Mark Knopfler – Sailing To Philadelphia Lyrics 20 years ago
This song is obviously about Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon, two British astronomers sent to the new world to survey the border between Pennslyvania and Maryland to settle a bet or a territorial dispute or something of that nature. The original line had nothing to do with North-South/Slave-No Slave, it was drawn over 100 years before the Civil War, and did not extend farther east or west than the borders of Pennslyvania. It later got the colloquial usage as the North-South line, but despite what some say, I don't think that is what this song is about.

Simon and Garfunkel – The Boxer Lyrics 20 years ago
I've heard this verse added a few times, I guess it would be the 4th verse:

Now the years are rolling by me,
they are rocking evenly.
I am older than I once was,
but younger than I'll be.
That's not unusual.
No, it isn't strange,
After changes upon changes,
we are more or less the same.
After changes we are more or less the same.

Blues Traveler – Stand Lyrics 20 years ago
I don't know what the song means, but the buildup in the "The answers are getting harder.." part is great, the reason I love the song.

Dave Matthews Band – Two Step Lyrics 20 years ago
Not that I'm disputing the love affair during war meaning, I think it makes sense, but the 101st Airborne jumps out of planes, not helicopters.

Styx – Blue Collar Man (Long Nights) Lyrics 20 years ago
I don't know this cause I'm Catholic, its from Greek Mythology. The river Styx is one of the four rivers in hell, stepping in it would cause you to lose your memory.

Dire Straits – Brothers In Arms Lyrics 20 years ago
This is perhaps my favorite song. I think he's talking about loyalty and brotherhood, two things that I think are very important.
