Wheel of Lyricism, turn, turn turn! Tell us the lyric that we should learn! And today's lyric is...
I've been through every single book I know
To soothe the thoughts that plague me so...

And the answer to the May 12, 2004 lyric is... Susan Werner, "Attend the Sky".

Re: ooh, ooh, pick me, pick me! ;)
Of course I had to go back through your lyrics posts to see.

I've known 6, and I'd say those 6 were the LEAST obscure. I only commented on 4, don't worry that those numbers don't add up (I knew The Vapors - Turning Japanese one, but Kai'd guessed that, and The Police -Every Little Thing She does is Magic, but that'd been guessed too). I commented on the Simon and Garfunkel one, but didn't guess, per se. So I really just knew and guessed what, Girl from Ipanema (no artist known), this latest Sting one, and Eddie from Ohio (no title given, 5th of July). I dunno. I think it's mostly coincidence, really. I tend to be very patchy and eclectic, musically, so...yeah...

The Girl from Ipanema was written by Antonio Carlos Jobim, BTW. It's been performed by many people.

MUCHO bonus points for gwalla! The version I happened to be listening to at the time was John Pizzarelli's, where he has Daniel Jobim (Antonio's grandson) singing the first verse in Portugese after he sings the first verse in English...

sigh How I love bassa nova...

I tend to be patchy and eclectic musically, too. Sometimes people are amazed at the gaps in my musical knowledge, because I'll have such deep knowledge in some genre and then never have heard of some performer famous for it. But then, I've got some of the widest tastes in music of anybody I know.

As Duke Ellington used to say, "If it sounds good, it is good."
