"Under my thumb"

Postby Annapurna » Wed Aug 18, 2010 6:41 am

A question for the music fans in this forum!

I'm sure you know the song by the Stones: Under my thumb.

I'm looking for other cool songs that deal with power in a relationship...can you think of any?

Ty!

The things I'm asking, huh? :D

From Annie Get Your Gun - "I can do anything better than you can, I can do anything better than you" "No you can't" "Yes I can" "No you can't" "Yes I can" "No you can't, no you can't no you CAAAAAAAN'T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Norwegian Wood - Beatles - The gurl got the skinny on the boy in that one

Another Beatle song - and it's old - and I cannot remember the name - but the refrain is "Catcha with another man, that's the end ... little girl"

"She said" also by the Beatles "She said, I know what's it's like to be dead .." "And she's making me feel like I've never been born" (oo that's a good Buddhist one!)

"I put A Spell On You" Creedance Clearwater Revival - and a shakin' blues song it is

The Masochism Tango - Tom Lehrer - a funny parody scream of a song

"Set me Free Why Don't You Babe" Sung by The Supremes

"I'm Gonna Keep On Loving You" - I think it's Kansas but don't quote me (guy stays with gal even tho she screws around on him)

"Gett Off" Prince - the one and only purple baddass shaft from outer space

Wow, that is quite a selection! I'll love listening to them!

There is also one by Tom Jones, the Tiger, who shot his lady....what was the name of it again?

Oh! Delilah, right? :smile:

Anna there's another great one by Jimi Hendrix - and I'm so crappy with song titles but one of the lines is: "You know I'm goin' downtown to shoot my old lady, I caught her messin' round the other day" "I gave her the gun, I shot her!" Typical hard rock blues Hendrix. Hopefully someone here will know the damn title!

Ah! I remember! "Hey Joe" is the title! Woo hoo!

V.

NB - you know the German is spelt soo differently from the Yiddish that I had to translate what you wrote - only to find it was almost exactly what I said ! :anjali:
