Tell me about how one (or several?) of Ozzys songs s...

I'm just curious. Ozzy has so many songs that I can relate to. Is there one, or two, or many that speak to you?

k I'll go first. See You on the Other Side, well, this song has always been a comfort to me. (Shh, we're getting into my mind for a secret) ... When I hear this song its as if Ozzy is singing out karma. I've cried a million tears blasting this song through my speakers because of the man I love - and on the flip side, just like for hundreds of thousands of other women who have been intrigued by Mr. Osbourne...because, as we all know Ozzy is an incrediby sexy, captivating man...well, sometimes him being eye (and heart) candy helps keep our minds from our everyday worries. :o)

Goodbye to Romance... for all the losses we experience in this life, as time moves on and closes around the space we once were, the faces we once knew and loved deeply. It has this twist of sadness as time does move on. It's reality, and his song gives a frame around thinking those thoughts. That, and I will always remember Ozzy and his love for his son and daughter when he brought them onstage while he was singing. ~* So down to earth and fiiiiiiiirigging SEXY.

OMG how can you NOT love this man?

:-) glad you feel the same way.

Lately the whole No Rest for the Wicked CD and Ozzmosis are hitting home for me. As we're approaching my ex's sentencing in court, this last hearing, so many things run through my mind listening to Ozzy and what he has to say. I'm so very sad, and reflective. I've been going over what the years have been like and it's pretty disappointing. It's been hard to see things without the rosey lens i typically view life through. But it's been necessary. Still so very hard to believe he lost it and flipped our car with us both in it - courtesy of his profound rage for kicking him out. Which all boils down to his death-grip on addiction. so many of Ozzy's songs remind me of him, actually.

I scrolled down and saw this thread. Really interesting.

At the moment "Dreamer" resonates deeply in me and is like my head and my heart speaking all the time. Very simple lyrical approach but sometimes that is the right way.

It's so cool reading how Ozzy's music has touched others, and the connections, associations others have with the words and the songs. Music is just plain amazing and constantly underated or overlooked by people. I really do believe music has healing qualities for some people.

Trap Door is amazingly accurate depiction of life within an addicts head. Yes?

ahhh...i guess because my man relates to intensely to Ozzy too - it makes all his songs so much more interesting and connected to our life. we were both very disappointed about Jimmy Kimmel, we were ready to pack up and drive 800+ miles to see Ozzy.

hey darkblades,,im glad your happy on two levels,,1 glad you feel welcome here..2 im glad you have a spot were you can be you....my hill that i sit on isnt near a city---im inbetween two cities,,sydney and melbourne,,and the highway i see from my hill is 4 kilometres away and i watch the watchers watching me,,,ha ha ha he he he he ,,,
and ozzy's choice of whatever he wants to do on a album is still fine with me too

aww now you're making me feel all welcome here gimp :0_) silly willy! well, i don't have a hill i sit on watching the city, but i do live in the meadows on a mountain in the clouds (sometimes) above the city. and here i can be myself.

hey, someone mentioned Ozzy's next CD being a continuation of the Black Rain CD. do you think that's true, or do you think there'll be very different material? I'm happy either way, i love his music period.

hey darkblades..thought you would of been a fringe dweller..i think most of us here are...and its good to crawl out of the dark..took me a lot of years to do that,,and yes i did figure you were a genuine fringe dweller,
for me fringe dwelling means to be as honest as i can and no bulls***tingmy way through life,,but i still cant seem to enjoy society,,and now im this age i dont think i want too...i have a hill that i sit on and look at the highway and watch society go by,,to quickly i might add,,and theres the problem..

thanks gimp. right, and i know you all are not bad. i just had to learn to pick differently. couldn't pick my past nor the freaks in it. if you knew the half of it you'd think HOLY s***. honestly? for a time i did fall into the darkness. but decided to crawl out.

and btw? i like being 100% genuine with what Ozzy's songs mean to me. and hearing that same honesty from others. why the f*** not? maybe it's near death experience, maybe it's my age.

and scapegoat...my man is a capricorn, while i am a cancer. but he's just like you said - two men in one. i always say "you've got a wild hair growing up your ass" when he goes into his dark side. like Loki, the quintessential mischievous "bad boy." the rebel. just like you said gimp, i'd surely say he's a fringe dweller heh heh. i'm one too - i just learned how to mimic the BPs long enough to bring my paycheck home.

I can't seem to see you baby ... although my eyes are open wide ... but I know I'll see you once more ... when I see you, I'll see you on the other side

g'day scapes,,long time no see,,hows it goin----you are right i think all of humanity can swing to the good or too the dark,,every time i see a shrink they tell me somethin different,,its hard i to think im wrong in this right world,,or im right in a wrong world,,yes every day is a struggle ..i think we just dont fit in ,,maybe..the last pshyc i saw witch was court ordered ,,seen my file and even read it said that every shrink was wrong ,,he called me a fringe dweller..used society for what i needed then dissapeared back to my own world of metal and mayhem,,he told it to me straight and didnt beat around the bushes like the other freaky shrinks who like to bulls*** me..the time i spent with him was good and i made alot of progress..unfortuneatly sort of,, my time with him came to an end ..everybody gets released some day lol ha ha ha ha ha ahha ...alls im trying to say scapes is that your not alone my friend,,, im thinking there are a few here on this site that are fringe dwellers...
p.s. i dont see shrinks anymore,,,dont need them or their imput into my life--only i can decide wich road to take and only i can do it right--- GO THE FRINGE DWELLERS

Well the song for me is definitely diary of a madman.

Mostly due to the fact that when I was younger, as well as even now days I suspect I may be a lil crazy. But according to the psychological field, as well as the public census on crazies and what qualifies you as being some kind of a sociopath, the rule of thumb is if you think you are crazy, well then nine times out of ten your anything but.......

That outlook is somewhat of a relief for me, but it all depends on what kind of day I'm having & how I feel about my own sanity...

Being a Gemini don't help out s*** either, I have always felt like two different people on totally different polar ends of the spectrum, that I am every bit as good as I am evil, thankfully the mellow happy side of goat usually comes out more than my much darker half....

Peace

wow f_darkbladeus. Thats really personal. I will think of you the next time I listen to "Lay you world on me".
Hope you boy friend is healing.
Although I will never really understand addiction because I don't have an addictive personalty I can see how addicts hurt their loved ones although they might not want to do it. Ozzy is the best example. So its no wonder you can rely to songs like that.

geez some man bashing,,hey we aint all that bad..im amazed you havent flipped to the dark side your self,some of us ,men that is,go through an awakening it does take time for us to realize whats important,and i think your man is travelling a road that i have travelled..sometimes its dark and sometimes it gets lonely..you just have to hang in their for him,and at the other end of this road and your still their,he will be yours forever..men dont give trust out that much,well i dont ..take this journey with him...and just keep the faith...enjoy the moment

:-P to all music lovers, specially Ozzy ones, hat's off ~*

today i was listening to Ozzy's Lay Your World on Me. it made me think (as it always does)...how the men in my life were not there for me (not from a lack of wanting, it just turned out that way). my dad cuz he was a Vet and his mind snapped. my older brother who i loved so much drowned when i was 11 (he was 17). fill in the gap with abusive, dysfunctional men of my mom & sisters.

Ozzy's song seems to click into that part of me and it comforts me. big time. i can't explain it, but it's like the words he sings are an apology from them to me, which sounds totally ludicrous, except that's what happens so it must be some part of reality, cuz something clicks inside and feels better. i've wept more than once. hard.

other times it flips and it's my song to my sons. for staying with a man for eleven years who was domestically violent, and barely surviving. for the abandonments i was responsible for with my kids because i was paralized from action, and didn't move on. for them seeing something that s***ty.

and when it flips, i think of my boyfriend who came along and bonded with me, extreme alcoholic & addict. and then despite his love, put me through some of my life's worst s***. then i think of today, and how he's trying, healing those addictions and ways. and it's him singing those words to me. part of me feels at home :-) because he's willing to be there for me now in ways he just wasn't capable of even a year ago. it's better late then never. for sure.

anyways...i love Ozzy. for bringing songs like that to us. seeing the dark side with it makes it un-f***ing-believable - and f***ing awe-inspiring. my man is intense, insane, intelligent, dark, gentle. the closest i'll get to Ozzy is in his arms.

So darkbladeus you're telling me I shouldn't give up hope right? OK, got it. The mum of my godchild is already playing rock songs to her. So we will see. Maybe sometime.

all my kids love metal,,,ozzy did it for them,,and me playing metal to them when they were babes doesnt hurt either,,,,

hey lennonsdaughter, i was thinking my son was going to be a flatliner musically too. he turned down Godsmack and (2nd concert) Disturbed tickets just two years ago - I was totally floored. play CDs and DVDs if you have them around your godchild...and challenge the closed mind. who knows what song will strike a chord. :P something else that helps is if you go to a day concert with cool bands and she sees other kids like herself there or people she admires. my daughter is unusual tho. she has been this way since she was a baby - rocking with me to everything. she's very open. her first concert was Metallica. i could NOT imagine that concert without her. they played 20 minutes away from our house - i mean, it was destiny! if it weren't for the topless girls and July heat in the desert, i would have taken her & my middle son to Ozzfest with SOAD. THAT was a f***ing AWESOME BADASS concert (minus the poor taste in lack of clothing). BUT THERE WAS NO f***ING OZZY IN PHOENIX :-(

neither do i,,,some of my old girl friends maybe,,,,there the beasts of burden,,arh the fond memorys lol ha ha ha

Speaking of Crazy Baby - I am having this thing with playing that song while I'm driving.

My 8 year old freaks over Mr. Crowley - it's her favorite song. She loves the macabre of it. But she loves all Ozzy, really. Unlike my 15 year old son who's latest is Black Metal (two years after his condemnation of all but country music). Baby girl, she's been exploring Pink Floyd - especially Dogs. She can't get over the different sounds that are on the Animals album.

All 3 of my kids are music lovers and metal heads! woo hoo! LOL ~ whatta sick mom :-)

okay sheeple (lol) - wow, how did we open the door to that topic.

Crazy - Baby. Hope you're playing that song Kala while you're dodging all the lunatics and dealing with all the issues down there girl. I've been to Mexico and it is utter insanity. What I saw were the have's (who seem to have alot) and the have nots (who are extremely destitute). Criminals. And Policia. Very sad. Very scary. Not for me, thanks (hugs).

Here where I live, it's alot more mellow. But our main population are cows and horses. I definitely like it though it's a big stretch to call me a cowgirl (heh heh, NOT!). I don't like the city beneath us smothered with a thick gray cloud of pollution - though I do have to drive there to work every day. But home? It's peaceful and has extremely low crime.

I can't seem to see you baby ... although my eyes are open wide ... but I know I'll see you once more ... when I see you, I'll see you on the other side

Wow kala, 20 million thats a lot. Must be a pleasure to drive around this town. Just kidding. Although driving in germany is a bit like war that sounds really bad.

wow thats alot----couldnt deal with that many people---it would do my head in,,,i can just barely deal with the population of my town --150 peoples--and yes sheep are a cool cretaure,,they are my neighbours,,,,hey mofo dont go there with the sheep jokes now--leave me outa that lol ha ha ha ha

Sheep are peaceful!
We are 20 million only in Mexico city. more than 100 000 in the whole country

whats the population there kala,,,,all of australia has i think 25 million,,but heres a fun fact,,but there are nearly 100 million sheep here in australia

Agree the driving comment! Maybe you know that Mexico City is the most crowded in the world and the worst place for driving

Ozzys songs speak to me in many ways. They help me through tough days and make my good days even better. Always causing emotions and giving me patience while driving in my car and getting anoid by other drivers :-).

when i hear trap door it cracks me up because it's so true. not much to say aside of that, right? from an introspection on myself and in general with life.

It's a long list... Ozzy comes to me when I need him!
I'll start with the end:
I've heard people who thought Ozzy has finish his career and, surprise! I'm not going away and I don't wanna stop. At that time I was fired from a good job, more than 40 years and I couldn't get a good job... but I'm not going away! I got a good one and I don't wanna stop!
Sometimes I feel like no one cares for me but ..."I'm here for you"!
It's great to board a Crazy Train when you feel "gimp".
Ozzy sang me See you on the other side when my mother died,
Dairy of a Madman, sure! for me too
As I said, is a long list....

hey its cool dark blades--i like waffling on too..so please waffle on

yea, well, on hindsight? i was windy during my post. what can i say. in my own defense? i somehow got through another crazy relapse my boyfriend had yesterday by cranking up Ozzy. nuff said.

almost every song of ozz speaks to me. But i don't think i want to tell all about them, although, one song, and its - Goodbye to romance, - exactly at this moment, mean very much for me. It's just, few months ago, something happened, and people, friends, which whom i lived, and grown were separated from me. It's like, all new life started, and only thing that left, it's memory's. And that song, that song, just let me know, that i am not alone in situation like That, that most of the people must come true this kind of things. And, it's ok after all, because, at some rates it was my one decision, to leave all the past behind, and lot's of my friend was saying, " what you going to do ? " And i always said.... Well, you knon how it goes right? :)

....But I have to take this chance....

Thas for now. maybe if i'll be in the right mood, i'll writ some more, about ozzy and his songs xDD (i can do it all day long... ^^ )
