Part 1: #50-#25
I like song lyrics. Here are my favorite lyrics from Rolling Stone’s “50 Best Songs of 2015.”
#50 Titus Andronicus, “Dimed Out”
I’m an impatient underdog indivisible
And my challengers are talentless imbeciles
#49 Carly Rae Jepsen, “Run Away With Me”
Every single minute
I’ll be your hero and win it
When the lights go out
#48 Major Lazer feat. MØ & DJ Snake, “Lean On Me”
What will we do when we get old?
Will we walk down the same road?
#47 Cage the Elephant, “Trouble”
Will I come to pass or will I pass the test.
You know what they say, yeah, the wicked get no rest.
You can have my heart any place any time.
#46 Kacey Musgraves,”Biscuits”
Pourin’ salt in my sugar won’t make yours any sweeter
Pissin’ in my yard ain’t gonna make yours any greener
#45 Rihanna, “Bitch Better Have My Money”
Bitch, bitch, bitch better have my money!
Yo, that bitch better have my money!
#44 Lisbon, “Wolf Alice”
I’ve been ready for so long
And I would lick your wounds and care
#43 Mumford and Sons, “The Wolf”
And the tightrope that you wander every time
You have been weighed, you have been found wanting
#42 Sheer Mag, “Fan the Flames”
Getting hard to stay in tune
The boys are getting me down, I’ll be staying in my room
#41 Coldplay, “Adventure of a Lifetime”
Only I own me
And I feel my heart beating
#40 Unknown Mortal Orchestra, “Can’t Keep Checking My Phone”
Me for her for real it’s
Lust the love can’t be heard above
Everyone acts like a day drinker
#39 The Weeknd, “Earned It”
You’re my favorite kind of night
#38 A$AP Rocky feat. Rod Stewart, Miguel, “Everyday”
I look so fucking good most dykes’ll fuck me buddy
Yeah I’m a piece of shit
#37 Blur, “Ong Ong”
On an isle of rainclouds and verdant seas
I will be there with you
#36 Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney, “FourFiveSeconds”
See they want to buy my pride, but that just ain’t up for sale
See all of my kindness, is taken for weakness
#35 Car Seat Headrest, “Something Soon”
I want to break something important
I want to kick my dad in the shins
#34 JD McPherson, “Let the Good Times Roll”
Let the sky open up, let the good times roll I drift away underneath auspicious stars
#33 EL VY, “Return to the Moon (Political Song for Didi Bloome to Sing, With Crescendo)”
If you’ve got to go somewhere
Then you better go somewhere far
#32 Disclosure feat. Lorde, “Magnets”
Pretty girls don’t know the things that I know
Walk my way, I’ll share the things that she won’t
#31 Kurt Vile, “Pretty Pimpin'”
Then I proceeded to not comb some stranger’s hair
Never was my style
#30 Selena Gomez, “Good For You”
Trust me, I can take you there
Trust me, I can take you there
Trust me, I, trust me, I, trust me, I
#29 Drake, “Know Yourself”
This been where you find me at
That’s been where you find me at
#28 Eric Church, “Mr. Misunderstood”
But you love your daddy’s vinyl, old-time rock and roll
Elvis Costello, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and think Jeff Tweedy
Is one bad mother
#27 Miguel, “Coffee”
We talk street art and sarcasm
Crass humor and high fashion
#26 Florence and the Machine, “Ship to Wreck”
Did I drink too much?
Am I losing touch?
Did I build this ship to wreck?
#25 Dawes, “All Your Favorite Bands”
Ain’t it funny how some people pop into your head so easily
I haven’t seen you in there for so long
My favorite song of this bunch is “Coffee” by Miguel.
