If you could only see the beast you've made of me
I held it in but now it seems you've set it running free
Howl by Florence and the Machine

Florence is spellbound by her lover.

Turning into a beast is a common theme in mythology and fairy tales, although often, true love turns a beast into a person (see below) and not the other way around. So perhaps, Florence’s lover is not good news.

You get the people and the government
Everybody taking different sides
Hometown Glory by Adele

I've been walking in the same way as I did
Missing out the cracks in the pavement
And tutting my heel and strutting my feet
Hometown Glory by Adele

Adele whimsically walks the streets of West Norwood. She is avoiding the cracks in the pavement when she walks as a schoolchild might, in line with the schoolyard rhyme “step on a crack, break your mother’s back.”

This could be difficult, as London (of which West Norwood is a suburb) has some pretty old streets

Nevermind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Someone Like You by Adele

Adele wrote this song when she found out her recent ex got engaged very quickly after they broke up. When she wrote it, she hoped she would find someone like him. These days, she’s happily in love with a new man, she’s an eight-time Grammy winner, and she was even gracious enough to wish her ex-boyfriend well.

1855-1901
Watch them built up a material tower
Think it's not going to stay anyway, think it's overrated
1901 by Phoenix

1855 refers to the first Exposition Universelle which took place in Paris. Between 1855 and 1901, Paris has hosted 5 Expositions Universelles and a lot of monuments were built for those fairs : Grand Palais, Eiffel Tower (in 1889) … The peace and prosperity in Paris allowed the arts to flourish, and many masterpieces of literature, music, theater, and visual art gained recognition.
In a performance recorded for Spin, Thomas Mars said:

“It’s a song about Paris. Paris in 1901 was better than what it is now. It’s still nice, but 1901 was better. This is a fantasy about Paris.“ Voilà ! And Vive la France !”

Find me in my Mitsubishi, eatin' sushi, bumpin' Fugees Fu-Gee-La by Fugees

But not Lauryn. She will be partaking in non-hoochie past times, like riding around the suburbs of Jersey in her Mitsubishi Eclipse, listening to her own CD and eating a California roll.
