The Empty Hearts - “90 Miles An Hour Down A Dead End Street” (The Empty Hearts, 2014)

Ty Tabor - “Don’t Bring Me Down” (Balance, 2008)

Don’t stand in line just to hurt me

TSAR - “Kathy Fong Is The Bomb” (TSAR, 2000)

Driver Eight - “Brown Paper Bag” (Watermelon, 1996)

Had enough of you

King’s X - Gretchen Goes to Nebraska, 1989

Oh, what the heck, here’s the whole album.

King’s X - “Everybody Knows A Little Bit Of Something” (Gretchen Goes to Nebraska, 1989)

The Jelly Jam - “Nature’s Girl” (The Jelly Jam, 2001)

Nickel Creek - “Somebody More Like You” (Why Should the Fire Die?, 2005)

I hope you finally find someone
Someone that you trust
And give him everything

I hope you meet someone your height
So you can see eye-to-eye
With someone as small as you

Rick Springfield - “What’s Victoria’s Secret?” (Venus in Overdrive, 2008)

She always gets the best of me
Or what little I have left

Say what you will, the man can write a great pop song.

King’s X - “Vegetable” (Manic Moonlight, 2001)

As most King’s X fans would probably agree, Manic Moonlight is far from my favorite release. It saw the trio branch out into sonic experimentation with samples, loops, drum machines, and the like, which threw most of us a curve to say the least. But man if Ty Tabor doesn’t just totally rip it up on guitar on this track!

And the groove, man, the groove…

At the Drive-In - “Cosmonaut” (Relationship of Command, 2000)

Ginger Wildheart - “Time” (555%, 2012)

Time goes by so fast when you’re getting older…

Saint Vitus - “Look Behind You” (Born Too Late, 1986)

Rush - “The Pass” (Presto, 1989)

One of my all-time favorite Rush tunes that also shows the lyrical genius of Neil Peart:

Proud swagger out of the schoolyard
Waiting for the world’s applause
Rebel without a conscience
Martyr without a cause

Static on your frequency
Electrical storm in your veins
Raging at unreachable glory
Straining at invisible chains

And now you’re trembling on a rocky ledge
Staring down into a heartless sea
Can’t face life on a razor’s edge
Nothing’s what you thought it would be

All of us get lost in the darkness
Dreamers learn to steer by the stars
All of us do time in the gutter
Dreamers turn to look at the cars
Turn around and turn around and turn around
Turn around and walk the razor’s edge
Don’t turn your back
And slam the door on me

It’s not as if this barricade
Blocks the only road
It’s not as if you’re all alone
In wanting to explode

Someone set a bad example
Made surrender seem alright
The act of a noble warrior
Who lost the will to fight

And now you’re trembling on a rocky ledge
Staring down into a heartless sea
Done with life on a razor’s edge
Nothing’s what you thought it would be

No hero in your tragedy
No daring in your escape
No salutes for your surrender
Nothing noble in your fate
Christ, what have you done?

Bob Mould - “The War” (Beauty & Ruin, 2014)
