I was wondering when are you going to have mp3's for all of the songs

someone PLEEEEEASE post an mp3 of uh-merica, I saw her play that song when she was the last-minute replacement opening act for The Dismemberment Plan at Irving Plaza in New York almost 2 years ago.

That song is the reason I got into her music. I've been looking for a recording for a long time.

what a fantastic site! I love people who take the time to put up lyrics.
I have a suggestions actually - I think that in Samson the lines
"I cut his hair myself one night/Buried those scissors in the yellow light"
might actually be "...a pair of doll's scissors in the yellow light"...
just a thought!

Thought you might want to know - the "lots of not English words" in 8th floor are Russian. Maybe I'll get around to transcribing them at some point, though not sure who I'd email it to...?

Your blog is very cool! I just thought I'd run past you something I always thought on "Blue Lips" as far as the lyrics go. I could clearly be wrong, but I always thought she was saying "Is this all there is?" and then the second time "This is all there is". Just me maybe, but I thought I'd pass it along.

The latin bit at the end of Lacrimosa goes:
Lacrimosa dies illa
Qua resurget ex favilla
Judicandus homo reus
Huic ergo parce Deus

which translates to:
Oh this day full of tears
When from the ashes arises
Guilty man, to be judges,
Oh Lord, have mercy upon him.

Nice site btw, some hot live mp3 action is always appreciated

Russian on apres moi:
февраль достать чернил и плакать
писать о феврале навзрыд
пока грохочущая слякоть
весною чёрною горит

it's the first stanza of pasternak's "february" poem repeated twice

Russian pronounciation (Django from
Fevral'. Dostat' chernil i plakat'!
Pisat' o fevrale navzryd,
Poka grohochuschaya slyakot'
Vesnoyu chernoyu gorit.

sorry if someone already said this, but I'm too lazy to read all the other posts...

for the lyrics for "Long Brown Hair," I think that one line is:

"Her body was free/Wanna bet so's her love"

I had this epiphany when listening to it last night on my headphones, where I can hear lyrics seems to fit with the rest of the song...anyone agree or disagree?

i saw a commercial for "A Diamond is Forever" & i am quite sure it is regina...but i dont know what the name of the song is...can anyone help

Lacrimosa: the latin lyrics are this:

Lacrimosa dies illa
Qua resurget ex favilla
Iudicandus homo reus.
Huic ergo parce, Deus,
Pie (Jesu Domine,
Dona eis requiem.)
(she doesn't sing the last lines between brackets, but that would be the continuation of it.. These lines were either taken from the very famous "Dies Irae", a Christian song from somewhere in the middle-ages, or from the original Lacrimosa (was it mozart?). The lyrics from both pieces are the same (the Lacrimosa 'borrowed' its words from "Dies Irae") and translations can be found on wikipedia.)

I think the "??" word in Dusseldorf is "martyrdom".

I think I love you. I was so afraid I'd never find these wonderful songs. The site is fantastic. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

I think, like Thomas Edison, so I invented "Melodifluous."

By deduction from Merriam-Webster it means:

"a sweet or agreeable succession having a smooth rich flow."


Please visit my site sometime,, its a work in progress but I would like to hear from people like yourself.
