Give Up the Grudge [by Gob]
From the album:



Lyrics:

Give up the grudge
Give up the grudge

Don't make me listen to the stupid broken record again
The needle skippin' and repeatin' never reaching the end
You know your bitchin' and complainin' like you got it so tough
We're sick of all your cryin' will you ever shut up?

So keep bleeding your fake blood
Till no one even see's it
If that's the best you can make up
At least act like you mean it

Give up the grudge
Shut your fuckin' mouth
Why you gotta judge
Everbody but yourself
Take a look around you
There ain't nobody home
I may be a loser
But at least I'm not alone

Your Mercedes won't start
Yeah that's a cryin' shame
I guess 90k a year buys
Nothing but complaints
The people in my neighborhood
Think that I'm a threat
While the boss gets richer
They get deeper in debt

So keep bleeding your fake blood
Till no one even see's it
If that's the best you can make up
At least act like you mean it

Give up the grudge
Shut your fuckin' mouth
Why you gotta judge
Everbody but yourself
Take a look around you
There ain't nobody home
I may be a loser
But at least I'm not alone

Give up the grudge
Shut your fuckin' mouth
Why you gotta judge
Everbody but yourself
Take a look around you
There ain't nobody home
I may be a loser
But at least I'm not alone

Give up the grudge
Shut your fuckin' mouth
Why you gotta judge
Everbody but yourself
(at least I'm not alone)
Take a look around you
There ain't nobody home
I may be a loser
But at least I'm not alone
(at least I'm not alone)

Give up the grudge
Shut your fuckin' mouth
Why you gotta judge
Everbody but yourself
Take a look around you
There ain't nobody home
I may be a loser
But at least I'm not alone

Give up the grudge
Shut your fuckin' mouth
Why you gotta judge
Everbody but yourself
(at least I'm not alone)
Take a look around you
There ain't nobody home
I may be a loser
But at least I'm not alone
(at least I'm not alone)

Give up the grudge
Shut your fuckin' mouth
Why you gotta judge
Everbody but yourself
(at least I'm not alone)
Take a look around you
There ain't nobody home
I may be a loser
But at least I'm not alone
(at least I'm not alone)

Why this song?

It's fun and it's fast and I'm sick and tired of people judging me. At least that's how I'm feeling today. I'm having one of those days, okay? The lyrics are so true, and I am able to relate to them easily. This is a just a great song to let go of everything and sing to.

I Hate Everything About You [by Three Days Grace]
From the album:



Lyrics:

Everytime we lie awake
After every hit we take
Every feeling that I get
But I haven't missed you yet
Every room-mate kept awake
By every silent scream we make
All the feelings that I get
But I still don't miss you yet

Only when I stop to think about it

I hate everything about you
Why do I love you
I hate everything about you
Why do I love you

Everytime we lie awake
After every hit we take
Every feeling that I get
But I haven't missed you yet

Only when I stop to think about it

I hate everything about you
Why do I love you
I hate everything about you
Why do I love you

Only when I stop to think about you
I know
Only when you stop to think about me
Do you know

I hate everything about you
Why do I love you
You hate everything about me
Why do you love me

I hate
You hate
I hate
You love me

I hate everything about you
Why do I love you

Why this song?

This song has a great beat and guitar backing. I absolutely love the music behind the vocals and when I close my eyes, I'm able to get lost in the sweet sounds filling my ears. Plus the lyrics, I've been there. We all have, I'm sure. Sometimes I still feel I am. Just one of those songs that stick with you when you first hear it and is a pleasure to listen to turned up loud through a set of headphones.

Dream On [by Depeche Mode]
From the album:



Lyrics:

Can you feel a little love

As your bony fingers close around me
Long and spindly
Death becomes me
Heaven can you see what I see

Hey you pale and sickly child
You're death and living reconciled
Been walking home a crooked mile

Paying debt to karma
You party for a living
What you take won't kill you
But careful what you're giving

There's no time for hesitating
Pain is ready, pain is waiting
Primed to do it's educating

Unwanted, uninvited kin
It creeps beneath your crawling skin
It lives without it lives within you

Feel the fever coming
You're shaking and twitching
You can scratch all over
But that won't stop you itching

Can you feel a little love
Can you feel a little love

Dream on dream on

Blame it on your karmic curse
Oh shame upon the universe
It knows its lines
It's well rehearsed

It sucked you in, it dragged you down
To where there is no hallowed ground
Where holiness is never found

Paying debt to karma
You party for a living
What you take won't kill you
But careful what you're giving

Can you feel a little love
Can you feel a little love

Dream on dream on

Can you feel a little love
Can you feel a little love

Dream on dream on
Dream on dream on
Dream on dream on

Why this song?

It's just such a fun song, one that I've newly discovered in fact. The guitar in the song is outstanding, combined with a tune that is filled with rhythmic perfection. This song is just one of the great ones I find myself listening to over and over. Even after several repeats, I find myself with that giddy sort of feeling of discovering something new to myself. Don't let the fact that the band is Depeche Mode turn you off. This song is nothing like their typical music.

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.
