Yeah, I said yeah
I remember the first time
That I ever seen her face
I was standing by the drug store
Tryin' to save the human race

Took a raincheck on a blind date
To get her prescription filled
We had a short talk and a long walk
Through the lazy cottonfield

It was hot
She was cool and sultry
We made love
I was broke and lonely

She's wonderful, so beautiful
So delectable, she's mine
She's desirable, so lovable
And it's criminal, almost illegal

Well we woke up in a barnyard
When I heard a farmer shout
"Get away, boy, from my daughter!"
When a shotgun rang out
We took off
She was right behind me
Ran like the wind
What a crazy lady

She's fabulous, so sensuous
She's marvelous, she's mine
I'm delirious, it's serious
Kinda dangerous, almost illegal

Bring it down, now.
We had a one child by the springtime
And another on the way
I got a new life and a good wife
Ain't that amazing grace

It was hot
She was cool and sultry
We made love
I was broke and lonely

She's wonderful, she's beautiful
She's desirable, she's mine
I'm delirious, she's serious
It's kinda dangerous, almost illegal
Wonderful, so beautiful
She's not a radical, but she's mine
She's fabulous, so sensuous
And it's marvelous, almost illegal
Beautiful and she's wonderful
So desirable, almost illegal

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,

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

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/

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
