It’s been a year of beautiful songs.
I hope they gave you as much joy as I got listening to them.
Here they are, all 367 of them, waiting for you to listen again.

Baba O’Riley – The Who

Here’s a song for Babao and his teenage wasteland. We’re all wasted after all.

Lyrics:

Out here in the fields
I fight for my meals
I get my back into my living
I don’t need to fight
To prove I’m right
I don’t need to be forgiven

Don’t cry
Don’t raise your eye
It’s only teenage wasteland

Sally ,take my hand
Travel south crossland
Put out the fire
Don’t look past my shoulder
The exodus is here
The happy ones are near
Let’s get together
Before we get much older

Teenage wasteland
It’s only teenage wasteland
Teenage wasteland
Oh, oh
Teenage wasteland
They’re all wasted!

Comfortably Numb – Pink Floyd

I don’t know how comfortably is, but I do wish I was numb like that sometimes.

Lyrics:

Hello,
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone at home?

Come on now
I hear you’re feeling down
Well, I can ease your pain
And get you on your feet again

Relax
I’ll need some information first
Just the basic facts
Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I’ve got that feeling once again
I can’t explain, you would not understand
This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb

I have become comfortably numb

O.K.
Just a little pin prick
There’ll be no more aaaaaaaah!
But you may feel a little sick

Can you stand up?
I do believe it’s working, good
That’ll keep you going through the show
Come on, it’s time to go.

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying
When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown
The dream is gone
I have become comfortably numb.

There’s No Way Out Of Here – David Gilmour

I wish I knew that before getting in. Not that it would’ve stopped me.

Lyrics:

There’s no way out of here, when you come in you’re in for good
There was no promise made, the part you’ve played, the chance you took
There are no boundaries set, the time and yet you waste it still

So it slips through your hands like grains of sand, you watch it go
There’s no time to be lost, you’ll pay the cost, so get it right
There’s no way out of here, when you come in you’re in for good

And never was there an answer, there an answer
Not without listening, without seeing

There are no answers here, when you look out you don’t see in
There was no promise made, the part you’ve played, the chance you took
There’s no way out of here, when you come in you’re in for good

And never was there an answer, there an answer
Not without listening, without seeing

There’s no way out of here, when you come in you’re in for good
There are no answers here, when you look out you don’t see in
There was no promise made, the part you’ve played, the chance you took

(There’s no way out of here, when you come in you’re in for good)
(There’s no way out of here, when you come in you’re in for good)
(There are no answers here, when you look out you don’t see in)
(There’s no way out of here, when you come in you’re in for good)

(There’s no way out of here, when you come in you’re in for good)
(There’s no way out of here…)

All Of My Love – Led Zeppelin

From me to you, via good ole Led Zepp. Get it, enjoy it, share it.

Lyrics:

Should I fall out of love, my fire in the light
To chase a feather in the wind
Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight
There moves a thread that has no end.

For many hours and days that pass ever soon
the tides have caused the flame to dim
At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom
Is this to end or just begin?

[Chorus:]
All of my love, all of my love,
All of my love to you.
[repeat]

The cup is raised, the toast is made yet again
One voice is clear above the din
Proud Arianne one word, my will to sustain
For me, the cloth once more to spin

[Chorus]

Yours is the cloth, mine is the hand that sews time
his is the force that lies within
Ours is the fire, all the warmth we can find
He is a feather in the wind

[Chorus]

Babe I’m Gonna Leave You – Miley Cyrus

Timeless song, unexpectedly good performance. Way to go, Miley.

For those missing Jimmy’s guitar:

Lyrics:

Babe, baby, baby, I’m Gonna Leave You.
I said baby, you know I’m gonna leave you.
I’ll leave you in the summertime,
Leave you when the summer comes a-rollin’
Leave you when the summer comes along.

Babe, babe, babe, babe, babe, babe,
Baby, baby, I wanna leave you.
I ain’t jokin’ woman, I got to ramble.
Oh, yeah, baby, baby, I believin’,
We really got to ramble.
I can hear it callin’ me the way it used to do,
I can hear it callin’ me back home!

Babe, oh, babe… I’m gonna leave you
Oh, baby, you know, I’ve really got to leave you
Oh, I can hear it callin ‘me
I said don’t you hear it callin’ me the way it used to do? Ooooh

I know, I know, I know I never, never, never, never, never gonna leave you, babe
But I got to go away from this place,
I’ve got to quit you, yeah
Ooh, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, ooh, don’t you hear it callin’ me?
Oh, woman, woman, I know, I know
It feels good to have you back again
And I know that one day, baby, it’s gonna really grow, yes it is.
We gonna go walkin’ through the park every day.
Come what may, every day, ooh

It was really, really good.
You made me happy every single day.
But now… I’ve got to go away! Oh, oh, oh.

Baby, baby, baby
That’s when it’s callin’ me
I said that’s when it’s callin’ me back home…
