Trendy winds are blowing through my hair
The punk-elite are checking everything I wear
I'm tired of their endless whine, why can't they mind their own
'Cause what I am is what I will be

Don't need you or your crew
To tell me what to do
Everyday when you try to waste my time
I waste a rhyme

Sometimes I can't understand what's wrong
Cause this scene is filled with people who's bad and nong
You're an idiot and looser if you go their way
'Cause you don't need no one-track crew now

Sometimes I can't understand what's wrong
To all you suckers we dedicate this song

    It's funny how this song has no comments, while "No Cigar" has tons. They're both excellent songs dealing with "fitting in", and I hope people unfamiliar check this one out.

    This song reminds me a lot of "highway donkey" because they both talk about you shouldn't care what other people think of you and to live your life the way you want to, not how others expect you to fit in. He also singing about how there are lots of kids who think you have to act and dress a certain way to be punk. If the "punk elite" are checking everything Nikola wears then we have a problem because Millencolin is the best punk band of all time....

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.

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,

When We Were Young
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives."

Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
