Although I did an extensive list orginally I realize (after reading all of this thread) one tune actually was omitted by me. It is literally sung by the Devil ("Mr. Applegate") in DAMN YANKEES, and it is his litany of "wonderful" moments he remembers (like "There was Bonaparte, he was a mean one...", and the Stock Market crash). In the middle of the song he has this charming couplet:

"I remember the morn,
Jack the Ripper was born!

Those were the good old days!!"

If you catch the movie with Tab Hunter and Ray Walston (as "Applegate") when he sings that you see Jack approach a figure of a woman on a bed!

As I was perusing this reanimated thread, the voice of Martha Davis of the Motels came to mind- "Only the Lonely can play."

Depeche Mode - "Strangelove"

Strangelove
Strange highs and strange lows
Strangelove
That's how my love goes
Strangelove
Will you give it to me
Will you take the pain
I will give to you
Again and again
And will you return it

There'll be times
When my crimes
Will seem almost unforgivable
I give in to sin
Because you have to make this life liveable
But when you think I've had enough
From your sea of love
I'll take more than another riverfull
Yes, and I'll make it all worthwhile
I'll make your heart smile

Strangelove
Strange highs and strange lows
Strangelove
That's how my love goes
Strangelove
Will you give it to me
Will you take the pain
I will give to you
Again and again
And will you return it

There'll be days
When I'll stray
I may appear to be
Constantly out of reach
I give in to sin
Because I like to practise what I preach
I'm not trying to say
I'll have it all my way
I'm always willing to learn
When you've got something to teach
And I'll make it all worthwhile
I'll make your heart smile

Pain will you return it
I'll say it again - pain
Pain will you return it
I'll say it again - pain
Pain will you return it
I'll say it again - pain
Pain will you return it
I won't say it again

Strangelove
Strange highs and strange lows
Strangelove
That's how my love goes
Strangelove
Will you give it to me

Nice one, Moonbegger &, (according to some sources) MJK was a mother.

Surprised Elton John hasn't had a mention yet:

Funeral For A Friend / Love Lies Bleeding
Tumblety'd Connection

James Harvey's Wife: My Old Man's a Dustman
Blotchy Face: There's A Hole In My Bucket
My Name Is Jack

Cheers,

Traffic: No Face, No Name, No Number:

I'm looking for a girl who has no face
She has no name, or number
And so I search within his lonely place
Knowing that I won't find her
Well, I can't stop this feeling deep in inside me
Ruling my mind
I feel no sound

Don't know where I'm bound

The scenery is all the same to me
Nothing has changed or faded
I'm a part of it, some part of me
Painted cool green, and shaded
So, try to find myself must be the only way
To feel free

This is an MJK song methinks

Regards, Bridewell

For Kosminski: "Aqualung" by Jethro Tull

Aqualung

Sitting on a park bench
eyeing little girls with bad intent.
Snot running down his nose
greasy fingers smearing shabby clothes.
Drying in the cold sun
Watching as the frilly panties run.
Feeling like a dead duck
spitting out pieces of his broken luck.
Sun streaking cold
an old man wandering lonely.
Taking time
the only way he knows.
Leg hurting bad,
as he bends to pick a dog-end
he goes down to the bog
and warms his feet.

Feeling alone
the army's up the rode
salvation la mode and
a cup of tea.

Aqualung my friend
don't start away uneasy
you poor old sod, you see, it's only me.
Do you still remember
December's foggy freeze
when the ice that
clings on to your beard is
screaming agony.
And you snatch your rattling last breaths
with deep-sea-diver sounds,
and the flowers bloom like
madness in the spring.

Perhaps MJD for the last verse!

Regards, Bridewell
