Lorde – Royals Lyrics 7 years ago
Ohh... My... God...

you could not be further from the point. You are as bad as the racist asshole from 6 pages back, or the illuminati guy. Geeze! To start, I am going to say that Lorde is from New Zealand, not australia, which, despite being pretty close geographically, is a differenct country. If you want to get the actual meaning, try reading %85 of the other posts on this site. Most of them have it pretty spot-on, which I can confirm because if the vast majority of people interpret a song the same way, then it is likely that was the intended interpretation.

"I havent studied literature in depth or anything so im not an expert at interpretation"

Don't worry, nobody posting here has or is.

fair opinion. I would ask though, do you dislike the lyrics/message? or jus the music itself? I have always been one who appreciates a song or considers a song good if it has coherent lyrics that make sense and that I can relate to, but I know alot of people in bands who are the opposite, for them a song is only good if it has really good Drumming or long guitar solos that really show off what the musicians (apart from the singer/song writer) are capable of, and lyrics take a back seat. these are the kind of people who like or even prefer instrumental versions. (which is totaly Valid, to each their own).

What... The hell.

When it boils right down, this is just a catch song about being middle class. I really like this song and I gree with allot of the interpretations that have been posted but This is not a Song about Religion and Hating Jews (see Yahwe's posts a couple pages back), it's not about Drug use (vampWforever) and it is DEFINATELY not about the illuminati controlling singers.

Stretch some more next time.

@kinkyDox

I always thought she was saying Queen Bee (as that is a real term) but I like they way your mind works. Queen B (as opposed to Queen A).

someone else mentioned in a reply that "I'm not proud of my address" doesn't mean she is ashamed of where she lives, it just means she doesn't necessarily care.

Many rappers and hip-hop artist sing about Coming from the streets and there is a certain amount of pride, like, I came from the streets with nothing and now I've made it big. Then when they make it big, they sing about being rich and living in hollywood or, like Snoop and Dre, LBC (long Beach, California). Lorde is kind of saying it doesn't matter. She isn't going to use where she grew up as a prop in her songs. She isn't going to take pride in something that was out of her controll (where/how she gre up) because it's not something she accomplished, it's just what happened.

On a Boat, by the Lonely Island DOES NOT belong on that list. That is a goofy/comedy song and the Lonely Island are a group of comedians from Saturday Night Live, not a "real" band, and that song is basically making fun of every other song on that list.

Come on, these are the people who brought us "Dick in a Box"

Nitty Gritty Dirt Band – Fishing In The Dark Lyrics 7 years ago
To me, the lines in the chorus sound like a euphemism for sex

You and me going fishing in the dark,
Lying on our backs and counting the stars
Where the cool grass grows
Down by the river in the full moon light,
We'll be fallin' in love in the middle of the night
Just movin' slow

See? Maybe I just have a dirty mind

The Mountain Goats – For Charles Bronson Lyrics 9 years ago
It is definately about the Actor Charles Bronson. I also think it has to do about him as a person more than ay of the roles he played. Charles Bronson served in world war II where he was wounded and received the purple heart. I havent really looked into this but I think this song is about him struggling, as so many others did after the war, with post traumatic stress. especially since he was playing a tough guy in movies with alot of fighting and shooting, hence all the "never let them see your weak" and "try to hold the gun straight"
