about

The soundtrack for 'Fast Times At Ridgemont High' was a partial inspiration with both 'Love Rules' by Don Henley & 'Somebody's Baby' by Jackson Browne both capturing the spirit of highschool teenage angst.

The lyrical theme is also playing off of George Michael's 'Careless Whispers'.

And add to that the harmony influence from the pure pop perfection of the Nick Lowe classic gem, 'Cruel To Be Kind'.

Melancholy Pop

lyrics

VANITY RULES

I can see you dancing there
Your broken grin and long blonde hair
Those heartbreaking eyes just burn right through me

You push my heart across the floor
As you hold him close like we did before
And its so hard to bare, as you dance past me

Vanity Rules when a fool believe
Love is a lie that nobody needs
Sometimes you have to give in
Be willing to lose if you think you can't win
Let go of your pride and look deep inside
It's true, how Vanity Rules

The Dj plays our favorite song
And it feels so right but its all gone wrong
As you dance with your head upon his shoulder

The gym is flashing off and on
As your face lights up and then its gone
As a kiss never lies, I know its over

Vanity Rules when a fool believe
Love is a lie that nobody needs
Sometimes you have to give in
Be willing to lose if you think you can't win
Let go of your pride and look deep inside
It's true, how Vanity Rules

Vanity Rules when a fool believe
Love is a lie that nobody needs
Sometimes you have to give in
Be willing to lose if you think you can't win
Let go of your pride and look deep inside
It's true, how Vanity Rules
