Marina and the Diamonds – Hollywood Lyrics 11 years ago
I don't know what it actually is, but it really doesn't sound like "because I don't wanna end up living with the fun". Or "girl called Ania". Anyway, it is an awesome song and I hope she actually does get big this year.

Stevie Nicks – Edge of Seventeen Lyrics 11 years ago
It just reminds me of School of Rock. Which is in no way a bad thing.

Florence + the Machine – Drumming Song Lyrics 12 years ago
Just watched the video for this... Florence is like some kind of epic unstoppable wafty force, and this is such a perfect perfect song.

Micachu – Golden Phone Lyrics 12 years ago
This is such a CUTE song. I can't think of another word to describe it, sad as that sounds. I didn't know the lyrics until I looked on here and the don't make much sense to me but it is a CRACKING tune.

The XX – Crystalised Lyrics 12 years ago
This song is really easy to ignore, but you listen to it carefully once and you're hooked again again. It gets better every time. Or it did for me.

Marvin Gaye – Sexual Healing Lyrics 12 years ago
Hot Chip's cover of this is very nice. Smooth, and more like a lullaby than the original.

Florence + the Machine – Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up) Lyrics 12 years ago
She is a really magnificent artist. Whenever this song springs up on me, I actually have to dance, which is exactly how I felt when I started hearing Dog Days. What is this magic spells she weaves? I think it's the harp.
Plus there's the King Midas references in there, which I enjoy.

La Roux – Tigerlily - Full Lyrics 12 years ago
Aw daym I know I've read the full one now. Think I'll remove this version then if yours are updated. I triiiied! haha.

La Roux – Cover My Eyes Lyrics 12 years ago
Heard a thrity-second clip of this on Popjustice. Actually blew me away. It is pure auditory beauty.

Florence + the Machine – Galaxy of the Lost Lyrics 12 years ago
I thought it was "Girl, slo-ow down". Hmm. It sounds like either I suppose, then again I don't think I've heard the album version.

Florence + the Machine – Hospital Beds (Cold War Kids cover) Lyrics 12 years ago
As if no-one has commented! This song is completely beautiful, Florence's voice doesn't seem incapable of anything and I think the way she uses it tells its own story in each of her songs.

Marmaduke Duke – Rubber lover Lyrics 12 years ago
This song reminds me of revision, but actually in a GOOD way! Well done for that alone, I say! But with regards to what on earth it's about, I have no clue.

We Have Band – You Came Out Lyrics 12 years ago
I really like her accent.

La Roux – I'm Not Your Toy Lyrics 12 years ago
Your love hides in a smoky night,
I can never find the truth

Really wasn't sure about these lines, just had an educated guess. Heart this song much!

Lady GaGa – Brown Eyes Lyrics 12 years ago
This reminds me of Skins now. Good times.

La Roux – Bulletproof Lyrics 12 years ago
This is such a bitch-fight-back song. Love it.

La Roux – Quicksand Lyrics 12 years ago
It's "walking around rent free", according to the official website.

La Roux – In For the Kill Lyrics 12 years ago
OMG YOU HAVE THE ALBUM?!?! How? It hasn't been released? Where did you get it from!!!

Tilly and the Wall – Alligator Skin Lyrics 12 years ago
I always listen to this whilst doing my homework. Trash piling = all the crap I've not done and need to get through. Doubt it's the original meaning, but it works for me. And it's so great to tap dance to!

Peter Bjorn and John – Nothing to Worry About Lyrics 12 years ago
I'm sure I heard the crowd chanting the chorus at a football match on telly sometime. I thought it was quite cool.

La Roux – Fascination Lyrics 12 years ago
I think maybe it's "where has OUR conversation gone?"

La Roux – Quicksand Lyrics 12 years ago
Yeah but do you think maybe they wanted it to be referenced as "her", since she is not only the frontwoman but the only one feaured on artwork and videos and onstange? Ben Langmaid seems to take a backseat when it comes to promo.

La Roux – In For the Kill Lyrics 12 years ago
kk point taken.

La Roux – Reflections are Protection Lyrics 12 years ago
I listened again a couple of times and realised this, oops. I'm not sure how one goes about changing lyrics once they're up. It would be fun if she were, though.

Passion Pit – Sleepyhead Lyrics 12 years ago
Ah, I didn't like this song much until I heard it on Skins, and it seems really dreamlike and surreal but reachable too. I don't know what it's about, it just feels good.

Passion Pit – Better Things Lyrics 12 years ago
This song makes me so happy, not by imagining what it means, or thinking of associated memories or who its by.
The sound of it just brings me to smiling.

The Ting Tings – Keep Your Head Lyrics 12 years ago
I think that when you're under twenty-one, songs that mention certain ages/age-groups feel like they're written about you, even when they apparently weren't written at all.
I like this song.
"Fourteen, intimidated, and she's just fourteen"

Tilly and the Wall – Pot Kettle Black Lyrics 12 years ago
Woah. This is not the Tilly and the Wall I know and love.

Nay, it's even sexier and juicier. Different in a very good and healthy and exciting way.
Reminds me of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs a lot, too.

Noisettes – Wild Young Hearts Lyrics 12 years ago
OMG! No-one's commented!!
This is one of my favourite songs ever. I love the way the calm but kind of irritated tone of the verse just breaks into a big chorus with "I'm not what I was last summer". It made me feel like my life is different now, even though it's not about me. I feel like I'm in a film, nay, a musical when I listen to this - it's immensely exhilarating!!
Love. It.

The King Blues – Save the world, Get the girl Lyrics 12 years ago
Makes me think of summer.
Which is actually really great right now.
Gives you something to hope for.

La Roux – In For the Kill Lyrics 12 years ago
I had no idea what some of the lyrics were.
But I thought they ought to be up for commenting, so i pasted over some of the cracks haha.
I L.O.V.E this song.
Her video is immensely sexy. I want that jacket. And hair.

Those Dancing Days – Those Dancing Days Lyrics 12 years ago
I listened to this for the first time walking through the snow the other day, and in an instant summer and winter were melded into one.
I have never felt so happy!!

La Roux – Quicksand Lyrics 12 years ago
I can now see what some people mean by "it's an electro version of 'when doves cry'". But disagree on the grounds that it's much more full-on and emotional. Plus more refined and golden. Not that Prince isn't a fucking legend.

Fight Like Apes – Battlestations Lyrics 12 years ago
Ooh nice. I like the bassy synth at the beginning. At first I thought, "Oh no, FLA are trying to do a serious song? They can't!!"

And then we get to the end:
"I don't feel like playing this song again..."

And MayKay's in hysterics!! Woo! Now THAT's what I call Fight Like Apes. Much better.
No idea what it's about other than an ex-boyfriend, maybe, trying to win her over with his musical abilities? Anyway, v good song.

Crystal Castles – She Fell Out Lyrics 12 years ago
I love this (song? hardly) so much!! It just feels so tragic and sad... I suppose with so few words in the lyric it could be interpreted in many ways, but for me I conjure up the classic stereotypical "I-got-into-drugs/alcohol/high-getter of choice-and-it-was-a-bad-thing" kind of story, with some nice girl living life quite a bit more than she used to and now she's slightly more worse for the wear physically, but inside only she knows how bad and rotted she is. She'll never be as whole as the girl she used to be.

She fell out of love with herself.

Crystal Castles – Mother Knows Best (Take 1) Lyrics 12 years ago
"She's my bloody (fon-lic, it sounds like, but that's not a word) lover"

I definitely hear "lover" in the last word, and four-leaf clover just seems a bit... odd, after the rest of the song.

La Roux – Quicksand Lyrics 12 years ago
This song is an illuminous piece of music. It makes me feel like I want to drink it, and I'm sure it's
the best song that I have ever heard, in my opinion. I read about La Roux in loads of newspapers, magazines, internet... but didn't pay much attention to all this raving on and then just like that I looked her up on Myspace and I was simply amazed at how perfect this song is. It's purely... good, I suppose.

And as for the lyrics, I'm not exactly sure. It seems to be about having an affair with someone(a woman, I gather from the video, and a pretty seductive one, at that) who is with somebody else but seems to really want her anyway "you seem to have forgotten about your man". So she's confused as to what everything means, I think. Well that's what the lyrics are like on reading, but then with this song you have to pay attention to the beat and the chords, which seems to change the meaning and it sounds like being at the center of an exotic, beautiful and intensely sexual relationship which is a weirdly wonderful amalgam of pain, wonder and highness.

Florence + the Machine – Girl with One Eye Lyrics 12 years ago
No, Pull In Emergency are a relatively new indie(ish) underage band and I've seen quite a few reviews mentioning their "Florence and the Machine cover".
But I'm not sure if it really was hers to begin with, just because it sounds quite different from her other stuff.

I think it's a great song though, and my favourite bit is when the backing vocals kick in with "cryyyy-yyy-y". It gives me shivers every time. I wonder if it's based on a story of an artist or a folk tale or something, cause it really is a beautifully sad story.

Crystal Castles – Lovers Who Uncover (Little Ones Remix) Lyrics 12 years ago
Isn't it
"in an affort to uncover what has happened to the salad days"?
Listen again. Silent makes sense, but it doesn't sound like it.

Crystal Castles – Alice Practice Lyrics 12 years ago
I agree with DannyZero, the best thing about this song is teaming it with that scene in Skinsand it's the reason got into Crystal Castles in the firt place, cause that was extremely touching.

But even though the song is actually about nothing, it's amazing how many different people have diverse views about it.
Which makes it great because, I, for instance, can imagine it's about my self-harm, and nobody can tell me my interpretation is wrong because, proven, it means nothing. Technically.

Florence + the Machine – Dog Days Are Over Lyrics 12 years ago
I'm soooo disappointed!
This was released today, and I can't find it in any high street music stores! Well bummed!

This sing is so amazing, it makes me feel like life's a party! So yeah, like Lucy_In_The_Sky said, let's dance!!!!

Kings of Leon – Use Somebody Lyrics 12 years ago
I never thought about it as being on tour and feeling lonely or anything like that.
When I hear it, I think of what a brilliant soundtrack to some kind of epic fantasy movie about a couple of teenagers. I can just imagine two people running through a dark forest on a film trailer when I here the 'woah-oh-oh' bit. Maybe that's just me.

I just feel like it fits that kind of scenario. It should have been the 'Twilight' soundtrack maybe. Anyway, I think it's great. It makes me feel like I'm not the only lonely person wishing life away for love.

Lisa Mitchell – Neopolitan Dreams Lyrics 12 years ago
It's on her new EP, I think, but I'm not sure how available that is.

Lisa Mitchell – Neopolitan Dreams Lyrics 12 years ago
So beautiful!
It reminds of when I first heard it; watching the moon whilst driving through town. Which was also really pretty. Every time I hear it, I just can't help feeling happy. It makes me feel innocent and and like life's a big adventure. (I do think the 'ba-da' bit sounds a bit 'never mind'-ish too).
The video's really sweet too. I can never quite make out what's going on in the polaroid, though. Apart from a man.

Chairlift – Bruises Lyrics 12 years ago
Why can't the lyric just be about doing real handstands?

I imagine just a little girl in a playground doing handstands to win the attention of a boy. When he starts singing, it's like it's when they're older, and together, and he's only just realising all the times she wanted him to notice her, and now that he realises this, he appreciates her more and does more nice things for the girl.

Too innocent? Maybe. But so is the song.

Sigur Rós – Hoppípolla (English) Lyrics 12 years ago
This song is my favourite for the year, i reckon, but is somewhat soiled by the BBC ads.
Now when I hear it all I can see in my mind is a hot air balloon going over the British countryside.

Crystal Castles – Crimewave Lyrics 12 years ago
when I listen, it sounds like 'I want your eyelids... Iwant your dress..." Or something like that, though the posted lyrics are probbly correct. But if you think of it that way, coupled with the slightly whismical and minor-key beats, it sounds like it's about feeling like desire for something is right, but others look at you in sadness, because your desire's leading you into a sticky mess. Am I reading too deep?

Fight Like Apes – Jake Summers Lyrics 12 years ago
Absolutley LOVE this song. I'm not sure what it's meant to be about, but I definitley think they've re-invented the typical love song, and wonderfully. I'm not sure if all the lyrics are correct, but if they are then I especially love
'You're like Kentucky Fried Chicken, but without the taste', and
'You know, he smiles like ham, and he tastes like bile!'
Classic lines.

Fight Like Apes – Lend Me Your Face Lyrics 12 years ago
Aah! Wow! Went to see Fight Like Apes supporting The Ting Tings on Saturday and this and Jake Summers were the best songs, it was soooo good. Let's put it like this: I am in LOVE with The Ting Tings and yet I went out of the gig with this in my head...

Oh, and she (vocalist) is a really good performer, she successfully manages to incorporate her hair into their act.

Sam Isaac – Sideways Lyrics 12 years ago
Aaw, beautiful, beautiful song. Makes me think of the life I'd never want to have - one you're unhappy in, but can't escape from.
