Right when the blizzard ends, they throw a fucking huge parade A great excuse for celebration of the mess they've made But then when the streets get flooded, we know what proximity's worth 'cause we're already here, in the same place when our phones don't work
So then we lie down in our field and just do nothing at all And i'm getting ready for when everything is wonderful For just a couple pairs of broken bones with broken feathers in blood In a meadow, uncut and understood
We can be an island apart from a ceaseless war on our heart Harbored in a fortress insurmountable Taller than affliction, safe wherever we are Erasing horror and disgust Rewinding the sorrow and the rust Before our suffering's suffering, hadn't we suffered enough?
On the morning that we're both 19 and newly on our own And all we know is "each other" and invisible homes We find two empty seats in the back of a car in an empty parking lot Where all our bridges are abandoned and the cops have forgot
And I can feel the difference when the day begins Like all I know is, "this year will be the year we win." We smoke the paper from the banner from our past parades And start again, before the memory of the mess we've made

Taylor Swift's “Shake It Off” was inspired by how she'd learned to deal with all the false rumors that circulated about her. "The only thing we can control is our reaction to that ,” said Swift. "You can either let it get to you … [or] you just shake it off."
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
