Let's see if I can post a decent post here.



Iron Maiden's The Number of the Beast.



Try for the KJV (King James Version). It's harder to read, but some (English-speaking) religious fundamentalists figure it's the only legitimate version (that and the Geneva and Tyndale), though you might want read it with a modern version.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_James_Only_movement

You can download these
https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Autho..._James_Version

https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Bible...James)/Matthew
Chapter 6
(my bold)


also,

Don't worry, it's not Christian Rock: indeed, it was written by a former member of the American Communist Party USA (CPUSA).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turn!_Turn!_Turn!

Spoiler for The Byrds - Turn! Turn! Turn!:





Wasn't that growling by Gollum?



"'T'was in the darkest depts of Mordor, I meet a girl so fair, but Gollum, and the evil one."



I listened to it twice. It grow a bit on me in the second.




not much of a Star Wars fan. Return of the Jedi was the latest I saw; but this is a good song. He could say nothing about Wookies or anything about Star Wars and it'd still be good.






https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ri...ncient_Mariner



Okay.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ri...opular_culture

Get's (particularly) good around 8:36.

^ Good call, ziggywas. That's a Dylan track that doesn't often get mentioned, but I've always liked it as one of his more light-hearted fantasies.

Referencing in music is big and sprawling topic and Maria has done well to bring it up. Perhaps you should've narrowed the focus a bit in your OP though, Maria as the subject could've been spread out over different threads, according to different types of references.

One thread we already have, for instance, is for songs that talk about music:- https://www.musicbanter.com/general-...sic-music.html
__________________________________________________ __________

Some songs slip in a reference or two along the way, and expect the listener to pick them up, rather like Bob Dylan's 115th Dream. Others are more explicit, and straight-out name check various people, for example:-
Macklemore: Growing Up
Bowie: Andy Warhol and Song For Bob Dylan
Eric Burdon: Monterey
And a personal favourite, Rave On John Donne:-



^ Who but Van Morrison can convincingly deliver the line, "Rave on through the industrial revolution"? Gotta love his passionate clarion call for a poet he admires so much.

you're not interrupting anything, ziggywas I actually had that track stuck in my head a lot when I read Moby Dick. Awesome that Van Morrisson made a track about John Donne!
