took no notice of you until
I got to know you when I was home ill
I had the measles whilst you had a tan
You scanned the Autocue with sincere mind
Edam anchorman
You live in disgrace with a plastic face
Edam anchorman
Just taking the can from the staff around the van
Edam anchorman
Edam anchorman

I bought a dagger and a picture of you
For fourteen dollars and ninety-two (cents)
Revenge for all those unanswered calls (just remember)
I can see you but you can't see me

Edam anchorman
You live in disgrace with a plastic face
Edam anchorman
Glowing in beige on the national stage
Edam anchorman
Edam anchorman

We'll only be there for you
We know all the shit you do
Aaah! Aaah!
Edam, edam

Such a sinister bloke came in
On the telephone, oh oh
Aaah! Aaah!
Edam, edam

Edam anchorman
You live in disgrace with a plastic face
Edam anchorman
Just taking the can from the staff around the van
Edam anchorman
Edam anchor
Edam anchorman

    I've been wondering about this song. I know it is meant to be funny but I was wondering if it was based off a Dutch newsman. Does anyone know? My Dutch teacher at my school has a brother who was a very handsome anchorman there and, of course, I am dying to know if this song could have been inspired by him because he was a real 'pretty boy' type and would fit the song. But I think news stations are out of the city of Hilversom, not Edam but then, Edam would work better in a song, less syllables. Anybody know anything?

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”

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
