Jana Hunter – Christmas Lyrics 10 years ago
This is one of my favorite songs. Hunter's voice and the simple instrumentation haunt me for days after listening to it. The lyrics are mournful, mysterious, meditative and sly, not ever completely revealing their meaning or level of seriousness. Some people may get a very concrete meaning out of the song, but I prefer to leave it as open-ended and ambiguous as possible.

The Fiery Furnaces – Leaky Tunnel Lyrics 10 years ago
I don't have a single, definitive meaning for this song (which I don't think Fiery Furnance songs usually have), but I've always gotten a clanking, pre-apocalyptic feel from a rising surge of negative energy, a gathering black cloud that threatens worse than rain. I dunno, it just exemplifies that panicky, and strangely apathetic feeling that one gets when things start slowly chugging towards disaster.
