Song with lyric: "SANC-TU-AAAA-RY"?

Asked by Schenectandy (1113points) June 14th, 2008

Somewhere I remember hearing part of a rock or pop song where it goes quiet and they just say, “SANC-TU-AAAA-RY”. It’s not Sanctuary by Iron Maiden.. not quite as heavy a band. I’ve been looking all over for this and have it stuck in my head, so if I just dreamed it up, let me know and I’ll just have to write the song myself.

I think your thinking of The Mars Volta. The song would be Ilyena from their new album The Bedlam in Goliath, does it have lyrics like, “Can’t spot, through the lens, bleeding through my sanc-tu-aaaa-ry.”? If so, you have your song,

It’s not Madonna’s Sanctuary is it? See vid here

@ xxx… Aw- not the one I remember. But- that band is pretty cool, I’m going to have to listen to some more of their songs; so far I like ‘Goliath’- it’s got some Miles Davis-y fusion stuff going on there at the end. But thanks for introducing me to them!

@Sueanne – I’m pretty sure it was a male vocalist- sorry I didn’t specify. But, now I’m going to have to listen to that song too.. I think I just like the lyric “SANC-TU-AAAA-RY” or something ;)

GASP I found it- “Sanctuary” by the J. Geils Band! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaiiKrHPZ94

It was the theme song of Chicago DJ Alan Stagg’s classic rock / twilight zone-y radio show of the same name.

If you like The Mars Volta, try “The Widow”.

I was thinking the Cult with Ian Astbury.

Thanks guys, I’ll check those out! Actually.. Alice Cooper’s ‘Sanctuary’ is pretty cool too!

I believe that it is The Cult. It is a song called She Sells Sanctuary.

The first song that I thought of was a Christian praise song that we used to sing in Sunday School. Obviously not the song you are looking for….but it brings up some old memories.

It’s the Iron Maiden song no matter how many times you say it’s not.

they are an AFI side project.
