Frida Hyvönen – Once I Was A Serene Teenaged Child Lyrics 14 years ago
i think it's about how sex changes you. and disappoints, in a way.
like this song so much. it's pretty close, in its meaning, to 'sex changes' by dresden dolls. dd's song rocks harder, though.

Macy Gray – Still Lyrics 14 years ago
I don't think you have to take this song literally - as about a relationship where there is violence involved. I guess, when you're sick of being lonely you stick to every little bit of love you get and even if the person you're with doesn't treat you right you're justifying him/her because you're too scared of being all alone again. sad but true...

Annie – Heartbeat Lyrics 14 years ago
this song is so sweet. it's all about the joy of spending time with somebody you're falling in love with.

The Knife – You Make Me Like Charity Lyrics 14 years ago
I'm not really sure whether this song is about war. What I know is when I hear the words 'you make me like charity instead of paying enough taxes' I think that it's exactly how my ex is treating me since we've broken up. And it's sad because we both love The Knife so much.

Billie Holiday – I'll Be Seeing You Lyrics 15 years ago
i think it's about when you broke up with somebody and some time have already past and you start thinking about this person and remember only the good things. because only the good things are worth remembering.

The National – Sugar Wife Lyrics 15 years ago
How come there are no comments?? This song is so so so sexy!

The Smiths – I Started Something I Couldn't Finish Lyrics 15 years ago
i think it's about a guy (well... moz probably...) who is attracted to some other guy, he attempts to seduce him but the guy appears to be straight. maybe moz usually fell for straight guys and that's why there's the 'typical me...' line. and maybe 18 months was at the time a punishment for such... 'indecent' behaviour... i dunno. i'm only guessing, but the song is perfect.

Bright Eyes – Lover I Don't Have to Love Lyrics 15 years ago
this song is so wicked!

Nouvelle Vague – In a Manner of Speaking Lyrics 15 years ago
i think she's in love with that guy but he doesn't really care for her, he tells her he loves her but he does not really mean it and she knows it but she still wants to hear it from him because it lets her live in some kind of fantasy... or maybe it's just me? maybe everyone is truly-madly-deeply in love and i'm just the pessimistic one... well, whatever!

The Beatles – When I'm Sixty-Four Lyrics 15 years ago
Exactly! Happy Birthday Paul!!
I was born 13 years after the Beatles split up but I will always need their music. And I'll make sure my future children love them as much as I do.

Morrissey – Dear God, Please Help Me Lyrics 15 years ago
I love Moz. I really do. And each time I discover some new songs I am, you know, ready for whatever, but this particular song makes me confused... the explosive kegs between his legs and the whole spreading the legs thing... I really wish this song was (somehow) about his love for Rome...
... but still, whatever, Moz rules!

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds – God Is in the House Lyrics 15 years ago
Lovely?? This song is anything but lovely! The music is beautiful (well, od course, it's Cave) but the lyrics... the lyrics! People in this 'very pretty town' are so intimidated by the 'God' that they hardly breathe... it reminds me of some kind of sect or... communism... can't see anything lovely about it, but still - it's such a good song.

The Long Blondes – Giddy Stratospheres Lyrics 15 years ago
this song is so awsome! how come nobody commented on it yet???
this guy is in a dead-boring relationship but he probably got used to it and is (maybe) scared to leave his girlfriend as everyone tells him to do

she will never take you higher than her attic room
she'll never take you to giddy stratospheres

such great lines!

The Beatles – Across the Universe Lyrics 15 years ago
'Nothing’s gonna change my world'

This is my mantra.

The Beatles – For No One Lyrics 15 years ago
so beautiful...
so sad...
so true... 'a love that should have lasted years'
again, so mcca!
love it!

The Beatles – Good Night Lyrics 15 years ago
i love the fact this song closes the white album.
the album takes you for such an incredible trip, it truly blows your mind off and then there's this sweet little song, a lullaby, like saying: 'thank you ladies and gentlemen, have a good night'... like anyone could sleep after listening to the album! ;)

The Beatles – I'm So Tired Lyrics 15 years ago
i was just thinking about the line 'i'd give everything i've got for a little peace of mind'... i searched for the lyrics to this song and the version i found was saying that at the very end the words are 'Monsieur, Monsieur, Monsieur how about another one' so for me the meaning of the song is pretty obvious: John couldn't sleep so he decided to get drunk... well... i'm so low tonight, i can't stop listening to this song... and since i don't smoke... i wonder should i get up and fix myself a drink...

Depeche Mode – In Your Room Lyrics 15 years ago
Incredible song! Just heard it for the first time and i already know that it's gonna tak a long, long time to get over it... guess i'm becoming addicted to DM...

Depeche Mode – Behind the Wheel Lyrics 15 years ago
i don't think it's about a female domination... i think he's feeling very weak and hopeless and he asks her to help him, to 'take the wheel' in his moment of weakness...

...but it's actually my very first day of discovering DM and i might be wrong :)

Bruce Springsteen – I'm on Fire Lyrics 15 years ago
this is the sexiest song ever written
he wants the girl so much it hurts and you can really feel it listening to the song! it's dark and very straightforward

and he definitely sings 'through the middle of my skull'

Paula Cole – Feelin' Love Lyrics 15 years ago
this song makes me feel like a candy apple, damn sure!
... delicious ;)

R.E.M. – Nightswimming Lyrics 15 years ago
oh yeah, i forgot to mention that it always makes me cry...

R.E.M. – Nightswimming Lyrics 15 years ago
such a great song!
i always imagined that it's about a guy who comes back to his hometown after a long period of absence and he starts reminding himself some scenes from childhood; you know, how life was great then, everything was simple and everyone was... uhm, yeah - innocent. something like that. so, i quite agree with jc499.
but actually, whatever it's really about, it's so beautiful, peaceful and always makes me so sad... it's makes me feel old!

The Beatles – She's Leaving Home Lyrics 15 years ago
When I was a teenager and most of my thoughts concentrated on when I finally leave home and start living on my own this song helped me through some bad times.
I don't think about is as a suicide song. I don't think McCa would write a suicidal song ;) For me - it's about a girl who's so frustrated about living with her parents that she finally decides to leave. She leaves them a letter, takes some of her stuff and quietly sneaks out one morning. She buys some cheap car and off she goes. It's a generation-gap song, about a girl who is misunderstood by her parents.
So beautiful, so true, so Paul, indeed. Forever one of my favourites.

Thom Yorke – And It Rained All Night Lyrics 15 years ago
just heard it for the very first time and i know i'm gonna listen to it over and over again.
whole album just blows my mind. it's amazing how yorke's music developes throughout the years... he's a genious, no doubt about it.

David Gray – This Year's Love Lyrics 15 years ago
this is what i tell myself every time: This years love had better last, heaven knows it's high time... and then again and again... :'(

James Blunt – You're Beautiful Lyrics 15 years ago
i heard that they banned this song in one radio station because people were so sick and tired of it. and i don't blame them! this song was ok when i heard it for the first time... but after months of constant hearing it EVERYWHERE it really makes me sick!! and his voice is SO annoying!

The Cranberries – Joe Lyrics 15 years ago
this is my favourite cranberries song. it's so beautiful.
i always thought that it's about a boy she maybe fell in love with one summer and she promised him she'll be back next year or something like that... but the grandfather idea also makes some sense,

The Beatles – Strawberry Fields Forever Lyrics 15 years ago
this is the greatest song ever. this is why beatles are and always will be my all time no. 1. this is magic. it's the tune that wakes me up every morning :)

Take That – The Day After Tomorrow Lyrics 15 years ago
it's about when you are in a relationship with someone who really loves you but you cheated on them and now you have to confess and it's killing you because you know how much they're gonna be hurt... always liked this song and still feel v. personal about it. i like that mark owen sings it, he's got v. interesting voice

Placebo – Scared Of Girls Lyrics 15 years ago
yeah, the line about the younger sister is strangely exciting ;)

New Kids on the Block – Please Don't Go Girl Lyrics 15 years ago
it's hard to admit it, but yes - NKOTB were my no.1 back in the days... i had all their records (still have), knew all their songs by heart, i kissed their poster goodnight and i cried when they disbanded ;)
of course this music is... well... CRAP... but this is where is was when i was a kid and i gues it didn't ruin my future musical taste ;) and definitely - when i'm really (I mean REALLY) low, i take my NKOTB tapes which are hidden deep in my closet and this crappy music brings back the good memories of when life was soooo easy... and now, everyone knows that

Death Cab for Cutie – A Lack of Color Lyrics 15 years ago
so peaceful, soft, simple... b e a u t i f u l!

Lovage – Strangers On A Train Lyrics 15 years ago
this song always kinda reminds me of erica jong's book 'fear of flying' and her fantasies about trains...

really like to ride the train
especially when i forget where i'm going
i really like the way it feels
the motion of the wheels

yep, there's nothing like a good old train :)

The Smiths – Shoplifters of the World Unite Lyrics 15 years ago
My only weakness is... well, never mind!

Love this line! Moz is amongst my major weekness'

The Smiths – Reel Around the Fountain Lyrics 15 years ago
it's about a boy losing his innocence, but not in a 'child abuse' way. 'fifteen minutes with you well, I wouldn't say no' - he definitely likes it! it's Moz's encounter with another charming man

Gwen Stefani – Luxurious Lyrics 15 years ago
for me this song is about people who worked hard to make their relationship stronger and now the're living a great life together

Radiohead – Everything in Its Right Place Lyrics 15 years ago
when it comes to this song... everything's in it's right place :) love it and when i heard it opening vanilla sky i knew i'm gonna like the movie too. this is my chill-out song, when i need to calm down and put myself together... works every time!

Sandi Thom – I Wish I Was A Punk Rocker (With Flowers In My Hair) Lyrics 15 years ago
i wish i was a punk rocker with flowers in my hair!

just heard it on the radio... what a great song!
So I'm not the only one who was born too late?!? very comforting :)

Ryan Adams – Come Pick Me Up Lyrics 15 years ago
come pick me up
take me out
fuck me up
steal my records
screw all my friends
they're all full of shit
with a smile on your face
and then do it again
i wish you would

hmm... so great. so fucked up.
when i listen to this song i always wonder whether there will ever be a person i want so bad i let him 'steal my records'... well, i hope so. that would have to be the really REAL love, right?

Billie Holiday – Gloomy Sunday Lyrics 15 years ago
I'm not surprised that after hearing this song people commited suicide. Isn't it like the saddest song ever? But for me - it's also one of the most beautiful love songs. The one you love has died and you are devastated, there's no hope - the only option you have is to kill yourself so that you can be with him... :'-(

Angels have no thoughts of ever returning you
Wouldn’t they be angry if I thought of joining you?

I heard many versions of it. It's obvious that Billie's version's the best but I also like the one by Heather Nova.

Nina Simone – My Man's Gone Now Lyrics 15 years ago
This song is so real! Always makes me cry.
It's about when you've been with somebody all your life, yo've been loving this person and now he's gone and you cannot get used to being on your own... it's like you feel the life is comming to an end. So sad. So inevitable...
How come there are only few comments on Nina's songs? Don't you love Nina Simone, people???

Nina Simone – I Put A Spell On You Lyrics 15 years ago
And I don't care
if you don't want me
I'm yours right now

This line kicks ass! One of my all-time favourites!

The Cure – Cut Here Lyrics 15 years ago
I miss you, I miss you, I miss you,
I miss you, I miss you, I miss you so much

some time ago a guy i thought i was in love with told me that he's probably leaving to another country, i went home and on the radio this song was playing and i couldn't get rid of this 'i miss you' line in my head for days...
but i realised i'm not in love with the guy, he never moved... i don't really care anymore now and i love the song :)

Radiohead – Subterranean Homesick Alien Lyrics 15 years ago
my favourite rh song ever!
it's about a life most of us live, normal everyday stuff makes you so anaemic, you don't know how to enjoy the little things anymore and about waiting for something exciting to happen that would change your life and make it extraordinary... yep, i know the feeling too well... after listening to this song i always feel the need to move to a countryside or a small town where life is a bit 'slower', where you find time to talk with your friends and neighbors... where you can feel the smell of warm summer air... oh, that's bullshit... i'll never leave the city...

Prince – Purple Rain Lyrics 15 years ago
i agree with calmity too. he's in love with this girl but he doesn't want to ruin her relationship, he just wants to near, be her friend; it's a wanna-see-you-happy-even-if-it's-not-with-me kinda thing

Placebo – Lady Of The Flowers Lyrics 15 years ago
'he spends the afternoon, between your thighs'...
hm... i love this line, love this song!
and yes, it sounds like he was about to cry...

José González – Heartbeats Lyrics 15 years ago
I love this song! It's pure magic!
For me, it's about having one night stand with somebody and then, unexpectedly starting a relationship with this person but this realtionship can last only for short time so you're trying to get the best of it, enjoy the moments you spend together and preserving the great memories.

The Smiths – Asleep Lyrics 15 years ago
what a song! and so terribly sad... Moz always knows exactly what's going on in my head :|
