Today's the fourth of July Another June has gone by And when they light up our town I just think What a waste of gunpowder and sky
I'm certain I am alone In harboring thoughts of our home It's one of my faults that I can't quell my past I ought to have gotten it gone I ought to have gotten it
Oh, baby, I wonder if when you are older Someday You'll wake up And say, 'My God, I should have told her What would it take But, now here I am and the world's gotten colder And she's got the river down which I sold her'
So that's today's memory lane With all the pathos and pain Another chapter in a book where the chapters are endless And they're always the same A verse, and a verse, and refrain
Oh, baby, I wonder if when you are older Someday You'll wake up And say, 'My God, I should have told her What would it take But, now here I am and the world's gotten colder And she's got the river down which I sold her And she's got the river down which I sold her

Stephens Stills played timbales on the Bee Gees hit, "You Should Be Dancing." He was in the next door studio laying down a Crosby, Stills and Nash album and could hear Saturday Night Fever being recorded. Stills recognized its potential to be a monster hit and he wanted to contribute.
"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
YouTube were forced into an upgrade after PSY's "Gangnam Style" broke the video-sharing website's hit counter. Once the tune reached 2,147,483,647 views, the maximum positive value for a 32-bit signed binary integer in computing, the view-counter could no longer work.
