Sur les longs chemins bleus de Saragosse
Nymphes et lubies traînent leurs carrosses
Et comme dans le manuscrit
Un songe m'envahit
Dare dare
Mille nuées de beautés fauves hystériques
Ondulent lascives en arrière boutique
Halètent les succubes
Tuners gueulent à pleins tubes
Trop tard

Who set my head on fire?
Who set my head on fire?
l'm just a kinda Cuckoo
Body and soul in the glue
Who set my head on fire?
Who set my head on fire?
Ping, when everybody's Pong
Ô sweet dreams, you drive me wrong
Can't you see?
Got the same camel in the back and front of me

Globe trotteur en traversées immobiles
S'en viennent me chevaucher cent sybilles
Cloportes et jaretelles
Sofas, singeries fines
Nectar

Who set my head on fire?
Who set my head on fire?
I'm just a kinda Cuckoo

Body and soul in the stew
Who set my head on fire?
Who set my head on fire?
Ping, when everybody's Pong
Ô sweet dreams, you drive me wrong
Can't you see?
Got the same oamel in the back and front of me

Sur les longs chemins bleus de Saragosse
Tournoyants vautours Iorgnent mon tas d'os
Et comme dans le manuscrit
Le désert m'ensevelit
Tartare
Cauchemar...

Who set my head on fire?
Who set my head on fire?
I'm just a kinda Cuckoo
Body and soul in the glue
Who set my head on fire?
Who set my head on fire?
Ping, when everybody's Pong
Ô nightmares, you drive me wrong
Who set my head on fire?
Who set my head on fire?
Ping, when everybody's Pong
Ô sweet dreams, you drive me wrong
Can't you see?
Got the same camel in the back and front of me
Saragosse

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,

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

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/

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
