Wonder Why by Juliana Hatfield

The living room
The curly sheepskin rug we called “the furry”
And sometimes I wonder why
The plastic clock, the macrame owl, and the butcher block couch are on my mind

I wonder why my parents chose a brown and orange scheme
And why that seemed okay to me
I wonder why the kitchen was an avocado green
And the upstairs bathroom was peach

The northern lights
We saw them in Vermont one night from the car
But only once, I wonder why
The aliens who landed on the roof, they left me there
And didn’t take me to the sky
I’ve escaped into my childhood memories tonight

I wonder why my corduroys were always light blue
And I never had a TV in my bedroom
Just a flame from an electric candle on my windowsill
And I dreamed of my melodies touching you

I wonder why the marimekko fabric on the wall was ever taken down
I wonder how a transistor radio held up to my ear
Brought me to heaven
And it’s still leading me here

YES... AND GREEN SHAG CARPET... WHEN WE MOVED IN THERE WAS ACTUALLY A RAKE FOR THE GREEN SHAG CARPET...

American Girl by Tom Petty

Well, she was an American girl
Raised on promises
She couldn't help thinkin'
That there was a little more to life somewhere else
After all it was a great big world
With lots of places to run to
And if she had to die tryin'
She had one little promise she was gonna keep

O yeah, all right
Take it easy, baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl

Well it was kind of cold that night,
She stood alone on her balcony
Yeah, she could hear the cars roll by,
Out on 441 like waves crashin' on the beach
And for one desperate moment
There he crept back in her memory
God it's so painful when something that's so close
Is still so far out of reach

O yeah, all right
Take it easy, baby
Make it last all night
She was an American girl

OH MY MY, OH HELL YES... WE WILL MISS YOU BROTHER

End of the World by Skeeter Davis

Why does the sun go on shining
Why does the sea rush to shore
Don't they know it's the end of the world
'Cause you don't love me any more
Why do the birds go on singing
Why do the stars glow above
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when I lost your love
I wake up in the morning and I wonder
Why everything's the same as it was
I can't understand, no, I can't understand
How life goes on the way it does
Why does my heart go on beating
Why do these eyes of mine cry
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when you said goodbye
Why does my heart go on beating
Why do these eyes of mine cry
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when you said goodbye

Running on Empty by Jackson Browne



Looking back at the years gone by like so many summer fields
In sixty-five I was seventeen and running up one-o-one
I don't know where I'm running now, I'm just running on

Running on - running on empty
Running on - running blind
Running on - running into the sun
But I'm running behind

Gotta do what you can just to keep your love alive
Trying not to confuse it with what you do to survive
In sixty-nine I was twenty-one and I called the road my own
I don't know when that road turned onto the road I'm on

Running on - running on empty
Running on - running blind
Running on - running into the sun
But I'm running behind

Everyone I know, everywhere I go
People need some reason to believe
I don't know about anyone but me
If it takes all night, that'll be all right
If I can get you to smile before I leave

Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
I don't know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels
I look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through
Looking into their eyes I see them running too

Running on - running on empty
Running on - running blind
Running on - running into the sun
But I'm running behind

Honey you really tempt me
You know the way you look so kind
I'd love to stick around but I'm running behind
You know I don't even know what I'm hoping to find
Running into the sun but I'm running behind

What a Difference a Day Makes by Dinah Washington

What a difference a day makes
Twenty-four little hours
Brought the sun and the flowers
Where there used to be rain

My yesterday was blue, dear
Today I'm a part of you, dear
My lonely nights are through, dear
Since you said you were mine

What a difference a day makes
There's a rainbow before me
Skies above can't be stormy
Since that moment of bliss, that thrilling kiss

It's heaven when you find romance on your menu
What a difference a day made
And the difference is you

What a difference a day makes
There's a rainbow before me
Skies above can't be stormy
Since that moment of bliss, that thrilling kiss

It's heaven when you find romance on your menu
What a difference a day made
And the difference is you

NAH... IT WAS NO BETTER THAN, SAY, MOWING THE LAWN

Fools Errand by Fleet Foxes

I knew you fine, sight dream of mine
But I know my eyes they've often lied
And I move like blood, like fire and flood
Despite you

Blind love couldn't win
As the facts all came in
But I know I'll again chase after wind
What have I got if not a thought?

I knew, oh I knew
I knew

It was a fool's errand
Waiting for a sign
I can't leave until the sight comes to mind
A fool's errand

Life will repeat
Vision I see
The mouth and the teeth
That's fine with me
What have I got if not a thought?

I knew, oh I knew
I knew

It was a fool's errand
Waiting for a sign
But I can't leave until the sign comes to mind
A fool's errand

But I can make it through
I was thin and I saw All Life in you
A fool's errand

UH, HONEY... GET THE KIDS. LETS GET OFF THIS BEACH... THERE ARE SOME FLIPPING WIERD PEOPLE HERE.

Play That Funky Music by Wild Cherry





Hey, do it now
Yeah, hey

Hey, Once I was a boogie singer playin' in a Rock and Roll Band
I never had no problems, yeah
Burnin' down one night stands
And everything around me, yeah
Got to stop to feelin' so low And I decided quickly (Yes I did)
To disco down and check out the show
Yeah, they was dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down the boogie and play that funky music till you die
Till you die
Oh ya, ya

I tried to understand this
I thought that they were out of their minds
How could I be so foolish (How could I)
To not see I was the one behind
So still I kept on fighting
Well, losing every step of the way
I said, I must go back there (I got to go back)
And check to see if things still the same
Yeah they was dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down the boogie and play that funky music till you die
Till you die, ya
Till you die

(Gonna play that electified funky music, yeah)

(Hey, wait a minute)
Now first it wasn't easy
Changin' Rock and Roll and minds and things were getting shaky
I thought I'd have to leave it behind
But now it's so much better (it's so much better)
I'm funking out in every way
But I'll never lose that feelin' (no I won't)
Of how I learned my lesson that day
When they were dancin' and singin' and movin' to the groovin'
And just when it hit me somebody turned around and shouted
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Lay down the boogie and play that funky music till you die
Till you die
Oh' till you die

They shouted play that funky music
(Play that funky music)
Play that funky music
(You Gotta keep on playin' funky music)
Play that funky music
(Play that funky music)
Play that funky music
(Come and take you higher, ya)
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right, ya
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right
Play that funky music white boy
Play that funky music right

The Rising by Bruce Springsteen


Can't see nothin' in front of me
Can't see nothin' coming up behind
I make my way through this darkness
I can't feel nothing but this chain that binds me
Lost track of how far I've gone
How far I've gone, how high I've climbed
On my back's a sixty pound stone
On my shoulder a half mile line

Come on up for the rising
Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising
Come on up for the rising tonight

Left the house this morning
Bells ringing filled the air
Wearin' the cross of my calling
On wheels of fire I come rollin' down here

Come on up for the rising
Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising
Come on up for the rising tonight

Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li

Spirits above and behind me
Faces gone black, eyes burnin' bright
May their precious blood forever bind me
Lord as I stand before your fiery light

Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li

I see you Mary in the garden
In the garden of a thousand sighs
There's holy pictures of our children
Dancin' in a sky filled with light
May I feel your arms around me
May I feel your blood mix with mine
A dream of life comes to me
Like a catfish dancin' on the end of the line

Sky of blackness and sorrow (a dream of life)
Sky of love, sky of tears (a dream of life)
Sky of glory and sadness (a dream of life)
Sky of mercy, sky of fear (a dream of life)
Sky of memory and shadow (a dream of life)
Your burnin' wind fills my arms tonight
Sky of longing and emptiness (a dream of life)
Sky of fullness, sky of blessed life (a dream of life)

Come on up for the rising
Come on up, lay your hands in mine
Come on up for the rising
Come on up for the rising tonight

Li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li, li

Sweet Disposition by The Temper Trap





Sweet disposition
Never too soon
Oh, reckless abandon
Like no one's watching you

A moment of love
A dream
A laugh
A kiss
A cry
Our rights
Our wrongs
A moment of love
A dream
A laugh
A moment of love
A dream
A laugh

So stay there
'Cause I'll be coming over
While our blood's still young
It's so young, it runs
Won't stop 'til it's over
Won't stop to surrender

Songs of desperation
I played them for you

A moment of love
A dream
A laugh
A kiss
A cry
Our rights
Our wrongs
A moment of love
A dream
A laugh
A moment of love
A dream
A laugh

Stay there
'Cause I'll be coming over
While our blood's still young
It's so young, it runs
Won't stop 'til it's over
Won't stop to surrender

Won't stop 'til it's over
Won't stop 'til it's over
Won't stop 'til it's over
Won't stop to surrender


A moment of love
A dream
A laugh
A kiss
A cry
Our rights
Our wrongs
A moment of love
A dream
A laugh
A moment of love
A dream
A laugh

Won't stop 'til it's over
Won't stop 'til it's over
Won't stop 'til it's over
Won't stop to surrender

Walking in the Rain by The Ronettes

I want him, and I need him
And someday someday wooo I'll meet him
He'll be kind of shy, and real good lookin' too
And I'll be certain he's my guy by the things he'll like to do..

Like walking in the rain (like walking in the rain)
And wishing on the stars (and wishing on the stars) up above
And being so in love

When he's near me, I'll kiss him,
And when he leaves me woo I'll miss him
Though somethimes we'll fight, I won't really care
And I'll know it's gonna be alright cause we've got so much we share

Like walking in the rain (like walking in the rain)
And wishing on the stars (and wishing on the stars) up above
And being so in love

(Johnny) no no he'll never do
(Bobby) no it isn't him too
They would never no they'd never never ever love
Walking in the rain (like walking in the rain)
And wishing on the stars (and wishing on the stars) up above
And being so in love

Oh Oh Oh Where can he be oh oh

KAY, SO THIS SONG AND THE ONE FROM YESTERDAY CLEARLY DEMONSTRATE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HOW GIRLS VIEW A RELATIONSHIP AND THE WAY DUDES VIEW THEM...

Miss You by The Rolling Stones




I've been holding out so long
I've been sleeping all alone
Lord I miss you
I've been hanging on the phone
I've been sleeping all alone
I want to kiss you

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh
Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh
Oooh oooh oooh

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh
Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh
Oooh oooh oooh oooh

Well, I've been haunted in my sleep
You've been staring in my dreams
Lord I miss you.
I've been waiting in the hall
Been waiting on your call
When the phone rings
It's just some friends of mine that say,
"Hey, what's the matter man?
We're gonna come around at twelve
With some Puerto Rican girls that are just dyin' to meet you
We're gonna bring a case of wine
Hey, let's go mess and fool around
You know, like we used to"

You've been strung up for her too long,
You know - girls will come and go -
They're just like streetcars...
I've been staying here too long,
Sometimes I feel so
Abandoned...

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah
Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah
Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

Oh everybody waits so long
Oh baby why you wait so long
Won't you come on! Come on!

I've been walking Central Park
Singing after dark
People think I'm crazy
I've been stumbling on my feet
Shuffling through the street
People ask me, "What's the matter with you boy?"

Sometimes I want to say to myself
Sometimes I say

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh
Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh
Oooh oooh oooh

Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh
Oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh oooh
I won't miss you child

I guess I'm lying to myself
It's just you and no one else
Lord I won't miss you child
You've been blotting out my mind
Fooling on my time
No, I won't miss you, baby, yeah

Lord, I miss you child

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah
Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah
Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

Lord, I miss you child

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah
Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah
Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

Lord, I miss you child

Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah
Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah
Aaah Aaah Aaah Aaah

My Ding-a-Ling by Chuck Berry


When I was a little bitty boy
My grandmother bought me a cute little toy
Silver bells hanging on a string
She told me it was my ding-a-ling-a-ling, oh

My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
I want you to play with my ding-a-ling
My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
I want you to play with my ding-a-ling

You know, then mama took me to Sunday school
They tried to teach me the golden rule
Everytime that choir would sing
Watch me playin' with my ding-a-ling-a-ling, oh

My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
I want you to play with my ding-a-ling
My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
I want you to play with my ding-a-ling

Once I was climbing the garden wall
I slipped and had a terrible fall
I fell so hard, I heard bells ring
But held on to my ding-a-ling-a-ling, oh

My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
I want you to play with my ding-a-ling
My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
I want you to play with my ding-a-ling

Once, I was swimmin' 'cross Turtle Creek
Man, them snappers all around my feet
Sure was hard swimmin' 'cross that thing
With both hands holdin' my ding-a-ling-a-ling, oh

My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
I want you to play with my ding-a-ling
My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
I want you to play with my ding-a-ling

This little song, it ain't so sad
The cutest little song you ever had
Those of you who will not sing
You must be playin' with your own ding-a-ling

My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
I want you to play with my ding-a-ling
My ding-a-ling, my ding-a-ling
I want you to play with my ding-a-ling

Your own ding-a-ling, your own ding-a-ling
We saw you playin' with your own ding-a-ling
My ding-a-ling, everybody sing
I wanna play with my ding-a-ling
I wanna play with my ding-a-ling

Shop Around by The Miricles

When I became of age my mother called me to her side,
She said,"Son, you're growing up now pretty soon you'll take a bride.
And then she said, "Just because you've become a young man now,
There's still somethings that you don't understand now,
Before you ask some girl for her hand now
Keep your freedom for as long as you can now."

My mama told me, "You better shop around, (shop, shop)
Oh yeah, you better shop around." (shop, shop around)

Aha, got some things that I want you to know now.
Just as sure as the winds gonna blow now
The women come and the women gonna go now
Before you tell em that you love em so now.

My mama told me, "You better shop around, (shop, shop)
Oh yeah, you better shop around." (shop, shop around)

A try to get yourself a bargain son.
Don't be sold on the very first one.
A pretty girls come a dime a dozen,
A try to find one who's gonna give you true lovin'

Before you take a girl and say I do, now,
Make sure she's in love with-a you now.
My mama told me, "You better shop around."

[Instrumental]

Ooh yeah, you try to get yourself a bargain son.
Don't be sold on the very first one.
A pretty girls come a dime a dozen,
I gotta find one who's gonna give you true lovin'.

Before you take a girl and say I do, now,
Make sure she's in love with you now.
Make sure that her love is true now.
I hate to see you feelin' sad and blue now."

My mama told me, "You better shop around (shop, shop)
Aha, Don't let the first one get you
Oh no cause I don't want to see her with you
Aha, Before you let her hold you tight, ah yeah yeah make sure shes alright
Before you let her take your hand my son
Understand my son, be a man my son I know you can my son

YES.... SHOP AROUND. BUT WEAR A CONDOM.

Die Young by Sylvan Esso

I had it all planned that way before you met me
Was gonna leave early and so swiftly
Maybe in a fire or crash off a ravine
People would weep, "How tragic, so early"

I was gonna die young
Now I gotta wait for you, hun
Now I gotta wait for you, hun
Now I gotta wait for you, hun

I was a firecracker, baby, with something to prove
Now I gotta contend with the living blues
I could've missed it, and never knew
Chain reaction but you're holding the fuse

I was gonna die young
Now I gotta wait for you, hun
Now I gotta wait for you, hun (honey)
Now I gotta wait for you, hun

Oh, I don't mind
I got the fire
Electric life
So high, so wild
It's not like I chose
Not like I tried
But now I gotta wait around
And watch you burn so bright
I was gonna die

I had it all planned that way before you met me
I had a plan, you ruined it completely
I had it all planned that way before you met me
I had a plan, you ruined it completely

I was gonna die young
(I had it all planned that way before you met me)
Now I gotta wait for you, hun
(I had a plan, you ruined it completely)
Now I gotta wait for you, hun (honey)
(I had it all planned that way before you met me)
Now I gotta wait for you, hun
(I had a plan, you ruined it completely)

I was gonna die young (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Now I gotta wait for you, hun (I was gonna, I was gonna)
Now I gotta wait for you, hun (oh, oh)
Now I gotta wait for you, hun (oh yeah, yeah, yeah)

I had it all planned that way before you met me
I had a plan, you ruined it completely
I had it all planned that way before you met me
I had a plan, you ruined it completely

OKAY... NOT SURE WHAT THAT'S ALL ABOUT BUT MORE POWER TO EM

What's Going On? by Marvin Gaye

Mother, mother
There's too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother
There's far too many of you dying
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today - Ya

Father, father
We don't need to escalate
You see, war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin' here today

Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me, so you can see
Oh, what's going on
What's going on
Ya, what's going on
Ah, what's going on

In the mean time
Right on, baby
Right on
Right on

Mother, mother, everybody thinks we're wrong
Oh, but who are they to judge us
Simply because our hair is long
Oh, you know we've got to find a way
To bring some understanding here today
Oh

Picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me
So you can see
What's going on
Ya, what's going on
Tell me what's going on
I'll tell you what's going on - Uh
Right on baby
Right on baby

Achin' to Be by The Replacements

Well she's kind of like an artist
Sittin' on the floor
Never finishes, she abandons
Never shows a soul

And she's kind of like a movie
Everyone rushes to see
And no one understands it
Sittin' in their seats

She opens her mouth to speak and
What comes out's a mystery
Thought about, not understood
She's achin' to be

Well she dances alone in nightclubs
Every other day of the week
People look right through her
Baby doll, check your cheek

And she's kind of like a poet
Who finds it hard to speak
Poems come so slowly
Like the colors down a sheet

She opens her mouth to speak and
What comes out's a mystery
Thought about, not understood
She's achin' to be

I've been achin' for a while now, friend
I've been achin' hard for years

Well she's kind of like an artist
Who uses paints no more
You never show me what you're doing
Never show a soul

Well, I saw one of your pictures
There was nothin' that I could see
If no one's on your canvas
Well, I'm achin' to be

She closes her mouth to speak and
Closes her eyes to see
Thought about an' only loved
She's achin' to be
Just like me

THIS SOUNDS LIKE THE PLAY 'ART' WHERE A DUDE BUYS A BLANK CANVASS FOR A HUGE CHUCNK OF CHANGE BECAUSE THE 'ARTIST' CALLS IT 'ART'. HIS FRIENDS COME OVER AND ENLIGNTEN HIM ON WHAT A DUMB ASS HE IS. ACTUALLY, ONE THINKS HE'S A DUMB ASS AND THE OTHER TRIES TO UNDERSTAND THE ART. SO... I GUESS IT IS ART BECAUSE IT IS DOING EXACTLY WHAT GOOD ART SHOULD, GET PEOPLE THINKING, GET PEOPLE TALKING.

Brownsville Girl by Bob Dylan

Well there was this movie I seen one time
About a man riding across the desert and starred Gregory Peck
He was shot down by a hungry kid trying to make a name for himself
The town's people wanted to crush that kid down and string him up by the neck.

Well the Marshall now he beat that kid to a bloody pulp
As the dying gunfighter lay in the sun and gasped for his last breath
Turn him loose let him go let him say he outdrew me fair and square
I want him to feel what it's like to every moment face his death.

Well I keep seeing this stuff and it just comes a-rolling in
And you know it blows right through me like a ball and chain
You know I can't believe we've lived so long and are still so far apart
The memory of you keeps calling after me like a rolling train.

I can still see the day that you came to me on the pinked desert
In your busted down Ford and your platform heels
I could never figure out why you chose that particular place to meet
Ah, but you were right it was perfect as I got in behind the wheel.

Well we drove that car all night 'til we got into San Anton'
And we slept near the Alamo your skin was so tender and soft
Way down in Mexico you went out to find a doctor and you never came back
I would have gone on after you but I didn't feel like letting my head get blow off.

Well we're driving this car and the sun is coming up over the Rockies
Now I know she ain't you but she's here and she's got that dark rhythm in her soul
But I'm too over the edge and I ain't in the mood anymore to remember the times
when I was your only man
And she don't want to remind me. She knows this car would go out of control.

Brownsville girl with your Brownsville curls
Teeth like pearls shining like the moon above
Brownsville girl show me all around the world.
Brownsville girl you're my honey love.Well we crossed the panthandle and then we headed towards Amarillo
We pulled up where Henry Porter used to live. He owned a wrecking lot outside of
town about a mile
Ruby was in the backyard hanging clothes she had her red hair tied back. She saw us
come rolling up in a trail of dust
She said "Henry ain't here but you can come on in he'll be back in a little while".

Then she told us how times were tough and about how she was thinking of bumming
a ride back to where she started
But she changed the subject every time money came up
She said "Welcome to the land of the living dead". You could tell she was
so broken-hearted
She said "Even the swap meets around here are pretty corrupt".

"How far are you all going ?" Ruby asked us with a sigh
"We're going all the way until the wheels fall off and burn
Until the sun peels the paint and the seat covers fade and the water moccasin dies"
Ruby just smiled and said. "Ah you know some babies never learn".

Something about that movie though well I just can't get it out of my head
But I can't remember why I was in it or what part I was supposed to play
All I remember about it was Gregory Peck and the way people moved
And a lot of them seemed to be looking my way.

Brownsville girl with your Brownsville curls
Teeth like pearls shining like the moon above
Brownsville girl show me all around the world.
Brownsville girl you're my honey love.

Well they were looking for somebody with a pompadour
I was crossing the street when shots rang out
I didn't know whether to duck or to run so I ran
We got him cornered in the churchyard ? I heard somebody shout.

Well you saw my picture in the Corpus Christi Tribune. Underneath it it said:
"A man with no alibi"
You went out on a limb to testify for me you said I was with you
Then when I saw you break down in front of the judge and cry real tears
It was the best acting I saw anybody do.

Now I've always been the kind of person that doesn't like to trepass but sometimes
you just find yourself over the line
Oh if there's an original thought out there I could use it right now
You now I feel pretty good but that ain't saying much I could feel a whole lot better
If you were just here by my side to show me how.
Well I'm standing in line in the rain to see a movie starring Gregory Peck
Yeh but you know it's not the one I had in mind
He's got a new one out now I don't even know what it's about
But I'll se him in anything so I'll stand in line.

Brownsville girl with your Brownsville curls
Teeth like pearls shining like the moon above
Brownsville girl show me all around the world
Brownsville girl you're my honey love.

You know it's funny how things never turn out the way you had them planned
The only things we knew for sure about Henry Porter is that his name
wasn't Henry Porter
And you know there was something about you baby that I liked that was always too
good for this world
Just like you always said there was something about me you liked that I left behind
in the French Quarter.

Strange how people who suffer together have stronger connections than people who
are most content
I don't have any regrets they can talk about me plenty when I'm gone
You always said people don't do what they believe in they just do what's most
convenient then they repent
And I always said. "Hang on to me baby and let's hope that the roof stays on".

There was a movie I seen one time I think I sat through it twice
I don't remember who I was or where I was bound
All I remember about it was it starred Gregory Peck he wore a gun and he was shot
in the back
Seems like a long time ago long before the stars were torn down.

Brownsville girl with your Brownsville curls
Teeth like pearls shining like the moon above
Brownsville girl show me all around the world
Brownsville girl you're my honey love.

WELL... AS LAME AS BOB DYLAN THE PERSON CAN BE HIS WRITING FREQUENTLY SUPRISES. SAM SHEPARD CO-WROTE THIS WITH BOB. SAM YOU WILL BE MISSED.

Life to Save by Hurray for the Riff Raff

I'm gettin' heavy
I'm feelin' sad
Lost my good daddy
Best friend I ever had
Mmm-hmm
And it's getting lonely
Oh, at the bottom of a bottle
My mind gets full up on moonlight
The morning opens like a Bible
Mmm-hmm
Oh, I, still got a life to save
I still got a life to save
Well, I, still got a life to save
Life's funny that way
Oh, that way
Hey!
Ooh-ooh
Whoo-ooh-ooh-ooh
Hmm
Well, it's gettin' harder
I'll just-ah give up the past
Everyday a reminder
Just that nothing can last
And it's gettin' lonely
Way down at the bottom of a well
My baby, I've been lookin' for you
Oh honey, couldn't you tell?
Hell --
Oh, I, still got a life to save
Well, I, still got a life to save
I still got a life to save
Life's funny that way
That way --
That way --
That way

IF YOU ARE GOING TO SAVE A LIFE, SAY SOMEONE IS DROWNING, THROW THEM THAT LITTLE LIFE RING THINGY.... JUST MAKE SURE THE ROPE IS ON IT CUZ HOW ELSE ARE YOU GOING TO PULL THE DUDE IN?

Web in Front by Archers of Loaf



Stuck a pin in your backbone.
Spoke it down from there.
All I ever wanted was to be your spine.
Lost your friction and you slid for a mile.
Overdone, overdrive, overlive, override.

You're not the one who let me down,
But thanks for offering.
It's not a voice and I'm not around.
But thanks for picking it...

Up, on the radio.
Sampled your rust from a faucet, I know.
I've got a magnet in my head,
A magnet in my head.
Extra thick, extra long, the way it was wasted.

And there's a chance that things'll get weird.
Yeah, that's a possibility.
Although I didn't do anything,
No, I didn't do anything.

All I ever wanted,
All I ever wanted,
All I ever wanted was to be your spine.

(repeat)

And a mouth kept shut and a tongue twist tie.
You're the web in front, you're the favorite lie.
You're a buck my lip, you're a lash my lie.
You're the web in front of a favorite lie.

Stuck a pin in your backbone.
Spoke it down from there.
All I ever wanted was to be your spine.
I've got a magnet in my head, a magnet in my head.
Extra thick, extra long, the way it was wasted... wasted.

Heroes and Villans by The Beach Boys

I've been in this town so long that back in the city
I've been taken for lost and gone
And unknown for a long long time

Fell in love years ago
With an innocent girl
From the Spanish and Indian home
Home of the heroes and villains

Once at night Catillian squared the fight
And she was right in the rain of the bullets that eventually brought her down
But she's still dancing in the night
Unafraid of what a dude'll do in a town full of heroes and villains

Heroes and villains
Just see what you've done

Heroes and villains
Just see what you've done

Stand or fall I know there
Shall be peace in the valley
And it's all an affair
Of my life with the heroes and villains

My children were raised
You know they suddenly rise
They started slow long ago
Head to toe healthy weathy and wise

I've been in this town so long
So long to the city
I'm fit with the stuff
To ride in the rough
And sunny down snuff I'm alright
By the heroes and

Heroes and villains
Just see what you've done

Heroes and villains
Just see what you've done

TIME EATS ALL BRO... TIME EATS ALL...

King of a One Horse Town by Dan Auerbach

Everyday is just a little white lie
Telling myself I'm gettin' by
I just stay in this room and cry
The snow it covers up the ground
And I can't hear a single sound

I'd turn off the TV and go for a drive
But I can't see there's any signs of life
Except a Christmas tree with blinking lights
I coulda made it but I messed around
I'm a loser with a rusted crown
Scared if I jump in the ocean I might drown

King of a One Horse Town
I'm the King of a One Horse Town
And I barely pull my weight around

I thought about leaving but I don't know
Wouldn't even know anywhere to go
Guess I'll stay on desolation row
Go get stoned and hang around
The beat of my drum is the only sound
I would jump into the ocean but I'm scared I'd drown

King of a One Horse Town
I'm a King of a One Horse Town
I'm a King of a One Horse Town
And I barely pull my weight around

I'm a King of a One Horse Town
King of a One Horse Town
I'm a King of a One Horse Town
And I barely pull my weight around

THE ONE HORSE TOWN IN THE VID IS GRAND JUNCTION.

In The End by Linkin Park

It starts with one...
One thing I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time

All I know
Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away

It's so unreal
Didn't look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on did-didn't even know
I wasted it all just to watch you go

I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

One thing, I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try
Keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme
To remind myself how I tried so hard

I tried so hard
In spite of the way you were mocking me
Acting like I was part of your property
Remembering all the times you fought with me
I'm surprised it got so far
Far

Things aren't the way they were before
You wouldn't even recognize me anymore
Not that you knew me back then
But it all comes back to me in the end
In the end

You kept everything inside and even though I tried, it all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a time when I tried so hard

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

[2x]
I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
For all this
There's only one thing you should know

I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

GOOD BYE CHESTER... ROCK ON...

Walking on the Burining Coal by Gogal Bordello

I was walking on one cloudy morning
With uncertain shadow on my soul
Underneath the shadow there was yearning
To be done walking on the burning coal

I'm walking
Burning
Walking
I walking on the burning coal
I'm walking
Ain't it easier to fall

Leave behind scenarios made for you
And stay on a path to your own pole
Ain't no ordinary stroll
Gets the sailor knot in my chest undone

And the shadow
Feels the soul
Turned to ashes
Turned aerial
And you don't need no one to walk you through it
Through this would be world burial

I'm walking
Burning
Walking
I walking on the burning coal
Coal
Coal
Ain't it easier to

DUDE, DONT WALK ON BURNING COAL AND, GUESS WHAT? IT WONT HURT.

The Original Tap Dancing Kid by Jimmie Spheeris

my brother was a thunderbolt
the original tap dancing kid
I would have given anything
just to sing the way he did
he'd serenade the wayward girls
beneath the moon and the stars
sneak down by the water hole
smokin' one of dad's cigars
the girls were wild about him
Jenny even flipped her lid
my brother was a thunderbolt
the original tap dancing kid
he said he'd blaze a trail around the sun
and no one could hold him back
he'd shoot the rapids on the mighty river
and howl like Wolfman Jack
they give our boy a glad hand
they said "Son, what you gonna do?"
"I'm gonna roam my happy hunting grounds
In my funky pair of canvas shoes"
the girls were wild about him
Jenny even flipped her lid
my brother was a thunderbolt
the original tap dancing kid
now he's just a drifter
and he rides on the tail of the wind
every time I see the Jackson Five
well I always think of him
he says "Listen to me brother
Is there hope for a native son?"
well don't expect no fanfare kid
they only give it to you when you're young
the girls were wild about him
Jenny even flipped her lid
my brother was a thunderbolt
the original tap dancing kid

IT IS TRUE. THEY ONLY GIVE IT TO YOU WHEN YOU'RE YOUNG.

Game of Love by Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders

The purpose of a man is to love a woman,
And the purpose of a woman is to love a man,
So come on baby let's start today, come on baby let's play
The game of love, love, la la la la la love
It started long ago in the Garden of Eden
When Adam said to Eve, baby, you're for me
So come on baby let's start today, come on baby let's play
The game of love, love, la la la la la love
Come on baby 'cause the time is right
Love your daddy with all your might
Put your arms around me, hold me tight
Play the game of love
The purpose of a man is to love a woman,
And the purpose of a woman is to love a man,
So come on baby let's start today, come on baby let's play
The game of love, love, la la la la la love
The purpose of a man is to love a woman,
And the purpose of a woman is to love a man,
So come on baby let's start today, come on baby let's play
The game of love, love, la la la la la love
Come on baby 'cause the time is right
Love your daddy with all your might
Put your arms around me, hold me tight
Play the game of love
The game of love, (love), love, (love), la la la la la love
The game of love, (love), love, (love), la la la la la love
The game of love baby, the game of la la la la love
The game of love baby, the game of la la la la love

A Girl and His Cat by Biffy Clyro

I never have fun but I wouldn't say no
I guess that's my prerogative
I'll never give up and I'll never look down
That would be the end of it

Look at me now screaming up and down
With huge degrees of lethargy
Some may say that I'm lying down
That don't mean a fuck to me

I should remove you all, nothing ventured, nothing maimed
Hang on your suffering wall to decompose and rearrange
Sit tight with your lonely rose, beauty is the death of pain
Don't see it coming at all, so we control and we contain

This is what you wanted to be
This is what you wanted

This is your house, this is not your home
I don't know if we're ever gonna belong
You can build a house but not a home
It will always stand on shaky ground

I wanna play dumb but I can't let go
Of my responsibilities
Why have one? You can take all ten
I bet that's not enough for you

I should remove you all, nothing ventured, nothing maimed
Hang on your suffering wall to decompose and rearrange

This is what you wanted to be
This is what you wanted

This is your house, this is not your home
I don't know if we're ever gonna belong
You can build a house but not a home
It will always stand on shaky ground

We are looking for love
But you're baying for blood
[x2]

This is what you wanted to be
This is what you wanted

THIS SONG CAPTURE MY EXPERIENCE OF GROWING OLDER. JUST KEEP MOVING. DONT LOOK DOWN.

Radioactive by Imagine Dragons

Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa, oh, oh
Whoa

I'm waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I'm breathing in the chemicals
[Inhale, exhale]

I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa oh

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my system blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I'm radioactive, radioactive

I raise my flag and dye my clothes
It's a revolution, I suppose
We're painted red to fit right in
Whoa oh

I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out on the prison bus
This is it, the apocalypse
Whoa oh

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my system blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I'm radioactive, radioactive

All systems go, the sun hasn't died
Deep in my bones, straight from inside

I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones
Enough to make my system blow
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Welcome to the new age, to the new age
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I'm radioactive, radioactive
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I'm radioactive, radioactive

SO THATS WHERE LOU DIAMOND PHILLIPS GOT TO. MUPPET FIGHTING.

Interplanet Janet by Schoolhouse Rock

They say our solar system is centered 'round the sun,
Nine planets, large and small, parading by.
But somewhere out in space,
There's another shining face
That you might see some night up in the sky. Interplanet Janet, she's a galaxy girl,
A solar system Ms. from a future world,
She travels like a rocket with her comet team
And there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen,
No, there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen. She's been to the Sun, it's a lot of fun,
It's a hot-spot, It's a gas!
Hydrogen and helium in a big, bright, glowing mass. It's a star, it's a star! So Janet got an autograph! Mercury was near the Sun so Janet stopped by,
But the mercury on Mercury was much too high, so
Janet split for Venus but on Venus she found
She couldn't see a thing for all the clouds around.
Earth looked exciting, kind of green and inviting,
So Janet thought she'd give it a go.
But the creatures on that planet looked so very weird to Janet,
She didn't even dare to say hello. It's a bird, it's a plane! Why, it must be a UFO, but it was:
Interplanet Janet, she's a galaxy girl,
A solar system Ms. from a future world,
She travels like a rocket with her comet team
And there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen,
No, there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen. Mars is red and Jupiter's big
And Saturn shows off its rings.
Uranus is built on a funny tilt
And Neptune is its twin,
And Pluto, little Pluto, is the farthest planet from our Sun. They say our solar system is not alone in space.
The Universe has endless mystery.
Some future astronaut
May find out that what he'd thought
Was a shooting star instead turned out to be... Interplanet Janet, she's a galaxy girl,
A solar system Ms. from a future world,
She travels like a rocket with her comet team
And there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen,
No, there's never been a planet Janet hasn't seen.

AS DOUGLAS ADAMS WROTE.. I THINK... THERE IS A BIG SIGN OUT IN SPACE SOMEWHERE ON THE APPROACH TO EARTH THAT SAYS 'KEEP AWAY'. NOW THAT WE HAVE BAT SHIT IN THE WHITE HOUSE IT IS EVEN MORE TRUE THAN IT WAS IN 1977.

Gonna Hurry as Slow as I Can by Whitney

You found someone else
And you're sending me away
Oh, I hate so badly but I know
I know I can't stay

You tell me I must go
And I'll try to understand
'Cause I'm gonna leave you
I'm gonna hurry
Just, just as slow as I can

But I'm gonna cry, cry myself to death
Crying, crying over you
Well I feel sorry, so sorry for myself
But I've got to leave, I know it's true

That little ring you gave to me
I took it, took it from my hands
'Cause I'm gonna leave you
And I'm gonna hurry
Just, just as slow as I can

I THOUGHT THIS SONG WAS ABOUT MY KIDS DOING THEIR CHORS BUT IT IS JUST ANOTHER LOVE SONG

When That Great Ship Went Down by Woody Guthrie

It was sad when that great ship went down
Sad when that great ship went down
The cold ocean floor will now be your home
Sad when that great ship went down
It was sad when that great ship went down
Sad when that great ship went down
The cold ocean floor will now be your home
Sad when that great ship went down
It was sad when that great ship went down
Sad when that great ship went down
The cold ocean floor will now be your home
Sad when that great ship went down
It was sad when that great ship went down
Sad when that great ship went down
The cold
It was sad when that great ship went down
Sad when that great ship went down
The cold ocean floor will now be your home
It was sad when that great ship went down
It was sad when that great ship went down
Sad when that great ship went down
The cold ocean floor will now be your home
It was sad when that great ship went down

Gotta Catch 'em All by Jason Paige

I wanna be the very best,
Like no one ever was.
To catch them all is my real test,
To train them is my cause,

I will travel across the land,
Searching far and wide.
Teach Pokemon to understand
The power that's inside!

Pokemon, (gotta catch them all) its you and me
I know its my destiny
Pokemon, oh, you're my best friend
In a world we must defend

Pokemon, (gotta catch them all) a heart so true
Our courage will pull us through
You teach me and I'll teach you
(Po-ke-mon) Gotta catch 'em all

Yeah!

Every challenge along the way
With courage I will face
I will battle every day
To claim my rightful place,

Come with me, the time is right
There's no better team
Arm in arm we'll win the fight
It's always been our dream!

Pokemon!

(Gotta catch 'em all)

It's you and me
I know it's my destiny

Pokemon!

Oh, you're my best friend,
In a world we must defend.

Pokemon!

A heart so true.
Our courage will pull us through.
You teach me and I'll teach you,

Pokemon!

Gotta catch 'em all
Gotta catch 'em all
Gotta catch 'em all
Gotta catch 'em all
Gotta catch 'em all



Yeah!

Pokemon!

It's you and me
I know it's my destiny!

Oh, you're my best friend!
In a world we must defend.

Pokemon!

A heart so true.
Our courage will pull us through.
You teach me and I'll teach you,

POKEMON!

Gotta catch them all!
Gotta catch them all!


POKEMON FILLS ME WITH LOVE. I LOVE THOSE LITTLE GUYS WHO SAY NOTHING BUT THIER NAMES. I LOVE LOVE THOSE CHARACTERS WHO ALL HAVE HIGH PITCHED VOICES. I LOVE IT THAT THEY SHOUT EVERY LINE THEY SAY. I ALSO LOVE HOW THEIR BIG MOUTHS MOVE TOTALLY OUT OF SYNCH. I LOVE IT! ZIAH IS LOOKING OVER MY SHOULDER.

Liar Liar GE2017 by Captain Ska

"We have a mission to make Britain a country that works, not for the privileged and not for the few, but for every one of our citizens. And together we, the Conservative Party, can build a better Britain...'

[Chorus]
She's a liar liar (Oh)
She's a liar liar (No)
You can't trust her
No no no no
She's a liar liar (Oh)
She's a liar liar (No)
You can't trust her
No no no no

[Verse 1]
We all know politicians like telling lies
Big ones, little ones, porky pies
Saying they're strong and stable won't disguise
We're still being taken for a ride
With nurses going hungry
Schools in decline
I don't recognise this broken country of mine
They're having a laugh
Let's show them the door
Then cut the rich, not the poor

[Bridge: Theresa May sample]
"I've been very clear that I think we need that period of time, that stability, to be able to deal with the issues that the country is facing. I'm not going to be calling a snap election."

[Chorus]
She's a liar liar (Oh)
She's a liar liar (No)
You can't trust her
No no no no
She's a liar liar (Oh)
She's a liar liar (No)
You can't trust her
No no no no

[Verse 2]
I want to have a government that
Doesn't think that fascism is where it's at
Cos putting the Mother of all Bombs
Into tiny hands can go very wrong
I'm hoping for a future for my child
Where she can grow, and feel inspired
Do everything in your power you can
People rising up is the only plan

[Bridge 2: Theresa May sample]
"When future generations look back at this time, they will judge us not only by the decision that we made, but by what we made of that decision. They will see that we shaped them a brighter future. They will know that we built them a better Britain."

[Chorus]
She's a liar liar (Oh)
She's a liar liar (No)
You can't trust her
No no no no
She's a liar liar (Oh)
She's a liar liar (No)
You can't trust her
No no no no
She's a liar liar (Oh)
She's a liar liar (No)
You can't trust her
No no no no
She's a liar liar (Oh)
She's a liar liar (No)
You can't trust her
No no no no

I Love to Love by Tina Charles

Oh I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance
He wants to dance, He loves to dance, He's got to dance
Oh I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance
Oh I love to love
But there's no time for our romance
No no no oh
I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance
The minute the band begins to swing it
He's on his feet to dig it
And dance the night away
Stop I'm spinning like a top
We'll dance until we drop
But if I had my way
Oh I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance
He wants to dance, He loves to dance, He's got to dance
Oh I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance
Oh I love to love
But he can give our love a chance
No no no oh
Oh I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance
Stop I'm spinning like a top
We'll dance until we drop
But if
Stop I'm spinning like a top
We'll dance until we drop
But if I had my way
Sundown instead of going downtown
We'll stay at home and get down
To what I'm tryin' to say
I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance yes he does
I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance, yes he does
I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance yes he does
I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance yes he does
I love to love
But my baby just loves to dance yes he does

Getting Better by The Beatles

I used to get mad at my school (No I can't complain)
The teachers who taught me weren't cool (No I can't complain)
You're holding me down (Oh), turning me round (Oh)
Filling me up with your rules (Foolish rules)

I've got to admit it's getting better (Better)
A little better all the time (It can't get more worse)
I have to admit it's getting better (Better)
It's getting better since you've been mine

Me used to be angry young man
Me hiding me head in the sand
You gave me the word, I finally heard
I'm doing the best that I can

I've got to admit it's getting better (Better)
A little better all the time (It can't get more worse)
I have to admit it's getting better (Better)
It's getting better since you've been mine
Getting so much better all the time
It's getting better all the time
Better, better, better
It's getting better all the time
Better, better, better

I used to be cruel to my woman
I beat her and kept her apart from the things that she loved
Man I was mean but I'm changing my scene
And I'm doing the best that I can (Ooh)

I admit it's getting better (Better)
A little better all the time (It can't get more worse)
Yes I admit it's getting better (Better)
It's getting better since you've been mine
Getting so much better all the time
It's getting better all the time
Better, better, better
It's getting better all the time
Better, better, better
Getting so much better all the time

Way Down in the Hole by Tom Waits



When you walk through the garden
you gotta watch your back
well I beg your pardon
walk the straight and narrow track
if you walk with Jesus
he's gonna save your soul
you gotta keep the devil
way down in the hole
he's got the fire and the fury
at his command
well you don't have to worry
if you hold on to Jesus hand
we'll all be safe from Satan
when the thunder rolls
just gotta help me keep the devil
way down in the hole
All the angels sing about Jesus' mighty sword
and they'll shield you with their wings
and keep you close to the lord
don't pay heed to temptation
for his hands are so cold
you gotta help me keep the devil
way down in the hole

IN HONOR OF TOMORROWS COLONOSCOPY

We Got to Have Peace by Curtis Mayfield

We got have peace
To keep the world alive
And war to cease

We got to have joy,
True in our hearts
With strength we can't destroy

People please hear us (people please hear us)
Through our voice the world knows
There's no choice

We're begging save the children
The little ones
Who just don't understand

Give them a chance
To breed their young
And help purify the land

People please hear us (people please hear us)
Through our voice the world knows
There's no choice

And the people in the neighbourhood,
Who would if they only could,
Meet and shake the other's hand,
Work together for the good of the land

Give us all an equal chance,
It could be such a sweet romance
And the soldiers who are dead and gone,
If only we could bring back one,

He'd say "We've got to have peace"
To keep the world alive
And war to cease

We got to have joy
Ture in our hearts
With strength we can't destroy

People please hear us (people please hear us)
Through our voice the world knows
There's no choice

And the people in the neighbourhood
Who would if they only could
Meet and shake the other's hand
Work together for the good of the land

Give us all an equal chance
It could be such a sweet romance
And the soldiers who are dead and gone
If only we could bring back one

He'd say "We've got to have peace"
Aah - hah, we got to have peace
Let let the world know it

Peace, peace, peace
Aah - hah, we got to have peace

People please hear us (people please hear us)
Through our voice the world knows
There's no choice

Save the children

Save the children

Save the children

And the people in the neighbourhood
Who would if they only could
Meet and shake the other's hand
Work together for the good of the land

Give us all an equal chance
It could be such a sweet romance
And the soldiers who are dead and gone
If only we could bring back one

He'd say "We've got to have peace"
Lo - rd, we got to have peace

Let the people say it

Peace peace peace
Aah - hah, we got to have peace

MAN, THIS DUDE REALLY LIKES PEAS.

Palaces of Montezuma by Grinderman

Psychedelic invocations
Of Mata Hari at the station
I give to you
A Javan princess of Hindu Birth
A woman of flesh, a child of earth
I give to you
The hanging gardens of Babylon
Miles Davis, the black unicorn
I give to you
The palaces of Montezuma
And the gardens of Akbar's tomb
I give to you
The Spider Goddess and the Needle Boy
The slave-dwarves they employ
I give to you
A custard-coloured super-dream
Of Ali McGraw and Steve McQueen
I give to you

C'mon baby, let's get out of the cold
And gimme, gimmme, gimme your precious love for me to hold

The epic of Gilgamesh
A pretty little black A-line dress
I give to you
The spinal cord of JFK
Wrapped in Marilyn Monroe's negligee
I give to you
I want nothing in return
Just the softest little breathless word
I ask of you
A word contained in a grain of sand
That can barely walk, can't even stand
I ask of you

C'mon baby, let's get out of the cold
And gimme, gimme, gimme your precious love for me to hold
C'mon baby, come out of the cold
And gimme, gimme, gimme your precious love for me to hold

WHEN SOMEONE GIVES YOU THIER LOVE IT IS INDEED LIKE COMING OUT OF THE COLD. THE FIRST TIME I REALIZED S. LOVED ME WAS LIKE A BLAST OF WARM AIR THAT OVERCAME ME AND I SIMULTANIOUSLY REALIZED I LOVED HER BACK.

Spoonman by Soundgarden

Feel the rhythm with your hands
Steal the rhythm while you can, spoonman
Speak the rhythm on your own
Speak the rhythm all alone, spoonman

Spoonman, come together with your hands
Save me, I'm together with your plan
Save me

All my friends are Indians
All my friends are brown and red, spoonman
All my friends are skeletons
They beat the rhythm with their bones, spoonman

Feel the rhythm with your hands
Steal the rhythm while you can, spoonman

Thank you, good night people

THEY ARE ALL DYING...

Losing My Edge by LCD Soundsystem

Yeah, I'm losing my edge.
I'm losing my edge.
The kids are coming up from behind.
I'm losing my edge.
I'm losing my edge to the kids from France and from London.
But I was there.

I was there in 1968.
I was there at the first Can show in Cologne.
I'm losing my edge.
I'm losing my edge to the kids whose footsteps I hear when they get on the decks.
I'm losing my edge to the Internet seekers who can tell me every member of every good group from 1962 to 1978.
I'm losing my edge.

To all the kids in Tokyo and Berlin.
I'm losing my edge to the art-school Brooklynites in little jackets and borrowed nostalgia for the unremembered eighties.

But I'm losing my edge.
I'm losing my edge, but I was there.
I was there.
But I was there.

I'm losing my edge.
I'm losing my edge.
I can hear the footsteps every night on the decks.
But I was there.
I was there in 1974 at the first Suicide practices in a loft in New York City.
I was working on the organ sounds with much patience.
I was there when Captain Beefheart started up his first band.
I told him, "Don't do it that way. You'll never make a dime."
I was there.
I was the first guy playing Daft Punk to the rock kids.
I played it at CBGB's.
Everybody thought I was crazy.
We all know.
I was there.
I was there.
I've never been wrong.

I used to work in the record store.
I had everything before anyone.
I was there in the Paradise Garage DJ booth with Larry Levan.
I was there in Jamaica during the great sound clashes.
I woke up naked on the beach in Ibiza in 1988.

But I'm losing my edge to better-looking people with better ideas and more talent.
And they're actually really, really nice.

I'm losing my edge.

I heard you have a compilation of every good song ever done by anybody.
Every great song by the Beach Boys. All the underground hits.
All the Modern Lovers tracks. I heard you have a vinyl of every Niagra record on German import.
I heard that you have a white label of every seminal Detroit techno hit - 1985, '86, '87.
I heard that you have a CD compilation of every good '60s cut and another box set from the '70s.

I hear you're buying a synthesizer and an arpeggiator and are throwing your computer out the window because you want to make something real. You want to make a Yaz record.

I hear that you and your band have sold your guitars and bought turntables.
I hear that you and your band have sold your turntables and bought guitars.

I hear everybody that you know is more relevant than everybody that I know.

But have you seen my records? This Heat, Pere Ubu, Outsiders, Nation of Ulysses, Mars, The Trojans, The Black Dice, Todd Terry, the Germs, Section 25, Althea and Donna, Sexual Harrassment, a-ha, Pere Ubu, Dorothy Ashby, PIL, the Fania All-Stars, the Bar-Kays, the Human League, the Normal, Lou Reed, Scott Walker, Monks, Niagra,
Joy Division, Lower 48, the Association, Sun Ra,
Scientists, Royal Trux, 10cc,

Eric B. and Rakim, Index, Basic Channel, Soulsonic Force ("just hit me"!), Juan Atkins, David Axelrod, Electric Prunes, Gil! Scott! Heron!, the Slits, Faust, Mantronix, Pharaoh Sanders and the Fire Engines, the Swans, the Soft Cell, the Sonics, the Sonics, the Sonics, the Sonics.

You don't know what you really want. [x15]

OKAY, TO BEGIN WITH THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST VIDEOS I HAVE EVER SEEN. IT PERFECTLY CAPTURES GETTING OLDER AND... WELL LOSING YOUR EDGE... LOSING YOUR CREATIVITY. THE LYRICS ARE SO AWSOME.

A Good Man is Hard to Find by Bessie Smith

My heart is sad and I am all alorn,
my man's treating me mean
I regret the day that I was born
and that man of mine I've ever seen
Happiness, it never lasts a day,
my heart is almost breaking while I say

A good man is hard to find,
you always get the other kind
Just when you think that he is your pal,
you look for him & find him fooling 'round some other gal

Then you rave, you even crave
to see him laying in his grave
So, if your man is nice,
take my advice and hug him in the morning, kiss him ev'ry night,
give him plenty lovin',
treat him right
For a good man nowadays is hard to find,
a good man nowadays is hard to find.

YOU COULD ALSO SAY A HARD MAN IS GOOD TO FIND.

Deamons by Imagine Dragons

When the days are cold
And the cards all fold
And the saints we see
Are all made of gold

When your dreams all fail
And the ones we hail
Are the worst of all
And the blood's run stale

I wanna hide the truth
I wanna shelter you
But with the beast inside
There's nowhere we can hide

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide
Don't get too close
It's dark inside
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide

At the curtain's call
It's the last of all
When the lights fade out
All the sinners crawl

So they dug your grave
And the masquerade
Will come calling out
At the mess you made

Don't wanna let you down
But I am hell bound
Though this is all for you
Don't wanna hide the truth

No matter what we breed
We still are made of greed
This is my kingdom come
This is my kingdom come

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide
Don't get too close
It's dark inside
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide

They say it's what you make
I say it's up to fate
It's woven in my soul
I need to let you go

Your eyes, they shine so bright
I wanna save that light
I can't escape this now
Unless you show me how

When you feel my heat
Look into my eyes
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide
Don't get too close
It's dark inside
It's where my demons hide
It's where my demons hide
