Stop playin' with 'em, RIOT

[Chorus: Ice Spice]
A baddie gon' get what she like (Grrah)
So what's your sign? 'Cause I like you (Like)
Got a place we can stay for the night
But I'm too shy to invite you (Grrah)
You got a gangsta vibe (Vibe)
And I want a gangsta boo (Boo)
One of a dangerous kind (Grrah)
I'm tryna see how a gangsta move

[Verse 1: Ice Spice]
He never worry 'bout no exes
All on my body, I'm the bestest
Diamonds keep dancin' on my necklace
Bitches stay mad just like the rest is (Grrah)
On Fordham, my drip was the same (Facts)
Hit up Benny when I need a chain (Like)
Made it out soon as I got fame (Grrah)
Walkin' past and they yellin' my name, damn (Damn)
Like they goin' ku (Goin' ku)
I'm a fan but I'm keepin' my cool (Keepin' my cool)
And I like it when you call me boo (My boo)
Bae, I just wanna do what you do (Like)
Fuck your thots, I'm takin' they spot (They spot)
Bitches know that I am what they not
I'ma help you get back at the opps (Grrah)
Bae, can I come when you spinnin' they block? (Grrah)
And I swear that you be on my mind (My mind)
Yeah, I'm lit, but for you, I'll make time (Make time)
Niggas waitin', you skippin' the line (Like)
I was debatin' on making you mine (Grrah)
And you fly, I could tell by your belt
And you make with the cards you was dealt (You was dealt)
By my side, then you takin' no L
He all like, "Damn, Ice, you makin' me melt" (Grrah)
Got a man but I hope you don't care (Care)
When I'm with him, I wish you was there
Takin' that risk, bae, you know I'm not scared (Like)
What he think? He know shit isn't fair
Flexin' together, I know we go better (Grrah)
We stay hot, it don't matter the weather (Grrah)
His bitches mad that he gettin' me wetter (Grrah)
Damn, I ain't feel this way in forever (Grrah)

[Chorus: Ice Spice]
A baddie gon' get what she like (Grrah)
So what's your sign? 'Cause I like you (Like)
Got a place we can stay for the night
But I'm too shy to invite you (Grrah)
You got a gangsta vibe (Vibe)
And I want a gangsta boo (Boo)
One of a dangerous kind (Grrah)
I'm tryna see how a gangsta move

[Verse 2: Lil Tjay & Ice Spice]
I don't think you should play with me (Why?)
'Cause you gon' end up like the last opp
I'm a thug off some drugs in my home
And say, long before rap, I was playin' the back box
I don't know if I'm high or just too bopped
But your shit look like you got ass shots
Treat that bitch like the opps
When them boys tryna slide and they see me, I'm givin' her back shots
I'm like, "Ice, your shit lookin' fat" (Fat)
I'm a gangsta, I keep it legit (Legit)
Not gon' hold you, I told her some secrets (What?)
So she know I be on that shit
Told her, "Not too much, know what you know" (Know)
That's when she told me, "Daddy, I'm zipped" (What?)
If the boys ever try to come press me (Huh?)
I'ma tell 'em, "No habla English" (I don't know shit)
And together, we somethin' like brish
They can't do it like you and they wish
Fuck the opps, are you ready for beef?
So you know what to do with the— (Ugh)
See a opp, I don't fold, I go quick
Like, "Who next tryna go on my list?"
If he throw up a four, we gon'— (Blitz 'em)
How many of them finna go in my spliff?
My lil' shawty, I treat her like gang
And she don't treat me like no rap nigga
I'm the youngest to do it, you had a shot, blew it
Of course she gon' leave you, my sack bigger
That lil' nigga ain't nothin' like me (Me)
And I'm definitely nothin' like that nigga (What?)
Word around is your nigga can fight (Huh?)
So you better tell him I clap niggas (Boom)

[Chorus: Ice Spice]
A baddie gon' get what she like (Grrah)
So what's your sign? 'Cause I like you (Like)
Got a place we can stay for the night
But I'm too shy to invite you (Grrah)
You got a gangsta vibe (Vibe)
And I want a gangsta boo (Boo)
One of a dangerous kind (Grrah)
I'm tryna see how a gangsta move

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
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/

Somewhere Only We Know
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."

Of Mice & Men
This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”
