Sitting in the car. With the radio on. A song comes on and the vocalist sings his lines. I hum along. I do air drums. Then a word or phrase resounds in my mind. "It's a game title," I think to myself. Then I think of the game. If a fellow gamer is sitting next to me then we spend the next half hour or so talking about that game. It is all the song's fault. I swear.

Sympathy For The Devil

I stuck around at St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a-time for a change
Killed the czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain

I rode a tank
Held a general's rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank

Into the abyss I’ll fall-the eye of horus
Into the eyes of the night-watching me go
Green is the cat’s eye that glows-in this temple
Enter the risen osiris-risen again.

Revelations

O God of earth and altar
Bow down and hear our cry
Our earthly rulers falter
Our peolple drift and die
The walls of gold entombe us
The swords of scorn divide
Take not thy thunder from us
But take away our pride

Just a babe in a black abyss
No reason for a place like this
The walls are cold and souls cry out in pain
An easy way for the blind to go
A clever path for the fools who know
The secret of the hanged man - the smile on his lips

Leningrad by Billy Joel

Viktor was born in the spring of '44
And never saw his father anymore
A child of sacrifice, a child of war
Another son who never had a father after Leningrad

Went off to school and learned to serve the state
Followed the rules and drank his vodka straight
The only way to live was drown the hate
A Russian life was very sad
And such was life in Leningrad

Love For Sale by the Manhattan Transfer (hey, isn't Manhattan a game, too? Extra Credit!)

Love for sale
Advertising young love for sale
Love that's fresh and still unspoiled
Love that's only slightly soiled
Love - yes come get my love because it's right here for sale

Who will buy
Who would like to sample my supply
Who's prepared to pay the price
For a trip to paradise
Love for sale

Let the poets pipe of love in their childish way
I've known every type of love better far than they
If you want the thrill of love,
I've been through the mill of love
Old love, new love, every love but true

Love for sale
Advertising young love for sale
If you want to buy my wares
Follow me and climb the stairs
Love for sale

Warrior Knights from the Hit Musical "Grease!"

Warrior lovin' had me a blast - Warrior lovin', happened so fast
I met a girl crazy for me - I met a boy, cute as can be
Warrior days driftin' away, to uh-oh those Warrior knights

Tell me more, tell me more, did you get to his keep?
Tell me more, tell me more, like, does he have some sheep?

She rode by me, horse got a cramp - he went by me, right by my camp
I saved her life, she nearly drowned - he showed off, splashing around
Warrior sun, something's begun, but uh-oh those Warrior knights

Tell me more, tell me more, was it hard laying siege?
Tell me more, tell me more, did they call you "my liege"?

Took her dancin' in the Promenade - fine romancin', my heir was made
We made out under the dock - we stayed out until ten o'clock
Warrior fling don't mean a thing, but uh-oh those Warrior Knights

Tell me more, tell me more, that you took lots of gold
Tell me more, tell me more, cause she sounds really old!

He got friendly, holdin' my sable - well she got friendly, down in the
stable
He was sweet, just turned eighteen - well she was good, you know what I
mean
Warrior heat, boy and girl meet, but uh-oh those Warrior Knights

Tell me more, tell me more, how much blood did you spill?
Tell me more, tell me more, did the plague make you ill?

It turned colder, that's where it ends - so I told her we'd still be
friends
Then we made our true love vow - wonder what she's doin' now
Warrior dreams ripped at the seams, but oh, those Warrior Kni---ights!

Tell me more, tell me more.

Sing Along!

Ramble On

Mines a tale that cant be told,
My freedom I hold dear;
How years ago in days of old
When magic filled the air,
Twas in the darkest depths of mordor
I met a girl so fair,
But gollum, and the evil one crept up
And slipped away with her.

Trinkets worn with colours matching, 'saddened eyes' has lost its magic touch
People from a distance will have crossed an ever-stretching sea of sand
Artificial flowers cannot die for life within them is illusion
Talisman, talisman grace my hand

Holding her breath ’cause there’s danger and love in the air.

Puerto Rico, You lovely island . . .
Island of tropical breezes.
Always the pineapples growing,
Always the coffee blossoms blowing . . .

Puerto Rico . . . You ugly island . . .
Island of tropic diseases.
Always the hurricanes blowing,
Always the population growing . . .
And the money owing,
And the babies crying,
And the bullets flying.
I like the island Manhattan.
Smoke on your pipe and put that in!

I like to be in America!
O.K. by me in America!
Ev'rything free in America
For a small fee in America!
