Ohrwürmer #2

(der) Ohrwurm: [pl. (die) Ohrwürmer, Ohrwuermer], noun, German word for music that currently sticks to one's head


It's once again high time to present a few songs that currently stick to my head. There are actually a few.

The first one is a classic rock song from the band Loverboy called "Turn Me Loose". The first time I listened to it was almost two weeks ago when I was brushing my teeth at 4 a.m. I have a radio in my bathroom and my favorite classic rock radio station "Radio 21" played it at that time. Hah, I got instantly hooked. The lyrics are very interesting, too. For example:

And I was here to please,
I'm even on my knees
Makin love to whoever I please,
I gotta do it my way,
Or no way at all.



--------------------------------------------------------------


TURN ME LOOSE
Loverboy


I was born to run,
I was born to dream,
The craziest boy you ever seen,
I gotta do It my way,
Or no way at all.

And I was here to please,
I'm even on my knees
Makin love to whoever I please,
I gotta do it my way,
Or no way at all.

And then you came around,
Tried to tie me down,
I was such a clown,
You had to have it your way,
Or no way at all.

Well I've had all I can take,
I can't take it no more,
I'm gonna pack my bags and fly......baby,
Or no way at all.

So why don't you turn me loose,
Turn me lose,
Turn me lose,
I gotta do it my way,
Or no way at all.

Why don't you turn me lose,
Turn me lose,
Turn me lose,
I gotta do it my way,
I wanna fly.

I'm here to please,
I'm even on my knees,
Makin love to whoever I please,
I gotta do it my way,
I gotta do it my way,
And when you came around,
You Tried to tie me down,
I was such a clown,
You had to have it your way,
Well I'm sayin no way,

So why don't you turn me lose,
Turn me lose,
Turn me lose,
I gotta do it my way,
Or no way at all.

Why don't you turn me lose,
Turn me lose,
Turn me lose,
I gotta do it my way,
I wanna fly.

Repeat

Turn me lose,

Repeat.

The next song is "Cells" by The Servant. I first got into it because of a SPN fanvid I presented here. It was so well done and the song so fitting, I liked it immediately. As far as I know is "Cells" featured on the "Sin City OST". I especially like the expressive lyrics and the violins in the background.

The sun goes up and the sun goes down
I drag myself into the town
All I do I wanna to do with you
Everyday I'm at my desk
At my desk I'm like the rest
All I do I wanna do with you



--------------------------------------------------------------

CELLS
The Servant


It'll all click when the mortgage clears
All our fears will disappear
Now you go to bed
I'm staying here
I've got another level that I want to clear
My skin feels like orange peel
My eyes have been vacuum-sealed
My organs move like a squirm of eels
We should be more adventurous with our meals
They annoy me those who employ me
The could destroy me
The should enjoy me
We eat Chinese off our knees
And look for each other in the TV screen

The sun goes up and the sun goes down
I drag myself into the town
All I do I wanna to do with you
Everyday I'm at my desk
At my desk I'm like the rest
All I do I wanna do with you

On the city's skin they move on mass
Like a rash on the back of a manky cat
Now in I go like a fool
I can't resist dipping in the pool
I watch them watch me I watch them too
Across the street, across the room
I dress myself like a charcoal sketch
My eyes are brown and my hair's a mess
They annoy me those who employ me
They could destroy me
They should enjoy me
We eat Chinese off our knees
And look for each other in the TV screen

The sun goes up the sun goes down
I drag myself into the town
All I do I wanna to do with you
Everyday I'm at my desk
At my desk I'm like the rest
All I do I wanna to do with you
The sun goes up ?

The cells I am at the moment will soon die
But I will be here
Oh I'll still be here
The cells I am at the moment will soon die
But I will be here
Oh I'll still be here
The sun goes up ?

Everyday, everyday, everyday

Another song I really like is "You & A Promise" by Howie Day. Don't ask me where I first heard that song! I just had it on my hard drive, and a few days ago my shuffle mode played this song and I was all like, "Whoa, what a nice song!" and I've listened to it a lot ever since.

She was nervous
She was late
She left it up to fate
Standing at a phone oh
And she knows just what she wants
And she came here to take it
How perfect it could be
You and me
And she met him
At the door
I don't want you anymore
Remember what you said



--------------------------------------------------------------

YOU & A PROMISE
Howie Day


She was nervous
She was late
She left it up to fate
Standing at a phone oh
And she knows just what she wants
And she came here to take it
How perfect it could be
You and me
And she met him
At the door
I don't want you anymore
Remember what you said
You and a promise...
You and a promise...

He turned and he didn't wait
He walked right through the gate
So glad to be alone
And he knows who to call
I'll always be there for you
Call me anytime
I don't mean to offend
A voice on the other end
Is a stranger to me
You and a promise...
You and a promise...

And they say to themselves
And they say to themselves
How can I ever let this happen
You and a promise
You and a promise


--------------------------------------------------------------


The next song is "We Used To Be Friends" by The Dandy Warhols. Again, I can't tell where I got it from, I just had it somewhere in my folders It's on the "Veronica Mars OST" and my shuffle mode was so kind and played it and I liked it instantly. I remember the music video and I also remember not liking that song when I first saw said video. How strange that I like it now!

A long time ago, we used to be friends
But I haven't thought of you lately at all
If ever again, a greeting I send to you,
Short and sweet to the soul I intend.



--------------------------------------------------------------


WE USED TO BE FRIENDS
THE DANDY WARHOLS


A long time ago, we used to be friends
But I haven't thought of you lately at all
If ever again, a greeting I send to you,
Short and sweet to the soul I intend.

A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh

Come on now, honey,
Bring it on, bring it on, yeah.
Just remember me when you're good to go
Come on now, sugar,
Bring it on, bring it on, yeah.
Just remember me when.

It's something I said, or someone I know.
Or you called me up, maybe I wasn't home.
Now everybody needs some time,
And everybody knows
The rest of it's fine
And everybody knows that.

Come on now, sugar,
Bring it on, bring it on, yeah.
Just remember me when you're good to go
Come on now, honey,
Bring it on, bring it on, yeah.
Just remember me when.

We used to be friends a long time ago.
We used to be friends a long time ago.
We used to be friends a long time ago.
We used to be friends, hey hey

A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh

A long time ago, we used to be friends
But I haven't thought of you lately at all
If ever again, a greeting I send to you,
Short and sweet to the soul I intend.

We used to be friends a long time ago.
We used to be friends a long time ago.
We used to be friends a long time ago.
We used to be friends,
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
A, ah-ahh-ahh-ahh
