FANS OF THE CONCHORDS

MESSAGE BOARD

My lyrics are bottomless - geeking out over lyrics

Banter about the rhythm of the movement of the feel of the melody of the rhythm of the feeling of Bret and Jemaine's music. Here you will find the largest known collection of Conchords lyrics and chords.

How would you say that your material has evolved with time?
[image] We try to put more jokes in these days. We go through phases where we want everything to be funny, we want everything to be musical, or we want to tell a story.

[image] Some of the first stuff didn't have enough jokes in them to play now.

[image] If we play in a theater we could do those songs. We usually write an hour's worth for theater shows. We've done three of those as Flight of the Conchords, but we've done others as well. If we write another one, we'll probably want to do something different from our last show, which had a lot of gags in it. When we first got on, our performances were really big, but now we're quite subtle in-between songs.

[image] For a while, we didn't talk and just did songs. Over the next few years, talking became a much bigger part of the show.

re: the phases. I think that with the song 1353 they've reached perfection. It's funny, has beautiful music and it tells a story [image] .

re: the songs that don't have enough jokes in them to play now. I don't agree! I [image] new / old You Don't Love Me Anymore and I wish I could hear more of their old songs.

Rockbeat
(As far as I can make it out...):

Do the hustle last night dancing to a rock beat, a rock b-b-b beat

I saw my uncle last night dancing to a rock beat, a rock b-b-b beat

I broke my ankle last night dancing to a rock beat, a rock b-b-b beat

Ohhhh Ohhh Ohhh Oh Oh Rock Beat!!

More comments on lyrics soon, but I will say I adore Bus Driver's Song, Jenny and Stana for their wonderful storytelling and I'm Not Crying for clever lyrics.

But also many more... The Conchords = clever lyrics in my opinion. [image]

I love this thread already. [image]


I think these lyrics are more painful.

I knew I heard 'muscle' there and the article from BUST just put me on the right track.

Maybe this is how the lyrics go:

I pulled a muscle last night, dancing to a rock beat, a rock b-b-b beat

I sore my ankle last night dancing to a rock beat, a rock b-b-b beat

I broke my ankle last night dancing to a rock beat, a rock b-b-b beat

Ohhhh Ohhh Ohhh Oh Oh Rock Beat!!

ADD. Can 'sore' be used as a verb? [image]
