["A" - Anita]
["are" - Ray]

[A:] Check, check. check, check it out yo'll
[R:] Come on yo'll
[A:] I want you to, I want you to
I want you to turn on the groove

You guys are un..un..unbelievable

[R:] The feeling is fine you throw down the line
The beat, the lyrics are to combined
Tonight tonight is mean't to be wild
Doing it to a level that feels alright
'Cause we're the ones yes the dancefloor fillers
Don't like crime, don't like killers
Come on over what you trying to fool
Nothing alright then throw down the groove

[A:] Throw the groove the down
Spining round and round
We race them, we gotta pump, we can't can't get loose
Throw the groove down
Spining round and round
We turn it up, not gonna stop
Just throw down the groove

[R:] You know that the best things in life are free
But if you don't make sure that you get a receipt
Like my man Bob Marley said 'Stand Up For Right'
Don't give the fight if you help me almight
I think there's no time for no childs' play
In the playground or perhaps another day
'Cause I in effect 'cause I coming in smooth
In other words throw down the groove

[A:] Throw the groove the down
Spining round and round
We race them, we gotta pump, we can't can't get loose
Throw the groove down
Spining round and round
We turn it up, not gonna stop
Just throw down the groove

[A:] Spinning round and round
Come on yo'll
Ho....! Throw the groove down
[R:] Come on yo'll

[A:] Hay.... Come , come, come, come on yo'll

[A:] Throw the groove down

[Repeat and fade]

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Sunglasses at Night
Corey Hart
In the 1980s, sunglasses were a common fashion for people who wanted to adopt a "tough guy" persona (note all the cop shows from that era -- Simon & Simon, Miami Vice, etc. -- where the lead characters wore shades). So I think this song is about a guy who wears shades as a way of hiding his insecurity after learning that his girlfriend is cheating on him. He's trying to pretend that he's a "tough guy" to hide the fact that his girlfriend's affair is disturbing him.

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.

Mad Hatter
Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
