DRAGONMOUNT

A WHEEL OF TIME COMMUNITY

Funny thing happened at work today

We had a classic rock station playing on the radio. An old song came on called Wheel in the Sky.  It goes like "wheel in the sky keeps on turning..."

 

I was singing along kind of to my self when I suddenly realized what I was saying..."Wheel of Time keeps on turning..."

 

I then Laughed Out Loud. :D

 

That's all, you may now return to your regularly scheduled forum browsing.

 

;D

I find myself doing the same thing when that song comes on the air. It is a fitting song for the series too,:D.

 

BTW here are the lyrics for those who arn't familar with the song:

 

Winter is here again oh Lord,

Haven't been home in a year or more

I hope she holds on a little longer

Sent a letter on a long summer day

Made of silver, not of clay

Ooh, I've been runnin' down this dusty road

 

Ooh, the wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'

I don't know where I'll be tomorrow

Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'

 

I've been trying to make it home

Got to make it before too long

Ooh, I can't take this very much longer, no

I'm stranded in the sleet and rain

Don't think I'm ever gonna make it home again

The mornin' sun is risin'

It's kissing the day

 

Ooh, the wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'

I don't know where I'll be tomorrow

Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'

Whooa... My, my, my, my, my... For tomorrow

 

Oh, the wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'

Ooh, I don't know where I'll be tomorrow

Wheel in the sky keeps me yernin'

Oh, I don't know, I don't know

 

Oh, the wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'

Ooh, I don't know where I'll be tomorrow

Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'

Ooh, I don't know, I don't know, I don't knowohoh

Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'

Don't know where I'll be tomorrow

Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'

Ohh, the wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'

Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin'

Did you know that there is a song called "Wheel of Time", inspired by WoT by a German power metal band called Blind Guardian in their next album? (they're also doing a cover of John Farnham's "You're the Voice" in it too)...

They have previously released an album inspired by LotR that's really good.

I love this kind of thing, I absolutely MUST post the lyrics of Pretender by Foo Fighters.

 

Keep you in the dark

You know they all pretend

Keep you in the dark

And so it all began

 

Send in your skeletons

Sing as their bones come marching in...again

They need you buried deep

The secrets that you keep are at the ready

Are you ready?

I'm finished making sense

Done pleading ignorance

That whole...defense

 

Spinning infinity, boy

The wheel is spinning me

It's never-ending, never-ending

Same old story

 

What if I say I'm not like the others?

What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays

You're the pretender

What if I say I will never surrender?

 

What if I say I'm not like the others?

What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays

You're the pretender

What if I say that I'll never surrender?

 

In time our soul untold

I'm just another soul for sale... oh, well

The page is out of print

We are not permanent

We're temporary, temporary

Same old story

 

What if I say I'm not like the others?

What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays

You're the pretender

What if I say that I'll never surrender?

 

What if I say I'm not like the others?

What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays

You're the pretender

What if I say I will never surrender?

 

I'm the voice inside your head

You refuse to hear

I'm the face that you have to face

Mirrored in your stare

I'm what's left, I'm what's right

I'm the enemy

I'm the hand that will take you down

Bring you to your knees

 

So who are you?

Yeah, who are you?

Yeah, who are you?

Yeah, who are you?

 

Keep you in the dark

You know they all pretend

 

What if I say I'm not like the others?

What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays

You're the pretender

What if I say that I'll never surrender?

Really? Now that saves my day :-) A song about WoT by Blind Guardian. That's just great news. I loved the LotR album. 'Nightfall in Middleearth' it is called I think.

Do you know when it is due?

Some sources are saying the album will be out in September others say the end of Northern Hemisphere winter according to my brother... there is a demo for the new album on their website that includes a sneak peak at the WoT song.

I'm really excited about this album - WoT song and John Farnham cover - *squeees*

I don't have to post the lyrics to Howl by Florence and the Machine, but I will anyway. Not because they're relevant, just because. And it makes a change from having the same bloody Foo Fighters song quoted.

 

If you could only see the beast you've made of me

I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free

Screaming in the dark, I howl when we're apart

Drag my teeth across your chest to taste your beating heart

 

My fingers claw your skin, try to tear my way in

You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to howl

My fingers claw your skin, try to tear my way in

You are the moon that breaks the night for which I have to

 

Howl, howl

Howl, howl

 

Now there's no holding back, I'm making to attack

My blood is singing with your voice, I want to pour it out

The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound

I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallow'ed ground

 

Like some child possessed, the beast howls in my veins

I want to find you, tear out all of your tenderness

 

And howl, howl

Howl, howl

 

Be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers

Starts so soft and sweet and turns them to hunters

Hunters, hunters, hunters

Hunters, hunters, hunters

 

The fabric of your flesh, pure as a wedding dress

Until I wrap myself inside your arms I cannot rest

The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound

I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallow'ed ground

 

And howl

 

Be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers

Starts so soft and sweet and turns them to hunters

 

A man who's pure of heart and says his prayers by night

May still become a wolf when the autumn moon is bright

 

If you could only see the beast you've made of me

I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free

The saints can't help me now, the ropes have been unbound

I hunt for you with bloodied feet across the hallow'ed ground
