I think it’s been too long since we revisited this old Fluther gem of a question!

My Church by Maren Morris is mine.

[Verse 1]
I’ve cussed on a Sunday
I’ve cheated and I’ve lied
I’ve fallen down from grace
A few too many times
But I find holy redemption
When I put this car in drive
Roll the windows down and turn up the dial

[Chorus]
Can I get a hallelujah
Can I get an amen
Feels like the Holy Ghost running through ya
When I play the highway FM
I find my soul revival
Singing every single verse
Yeah I guess that’s my church

[Verse 2]
When Hank bring the sermon
And Cash leads the choir
It gets my cold, cold heart burning
Hotter than a ring of fire
When this wonderful world gets heavy
And I need to find my escape
I just keep the wheels rolling, radio scrolling
Until my sins wash away

[Chorus]
Can I get a hallelujah
Can I get an amen
Feels like the Holy Ghost running through ya
When I play the highway FM
I find my soul revival
Singing every single verse
Yeah I guess that’s my church

[Chorus]
Can I get a hallelujah
Can I get an amen
Feels like the Holy Ghost running through ya
When I play the highway FM
I find my soul revival
Singing every single verse
Yeah I guess that’s my church

[Chorus]
Can I get a hallelujah
Can I get an amen
Feels like the Holy Ghost running through ya
When I play the highway FM
I find my soul revival
Singing every single verse
Yeah I guess that’s my church
Yeah I guess that’s my church
Yeah I guess that’s my church

“Cream and Bastards Rise” by Harvey Danger.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqYPuQuFnak

It’s a song about the growing phenomenon of more work being piled on the doers while other manipulative types reap the rewards.

Time is racing towards us
til the Huns arrive!
Heed my every warning
and you might
survive!

I literally was just singing this. The people on the train may have been looking at me.

7 Years

“Once I was seven years old my mama told me
Go make yourself some friends or you’ll be lonely
Once I was seven years old

It was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger
Pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker
By eleven smoking herb and drinking burning liquor
Never rich so we were out to make that steady figure.”

@CWOTUS have you heard her version of Brain Damage/Eclipse?

CWOTUS's avatar

I have heard that; it’s on my list of favorites. (A month ago I had never even heard of her or October Project.)

It might be by the Muppets

Jeruba's avatar

Highlights from Bizet’s Carmen, which I saw on Sunday. Operas usually run in my head for a couple of weeks after a performance, unless it’s one of those terrible ones that don’t have any melodies to speak of. I flush those as fast as possible.

SecondHandStoke's avatar

^ Loved that.

Thank you for the experience.

Note: don’t self censor. It appears weak.

FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK…

Well, now I’m thinking of this song
(Starts at 1:23)

This very dramatic Korean song about carrots.

Coloma's avatar

@Yetanotheruser Excellent tune! and this gem….

www.youtube.com/watch?v=JT8zLTaKxeE

maybe a deadfest here tonight

Jeruba's avatar

Oh, great. Thanks for the earworm, @si3tech. Well, I guess that’s it for Carmen, anyway.

Strauss's avatar

The Trumpet Shall Sound from Handel’s Messiah.

I don’t know why it’s in my head right now, but I performed it in a recital when I was in college.

Honestly, I don’t know why I do this to my self:

@ibstubro Thank You. I’m going to have Gary Numan nightmares.

ibstubro's avatar

Have a brownie and visit with the nice lamppost.
:-)

CWOTUS's avatar

This piece has always been a particular favorite. I’ve listened to it several times tonight.

Coloma's avatar

@ibstubro Brownies tonight in a raging storm, a real treat, it’s been awhile, so I will have to find some good storm tunes, ...like this…

www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_eQGsbHhDo

No lamposts, I’ll commune with the pussy cats and owls. :-)

stanleybmanly's avatar

Those brownies are bad for you. Forward them to me immediately for “proper” and safe disposal. I value your welfare to the extent that I perform this service without charge. I’ll pm the shipping particulars.

stanleybmanly's avatar

Brownies loaded with nuts are particularly dangerous. Hurry!

ibstubro's avatar

Brownies loaded by nuts? @stanleybmanly? WTF?

Coloma's avatar

Hey..I’m a good nut, you guys would love to hang out with me for a brownie party. lol
What could be better than porch sitting in a big storm enhanced by a little herbal essence? :-D
Then, I shall make us a feast to beat all feasts, yep, I’ll have you two eating out my hand in no time. lol

Coloma's avatar

9:42 on in the stormy ca. hills and I am having a great time, the herbal rice krispy bar is working it’s magic and I’m diggin’ this raging storm, watching the power black out on the other side of the mountain here , wild wind, lightening and grovvin’ to these guys while eating stale coconut marshmallows. Their great! lol
Back to the porch, enjoy this little tune. :-D

www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8H-67ILaqc

CWOTUS's avatar

Dayum, you must be high if you can watch the power go out on the other side of the mountain.

Here is where I wound up after I listened to some of your link.

Coloma's avatar

@CWOTUS She is wonderful! Thanks! I love unusual musical talent.

ibstubro's avatar

Damned entertaining, @Coloma.

That was amazing, @CWOTUS.
Thanks!

I had no idea how working at daycare was going to kill my libido but a lot has to do with songs in my head and it angers me. Must take steps to correct.

^ What are you smokin’? lol

CWOTUS's avatar

Something a bit quieter for me today.

Coloma's avatar

@CWOTUS Very nice, bedtime tunes.

CWOTUS's avatar

Here’s one for St. Pat’s Day next week, then.

CWOTUS's avatar

Another one that’s a bit more lively.

Coloma's avatar

@CWOTUS Nice.

Does anyone need a bath time song? haha

For you stu.

One of my J.C. favs.

ibstubro's avatar

Back at ya.

Watch how effortlessly he sings it. For some reason just the opening notes make me want to tear up, @Coloma.

Coloma's avatar

@ibstubro Nice! Never heard that one.

ibstubro's avatar

Oh, one of my favs, @Coloma.
It blew me away when I opened that video for you and saw that incredible song coming out of Cash and him not even breaking a sweat. Little more visible effort than breathing. Amazing.

Coloma's avatar

@ibstubro Yes. he was really unique. Makes me want to watch the 2005 “Walk the line” again. Good flick on his life, have you ever seen it?

CWOTUS's avatar

I’ve been enjoying this tonight.

Coloma's avatar

@CWOTUS Excellent, never heard of them. Thanks!

Jeruba's avatar

Now it’s a Strauss waltz. I can’t get rid of it.

Something is always playing on my inner soundtrack. Always, always. I don’t know if this is common or unusual, but the music track is always running. I don’t even know if it stops when I’m drugged for a surgical procedure, but I’ll bet it doesn’t.

Strauss's avatar

@Jeruba It happens to me as well. I’ll suddenly become aware that I’ve been internally humming, singing or playing a song. Even if I am not conscious of the fact that I heard the song, sometimes just a few bars from a passing car

Right now that soundtrack is playing something by Vivaldi, but I can’t recall the name of the work.

Coloma's avatar

Heard this on my way home tonight. Love this song!

www.youtube.com/watch?v=dKJLbv5khLg

ibstubro's avatar

YIKES! @Coloma. That’s an ear worm.
Yes, I’ve seen the Cash movie. Decent, but I’m not a big fan of Bio-pix of people still alive in my mind. :)

Because of another question, I’ve had this song ear worm in my head today.
Happy, happy.

Jeruba's avatar

@Yetanotheruser, odds are it’s “The Four Seasons,” right? I’ve just switched over to something from Mozart. Better than a while ago, when it was “I Can’t Help Falling in Love with You.”

Strauss's avatar

@Jeruba Oh, you mean the one based on “Plaisir D’amour”, written by Jean Paul Egide Martini!

I heard it performed as part of a trumpet recital back in the early seventies!

Jeruba's avatar

That’s the one.

So was it “Spring”?

Strauss's avatar

I’d have to guess yes…it’s the one that sounds something like this:

Daah di-da daah dah daaah daa da, daah di-da daah dah daaah daa da daah da-dah da-da-da dash.

Jeruba's avatar

Nope, that’s not Spring.

Mozart still going relentlessly: this one (at 1:53).

Strauss's avatar

Right now, my earworm is Should I Stay Or Should I Go?
by The Clash.

Coloma's avatar

@Yetanotheruser Thanks for that, bunches. :-(

One earworm deserves another. Back at’cha. haha

Coloma's avatar

This old gem by Little Feat. Linda Ronstadt did a great rendition as well.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=iguLpoV0SXc Man..that album, “Sailin’ Shoes”, loved it, aah memories, seems like it was just a few ears ago, not 40+. haha

ibstubro's avatar

I love this song.

I love it so much I’ve had it in my head for days…maybe weeks…and I still like it.

Coloma's avatar

@ibstubro Good little tune!

CWOTUS's avatar

I can’t say that it’s an old favorite from my youth, because I only found out about it last year sometime, but I like this.

ibstubro's avatar

I saw a simple sign that said Happy Holidays while we were cleaning out a house, and I’ve been stuck with it ever since.

Roy Orbison’s Pretty Woman

I’m going to play some of my favourite stuff loud tonight. It is summer and I have a kid-free weekend! https://www.triplejunearthed.com/jukebox/play/track/364636

https://soundcloud.com/thirstlands

Watto is a friend and I swear he writes about my life and I should get royalties, damn it. He’s happily married for like 20 years, so the heart break credits should really go to me. lol.

cazzie's avatar

This is what made me fall in love with his music. https://soundcloud.com/musicbywatto/sets/ecliptic-full-album

(after he was a friend… just so you know….. I’m not groupie.)

ibstubro's avatar

Damn, I can’t believe this question has been dormant for 3 months! Thanks, @Yetanotheruser for the shot-in-the-arm. Even more amazing, I’m still groovin to “My Church”!

Orbison has such a distinctive voice, @Yetanotheruser. Great, great tune!

I liked “She Dances” a lot, @cazzie. I misread the band’s name and renamed them “The Thirstlads”, which I liked better, lol.
Thanks for a newview!

I was going through a stack of old 45 records I’d just bought the other day, and briefly had Queen’s B-side tune, Don’t Try Suicide stuck in my brain. Nobody gives a damn.

Don’t ask me why, but today it’s the Theme from _Phineas and Ferb

@janbb, is that you at 1:50 and 1:55?

Strauss's avatar

Another day, another song.

Heal In The Wisdom

ibstubro's avatar

Yikes
They played it on NPR for some reason, and it stuck.

rojo's avatar

“Someday love will find you
Break those chains that bind you
One night will remind you
How we touched and went our separate ways
If he ever hurts you
True love won’t desert you
You know I still love you
Though we touched and went our separate ways”

I spent the last four days working outside from 8 am until 5 pm with a “Classic Rock” radio station on and, evidently, during the last four decades there were only exactly 63 classic hits written and performed and these songs are played, re-played and played yet again over and over on classic rock music channels. Care to guess what one of these classics hits is?

Good guess!

Yep, Separate Ways by Journey!

Want to guess the other 62? Well, why don’t we save that for another question.

Haven’t Met You Yet by Michael Bublé.
They played it while we were eating at Dairy Queen, and, as they say, “the other half’s sluck..”
