Song of the Day

Title: Above the Clouds
Artist: Gang Starr feat. Inspectah Deck
Album: Moment of Truth



[John F. Kennedy]
"The moon and the planets are there.
And new hopes for knowledge and peace are there.
And therefore as we set sail; we ask God's blessing -
on the most hazardous, and dangerous, and greatest adventure
of which man has ever embarked."

"Prepared for liftoff."

[Guru]
I Self Lord and Master, shall bring disaster to evil factors
Demonic chapters, shall be captured by Kings
Through the storms of days after
Unto the Earth from the Sun through triple darkness to blast ya
With a force that can't be compared
To any firepower, for it's mind power shared
The brain wake, causes vessels to circulate
Like constellations reflect at night off the lake
Word to the father, and Mother Earth
Seeking everlasting life through this Hell for what it's worth
Look listen and observe
And watch another C-Cypher pullin' my peeps to the curb
Heed the words; it's like ghetto style proverbs
The righteous pay a sacrifice to get what they deserve
Cannot afford to be confined to a cell
Brainwaves swell, turnin' a desert to a well
Experience the best teacher; thoughts will spray
Like street sweepers little daddy street preacher
Illustrious feature, narrator you select
Accompanied by Deck plus the DJ you respect
The seven and a half combine, over the frontline
The ten percenters, promotin' slander in the airtime
Bear in mind jewels be the tools of the trade
Sharp veins heavenly praise and dues are paid

[Chorus: Guru]
Above the crowds, above the clouds where the sounds are original
Infinite skills create miracles
Warrior spiritual - above the clouds
Raining down, holdin' it down

[Inspectah Deck]
Yeah, I leave scientists mentally scarred, triple extra large
Wild like rock stars who smash guitars
Poison bars from the Gods bust holes in your mirage
And catch a charge shake em down like the riot squad
Invade your zone, ruin like ancient Rome
I span the universe and return to Earth to claim my throne
The maker, owner, plus soul controller
Ayatollah rest in the sky, the cloud's my sofa
Stand like Colossus, regardless to whom or what
Numerous attempts at my life, so who to trust?
Who but us, to supply you with the fire
The burning truth, 150 Absolut proof
On the mic like Moses spoke in golden scribe
Survivor of the oldest tribe whose soldiers died
I notified families, we shed tears and mourn
But our hands are the ammo cause the battle's still on
Sound the horn; we come rumblin' through the function
Precise laser beam technique to touch somethin'
When we die hard, to build the monument to honor us with
Humungous effect in the world - we could have conquered it

[Chorus x2]

All my friends are brown and red, spoonman
All my friends are skeletons
They beat the rhythm with their bones, spoonman

[Chorus 2x]

Feel the rhythm with your hands
Steal the rhythm while you can, spoonman

Thank you, good night people

Song of the Day

Title: Little Talks
Artist: Of Monsters and Men
Album: My Head Is an Animal

 

Hey! Hey! Hey!
I don't like walking around this old and empty house
So hold my hand, I'll walk with you my dear
The stairs creak as I sleep, it's keeping me awake
It's the house telling you to close your eyes

Some days I can't even trust myself
It's killing me to see you this way

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Hey! Hey! Hey!
There's an old voice in my head that's holding me back
Well tell her that I miss our little talks
Soon it will be over and buried with our past
We used to play outside when we were young,
And full of life and full of love

Some days I don't know if I am wrong or right
Your mind is playing tricks on you, my dear

'Cause though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Hey!
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

You're gone gone gone away
I watched you disappear
All that's left is a ghost of you
Now we're torn torn torn apart, there's nothing we can do
Just let me go we'll meet again soon
Now wait wait wait for me
Please hang around
I'll see you when I fall asleep

Hey!
Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Don't listen to a word I say
Hey!
The screams all sound the same
Hey!

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Though the truth may vary
This ship will carry
Our bodies safe to shore

Song of the Day

Title: I Don't Dance
Artist: DMX feat. Machine Gun Kelly
Album: Undisputed



[DMX]
Y'all lookin' for names, I'm lookin' for beats
Y'all lookin' for fame, I live in the streets
Y'all talk the talk, but I walk the walk
School street, home of the brave,New York
Y'all make movies, but I make moves
Straight up, y'all got somethin' to prove
Y'all niggas duck, but I swing back
Y'all niggas run, but I bring gats
Y'all niggas whisper, "X is a crackhead"
Aight fuck it, I'mma just crack heads
I bang niggas that cross the line
Y'all niggas talk shit from way behind
I stand my ground, but y'all niggas don't
Shit I go to jail, but y'all niggas won't
Y'all niggas walk around and get scared
But I don't give a fuck, I don't care

[Chorus: DMX] [2x]
I ain't a dancing nigga, I just move to the beat
Sit there and nod my head but won't move my feet
Gangsta, so I'm holdin' up the walk
That dancing shit up to the rest of y'all

[Machine Gun Kelly]
Kells get it crackin', y'all play chess
Kells gets to scrappin' and y'all just flex
Why is y'all rappin, when I got next
You roll with them and I'll rock with X
Eastside motherfucka, Cleveland Brown
Burning leaves in the gutta, make it Cleveland loud
All I know is when the beefs on, the beast comes out
EST is in the buildin, we run this town
Ruff Ryders, you got a problem come find us
Hop up like the sand now right behind ya
Like where the cheese at fuck lasagna
Pair of shoes size bags, who's stuffed inside 'em
Grimey, bare hand, no tool beside me
I don't talk online, hater come here find me
Me against the world, underdogs new Rocky
Givin a fuck if anyone co-sign me likes that uh

[Chorus 2x]

[DMX]
Y'all niggas is pussy, straight up ass
I keep that thing, and I'll blast
Letcha man know, he don't wanna push me
Remember, it's you not me that's pussy
Y'all niggas walk light on your toes
I come through hard, kickin' down doors
I spit a mean 16 without a pause
Then let 16 go just because
You in it for the dough, I'm in it for life
You in jail beatin' your dick
I'm fuckin' your wife
I bring the drama, I bring the noise
Kidnap yo mama, bring her to the boys
I make shit happen with one word
You take shit laughin' nigga, you's a bird
I take niggas for everything they got
That's why I'm the dog and you not

[Chorus 3x]

Song of the Day

Title: The Bridge
Artist: MC Shan
Album: Down by Law

You love to hear the story again and again

Of how it all got started way back when
The monument is right in your face
Sit and listen for a while to the name of the place

The Bridge (scratched) (3X)


Hip hop was set out in the dark

They used to do it out in the park
Every place they said his name it rang an alarm
Otherwise known as Mean Teen Tom
A brother whose known for his rap
Jabby Jack, Larry Laughter and least not last
A cool brother by the name of Gas
These brothers made you get loose
They was down with a brother called Cousin Bruce
They used to jam in the center
You had to pay so you could enter
Go to the door
Get frisked
Just in order to get in
And if you wasn't from this town
Then you couldn't fight and win
But every time they had a jam
They couldn't get no peace
So that's why the jam's out there
And the parks they had to cease cause you was in

The Bridge (scratched) (4X)

(Queensbridge)


Dimples be the girl, she was great

Her and Marley Marl went and cut a plate
They used to rock it out in the place
And the title of it was sucker DJs
And then he strolled along one day
And then he walked into a girl named Shante
Third in line you know it's me
MC Shan ha ha in the place to be
MC Man he made them beg
He is the man who is known as Craig
The newest member out to get loose
Now he is down with us and he got the juice
This is the place where stars are born
And we are the only ones that can't be worn
Out
By any place any part of the world
And while I'm out on tour keep your hand off my girl
When she's in

The Bridge (scratched) (8X)

(Queensbridge)

Dead dreams, bought and sold

You gotta try and receive your goal
However you do it however you're made
Don't ever listen to what nobody say
Cause I will tell you the deal
You gotta go by what your heart feel
Cause if you don't you'll be misled
By stupid little things put inside your head
Or someone else that you will see
They're trying to live your destiny
By the time you think about it your grown
And then you gotta say god damn I gotta leave my home
Grab hold of your heavy chain
Rich people always pullin' always trying to restrain
You heard just what I said
They're always pullin' ya back when you wanna get ahead
They pull you back cause they're not wit it
You're talking about school
They're talking about quit it
Soon you'll see that time just fly
Cause you spent most of it out gettin' high
Thought about it much, much later
Could've went to school and been much greater
But you chose to lead that fate
Now you're sucking on a bone when it should've been steak
The whole purpose of the story I told
Was mainly to inspire you to reach your goals
Stop walking through life as if you are blind
You should reach for your goal cause I'm reaching for mine
And I'm from

I recently came up with a new health mantra and I'm hoping it will catch on: "An orgasm a day keeps the doctor away." This regimen is especially effective if you eat an apple immediately before the orgasm.

Title: Creep
Artist: Radiohead
Album: Pablo Honey


When you were here before
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel
Your skin makes me cry
You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You're so fucking special

[Chorus]
But I'm a creep

I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doing here?
I don't belong here

I don't care if it hurts

I want to have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul
I want you to notice when I'm not around
You're so fucking special
I wish I was special

[Chorus]

 

She's running out the door
She's running out
She runs runs runs runs
Runs

Whatever makes you happy

Whatever you want
You're so very special
I wish I was special

[Chorus]

Song of the Day

Title: Giving Up the Gun
Artist: Vampire Weekend
Album: Contra



[Chorus]
Your sword's grown old and rusty

Burnt beneath the rising sun
It's locked up like a trophy
Forgetting all the things it's done
All though it's been a long time
You’re right back where you started from
I see it in your eyes
Now you’re giving up the gun
When I was 17
I had wrists like steel
And I felt complete
And now my body fades
Behind a brass charade
And I’m obsolete
But if the change remains
To see those better days
I’d cut the cannons down
My ears are blown to bits
From all the rifle hits
Still I crave that sound
[Chorus]
I heard you play guitar
Down at a seedy bar
Where skinheads used to fight
Your Tokugawa smile
And your garbage style
Used to save the night
You felt the coming wave
Told me we'd all be brave
You said you wouldn’t flinch
But in the years that passed
Since I saw you last
You haven’t moved an inch
[Chorus]

Title: After Midnight
Artist: Blink-182
Album: Neighborhoods



I can't get my feet up off the edge
I kind of like the little rush you get
When you're standing close to death
Like when you're driving me crazy

Hold on as we crash into the earth
A bit of pain will help you suffer when you're hurt, for real
'Cause you are driving me crazy

Bite your lips, the word's a robbery
Do you grin inside? You're killing me
All along we talked of forever
I kind of think that we won't get better
It's the longest start, but the end's not too far away
Did you know? I'm here to stay

We'll stagger home after midnight
Sleep arm-in-arm in the stairwell
We'll fall apart on the weekend
These nights go on and on and on

I can't keep your voice out of my head
All I hear are many echoes of
The darkest words you said
And it's driving me crazy

I can't find the best in all of this
But I'm always looking out for you
'Cause you're the one I miss
And it's driving me crazy

Bite your lips, the word's a robbery
Do you grin inside? You're killing me
All along we talked of forever
I kind of think that we won't get better
It's the longest start, but the end's not too far away
Did you know? I'm here to stay

We'll stagger home after midnight
Sleep arm-in-arm in the stairwell
We'll fall apart on the weekend
These nights go on and on and on

We'll walk around
Pretending we're all grown up
Hey, rich girls
Well, can you tell me why
You're so stuck up?
When you act like you're so down

I'll tell you everything I know
Any little thing I know [2x]

You've got a lovely way with words,
Must be the way you see the world,
It's just the way I see the world

You got to know
You got to know

We'll walk around
Pretending we're all grown up
Hey, rich girls
Well can you tell me why
You're so stuck up?
And act like you're so down

I'll tell you everything I know
Any little thing I know [2x]

You've got a lovely way with words
Must be the way you see the world
It's just the way I see the world
You got to know

You got to know

I went down to your house last weekend
You said, "Come on man,
You don't have to point out everything that's bad
So there's a broken mirror on my bed
I'll clean it up, so what?
You don't have to be such an asshole all the time."
Oh, don't be like that




Oooh, oooh, oooh [3x]
