I think your time is better spent botching the old school hip hop thread

I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

I guess you're old enough to know
Kids out on the west coast are taking off their clothes
Screwing in the surf and going out to shows
They get high and ride around in GTOs

Certain songs they get so scratched into our souls

And we didn't go to Dallas
'Cause Jackie Onassis said that it ain't safe for Catholics yet
Think about what they pulled on Kennedy and then think about his security
Then think about what they might try to pull on you and me

"Hornets! Hornets!"

She said always remember never to trust me
She said that the first night that she met me
She said there's gonna come a time when I'm gonna have to go
With whoever's gonna get me the highest

She said I won't be much for conversation
If we go and do the rest of this
And I've never been much for conservation
I kinda dig these awkward silences

She's got those Bones Brigade videos
She knew them back and forth, she slept with so many skaters
She had the place to herself, she had a couple hundred bucks
And he had nothing but the number

I like the guy who always answers the door
He always knows what you came to his house for

She said I won't be much for all this humbert humbert stuff
I've never really done that much of this
And I have to really try so hard not to fall in love
I have to concentrate when we kiss

She mouthed the words along to "Running Up That Hill"
That song got scratched into her soul
And he never heard that song before but he still got the metaphor
He knows some people that switched places before

I like the crowds at the really big shows
People touching people that they don't even know, yo

I guess the heavy stuff ain't quite at its heaviest
By the time it gets out to suburban Minneapolis
We were living up at Nicollet and 66th
With three skaters and some hoodrat chick

Drove the wrong way down 169
Almost died up by Edina High

She said my name's Rick Danko, baby
People call me One-Hour Photo
I got some hazardous chemicals
So drive around to the window

She said my name's Robbie Robertson but people call me Robo
I blew red white and blue right into a tissue
I came right over the counter just to kiss you

Introduced them to one of my friends with good taste tonight before the O's game. Only had time for one song, I picked Southtown Girls... he loved it. Know that's not considered one of their best songs but I think it nicely encapsulates their style and range.

Southtown Girls is an awesome song!


Meet me right in front of the Rainbow Foods, I got a brown paper bag and black buckle shoes
And if anything seems weird then just cruise
Meet me right in front of the Party City, that two-sided tape it gets way too sticky
I got a bad case of noisemaker blues

Southtown girls won't blow you away
But you know that they'll stay

Raise a toast to St. Joe Strummer

I think he might have been our only decent teacher

Getting older makes it harder to remember

We are our only saviors

We're gonna build something this summer

Didn't wanna go out but it felt really right

When someone put on 'Heaven Tonight'

Had a moment in the middle of In Color and in Black and White

Sing along with the Southern Girls

Rip me out of my little world

There are nights when I think that Sal Paradise was right
Boys and girls in America, they have such a sad time together
Sucking off each other at the demonstrations, making sure their makeup's straight
Crushing one another with colossal expectations, dependent, undisciplined, sleeping late

She was a really cool kisser and she wasn't all that strict of a Christian
She was a damn good dancer but she wasn't all that great of a girlfriend
He likes the warm feeling but he's tired of all the dehydration
Most nights are crystal clear but tonight it's like he's stuck between stations

On the radio

The Devil and John Berryman, they took a walk together
And they ended up on Washington talking to the river
He said, "I've surrounded myself with doctors and deep thinkers
Their big heads and soft bodies make for lousy lovers"

There was that night that we thought John Berryman could fly
But he didn't, so he died
She said "You're pretty good with words, but words won't save your life"
And they didn't, so he died

Yeah, he was drunk and exhausted, he was critically acclaimed and respected
He loved the Golden Gophers but he hated all the drawn-out winters
He likes the warm feeling but he's tired of all the dehydration
Most nights were kind of fuzzy but that last night he had total retention

Yeah, these Twin City kisses
They sound like clicks and hisses
We all come down and drowned
In the Mississippi River

We drink and we dry up and now we crumble into dust
We get wet and we corrode and now we're covered up in rust
We drink and we dry up and now we crumble into dust
We get wet and we corrode and now we're covered up in rust

She was a really cool kisser and she wasn't all that strict of a Christian
She was a damn good dancer but she wasn't all that great of a girlfriend
He likes the warm feeling but he's tired of all the dehydration
Most nights are crystal clear but tonight it's like he's stuck between stations

These Twin City kisses
They sound like clicks and hisses
We all come down and drowned

Must be Barnstar! Saw them in concert (opening for Josh Ritter) and he told a story about how he got really drunk in Minnesota with THS and everybody got sick.

Yep, Barnstar! is great.  Did you see them in York a few months ago -  I wanted to go, but I was busy that night.

When Judas went up and kissed Him
Man I almost got sick
I guess I knew it was coming
