This record is particularly good for the youngsters
Now you get right to the procedure

Now what do you like the most about this
Conflict, consequence, constant evidence
A classic content communicated conference
Whether 5 or 6 whether a number misprint
Or if it seems that you heard it before
If you thought that you would never hear it no more
You should never doubt when we running word o' mouth
Be concerned about your health (let's go!)
(wait wait yourself)
Now you know us but it's not the Cold Crush
Four MC's so we ain't the Furious
Not the Force MC's or the 3 from Treacherous
It's a blast from the past from the moment we bust
From whatever we touch, we hold platinum plus
But if our shit go rust, still In God We Trust
Cause it's the second coming
Display a rhyme so stunning
We keep it running, and give a shout out to London
And keep it all, and still perform till the early morn'
Sunset til dawn
I got a word abundance, hold pens by the hundreds
Top speed, guaranteed, we still running

I be boombastic
With my terror tactics
Why you acting plastic
Treating all ya fans like fanatics
We be the upper pair comin' air-tight like Tupperware
Fuck a fear, press ya luck and beware the brigadier

Yea, DJ's be spinning the records that make up the music
So people can focus whenever the mic has been passed to me

The more drums we have in our kit, the more jobs we can handle
We gonna take a break here

Lets go. wait wait yaself
?? appeal, A-K-I-L known to exhale when I inhale
And you can tell when in the crew I do my duty-o
And swung to the studio
J-5 let the beat bounce
That's what counts without a doubt
So sup grab the mic and pull the magic out ya mouth
We be the rhythm kings, plus rhyme channelings
[I could snare anything] Go ahead

Light emcee can't match this phatness so we practice
Burning through walls of wackness
Yo, 2 emcees add a little more spice
So we concentrate on mic's to keepin ? parties tight
Three emcees underground and worldwide
Surgeon general notify that the 5 is certified
Four emcees at your door once more
When it rains it pours from the heavens to the Earth floor
Five elements, vocal instruments super extra strength hip-hop activist
Five for your mind no time and intertwine
Roll with the rhymes sunset to sunrise
Five you should know, when we flow, you get what you looking for
Five terrorize ya enterprise
'cause we don't shoot until we see the whites of ya eyes
Non-stop, real rhyme rocking disc jockeys out record shopping
Writers doing graphs so bring ya pop locking
We incorporate the whole of hip hopping
Non-stop, we keep it up to par
From the metal monkey bars to concrete school yards
It's like written Arabic, coming from right to left
It's hot to def so take a breath and (wait wait yourself)

    Wow. I've had this album for a while, but this morning was the first time I actually listened to this song carefully. What a gem! Much better than their other hit, "what's golden."

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.

Mental Istid
Ebba Grön
This is one of my favorite songs.

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.

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.
