The Pogues – Wild Cats Of Kilkenny Lyrics 1 year ago
I've always thought this song felt like finding my way to a ceilidh at a little known place in the middle of a forest filled with wildcats.

Metallica – The Thing That Should Not Be Lyrics 1 year ago
All I really want to say when I hear this song is Ia! Ia! Cthulhu Fhtagn!

David Bowie – Lazarus Lyrics 2 years ago
It's almost as if he knew he was going to die, putting out the video for this only a few days before his death. Damn, he was something else.

Big Data – Business of Emotion (ft. White Sea) Lyrics 2 years ago
In the simplest terms, this is a song about the emotion experiment that Facebook subjected all its users to for a week in 2012 without their knowledge or consent.

Forest for the Trees – Dream Lyrics 2 years ago
@[liv85:5145] I know this was over a decade ago, but your thinking makes me consider the quote of Zhuangzi, "Once upon a time, I, Chuang Chou, dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly. I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly, unaware that I was Chou. Soon I awaked, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man."

The English Beat – Twist and Crawl Lyrics 4 years ago
At times it seems to be about the weird emotional/emotionless state a breakup can bring about. Other times it seems to take on an almost sci-fi edge, coming from some AI in a humanoid body who had a bad experience.

Part of me thinks it might be about someone who is generally emotionally detached trying to sort out being in love and eventual rejection.

Buzzcocks – Nothing Left Lyrics 4 years ago
It's always been, to me, the most accurate representation of how someone feels after being dumped. It's the purest feeling of having something taken, and with the line, "I've lost a lover/and I am certain/I'll get another/so why am I hurting?" it's cemented that it's about a breakup.
