Super Furry Animals – Down a Different River Lyrics 4 years ago
My source is seeing Super Furry Animals play it Saturday for their Fuzzy Logic/ Radiator tour set, frontman Gruff Rhys announced that Radiator was entering a "k Hole" but that as the album progresses "it goes down into a dark slow void" and "don't worry we then get high high high". This suggests this part of the album, from 'BASS Tuned To D/.E.A.D' through to the conclusion of Radiator is about this anecdotal drug experience.

Super Furry Animals – Down a Different River Lyrics 4 years ago
I think it's about someone on cocaine talking too much when the other person (the narrator in the song,) is on most likely ketamine, or just strong cannabis, and he offers his choice of drug to the person on coke so they can be on the same wave length. However this just leads to going 'Down A Different River' albeit a more relaxed one. The second verse is probably about trying to function the next morning, taking until evening to regain normality but still having wholly messed up tangled hair, hardly being able to make out the door.

Tom Waits – Downtown Train Lyrics 18 years ago
Wait's is by far one of the most underrated song writers out there along with Frank Black and Syd Barrett. Another okayish wait's cover is MArtha by Meat Loaf on Welcome To The Neighbourhood I knew it was too good for Meat to write.

Sublime – 54-46 That's My Number/Ball and Chain Lyrics 18 years ago

Pink Floyd – Bike Lyrics 18 years ago
I think Syd was more about creating sounds with his guitar then actual music. But as a song writer his up there with the greats. This song is just a pure joke Syd loved humour and it comes across in this

Pink Floyd – Echoes Lyrics 18 years ago
This song is amazing! I love when the guitar comes back in on part two - just before the verse - with the bison delay! The resulting ether trail like sound is awesome.

"The Wizard of Oz sync with DSoTM is total bullshit - it doesn't exist. There are a few conincidences, but none of them are very remarkable."

The caching of money as Dorothy enters munchkin land
Right munchkins dancing in 7/4 to money?
The hurricane choreographed beautifully to great gig in the sky?
The lolly pop boys skipping to Us and them ?
The scarecrow dancing on the path?
The heart beat that fades out dark side is in perfect time with Dorothy listening to the tin mans heart which isn't there?

It’s just fun man! It's not suppose to be taken seriously it's hilarious I love it. But I really do think that Money's bass line was made to go with Munchkins dancing, it's too much of a coincidence not to be deliberate

I'm going to try that 2001 one it sounds too good to be true but I think Waters sync a lot of Floyd songs to random things

Pixies – Lady in the Radiator Song Lyrics 18 years ago
Eraserhead is one funny film but dumb though. It doesn't make any sense and it took three screenings of it for me to realise that it's called Eraserhead, because in one dream sequence they use a part of his brain to make erasers on pencils.

Pixies – Debaser Lyrics 18 years ago
This film was banned in England by the bbfc. I think Frank was having a pop at the whole film censors idea of seeing something on a film influencing you to replicate it in real life - funny as hell. He is merely saying that seeing this fucked up thing on screen makes me want to replicate it and be a debaser it’s sarcastic

This song was awesome they use to rock but now they just forgot their ideals and gone with the crowd they have sold out which is what they were protesting about before - Bands selling out. I love the first album, ep, Hang Ups and Darrin's Cocconutt Ass

I know what this song is about and I am fully aware that I kinda took the line - Wish You Were Here as an iconic thing when I sent my girlfriend a copy of it for her birthday 2 years ago. It was an original unopened copy of it on vinyl and I haven't seen her since, but this year I may well get over to see her

At the Drive-In – Transatlantic Foe Lyrics 18 years ago
"pet sounds filling pet peeve void's
black and white tv with the sound turned down
is it mono or stereo?
lending aneurysm satisfaction in the
fruitless gaze of your mona lisa lazy smile
trick ourselves in portable stanzas
black russian throated on this
guillotine cancer
how steep we are
but there's just no telling
just no telling"

This is by far the best opening verse to a song EVER!!!
Nothing matches the intensity of this song nothing in my opinion!
This song is so fun to play on guitar and I na band it’s just such a blast and screaming the "Carrion birds part" is a fantastic feeling. I love At The Drive In so much they are by far one of the finest bands ever to come out of The USA. The lyrics are always very complex but at the same time have a deeper meaning some of the songs have several meanings. The statements they make, the way they make them and the way they say them are what make this band so great. But live they were amazing so intense and so just having fun. This to me is punk not the watered down crap that carries the cliché around so much nowadays.

Pink Floyd – Run Like Hell Lyrics 18 years ago
I like your thinking..........
Could it be about racists and fascists? Could it be using the nazis as a metaphor/example of totalitarianism like in 1984 say?

Ah as for the sarcasm thing I was been sarcastic about how good it was cus it isn't but at the end of the day that is my opinion so not everyone need subscribe. I recently saw the flaming lips cover a Floyd song exactly as it was played on The Piper At The Gates Of The Dawn LP. It was incredible and my fave Floyd song - Lucifer Sam

I guess for me there are four Floyd’s

The first been Syd's experimental/improv/psych/avant garde 60's Floyd. Secondly you have post Syd which was where they really pushed some boundaries even further - like Meddle, Obscured by clouds, wish you were hear, Dark Side Of The moon.

Then you have the pretty dire Floyd which was where Roger took over big time this was around about the time of The Wall where Rick left and then the follow up - The Final Cut - well that just plain sucked.

The final incarnation of Floyd is the 90's reunion where Rick, Gilmore and Nick all decided to go on. This Floyd is pretty impressive but doesn't cus it next to things like Dark Side, Meddle and the debut incarnation.

Like I say though that is Floyd for me, my fave era been Syd's {60's} you have to admit the impact he had on Floyd as a whole never went away. On Floyd’s last record there are still signs of songs about Syd and the music is still echoes of what Syd began in the 60's before he lost his mind and way

I don't like the wall but I love run like hell if you read my previous post correctly you would know this little nugget of information. I do however apologise for calling you a moron that was a little harsh and indeed even in a joking way a little out of order.

Now seriously I am yet to find anyone who has said what this song is about it's a simple concept yes but it has meaning so please do elaborate my friend enlighten us with your benevolent wisdom and never ending spiel of knowledge

I am like obssessed with this song!!! i don't really know why. I guess cause it is so diffrent and spacey. yay for the pixies.... btw, are the pixies now sparta? or part of the way sparta?

Hell no the pixies and At The Drive-In are totally different At The Drive In has more energy and much more obscure lyrics. Spartra is like a shitty version of at the drive in {when they split the bassist drummer and guitarist Jim formed Spartra} the best half of At The Drive-In {Omar and Cedric} formed the more evolved group The Mars Volta. Anyway back to the pixies the pixies are one of the most laid back groups to ever exist if you ever see footage of them live they don't move heh they are so laid back I love em!

Pixies – Here Comes Your Man Lyrics 18 years ago
Yeah a lot of Pixie songs have hidden meanings this one was about the first drop of an atom bomb on Nagasaki. Frank has a way of summing up human faults in an album. It's strange cus it almost makes them concept albums, Doolitle is very dibical and deals with human faults and vices and Bossanova and Tromp Le Monde are about a kid watching aliens fly past in his back yard.

"by Shannon on 02-07-2002 @ 04:32:19 AM
yeah it was written for syd barret...he was a mad drug user and died a few years after "leaving' the band."

You are wrong of course. Syd is still alive and well he lives in cambridge he quit music in a pretty big way. LSd cannot harm you in any other way cept mentaly. Syd went mad that's all and his well enough to get on with life now. He did not die and you are ignorant for stating so. Do you know of anyone who has died off of weed and LSD? Peter Green? no he is still alive and touring! Jimi Hendrix? No he died from heroin! Jerry Gracia? NO he died of cancer Janis Joplin? NO she died of heroin!
No one has died from LSD so get your facts right.

Anyway this song is about Syd so blatantly just like the wall and dark side of the moon is and some of the early 90's songs are too.
