C+C Music Factory – Things That Make You Go Hmm Lyrics 11 years ago
This was a reference to something Arsenio Hall would do on his talk show contemporary to that time. He had a segment every night called "Things that make you go... hmm."

Dio – Holy Diver Lyrics 12 years ago
This song is about Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Chicago – Will You Still Love Me? Lyrics 13 years ago
I love the drama of this song. Makes me want to roll up my cuffs!

sheriff – when i'm with you Lyrics 13 years ago
This is my favorite song to sing in the car when no one's there and I have the windows rolled all the way up. BAYBAYYYAYYYAYYYAYYYY, OOH I GET CHI-ULLS WHEN I'M WITH YOU-O-WHOAH-OHWHOAHOHWOAHOH!

Chicago – You're The Inspiration Lyrics 14 years ago
This song's great on Elite Beat Agents for Nintendo DS.

Dream Theater – March of the Tyrant Lyrics 14 years ago
I suppose this is about the book/movie Dune, since the lyrics make reference to Arrakis/Rakis.

Johnny Gill – Rub You The Right Way Lyrics 14 years ago
"I detect masturbatory overtones" ~Butthead, 'Beavis and Butthead'

Bronski Beat – Hit That Perfect Beat Lyrics 14 years ago
"Hiding from the danger that's been sent from hell"

I've always assumed this is AIDS.

Britney Spears – Toxic Lyrics 14 years ago
I always thought this song was about smoking, which is one of Britney's very unattractive and nasty features. Or perhaps some other drug she might be addicted to.

Love and Rockets – The Dog-End of a Day Gone By Lyrics 14 years ago
I'd like to know what the 'windy' is that the unfriendly drunk is outside of.

I'd always sing the song as "the drunk outside the Wendy's."

C+C Music Factory – Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now) Lyrics 14 years ago
"It's your world and I'm just a squirrel
Trying to get a nut to move your butt"
Is the illest, most dope and def rhyme ever.

Love the use of this in the gay steel mill on that Simpsons episode too. :D

Love and Rockets – No New Tale to Tell Lyrics 14 years ago
You mean that awesome solo in this song? I think it's flute- whatever it is, I love it.

I also love this lyric:
People like to hear their names
I'm no exception
Please call my name

LL Cool J – Mama Said Knock You Out Lyrics 14 years ago
"Anyhow, what's the deal with "Farmers"?"

Farmers Boulevard is a street in Queens and the Farmers are LL's people from that area.

I absolutely LOVED this song when I was a twelve-year old. Even if it is a little over the top, I still get really psyched up when I hear it.

Bruce Springsteen – Born to Run Lyrics 15 years ago
Everyone who lives in NJ wants to get the hell out, or at least those who live in the poorer towns. I'm working on it myself.

But anyway, this is great song with excellent metaphors, especially the velvet rims/engines one. I can see why all the older women around here (NJ) just adore Bruce, with sexy lyrics like those and sweet ones like "Jersey Girl." My mom included.

Ironically I once got in an auto accident while listening to this song.

Pearl Jam – Black Lyrics 15 years ago
I considered this "one of Pearl Jam's lame slow songs" for many years, but then I actually listened to the lyrics. I'm not surprised this song has inspired eight pages of discussion, it's emotional and very powerful and anyone who has lost love (and losing can happen many ways, not only death) can feel the meaning.

Boz Scaggs – Lido Shuffle Lyrics 15 years ago
Being from the Philadelphia area, I can tell you that Lito Sheppard plays cornerback for the Philadelphia Eagles of the NFL. I can also tell you that Chris Berman is an (American) football TV commentator who likes to make humorous pop culture references. For example, Berman sings a little of this song when Lito (oh, whoa-oh-oh) Sheppard is featured on a highlight.

As for this song, it's about a guy with a gambling problem. Which is fitting when applied to Lito Sheppard- he often takes a football risk by trying for interceptions when he could make safer defensive plays!

Genesis – Who Dunnit? Lyrics 15 years ago
I don't know "Who Dunnit" but the whole "We know" repetition would put me in mad fits of laughter as a kid since it sounded like "Wiener! weiner! weiner! weiner! weiner! weiner! weiner! weiner! weiner! weiner!"

Sting – Fortress Around Your Heart Lyrics 15 years ago
I've heard many songs in my life, and these lyrics remain my favorite **ever**. The metaphors that Sting uses here appeal to my love of military history and I can apply the meanings to my own past relationships. I LOVE THIS SONG.

Earth, Wind & Fire – After The Love Has Gone Lyrics 15 years ago
One of my favorite songs. It does not need much in the way of interpretation. It is just a straightforward breakup song.

311 – Down Lyrics 15 years ago
Underrated song. I'm not even really into this kind of music but this song fricking launched a genre. When I hear this on the car stereo I CRANK IT.
