we'll use the latest sciences
to make your world a better place
icicles and SRI's
take the edge
and send those blues away

it's a beautiful day
in my neighbourhood
come what may

supernatural fairy tale
they told you when you were at school
god was good and boys were boys
and men never went to the moon

but that's cool
Aerosmith rule
to earth with love
from the kids up above

come on
let's get it on
to earth with love
from the kids up above

hills I cannot climb
(cause I haven't got the time)
things I've never seen
(in a while in a while)

living in my head
(in my head in my head)
better look out world
cos nothing's gonna bring me down

come on
let's get it on
put your platforms on
we can dance ?til dawn
I'm doing fine
living here in my mind
it's just a matter of time
before I feel OK

hills I cannot climb
(cause I haven't got the time)
things I've never seen
(in a while in a while)
living in my head
(in my head in my head)
better look out world
cause nothing's gonna bring me down

come on
let's get it on
won't you put the Kraftwerk on
(put the Kraftwerk on)

well come on...
to earth with love

let's ask the family
is there anything left to love?

    It's about the redemptive power of rock'n'roll. Gay Dad had the perfect career trajectory. two utterly amazing singles, then they disappeared for ever.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran
