Subject: maybe on plane
From: jackbell
Date: 08 Apr 02 - 04:23 PM

Hi all-

I just got some help with some lyrics, but the song and the artist were not included.

These are the lyrics:

On a plane
All the way to Spain
I kept a needle in my vein
To take away the pain
Of writing songs so inane.
Thanks for any help!
Jack

I am searching for a lost song, and I stop by with you guys every couple of months. I don't have a lot, but here goes.

The song is by a female singer song writer type, only a guitar.

The song was released before 1996.

The lyrics that I remember are:

Maybe on a plane... Or to Spain...

Help me, I've searched for this for years.

From: Charlie Baum
Date: 03 Jun 02 - 05:54 PM

Elton John's DANIEL? (See penultimate verse).

Daniel is traveling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tailed eyes heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

They say Spain is pretty though I've never been
Well Daniel says it's the best place that he's ever seen
Oh and he should know, he's been there enough
Lord I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much

Daniel my brother you are older than me
Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal
Your eyes have died but you see more than I
Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky

Daniel is traveling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tailed eyes heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

Oh God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

Unfortunately, every time you ask about this song you seem to use a different thread title and a different name for yourself, so it's virtually impossible to locate your previous threads on this subject. I recall at least the last one, which attracted a number of replies; given that you don't seem to have made a note of it for yourself, I can only assume that you never saw them. Please make a note of this one so that you can find it again when you next drop in. We try very hard to help people, but you really are making it unneccessarily difficult for us. After a while it becomes rather depressing trying to help people who do not seem prepared to make even a small effort to help themselves.

From: Bugsy

It could either be "Daniel" by Elton John, or "The Grande Affair" by Ralph McTell". I remember the words from "Affair" as "Take a bus, Maybe a plane, Go anywhere except Greece or Spain". Sorry but I can't remember, or find the rest of the words, but Daniel is as follows.

DANIEL Elton John (Elton John/Bernie Taupin)

Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tailed eyes heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

They say Spain is pretty though I've never been
Well Daniel says it's the best place that he's ever seen
Oh and he should know, he's been there enough
Lord I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much

Daniel my brother you are older than me
Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal
Your eyes have died but you see more than I
Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky

Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tailed eyes heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes
Oh God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

Hope this helps

Subject: Lyr Add: THE GRANDE AFFAIRE (Ralph McTell)
From: Bugsy
Date: 03 Jun 02 - 09:10 PM

FOUND IT!

THE GRANDE AFFAIRE
(Ralph McTell)

Take a boat, who needs a car
We leave here, take this seat near the door.
Well I'm not hungry much now, are you?
Is it ok if I share yours with you?
I have no money and I think I believe that you knew.

Remember the moon on the wall, did she shine?
Taste of the sheets and the feel of the wine.
Wasn't I glad that you was mine.
In the Grande Affaire.

Take a boat, maybe a plane,
Anywhere now, 'cept Greece or Spain.
Oh sure, I know where I am,
I see canals, this is Amsterdam.
I got friends here and they know, and they can say who I am.

Remember the room without any view.
Frightened of meeting someone that we knew
No farewells or how-do-you-do's.
In the Grande Affaire.

Now I've stayed at the best hotels,
And there's white coated waiters attend me,
And I look at the beautiful girls,
Do they really believe they can bend me.

Well I drive now, seldom, I walk.
I can speak French, but I'd rather not talk.
Which suit will I wear tonight?
Take out the brown, but in the end wear the white.
Out the shade, stepping out, and moving into the light.

Remember the moon on the wall did she shine,
The year was all wrong so we sent back the wine,
Wasn't you glad that you was mine.
In the Grande Affaire.

Cheers

Bugsy

Guest, have you any record of your previous requests here? It would be useful to know what searches have been done previously, to save duplicating effort.

I can't find your previous requests, with the limited amount of information you've given us. Very frustrating, as we like to help!

Maybe Bugsy has it with Grand Affaire.

How about the lovely Jane Siberry song, "In the Blue Light?" You can find all the lyrics at www.sheeba.ca, Jane's website, using the search function and putting Lyrics "In the Blue Light" in the search box. Here is the first verse:
I was on a train
Somewhere in Spain
Sometime in the night
I drew up my knees
In second class
And watched in the blue light.

From her eponymous album. Margaret

(Thread drift: Well... even if it's not the right song, it IS a lovely one. This was her first album, 1981, and it's a real beauty. I only heard it long after I knew her other more recent stuff, and I remember being impressed by how great her songwriting was so early on. Then just a few years ago she went and recorded an album of songs she wrote when she was a teenager, called, simply, "Teenager." Some of the songs on that CD bowled me over, too, and I began to wonder what she was scribbling when she was first handed crayons in diapers... I am so grateful for her beautiful genius.) Margaret, never one to miss a chance to plug Jane Siberry

Subject: Lyr Add: CALIFORNIA (Joni Mitchell)
From: lamarca
Date: 04 Jun 02 - 06:33 PM

It's long shot, but Joni Mitchell's "California" mentions catching a plane to Spain, she's a female singer-songwriter with solo guitar, and the song was on her 1971 album Blue

CALIFORNIA

Sitting in a park in Paris, France
Reading the news and it sure looks bad
They won't give peace a chance
That was just a dream some of us had
Still a lot of lands to see
But I wouldn't want to stay here
It's too old and cold and settled in its ways here

Oh, but California
California I'm coming home
I'm going to see the folks I dig
I'll even kiss a Sunset pig
California I'm coming home

I met a redneck on a Grecian isle
Who did the goat dance very well
He gave me back my smile
But he kept my camera to sell
Oh the rogue, the red red rogue
He cooked good omelettes and stews
And I might have stayed on with him there
But my heart cried out for you, California

Oh California I'm coming home
Oh make me feel good rock'n roll band
I'm your biggest fan
California, I'm coming home

CHORUS:
Oh it gets so lonely
When you're walking
And the streets are full of strangers
All the news of home you read
Just gives you the blues
Just gives you the blues

So I bought me a ticket
I caught a plane to Spain
Went to a party down a red dirt road
There were lots of pretty people there
Reading Rolling Stone, reading Vogue
They said, "How long can you hang around?"
I said a week, maybe two,
Just until my skin turns brown
Then I'm going home to

California,
California I'm coming home
Oh will you take me as I am
Strung out on another man
California I'm coming home

CHORUS:
Oh it gets so lonely
When you're walking
And the streets are full of strangers
All the news of home you read
More about the war
And the bloody changes
Oh will you take me as l am?
Will you take me as l am?
Will you?

Subject: Lyr Add: THE BLUES RUNS THE GAME (Jackson C Frank)
From: Bugsy
Date: 05 Jun 02 - 09:34 PM

But then again it could be this one....

THE BLUES RUNS THE GAME

Take a boat to England baby, maybe to Spain
Where ever I have been, Where ever I've been and gone
Where ever I have gone the blues, they run the game

Send out for whiskey baby, send out for gin
Me and room service honey, me and room service child
Me and room service well we're living a life of sin

When I ain't sleeping baby, you're on my mind
When I ain't drinking honey, when I ain't drinking child
When I ain't drinking well you're sure to find me crying

Try another city baby, try another town
Where ever I have played, Where ever I've rolled them dice
Where ever I have played the blues come tumbling' down

Ah living is a gamble honey, loving's much the same
Where ever I have been, where ever I've been and gone
Where ever I have gone, the blues remain the same

Maybe tomorrow baby, somewhere down the line
I'll wake up older baby, I'll wake up old and dying
I'll wake up older and I'll just quit all my trying

So take a boat to England baby, maybe to Spain
Where ever I have been, Where ever I've been and gone
Where ever I have gone the blues, they run the game

Cheers

From: technission
Date: 06 Jun 02 - 11:03 PM

I doubt this is it, but I haven't posted for a long while and I love to see myself talk, so here's verse one of

NEW MEXICO RAIN

The smoke cuts the lights in this honky-tonk bar
And I'm thinkin' where I'd rather be
Maybe chasin' senoritas in old Mexico
Or standin' at the edge of the sea
If I had the money, I'll tell you, honey
We'd be on the first plane to Spain
But as long as we're here, the answer is clear
We'll dance in the New Mexico rain

writing credit: Mike Hearne, copyright 1981
I have it on the CD "Diamonds In The Rough" by Bill & Bonnie Hearne, 1997 Warner Brothers
It's a nice song and being written that long ago perhaps it has been recorded by solo female vocalists? Bonnie's harmony is nice on this version. The entire album's nice, with harmonizing appearances by (in order of appearance) Tish Hinojosa, Jerry Jeff Walker, Nanci Griffith, Lyle Lovett, Christine Albert, & Mike Hearne.
If you don't have this one, you should. Usual disclaimers. cheers, Michael

Words by Kimbar P. Sluge, music by Johann Sabastian Bach

The doctor said I was insain,
I remember it well, I was in Spain,
or maybe on a plane,
it gave me quite a pain
to contemplate my poor brain,
which was tumbling down the drain,
NO! I met him on a train,
in the Ukraine,
I thought I was a crane,
he told be to refrain,
one foot standing in the rain,
while puffing on a tobacco chain,
prodding passerbys with my cane,

Two Little Girls
(Ani Difranco)

you were fresh off the boat from virginia
i had a year in new york city under my belt
we met in a dream
we were both 19
i remember where we were standing
i remember how it felt
2 little girls growing out of their training bras
this little girl breaks furniture, this little girl breaks laws
2 girls together
just a little less alone
this little girl cries wee wee
all the way home

you were always half crazy, now look at you baby
make about as much sense as a nursery rhyme
love is a piano dropped out a four story window
and you were in the wrong place at the wrong time

i don't like your girlfriend, yeah i don't like her
never seen one of your lovers do you so much harm
i loved you first and you know i would prefer
if she didn't empty her syringes into your arm

here comes little naked me padding up to the bathroom door
to find little naked you slumped on the bathroom floor
so i guess i'll just stand here with my back against the wall
while you distilled your whole life down to a 911 call
[chorus]

so now you bring me your bruises
so i can oh and ah at the display
maybe i'm supposed to make one of my famous jokes that makes everything ok
maybe i'm supposed to be the handsome prince who rides up and unties your hands
or maybe i'm supposed to be the furrow-browed friend who thinks she understands

here comes little naked me......[etc]
