Lyrics That Are Stuck in My Head... Right Now!

  • Jan 17, 2011
It is what it is, folks. These... are... the... lyrics... that... are... stuck... in... my... head... right... now!
And here are some videos to go along with them. They aren't all very good quality, but at least you'll be able to hear the music along with the lyrics.

Head Like a Hole

"God money, I'll do anything for you
God money, just tell me what you want me to
God money, nail me up against the wall
God money, don't want everything, he wants it all

No, you can't take it
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take that away from me
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take that away from me

No, you can't take it
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take that away from me
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take that away from me

God money's not looking for the cure
God money's not concerned about the sick among the pure
God money, let's go dancing on the backs of the bruised
God money's not one to choose

No, you can't take it
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take that away from me
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take that away from me

No, you can't take it
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take that away from me
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take that away from me

No, you can't take it
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take that away from me
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take it
No, you can't take that away from me

Mad World

"All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places, worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going nowhere, going nowhere
And their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression, no expression
Hide my head, I want to drown my sorrow
No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kind of funny and I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've had
I find it hard to tell you 'cause I find it hard to take
When people run in circles, it's a very, very...
Mad world
Mad world
Mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday, happy birthday
Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen, sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me, no one knew me
Hello, teacher, what's my lesson
Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kind of funny and I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've had
I find it hard to tell you 'cause I find it hard to take
When people run in circles, it's a very, very...
Mad world
Mad world
Mad world

How Soon Is Now?

"I am the son
And the heir
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
Of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody does

I am the son
And the heir
Of a shyness that is criminally vulgar
I am the son and heir
Of nothing in particular

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody does

There's a club if you'd like to go
You could meet somebody who really loves you
So you go and you stand on your own
And you leave on your own
And you go home and you cry
And you want to die

When you say it's going to happen now
Well, when exactly do you mean
See, I've already waited too long
And all my hope is gone

You shut your mouth
How can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
Just like everybody does

Zero

"My reflection, dirty mirror
There's no connection to myself
I'm your lover, I'm your zero
I'm the face in your dreams of glass
So save your prayers
For when we're really gonna need 'em
Throw out your cares and fly
Wanna go for a ride

She's the one for me
She's all I really need
'Cause she's the one for me

Emptiness is loneliness
And loneliness is cleanliness
And cleanliness is godliness
And God is empty just like me

Intoxicated with my madness
I'm in love with my sadness
Bullshit fakers, enchanted kingdoms
The fashion victims chew their charcoal teeth

I never let on that I was on a sinking ship
I never let on that I was down
You blame yourself for what you can't ignore
You blame yourself for wanting more

She's the one for me
She's all I really need
She's the one for me
She's my one and only
"

The Cure
Burn

"Don't look, don't look
The shadows breathe
Whispering me away from you
Don't wake at night to watch her sleep
You know that you will always lose
This trembling adored
Tousled bird mad girl

But every night I burn
But every night I call your name
Every night I burn
Every night I fall again

Oh, don't talk of love
The shadows purr
Murmuring me away from you
Don't talk of words that never were
The end is all that's ever true
There's nothing you can ever say
Nothing you can ever do

Still, every night I burn
Every night I scream your name
Every night I burn
Every night the dream's the same
Every night I burn
Waiting for my only friend
Every night I burn
Waiting for the world to end

Just paint your face
The shadows smile
Slipping me away from you
Oh, it doesn't matter how you hide
Find you if we're wanting to
So, slide back down and close your eyes
Sleep a while, you must be tired

But every night I burn
Every night I call your name
Every night I burn
Every night I fall again
Every night I burn
Scream the animal scream
Every night I burn
Dream the crow-black dream

Dream the crow-black dream
"

Blue Monday

"How does it feel
To treat me like you do
When you've laid your hands upon me
And told me who you are
I thought I was mistaken
I thought I heard your words
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now, how do I feel

Those who came before me lived through their vocations
And still I find it so hard to say what I need to say
But I'm quite sure that you'll tell me just how I should feel today

I see a ship in the harbor
I can and shall obey
But if it wasn't for your misfortune
I'd be a heavenly person today
And I thought I was mistaken
I thought I heard you speak
Tell me how do  feel
Tell me now, how should I feel

Now I stand here waiting

I thought I told you to leave me
When I walked down to the beach
Tell me how does it feel
When your heart grows cold, grows cold, cold

Love Will Tear Us Apart

"When routine bites hard
And ambitions are low
And resentments ride high
But emotions won't grow
And we're changing our ways
Taking different roads

But love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again

Why is the bedroom so cold
Turned away on your side
Is my timing that flawed
Our respect run so dry
Yet there's still this appeal
That we've kept through our lives

Love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again

Do you cry out in your sleep
All my failings exposed
Gets a taste in my mouth
As desperation takes hold
Why is it something so good
Just can't function no more

Love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again
Love, love will tear us apart again
"

Forty Six & 2

"My shadow's
Shedding skin
And I've been picking
My scabs again
I'm down
Digging through
My old muscles
Looking for a clue

I've been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could've been
I've been wallowing in my own confused
And insecure delusions
For a piece to cross me over
For a word to guide me in
I wanna feel the changes coming down
I wanna know what I've been hiding
In my shadow
My shadow
Change is coming through my shadow
My shadow
Shedding skin
I've been picking
My scabs again

I've been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could've been
I've been wallowing in my own chaotic
And insecure delusions
I wanna feel the change consume me
Feel the outside turning in
I wanna feel the metamorphosis
And cleansing I've endured within
My shadow
My shadow
Change is coming
Now is my time

Listen to my muscle memory
Contemplate what I've been clinging to
Forty six and two ahead of me

I choose to live and to
Grow, take and give, and to
Move, learn and love, and to
Cry, kill and die, and to
Be paranoid and to
Lie, hate and fear, and to
Do what it takes to move through
I choose to live and to lie
Kill and give, and to die
Learn and love, and to
Do what it takes to step through

See my shadow changing
Stretching up and over me
Soften this old armor
Hoping I can clear the way
By stepping through my shadow
Coming out the other side
Step into the shadow
Forty six and two are just ahead of me

Burning Inside

"Will these dreams still follow me
On out of dark obscurity
Can't you see it up in the sky
As it kicks you and the face and lets you die
You never have the answers
And now you tell me the facts are lies
I really couldn't be bothered with you
Get out of my face and watch me die

Burning inside, burning inside

Absolution and a frozen room
Are the dreams of men below
I try to grab it, but the touch is hot
The mirror collapses, but the image cannot
I'm scared of the darkness in light
I scare myself 'cause I know I'm right
I see the evil in your savage eye
As it cuts right through the sky

Burning inside, burning inside, burning inside, burning inside
Burning inside, burning inside, burning inside, burning inside

Calling the mantra with a blade in the skin
Looking for the demons within
I feel the pain, it's the death and decay
But the lesson never fades away
Two little shadows turning away
Another man through the window pane
Another slave and a victim of fate
Another lesson in hate

Burning inside, burning inside, burning inside, burning inside
Burning inside, burning inside, burning inside, burning inside
"

She Sells Sanctuary

"Oh, the heads that turn
Make my back burn
And the heads that turn
Make my back burn

The sparkle in your eyes
Keeps me alive
And the sparkle in your eyes
Keeps me alive

And the world and the world
The world turns around
And the world and the world
The world drags me down

Oh, the heads that turn
Make my back burn
And the heads that turn
Make my back burn

The fire in your eyes
Keeps me alive
And the fire in your eyes
Keeps me alive

I'm sure in her you'll find
Your sanctuary
I'm sure in her you'll find
Your sanctuary

And the world and the world
The world turns around
And the world and the world
The world drags me down

Great choices. I'm very fond of every song you've mentioned. Excellent list!!
January 27, 2011
Glad you liked it. Stay tuned for the sequel...
January 28, 2011
Indeed, sir.
 
January 19, 2011
Excellent, *excellent* list, though now you've got me humming.

I had no idea that Mad World was Tears For Fears, since I've only ever heard the Donnie Darko version...
January 19, 2011
Yeah, the cover by Gary Jules is really spectacular in my opinion and I considered using that version here but I figured I'd give people a chance to listen to the original... which is fun since I love Tears for Fears.
January 19, 2011
That's the problem... Everybody Wants to Rule The World :-)
January 20, 2011
You could always "Shout" about it. ; )
January 20, 2011
But I hate to give Advice For The Young of Heart, just so you can Break It Down Again and go Head Over Heels.
January 20, 2011
LOL! Okay, you win. I tried to find a way to incorporate "Head Over Heels" into my response and couldn't do it.
January 20, 2011
:-)
 
January 19, 2011
Damn, you! Now, I've got several of these stuck in MY head. Disclaimer: I have all of them on my iPod. :-)
January 19, 2011
I took full responsibility for getting this music stuck in your head. : )
 
January 19, 2011
Awesome list, Count! Now these are going to be stuck in my head :P Putting The Smiths on my Pandora now!
January 19, 2011
YAY! I've been having so much fun listening to The Smiths and The Cure lately. I had "Girlfriend in a Coma" stuck in my head this morning.
 
January 17, 2011
Pretty creative list! Right now the song's stuck in my head are your # 2, Bon Jovi's "It's My Life" and your #5! Oh, every now and then I play a wrestling theme in my head LOL!
January 17, 2011
I absolutely love #5. The Cure was, is, and always will be awesome. In fact, everything off of the soundtrack to "The Crow" was damn great. As far as #2 goes, I actually prefer the Gary Jules cover featured in "Donnie Darko" but Tears for Fears has so many amazing songs that that's not really a point against them. I hope Debbie and Brian will enjoy this list. I think it's up their musical alleys.
