Re: Story Songs

Post by rovingcowboy »

no i don't believe "I'm my own grandpa" fits that discription..

lonzo and oscar did the song about him finding a girl then
his dad finding the girls daughter and making the mess out of the grandpa line.
he was not happy about the way it all turned out.
and he was not blaming the girl but his dad for it.

wouldn't the song "welcome to my world" be a better fit? maybe not it's just another guess. :-?

Have another song for y'all. Here goes: A guy finds a girl, marries her, becomes a father, becomes a grandfather, and it is all her fault. He blames her the whole way through the song and even the title gives the reason he blames her.
Sounds LIke song called Kiss'es Sweeter then Wine. by I Think Johnny Horton.

Although it's not a specifically a story song, the Shankus song brought this one to mind: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCwYve87iKA

One more story song to add: "The Saga Begins" by "Weird Al" Yankovic (the entire story of "Star Wars: Episode I" in the space of one song!)

This is a terrific song. It caught the edited version as the closing theme for the early episodes of the anime series "Bleach" and had to find it on CD (its available on the first Bleach soundtrack collection). Rei Fu has a terrific voice and I hope her albums will be released in the U. S.

I really like this song used in the1st season; it's just so soothing and calm. Though i'm not quite good at Japanese, to me Rie Fu is not like a typical Jpop artist..
