Hey Jack...I know what your thinking
That now's as good as any to start drinking
Hey Scotty...Yeah...What's it gonna be
A gin & tonic sounds might mighty good to me

Man I know I gotta go it's the same thing every time
But I don't think another drinks' gonna make me lose my mind
So I think about my next drink
And it's you & me and the bottle makes 3 tonight

Well I know this cat named Moe
He wanders to and fro
His and my favorite waterin' hole
I said Hey Moe, how you doing, where have you been
He said, I've been fine with my whiskey, wine and gin

Man I know I gotta go it's the same thing every time
But I don't think another drinks' gonna make me lose my mind
So I think about my next drink
And it's you & me and the bottle makes 3 tonight

    This is my favorite BBVD song. Obviously about drinking.

    Swingers and BBVD ushered in a new era of Swing appreciation. Wonder if that will have a resurgence in the 2000s? They were featured on DWTS...

Jesse with the long hair....
Robert Earl Keen, Jr.
Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.
