Surf's up
In the sun I'm waiting for the day
Having fun in warm far away
Moonlight nights water seems so clear
Oh city lights while I'm still waiting here
In the sun it's for everyone
In the sun were gonna have some fun
In the sun were gonna shoot the tube
I'll do it for you my paka lola luau love
New York isle is covered by gray
Concrete piles blues play my way
Tropic haze pineapple sky
Perfect wave hurricane eye
In the sun it's for everyone
In the sun were gonna have some fun
In the sun were gonna shoot the tube
I'll do it for you my paka lota burning love
In the sun it's for everyone
In the sun were gonna have some fun
In the sun were gonna shoot the tube
I'll do it for you my paka lota burning love
Where is my wave?

    Ah, 'she' wants to be on a warm, sunny day on some sort of island, cause in New York it's always 'gray'. But I also think that 'shoot the tube' is a metaphor for an orgasm, even if it's also surfin' slang (in Look Good In Blue Debbie Harry did the same sort of thing with '[Give you some head] and shoulders to lie on.').

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

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,
