The Black Keys – Tighten Up

Tighten Up is the first single from The Black Key’s album “Brothers”…I love the tempo and the tune of this track…Enjoy

 

I wanted love, I needed love
Most of all, Most of all..

Someone said “True Love” was dead
but I’m bound to fall for you.

Oh what can I do?

Take my badge, but my heart remains
Loving you, Baby, child..

Tighten up on your reigns, you’re running wild.

It’s true.

Sick for days…

So many ways…

I’m aching now, I’m aching now…

It’s times like these, I need relief.
Please show me how, Show me how..

Together..

When I was young, and moving fast,
Nothing slowed me down, Slowed me down.

Now I let the others pass,
I’ve come around, Come around.

‘Cause I found.

Living just to keep going
Going just to be sane.

All the while I know
It’s such a shame.

I don’t need to get steady,
I know just what to feel.

Telling me to be ready, my dear.

Lady Antebellum – Need You Now

Need You Now has been nominated for the 53rd Grammy Awards ….

Lady Antebellum is from America , Nashville..

The lyrics describe placing a call to someone in the middle of the night due to being lonely and longing for companionship.

 

Picture perfect memories scattered all around the floor
Reaching for the phone ’cause I can’t fight it anymore
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind???
For me it happens all the time

It’s a quarter after one, I’m all alone and I need you now
Said I wouldn’t call but I lost all control and I need you now
And I don’t know how I can do without, I just need you now

Another shot of whiskey can’t stop looking at the door
Wishing you’d come sweeping in the way you did before
And I wonder if I ever cross your mind???
For me it happens all the time

It’s a quarter after one I’m a little drunk and I need you now
Said I wouldn’t call but I lost all control and I need you now
And I don’t know how I can do without I just need you now

Guess I’d rather hurt than feel nothing at all

It’s a quarter after one I’m all alone and I need you now
And I said I wouldn’t call but I’m a little drunk and I need you now
And I don’t know how I can do without I just need you now
I just need you now
Oh baby I need you now

Paramore – The Only Exception

Paramore have been nominated for the Grammy this year..

Only Exception sounds more like Coldplay’s Yellow.. Its a sweet song.. i guess probably Hayley witnessed her parents divorce in her childhood days..

This song speaks a lot about Paramore’s creativity.. The range that they can go too..

 

When I was younger
I saw my daddy cry
And curse at the wind
He broke his own heart
And I watched as he tried to reassemble it

And my mama swore
That she would never let herself forget
And that was the day that I promised
I’d never sing of love
If it does not exist

But, darling, you are the only exception
But you are the only exception
But you are the only exception
But you are the only exception

Well, maybe I know somewhere
Deep in my soul
That love never lasts
And we’ve got to find other ways
To make it alone
Or keep a straight face

And I’ve always lived like this
Keeping a comfortable distance
And up until now, I had sworn to myself
That I’m content with loneliness
Because none of it was ever worth the risk

Well, you are the only exception
Well, you are the only exception
Well, you are the only exception
Well, you are the only exception

I’ve got a tight grip on reality
But I can’t let go of what’s in front of me here
I know you’re leaving in the morning when you wake up
Leave me of some kind of proof it’s not a dream, oh

You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
You are the only exception
And I’m on my way to believing
Oh, and I’m on my way to believing

Stone Temple Pilots – Between The Lines

Between The Lines is nominated for the Best Hard Rock performance in this years Grammys.. Though i still have high regards for Plush…

 

lovely disguise, read between the lines
you rock the magic plane with no abbreviation
three, four, you sell what you bought
but there ain’t no magic pen to get back what you lost

i like it when we talk about love
i like it when we talk about love
you always were my favorite drug
even when we used to take drugs

even when we used to take…

penguins don’t fly
crocodile sunday smile
really like to fish but don’t like superficial people
shoe store heard it all before
from pearly whites to pearly gates
what do we have to argue about

i like it when we talk about love
i like it when we talk about love
you always were my favorite drug
even when we used to take drugs

even when we used to take…

leave me all alone before
(get out the way)
never did what she was told
(get out the way)
seems to play at time of war
(get out the way)
less is big and listens more

lovely disguise, read between the lines
you rock the magic plane with no abbreviation
three, four, you sell what you bought
but there ain’t no magic pen to get back what you lost

i like it when we talk about love
i like it when we talk about love
you always were my favorite drug
even when we used to take drugs

even when we used to take…

The Weary Kind – Ryan Bingham

Acamedy award winning track , Its written and performed by Ryan Bingham… This is one of the best tracks of 2009…

 

Your heart�s on the loose
You rolled them seven�s with nothing lose
And this ain�t no place for the weary kind

You called all your shots
Shooting 8 ball at the corner truck stop
Somehow this don�t feel like home anymore

And this ain�t no place for the weary kind
And this ain�t no place to lose your mind
And this ain�t no place to fall behind
Pick up your crazy heart and give it one more try

Your body aches�
Playing your guitar and sweating out the hate
The days and the nights all feel the same

Whiskey has been a thorn in your side
and it doesn�t forget
the highway that calls for your heart inside

And this ain�t no place for the weary kind
And this ain�t no place to lose your mind
And this ain�t no place to fall behind
Pick up your crazy heart and give it one more try

Your lovers won�t kiss�
It�s too damn far from your fingertips
You are the man that ruined her world

Your heart�s on the loose
You rolled them seven�s with nothing lose
And this ain�t no place for the weary kind

Train – Hey Soul Sister

The most downloaded song of TRAIN…It is more of a INXS kind of a track..A decent mid tempo song played on a ukelele..

 

Your lipstick stains
On the front lobe of my left side brains.
I knew I wouldn’t forget you,
And so I went and let you blow my mind.
Your sweet moonbeam,
The smell of you in every single dream I dream,
I knew when we collided,
You’re the one I have decided
Who’s one of my kind.

Hey soul sister,
Ain’t that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo,
The way you move ain’t fair you know.
Hey soul sister,
I don’t want to miss a single thing you do…
Tonight.
Heeey, Heeeeey heeeey!

Just in time,
I’m so glad you have a one track mind like me.
You gave my life direction,
A game show love connection, we can’t deny-i-i-i.
I’m so obsessed,
My heart is bound to beat right out my untrimmed chest.
I believe in you, “Like a Virgin,” you’re Madonna,
And I’m always gonna want to blow your mind.

Hey soul sister,
Ain’t that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo,
The way you move ain’t fair you know.
Hey soul sister,
I don’t want to miss a single thing you do…
Tonight.
Heeey, Heeeeey heeeey!

The way you can cut a rug,
Watching you’s the only drug I need.
You’re so gangsta, I’m so thug,
You’re the only one I’m dreaming of.
You see, I can be myself now finally,
In fact there’s nothing I can’t be.
I want the world to see you’ll be with me.

Hey soul sister,
Ain’t that Mr. Mister on the radio, stereo,
The way you move ain’t fair you know.
Hey soul sister
I don’t want to miss a single thing you do tonight,
Hey soul sister,
I don’t want to miss a single thing you do…
Tonight.

Them Crooked Vultures – New Fangs

Them Crooked Vultures is John Paul Jones(Led Zeppelin), Dave Grohl(Ex Nirvana, Foo Fighters) & Josh Homme(Record Producer)… Listen to their Grammy nominated track “New Fangs”

New fang,
no thang.
Had it made
to parade,
found a sucker,
now I want another.

Stand up,
step aside,
open wide,
handing out & on
UNTIL THE FEELINGS GONE

Want to?
Yes, I do.
Wanna learn,
taking turns getting carpet burns.

Loose lips,
lipstick spit.
Come or go,
I think it’s both I gotta know.

Sometimes you break a finger on the upper hand,
I think you’ve got me confused with a better man.
Sometimes you break a finger on the upper hand,
I know you’ve got me confused…

…for a better man.

No slack,
cadillac,
couldn’t quit,
gums flap so…
HERE’S YOUR TEETH BACK

Accept
what I left
far behind in a time
when my mind was like a landmine.

Tailgate,
by the lake,
too much, too young,
every button gonna come undone.

Tightrope,
no joke,
nothing left,
so you go baroque.
