Late Entry QOD

The theme for this week's (Wednesday's) musical chairs posting is "The song you wish you wrote." We decided we mean lyrically, not musically.

I have a couple of songs in mind. Haven't made my final decision yet.

What would you choose?


Does this include a song you wish you had written so that you could have thrown it away without it ever having been performed?

If it does, I pick "Imagine."

Wow, you turned the meaning of the post around in the FIRST comment!


If not me now, someone else later!

Badger, badger badger.
I am sincere.

New York State Of Mind. Yes, I'm predictable. Shut up.

"Brian Wilson" by Barenaked Ladies.

I wish I'd written "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down." Not because it's particularly meaningful to me, though I do like it as an alternative anti-war perspective. I just think it's really, really good writing. It's like an epic novel in a couple dozen lines.


I'll play it straight up.

Guitar and Pen - The Who

'Here I Go Again' Whitesnake

SM: Love the sentiment...I agree.

Night Moves

'A lapdance is so much better when the stripper is crying'

I mean, can you get any more poetic than "This pretty little thing come up to me and starts kneadin' my balls like hard-boiled eggs in a tube sock."

I Hope You Dance-

Yes-you can barf now, but I don't care . . . .

Bold as Love

The Police - Wrapped Around Your Finger

Annastazia, if I'm to be serious, which I'm wont to do on occasion, I'd go with Fortress Around Your Heart. Something about

I recognized the fields where I once played
Had to stop in my tracks for fear
Of walking on the mines I'd laid

That just send shivers down my spine.

"I Don't Need You Now" by the Mr. T Experience.

Doctor Frank is such an awesome songwriter.

Megan, that song is actually one of my three finalists.

Moonlight Mile by the Rolling Stones

"When the wind blows
and the rain feels cold
with a head full of snow. . . ."

The Star-Spangled Banner...just one long-assed question, but it's got legs.

Yeah but that twit Francis Scott Key wrote a bit in it that know bass could ever sing even in falsetto.

Actually, Frankie Key didn't write the music. His poem/lyrics were later adapted to a old drinking song, "To Anacreon in Heaven." If I'd written it, I'd ask some musician friends in Baltimore to jam for a few months and come up some something original. Maybe have a composition contest....
