What are some similar lyrics that artists have used in more than one song? I see this in Elliott Smith's writing.

"Savannah shoulder raised a cheer coloring the sky with ash" - Stupidity Tries, Elliott Smith

"When you walked out on the Savannah shoulder, With your veins all full of beer" - Georgia Georgia, Elliott Smith

"Made an angel in the snow" - Clementine, Elliott Smith

"I'd say you make a perfect angel in the snow" - Angel in the Snow, Elliott Smith

"The moon is a light bulb breaking" - St. Ides Heaven, Elliott Smith

"Under this bare light bulb, The moon is a sickle cell" - Coming up Roses, Elliott Smith


there not the same lyric of course, but there kind of similar. Discuss other places where artists use similar lyrics.

Means he either likes the themes or has a lack of creativity.

Rise Against mention angels in half of their songs.

EDIT: I haven't heard him before, that is why I said he either likes the theme or has no creativity.

HE was actually a pretty creative guy. One of my favorite lyricists.

A lot of blues songs have the same lyrics as each other.

And eight gajillion songs have the lyric: "
If the river was whiskey and I was a duck I would swim to the bottom and I'd never come up."

I suggest you listen to some Elliott Smith before you say he wasn't creative. Yea, he used some lyrics that were similar. I wasn't saying he wasn't creative. He has written hundreds of songs, I am sure in there, a line or two is similar.

I once had a singer, who must have had an unwritten rule that required her to make a reference to respiration in every song.

BREATH
BREATHE
BREATHING
CHOKE
CHOKED
CHOKING
DROWN
DROWNED
DROWNING
SUFFOCATE
SUFFOCATION
SUFFOCATED
SUFFOCATING

she was an avril lavinge/evanessence wanna-be ( I left that band immediately, we were supposed to play death metal/goregrind, not nu-metal... I don't know how it changed from SFU/Cannibal Corpse/Napalm Death influenced to nu-metal so fast )

I am suffocating from your control
I can not breathe with you around me
I am drowning in my sorrow
Chocking on your empathy

That's what every song sounded like to me
Her uncontrolled vocals were like a disease
Sometimes I really wished she was suffocating
On a d*** as she was down on her knees

edit - I think a really old member here had the same chick as a singer before, one of my friends used to come here. IDK him anymore, but I think he was in an almost identical situation with her. I guess he was doing a melo-death group and the wanted a clean singer and she took over with her evanessence-wanna-be,sleeping with the guitar player schtick.

Protest The Hero's entire "Kezia" album repeats a lot of similar lyrics.
even though it is a concept album, I guess its the only thing I could think of.

Thank You (Led Zeppelin) has very similar lyrics in one part as the song If 6 Was 9 (Jimi Hendrix). Take a look...

Thank You:

If the sun refused to shine,
I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea,
there will still be you and me.


If 6 Was 9:

If the sun refuse to shine,
I don't mind, I don't mind,
If the mountains fell in the sea,
let it be, it ain't me.

cKy wrote a song about going to a place called "Hellview". Then they wrote a song called "Escape From Hellview". They're both really catchy songs.

Something a bit similar to the topic, on the Double-A side Queen single Bicycle Race/Fat Bottomed Girls they each have references to each other.

There was another one that I can't remember now -- Ah yes, Glass Onion by The Beatles references many another Beatles song, while in and of itself being one of their best songs.

All basically have something exactly or extremely close to that phrase.

There are millions more.
