    How 'bout getting off these antibiotics
    How 'bout stopping eating when I'm full up
    How 'bout them transparent dangling carrots
    How 'bout that ever elusive kudo
    Thank you India
    Thank you terror
    Thank you disillusionment
    Thank you frailty
    Thank you consequence
    Thank you thank you silence
    How 'bout me not blaming you for everything
    How 'bout me enjoying the moment for once
    How 'bout how good it feels to finally forgive you
    How 'bout grieving it all one at a time
    Thank you India
    Thank you terror
    Thank you disillusionment
    Thank you frailty
    Thank you consequence
    Thank you thank you silence
    The moment I let go of it was the moment
    I got more than I could handle
    The moment I jumped off of it
    Was the…

    The Carpenters: We’ve only just begun:1970:Lyrics and Video

    We've only just begun to live
    White lace and promises
    A kiss for luck and we're on our way
    We've only begun

    Before the rising sun we fly
    So many roads to choose
    We start out walking and learn to run
    And yes, we've just begun

    Sharing horizons that are new to us
    Watching the signs along the way
    Talking it over just the two of us
    Working together day to day
    Together

    And when the evening comes we smile
    So much of life ahead
    We'll find a place where there's room to grow
    And yes, We've just begun

    Terra Naomi - Up There

    I met her a couple of years back when she played a small private gig in Cape Town - Man......she is amazing...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3CUkylQ7150


    Terra Naomi - Up There

    Roll into your town and Iím walking around
    Got some extra time think Iíll throw some money down
    And you follow me around
    And youíre asking for the time
    Your asking what I found
    Think Iím gonna rob you blind

    Maybe itís the tattoo on my arm
    That I drew while I was bored waiting tables in new york
    A heart and two flowers intertwined with a vine
    I can see your point, I can see your point

    And up here I am who I am
    And if you donít like it then fuck you, man
    Iím not a thief and a whore
    Please donít follow me around next time Iím shopping in your store

    And up here Iím making you aware
    That if you donít like me well I donít care
    Iíll be exactly who I am and if you got a problem with it
    Well thatís your problem, man

    After Iíve paid count the money that you made
    Then you go to the show like to be entertained
    And I get up on the stage
    Trained monkey in a cage
    And itís just another day just another day

    And I can see you from my place on the stage
    Third row center aisle
    Hot blond with you
    All smiles
    And you got another woman but thatís in another town
    And you canít wait til this is over
    Gonna lay that honey down

    And up here I am who I am
    And if you donít like it then fuck you, man
    Iím not a thief and a whore
    Please donít follow me around next time Iím shopping in your store

    And up here Iím making you aware
    That if you donít like me well I donít care
    Iíll be exactly who I am and if you got a problem with it
    Well thatís your problem, man

    And your good values taught you how to behave
    Who to treat kindly and who to enslave
    And like all good men you still fall to the floor
    When a great big rack
    And a ripe round ass
    Walk through that doorÖ

    And up here I am who I am
    And if you donít like it then fuck you, man
    Iím not a thief and a whore
    Please donít follow me around next time Iím shopping in your store

    And up here Iím making you aware
    That if you donít like me well I donít care
    Iíll be exactly who I am and if you got a problem with it
    Well thatís your problem, man
    ďWhy, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.Ē
    ― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

    Build Me Up Buttercup: The Foundations: 1968: Lyrics and video

    Suffice to say it; I have a thing for “bubble-gum pop.” The noun “pop,” requires two adjectives to qualify it! “Bubble-gum.” Why? That’s a good question; I don’t have an intelligent answer!”



    Why do you build me up (build me up) buttercup, baby
    Just to let me down (let me down) and mess me around?
    And then worst of all (worst of all) you never call, baby
    When you say you will (say you will) but I love you still
    I need you (I need you) more than anyone, darlin'
    You know that I have from the start
    So build me up (build me up) buttercup, don't break my heart
    "I'll be over at ten, " you told me time and again
    But you're late, I wait around and then (bah dah dah)
    I went to the door, I can't take any more
    It's not you, you let me down again
    baby, baby, try to find
    (Hey, hey, hey) a little time and I'll make you mine
    (Hey, hey, hey) I'll be home
    I'll be beside the phone waiting for you
    Ooh ooh ooh, ooh ooh ooh
    Why do you build me up (build me up)

    Buddy Holly and Norman Petty: It’s so easy: 1958: Lyrics and video



    It's so easy to fall in love
    It's so easy to fall in love
    People tell me love's for fools
    Here I go breaking all the rules
    Seems so easy
    Yeah, so doggone easy
    Oh it seems so easy
    Yeah where you're concerned
    My heart can learn
    It's so easy to fall in love
    It's so easy to fall in love
    Look into your heart and see
    What your lovebook has set aside for me
    It seems so easy
    Yeah, so doggone easy
    Oh it seems so easy
    Yeah where you're concerned
    My heart can learn
    Oh it's so easy to fall in love
    It's so easy to fall in love
    It seems so easy
    Oh so doggone easy
    Yeah it

    Bubble Gum music was popular in the late 60's and early 70's, before disco came to spoil music forever.
    It was played at parties and had a positive "let's dance" feel, although most of it was factory produced and not serious music.
    The term Bubblegum" related to "listen to it once or twice and then discard it". (chew it and spit it out). Very much like modern hip-hop that has no musical value and all sounds the same. One of the most successful numbers was Sugar Sugar by the Archies, a fictional band (like the Monkees) who was created in a studio for TV audiences.



    Wikipedia

    Bubblegum pop (also known as bubblegum music or simply bubblegum) is a genre of music with an upbeat sound contrived and marketed to appeal to pre-teens and teenagers, which may be produced in an assembly-line process, driven by producers and often using unknown singers. Bubblegum's classic period ran from 1967 to 1972.[1] A second wave of bubblegum began two years later and ran until 1977 when disco took over.

    The genre was predominantly a singles phenomenon rather than an album-oriented one. Acts were typically manufactured in the studio using session musicians, and most bubblegum pop groups were one-hit wonders.[2] Among the best-known acts of bubblegum's golden era are 1910 Fruitgum Company (a clear exception to the one-hit wonder rule), the Lemon Pipers ("Green Tambourine", credited as being the first bubblegum pop chart-topper[1]), the Ohio Express ("Yummy Yummy Yummy"), and the Archies, an animated group which had the most successful bubblegum song with "Sugar, Sugar", Billboard Magazine's No. 1 single for 1969. Singer Tommy Roe also scored several hits during the era, including the 1969 number one hit "Dizzy".

    Excellence is not a skill; its an attitude...

    Some of the Bubble Gum numbers became favourite Rock numbers.
    This used to be one of our favourite covers and always rocked the house!

    You must understand though the touch of your hand
    Makes my pulse react
    That it's only the thrill of boy meeting girl
    Opposites attract
    It's physical
    Only logical
    You must try to ignore that it means more than that ooo
    What's love got to do, got to do with it
    What's love but a second hand emotion
    What's love got to do, got to do with it
    Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken
    It may seem to you that I'm acting confused
    When you're close to me
    If I tend to look dazed I've read it someplace
    I've got cause to be
    There's a name for it
    There's a phrase that fits
    But whatever the reason you do it for me ooo
    What's love got to do, got to do with it
    What's love but a second hand emotion
    What's love got to do, got to do with it
    Who needs a heart when a heart can be…

    Three Days Grace

    I'm on the outside looking through
    I know I'm not the same as you
    I'd rather be faceless than ignored
    Than be in the in-crowd desperate for
    A way to fit in just a little more

    I am an outsider
    I don't care about the in-crowd, no
    Better off on my own now
    I am an outsider
    I don't care about the in-crowd, no
    I'm better off on my own now

    I don't wanna be any part of your scene
    I don't believe what you believe
    I'd rather be faceless in the dark
    Than be so fake like the way you are
    Yeah that's why I stay so far away from you

    I am an outsider
    I don't care about the in-crowd, no
    Better off on my own now
    I am an outsider
    I don't care about the in-crowd, no
    I'm better off on my own now

    There comes a time we draw the line
    Decide we're better off on the outside
    There comes a time we draw the line
    Decide we're better off on the outside

    I am an outsider
    I don't care about the in-crowd, no
    Better off on my own now
    I am an outsider
    I don't care about the in-crowd, no
    I'm better off on my own now
