Listen to me and enlighten me, yeah
I hope that you need me too, 'cause

Ooh, anytime that you want me
Ooh, anytime that you need me

Give me all of your sunshine
A spark is all I need
To take it away, all of the shadows
Well, what more can I say yeah, yeah

Oh, anytime at all
Anytime at all
Anytime at all

Ooh, anytime that you want me
Ooh, anytime that you need me

Ooh, anytime that you want me to
Ooh, anytime that you want me

Ooh, anytime that you need me
Ooh, anytime that you want me to



OMG Wolfman!!  ;D

Really liking this right now... 

Lift Me Up

I still haven't decided whether I think the message is positive or negative... but it's definitely defiant!

I noticed a couple of fairly decent technical guitar solos in there, as well.

What a great kiss-off song!

Your clothes out on the blacktop
Scattered suits on the street
Frames and broken pictures in the mid september heat
We set these nights on fire
So hot we burned it down
Now all thats left of us is ashes on the ground

See I told you back in June
You knew damn well what I would do

365, days you've been making me wait
So keep your two- timing games
It's a lot of to late
The summers Over, over, over
Over, over, over

Drop your keys from six stories,
Shout out, "It's raining green,"
Don't tell lies in heaven or an angel will get mean,
Diamonds and white gold watches,
Watch how fast they will soar,
You always say you wanted to give back to the poor,

I told you back in June,
You knew damn well what I would do,

365 days, you've been making me wait,
So keep your two-timing games,
It's a lot of too late,
The summer's over,
Over, over,
Over, over, over,

I won't be your debutante,
Won't be the fool to your savant,
I can't fix your cracked-up dreams,
While the leaves fall off these trees,
I won't spend the winter nights,
Holding on to what ain't right,
You might break your words real fast,
But mine are made to last,

365 days, you've been making me wait,
So keep your two-timing games,
It's a lot of too late,
The summer's over,
Over, over,
Over, over, over,

365 days, you've been making me wait,
So keep your two-timing games,
It's a lot of too late,
The summer's over,
Over, over,
Over, over, over now,
Over now

LAKESIDE
Fantastic Voyage Lyrics

Hey, come on, come along take a ride
There's a party over there, that ain't no jive
It's live, live, it's all the way live
Don't even have to walk, don't even have to drive
Just slide, glide, slippity-slide
Just forget about your troubles and your 9 to 5
And just sail on (That's what you do), just sail on
Now this groove's so funky, hey, what to you think
What is it called, let's call it Lakeside stank

Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage

I'm the captain (Spleen) of this vessel
We wanna take you on a cruise
All around the land, music is at hand (Huh)
We wanna play it for you

(You see) We want to be (We want to be)
Your crew of entertainers (Jam to the music)
Jam to the beat (Jam, yeah)
Don't let nothing restrain you (Uh-huh)

We just want you to feel
Nothing but pleasure (Pleasure), musical pleasure (Yeah, yeah)
Our music is very real (It's really real)
Truly a treasure (A treasure), musical treasure

Come along, pack your bags
Get on up and jam y'all
Come on and ride on the funk, y'all

Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage

We're the directors of this groove ship
And you are under our command, yeah
What you should do is take a listen, too
So you can understand

(You know) We like to see (People havin' a good time)
Everybody happy (Do you wanna party)
We create the beat (That foot stompin' music)
That keeps the people dancin' (Uh-huh)

We just want you to feel (We just want you to feel)
Nothing but pleasure, musical pleasure (Want you to feel)
‘Cause music is a world of fantasy (It's a fantasy)
Let's live it together (A pleasure), musical pleasure (Come along, come along, come along)
So come along beyond the sea
(Dance in the sunshine) Take a load off of your mind
Our music is very real (So very real)
Truly a treasure, musical treasure

Come along, pack your bags
Get on up and jam y'all
Come on and ride on the funk, y'all

Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage
(Come along, ride the boat, hey bring it on me)
To the Land of Funk
Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage
(Do you wanna ride with me)
Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage
(Do you wanna go, ah)
To the Land of Funk, Funk, Funk
To the Land of Funk, to the Land of Funk, to the Land of Funk

Hey, come on, come along take a ride
There's a party over there, that ain't no jive
It's live, live, it's all the way live
Don't even have to walk, don't even have to drive
Just slide, glide, slippity-slide
Just forget about your troubles and your 9 to 5
And just sail on (That's what you do), just sail on
Now the groove's so funky, hey, what to you think
What is it called, let's call it Lakeside stank

If you're ready to party and you wanna get down
Bring your ma, your pa, and brother James Brown
Bring Auntie Em and Toto too
And all the party people to do their do
We'll dance and party till the early light
And say, “Hey, we're feelin' alright”
So come along, come on take a ride
There's a party over there, that ain't no lie
We're leavin' here in a cloud of smoke
And th-th-that-th-th-that-th-th-that's all folks

Whoa, whoa, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

We just want you to feel (We just want you to feel)
Nothing but pleasure, musical pleasure (Want you to feel)
‘Cause music is a world of fantasy
Let's live it together (Together), musical pleasure (We want you to feel)
So come along beyond your seat (Come along beyond the seat)
(Dance in the sunshine) Take a load off of your mind (Yeah...)
Our music is very real (So very real)
Truly a treasure, musical treasure

Hurry up
Pack your bags and jam y'all
Come on and ride on the funk now

Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage
(Do you wanna go, do you wanna go, do you wanna go, do you wanna go)
Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage
(Come-a, come-a, come-a, come on, come on now to the Land of Funk)
(Do you wanna party, do you wanna jam)
To the Land of Funk
Come along and ride on a fantastic voyage

Damn hell, the girl can really wail the blues!


Oh, please, please, please
Quit dragging my heart through them coals,
Oh, please, please, please,
Stop trying to fix it 'cause, baby, it's broke,
When it's late at night and you call me,
'Cause I've got another man fixing my blues,
You should never, never worry 'bout nothing, baby,
'Cause I'll never love someone new the way I love you,

And every word I say to you feels like I'm screaming out a bunch of whispers,
And every word you say to me is like a beesting or leaving blisters,
There ain't no honey left in this heart,
There ain't no sugar nowhere inside,
I hate to love ya, I love to hate ya,
I just can't shake you,

Oh, please, please, please,
Quit dragging my heart through them coals,
Oh, please, please, please,
Stop trying to fix it 'cause, baby, it's broke,
When it's late at night and you call me,
'Cause I've got another man fixing my blues,
You should never, never worry 'bout nothing, baby,
'Cause I'll never love someone new the way I love you,

You're the static, just enough dramatic,
Shock, you drive me crazy,
Ain't no man could take your place,
You know it, baby,
But I just can't stand you, so it's got to end,

There ain't no honey left in this heart,
There ain't no sugar nowhere inside,
I hate to love ya, I love to hate ya,
I just can't shake you,

Baby, when you want me, when you crave me, when you need it,
If you ain't got the time to save me when I'm falling, then just beat it,
'Cause, boy, I can't be your medicine, your ritalin when you're fiending,
If you won't be my knight in shining when I'm crying, when I'm screaming,

Oh, please, please, please,
Quit dragging my heart through them coals,
Oh, please, please, please,
Stop trying to fix it 'cause, baby, it's broke,
When it's late at night and you call me,
'Cause I've got another man fixing my blues,
You should never, never worry 'bout nothing, baby,
'Cause I'll never love someone new the way I love you

I'm a country girl, I ain't seen a lot,
But you came along and my heart went POP!
You took a little street car to my heart,
And an apple of love fell off my apple cart!
You looked at me, my heart began to pound,
You weren't the sort of guy I thought would stick around,
Hey, but it don't have to be eternally;
My bad, bad Angel put the Devil in me!

You put the Devil in me...

You lured me in with your cold grey eyes,
Your simple smile and your bewitching lies;
One and one and one is three,
My bad, bad Angel... the Devil and me!

You put the Devil in me...
You put the Devil in me!
You put the Devil in me!

My bad, bad Angel, you put the Devil in me!

So, now my dear, I aint the girl you knew,
'Cause the Angel's got Heaven, but I get you;
And the tree of life grows tall, you see,
My bad, bad Angel - you put the Devil in me!

Oh... you put the Devil in me!
You put the Devil in me!
You put the Devil in me...
You put the Devil in... me!

My bad, bad Angel... you put the Devil in me!
