There Is No If Lyrics


Nothing I am
Nothing I dream
Nothing is new

Nothing I think or believe in or say
Nothing is true

It used to be so easy, I never even tried
Yeah, it used to be so easy
But the last day of summer, never felt so cold
The last day of summer, never felt so old
Never felt so

All that I have
All that I hold
All that is wrong

All that I feel for or trust in or love
All that is gone

It used to be so easy, I never even tried
Yeah, it used to be so easy
But the last day of summer, never felt so cold
The last day of summer, never felt so old
The last day of summer, never felt so cold
Never felt so

There Is No If Song Chart
  • In a 2000 interview with Pulse, Robert Smith said: "I think the only really depressing song on the album is 'There Is No If,' because in that one there really is no way out - everything goes wrong and then you die. I originally didn't want that song on the album, and I was loath to even sing it, but the others in the band really wanted it on there. I normally disregard the four-to-one votes, which are as meaningless in this band as they are in any dictatorship, but everyone who heard the song really liked it."
  • Lead singer Robert Smith was the only band member to play on this. He played all the instruments.
  • Smith didn't want this included on the Bloodflowers album, but gave in when the other four members of the band persisted. (thanks, Richard - Alva, OK)
  • The Cure retired this from live performances in 2002, perhaps due to Smith's dislike of the song.
  • The "if" of the title refers to the inevitability of death. In the song, Smith's lover frequently makes the apparent statement "if you die...so do I." This is, of course, paraphrasing the romantic clichè "I couldn't live without you." Smith's interprets the sentiment negatively, by emphasizing that they will indeed live without each other, and both they and their love will inevitably die.

    Power to the People Song Chart
  • Basement Jaxx has a deep connection to this song, which represents their core beliefs. "That's a really empowering song about humanity and for singing our connectivity and our interdependency with other human beings," Felix Buxton of the duo said in our 2014 interview .
  • Basement Jaxx have worked with big-name singers like Lily Allen, Dizzee Rascal and Kelis on their previous albums, but they deliberately avoided the familiar names for Junto. For this track, the Basement Jaxx pair of Simon Ratcliffe and Felix Buxton enlisted a group of children who'd been hanging around in the car park near their studio to provide the vocals.

    "The idea was to get back to the beginning of Basement Jaxx and just have everyone singing songs," Buxton told The Observer. "If music is real, not manipulated and manufactured, it needs to speak from a real place."
  • The album title, Junto, is the Spanish word for "together." It is pronounced "hoontoe."
  • Basement Jaxx released six new versions of the song on September 21, 2014 as part of International Peace Day, with proceeds going to charity. As part of a larger initiative, they made stems of the track available on the website powertothepeople.fm , where anyone can make a mix of the song. Artists and dancers were also invited to participate by contributing visual interpretations.
  • Niara Scarlett is the lead singer on this track, and is also credited as a co-writer. The UK singer has lent her voice to songs by Mel Blatt, Prophets Of Sound and many other acts.

    Why Can't I Be You? Lyrics


    You're so gorgeous I'll do anything
    I'll kiss you from your feet to where your head begins
    You're so perfect you're so right as rain
    You make me
    Make me, make me, make me hungry again

    Everything you do is irresistible
    Everything you do is simply kissable
    Why Can't I Be You?

    I'll run around in circles til I run out of breath
    I'll eat you all up
    Or I'll just hug you to death
    You're so wonderful
    Too good to be true
    You make me hungry for you

    Everything you do is simply delicate
    Everything you do is simply angelicate
    Why can't I be you?

    You turn my head when you turn around
    You turn the whole world upside down
    I'm smitten I'm bitten I'm hooked I'm cooked
    I'm stuck like glue
    You make me hungry for you

    Everything you do is simply dreamy
    Everything you do is suite delicious
    Why can't I be you?
    Why can't I be you?
    Why can't I be you?

    You're simply elegant

    Why Can't I Be You? Song Chart
  • During live performances, The Cure often used this song to play around with and incorporate different songs into the performance. These other songs have included "The Lovecats," "Fly Me To The Moon," "Young At Heart," and "Out Of Touch," among others. (thanks, Richard - Alva, OK)
  • The video clip to this song cleverly included some risqué word play, turning "Can't" into "Cu-t." When the members of the band are symbolizing the words "Why Can't I Be You" as the letters Y _ I B U, by shaping their bodies into the shape of these letters, the word "Can't," which is the only word that could not be symbolized by a letter, was instead represented by a large mouth, or "Pair of lips" turned sideways (i.e. a vagina). Thus, 'Y c-nt I B U.' The original film clip is nowadays often replaced with the film clip of the remix to this song which doesn't include this part of the clip. (thanks, Anthony - Tokyo, Japan)
  • This was the lead single from the band's first and only double album. The record was their first to enter the Billboard Top 40.
  • In a 1987 interview with Les Inrockuptibles, songwriter Robert Smith said that the title "is not to be taken generally, on the contrary it comes from a particular situation; I was in the middle of a tense discussion and these people around the table were looking at me as if I was going to make some ground breaking revelations, and I thought to myself "good God, why can't I be elsewhere? Why isn't someone else in my place?" I would've traded with anyone; I would've preferred to be that guy leaning at the bar than myself."
  • Smith has also said that the song was written as a keepsake for a 1985 visit to his Peruvian sponsored child, Aurora.

    Perfect Storm Lyrics


    If she was a drink
    She'd be a single-barrelled
    Bourbon on ice
    Smooth with a kick
    A chill and a burn all
    At the same time

    She's Sunday drive meets
    High speed chase
    She ain't just a song
    She's the whole mix tape
    She's so complicated
    That's the way God made her
    Sunshine mixed with
    A little hurricane

    And she destroys me in that t-shirt
    And I love her so much it hurts
    I never meant to fall like this
    She don't just rain she pours
    That girl right there's
    The Perfect Storm

    I know how to make her laugh
    Or blush, or mad at me
    But that's OK there ain't no one
    More beautiful angry

    And she loves just as deep
    As she goes when she's down
    The highs match the lows
    Can't have one without the other
    And I love her just the way
    God made her
    Sunshine mixed with
    A little hurricane

    And she destroys me in that t-shirt
    And I love her so much it hurts
    I never meant to fall like this
    But she don't just rain she pours
    That girl right there's
    The perfect storm

    She's the girl of a lifetime
    A guy like me spends his whole life
    Looking for, that girl right there's
    The perfect storm
    Woah-oh-oh
    Woah-oh-oh
    (She destroys me in that t-shirt)

    Perfect Storm Song Chart
  • This mid-tempo country rocker finds Paisley singing about a girl that he equates to a thunderstorm:

    And I love her so much it hurts
    I never meant to fall like this
    But she don't just rain, she pours
    That girl right there's the perfect storm
  • As Paisley sings the word "storm," his electric guitar rumbles like a clap of thunder. He told Rolling Stone Country that it was his intention to marry the riff with the song's lyrical content: "The 'Perfect Storm' guitar part sounds like thunder," he said. "It's got that crackle. Sometimes, the guitars and the lyrics come about at the same time."

    Paisley added that the guitar should always be compatible with the song. "I'm not one of those guys who's got a lot of riffs lying around," he said. "You get into trouble when you start talking your eye off of the song. You can have this riff that you think sounds so cool, but to whom? Are you speaking the language your fans want you to speak? You've got to picture that person as they're hearing the song for the first time. You don't get many tries in country music to hook 'em for the first time."
  • The Jim Shea-directed video features Paisley singing the ballad during a hurricane-like storm whilst photos of women slowly fly past the screen. Several weeks previously Paisley had asked fans for photos of themselves or someone special in a T-shirt. "Thanks so much for submitting your photos for the video," he said. "I stood in the pouring rain and sang this song over and over in slow motion for you. I hope you love it. I'm really happy with it. I love the video."

    Amongst those whose pictures were chosen were his wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, whose photo appears in the clip. Paisley tweeted her at the time:

    Congratulations @KimWilliamsPais Your dream has come true! You're in my music video! Don't scream

    Last Dance Lyrics


    I'm so glad you came I'm so glad
    You remembered to see how we're ending our last
    Dance together expectant too puctual but
    Prettier than ever I really believed that this time
    It's forever

    But older than me now more constant more real
    And the fur and the mouth and the innocence
    Turned to hair and contentment that hangs in
    Abasement a woman now standing where once
    There was only a girl

    I'm so glad you came I'm so glad you
    Remembered the walking through walls in the
    Heart of December the blindness of happiness
    Of falling down laughing and I really believed
    That this time was forever

    But Christmas falls late now flatter and colder
    And never as bright as when we used to fall all
    This in an instant before I can kiss you a woman
    Now standing were once there was only a girl

    I'm so glad that you came I'm so glad you
    Remembered to see how we're ending our last
    Dance together reluctantly cautiously but
    Prettier than ever I really believed that this time
    It's forever

    But Christmas falls late now flatter and colder
    And never as bright as when we used to fall and
    Even if we drink I don't think we would kiss in
    The way that we did when the woman was only a
    Girl

    Just Like Heaven Lyrics


    "Show me, show me, show me how you do that trick
    The one that makes me scream" she said
    "The one that makes me laugh" she said
    And threw her arms around my neck

    "Show me how you do it
    And I promise you I promise that
    I'll run away with you
    I'll run away with you"

    Spinning on that dizzy edge
    I kissed her face and kissed her head
    And dreamed of all the different ways I had
    To make her glow
    "Why are you so far away?" she said
    "Why won't you ever know that I'm in love with you
    That I'm in love with you"

    You
    Soft and only
    You
    Lost and lonely
    You
    Strange as angels
    Dancing in the deepest oceans
    Twisting in the water
    You're just like a dream
    You're just like a dream

    Daylight licked me into shape
    I must have been asleep for days
    And moving lips to breathe her name
    I opened up my eyes

    And found myself alone, alone
    Alone above a raging sea
    That stole the only girl I loved
    And drowned her deep inside of me

    You
    Soft and lonely
    You
    Lost and lonely
    You

    Just Like Heaven Song Chart
  • This song is about a dreamy day near the seashore with a loved one. Lead singer Robert Smith was brought up in the town of Crawley in Southeast England, which is about 40 miles from Beachy Head (a cliff and notorious suicide hotspot). (thanks, Wim - Brussels, Belgium)
  • According to Rolling Stone magazine, this was cut at a vineyard in the South of France, and is Robert Smith's favorite Cure song. The band's girlfriends hung out at the sessions, which influenced the music: "The girls would sit on the sofa in the back of the control room and give the songs marks out often," Smith said. "So there was a really big female input."
  • The version released as a single was remixed by Bob Clearmountain. He has worked with The Rolling Stones and Bruce Springsteen, among others.
  • The video featured a cameo by Robert Smith's then girlfriend and soon-to-be wife, Mary. (thanks, Richard - Alva, OK)
  • The original demo of this song was titled "Shivers."
  • In the November, 2003 issue of Blender magazine, Robert Smith said: "In 1987, my wife, Mary, and I lived in a small two-bedroom flat in North London. The other room was my music room. Just about the only discipline I had in my life was self-imposed. I set myself a regimen of writing 15 days a month; otherwise I'd have just got up in mid-afternoon and watched TV until the pubs opened, then gone out drinking. I knew as soon as I'd written it that it was a good pop song. Although I didn't realize it at the time, the structure is very similar to 'Another Girl, Another Planet,' by The Only Ones, which I can still vividly remember hearing on the radio late at night in the mid-'70s. The main difference is that as the song progressed, I introduced some different chord changes, which give it that slightly melancholic feeling. The song is about hyperventilating - kissing and fainting to the floor. Mary dances with me in the video because she was the girl, so it had to be her. The idea is that one night like that is worth 1,000 hours of drudgery."

  • The first single from Cavalera Conspiracy's Pandemonium album are about the kamikaze suicide aircraft attacks by Japanese pilots during the closing stages of the Pacific campaign of World War II. Max Cavalera explained to Loudwire : "This song is about the Japanese pilots and their fervor to commit suicide for their country."
  • 'Kamikaze' is a Japanese word meaning 'divine wind.' it refers to the providential typhoons in 1274 and 1281, which baled Mongolian invasion fleets under Kublai Khan. During World War II, it was applied to the suicide aircraft attacks under Vice Admiral Onishi in the Pacific between October 1944 and January 1945. Around 3,860 kamikaze pilots gave their lives in attacks when their bomb-loaded fighters crashed into Allied naval vessels. It is estimated that about 19% of kamikaze attacks managed to hit a ship.

    The Norwegian band A-Ha had a 1988 UK Top 40 hit with "The Blood That Moves the Body," which was about the Japanese kamikaze attacks.

    Do That to Me One More Time Song Chart
  • Many of Captain & Tennille's hits, including their other chart-topper "Love Will Keep Us Together," were written by the team of Howard Greenfield and Neil Sedaka. "Do That to Me One More Time," however, was written by Toni Tennille. She also wrote the duo's sexually charged 1974 hit "The Way I Want To Touch You."
  • Daryl Dragon (The Captain) and Toni Tennille were such a wholesome couple that they had their own variety show on ABC from 1976-1977. In this song, however, Tennille is clearly singing about foreplay, although ambiguously enough to keep the censors at bay.

    The song was a huge hit, reaching #1 US in February 1980. The following year, another wholesome singer took a lascivious turn when Olivia Newton-John went to #1 with "Physical."
  • Captain & Tennille left their longtime label A&M and signed with Casablanca for the Make Your Move album. Toni Tennille didn't think much of this song when she wrote it, but when she played it for Casablanca head Neil Bogart, he heard the hit potential right away and insisted that they record it.
  • This was featured in a 2001 TV commercial for Sprint PCS cellular service. In the spot, Captain & Tennille sing this on a football field while a team is practicing. We learn that an assistant, who was not using Sprint PCS, misheard "The coach wants a backup for O'Neil" as "The coach wants The Captain and Tennille."

    Feelings of fighting
    The pain much the sign of define
    The fortress of my soul
    No one can on rest in me
    Or my current, or more?
    No one fight alone.

    Is that depending on the wall
    The discuss through the always remains
    So many time remain
    In the distant cry!

    Never again!

    Darkness in back from me

    The stars when, will shine against some day!

    Stormless and sadness
    At least through the current of feel

    Bloodline the pathfire steel to fulfill
    Any worst can ran in to the light

    Follow! Look into my eye
    Much to kill, unite revenge
    Oh but some time remain

    So it ain't like I'm braggin' just join the paddywagon cause
    I ain't 2 proud 2 beg, I ain't 2 proud 2 beg

    Ain't 2 Proud 2 Beg Song Chart
  • This was the first Top 40 hit for TLC. It introduced the group and explained who represented each letter: Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes, and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas.
  • This contains samples of "Escape-ism" (James Brown), "Jungle Boogie" (Kool & the Gang), "School Boy Crush" (AWB), "Fly Robin Fly" (Silver Convention), and "Take Me to the Mardi Gras" (Bob James).
  • The video made sure to introduce each singer. When each girl sang her part, her name flashed on the screen. Like many of their songs, T-Boz sang the lyrics, Left Eye did the rap, and Chilli sang on the chorus.
  • This is about sex. They made it clear, however, that they advocated safe sex, by prominently displaying condoms. Lopes wore one over her left eye in their early days.
  • This is not the same song as the Temptations classic of the same name. In that song, a man swallows his pride and begs his girl to come back to him. In this, the girls state that they are not afraid to ask a man for sex.
  • It took a long time for radio stations to figure out what this song was about, but when they did, a lot of them censored the line, "Two inches or a yard, rock hard or if it's sagging - I ain't too proud to beg." The line was part of Left Eye's rap.
  • This was written by Dallas Austin, except for Left Eye's rap which, like the majority of what she sang, she wrote herself. (thanks, Janean - Cincinnati, OH)
  • The Ooooooohhh...On the TLC Tip album sold over 3 million copies. Their next one sold 5 million, but TLC still managed to go broke and had to file for bankruptcy in 1995. Their contract paid them only 7% of revenue from album sales, which wasn't enough to cover their expenses when split three ways.

    Don't Shoot Lyrics


    Don't Shoot Song Chart
  • On August 9, 2014, an unarmed 18-year-old black youth, Michael Brown, and his friend, Dorian Johnson, were walking on the 2900 block of Canfield Drive in Ferguson, Missouri. A white policeman, Darren Wilson, ordered the pair to move off the street and onto the pavement. An altercation took place and Wilson fired six shots at Brown, fatally wounding him. The tragedy prompted a series of stand-offs between activists, Ferguson locals and cops as well as much coverage and debate in the United States media.

    The Game penned this protest song dedicated to Michael Brown, in the wake of the shooting. He was joined by Diddy, Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, Diddy, Fabolous, Wale, DJ Khaled, Swizz Beatz, Yo Gotti, Curren$y, Problem, King Pharaoh and the R&B super-group TGT (Tyrese, Ginuwine and Tank). "The issues in Ferguson really hit home for me, and I feel compelled to use my musical platform to address this," Game told Rolling Stone. "I am a black man with kids of my own that I love more than anything, and I cannot fathom a horrific tragedy like Michael Brown's happening to them. This possibility has shaken me to my core. That is why this song must be made and why it was so easy for so many of my friends to come together and unite against the injustice."
  • All the proceeds from sales of the song went to the Michael Brown Memorial Fund.

    Chariots of Fire - Titles Song Chart
  • This is a piano piece written and performed by Greek composer Evangelos Papathanassiou. "Vangelis" was a lot easier to pronounce.
  • Prior to his work on "Chariots of Fire," Vangelis was best-known for his work with Aphrodite's Child (a band that also featured the "singing sofa" Demis Roussos) and the duo Jon and Vangelis ("Jon" was Jon Anderson of Yes). (thanks, Geoff - Morecambe, England)
  • On the original release, the name of the song was "Titles." Two months later, the name was changed to "Chariots of Fire - Titles" (thanks, Brad Wind - Miami, FL)
  • This was written for the 1981 movie about two runners in the 1924 Olympics. It was used in a classic scene where they are running in slow motion. The scene has been spoofed many times, usually with this music used to complete the joke.
  • Not long after the soundtrack's release, Vangelis admitted his total inability to read or write music. He wrote this one literally playing by ear. (thanks, S.D. - Denver, CO)

    Bubblegum Song Chart
  • This uptempo Jim Beanz and Timbaland produced tune finds DeRulo paying tribute to a girl with a large posterior.

    Got me bout to break my neck, tell me how you pop like that
    You do it like it ain't no sweat, I've never seen a bubble so fat
    You do it all day in the mirror, you practice all day in the mirror


    The booty enthusiast paid tribute to a stripper's butt on his previous single "Wiggle."
  • Young Money rapper Tyga drops a freaky verse in which he declares the way the girl drops her ass "make a grown man crazy."
  • Bubblegum was a genre of popular music popular in the late sixties and early seventies designed to appeal to children and young teenagers, who blew bubblegum. The Archies had the most successful bubblegum song in 1969 with "Sugar, Sugar." DeRulo's PG-13 ode to a girl with a "ghetto booty" is a million miles from those innocent pop tunes.

    Jolly Green Giant Lyrics


    In duh valley of duh jolly (Ho - ho - ho)

    Heard about the Jolly Green Giant (potatoes)
    He's so big and mean (artichoke hearts)
    He stands there laughin' with his hands on his hips
    And then he hits you with a can of beans

    He lives down there in his valley (Brussels sprouts)
    The cat stands tall and green (spinach)
    Well, he ain't no prize, and there's no women his size
    And that's why the cat's so mean
    One day he left His valley pad
    I mean to say this cat was mad
    Now listen 'round He wasn't gone long
    And then he ran into an Amazon
    Well, this changed his whole complexion (broccoli)
    He had never seen such a beautiful sight (corn)
    Well, he looked at her
    And she looked at him
    And she almost passed out from fright
    He looked at her thought, "what a dilly"
    He touched her once She slapped him silly
    This was something He had never sensed
    He looked at her As she commenced
    Now listen, pal This ain't no fluke
    I can't see goin' with a big green kook"

    You've heard about the Jolly Green Giant (eggplant)
    Don't let his troubles cross your mind (celery stalks)
    He couldn't get Sally, so went back to his valley
    The cat was color-blind

  • The song features guest verses from former member of the grime group Meridian Crew JME and East London Grime MC Tempa T.

    The Stripper Lyrics


    The Stripper Song Chart
  • This is an instrumental song that is usually associated with a strip tease.
  • This was used for the TV program Burlesque. It accompanied a scene featuring a woman stripping off screen while two men argued on screen. This gave it a reputation as a song to take your clothes off to.
  • Rose wrote this in the last 10 minutes of a recording session in 1958. He didn't have a name for it, and referred to it as "a funny piece of music with no title." Later that year, Rose was asked to re-record the song "Ebb Tide" to help promote the movie "Sweet Bird of Youth" (with Paul Newman and Geraldine Page), which he quickly did, but the movie studio needed a B-side for the single, so this song, which was an unnamed, unreleased cut, was pulled from the vaults, given a name ("The Stripper") and placed on the B-side of the "Ebb Tide" single.
  • Los Angeles DJ Robert Q. Lewis popularized this by playing it on the air for 45 minutes straight and playing it whenever a listener requested ANY song.
  • When Rose performed in the Royal Albert Hall years later, he had no intention of including this in his repertoire, but he played it anyway after someone in the audience yelled out a request for it. Rose apologized to Albert Hall management afterwards.
  • Rose did the score to over 1000 television programs, most notably the series The Red Skelton Show, Bonanza, Little House on the Prairie, and Highway to Heaven. He died in 1990 at the age of 80. (thanks, Brad Wind - Miami, FL, for above 5)

  • Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine wrote this with Australian singer-songwriter Sia (David Guetta's "Titanium," Rihanna's, "Diamonds"). Guitarist James Valentine told Billboard magazine: "Living here in Los Angeles we've known Sia for a long time, back from when she was just an artist, before her second act as, like, the most brilliant pop songwriter of all time, so it was really cool just to work with her."
  • This features No Doubt's Gwen Stefani. The Californian band were an influence on the Maroon 5 band members in their early days when they were performing as Kara's Flowers playing grungy garage music. "It's cool for all of us to have her on the record," said Valentine. "And Adam won't shut up about how cool she is as a person. A lot of times when you meet your idols it's a letdown, but it's the opposite case with Gwen, apparently."

    Adam Levine and Gwen Stefani also have another connection - both are coaches on season 7 of The Voice.
  • Stefani and Levine sang this on the Grammy Awards in 2015.

    You went to school to learn, girl
    Things you never, never knew before

    Like I before E except after C

    And why two plus two makes four
    Now now now, I'm gonna teach you
    Teach you, teach you

    All about love, dear
    All about love

    Sit yourself down, take a seat
    All you gotta do is repeat after me.

    ABC
    Easy as
    One, two, three
    Or simple as
    Do re mi
    ABC, one, two, three, baby, you and me girl!
    ABC
    Easy as
    One, two, three
    Or simple as
    Do re mi
    ABC, one, two, three, baby, you and me!

    Come on, let me love you just a little bit!
    Come on, let me love you just a little bit!
    I'm a going to teach how to sing it out!
    Michael: Come on, come on, come on
    Let me show you what it's all about!

    Reading, writing and arithmetic
    Are the branches of the learning tree

    But without the roots of love every day, girl

    Your education ain't complete
    T-T-T-Teacher's gonna show you

    Show you, show you

    How to get an A!

    Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah!

    Spell "me" "you"
    Add the two!
    Listen to me baby, that's all you gotta do!

    Oh, ABC
    As easy as
    One, two, three
    Or simple as
    Do re mi
    ABC, one, two, three, baby, you and me girl!
    ABC
    It's easy,
    It's like counting up to three (One, two, three)
    Sing a simple melody (Do re mi, ABC)
    That's how easy love can be!

    Sit down, girl!
    I think I love you!
    No!
    Get up, girl!
    Show me what you can do!

    Shake it, shake it, baby, come on now!
    Shake it, shake it, baby, ooh ooh!
    Shake it shake it, baby, huh!
    One, two, three, baby, ooh ooh!
    ABC, baby, nah nah!
    Do re mi, baby, huh!
    That's how easy love can be.

    ABC, it's easy
    It's like counting up to three (One, two, three)
    Sing a simple melody (Do re mi, ABC)
    That's how easy love can be!
    (I'm not gonna teach you how to sing it out)
    Come on come on come on let me show you what it's all about
    ABC, it's easy
    It's like counting up to three (One, two, three)
    Sing a simple melody (Do re mi, ABC)
    That's how easy love can be!
    (I'm not gonna teach you how to sing it out)
    Sing it out, sing it, sing it, sing it
    Oh baby, ABC, it's easy
    It's like counting up to three (One, two, three)
    Sing a simple melody (Do re mi, ABC)
    That's how easy love can be!

    You Tell Me Where Lyrics


    Take a breather
    They came for Caesar
    But I don't think he's here

    Disiderata
    Is that your name now
    Glad you came out

    You've proved your poison
    Is more than noise and
    The joy's addictive
    Although restrictive
    Fair baby beware or not are we square

    Old friends from last call
    Searching a glass for
    Some famous last words
    Let from the master

    With all your shit talking
    And all your blue stocking
    And hit the spell check
    You want some hell check?
    Direct your own pace
    You need your own place

    So You Tell Me Where
    To be I'll be there
    A little seasick
    But feel you've fallen
    And now it's crawling
    Me I'm hauling

    Old friends from last call
    Searching a glass for
    Some famous last words
    Let from the master

    You see my range, you could change me
    If you wanted to
    Just rearrange a few pieces and run
    If there's no way but the high road to save me
    If that's not easy so leave me alone

    Think I could change to become what you want me
    To think we could finally be done

    So you tell me where to be, I'll be there

    You Tell Me Where Song Chart
  • This song was inspired by an a capella version of Neil Young's "After The Goldrush," by the English group Prelude, which was a hit in the early 1970s. The New Pornagraphers' A.C. Newman told Spin magazine: "It's got this thick wall of harmonies, which I kept coming back to when we were doing the song."

    Once ["You Tell Me Where"] gets to the halfway point, the vocals just go crazy," he added: "It's me and Kathryn [Calder] and Neko [Case] and Kelly Hogan, and it becomes this wall. I thought, 'I want it to sound like this crazy '70s choir.'"
  • Another inspiration for the song was Scott Miller, the late mainman of 1980s power pop band Game Theory, who passed away in 2013. "His sense of melody and songwriting had a big influence on me," Newman told Spin. "People have said that they think I'm influenced by Big Star, but really I'm more influenced by Game Theory, who were influenced by Big Star. I got it in my head that I would try to write something that musically was a tip of the hat to Game Theory, and that was 'You Tell Me Where.'"

    "It started out like, 'I'm gonna write something like Game Theory,'" he added. "Then it gets to the point where I'm saying, 'Now I want this to sound like an a cappella group from the '70s.' You don't finish songs like this, but it's a good way to start songs."
