Hot Rod Circuit – Knees Lyrics 15 years ago
Yeah, but surely it's "sight"?

Neutral Milk Hotel – Oh Comely Lyrics 15 years ago
It makes sense if you say that Jeff said this was about a girl that he wasn't there for. The Anne Frank reference:

"And I know they buried her body with others
Her sister and mother and 500 families
And will she remember me 50 years later
I wished I could save her in some sort of time machine."

could be him comparing the same feelings, like he wishes that he could have been there for both of them.
I'm sure I've heard somewhere that Jeff said "this song is about a lot of things" before playing it...

Panic! at the Disco – Camisado (Relax, Relapse) Lyrics 15 years ago
Well "Lying is the most fun a girl can have without taking her clothes off, but it's better if we do" is a quote from 'Closer', so there is another reference. Plus those two songs seem to fit the story of the movie perfectly.

Neutral Milk Hotel – In the Aeroplane Over the Sea Lyrics 15 years ago
Dr. Octagon, Anne Frank (a Jew) hiding in a house from Nazi Germans IS about the Holocaust. She had to hide BECAUSE she was a Jew, how is that not about the Holocaust?

Minus the Bear – Absinthe Party at the Fly Honey Warehouse Lyrics 15 years ago
The drinking age in France is 16.

John Lennon – Jealous Guy Lyrics 16 years ago
Apparantly John made Yoko write a list of all the men she had slept with shortly after they had met... and he wrote this as an apology. S'what I heard.

Bright Eyes – Sing, Sing, Sing Lyrics 16 years ago
'At the Bottom of Everything'

Cursive – Butcher the Song Lyrics 16 years ago
i think by organ he just means the instrument... and by ugly organ he means ugly music, or music about pain. and that is what this album is about.
by butcher's knife i think he means either self-harm and self-hate or wanting to distance himself from his music, because it hurts him to write it, and he's thinking about giving it all up for good. or maybe a bit of both.
any thoughts?

Owen – Who Found Who's Hair In Who's Bed Lyrics 16 years ago
Why bother correcting yourself when you talk like a Spaniad anyway?

Eminem – Like Toy Soldiers Lyrics 16 years ago
"my bum is on your lips" was a quote from a tom green song anyway... I think this song is pretty general, but i was wondering what was 50's beef?
when i sing the chorus of this song in my head, it always turns into "nancy boy" by placebo, which is rather unfortunate.
also, is suge the same suge that owned tupacs record company, and who some say shot him?

Owen – May First Brings A Lot Of Laughs Lyrics 16 years ago
bucket full of beautiful things

Owen – Skin and Bones Lyrics 16 years ago
that verse is "we'Ve all the same SOCIAL conStraints and emotional cravings"

Owen – Skin and Bones Lyrics 16 years ago
it is "the devil's in the detail"
and "so show constraints" (what are contraits like?)

The Lyndsay Diaries – Lady Luck Lyrics 16 years ago
pretty sure this is right, dont shout too loud if its not.

The Get Up Kids – Second Place Lyrics 16 years ago
the new get up kids album is their best yet (maybe), however you're right i didnt think on a wire was much good.

Counting Crows – August and Everything After Lyrics 16 years ago
its crazy that adam played this song after all this time, its not the greatest, but it was real nice of him to do it.

Counting Crows – Accidentally In Love Lyrics 16 years ago
its not very good for these guys

Brand New – Car (Built to Spill cover) Lyrics 16 years ago
i think he tries too hard to sound like the original

American Football – Honestly? Lyrics 16 years ago
WhiteTide, go name drop somewhere else
and stop bragging about how you met tim kinsella, and how you "discovered" them 3 years ago, please.

Joni Mitchell – The Last Time I Saw Richard Lyrics 16 years ago
anthem for all hopeless romantics

Saves the Day – Morning In The Moonlight Lyrics 16 years ago
chris' voice disappeared, sounds so dead on this album

The Shins – Saint Simon Lyrics 16 years ago
i always hear beach boys influences in the shins. not like the blues rock riffs, but the vocal melodies have that feel, in a sort of "good vibrations verse" sort of way. maybe his voice is slightly high pitched brian wilson-esque...
don't think i'm crazy

The Shins – Girl On The Wing Lyrics 16 years ago
to me, it seems more like its about these two people who love each other, but just cant get along and always fall out... and in this son he is saying "cant we just forget it all and be happy".
as for the "i sold all my evil motives,
no icicles stuck in my hide.
i'm through with riddles, i know we're little
just help me feel warm inside" well he is just saying that he's willing to forget all grudges and just let them be happy.
anyone else?

The Shins – Caring Is Creepy Lyrics 16 years ago
happytunes, i like your interpretation the least.

Morrissey – Piccadilly Palare Lyrics 16 years ago

"under slate grey victorian sky" - so Camden

Morrissey – The Ordinary Boys Lyrics 16 years ago
this is the song that "The Ordinary Boys" took their name from, was it not?

Morrissey – (I'm) The End Of The Family Line Lyrics 16 years ago
chloe, you need to stop going in every song and saying that its about homosexuality

Morrissey – Bengali In Platforms Lyrics 16 years ago
the "narrator" is just saying to the boy/man that moving to the western world might not be what he dreamed of because people are racist, and it may be hard to live here.
And he is also saying to the western people, that this guy just wants to embrace your culture...
it is in no way racist.

Morrissey – That's Entertainment Lyrics 16 years ago
i don't like the lyric changes he has done here... he messed it all around so that is doesnt make as much sense or have as much charm... the jam's version sounds much better too.

The Shins – Girl Inform Me Lyrics 16 years ago
yeah cut the mustard just means you are good enoughfor something "making the cut"

The Smiths – What She Said Lyrics 16 years ago
"What she read
all heady books
she'd sit and prophesise
(it took a tattooed boy from
to really really open her eyes)"

that is one of my favourite couple of lines. its a bit sad, but its so true, and then the refference to birkenhead just tops it off... it reminds you just how brittish morrissey is, plus birkenhead is less than half an hour from where i live... fickle i know, but it makes here seem a bit cooler

The Smiths – William, It Was Really Nothing Lyrics 16 years ago
this song is about wanting to get on with your life because you feel you should be. and get married just seems like part of the life plan, even when you know the girl you're with isnt in love...
as for that fat thing, i have no idea.. maybe its just about her not being what he imagined he would marry

The Smiths – Shoplifters of the World Unite Lyrics 16 years ago
no kez, you are not stupid, everyone else is for assuming that every single smiths song is about being gay
I think that this song is about defending poor people who commit little petty crimes because they have to, when there are peopl doing worse things that we dont class as "criminals"

The Smiths – How Soon Is Now? Lyrics 16 years ago
morrissey isnt gay, and he may well be bisexual, but i really dont think its such an issue to him. he says he doesnt understand the prefixes to the word "sexual", he just thinks that we are all just "sexual", and this song (and many others of his) may have something to do with sexuality, but not his sexual prefferences.
if you are gay, then thats what this song might mean to you, but don't assume that all of morrissey's songs are about that because i dont think its such a big part of his life.

i do love the lyrics to this song, but musically, it isnt my favourite by a long shot... irecently saw morrissey play this song at leeds festival, but mostly because of the fact that it is a smiths song, and he hasn't played it in so many years. sort of a disbelief, needless to say, it was amazing.

The Smiths – Handsome Devil Lyrics 16 years ago
why would a boy imply a mature woman ?

The Cure – Mint Car Lyrics 16 years ago
why is it called "mint car" ?

The Smiths – Ask Lyrics 16 years ago
whats he mean about the bomb bringing them together ?

The Smiths – Meat Is Murder Lyrics 16 years ago
i'm willing to accept that i am an animal, and that animals eat other animals. its just part of nature, and besides, steak is goooood.

Counting Crows – Omaha Lyrics 16 years ago
i would say more like he's has been there for a long time, and nothing is changing... and the people around there arent very glamouress, and its kinda sad... and adam is like "i gotta get out"

Counting Crows – Diamonds, Babies and Cars Lyrics 16 years ago
seems like he's saying that people are wasting their time waiting for something, or at least spending their time waiting. the get what they want, and there is something new that they want. the people are going round in circles in this endless queue, and the days are passing them by.

Counting Crows – I'm Not Sleeping Lyrics 16 years ago
elizabeth is a real person, your'e thinking of MARIA i think.
because adam says he alone in this song, it seems more like this girl that comes to him at night is all in his head. he imagines her coming to sit next to him and all that... and it just makes him feel more alone

Counting Crows – The Ghost In You (Psychedelic Furs cover) Lyrics 16 years ago
its like that the past love was a real long time ago, and is dead, and in heaven... but even after all this time, its still falling down on him. wether it be angels, rain or stars (anything from the sky/heavens)

Counting Crows – St. Robinson In His Cadillac Dream Lyrics 16 years ago
it reminds me of rain king in the way that it says "im a loner, and a dreamer"... like many other of CC songs

Counting Crows – Time and Time Again Lyrics 16 years ago
he's missing someone really badly, and he's feeling so strange when theyre not there, and he just doesnt want to be there, or feel it. i think "i wanna sink slowly without getting wet" sums it up.
as for the end part, it soudns like he's just drifting off into dream, and starting to feel kind of angry/careless.

Counting Crows – Love And Addiction Lyrics 16 years ago
i think its about him going out and having a good time, and having sex... and then fooling himself that it is love. and deep down he knows that it means nothing, but he just wants to ignore it, and doesnt really care.
some parts he's is trying to convince this woman that it could be love, and that he's a good catch... then towards the end he accepts that it was just fun, and he's saying "i deserve it, i knew it all along" sort of thing... and so he decides to just fuck it and go and have a good time again.

Counting Crows – Children In Bloom Lyrics 16 years ago
sounds like its written from the perspective of adam as a teenager/kid... and he's realising what adulthood is really about, and he's trying to grow up.... but then he'll remind the listener that he is just a kid again, with the childlike language and refferences.

Counting Crows – Monkey Lyrics 16 years ago
doesnt he hate her now?... and didnt they write a song together? and adam doesnt like playing it becuase he hates her? or was that just another roumor?

Sister Hazel – Champagne High Lyrics 16 years ago
where does champagne cost less than wine brook?
