Making all these waves and
I wonder where the days went
I sit and think of you, I hope the feeling's mutual
I'm seeing all you gave and
It somehow don't seem even close to what I'd do
To break in two seems natural

These days are great
There's work to do
Would you like to work with me? I'd love to work you
These days are great
And so are you
I think it's something positive, and negative too

Playing all these games and
I wonder who's to blame it
I sit and think it's you, I'm sure the feeling's mutual
We're growing cold
It's getting old
We should have known it's over

These days are great
There's work to do
Would you like to work with me? I'd love to work you
These days are great
And so are you
I think it's something positive, and negative too

We'll be a real team
We'll be a real team

These days are great
There's work to do
Would you like to work with me? I'd love to work you
These days are great
And so are you
I think it's something positive, and negative too

These days are great
There's work to do
Would you like to work with me? I'd love to work you
These days are great
And so are you
I told you

    Great song, great video. As for a meaning, I think it's just a fairly straightforward love song. The music is great though. Easily one of their better songs.

    My Interpretation

    I understand that the song is about someone who finds a colleague at work with whom he or she can work really good together and he or she asks whether they want to work together in the next project.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

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.
