High Fidelity Challenge Part II

Posted by Ross

Hmmm... get work done or play a new blog game? Not much of a contest there, at least not when it's a rainy Monday in LA and I've got 45 minutes before karate.

Top Five Lyrics that Move Your Heart

Since we're featuring three songs in our wedding, they'll take up the first slots...

1) The Beach Boys - God Only Knows

I may not always love you
But long as there are stars above you
You never need to doubt it
I'll make you so sure about it

God only knows what I'd be without you

2) George Harrison - What Is Life

What I feel - I can't say-
But my love is there for you any time
of day
But if it's not love - That you need-
Then I'll try my best to make everything
succeed

(and tell me) What is my life
without your love? -and tell me, who am I
without you, by my side?

3) The Beatles - Here, There and Everywhere

To lead a better life I need my love to be here...

Here, making each day of the year
Changing my life with a wave of her hand
Nobody can deny that there's something there

There, running my hands through her hair
Both of us thinking how good it can be
Someone is speaking but she doesn't know he's there

I want her everywhere and if she's beside me
I know I need never care
But to love her is to need her everywhere
Knowing that love is to share

Each one believing that love never dies
Watching her eyes and hoping I'm always there

I want her everywhere and if she's beside me
I know I need never care
But to love her is to need her everywhere
Knowing that love is to share

Each one believing that love never dies
Watching her eyes and hoping I'm always there

To be there and everywhere
Here, there and everywhere

4) Warren Zevon - Keep Me In Your Heart

Shadows are falling and I'm running out of breath
Keep me in your heart for awhile

If I leave you it doesn't mean I love you any less
Keep me in your heart for awhile

When you get up in the morning and you see that crazy sun
Keep me in your heart for while

There's a train leaving nightly called when all is said and done
Keep me in your heart for while

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-li-li-lo
Keep me in your heart for while

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-li-li-lo
Keep me in your heart for while

Sometimes when you're doing simple things around the house
Maybe you'll think of me and smile

You know I'm tied to you like the buttons on your blouse
Keep me in your heart for while

Hold me in your thoughts, take me to your dreams
Touch me as I fall into view
When the winter comes keep the fires lit
And I will be right next to you

Engine driver's headed north to Pleasant Stream
Keep me in your heart for while

These wheels keep turning but they're running out of steam
Keep me in your heart for while

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-li-li-lo
Keep me in your heart for while

Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-li-li-lo
Keep me in your heart for while

Keep me in your heart for while

5) The Beatles - The End

And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make.

Top Five Live Musical Experiences in chronological order

Make that Top Six. Sorry, just couldn't keep it to five.

By the way, I think it's only fair I state for the record, Bekka and I have tickets for Wilco at the beautiful Greek Theater in the middle of the June, and then, September 4, SIXTH ROW tickets to see Brian Wilson (these are the best tickets I've ever gotten BY FAR)... so the top concert list might very well be changing in the near future.

1) Ray Davies... The Storyteller... John Anson Ford Amphitheater... 10/19/01
2) The Who... First show after Entwistle's death... Hollywood Bowl... 7/01/02
3) Bob Dylan... Wiltern Theater... 10/15/02
4) Lou Reed... Animal Serinade... Wiltern Theater... 6/24/03
5) Neil Young... Greendale... The Greek Theater... 7/22/03
6) They Might Be Giants... UCLA Royce Hall... 4/17/04
