When I'm feeling blue, all I have to do
Is take a look at you, then I'm not so blue
When you're close to me, I can feel your heart beat
I can hear you breathing near my ear
Wouldn't you agree, baby you and me got a groovy kind of love

Anytime you want to you can turn me onto
Anything you want to, anytime at all
When I kiss your lips, ooh I start to shiver
Can't control the quivering inside
Wouldn't you agree, baby you and me got a groovy kind of love, oh

When I'm feeling blue, all I have to do
Is take a look at you, then I'm not so blue
When I'm in your arms, nothing seems to matter
My whole world could shatter, I don't care
Wouldn't you agree, baby you and me got a groovy kind of love
We got a groovy kind of love
We got a groovy kind of love, oh
We got a groovy kind of love

    A remake of a 1965 song by the Mindbenders. It went to #2 on the US and UK charts then.

    Phil took it all the way to #1 in 1988. He was nominated for "Best Male Pop Vocal Performance" but lost to Bobby McFarin's "Don't Worry, be Happy".

    It was originally recorded in the 1960s by Wayne Hontana and the Mindbenders - much more up-tempo and, in my opinion much better than Ol' Baldylocks' smarmy, slushy version. How dare HE even use the word "groovy"?

    I love this version. It's almost as good as the original by The Mindebenders. The original was The Mindbenders first hit after Wayne Fontana left the band and thus the lead singer is Eric Stewart who went on to be a member of the great band 10cc!

    This version is my second favourite after the original, my third being the Gene Pitney version. Such a great song!

    I was in the street The silk of autumn was whispering I knew that another was there—invisible A reciter stood on the stage—wild-eyed Don’t worry It went off well Christmas tree burns in the forest with gilded flames Toy wolves glare from the bushes And the crystal vault of heaven—laughing without end

    One of the handmaidens of the Seraphim was sleeping Our candles make a twilight at noon No lack of subject The mist of events drifts away (The horseshoes still ring with the old days in our wild wagon train …) Phaedra the flame is burning by day And we are amazed I kiss your sun burnt elbow—I kiss your hand Nothing can erase this night But there’s still light with you

    [paraphrased poetry]

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.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
