Oh Baby, Baby it's a Wild World ...

 

Wenn einer mit Vergnügen zu einer Musik in Reih und Glied marschieren kann, dann hat er sein großes Gehirn nur aus Irrtum bekommen, da für ihn das Rückenmark schon völlig genügen würde.

Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

 

Album: I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got

Sinéad O'Connor: I do not want what I haven't got

 

I'm walking through the desert
and I am not frightened although it's hot
I have all that I requested
and I do not want what I haven't got

 

Album: Innerversions

Stevie Wonder: Visions

 

But what I'd like to know

Is could a place like this exist so beautiful

Or do we have to find our wings and fly away

To the vision in our mind?

Album: Back On Top

Van Morrison: Philosophers Stone

 

I'm on the road again and I'm searching for

the philosophers stone ...

 

Album: SHERYL CROW

Sheryl Crow: If it makes you happy

 

I've been long, a long way from here
Put on a poncho, played for mosquitos,
And drank til I was thirsty again ...

 

Album: The People I Meet

Carol Elliott: Gypsy Spirit

 

Now that old Pacific ocean's not as peaceful as it claims

Cold, gray waves tried to pull me down

And when I followed Highway One into Los Angeles

Well, all the angels had left town ...

 

But nothing can break a gypsy spirit

There's no ache that can't be cured ...

 

Album: Tea for the Tillerman

Cat Stevens: On The Road To Find Out

 

Well, I left my happy home to see what I could find out.
I left my folk and friends with the aim to clear my mind out.
Well I hit the rowdy road, and many kinds I met there,
many stories told me of the way to get there.
So on and on I go, the seconds tick the time out,
there's so much left to know, and I'm on the road to find out ...


Album: The Soul Cages

Sting: Island Of Souls

 

One day he dreamed of the ship in the world
It would carry his father and he
To a place they would never be found
To a place far away from this town ...

Album: ... But Seriously

 

Phil Collins: Colours

 

All along the roadside 

people are standing
watching the sun
shielding their eyes
Brushing the flies from their face

 

 

Tell me, what can you say
Tell me, who do you blame
Like a mirror you see yourself
These people each have a name ...

 

Album: THE BEST OF EAGLES

Eagles: Hotel California

 

On a dark desert highway, cool wind in my hair
Warm smell of colitas, rising up through the air
Up ahead in the distance, I saw a shimmering light
My head grew heavy and my sight grew dim
I had to stop for the night ...

Album: Smash Hits

Jimi Hendrix: Highway Chile

 

He left home when he was seventeen.
The rest of the world he went on to see.
And everybody knows, boss,
A rolling stone gathers no moss.


Now you'd probably call him a tramp,
But it goes a little deeper than that
He's a Highway Chile.
Yeah!

Album: Sailing to Philadelphia

Mark Knopfler: wanderlust

 

Dead of night
I had a dream
Sky was bright yes and the
Fields were green
I was down the road
In a cloud of dust
Me and the wanderlust ...

Album: A Single Man

Elton John: Return To Paradise

 

It's paradise here where the sun meets the sea
There's nothing to fear and so much to be
But soon I must go, say goodbye to it all
That homeland of mine is beginning to call


Goodbye doesn't mean this has to be the end
Fading dreams grow cold as ice
And I got a feeling we will meet again
When we return to paradise ...

Album: Crest Of A Knave

Jethro Tull: The Waking Edge

 

Familiar shadows in my hotel room
are still here for the taking.
They seem to linger on as the street lights fade
and the empty dawn is breaking ...

 

 

Album: Discovery

 

Electric Light Orchestra: Midnight Blue

 

I see the lonely road that leads so far away,

I see the distant lights that left behind the day ...

Album: Seine großen Erfolge

John Denver: Leaving On A Jet Plane

 

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go,
I'm standing here outside the door,
I hate to wake you up to say good bye.
But the dawn is breakin', it's early mornin',
The taxi's waitin', he's blowin' his horn.
Already I'm so lone some I could die.

 

 

So kiss me and smile for me, 

Tell me that you'll wait for me,
Hold me like you'll never let me go.
Cause I'm leavin on a jet plane,
Don't know when I'll be back again.
Oh babe, I hate to go ...

Album: WISH YOU WERE HERE

 

Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here

 

We're just two souls swimming in a fish bowl,

year after year.

Running over the same old ground. What have we found?

The same old fears.

Wish you were here.

 

Album: FAMOUS LAST WORDS

 

Supertramp: Put on your old brown Shoes

 

Put on your old brown shoes
Right on your feet
Time to move on, get away
You know you paid your dues
Did all you could
Time to move on, no more to say ...

Album: The Concert in Central Park

 

Simon & Garfunkel: The Sounds of Silence

 

In restless dreams I walked alone,
narrow streets of cobblestone,
'neath the halo of a street lamp ...

 

Album: BORN IN THE USA

 

Bruce Springsteen: Cover me

 

The times are tough now

Just getting tougher

This old world is rough

It's just getting rougher ...

Das Beste, was aus einer misslungenen Beziehung entstehen kann,

sind ein paar gute Songs.

Marianne Faithful
