Hey la la...Hey la la...

Didn't know what time it was, and the lights were low - ow - ow
I leaned back on my radio - o - o
Some cat was laying down some rock 'n' roll, "lotta soul", he said
Then the loud sound did seem to fa - a - ade,
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of pha - a - ase
That weren't no D.J., that was hazy cosmic jive
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us, but he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it, 'cause he knows it's all worthwhile, he told me
Let the children lose it, let the children use it
Let all the children play

I had to phone someone, so I picked on you - ou - ou
Hey, that's far out, so you heard tim too - oo - oo
Switch on the T.V., we may pick him on channel two
Look out your window, I can see his ligh - igh - ight
If we can sparkle he may land tonigh - igh - ight
Don't tell your papa or he'll get us locked up in fright

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us, but he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it, 'cause he knows it's all worthwhile, he told me
Let the children lose it, let the children use it
Let all the children boogie

There's a starman waiting in the sky
He'd like to come and meet us, but he thinks he'd blow our minds
There's a starman waiting in the sky
He's told us not to blow it, 'cause he knows it's all worthwhile, he told me
Let the children lose it, let the children use it
Let all the children play, let the children learn

La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

    This is a cover of a David Bowie song. It's a great song but it doesn't really belong listed under Dar (as much as I love her).

    This is a great sci-fi song and so not like Dar's usual style (probably since it's a cover). This is what it says at the beginning of the song:

    Echo, echo, echo, echo..

    It’s nine minutes till the new millennium Earth children have successfully united In a partnership for a drug-free planet Notably with no socio-political or cultural replacement for the drugs they’ve forsaken

    Meanwhile on the 34th floor of Happiness Limited, Barton Buck kicks back two xanax With some scotch that he was going to give his doorman He puts in a call to a newly acquired Home thousand-watt radio station He has a ticket giveaway for a new multiplex At a suburban mall There’s no answer

    It’s eight minutes, forty seconds to the new millennium And Happiness Limited has lost contact with the youth of the world

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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."

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.
