Hah!

When we started we thought we were great
Though nobody else agreed
Just you and I wasting our time
Playing and singing out of key

And they said we played too loud
'Cause we didn't play for their crowd
We just told them "wait and see"

We had no money but still we went on
Trying to get some gear
A smashed-up cymbal and an old snare drum
Our financial state was clear

And they said we should give up
They said we didn't have a hope
And we still told them "wait and see"

We worked harder, got better in every way
Got some other friends involved
Pretty soon we found we knew how to play
We'd got all our problems solved

But I swear to this day
I could see you drifting away
But I told myself "wait and see"

Then came the day you said goodbye
We tried to smile but had to cry
You knew that you'd be missed
But we wished you all the best
But still we wished you would stay

Till then you were a part of everything
And everything that might have been
But now that everything has turned into what is
If you'd have waited you'd have seen

But you gave yourself the sack
Now there's no turning back
Now all your future's "wait and see"

You're not good enough, you're not good enough
You're not good enough to be a dance band
You're not good enough, you're not good enough
You're not good enough to be a dance band

They told us "you're not good enough, you're not good enough
You're not good enough to be a dance band
You're not good enough, you know you're never good enough
You know you're not good enough to be a dance band"

"You're not good enough, you know you're never good enough
You know you're not good enough to be a dance band
You're not good enough, you know you're never good enough
You know you're not good enough to be a dance band"
But we're not giving up, we're not giving up
We're not giving up, we'll show them
One-two-three-four!

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.
