The best music lyric sites I've found so far. (I don't look very often. wink )

Wish List

One thing I'd like the sites to include is the actual author of each song. (I'm listening to U2's "Rattle and Hum" and I know some of the songs were written by others ("All Along the Watchtower" by Bob Dylan, "Helter Skelter" by the Beatles), but I'd like to know about the others. (I thought "When Love Comes To Town" was by somebody else (like B.B.King), but it turns out it was written by U2 for B.B.King — interesting!)

"Lost" Music

Maybe I should eventually move this to "its" own page._

Oh, I might as well add this here -- I've been looking for a song -- after some digging I think it came from the movie CB4 (I'll have to rent it someday, or go to Border's or similar and listen to the soundtrack). IIHC (If I Hear Correctly), the lyrics include some lines like: "we know who we are" and "the moon shining down on" our head(?). A day or so after I wrote this my son found the movie on TV, and we recorded all but the first 10 minutes or so — if it's in CB4 it must be the opening theme (which we didn't hear). So, my (tentative) conclusion is that it's not from the movie CB4 — if anyone recognizes this song or has any hints about where I might find it, please add a note here (or email me).

Recently came across the movie "Save the Last Dance" which seems like the kind of movie the song I'm looking for might have been in. Nice music in any case (what I heard — didn't see the entire movie). BTW (to help identify it?), it starred Julia Stiles (is she the latest ADA on the original Law and Order — nope, but the two look similar (IMHO)) and Sean Patrick Thomas.

While I'm thinking about "lost music" that I like, I once, while driving through the Harrisburg, Pa. area somewhere between 20 and 30 years ago, heard an electronic music piece (on a PBS radio station) called, to the best of my recollection, "The New World Symphony". I don't know if it was the same or had any relation to Dvoraks (sp?) New World Symphony, it seemed to be something of an experimental piece and so was the show — in other words, I don't think the piece was a commercial recording, but instead the artist seemed to be a guest on the show (so it was clearly not Dvorak wink ) and was playing something he had recorded himself, possibly on tape. If anyone knows more about this or how / where to obtain (or listen) to a copy, please add a note here or email me.
