Once in a Lifetime - Talking Heads

"There is water at the bottom of the ocean."

Really?

Despite this I still love the song and the band.

What are your votes? There must be thousands.

I have to agree with you. If I hear rock lobster on the radio I will smash it despite who's radio it is. No, I am not joking.

Toto

"As sure as Kilimanjaro rises like Olympus above the Serengeti"

It always makes me laugh. I felt like they thought it was really deep. Haha.

I actually enjoy some of the bad, overblown, pretentious lyrics in 80s songs. How about this one from REO Speedwagon, "Can't Fight This Feeling":

"It's time we row this ship into the shore...and throw away the oars...forever."

Dreadful.

Don´t you dare mock the great Toto, one of the greatest bands of all time!
But i guess those guys wrote the lyrics heavily under the influence back in those days [Cool]

ROFL, spirited defense of Toto there, my friend. Toto had some interesting lyrics. After all, here's a band with a hit song about the one guy's girlfriend, "Rosanna" (Arquette). [Smile]

You have to admit that she deserves to get a song written about her.

i like toto as well, but that, kilamanjero bit does sound pretentious

crash i agree, speedwagon also a good band, but a cheesy line

i agree with you lomax, i can see the inspiration for a song

a little off the subject here but, do you guys think sandra bernhard ever inspired any tunes?

Both in their prime? Yes, I would go for Rosanna on a sultry night for sure. Patricia is very nice though. She looks great in True romance, that's for sure.

Watch The Wrong Guys and you will probably choose Rosanna.

I will check it out just to get a peak. Does she get her kit off?

Yeah, this rating system is funny cos I have given new users that I think are cool 5 stars and then noticed that shortly after they have a rating of 3. So someone has rated them 1 for it to average out at 3.

I gave you 5 ages ago by the way [Wink]

For a dead guy I ain't getting much slack [Cool]

Moderators: If you can find the 1 star bandit, immediately terminate their accounts. I implore you [Big Grin]
