The weekend comes to this town
Seven days too soon
For the ones who have to make up
What we break up of their rules

Well I saw Captain Kidd on Sunset
Tell his boys they're in command
While Chino danced a tango
With a broomstick in his hand
He said it's alright (alright) if you have a good time
It's alright (alright) if you want to cross that line
To break on through to the other side

Let it rock (let it rock) let it go (let it go)
You can't stop a fire burning out of control
Let it rock (let it rock) let it go (let it go)
With the night you're on the loose
You got to let it rock

(Oh oh oh)
(Oh oh oh)

We go down to the Broadway
Where everybody goes
To get on their rockin' horse
And blast that radio
Well I saw Roxie on the table
Her girlfriend down below
They'll give it to the king of swing
Before it's time to go

It's alright (alright) if you have a good time
It's alright (alright) if you want to cross that line
To break on through to the other side

Let it rock (let it rock) let it go (let it go)
You can't stop a fire burning out of control
Let it rock (let it rock) let it go (let it go)
You can't stop a fire burning out of control
Let it rock (let it rock) let it go (let it go)
With the night you're on the loose
Let it rock

Let it rock
Let it rock (let it rock) let it go (let it go)
You can't stop a fire burning out of control
Let it rock (let it rock) let it go (let it go)
With the night you're on the loose, everybody sing
Oh oh oh, yeah yeah '
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

    I love the beginning of the song. Apparently David was just playing around when he came up with this. This song rocks

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.

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.
