It's Martini Time Lyrics


Hey, buddy do you got the time?
No I don't got a watch can you spare a dime,
But I got two olives and a couple of limes,
Guessin' that means It's Martini Time.

The Martinis that brought you the loss,
I didn't even ask or care what they cost,
I lost my job for no reason or rhyme,
Guessin' that means it's martini time.

Martini time (vodka ice shaker!),
Martini time (olive or lime!),
Martini time (gotta have glasses!),
Make it with a layer of ice this time.

Dirty, dry up, or in between,
From the very first sip you know what I mean,
When you're out with a babe you don't nickel or dime,
Guessin' that means it's martini time.

Martini time (vodka ice shaker!),
Martini time (olive or lime!),
Martini time (gotta have glasses!),
Make it with a layer of ice this time.

It's martini time.

I live my life for a layer of ice
Just like those poured by my bartender vice
Any taste of vermouth would be really sublime,
When you have a good martini time!

It's Martini time (vodka ice shaker!),
Martini time (olive or lime!),
Martini time (gotta have glasses!),
Perfectly poured and top of the line.

It's martini time
It's martini time
It's Martini Time
  • The title cut from the band's 1996 Interscope Records album, it marked a change in producers for the band. Previously using Ministry's Al Jourgensen on their 1994 album Liquor in the Front, the band brought in producer Thorn Panunzio, who had previously worked for John Lennon and U2. Panunzio's influence brought a sound that was less abrasive from previous albums. The finished work was smoother and injected more humor. He also got the band using sound loops for the first time.

  • This breezy dance tune reflects a dialogue between two characters. The simple universal question, "Hey, buddy do you got the time?" spawns an exchange between the two. It invokes job loss and being down and out and how a martini is the answer. Must be serious, "I live my life for a layer of ice."

  • The background vocals by Jimbo Wallace attempt to lighten the mood. As Reverend Horton sings the chorus "martini time" three times, Wallace shouts right behind The Rev as if prohibition has just been repealed: "vodka ice shaker! olive or lime! gotta have glasses!" You can drift back in time to when movies were black and white and folks danced the jitterbug.

    How Will I Know Lyrics


    There's a boy I know, he's the one I dream of
    Looks into my eyes, takes me to the clouds above, mm mm
    Oh I lose control, can't seem to get enough, uh huh
    When I wake from dreaming, tell me is it really love, ooo

    How Will I Know (Don't trust your feelings)
    How will I know
    How will I know (Love can be deceiving)
    How will I know
    How will I know if he really loves me

    I say a prayer with every heart beat
    I fall in love whenever we meet
    I'm asking you what you know about these things
    How will I know if he's thinking of me
    I try to phone but I'm too shy (can't speak)
    Falling in love is so bitter sweet
    This love is strong why do I feel weak

    Oh, wake me, I'm shaking, wish I had you near me now, uh huh
    Said there's no mistaking, what I feel is really love, ooo tell me

    How will I know (Don't trust your feelings)
    How will I know
    How will I know (Love can be deceiving)
    How will I know

    How will I know if he really loves me
    I say a prayer with every heart beat
    I fall in love whenever we meet
    I'm asking you what you know about these things
    How will I know if he's thinking of me
    I try to phone but I'm too shy (can't speak)
    Falling in love is so bitter sweet
    This love is strong why do I feel weak

    If he loves me, if he loves me not
    If he loves me ooo, if he loves me not
    If he loves me, if he loves me not

    How Will I Know
  • This was written by George Merrill and Shannon Rubicam, who record as Boy Meets Girl and had a hit in 1988 with "Waiting For A Star To Fall." George and Shannon were a romantic couple, and secured a record deal with A&M Records after writing a batch of songs together and playing the Seattle club scene. They spoke with us about this song.

    George: "They asked us to write for Janet Jackson's next record, so Shannon and I went to work and came up with our song How Will I Know, which was sent to Janet Jackson's people. They passed on it because it wasn't right for her at the time - she was in the midst of doing her Control album.

    Shannon: "It wasn't right for that, but then our publishing company played it for Gerry Griffith when he was in Los Angeles gathering material for the unknown Whitney Houston. He loved it, sent it to Clive (Davis), and Clive said, 'We must have it.' And we said, 'Whitney who? Clive who?'

    George: "Shannon and I had our first record deal, so we were caught up in Boy Meets Girl land, and the idea of writing for other people, this is pre-Whitney Houston and pre- our understanding of songwriting for other people, so it was really a big deal when they wanted to hold onto this for Whitney Houston. Then we started checking into it and thought, well, this could be kind of a neat deal. Our good friends, brother team Alan and Preston Glass, called us where they were working with Narada Michael Walden. They were recording Whitney Houston on 'How Will I Know' and they said, 'Guys, you've got to hear this.' They played it over the phone, and I swear, her voice, hearing the first take of 'How Will I Know' on the phone we knew we were on to something special, too."

  • This is a very innocent song where Houston sings about trying to decide if a boy she likes will ever like her back. It went well with her wholesome image early in her career.

  • Shannon sang the demo, which was done in a sweet, light, R&B style suited for what Janet Jackson was recording before her Control album. Narada Michael Walden, who has also produced for Aretha Franklin, Mariah Carey and Lisa Fischer, went to work.

    Shannon: "Narada added his very punchy track and he did some rearranging on it and got us involved in some writing on the song. So it really was far more powerful than the demo we did and it sounded gorgeous and fun."

    George: "He had an idea for taking some of the music of the chorus and making a verse out of some of it, and as Shannon and I heard it, we thought that sounded like a cool idea, and Shannon jumped right in on the lyrics."

    Walden almost didn't take the gig. He told us: "I got a call from Arista and I said, First of all, I'm right in the middle of making this album for Aretha. I can't take my attention off that. But they said, You've got to make time for this girl because she's going to be incredible. So they sent me the demo on 'How Will I Know.' I said, the song's only half done, will it be okay if I mess with it? Eventually, the writers said it would be okay. So I rewrote it and cut it on the same session as 'Freeway of Love.' It didn't come out until December, but it was a monster hit. And it was all because when I met her, she was just mind-blowing. All that range and power and beauty and sex appeal coming at you with a kind of confidence you've never known before. I said, oh my Lord, you are really too much. She said, yeah, I know. After that a bunch of things came down the pike." (Here's our full interview with Narada .)

  • The backing vocals are by Whitney's mother, Cissy Houston.

  • George and Shannon also wrote Houston's hit "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)." They describe what it's like writing for other artists:

    Shannon: "When we're writing a song for other people, we tend to do more stringent editing. In some cases that's for the better, and in other cases it just ends up making the song sound a little too mental and not emotional enough. So I think that's just the thing that we keep an eye on when we're writing for other people, to not overthink it, really keep it emotional. Not really so much about what they're going to think, just feel how the song is going.

    George: "You want to make sure that the idea is clear and that you haven't put every idea into one song."

  • George and Shannon continue their musical partnership and released an album in 2003 called The Wonderground. Learn more about Boy Meets Girl at www.boymeetsgirlmusic.com.

  • The video was directed by Brian Grant, who also did Olivia Newton-John's "Physical" and Donna Summer's "She Works Hard For The Money." Houston is playful and coy in the clip, where she is surrounded by energetic dancers.

    Grant recalls Houston being very grounded, showing up at the shoot with just a friend and a rep from her record company. He told her to relax and have fun with it, which she did despite being apprehensive at first about the bevy of dancers popping out at her.

    The choreographer was Arlene Phillips, who was later a judge on the British show Strictly Come Dancing. She and Grant were asked back to work on Houston's video for "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)," which had even more of a dance focus, this time with Houston doing some light hoofing.

  • Sam Smith recorded a slowed-down version of this song in 2014 that was featured on the Season 10 episode of Grey's Anatomy, "We Gotta Get Out of This Place."

    Code of the Road Lyrics


    Code of the Road
  • This is the opening track and lead single of the band's fourth album Never Too Loud. It was produced by Grammy award winning record producer Nick Raskulinecz, known for his work with Foo Fighters, Velvet Revolver, and Evanescence.
  • The Seattle Punk band Zeke was a big influence on this track. In our 2013 interview with lead singer and guitarist Danko Jones , he said: "I'm a huge fan of Zeke, and Zeke is known for writing these über ultra fast fast Punk Rock songs, done in ten seconds flat. But when they slow down, they can give Motörhead a run for their money, when Motörhead slows down. I think Motörhead are the heaviest band in the world. Same with Zeke. Same riffage, but slowed down a bit, which is other bands' versions of being real fast. So I wanted to write that kind of mid tempo Motörhead/Zeke kind of song. So that's what that main riff is, just the chugging part."

    He added: "It was a pretty easy song to write. There was really nothing except the pre-chorus that took a while to get together. I think we fixed the song in the studio because the pre-chorus wasn't happening. That was about it. Other than that, it pretty much wrote itself. Lyrically it's about touring."
  • In a 2009 interview with Music Vice, Jones defined the "code of the road" as "playing hard, delivering the goods every night... all that sex and drugs stuff happens, but we're just happy to be playing. When we wrote the record we'd just come off of tour and a lot of the songs reflect that time of constant touring."

    Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old) Lyrics


    This ol' highway's getting longer
    Seems there ain't no end in sight
    To sleep would be best, but I just can't afford to rest
    I've got to ride in Denver tomorrow night

    I called the house but no one answered
    For the last two weeks no one's been home
    I guess she's through with me, to tell the truth I just can't see
    What's kept the woman holding on this long

    And the white line's getting longer and the saddle's getting cold
    I'm much too young to feel this damn old
    All my cards are on the table with no ace left in the hole
    I'm much too young to feel this damn old

    The competition's getting younger
    Tougher broncs, you know I can't recall
    The worn out tape of Chris LeDoux, lonely women and bad booze
    Seem to be the only friends I've left at all

    And the white line's getting longer and the saddle's getting cold
    I'm much too young to feel this damn old
    All my cards are on the table with no ace left in the hole
    I'm much too young to feel this damn old

    Lord, I'm much too young to feel this damn old

    Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old)
  • One line mentions a "Worn-out tape of Chris LeDoux." Chris LeDoux was a country singer who had been performing for years but had never achieved a large following. However, he was a big influence on Brooks. When this song became a hit, it resurrected LeDoux's career. Brooks and LeDoux later collaborated on "What'cha Gonna Do With a Cowboy?" LeDoux passed away in 2005 at age 56.
  • This was Brooks' first hit.

    Capital Radio One Lyrics


    Yes, it's time for the Dr. Goebbels show!
    There's a tower in the heart of London
    With a radio station right at the top
    They don't make the city beat
    They're making all the action stop
    A long time ago there were pirates
    Beaming waves from the sea
    But now all the stations are silenced
    'Cause they ain't got a government license
    Want to tell your problems?
    Phone in from your bedsit room
    Having trouble with your partner?
    Let us all in on the news
    If you want to hear a record
    Get the word from Aiden Day
    He picks all the hits to play
    To keep you in your place all day
    Capital Radio
    In tune with nothing
    Don't touch that dial
    Don't touch that dial
    Don't touch that dial...

    Capital Radio One
  • The main riff is based on the The Who's "I Can't Explain," a riff which The Clash used as a basis for many of their more Rock-orientated songs. The song actually started life in 1976 as a Mick Jones written tune called "Deadly Serious." Early live bootlegs exist of The Clash playing the song in this form, with completely different lyrics about the band choosing not to play Reggae music despite their love of it ("dig some reggae, don't play any"). Presumably they'd changed their mind on this policy by the time they covered "Police and Thieves" on their first album.
  • The lyrics are an attack on mainstream radio stations of the time (the song is named after popular radio station Capital Radio) and their refusal to play anything left-field like Punk Rock, sticking strictly to bland Pop and chart music. In a 1977 interview with Caroline Coon, singer Joe Strummer explained: "They're even worse because they had the chance, coming right into the heart of London and sitting in that tower right on top of everything. But they've completely blown it. I'd like to throttle Aiden Day. He thinks he's the self appointed Minister of Public Enlightenment. We've just written a new song called Capital Radio and a line in it goes 'listen to the tunes of the Dr Goebbels Show.' They say 'Capital Radio in tune with London.' Yeah, yeah, yeah! They're in tune with Hampstead. They're not in tune with us at all. I hate them. What they could have done compared to what they have done is abhorrent. They could have made it so good that everywhere you went you took your transistor radio — you know, how it used to be when I was at school. I'd have one in my pocket all the time or by my ear'ole flicking it between stations. If you didn't like one record you'd flick to another station and then back again. It was amazing. They could have made the whole capital buzz. Instead Capital Radio has just turned their back on the whole youth of the city."

    As mentioned in the quote, the song includes references to Nazi propaganda minister Josef Goebbels, to reinforce the image of Capital Radio forcing bland commercial music on the listener without any choice.
  • This was recorded, along with early live staple "Listen," on April 3, 1977 for a giveaway single with the NME magazine. It was original drummer Terry Chimes' final recording with the band before he left and was replaced by Topper Headon.
  • This was introduced live on the White Riot tour and remained in the set for the rest of the Clash's career.
  • Singer Joe Strummer would often throw in stream-of-conciousness raps in live versions. For example, the version on the live album From Here to Eternity, recorded at the Lewisham Odeon in February 1980, features a mimicked phone conversation involving Strummer requesting the radio station to play "Wooly Bully" by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs - NOT Sham 69, as he jokes! Unfortunately according to Strummer, "he said no."
  • The song was originally called "Capital Radio," but when they released an updated version in 1979, they changed its title to "Capital Radio One" and made the sequel "Capital Radio Two."

    I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
    I keep my eyes wide open all the time
    I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
    Because you're mine, I Walk The Line

    I find it very, very easy to be true
    I find myself alone when each day's through
    Yes, I'll admit that I'm a fool for you
    Because you're mine, I walk the line

    As sure as night is dark and day is light
    I keep you on my mind both day and night
    And happiness I've known proves that it's right
    Because you're mine, I walk the line

    You've got a way to keep me on your side
    You give me cause for love that I can't hide
    For you I know I'd even try to turn the tide
    Because you're mine, I walk the line

    I keep a close watch on this heart of mine
    I keep my eyes wide open all the time
    I keep the ends out for the tie that binds
    Because you're mine, I walk the line

    I Walk The Line

  • One of his most famous songs, this song details Johnny Cash's values and lifestyle. It is a promise to remain faithful to his first wife, Vivian, while he is on the road.
  • "Walk The Line" was the title of the 2005 Cash biopic, starring Joaquin Phoenix as Cash and Reese Witherspoon as June Carter.
  • Carl Perkins suggested the title "I Walk The Line" while on tour with Cash.
  • Levi's used this in television commercials.
  • While performing the song on his TV show Cash admitted that his eerie hum at the beginning of each verse was to get his pitch. The song required Cash to change keys several times while singing it.
  • Recorded in April 1956, Cash's first #1 was sped up at the urging of Sun Studios owners Sam Phillips. Jack Clements, who worked with Cash, recalled to Uncut magazine April 2012: "I wasn't impressed with Cash at first, because I like recordings with class… And Cash seemed rough, but 'I Walk The line' was a class recording."
  • The Voice contestant Craig Wayne Boyd reached #84 on the Hot 100 following a November 24, 2014 performance of the song on the show where he reinterpreted it as a slow, soulful ballad. It was the tune's first appearance on the chart since Jaye P. Morgan's cover reached #66 in 1960.

The lyrics came from an ad we took out in the trade press that used the lines, 'You can love or hate us, you ain't gonna change us we ain't ever going to be respectable.' It was Mike Stock's idea to add the gimmicky, 'Tay-tay, tsy, tsy, t-tay' at the beginning but Mel and Kim hated that bit. Nonetheless, they took the track away with them to a gig they were doing in Holland that evening. Later that night, Pete got a call from the girls saying that the Dutch audience went wild for that intro and it should not be taken out."
  • This proved to be the sisters' only UK #1, though they enjoyed 3 other Top 10 hits. In 1988 Mel was diagnosed with spinal cancer and she tragically died of the disease in 1990.

    Summertime of Our Lives Lyrics


    Everyday at twilight
    When the sun turns red in the sky
    I think of you on that shoreline
    Brushing the hair from your eyes
    We were drawing our names on the wet sand
    And running away as the tide rolled in

    Wherever you are, no matter how far
    I promise that I won't give up on you
    They say outta sight means outta mind
    But that couldn't be further from the truth
    'Cause I'm in love with you
    I'm still in love with you

    Even if there is an ocean
    Keeping your heart from mine
    That doesn't mean I'm not thinking
    About you all the time
    I'm counting the days till I see you,
    And somewhere I know that you are too

    Wherever you are, no matter how far
    I promise that I won't give up on you
    They say outta sight means outta mind
    But that couldn't be further from the truth
    'Cause I'm in love with you
    I'm still in love with you
    Oh oh oh

    We had the Summertime of Our Lives
    Nothing has ever felt so right
    The summertime of our lives
    Even though, we had to say goodbye
    I know when the world gets wrong
    You'll come back to me

    'Cause wherever you are, no matter how far
    I promise that I won't give up on you
    They say outta sight means outta mind
    But that couldn't be further from the truth

    Wherever you are, no matter how far
    I promise that I won't give up on you
    They say outta sight means outta mind
    But that couldn't be further from the truth
    I'm in love with you
    I'm still in love with you
    I'm still in love with you
    No oh oh

    Summertime of Our Lives
  • This is one of several acoustic tracks on Surfers Paradise, where Cody adopts a surf-and-sun sound not that far removed from beach troubadour Jack Johnson. "I grew up playing the acoustic guitar and I decided I really wanted to go back to my roots on this album," the singer told Radio.com . "I grew up listening to Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, and John Mayer so they definitely inspired a lot of the album too. There's a really mellow, acoustic sound to it."

    Cody added that this is his favorite track on Surfers Paradise: "It's an all-around beautiful record," he said of the song. "Acoustic guitar, ukulele and vocal and that's it. It's definitely an indicator to how I'm growing as an artist, how my music and sound is evolving."

    Southbound Pachyderm Lyrics


    Quite a surprise
    What an ingenious device.
    Boredom encompassesmy time.
    I don't know what I should do.
    Indulging a moment of your time.
    Seldom the breeder of lies.
    But you won't believe that it's true.

    They take to the skies.
    Southbound Pachyderm.

    Pinholes through cardboard at the sun.
    Passing the bucks by one by one, leaving nothing in return.
    Watching the majesty blow past.
    Speculating which will be the last.
    Savoring my piece of pie.

    And there is no reprise.
    They take to the sky.
    Southbound pachyderm.

    Life Is Hard Lyrics


    Life is beauty through and through
    Life is sunny, life is cool
    Life is even easy too
    But if my word is to be true
    Life is something to behold
    But if the truth is to be told
    Let us not leave out any part
    Do not fear, it's safe to say it here
    You will not be called a weakling
    Nor a fraud
    For feeling the pain of the whole wide world
    You want to help but can't help the feeling you cannot
    And it's killing you while you're just trying to smile from your heart
    So go on, say it, on the same knees you're praying
    Yes, Life Is Hard

    Come celebrate
    Life is hard
    Come celebrate, life is hard
    All life is all we are

    Celebrate it in the sun, promenade it with everyone
    Elevate it in a song
    And I'll be there to play it, don't get me wrong
    When I feel like dying and being gone
    When life is hard
    There's just one thing, let's not forget
    Yes! life is it!
    Life is it, life is it, it's where it's at
    It's getting skinny, getting fat
    It's falling deep into a love,
    It's getting crushed just like about
    Life there's no love, its getting beat into the ground
    It's getting lost and getting found,
    To growing up and getting round
    It's feeling silence, feeling sound
    It's feeling lonely, feeling full
    It's feeling oh so beautiful!
    Yes!

    Come celebrate
    Life is hard
    Come celebrate
    Life is hard
    All life is all we are

  • Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros mainman Alex Ebert was looking for a unique percussion sound for this song. He initially tried the sound of water dripping into a bowl, then the looped sound of a basketball being dribbled, before settling on tap shoes. "I can really hear tap dancing on this song, but it's not right-it's too ridiculous," Ebert told Billboard magazine. "I felt embarrassed that I went and tried that. Most of the last-minute stuff - this was a pretty far-out idea - does end up sticking."

    Intro Lyrics


    Somebody's pulling me closer to the ground
    I ain't panicked, I been here before
    Seems like only yesterday when I got up on that stage
    In front of that crowd
    And showed them who was who, and what was what
    Man look at these suckers
    I ain't no rapper, I'm a hustler
    It just so happens that I know how to rap
    Okay, I'm reloaded!

    I did it again niggas
    Fucked up, right? I know
    I know what y'all niggas asking yourself
    Is he gonna ever fall off?
    No

    A lot of speculation
    On the monies I've made, honeys I've slayed
    How is he for real? Is that nigga really paid?
    Hustlers I've met or, dealt with direct
    Is it true he slay the beef and slept with a tech?
    What's the position you hold? Can you really match
    A triple platinum artist buck by buck by only a single goin gold?
    Roc-A-Fella ship fold, and you're left out in the cold
    Is it back to charging motherfuckers 11 for an O
    For the millionth time askin me
    Questions like Wendy Williams, harassing me
    Then get upset when I catch feelings
    Can I get a minute to breathe? And in that minute you leave
    While I'm looking at my Rol' ice spinning on my sleeve
    Uh, nice watch, do you really have a spot?
    Like you said in Friend or Foe and if so, what block?
    What you doing in L.A., with Filipinos and ese's
    Latinos and Cheve's, down by Pico with Frederico
    I answer all your questions but then y'all got to go
    Now the question I ask you is how bad you want to know? blow!

    Roc-A-Fella y'all, uh
    Know my style

    Motherfuckers can't rhyme no more, bout crime no more
    Til I'm no more, cause I'm so raw
    My flow expose holes that they find in yours
    Wasn't for me, niggas still be dying for whores
    But I hate when a nigga sit back, admiring yours
    Young blood you better get that, we frying baccars
    Niggaz don't want to be confined to riding the iron horse
    And don't listen to the rappers, they dying to floss
    I used to be O.T., applying the force
    Shoot up the whole block, then the iron I toss
    Come back with the click playing Diana Ross
    I'm the boss and this is how it's gonna be
    Burnt the turnpike, wild miles on the V
    I got mouths to feed till they put flowers on me
    And kiss my cold cheek, chicks crying like I was Cochise
    Tombstone read 'He Was Holdin No Leaks'
    Started from the crack game and then so sweet
    Freaked it to the rap game, Jigga the old-G
    On MTV, telling em how I sold D
    And used to back work up out of apartment 4-B
    Me and my homie, started out coldies
    Picked the mailbox lock cause I ain't have no key
    Had the cable with the anchor when Jaz made 'Sophie'
    Then I went low key, but now I'm back it's on
    Motherfuckers

    Intro
  • This track introduces American Gangster, Jay-Z's first concept album, which was inspired by the 2007 crime movie of the same name. The rapper had been invited to an advanced screening of the film and it had a profound resonance on him; Hova would play it on the monitors above the recording booth to keep him inspired.
  • The song features dialogue excerpts from the American Gangster movie, spoken by Denzel Washington.
  • This was co-produced by British actor Idris Elba, whose roles include Russell "Stringer" Bell in HBO's The Wire and Nelson Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Elba started out working as a DJ in clubs in the 1990s and is also known as Driis or Big Driis to his rapper and DJ friends.

I had just watched that Larry Clark movie Kids and I thought it was rad. I think it was poking fun at this girl in my year who was kind of going off the rails."

    My throat quits when I try to say
    How I long for the day
    How I wish there was a way
    I could see you again

    I wither next to my thorns
    I thread my tongue through the horn
    Arm in arm we are born
    Arm in arm to the end

    Side streets I have worn
    Through late summer storms
    I should have told you
    I could live without you
    But I don’t want to

    My heart lifts when I sing
    The joy I can bring
    Doesn’t mean a thing
    I want to see you again

    I wither next to my thorns
    I thread my tongue through the horn
    Arm in arm in arm we are born
    Arm in arm to the end

    Side streets I have worn
    Through late summer storms
    I should have told you
    I could live without you
    But I don’t want to

    My throat quits when I try to say
    How I long for the day
    How I wish there was a way
    To see you again

    Side streets I have worn

    Jesus Wept
  • This is one of three songs on One True Vine that was written by the album's producer and Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy. Staples told Mojo magazine the story behind the song: "Tweedy had the track," she recalled, "and I said. 'You've got to write lyrics for it.' When we sat at the (family) table for dinner my father would bless the food then one of us would say the verse and my verse was 'Jesus wept.'"

    The song title is a reference to the Gospel of John 11 v 35, where Jesus cried openly alongside others over the passing of his friend Lazarus, before raising him from the dead. "Jesus wept" is the shortest verse in the Bible.
  • Staples recalled to The Music.com the first time that Tweedy played her this song: "I listened to 'Jesus Wept'," she said, "I was sitting there on the couch and tears were just streaming down my face. Tweedy looked over 'Mavis, are you crying?' and I said 'Tweedy, you're not supposed to be looking at me!'. He said 'Oh Mavis, I'm sorry' but I said 'That's just the way this song is hitting me. But you might have to change the title to Mavis Wept."

    You want it

    Molly's Chambers gonna change your mind

    Slow, she's burnin' in your soul
    With whispers in your ear
    It's okay I'll give it anyway
    Just get me out of here
    You'll plead, you'll get down on your knees
    For just another taste
    And when you think she's let you in
    That's when she fades away

    You want it
    She's got it

  • This song is about a girl that is very attractive and can make any man drop to his knees and worship her. She can be a tease: "And when you think she's let you in that's when she fades away." And if you're thinking about abstaining from sex, she'll break your will: "Molly's Chambers goin' change your mind."
  • The title comes from a line in the Thin Lizzy version of "Whiskey In A Jar": "Being drunk and weary I went to Molly's chamber."

    "We wrote around that, making it about this girl who had this secret power that would take you over," Caleb Followill told Entertainment Weekly.

    I never made it home last night, alright
    A minor so they dropped the charge and I'll be out today
    I know that that won't make it right
    It's never black and white but

    Richard you taught me all I need to know
    But there's some things you can't prepare for
    All I ever wanna do
    Is be as good a man as you

    So don't you be concerned
    (The kid's alright)
    I gotta live and learn
    (The kid's alright)
    I know that you will see
    (The kid's alright)
    I'll find my way eventually

    Richard, your tears fall on the wheel as you wipe them away
    I've never seen you so far gone, along
    The snow is tumbling, as you're wondering what you didn't say
    When I'm the one who got it wrong
    I tried to keep you calm cause

    Richard you showed me what was wrong and right
    But now I gotta live my own life
    I will fall along the way
    But I'll remember what you say

    So don't you be concerned
    (The kid's alright)
    I gotta live and learn
    (The kid's alright)
    I know that you will see
    (The kid's alright)
    I'll find my way eventually

    Woah woah
    Reach out, Richard
    Woah woah
    Reach out

    I know you see yourself inside my eyes
    Richard don't worry 'cause the kid's alright
    I gotta live and learn

    Richard you barely made it out of school
    But look at everything you been through
    Apples fall right from the tree
    As long as you are here for me

    I'll never be concerned
    (The kid's alright)
    I gotta live and learn
    (The kid's alright)
    I know that you will see
    (The kid's alright)
    I'll find my way eventually

    So don't you be concerned

  • Hawthorne sings about his father on this Pharrell Williams produced track. He described it to Radio.com as "by far the hardest song [I've] ever had to write." Hawthorne added: "I have to thank Pharrell Williams for pushing me to get the whole story out. That was a toughie for me. It's a very emotional story. Richard is my dad. I still tear up thinking about that song sometimes, it's a tough one. It was so close to me that I didn't even know if I could put it on the album. Pharrell called me every day and said, 'You have to put that song on the album.' I caved and put it on there and I'm glad I did."

    Cinnamon Girl Lyrics


    As war drums beat in Babylon
    Cinnamon Girl starts to pray
    I've never heard a prayer like this 1
    Never before that day

    Tearful words of love for people she had never met before
    Asking God to grant them mercy in this face of a holy war

    Cinnamon Girl

    Cinnamon Girl of mixed heritage
    Never knew the meaning of color lines
    Nine one one turned that all around
    When she got accused of this crime

    So began the mass illusion, war on terror alibi
    What's the use when the god of confusion keeps on telling the same lie?

    Cinnamon Girl

    Don't cry, don't shed no tears
    1 night won't make us feel
    Cause we know how this movie's ending

    Cinnamon Girl

    As war drums beat in Babylon
    And scorch the blood red sky
    Militants bomb the foreign gun
    Both sides truly die

    Cinnamon girl opens the book she knows will settle all the scores
    Then she prays after the war that there will not be anymore

    Cinnamon Girl
  • This song has heavy religious undertones. Since Prince was a member of the Jehovah's Witness religion, his writing was influenced by his belief system.

    "The god of confusion" refers to the JWs belief in Satan as the devil. The lyric, "Don't cry, don't shed no tears... cause we know how this movie's ending" refers to an Armageddon the JWs believe will occur. At the end of the song, when "the girl opens the books she knows will settle all the scores," that book is the Bible.

    Prince embraced his new religion after becoming friends with former Sly and the Family Stone bassist Larry Graham, who was a Jehovah's Witness.
  • Prince was nominated for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for this song at the 2005 Grammy Awards but lost to John Mayer's "Daughters."
  • Aside from its title, this song has no connection to Neil Young's "Cinnamon Girl."
  • There was a swirl of controversy around the music video for this song, which features actress Keisha Castle-Hughes as a Muslim girl who faces extreme prejudice after the September 11 attacks on the US and dreams of becoming a terrorist herself.

    There’s ghosts that follow me around

    I bet you see a stranger
    When you look at me
    When I look in the mirror
    I know that’s what I see

    Got some pills to get my head right
    But they don’t work so well
    So I drank a little more tonight
    And here is where I fell

    I bet you see a stranger
    When you look at me
    When I look in the mirror
    I know that’s what I see

    I just want a little sleep now
    A sleep that’s silent as snow
    But I am not a bad man
    I just wanted you to know

    Not a Bad Man
  • The American Kid album deals with death in a number of ways. This song tells the story of a young soldier who is sent to fight in Iraq. He makes it back to America, but is traumatized by what he saw there.

    Griffin explained the song's backstory to The Daily Telegraph: "There was a marine who had returned home from Iraq to Austin, Texas, where I live," she said. "A lot of kids got lured in by the marketing campaign and joined up and they weren't really sure who they were fighting. It was after 9/11 and the Twin Towers had come down and these boys were going to go to fight. For me, that was a very terrifying time to be in America and to be an American. Lots of our soldiers came home really damaged after they realised they were harming people they didn't know."

    "I read a story in a paper about a family who were trying to get a young family member out of the military and get him some mental health care. That didn't prove possible and he ended up dead and it wasn't clear whether it was a suicide. So I wrote the song to get inside that kid, if I could."
  • This song is one of the most powerful songs that she has written against war, telling the story of a soldier who becomes the product of a war far more contemporary than the one her father had fought in: World War II.

    The title says something about who the man was and who many soldiers of later times represent. They are not bad men, but are being forced to fight unjust wars, often because they signed up without understanding the consequences.

    Help Me Lyrics


    Help Me
    I think I'm falling
    In love again
    When I get that crazy feeling, I know
    I'm in trouble again
    I'm in trouble

    'Cause you're a rambler and a gambler
    And a sweet-taIking-ladies man
    And you love your lovin'
    But not like you love your freedom

    Help me
    I think I'm falling
    In love too fast
    It's got me hoping for the future
    And worrying about the past
    'Cause I've seen some hot hot blazes
    Come down to smoke and ash
    We love our lovin'

    But not like we love our freedom
    Didn't it feel good
    We were sitting there talking
    Or lying there not talking
    Didn't it feel good
    You dance with the lady
    With the hole in her stocking

    Didn't it feel good
    Didn't it feel good
    Help me
    I think I'm falling
    In love with you

    Are you going to let me go there by myself
    That's such a lonely thing to do
    Both of us flirting around
    Flirting and flirting

    Hurting too
    We love our lovin'
    But not like we love our freedom

    Help Me
  • In this song, Mitchell sings about a guy she's falling in love with while at the same time knowing the relationship is doomed, as he is "a rambler and a gambler" who loves his freedom. Mitchell never revealed the identity of this person (if any - she says that not all her songs are autobiographical), but the two prime candidates would be Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey, both of whom she dated in the early '70s.
  • Mitchell used jazz musicians to back her on the Court And Spark album after initial attempts to play it with the popular Los Angeles session players that backed the likes of James Taylor and Warren Zevon failed. She got the sound she was looking for in members of the band L.A. Express, which included guitarist Larry Carlton and drummer John Guerin. During the sessions, Mitchell became romantically involved with Guerin.
  • Released as the first single from the album, "Help Me" became Mitchell's biggest hit, going to #7 on the Hot 100 and #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart - her only #1 on that tally.
  • Mandy Moore performed this song for her Tangled audition. Alan Menken composed the music for the 2010 Disney animated film and drew inspiration from '60s folk-rock. With her flowing locks and longing for freedom, the heroine Rapunzel immediately brought Mitchell to mind.

    Axis
  • This largely instrumental banger was released as the first single from The Pet Shop Boys' twelfth album, Electric. It was debuted on March 22, 2013 at the Cumbre Tajín festival in Veracruz, Mexico and released digitally on May 1, 2013.
  • An extremely negative review of the Pet Shop Boys previous album, Elysium, had an incalculable effect on Electric. "They said they wanted more banging and more strobes," Chris Lowe told Q magazine. So we thought, 'Well, that's what you're going to get, then.'"
  • The Pet Shop duo employed Stuart Price, best known for his work with Madonna and The Killers, to produce Electric. "It was a quick, instinctive record to make," Price said. "But I think that's because a record normally sounds like the time you have making it and we had a lot of fun doing it."
  • The song was inspired by an Italian Disco night in Berlin that the Pet Shop duo attended. Chris Lowe told Electronic Beats magazine that the pair, "got back and felt inspired by the music we'd been listening to—nothing specific, but just the feeling of it all."

    Tennant added "I think it was this track that might have made us decide to do a separate dance album — 'cause this was never going to go on Elysium. There was no option of that at all."
  • This song was inspired by Madonna. Neil Tennant laughed to The Sun: "Axis had a rubbish vocal at first. Then I pretended to be Madonna on 'Erotica' and said it in an American accent. Now when I hear the voice at the start of the show, I don't think of it as me but my alter-ego, 'The Electric voice'."
  • This was titled various times "Electric" and "Turn it On", before the Pet Shop Boys settled on "Axis."
  • Producer Stuart Price told Electronic Beats magazine: "The demo always had the direction and the atmosphere. I sort of always thought it had this sort of futuristic, sort of mystical 'City in the Skies' feel to it, and that's what I loved about it. It was sort of like where Techno met Disco… and that's always what it felt like, so when we were working on it in the studio I think it was just putting it into a place where it could be played in a DJ set now."

    "The BCS-3 is that box you always see Eno with in a Roxy Music video, or on a Bowie record," he continued. "And there's not really anyone alive that can play it, but anyone can sort of stand there and just push it and it will do something. So all this, it's just the sound of those boxes—plus disco bells, equals 'Axis.'"
