Mos Def – Hip Hop Lyrics 10 years ago
You can't get the full effect of this song unless you listen to Fear Not of Men right before it on the album. It flows perfectly right into it.

Anywho, truly perfect hip hop right here.

Not only does this song have one of the illest beats in history, Mos absolutely kills throughout the whole song.

Marvin Gaye – Let's Get It On Lyrics 10 years ago
This song is clearly about the rigors of Viking life in eighteenth-century Scandinavia. "Getting it on" was Viking slang for the ritual sacrificing of a goat in reverence to the Norse god Odin.

Marvin really chose to emphasize the heartbreak of Viking mothers and wives forced to send their brood off to rape and pillage the English countryside, the line "we're all sensitive people" is a direct reference to a saying passed down through Scandinavian lore (original tongue "Ragnarok yule'woad gwe'lheny") which Vikings uttered moments before plunging their halberds into the chests of farmhands.

Public Enemy – He Got Game Lyrics 11 years ago

That's called sampling, the most widely used technique in rap music production. How can you like PE but hate sampling? There is at least a couple samples in almost all of their songs.

Besides, this sample works perfectly and its only the two notes. It certainly doesn't ruin For What It's Worth, thats ridiculous.

Anyway, this really is a legendary rap song. Everything about this song is perfect, the sample, the rhymes, the beat, the gospel choir and Flav's end-of-song message.

Bob Dylan – It's Alright, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) Lyrics 12 years ago
I think the phrase

'hes not busy born is busy dying'

Means that the man/woman who is not constantly learning and growing and thinking and interpreting is just wasting their life away.

Bob Dylan – Highway 61 Revisited Lyrics 12 years ago
I love this song.

Bob Dylan – Love Minus Zero/No Limit Lyrics 12 years ago
This song has one the best harmonica 'solos' in any of his songs. And its only like 12 seconds long! Its perfect.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Power to Love Lyrics 12 years ago
Some good soul/funk guitar on this song.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – We Gotta Live Together Lyrics 12 years ago
The lick starting at 0:36 is the one from Sly and the Family Stones 'Sing a Simple Song'.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Earth Blues Lyrics 12 years ago
Good ole Jimi. Funky little song.

Bob Dylan – Tombstone Blues Lyrics 12 years ago
This song is absolutely scathing.

Bob Dylan – On the Road Again Lyrics 12 years ago
This is a catchy little song.

Bob Dylan – Maggie's Farm Lyrics 12 years ago
I always that it was about life in general. There are all these great ideas spinning around in your head that you don't know what to do with, while you live in a place where normality is enforced. It's just the mental suffocation of a creative mind in a shallow world. IMO.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Changes Lyrics 12 years ago
This was actually written by Buddy Miles. But he played with Jimi so same thing I guess.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Purple Haze Lyrics 12 years ago
I'm disgusted as to what some 'people' have posted for this song. Yes he did drugs, who in the 60's didnt? Jimi did NOT perform on drugs. He thought it hampered his performance and detracted from the 'earthiness' of it all. Acid in his headband? WTF? That has myth all over it. The point is, this man lived and ultimately died for something he loved more than anything, music. And you people are being disrespectful to someone who deserves better with all this 'he did drugs' bullshit, yes we know. Have some fuckin respect.

'Ultimate Hendrix Fan', I highly doubt it, just by the songs you listed. Foxy Lady, Purple Haze? Those are the songs of a Hendrix fan who doesnt know any others.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – House Burning Down Lyrics 12 years ago
This song if fucking great.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Message to Love Lyrics 12 years ago
This is a great song. The message is awesome.

Find yourself
Get your talent
Come alive

Truly one of the greatest human beings that ever lived.

Bob Dylan – Gotta Serve Somebody Lyrics 12 years ago
Hauge, thats not necessarily true. Life is not black and white. If you are not worshipping Christ, that doesn't mean you are worshipping Satan. That doesn't make logical sense. I am a Christian, and that to me sounds retarded. Some people just don't have a relationship with God, doesn't mean their evil. I apologize to everyone for Hauges ignorance.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Machine Gun Lyrics 12 years ago
This song is absolutely devastating. Especially when Buddy Miles (drummer) sings 'ooooh' around 7:43. It's so chaotic. I just love how he blends Soul, Funk, Blues, and Rock. All my favorites. This is song is awesome and so is Jimi.

Bob Dylan – Subterranean Homesick Blues Lyrics 12 years ago

That, I don't agree with. Yes, I know Dylan has said that before. But I think he was fibbing. There is NO possible way that songs like this that dont make any sense yet put such a perspective on life and change peoples viewpoints as it has mine, and taught me to appreciate things more, and slow down and think. There is no WAY this song means nothing. I refuse to believe it. Dylan got this talent from somewhere, its not coincidental. Be it God, Buddha, or a sock lying on the ground. This man was blessed with something very special. It MAY mean 'nothing', but the feelings it conveys and the pure emotion that it invokes IS deep. Thats what I think. :)

Ever heard Moby Dick by Led Zeppelin? John Bonham does an 8 minute solo.
