She don't even know exactly where she wants to go
Is that a double negative oh never mind let's go
To the next line of the story
I met her at the smoothie king she said Seattle's best
She may be right think I remember coffee on her breathe
She smoked cigarettes, I chewed bubble gum

I know I shouldn't take it but I think I kind of like it
When she tells me that I'm dumb
And this may sound pathetic but I think that we can make it
We'll go on and on and on and on

Love songs suck and fairy tales aren't true
And happy ending Hollywood is not for me and you

So add it up and break it down
It's not that hard to figure out
Your crazy and I'm crazy about you

Everyone around me says she brings a brother down
And mommy thinks she's great but then again she's not around
To see her throw a fit, borderline conniption
And all this only matters if we listen anyway
And she's all I can think about so I must not be gay
I'm a lunatic and she's my psychopath

I know I shouldn't take it but I think I kind of like it
When she tells me that I'm dumb
And this may sound pathetic but I think that we can make it
We'll go on and on and on and on

Love songs suck and fairy tales aren't true
And happy ending Hollywood is not for me and you

So add it up and break it down
It's not that hard to figure out
Your crazy and I'm crazy about you

And we are the lucky ones we'll get matching tee shirts airbrushed at the mall
Hang out at the pretzel stand and make fun of people and laugh if someone falls
Watch everyone else hold hands and try so hard and maybe we'll start to see
That you and me we're not so crazy

Michael Bolton (never liked him)
Celine Dion
Air Supply
And now, me

Love songs suck and fairy tales aren't true
(Love songs make me sick 'cause they're not true)
And happy ending Hollywood is not for me and you
Hollywood California
So add it up and break it down (add it up and break it down)
It's not that hard to figure out
Your crazy and I'm crazy about you

Love songs make me sick 'cause they're not true
Your crazy and I'm crazy about you
Crazy 'cause I'm crazy about you
Your crazy and I'm crazy about you, yeah

    I AM this girl, right now. This explains my relationship with this guy I've been with for a while. I think it's disproving what love songs say love is really like, and the stereotypes of what people think relationships should be like. Opposites attract, yes. And most of the time real soul mates, if you believe in such, are really so much alike and so different, and that's how love works. And people may think you're a weird couple, but they don't understand love as is and how it works. Fairy tales don't work that way. There's not always happy endings to the story (especially if you've read any of Grimm's fairy tales). Love songs are more of an exaggeration of what people think real love is like.

    this song totally speaks the truth....everyone tries so hard to prove they're in love but then there are people, like the ones in this song, who are simply in love and can make fun of anyone!

    This song is pretty much about me and a girl i've been talking to for awhile now. The relationship is so perfect but it's not perfect like all the movies and songs say, it's perfect in it's own way. Our own way.

    I love this song. Its so paradoxically romantic. Its about the ridiculous, sparkly, happily-ever-after definitions of love that we subject ourselves to, and the acknowledgement that we're all screwed up and real love is what you make it to be.

    "and all this only matters if we listen anyway."..."You're crazy and I'm crazy about you."

    This song strikes a chord with me, I've been told that my partner and I don't have a conventional relationship. People don't understand our dynamics sometimes but it works for us, we're happy and that's all that matters.

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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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,

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

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/
