In an upstairs room in Blackpool By the side of a northern sea The army had my father And my mother was having me
Military Madness was killing my country Solitary Sadness comes over me After the school was over and I moved To the other side
I found a different country but I never Lost my pride Military Madness was killing the country Solitary sadness creeps over me
And after the wars are over And the body count is finally filed I hope that The Man discovers What's driving the people wild
Military madness is killing your country So much sadness, between you and me War, War, War, War, War, War

16-tear-old Lorde wrote the lyrics to "Royals" at home in just half an hour. She was inspired by the "ridiculous, unrelatable, unattainable opulence" that runs through such albums as Kanye West and Jay-Z's Watch the Throne and Lana Del Rey's Born To Die.
"Bittersweet Symphony" by The Verve samples an obscure orchestral arrangement of the 1965 Rolling Stones song "The Last Time." The Verve had to sign away most of the royalties before they could release the song.
