Respectable Lyrics


Yes Ha-ha, ha-ha-ha ......
Hey man (hey man), Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, Hey man (hey man)

Tay, tay, tay, tay, t-t-t-tay-tay, tay, tay
It's our occupation, we're a dancin' natio-ion
We keep the pressure on every night
Explanations are complicatio-ions
We don't need to know the where or why
Tay, tay, tay, tay, t-t-t-tay-tay, tay, tay

Takin' chances, bold advance-e-es, Don't care if you think we're out of line
Conversation is interrigatio-ion, Get out of here, we just don't have the time

Tay, tay, tay, tay, t-t-t-tay-tay, tay, tay
Take or leave us only please believe us
We are never gonna be Respectable (respectable)
Like us, hate us, but you'll never change us
We are never gonna be respectable (respectable, respectable, respectable, respectable)

Hesitation is just frustratio-ion, Give us the music and we're alright
On each occasion for your informatio-ion, We can look after ourselves alright

Tay, tay, tay, tay, t-t-t-tay-tay, tay, tay
Fascination is our sensatio-ion, We like to put ourselves on the line
Recreation is our destinatio-ion, so don't wait up for us tonight
Tay, tay, tay, tay, t-t-t-tay-tay, tay, tay

Take or leave us, only please believe us
We are never gonna be respectable (respectable)
Like us, hate us, but you'll never change us
We are never going to be respectable (respectable, respectable, respectable, respectable)

Ha-ha, ha-ha-ha ......
Hey man (hey man), Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha, Hey man (hey man)

Tay, tay, tay, tay, t-t-t-tay-tay, tay, tay
Take or leave us, only please believe us
We are never gonna be respectable (respectable)
Like us, hate us, but you'll never change us
We are never gonna be respectable (respectable)
Take or leave

Respectable
  • Mel and Kim were an English duo, Mel and Kim Appleby, both former models before being discovered by Pete Waterman of the production team Stock, Aitken and Waterman. It was Stock, Aitken and Waterman's first joint composition and production UK #1,(they produced only their previous #1, Dead Or Alive's "You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)").
  • According to 1000 UK #1 Hits by Jon Kutner and Spencer Leigh, Pete Waterman said of this, "Respectable became an anthem, not just for them and their image, but also for the company itself. 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.

    Jesus Wept Lyrics


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

    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."

    Reach Out Richard Lyrics


    Richard, hello, I know it's 4am on New Years Day
    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
    (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

    (The kid's alright)

    Reach Out Richard
  • 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."

    Rewind The Film Lyrics


    Rewind The Film again
    I'd love to see my joy, my friends
    Rewind the film again
    So I can fall asleep content

    Rewind the film once more
    Turn back the pages of my post
    Rewind the film once more
    I want the world to see it all

    I want to feel small
    Lying in my mother's arms
    Playing my old records
    Hoping that they never stop

    There's too much heartbreak
    In the nothing of the now
    I want to see it all
    Never want to let it go

    Rewind the film once more
    Turn back the pages of my post
    Rewind the film once more
    I want the world to see it all

    Let me hide under the sheets
    And celebrate the boredom
    Let me hide under the sheets
    With my brave old one

    Rewind the film again
    I'd love to see my joy, my friends
    Rewind the film again
    So I can fall asleep content

    Rewind the film once more
    Turn back the pages of my post
    Rewind the film once more
    I want the world to see it all

    I want to feel small
    Holding on my father's hands
    Playing all the records
    Praying that they'll never stop

    There is too much heartbreak
    In the nothing of the now
    I want to see it all
    Never going to let you down

    Rewind the film once more
    Turn back the pages of my post
    Rewind the film once more
    I want the world to see it all

    I want the world to see all the love
    And security, my childhood dreams
    But now I am a busted flush
    And I am waiting for the night to come

    So rewind the film again
    I'd love to see my joy, my friends
    Yes, rewind the film again
    So I can fall asleep content

    Rewind The Film
  • This plea for nostalgia and comfort features a brooding, melancholic contribution from Richard Hawley. The Sheffield singer-songwriter told Gigwise that he and Manics frontman James Dean Bradfield clicked after they both contributed songs to Dame Shirley Bassey's 2009 album, The Performance. "I met James at that Shirley Bassey concert because we both wrote songs for her. I was sat at the side of the stage just watching her and completely in awe then James just came up and tapped me on the shoulder and we just sat together completely enthralled by Ms Bassey. We got chatting afterwards and it turns out that both of our fathers were first-wave teddy boy bikers. You don't meet many other people like that. It was a shared experience we had of growing up with people who were fairly fu--ing wild."

    "We swapped phone numbers," he continued," and texted each other occasionally, but he was off having a family and a break while I was away on the road, then he just phoned me and said, 'We've written this song and all decided that you have to sing it or it won't go on the album.' So I just said, 'I can't let you down,' and it was a great honour I drove down to Cardiff in a day and it's a really beautiful song. I play a bit of Hawaiian guitar on it and it's me and James doing a duet. He sings one part and I sing another.

    Nick (Wire, bass) wrote the words I sing and James wrote his bit, so it's a very personal song," Hawley concluded, "and I was surprised that Nicky wanted me to sing it, but now that I've done it I can see why. It's quite dramatic and acoustic."
  • Manic Street Preachers bassist and lyricist Nicky Wire explained the song's meaning to The Quietus : "It's a tiny bit heartbreaking, that song, he said. 'I want to be small, lying in my mother's arms.' It's saying, 'I'd like to do it all again.' It's not about changing stuff because it's been fu--ing brilliant. That's hard to put into a lyric. I loved growing up, I loved being a kid, I love my Mum and Dad and my brother, and then I loved being in a band, and doing education in between. Being very blessed in a very simple way - there's no extravagances in those years. It's about realising it's fu--ing over, and that's what permeates the sadness."

    All I Need Is A Miracle Lyrics


    I said go if you want to go
    Stay if you want to stay
    I didn't care if you hung around me
    I didn't care if you went away
    And I know you were never right
    I'll admit I was never wrong
    I could never make up my mind
    I made it up as I went along

    And though I treated you like a child
    I'm gonna miss you for the rest of my life

    All I Need Is A Miracle, all I need is you
    All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
    All I need is a miracle, all I need is you

    I never had any time
    And I never had any call
    But I went out of my way just to hurt you
    The one I shouldn't hurt at all
    I thought I was being cool
    Yeah, I thought I was being strong
    But it's always the same old story
    You never know what you've got 'til it's gone

    If I ever catch up with you
    I'm gonna love you for the rest of your life

    All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is a miracle, all I need is you
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is a miracle, all I need is you

    And if I ever catch up with you
    I'm gonna love you for the rest of your life

    All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is a miracle, all I need is you
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is a miracle, all I need is you
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is a, all I need is a
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is you
    (All I need is a miracle) all I need is you (all I need is a miracle)

  • The "Mike" in Mike + the Mechanics is Mike Rutherford, best known for his work with Genesis. Every member of Genesis embarked on other projects, with the solo efforts of Peter Gabriel and Phil Collins getting the most attention, but Rutherford did very well with with Mike + the Mechanics, whose biggest hit came in 1989 with "The Living Years."
  • "If you write a great song, you want a great voice, and that voice isn't me," Mike Rutherford said in explaining why he didn't sing in the band.

    Rutherford used ex-Sad Cafe singer Paul Young (not to be confused with the Paul Young who sang "Every Time You Go Away"), for lead vocals on this track and three others from the album. Paul Carrack, known for his solo recordings and his work with Squeeze, sang on three other tracks. Young died in 2000 at age 53.
  • A track from Mike + the Mechanics first album, Mike Rutherford, who played guitar and bass on the song, wrote it with Christopher Neil, who produced the album. The song is about a guy who treated his girl horribly, and now wishes he had her back. It's a case of lyrical dissonance, as the jaunty beat belies the anguished storyline.
  • The video contains dialogue and follows a story arc where the band's manager needs a miracle to raise some cash so he can pay off a club owner. His shots are intercut with footage of the band performing at said club.

    The clip was directed by Jim Yukich, who did many of the Genesis videos.
  • In the UK, this made #53 when it was first released, but did better when it was re-released in 1996, placing at #27.

    Midnight at the Oasis Lyrics


    Midnight at the Oasis
    Send your camel to bed
    Shadows painting our faces
    Traces of romance in our heads
    Heaven's holding a half-moon
    Shining just for us
    Let's slip off to a sand dune, real soon
    And kick up a little dust
    Come on, Cactus is our friend
    He'll point out the way
    Come on, till the evening ends
    Till the evening ends
    You don't have to answer
    There's no need to speak
    I'll be your belly dancer, prancer
    And you can be my sheik

    I know your Daddy's a sultan
    A nomad known to all
    With fifty girls to attend him, they all send him
    Jump at his beck and call
    But you won't need no harem, honey
    When I'm by your side
    And you won't need no camel, no no
    When I take you for a ride
    Come on, Cactus is our friend
    He'll point out the way
    Come on, till the evening ends
    Till the evening ends
    Midnight at the oasis
    Send your camel to bed
    Got shadows painting our faces
    And traces of romance in our heads

    Midnight at the Oasis
  • This song was written by David Nichtern , a composer who also became a renown teacher of Shambhala Buddhism. He told us the story of this song, which is one of the more sensual tunes you will come across. Said Nichtern: "I wrote the song before I started working with Maria... the details are a little bit intimate, but let's just say there was a girl, a waterbed, feta cheese and grape leaves, and a Martin 000-18 near by.

    I actually produced the demo (in Woodstock) that got Maria her Warner Bros individual artist deal, so I was on the map already with them to that extent. On that demo was a song I wrote called 'I Never Did Sing You a Lovesong' which made it onto the album but was re-recorded. Also we demoed a track that Wendy Waldman wrote called 'Mad Mad Me (I Love You)' which made it onto the album as it was so I got producer credit for that track.

    My memory is that I came out to LA and got to play rhythm guitar on several tracks. From there I got more and more involved with the record. At a rehearsal, I played 'Midnight at the Oasis' for Lenny Waronker and he liked it and wanted to include it on the record.

    We recorded it with some great musicians - Jim Gordon on drums (who later went crazy and killed his own mother and went to prison for life I think). Freebo played bass, Mark Jordan on piano and me on acoustic guitar. Later, Famous Amos Garrett added that amazing electric guitar part and solo, which in some circles is as famous as the song itself.

    Warner's released the album and then Midnight as the first single... they hung in there with it for something like nine months until it took off.... that might not happen today... the rest is herstory as they say..."
  • Maria Muldaur is an Italian singer who was born Maria D'Amato. Muldaur is to white female pop singers what Anita O'Day is to white female jazz singers: way hipper than the herd. She recorded in the '60s with the Even Dozen and Jim Kweskin jug bands and with her then-husband, Geoff Muldaur, before going out on her own with this 1973 recording.

    Sidemen include Jim Dickinson, Spooner Oldham, Jim Keltner, Mac Rebennack, Ray Brown, and Dave Holland. Among the tunes on her self-titled album are Jimmie Rodgers' "Any Old Time," Dolly Parton's "My Tennessee Mountain Home," and the album's hit, "Midnight At The Oasis."
  • In our Maria Muldaur interview , she explained: I was making my first solo album for Warner Brothers in 1973, and I had just recently separated from my then-husband, Geoff Muldaur, who not only was my partner, but also my musical partner, and sort of the mastermind of, musically, whatever we did together. So being a solo artist was completely strange and alien and rather scary territory for me.

    And so I was out in California finding myself in the studio with all the top guns: Dr. John , Ry Cooder, David Lindley; I mean, all the fabulous guys that played on my first album. And I had been working with a young guitarist named David Nichtern when I first separated from Geoffrey. He was very encouraging and told me, 'You can do this.' I was just sobbing and I was a mess. We had a little talk and he would say, 'Look, people still know you from the Jug Band, and if I can get work in these little coffee houses, you can, too.' And so we put together a few tunes, and he got us some gigs. This was real low-profile stuff. I'd be crying all the way up to the gig, and he'd say, 'Okay, dry your eyes and wash your face. We're on in half an hour.' And he was just a very supportive little brother to me.

    And so when I found myself out in California doing this solo album, I was going to do one of his songs. He's a very lovely songwriter and he'd written this beautiful song called 'I Never Did Sing You a Lovesong.' Very lyrical little waltz-y, kind of a country waltz kind of thing. And he knew I had all these really fabulous musicians at the studio. But he came out on his own dime, because he just felt, well, maybe they'll let him play rhythm guitar on his own tune or something. So he came on out in his little VW bug and slept on a mattress on my living room floor in the Hollywood Hills and came to the studio, was observing everything, and did get to play on his own song.

    And then we were almost finished recording, the producer came in the studio and said, 'You know, I've been listening to the rough mixes, and I think we're in pretty good shape.' He said, 'You know, we've got some up tempo stuff and we've got some nice ballads. I think if we had one more medium tempo song, then the album would be nicely balanced out, we'd be in good shape. Does anything come to mind?'

    So David was standing right there, and just off the top of my head, kind of as a gesture of gratitude to him because he had been so supportive to me, kind of holding my hand through all of this, which was very overwhelming, you know, I'd never been in that position before of being a solo artist and trying to make my way through an album that was all about me. And I said, 'Well, David has this song. It's a funny little song, really, but it is medium tempo.' I said, 'David, play them 'Midnight at the Oasis' and see what you think.' Which I'd heard before and I thought it was just a goofy little song; I didn't think much of it one way or the other. So he whipped out his guitar and started to play it on the guitar, and I sang it. And the producer cocked his head, he said, 'Oh, that's cute, okay, wanna do that one?' So as a gesture to David, I said, 'Yeah, let's do that one. I have no other bright ideas.' And we called in some great studio players and we cut it. And the rest is history."
  • A hit song can become a burden to a singer if she is sick of the song yet still expected to perform it night after night. So how does Muldaur feel about constantly performing this song? She told us: "I still do enjoy singing it. And you know why? Because number one, it was a very hip-ly written song. A lot of the jazz artists have covered it because it's very well constructed. Imagine my plight if my big hit had been 'Wild Thing' by the Troggs, a really dumb three-chord song. But it's a song that's so well constructed that an artist can improvise on it night after night. So that's reason number one, it's a cool song.

    Reason number two is I love the look of the faces of the audience when the band strikes that number up, when the band goes into the intro of that number. Because apparently, from all the stories that have been told to me when I meet my fans after the show to sign my CD, that song was the soundtrack to many a love-and-lust affair, and if I had been writing down all the stories of what people tell me they were doing or were inspired to do because of that song, or as that song was playing, I could have written quite the little x-rated book. So when I start that song, people's faces light up and I see very happy, maybe slightly x-rated memories flitting across their faces. And so that's worth more than any Grammy nomination or award - to hear first hand from your fans, from hundreds and hundreds of fans, how a piece of music I didn't even write, but that I selected and recorded and just put out there in the airwaves, just had such a happy impact on people's lives. What a gift is that?"

    Here we go

    Everybody wants me to be who they want me to be except you
    All I wanna do is be with you
    They all tell me that there’s something strange
    I don’t wanna be with nobody new
    All I wanna do is be with you

    Life sounds like
    I’m alive (x6)
    (This is what it sounds like)
    Whoa-oh-oh, I’m alive

    How come every day something jumps in the way
    Gets complicated, I feel devestated
    But when I’m feeling down, I only wanna be with you
    I can’t afford the rent or remember checks I sent
    To pay off all my taxes and feed the president
    But there’s one thing I remember, I only wanna be with you

    Life sounds like
    I’m alive (x6)
    (This is what it sounds like)
    Whoa-oh-oh, I’m alive

    (Break it down right here now)
    You be Bonnie, I’ll be your Clyde
    Hop into my car and drive like
    Fireworks, we will ignite
    Through the San Francisco night

    Like Jay-Z, Beyonce
    Come be my fiance

    Hey soul sister, I’ll be your mister
    Don’t wanna be no one-night stand
    How many ways can I say to make you understand
    That I only wanna be your man

    Life sounds like
    Whoa-oh-oh
    This is what it sounds like
    Whoa-oh-oh
    And it sounds like

    I’m alive (x6)
    (This is what it sounds like)
    Whoa-oh-oh, I’m alive

    (Bring it back one more time)

    Everybody wants me to be who they want me to be except you
    All I wanna do is be with you

    Life sounds like
    Whoa-oh-oh
    (This is what it sounds like)
    Whoa-oh-oh
    Life sounds like, like, like…

    Life sounds like
    I’m alive (x6)
    (This is what it sounds like)
    Whoa-oh-oh, I’m alive

    I'm Alive (Life Sounds Like)
  • Ostensibly a love song about finding the one person in the world who just gets him, the tune also acts as a metaphor for the bigger issues that are going on in the world today. "This is the song that was really just an expression of gratitude for being alive and wanting to live every minute to the fullest," Franti said in our 2014 interview . "I guess I wanted to get the sound of what it means to be alive rather than the ideas of what it means to be alive. That's why right before the chorus it sounds like, 'Whooaaa,' and then just turns into a melody after that."
  • On the All People album, Franti worked extensively with outside songwriters for the first time. This song he wrote with the Australian songwriter/producer Adrian Newman, who worked with Franti on three other cuts as well: "Closer To You," "Say Goodbye" and "Long Ride Home."

    Your Life is a Lie Lyrics


    Here's the deal
    Open your eyes
    Your Life is a Lie
    Don't say a word
    I'll tell you why
    You're living a lie
    Your life is a lie
    But you deny, you ever lied
    Wondering why
    Bury your life
    Count your friends
    On your hands
    Now look again
    They're not your friends
    Hold your breath
    Everyone left
    No surprise
    Living a lie

    Tell your wife
    This is your life
    Your life is a lie
    This is your wife
    Now she knows, she understands
    Her life is a lie
    Nobody wins
    Try not to cry
    You'll survive
    On your own

    Lessons in life
    Your life is a lie
    Now there's no time
    Wondering why
    Where in the world
    Is that girl?
    He knows she's alright
    To live a life
    Waiting to die
    Not knowing that
    Your life is a lie
    Wondering why
    Nobody writes
    Hollow inside
    Periods in light
    Fire and ice
    Your life is a lie
    Your life is a lie
    Your life is a lie
    Your life is a lie
    On your own
    One more time
    Your life is a lie

    Your Life is a Lie
  • The second single released from MGMT's eponymous third album is a short, sharp slice of surrealism. Vocalist Andrew VanWyngarden told Relix magazine that he wrote the song, "while tripping hard on acid by a fire."
  • MGMT premiered the song live during their concert at Portland, Maine's State Theatre on April 30, 2013.
  • The song's music video finds MGMT again working with Tom Kuntz, who was director of the band's 2010 mini-epic widescreen clip for "Congratulations." Kuntz pairs the band with an assortment of colorful characters, including skeletons singing around a piano, talking dolphins and Happy Days actor Henry Winkler.
  • On the face of it, some of the lyrics could be read as a rebuttal to MGMT's fair-weather fans who ditched the duo after their commercially successful Oracular Spectacular album:

    "Count your friends on your hands
    Now look again, they're not your friends."

    VanWyngarden said in an interview this interpretation would be missing the point: "It's not supposed to be directed at our fans," he said. "It's more for people to use and direct towards whoever they want, whoever they feel like is holding them down."

    Honey, This Mirror Isn't Big Enough For The Two Of Us Lyrics


    Honey, This Mirror Isn't Big Enough For The Two Of Us
  • This is about a guy deciding that a fake life with a woman is leading him nowhere and he wants to cut it off. Despite the fact that he seems popular being with this woman and she wants him, he is drinking, they fight, and all of his friends are fake. It is a song about not selling out for the high life.
  • There are some drug references in this song, such as "Eating breakfast on a mirror," which implies doing cocaine after waking up. The controlling girlfriend doesn't want the singer to do them, and he resists.
  • More lyric interpretation:
    "The amount of pills I'm taking, counteracts the booze I'm drinking, And this vanity I'm breaking lets me live my life like this" - He's doing many things at once. The "vanity" could have a double meaning, literally it's a piece of furniture but it could also indicate how self-absorbed he is.

    "And you can cry all you want to, I don't care how much." - He doesn't care how much she cries and begs him to stop using drugs, he won't stop so she might as well give up.

    Cubicles Lyrics


    Cubicles
  • This song is about a guy (most likely a nerdy, self-conscious guy), who falls in love with a girl who works a few cubicles down from him in an office, but she leaves and his world falls apart. The whole CD has a lot to do with classic movie plots, with themes of vampires, zombies, office romance and lovers running from the law together.
  • This song is about rejection, but it's framed in the context of everyday office life. He writes love notes to a girl every day, but never has the nerve to give them to her, so tears them up and throws them out of the window. Then eventually, she switches jobs, and he says that whoever takes her place in her cubicle, it will only be a temporary stand in for her. And he starts to think that he's never going to meet anyone and he'll die alone. He Imagines things that they could have done together, that he knows that they will never do because he would never talk to her. It's about loving someone that you see regularly, but they don't even realize you exist.

    23 Lyrics


    (Mike Will made it)
    I'm in the club, high off purp', with some shades on
    Tatted up, mini skirt, with my J's on

    (In the club, high off purp' with some shades on)
    (Tatted up, mini skirt and my J's on)

    J’s on my feet
    J’s on my feet
    J’s on my feet
    So get like me

    J’s on my feet
    J’s on my feet
    J’s on my feet
    So get like me

    I be in the club standing on the couch
    In them Wolf Greys like it's my house
    Drinking out the bottle, I got no respect
    Looking like a model, who just got a check
    I back it up, cause I don't give a fuck
    If you a lame, that's a shame you can't hang with us
    I'm MC Hammer fly, you can't touch
    J's so fly I should work at Flight Club

    Put on my J's and dance the whole night away
    I’m naughty by nature like I’m hip-hop hooray
    My hands in the sky, I wave ‘em from side to side
    My feet on the floor, I’m ’bout to turn up now

    I'm in the club high off purp' with some shades on
    Tatted up, mini skirt with my J's on

    (In the club, high off purp' with some shades on)

    I got lots of flavors, my kick game is major
    More kicks than the players, call me up I'm scorin'
    Hit it like a free throw, tongue out like I'm Jordan
    Smiley, Miley, come swing the thing right by me
    Gotta a joint if you wanna get stoned, got choppers if they wanna try me
    Pro athlete I'm not no wannabe
    Waitress asked how many bottles? I said 23

    Put on my J's and dance the whole night away
    I’m naughty by nature like I’m hip-hop hooray
    My hands in the sky, I wave ‘em from side to side
    My feet on the floor, I’m ’bout to turn up now

    I'm in the club high off purp' with some shades on
    Tatted up, mini skirt with my J's on

    I stay showin' out, my kick game is a beast
    I got thirty pair of J's that ain't never been released

    On the hype beast sick, they gon' need a paramedic
    Turn up, turn up, turn up, I got trippy, I stay live
    All this purple in my cup, match them grape 5's
    I'm so high, I got three bitches that go bi
    I'm so fly, I'm gettin' head like a blow dryer

    Put on my J's and dance the whole night away

    With my hands in the sky, I wave ‘em from side to side
    My feet on the floor, I’m ’bout to turn up now

  • Producer Mike WiLL Made It's lead single from his Est. In 1989 Pt. 3 (The Album) longplayer features Miley Cyrus crooning alongside rapper Wiz Khalifa and Juicy J. Will also worked with Cyrus on her BANGERZ album and he told MTV News about this collaboration with the former Disney starlet. "I already had Juicy J and Wiz on there, and then we were working on 'We Can't Stop,' and I had a verse on there that was already laid down, but I wanted a girl to do it," he explained.

    "But I didn't know who I was going to do it with, and this was first day meeting Miley, and we had just knocked out 'We Can't Stop.' And then I let her hear it, and she told me she liked it," Will added.
  • Will admitted telling Cyrus that he had some reservations about her contributing a rapped verse, but that didn't stop her. "She told my engineer, 'Turn the mike on,' and she went in the booth, then she laid down the verse, and she killed it," the producer explained. "[So I] left her on there. She killed it, all swagged up."
  • The song finds Will paying tribute to Michael Jordan. The title is a reference to the basketball legend's shirt number, which he wore as it was half (then rounded up) of his brother, Larry's number 45. When Michael was at high school, he believed that he only had half of Larry's skills and wanted to be at least half as good.
  • Cyrus told MTV News why she was so eager to get on the cut. "He had had this track '23' with Wiz and Juicy already, and it's just on some cool like old-school J s--t and that's what's really cool about it," she said. "And like people wouldn't expect me to be on a song about Jordan... right now all they really see of me and Juicy is me at his concert way too twerked up, they haven't seen what we can do when were together and when were together it's this crazy kind of vibe because it's not what people would really expect."

    "I'm definitely not a rapper. It's my rapping," Cyrus added. "It's my own swag. I hate that word. But it's just the only way I can really describe it, it's just kind of my own thing where it's not really rapping, it's just kind of on my own thing it's just kind of on my own s--t."
  • The song's music video was filmed in Brooklyn on August 26, 2013 and directed by Hannah Lux Davis (Lil Wayne's "Love Me," Jason Derulo's "Marry Me").

    Cyrus can be seen wearing at one stage the controversial foam finger she waved and gyrated against during her 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance . Davis recalled to Billboard magazine that she saw Cyrus' more professional side. "She was there the whole day of shooting, even though she didn't need to be," said the director. "Her energy on set was great - so personable, so easy."
  • Mike WiLL Made It got a huge amount of flak at the time for working with a pop act. "All I hear is 'Yo, that s--t you're making ain't hip-hop,'" he told Billboard magazine. "People told me that Miley's '23' wasn't hip-hop. Let me tell you, she went in and owned that track. She smoked more weed in one week than most rappers I know. That song was not some far-fetched thing she had to reach for. She was ill as hell. When people question me about whether something is hip-hop, I ask them, 'Does it sound hard? Does it hit home? Is it raw and real?' If it is, I did my job. And you can call it whatever you want."

    The Way It Used To Be Lyrics


    We were young
    We were never growing old
    And the glitter was still gold
    They way it used to be

    It was love
    It was easy just to smile
    It was easy for a while
    The Way It Used To Be

    But even stars they fade
    And colors turn to grey
    I miss yesterday
    And the way it used to be

    And I can't turn back time
    Even if I tried
    I miss you tonight
    And girl I miss the way it used to be

    Look at you
    You've got the life, the pretty house
    But you must still think about
    The way it used to be

    Is it real
    He don't love you like I do
    Can we just go back to
    The way it used to be

    'Cause even stars they fade
    And colors turn to grey
    I miss yesterday
    And the way it used to be

    And I can't turn back time
    Even if I tried
    I miss you tonight
    And girl I miss the way it used to be

    And girl I miss the way

    Look at us
    Just look what we've become
    Just a shell of what was once
    The way it used to be

    Even stars they fade
    And colors turn to grey
    I miss yesterday
    And the way it used to be

    And I can't turn back time
    Even if I tried
    I miss you tonight
    And girl I miss the way it used to be

    And girl I miss the way it used to be
    And girl I miss the way it used to be

"My album is called Pages because I write all my songs, and my poems and my goals in life in this notebook," he explained. "So I titled the album 'Pages, because it's really just a few pages from my notebook that turned into the album."

    My Girl Lyrics


    My Girl's mad at me
    I didn't wanna see the film tonight
    I found it hard to say
    She thought I'd had enough of her
    Why can't she see?
    She's lovely to me
    But I like to stay in
    And watch TV on my own
    Every now and then

    My girl's mad at me
    Been on the telephone for an hour
    We hardly said a word
    I tried and tried but I could not be heard
    Why can't I explain?
    Why do I feel this pain?
    'Cause everything I say
    She doesn't understand
    She doesn't realise
    She takes it all the wrong way

    My girl's mad at me
    We argued just the other night
    I thought we'd got it straight
    We talked and talked until it was light
    I thought we'd agreed
    I thought we'd talked it out
    Now when I try to speak
    She says that I don't care
    She says I'm unaware
    And now she says I'm weak

    My Girl
  • Madness keyboard player Mike Barson wrote this on the back of a cigarette packet while employed delivering Fyffes bananas. He explained to the Kent Messenger Newspaper: "The bloke I worked with on the lorry was always talking about 'My girl and me, we're going to live in Essex. My girl and me, we're going to the coast this weekend."
  • Madness emerged from the ska band the Invaders, who formed in London in 1976. They changed their name to Madness in 1978 in honor of an old Prince Buster Ska song. In the UK, they had 16 Top 10 singles between 1979 and 1999, including a #1 in 1982 with "House Of Fun." Their most successful single in the US was the #7 hit "Our House," which peaked at #7.
  • Barson was inspired by the chord progression in Elvis Costello's "Watching The Detectives." He told interviewer Daniel Rachel (The Art of Noise: Conversations with Great Songwriters): "Sometimes you hear a sound or a song that inspires you. I liked that chord progression. On 'My Girl' it's D flat minor going down to A. They had C to A minor and we changed it a semitone. I like those moody/minor key changes. I don't know if I was trying to get it exactly the same; maybe I was."

    You live to die another day, we send you off with a gun
    We're making money hand over fist, that's why we're never done
    We're tired, of keeping scores

    We're tired, we don't want anymore
    We're tired of PermaWar

    I'm tired of building other nations

    Ceasefire, it's our only salvation

    You live and die for the American Way, well that way is done
    The bottom line remains the same, we're making cash by the ton

    We're tired, of keeping scores
    We're tired, of what's in store

  • This was released as one of the intro tracks to Ministry's From Beer To Eternity album. The record was recorded at frontman Al Jourgensen 's 13th Planet compound in El Paso, Texas with guitarists Mike Scaccia and Sin Quirin, drummer Aaron Rossi and bassist Tony Campos. Three days after rough tracks for the songs were completed, Scaccia died from a heart attack he suffered onstage while playing a live show with his band Rigor Mattis.

    The remaining Ministry members were absolutely devastated and Jourgensen announced in March 2013 that From Beer To Eternity would be the band's last ever album, as he didn't want to carry on without Scaccia. "Mikey was my best friend in the world and there's no Ministry without him", he told Noisey . "But I know the music we recorded together during the last weeks of his life had to be released to honor him. So after his funeral, I locked myself in my studio and turned the songs we had recorded into the best and last Ministry record anyone will ever hear. I can't do it without Mikey and I don't want to. So yes, this will be Ministry's last album."
  • Jourgensen recalled the recording of the album to Loudwire : "Me and Mikey, we would just jam around between country songs and we kept coming up with these riffs and Mikey kept going, 'Man we've got to put this out,'" remembered the frontman. "I kept telling him Ministry is done, but he's like, 'No, seriously dude. These riffs are cool; we have to put this out.' I kind of went into it begrudgingly and now I'm really quite happy with the result. I think this album came out like a great middle finger from me and Mikey as the final blow. So, I'm pretty happy with it."
  • The song's music video was shot in July 2013 at Jourgensen's Texan compound and directed by filmmaker/animator Zach Passero whose credits include Ministry's "Lieslieslies," "GhoulDiggers" and "99 Percenters," as well as the feature film Wicked Lake. The clip combines provocative news images taken from World War Two, Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq, with a bad acid trip. Jourgensen portrays three different personalities, representing three different points of view on America's persistence of war: the corrupt political leader, the predatory business man, and the passive observer.

    Wonder Lyrics


    Midnight workings weather down the story line
    I try to find the truth between all the lies
    When Bleeding is feeling and feeling ain't real
    Will I see you when I open my eyes?
    Will I see you when I open my eyes?

    When Breathing's a burden we all have to bear
    And trust is one thing we're taught never to share
    Somehow you just seem to shine
    When loving means breaking and saying goodbye

    And I can't help but Wonder what it is you do
    You help heal the pain, and the thoughts of the truth
    You're a question to the universe, a wonder to the world
    And somehow, when I'm with you, I never get burned

    Caught in a trap of what we're taught to believe
    When night overcomes day, life's so hard to perceive
    And the clock keeps on ticking through night-shattered skies
    Where the stars are all broken, and so are all the ties
    But the one thing remaining is you
    When I'm broken and bleeding, you pull me right through

    And I can't help but wonder what it is you do
    When you help heal the pain, and the thoughts of the truth
    You're a question to the universe, a wonder to the world
    And somehow, when I'm with you there's nothing I'd rather do
    Than be right there
    To escape my own life and all my fear
    And I cant feel
    Am I really real?

    Come and wipe all my tears
    Come and wipe all my tears

    And I can't help but wonder what it is you do
    You help heal the pain, and the thoughts of the truth
    You're a question to the universe, a wonder to the world
    And somehow, when I'm with you...
    I can't help but wonder what it is you do
    You help heal the pain, and the thoughts of the truth
    You're a question to the universe, a wonder to the world
    And somehow, when I'm with you, I never get burned

    With his six string knife
    And his street wise pride
    The boy was a man before his time
    And she knew
    All their dreams would come true

    But ya see Frankie was fast
    Too fast to know
    He wouldn't go slow
    Until his lethal dose
    And she knows
    He'll finally come too close

    (Chorus)
    Well On With The Show
    Going on with the show
    Come on baby
    No, no, no
    Oh my, my, my...(repeat)

    He was bad
    He was never good
    But one thing that he understood
    And she knew
    All those lies would come true

    The time has come and
    He's paid his dues
    Suzy finally got the news
    She always knew
    This day would come soon

    [Chorus: Repeat 2X]
    He was stopped on a dime
    With a switchblade knife
    Some damn punk went and
    Took Frankie's life
    And she knew
    She'd have to pull through

    Broken down, with his broken dreams
    With a wink of an eye
    Said Suzy, listen to me
    You must go
    On with the show

    Go on with the show
    Going on with the show
    Come on baby
    No no no
    Oh my my my my...(repeat)
    Oh baby

    Hook In Mouth Lyrics


    A cockroach in the concrete, courthouse tan and beady eyes.
    A slouch with fallen arches, purging truths into great lies.
    A little man with a big eraser, changing history
    Procedures that he's programmed to, all he hears and sees.

    Altering the facts and figures, events and every issue.
    Make a person disappear, and no one will ever miss you.

    Rewrites every story, every poem that ever was.
    Eliminates incompetence, and those who break the laws.
    Follow the instructions of the New Ways' Evil Book of Rules.
    Replacing rights with wrongs, the files and records in the schools.

    You say you've got the answers, well who asked you anyway?
    Ever think maybe it was meant to be this way?
    Don't try to fool us, we know the worst is yet to come.
    I believe my kingdom will come.

    F is for fighting, R is for red,
    Ancestors' blood in battles they've shed.
    E, we elect them, E, we eject them,
    In the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
    D, for your dying, O, your overture,
    M, they will cover your grave with manure.
    This spells out freedom, it means nothing to me,
    As long as there's a P.M.R.C.

    F is for fighting, R is for red,
    Ancestors' blood in battles they've shed.
    E, we elect them, E, we eject them,
    In the land of the free and the home of the brave.
    D, for your dying, O, your overture,
    M is for money and you know what that cures.
    This spells out freedom, it means nothing to me,
    As long as there's a P.M.R.C.

    Put your hand right up my shirt,
    Pull the strings that make me work,
    Jaws will part, words fall out,
    like a fish with Hook In Mouth.

    Rewrites every story, every poem that ever was.
    Eliminates incompetence, and those who break the laws.
    Follow the instructions of the New Ways' Evil Book of Rules.
    Replacing rights with wrongs, the files and records in the schools.

    I'm not a fish
    Hook in mouth
    I'm a man

    Hook In Mouth
  • This song talks about the Parents Music Resource Council (the PMRC), an American advocacy group headed by Tipper Gore that tried to restrict the sale of certain music. Many musicians believed the PMRC was a threat to freedom of speech.
  • The chorus of the song spells out "Freedom" in acronym:

    F is for fighting
    R is for red, ancestors' blood in battles they've shed.
    E, we elect them
    E, we eject them, in the land of the free, and the home of the brave.
    D, for your dying,
    O, your overture,
    M, they will cover your grave with manure.
    This spells out freedom, it means nothing to me,
    As long as there's a P.M.R.C.
  • Cop killer Justin Bourque posted the lyrics to the song hours before he shot dead three police officers and wounded two others in the Canadian city of Moncton on June 4, 2014.

    Don't Forget About Us Lyrics


    (Don't Forget About Us) Don't baby, don't baby, don't let it go
    No baby, no baby, no baby no
    Don't baby, don't baby, don't let it go
    My baby boy

    Just let it die
    With no goodbyes
    Details don't matter
    We both paid the price
    Tears in my eyes
    You know sometimes
    It'd be like that baby

    Now every time I see you
    I pretend I'm fine
    When I wanna reach out to you
    But I turn and I walk and I let it ride
    Baby I must confess
    We were bigger than anything
    Remember us at our best
    And don't forget about

    Late nights, playin' in the dark
    And wakin' up inside my arms
    Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
    I can see it in your eyes
    You still want it
    So don't forget about us
    I'm just speaking from experience
    Nothing can compare to your first true love
    So I hope this will remind you
    When it's for real, it's forever
    So don't forget about us

    Oh they say
    That you're in a new relationship
    But we both know
    Nothing comes close to
    What we had, it perseveres
    That we both can't forget it
    How good we used to get it

    There's only one me and you
    And how we used to shine
    No matter what you go through
    We are one, that's a fact
    That you can't deny
    So baby we just can't let
    The fire pass us by
    Forever we'd both regret
    So don't forget about

    Late nights, playin' in the dark
    And wakin' up inside my arms
    Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
    I can see it in your eyes
    You still want it
    So don't forget about us
    I'm just speaking from experience
    Nothing can compare to your first true love
    So I hope this will remind you
    When it's for real, it's forever
    So don't forget about us

    And if she's got your head all messed up now
    That's the trickery
    She'll wanna have like you know how this lovin' used to be
    I bet she can't do like me
    She'll never be M-C

    Baby don't you, don't you forget about us
    Late nights, playin' in the dark
    And wakin' up inside my arms
    Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
    I can see it in your eyes
    You still want it
    So don't forget about us
    I'm just speaking from experience
    Nothing can compare to your first true love
    So I hope this will remind you
    When it's for real, it's forever
    So don't forget about us

    Late nights, playin' in the dark
    And wakin' up inside my arms
    Boy, you'll always be in my heart and
    I can see it in your eyes
    You still want it
    So don't forget about us
    I'm just speaking from experience
    Nothing can compare to your first true love
    So I hope this will remind you
    When it's for real, it's forever
    So don't forget about us

    Don't baby, don't baby, don't let it go
    No baby, no baby, no baby no
    Don't baby, don't baby, don't let it go

    When it's for real, it's forever
    So don't forget about us.

    Don't Forget About Us
  • In this song, Mariah sings about a relationship that didn't work out. Unlike "We Belong Together," which was a huge hit from the album, she sounds confident instead of heartbroken. She makes sure her ex remembers the true love they had and reminds him that his new girl will never be her.
  • This was Mariah Carey's 17th American #1 song, putting Carey into a tie for second place with Elvis Presley among artists with the most #1 hits in the Rock era in the US, behind the Beatles' 20.

    Unbreak My Mixtape
  • This drum and bass breakup anthem finds M.I.A. addressing an ex by sending him a song chock full of references to other ditties. She croons:

    "Here's a mixtape that I made, let's take a break
    Don't wanna fuss away, baby if it's too late
    While I get my life so it is a mixtape."
  • The song title is a reference to Toni Braxton's "Un-Break My Heart," whilst tunes sampled include Carly Simon's "Why," Fresh 4's cover of Rose Royce's "Wishing On A Star" and the acoustic guitar and vocal from Blur's "Tender." There is an extended snippet of Karen Dalton's "I Love You More Than Words Can Say" at the end.

    Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky Lyrics


    You have your very own number
    They dress your cage in its nature
    Once you roared now you just grunt lame
    Pace around pathetic pound games

    want to get out won't miss you sensaround
    To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
    want to get out in here you're bred dead quick
    For the outside
    The Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky

    They drag sticks along your walls
    Harvest your ovaries dead mothers crawl
    Here comes warden, Christ, temple, elders
    Environment not yours you see through it all

    want to get out won't miss you sensaround
    Carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
    want to get out in here you're bred dead quick
    For the outside
    The small black flowers that grow in the sky

    Here chewing your tail is joy

    Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky
  • Manic Street Preachers guitarist Richey Edwards wrote the lyrics, marking one of his last contributions to the band. Edwards disappeared in February 1995 and was never found. The band soldiered on without him, not knowing if he was dead or in hiding. Everything Must Go was the first album released in his absence, and it contained five songs he co-wrote.

    "Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky" empathizes with a zoo animal's state of mind while in captivity, an insight into how Edwards was feeling. Manic's bass player Nicky Wire, who was very close to Edwards, told Dazed & Confused that Edwards wrote the song about "getting born in zoos and just going mad with boredom." Wire added, "But if you read it, you'd just think it was about him."
  • This gentle number is a rare rock song with a harp; it was played by Julie Aliss, who also appeared on the 1987 Siouxsie and the Banshees album Through the Looking Glass.
