This is not northern soul ✊ but it allways makes me smile ,

David Bowie, 5 years ,

MY BRAIN HURT LIKE A WAREHOUSE,

IT HAD NO ROOM TO SPARE 

I HAD TO CRAM SO MANY THINGS TO STORE EVERYTHING IN THERE , 

DAVID DID WRITE SOME BRILLIANT LYRICS

I'm smoking more but enjoying it less, I get a whole lot of sleep but I don't get enough rest.

Contours - "First I Look At The Purse"

"I don't care if she waddles like a duck, or talks with a lisp,

I just think I'd be better of if her Dollar bills are crisp....

'cause first I look at the purse."

1. Don Covay - Bad Mouthing

"You think you can get any man you want just because you look good

But It ain't how good the car looks baby, it's what's up under the hood"

 

 

2 great examples of lyrics that always caught my ear! I've been trying to remember a few more in a similar vein and will post as soon as the old brain kicks in...

Al King "High Cost Of Living" Ronn 42, 1970.

Not my favourite line but a it's a memorable one. Not a style I usually collect either but picked it up cheap and kept it for this lyric:

"Now things have got so rough, even my dog left home, he stands down at the welfare office, barking, trying to get a bone"
