The Big Bang

Lyrics © 1999 Tony MacLaren

DIGITAL DOMAN SONG INSIGHTS:

As we all start to spend more of our precious time on the internet, we don’t notice that aliens are sucking our brains out through the computer monitors and the cell phones as we speak! .......Just a thought. (Just kidding ..... or am I?) A tune that streams into our online collective consciousness.

1. DIGITAL DOMAIN
(MACLAREN) © 1999

(V1) WE’RE IN THE DIGITAL DOMAIN
INFORMATION HIGHWAY
SPIN ROUND IN CIRCULAR MOTION
INTERACTIVE EMOTION

(CH) WE’RE JUST SURFING THE NET,
SURFING THE NET,
ALL OF THE DATA YOU CAN GET
SURFING THE NET, SURFING THE NET HO
IT’S ALL JUST A CYBERNETIC ROULETTE

(V2) COMPUTER GENERATED
CYBER SEX RATED
THE MAIN FRAME SHAKES WHEN WE CONNECT
HARD DRIVES AS WE INTERSECT

CHORUS

NOW WE TAKE THE QUANTUM LEAP
A JOURNEY RIGHT IN THROUGH THE DOORWAY
TO THE DIGITAL DOMAIN

FOREVER YOURS SONG INSIGHTS:

A lovely song to play to your ‘hearts desire’ as you gently tuck them into the safety and cozy warmth of your bed.

2. FOREVER YOURS
(MACLAREN)  ©1999

(V1) OPEN UP YOUR HEART
BREATHE WITH ME, BREATHE WITH ME
OPEN UP YOUR HEART
BE WITH ME, BE WITH ME FOREVER

(CH) OVER, AROUND THE WORLD
NEVER TOUCH THE  GROUND
I’M FOREVER YOURS
NEVER WILL COME DOWN

(V2) OPEN UP YOUR EARS
HEAR WITH ME, HEAR WITH ME
CAST AWAY YOUR TEARS
HERE WITH ME, HERE WITH ME FOREVER

CHORUS

(Bridge) WHEN I SEE YOUR FACE
IT’S LIKE A THOUSAND CANDLES
THAT LIGHT UP THE DARKNESS OF MY LIFE
WHEN I TASTE YOUR KISSES
THEY SEND SHIVERS DOWN ME
AND I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW
THAT I’M FOREVER YOURS

CHORUS

THE BIG BANG SONG INSIGHTS:

Science meets rock and roll! An unlikely subject for a rock song, the notion of space time continuum, Schrodinger’s cat, black holes and hyperspace, but it still rocks!

3. THE BIG BANG
(MACLAREN) ©1999

(V1) E= MC 2,
ALBERT EINSTEIN HAD COOL HAIR.
MOVING AT THE SPEED OF LIGHT,
COMING DOWN LIKE A METEORITE.
STEVEN HAWKING’S, BIG BLACK HOLE,
HYPERSPACE, REMOTE CONTROL.
COSMIC RAYS BOMBARD THE SKY,
TESLA COULD ELECTRIFY.

(CH) SPACE, THE FINAL FRONTIER
BEAM ME UP, PHASERS ON STUN
WATCH ANOTHER RE-RUN
ARE YOU READY FOR THE BIG BANG
GET READY FOR THE BIG BANG

 (V2) GALILEO’S  DROPPED THE BALL,
NEWTON’S LAW CAUSED IT TO FALL.
SCHRODINGER’S CAT IS NOT DEAD,
SCIENCE MOVES FULL SPEED AHEAD.
SPACE, TIME, CONTINUUM,
HEAR THE RATTLE, HEAR THE HUM,
ORBITING AROUND IN SPACE
SITTING ON MY INTERFACE.

(CHORUS)

WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE SONG INSIGHTS:

As we watch the future unfold, what surprises does it hold? A glimpse into what grand finale could be coming our way! Just remember to listen to your mother’s advice and: “Check your makeup, comb your hair, make sure you wear clean underwear” when worlds collide.

4. WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE
(MACLAREN) © 1999

ALL THE WORLD IS WATCHING
WHILE THE WORLD WIDE WICKED WEB IS WEAVED.
FILLING THE AIR,
WITH ALL THE THOUGHTS THAT WE CONCEIVE.
CAST IT’S SPELL FROM EYE TO EYE,
IT SEEMS THAT WE WILL GO BYE BYE.
THE QUESTION IS UNCLEAR,
WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE
WE STAND HERE SIDE BY SIDE

ALL THE WORLD IS WAITING
FOR THE COUNTDOWN 1999.
THE PLANETS WILL ALIGN,
AS WE WATCH THE BIG PUNCHLINE.
CHECK YOUR MAKEUP, COMB YOUR HAIR,
MAKE SURE YOU WEAR CLEAN UNDERWEAR
AND MAKE YOUR PEACE WITH GOD
REMEMBER TO APPLAUD - OH

CHORUS

ONLY TRUE LOVE, REACHING INSIDE
OUR HEARTS WILL MELT
THE ICY WHISPS OF WINTER WEATHER
WHEN OUR WORLDS COLLIDE

CHORUS

BACK IN THE BIG CITY SONG INSIGHTS:

This song is about living in the big city and the feeling you get when you leave for the tranquility and sanity of  ‘somewhere peaceful and real’ only to return to the city and face the same old trials and tribulations as before.
(Plus some new even crazier ones, to top it off). You regret leaving the glorious place where you just visited.

5. BACK IN THE BIG CITY
(MACLAREN) © 1999

(V1) WE’RE BACK IN THE BIG CITY, IT’S “A” NUMBER ONE.
ALL THE STREETS THEY SAY ARE PAVED WITH GOLD.
THEY SAY THE SKY’S THE LIMIT
AND TO THAT I MUST AGREE.
MY OH MY, IS THAT THE WAY IT’S GOT TO BE?

(CH) WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE,
WILL IT NEVER CHANGE?
ONLY TIME WILL TELL, WHY IT’S SO STRANGE.

(V2) BACK IN THE BIG CITY, IT’LL TAKE YOU TO THE TOP
AND DROP YOU ON YOUR HEAD WITHOUT A NET.
WELL IT’S NO ILLUSION, EVERYONE’S SINCERE
MY OH MY, IS THERE NO WAY OUT OF HERE?
(ONLY TIME WILL TELL)

CHORUS

OUT OF THE DARKNESS,
THE FIRES LIGHT THE SKY UNTIL THE DAWN
EARLY WARNING, PROWL THE STREETS
STEPPING ON THE STARS IN HOLLYWOOD
OVERLOADED, I’VE GOT THE FEELING,
THAT I’M NOT ALONE
BACK IN THE BIG CITY, BACK IN THE BIG SHITTY.

(V3) WE’RE BACK IN THE BIG CITY
IT’S A PLACE THAT’S FULL OF STARS,
YOU CAN SEE THEM MOVING DOWN THE BOULEVARD.
IT’S LIKE SODAM AND GOMORRAH,
YET A LITTLE MORE PERVERSE
MY OH MY, AND IT’S GETTING SO MUCH WORSE.

(CHORUS)

QUANTUM LEAP SONG INSIGHTS:

Warning: This one is like gulping down a few cups of double espresso! It could lead to a serious, overwhelming urge to play ‘air guitar’. If you don’t like loud powerful, ‘slamming the needle into the red’ fusion rock, then you should forget you ever heard this song and just move right along to the next track. Keep going, that’s right. There’s nothing more to see here, just move right along.

7. QUANTUM LEAP
(MACLAREN) © 1999

(V1) LEAVE ALL YOUR BAGGAGE AT THE DOOR
YOU’ LL NOT NEED IT HERE
INTO THE OCEAN OF OUR MINDS
MUST WE GO DO JOURNEY.

FEEL THE RUSH COMING UP OVER YOU
THE WAVES ARE CRASHING
YOU’RE JUST BREAKING THROUGH
ABSORB THE ENERGY, ALL YOU CAN KEEP
THE FEELINGS RUN SO DEEP.

(CH) YOU DO THE  QUANTUM LEAP,
QUANTUM LEAP
YOU DO THE QUANTUM LEAP, QUANTUM LEAP

(V2) THE ANSWER TO YOUR BURNING QUEST
RESTS WITH THE POWERS THAT BE
IT’S AN ILLUSION THAT WE’ RE TRAPPED
INSIDE THIS MYSTERE.

HEAR THE ROAR OF THE SILENCE AHEAD
YOU SEE THE GRID PATTERNS
OVER YOUR HEAD
THE FUNGUS IS AMONG US,
STARTING TO CREEP
WHEN YOUR PAGER STARTS TO BEEP

(CHORUS)

HAIL BOP SONG INSIGHTS:

A fun five speed ride in cruise control up interstate 5 with the top down on a sunny California day! This power trio’s bouncy instrumental song, bops and soars along like a lone shining comet, illuminating the vast darkness of space. Play it loud!

HOLD ON SONG INSIGHTS:

This song seems to resonate with people who are in love. This song could be sung as a serenade to win your true love’s heart. A testament to the power of romance and true love, this is a reassuring song of hope for soulmates who ‘hold on’ against insurmountable odds.

9. HOLD ON
(MACLAREN) © 1999

(V1) YOU ARE THE MOST REMARKABLE LADY
I’VE ENCOUNTERED BY FAR, YOU ARE MY STAR.
YOU ARE THE LOVER OF MY DREAMS
I HAVE BEEN WAITING SO LONG,
TO GIVE YOU MY SONG, TO GIVE MY SONG.

(CH) SO HOLD ON,
THE LOVE WILL FIND A WAY TO COME,
THIS IS ONLY PART OF IT,
WE’VE ONLY REALLY JUST BEGUN SO HOLD ON,
THE HEARTS WE SHARE ENTWINE AS ONE,
BEATING TO A HIGHER DRUM,
DANCING IN THE LIGHT OF OUR LOVE.

(V2) WE WERE MEANT TO BE TOGETHER
WE ARE ONE OF A KIND,
YOU WERE SO HARD TO FIND.
YOU ARE THE ONE IN A HUNDRED MILLION
YOU ARE THE ONE, TO HEAR MY SONG,
TO HEAR MY SONG.

CHORUS

(Bridge) YOU AND ME WERE MEANT TO BE,
IT CAN HAPPEN EASILY
IF YOU’D ONLY TAKE THE CHANCE.
WHAT I’M SAYING IS TRUE,
THAT I’M CRAZY FORYOU
CHORUS

SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION SONG INSIGHTS:

A wee bit of my Scottish roots come a peeking out from under my kilt in this wild, raucous, over the top, testosterone fueled, barn burning foot stomper!

10. SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION
(MACLAREN) © 1999

(V1) NOW STEP RIGHT UP AND SEE THE MAN
WHO PULLS UPON THE WIRES.
HO - REEL IT IN AND PULL IT OUT
AND PUSH UP WAY UP HIGHER.
OH - A WEAVING IN AND OUT AND JUMPING  UP AND DOWN THE FRETBOARD.
WE PUT OUR HANDS TOGETHER NOW
AND STOMP UPON THE FLOOR.
(CH) SO COME ALONG AND SHOW YOUR TEETH
AND CRACK A SMILE UPON YOUR FACE,
WE HAVE SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION
AND WE BURN OFF INTO SPACE.

(V2) THE HEAT IS ON, I’M LATHERED UP
A SWINGING MY SHILLELAGH,
NO- I WONT GIVE UP WITHOUT A FIGHT
I HAVEN’T HAD MY SAY.
SO WATCH ME NOW, I STAND MY GROUND AWAITNG FAHRENHEIT.
A THINKING ABOUT THE TIME
WHEN I AM GOING TO IGNITE.
SO COME ALONG AND SHOW YOUR TEETH AND WIPE THAT PUSS OFF YOUR FACE,
OH - WE HAVE  SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION
WATCH  US BURN OFF INTO SPACE.
