You talk too much, never saying what's on your mind,
It's written on your face, I lead the world you hide behind.
I know what you want, I can see what you're looking for,
I know what you want from me,
An' I'm gonna give you more.

I'm gonna slide it in right to the top,
Slide it in, I ain't never gonna stop.
Slide it in, right to the top,
I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in, slide it, in baby.

Sometimes you seem just like a stranger to me,
But, all the games you play make it so easy to see.
You're looking for love, tho' you try to deny,
The things you put me through
Tell me what I've got to do to you.
I'm gonna slide it in, right to the top,
Slide it in, I ain't never gonna stop.
Slide it in, right to the top,
I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in.

You talk too much, always treating me so unkind,
I know what I've got to do, to get me some peace of mind.

I'm gonna slide it in, right to the top,
Slide it in, I ain't never gonna stop.
Slide it in, right to the top,
I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in,
Slide it in, right to the top.
Slide it in, I ain't never gonna stop.
Slide it in, right to the top,
I'm gonna slide it in, slide it in, slide it, slide it in, slide it in, right to the top, baby.

    Kautz... You remind me of my presumptions about nsync songs when I was 10, lol.

    This song is most certainly about Mr. Coverdale's pee-pee going all the way into a nice young lady's va-jay-jay.

    I always thought this song was an obvious sexual innuendo. Anyone else agree?

    My Interpretation

    this song is most definitely about sliding in a cd (or tape player) Could be about sex, but I like the idea of cd's better. It makes me laugh.

    My Interpretation

    At the beginning it's about intercourse but at the end it's about a Knife! "always treating me so unkind, I know what I've got to do, to get me some peace of mind, I'm gonna slide it in, right to the top." Plot Twist! :-)

    A profound treatise on the inevitable interplay between romance and lust. Philosophical ground is certainly broken here, as the verse brings us to exalted highs, and chorus brings it home with a euphoric resolution.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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,

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

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.
