The Contenders: Page 19

361 Clone Town - TV Smith
362 Colors - Halsey

"you were red and you liked me because I was blue. You touched me and suddenly I was a lilac sky, and then you decided purple just wasn't for you"

THAT SAYS IT ALL

363 Behind Blue Eyes - The Who
364 Muscle Museum - Muse
365 Do You Remember? - More Than Life

"Do you remember falling in and out of love together?
Do you remember the good times as well as I do?
It feels like it should have lasted forever.
What good is your heart if it doesn't break?

Do you remember me?
Young, naive and turning nineteen."

366 If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot
367 The Boxer - Paul Simon

Seeing This song so low disappointed me

368 She Mends Me - Marc Anthony
369 Expensive Being Poor - TV Smith

And the car is off the road but I never had a car. And I pay more for my food 'cause the supermarket's too far.

It's expensive being poor because everything costs more, knocking on a closing door, it's expensive being poor, someone throw me down some crumbs I will eat them off the floor, it's expensive being poor but I look good when I get desperate.

And the box is on the fritz, it's a black and white, or was, I tried taking it to bits now the picture's just a grey fuzz.

It's expensive being poor because everything costs more someone pick me off the floor, it's expensive being poor, how can I live with what I did when the cinema's six quid? It's expensive being poor but I look good when I get desperate.

Let the good times roll Into a bottomless hole with job, friends and future my ideal home furniture, let the trumpets sound as my house falls down.

And the dust begins to clear and I'm lying on the ground, and I'm standing on a path in an unknown part ...more

370 Dreams - Fleetwood Mac
371 Snow (Hey Oh) - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Great song. Great lyrics

372 You're So Vain - Carly Simon
373 White Winter Hymnal - Fleet Foxes

It can be interpreted in any way, it both elevates the song and can be appreciated without the music. Haunting, cryptic, strange, dark, beautiful.

Fleet foxes have an extremely beautiful way of saying things... A poem for the soul.

374 Crucify Me - Bring Me the Horizon

I am an ocean, I am the sea
There is a world inside of me
Lost in the abyss, drowned in the deep
No set of lungs could salvage me
Save yourself, save your breath
The tide's too strong, you'll catch your death
So breathe for me, just breathe

Bring me the horizon never lets me down. They's so lyrically talented!

375 Vision One - Royksopp
376 Stupid Hoe - Nicki Minaj
377 In Loving Memory - Alter Bridge
378 Come Clean - Hilary Duff V 1 Comment
379 Heaven and Hell - Black Sabbath V 1 Comment
380 War Pigs - Black Sabbath

This is a song with deep rooted political notes and it is absolutely genius. Ozzy is the man, and Geezer, Tony and Bill are right there with him.
