Downtown we'll drown
We're in our never splendour
Flowers, showers
Who's got the new boy gender?
I'll be your baby, I'll be your score
I'll run the gun for you and so much more

I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble for ya
I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble for you
I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble for ya
I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble

Uptown their sound is like the native you send her
Junction, function the boy with pop is slender
Did he say maybe or I'm not sure?
He'll be a boy for you but you need more

I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble for ya
I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble for you
I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble for ya
I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble

I get a crazy feeling that chases in my head
It's nothing that you do to me
It's nothing that you said
It's love in stereo
And when I can't let got I say

I'll be your baby
I'll be your score
I'll run the gun for you and so much more
I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble for ya
I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble for ya
I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble for ya
I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble

Downtown we'll drown
We're in our never splendour
Flowers, showers
Who's got the new boy gender?
I'll be your baby, I'll be your score
I'll run the gun for you and so much more

I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble for ya
I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble for you
I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble for ya
I'll tumble for ya, I'll tumble

    We were all too stupid in the early to mid 80's to understand what Boy George was trying to tell us with "the new boy gender." It's sad, but I just got that line now:) With Culture Club; Wham; The Go-Go's and a handful of other bands the decade was one of dance and fun. The songs were simple, yet catchy. They portrayed the still-innocense of the time, but with Aids gradually becoming a household word (and fear) and feminism hitting its high, music would soon change drastically. I'm happy that I got to be a part of a time in history when music, as well as life, seemed so much more simple.

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,

Blink-182
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

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.
