Guess the Heavymetal/Rock song!!

Post#51 » Thu Jan 01, 1970 12:00 am

ProgHead777, I do believe that is Stratovarius
And the name of the song is The Kiss Of Judas .
Is that correct?


That's the one :orcthumbs:

Its a famouse song and I hope we are thinking of the same song here.


Really? For the most part, here in the US, when people think of metal they think of thrash (metallica, megadeth, etc.) or so-called nu-metal or aggro (System of a Down, Linkin Park, Disturbed, etc.). If I said "Stratovarius" to just about anyone I know, they'd think I was chatting about the weather. :funnylaugh:

Really? We are a dubious one aren't we Prog? I saw them live at Donington in '91 while I was waiting for 'tallica and AC/DC, I d@mn near fell asleep.


Well, by '91, Queensryche were becoming a tad dull. After Silent Lucidity, they turned a tad Hair Metal. But Operation: Mindcrime ranks easily in my personal Top 5 Concept Albums Ever list. Have you listened to it in it's entirety? I'd have thought you'd dig the story, if not necessarily the music. If you haven't, you should check it out... you'd probably be quite surprised.

Does Stratovarius sing a song that goes something like:

There's no one else to turn the wheel
I've got my own life to steer

No turning back
Cuz I wanna know who I am and I want to live my life
No turning back
Tomorrow's awaiting, I'm on the way.

I think my dad has their new album... but I'm not sure.
Reach high, for the stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream preceeds that goal.

:moderator: Could any of you who are copying entire songs into this, or any other thread for that matter, ensure that you clearly credit the writer of the song at the bottom please. To not do so is a serious breach of copywrite.

If you have already posted such a song anywhere on this site without crediting the writer, could you please go back to that post and edit it as soon as possible. In the next few weeks I shall be removing any uncredited songs that I come across.

Breach of copywrite is an unlawful offence, in which Planet Tolkien can be held responsible. Unless you wish to aid us in busting Taz from jail, can you take care when posting song/poem material.

Even by crediting the writer, it is still a copywrite offence. The preferred option is to only copy part of the song/poem and to credit the writer at the bottom.

Thank you.

As far as the d-word is concerned, it varies in profaneness (is that a word??) depending on context... and where you're from, I guess. What is extremely offensive in one place might be merely impolite in another... and purely innocent in still another. Here in the US, it's nothing to hear this word on television... even on family shows. But it's still considered to be a strong word and not appropriate in polite conversation. Did I answer your question?


Yes you did, thak you.

If I said "Stratovarius" to just about anyone I know, they'd think I was chatting about the weather.


By the way, what is the meaning of Stratovarius?

Does Stratovarius sing a song that goes something like


Yes they do, that song is called No Turning Back.

I think my dad has their new album... but I'm not sure.


I don't think he does if the album has that song on it. That song was first releazed in the single "SOS" from the album "Destiny" in the year 1998, before the album was releazed that same year. The last album I have knowledge they releazed is "Elements Part I" this year and there is no song called "No Turning Back" on that album. SO maybe yor dad has the "Destiny" album.

I'm posting a song if anyone minds, but I have a problem with what Val just said. How are you going to guess the song if Val says I have to put the name of the group? Any way here it is:

A lifetime ago, with frozen eyes they closed the door.
Suddenly I realized what locks are for. No trusting them anymore, lights -
are - out.

Empty the stare, innocent and unaware, dragged out from my home ,my lair.
Earmarked me, hurt me, burned me.

The walls around me, eyes surround me, feed my fear again.
I must be freed or I will die before the harvest moon, my friend.
I do not have another year in me, you've gotta set me free.

The dream is alive, I can run up the hills every night,
go around and see another side of the tree.
Freedom has a meaning for me, howl with me.

Fear in the dark, I advice you. You can not see the eyes, they grow behind
you....
It's my song they now sing to you.
You stand no chance....

They'll kill for me, steal back my freedom, set me free, it's my minions vs.
thee.
Fiery the vengeance, hate will drain me.

The walls around me, eyes surround me, feed my fear again.
I must be freed or I will die before the harvest moon, my friend.
I do not have another year in me, you've gotta set me free.

The dream is alive, I can run up the hills every night,
go around and see another side of the tree.
All I want is to be untamed and free, howl and (dream).

The dream is alive, with the moon on the hills every night,
run around and see another side of the dream.
Freedom has a meaning for me, you can't tame me...

You will remember the day you crossed my path.
leave me without a guard and you feel my wrath.
What you have done to me has made me bitter and cruel.
I'll see that all the hate you spread returns to you, you, to you...

The walls around me, eyes surround me, feed my fear again.
I must be freed or I will die before the harvest moon, my friend.
I do not have another year in me, you've gotta set me free.
On through the night he rides, on his raging
horse made of steel
Nothing can save you now, before the renegade
you will kneel

Did you mean profanity?

By the way, what is the meaning of Stratovarius?


I've never heard of the band, but it sounds like a play on words to me, as in Strat (short for Fender Stratocaster, possibly the finest musical instrument ever designed by man) combined with Stradivarius (unarguably the finest violin maker in history) thus combining modern and classic craftsmanship. Of course, it's just a guess, I could be wrong.

I have a problem with what Val just said. How are you going to guess the song if Val says I have to put the name of the group?


I think most of what Val meant (which he's been posting everywhere, to make sure you are all aware of the ramifications) can be changed here, do not post the entire lyrics to a song (makes it too easy to guess sometimes anyway) and if nobody guesses it, be sure to tell us yourself (which everyone here does anyway) but most importantly, do not quote the songs in their entirety. Just to clarify things a bit. Thanks for paying attention (Oi, you, Diggle, sit up and pay attention when i'm talking to you ;) )

That would do it, I think, Plastic. We had to edit down a lot of the Tolkien poetry we had on site to avoid breaching copywrite laws. Posting entire songs could get us into trouble. Just posting part of a song is preferable.

As I was goin´ over the Cork and Kerry mountains
I saw Captain Farrell, his money he was countin´
I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier
I said stand and deliver or the devil he may take ya

I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny
I took all of his money and I brought it home to Molly
She swore that she´d love me, no never would she leave me
But the devil take that woman for you know she tricked me easy


What song is this?? And can thou guess which artist I am aiming for?
Life's a piece of sheit, when you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true
You'll see its all a show, people laughin as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you

That was Whisky in the Jar by Thin Lizzy

A dozen highborn youths have been killed
Cutting their throats their blood was all spilled
Their bodies set at the foot of your fire
With oxen, sheep and two of your hounds
