"Brazil" as written by and Ary Barroso....
It's true darling, I'll walk you home
I'll be your date forever
I love you girl, yes I love you
Until they split the atom

So many times, there's nothing left
There's nothing left at all
I know I'm right, 'cause when I'm gone
There's nothing left at all

Left-right, left-right
Left-right, left-right
Left-right, left-right, halt!

    My InterpretationA song with curious (cognitive) dissonance between its title (derived from its almost Latin beat) and its lyric, which seems a rather dismissive jab at teenage love songs, specifically those played by many of their punk contemporaries, and especially The Ramones. To emphasise said underlying point, they use the same kind of extravagant metaphors ("until they split the atom" being redolent of "Today Your Heart, Tomorrow The World"), but to far more sardonic effect - "they're's nothing left at all". To top things off, they parody the militaristic obsessions of many other punks with a final march and salute.

    There you have it: Essential meta-punk in under forty-two seconds.
