    I am sitting here watching videos on my laptop.
    I am turning to videos I know stir deep emotions in my heart.
    And like a train wreck, I watch them, over and over again.

    Please add your own heart ripping song to this thread...

    I raise my hands, bow my head
    I'm finding more and more truth in the words written in red
    They tell me that there's more to life than just what i can see

    I can't quote the book
    The chapter or the verse
    You can't tell me it all ends
    In a slow ride in a hearse

    Well I saw you last night down on the avenue
    Your face was in the shadows but I knew that it was you
    You were standin' in the doorway out of the rain
    You didn't answer when I called out your name
    You just turned, and then you looked away like just another stranger waitin' to get blown away

    Point blank, right between the eyes
    Point blank, right between the pretty lies you fell
    Point blank, shot straight through the heart,
    Yea point blank, you've been twisted up till you've become just another part of it
    Point blank, you're walkin' in the sights,
    Point blank, livin' one false move just one false move away
    Point blank, they caught you in their sights
    Point blank, did you forget how to love, girl, did you forget how to fight.
    Point blank they must have shot you in the head
    Cause point blank, bang bang baby you're dead.

    Great song.
    Great story teller.

    Point Blank, great words when you forget who you are...
    Someone calls your name, but your don't recognize who they are looking for because it is not you any more.:sad-little:

    Them things don't seem to matter much to me now
    Tonight I'll be on that hill `cause I can't stop
    I'll be on that hill with everything I got
    Lives on the line where dreams are found and lost
    I'll be there on time and I'll pay the cost
    For wanting things that can only be found
    In the darkness on the edge of town

    I remember where I was when it came on the news that Lane Frost had been killed by Red Rock. I will never forget it.

    listen , even if you never heard it before, it stirs deep emotions

    for those who think this sounds hauntingly familiar. you must have watched the television show Buck Rodgers. These are the words to the music

    I'm glad you posted that. I'm a fan of classical, jazz, electronic and progressive/avant garde rock where lyrics are not or may not be present at all. These music forms rely totally on using the music itself to create moods and imagery. Listen to Holst's "The Planets" and specifically, "Mars, Bringer of War" and even not knowing the title, the music evokes power and a sense of force that one would dread. Or listen to Copeland and try not to think of manifest destiny, pioneers and wagon trains. Listen to Sousa and not get all patriotic and want to wave a flag or at least stand up and march. Or Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebee." Or what about Stevie Ray Vaughn's Riviera Paradise, listen to it and at least mentally you'll find yourself laid back, chilling out as though for the moment, you've found a sense of paradise. I absolutely love that song and blessed with the fact that I have guitarists in the house who can play it.

    Disney's epic Fantasia is a good example of how music can create a visual image where no prior lyrics existed but all one needs is a creative mind. I love Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition but Night on Bald Mountain is just killer!

    Lyrical song is everywhere with great and meaningful, thought provoking song but what really grabs my attention is a song writer who ignores lyrics and uses note and chord combinations along with various intervals to create as effective a visual image as any combination of words would!

    Now I must post a musical ying/yang if you will. From my prog (that's progressive if you don't know) and very bias musical roots, my alltime favorite guitarist who wrote the song Darktown.

    About the song:

    Performing with Steve are the likes of Paul Gilbert, Nuno Betttencourt and John Paul Johns. BTW: It was Steve who influenced the two hand tapping of Eddie Van Halen.

    and now the otherside of the coin. You gotta just love this and does it bring back memories. From a band that was pure fun but don't let the comedy overshadow that they were good players as well.

    Now thems profound lyrics, I don't care what ya say!

    What's even scarier is that Tuff Hedeman almost followed him on Bodacious

    Along with Amazing Grace, this song has done it for me... It was originally just instrumental, but lyrics have been written for it:

    Day is done, gone the sun,
    From the lake, from the hills, from the sky;
    All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.

    Fading light, dims the sight,
    And a star gems the sky, gleaming bright.
    From afar, drawing nigh, falls the night.

    Thanks and praise, for our days,
    'Neath the sun, 'neath the stars, neath the sky;
    As we go, this we know, God is nigh.

    Sun has set, shadows come,
    Time has fled, Scouts must go to their beds
    Always true to the promise that they made.

    While the light fades from sight,
    And the stars gleaming rays softly send,
    To thy hands we our souls, Lord, commend.

    TAPS aka Day is Done aka Butterfield's Lullaby

    In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
    Between the crosses row on row,
    That mark our place; and in the sky
    The larks, still bravely singing, fly
    Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago
    We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved, and now we lie
    In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe:
    To you from failing hands we throw
    The torch; be yours to hold it high.
    If ye break faith with us who die
    We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
    In Flanders fields.

    Thank you - everyone.

    I created a playlist with all songs mentioned in ths thread.

    Taps and Amazing Grace will always bring tears to my eyes.
    I forgot how instrumentals also create great emotion.

    Blessings to I need to go across the street and watch the Saints beat the Rams.
