(You got to funkifize)
(You got to funkifize)
(You got to funkifize)
(You got to funkifize)

Move to the music, got to shout and shing-a-ling,
You got to groove with the rhythm, girl, get slick and shake that thing
(Shake that thing), Yeah, just let it be for real,
If you've got the power.
Now you all know what you got to do,
You can't lay dead, just catch the groove, oh!
(You got to funkifize) Say,
(You got to funkifize) Now if you want to get funky, like a bow-legged

Monkey,
I'm telling you;

(You got to funkifize)
Got to kick to the backbeat before you get too old,
You got to flash to the fire and let it grab your soul! (Grab your soul)
Ha, ha, ha, ha! Just let it be for real, bop to the rock,
If you've got the power.
Now you all know what you got to do,
You can't lay dead, just catch that groove, oh!

(You got to funkifize) Well,
(You got to funkifize) Now if you want to get funky, like a bow-legged
Monkey,
I'm telling you;
(You got to funkifize)

They say it's in the blood,
(In the blood, in the blood)
Yeah, they say it's in the blood, yeah,
(In the blood, in the blood)
Somebody said it's in the blood, now,
(In the blood, in the blood)
Well, they say it's in the blood, girl,
(In the blood, in the blood)
But don't you know it's in your soul,

(Don't you know it's in your soul)
Don't you know it's in your soul, boy,
(Don't you know it's in your soul)
Ah, don't you know it's in your soul, mama,
(Don't you know it's in your soul)
Don't you know it's in your soul, girl,
(Don't you know it's in your soul)

(You got to funkifize) I'm tellin' you, know.
(You got to funkifize) That's all you've got to do, now.
(You got to funkifize) Talkin' 'bout that that funkiness, yeah, yeah,
Yeah.
(You got to funkifize) Oh, Woh, Oh, yeah.
(You got to funkifize) If you've got the power.
(You got to funkifize) And let it be for real, why don't you?
(You got to funkifize) And I'm telling you right now!
(You got to funkifize)

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

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.
Album art
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.
Album art
Head > Heels
Ed Sheeran

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
