"Great DJ" as written by and Julian/white De Martino....
Fed up with your indigestion.
Swallow words one by one.
Your folks got high at a quarter to five.
Don't you feel your growing up undone.

Nothing but the local DJ.
He said he had some songs to play.
What went down from his fooling around.
Gave hope and a brand new day.

Imagine all the girls,
Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
And the boys,
Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
And the strings,
Eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee.

And the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums.

Nothing was the same again.
All about where and when.
Blowing our minds in our life unkind.
Gotta love the bpm.
When the smoke was all baton
Remember how this begun.
We wore his love like a hand in a glove.
Where the future plays it all night long.

Imagine all the girls,
Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
And the boys,
Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
And the strings,
Eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee.

And the drums [Repeat x19]

Imagine all the girls,
Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
And the boys,
Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
And the strings,
Eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee.

And the drums,
Ah ah ah ah, ah, ah, ah, oh.

Imagine all the girls,
Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
And the boys,
Ah ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah.
And the strings,
Eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee, eee.

And the drums, the drums, the drums, the drums

    My InterpretationIt's been discussed and agreed upon here that the lyrics aren't meaningful in itself. The real meaning of the song though comes through the band's performance and the music/beat.

    The first part of the first verse describes the boredom ("Folks got high at a quarter to five") and depression ("Don't you feel you're growing up undone?") that comes with the grind of everyday life. Then, when a local DJ starts to play his up-beat mixes and such, the world becomes alive and "Gave hope and a brand new day".

    The second verse goes on to describe how life has changed because of the DJ and his beats. The change is positive and the DJ's love fits unto the public. The part that really struck out to me was "Nothing was the same again / All about where and when". Along with the band's performance of these vocals, it seems to tell of how everyone seemed to come back to life.

    Ultimately, the song is about how one great song, DJ, remix, movie, or any work of art for that matter can make the world a livelier place.

    General Commentthis song is about growing up in manchester. (i'm from manchester, so is the band) the dj played this at the star & garter on friday night and we all danced madly. living a depressing life where u cant really do much and u are forced to grow up fast due to bad parenting. then u start listening to cool music and going to cool clubs and u have new direction in ur life and its all good again!
    haha i make manchester sound so bad. its not... its great... really!
