I just realized something about old songs...


Recommended Posts

I had no idea what they were about. As I was listening to the oldies station (70's and 80's) at physical therapy I realized that I knew all the words to these songs when I was young, but I had no idea what they meant. I wonder what my mom thought as I was singing along in the car?

 

Oh, what a night, late December back in '63

What a very special time for me

As I remember what a night!

Oh what a night,

You know I didn't even know her name

But I was never gonna be the same

What a lady, what a night!

Oh, I got a funny feeling when she walked in the room

And I, as I recall it ended much too soon

Oh what a night,

Hypnotizing, mesmerizing me

She was everything I dreamed she'd be

Sweet surrender, what a night!

I felt a rush like a rolling ball of thunder

Spinning my head around and taking my body under

(Oh what a night!)

Oh, I got a funny feeling when she walked in the room

And I, as I recall it ended much too soon

Oh what a night! Doo dit doo dit dit doo dit doo dit dit

Oh what a night! Doo dit doo dit dit doo dit doo dit dit

Oh what a night! Doo dit doo dit dit doo dit doo dit dit

Oh what a night! Doo dit doo dit dit doo dit doo dit dit

Oh what a night,

I KNOW!!!!!! When I listen to some of the 80s songs from my middle/high school years, I absolutely CRINGE!!!!

 

The other day, we were in the car and a song came on that had a fun tune. I was humming along with it. My 14 yo ds asked me, "Um. Mom. Do you KNOW what this song is about???" Nope!!! It was to the tune of, "There's a place in France . . . " Remember that song? Well, it's a REALLY dirty song now!!! Anyway, apparently, my boys are much more aware of what they are singing than I was in the 80s! Yikes! Luckily, my kids are embarrassed by those lyrics and don't want to listen to it (at least not when I'm in the car!).

Well, we all knew what it meant, but I remember singing White Rabbit, very loudly, out the car window on a long trip up Queensland (the roads were one lane paved and two gravel ditches) in 1968:

 

One pill makes you larger and

One pill makes you small and

The ones that mother gives you

Don't do anything at all.

I knew what this one was about at time.

 

I gave a girl a ride in my wagon

She crawled in and took control

She was tired 'cause her mind was a-draggin'

I said, get some sleep and dream of rock and roll

 

'Cause like a princess she was layin' there

Moonlight dancin' off her hair

She woke up and took me by the hand

She's gonna love me in my Chevy van

And that's all right with me

 

Her young face was like that of an angel

Her long legs were tanned and brown

Better keep your eyes on the road, son

Better slow this vehicle down

 

'Cause like a princess she was layin' there

Moonlight dancin' off her hair

She woke up and took me by the hand

We made love in my Chevy van

And that's all right with me

 

I put her out in a town that was so small

You could throw a rock from end to end

A dirt-road main street, she walked off in bare feet

It's a shame I won't be passin' through again

 

'Cause like a princess she was layin' there

Moonlight dancin' off her hair

She woke up and took me by the hand

We made love in my Chevy van

And that's all right with me

 

'Cause like a princess she was layin' there

I didn't really listen to popular music until I was a bit older, but I do remember when I was little and I heard this:I'm sad to say, I'm on my way, won't be back for many a day. My heart is down, my head is turning around, I had to leave a little girl in Kingston Town. Because there is a suburb called Kingston near where we lived, I assumed that it was about a parent who left her child there, and I worried about why the parent would do this, and what happened to the little girl, and would my mother leave me a few suburbs away if I was too naughty.

I remember distinctly when my oldest was a tiny thing of 5 or 6 and she was jumping on my bed singing to the radio......... at the top of her lungs......

 

 

Lola

I met her in a club down in old soho

Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like cherry-cola [lp version:

Coca-cola]

C-o-l-a cola

She walked up to me and she asked me to dance

I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said lola

L-o-l-a lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola

 

Well I’m not the world’s most physical guy

But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine

Oh my lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola

Well I’m not dumb but I can’t understand

Why she walked like a woman and talked like a man

Oh my lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola

 

Well we drank champagne and danced all night

Under electric candlelight

She picked me up and sat me on her knee

And said dear boy won’t you come home with me

Well I’m not the world’s most passionate guy

But when I looked in her eyes well I almost fell for my lola

Lo-lo-lo-lo lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola

Lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola

 

I pushed her away

I walked to the door

I fell to the floor

I got down on my knees

Then I looked at her and she at me

 

Well that’s the way that I want it to stay

And I always want it to be that way for my lola

Lo-lo-lo-lo lola

Girls will be boys and boys will be girls

It’s a mixed up muddled up shook up world except for lola

Lo-lo-lo-lo lola

 

Well I left home just a week before

And I’d never ever kissed a woman before

But lola smiled and took me by the hand

And said dear boy I’m gonna make you a man

 

Well I’m not the world’s most masculine man

But I know what I am and I’m glad I’m a man

And so is lola

Lo-lo-lo-lo lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola

Lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola lo-lo-lo-lo lola

 

 

 

I decided to play mostly classical after that. :lol:

Growing up my sister and I loved to belt this one out - the song beat is great. The lyrics, ummm.... what was my mother thinking to let her two little girls sing this?

 

Simon And Garfunkel Cecilia Lyrics

Send "Cecilia" Ringtone to your Cell

Translation in progress. Please wait...

 

Cecilia, you're breaking my heart

You're shaking my confidence daily

Oh, Cecilia, I'm down on my knees

I'm begging you please to come home

 

Cecilia, you're breaking my heart

You're shaking my confidence daily

Oh, Cecilia, I'm down on my knees

I'm begging you please to come home

Come on home

 

Making love in the afternoon with Cecilia

Up in my bedroom (making love)

I got up to wash my face

When I come back to bed

Someone's taken my place

 

Cecilia, you're breaking my heart

You're shaking my confidence daily

Oh, Cecilia, I'm down on my knees

I'm begging you please to come home

Come on home

 

Jubilation, she loves me again,

I fall on the floor and I'm laughing,

Jubilation, she loves me again,

I fall on the floor and I'm laughing

Poor old Johnny Ray

Sounded sad upon the radio, he moved a million hearts in mono.

Our mothers cried and sang along and who'd blame them.

Now you're grown, so grown, now I must say more than ever.

Go Toora Loora Toora Loo-Rye-Aye

and we can sing just like our fathers.

 

Come on Eileen,

I swear (well he means) At this moment you mean everything,

With you in that dress my thoughts I confess verge on dirty

Ah come on Eileen.

 

These people round here wear beaten down eyes

Sunk in smoke dried faces they're so resigned to what their fate is,

But not us, no not us we are far too young and clever.

Remember Toora Loora Toora Loo-Rye-Aye

Eileen I'll hum this tune forever.

 

Come on Eileen, I swear, well he means

Ah come on let's take off everything,

That pretty red dress Eileen (Tell him yes)

Ah come on let's, ah come on Eileen, please.

I loved 70's music, still do. This was one of my favorites. Of course, I did know what it meant. Sometimes, I think I pay more attention to the lyrics than many people do.

I distinctly remember prancing around my room singing Madonna's "Like a Virgin" while my mom was in the next room. She asked me if I knew what a virgin was. I didn't. She didn't tell me either. She continued to let me listen to to tape. And what makes it even more interesting is that it was my Godmother who bought me the album in the first place.

As a child, I had a weakness for "embellishing" the truth! One time I told a group of friends that I was a back-up singer for music groups. Sadly, the song I chose to lie about was .... Afternoon Delight!!!

 

I was so embarrassed when I was older and I realized what that song described. I still see a couple of those people and almost forty years later I am completely embarrassed!!

I was recently going through a box from highschool - it had some of my favorite cds, letters, etc. Once of those cds was Nine Inch Nails. I was absolutely HORRIFIED at the lyrics! I honestly don't believe my mother ever heard what I was listening to or she might have had a heart attack!

 

My dds were in the house and I'm jumping across the room to turn off the music before they got in my room. And people complain about rap lyrics?!?!

My kids laugh a lot about when I don't catch on to the meaning of some songs...

 

For a long time I thought "Shut up and Drive" was a song written by a popular singer to send out the message to stay off your cell phones on the road... nope... that wasn't what was going on!!! My teens had a great laugh over this!!

 

I cannot believe my mom didn't have a talk with me about what I was singing when I was a teen... I had Marvin Gaye's popular song nailed! Now if I hear it, I wonder, "what was I thinking?' "What was my mom thinking?" How could I not know THAT?

I knew what the music was saying. And much of it I wouldn't have written myself. Yet I enjoyed the music, as I loved to dance. As a teen, I felt it ridiculous that adults believed that music lyrics would influence my actions. Just because I sang a song about getting down and dirty with someone didn't mean I was going to play out the song because the song said so.

I give my kids more credit than that, too. Music is a form of expression and entertainment, as is television. I don't mimic my life after tv shows/characters, either.

The Joker...ack! Nothing like having your child ask what "I really like your peaches, want to shake your tree" means! *blush*

 

And what about when you've thought the lyrics to a song were different than they actually were? I didn't know that "One Toe Over the Line, Sweet Jesus" was actually "One Toke Over the Line, Sweet Jesus"! till the other night when hubby and I were watching an infomercial for 1970's music and reminiscing.

Don't forget the Joker was a "midnight toker," too. Think we've got a trend going here. ;)

Yeah, I really thought Melanie's "Brand New Key" was about rollerskates until my oh-so-clever daughter informed me otherwise. Just never thought about it that way, iykwim. :D

Any of the music from Grease - except Sandy and Danny's solos.

 

Most of the 80's hair metal that I still adore. I never heard anything 'satanic' in hair metal. Basically it was like 'get wasted, party on'. And I didn't do any of those things even if I did sing along with it at the top of my lungs.

 

But I was stunned to actually 'hear' the lyrics of 'Relax' by Frankie Goes to Hollywood. I must have never paid attention before.

I was by no means a sheltered kid, and I still had no clue what a lot of my favourite songs were talking about, even when I knew every lyric. And movies too! I can't believe what my parents let me watch, and things just went right over my head...

 

Anyway, dh and I are big music lovers and have never censored what we listened to around the kids. I have now started to be careful about what we listen to frequently enough for them to learn the lyrics, though. I started to rotate things more when I heard my daughter (then three) singing along to Folsom Prison Blues by Johnny Cash.

 

There's just something not quite right about hearing your toddler belt out "But I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die..."

You know what made me crazy? People who used I Celebrate my Love For You to dance their first wedding dance. It made me blush, and I was all young and hip ;) when this one was released. You do know your grandmother is listening, right? Your father? Oy.

 

Tonight, I celebrate my love for you

It seems the natural thing to do

Tonight, no one's gonna find us

We'll leave the world behind us

When I make love to you

Tonight, I celebrate my love for you

And hope that deep inside you feel it too

Tonight, our spirits will be climbing

To a sky lit up with diamonds

When I make love to you

Tonight

 

Tonight, I celebrate my love for you (ooh-ooh)

And that midnight sun

Is gonna come shining through (ooh-ooh)

Tonight, there'll be no distance between us

What I want most to do

Is to get close to you

Tonight

 

Tonight, I celebrate my love for you

And soon this old world will seem brand new

Tonight, we will both discover

How friends turn into lovers

When I make love to you

 

Tonight, I celebrate my love for you (ooh-ooh)

And that midnight sun

Is gonna come shining through (ooh-ooh)

Tonight, there'll be no distance between us

What I want most to do

Is to get close to you

 

Tonight, I celebrate my love for you

Tonight

That song (Tonight I Celebrate My Love) really grosses me out. :tongue_smilie:

 

My Sharona is another terrible song!

 

Ooh my little pretty one, pretty one.

When you gonna give me some time, Sharona?

Ooh you make my motor run, my motor run.

Gun it comin' off the line Sharona

Never gonna stop, give it up.

Such a dirty mind. Always get it up for the touch

of the younger kind. My my my i yi woo. M M M My Sharona...

 

Come a little closer huh, ah will ya huh.

Close enough to look in my eyes, Sharona.

Keeping it a mystery gets to me

Running down the length of my thighs, Sharona

Never gonna stop, give it up. Such a dirty mind.

Always get it up for the touch

of the younger kind. My my my i yi woo. M M M My Sharona...

 

When you gonna give it to me, give it to me.

It is just a matter of time Sharona

Is it just destiny, destiny?

Or is it just a game in my mind, Sharona?

Never gonna stop, give it up.

Such a dirty mind. Always get it up for the touch

of the younger kind. My my my i yi woo. M M M My Sharona

We watched Footloose a lot when I was young, and often played the soundtrack in the car. When I got older it was on in the car again and I finally realized one of the songs was "Dancing in the Sheets" not Dancing in the Streets. I mentioned it to my mom and she just laughed. She was letting me keep my version as long as possible!

This is why I laugh when parents won't let their children listen to pop songs today but they play the old songs instead.

 

I heard one the other day about 2 young teens in love whose families wouldn't let them be together so they jumped in the river together and drowned. Egads! Now there's some role modeling for you!

See that is what I don't get! I wasn't "allowed" to listen to popular music in the 80's (Pop, Rock), but I my folks played everything from the 50's-70's and 80's Country. Their reasoning was the 80's Pop and Rock were "bad". Eh? And what we were listening to? :confused:

This one is a give-away:

 

Living easy, living free

Season ticket on a one-way ride

Asking nothing, leave me be

Taking everything in my stride

Don't need reason, don't need rhyme

Ain't nothing I would rather do

Going down, party time

My friends are gonna be there too

I'm on the highway to hell

No stop signs, speed limit

Nobody's gonna slow me down

Like a wheel, gonna spin it

Nobody's gonna mess me round

Hey Satan, payed my dues

Playing in a rocking band

Hey Momma, look at me

I'm on my way to the promised land

I'm on the highway to hell

(Don't stop me)

And I'm going down, all the way down

I'm on the highway to hell

Ah, but don't you think that AC/DC (loved them, still do) was being intentionally cheeky about their "naughtiness"? Even back in the 80's, I always thought that their songs were intended to laugh at people who get so uptight about anything less than choirboy-esque lyrics.

 

And movies - my son was just telling me yesterday that he was in the mood to watch the Back to the Future series again. I confessed that I had loved them growing up, and then when we first showed them to our children, I was appalled at how much swearing there was. I didn't remember any of that! I told him that of course the irony is that had I not said anything to them, as adults they probably wouldn't have remembered the bad language at all, but since I had been shocked and pointed it out, now it will be one of the things that stands out for them. <headsmack>

Does she walk? Does she talk?

Does she come complete?

My homeroom homeroom angel

Always pulled me from my seat

 

She was pure like snowflakes

No one could ever stain

The memory of my angel

Could never cause me pain

 

Years go by I'm lookin' through a girly magazine

And there's my homeroom angel on the pages in-between

 

CHORUS:

My blood runs cold

My memory has just been sold

My angel is the centerfold

Angel is the centerfold

(Repeat)

 

Slipped me notes under the desk

While I was thinkin' about her dress

I was shy I turned away

Before she caught my eye

 

I was shakin' in my shoes

Whenever she flashed those baby-blues

Something had a hold on me

When angel passed close by

 

Those soft and fuzzy sweaters

Too magical to touch

Too see her in that negligee

Is really just too much

 

CHORUS

 

It's okay I understand

This ain't no never-never land

I hope that when this issue's gone

I'll see you when your clothes are on

 

Take you car, Yes we will

We'll take your car and drive it

We'll take it to a motel room

And take 'em off in private

 

A part of me has just been ripped

The pages from my mind are stripped

Oh no, I can't deny it

Oh yea, I guess I gotta buy it!

 

I was in College before I figured this one out :lol:

 

I also walked around singing "Just a Jigalo" when David Lee Roth released it. My mother didn't take offense to that one. She banned "Like a Virgin" however.

I love lots of kinds of music. All sorts of songs. Metal, pop, whatever.

 

But, at heart, the music that I love the best, the absolute best, is music from the 50's. It took me a long time to figure out why, and I think it's because most of it (but not all) is innocent. If there is anything un-innocent in it, it's usually carefully hidden. And I'm just Pollyanna enough that I like the innocence of it.

 

Only my husband knows this about me. I won't tell anyone IRL because, honestly--who likes stuff from the 50's? Only nerds! I don't want anyone to know I'm a nerd!

Heh. I used to think this was patently self-evident about AC/DC (I mean, if *I* figured it out back in 9th grade), but then I met someone who took their lyrics very, very seriously, and was pretty sure they were The Most Evil Band Ever. So then, naturally, I wondered if I was the one who was missing something obvious.

 

But ultimately, I decided that their music was so darned awesome I just didn't care. ;)

Hilarious! My daughter is unaware of Percy Jackson as of yet. I did however recently realize she'd had too much Harry Potter exposure when she suggested naming the new baby Lord Voldemort. :blink:

I didn't realize what the songs were about, even though I knew all the words, until I started playing guitar hero. The songs are great, but then I started listening to the words...woah. Now I finally know what the song "Slow Ride" is all about...I'd just pictured a bunch of bikers driving around on a sunday drive!!! Yeah, I was wrong...

 

I was a pretty wild teen, but I admit reading this thread has opened my eyes! I had NO IDEA...my sharona...the joker...celebrate my love...0_0

Another one I crack up over is The Police 'Every Breath You Take'. It's stalker city. Ditto 'Layla' by Derek and The Dominoes (Clapton). :lol:

If there is anything un-innocent in it, it's usually carefully hidden. And I'm just Pollyanna enough that I like the innocence of it.

 

Only my husband knows this about me. I won't tell anyone IRL because, honestly--who likes stuff from the 50's? Only nerds! I don't want anyone to know I'm a nerd!

 

Me! Me! I'll be nerdy with you. I love all those songs from the '50's. I had an old boyfriend who was into oldies (that was what we called oldies back then) and he turned me on to all that great music.
