Track Name: Eric Kassel & Friends - I Love
I love little baby ducks
old pick-up trucks
slow-moving trains
and rain

I love little country streams
sleep without dreams
sunday school in may,
And hay

And i love you too

I love leaves in the wind
pictures of my friends
birds in the world
and squirrels

I love coffee in a cup
little fuzzy pups
bourbon in a glass
and grass

And i love you too

I love honest open smiles
kisses from a child
tomatoes on the vine
and onions

I love winners when they cry
losers when they try
music when it's good
and life

And i love you too

I love amps turned up to 10
drawing with a pen
nights that never end
and bass

I love rocking for the Rules
people when they're cool
music when it's good
and life

And I love you too
Track Name: Rank Strangers - Turf Club Theme
theres a place in st. paul where all the best bands play
its ruled by one man i'm not going to say his name
for two years straight every tuesday night
three groups play under horseshoe light
kids from all around town come down to see the sight
ears are ringing and its feeling alright down at the turf club

the crowd is always early and man they like to stay late
it's so loud if you can hear me we must be sounding great
everybody's coming from miles around from the golden apple valley to the uptown crowd seven days a week when the sun goes down you can hear it from the street sweet rock n roll sounds down at the turf club

twelve o clock send in the clowns they're all in the basement down in the lounge of the turf club
Track Name: Bang Pony - Wish It Away
Things were brighter when we were younger. We did a lot of dumb things. Now we're older and much wiser and time is slipping away. I try to blame it all on someone like that would make it ok. i try to make evrything allright, i tried to wish it away. Somethings hiding in the corner , got nothing nice to say. when it's over are you stronger or are you always afraid. i try to blame it......
Track Name: Puppies & Trains - Recognize the Enemy
Recognize the enemy to understand the plan
Because if it fails will dig in with our hands
And we still need eachother to get it done
Keep smiling now, keep having fun
And we still need eachother to get it done
I am the trigger on your gun
Together in love we will make our escape
Leaving all the greedy fools in our wake
And we still need eachother to get it done
Keep smiling now, keep having fun
And we still need eachother to get it done
I am the moon, you are the sun
Picture a moment when everything was so clear
Make up in your mind that there is no sadness or fear
Why can't you steer it home?
Track Name: Martin Devaney - Over My Shoulder
Wandering around as a young man at the bar
Felt the warmth of that smile from afar
You and yours always opened your hearts and took me under your wing
And I know you'll be looking over my shoulder every time that I sing

From the Midway out to Greenvale, songs were sung
Prince, The 'Mats, and Frank Zappa...Neil Young
Miss those nights the harvest moon shined full and bright, we had the world on a string
And I know you'll be looking over my shoulder every time that I sing

Now we gather around your posters and drawings and ticket stubs
It has always been an honor to be part of your club
You even paid a visit to the slender one to tell him he had to stay and keep fighting
And I know you'll be looking over our shoulders every time that we sing
And wherever you may wander I can be certain of one thing
I know you'll be looking over my shoulder every time that I sing
Track Name: That's What You Get (twyg) - Tuesday Night At The Turf
Starlight on a Tuesday night.
Anything you want to do, I'll leave it up to you.
Don't be so mystified, if I ask you to ride, in a van with me riding down University
Tonight at 12 o'clock on a Tuesday night at the Turf Club stage we'll rock AND roll! Tonight at 12 o'clock on the Turf Club stage, SPMC, the home of rock and roll!

Hey Leah, can you get me a beer? Have you seen Rob around here? Had a plate of Raleigh's taco's. Hey Rich, what time do the Mammy's go on? Because I wanna do a bong before their first song.
Track Name: Jeaneen Gauthier - Black Noise
"Wake up baby, now the dream is done
It's faded in the daylight like a shadow in the sun
In the sun

Wake up baby, now the day is new
You have seen the meaning of the sound surrounding you
Surrounding you
It's just black noise

Uncertain words you've always heard
That voice you listen to
It's just black noise that destroys you

In the basement of your days
And in the shadows where you grew
There was this black noise that kept coming through
But in your dreams you've heard
That not a word of it was true
It was just black noise you were listening to

Wake up baby, you have traveled far
Now return to learn you can be happy where you are
Where you are
And as you are

Uncertain words you've always heard
That voice you listen to
It's just black noise that destroys you
Wake up baby, wake up, something new is coming through
And there's no black noise to make you blue

Black noise just makes you blue
Black noise just makes you blue"
Track Name: James Randall - A Little Harmony
"(Bridge)
Just a little song
To help you on your way
Just a little song
Gonna get you through the day
Just a little song
When you get up out of bed
Just a little song you can sing inside your head"
Track Name: Dana Thompson & The North Coast - Everything's Alright
Standing on the shore a bird took flight
Through the trees into the sky
Over the water sparking blue and white
Come on with me and we’ll see what’s right

Last night I dreamt that you were there
Sayin’ that worry’s everywhere
Telling me not to watch the evening news
We’re gonna go and see what’s true

Newspapers say the end is nigh’
If we don’t repent, we’re all gonna die
What could be their reasoning to say
I won’t live with fear in me today


Everybody’s saying... these times are bad
But if you stop to pay attention
You’ll see that everything’s alright

Come on I’ll show you what is right
Bird in the wind, moon in the sky
Pebble in the water, sun shining so bright
I’m going to love you every day and night
I'm going to love you every day and night
Track Name: Joseph Coder Incinerator - Woodshed Trump
I stay in a singular zone
& I'm going it all alone
& I'm staying in at home sweet home
To to the rat-a-tat-tat of a trumped up poem
I'm already shinin'
I'm already shinin'
I'm already my oh my
I'm a lonely guy
A little woodshed trump for another time

Livin' it down like a drone
Got the key to the shut-in door
To be used at an opportune moment
And I'm doing it all oh oh
I'm already shinin'
I'm already shinin'
I'm already my oh my
I'm a lonely guy
Woodshed trump for another time

I stay in a singular zone
& I'm going it all alone
& I'm staying in at home sweet home
To to the rat-a-tat-tat of a trumped up poem
I'm already shinin'
I'm already shinin'
I'm already my oh my
I'm a lonely guy
Woodshed trump
Well, never mind
Track Name: Impaler - Creature In The Thigh High Boots
Bare naked as the day she was born.
Her clothes are black but barely worn.
On Mother's grave I'd have sworn.
She had vampire fangs and devil's horns
(chorus) Creature, creature
Creature in the thigh high boots
A super sexy she-thing
in a spider webbed G-string
Exotic as you'll ever find
Holy Shit! first comes to mind
(chorus)
There's a couple things she likes to wear
Most of the time she's completely bare
Don't you know it's rude to stare?
All good things they come in pairs
(chorus)
Track Name: The Outstanding Achievements in the Field of Excellence - Knew Order
i don't know why i never took the time
i guess i couldn't find the words
i know that anyone can answer your questions now, dear
the trick to me belongs in answering them right
and i spell psubmission with a capitol p
and it doesn't matter who complies
i know that anyone can answer your questions now
the trick to me belongs in answering them right
and i would like to sing a lullaby for you
but you don't want to go to sleep
Track Name: Dan Israel - I Still Could
"Well I’m wondering what, is my destiny, when will I finally start feelin’ free?
Seems like I’m always on familiar ground, to the same place I started, circling back around

Well nothing panned out, quite the way I’d hoped, everything looks perfect through a telescope,
But when you get near, you just see all the flaws, and then you gotta reckon with the pain you caused

I am ready for someone to tell me what this highway holds,
Been too many days that I cannot see how the darkness goes,
Wait a little, say you won’t, give up on me and knock on wood,
Don’t believe me when I say that I can’t win, ‘cause I, still could

Well the clouds are dark, and the sea is cold,
before you steady your stride, another year unfolds,
Something moves you forward, even when you’re tired,
Try as they might, they couldn’t smother your fire

I am wondering how much more this world can throw into my path,
Luckily I figured out sometimes all you can do is laugh,
Wait up for me, even if, it seems I can’t say nothing good,
Don’t believe me when I say that I can’t win, ‘cause I, still could
Track Name: Dillinger Four - Like Spreewells On A Wheelchair
Not so jumpy now
Downtown
No talk of concerns or fear
We'll just hand over all our tax money
And bitch about nothing but the cost of cable and beer
Oh how easy it is sometimes
To get lost in the party lines
Are we cops of the free even over seas
Or will this them and us mentality ruin our eyes
This is a message from the malcontent
We refuse to buy we're heaven sent
With our gameface on
We were a U.N. no show-bullies from the get go
Then they hit us with this love it or leave it shit
Like a dog in a cage trained to beg than sit
If that's how it's gonna be
I'm not calling this home

Mine's a little voice
Shit, I thought that was the point
Born from a freedom never realized
With manifest destiny kept like a sign from the skies
All around the world
They're ignored and pissed
Staring back at us
Like we're spoiled little kids
And how have we proven them wrong
With Hollywood, police states, embargos and pop radio songs

Chorus

We're the land of the free trial membership to crap
Where adults can't find world powers on a map
Where leaders run free with absconded power
Where a flag costs more than you make in an hour
Where I stand with so many but we're told we're alone
Where I work for a living but I never feel at home
Track Name: D.K. Hazledine (The Crop) - If I Lived Forever
If I lived forever I would go insane
Why should I live forever?
So don't freeze me, just squeeze me
Hang me from an apple seed

If I lived forever I would go insane
Why should I live forever?
So don't grieve me, just please me
and drown me like a chipmunk (chimp monk) in the sea.
Track Name: The Mad Ripple - This Is It
Well I wake
And I shake
Get up and have a smoke
I'm hearing voices though nobody spoke
The cigarette's empty but I'll take one more toke
And every day is a lifeboat

This is it
I come here to drink
I come here to smoke
And I come here to think
I love my wife and I love my child
But I'm staying here a little while

Well the days grow old when there's nothing to do
The kid's got a cold, so I've got one, too
The bar that I frequent don't open 'til four
I'll be there when they unlock the door

This is it
I come here to drink
I come here to smoke
And I come here to think
I love my wife and I love my child
But I'm staying here a little while

Well the years go by and the cost is too dear
Children once young soon disappear
Skin once so soft turns slowly to leather
As we sit at the bar
Drinking together

This is it
I come here to drink
I come here to smoke
And I come here to think
I love my wife and I love my child
But I'm staying here a little while
Yeah, I'm staying here a little while
I'm staying here a little while
