En el bulevar de los sueños rotos
Vive una dama de poncho rojo,
Pelo de plata y carne morena
Mestiza ardiente de lengua libre,
Gata valiente de piel de tigre
Con voz de rayo de luna llena

Por el bulevar de los sueños rotos
Pasan de largo los terremotos
Y hay un tequila por cada duda
Cuando Agustín se sienta al piano
Diego Rivera lápiz en mano,
Dibuja a Frida Kahlo desnuda

Se escapo de una cárcel de amor,
De un delirio de alcohol,
De mil noches en vela
Se dejo el corazón en Madrid
Quien supiera reí­r
Como llora Chavela!

Por el bulevar de los sueños rotos
Desconsolados van los devotos
De San Antonio pidiendo besos,
Ponme la mano aC, Macorina"
Rezan tus fieles por las cantinas,
Paloma Negra de los excesos

Por el bulevar de los sueños rotos
Moja una lagrima antiguas fotos
Y una canción se burla del miedo
Las amarguras no son amargas
Cuando las canta Chavela Vargas
Y las escribe un tal José Alfredo

Se escapo de una cárcel de amor

Las amarguras no son amargas
Cuando las canta Chavela Vargas
Y las escribe un tal José Alfredo

Se escapo de una cárcel de amor

Por el bulevar de los sueños rotos

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,

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

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.

Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
