The New Radicals - You Get What You Give Lyrics

1, 2,
1, 2, 3

Wake up kids 
We've got the dreamers disease 
Age 14 we got you down on your knees 
So polite, you're busy still saying please 
Frienemies, who when you're down ain't your friend 
Every night we smash their Mercedes-Benz 
First we run, and then we laugh 'til we cry 

But when the night is falling 
You cannot find the light 
You feel your dreams are dying 
Hold tight 

You've got the music in you 
Don't let go 
You've got the music in you 
One dance left 
This world is gonna pull through 
Don't give up 
You've got a reason to live 
Can't forget
We only get what we give

I'm comin' home baby
You're tops, 
Give it to me now
 
Four a.m. We ran a miracle mile 
We're flat broke,
But hey we do it in style 
The bad rich 
God's flying in for your trial 

But when the night is falling
You cannot find a friend (friend)
You feel your tree is breaking
Just then

You've got the music in you 
Don't let go 
You've got the music in you 
One dance left 
This world is gonna pull through 
Don't give up 
You've got a reason to live 
Can't forget
We only get what we give

This whole damn world, could fall apart 
You'll be ok, follow your heart 
You're in harms way, I'm right behind 
Now say you're mine 

You've got the music in you 
Don't let go 
You've got the music in you 
One dance left 
This world is gonna pull through 
Don't give up 
You've got a reason to live 
Can't forget
We only get what we give

Don't let go
I feel the music in you
Don't let go
Fly high, high

What's real, can't die 
You only get what you give 
You only get what you give 
Don't give up 
Just don't be afraid to leave 
Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying 
Fake computer crashes dining 
Cloning while they're multiplying 
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson 
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson 
You're all fakes 
Run to your mansions 
Come around 
We'll kick your ass in
Don't let go 
One dance left
Don't give up
Can't forget

You Get What You Give

  • Singer/Songwriter Gregg Alexander wrote this about people who aspire to be famous, and his cynicism toward the world of "celebrity." He's saying that people should just be themselves instead of aspiring to be someone else.
  • The closing lyrics of this song caused controversy as they accused Marilyn Monroe, Beck, Courtney Love and Hanson of being fakes and that the New Radicals will "kick their ass in." Apparently not all of these artist held a grudge: Hanson collaborated with Gregg Alexander on their song "Lost Without Each Other" on the Underneath CD.
  • The video was shot at a shopping mall in New York because Gregg Alexander said it epitomized society's fake culture of encouraging people to spend.
  • Since disbanding the group in summer 1999, Alexander has written songs for the likes of Sophie Ellis Bextor, Ronan Keating, Mel C and Enrique Iglesias. His most well known composition is probably "The Game Of Love" by Santana and Michelle Branch, which earned a Grammy in 2003.
  • This was used on the end credits for the 2006 Adam Sandler film Click.
  • In the September 25, 2006 edition of Time magazine, U2 guitarist The Edge said that this is the song he is most jealous of.
  • This is the first hit song to use the word "Frenemies" in the lyrics: "Frenemies, who when you're down ain't your friend." The word started showing up in the late '90s to explain those weird relationships where you could be both friends and enemies with someone at the same time, depending on the situation. "Frenemies" became the title of a book in 2007 and a movie in 2012, but many of us heard it for the first time courtesy of The New Radicals.

    Dido - NYC Lyrics

    White house on the beach
    My steps down to the sand
    The plane takes off and we
    We are just when it lands

    Waiting in a room
    Where the windows won't open
    Got coffee with no mud
    And my heart still ain't broken
    Still ain't broken
    Still ain't broken

    And the music stops
    And the beat goes on
    And the music stops
    But I'm dancing on

    I won't be home until I've walked
    Every street in New York
    And I'll walk on without your love
    Without your love
    Dancing on til I'm alone
    There's no need to return
    Without your love, until I have walked
    Every street in New York

    Boat goes
    From one island to the next
    An old man drinkin' beer
    Women on the bench

    And the music stops
    And the beat goes on
    And the music stops
    But I'm dancing on

    I won't be home until I've walked
    Every street in New York
    And I'll walk on without your love
    Without your love
    Dancing on til I'm alone
    There's no need to return
    Without your love, until I have walked
    Every street in New York

    Glory when my plane takes off
    Don't know me when I'm home
    Say your prayers with your fingers crossed
    Forget to call fore I go

    If I had to phone tonight
    To say I made you sad
    And though I've fallen in your call and palm

    I won't be home until I've walked
    Every street in New York
    And I'll walk on without your love
    Without your love
    Dancing on til I'm alone
    There's no need to return
    Without your love, until I have walked
    Every street in New York

    NYC

  • This is the one brand new song on Dido's 2013 retrospective Greatest Hits. The English songstress penned the tune with Greg Kurstin the same time they wrote the Girl Who Got Away tracks, "End Of Night," "Happy New Year," and "Let's Runaway," but didn't finish it. Dido told Billboard magazine: "I actually thought this was the perfect album for it to go on, because it references lyrically when I first started and first came to America. I came over to New York with a point to prove to my brother (producer Rollo Armstrong) who basically said, 'You can't do this.' I was walking the streets of New York thinking, 'I'm not going home until something happens, and I won't go home until I've walked every street in this town.' I thought this was the perfect album to put it on, as opposed to the next record."

    James Taylor - A Junkie's Lament Lyrics



    A Junkie's Lament

  • This is an autobiographical song about Taylor's battles with addictions (primarily heroin), the "monkey on his back."

    Speaking with Rolling Stone in 2015, Taylor explained: "This one's a warning not to think of a junkie as a complete functioning human being. Heroin should've killed me about five times, but it never did. My kids suffered from their father being an addict. I think there's no way they can't. People take drugs to be in control. They want to short-circuit any risk that they might take in life, any uncertainty, any anxiety. They just want to find the chemical route, to just push the button that gets the final result. So all of your relationships suffer, no question about it."

    Teenage Love

  • This was the first ever song penned by Gabrielle. She told The Independent in November 2013 about the first time she performed the tune: "I started singing in the school canteen I was 11 and I'd written my first song, called 'Teenage Love,' so I got up on the canteen table and started singing it," she recalled. "I remember being amazed that the dinner-monitoring ladies didn't kick me off. Everyone stopped and listened. I thought, this is so cool. My voice wasn't huge back then, it was just different."

    Oasis - Shakermaker Lyrics

    I'd like to be somebody else and not know where I've been
    I'd like to build myself a house out of plasticine
    Shake along with me
    I've been driving in my car with my friend Mr. Soft

    Mr. Clean and Mr. Ben are living in my loft
    Shake along with me!
    I'm sorry but I just don't know
    I know I said I told you so

    But when you're happy and you're feeling fine
    Then you'll know it's the right time
    It's the right time
    To shake along with me!

    Mister Sifter sold me songs
    When I was just sixteen
    Now he stops at traffic lights
    But only when they're green

    Shakermaker

  • The last verse of this song was written in the back of a taxi by Noel Gallagher on the way to record the song. Liam said to Noel, "We haven't actually got a last verse for this song," so Noel wrote it there and then.
  • This bears a strong resemblance to the 1971 New Seekers song "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing," which was featured in a famous Coke commercial. The similarity between the songs became evident when Oasis tribute band No Way Sis recorded a version of "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing" in 1996 doing their best to sound like Oasis.
  • The original opening lines to this song were "I'd like to teach the world to sing, in perfect harmony," but the band were forced to change the lyrics to "I'd like to be somebody else, and not know where I've been," as they didn't have permission to use these copyrighted lyrics. In early gigs, Oasis stuck with the original lyrics.
  • Oasis were successfully sued for unlicensed use of the song by the writers of "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing," a 1971 song by the New Seekers that was made famous in a Coke commercial where children gather on a hilltop to sing. Noel Gallagher cited "irony" as his defense and after losing, joked, "Now we all drink Pepsi."

    Gabrielle - Sunshine Lyrics

    Made a wish, I can dream
    I can be what I want to be
    Not afraid to live my life
    And fulfil my fantasies

    I learnt a lot of tricks to help me live my life
    You helped me find my paradise
    When you came I saw

    Sunshine through my window
    That's what you are
    My shining star
    Sunshine
    Making me feel like
    I'm on top of the world
    Telling me I'll go far

    Reaching out, for the highs
    You inspired me to try
    I felt the magic inside
    And I felt that I could fly
    I'm looking at the world in an optimistic light
    You made me appreciate my life
    'cause when you came you were my

    Sunshine through my window
    That's what you are
    My shining star
    Sunshine
    Making me feel like
    I'm on top of the world
    Telling me I'll go far

    You are the calm
    I am the storm
    You are the breeze that carries me on
    When I said a truth
    You wink at me
    You're there for me

    Sunshine (oh yeah)
    That's what you are
    My shining star
    Sunshine
    Making me feel I'm on top of the world
    Telling me that I'll go far
    Sunshine through my window
    That's what you are
    My shining star

    (Sunshine) Making me feel I'm on top of the world
    Telling me that I'll go far
    Sunshine through my window
    That's what you are
    My shining star
    Sunshine
    Making me feel I'm on top of the world
    Telling me that I'll go far
    Sunshine

    Sunshine

  • Life hasn't always been a breeze for Gabrielle, who was teased and picked on because of a lazy eye at school. Then after breaking through with her hit single "Dreams" she had to endure being in the public eye when her long term partner Tony Antoniou was imprisoned for the murder of his stepfather. Gabriellle penned this song after a happier event; The birth of her son: "Sunshine was a tribute to my son for being my whole reason for living after many testing years," she said in 2010. "Now my little girl and boy are my sunshine every day."

    Stereolab - Jenny Ondioline Lyrics

    Life on earth is a bloody
    As in the city the public wears,
    I think the brilliant cast for insane realities to come
    And that's a decisive battle that we, haven't we lost

    I don't care if the fascists have to win
    I don't care democracy's being sucked
    I don't care socialism's full of sin (Or, I don't care socialism's collapsing)
    The unbeatable system engenders rot
    That what is exciting
    Is a challenge as the new nation
    But the tensions have to be creative with some time

    The innocent suffer from the transformation in the (their)country
    They balance asylum...down and they run you
    Obviously once more it could be culture
    I bet a lot oh don't you get to

    I don't care if the fascists have to win
    I don't care democracy's being sucked
    I don't care socialism's collapsing
    The indubitable the system is so corrupt
    (This sounds like immutable on the album version)
    That what is exciting
    Is a challenge as the new nation
    But the tensions happy but
    (That the tensions happy but creative are so tight)

    Life on earth is a bloody,
    In place of the,
    The horrors of the war are keeping me free to,
    It was like taking candy from a baby.

    Jenny Ondioline

  • A "Jenny Ondioline" is a now-obsolete French brand of synthesizer developed by Georges Jenny in 1938. It has been elsewhere marketed as the "Pianoline" and the "Orcheline." It is possibly most famously used in Del Shannon's 1958 hit, "Runaway."
  • On the Transient Noise-Bursts version of this song, another song (unlisted on the track list) begins playing after the initial fade-out. This song is called "Exploding Head Movie" and was recorded separately on Stereolab's 1995 album Refried Ectoplasm.

    Heartbreak

  • This is a Rock-Soul tribute to Primal Scream's "Rocks," which was a Top Ten UK hit for the band in 1994. Gabrielle explained in the Daily Mail: "I've always loved songs with an indie feel. Primal Scream liked what we'd done and said they couldn't better it. That was class."
  • "Heartbreak" was subsequently included on Gabrielle's 2013 hit compilation Now and Always: 20 Years of Dreaming. Speaking with Digital Spy , Gabrielle said that she's always loved the song. "Everyone kept asking me where it came from as it wasn't a single," she said. "I love, love, love that song so much. I used a Primal Scream song as the backing track which I loved and I remember it going down well when I did a one-off show in Birmingham a few years ago. I've always done what feels right for me and I suppose putting this song on there represents that!"

She added the overall concept is being yourself and OK with what you're feeling," "So if you're having a good day and want to go out with your girl and see a guy or whatever, 'Don't Wanna Dance Alone' and 'Me & My Girls,'" Lauren continued. "And then if you're having one of those days where you're in a relationship and it's hard, we have 'Who Are You.' So it's a teenage-girl little diary."

  • This is about how America has too many people in prison and it throws out some facts (the percentage of Americans in the prison system has doubled since 1985; nearly 2,000,000 Americans are incarcerated). The chorus describes America's need to build more prisons, yet it none-too-discretely blames the government for the problem.

    System of a Down - Prison Song Lyrics

    They're trying to build a prison
    They're trying to build a prison

    Following the rights movements
    You clamped on with your iron fists
    Drugs became conveniently
    Available for all the kids
    Following the rights movements
    You clamped on with your iron fists
    Drugs became conveniently
    Available for all the kids

    I buy my crack, I smack my bitch
    Right here in Hollywood

    Nearly two million Americans are incarcerated
    In the prison system, prison system
    Prison system of the U.S.

    They're trying to build a prison
    They're trying to build a prison
    They're trying to build a prison
    (For you and me to live in)
    Another prison system
    Another prison system
    Another prison system
    (For you and me)

    Minor drug offenders fill your prisons
    You don't even flinch
    All our taxes paying for your wars
    Against the new non-rich
    Minor drug offenders fill your prisons
    You don't even flinch
    All our taxes paying for your wars
    Against the new non-rich

    I buy my crack, I smack my bitch
    Right here in Hollywood

    The percentage of Americans in the prison system
    Prison system, has doubled since 1985

    They're trying to build a prison
    They're trying to build a prison
    They're trying to build a prison
    (For you and me to live in)
    Another prison system
    Another prison system
    Another prison system
    (For you and me)

    They're trying to build a prison
    They're trying to build a prison
    They're trying to build a prison
    For you and me
    Oh baby, you and me

    All research and successful drug policies show
    That treatment should be increased
    And law enforcement decreased
    While abolishing
    Mandatory minimum sentences
    All research and successful drug policies show
    That treatment should be increased
    And law enforcement decreased
    While abolishing
    Mandatory minimum sentences

    Utilizing drugs to pay for
    Secret wars around the world
    Drugs are now your global policy
    Now you police the globe

    I buy my crack, I smack my bitch
    Right here in Hollywood

    Drug money is used to rig elections
    And train brutal corporate sponsored
    Dictators around the world

    They're trying to build a prison
    They're trying to build a prison
    They're trying to build a prison
    (For you and me to live in)
    Another prison system
    Another prison system
    Another prison system
    (For you and me)

    They're trying to build a prison
    They're trying to build a prison
    They're trying to build a prison
    For you and me
    Oh baby, you and me

    James Arthur - Recovery Lyrics

    I don't want to play this game no more
    I don't wanna play it
    I don't want to stay 'round here no more
    I don't wanna stay here
    Like rain on a Monday morning
    Like pain that just keeps on going on

    Look at all the hate they keep on showing
    I don't want to see that
    Look at all the stones they keep on throwing
    I don't want to feel that
    Like Sun that will keep on burning
    I used to be so discerning, oh

    In my recovery
    I’m a soldier at war
    I have broken down walls
    I defined
    I designed
    My recovery

    In the sound of the sea
    In the oceans of me
    I defined
    I designed
    My recovery

    Keep soaring,
    Keep song-writing
    My recovery

    And I can hear the choirs keep on singing
    Tell me what they’re saying
    And I can hear the phone
    It keeps on ringing
    I don’t want to answer
    I know that I used to listen
    And I know I’ve become dismissive

    In my recovery
    I’m a soldier at war
    I have broken down walls
    I defined
    I designed
    My recovery

    In the sound of the sea
    In the oceans of me
    I defined
    I designed
    My recovery

    Keep soaring,
    Keep song-writing
    My recovery

    In my recovery
    I’m a soldier at war
    I have broken down walls
    I defined
    I designed
    My recovery

    In the sound of the sea
    In the oceans of me
    I defined
    I designed
    My recovery

    Keep soaring,
    Keep song-writing
    My recovery

    Billy Joel - The River Of Dreams Lyrics

    In the middle of the night
    I go walking in my sleep
    From the mountains of faith
    To a river so deep

    I must be looking for something
    Something sacred I lost
    But the river is wide
    And it's too hard to cross

    And even though I know the river is wide
    I walk down every evening and I stand on the shore
    And try to cross to the opposite side
    So I can finally find out what I've been looking for

    In the middle of the night
    I go walking in my sleep
    Through the valley of fear
    To a river so deep

    And I've been searching for something
    Taken out of my soul
    Something I would never lose
    Something somebody stole

    I don't know why I go walking at night
    But now I'm tired and I don't want to walk anymore
    I hope it doesn't take the rest of my life
    Until I find what it is that I've been looking for

    In the middle of the night
    I go walking in my sleep
    Through the jungle of doubt
    To a river so deep

    I know I'm searching for something
    Something so undefined
    That it can only be seen
    By the eyes of the blind

    In the middle of the night

    I'm not sure about a life after this
    God knows I've never been a spiritual man
    Baptized by the fire, I wade into the river
    That runs to the promised land

    In the middle of the night
    I go walking in my sleep
    Through the desert of truth
    To the river so deep

    We all end in the ocean
    We all start in the streams
    We're all carried along
    By the river of dreams

    In the middle of the night

    The River Of Dreams

  • Billy Joel gets a lot of song ideas in his dreams, and often struggles to remember them when he wakes up. For this song, however, he woke up with the song in his head, but tried NOT to write it. He explained on The Howard Stern Show in 2010: "I thought, Who the hell am I to try to pull off this gospel song, so I took a shower to wash this song away. I sang it in the shower and knew I had to do it."

    In Joel's dream, he was "walking in his sleep," which inspired that lyric.
  • Joel has said that the phrase "River of Dreams" is a play on the phrase "Stream of Consciousness."
  • This is a very spiritual song where Joel, who identifies himself as an atheist, includes some biblical imagery, including the line, "Through the valley of fear," which is a reference to Psalm 23:4 - "Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil." Joel also says that the river is a religious image, as "there's baptizing in a river and you have to cross the river - people are getting dunked in the river and there's rivers of blood."
  • The cover of the River Of Dreams album was painted by supermodel Christie Brinkley, who was Joel's second wife.
  • Danny Kortchmar co-produced this song with Joe Nicolo, who was also the engineer. In the '70s, Kortchmar toured and recorded with James Taylor, and also played on popular albums by Jackson Browne, David Crosby/Graham Nash, Linda Ronstadt and many others. Some of his other production credits include the albums Blaze of Glory by Jon Bon Jovi and End Of The Innocence by Don Henley. In our interview with Kortchmar , he talked about his production philosophy, which suited the introspective nature of this track:

    "Get the most out of the artists you're working for. And get something that's true to them and that represents them and is also catchy and is going to attract people - attract ears. So it's really just a matter of being true to the artist's original vision of himself, because I'm not one of these people that wants to be a svengali and wants to change somebody into something else."
  • Joel performed this song at the Grammy Awards ceremony in 1994, where it was up for Record of the Year (it lost to Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You"). Joel, backed by a large gospel choir on a set designed to look like a church, used the false ending about two-and-a-half minutes into the song as an opportunity to make a point: instead of waiting a beat and continuing the song, he stopped cold, looked at his watch and said, "Valuable advertising time going by... dollars." Joel later said that he was protesting because producers cut off Frank Sinatra's acceptance speech earlier in the telecast when Sinatra was given a Legend Award.
  • The video was directed by Andy Morahan, who also did Joel's clip for "The Downeaster Alexa." It was shot in Connecticut; the bridge scenes were done at the Providence & Worcester railroad bridge in Middletown, which crosses the Connecticut River. Joel's daughter, Alexa Ray, and wife, Christie Brinkley, appear in the video along the riverbank with Brinkley painting the album cover.

    Justin Bieber - PYD Lyrics



    PYD

  • This stripped-down Soul jam was released as the seventh promotional single from Justin's #MusicMondays series, a 10-week drive in which he unveiled a new tune every Sunday at midnight. The song finds him collaborating with R. Kelly as the pair share boasts about putting it down with their ladies. The Chicago crooner told Vibe magazine: "[Justin] just called me to do a song and it's hot. He wanted to go and do some R&B stuff so we got together and did that."
  • "PYD" is shorthand for "Put You Down" and is said to be a play off of Michael Jackson's "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)."
  • The song is the raunchiest cut that Bieber has recorded to date. It finds him promising to give his girl the "best you've ever had" and describing all of the places he would like to put her down, which include the:

    "Door to the wall
    Coffee table girl get ready
    From the stove to the countertop
    Dining room table."

    Kelly heats it up further on the second verse where he promises to be her "dope man in the bedroom."
  • Justin Bieber told The Hollywood Reporter of the song: "I was going for a modern Boyz II Men sound," he said. "I'm really influenced by R&B, but I love everybody -- from Michael Jackson to The Beatles to, like, Led Zeppelin and Korn."
  • Kelly told The Sun about this collaboration with Justin: "He's coming over into the R&B world and I welcomed him like 'what up!' We happened to be in the same hotel one day, and we played each other music for like two hours, we talked about getting together and two months later we did it."

    Paul Westerberg - Waiting For Somebody Lyrics

    All my life, waiting for somebody
    Ah-ha-ha, come and take my hand
    All my life, waiting for somebody
    Ah-ha-ha, whoa, yeah

    Down so long, doesn't really matter
    This downtown home, been kicked and I've been spurred
    You comin' along? It does't really matter
    I'll go it alone--doesn't even hurt

    I'm waitin' for the day, waitin' for the day that you come my way...

    I drove down deep, made a big decision
    I'm going to sleep--I'm going there alone
    I know damn well I'm tired of all this cryin'
    On my feet as far as I can tell

    Somebody... somebody... somebody... somebody... etc

    Waiting For Somebody

  • This song is on the Singles soundtrack. While upbeat, some believe the line "I'm going to sleep, I'm going there alone" refers to suicide, a frequent topic of Westerberg's oeuvre.
  • This appeared as a B-side to the single "World Class Fad."
