Blonde Wendy, the principal's daughter
Scrubs her teeth to a pearly white
Bathes herself in wine and water
Getting set to go out tonight.

She covers her face with precious lotions
Cover her legs with nylon mesh
Dances all night with awkward motions
How does Wendy stay so fresh?

And Wendy won't give me the time of day, no
But I still love her anyway, oh
And if I ever speak with her
Here is what I'll say,
Do you hear the music, Wendy, do you hear the tune?
Do you think it might bear some relevance to what you're doin'?
Do you watch the sunrise at the very end of your day?
Do you hear the music, Wendy...
Ain't you got nothing to say?

"Well we're driving into town Mom but don't let it trouble you
My girlfriend's driving and she'll stay straight
We're all going in to see GSW
Don't expect me home 'til late."

She'll see the band again tomorrow
Wendy always comes back for more
Keeps a little something to drown out her sorrow
Hidden in the medicine cabinet door.


Do you hear, do you hear, do you hear
Do you hear the music Wendy?

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.

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

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."

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.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
