The Lyrics

On the dark side of the moon, cool change I'm feeling
Smell of margaritas, to bring back that loving
Up ahead in the distance, Sammy drove 55, whoa
And I heard "Heavy" and got sick of it
Life is a highway, I'll go

There she listened to "My Way"
And I heard "Ring My Bell"
No one there's dancing with themselves
They all just listen to "Highway To Hell"
I heard Lit and Candlebox, won't you show me the way
I heard voices carry near the door
I know I heard them say

Welcome to the hotel the old bands trashed
Such a crazy place
Such a crazy pace
All the rooms booked at the hotel the old bands trashed
You want Ozzy's bat? We can find you that

Some here think Tiffany's twisted, buy me a mercedes benz
Some guests still like to listen to Beach Boys, or "Theme From Friends"
Hey now dance everybody, sweet Caroline
We'll dance 'cause we want to, and listen to "Shine"

I saw Tenille and Captain
Helped them drink their wine
They said that the sky's had a spirit here- yeah, for the longest time
And still those voices do carry from miles away
Wake you up in the cold air here tonight
Just to hear them say

Welcome to the hotel the old bands trashed
They go crazy here
Bourbon, scotch and beer
They're livin' on a prayer at "Hotel The Old Bands Trashed"
What a big surprise, they're now throwin' pies

Dancing on the ceiling
Baby, there's some ice, ice
And she said "Why are you still walkin' 'round here, please take my advice"
"All of our guests are deadheads,
So run right out of here
They're crazy about Steely Dan
And they're here most of the year"

Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the doors
But the whole place was painted black
Couldn't find them anymore
'Relax,' said the nightshift
You can use the five stairsteps.
I ran away, didn't say goodbye
Oh, and I trashed my schweppes!

Nice idea, but it didn't quite work out... in the long run.

Nostalgic and excellent story telling-5's

Thanks John, Alvin, Michael, and AFW.

This is great. A few lines seemed forced but TMGLTM makes up for that and then some. This could do well in SOTM.

555, I love the references, very good over all.

(SOTM) A virtual encyclopedia of music.

(SOTM) Ha! Very cool idea. Some teeny, tiny pacing problems, but that is easily forgiven.

Thanks Agri and Cat.

SOTM-ok
bobpiecheese - February 10, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Um, not sure what to say. Pacing's a bit stretched, and I don't get it.

Thanks Max and Bob.

The parody idea in itself is great, beyond 5 for funny if that was allowed, but you thrashed the pacing a bit too much IMHO. Also, there are some enjoyable and very clever references (the Ozzy's bat line - LOL) but again I can't help thinking much more could have been milked out of the subject - maybe even an SOTM winner (at least on my list) - if it had stayed in the workshop longer. But again that's IMHO.

(SOTM) i'm crazy about steely dan too. i think the night shift should have remained the original night man, and that night man should have sang "relax" rather than just saying it, but this is just me. otherwise, it's alright. favorite part is the painted black reference
Red Ant - February 12, 2006 - Report this comment
(SOTM) See above, and I got about 24 of your references, quite a bit to pack into one song.

Interesting way of getting all those songs in there, and very funny... 5's

(SOTM) Very, very cleverly constructed, Larry!

Phil Alexander - February 27, 2006 - Report this comment
It was pretty clever, I guess, but only sparked in places: I thought the "You want Ozzy's bat? We can find you that" was funny... but "We've got most of that" might have been funnier ;-)

(SOTM) I must have gotten lost somewhere...you have a lot of good music references but the pacing seems odd.
