Lebowski's Friday Night "Name The Song From The Lyrics" thread! New Hints Added!

Please put the song number that you're responding to in the Subject Line, and the ANSWER ... in the message body ... no answers in the subject line por favor. TIA!

*** UNANSWERED - With Additional Hintage in bold***

and as i drank to you
you smiled at me
how could we say no?

she used to beeeeee


She don't remember the Queen of Soul
It's hard times befallen
The sole survivors
She thinks I'm crazy
But I'm just growing old

that behind every great man
there had to be a great woman!
so we're comin' out of the kitchen
'cause there's somethin' we forgot to say to you
we say _ _ _ _ _ _!

and i can see myself
let history repeat itself
reflecting how i feel for you

hey big woman
you made a bad boy outta me

ain't no risk now
in lettin' my love rain down on you

she don't mean no harm she just don't know what else to do about it

Love put me wise
to her love in disguise

she had the body of a venus
lord imagine my surprise

i look to
the sea

reflections in the waves
spike my memoryyyyyyyy

like i love you
i love you

*** ANSWERED - But you can still answer too if ya know the answer for reals ***

we got some groceries

who killed that bird up on your windowsill?

with your empty smile
and your hungry heart

but i'm here
in my mold

said i'm a mean machine
been drinkin' gasoline

rolling and riding slipping and sliding it's magic

there's no doubt you're in deep

i'll be around if you think you might

watch her watch the morning come

the insurgency began
and you missed it

does anybody wonder
anybody care?

conceived in love
sun is gonna shine above

he turned to me as if to say
'hurry boy it's waiting there for you'

tires spitting gravel

jimmy buffett - southern cross (live) excellent version of the CSN classic (flawless cowbell level)

Camerawork is awful, but the performance & sound is LEGIT.

I freaking love this song ... and Jimmy does it up right here, big time ...

t. rex - children of the revolution, 20th century boy (studio-1972) two non-album classics

Pretty sure Tim Curry had watched some Marc Bolan prior to playing Frank ...

the simple minds and a cast of thousands in rotterdam (1997) ... it's so freaking good!

Sometimes Doordash prompts for ridiculously large tips ... and I'm not a cheapskate ...

But I ordered a sandwich, chips, and brownie, total cost was $14.50.

The restaurant is .25 miles from a freeway onramp, and I'm like .4 miles from the very next offramp (the freeway drive is 1 mile, iow). It's literally no more than 10 minutes, if the signals go your way, it's about 7 minutes. Drive is 1.65 miles, with 1 mile of that on the freeway.

Doordash's recommended tip? $4.50.

And I'm sorry but that's out of hand. I changed it to $3.25 cause that seemed very fair. Note also I'm not in an apartment or anything, there's no parking issues at either end of this transportation, nor is there ANY traffic at 4pm on Saturday.

Am I wrong on this?

Davis, Adderley, Coltrane, Evans, Chambers, and Cobb - Stella by Starlight (studio - 1958)

It don't get a whole lot better than this ...

son volt - the globe & arkey blue (studio - 2021) a couple tracks from Jay & Co's new disc

Totally dig 'em both, reminiscent of Wide Swing Tremolo-era Son Volt. BTW, the louder you play 'em, the better they sound

you might convince me there's AS GOOD a heavy metal song as this one ... but not a better one!

This song kicks ass, top-to-bottom, every player in the band at the top of their game, just freaking rocking it.

I forget about how great it is til I put it on every 5 or so years, since 1982 when I bought the album (and saw them on this tour). But it always gets me pumped.

WARNING: Not a PETA-friendly video.
