Pop Song For Us Rejects [by Silverchair]
From the album:



Lyrics:

Addiction's held you back
But you don't care
'Cause you're on a high again
And it's not fair
Consuming alcohol
While I gotta drive
Take a hit from the drugs you stole
And try to survive

Since your life was over
You haven't yet been sober
You, you have held me back so long
Everything you do is wrong

Now I gotta dump you
Continue my life too
I tried to help you
Don't care what you do

Your state of mind's improved
But we're still apart
I visited you'd moved
Don't know where to start
Your life's and open cold sore
Got to get out of the cream
Now I'm thinking positive
But I know it's a dream

Since your life was over
You haven't yet been sober
You, you have held me back so long
Everything you do is wrong

Now I gotta dump you
Continue my life too
I tried to help you
Don't care what you do

You died yesterday
You died yesterday
You died yesterday
You died yesterday

Why this song?

Why not? Silverchair is one of the greatest bands. This song just proves it. Great lyrics, amazing voice -- which becomes all the more great when you know that Silverchair isn't one of those groups who have the sound altered to make it all the perfect pitch. Great to sing to, in the shower or otherwise!

6 Underground [by Sneaker Pimps]
From the album:



Lyrics:

Take me down
6 underground
The ground beneath your feet
Laid out low
Nothing to go
Nowhere a way to meet
I've got a head full of drought
Down here, so far off
Losing out, round here

Overground, watch this space
I'm open to falling from grace

Calm me down
Bring it round
Too way high off your street
I can see like nothing else
In me you're better than I wanna be

Don't think 'cause I understand I care
Don't think 'cause I'm talking we're friends

Overground, watch this space
I'm open to falling from grace

Don't think 'cause I understand I care
Don't think 'cause I'm talking we're friends

Overground, watch this space
I'm open to falling from grace

Talk me down, safe and sound,
Too strung up to sleep
Wear me out
Scream and shout
Swear my time's never cheap
I fake my life like I've lived;
Too much
I take whatever you're given;
Not enough

Overground, watch this space
I'm open to falling from grace

Why this song?

Just because it was the best song that I heard today. It makes for great 'mood' music, you know, the kind that puts you into that great place far, far away from anything that is bothering you here on our little planet known as the Earth. Just a little relief from the everyday saga that is my life. I needed a good song like this today!

Seven Nation Army [by The White Stripes]
From the album:



Lyrics:

I'm gonna fight 'em off
A seven nation army couldn't hold me back
They're gonna rip it off
Taking their time right behind my back
And I'm talkin' to myself at night
Because I can't forget
Back and forth through my mind
Behind a cigarette

And the message comin' from my eyes says leave it alone...

Don't wanna hear about it
Every single one's got a story to tell
Everyone knows about it
From the Queen of England to the hounds of hell
And if I catch it comin' back my way
I'm gonna serve it to you
And that ain't what you want to hear
But that's what I'll do

And the feeling coming from my bones says find a home...

I'm going to Wichita
Far from this opera forevermore
I'm gonna work the straw
Make the sweat drip out of every pore
And I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding, and I'm bleeding
Right before the lord
All the words are gonna bleed from me
And I will think no more

And the stains comin' from my blood tell me "Go back home"...

Why this song?

It's such a simple song, but the sound of the guitar and the drums combine for an amazing sounding song. I can honestly say it took me a few listens to actually like the song, but after that, it was like a light flicking on -- bang -- I loved it. So, if you've only heard it once, and leave the room whenever you hear it again because you dislike it, give it a few more listens, you just might end up loving it. I did!

Pedal to the Metal [by Kazzer]
From the album:

Go For Broke
(Sorry, no image!)

Lyrics:

I'm like a 454
With the 4 on the floor
Deuce coupe coming at you
Avoiding the capture
Far from stock I'm chopped and ready to rock
In the city of steel
Catch me crusin down the block
But nowadays are difficult
I'm out on my own
Drive an 86 Jetta
Hoping that I could do better
But my car keeps me humble
In the concrete jungle
Despite the wear and tear
It seems to always get me there

Rebuilt the motor because
She decided to blow
And what do you know
Someone stole my stereo, when it's
Time to go I put my foot on the floor
Let the deasel do the work
I ain't complaining no more
Highways and straighaways
Offroads and open roads
No matter where I go
I'll still be making the show
It's kinda like life
And life treats you good
It's not what's on the outside
It's what's under the hood

Put the pedal to the metal and I'm off and never getting lost
Which way will I turn when roads cross
Press the petal to the metal little more when it's scary
But one thing for sure, keep my foot on the floor
Put the pedal to the metal and I'm off and never getting lost
Which way will I turn when roads cross
Press the petal to the metal little more when it's scary
But one thing for sure, keep my foot on the floor

It doesn't matter what you drive
It's how you drive what you got
Discipline you can win
Just let the tire spin
And begin
The journey of life with each stride
Meet me on the other side
Let me know when you arrive
Sometimes we collide
Be sure that your insured
Got the back up plan
Alternitive program
Who I am, Doesn't reflect material wealth
My vehicle approaches stealth
I'm coming with the wickedness so I can take them out with my style
Style style style style when I bust the true school watch this hip hop

Put the pedal to the metal and I'm off and never getting lost
Which way will I turn when roads cross
Press the petal to the metal little more when it's scary
But one thing for sure, keep my foot on the floor
Put the pedal to the metal and I'm off and never getting lost
Which way will I turn when roads cross
Press the petal to the metal little more when it's scary
But one thing for sure, keep my foot on the floor

Won't stop drivin till it's over
Still be crusin when the sun goes down
Won't stop drivin till it's over
Still be crusin when the sun goes down

Put the pedal to the metal and I'm off and never getting lost
Which way will I turn when roads cross
Press the petal to the metal little more when it's scary
But one thing for sure, keep my foot on the floor
Put the pedal to the metal and I'm off and never getting lost
Which way will I turn when roads cross
Press the petal to the metal little more when it's scary
But one thing for sure, keep my foot on the floor

Put the pedal to the metal and I'm off
Put the pedal to the metal and I'm off
Pedal to the metal and I'm off

With a 62 bird and I'm out like that and I'm out

Why this song?

Well, I chose this song because it is catchy, fun and is a great way to put an end to my weekend full of sports car racing. (That would be why the last few days are minus the song of the day. Not that being at home would have helped -- My area was one of the lucky ones without power. Fun!) This song is not only about cars, which I love, but also feature the great sounds that they produce. Warning, this song grows on you. It did me anyhow!

Black Hole Sun [by Soundgarden]
From the album:




Lyrics:

In my eyes
Indisposed
In disguise
As no one knows
Hides the face
Lies the snake
The sun
In my disgrace

Boiling heat
Summer stench
'Neath the black
The sky looks dead
Call my name
Through the cream
And I'll hear you
Scream again

Black hole sun
Won't you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won't you come
Won't you come

Stuttering
Cold and damp
Steal the warm wind
Tired friend
Times are gone
For honest men
And sometimes
Far too long
For snakes

In my shoes
A walking sleep
And my youth
I pray to keep
Heaven send
Hell away
No one sings
Like you
Anymore

Hang my head
Drown my fear
Till you all just
Disappear

Why this song?

One of the great classics of my past. Lives on through the ages and in my honest opinion continues to be one of the best songs I've ever had the pleasure of enjoying. Somehow, I managed to get it stuck in my head this morning -- not that I minded in the least. In fact, I dug it out of my ever-growing stack of music, popped it into my CD player and used this opportunity to really appreciate it once more as it is rarely heard on the radio these days.

Tourniquet [by Evanescence]
From the album:




Lyrics:

I tried to kill the pain
But only brought more
I lay dying
And I'm pouring crimson regret and betrayal
I'm dying praying bleeding and screaming
Am I too lost to be saved
Am I too lost?

My God my tourniquet
Return to me salvation
My God my tourniquet
Return to me salvation

Do you remember me
Lost for so long
Will you be on the other side
Or will you forget me
I'm dying praying bleeding and screaming
Am I too lost to be saved
Am I too lost?

My God my tourniquet
Return to me salvation
My God my tourniquet
Return to me salvation

My wounds cry for the grave
My soul cries for deliverance
Will I be denied Christ
Tourniquet
My suicide


Why this song?

The answer's simple. The song caught my attention from the first time I heard it. I loved it, remembered it, played it a few dozen times and still love it. If that isn't worth the $16 I spent for the album, I don't know what is! It has a great tune, and is fun to sing along to as well.
