Elton John – "I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues" (1983)


"Wait on me girl
Cry in the night if it helps
But more than ever I simply love you
More than I love life itself

And I guess that's why they call it the blues
Time on my hands could be time spent with you
Laughing like children, living like lovers
Rolling like thunder under the covers
And I guess that's why they call it the blues"


Soft Cell – "Tainted Love" (1981)



Beck – "Girl" (2005)


"And I know I'm gonna steal her eye
She doesn't even know what's wrong
And I know I'm gonna make her die
Take her where her soul belongs
And I know I'm gonna steal her eye
Nothing that I wouldn't try

Hey, my sun-eyed girl"


The Black Crowes – "Hard To Handle" (1990)


"Baby, here I am
The man on your scene
I can give you what you want
But you got to come home with me

I forgot some good old lovin'
And I got some more in store
When I get to thrown it on you
You got to come runnin' back for more

Once it come along a dime by the dozen
That ain't nothin' but drug store lovin'
Hey little thing, let me light your candle
'Cause mama I'm sure hard to handle, now, gets around"

No, we ain't gonna take it
Oh we're not gonna take it anymore"

Blinding me with science – science
I can smell the chemicals"
