The Stills – Gender Bombs Lyrics 11 years ago
i agree completely. there are certain albums that speak an october language. at once bathed in colours yet dripping a rich sadness at the decay of both literal and metaphorical sunlight. this is definitely one of them. keep coming back to it again and again. hope you will too.

Phoenix – Lisztomania Lyrics 11 years ago
i think it's about how you sometimes have to find yourself when you come out of a relationship...you can't discuss it, you can burn the pictures, the memories might still be fresh, but in the end it's something that has to be born out of the ashes and you don't quite know what it is until you take a look at yourself and you realise you are somehow different. anyway, i can relate. the thing i really like about this song is that phoenix manage to capture something indefinable about time and relationships changing, maybe stopping to think that it's not as easy as it seems to be. "from the mess to the masses" maybe it's about indifference, like "yeah i don't care. do whatever." please, more people write about this, i'd like to know what you think.

The Lightning Seeds – All I Want Lyrics 12 years ago
a call to arms "stop what's going on, stop what's going wrong, you'd better listen from now on". the speaker is telling the subject of the song that they are missing out on something vital and profound, indulging in their petty problems when it's much easier than they thought to be free.

Underworld – Dirty Epic Lyrics 12 years ago
resonator, that makes a lot of sense. i was inclined to agree with ANorthernSoul76 and say it had no particular meaning other than technological paranoia, sex and emotional dysfunction related to sex. Maybe this is them just venting their disgust about hearing all those sordid secrets and deceitful/duplicitous lives.

Interpol – PDA Lyrics 12 years ago
yeah the last section of the song where daniel is talking about "something to say, something to do, nothing to say, there's nothing to do" probably ranks as one of the best moments in music, EVER.

Van She – Changes Lyrics 12 years ago
yeah i agree with the first person about this song being like pogo. the australians seem to be able to do beach/sunny nostalgia like no one else.

The Whitest Boy Alive – Golden Cage Lyrics 12 years ago
yes i agree that this is more about success in life/work than suicide or anything else mentioned before. the lines "of course i miss you and i miss you bad/but i also felt this way when i was with you" maybe points to the fact that the person who the song about was never around during the relationship that much because of work commitments, and maybe that was one of the big factors that caused the relationship to fail...they picked their work/success over the one who loved them.

Cut Copy – Far Away Lyrics 12 years ago
maybe it's about going on tour and having to sacrifice a relationship because of it? or even just moving to another country, i suppose.

Suede – Stay Together Lyrics 12 years ago
i'm not quite sure what this song is about, well i have 2 different interpretations: one, it could be about the all-consuming nature of young love, where it's either passion or tragedy. and the other, about being stuck in a relationship that's going nowhere and neither person has the courage to change its course so it's much easier to think about things in fatalistic terms than face up to the reality. hm. one of my favourite songs regardless. i still remember the day this came out on single...valentine's day 1994. so appropriate, this band is one of the greatest things to come out of britpop.

Magnet – On Your Side Lyrics 12 years ago
yeah it's saying that the speaker has seen the good, but he's also seen a lot of the bad and he's still decided he's on their side. simple, lovely and touching. this band is so awesome.

submissions
Magnet – Overjoyed Lyrics 12 years ago
simple and beautiful. this song is about reaching that apex of joy (here the speaker compares it literally to being on a plane at 30 000 feet) and knowing that things can only go downhill from there. but it doesn't matter, because the feeling at that moment is enough.

submissions
Magnet – The Day We Left Town Lyrics 12 years ago
it's about finally making that escape with the one you love. maybe the day you look around and finally realise "why do we put up with all this shit, let's just run away" and thus this song manages to capture that feeling perfectly, real or imagined. lovely.

The Most Serene Republic – Present of Future End Lyrics 12 years ago
i think it's about a long-distance relationship and the fact that they can communicate more often via technology but they are still apart, and the frustration and irony that must bring.

maybe it's 'holidays' instead of 'harbor daze'? makes more sense, and it's what i always thought it was.

VHS Or Beta – Love In My Pocket Lyrics 13 years ago
love this! maybe about someone who can't figure out if they love the speaker, and the speaker is telling them to appreciate what they have now and here instead of thinking they are somehow wasting their time.

The Radio Dept. – A Window Lyrics 13 years ago
a perfect summer urban love song....as with everything else with the radio dept., how it sounds is half the story. it inhabits the half-awake driftspace, maybe just idle thoughts one thinks while looking out the window? or maybe just general frustration about not being able to get into the swing of things, which i'm sure everyone feels at one point or another. lovely, lovely.

Maritime – We've Got to Get Out Lyrics 13 years ago
"we've got to get out on the summer days to fight the loneliness and the fear. the streets are so amazing they never stay the same round here." how beautiful?! on the most basic level this song is about just getting out in the sun and leaving all your problems behind for a while.

Digitalism – Pogo Lyrics 13 years ago
whoa discovered this fully by accident, but soo good. about the "good, old wild days" and how you see the past through a distance and it's somehow better like that.

Human Television – Saw You Walking By Lyrics 13 years ago
the nightmare of seeing your ex on the street and the adrenalin rush it causes? that's the only thing i could come up with. this band's lyrics are beautiful.

Black Kids – I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance with You Lyrics 13 years ago
no to the person above. he definitely says "you are the girl i've been dreaming of ever since i was a little girl." it's supposed to be in the morrissey school of gender-ambiguous songwriting.

but i agree totally about it being a beautiful, happy and deep song. it's like getting a slice of those feelings that you felt about other people in your late teens/early twenties. really, the 'kids' in this band's name has never been more fitting.

Young Galaxy – Come and See Lyrics 13 years ago
yeah about when you have a random encounter with someone and it seems so perfect...you really start to wonder...is it coincidence or connection?

Black Kids – Hurricane Jane Lyrics 13 years ago
"We could spend the night together. Or alone. That would be better." Love it!!

It's about what happens when the 'popular' girl takes an interest in the indie-nerd? He knows he has a weakness for her, but no good will come out of it. Still, he's right; it's worth it, or at least you tell yourself that.

submissions
Black Kids – Hit the Heartbrakes Lyrics 13 years ago
she's really into him, but the way she is acting about it is getting mundane for him and he finds himself losing interest. it's about those relationships that get 'serious' too quickly, and how it's always best to maintain the 'friend' in girl/boy-friend.

submissions
Cut City – Damaged Lyrics 13 years ago
thanks! i kept getting in confused with the interpol song.

submissions
Tahiti 80 – Soul Deep Lyrics 13 years ago
i think the speaker is drawing strength from the fact that this person has 'soul', saying that they are 'wasting their time' but at the same time it's what the speaker wants to keep 'inside my heart where feelings are soul deep'.
