I have to connect a piece (as in the lyrics) of a song and one of the following themes.
-Don't sell out
-The strength of family
-The problem of conflicting expectations
-Love and trust prevail over deceit and selfishness
-Stereotyping and Prejudice

I wanted to of course pick a TGA song, fav band of all time. I am having trouble finding a selection from a TGA song that exemplifies one of the themes. It's hard...Their songs, mostly on the 59' sound keep making me hear fictional stories with references to things from Charles Dickens novels to Counting Crows and Bob Dylan songs instead of one of the themes. It doesn't have to be completely about it, I don't think, just some lyrics that share the same theme. Help?

Black Betty and the Moon definitely fits the Don't sell out theme



If you watch the start of this video he says something about how you shouldn't sell out your friends for money. hope that helps, sire rendeer

The one that jumps out is Bring It On for love/trust/deceit/selfishness.
