For all night Dwight

Got a '56 Cadillac
With a spare tire on the back
Got a charge account in my old bank
Said, I Ain't Got You

Well got a classic and a pool
And a big hair ghoul
No matter who I fool
Said, I Ain't Got You

I got a taylor and a liquor store
I played the number four, four, four
Got a mojo and don't you know
I'm dressed up with no place to go
I got women to the left of me
Women to the right of me
I got chicks all around me
Said, I Ain't Got You
I said, I ain't got you

Yeah, I got a taylor and a liquor store
I play the number four, four, four
I got a mojo' yeah, and don't you know
I'm dressed up with no place to go
Got woman to the left of me
Woman to the right of me
I got chicks all around me
Said, I ain't got you
I said, I ain't got you

Mr. Whitford!

Yeah, I got a taylor and a liquor store
I play the number four, four, four
Got a mojo and don't you know
I'm dressed up with no place to go
Got woman to the left of me
Woman to the right of me
I got chicks all around me
Said, I ain't got you
I said, I ain't got you

Oh Joe!

I got a taylor and a liquor store
I play the number four, four, four
I got a mojo and don't you know
I'm dressed up with no place to go
I got woman to the left of me
I got woman to the right of me
I got chicks all around me
Said, I ain't got you
I said, I ain't got you
You know I Ain't Got You, baby

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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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,

When We Were Young
Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

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.
