RJD2 – June Lyrics 11 years ago
Content aside, Copywrite really rips it up here. Lyrically, it's some very compelling tragedy. This instrumental is MASSIVELY underrated in RJD2's catalog. It's very emotional and moving stuff. Good shit RJ.

Atmosphere – Body Pillow Lyrics 11 years ago
In my Atmosphere top 5.

Atmosphere – They're All Gonna Laugh At You Lyrics 11 years ago
Alright, so I recognize it in Lupe Fiasco "Pressure (Feat. Jay-Z)"... But the similarity was overblown in myt head- so scratch that.

Atmosphere – God's Bathroom Floor Lyrics 11 years ago
I like this. Always tried to piece this part together. With what you said, followed by 'touched by a hazy shade of god, help me change' - it adds up.

Atmosphere – They're All Gonna Laugh At You Lyrics 11 years ago
*Correction: Not "You've found force...", but "If I'm forced to watch you touch the torch to that spoon" Great goddamn song! Sounds like an addict (the line mentioned alludes to cookin up some heroin) trying to get his situation turned around, and looking to god for answers.

Also (!!!)... It's been really bothering me- I swear I've heard this beat retooled in a song with Lupe Fiasco or Jay-Z or some shit like that. I can't fucking find it, though. It's a little different, but you can tell the producer copped this track- anyone know?

Atmosphere – The River Lyrics 11 years ago
One of the best songs Slug has ever written, and I love the piano riff. "But every time I hear a river I think a mother is crying" followed by 1:40 of piano just really gets you thinking and brings you into the song even more.

On the one hand, I want to share this with others- but at the same time don't too often, because I'm not sure the average Atmosphere fan today could appreciate it quite as much. If that makes sense...

Atmosphere – God's Bathroom Floor Lyrics 11 years ago
and check the floor god's got nice tiles

Jessica Lea Mayfield – The One That I Love Best Lyrics 11 years ago
Favorite track off her debut. Lovely voice. Nice work Dan Auerbach! Pretty straightforward meaning in my book.

A few edits (my take):
"You're the reason that I'm breathing and alive"
"You can still smell the perfume in your bed"

Heartless Bastards – New Resolution Lyrics 11 years ago
"my new resolution is to be
someone who does not care what anyone thinks of me
'cause I don't even like myself half the time
and what's the use in worrying what's on other people's minds?"

I love this part. Yeah, they are sort of my hidden gem as well... I've tried sharing a bit, but other people just don't understand. They're all fools who are missing out :)

Heartless Bastards – The Mountain Lyrics 11 years ago
I'm going to have to agree this song is about drugs. Want to go higher, take it on down the line, spilt blood on the mountain- sounds like addiction. AWESOME song, AWESOME album- maybe my favorite album as a whole in 2009!

Grizzly Bear – Cheerleader Lyrics 11 years ago
Everyone's flocking to 'Two Weeks', but I'm definitely liking this as the song of the album. Excellent.

Dr. Dre – The Message Lyrics 11 years ago
This song flies under the radar being the last track on this classic. Dre isn't great lyrically, but I love this:

"I'm anxious to believe in real G's don't cry
If that's the truth, then I'm realizin I ain't no gangsta
It's just not me, but you know I'ma always ride wit you
I miss you, sometimes I wish I just died wit you"


John Legend – Heaven Lyrics 12 years ago
The lyric interpretation looks like it was written by a 1st grader.

Anyway, love this song. Couple has a huge fight, and a falling out. Then they try to rekindle the flame. One of my favorite John Legend lines: "Let's hold hands, like the young romance/Let's first kiss, like the moment we first did/Cannn we make love, like way back in the day love"- damn he really belts that last part.

The Black Keys – Meet Me in the City (Junior Kimbrough cover) Lyrics 12 years ago
Nice work Emma. I purchased Chulahoma a month ago, and have not looked back. This is some GREAT stuff. Right up there with Rubber Factory for me.

Atmosphere – God Loves Ugly Lyrics 12 years ago
This is one of the sickest starts to a song ever. "I wear my scars like the rings on a pimp"- the tone, delivery, it's a fucking perfect start to a classic track. The piano line is hypnotic.

Elliott Smith – Say Yes Lyrics 12 years ago
"It's always been wait and see
A happy day and then you pay
And feel like shit the morning after"

I like thinking about this literally. It's like you loved, then lost... then you plan a date with her, but you aren't really sure what it means. So there's that anticipation and build up, wondering if it means something and there's hope that you will reconnect, because you still love her. Then you realize it was just a meeting, like any other two people - friends - nothing more, and your hope is crushed. Alright, so that's more like an autobiography, but that's the image I take from it.

Atmosphere – Little Man Lyrics 12 years ago
I agree with smitty "I can't teach much when it comes to women, I drive safe and slow but don't know nothing 'bout the engine" is a great line.

Also, "The only women that love you are fans and family, Mom has no choice but fans leave you randomly"... damn, what a hearbreaking line.

The Black Keys – Keep Me Lyrics 12 years ago
This is one of my favorite Keys songs - handily top 3. The lyrics are poetic. The riffs between the verses are excellent.

The Black Keys – Act Nice and Gentle (The Kinks cover) Lyrics 12 years ago
This is a fun song.

The Black Keys – Psychotic Girl Lyrics 12 years ago
This song makes me smile. I've been dealing with some CRAZYYY females lately, and hearing him call his a "psychotic girl" just has that effect on me.

The Black Keys – Hold Me in Your Arms Lyrics 12 years ago
I think of myself- and how when I truly like a girl I always want to be with her. I crave that attention, and the physical contact, it makes me feel like a better person.

Another song that Dan just shreds away on guitar. Brilliant!

The Black Keys – Hurt Like Mine Lyrics 12 years ago
The constant dilemma of that girl you want to be with, but who just wants to be friends/be there for you- nothing more.

Dan's guitar killlls on this track!

The Black Keys – All You Ever Wanted Lyrics 12 years ago
Fucking love this song! I definitely relate to all the feelings and imagery. Classic!
