Isn't it funny, to live for someone else's script
You spend a lot of money to catch that lift
And isn't it good too, to not always get all that you want
But we'll be singin' 'boo hoo hoo' if great it's not

'Cause everybody wants it so much better
Than anyone could ever let it be
I guess I should get off it or whatever
But please comfort me...

[Chorus]
George Lucas, is the Force with us?
Will it save us from heartbreak in 1998?

Demons with the cat claws threaten us with their fake grace
But angels without wings can't take their place
And if it's just a smart bomb in a theater far, far away
Well, we'll be singin' 'woo hoo hoo, oh man that's great!'

'Cause I never thought that this could happen,
That I could ever feel this way again
I know it's kinda dumb but it dosen't matter,
I can't hold it in

[Chorus]
George Lucas, is the Force with us?
Will it save us from heartbreak in 1998?

George Lucas, don't lose your focus
'Cause the theaters will be full come what may

    Yeah, too bad Episode I was the biggest disappointment since....ever. George Lucas had the whole world in his hand on this one and chose to make a super-marketable childrens' movie rather than an enjoyable instalment in the Star Wars series. Hundreds of thousands of Star Wars fans, UFB included, have convinced themselves otherwise, but don't be fooled.

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.

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,

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.

Ed Sheeran

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.
