Governments elected nobody votes Politically correct isn't that a joke? We censor music then give children guns On CNN Still fightin' to death over Jerusalem Four letter disease still makes us run Can't comprehend that you can die from Love

Can I start things over And change your mind Can I sing a melody Press rewind Can I move your feet make your heart skip a beat Can a simple tune flow through you?

When the music feels like this When you lose control you gotta go with it Ten feet high Flyin' above the sky Your problems don't exist When music feels like this

No money left in Africa Starvin' to death In Bosnia we close our eyes and hide a nation cries And In the West TV Possessed and weight obsessed The media dissects, infects We think real life is reality TV

Can I have your attention And Press rewind When the DJ spins Will it change your mind? Can I move your feet Make your heart skip a beat Can a piece of me Flow through you?

When the music feels like this When you lose control you gotta go with it Ten feet high Flying above the sky Your problems don't exist When music feels like this

When the Music feels like this DJ take control And Grab a hold of me Spin that wheel Tell me how to feel I like the shape I'm in When music feels like this

Bringin' the beat back Stompin' the floor Dancin' like a booty never bounced before

Poppin' to the back beat Up on the one Smack Jack Freakin' now you're overcome

When the music feels like this When you lose control you gotta go with it Ten feet high Flying above the sky Your problems don't exist When music feels like this

When the Music feels like this DJ take control And Grab a hold of me Spin that wheel Tell me how to feel I like the shape I'm in When music feels like this

Let the music in Let the DJ spin Let the music in Coz the music should feel like this Feel the music

    Wow, this is a really good song. It's all about the reality of seeing the world for how it really is. It's a definite wake-up call to the world!!! :nod:

    It's a pretty catchy song. Didn't realize Switchfoot lyrics could be mixed with circa '97 dance music lol.

    Good song, and very straightfoward. Some social commentaries on what Darren, and many others, think is wrong with the world that we live in today. Also, that even though there are these problems, some peoples escapism (Darren's obviously for example) is music. Either creating it, listening to it... it's just such a very intimate thing if you think about it, because not everyone likes the same music, not everyone hears it the same way, not everyone interperts it in the same manner... it's very cathardic and can help you relax and temporarily forget about all the harsh realities of the world which most of us have little to no control over.

    Yes, I know what you mean Misseverus, as a music lover I find peace and joy in it. I remember when Spin came out, this one was one of the first that hooked me, simply because that's the way I felt it, music can turn your day around. When I got that cd (which took me months to get) it would be my joy and almost reason for living lol (truly it was), and I used to jump around this song and singing it loud lol..ahh I was so young back then.... Seriously...music can take you on a trip...make you forget your troubles, or go deeper into them (like in TTATS)...but anyway you want it, it's an experience beyond explanation.

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.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

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.

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
