You seem so sad...why not smile

Stop your messing around
Better think of your future,
Time to straighten right out,
Creating problems in town…

  • The Specials “Message to you Rudy”

Thanks, Kelly. You’re right. It’s weird hearing Neil Young singing about shooting his love. This is the same guy who wrote Cinnamon Girl. I guess we’re all multi faceted beings.

This time tomorrow where will we be
On a spaceship somewhere
Sailing across an empty sea…

Kinks reference

When I was just a kid in the 70s it was a considerable amount of time before I became completely aware of Neil outside the context of being another sensitive singer/songwriter type in the vein of someone like James Taylor and started to become more aware of his work with Crazy Horse. Not to mention his many other connections to other bands and artists.

I wanna be emaciated
I wanna hear one song without thinking of you
I wish I was on a spaceship
Just me and my dog and an impossible view
I dream about it
And I wake up falling…

  • boygenius “Me & My Dog”

This is Major Tom
To Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

(Bowie lyric)

I thought that they were angels
But to my surprise
We climbed about their starship
And headed for the skies

Come sail away, come sail away
Come sail away with me


Get your ticket to that wheel in space
While there’s time
The fix is in
You’ll be a witness to that game of chance in the sky
You know we’ve got to win

Donald Fagen lyric ref


Wheel in the sky keeps on turning
Don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow


And the big wheel keep on turning
Neon burning up above
And I’m just high on the world…

When I’m feeling weak
And my pain walks down a one way street
I look above
And I know I’ll always be blessed with love

(Robbie Williams ref- Happy Valentine’s y’all!

I’m walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the borderline
Of the edge, and where I walk alone

Green Day lyric

Let me ride on the wall of death one more time
Let me ride on the wall of death one more time
You can waste your time on the other rides
But this is the nearest to being alive
Let me take my chances on the wall of death

Richard Thompson lyric ref

Meet me in the Crowd
People people
Throw your love around
Love me love
Take it into town
Happy happy
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow

Er- can’t think!

Come on, you know! :smile:

Johnny the King walks these streets without her in the rain looking for a leather jacket and a girl who wrote her name forever…

  • Rickie Lee Jones “We Belong Together”

He’ll be making like a bee line, heading for the border line, goin’ for broke
Sayin’ one more hit ought to do it
This joint ain’t nothin’ to it
One more for the road…

  • Boz Scaggs “Lido Shuffle”


Juliet, the dice were loaded from the start
and I bet, and you exploded into my heart

  • Dire Straits, Romeo and Juliet

Baby, I can’t stay, you got to roll me
And call me the tumblin’ dice
Always in a hurry, I never stop to worry
Don’t you see the time flashin’ by

The Stones

And if it’s all for nothing
All the roadrunning
Has been in vain

Mark Knopler & Emmylou Harris lyric ref

I’ll be your Emmylou and I’ll be your June
If you’ll be my Gram and my Johnny too
I’m not asking much of you
Just sing, little darling, sing with me
