    Paul knows scads of lyrics, let's see whut he DOAN know.

    RULES:
    1. Gotta be a standard from the repertoire, the American Popular Song - no lyrics somebody wrote to Brownie's solo on SANDU, no Beatles tunes etc.
    2.First line of tune OR if the first line of the tune is the title, the first line of the bridge(like YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT LOVE IS).
    3. ALSO ACCEPTABLE - first line of the verse

    Which might be another nice contest, how many verses do we all know.

    HALF CREDIT - he gets the title
    FULL CREDIT - he gets the title and the rest of the lyrics



    I'm starting with

    When Autumn sings her lullabies...

    and
    Old man sunshine, listen you, don't you tell me dreams come true...
     
  2. Sounds like a great idea…

    Here's one:

    "Times have changed…"

  5. just try it and i'll start a riot. BUT NOT FOR ME>

    Now, wait here Eddie...I don't know the rest of the verse, but I do know the rest of the tune's lyrics ....what happens then?

    Anyway: They're writing songs of love, but not for me.
    A lucky star's above, but not for me. With love to lead the way, i've found more skies of grey than any Russian play can gaurantee.
    I was a fool to fall and get that way. Hi ho, alas, and also lack a day. Although I can't dismiss the mem'ry of her kiss, I guess she's not for me.

    There ya go and I didn't look it up. But I could have or also could have called a bunch of Chick singers, which I Really don't want to do.
    But I DOAN wanna play 'cause it would be too easy to cheat.
    What was the first one? Autumn leaves?
    And Wil....VERSE TO ANYTHING GOES!
     
  6. Here's, to me,the most famous verse in the history of modern popular music: And now the purple dusk of twilight time..........
    If ya don't know this one.....You ain't a bass player!
    And we all know Frank recorded this verse ONLY.

    I'm not American -- can I play?

    Stardust.
     
  8. Right....Lemme change that to Bass players.
     
  9. …very good!

    OK - let's see now…

    "Have you seen the well to do…"

    NO PEEKING (i.e. GOOGLE)!!!

    (by the way I'm not American - although I've lived here for the past 21 years…)
     
  10. I think it's "Puttin' on the Ritz"
    That was just luck, because I played with a singer who did it.
    Could we please hold it down to tunes we'd enjoy playing in the jazz genre??? I mean like, nice tunes...Nothin' personal Wil...
     
  11. Well, I enjoy playing "Puttin' On the Ritz"…

    Hey, no offense taken - but isn't that a bit subjective? One man's meat etc.…

    Here's an idea:

    You post a list of tunes which you think are "nice", and we'll try and stump you by asking you to guess their first lines…

    :meh:

    …and then we all have to down a shot of neat absinth, and one of us has to leave the room, and the other has to guess who just left…

    Absolutely, 3-CARD.

    Somehow this feels a bit like a tattoo contest at a Metallica convention...
     
  15. I felt a bump and heard that old "beg your pardon"
    Suddenly I saw Polka dots and moon beams all around a pug-nosed dream.
    The music started and was I the perplexed one. I heard somebody say may I have the next one.
    Suddenly...................................
    Bridge
    There were questions in the eyes of other dancers as we floated o'er the floors. There were questions, but my heart knew all the answers, and maybe just a few things more.
    Now, in a cottage built of lilacs and laughter. I know the meaning of the words "ever after"
    Now I see polka dots and moonbeams when I kiss my pug-nosed dream.
    There ....enough! I slept badly last night trying to remember those mothers.....
     

  16. I agree!!!!! Lets quit now! But Eddie, what was "When Autumn sings her lullabies"??

    When Autumn sings her Lullabies
    and green leaves turn to gold,
    I remember
    last September you and I
    said good bye
    whispering we would be returning when
    Autumn comes again

    Now Autumn roams the hills once more
    but you forgot your vow
    and here am I with only memories
    only lonely memories
    autumn memories
    of you

    Love
    when the leaves are turning
    I get a hungry yearning
    for your arms

    Love
    when a heart is sober
    it counters bright October's golden charms

    The flaming moon
    reminds me of
    the night of love that we once knew
    each shining star's a love affair
    whispering that you'll be returning when
    Autumn comes again
    and you'll be
    beside me
    making all my autumn dreams
    come true


    It's a beautiful ballad called AUTUMN NOCTURNE, I've got an instrumental version by Lou Donaldson, a vocal version by Cassandra Wilson and there's a great bass feature on Neal Miner's first record, THE REAL NEAL (which if everbody doan got, you should get it). The italicized line I'm not sure of, if anybody knows, please chime in.


    OK, how about

    All the things we did together
    I remember when we're apart...
     
  18. Is this The Things we Did Last Summer"?
    I almost hope it isn't because I may not know all the words.
    Of course Autumn Nocturne, I hate to admit i've used this lovely tune as a QUOTE!! So SORRY!
    We better quit Eddie ....we're boring everybody
    I'll bet all the cats are saying: " I gotta hurry and log on to TBDB so I can watch Fuqua And Warburton play this fabulous GAME!!!

    Damn I should have some money on this!

    Naw, it's the bridge to TOO LATE NOW

    Too late now
    To forget your smile,
    The way we’d cling
    When we danced awhile.
    Too late now
    To forget, and go on
    To someone new.

    Too late now
    To forget your voice,
    The way one word
    Makes my heart rejoice.
    Too late now
    To imagine myself
    Away from you.

    All the things we’ve done
    Together
    I relive when we’re apart.
    All the tender fun
    Together
    Stays on in my heart.

    How could I
    Ever close the door,
    And be the same as I was before.
    No, darling, I can’t anymore.
    It’s too late now.
