Pinback – Seville Lyrics 9 years ago
That's basic history. If I were "smart," I'd be able to interpret the song correctly...and it's eating away at me that I cannot.

Pinback – Seville Lyrics 9 years ago
Ugh. You need a new history book :) "Seville was the port from which Columbus and the Spanish conquistadors set off for the New World" over 500 years ago. Columbus is supposedly buried in a tomb in Seville's Santa Maria Cathedral, which I visited in 2001. (However, there is controversy now that his actual remains are in the Dominican Republic.) Not sure about the song and why this young girl would ask God to be "so brave." Perhaps the song is about an affront on Christianity, but who knows...

Incubus – Here In My Room Lyrics 9 years ago
Pink is simply a girly color. It's the first color we wrap our daughters in at birth at the hospital. It symbolizes innocense and beauty.

Bobby McFerrin – Don't Worry, Be Happy Lyrics 9 years ago
I love this song even though I probably shouldn't because it's so darn catchy and simple. But it always makes me smile. It reminds me that life is a barrell of fish (Dang, I can't spell barrell:). Sometimes you pull out a nice long tasty one and at other times you pull out a dying, scrawny, smelly one. But it's always different (always a gamble), and that is what makes life so good. On a down day you know there'll be an up one on the horizon. On an up one you know that you won't get bored with the staleness of no challenge because tomorrow you may get hit by a Mac truck carrying a load of smelt. 'Don't Worry Be Happy' is my new motto. Just go whichever way the river takes you on no particular day and stop sweating the small sh*t (and fish:).

Cat Power – Good Woman Lyrics 9 years ago
Creative artist. Haven't heard enough of her music, though. This song was interpreted well by AmandaM. I suppose people cheat for numerous reasons, but I think they like to believe the reasons are external rather than a glimpse into their own unhappiness, which has little to do with their partner. I, thankfully, have been blessed to never been in a relationship with a man who has cheated on me, but I've had friends who have felt the pain from a break of trust.

Nick Gilder – Hot Child In The City Lyrics 9 years ago
Good song. And except for high priced call girls, women/girls do not consciously choose to be prostitutes. No emotionally healthy young girl's dream is to grow up to be a prostitute (and who is usually on drugs to dull the pain of the "job"). In the 80's at least, the stats on the number of prostitutes who had been previously sexually molested by dads; uncles; grandfathers; family friends; and mothers' boyfriends was staggering. Prostitution is first an escape. Then it becomes a lifeline due to drug/alcohol addictions and the lack of a good support system on which to return. Without education and job skills (and with an addicition) getting out of the business is nearly impossible. Sorry, but this topic is near and dear to my heart...

Corey Crowder – Learning To Let Go Lyrics 9 years ago
It means let it go. It was fated to end and thus should end. It's a long emotional process, but over time you eventually reach the other side...

Nina Simone – Brown Baby Lyrics 9 years ago
Love this song. A much needed song especially decades ago. Here's to February and Black History Month. King's "dream" is on-going. And hopefully community leaders (including church leaders) will help to push education while downplaying early pregnancy. Our brown babies deserve the very best chance in life.

Nina Simone – I Shall Be Released Lyrics 9 years ago
I agree with the other poster. It's a song about freedom of some kind. It's rather nice, and perfect for Nina's voice.

Nina Simone – Another Spring Lyrics 9 years ago
It's a beautiful song, and I always come back to it because it makes me think of all the smiles and talks I shared with a group of elderly residents. They were God's gift to me for two years, and I shall forever be thankful for the stories they told; the wisdom they shared; and the glorious laughter...

Tom Jones – Black Betty Lyrics 9 years ago
But&Memo have the best rendition (other than the original), but I can't get this site to add 'em. It's a fun song regardless. She's a wild one and she gets him high. Don't need many lines with the energy of this great track. It's one of my all-time favorites.

I don't believe the song has anything to do with love and never has, but it's a good song and the band is obviously talented.

Augustana – Boston Lyrics 9 years ago
Getting a chance to start over (to begin again) is awesome. Make the most of it: close the door to the past; don't look back; and trust that you'll make better choices in the future....while forgiving yourself for any bad choices you may have made. Toss in new friends; dating; great music; good dance clubs and books and you'll be on your way. All the best to you. My new life begins again very soon and I, too, think it will be "awesome".

The Cure – In Between Days Lyrics 9 years ago
LOL. Ya really think it's about a "love triangle." Seems like two points on a single line. Great song! It's been big in Brazil this past week; I think it should remain a top song for many years to come.

of Montreal – We Will Commit Wolf Murder Lyrics 9 years ago
Nobody has yet to interpret this song and it consists of such powerful lyrics. I am not the one to interpret it because I don't have the brain power to do so, but someone PLEASE attempt it. It's obvously about someone in pain (suffering) and who feels powerless and lost. Thankfully those are temporary feelings and/or the sufferer has a distorted view of him/herself and his life due to circumstancesa out of his control. Temporary and Distorted...that's what it's really about, I believe.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Little Wing Lyrics 9 years ago
"My opinion is that this song can be about a free-spirited woman that wants to share her love with more than one man (beautiful idea)." If you actually think THAT is beautiful (or that's it's "love") than perhaps that explains your Broken Dick.

Arctic Monkeys – Crying Lightning Lyrics 9 years ago
Everything is about some people; they can't see past their own wants and needs. And what they think is a game may just be someone picking up that one business card; phone number; email and agreeing to a date, or at least an evening of fun at a club. And isn't that how new lives are begun and doors are closed on the past. Creative song, but some wear it like a warm coat, only that coat may have lots of holes in it.

Crash Test Dummies – Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm Lyrics 9 years ago
I agree with everything you said. Growing up after age 10 I thought my childhood was the worst, but you always meet someone(s) who had it much worse. It doesn't make it any easier, though. I like how the song is written: creative, yet thought provoking.

Aerosmith – Janie's Got A Gun Lyrics 9 years ago
I agree about the content of the song. Rape changes people, especially children. Due to a court order decades ago, I once had to help send an 18 month old baby back to the home where he had been abused by the mother's boyfriend. Within a few weeks the baby was back in our shelter after having been molested/raped by his maternal grandparents (both of them). I don't condone killing, but life in prison would be appropriate. I often wonder, though, what creates a rapist. At one stage in his/her life he was an innocent, precious child. Someone wrote on his/her slate to help create the monster within him. It's very sad.

Tommy Makem – Red Is the Rose Lyrics 9 years ago
Oh no. No comments? This is one of the most beautiful songs (lyrics and vocals). Both Liam and his musical partner (Liam Clancy) are now deceased. Their legacy is very special and this duet is incredible. It's obviously a love song and it's one of my personal favorites.

Sigur Rós – Svefn-G-Englar Lyrics 9 years ago
It is a wonderful song. Any song that causes the listener to have heightened senses especially when the song is not written/sung in his/her native language speaks to the quality of the song. I could listen to this track all day every day. GOOD band!

Foster the People – Pumped Up Kicks Lyrics 9 years ago
I wonder when this song will not be listed as first on the cover of the Songmeanings page. As long as it graces the front page, listeners will check it out and possibly comment. I LOVE the sound of this song (very creative), but lyrically speaking it's not the most intense song. It's been interpreted to death and there appears to be a consensus so I'll refrain.

I was with you until you said it's a song about two people ending a relationship. I think it's a great CHEER UP song, especially for the dreary month of January when it's often cold and/or snowy across the country.

Ah, gotta watch those "religious types." They'll do us in every time:) On a more sarcastic note, Kanye West couldn't take Swift's heart. He could steal her thunder and attempt to take her award, but she alone possesses her heart;) ...can you tell I really really really dislike West as an artist:)

John Mayer – Half of My Heart (feat. Taylor Swift) Lyrics 9 years ago
Beautifully said. Kudos. So lengthy, though, that I have neglected my duties around the house ;) Thumbs up to you. So glad you are open to believing that you are indeed special and worthy. Sometimes it takes another to see in ourselves that which we cannot. And hopefully over time that leads to trusting others. I am the opposite...too trusting. There's a happy medium, I suspect. Good song!

Radiohead – House of Cards Lyrics 9 years ago
Fallible humans were not intended to be with one person 24/7 or they would begin to seriously hate the other person's faults. Everyone needs a little break from each other and the world...time to de-stress. Once they've regrouped, they make better partners. People with young children also give cause to the two house arrangement. Anyway, we are so off topic...

Radiohead – House of Cards Lyrics 9 years ago
No matter what anyone says (including a feminist), the woman ends up doing the majority of menial chores. The man ends up enjoying watching her do them. Maybe it doesn't start that way, but in most cases of those I know it ends that way. Why would any woman wish to work hard all day outside of the home and spend the evening being maid and servant? Why not share nights together at his place and hers (alternating) and when one or the other is pissy, there's always a secondary house for both. Sounds like a plan.

Radiohead – House of Cards Lyrics 9 years ago
I call it realism. Why anyone would want two of anything is beyond me. I would be exhausted trying to please two people (not including myself) while going through the motions of everyday living. Heck, one living in a seperate house is what I call harmony:)

The Circle Jerks – I Just Want Some Skank Lyrics 9 years ago
Going out on a limb here, but "skank" in the title is the same word we used in the 70's to describe a whorish woman, is it not? Surprised nobody has commented on a CJ's track. The song is about drinking and drugging and perhaps sleeping around to feel better?
