"Rhthm & Soul" as written by and Britt Daniel....
Come loosen up
So hung up
Come count them ways to brether

Gets cold in ways you always forget

Oh you know
Mm... the rhythm and soul
Get your hands out your back pocket
Boy let it go

Here comes the man
You saw in Khazan
He just picks in his cold
The rhythm and soul

Dollars and cent
And no accidents
Not in the name of democracy
Come get there
Come be there
Come let your socks fall down to your shoes

Oh you know
Mm... the rhythm and soul
Get your ankles moving their sockets
All that you've done

Here comes the man
You saw in Khazan
He just picks in his cold
The rhythm and soul

When you take a picture and it falls in the lot
Take another picture and you spring in the trap
Mm you miss home

You can't back this at your ride
Change of tide

And you're wise, you're wise
Rhythm and

Tracked houses
Square couches
Short legs and
Square shoulders

Pot holders
Aching soldiers
Your tank rollers
Your all overs

And you know
Ooh the rhythm and soul
Get your fingers moving their sockets
Tune in Tokyo

You're just the man
The one I saw in Khazan
Wonder what this book will throw
The rhythm and

    General CommentI'm still puzzling over this song, but I do believe it was intended to be political. Like the rhythm OF souls...how there's souls dropping everywhere, and politicians basically have no souls. There are a lot of war references."...no accidents/not in the name of democracy." Hm.

    General CommentHard to tell, but it seems to me like it's about living in an authoritarian regime, one like Russia (where Kazan is) under Putin that stifles dissent and opposition.

    General CommentHa! I thought he said, "The man you saw in Kazaam", as in Shaq. Had to look it up for that reason. Good song.

    My InterpretationI thought it was about a man pursuing another man at a nightclub or something like that, and the pursuer is kinda uptight at first, he doesn't really want to dance, but the narrator cajoles him into loosening up and being in the moment, and they hit it off. I guess the Kazan part doesn't really fit though...dunno if you would follow a stranger from one city to another just to possibly hook up :P
