Micheladas in the afternoon Lie on the couch in a rented room Watchin' Jeopardy without the sound It's easy to stay down
Quick mistakes and long goodbyes Hold-over truths and necessary lies I caught a train that was backwards-bound It's easy to stay down
Stay down when your mind has been cleared And your trail can't be found Stay down with your eye to the sky And your ear to the ground
Down by the pool with all my brand-new friends Re-writin' letters that I never sent Declinin' invitations into town It's easy to stay down
Slowly admit that you have had your fun The girl you loved and every word you sung All the profane that you thought profound It's time now to stay down
Stay down when the smoke is cleared And you name can be found Stay down with your head in the clouds And your eyes to the ground
Feel the sting of the final blow What could've been, you don't care or know Don't try to go another round Stay down

Arizona DJ Guy Zapoleon played UB40's "Red Red Wine" four years after it was released as part of a feature on songs that should have been hits. Listeners started requesting the tune and within weeks it was topping the Hot 100.
It has long been speculated that the Soundgarden song "Black Hole Sun" came from the name of a sculpture in Seattle, but according to their frontman Chris Cornell the title came from a phrase he misheard on the news. The band's name did come from a sculpture.
