LCD Soundsystem - Tonite Lyrics




Everybody's singing the same song
It goes "tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight"
I never realized these artists thought so much about dying

But truth be told we all have the same end
Could make you cry, cry, cry, cry, cry
But I'm telling you
This is the best news you're getting all week

Oh sure it's ruling the airwaves
What remains of the airwaves
And we're frankly thankful for the market psychology you're hipping us to

And all the hits are saying the same thing
There's only tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
And life is finite
But shit, it feels like forever
It feels like forever

Oh is everybody feeling the same stuff?
We're all wild
Except for you
And you know who you are
This is a love song

And you're getting older
I promise you this; you're getting older
And there's improvements unless
You're such a winner
That the future's a nightmare
And there's nothing I can do
Nothing anyone can do about this

And oh, I'm offering you a chance to get even
But oh, you know very well the dialect of negation
Sure enemies haunt you with spit and derision
But friends are the ones who can put you in an exile
But that's not right

And you're too sharp to be used
Or you're too shocked from being used
By these bullying children of the fabulous
Raffling off limited edition shoes

And what's it you do again?
Oh I'm a reminder
The hobbled veteran of the disk shop inquisition
Set to parry the cocksure of men's sick filth
With my own late era middle-aged ramblings
Every lover favors the same things
It's all "touch me, touch me, touch me, touch me tonight"
We maybe realize what it is we need before we die

And luck is always better than skill at things
We're flying blind
Oh good gracious
I sound like my mom

But out of the little rooms and onto the streets
You've lost your internet and we've lost our memory
We had a paper trail that led to our secrets
But embarrassing pictures have now all been deleted
By versions of selves that we thought were the best ones
'Till versions of versions of others repeating
Come laughing at everything we thought was important
While still making mistakes that you thought you had learned from
And reasonable people know better than you
That cost in the long run but they don't know the short game
And terrible people know better than you
They're used and abused of the once so dear listener
So you will be badgered and taunted and told that
You're missing a party that you'll never get over
You hate the idea that you're wasting your youth
That you stood in the background oh until you got older
But that's all lies
That's all lies

It's gonna have to be good enough, I can't do this anymore, my brain won't work

  3. Carlos Landeros

    BOLETOOOOOOO

  4. Lowis Caballero

    Un momento que estoy aquí de Boleteo

  5. ohhheyitsjake

    reminds me of Disintegration by The Cure

  6. dramares

    James in the Disco Graveyard

  7. Falcoph

    came here from tonite.dance

  8. Derek Grafton

    I refuse to believe that is what the singer looks like

  9. Jamie Ingels

    These guys hate life as much as I do.

  10. Alan Lloyd

    I'm here because DEVO likes this band.

  11. Rage Against The Hygiene

    Shoutouts to the guy who just sits there doing a crossword the whole video

  12. Fernando Gonzalez Ocampo

    Que buen tema y que buen video !

  13. styleemusic

    This right here is some of the best advice you can get on the generality of life.

  14. Tim Davis

    "There's only tonight, and life is finite - but shit, it feels like forever" - This is pretty much the story of our time

  15. Ümit Akdogan

    who's here from lucifer

  16. Tomo Tomić

    Najbolja pjesma za slušati kad se naudaraš bijelog

  17. Steve Kons

    I bought a new amp and speakers just to blast this song! Im pretty sure my neighbours know the words now 😎

  18. Nanaki XIII

    Que no pare el boleteo

  19. OscaR :D

    I am only 18 and I can not appreciate the oldskool of electronic music, but I honestly do not understand how it can be better than ODESZA or even Gorillaz

    MasterMegaManX

    Because of the lyrics. This song will give you the best advice you can hope for. "OldSkool" electronic music gives the song and 80's feel that you only really get if you grew up watching 80s movies and music. Its just nostalgia for most.

  20. MattBelt97

    Simon Cowell

  21. Mike Davis

    I love this song so much I cry when I listen to it

    Vamos ahí con el boleteo

  24. Stan Mann

    Does it matter whether their comments are back handed? At least they are telling you something.

    Stan Mann

    Compliments are for kids.

    Stan Mann

    Dope ass Ethiopian bartender likes to point out I don't like fruit or straws in my gin and tonic. "I like having fun."

  25. Joseph Hargreaves

    "You've lost your internet, and we've lost our memory"
    Older generation understanding what is bad to lose while mocking what the younger generation find important

    Jorge Palomo

    Boleto is love , Boleto is life

  26. Ken Segreto

    Very happy to have found you! Peace

  27. ripelivejam

    I heard the last part always as "But that's alright." So much for reassurance.

  28. ApolloSynths

    The bass is an Odyssey. Who'd have thought

  29. FlowingLily

    was expecting this to be a gogos cover tbh

  30. Garuru Mon

    ¡VENGA! ¡BAILA COMO UNA TENIA, BOLETO!

  31. Daniel Cropp

    I love how every LCD Soundsystem song just seems to start great and build from there.

  32. Carlos Landeros

    OTRO MOMENTO, ESTOY CON EL BOLETEO.

  33. oscar olivera

    ME ENCANTA!!! ESTE SONIDO Y MÚSICA PURO RETRO. ME RECUERDA LA MÚSICA DISCO. CUANDO IBA A MIS PRIMERAS FIESTAS EN 1977 -1978

  34. M Daddy

    Incredible

  35. Chip Cook

    You know, the girl/guy has really healthy-looking feet.

  36. jay walk

    You cant tell me this doesn't sound like Disintegration by The Cure....

  37. liva236muzika

    How the hell do you provide electricity to a rotating platform? That's a lot of cable.

  38. biffrapper

    Star Control 2

  39. GVike

    Oh good gracious! I sound like my mom! LOL

  40. Joe Janedoe

    Forwarding Love

    I'm free.
    What I've got is for free.
    Love to go around.
    Because I need love to come back, I'm sending love all around.
    Can't tunnel my visions.
    Because I'd lose it all.
    Love isn't luck.
    It's an adventure.
    Love isn't an apparition.
    No superstition.
    Efforts.
    Can't expect a rainbow from thin air.
    Putting it out there.
    Because I need the love to come back around.

  41. Emma’s Gacha stuff

    I am a reminder

  42. J Matteven

    Sounds very Front 242 -ish. Love it!

  43. bouncey steve

    webvr has left the game

  44. Frederick Röders

    This song is like a father figure's attempt at comforting you, even though the future is bleak. He's spot on with everything he says about me. ._.

  45. Reid Oakley

    "That's gonna have to be good enough, I can't do this anymore, my brain won't work." Me too James, me too...

  46. NDE108

    This gives me anxiety for some reason...

  47. GVike

  57. EGGMAN ROCKS CULTURES

  61. Jim Honeywell

    Awesome song

  62. Cam McBain

    I mean I wouldn't blame them if they didn't make another album, but I really want one. american dream got me really curious about where they're going with their music!

  63. thisone

    Sweet mother of shit how tf did this win a Grammy???

    An. S.

    You're here because of Gorillaz I'mma right? Well, Grammys are shit anyways. And this guy worked with Gorillaz in the past on the song called Do Ya Thing, they're friends and LCD SOUNDSYSTEM made one of the best albums of the generation. So stop being so butthurted by a goddamn shit show like the Grammys.

  64. NeverSaySandwich1

    What's wrong with that guy in the middle, he's got a dress on lol

  65. NeverSaySandwich1

    A perfect tune

  66. Variouss Tech

    so this won the grammy? wtf

    Frederick Röders

    Dont you relate to the text? Also, havent you ever heard of postpunk music? Sorry, I find it hard not to be elitist about postpunk music, but to me its the best thing ever. This stuff isnt even just postpunk, its also disco. Millenials AND baby boomers love it. Cant hate on that.

  67. Johnathan F.

    I know it's an odd question, can anyone *please* explain to me what James Murphy's mic is connected to?

  68. DJ Veesmooth

    is it just me or this sound like an 80s dance song??? Hot Hot Hot

  69. Alejandro Bravo Maccno

    This is the most pathetic song and video that I've seen and heard in my life

  70. Simon Cobcroft

    Bravo. You are weaponizing old age and turning it back on the younger generation who do get fooled again and again. Brilliant.

  71. Rahul Kumania

    I can't believe this song won a Grammy shiiiit !!!!

  72. Guillermo Muñoz Mansilla

    PIZZA BOY

  73. ʀᴏᴛᴛᴇɴ ɪɴsɪᴅᴇ

  78. Skyrilla

    Thanks.

  79. Loraine Spencer

    Lyrics kinda like Morrissey's?

  80. ForTheLoveOfRunning

    Proof that Jame Murphy is getting even better with age. Jesus Christ, y'all, if you get any better I'm going to have to go to therapy for what your music does to me.

  81. Stan Mann

    The ad was a pudgy belly father sitting on a wrap around porch talking about the pain of his dead kid. Died of a drug overdose.
    Legalize drugs. Hire really fng good female guidance counselors to explain drugs to students.

    Stan Mann

    But why females? The number of female predators is less than male. Plus those female predators numbers are juiced by heterosexual cases. Man on boy assault should be avoided at all costs. If it means you award winning men can't be around kids so be it.

    Stan Mann

    Feel bad about pudgy belly comment. And maybe i am jealous of the idea of drinking Arnold palmers on a wrap around porch. Need to be more like my grandfather. Exercise at home every day. Pushups. Situps. Exercise bike. 70s 40 percent silver collection complete.

  82. Jaden Schulz

    Accidentally watched this for the first time at 1.5 speed... I kinda liked it better

  83. ACS ONE

    nancy's just chilling reading a nice novel

  84. Stan Mann

    Write down the names/moments from your childhood that you can't explain. Ask relatives. Old family friends. These nagging unknowns are the keys to your repressed memories. Wanma stop bad habits? Start there.

    Stan Mann

    The man is always "it's not as it seems", "it's complicated."

    Funny cause when i trouble shoot things 99 percent of the time it's the simple solution.

  85. Stan Mann

    All the hits are saying the same things. LCD

  86. Ángel Nieto

    Un poco de Boleteo nunca está mal
