These have been quiet days
When was the last time i wanted to sing
Last few dying days hanging on - what will they bring?
Even you and me
We keep coming apart
And it's a wrong thing
We goota look right at each other and say it
Turn on the radio and play it
And fall in love again
Can you feel the light shine
You now this song's yours and mine
Ain't it good to know you've got a place to go
Where the melody's fine
Sometimes i'm not so strong
And even now i could be wrong
But if you love me like music
I'll be your song

Lately the day's been grey
And time's been hard
Man up in town putting everybody down
Watch him play his card
When you get free come on home to me
I'm gonna lay it down
We got love - we've got to feel it and show it
Make each other really know it
And fall in love again
We've got to be friends

    this is a really great song. I kind of disagree with Oberheim345 about today's music. Yes, a lot of it is filled with negativity, but if you find the right music, it can be very good and positive. To me, this song is about a couple who care about each other but often grow apart. But then they can listen to music and be reminded of how they are in love and are really good friends. But that's just my take on it

    Its about how music makes everybody feel better whenever theyre listening to it. Ann is telling you to turn on the radio and let the music take over you. I guess this was true for 1975, because music was mosly positive then. Today, music is negative and filled with hate, anger and violence (or sex), so Ann's advisory wouldnt do much good today unfortunately.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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,

This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
