So you want to be a superstar here's a big big kiss
You want a mess like this 'cause it's the real deal bliss
You got a face like this boy now you just can't miss
You're smoking cheap cigars and drinking beer like piss well
I'm not me I'm not free
You're not mee you're not free
James Brown don't move like that you got to step and twist
I got a six pack and an 80 proof fist
I get it, it's funny, you know I'm making money
Not summer, but sunny. Cool like the Easter bunny
You get it, I'm on it, I got the milk and honey
You make me laugh - Ha ha ha
You make me laugh - Ha ha ha
You make me laugh - Ha ha ha
I hear you want to be an icon like Madonna (like a virgin)
You ask yourself now do I? do I?
Do I got to be a sucker slaving 9 to 5, and in the 5 to 9
You're fucking busy working overtime
I'm not me I'm not free
You're not me you're not free
You don't got moves like this
You don't got style like this
I'm not faking it, baby I'm making it
I get it, it's funny, you know I'm making money
Not summer, but sunny, cool like the Easter bunny
You get it, I'm on it, I got the milk and honey
You make me laugh - Ha ha ha
You make me laugh - Ha ha ha
You make me laugh - Ha ha ha

    I'm so damn glad that people are finally giving HD some credit! I saw them in concert when they opened for Lit here in Denver about a year ago and hardly anyone out here has heard of them! Keep promoting them as much as you can cuz they fuckin' rock!!!

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.

Bron-Y-Aur Stomp
Led Zeppelin
This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

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."
