Help me identify this song...

Last night I saw Bonnie "Prince" Billy. Scout Niblett was supporting. They sang a beatiful duet, a call and response about her love being like a pine tree, and then like a willow, and an oak etc. Anybody know this song? Thanks in advance.

Can anyone translate Turkish rap?

The documentary Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul introduced me to the Turkish rap music of Ceza (Bilgin Özçalkan). While I like the sound of it, I have no idea what is being said, and some of the song titles make me a bit nervous that I might be enjoying something dodgy (and exposing friends to it). Can anyone who speaks Turkish translate this? [more inside]

Does anyone know the lyrics to "Words" by Sangie Davis/ Lee Perry?

Reggae fans- Please help me figure out the complete lyrics to "Words" written by Sangie Davis and performed as a duet w/ Lee "Scratch" Perry and the Upsetters some time in the 70s. It appears on several compilations. I have looked everywhere for lyrics with no luck. I have tried to muddle through the recording- no use..... please help. It is the most beautiful, haunting song......

Dumbed Down Ditties

I was fascinated by this post about the changes made to the lyric of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" between the original and Sinatra's saccharine version. What are some other popular songs which started out with morbid or otherwise dark lyrics only to be "happied up" before hitting it big? (Not necessarily limited to Christmas Carols.)

No lyrics like Broadway lyrics, like no lyrics I know

I'm looking for the lyrics to the song "In My Own Lifetime," from the 1970 Broadway musical, "The Rothschilds." I know lyrics sites are spotty at best, pop-up and virus havens at worst, and probably all illegal...but maybe someone even knows the lyrics? Or can give me a line or two I can search on? The title, musical name, etc, pulled up nothing useful for me. Thanks!

Elvis Costello song

Elvis Costello fans, does anyone know the name of the following song? All I can remember (very vaguely) is that it's by Elvis & that the lyrics reference a closet upstairs where it's always Christmas, or something very similar to that.

Song Title Wanted

A friend of mine and I vividly remember a slightly cheesy, late 80s song that had a chorus along the lines of "Please tell them not to cry for me, it's a personal decision...(insert forgotten words here)...I'm just an old man dying to be free." Is this ringing any bells with anyone? We are both perplexed and any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
