Holes, Britney Spears, Rihanna

Holes - Mercury Rev

time, all the long red lines
that take control
of all the smoke-like streams
that flow into your dreams
that big blue open sea
that can't be crossed
that can't be climbed
just born between
oh the two white lines
distant gods and faded signs
of all those blinking lights
you had to pick the one tonight

holes, dug by little moles
angry jealous spies
got telephones for eyes
come to you as friends
all those endless ends
that can't be tied
oh they make me laugh
and always make me cry
'til they drop like flies
and sink like polished stones
of all the stones I thrown
how does that old song go
how does that old song go

bands, those funny little plans
that never work quite right



Hey Ho.

A suggestion - I know with the phpBB forum you can setup a youtube option whereby you can easily embed vids, any chance of an upgrade?

cheers

:wtf:

Britney Spears is not a bad singer though her songs often have weak lyrics. Nearest to a good lyric was maybe her 1998 song 'Hit me baby one more time' or '...Baby one more time' by Max Martin which she sang dressed in a schoolgirl uniform in its video.

Since 'Hit me baby one more time' maybe smells of a cheap drugs lyric, sadism lyric, child-sex lyric or more likely just cheap teen-talk lyric the 'hit me' was edited out of the song title, thougn not out of the song.
But with 'Kiss me baby one more time' or 'Love me baby one more time' Britney might have had a song with a better lyric but would no doubt have had less sales. Gimmick lyrics sell best for a time at least but generally do not last so well.

But if you can take the 'Hit me' then Britney's 'Hit me baby one more time' is a great song.

Oh baby baby
How was I supposed to know
That something wasn't right here
Oh baby baby
I shouldn't have let you go
And now you're out of sight yeah
Show me how you want it to be
Tell me baby cause I need to know now oh because

My loneliness is killing me
I must confess I still believe
When I'm not with you I lose my mind
Give me a sign
Hit me baby one more time


Oh baby baby
The reason I breathe is you
Boy you got me blinded
Oh pretty baby
There's nothing that I wouldn't do
It's not the way I planned it
Show me how you want it to be
Tell me baby cause I need to know now oh because

My loneliness is killing me
I must confess I still believe
When I'm not with you I lose my mind
Give me a sign
Hit me baby one more time


Oh baby baby
How was I supposed to know
Oh pretty baby
I shouldn't have let you go

I must confess that my loneliness is killing me now
Don't you know I still believe
That you will be here
And give me a sign
Hit me baby one more time

My loneliness is killing me
I must confess I still believe
When I'm not with you I lose my mind
Give me a sign
Hit me baby one more time


My loneliness is killing me
I must confess I still believe
When I'm not with you I lose my mind
Give me a sign
Hit me baby one more time

:think:

I also like Britney Spears, and Rihanna as in her 2010 song 'Only Girl (In The World)' though some of its lyric could maybe be improved on ;
(Song lyrics seem increasingly about promoters trying to maximise sales to teens rather than to producing the best lyrics?)
