I'll be what I am, A Solitary Man !



My Comment: I'm hearing this song for the first time & I know that this will be in my Favorites list(http://bit.ly/cTElQV). I really like to hear these kinda song. Songs about Solitude and all are very rare to find these days. Instead you can find 'Get Rich or Die Trying' or 'Best Damn Thing', or 'Die MF', but not something which isn't rubbish and licit. I don't usually like these oldies but this one, I've to admit that I liked it so much. But the one main problem is, the Lyrics are too limited & the overall song is just 2:47m.

Lyrics


Melinda was mine
'Til the time
That I found her
Holding Jim
Loving Him
Then Sue came along
Loved me strong
That's what I thought
Me and Sue
But that died too

Don't know that I will
But until I can find me
The girl who'll stay
And won't play games behind me
I'll be what I am
A solitary man
Solitary man

I've had it to here
Bein' where
Love's a small word
Part-time thing
Paper ring

I know it's been done
Havin' one
Girl who'll love me
Right or wrong
Weak or strong

Don't know that I will
But until I can find me
The girl who'll stay
And won't play games behind me
I'll be what I am
A solitary man
Solitary man

James Maynard Keenan - Original Interview + Spoof

I really liked this interview between the extremely unusual and seemingly eccentric American rock singer Maynard James Keenan from the band 'Tool' & the Emo interviewer. I liked the strange character of Maynard in this video. But guess what, I liked the spoof one way better.
