Funny because it's a record exec saying how much he loves the band but thinks there's an actual person called Pink Floyd in the band (which of course there isn't). Cracked me up first time I heard it.

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics -> Latest Entries

Hazell Dean's, "Who's Leaving Who"
The Lyrics:
Here we are with good-bye in our eyes,
Running out of reasons to try.
The leaves of change have fallen down
With both of us wondering why.
We're all alone but still it seems
We're thousands of miles apart.
The sands of time have shifted now,
And the end is beginning to start.
Why:
Don't let the bouncy dance tempo and the perky Stock/Aitken/Waterman production fool you; this song is about a couple drifting apart in their relationship.
