I Hate Myself For Loving You by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts



Midnight, gettin' uptight, where are you?
You said you'd meet me, now it's quarter to two
I know I'm hangin' but I'm still wantin' you
Hey Jack, it's a fact they're talkin' in town
I turn my back and you're messin' around
I'm not really jealous, don't like lookin' like a clown
I think of you ev'ry night and day
You took my heart then you took my pride away

I hate myself for loving you
Can't break free from the things that you do
I wanna walk but I run back to you
That's why I hate myself for loving you
Ow! Uh

Daylight, spent the night without you
But I've been dreamin' 'bout the lovin' you do
I'm over being angry 'bout the hell you put me through
Hey, man, bet you can treat me right
You just don't know what you was missin' last night
I wanna see you begging, say forget it just for spite
I think of you ev'ry night and day
You took my heart and you took my pride away

I hate myself for loving you
Can't break free from the the things that you do
I wanna walk but I run back to you
That's why I hate myself for loving you
Ow! Huh

I think of you ev'ry night and day
You took my heart and you took my pride away

I hate myself for loving you
Can't break free from the things that you do
I wanna walk but I run back to you
That's why I hate myself for loving you

I hate myself for loving you
Can't break free from the the things that you do
I wanna walk but I run back to you
That's why I hate myself for loving you

I hate myself for loving you
I hate myself for loving you
I hate myself for loving you
I hate myself
I hate myself for loving you

Young and in Love by Ingrid Michaelson



We're young and in love
And we're running like the wind, we got it all
We're never alone
If we got each other we can save the world

Explosions in the sky
I see colors fly
It's like the Fourth of July in your eyes

Old enough, old enough, old enough to know
That we are young in love, young in love
Young and in love
You and me, we can see time will stand still
If we stay young in love, young in love
Young and in love

Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love, oh

Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love, oh

We're turning it up
Play the music loud so we can sing along
And teach me all the words to all your favorite songs
We can make this moment last all summer long

Explosions in the sky
I see colors fly
It's like the Fourth of July in your eyes

Old enough, old enough, old enough to know
That we are young in love, young in love
Young and in love
You and me, we can see time will stand still
If we stay young in love, young in love
Young and in love

Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love, oh

Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love, oh

And you break my walls down
Cause you make me fall apart in a good way
In a good way

Old enough, old enough, old enough to know
That we are young in love, young in love
Young and in love
You and me, we can see time will stand still
If we stay young in love, young in love
Young and in love

Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love, oh
(Yeah we are young and in love)

Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love, oh
(Yeah we are young and in love)

Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love, oh

Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love
Yeah we are young and in love, oh

Better Sorry Than Safe by Halestorm


I can't even think of one good reason
Why I'm always thinking about leaving
It's not like everything's so horrible

We've been together for a few years now
And you know all my ins and outs
But everything's way too comfortable
From the moment I wake I plan my escape

I'm not scared
'Cause I know there's something out there waiting for me
And I swear that I'll find it someday, just wait and see

I don't care that you call me crazy
I can't stay 'cause I need room to breathe
There's nothing left to say, better sorry than safe

Sometimes I wish you cheated on me
Then leavin' here would be so easy
It's time to take a chance and give you up
In the morning I'll wake and make my escape

I'm not scared
'Cause I know there's something out there waiting for me
And I swear that I'll find it someday, just wait and see

I don't care that you call me crazy
I can't stay 'cause I need room to breathe
There's nothing left to say, better sorry than safe

I'm not scared
'Cause I know there's something out there waiting for me
And I swear that I'll find it someday, just wait and see

I don't care that you call me crazy
I can't stay 'cause I need room to breathe
There's nothing left to say, better sorry than safe
Oh yeah, there's nothing left to say

Champion by Fall Out Boy


Champion, champion

I'm calling you from the future
To let you know we made a mistake
And there's a fog from the past
That's giving me, giving me such a headache

And I'm back with a madness
I'm a champion of the people who don't believe in champions
I got nothing but dreams inside
I got nothing but dreams

I'm just young enough to still believe, still believe
But young enough not to know what to believe in
Young enough not to know what to believe in, yeah

If I can live through this
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
I can do anything
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
I can do anything

Champion, champion
Champion, champion

I got rage every day, on the inside
The only thing I do is sit around and kill time
I'm trying to blow out the pilot light, I'm trying to blow out the light

I'm just young enough to still believe, still believe
But young enough not to know what to believe in
Young enough not to know what to believe

If I can live through this
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
I can do anything
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
I can do anything

Champion, champion
I can do anything
Champion, champion
And I can do anything
Champion, champion
And I can do anything
Champion, champion
I can do anything

If I can live through this
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
I can do anything
(I can do anything I can)
If I can live through this
(Can do anything, anything, yeah)
If I can live through this
If I can live through this
If I can live through this,
If I can live through, live through this

If I can live through this (If I can live through this)
If I can live through this (If I can live through)
If I can live through this (If I can live through this)
I can do anything
(I can do anything)
If I can live through this
(I can do anything)
If I can live through this
(I can do anything)
If I can live through this
I can do anything

Champion, champion

Free Your Mind by En Vogue



Prejudice, wrote a song about it.
Like to hear it? Here it go.

I wear tight clothing, high heeled shoes
It doesn't mean that I'm a prostitute, no no
I like rap music, wear hip hop clothes
That doesn't mean that I'm out sellin' dope no no
Oh my forgive me for having straight hair, no
It doesn't mean there's another blood in my heir yeah yeah
I might date another race or color
It doesn't mean I don't like my strong black brothers.

Why oh why must it be this way
Before you can read me you gotta learn how to see me, I said
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be color blind, don't be so shallow.
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be color blind, don't be so shallow

So I'm a sistah
Buy things with cash
That really doesn't mean that all my credit's bad, oooh
So why dispute me and waste my time
Because you really think the price is high for me
I can't look without being watched, and oh
You rang my buy before I made up my mind, OW!
Oh now attitude, why even bother
I can't change your mind, you can't change my color

Why oh why must it be this way?
Before you can read me you gotta learn how to see me, I said
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be color blind, don't be so shallow…

Why oh why must it be this way?
Before you can read me you gotta learn how to see me, I said
Free your mind and the rest will follow
Be color blind, don't be so shallow... FREE YOUR MIND!

Save Tonight by Eagle-Eye Cherry



Go on and close the curtains
'Cause all we need is candlelight
You and me, and a bottle of wine
To hold you tonight (oh)

Well we know I'm going away
And how I wish - I wish it weren't so
So take this wine and drink with me
And let's delay our misery

Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone
Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone

There's a log on the fire
And it burns like me for you
Tomorrow comes with one desire
To take me away (ohh it's true)

It ain't easy to say good-bye
Darlin' please, don't start to cry
'Cause girl you know I've got to go (oh)
And Lord I wish it wasn't so

Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone
Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone

Tomorrow comes to take me away
I wish that I, that I could stay
But girl you know I've got to go (oh)
And Lord I wish it wasn't so

Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone
Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone
Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone
Save tonight and fight the break of dawn
Come tomorrow - tomorrow I'll be gone

Tomorrow I'll be gone
Tomorrow I'll be gone
Tomorrow I'll be gone
Tomorrow I'll be gone

Save tonight
Save tonight
Save tonight
Save tonight
Oh that's right
Save tonight
Save tonight
[fade out]

Random Artist #9 - Night Ranger


I have a list of all the artists on my playlists on a spreadsheet that have numbers next to them. I'll put the highest number in the Google Random Number Generator, click random 3 times and take that number that comes up and see the artist that is listed and do a post.

One of the reasons for these posts is when the artist comes up, I'm going to go and look at some of their other hits and see if I already know them or like them in order to add them to my playlists. Hopefully along with that, you all could make some suggestions in the comments from the artist that I might be missing out on.

Night Ranger

I've only listened to them 27 times since 2018. That will go up when I listen to more today to see if I recognize anymore.

I only have one song on my playlist at the start of this post. We'll see if it goes up.







Studio Albums:
  1. Dawn Patrol (1982)
  2. Midnight Madness (1983)
  3. 7 Wishes (1985)
  4. Big Life (1987)
  5. Man in Motion (1988)
  6. Feeding Off the Mojo (1995)
  7. Neverland (1997)
  8. Seven (1998)
  9. Hole in the Sun (2007)
  10. Somewhere in California (2011)
  11. High Road (2014)
  12. Don't Let Up (2017)
I always assumed they were 80's rock band, had not idea they released an album as early as a few years ago.

Song on my playlists:
  1. Sister Christian
As you can tell, I didn't add any more songs. When it comes to these bands that were around in my childhood/teen years, I tend to only add songs that I recognize and I didn't recognize anything else. I'll add a song I don't know if it stands out but nothing else really stood out to me.

Boom! Shake the Room by DJ Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince



Yo back up now and give a brother room
The fuse is lit and I'm about to go boom
Mercy mercy mercy me
My life is a cage but on stage I'm free
Hyped up syched up ready for wil'in'
Standing in a crowd of girls like an island

The rhyme is a football yall and I went and threw it
Out in the crowd and yo it was a good throw
How do I know? because the crowd went hoooo
In response to the way that I was kicking it
Smooth and individual

So I just try to ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-chill
But it gets worse-a but worse-a but-but-but worse still

And like Jordan yo I'm scoring
Yeah that's right yall and I am in the flow
So pump up the volume along with the tempo
Many have died tryin' to stop my show
I came here tonight to here the crowd go

[Chorus]

You Should Be Here by Cole Swindell



It's perfect outside. It's like God let me dial up the weather.
Got the whole crew here, I ain't seen some of them in forever.
It's one of those never-forget-it-better-stop-and-take-it-in kinda scenes.
Everything's just right, yeah, except for one thing.

You should be here, standing with your arm around me here.
Cutting up, cracking a cold beer, saying cheers, hey y'all it's sure been a good year.
It's one of those moments, that's got your name written all over it.
And you know that if I had just one wish it'd be that you didn't have to miss this
You should be here.

You'd be taking way too many pictures on your phone.
Showing them off to everybody that you know back home.
And even some you don't, yeah
They say now you're in a better place
And I would be too if I could see your face.

You should be here, standing with your arm around me here.
Cutting up, cracking a cold beer, saying cheers, hey, y'all it's sure been a good year.
It's one of those moments, that's got your name written all over it.
And you know that if I had just one wish it'd be that you didn't have to miss this.
Aw you should be here.

You'd be loving this, you'd be freaking out, you'd be smiling, yeah
I know you'd be all about what's going on right here right now.
God, I wish somehow you could be here.

Oh, you should be here.

Yeah, this is one of those moments that's got your name written all over it
And you know that if I had just one wish it'd be that you didn't have to miss this.
Aw you should be here.
You should be here.

Love Wins by Carrie Underwood



A stray bullet and a momma cries
Her baby won't be coming home tonight
Sirens screaming down the avenue
Just another story on the evening news, oh woah
Politics and prejudice
How the hell it'd ever come to this
When everybody's gotta pick a side
It don't matter if you're wrong or right, no, and so it goes
But I hold onto hope and I won't let go cause

I, I believe you and me are sisters and brothers
And I, I believe we're made to be here for each other
And we'll never fall if we walk hand in hand
Put a world that seems broken together again
Yeah I, I believe in the end love wins

Sometimes it takes a lot of faith
To keep believing there will come a day
When the tears and the sadness, the pain and the hate
The struggle, this madness, will all fade away, yeah

I, I believe you and me are sisters and brothers
And I, I believe we're made to be here for each other
And we'll never fall if we walk hand in hand
Put a world that seems broken together again
Yeah I, I believe in the end love wins

Love is power, love is a smile
Love reaches out, love is the remedy
Love is the answer, love's an open door
Love is the only thing worth fighting for, yeah

I, I believe you and me are sisters and brothers
And I, I believe we're made to be here for each other
And we'll never fall if we walk hand in hand
Put a world that seems broken together again
Yeah I, I believe in the end love wins
Oh yeah, love wins

Love will, love can, love still, love wins
Love will, love can, love still, love wins
