Fiona Apple – The First Taste Lyrics 14 years ago
I think Aloha's right. The word "black" as a lyric in a song is typically used to mean nothingness, emptiness. So if you're down with this song being about unrequited love, then you can easily conclude that she is feeling "blue" as a result and is waiting to be over those feelings since nothing is becoming of them.

I personally think this a pretty simple concept to pick out if you've ever been in those shoes before b/c it's pretty much what happens when you can't have who you want... you just want to feel something else.

Nine Inch Nails – Hurt Lyrics 14 years ago
I dig the Hitman's interpretation. I was kinda young and pretty innocent when I first heard this song and although over the years I've seen how this song could be about drug use or even cutters who hurt themselves just to feel something different, I still like to think Trent had a broader meaning and that lot's of different people can relate to it.

To me, this song just epitomizes how you feel when you're in a bad rut in life. Whether you're struggling with your job, love, money, drugs, whatever, I think the taxing, draining, seemingly neverending emotions that accompany those situations make you feel like you're living this song.

Anyway, just my thoughts. This is a very powerful song regardless of what your take on it is.

Kenny Chesney – Please Come To Boston Lyrics 14 years ago
This song is rediculously awesome! I never really listened to b/c of the title... I thought it was kinda sketchy for him to sing a song about Boston when he's from Tennessee. I sure am glad I finally did give it a listen though.

Bob Seger – We've Got Tonight Lyrics 14 years ago
Definitely the sweetest way to sing about a one-night stand.

I read somewhere that he got the idea for this song from the scene in the movie "The Sting" where Robert Redford hooks up with this lady for one night. He knocks on her door and says it's 2AM (maybe 4AM, I don't remember) and I don't know nobody. Good scene from a good movie and an awesome song.

This song could also be about friends crossing the line. If you find yourself in that situation, I'd also recommend listening to Dave Matthews Band's "Say Goodbye"

Kenny Chesney – Old Blue Chair Lyrics 14 years ago
My bad, I didn't realize this song was originally on his previous cd and that originally it actually was "Malibu and diet." Anyone else think is a bit odd? Anyway, this does confirm my selling out to Cruzan theory, although I'm sure there's a good chance he actually drinks the stuff.

Kenny Chesney – Old Blue Chair Lyrics 14 years ago
I believe he actually says "Cruzan and diet" not Malibu. Not a big deal b/c it's still rum but I picked up on the Cruzan reference the first time I heard this song. I know Cruzan started sponsoring his tour a year or so ago, and while it is a really good rum, I just thought it was a bit odd than he wouldn't just say "rum and diet." I hope Kenny didn't sell out to them and now has to mention them in songs as part of a contract.

Cornershop – Brimful Of Asha Lyrics 14 years ago
Great song. I'll buy the 45-speed record thing, but what is a "brimful of asha" and why is it on a 45-speed record?

James – Laid Lyrics 14 years ago
Interesting interpretation nesterreg, however if "she" refers to himself as his cross-dressed other half, I shudder to think what is meant by "But she only comes when she's on top" in the first verse. I believe the correct assumption about this line is that she is on top and he is on the bottom, but if she is really he and he is really she... I'm just not quite sure that's the picture these guys intended to paint.
I don't think I ever looked into this song too much myself. I guess I always thought that it was a guy dating a sexaholic or nympho and then realizing that he had to get out of the relationship b/c it was getting out of hand. I suppose some might think that's a bit of an unrealistic reason to break off a relationship, but I can see it happening.

Five Times August – Better With You Lyrics 14 years ago
yeah, definitely an awesome song. i agree with the john mayer comparision, but if that turns you off instead of on, i actually think this is a more masculine alternative

Oasis – Wonderwall Lyrics 14 years ago
What I meant to say at the end there is that Noel rarely holds a theme throughout an entire song. His style is more like the general idea or thought behind a song is maintained by the lyrical style and musical composition rather than the word-for-word meaning of the lyrics. It's an effective way to write, although I do admit that it makes him seem more poetic at times when in actuallity, he just couldn't find a better line to fit that particular moment. Whatever, if you're a fan of the group, the overall vibe and emotion of their music is what really shines through.

Oasis – Wonderwall Lyrics 14 years ago
It's awesome Wonderwall is nearly a decade old and people are still talking about it!

Liam and Noel's older brother Paul wrote a book about Oasis and explained what the term "wonderwall" means. As kids, Liam and Noel shared a bedroom, and they took to writing on one of their walls. This became their outlet, a place to express their dreams and aspirations, poems to girlfriends, hopes for escaping their dull and dreary lives in Burnage. They called it their wonderwall.

So I think when Noel sat down to write this song about his then girlfriend and now ex-wife, he's affectionately proclaiming her as his love, his happiness, his hope, or basically his wonderwall.

I know, it's kinda abstract, and I know that Noel doesn't really write songs completely and consistently about one central them or idea, but I definitely feel this sentiment is in there.
