    Wilfred Owen. The GOD of war poetry.

    And good job on the positive ID of the song. That was from WAAAAAY back when men were men and Anathema was a real doom metal band.

    (Just an aside, do you know the name of the other song on that Anathema album that quoted the same poet?)

    It's been 3 days already. I'm assuming Shadow Assassin is correct, but since he hasn't posted a new quote, I'm taking the IJA.

    You got your women all around, all around this town
    But I was trapped in love with you and I didn't know what to do


    Original artist, please.

    This sounds soooo familiar.

    Original artist...so is the most 'famous' or commonly-known not the original? :skeptic:

    The song is from 1982 and would fit best in the soul category. The group is from New York and this song is their only hit.

    It was coverd by Mariah Carey in her film, Glitter.

    Still no takers? More lyrics:
    You know I hopped into my car, didn't get very far, no
    Because I had you on my mind, why be so unkind
    You got your women all around, all around this town
    But I was trapped in love with you and I didn't know what to do


    And another hint - the song is found on Fever 105 radio station in GTA 3 Vice City.

    ...which your husband just returned to me a few days ago. :shake:

    Excuse me while I ALT+TAB for a few minutes...


    EDIT: Okay, that took longer than I thought - dang game kept distracting me at times, so I probably missed the song once or twice.

    "Last Night A DJ Saved My Life" - In Deep

    (This explains how I found the quote familiar since I wasn't really into soul in the 80's, and I consider it a point of pride that I have never seen 'Glitter'! :D )

    Correct. I figured more people would know about GTA 3 than Glitter. :p

    Yeah, that's so at least in my case...

    Anyway, let's change things up a little:

    For a canon in inversion is a dangerous diversion,
    And a bit of augmentation is a serious temptation,
    While a stretto diminution is an obvious allusion.


    EDIT:
    /me brushes teeth before speaking again ;)

    Okay, hintage - it's a song that talks about writing the particular type of song this is...

    EDIT2: Right...here's something that should help:
    The song type is the same as "Row row row your boat".

    RIght, since I'm apparently more obtuse than fog bank, I'm going to close this one by revealing the song to be Glenn Gould's So You Want To Write A Fugue?

    Being :sick: and currently nearly incapablae of coherent though, I'm leaving the Song Quote GAme up to the next IJA that can come up with somethig.

    Sorry for driving everyone away, and I'll promise to use mouthwash before I speak here again :D

    :D


    It's dark all day and it glows all night
    Factory smoke and acetylene light
    I face the day with me head caved in
    Looking like something that the cat brought in

    IJA:

    Cold-hearted orb, that rules the night
    Removes the color from our sight
    Red is grey, and yellow white
    But we decide which is right
    And which is an illusion

    This must be a trick question. The identical lyrics both start and end The Moody Blues album Days of Future Passed.

    The first song is The Day Begins, the last is The Late Lament (the more popular).

    And here I would have settled for "Knights in White Satin," which I heard on the radio last night. You're up.

    The Late Lament is always played as part of Knights in White Satin.

    'Cause the man from Mars stopped eatin' cars and eatin' bars
    And now he only eats guitars, get up!

    To walk within the lines
    Would make my life so boring
    I want to know that I have been
    To the extreme
