Re: L.C. Song Hunt

Hi Roman,

Good guess, though that's not the one. You are on the right track as "Tonight Will Be Fine"
and the song under current search involve the evening.

Re: L.C. Song Hunt

Hi, A Latin phrase recently entered into this thread. Just came across another one elsewhere. It reminded me of the content of a Leonard Cohen song and thought that it could have made for a good alternate title for the song, despite (or maybe because of) its being Latin (and not a language that's sp...

Re: L.C. Song Hunt

Hi,

Two songs utilize words that appear in the Book of Ruth (King James Version). One
of the songs is written by L.C., The other is covered by him. Please name the songs.

Re: L.C. Song Hunt

Hi Roman,

That would be "Dear Heather."

(The simplicity and succinctness of the song's lyrics may remind people
of William Carlos Williams' poem "The Red Wheelbarrow." Of course, this
has nothing to do with the question.)

Re: Ira Hayes Back In The News

Hi Kush,

Glad you watched it. Knew you'd appreciate it. I don't know the answers to the questions you posed;
wondered about the same thngs. I'm glad that someone made the recording and that it survived;
it's a valuable historic/cultural artifact.

Re: L.C. Song Hunt

Hi Hartmut, "Democracy" may be the song. Here's why: pedicures: "Tiananmen Square," protesters were on their feet fire extinguishers: "sirens" spectacles: "wars against disorder" cigars: "ashes of the gay" space exploring: "beneath the lunar sway" life vests: "Sail on, sail on / O mighty Ship of Sta...

Re: L.C. Song Hunt

Hi Gentle Reader,

"Bird On The Wire" and "The Future" are two songs that mention a baby.

"Bird On The Wire": "Like a baby, stillborn"
"The Future": "Destroy another fetus now"

Not happy references. Forgive me if they aren't the songs you had in mind.

Re: L.C. Song Hunt

Hi Gentle Reader,

You are correct, twice over, with "Born In Chains" and "Love Itself." Hadn't thought of "Born In Chains."
The next question is yours, if you want it.

Hi,

Motes are significant in what song? Let's exclude "Show Me The Place" as a possibility.

Re: L.C. Song Hunt

Hi Roman, You are correct, though "Lullaby" isn't the one I have in mind. "Lullaby" implicitly references (or draws from) a number of nursery rhymes. "Lullaby" has gentle, non-predatory events, as a good lullaby should: "Well the mouse ate the crumb / Then the cat ate the crust / Now they've fallen ...
