Content notes: No standardized notes apply
Unsigned length: 03:05


Perhaps I am a miscreation

No one knows the truth there is no future here

And you're the DJ speaks to my insomnia

And laughs at all I have to fear

Laughs at all I have to fear

You always play the madmen poets

Vinyl vision grungy bands

You never know who's still awake

You never know who understands and

Are you out there, can you hear this?

Jimmy Olson, Johnny Memphis,

I was out here listening all the time

And though the static walls surround me

You were out there and you found me

I was out here listening all the time

Last night we drank in parking lots

And why do we drink? I guess we do it cause

And when I turned your station on

You sounded more familiar than that party was

You were more familiar than that party

It's the first time I stayed up all night

It's getting light I hear the birds

I'm driving home on empty streets

I think I put my shirt on backwards

Are you out there, can you hear this

Jimmy Olson , Johnny Memphis

I was out here listening all the time

And though the static walls surround me

You were out there and you found me

I was out here listening all the time

And what's the future, who will choose it?

Politics of love and music

Underdogs who turn the tables

Indie versus major labels

There's so much to see through

Like our parents do more drugs than we do


Corporate parents, corporate towns

I know every TV set that has them lit

They preach that I should save the world

They pray that I won't do a better job of it

Pray that I won't do a better job

So tonight I turned your station on just so I'd be understood

Instead another voice said I was just too late

And just no good

Calling Olson, Calling Memphis

I am calling, can you hear this?

I was out here listening all the time

And I will write this down

And then I will not be alone again yeah

I was out here listening

Oh yeah I was out here listening

Oh yeah I am out here listening all the time

Ooooooh, I like this a lot. I haven't watched Pump Up The Volume in far too long, and this really makes me want to put my DVD of it on. (Additionally, the underlying message behind the film and this vid seems very timely nowadays given recent events.)

Great job!

This is amazing!!! <333333333

The song choice is inspired, absolutely perfect. Your editing is fabulous and I love how well you matched the lyrics with the images - it felt like the song was literally written for the movie.

I have so much love for this !!!

Ideal marriage of music and canon. I'd really enjoyed this movie at the time but haven't seen it in ages.

I REALLY like this vid. The lyrics are such a marvelous fit for the movie's themes; I love that you've chosen to focus just not on Mark's connection with Nora specifically but on the way in which Mark, as Harry, speaks to and connects with so much of the school -- cutting through its "static walls" (love the clips of the principal on that line!).

I rewatched this movie a few years ago and was delighted at how well it holds up; this vid makes me want to watch it again. ♥

Oo, I've never seen the source, but this was a compelling bit of storytelling! I especially loved the match between the (school?) loudspeaker and "our parents do more drugs than we do."

One of my friends says "This was a movie about the internet before we had the internet," and this is just the perfect song for it.
