Sigur Ros's ( ) album, of course. Just random cooing and wailing. Great album though.

Magma and a lot of Syd Barrett solo. "Honey love you honey little honey money funny morning sunny" whatever whatever. But with both that's how it should be.

"Cabin Fever"

818, I'm on the way (I'm on the way)
I'm thinking about you every day (Everyday)
I think we should spend some time away (Stay on the beach)
Stay with me in heaven everyday (Everyday)

I wanna feel your body on me
Tall palm trees and kaleidoscope dreams
I'm at home thinking about you and me

'Cause girl, I got that cabin fever
You made me a believer
Eating marshmallow pies, I can see it in your eyes
Girl, you're speaking and I wanna believe ya

Girl, I really wanna believe ya
If you love me, how come I never see ya?
Eating marshmallow pies while we're flying through the sky
Girl, I got that cabin fever

310, we're on the go (We're on the go)
Our life just like roller coast (Rollercoaster)
I sip slow, you took too long
My heart and soul, I call your phone, I'm on the road

I wanna feel your body on me
Tall palm trees and kaleidoscope dreams
I'm at home thinking about you and me

'Cause girl, I got that cabin fever
You made me a believer
Eating marshmallow pies, I can see it in your eyes
Girl, you're speaking and I wanna believe ya

Girl, I really wanna believe ya
If you love me, how come I never see ya?
Eating marshmallow pies while we're flying through the sky
Girl, I got that cabin fever

Up every night, got me up every night
Stuck on your eyes, this life it's full of surprises
Hand on your thigh, I got your bed on my mind

Dreaming 'bout it, summertime
Thinking 'bout it, summertime
She's a goddess, body divine
Girl, you're sweeter than a grape off the vine
Dreaming 'bout it, summertime

(I got that cabin fever)
(I got that cabin fever)

I'm sure I posted this in some other meaningless lyrics thread. I worry about myself sometimes, knowing them all by heart.

Miss Shapiro - Brian Eno/Phil Manzanera

All the peasants in the squares
At their tables and their chairs
Set to salvage certain numbers
From the wonder of the tundra
And the muses in the gloom
Counting needles in their rooms
On the carpet in the corner
In a kind of secret slumber
While the in formation rain
Slashed the dirty window pane to the square.

Smoky broads and smoky windows in the square
Come come charmer come on over for the day
Disappearing cocoa forests flash and die
Fortunes crumble all demolished in the bay.

Over forty pointed people
In the perfect pointed steeple
Looked to see the lucky number
Yes the wonder of the tundra
Had come up to fame and fortune
Singing his tune, my tune, your tune
Wooing daughters of the gifted
On the carpets of the courtrooms
While the tickets were expensive
The show was quite relentless in the square.

Dalai llama lama puss puss
Stella maris missa nobis
Miss a dinner miss shapiro
Shampoos pot-pot pinkies pampered
Movement hampered like at christmas
Ha-ha isn't life a circus
Round in circles like the archers
Always stiff or always starchy
Yes it's happening and it's fattening
And it's all that we can get into the show.

Ah, sorry, looking for lyrics in no language. Carry on...

Orson Well Yeah (Dan Peterson), Thursday, 30 July 2020 17:07 (one week ago) link

Mmm if we’re going for songs with made up languages or dadaist experiments these come to mind:

Elton John - “Solar Prestige A Gammon”
Talking Heads - “I zimbra”
Tom Waits - “Kommienezuspadt”
Adriano Celentano - “Prisencolinensinainciusol”
Magma’s discography
Most of Sigur Ros’ discography

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 30 July 2020 17:30 (one week ago) link

Most of these have been mentioned already...

✖✖✖ (Moka), Thursday, 30 July 2020 17:32 (one week ago) link

Enya and Cocteau Twins also have a couple of lyrics in made up languages I think?

Forgot to mention Yoko Kanno, she also does the fake language thing a lot.
