name that song? it's killin' me...

what's the name of that song, couple years back, cello, acoustic guitars, male and female duet, b&w video with the camera slowly spinning from the inside of a circle of singers/musicians and a portion of the lyrics go something like "hurricane come knock me down" (or maybe it was 'tornado'?) is it just me or is it impossible to search for song lyrics on the intarwebs!

Can anyone make out the complete lyrics to "Goodbye, My Friend" (sample here), the catchy but hard-to-decipher theme song from the 1974 Italian movie "Street Law," starring Franco Nero?

I want my lyrics to scroll on a mac!

My friend had this really neat program on his windows computer that I'd like to have, but I have a mac. It was some kind of player that would show the lyrics of the song and actually scroll them while hilighting the appropriate line. Not quite like karaoke, since the individual words weren't hilighted, just the line, but close. It was pretty neat. He said it was ttplayer, but everything I google on that comes up in Chinese! I'm running the latest version of iTunes and Mac OS X Tiger. Suggestions?

Song lyric - "Getting Down to Business"

SongLyricsFilter: First line (and refrain throughout the song, I believe) is "Getting down to business." Sounds vaguely 70ish with a sort of pump-up beat. Google is getting me nowhere. Any ideas you may have are much appreciated.

Have lyrics, need title... please?

Probably a long shot, but Any one knows this song with lyrics something like: "Band keeps playing..... on the radio....." Sounds like Bryan Ferry or Tom petty. Kinda slow, moody. I remember knowing who did it b4, but for the life of me can't remember anymore. I was at Cosi eating lunch when i heard it.. Thanks a bunch guys...

"I hate humanity and I wouldn't hesitate to kill"

I'm trying to remember a metal song with the lyric "I hate humanity and I wouldn't hesitate to kill." I'd have sworn it was Edge of Sanity, or Carcass, but no dice. Probably mid-90s vintage; almost certainly a growling vocalist; I'm pretty sure this was the opening line.

Please help me (re)discover the name of this (60s/70s?) song and the band that released it.

Can you identify these old lyrics or doggerel verses?

My late grandfather (1916-2000) wrote a couple dozen pages of memoirs which he preceded with some untitled & unattributed verses which I suppose are either song lyrics or lines from a doggerel poem. No-one in the family recognizes them, and the subsequent pages cast no light on them. I'm curious to know their origin, but have had no success in finding them on-line. [more inside]
