Who loves the sun?
Who cares that it makes plants grow?
Who cares what it does
Since you broke my heart?

Who loves the wind?
Who cares that it makes breezes?
Who cares what it does
Since you broke my heart?

Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Not everyone
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?

Who loves the rain?
Who cares that it makes flowers?
Who cares that it makes showers
Since you broke my heart?

Who loves the sun?
Who cares that it is shining?
Who cares what it does
Since you broke my heart?

Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Not everyone
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the
Ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah, sun

Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Not just anyone
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?

Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?
Ba-ba-ba-ba
Who loves the sun?

    It's like the ultimate pessimist anthem.

    I kind of disagree that the songwriter himself is being pessimistic here. I think it's more of a tongue-in-cheek message about how some people are only concerned with their own problems when they have a broken heart.

    I had never thought that it was a burn on the Beatles but now that you mention it...

    I had always thought they were making fun of the Beach Boys for some reason but The Beatles makes much more sense. Love this song, the cough freaks me out and the chorus is so great.

    yeah they someone coughs! which only adds to the dreadful and so far never repeated pessimism of the song, disguised by the happy beatlesy melody. i adore it.

    This song is amazing because the beat throws you off. It's one of the saddest VU songs.

    Yes, it is a very pessimist song even though it's a fun melody. It really seems like there is somebody coughing at minute 1:05/06 !

    This song sounds eerily like the Beatles "Here comes the sun", it seems to me that the entire album "Loaded" is maybe an attack on the Beatles

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.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran

He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
Album art
American Town
Ed Sheeran

The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.
