(It's 'bout that time a year again!)
It was bumper to bumper when I hit that county
So I stopped and let the top down

Speakers where a bumpin',
Little hip-hop somethin'
I was stirrin' up a coke and crown

Didn't even check in the room,
We went straight for the beach,
Didn't even give the ice a chance to melt

Now I'm scoutin' my spot,
Where we were gonna rock,
With the biggest buzz I ever felt

Now I'm sittin' pretty in Suntan City,
Got the best view in the world,
Spendin' my days catchin' these rays,
Watchin' coconut covered girls

They keep strollin' by,
And they keep rollin' in,
Like the waves on the sand

Yeah, I'm sittin' pretty in Suntan City,
With a cold one in my hand (Whoo!)

Hey there cutie with a Kentuky coozie,
Have you ever hung with a Georgia boy?
And why don't you and your friends,
Ease on over here and chug a beer with Miss Illinois?

Yeah I'm sittin' pretty in Suntan City,
Got the best view in the world,
Spendin' my days catchin' these rays,
Watchin' coconut covered girls

They keep strollin' by,
And they keep rollin' in,
Like the waves on the sand

Yeah, I'm sittin' pretty in Suntan City,
With a cold one in my hand

I gotta buddy who blew all his money,
And he had to stay his broke-ass home,
He's been goin' crazy, blowin' up my phone
Wonderin' to know whats goin' on

I tell him I'm sittin pretty in Suntan City,
Got the best view in the world,
Spendin' my days catchin' these rays,
Watchin' coconut covered girls

And they keep strollin' by,
And they keep rollin' in,
Like the waves on the sand

Yeah, I'm sittin' pretty in Suntan City,
With a cold one in my hand (Yeah!)

Sittin' pretty, right here in Suntan City

No matter what the weather, the singer-songwriter heats things up with ‘Suntan City,’ following the co-ed masses as they partake in the most-beloved college ritual.

Then, to cool things off a bit, he heads into the studio to give a behind-the-scenes look at the recording of the tune

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.

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,

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.
