Trivia for 4 fun rock songs with "psycho" lyrics feat. The Smiths, Talking Heads, Bon Jovi and Def Leppard. Lyrics, info and videos are included.

This article is a sequel to the factoid 5 Psycho Rock Songs Featuring Nick Cave, Def Leppard, The Police, Metallica and Guns N' Roses.

This article also features Def Leppard, but it is a different song from the same album (Retro Active).

The Smiths - There Is a Light That Never Goes Out

The Smiths is a British alternative rock band founded in 1982 and that broke up in 1987. There is a light that never goes out is from their third album The Queen is Dead, released in 1986.

The song starts out as a sweet and romantic number but the part below may not exactly represent a healthy mindset:

Lyrics:

“And if a double-decker bus

Crashes into us

To die by your side

Is such a heavenly way to die

And if a ten-ton truck

Kills the both of us

To die by your side

Well, the pleasure - the privilege is mine”

Talking Heads - Psycho Killer

Talking Heads is an American rock/new wave band founded in 1974. The band gave a break in 1991 but they are still active as of 2002. Psycho Killer is a popular song from their debut 1977 album called Talking Heads: 77. Interestingly enough, this album was produced by Tony Bongiovi, who happens to be rocker Jon Bon Jovi’s second cousin. Bon Jovi also has a song on this Psycho Songs List.

This is the song I was reminded of when I published the first article.

Lyrics:

“I can't seem to face up to the facts

I'm tense and nervous and I can't relax

I can't sleep cause my bed's on fire

Don't touch me I'm a real live wire

Psycho killer, qu'est que c'est

Far better

Run away

Psycho killer, que'st que c'est

Far better

Run away

Oh yeah

You start a conversation you can't seem to finish it

You're talkin' a lot but you're not sayin' anything

When I have nothing to say my lips are sealed

Say something once why say it again”

Bon Jovi - If I Was Your Mother

“If I was your mother” is from the 1992 Bon Jovi album Keep the Faith and it is the one Bon Jovi song that could really give Freud a field day.

If I was your mother

Would you let me hold your hand

Would you say you were my baby

Would you always be my friend

If I was your mother

Could I teach you what's right

Could I tell you stories

Maybe tuck you in

And kiss you sweet goodnight

Tell me what I got to do

To make my life mean more to you

I could get so close it's true

If I was your mother

Would you always believe me

'Cause I'd wake up in the middle

Of the night

Just to see if you need me

Tell me there's no mother

To who you're telling your secrets

And would you tell me

'Bout all the boys you been

Bringing home to meet me

Tell me what I got to do

To make my life mean more to you

I could get so close it's true

If I was yours ….”

Def Leppard- From the Inside

From the Inside is an acoustic song from English rock band Def Leppard’s album Retro Active, released in 1993. The song’s lyrics speaks for itself.

Lyrics:

“I am bad, I am evil,

I am winter, I am pain.

I'll mess up your life,

I'll beat up your wife,

I'll lose all your friends,

And I'll win in the end.

So you play the joker,

And I'll play the clown,

And I'll laugh while you're up there,

And I'll laugh when you're down.

Though your screams break the silence,

Oh, they won't make a sound.

Na na na na na na na na

I will rise, I will take you,

I will break you, never let you go.

I'll shoot through your veins,

I'll drive you insane,

I'll poison your breath,

And I'll love you to death.

So you be the joker,

And I'll be the clown,

And you'll laugh when you're up there,

But you'll cry when you're down.

Though your screams break the silence,

Oh, they won't make a sound.

Na na na na na na na na
