Zero Song – Video & Lyrics from Ralph Breaks the Internet

ralph breaks the internet and princess venelope
Wreck-It Ralph himself – proof one can be both zero and hero.

Ralph Breaks the Internet, the lovable sequel to Wreck-It Ralph, plays almost like a Disney princess musical, which it kind of is, as an affectionate parody Disney surprisingly put forth in a very meta manner. (Disney having a sense of humor about themselves floored me in almost every way.)

It’s pretty catchy, but not the worst earworm ever: that award has to go to the aptly-named Catchy Song from The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.

Here’s the charming 8-bit end credit video and the movie lyrics from Zero, by Imagine Dragons:


Zero

(Sung by Imagine Dragons)

I find it hard to say the things I want to say the most
Find a little bit of steady as I get close
Find a balance in the middle of the chaos
Send me low, send me high, send me never demigod
I remember walking in the cold of November
Hoping that I make it to the end of December
27 years and the end of my mind
But holding to the thought of another time
But looking to the ways at the ones before me
Looking for the path of the young and lonely
I don’t want to hear about what to do
I don’t want to do it just to do it for you

Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it’s like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it’s like to always feel, feel
Like I’m empty and there’s nothing really real, real
I’m looking for a way out
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it’s like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it’s like to never feel, feel
Like I’m good enough for anything that’s real, real
I’m looking for a way out

I find it hard to tell you how I want to run away
I understand it always makes you feel a certain way
I find a balance in the middle of the chaos
Send me up, send me down, send me never demigod
I remember walkin’ in the heat of the summer
Wide-eyed one with a mind full of wonder
27 years and I’ve nothing to show
Falling from the doves to the dark of the crow
Looking to the ways of the ones before me
Looking for the path of the young and lonely
I don’t want to hear about what to do, no
I don’t want to do it just to do it for you

Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it’s like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it’s like to always feel, feel
Like I’m empty and there’s nothing really real, real
I’m looking for a way out
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it’s like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it’s like to never feel, feel
Like I’m good enough for anything that’s real, real
I’m looking for a way out

Let me tell you ’bout it, well let me tell you ’bout it
Maybe you’re the same as me
Let me tell you ’bout it, well let me tell you ’bout it
They say the truth will set you free

Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it’s like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it’s like to always feel, feel
Like I’m empty and there’s nothing really real, real
I’m looking for a way out
Hello, hello
Let me tell you what it’s like to be a zero, zero
Let me show you what it’s like to never feel, feel
Like I’m good enough for anything that’s real, real
I’m looking for a way out

By the way, Ralph Breaks the Internet is up for an Oscar for Best Animated Picture for the 2019 Oscars. It’s a very enjoyable romp, even if you never saw the original movie. Also up for consideration: The Incredibles 2, Isle of Dogs, Mirai, and Into The Spider-Verse. My money is on Spider-Verse, because it is that awesome, but each one of these are absolutely worthy.

All The Stars – End Credits Song from Black Panther – Video and Lyrics

black panther and king T'Challa
All The Stars from Black Panther is one hell of a great song.

Up for Best Original Song at the Oscars this year, All The Stars from Black Panther is looking very good. It’s up against the big contender Shallow from A Star Is Born, but it could certainly bring in a win if the Academy sees fit to go in a different direction from their usual drama-type film awards. All The Stars is a great song — very inspiring — and while I’m biased by being a total science fiction geek, I’d love to see something in my genre of choice actually win this time.

Here’s that gorgeous Black Panther end credits video, and the lyrics from All The Stars, just to get you excited and happy. You’re welcome. 🙂


All The Stars

(Sung by Kendrick Lamar, SZA)

Love, let’s talk about love
Is it anything and everything you hoped for?
Or do the feeling haunt you?
I know the feeling haunt you

This maybe the night that my dreams might let me know
All the stars are closer, all the stars are closer, all the stars are closer
This maybe the night that my dreams might let me know
All the stars are closer, all the stars are closer, all the stars are closer

Tell me what you gon’ do to me
Confrontation ain’t nothin’ new to me
You can bring a bullet, bring a sword
Bring a morgue, but you can’t bring the truth to me
Fuck you and all your expectations
I don’t even want your congratulations
I recognize your false confidence and calculated promises all in your conversation
I hate people that feel entitled
Look at me crazy ’cause I ain’t invite you
Oh, you important?
You the moral to the story, you endorsing?
Motherfucker, I don’t even like you
Corrupt a man’s heart with a gift
That’s how you find out who you dealin’ with
A small percentage, who I’m building with
I want the credit if I’m losing or I’m winning
On my momma that’s the realest shit

Girl, let’s talk about love
Is it anything and everything you hoped for?
Or do the feeling haunt you?
I know the feeling haunt you

This maybe the night that my dreams might let me know
All the stars are closer, all the stars are closer, all the stars are closer
This maybe the night that my dreams might let me know
All the stars are closer, all the stars are closer, all the stars are closer

Skin covered in ego
Get to talkin’, I get involved, like a rebound
No control, no off switch in the way that you bringing me down
It’s a turn on, get it away from me
Know you mean wrong, keep away from me
And it’s all wrong, get it away from me, yeah
I just cry for no reason, I just pray for no reason
I just thank for the life, for the day, for the hours and another life breathin’
I did it all ’cause it feel good
You could live it all if you feel bad
Better live your life
We are running out of time

Love, let’s talk about love
Is it anything and everything you hoped for?
Or do the feeling haunt you?
I know the feeling haunt you

This maybe the night that my dreams might let me know
All the stars are closer, all the stars are closer, all the stars are closer
This maybe the night that my dreams might let me know
All the stars are closer, all the stars are closer, all the stars are closer…

Main Song from A Star Is Born – Video and Lyrics from Shallow – by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper

lady gaga and bradley cooper in a star is born
Not a shallow song.

One of the top movie hits from 2018 is A Star is Born, starring Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper, and their best film song is Shallow, a duet that slays everyone who hears it. It’s almost a perfect song, and it won the awards to prove it:

  • Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song
  • Grammy Award for Best Song Written for Visual Media
  • Grammy Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance
  • Critics’ Choice Movie Award for Best Song
    Shallow also got an Oscar nod for Best Original Song, and the movie itself, A Star is Born, is nominated for seven other different Oscars: Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Cinematography, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Sound Mixing

It was also announced by the Oscars Academy (via Twitter) that Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper will perform Shallow at the 2019 Oscars. All the news sources say Copper will perform in a tuxedo as himself, and not as his character Jackson Maine. IndieWire says “Cooper doesn’t intend to bring back Jackson’s deep voice either as he said he has fully retired the character.” No matter. Lady Gaga will probably do her big extravagantly costumed persona as herself. Expect the song to bring down the house!

Here’s the movie video of their on-stage duet of Shallow, followed by the lyrics for you to learn, and sing along to in the privacy of your shower:


Shallow

(Sung by  Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga) 

Tell me somethin’, girl
Are you happy in this modern world?
Or do you need more?
Is there somethin’ else you’re searchin’ for?

I’m falling
In all the good times I find myself
Longin’ for change
And in the bad times I fear myself

Tell me something, boy
Aren’t you tired tryin’ to fill that void?
Or do you need more?
Ain’t it hard keeping it so hardcore?

I’m falling
In all the good times I find myself
Longing for change
And in the bad times I fear myself
I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in
I’ll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us
We’re far from the shallow now

In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
We’re far from the shallow now

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Whoah!

I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in
I’ll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us
We’re far from the shallow now

In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
In the shallow, shallow
We’re far from the shallow now…

In Da Club by 50 Cent – Video & Lyrics from the Happy Death Day 2U Trailer

happy death day 2 U is a horror sequel
Hey, it’s your birthday…again!

Happy Death Day is the most funny and outright cute horror film I’ve ever seen. It’s not scary at all (although the school mascot baby mask is genuinely hideous to behold.) I can’t believe I waited this long to watch it the first time. I wanted to get caught up on my Groundhog Day themed movies, and heard Happy Death Day 2U was coming along soon. I made the time, and just loved it. I can’t wait for the sequel this week!

In the meantime, this is the trailer song for both movies. I was definitely bummed In Da Club didn’t make it into the actual film. (Her ‘real’ birthday ringtone is much more annoying. I’ll add the link for that song below, just to illustrate the difference.) So this film does fall under the Misleading Trailers category, at least musically. Maybe In Da Club will make it into the sequel. I’ll know in two days.

Here’s the video and lyrics from In Da Club:


 

In Da Club (Happy Birthday Song) [EXPLICIT]

(Song by 50 Cent)

Go, go, go, go go, go, go, shawty
It’s your birthday
We gon’ party like it’s yo birthday
We gon’ sip Bacardi like it’s your birthday
And you know we don’t give a fuck
It’s not your birthday!

You can find me in the club, bottle full of bub
Look mami I got the X if you into taking drugs
I’m into having sex, I ain’t into making love
So come give me a hug if you into to getting rubbed

You can find me in the club, bottle full of bub
Look mami I got the X if you into taking drugs
I’m into having sex, I ain’t into making love
So come give me a hug if you into to getting rubbed

When I pull out up front, you see the Benz on dubs
When I roll twenty deep, it’s twenty knives in the club
Niggas heard I fuck with Dre, now they want to show me love
When you sell like Eminem, and the hoes they want to fuck
But homie ain’t nothing change hold down, G’s up
I see Xzibit in the Cutt that nigga roll that weed up
If you watch how I move you’ll mistake me for a player or pimp
Been hit wit a few shells but I don’t walk wit a limp
In the hood then the ladies saying “50 you hot”
They like me, I want them to love me like they love ‘Pac
But holla in New York them niggas’ll tell ya I’m loco
And the plan is to put the rap game in a choke hold
I’m feelin’ focused man, my money on my mind
I got a mill out the deal and I’m still on the grind
Now shawty said she feeling my style, she feeling my flow
Her girlfriend want to get bi and they ready to go
You can find me in the club, bottle full of bub

Look mami I got the X if you into taking drugs
I’m into having sex, I ain’t into making love
So come give me a hug if you into to getting rubbed

You can find me in the club, bottle full of bub
Look mami I got the X if you into taking drugs
I’m into having sex, I ain’t into making love
So come give me a hug if you into to getting rubbed

My flow, my show brought me the dough
That bought me all my fancy things
My crib, my cars, my pools, my jewels
Look, nigga, I came up and I ain’t changed

And you should love it, way more then you hate it
Nigga you mad? I thought that you’d be happy I made it
I’m that cat by the bar toasting to the good life
You that fagot ass nigga trying to pull me back right?
When my junk get to pumping in the club it’s on
I wink my eye at ya bitch, if she smiles she gone
If the roof on fire, let the motherfucker burn
If you talking bout money homie, I ain’t concerned
I’m a tell you what Banks told me cause go ‘head switch the style up
If the niggas hate then let ’em hate
Watch the money pile up
Or we go upside there wit a bottle of bub
You know where we fucking be

You can find me in the club, bottle full of bub
Look mami I got the X if you into taking drugs
I’m into having sex, I ain’t into making love
So come give me a hug if you into to getting rubbed

You can find me in the club, bottle full of bub
Look mami I got the X if you into taking drugs
I’m into having sex, I ain’t into making love
So come give me a hug if you into to getting rubbed

Don’t try to act like you ain’t know where we been either, nigga
In the club all the time, nigga, so it’s a problem pop off, nigga, G-Unit!

Lego Movie 2 – Video and Lyrics to Everything’s Not Awesome

Elizabeth-Banks-as-Lucy
Lucy, being moodily awesome.

I was surprised how pleasantly musical the second official Lego movie was, with at least three, and perhaps four, really cheerily/moodily stand-out hits. The original Lego Movie only had the one notable Everything is Awesome tune. It was such an earworm that WB execs clearly decided to build on that base for the continuing adventures of Emmet and Gang.

The sweetest, least potentially irritating Lego song is this new version of the original Awesome pop hit. (Unlike, say, Catchy Song…)

Here’s a video to the Lego sequel’s soulful reprise of Everything is Awesome, both stirringly bleak and sneakily hopeful.  (So far I only can find an audio version, as the movie JUST came out. I’ll add a movie clip when it’s available):


Lyrics to Everything’s Not Awesome

 

[Chorus] Everything’s not awesome
Everything’s not cool
I am so depressed
Everything’s not awesome

[Verse] Whoa, I think I finally get Radiohead
Bro, you should check out Elliot Smith
What’s the point? There’s no hope
Awesomeness was a pipedream
Aye, my spirits be at the bottom of the sea
Love’s not real, I just wanna eat carbs, pass the ice cream
I am not a thing you can just use to fill emotional voids with
Stop, everyone, okay, just listen

[Chorus] Everything’s not awesome
But that doesn’t mean that it’s hopeless and bleak
Everything’s not awesome
But in my heart, I believe (I believe)

[Bridge] We can make things better if we stick together (If we stick together)
Side by side, you and I, we will build it together (Yeah, we’ll be together)
Build it together (Together forever)
All together now

[Refrain] This song’s gonna get stuck inside your
This song’s gonna get stuck inside your
This song’s gonna get stuck inside your
This song’s gonna get stuck inside your
Heart

[Chorus] Everything’s not awesome
Things can’t be awesome all of the time
It’s an unrealistic expectation
But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try
To make everything awesome
In a less idealistic kind of way.
We should maybe aim for not bad
cuz not bad right now would be real great

[Bridge] Everything is better when we stick together (We stick together)
Side by side, you and I, we will sing it together (Always together)
Party forever (Together)

[Refrain] This song’s gonna get stuck inside your
This song’s gonna get stuck inside your
Heart…

The Lego Movie 2 – Video and Lyrics to Not Evil (by Tiffany Haddish)

The Lego Movie 2 – Super Cool Song by Beck (video and lyrics from the end credit scene)

 

The Lego Movie 2 – Video and Lyrics to Not Evil (by Tiffany Haddish)

Tiffany-Haddish-as-Queen-Whaterva
The most evil Duplo queen in all of Brickdom?

In a Lego Movie sequel full of big musical earworm hits, Tiffany Haddish managed to pull the house down with her showstopper Not Evil, as Queen Whatevra Wa’nabi explains that while she’s a completely totalitarian Duplo Queen, she’s honestly just sweet and loving, and completely misunderstood.

(Also, her name makes meta sense if you say it enough times. BTW, the “Systar System” reference took me a while to get as well.)

Here’s the early video for Not Evil ( I expect the scene itself will be available soon), followed by the Lyrics, below:


Not Evil

(Sung by Tiffany Haddish and Lego Cast, 2019)

[Intro: Elizabeth Banks & Will Arnett]
Oh no, are we in a musical?
Uh, hope not…

[Verse 1: Tiffany Haddish]
Hello, friends, my name is Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi
Don’t worry, I’m totally not one of those evil queens
You’ve read about in fairy tales or seen in the movies
And there’s no reason at all to be suspicious of me

[Refrain: Tiffany Haddish, Elizabeth Banks, & Choir]
Not evil, not evil, no, the least evil person I know
Hmm-mm
Not evil, not evil, no, the least evil person I know
…I don’t know. It’s very suspicious that you’re leading with this.

[Verse 2: Tiffany Haddish]
I’m so not a villain, I have zero evil plans
No ulterior motive, just want to help where I can
I wanna shower you with gifts ’cause I’m selfless and sweet,
So there’s no reason at all to be suspicious of
Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi
The least evil queen in history
And if you do not believe me
I totally won’t imprison your family
‘Cause that’d be evil, and that’s so not me

[Refrain: Tiffany Haddish, Elizabeth Banks, & Choir]
Not evil, not evil, no, the least evil person I know
…Really? ‘Cause I’m getting super evil vibes here.
Not evil, not evil, no, the least evil person I know

[Verse 3: Tiffany Haddish & Charlie Day]
Benny, do you like spaceships? ‘Cause I think they are great
How’d you know that? Loving spaceships is my one defining trait!
Well now, my good friend, you can build the spaceship of your dreams
On your very own planet with your own spaceship-building team

[Interlude: Elizabeth Banks, Charlie Day, & Nick Offerman]
Come on, do not fall for this!
Wyldstyle!
Haven’t you heard? There’s no reason at all to be suspicious of her!

[Refrain: Elizabeth Banks, Nick Offerman, & Choir]
Not evil, not evil, no, the least evil person I know
Yeah, I know she keeps saying that, but she’s clearly an evil queen
Not evil, not evil, no, the least evil person I know
Yar, well, I’m not buyin’ it

[Verse 4: Tiffany Haddish, Elizabeth Banks, & Nick Offerman]
MetalBeard, a pirate without a ship, that’s so cruel
It’s like a spider without a web, or a queen without a fool.
Even her metaphors are suspicious…
I’ve got a surprise for you —
A planet that’s really a pirate ship, and the population: your crew!
Her story checks out, she’s cool, not evil.

[Verse 5: Tiffany Haddish, Allison Brie, Will Arnett, & Elizabeth Banks]
What about me?
Unikitty, what’s the most glitter you can imagine?
A lot!
Times that by infinity —
Woohoo!

And, Batman,
Don’t even try it, lady, I don’t need anything —
Oh, I know, that’s why I’m going to give you half of everything!
Uh, like everything everything?
Everything everything.
She’s rad. This chick gets me.
Here’s some other adjectives people use to describe me:
Unduplicitous, unmalicious, unconniving, unnasty…
— You’re clearly just adding ‘un’ to words that describe you!
Who? Me?

[Chorus: Tiffany Haddish]
I’m Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi
I never trick people into trusting me
By hiding my true personalities
So I can use them to accomplish my evil deeds
‘Cause that’d be evil, and that’s so not me

[Bridge: Tiffany Haddish]
I never cheat, I never bribe, I never scheme, I never lie
And that wasn’t a lie when I said just now that I never lie
‘Cause I never lie, and I never laugh when children cry
And I never poison enemies of mine
And I never cry when I’m alone at night
‘Cause I’m not sad — I love my life!
I’m gettin’ off track; let me get back to the point I was makin’

[Chorus: Tiffany Haddish]
I’m Queen Watevra Wa’Nabi
The most least evil person you’ll ever meet
And if you make eye contact with me
I totally won’t have you executed immediately
‘Cause that’d be evil (Evil), evil (Evil), evil, and that’s so not…me…

 

The Lego Movie 2 – Video and Lyrics to Catchy Song (This is song is gonna get stuck inside your head)

Alison-Brie-as-Ultrakatty
Just try not to love this cat. Even her hairballs are perfect in Duplo space.

One thing the Lego movies do so well is serving up fun, fantasmic, and catchy super-chipper songs, guaranteed to take over your brain for days and nights without cease. Good for them, right? That’s a good viral marketing goal for Legos…but it’s a little hard on us, the viewer, trying to have mental peace.

[pullquote]The wise say the best way out is through, so just play this song now and get it over with.[/pullquote]

UPDATE: I cannot make this song stop playing in my head! The writers knew what they were doing when they composed and executed this catchy, catchy, ARGGGGG catchy song….the last few nights I lied there with this playing in an endless loop in my brain all night long. It became excruciating. Which is  unfortunate, since this is a really cute song and manages to one-up the already catchy tune Everything is Awesome, from the original Lego Movie.

Anyway, you’ve been warned. Here the video and lyrics (scroll down for the words) to the way too aptly named Lego 2′s “Catchy Song “:


Lyrics to Catchy Song (This Song is Gonna Get Stuck Inside Your Head)

This song’s gonna get stuck inside your
This song’s gonna get stuck inside your head…

Russian Doll Theme Song – Gotta Get Up Video & Lyrics (Netflix Does Groundhog Day)

red headed actress in russian doll on netflix
Gotta get up, gotta get out, gotta get home, and MAYBE not die this time.

Have you binged the new Netflix show Russian Doll? Season One is only eight episodes (a half hour each) long, and I snapped them up like candy all on one night. What makes that even better was I watched it on February 2, that oddball American holiday known as Groundhog Day.

Used to be that this was a day a large rodent would predict the coming of spring, but now Groundhog Day is better known as the time of year to pick a movie or TV episode showcasing a repeating day loop theme.  There’s a big list now, and it keeps growing. To my knowledge, Russian Doll is the first ever TV show to ever base an entire series on the repeating day plot.  It also has the biting wit and birthday shenanigans of similar-themed humor-horror film Happy Death Day.

I enjoyed the holy heck out of it, especially with Natasha Lyonne as the main character. (Remember her, as Nicki from Orange Is The New Black?) Our own RunPee Shani Ogilve is writing up a binge review as I write this. I’ll add the link as it emerges, but here’s a way to get started. Instead of Groundhog Day’s morning song refrain I Got You Babe, Russian Doll begins each “life” with Harry Nilsson’s Gotta Get Up. It’s bouncy, strangely dark, absurdly cheerful, and totally works. It’s also hard to get out of your head, so don’t even try. Enjoy the song and lyrics below:


 Gotta Get Up

(Remastered song by Harry Nilsson)

Gotta get up, gotta get out, gotta get home before the morning comes
What if I’m late, gotta big date, gotta get home before the sun comes up
Up and away, got a big day, sorry can’t stay, I gotta run, run, yeah
Gotta get home, pick up the phone, I gotta let the people know I’m gonna be late

There was a time when we could dance until a quarter to ten,
We never thought it would end then, we never thought it would end
We used to carry on and drink and do the rock and roll
We never thought we’d get older
We never thought it’d grow cold, but now

Gotta get up, gotta get out, gotta get home before the morning comes
What if I’m late, gotta big date, gotta get home before the sun comes up
Up and away, got a big day, sorry can’t stay, I gotta run, run, yeah
Gotta get home, pick up the phone, I gotta let the people know I’m gonna be late

Down by the sea she knew a sailor who had been to war
She never even knew a sailor before, she never even knew his name
He’d come to town and he would pound her for a couple of days
And then he’d sail across the bubbly waves and those were happier days, but now

Gotta get up, gotta get out, gotta get home before the morning comes
What if I’m late, gotta big date, gotta get home before the sun comes up
Up and away, got a big day, sorry can’t stay I gotta run, run, yeah
Gotta get home pick up the phone, I gotta let the people know I’m gonna be late…

Wake up again and again on Groundhog Day with Sonny and Cher (I Got You Babe lyrics & video)

groundhog day features an endless time loop and bill murray
Here we go again, and again, and again.

One of the running gags of the endlessly repeating loop of Bill Murray’s 90s film Groundhog Day features beleaguered weatherman Phil Conners waking up each day to Sonny and Cher’s 1965 oldies hit I Got You Babe, followed by this ‘chilling’ quote: “OK, campers, rise and shine, and don’t forget your booties, cause it’s cold out there. It’s cold out there every day.”

During the course of morning repeats (literally, with clearly over a thousand ‘days’ to endure), it all starts at 6am, when the alarm clock begins its dreaded, inevitable lyrics. Phil throws, smashes, drowns, and abuses the clock, but each day it keeps sucking Phil into another February 2nd. Phil’s story seems to be about becoming a certain kind of person, but the song we hear is a great shorthand to let the viewer know things are still cycling through the daily loop.

Here’s the video and lyrics to I Got You Babe, to get you in the mood for your own sense of the inevitable. Ever feel like everything is always the same, and nothing you do matters? I guess it gives you forever to learn to be happy and make things right. You can really delve into “Phil”-osophy with this film. Just how many days did he live over the course of this really fine film?

Here’s a Groundhog Day compilation  set to I Got You Babe:


 I Got You Babe

(Song by Sonny and Cher)

They say we’re young and we don’t know
We won’t find out until we grow
Well I don’t know if all that’s true
‘Cause you got me, and baby I got you

Babe
I got you babe
I got you babe

They say our love won’t pay the rent
Before it’s earned, our money’s all been spent
I guess that’s so, we don’t have a plot
But at least I’m sure of all the things we got

Babe
I got you babe
I got you babe

I got flowers in the spring
I got you to wear my ring
And when I’m sad, you’re a clown

And if I get scared, you’re always around
Don’t let them say your hair’s too long
‘Cause I don’t care, with you I can’t go wrong
Then put your little hand in mine
There ain’t no hill or mountain we can’t climb

Babe
I got you babe
I got you babe

I got you to hold my hand
I got you to understand
I got you to walk with me
I got you to talk with me
I got you to kiss goodnight
I got you to hold me tight

I got you, I won’t let go
I got you to love me so

I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe
I got you babe…

Lyrics and Video to Blitzkrieg Bop from Spider-Man – Homecoming

Part of why Spidey’s Marvel Cinematic Universe showing in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Avengers: Infinity War is better than any previous Spider-Man attempts lies in the fresh charm of Tom Holland, and the lively writing of Marvel’s producers and staff. Homecoming captured the rebooted hero the same way that only Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk fans identified with in Avengers: Assemble (with apologies to Bill Bixby and Lou Farrigno).

So, by some combination of verse and wit, Holland became the spider youth fans waited for, after several mixed live action attempts (in this post, let’s not discuss Mike Morales’ inspired, animated version of Into the Spider-Verse). And while our hearts broke a bit with the closing events of Infinity War, it’s no secret Spidey’s story continues in Marvel’s Phase 4: Spiderman: Far From Home.

To recall happier times with the MCU franchise — before winding up for Avengers: Endgame — take a moment and listen to the perfectly frenetic Ramones’ song Blitzkrieg Bop. This was a fun track to explore Spider-Man’s new skills with! The lyrics are a little hard to decipher here from just listening, so those are included below. The song starts about a minute after this video begins. Enjoy!

Lyrics to Blitzkrieg Bop

(Song by The Ramones, 1976)

Hey ho, let’s go! hey ho, let’s go!
Hey ho, let’s go! hey ho, let’s go!

They’re forming in straight line
They’re going through a tight wind
The kids are losing their minds
The blitzkrieg bop

They’re piling in the back seat
They’re generating steam heat
Pulsating to the back beat
The blitzkrieg bop

Hey ho, let’s go
Shoot’em in the back now
What they want, I don’t know
They’re all revved up and ready to go

They’re forming in straight line
They’re going through a tight wind
The kids are losing their minds
The blitzkrieg bop

They’re piling in the back seat
They’re generating steam heat
Pulsating to the back beat
The blitzkrieg bop

Hey ho, let’s go
Shoot’em in the back now
What they want, I don’t know
They’re all revved up and ready to go

They’re forming in straight line
They’re going through a tight wind
The kids are losing their minds
The blitzkrieg bop

They’re piling in the back seat
They’re generating steam heat
Pulsating to the back beat
The blitzkrieg bop

Hey ho, let’s go! hey ho, let’s go!
Hey ho, let’s go! hey ho, let’s go!
