Everyone's watching, to see what you will do
Everyone's looking at you, oh
Everyone's wondering, will you come out tonight
Everyone's trying to get it right, get it right

Everybody's working for the weekend
Everybody wants a new romance
Everybody's goin' off the deep end
Everybody needs a second chance, oh
You want a piece of my heart
You better start from the start
You wanna be in the show
Come on baby let's go

Everyone's looking to see if it was you
Everyone wants you to come through
Everyone's hoping it'll all work out
Everyone's waiting they're holding out

Everybody's working for the weekend
Everybody wants a new romance
Hey, hey
Everybody's goin' off the deep end
Everybody needs a second chance, oh
You want a piece of my heart
You better start from the start
You wanna be in the show
Come on baby let's go
Hey

You want a piece of my heart
You better start from the start
You wanna be in the show
Come on baby let's go

You want a piece of my heart
You better start from the start
You wanna be in the show
Come on baby let's go

    Loverboy will always be one of those bands that hipsters, who are the emptiest of all music/film fans, love to hate, especially since the singer has stated on MTV & elsewhere that “Nirvana killed my career”, which, taking into account how Nirvana will probably never have another negative thing about them (did they ever have anything “negative” written about them?), completes the association in people’s minds that Nirvana and Loverboy are polar opposites, which could not be further from the truth. (It’s only rock n roll, man)…

    Loverboy were a huge presence on early MTV, they were positioned perfectly to have exposure on the brand new (in 1981) network, but, like Nirvana, if they hadn’t had the material, they’d have been forgotten quickly. Loverboy are actually one of the big success stories, along with Duran Duran, of the first few years of MTV.

    Anyway, my point about the song: Working For The weekend is a bona fide Great song, and is in fact a part of “The Pantheon” of great rock n roll songs. It comes in right behind Gimme Some Lovin’ by Spencer Davis, (afa songs about trying to get something going after work, trying to feel good, and get thehh by taste of the workday out of their mouths, goes, (and just ahead of Crawling From The Wreckage by Rockpile/Dave Edmunds/Graham Parker).

    This is so catchy; who the fuck cannot like this song? I always think of Zoolander when I hear this song. Anyways, the drug reference is a good theory.

Step
Ministry
Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.
