    Okay.   We’ve had tear eyes songs and life songs, so how about some that tell us a story, no matter how long or short.  It doesn’t even have to prove a point or have a moral, just an interesting story, and you can list more than one.

    Puff the Magic Dragon has already been mentioned in one of the other threads, and was one of my favorites from a long time ago (not trying to make any one feel old).  So, here is some of mine:

    Mr. Tanner, Dreams Go By, 30,000 Pounds Of Bananas, Taxi & Sequel… Harry Chapin on “Greatest Stories Live” (youtube has them)

    Lady In Black, Wizard… Uriah Heep

    Barricades Of Heaven … Jackson Brown

    The Old City Bar … Trans Siberian Orchestra

    Ghost Riders In The Sky… The Outlaws

    Wreck On The Highway… Bruce Springsteen

    Okay, that’s just a few, your turn.

      Each one a story, but makes an epic story of a failed relationship when you listen to these REO Speedwagon songs in this order:

      Did I miss it? Or did no one mention Lou Reed, Walk On the Wild Side.

      Holly came from Miami, F.L.A.
      Hitch-hiked her way across the U.S.A.
      Plucked her eyebrows on the way
      Shaved her legs and then he was a she
      She says, “Hey, babe
      Take a walk on the wild side”
      Said, “Hey, honey
      Take a walk on the wild side”

      Clara on the wild side

      Tangled Up in Blue- Bob Dylan

      She was working in a topless place when I stopped in for a beer.

      I just kept lookin’ at the side of her face in the spotlight so clear.

      And later on when the crowd thinned out
      I’s just about to do the same
      She was standing there at the back of my chair
      Sayin’ “Tell me, don’t I know your name?”
      I muttered something underneath my breath
      She studied the lines on my face
      I must admit I felt a little uneasy
      When she bent down to tie the laces of my shoe
      Tangled up in blue”

      Wow, so, so many good tunes to know and listen to.  A bunch of them I have in my library, but so many others that need to be there too.

      Let’s not forget the first hard rock n roll story I memorized in my youth… Smoke On The Water by Deep Purple.

      Hi Paula,

      A few of my favourites
      :
      The singer Sandy Denny joined, then encouraged a band called Fairport Convention to reimagine old english ballads, and trailblaze (uk) folk rock.

      “Liege and Lief” has a few good examples e.g. “Matty Groves” and “Tam Lin”

      And from Bob Dylan, “Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts”

      Put another log on the fire… it kinda tells my story of switching between male and female.

      At times I want to purge. Or have no inclination to dress. (Why have you left me I cry. )

      Other times I’m doing it all. Washing, cooking, cleaning, looking after myself while the drab slob disappears…

      I haven’t seen this one mentioned yet: “The Highwayman” by Loreena McKennitt.

      This has long been one of my favorite “teary-eyed” songs. It’s an old English romantic ballad set to music by McKennitt. Always has me reaching for the tissue box by the end of the song.

      Here’s a link to it on youtube:

      The dialect is a bit hard to follow for this Southern Belle, so here’s the lyrics if you care to follow along:

        Loreena has sooo many songs like that.  Dickens Dublin is a very beautiful story song, as is The Lady Of Shallot.

          Yep, Lady of Shallot, another good one. I have three of Loreena’s CDs, this one and “The Visit” and “The Mask and the Mirror”. But this song, “The Highwayman” has long been my fav.

      Tom MacDonald – Church

      Having worked in a hospital for 32 yrs and with the stress of the past 15 months I crawled into the bottle. I had to retire for my own health. This song is about Tom’s struggle with sobriety. It’s like he’s talking to me directly. Yikes. Never has a song hit me so hard.

      Be safe. Love and Peace.

      I haven’t surely heard most of the artists mentioned in this conversation, and will try them out.

      Here’s a few which i like and there’s a story being told. Although, the kind of music may not appeal to everyone.

      Nekrogoblikon – No one survives [frustrations of the wrongful treatment meted out resulting in disastrous ending 😉]

      Cannibal Corpse – Inhuman Harvest[ Illegal organ trade]

      Iron Maiden – Rime of the Ancient Mariner [how foolish actions can lead to a sad end]

      Guns’N’Roses – November Rain[grieving the death of a girlfriend, who has committed suicide]

      Blur – Coffee & TV [just being tired of life, maybe]

      Cradle of Filth – Nymphetamine [ any CoF song has an awesome story. This one is about a drug-like addiction to women]

        Good to see Cradle of Filth get a mention – I have been a fan for a long time – ever since I first heard “Her Ghost in the Fog”, maybe 20 years ago?

        My favourite of theirs is “Enshrined in Crematoria”, which carries many parallels to the way I feel when I’m unable to dress for a while. It’s one of their most accessible songs, and really grows with repeated hearings:

         

        https://youtu.be/BSMWrqZmZK8

        I saw pretty much all the big metal bands in their prime, back in the early 1980s – Maiden doing “Number of the Beast” for the first time was quite something, Motorhead releasing “Ace of Spades” on the back of “Back in Black” from AC/DC… we were spoilt back then, and didn’t know it! Hearing Master of Puppets on the day of release, and seeing them perform it with Cliff was precious…

        Good times!

        Am definitely keeping the rock chick vibe under the sensible middle aged lady veneer – so glad biker jackets are en vogue!

        Love Laura

        Love Iron Maiden, they’ve taken on quite a few literature reference as the basis of their song. Rime of the Ancient Mariner is quite an epic

          Erika, great to know you have a similar taste in music. Iron maiden is a classic story teller. Apart from the mariner, the ‘number of the beast’ is an awesome song – gives me chills everytime. Like the Cradle of Filth adaptation as well.

          What are more of your favorites?

            Ooo lesse… if we’re still talking about storytelling and Maiden, I like their longer epic like Alexander The Great and Seventh Son Of A Seventh Son. Of course I like the classic like The Trooper, Number of the Beast,  and Hallowed Be Thy Name too! Favourite album would be between Powerslave and Piece of Mind, a lot of great songs on those.
            Used to listen to Blur, but haven’t really done so in a long time haha. I like Song 2. Whoo hoo!
            I don’t really think of storytelling when I listen to the more extreme part of heavy metal like death metal lol, since I first see them as br00tal, before going to their lyrics. I just listened to Cannibal Corpse’s latest album (I haven’t checked their earlier work because I thought they were shallow bands that want to shock people), and I like what I hear! Will have to listen to their other albums later.
            Right now I’m looking forward to new release by Gojira this Friday. Now that’s a death metal with some thoughtful themes… can’t wait!
            I don’t wanna bore you with the other heavy metal bands that I like since they might be more in the not-so-mainstream ones lol. But I do love me some heavy metal \m/

      Another one that is topical to the site is ‘Bitty Boppy Betty’ by Pink Martini – from the album ‘Splendour in the Grass’

      I’m not going to divulge the story but you will have to listen to it and enjoy !

          I don’t know all the songs. The ones I do know are all very nice. A song that would be my personal crossdressing song. Meat Loaf. Bat out of Hell.
