This is nothing new to me
It takes more than what you got
To frighten me
I'm not scared of you
There's nothing you can do
Or take from me

Untouchable
You think you're untouchable
You know
No one's untouchable

You're bound to lose the game
There's no one else to blame
You play so safe
And you're not risking enough
You are doomed to be undone
I swear I'll be the one
To bring you down
It's all your fault
Cause you got caught

It must be nice
To be so sure
And never feel insecure
It must feel good to believe
You're always right
And you're never wrong

You've got something to say
You say it to my face
And be a man about it
You got a problem with me
Don't go behind my back
Just like a baby

Pride comes before you take a fall
You'd best beware a woman scorned
Cause no one's untouchable

    This song remins me so much about this group of friends at my school who talk shit on me just because I'm different. I've never even spoken a word to them, and they go off telling my friend all this shit about me. I just want to wave these lyrics in their faces. Especially the part where she says: You've got something to say You say it to my face And be a man about it You got a problem with me Don't go behind my back Just like a baby

    Damn, I love this song! lol :p

    I love this song, it's my favorite song on the beautifulgarbage cd...It reminds me about a friend I had who broke off friendship our friendship for reasons I am not even sure of. I tend to get rather upset since I had been so close with him. Now all I feel is this intense feeling of wanting to get back at him and make him realize what he's doing to me : "You are doomed to be undone; I swear ill be the one to bring you doown"

    definately a song about revenge and bringing the person who betrayed/hurt them down and they are enjoying every last minute of it,

    "You're bound to lose the game There's no one else to blame You play so safe And you're not risking enough You are doomed to be undone I swear I'll be the one To bring you down"

    i also heard that song was just a metaphor of the music industry and how it can harm people, and its about bringing down the rules and being successful, but i highly doubt it considering whose in the band

    I always thought that related to the old saying, "Hell hath no fury like a scorned woman."

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,

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/
