Butthole Surfers – Goofy's Concern Lyrics 9 days ago
@[Alieno:29177] I disagree about the "sexual obsession". I like to see this sort of raw-butthole-romance beneath it all.

Roxy Music – For Your Pleasure Lyrics 1 month ago
It looks like some sort of poetic way for the band to take leave from the listener, as being this the last song on the album.

An ending with a last present attached to it, a sort of philosophical message that would help us getting more relieved when it comes to dealing with today's problems: "In the morning -- Things you worried about last night -- Will seem lighter".

No real clue, just shooting in the dark.

Hüsker Dü – I'll Never Forget You Lyrics 2 months ago
@[PinkFloydrulez:28579] I personally don't see Dü music in general, "teen music". Yes, it is punk-rock, but God this is song is pure genuine rage, it is so catartic, you can take profit of it well beyond your 20s too.

A Perfect Circle – Get the Lead Out Lyrics 3 months ago
"Get the lead out" is a way of saying: Hurry up!

The whole song is clearly about time and (to me) how society is driving us to making a bad use of it: rushing for everything.

"Ain't got time for that"

"No time to cuddle you"

I believe Billy here is trying to make us stop and think about slowing down a bit. There is always no damn time.

PS Do you observe people swiping down their Facebook wall sometimes in the train or metro? God they go fast: do they really read something? XD

The White Stripes – Apple Blossom Lyrics 4 months ago
I don't believe this is a ROMANTIC song as some here say.

I see it more of an ironic view on some fairly common relationships' "topos", where you have the moaning little girl who is taken care of by the man who (needs to) sort the problems for her.

The irony shows up clearly in the very final verses.

I see it as actually (hopefully!) a critic by Jack White to this "legacy" man/woman stereotype, which is (hopefully!) moving on towards some more egalitarian balance (mostly somewhere near the Scandinavian peninsula, not much anywhere else :D )

Featured in "The Hateful Eight" 8th Tarantino's movie: stunning effect on the scene, check it out !

The God Machine – She Said Lyrics 1 year ago
"Happiness is a choice"?

It seems like this girl is complaining because she got chewed up and spit out, used by the narrator in a recent relationship.

He replies it's not his fault, because he never asked her for anything.
He's telling her to try to just be happy, it's up to her if she wants to bleed for this unsatisfactory not fully-corresponded relationship or to just move on.

Swans – Reeling the Liars In Lyrics 1 year ago
From a 2012 interview with Gira [1]:

Q: One song I particularly enjoyed in its demo version was "Reeling the Liars In." Can you tell me about the vivid imagery in that song, or what inspired it?

A: [Laughs] I think that was written at the tail end of the infamous Bush era and I started with him in mind in particular. [I was] thinking about having to burn him and his cohorts in a pile. I was simultaneously reading a book about the Third Reich and that imagery came to mind. I also inverted that imagery on the narrator as well, since he is also subject to scrutiny.

Dead Can Dance – Advent Lyrics 1 year ago
I imagine a couple in bed at night, before going to sleep, (s)he is thinking about how badly things are becoming for them.

Self-renovation of their lives together and the celebration of their love has completely got forgotten through the years, and is now irreparably left behind, replaced by storms (of s**t :D).

Eventually, (s)he just tries to wash away all these bad feelings inside, and tries to put some hope in the fresh new energy that a new day can give to you ("dawn will easy our troubled minds"), so just says to the partner to turn on his/her side now, time to sleep.

"Dream of days to come" sounds like: dreams of nice days of love together we might have, but it leaves some bitter flavour in my mouth, like that there is no hope that those dreams could become true never anymore. They've gone through too many storms (of s**t), it's hard to heal that.

The Breeders – Huffer Lyrics 1 year ago
@[thorneyT:21882] From my point of view this is a more literal complaining about working HARD, the physical toll of it.
No ties with sentimental relationships here, but just the toils of her life (constant touring, recording, whatsoever).

Kim left the Pixies when "went from just all fun to work" [1], so it makes sense to me that Kim ended up writing such a song (though not talking about her Pixies time of course!).

I think she's just exhausted from her life style, she wants it bad though, so she must steal the fuel from her body!

The Birthday Party – Big-Jesus-Trash-Can Lyrics 1 year ago
I read in the Bad Seed biography book (by Ian Johnston) this song is about Elvis Presley, like a delirious warped vision of a drunk Elvis ... "Wears a suit of Gold (got greasy hair), but God gave me sex appeal".

As far as I remember, Nick was heavily interested in the figure of Elvis.
