The Next Best American Record

Recommended Posts

My baby used to dance underneath my architecture
To the Houses of the Holy, smokin' on them cigarettes
My baby used to dance underneath my architecture
He was cool as heck
He was cool as heck

 

& we were so obsessed with writing the next best American record
That we gave all we had 'til the time we got to bed
'Cause we knew we could
We were so obsessed with writing the next best American record
'Cause we were just that good
It was just that good

 

Whatever's on tonight, I just wanna party with you
Topanga's hot tonight, I'm taking off my bathing suit
You made me feel like there's something that I never knew
I wanted

 

My baby used to dance underneath my architecture
He was '70s in spirit, '90s in his frame of mind
My baby used to dance underneath my architecture
We lost track of space
We lost track of time

 

And we were so obsessed with writing the next best American record
That we gave all we had 'til the time we got to bed
'Cause we knew we could
We were so obsessed with writing the next best American record
'Cause we were just that good
It was just that good

 

Whatever's on tonight, I just wanna party with you
Topanga's hot tonight, I'm taking off my bathing suit
You made me feel like there's something that I never knew
I wanted
We play the Eagles down in Malibu

& I want it

 

It's you

All the roads lead to you
Everything I want and do

All the things that I say
It's true

All the roads lead to you
Like the 405 I drive through
Every night and every day
I see you for who you really are
Why the thousands of girls love
The way Bill plays guitar

 

Whatever's on tonight, I just wanna party with you
Topanga's hot tonight, I'm taking off my bathing suit
You made me feel like there's something that I never knew
I wanted
We play the Eagles down in Malibu

& I want it
There's something that I never knew

I wanted

RIP “you did it all for fame”


If by not 'up to par' you mean distilling the worst elements that only kind of work in songs, sure. I could put a dictionary audiobook on shuffle and put it to an instrumental of old money and some of y'all would still be saying it's 50/50 lmfao.

Where did apple music post it?

It looks like that reference has been deleted out of the album description now

"Topanga's hot tonight"

Yes, I am aware . . .

This line’s making me wonder if this is literally the “final version” that was scrapped from LFL. When she was asked about it in the interview where she revealed Yosemite had been scrapped (bless her soul), she said that it’s another one that mentioned Topanga and the 405 if IIRC. That would also explain why the instrumental sounds literally the same

but wasn't the BAR we have ripped from its music video?

I never got why TNBAR was referred to as Yosemite's sister track, since Yosemite's a love song that was too happy for lfl, but it would make sense if this new version was actually the scrapped version meant for lfl. Maybe the new version takes a turn and she starts singing the "you did it all for fame" towards the end?? Idk. It's a 6 minute long song, who knows.

I'm so depressed about these lyric changes. It had so much meaning before, and now it sounds kind of vapid?

I'm not particularly fond of it either but it does fit the theme of the album

I think they were sister tracks because they were both acoustic (at least, at the beginning of BAR). Lyrically, on BAR, she was «at peace» with that relationship that had ended and on Yosemite, the way she described it, she is falling in love peacefully. so, BAR was «old relationship over» and Yos is «new happy relationship».
