Alright, ooh yeah
Are you ready to rock, I'm talking about satisfaction
So let's cut the talk, yeah, and get on with the action
Better make up your mind, girl, 'cause it´s now or never
It's getting down to the night, yeah, and I ain't waiting forever

She's alright, cause she's all I got tonight
She's alright, and she's eager to please
Down on your knees, this is love in the first degree
Down on your knees, and tonight the lovin's on me

Are you ready to rock, babe, she saw me coming for miles
So let me see what you got
Cause darling, you'll be driving me wild
Better make up your mind, girl, cause its now or never
It's getting down to the night, girl, and I ain't waiting forever
I ain't waiting, girl

She's alright, cause she's all I got tonight
She's alright, and she's eager to please
Down on your knees, this is love in the first degree
Down on your knees, and tonight the lovin's on me

Get down
Now that you got me real worked up
What you gonna do with me
Now that you got me really hot
I'm easy to please

Down on your knees, it's this love in the first degree
Down on your knees, yeah tonight the lovin's on me
Down on your knees, this is love in the first degree
Down on your knees, yeah tonight the lovin's on me
I'm down on my knees, this is love in the first degree
I'm down on my knees, yeah tonight the lovin's on me
Down on my knees, this is love in the first degree
Down on my knees

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

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.

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”
