they all said life's just a bowl of cherries, but
sometimes it seems like anything but
think again
sometimes reputations outlive their applications
sometimes fires don't go out
when you're done playing with them
I feel so funny deep inside
I wanna kiss myself goodbye


sugarhigh..
gotta have it really need it to get by
sugarhigh..
wanna feel it can't conceal it
sugarhigh


I could go out and not even leave the house
a TV set and a bottle of wine, just fine
crashing out on that old pull out couch
watching saturday night live
I guess that's why
I feel so funny deep inside
I wanna kiss myself goodbye


sugarhigh


when I think about my life
I wanna kiss myself goodbye


sugarhigh..
sugarhigh


alright, (guitar solo)


I... far and wide
I've explored the deepest caverns of my mind
to try and find an explanation why
I get this funny feeling deep inside
when I think about my life
I wanna kiss myself goodbye


sugarhigh..
gotta have it really need it to get by
sugarhigh..
I wanna feel it can't conceal it makes me high
sugarhigh..
need it now I've got to live until I die
sugarhigh..
can you feel it, can you feel it
sugarhigh

    This is the lyrics to the film version of the song. The one where Renee Zellweger sings. I'll post the lyrics to the soundtrack version.

    ratboy - i dont think they ever put it on an album. i dunno, cos i think on the 'empire records' soundtrack, its just the studio version of the song.

    i managed to download the movie version though. i guess someone had the bright idea of ripping it through their tv and somehow converting it to mp3.

    is ANYONE going to discuss what this song is about?

    This song is so fucking awesome. Lyrics, instruments and vocals are sublime. It's one of the best (if not) thee best sex song ever and is definetely up there in amazing songs in my book.

    However, this is the edited version and the album version is much better.

    These lyrics aren't about sex, instead they relate to the characters in Empire Records.

    Here are the real lyrics...

    they all said "she's just another groupie slut" and I said I thought you were anything but think again, sometimes reputations outlive their applications and sometimes fires don't go out, when you're done playing with them I feel so funny deep inside when you kiss me goodbye

    sugarhigh.....sugarhigh.....sugarhigh.....sugarhigh

    we could go out and not even leave the house a t.v. set and a bottle of wine is just fine making out on that old pull out couch watching saturday night live, I guess that's why I feel so funny deep inside when I lick between your thighs

    sugarhigh.....sugarhigh.....sugarhigh.....sugarhigh

    alright...solo

    and I have searched both far and wide and I've explored the deepest caverns of my mind to try and find an explanation why I get this funny feeling deep inside when you kiss me goodbye and when I lick between your thighs

    sugarhigh.....sugarhigh.....sugarhigh.....sugarhigh....shhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Of course this song is about sex. Everything is. He gets a high when she is around. He is trying to find when she does this to him. A kiss good night and licking thighs has never fufilled him in so many ways. She's sweet like sugar, adn he get's off on her sweetness. Maybe he likes how sweet she is because everyone said she was a slut.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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/
