Uh Tony, this song is called Lou Weed
Well, baby, just look at Lou
Well ya do what you want to do
And nothing less for you
Well, whatever will get you through
Now Satan you seem like a typical dude
When you notice I'm stayin' and starin' at you
And I can see you got the heroin blues
Really it looks good on you

Well, baby, just look at Lou
I know women, women want to be seen with you
Well, that's ok too
Those women really look good on you
Now you always act so cool
Like your waiting for your man
Up on Lexingtion Ave.
And no one is there to hook up for you
So who's place are you going too

Well, baby, just look at Lou
Yeah, baby, just look at Lou
I said, baby, just look at Lou
Yeah, baby, look at Lou

    An homage to the Velvet Underground. The Dandies do a good job of imitating the VU's musical style.

    'Lexingtion Ave' would be the place made famous by the VU in their first album. aparently you could buy any drug from there.

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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Punchline
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran sings about missing his former partner and learning important life lessons in the process on “Punchline.” This track tells a story of battling to get rid of emotions for a former lover, whom he now realized might not have loved him the same way. He’s now caught between accepting that fact and learning life lessons from it and going back to beg her for another chance.
Album art
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.
