Pink Floyd – Echoes Lyrics 15 years ago
The lyrics of this song appear to be "borrowed from" or inspired by the Beatles' Across the Universe. Compare the lyrics and see, especially the exact words "inciting and inviting." Anyone know anything about the connection?

The Beatles – Across the Universe Lyrics 15 years ago
I was wondering about the connection between this song's lyrics and the lyrics of pink floyd's echoes. Since echoes was released a year later I assume the Beatles were the ones getting borrowed from. Does anyone know the story behind this?

thanks, it's been edited to include the missing line

Yes – Leave It Lyrics 16 years ago
No one's commented on this? This is a great song, my favorite on 90125 other than owner of a lonely heart. And it has that really dated music video with cheap video effects being applied to a photo of the band.

The Fixx – One Thing Leads To Another Lyrics 16 years ago
I never had any idea what this song was about (I assumed a relationship), but even though it was way too early it does match up with W perfectly.

Pink Floyd – Astronomy Domine Lyrics 16 years ago
hulio: if this is about hell, why is it about icy water instead of firey purgatory?

submissions
Aphex Twin – Come to Daddy Lyrics 16 years ago
This song really was meant to be a parody, and it's ironic that it became one of his more popular songs. It's making fun of "disturbing" but unintelligent music. Like other people here I heard that he was specifically targeting Prodigy, but I'm not familiar enough with what they sound like to tell if that's true.

submissions
Pink Floyd – Astronomy Domine Lyrics 16 years ago
craigus's corrected lyrics are way better than the ones originally posted, but isn't the ending "the sound surrounds the icy waters underground" as in the orignal posting? That's what I hear in the song, anyway.

submissions
Queen – Stone Cold Crazy Lyrics 16 years ago
The original Queen version is about a crazy guy pretending he's a gangster, but Metallica's version get rid of the fun aspect of the song and makes it about an acual violent situation.

Led Zeppelin – Houses of the Holy Lyrics 16 years ago
one of the best guitar riffs of all time. am i right here folks?

submissions
Blonde Redhead – In Particular Lyrics 16 years ago
This song is good on the album, but it's AMAZING live. So much more intense.

submissions
Weird Al Yankovic – Dare To Be Stupid Lyrics 16 years ago
It's not a parody of a specific song, but he was trying to impersonate the general style of the band Devo.

submissions
Xiu Xiu – Support Our Troops OH! (Black Angels OH!) Lyrics 16 years ago
I have to say that a high school style rant about jocks is really out of place in a serious antiwar song. It's as though he considers being a jock to be a tragedy on par with the grisly death of the four year old he describes. Whatever magazine you read that called it a childish thing to say: i agree.

submissions
The Yardbirds – A Certain Girl Lyrics 16 years ago
they were the birth of led zeppelin via starting jimmy page's career, and led zeppelin was arguably metal. sensible enough.

Europe – The Final Countdown Lyrics 16 years ago
Good or bad, that synth part is classic material.

Apocalypse .Eve – Conversation At The End Of The World Lyrics 16 years ago
You asked for critique so:

Be less concerned with sounding poetic, and more with pure self expression.

Charles Bronson – Let's Start Another War So I Can Sing About Stopping It Lyrics 16 years ago
Best song title ever.

submissions
Janet Jackson – Nasty Lyrics 16 years ago
I believe this song is just called "nasty." And it's pretty good.

submissions
The Braindead Monkeys – Juicy Fruit Lyrics 16 years ago
Based on the theme song played in Juicy Fruit gum commercials.

submissions
Yes – Roundabout Lyrics 16 years ago
Jumpy Jack, if this song is so bad, why are you wasting your time on it by seeking out its lyrics and trolling like crazy?

submissions
The Braindead Monkeys – The Plaid Track Lyrics 16 years ago
This song is essentially just them singing along with and adding some effects to Syd Dale's "Mexican Ding Ding."

submissions
The Braindead Monkeys – The Monkey Show Lyrics 16 years ago
Based on the Muppet Show theme song.

submissions
Deerhoof – Apple Bomb Lyrics 16 years ago
in addition to all the stuff TeN read into it, the "final tree" refers to a virtually extinct species of African tree (Encephalartos Woodii). There's only one known example of it still alive, and it cannot reproduce (hence the lines about cloning). That isn't made clear in the song at all, but it's mentioned in the CD insert. Google the species name for more info.

submissions
Interpol – Evil Lyrics 16 years ago
it's hard to tell what he's saying at times, but these lyrics are definitely a little off. for example, it's, "your pleasure's set upon slow release," rather than "relief."

submissions
The Damned – Plan 9 Channel 7 Lyrics 16 years ago
oh, and the lyrics are "her domain" rather than "hello may."

submissions
The Damned – Plan 9 Channel 7 Lyrics 16 years ago
to clarify, it's about the woman who played the lead role in "plan 9 from outerspace" -- widely considered to be the worst movie ever made -- and who went on to attempt a more serious career on channel 7 as some sort of television personality.

The Damned – Dozen Girls Lyrics 16 years ago
vampire? isn't it just about being an inept guy who can't figure out what he's doing wrong?

submissions
The Damned – Looking At You Lyrics 16 years ago
This is actually a cover song -- I believe it was originally done by the motor city 5.

submissions
MC Paul Barman – I'm Fricking Awesome Lyrics 16 years ago
the webcomic "boatface" features an episode titled "i'm frickin awesome," which is just a character from the comic saying the lyrics while the song plays in the background. search for "boatface" on google to see it.

submissions
Deerhoof – Holy Night Fever Lyrics 16 years ago
it's a little hard to distinguish when sung, but the lyrics as written in the cd insert are actually "when the feeling _isn't_ right." maybe a little pedantic, but it adds an ironic twist.

submissions
Pink Floyd – Us and Them Lyrics 16 years ago
This song is not only about warfare -- it's about the cause of it, ie class struggles (it's rather marxist): "with, without, and who'll deny it's what the fighting's all about?" It's about the tendency of people to cause suffering for the sake of their own greed and personal advancement, and how this gets humanity nowhere.

submissions
Deerhoof – This Magnificent Bird Will Rise Lyrics 16 years ago
Since there were literally zero places online to find deerhoof lyrics at the time of this writing, and since deerhoof is my favorite current band, I thought I'd help the world out by putting up some of their songs. (Perhaps I'll add more at some point?) Until then, definitely check them out -- experimental pop/rock/sometimes noise, with a cute little girl from Japan on vocals.

submissions
At the Gates – Cold Lyrics 16 years ago
about having a disgust for life on earth and a desire to commit suicide

submissions
At the Gates – Suicide Nation Lyrics 16 years ago
About the failures of modern society to provide meaning for the lives of its members, resulting in a fearful, morbid populace.

submissions
At the Gates – Slaughter Of The Soul Lyrics 16 years ago
This song and most of the others on the album for which it is the title track are about the destruction of traditional ways of thinking, and freeing one's mind in general. (Not in the hippy sense, of course.)
