Sixpence None the Richer – There She Goes Lyrics 12 years ago
Many songs are taken beyond their intended meaning beacuse of the melody. Iggy Pop's "Lust for Life," The Starlight Vocal Band's "Afternoon Delight," Frankie Goes to Hollywood "Relax," etc. People get lost in the tune and just don't think to examine the whole of the song (nothing is wrong with them, they just take it for something else). But there are those songs that even the best melody can't hide it's meaning (see Warren Zevon "Excitable Boy")

This absolutely all about survival. How the spirit is a hard thing to break.

Sarah Harmer – Almost Lyrics 14 years ago
I see it as a song where someone wants to move on, but they miss the excitement of an old flame. They know that nothing good can come of a reunion, but they crave the return, almost like an addiction.

Dinosaur Jr. – Feel the Pain Lyrics 15 years ago
I think it's about someone that gets everyone's baggage piled on him and then eventually he can't deal anymore. He becomes numb and miserable.

The Verve Pipe – Her Ornament Lyrics 16 years ago
I think it's about someone yearning to be with someone, wanting to just be apart of their lives in some way.

Spiderbait – Plastic Lyrics 16 years ago
I think the person does want to go, but they just feel that they don't have the strength or means to do so, something is keeping them from flying away

Blake Babies – Girl in a box Lyrics 17 years ago
It was based on the abduction and kept in a box built into some guys bed. Her name was Carol Smith I think. This song is yet another example of how the Blake Babies pair very dark lyrics with very sweet harmony.

The Animals – House Of The Rising Sun Lyrics 17 years ago
The House of the Rising Sun
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The House of the Rising Sun is a United States folk song.

Like many classic folk ballads, the authorship of House of the Rising Sun, sometimes called "Rising Sun Blues", is dubious. Folklorist Alan Lomax, author of the seminal 1941 songbook Our Singing Country, wrote that the melody was taken from a traditional English ballad and the lyrics written by a pair of Kentuckians named Georgia Turner and Bert Martin. Other scholars have proposed different explanations, although Lomax's is generally considered most plausible.

In the early 20th century, the phrase "Rising Sun" may have been used as a euphemism for a brothel or house of prostitution, and it is not known whether or not the house described in the lyrics is an actual or fictitious place.

Various places in New Orleans, Louisiana have been proposed as the inspiration for the song, with varying plausibility. City directories of the late 19th century record a "Rising Sun Hall" in the riverfront of the uptown Carrollton neighborhood, which seems to have been a building owned and used for meetings of a Social Aid & Pleasure Club, commonly rented out for dances and functions. Links to gambling or prostitution, if any, are undocumented for this building.

Liz Phair – Polyester Bride Lyrics 17 years ago
My favorite part of this song is the seemingly tortured bartender Henry. He just lets her know that hey I'm here, I'm a good guy, and you should be grateful for it.

Velocity Girl – Audrey's Eyes Lyrics 18 years ago

Brad Paisley – I'm Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin' Song) Lyrics 19 years ago
This song is pretty funny. Just goes to show that you take the fish out of the lake, but never the fishermen away from the fishing.

Snow Patrol – Velocity Girl Lyrics 19 years ago
This song seems like it was written about the girl in the Primal Scream song also titled "Velocity Girl," but going a bit further post "vodka in her veins"

Juliana Hatfield – Tamara Lyrics 19 years ago
To me this song is a testament to people who really want to change and achieve, but sometimes are affraid, and I can relate to this sometimes. It's about how we try to psyche ourselves up for the moment, but we are to cautious and it just passes.

Juliana Hatfield – Josie And The Pussycats Lyrics 19 years ago
One of the Saturday Morning Cartoon Themes redone in the '90s on a compilation album. This was actually a duet of Juliana Hatfield, and Tanya Donelly, formerly of Belly, and now gone solo. This was actually a very good pairing of the two with the song.

Juliana did a great job covering this Marianne Faithful song. She really made it a great addition to the movie The Craft

Juliana Hatfield – Supermodel Lyrics 19 years ago
This is one of my favorite Juliana Hatfield songs. It really hits on the fact that the world of the supermodel is so superficial and fleeting that it's almost like the people aren't even real, but just a way to market an unrealistic and discusting standard of beuty. The best part it is a beautiful person talking about the whole thing.

Juliana Hatfield – $1000 Wedding Lyrics 19 years ago
This is such an awsome song. Evan Dando and Juliana Hatfield do a great job revising this Gram Parsons/Emmy Lou Harris(not 11% sure if she was the second half of it, but it's a safe bet.)

Blake Babies – Lament Lyrics 19 years ago
To me this song is all about going away from somewhere, or from a group, and then coming back to realizee how things have changed, especially in yourself, and how sometimes people want you to go back to the way things were
