    Default Rock Lyric Cliché Thread

    I heard a Bon Jovi song on the radio today (I think it was "Lay Your Hands On Me") and it had a bunch of clichés I've heard a million times in rock songs....so I thought a thread to document these cliché s that we hear over and over might be in order (probably not, but I've had a couple and the judgement is not all there right now )

    Anyway, here's a couple to get started:

    It seems that rock songs seem to often have "Satisfaction Guaranteed"

    or they will be doing something, usually Partying or Screwing "all night long" or the alternative "Till the morning light"

    Also, the chicks in songs seem to be sooooo hot, that they "Can make a blind man see"

    And when taking a trip....don't forget your "Suitcase full of dreams" on that "road to nowhere"

    Ok linkers....take it away .....(time for another beer.....)

    Take it easy on that ale, good sir.

    Good topic, though. Might I add...

    *The rock n roll coveting of thy neighbor's wife. Yep, your best friend's girlfriend. Derivatives, of course, include heartbreaking odes to your gal and your best friend, or desperate poems wishing you could get with your gal's best friend.

    *Let's not forget about doing SOMETHING, don't matter what, as long as it's Til The Day I Die.

    *Babe. There just wouldn't be much rock and roll without this damned word. As in, Babe, I'm gonna leave ya. Or who's that Babe with the fabulous shadow. Or i got you Babe. Babe-a-licious.

    *Fire. As in, let me stand next to yours. Or come on babe, light mine. Or 'on.' Or 'in the hole.' Or whathaveyou. Apparently an essential element in the rock periodic table.

    Damn, Bon Jovi seems to be a repeat offender....he's had just about all of the above and he has the song with a sub-category of that one in the title: "I'd Die For You"

    Bret Michaels is pretty bad about that too. He recycles his own lyrics as well.

    One time I listened to Mark and Brian of KLOS outta L.A., and they had some aging rocker on...I forget who it was, maybe Lou Reed or Bob Geldof or someone...

    anyway, the guy said if you think about it, nearly all of rock and roll is about something along the lines of one of the following, and not much else:

    Death
    Women
    Sex
    Love
    Cars
    War
    The shit that happens when a bunch of us get together.
    The shit that happens when we're all alone.
    Our inability to order our reality the way we'd like it.

    LOL...those last three pretty much cover it.

    I think everyone is, even our own Sammy Hagar! If I had a dollar for every song VH has with the word "love" either in the title or anywhere in the song, I'd be friggin rich!
    So you broke down, trying to leave town, I broke down crying on your return. You left me feeling hopeful, I'll never see your face again. You made for a bad lover's liver. You stole all the covers and busted my head. You made me such an asshole, I wish we'd never met. I'm tired of being bored. I'm through with the headaches.

    "Blinded by the light....."
    "can't get enough of....."
    ".....get(ting) close(r) to you...."
    "...Come home to me/you...."

    That's something different. Everyone has tons of love songs, they just don't use that word in the title as much.

    Think that falls under the 'shit that happens when we're together or alone' categories. LOL.

    any lyric using "desire" in the next line to rhyme with "fire"!!!
    "Look, I'll pay you for it, what the f**k?!"

    "If I don't make her happy in the bedroom the wife gets bitchy for days at a time, but when I come to bed ready for action she laughs and laughs. She even laughs while I make my moves so I know I must be pleasing her as only I can do."

    Good topic...

    "Me and the boys..." has to lead my list of lameo-supremo lyrics...

    Women as fruit..."She's my cherry pie..." "Really love your peaches wanna shake your tree..."

    Any lyric claiming some "hold on your/my heart..." This can also be called the Phil Collins Lyric...
