One slowlane song is from a TV Show "Roary", where Big Chris sings into his karaoke machine "there's such a job that I do, it makes me fun everyday" or something similar.

What are some other slowlane songs?
Maybe also sidewalk and fastlane songs.

Ben Folds - Fred Jones Pt. 2

It's the story of a slowlaner's last day on the job.

He's worked his whole life at the newspaper.

It's his last day, and no one gives a shit.

No one even knows his first name.

He's just a cog in the wheel.

In his whole career, nothing was changed. No impact was made.

He sits at home now and tries to busy himself with an unfulfilling hobby.

But all he can do is stew and be pissed at the system.

A system that has already forgotten him and put him out to pasture.

Nothing left to do but exist and die.

He's forgotten, but not yet gone...

I feel like alot of main stream songs Are slow lane, they all seem to have a "hey don't worry about the future just party and live for the weekend" kind of attitude.

It's ironic really because these kinds of artists are sometimes trying to appeal to the average 9-5 women and men but haven't worked a shift in thier life.

A lot of rap/grime, punk and reggae will generally have some kind of hatred for the slow lane system.

Come on... I can’t believe nobody has posted this. Little disappointed in you guys.


New blood joins this Earth
And quickly he's subdued
Through constant pained disgrace
The young boy learns their rules
With time the child draws in
This whipping boy done wrong
Deprived of all his thoughts
The young man struggles on and on he's known
A vow unto his own
That never from this day
His will they'll take away

What I've felt, what I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never be, never see
Won't see what might have been
What I've felt, what I've known
Never shined through in what I've shown
Never free, never me
So I dub thee "Unforgiven"

They dedicate their lives
To running all of his
He tries to please them all
This bitter man he is
Throughout his life the same
He's battled constantly
This fight he cannot win
A tired man they see no longer cares
The old man then prepares
To die regretfully.....

Most classic rock "live for today" songs are sidewalk songs haha. Most pop songs are either sidewalk or slowlane.
Most "hustle"-oriented hip-hop songs are Fastlane with "cool" criminal overtones (e.g., "Hypnotise" by B.I.G.; almost everything by 50 Cent, etc.)

Dorothy, I know you've had amazing dreams
We can't go chasing down each golden street
Each and every rainbow, each passion, each unattainable goal
We're not in dreamland anymore
Dorothy, it seems you'll never understand
This here land is everything we have
Every sweat-stained collar, every dollar,
Every bent and bloodied spur
We're not the kids that we once were
We can't be the adults we want to be
Dreams are all you have, dreams have held you back
Dreamers never live, only dream of it
Dream cars, dream houses, dream jobs, dream spouses
Dreams of tornadoes, cities of emerald
And I know we swore we'd make more of ourselves
But this plot is literally our lot in life.
American dreams pollute our cities
Our piece of the pie can't fill our bellies
(More!) More square inches
(More!) Picket fences
(More!) Clothes on the line
(More!) Naps at noontime
More of our fair share
More of our birthright
More of what we're owed
More...
Paid vacation
(More!) Entertainment
(More!) Compensation
(More!) Gratuitous gratification
Dorothy, wake up, Dorothy, wake up
Dorothy, wake up, it's time for work
