Default What songs describe YOU?

If this is in the wrong forum, please move.


So, I'm sitting down, writing an essay on the Women's rights movement in America while listening to Rush, and Best I can comes on. I love this song, and while writing down something about some Ta'uk'mera complaining about being shoved behind a curtain (Ungrateful hoes), I began thinking about why. After about five seconds, it occurred to me. That song described me, my values, and my personality in perfect detail (except for the good times part. I'm still kind of a pussy on that, but I'm working on it. I just need to build up enough self-hatred.)

So, lets get on with it, what songs best describe you?

Lyrics button
[spoiler]Ive got a livin thats rough, a future thats tough
You know what I mean
Blankers and boasters, all the bluffers and posers
Im not into that scene

You can tell me that I got no class
Look around, youll see whos laughin last
Dont give me speeches cause theyre oh so droll
Leave me alone, let me rock and roll

Got an itchin to rock, a hate for small talk
Im funny that way
Got my sights on the stars, wont get that far
But Ill try anyway
I just like to please, dont like to tease
Im easy like that
Dont like long rests, I must confess
Im an impatient cat

I do the best that I can
Im just what I am
I do the best I can
Well, I know what I am

Rock and rollins a scream, makin millions my dream
Well, I do that a lot
Ill just give it a try, wont let good times pass me by
Theyre all Ive got[/spoiler]

IMO, Opheliac sums up my general personality and outlook quite nicely, gender differences aside :P Especially the second, third and fifth verses.

[spoiler=Lyrics]I'm your Opheliac
I've been so disillusioned
I know you'd take me back
But still I feign confusion
I couldn't be your friend
My world was too unstable
You might have seen the end

But you were never able
To keep me breathing
As the water rises up again
Before I slip away

You know the games I play
And the words I say
When I want my own way
You know the lies I tell
When you've gone through hell
And I say I can't stay
You know how hard it can be
To keep believing in me
When everything and everyone
Becomes my enemy and when
There's nothing more you can do
I'm gonna blame it on you
It's not the way I want to be
I only hope that in the end you will see
It's the Opheliac in me

I'm your Opheliac
My stockings prove my virtues
I'm open to attack
But I don't want to hurt you
Whether I swim or sink
That's no concern of yours now
How could you possibly think
You had the power to know how
To keep me breathing
As the water rises up again
Before I slip away

You know the games I play
And the words I say
When I want my own way
You know the lies I tell
When you've gone through hell
And I say I can't stay
You know how hard it can be
To keep believing in me
When everything and everyone
Becomes my enemy and when
There's nothing more you can do
I'm gonna blame it on you
It's not the way I want to be
I only hope that in the end you will see
It's the Opheliac in me

Studies show:
Intelligent girls are more depressed
Because they know
What the world is really like
Don't think for a beat it makes it better
When you sit her down and tell her
Everything gonna be all right
She knows in society she either is
A devil or an angel with no in between
She speaks in the third person
So she can forget that she's me

Doubt thou the stars are fire
Doubt thou the sun doth move
Doubt truth to be a liar
But never doubt
Doubt thou the stars are fire
Doubt thou the sun doth move
Doubt truth to be a liar
But never doubt I love

You know the games I play
And the words I say
When I want my own way
You know the lies I tell
When you've gone through hell
And I say I can't stay
You know how hard it can be
To keep believing in me
When everything and everyone
Becomes my enemy and when
There's nothing more you can do
I'm gonna blame it on you
It's not the way I want to be
I only hope that in the end you will see
It's the Opheliac in me[/spoiler]


Course, it was a toss up between that and Let the Record Show


And can everyone whack their lyrics in the old spoiler buttons? Will make it easier when posting all songs.

I think that Right Place, Wrong Time by Dr. John describes my life perfectly:

[spoiler]I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
I'd of said the right thing
But I must have used the wrong line
I been in the right trip
But I must have used the wrong car
My head was in a bad place
And I'm wondering what it's good for

I been the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
My head was in a place
But I'm having such a good time
I been running trying to get hung up in my mind
Got to give myself a little talking to this time

Just need a little brain salad surgery
Got to cure this insecurity
I been in the wrong place
But it must have been the right time
I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong song
I been in the right vein
But it seems like the wrong arm
I been in the right world
But it seems wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong

Slipping, dodging ,sneaking
Creeping hiding out down the street
See me life shaking with every who I meet
Refried confusion is making itself clear
Wonder which way do I go to get on out of here

I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
I'd have said the right thing
But I must have used the wrong line
I'd a took the right road
But I must have took a wrong turn
Would have made the right move
But I made it at the wrong time
I been on the right road
But I must have used the wrong car
My head was in a good place
And I wonder what it's bad for[/spoiler]

Baby got Back by Sir Mixalot


For you see I too get sprung when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist and a round thing in my face.

Note: This should be in the music forum section really...But if it's for us to talk about what songs mirror our lives perhaps not.

I think Come out Swinging by The Offspring sums me up pretty well.

[spoiler=lyrics]
You brace and hold it all inside
It's more than you can stand
No one around even tries
Tries to understand

Don't turn away, don't turn away
Come out swinging
Come out alone
They're in your way
But as long as you're swinging
Strong then you'll get by

Your pacing's wearing out a line
Right beside your bed
The scene replays a million times
Stuck inside your head

And though you stand in place
Your mind escapes
Read between the lies
Smile's on your face
You fake like you're ok

Don't turn away, don't turn away
Come out swinging
Out on your own
They're in your way
You may be stinging
But you'll get by
Don't turn away, don't turn away
Come out swinging
Never alone again
The pain inside can guide your way

Midnight, no sleep
Inside, you scream to
No one, hears you fall
Daylight, prove me today
One more try

Don't turn away, don't turn
Come out swinging
Come out alone
They're in your way
You may be stinging
But you'll get by
Don?t turn away, don't turn away
Come out swinging
Never alone again
Pain inside
Leads you through so you'll get by
[/spoiler]

Tentatively, The Outsider by APC

Still doesn't seem to cover me well enough though. It doesn't speak enough of my sheer awesomeness

"Ooooohhh, my ex says I'm lacking in depth..."

That's true of me all the time. Someday by The Strokes if you didn't know.
