    Or at least I think it will be. I won concert tickets a few years ago on this question, actually proved the DJ wrong by giving a song he wasn't ready for.

    To the best of my knowledge, only two popular rock songs have the word "stadium" in the lyrics. Name them.

    Apollo Fourty Four had a song, Stadium Parking Lot. #2?

    Never heard of that one. Both of these are well known staples on classic rock stations.

    1. "Making love in the green grass
    Behind the stadium with you..."

    2. "And the words of the prophets
    Were written on the stadium walls,
    Concert hall"

    Limelight

    Living on a lighted stage
    Approaches the unreal
    For those who think and feel
    In touch with some reality
    Beyond the gilded cage

    Cast in this unlikely role,
    Ill-equipped to act
    With insufficient tact
    One must put up barriers
    To keep oneself intact

    Living in the limelight
    The universal dream
    For those who wish to seem

    Those who wish to be
    Must put aside the alienation
    Get on with the fascination
    The real relation
    The underlying theme

    Living in a fisheye lens
    Caught in the camera eye
    I have no heart to lie
    I can't pretend a stranger
    Is a long-awaited friend

    All the world's indeed a stage
    And we are merely players
    Performers and portrayers
    Each another's audience
    Outside the gilded cage

    umm...

    sound of silence (excerpt)

    And the people bowed and prayed
    To the neon God they made.
    And the sign flashed out it’s warning,
    In the words that it was forming.
    And the sign said, "the words of the prophets
    Are written on the subway walls
    And tenement halls."

    And whisper’d in the sounds of silence.


    Its closer... but not dead on. Are you sure the lyric exists?

    Ack...brain fart on my part. I was thinking Spirit of Radio and typed Limelight...


    Begin the day
    With a friendly voice
    A companion, unobtrusive
    Plays that song that's so elusive
    And the magic music makes your morning mood

    Off on your way
    Hit the open road
    There is magic at your fingers
    For the Spirit ever lingers
    Undemanding contact
    In your happy solitude





    Invisible airwaves
    Crackle with life
    Bright antennae bristle
    With the energy
    Emotional feedback
    On a timeless wavelength
    Bearing a gift beyond price ---
    Almost free...

    All this machinery
    Making modern music
    Can still be open-hearted
    Not so coldly charted
    It's really just a question
    Of your honesty

    One likes to believe
    In the freedom of music
    But glittering prizes
    And endless compromises
    Shatter the illusion
    Of integrity

    "For the words of the prophets
    Are written on the stadium wall,
    Concert hall ---
    Echoes with the sounds...
    Of salesmen."

    Thought that might have been it... I just couldn't remember the title 'Spirit of Radio'.

    I heard the song today, and I have to ask... are you sure it's not studio wall instead of stadium wall?

    I thought we had a lyric trivia thread...appears I been smoking something. So I'll hijack this.
    Simple enough, guess the song and artist (no cheating with search engines) and then it's your turn up to bat.



    I don't know but I've been told,
    If you keep on dancing you'll never grow old.
