Music; what's your song?

So, as I noticed, no-one's asked in a thread before about "Music" and what your taste is. So, here we are. A place to express yourself in the musical arts.

If you wish, you can post your favourite genre of music, your favoured band or even one of your most adored song. Do what you will but keep it musical.

Any reference to "cabbage slapping" will get deleted from this topic.

Favourite Genre: Ska.
Favourite Band: (Even though contradicting the favourite genre) Queen.
Favourie Song: (One of them is) 99 Red Balloons by Goldfinger.

You and I in a little toy shop
Buy a bag of balloons with the money we've got
Set them free at the break of dawn
'Til one by one they were gone
Back at base, bugs in the software
Flash the message, something's out there
Floating in the summer sky
Ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine red balloons
Floating in the summer sky
Panic bells, it's red alert
There's something here from somewhere else
The war machine springs to life
Opens up one eager eye
Focusing it on the sky
As ninety-nine red balloons go by

Ninety-nine decisions treat
Ninety-nine ministers meet
To worry, worry, super scurry
Call out the troops now in a hurry
This is what we've waited for
This is it, boys, this is war
The President is on the line
As ninety-nine red balloons go by

Neunundneunzig Kriegsminister
Streichholz und Benzinkanister
Hielten sich für schlaue Leute
Witterten schon fette Beute
Riefen: Krieg und wollten Macht
Mann, wer hätte das gedacht?
Daß es einmal so weit kommt
Wegen neunundneunzig Luftballons
Neunundneunzig Luftballons

Ninety-nine dreams I have had
And every one a red balloon
It's all over, and I'm standing pretty
In the dust that was a city
I could find a souvenir
Just to prove the world was here
Here it is, a red balloon
I think of you and let it go


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

Re: Music; what's your song?

I like popcorn. I would do a Zach on it, but that would mean that I'd have to type "Do do doo do do doo do" repeatedly.
As I've already said, I HATE the crazy frog for ruining this song.

Re: Music; what's your song?

or this one


I was sitting in my chair
just waiting there
waiting for my love to arrive
and along came my prince
my beautiful love
and guess what he said
he said I've fallen inlove (with you)
and I said it is so nice
just to be your wife
it is great even to be your mate
great to be your mate
I lova you




I hope you like it
because I had fun making it tongue

Ok now greenday rocked until recently, their new stuff is a bit mainstream and sucky! My chemical romance rox so much and i am going to see them in a month and a few days! I love loads of music apart from all chav music *throws up* I am going to see the blues brothers the weekend after this with a guy i really like (unfortunately he is 4 years older than me and has a girlfriend) I was listening to robbie williams the other night (my secret passion) I had the used in my head all last week (box full o sharp objects, blue n yellow etc.) and it is a real shame blink are no longer around! I like TMBG as i saw someone wrote about them and i am currently into Death Cab For Cutie!
