Okkervil River – Plus Ones Lyrics 11 years ago
Ah, yeah, the Byrds one was just something I forgot to type, but I overlooked the Jones reference. Though in my defense, it's not a "plus one" so to say.

Just a correction on a few of the lyrics...

The song is called "Plus Ones" because it references several songs with numerical titles, except with one added number ("plus ones").

Therefore:

"100th left balloon" should be "100th luftballon," in reference to Nina's "99 Luftballons"

"TBC 1-6" should be "TVC16," in reference to David Bowie's "TVC15"

"(Cindy?) first when you leave your lover" should be "Fifty-first way to leave your lover," in reference to Paul Simon's "50 Ways To Leave Your Lover"

"lighting candles, 17" should be "lighting candle 17," in reference to Roy Orbison's "16 Candles"

That's all I've got as far as corrections go. As far as I know, these are the other songs that are referenced:

? and the Mysterians - 96 Tears
R.E.M. - 7 Chinese Brothers
The Zombies - Care of Cell 44
The Commodores - Three Times a Lady

I can only hope the title of this song is an homage to the band My Bloody Valentine so Good Charlotte will have at least one redeeming trait...

Ryan Adams – Hotel Chelsea Nights Lyrics 13 years ago
I love this song, but I can't help but notice how incredibly similar it is to Prince's Purple Rain. What's going on?

I'm probably off, but Billy's quote might have to do with that in spiritual growth, you need pain. And if you don't have any pain in your life, there's no point.
