Helloween – The Game Is On Lyrics 10 years ago
To further my point, the "grey box" refers to the original Gameboy, not the orignal Nintendo controller. In the second verse, he is sitting in a chair in his room playing the Gameboy.

My reasoning behind this? All of the sounds in the song come from old Gameboy games.

Helloween – The Game Is On Lyrics 10 years ago
Does anyone know which "game over" theme it plays at the end? I know it was one of about 3 games I used to play on my original Gameboy back in the day and I can't for the life of me remember which one it was.

I think that is actually the coin collect sound, possibly from Mario Six Golden Coins (one of the games I mentioned could be where the sound at the end comes from).

This song is about Gameboys, not consoles.

S Club 7 – Two In A Million Lyrics 10 years ago
Anyone ever notice the typo in the booklet - "bought us together"? It bugged me forever because it didn't sound right to me. Of course... I was like 14 back then. I didn't realize that booklets weren't infallible x)

Alexander Rybak – Fairytale Lyrics 11 years ago
Shame this is a bit lame because the violin is really nice. Still, probably the best song from 2009 at Eurovision, so I'm not surprised it won.

Blind Guardian – Sacred Worlds Lyrics 11 years ago
These are my educated guess at corrections:

Line 2: "there is war at hand"
Line 4: "After all I think the end is dawning (or starting?)"
Line 6-7: "there'll be ... war it's now or never, we shall stand together"

Regime may or may not be "machine"

I'm too lazy to look up the full version.

That being said, this song is bloody amazing and I love it. One of Blind Guardian's best to date.

Yea, I agree with both of you guys, both good interpretations ^_^

HIM – Summer Wine Lyrics 11 years ago
This is such an awesome cover, I love Ville's voice in it.

If it's not obvious, it's about a guy who meets a girl at a saloon and she tells him to join her, gets him drunk on wine, and steals his valuables. Really nice sounding song... good for karaoke duets!

Nickelback – Savin' Me Lyrics 11 years ago
I don't think it's about suicide at all... just a hopeless love that would "end your life" in a more metaphorical sense. To save someone from the heartbreak and desperation. The lyrics state that he's not jumping anyways. I know a lot of people who have considered themselves dead or dying and that love could save them. I think it refers to it in more of that sense.

Nickelback – Feelin' Way Too Damn Good Lyrics 11 years ago
I hate this band more than pretty much any other band ever but damn... I like this song. I feel like that goes against everything I believe in but this song actually somehow speaks to me. Who would've thought?

Wow, I have never really been into Bathory but this song is unreal. What beautiful lyrics, beautiful music, and it leaves such a nice feeling behind.

Lacuna Coil – Wide Awake Lyrics 11 years ago
This is such a beautiful song, I can`t get enough of it.
I just recently moved to Finland so I could get away from my life and find myself and this song really seems to encompass everything I feel... how I treasure my life so much more, how I built a cage for myself and it`s so liberating now that I set myself free... everything about this song is just perfect to describe how my life has changed in the last month.

Norther – Frozen Angel Lyrics 11 years ago
This song is brilliant. The new version with the new singer is really quite good as well. Seems like the new singer was a good choice.

I think this was written for that V2 movie (or whatever it's called). I'm not sure if that might have anything to do with the meaning or not.

Battlelore – Green Dragon Lyrics 12 years ago
This is immensely clever. I don't know the words to the Green Dragon song that the hobbits sing but I do know that the Green Dragon was one of their favorite taverns.

Teräsbetoni – Pyhä Maa Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"This is also one of my first Teräsbetoni songs. The lyrics came from thinking of what is sacred to the warriors. Of those the ground felt best for a subject of the song, Metallivaltio [State of Metal]. There is a bit of flavour of national romanticism included, but I would like to emphasize, that the state in question is Metallivaltio and the way each of us sees it. Musically this is typical for Rantanen, meaning melodic with double kick. (Rantanen)"

Charon – House Of The Silent Lyrics 12 years ago
This is my favorite Charon song. It's so powerful and epic sounding and the deepness of his voice really shows through. It's an amazing way to end an awesome album.

Teräsbetoni – Älä Kerro Meille Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"This song could be seen as a continuation to the song Teräsbetoni, which begins the Metallitotuus-album, because the song was born soon after it. It is a bit more epic and rock (and there must be rock!). The song progresses like on rails towards an inevitable victory. ”Brothers and sisters unite for the truth”, in other case, do not come to tell us how to play — or win (…Eurovision, heh). (Ahola)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Vihollisille Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"The countermove to the song Sotureille from the previous album. Now we are singing to the enemies of the band, what we think of them. Musically “Taivas lyö tulta” —style basic-Teräsbetoni, which I believed would work immediately. In the mixing I instructed Hiilesmaa, that “the chorus in the end must be BIG”. And Hiili really did what I wished. (Rantanen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Vahva Kuin Metalli Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"A song of how you must be ready to rush also through obstacles which feel impossible, in order to achieve your goals and finally to defend what is yours. Furthermore it is about the gathering and formation of troops like in the early times. (Järvinen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Voittamaton Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"A song about Teräsbetoni and our attitude towards what we do. The idea was to write a song which you can set playing from whatever player you have and head to the task and towards challenges. Hopefully I have managed to get the spirits high at least for some. In the arrangement I wanted to emphasize the presence of J. Kuokkanen with his battery, and therefore the song begins with a tom pattern and also on the C-part there is a strong rhythm of drums and guitars. (Ahola)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Ukkoshevonen Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"Thanks for the idea to Osku from Warner; he suggested writing a song of a horse. Structurally the text doesn’t actually make sense, but fortunately horses do. I think I first composed the WASP-style intro and the rest followed easily. Modulations are always great. (Rantanen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Tuonelaan Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"The song was born from a riff, to which the chorus came easily. For some reason already in the beginning the word “Tuonelaan” [“to the underworld”, Tuonela is a name of the underworld in Finnish mythology] was in my mind, and the lyrics developed from that. I had not written lyrics in the form of a story before and that seemed to fit to the subject which started slowly taking shape. A man is assassinated and after selling his soul, he returns to take revenge on everyone, even upon the innocent, even his closest ones. Somehow that thought is creepy and tragic at the same time. (Ahola)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Teräsbetoni Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"The title song of our band, which contains what this is all about since the beginning: “We do what we see is best and don’t beg for permission from anyone / the numerous enemies shall one day call our names with respect.” It seems like there is still work to do! (Ahola)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Teräksen Varjo Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"The first ever Teräsbetoni song, and the most important task it had was to create the atmosphere. The story of the riff in the beginning is interesting, because a trial of such kind we played together as teenagers with my guitarist friend Iiro, when one of us said: “lets play Manowar”. The arrangement of the song is quite Manowar-like, but like I have stated several times, the song has not been copied from anywhere. Speed and feeling. Of my own songs, this is one of the closest to me. (Rantanen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Taivas Lyö Tulta Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"The second Teräsbetoni song of all. Blustering and emphasizing the togetherness, therefore works greatly on gigs. I meant to make a more original melody for the chorus, but since the text started to play in this form in my mind, it had to be done like that. Obviously it was a good choice. (Rantanen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Seiso Suorassa Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"A song written in the name of honesty and uprightness. When you do not take the easy way out and do well what you are committed to do, that ends with honour. In a way a modern labour-movement-song which calls for stamina. (Järvinen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Paha Sanoo Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"Every medal has its reverse. A well-liked member of his society suffers of a curse which forces him to secretly do work of a devil. In composing there was a source of inspiration from abroad and the lyrics were born only after the name of the song, which came from the mouth of our mixer, Knuutinen. (Järvinen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Orjatar Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"Women.. and men. The eternal subjects of conversations. Chauvinism. Feminism. Women’s Studies. Gender roles. Patriarch. Matriarch. Who rules the roost? I have no idea, but it was great to write a song of the subject, with as rigid attitude as in the other Teräsbetoni songs. That created debate and the reporters still keep asking about this. But don’t take offence, just have fun. (Ahola)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Metallitotuus Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"The ideology of the band is crystallized in Metallitotuus. In this song the army of Teräsbetoni is gathered and united under the common flag. Brothers and sisters are invited to the rank of all of us, so that no one needs to fear anything from their sides. Who belongs to our fraternity, is blessed in his/her actions by Metallitotuus. (Järvinen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Metallisydän Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"I wanted to compose a big song which would balance the other songs in the album. In the right moment the song was born almost like on its own and I felt how the pieces fell to their places inside of me. Because of the nature of the song, the lyrics had to be a bit different from the ordinary, and the song, backboned with quite sentimental interpretation, tells about the dark moments of life, when everything seems to fall on you. No one can avoid those moments. But in the end the strength and will, with which you get forward, are always found. (Ahola)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Metallin Voima Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"I wanted to get back to a similar spirit as in the first song, Teräksen varjo. Power, speed, atmosphere. The guitars blasting and the choruses rolling. With the trash-riff in the C-part I wanted to add a little more power. (Rantanen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Maljanne Nostakaa Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:
"After the hard day-to-day work you need to remember to reward yourself and to rest. The best way to do that is in a good company by a groaning table. One of the three songs in the first demo, and therefore a valuable part of the beginning of the band’s journey. (Järvinen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Kuumilla Porteilla Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:
"The song is based on the comic about the battle of Thermopylae on 480 BC by Frank Miller, where the Spartans led by the King Leonidas faced the Persians of Xerxes I. Based on the same comic has also been made a movie called 300, which got its premiere in 2007. In the song, the part of King Leonidas is played by Ahola and Xerxes by Järvinen. (Järvinen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Varmaan Kuolemaan Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"A song with many simple riffs; it tells a story where a warrior, who has been left alone, does what has to be done. First I did only the composing, and when I begun with the lyrics, I remembered that such a story was left out from the first album. And it fitted perfectly! The text from the C-part was changed to intro, which actually brought more dimension. The original Varmaan kuolemaan —song was really slow and had a blues-style riff! (Rantanen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Sotureille Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"The different one. I was thinking of some songs based on tom pattern and singing from older metal bands, and decided that these elements will also be the base of this song. Works brilliantly on gigs, it is directed to you — “to the warriors” [=sotureille]. (Rantanen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Paha Silmä Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace page:

"For each of our albums I have done several demo tracks with double kick. This time it was this song which ended up in the record from that category. The text is a more mystical one, so inserting a couple of more eastern notes fitted to it. This is also a song which is rich in atmosphere. (Rantanen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Vaadimme Metallia Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace blog:

"The first song I offered to the sophomore album ended up there and also gave the name to the album (there were a couple of other good suggestions for a name!). The song first points to the times of the first album and then the horses are turned towards new challenges. I wanted to write a song which would have a positive and lively atmosphere, sound language and lyrics, a song of a good feeling, where is good going and in addition to traditional figures, also new harmonic elements, like broken chords and changes of major/minor third. I am very satisfied with this song. (Ahola)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Kotiinpalaaja Lyrics 12 years ago

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Kirotut Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from the band's myspace blog:

"A dark-cloudy story of how some give up their honour, if there is enough lucre offered in exchange. The song, heavy as lead and containing exceptionally many verses, ends the Vaadimme metallia —album with eradication of the traitors from the rank. Ahola is accompanied by Järvinen in singing the verses. (Järvinen)"

submissions
Teräsbetoni – Aika on Lyrics 12 years ago
Quoted from their myspace blog:

"The lyrics in this song are the closest to me. Even though time passing by as a subject for song lyrics is a cliché as such (for example March Of Time by Helloween is an excellent song), I wanted to also write about it combined with a warrior theme. Regarding the composing I was aiming at a simple hit, but the song was never even considered to be released as a single! Hoho! (Rantanen)"

Eluveitie – Tarvos Lyrics 12 years ago
Another Slania 2008 CD insert quote:

"The myth of Tarvos Trigaranos (Gaulish for "Golden Bull") is one of the few and precious Gaulish parables which has survived until today. It hails from primordial times when the earth was young, and tells us how the seasons came to be. The narration of parables, the reciting of metaphorical songs is a custom, that was deep-seated in the Celtic culture."
