Friday 27 April, 2012 at 7:48 am

Believe it or not, today Stars Uncharted celebrates its 100th feature. This seemed like a good opportunity to revisit some of the artists that have been featured here so far and showcase more of their phenomenal songs. There are a lot of artists to cover, so this will require a few separate features. Enjoy!

Walk / Goh Nakamura

Lyrics

Take a walk in the fall
and in the streets you just might find
secret songs in concrete vaults

To help and get her off your mind

Take a walk, left and right
and it does something to your head
dusty thoughts and memories

and stupid things you should have left unsaid

Take a walk, it’s a feat
I mean, come on, what are the odds?
You met a girl, not any girl…

you met someone who moved your heart

Now she’s gone
well technically, I was the one who had to leave
reluctantly
abducted me
and now I’m staring at the Autumn leaves.

Red heads and Blondes catcalling from the streets.

Take a walk, take a breath
and take her off this pedestal
you gave your heart too much control
and now it’s hijacking your soul
and now it’s telling the bus where to go
as if it knows, as if it knows

broke down and crying on the side of the road.

Take a walk, reminisce
and revel in this miracle
right and left and silhouettes
of someone that you lost and miss

Take a walk in the night
in the streets you just might find
secret songs in concrete vaults
to help you get her off your mind

Bust Your Knee Caps / Pomplamoose

Lyrics

Jonny don’t leave me,
You said you’d love me forever.
Honey believe me,
I’ll have your heart on a platter.

Might you recall,
We’ve got a small family business
And the Family won’t like this.

They’ll bust your knee caps.
Ooh wop de do wop de do.
They’ll bust your knee caps.
Ooh wop de do wop de do.

Jonny you told me
you were no fool, you were no chump
Then you got cold feet.
Now all you’ll be is a speed bump.

It’s something we call,
Oh just a small family business.
And the family won’t like this.

They’ll bust your knee caps.
Ooh wop de do wop de do.
They’ll bust your knee caps.
That’s what they’re going to do.

Jonny there’s still time.
Together I know, we’d go so far.
I’ll tell uncle Rocco
to call off the guys with the crowbars.

You call it crime.
We call it smart family business.
And the family is famous.

LET’S BUST SOME KNEE CAPS!!

It’s such a shame
That you became such an issue.
Oh dear Jonny, I’ll miss you.

They’ll bust your knee caps.
That’s what they’re going to do.
They’ll bust your knee caps.
Probably some other stuff, too.

They’ll bust your knee caps.
Ooh wop de do wop de do.
They’ll bust your knee caps.
Ooh yeah they’re coming for you.

Smoke And Mirrors / Sean Lennon

Lyrics

I know what you want
It’s easy to see
I know what you need, it isn’t me
I’m different than you dream

Things are not as they seem
Not as they appear to us
It’s all smoke and mirrors

And down by the gates
Our enemies waits
Let’s make our escape before it’s too late
I know this isn’t what we planned

But try to understand
If you get the shivers
It’s all smoke and mirrors

The jokers are wild
Heartless as a child
So who is the man behind the mask
I know you shouldn’t have to ask

And as we disappear
Can anyone hear us?
It’s all smoke and mirrors
