"Rotterdam (or anywhere)"

The Beautiful South

Released in 1996 in their album "Blue Is The Colour" (platinum disc in the UK). It was a Top Ten single.

...a melodic, bouncy pop song with a sting in the words. 'Rotterdam (Or Anywhere)' is about how loneliness can follow you anywhere.

"´Til I gain control again"

Rodney Crowell

Written by Rodney Crowell. Released in 1981. From his album "Rodney Crowell" (1981)

Originally released by Emmylou Harris in 1975.

It was a hit for Crystal Gayle´s cover in 1982.

Rodney Crowell says on his web page:

...I played “Til I Can Gain Control Again†for the first time during an all night drinking and song swapping session. It was a great way to learn the craft of songwriting.

â€â€™Til I Can Gain Control Againâ€... came to Emmylou Harris’s attention as she was preparing for her first album in late 1974. She recorded it.

A thumb goes up, a car goes by

One love

We get to share it

Leaves you baby if you

Don't care for it

-" One " ~ U2

In the garden I was playing the tart

I kissed your lips and broke your heart

You...you were acting like it was

The end of the world

" The End Of The World " ~U2

Lesson number one that you learn while you're young,

Life just goes on and on getting harder and harder

" Indian Girl " - The Rolling Stones

If you didn't care what happened to me,

And I didn't care for you

We would zig zag our way through the boredom and pain

Occasionally glancing up through the rain

Wondering which of the buggers to blame

And watching for pigs on the wing.

" Pigs On The Wing ( Pt.1 ) " - Pink Floyd

"Everybody knows that the boat is leaking

Everybody knows that the captain lied

Everybody got this broken feeling

Like their father or their dog just died"

"Everybody knows" - Leonard Cohen

"Everybody knows that you love me baby

Everybody knows that you really do

Everybody knows that you've been faithful

Ah give or take a night or two

Everybody knows you've been discreet

But there were so many people you just had to meet

Without your clothes."

Same song. :)
