Fascinating songs

What songs have left you dazed for awhile afterwards and maybe even doubting stuff the most? I can't stop listening to Hotel California but it's doing me subtle harm ūüėā

 I agree about Hotel California. A very profound and esoteric song, although I'm very interested in your opinion of it. You seem to be very thoughtful and intelligent seemingly beyond your years. What is it for you about this song that makes you "doubt stuff"?

Well when I was listening to Runaway Train the video made me feel really negative about stuff for awhile and I think that's what that song made feel like sorta.

There are many songs I find fascinating for different reasons. These two 80's classics were fascinating to me mainly because I had no idea what they were about. It must be a Genesis thing.

To me fascinating means confusing lyrics, or it just tugs on you, or changes the way you feel about something or makes your heart leap. The Violet Burning's 'The Killing' does that for me quite a bit. :wub: The Violet Burning in general does it :P

Killer Dwarfs - All That We Dream, off the Dirty Weapons disc, to this day I cannot figure out what he's singing about, also Brother Cane, And Fools Shine On, describing an Athiests view on life and religion, disturbed me at first, but what a fucking killer song

I hadn't heard that Brother Kane track before and you're right, it's killer. Although,  it doesn't seem Atheist. A bit of a Gnostic theme perhaps? I dunno. A very thought provoking track. Perfect for this thread.

Perhaps, it's definitely a well written and thought provoking track, I just once read while searching for the meaning it was an atheists view on religion, and being a believer then losing belief

That only creates question, with me I'd rather u just say what u gotta say, absolutely no point in not speaking your mind, plus i might be interested in what u have to say

True, but Noo when I speak my mind people go all off the handle and it just isn't worth it- besides, people have been really good lately at just ignoring my comments that will not go well if answered, and everyone's an atheist on here anyway so I really don't want to deal with them, you see, I've always been an arguer and in the long run no one is really interested in what I have to say.

Or, I guess, that's not very how I should act- I guess what I was going to say was that believer doesn't sound like they're really doing their job in showing that atheist the way it is, but then, I guess we're all hypocrites :rolleyes:

But I just don't like when everone jumps on you that's all, its not that I'm a coward in showing what I believe, Ha!  

Also Into Jesus is a song that I would call fascinating

Close My Eyes Forever by Lita and Ozzy.I really like the song but I'm not certain what it means...or if it means anything.

My mom and her best friend Lori would sing that together in the 80s, and she would be Ozzy. Dunno anything about the actual song though :P

Not true. Not everyone here is an Atheist. I'm certainly not.

Well most of them were at least, I know not all but a lot were. That's good you aren't though :)

To my knowledge I was the only Atheist on here, if there are any others I am not aware, and I love it when people try to challenge me on it, the last thing I get is mad or worked up, because it's not that important to me that anyone else be Atheist, it's just something ive always believed, or not believed, it's an unwinnable argument, but for some people they just can't handle that, and by the way Petra girl, have u listened to the song at hand? Brother Kane And Fools Shine On, regardless what it's about, its a good fucking song, and it's not at all in your face with it's message, it's almost telling the story of someone who did believe, then for what ever reason(I assume it was their drug addiction since it states that) he sees things in a whole new light, did I mention it's an awesome song?

I've never thought to label my thoughts on the whole thing. If I think every religion is ridiculous and very stupid, and that it's a complete waste of a life to subscribe to any religion whatsoever, does that make me an atheist? If so, I guess I'm one? I guess. 

This thread is way too hard to think about off the top of my head, but 'Quicksand Jesus' and also 'In A Darkened Room' by Skid Row are two good shouts.

No I didn't listen to the song, yes you mentioned it was a good one, and since I did not listen to it I guess then what I said wasn't too important. And no, because in one thread a couple weeks back there was some guys and they were saying all these silly things they thought I believed like the earth being flat and saying Christians were all mean and all types things and then some guy says "now I'm extra glad I'm an atheist" or something, and it wasn't you.

    • From Escape Music: KEYS has just completed their second album, ‚ÄúThe Grand Seduction‚ÄĚ. ¬† This all-keyboard band is the brainchild of singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amaranthe and others) and keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) with Emanuel Bagge (Sweden‚Äôs Got Talent Finalist) on additional vocals and keys, Irwan Fabrien (noted keyboard guitar sound designer) with help of drum gurus Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra and others). ¬† Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems ‚Ķand Jake‚Äôs award-winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).¬† ¬†Previous KEYS album also featured guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel and others. ¬† Though songs are first and foremost, this band shows the versatility of keyboards in this day and age.¬† These artfully crafted songs are ripe with scathing synth, organ and ‚Äúguitar‚ÄĚ pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and ‚Äúguitar‚ÄĚ riffs (played on keyboards with the now available plug in‚Äôs that perfectly emulate guitars).¬† As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and hard to pigeon hole sound (isn‚Äôt that the whole point?) of this band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range. ¬† Release Date: 19th July 2024 CD Catalogue No: ESM389 ¬† CD Track List: 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 9:02 2. ALL I NEED¬† 6:49 3. SHINING SAILS¬† 5:51 4. SWITCHBLADE¬† 6:02 5. VORTEX¬† ¬†4:06 6. SKIN AND BONES¬† 6:42 7. TURN TO DUST¬† ¬† 4:42 8. CRAZY TOWN¬† ¬†7:43 9. THOUGHT WE HAD FOREVER¬† 6:04 10. THE WORLD IS OURS (Curse the Lies)¬† ¬†4:02 ¬† Vinyl Track List: Side A 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 6:47 2. ALL I NEED 6:49 3. SHINING SAILS 5:51 4. VORTEX 4:06 ¬† Side B 1. SWITCHBLADE 6:02 2. SKIN AND BONES 6:42 3. TURN TO DUST 4:42 4. CRAZY TOWN 7:43 ¬† PRODUCED BY MARK MANGOLD AND JAKE E MIXED BY MARK MANGOLD MASTERED BY MAOR APPELBAUM ¬†

    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff! ¬† ¬†
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think. ¬†
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too‚Ķ From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world‚̧ԳŹ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj‚Äôs legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards¬† Nate Peck ¬† And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
