You’re So Vain – Carly Simon


You’re So Vain by Carly Simon from No Secrets (1972)

Genre: Pop

You walked into the party
Like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot
You had one eye in the mirror
As you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they’d be your partner
They’d be your partner, and

You’re so vain
You probably think this song is about you

Earth Song by Michael Jackson from HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I (1995)

Genre: Blues

Lyrics:

What about sunrise
What about rain
What about all the things
That you said we were to gain…
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said was yours and mine…
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we’ve shed before
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying Earth the weeping shores?

Judge Not – Bob Marley


Judge Not by Bob Marley from Judge Not (1961)

Genre: Reggae / Ska

Lyrics:

Don’t you look at me so smug
And say I’m going bad.
Who are you to judge me
And the life that I live?
I know that I’m not perfect
And that I don’t claim to be.
So before you point your fingers,
Be sure your hands are clean.

Judge not
Before you judge yourself.
Judge not
If you’re not ready for judgement. Woah oh oh!

Stupid Girls – Pink


Stupid Girls by Pink from I’m Not Dead (2006)

Genre: Pop

Lyrics:

Uhhuh, uhhuh
Stupid girl (woo), stupid girls, stupid girls

Maybe if I act like that, that guy will call me back
what a paparazzi girl (yeah), I don’t wanna be a stupid girl (uhhuh)

Go to Fred Segal, you’ll find them there
Laughing loud so all the little people stare
Looking for a daddy to pay for the champagne (drop a name)
What happened to the dreams of a girl president
She’s dancing in the video next to 50 Cent
They travel in packs of two or three
With their itsy bitsy doggies and their teeny-weeny tees

Where, oh where, have the smart people gone?
Oh where, oh where could they be? (yeah yeah yeah)

I Write Sins Not Tragedies – Panic! At the Disco


I Write Sins Not Tragedies by Panic! At the Disco from A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out (2005)

Genre: Alternative Rock

Lyrics:

Oh,
Well imagine,
As I’m pacing the pews in a church corridor,
And I can’t help but to hear,
No, I can’t help but to hear an exchanging of words:
“What a beautiful wedding! What a beautiful wedding!” says a bridesmaid to a waiter.
“And yes, but what a shame, what a shame the poor groom’s bride is a whore.”

I’d chime in with a
“Haven’t you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?!”
No, it’s much better to face these kinds of things
With a sense of poise and rationality.
I’d chime in,
“Haven’t you people ever heard of closing a goddamn door?!”
No, it’s much better to face these kinds of things
With a sense of…
