Pavement - We Dance

There is no castration fear
In a chair you will be with me
We’ll dance [x4]
But no one will dance with us
In this zany town
Chim-chim-chim-cheerie sing a song of praise
For your elders, they’re in the back
Pick out some brazilian nuts for your engagement
Check that expiration date, man,
It’s later than you think
You can’t enjoy yourself, I can’t enjoy myself [x2]
Move that swing and
Watch it break, strength like an ox
But I won’t be there to leave you ah-ah-ah
’cause I don’t have a clue anymore
Maybe we could dance [x3] together
Together
Together
Together
First time you’ll see
And then you’ll be
Five times forever
And you’ll never get lost

Ernie - I Don't Want to Live on the Moon

Well, I'd like to visit the moon
On a rocket ship high in the air
Yes, I'd like to visit the moon
But I don't think I'd like to live there
Though I'd like to look down at the earth from above
I would miss all the places and people I love
So although I might like it for one afternoon
I don't want to live on the moon

I'd like to travel under the sea
I could meet all the fish everywhere
Yes, I'd travel under the sea
But I don't think I'd like to live there
I might stay for a day there if I had my wish
But there's not much to do when your friends are all fish
And an oyster and clam aren't real family
So I don't want to live in the sea

I'd like to visit the jungle, hear the lions roar
Go back in time and meet a dinosaur
There's so many strange places I'd like to be
But none of them permanently

So if I should visit the moon
Well, I'll dance on a moonbeam and then
I will make a wish on a star
And I'll wish I was home once again
Though I'd like to look down at the earth from above
I would miss all the places and people I love
So although I may go I'll be coming home soon
'Cause I don't want to live on the moon
No, I don't want to live on the moon

The Microphones - The Moon

Honestly, one of my absolute favorite songs. It's just...perfectly written and performed.


i drove up to the city at night and found the place where you grew up
and in the night we stayed and we walked around and stayed up late
under city lights i spent the night
next to you in the place where you grew up
next to you when you miraculously woke up
in your parents house, i lied in bed with you
i went back there to feel alone there
i went back there to wipe it clean
i took the lights and the radio tower out of dream
and we went all the way up to the small town where i'm from
the foggy air and the wind and the mountain top
we clung to rocks and we looked off
you held my hand and almost got to start feeling me
i finally felt like i was breathing free
and under swaying trees we fell asleep and had the same dream
the stars were bright, now we dream the same every night
on my island home i spent some time with you
i went back to feel alone there
i went back there by myself
and gave up on everything we really felt
we found a precious place in the sand right out in the wind
and we lied under a blanket and heard the furious sound
of roaring waves, the pounding surfs. 2 bodies on the earth
it was intense just getting to be there next to you
and you were trying to get me then
i was happy to just let you in
i went back and wished i hadn't
i went back and felt regret
i went to the beach and stared west
every night when the sun went down in the town where we live
the empty streets were lit up by reflected light
from a distant sun bouncing off a glowing ball of rock
we just lied on the roof and watched the moon, the moon
the blue light of the moon
we didn't talk and silently we both felt powerful
like the moon my chest was full
because we both knew we were floating in space over molten rock
and we felt safe and discovered that our skin is soft
there's nothing left except certain death
and that was comforting out under the moon
i went out last night to forget that
i went out and stared it down
but the moon just stared back at me
and in it's light i saw my two feet on the ground

Nieces Pieces is EASILY one of the most depressing songs Ive ever heard.

Xiu Xiu - Nieces Pieces

can't wait to watch you get older
can't wait to meet the first boy that breaks your life
can't wait till you realize the family you've been born into......
can't wait to watch you turn from good to bad
can't wait to tell you that grandpa made your mommy play stripper while your uncle watched
can't wait to tell you that i punched your mommy in the chest in front of her friends
can't wait till you realize your mommy's heart is broken
can't wait to watch you grow up around the people who broke it
lalalalalala

You forgot to mention pretentious too.

Explain to me how Xiu Xiu is pretentious, aside from "I Broke Up".

Are you kidding? They practically define the word. I hold no patience for these fucking weepy 'deep' bands with 'insightful' lyrics. It's worse than anime fans as far as I'm concerned.

The only thing I find pretentious about them is the vocals. But if thats your opinion on them, fine, just stop prodding them with insults.

No. I'm not going to stop criticising them just because you like them.

Yes, the only thing pretentious about them is the vocals (and lyrics). Since it's a heavily vocal band, that kinda counts for something.

Even if I didn't like them, its hard to ignore the fact that you insult them whenever there mentioned, which is annoying.

Yeah, because I'm annoyed by them whenever they're mentioned.

salt n pepa - whattaman

I wanna take a minute or two, and give much respect due
To the man that's made a difference in my world
And although most men are ho's he flows on the down low
Cuz I never heard about him with another girl
But I don't sweat it because it's just pathetic
To let it get me involved in that he said/ she said crowd
And believe me y'all, he's worth it
So here's to the future cuz we got through the past
I finally found someone that can make me laugh
(Ha ha ha) You so crazy
I think I wanna have your baby

What a man, what a man, what a man,
What a mighty good man

My man is smooth like Barry, and his voice got bass
A body like Arnold with a Denzel face
He's smart like a doctor with a real good rep
And when he comes home he's relaxed with Pep
He always got a gift for me every time I see him
A lot of snot-nosed ex-flames couldn't be him
He never ran a corny line once to me yet
So I give him stuff that he'll never forget
He keeps me on Cloud Nine just like the Temps
He's not a fake wannabe tryin' to be a pimp
He dresses like a dapper don, but even in jeans
He's a God-sent original, the man of my dreams

Yes, my man says he loves me, never says he loves me not
Tryin' to rush me good and touch me in the right spot
See other guys that I've had, they tried to play all that mac shit
But every time they tried I said, "That's not it"
But not this man, he's got the right potion
Baby, rub it down and make it smooth like lotion
Yeah, the ritual highway to heaven
>From seven to seven he's got me open like Seven Eleven
And yes, it's me that he's choosin'
With him I'm never losin', and he knows that my name is not Susan
He always has heavy conversation for the mind
Which means a lot to me cuz good en are hard to find

CHORUS

My man gives real loving that's why I call him Killer
He's not a wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am, he's a thriller
He takes his time and does everything right
Knocks me out with one shot for the rest of the night
He's a real smooth brother, never in a rush
And he gives me goose pimples with every single touch
Spends quality time with his kids when he can
Secure his manhood cuz he's a real man
A lover and a fighter and he'll knock a knucker out
Don't take him for a sucker cuz that's what he's about
Every time I need him, he always got my back
Never disrespectful cuz his mama taught him that

She keeps Moet and Chandon in her pretty cabinet
'Let them eat cake' she says
Just like Marie Antoinette
A built in remedy for Khrushchev and Kennedy
And anytime an invitation you can decline
Caviar and cigarettes well versed in etiquette
Extr'ordinarily nice

She's a killer queen gunpowder gelatine
Dynamite with a lazer beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite wanna try?

To avoid complications
She never kept the same address
In conversation she spoke just like a baroness
Met a man from China went down to Geisha Minah
Then again incidentally if you're that way inclined (she's a killer queen)
Perfume came naturally from Paris (naturally)
For cars she couldn't care less
Fastidious and precise

She's a killer queen gunpowder gelatine
Dynamite with a lazer beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite wanna try?

Drop of a hat she's as willing as a playful as a pussy cat
Then momentarily out of action
Temporarily out of gas
To absolutely drive you wild, wild
She's out to get you

She's a killer queen gunpowder gelatine
Dynamite with a lazer beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite wanna try?
