Chloroform Lyrics


I don't always tell the truth
They don't mind it if you're tall where I'm from
Anyone I find intrusive
You won't bother if you choose me

I don't only think of you
Eyes can tell I'm insecure; Chloroform
I would rather stand if you stay
Why would I lie to you?

[Chorus]
My love, my love, my love, my love is,
My love, my love, my love is,
My love, my love, my love, my love is,
Cruel

Buckle up, we'll chase each other
It's not a lot it's just enough to matter
Anyway you want the truth is
I will marry you on Tuesday

I don't always tell the truth
If you want it you could lose, don't bother
I don't like it if you miss me
Why would I long for you?

My love, my love, my love, my love is,
My love, my love, my love is,
My love, my love, my love, my love is,
Cruel

My love, my love, my love, my love is,
My love, my love, my love is,
My love, my love, my love, my love is,
Cruel

Would I long for you?
Is it up to you?
Is it up to you?
Ah ah ah ah

Chloroform
  • Chloroform is a slightly hazardous organic compound with an acrid, sickly sweet smell and taste, which sends people off to sleep. The Scottish obstetrician, Dr. James Simpson, discovered its anesthetic properties in 1847 during an experiment with friends. The first baby to be delivered by chloroform was one Wilhelmina Carstairs, however it was only when Queen Victoria allowed herself to be chloroformed by Dr. John Snow to diminish the pains of childbirth when giving birth to her seventh child, Prince Leopold, that it became an established anesthetic.

    We recommend that you don't use chloroform at home as it does does cause some unwanted side effects. After waking, chloroformed patients often suffer from dizziness, brutal headaches, and bouts of vomiting.

    Phoenix vocalist Thomas Mars is singing on this slinky ballad of a cruel, toxic love with the numbing properties of chloroform.
  • The pastoral, dreamlike performance video was directed by Mars' film-maker wife, Sophia Coppola (Lost In Translation, The Virgin Suicides). Speaking about the clip, Coppola explained: "I wanted it to be a fantasy of young girls fixated on a band they love and try to capture that feeling I remember of seeing bands when I was a kid, when you could totally lose it… and to play up the band as close but out of reach. It's a fantasy audience, all young, pretty girls."

    He Thinks He'll Keep Her Lyrics


    She makes his coffee, she makes his bed
    She does the laundry, she keeps him fed
    When she was twenty one she wore her mother's lace
    She said, "Forever," with a smile upon her face

    She does the carpool, she P.T.A.'s
    Doctors and dentists, she drives all day
    When she was twenty nine she delivered number three
    And ev'ry Christmas card showed a perfect family

    Ev'rything runs right on time
    Years of practice and design
    Spit and polish till it shines
    He Thinks He'll Keep Her
    Ev'rything is so benign
    The safest place you'll ever find
    God forbid you change your mind
    He thinks he'll keep her

    She packs his suitcase, she sits and waits
    With no expression upon her face
    When she was thirty-six she met him at the door
    She said, "I'm sorry, I don't love you any more"

    Ev'rything runs right on time
    Years of practice and design
    Spit and polish till it shines
    He thinks he'll keep her
    Ev'rything is so benign
    The safest place you'll ever find
    God for bid you change your mind
    He thinks he'll keep her

    For fifteen years she had a job and not one raise in pay
    Now she's in the typing pool at minimum wage

    Ev'rything runs right on time
    Years of practice and design
    Spit and polish till it shines
    He thinks he'll keep her
    Ev'rything is so benign
    The safest place you'll ever find
    At least until you change your mind
    (He thinks he'll keep her)

    He Thinks He'll Keep Her
  • This song was inspired by a 1970s Geritol TV commercial (which would now be regarded as extremely sexist and patronizing), in which a husband cites his wife's many attributes, summarizing with, "I think I'll keep her."
  • This song is about a woman who lives a typical, anodyne life devoted to her husband and family, but then after 15 years becomes fed up with the monotony and leaves him. Carpenter wrote the song with Don Schlitz, a Country music songwriting stalwart who wrote the Kenny Rogers hit "The Gambler."
  • With a more pop-oriented sound and an influx of female stars, country music went mainstream in the early '90s, leading to a 2-hour CBS special in 1993 called The Women of Country. This song, with its message of female empowerment, was a showcase song, with Carpenter performing it with Emmylou Harris, Trisha Yearwood, Suzy Bogguss, Pam Tillis , Patty Loveless, and Kathy Mattea.

    Carpenter, who was raised in the Northeast and graduated from Brown University, was hailed as a new kind of Country singer - one that could appeal to an audience far outside the typical fan base of the genre.

    No One Likes a Fat Pop Star Lyrics


    No One Likes a Fat Pop Star
  • This lighthearted song is a riposte to the tabloids' reporting of Williams' battles with weight problems. In the middle of the singer's Take the Crown tour, a newspaper printed some really unflattering pictures of him performing.
  • The song includes a verse where Williams sings, operatically,

    "Now you've upset me I feel like a snack.
    A packet of Minstrels, a pie and a nap
    So what's wrong with that?"

    "Fat Pop Star started as a joke," co-writer Guy Chambers told The Daily Telegraph. "I came up with the chorus melody, which is very operatic, and Rob can really sing that kind of music. When we performed it for the first time the whole crowd spontaneously stood up and started clapping. It was great seeing the shock of the public following that lyric and to hear him singing like Pavarotti."

    Bust A Move Lyrics


    This here's a tale for all the fellas
    Tryin' to do what those ladies tell us
    Get shot down cause ya over-zealous
    Play hard to get females get jealous
    Okay smarty go to a party
    Girls are scantily clad and showin' body
    A chick walks by you wish you could sex her
    But you're standing on the wall like you was Poindexter
    Next days function high class luncheon
    Food is served and you're stone-cold munchin'
    Music comes on people start to dance
    But then you ate so much you nearly split your pants
    A girl starts walking guys start gawking
    Sits down next to you and starts talking
    Says she wants to dance cause she likes to groove
    So come on fatso and just Bust A Move

    Just bust a move

    You're on a mission and your wishin'
    Someone could cure your lonely condition
    Lookin' for love in all the wrong places
    No fine girls just ugly faces
    From frustration first inclination
    Is to become a monk and leave the situation
    But every dark tunnel has a light of hope
    So don't hang yourself, with a celibate rope
    Your movie's showin', so you're goin'
    Could care less about the five you're blowin'
    Theater gets dark just to start the show
    Then ya spot a fine woman sittin' in your row
    She's dressed in yellow, she says "Hello,
    come sit next to me you fine fellow."
    You run over there without a second to lose
    And what comes next hey bust a move

    You want it, you got it,
    You want it, baby you got it (Just bust a move)
    You want it, you got it,
    You want it, baby you got it

    In this city ladies look pretty
    Guys tell jokes so they can seem witty
    Tell a funny joke just to get some play
    Then you try to make a move and she says, "No way"
    Girls are fakin' goodness sakin'
    They want the man who brings home the bacon
    Got no money and you got no car
    Then you got no women and there you are
    Some girls are sadistic, materialistic
    Lookin' for a man makes them opportunistic
    They're lyin' on a beach perpetrating a tan
    So a brother with the money can be their man
    So on the beach you're strollin' real high rollin'
    Everything you have is yours and not stolen
    A girl runs up with somethin' to prove
    So don't just stand there bust a move

    If you want it, you got it
    You want it, baby you got it (Just bust a move)
    You want it, you got it,
    You want it, baby you got it (Break it down for me fellas)

    Your best friend Harry has a brother Larry
    In five days from now he's gonna marry
    He's hopin' you can make it there if you can
    'Cause in the ceremony you'll be the best man
    You say neat-o, check your libido
    And roll to the church in your new tuxedo
    The bride walks down just to start the wedding
    And there's one more girl you won't be getting
    So you start thinkin' then you start blinking
    The bridesmaid looks and thinks that you're winking
    She thinks your kinda cute so she winks back
    And now your feelin' really firm 'cause the girl is stacked
    Reception's jumpin' bass is pumpin'
    You look at the girl and your heart starts thumpin'
    Says she wants to dance to a different groove
    Now you know what to do G bust a move

    If you want it, you got it
    You want it, baby you got it (Just bust a move)
    You want it, you got it,
    You want it, baby you got it (Break it down for me fellas)

    Bust A Move
  • We can thank Young MC for popularizing the phrase "Bust A Move," which means to take action of some kind. The song follows a guy who seems hapless with women, but somehow keeps getting lucky. In the first first, he busts a move by dancing with a girl who shows interest. Later, he considers becoming a monk but meets a girl in a movie theater. At the end of the song, he's the best man at a wedding, and when a bridesmaid shows interest, he gets to bust a different kind of move when she wants to "dance to a different groove." It's all good fun, and it helped make rap music acceptable for a much wider audience.
  • Flea from The Red hot Chili Peppers played bass on this song and appeared in the video, but he didn't reap the rewards. He explained to Bass Player magazine: "I have a bitter taste in my mouth about that, because I feel as though I got ripped off. The bass line I wrote ended up being a major melody of the tune, and I felt I deserved songwriting credit and money because it was a #1 hit. They sold millions of records, and I got $200! Afterwards, my lawyer told them, 'You should throw down Flea some cash,' but the record company said, 'We told him exactly what to play.' No one was even in the room at the time but me and the engineer! It was ridiculous, but I learned from it."
  • Young MC's real name is Marvin Young. He wrote this and also composed Tone Loc's hits "Wild Thing" and "Funky Cold Medina."
  • This was Young MC's only big hit, although he did have another US Top 40 with "Principal's Office." He was one of the first to write catchy, fun rap songs that crossed over to the world of Pop. Young MC recalled to Rolling Stone: "People looked at rap and hard rock as the type of music that you slam your door after you argue with your parents, and bang your head in defiance. My record wasn't necessarily rebellious, but it was clever enough to grab in a decent segment of people that didn't listen to rap music."
  • This won a Grammy for Best Rap Performance. It was only the second year the category existed, and the next year it was eliminated to recognize Rap Solo and Rap Duo Or Group performances. The previous years' winner was DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince for "Parents Just Don't Understand."
  • The main sample in this song is a loop from a song called "Found A Child" by a Seattle Funk group called Ballin' Jack. Their song came out in 1970, and it's amazing that it took 19 years for a rapper to boost it - the 15 seconds of bass, drums and vocal stabs on the song makes a perfect foundation for a rap hit in an era when sampling was widespread.
  • Young MC performs this in the film Up In The Air, where George Clooney plays a guy who is constantly traveling. Clooney crashes a convention at the hotel where he's staying, and Young MC is the performer. These private functions are lucrative gigs for artists who have fallen out of the spotlight (and for some still in it), but they are rarely portrayed in movies.
  • A bunch of commercials have featured this song. Among them, a 2013 spot for Payday candy bars, an Old Navy commercial that same year ("Bust in to Old Navy's huge gift sale...") and a 2014 commercial for Southwest Airlines that shows a woman dancing to the song at a wedding.
  • In the 2016 episode of The Big Bang Theory, "The Positive Negative Reaction," the characters Raj and Leonard sing this in karaoke. A tipsy Sheldon proclaims, "I'm being musically encouraged to bust a move. If I knew what that meant, I might just do it."

    Swings Both Ways Lyrics


    Swings Both Ways
  • This is the title track of Robbie Williams' second Swing album. The British singer previously released a similarly flavored record in 2001 with Swing When You're Winning. Williams' love of Swing is not an affectation; the former Take That singer has always listened to the Jazz genre because his father was a fan. "It's very camomile, isn't it? I suppose it was a safe place when I was growing up," he told The Daily Telegraph. "Also my dad left a load of records when he left home – all these brilliantly crafted standards. Nat King Cole was his favourite. And I've always been in love with Dean Martin. And Ella Fitzgerald, Mel Tormé, and of course, Frank."
  • The song is a duet with Rufus Wainwright, who is also a fan of the swing era. The openly gay American singer recorded an entire album of songs made famous by Judy Garland. The pair met through Williams' songwriter partner Chambers, who was working on Wainwright's album at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in LA. "I had a week with Rufus on my own," Chambers told The Daily Telegraph. "I knew he had a big crush on Rob and wanted to meet him, and Rob is a fan of Rufus and has covered one of his songs. We had dinner together and we wrote 'Swings Both Ways' the following afternoon."
  • The tongue-in-cheek lyrics were influenced from the time Robbie joined Take That as a 16-year-old. He recalled to The Sun: "When I joined Take That, we toured gay clubs for 18 months. It always used to confuse me and make me laugh when a lot of the gay people I was hanging out with were insistent that everybody was gay. (Adopting a camp voice) 'Oh, well you know about her.' 'What?' 'Oh, yes... definitely. And she helps out when the team's short – do you know what I mean?'"

    "According to my manager at the time, I definitely swung both ways," Williams continued. "And I wouldn't judge anybody for judging us back then. So for me, the start of the song was a homage to being a teenager in those clubs and being told, 'oh yes, everybody's gay. Everybody swings both ways.' I'm really proud of that song."
  • So does Robbie actually swing both ways? "I have a lot of gay friends,' Chambers told The Daily Telegraph, "and a typical question is, 'Is Rob a little bit… or is he actually?' and I always say the same thing, which is, 'No, I' ve never seen any evidence of it.' But he likes playing with the ambiguity."
  • Williams and Wainwright recorded the song at Abbey Road Studios with an 80-piece orchestra.
  • Swings Both Ways was the 1,000th #1 album in the history of the UK charts. The Swing theme of the set is appropriate, since Frank Sinatra topped the first UK album chart in July 1956 with Songs For Swingin' Lovers. Williams said the fact that both the first and 1,000th chart-topper was a swing album showed the genre's long-lasting appeal. "I think in these days, with people taking their clothes off and doing drugs and being cynical in whatever way possible to get attention, and good luck to them, I think there is a market for middle-of-the-road entertainment," he said. "It harks back to a simpler time."

    It's cold in here feels like everything's upside down
    I can feel you talking but I can barley make out the sound
    I been kicking around these parts, feels like a year
    I'm gonna change this world if I ever get out of here
    She wants to dress me in pink, paints my bedroom blue
    And I just laugh to myself, 'cause only I know the truth
    This love is my only emotion
    Haven't learned any fear any pain
    It's kind of funny with all this commotion
    I guess they've got me to blame
    And they don't even know My Name
    They don't even know my name

    Well I've never felt so ready, think it's finally time
    'Cause that big old world is waiting, and it's mine all mine
    Just then everything got real quiet, it got real bright
    And a man took my hand said don't worry, your momma's gonna be alright
    Then he opened the gate and I followed him in
    Said you can wait right here, 'til it's your turn again
    And his love is the one true emotion
    Heaven knows no fear no pain
    I never got to set my wheels in motion
    They loved me just the same
    And they didn't even know name
    Didn't even know my name
    You loved me just the same
    And you didn't even know my name

    Get Me Some of That
  • Thomas' father Rhett Akins teamed up with Michael Carter and Cole Swindell to write this song. The narrator uses a popular expression to describe his desire to pick up a girl. He sings:

    "I bet your kiss is a soul saver, my favorite flavor, want it now and later.
    I never seen nothin' I wanted so bad.
    Girl, I gotta get me, gotta get me some of that."

    Thomas said in a cut by cut just before the release of It Goes Likes This: "I did not write this song, but the reason I recorded it was because of the catchy melody it has. I can' t wait for everyone to hear it on the record. It's also one of the most recent ones I cut for the record and I think everyone will want to shake their money-maker on this one."
  • The music video, which follows two people as they fall in love at a party, was directed by TK McKamy, who also worked with Rhett on his visual for "It Goes Like This." Rhett's wife (Lauren Gregory Akins) has a role when at the end of the clip when the singer notices her from across the room.
  • Rhett Atkins told the story of the song to Roughstock : "I had been friends with Cole and Michael for a long time," he recalled. "My association with Luke (Laird, producer) is how I met those guys. Actually, Cole used to open for me around 2008/2009 when I'd play in college towns in Georgia. Cole would open and do a little acoustic set before I played. I knew Cole from back then, and I knew Michael from Luke. They write for Sony, who I write for, and we'd been talking about it for a while … how we need to get together and do something. They had written a few Spring Break songs with Luke, and then they had Craig Campbell's single ('Outta My Head'). Then they started getting cuts on Luke's Crash My Party record. So we all got together. "

    "Cole and Michael played me the first three lines of the chorus," Akins continued. "They said we just kind of came up with this out on the road with Luke this weekend, but that's all we have. When they played me those lines, I was like I'm in -- big time! That sounds like a smash. We just sat there and hammered it out for the rest of the afternoon. Then we went and demoed it a week later."
  • This wasn't specifically written for Thomas Rhett. "We thought his record was done," Akins told Roughstock. "We pitched it to a few people, and they passed on it, just like 'It Goes Like This' was passed on by some pretty big artists. We were scratching our heads going we think this song is so awesome, so why is it being passed on? I think it's just one of those things where a song is meant to be where it's meant to be. Both of these songs I truly believe were meant for Thomas Rhett. I think that's why they were both passed on by a bunch of people. I sent it to him, and he called me saying, 'Dad, I'm cutting that! That's a smash!' He went in and cut it with Luke Laird, and they just killed it. It sounds great. Thomas Rhett sounds great. It's fun. It gets you moving. I think it's exactly what Thomas Rhett needed for his follow-up single to 'It Goes Like This.'"

    Paint the streets in white
    Death is the standard breach for a complex prize
    I think it's sweet of you and your parents are proud
    But I would expect it from anyone now to protect life's indigenous sound...

    Worship, play, play (3x)
    Worship, play, Worship, play///Worship-Worship///
    Play and worship, Play, Play (3x)
    Play and worship, Play///Worship-Worship///

    How the streets they swell
    While the animals make their way through the crowds
    If you keep listening you can hear it for miles
    And trust everyone quicker with every faint smile....

    Worship, play, play
    Worship, play, Worship, play

    And the crowd goes wild
    And the camera makes you seasick
    God it's so sweet of you and I know you're proud
    And the car bomb hits quick click, click, click, faint smile...

    It's the same sound... it's the same, same... sound....

    And the crowd goes wild
    And the camera makes you seasick
    God it's so sweet of you and you know I'm proud
    And the car bomb tick ticks with the same sounds
    It's the same sound
    With the same sound... Hexagram

    Hexagram
  • A hexagram is a potent symbol of the macrocosm (God, the Universe or Higher Energies) and of the relationship between the macrocosm and the microcosm (Humankind, the Earth or Manifest Energies). In its regular form, it is drawn as two intersecting equilateral triangles, and is most commonly seen as the Judaic Star of David.

    Misery Chain
  • Chris Cornell recorded this song for the soundtrack of the pre-Civil War film 12 Years a Slave. The movie tells the true story of Solomon Northrup, an African American freeman from the North who was abducted and sold into slavery. "I was moved by this film and the story in a way that transcends any film experience I have ever had," said Cornell. "I was inspired to write a hundred different songs, but finally landed on one based on what I believe is an extremely important message I took from this man's journey. Compassion, basic human rights and love must be our priorities above race, religion or commerce. Every generation needs a reminder of that simple idea."

    Chapter Four Lyrics


    (Conceived) Give me your hand (and born was one of light)
    Blood is spilt and man will follow (Rain and dark)
    Infernal man,(rain and dark, the other born black night) punishment too great to bear

    Raise your head and taste the courage (the one of light)
    Fall from grace, unholy night
    I've come here to kill you
    Won't leave until you've died
    Murder born of vengeance
    I closed my brothers eyes tonight

    (Conceived) Give me your hand (and born was one of light)
    Blood is spilt and man will follow (Rain and dark)
    Infernal man,(rain and dark, the other born black night) punishm

    Raise your head and taste the courage (the one of light)
    Fall from grace, unholy night
    I've come here to kill you
    Won't leave until you've died
    Murder born of vengeance
    I closed my brothers eyes tonight

    It's cold tonight as the clouds turn gray
    And from my hands to my brothers grave
    You took his side, you took his gift
    Feel the power of a fallen man, crestfallen man

    Far away in this land I must go
    Out of the site of the One
    A punishment sent from his hand
    A hardship no one should know
    Now go out of the site of the one
    Away in this land you must go

    (Oh oh oh) Where has he gone? What have you done?
    A voice commands from high above this earth
    From the soil his blood cries out to me
    Murder, liar, vengeance, deceit

    By And Down Lyrics


    Moving in and out of the shadows
    It's no easier mission
    Holding onto how I picture you

    Showing only bits and pieces
    'Till the tide betrays you and your empty allocution

    Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace of humility
    Searching your eyes for the saint is an act of futility
    Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace of it
    Searching your eyes for humility
    Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace
    I'm still searching searching

    Showing all the missing pieces
    'Till the light betrays you and your empty allocution
    Saw the Piper By And Down the river
    Caught his crippled alchemy
    From pounding waves of adoration

    Pied Piper float on down the river
    Bloated carcass crippled me
    The weight of adoration

    By And Down
  • This is the one new recording from A Perfect Circle's greatest hits compilation, Three Sixty. It was the band's first fresh song to appear in nearly a decade. The five-minute cut was written during the band's live re-emergences in the early 2010s and was first debuted as far back as June 2011, when the band played it live at their North American Summer tour. Frontman Maynard James Keenan told Artist Direct the song evolved in its live setting. "That's always going to happen when you have a song that you've rehearsed in a square room," he said. "When you get on stage, you feel a push and pull. You need to nudge this part a little harder and you need to get a little quieter on this part. All of those things evolve as you tour, I'd have to say with every song, that's the case. I think they're going to slowly evolve as you do them. For the most part, that song has remained fairly pure from its inception. Because of the experience we've had in the past on the road, I feel like we can kind of predict where that might go."
  • Guitarist Billy Howerdel told Billboard magazine that laying down this song in the studio proved to be a challenge, especially since the band hadn't recorded any new material since 2004's eMOTIVe. "I kind of underestimated what it would take to do it because we had played it live so many times,"Howerdel said. "The song was pretty realized, and I knew what it was gonna be. But just like anything else in the studio, just because you know the notes doesn't mean you know how the production's gonna go down. It took awhile to craft it into a proper studio recording that you were gonna be proud enough to release. Once I was in the middle of it, it did feel like familiar ground again to do that, but it definitely takes a little while to get back on the horse."
  • The song can also be found on the "Stone and Echo" volume of the band's 2013 limited edition live box set, recorded during an Aug. 11, 2011 show at Red Rocks Amphitheater near Denver.
  • The music originated from Howerdel playing around with his three-year old. The guitarist recalled to Rock Revolt Magazine : "He was playing piano, banging around on the keyboard, and I was just trying to play a melody to help have him follow along with, (use one finger instead of pounding with your fist), and the melody of 'By And Down' just came out of that. I hit record on my phone, recorded the beginnings of that, the chord structure, kicked my three-year old out of the room, probably put him in front of the Wiggles or something like that on TV, and got to work on the song."

    California Über Alles Lyrics


    I am Governor Jerry Brown
    My aura smiles
    And never frowns
    Soon I will be president

    Carter power will soon go away
    I will be FÁ¼hrer one day
    I will command all of you
    Your kids will meditate in school

    California Á?ber Alles
    Á?ber Alles California

    Zen fascists will control you
    A hundred percent natural
    You will jog for the master race
    And always wear the happy face
    Close your eyes, can't happen here
    Big Bro' on white horse is near
    The hippies won't come back you say
    Mellow out or you will pay

    California Á?ber Alles
    Á?ber Alles California

    Now it is 1984
    Knock knock at your front door
    It's the suede/denim secret police
    They have come for your uncool niece

    Come quietly to the camp
    You'd look nice as a drawstring lamp
    Don't you worry, it's only a shower
    For your clothes here's a pretty flowerâ?¦

    Die on organic poison gas
    Serpent's egg's already hatched
    You will croak, you little clown
    When you mess with President Brown

    California Über Alles
  • This is about then-Governor of California Jerry Brown, and is sung from his perspective. In the song, an imaginary President Brown outlines his hippie/zen/fascist vision of America.
  • "Über Alles" is a German phrase meaning "above all else." It was part of the German national anthem until the end of World War II, and is closely associated with the Nazis.
  • In 1984, the Dead Kennedys released a sequel to this song on their album In God We Trust, Inc., which is about then-president Ronald Reagan, who preceded Brown as Governor of California. This update - which is done in jazz/lounge style for most of the song - is called "We've Got A Bigger Problem Now."

    In our interview with Dead Kennedys lead singer Jello Biafra , he said: "I realized I was wrong about my conspiracy theory about Jerry Brown. Sure, I'd made it up all by myself and it turned out not to be true, so it was updated with Reagan lyrics until 'We've Got A Bigger Problem Now,' and the jazz version we goofed off with at sound check wound up becoming a staple of that record and the live show."
  • This was the Dead Kennedys first single. The band formed in San Francisco in 1978, but took their cue from the anarchist punk that was coming out of England. (Lead singer Jello Biafra is from Boulder, a bucolic city in Colorado that seems an unlikely place for an uprising. He claims that he somehow got his hands on an import of the Sex Pistols single "Anarchy in the U.K.," which set him on his path.)

    "California Über Alles" set the provocative tone that would become the group's prime directive: upsetting the establishment. They quickly built up a following with their chaotic live shows and shocking songs like "Kill The Poor" and "Holiday In Cambodia."
  • The group released this song on their own independent record label, Alternative Tentacles, in 1979. Bob Last, the head of a British label called Fast Product, head the group when he was vacationing in New York City, and signed a deal with the band to distribute "California Über Alles" in the UK. The song got the attention of the influential BBC DJ John Peel, who played the song on his show, boosting the band's fortunes considerably.

    The group then signed a one-year deal with a large independent label called Cherry Red Records, which issued the Fresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables album in 1980. After the year, the band was back on their own, using Alternative Tentacles to peddle their goods.
  • Jello Biafra wrote this song with his friend John Greenway; they were in a band called The Healers at the time and performed this song with that group.
  • When Arnold Schwarzenegger took over as Governor of California, Jello Biafra couldn't resist a new update of this song. The result was "Kali-Fornia Über Alles 21st Century," which he recorded with the Melvins and released in 2005. He told us: "How can you drop a song that has lines like 'Steroids for the master race, So you all can have my face?'"
  • This looks like a good place to mention somebody else who had a dark view of California: Al Kooper in Backstage Passes and Backstabbing Bastards says, "The New York sensibility has always regarded California with suspicion. If your system is geared to New York's nonstop adrenaline rush, the relaxed California life-style can seem as if you're playing a 45 RPM record at 33(1/3). Usually, if New Yorkers follow that slow a pace, they move to Florida."

    Kooper also relates the experience of staying at a friend's house which was actually a disgusting bug-ridden crash pad, and visiting another friend who, although rich, was too stoned to notice that he was eating dog food. Together, these experiences gave him an impression that California is depressing.

    High Hopes Lyrics


    Monday morning runs to Sunday night
    Screaming slow me down before the new year dies
    Well it won't take much to kill a loving smile
    And every mother with a baby crying in her arms, singing
    Give me help, give me strength
    Give a soul a night of fearless sleep
    Give me love, give me peace
    Don't you know these days you pay for everything
    Got High Hopes
    I got high hopes
    Got high hopes
    I got high hopes

    Coming from the city, coming from the wild
    I see a breathless army breaking like a cloud
    They're gonna smother love, they're gonna shoot your hopes
    Before the meek inherit they'll learn to hate themselves
    Give me help, give me strength
    Give a soul a night of fearless sleep
    Give me love, give me peace
    Don't you know these days you pay for everything
    Got high hopes
    I got high hopes
    I got high hopes
    I got high hopes

    Give me help, give me strength
    Give a soul a night of fearless sleep
    Give me love, give me peace
    Don't you know these days you pay for everything
    I got high hopes
    Got high hopes
    I got high hopes
    Got high hopes

    Tell me someone now, what's the price
    I wanna buy some time and maybe live my life
    I wanna have a wife, I wanna have some kids
    I wanna look in their eyes and know they'll stand a chance

    Give me help, give me strength
    Give a soul a night of fearless sleep
    Give me love, give me peace
    Don't you know these days you pay for everything
    I got high hopes
    Got high hopes
    I got high hopes
    Got high hopes

    Got high hopes
    I got high hopes
    I got high hopes
    I got high hopes

    High Hopes
  • This song was written by Tim Scott McConnell in 1987 and originally appeared three years later on the debut album by his band, The Havalinas. The track was incorporated into the 1996 documentary film Blood Brothers, which chronicles Springsteen's reunion with the E Street Band and its hard-to-find accompanying EP.
  • This new version was performed by the The E Street Band with Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello during a tour of Australia in March 2013 and recorded during The Boss' dates Down Under. Springsteen told Rolling Stone that he broke the habit of a lifetime when laying the song down. "We've never had a recording session during a tour in our lives," he said. "We did a couple of things that I wanted to put down. So that was very exciting. And being with Tommy was exciting. The band - Steven, Nils, all those guys - continues to be a source of inspiration for me."
  • Springsteen said regarding the cutting of the song: "I was working on a record of some of our best unreleased material from the past decade when Tom Morello (sitting in for Steve Van Zandt during the Australian leg of our tour) suggested we ought to add 'High Hopes' to our live set. I had cut 'High Hopes," a song by Tim Scott McConnell of the LA based Havalinas, in the '90s. We worked it up in our Aussie rehearsals and Tom then proceeded to burn the house down with it. We re-cut it mid tour at Studios 301 in Sydney along with 'Just Like Fire Would.'"
  • Tom Morello was driving around Los Angeles in late 2012 when Springsteen's 1996 song came on E Street Radio, the SiriusXM channel devoted to The Boss. "I was reminded what a jam it was," he recalled to Rolling Stone. "In the middle of the night, I texted Bruce and said, 'What do you think about 'High Hopes' for the tour?' He agreed we should put it in the set." Little did Morello realize that a new version of of the song would become the title track and lead single of Springsteen's eighteenth studio album.
  • This was one of three songs from High Hopes (along with "The Ghost Of Tom Joad" and "Hunter Of Invisible Game") that were played in part on the January 12, 2014 episode of the television series, The Good Wife.

    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

    This world is gonna pull through

    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

    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.

    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

    Without your love, until I have walked

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • 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."

    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

    That's what you are
    My shining star

    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
    My star, my star..

    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."

    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!"

    Psycho, groupie, cocaine, crazy,
    Psycho, groupie, cocaine, crazy,
    Psycho groupie cocaine crazy,
    Psycho groupie coke,
    Makes you high, makes you hide,
    Makes you really want to go- stop.

    Psycho groupie cocaine crazy
    Psycho groupie coke,
    Makes you high, makes you hide,
    Do you really want to think and stop,
    Stop your eyes from flowing,

    Psycho, groupie, cocaine, crazy,
    Psycho groupie cocaine crazy,
    Psycho groupie coke,
    Makes you high, makes you hide,
    Makes you really want to go, stop.
    Psycho groupie cocaine crazy
    Psycho groupie coke,
    Makes you high, makes you hide,
    Do you really want to think and stop,
    Stop your eyes from flowing out

    So you want the world to stop,
    Stop in and watch your body fully drop,
    From the time you were a
    Psycho, groupie, cocaine, crazy,

    So you want to see the show,
    You really don't have to be a ho
    From the time you were a

    Stop your eyes from flowing out

    So you want the world to stop,
    Rushing to watch your spirit fully drop,
    From the time you were a

    So you want to see the show,
    You really don't have to be a ho
    From the time you were a
    Psycho, groupie, cocaine, crazy.

    Psycho
  • This is a song against groupies, which is a surprise since many Rock bands write affectionate songs about them. It basically says that if you want to see the show, you don't have to sleep with the band.
