Awesome Lyrics

Recommended Posts

opposite to the other thread if you don't mind.....some of the most brilliant northern & crossover tunes do have remarkably simple lyrics....nothing wrong with that....and then there are those that you hum along to, then listen carefully, end up knowing them off by heart, and finally the penny drops just how intricate, poignant, and clever they really are. who's you favourite artist/s for this, the exponents of the song that make the writers efforts sound so complete?. well, i think for one, darrow fletcher is right in this bracket...having pondered his catalogue, its unerring how each song is interlinked with smart, catchy verses that ring true and make you think. and out of the box titles in the main "what have i got now", my young misery", and...of all these, "infatuation"..i honestly HADN'T heard this...silly but it's true, but does the story twist and turn or not?...so, i'll pick one line from it..."just because you like my style, dosn't mean i'll walk you down the aisle" you just wouldn't hear that anywhere else!...let's have you thoughts and suggestions if you please.

All fantastic examples Dave, "Under the street lamp" epitomises what soul is about for me, but now Im starting to think about "Dreams of a shoeshine boy" what the hell, all brilliant goosepimple jobs

I've always appreciated the lyrics to this one, especially the line: 

 

"Now loneliness is a pleasure / compared to being with you"

 

OUCH.

Couple of Motown related

 

The words I rehearsed

Came out in reverse

 

 

Another two dollar room

that's never seen a broom

 

And from Mr. Conwell

 

I'm smoking more now,

But I'm enjoying it less

Nice, one of my favourites sounds ever,

The single cigarette we used to share.....................

Same here mate, every line....but especially this one "even though my heart is breaking I wish you love, may you find the happiness we both dreamt of"

Better - Ruby Winters on Diamond Records.. "Better to have somebody love you, for what you are not for what you can get etc.....

Is This The Way To Treat A Girl (You bet it is) - The Hesitations on GWP

I Am Nothing - Al Williams on La Beat and Palmer... Perfection

Just a few of my favourites that come to mind but the list is endless. Your beat ballads being the greatest of all for lyrics and true meaning.
