No one can stop me know
I'm like a human dynamo
Live wired and charging out with power
This time I won't hold back
I'm raring to get up and go
Fuelled up and growing by the hour

Look out
I'm blasting through the lines
Alive and kicking
Watch out
I'm young and lethal
I'm going from here until eternity

I'm feeling reckless (reckless)
Way out of hand, a real survivor
Reckless (reckless)
Coming at gale force ten

Around me I feel the shock waves
Building from the energy
A force field no one can break through
Solid as rock, no wonder
I am indestructible
First placed in everything I do

Look out
I'm blasting through the lines
Alive and kicking
Watch out
I'm young and lethal
I'm going from here until eternity

I'm feeling reckless (reckless)
Way out of hand, a real survivor
Reckless (reckless)
Coming at gale force ten

Radioactive
Feel I'm shooting through the atmosphere
Taking off
I'm heading like a rocket through the stratosphere

Look out
I'm blasting through the lines
Alive and kicking
Watch out
I'm young and lethal
I'm going from here until eternity

I'm feeling reckless (reckless)
Way out of hand, a real survivor
Reckless (reckless)
Coming at gale force ten
I'm feeling reckless (reckless)
Way out of hand, a real survivor
Reckless (reckless)
I'm coming at gale force, coming at gale force ten

I'm feeling reckless (reckless)
Way out of hand, a real survivor
Reckless (reckless)
I'm coming at gale force, coming at gale force ten

    This was about Maverick in the movie Top Gun but Judas Priest backed out of the soundtrack at the last minute because they felt the movie would flop.

    Great song and truly underappreciated, think about all the love this would get had it stayed on the movie soundtrack!

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/

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
