"LA Song" as written by and David Greenwalt....
Pretty girl on every corner
Sunshine turns the sky to gold
Warm warm, it's always warm here
I can't take the cold

Streets littered with diamonds
Every one's glistening
This whole world shines so brightly
I can't see a thing

She's pretty as a picture
She is like a golden ring
Circles me with love and laughter
I can't feel a thing

The sky's gonna open
People gonna pray and crawl
It's gonna rain down fire
It's gonna burn us all

The sky's gonna open
People gonna pray and sing
I can't feel a thing

She's pretty as a picture
She is like a golden ring
Cirlces me with love and laughter
And I can't feel a thing

The sky's gonna open
People gonna pray and crawl
It's gonna rain down fire
It's gonna burn us all

The sky's gonna open
People gonna pray and sing
I can't feel a thing

Oh, I can't feel.

    General CommentThis is pretty good, written by David Greenwalt and performed by Christian Kane in season 2 of Angel.

    The song itself is about being disconnected from life and just a feeling of utter despair.

    But! In context of the show, this song is a premonition and EVERYBODY misses it. Not to spoil anything but listen to this song then watch season four of Angel, it'll all make sense.

    That describes Angel's relationship with Cordy, he can't be loved or he'll turn evil.

    "The sky's gonna open
    People gonna pray and crawl
    It's gonna rain down fire
    It's gonna burn us all"

    The Annual Apocalypse, specifically when the Beast blocked out the sun. Or, when the "sky opened" and Jasmine descended, and everyone was "burned" as a result. Or possibly the final episode, when the sky really did open and thousands of demons descended.

    General CommentI love this song... I don't care if it is about Angel or not... I think this music has a great feeling and if you feel the music... It touches you deeply...

    TIP: If you play an acoustic guitar... learn this music... is really easy and will give you a lot of pleasure to play... It's amazing... there're no words to describe what you feel by playing and singing this song!

    General Commentfranck5p i learned guitar just for this song.

    by the way the official meaning of this song is about Lindsays life in LA. But I take it to mean something else: not being able to feel love when you are surrounded by it. Being so emotionally down that all the good things pass you by. "Sky's gonna open, people gonna pray and sing, I can't feel a thing" is Lindsay so numb, so outwith his life he no longer feels love,hate,or happiness in his life. he feels nothing. He probably has Eve at this point but with Darla being ripped from him, being at a moral crossroads and having to battle an evil hand he just stops caring.

    General CommentI think Its about how he knows the profecy and that the world is gonna end, but he doesnt really care, he has no feelings anymore. You can see in the whole show he wants to be good and struggles with it but is not capable of true feelings.
