Speaking: This one's for all the little guys who are tired of being pushed down so stand up, pump your fists, and shout out this anthem.

There you go again,
Pushing the little guys around,
Because you can't handle someone your own size,
Step up to me,
And try to last more than one round!

Yo why you pick on someone smaller than you,
Take on someone who can fight back,
I was the little kid that got pushed around,
Now its my turn to stand up,
For thouse who are in my old shoes,
You can't take it (can ya?)
Didn't think so,
Cause you're just a big bully,
Got problems at home,
So you take it out on someone smaller,
What if I slapped you around and made you feel defenseless too?


Smell that,
Its fear in the air,
Because you know you can't take a dose of your own medicine,
When the guns turned on you,
You hide in the corner and cry,
So why put someone else through hell,
IF you can't take it yourself,
Huh, what's the problem,
I know what it is,
You feel weak and unstable,
SO you make little kids cry,
And steal away their happiness and replace it with a fear,
Well stand up to me,
Let's see what you got.


Its not so funny now that you're on the recieving end of the punches,
Whats the matter now.
You can dish it out but can't take a hit of your own shit,
Wipe away your tears you lil bitch,
If you can't stand up to me,
Why stand over little Johnny,
Do you know what he's living with,
Then back off these little kids,
Before I have to put you through the same hell,
Day in and day out.

Chorus x 2

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.

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/

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
