Oh yeah

Drivin' by the drive in movies
Started thinkin' 'bout me and Suzie
And how we used to spend those Saturday nights
Later on we'd be out cruisin'
Dashboard drummin' to our favorite music
Kissin' on the porch till her mama flashed the light
We had the world in the palm of our hands
I guess fate had other plans

This used to be our town
There wasn't a back road we hadn't been down
This used to be our town
Every inch is still sacred ground
Now I'm driving these streets and her sweet memory
Still makes my heart pound
This used to be our town

Suzie cried the day that I left for college
Didn't give a damn about higher knowledge
All she really wanted was a family
When I got back there was nothin' I could do
Her first baby was almost two
I guess she's doin' fine without me
Now some thing's change and some thing's don't
Some thing's wait and some thing's won't

This used to be our town
There wasn't a back road we hadn't been down
This used to be our town
Every inch is still sacred ground
Now I'm driving these streets and her sweet memory
Still makes my heart pound
This used to be our town
This used to be our town

Now I'm driving these streets and her sweet memory
Still makes my heart pound
This used to be our town
This used to be our town

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/

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.
