Chuck Berry – You Never Can Tell Lyrics 1 year ago
Another fun Chuck Berry song with tons of meaning. Older people always think of the young as foolish, forgetting that they themselves were once thought of that way when they were young.
You can be young, in love, get by without a lot of money, and have fun doing it. That's a message for the ages.

Chuck Berry – Memphis, Tennessee Lyrics 1 year ago
I would class the lyrics to this song as pure poetry, in that they say so much more than the actual words on the page. When you read them and actually think about the scenes they depict, the whole thing becomes a very touching human drama with very specific feelings and situations.
I would class this as the best of the best of Mr. Berry's music. In this case (as in some others) the killer guitar riff actually detracts from the very real message of the song. Its complexity really requires you to open your eyes if you're going to appreciate the song as a complete artistic work.

AC/DC – Have A Drink On Me Lyrics 10 years ago
This song is pure bullshit. I've tried buying a drink and charging to AC/DC and it DOES NOT WORK! They just look at you weird and then call the bouncer...

Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band – The Dust Blows Forward And The Dust Blows Back Lyrics 10 years ago
This song means that in the 60's you could pretty much sing the first crap that popped into your head and someone would still buy it, as long as you wore a cool hat.

I'm not saying it was a bad thing - it's just the way it was...

Eric Clapton – Let It Rain Lyrics 10 years ago
Clapton bludgeoning the pathetic fallacy for 5 minutes and 2 seconds. He needs to buy an umbrella and get over it...

Albertos Y Lost Trio Paranoias – Kill Lyrics 11 years ago
This song may have been intended as a parody of early punk groups like the Sex Pistols; but since all good punk rock is really self-parody anyway, this song really works as straight forward, veins in your teeth, punk rock.

In fact, IMHO this is the greatest punk song of all time, bare none - and if anyone tries to say different, I'll kick 'em in the nuts and run...

A-Ha – Take On Me Lyrics 11 years ago
On the surface this song is about being from Norway and not knowing much English, but still wanting to have a hit record. It's secondary and deeper meaning involves the joy of having high cheek bones, moused up hair and a computer enhanced vocal range.

The Cramps – The Mad Daddy Lyrics 11 years ago
Lux is a mad, mad daddy - either you get it or you don't...

The Cramps – The Crusher Lyrics 11 years ago
Originally done by a 60's garage band called the Novas. The song is a dance take off of an old school wrestler named Reggie "The Crusher" Lisowski.
Check out the "Back from the Grave" series of 60's punk rock collections on Crypt Records for the original...

The Cramps – What's Behind The Mask Lyrics 11 years ago
Women are whores and they'll ruin your life - but what ya gonna do...

Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody Lyrics 11 years ago
This song is about 2 guys named Wayne and Garth that drive around in a car saying stuff like: "Not!", "Party on!", Schwing, and "Excellent!"

Led Zeppelin – Stairway to Heaven Lyrics 11 years ago
A woman contacts an independant contractor to build a large staircase in her home. After 8 minutes and 3 seconds, the listener's brain has become the consistency of cold oatmeal and they have lost all will to live...

Jethro Tull – Aqualung Lyrics 11 years ago
A guy takes up scuba diving as a hobby - it doesn't work out...

Syd Barrett – Dark Globe Lyrics 12 years ago
Being in love is like having someone tatooed on your brain. To me it's a love song, probably to a specific girl. I've heard it said that its directed at Pink Floyd, but I doubt it.
I've listened to a lot of Syd lately. Were I might be able to listen to later Pink Floyd once every 10 years, I never seem to tire of Syd, no matter how many times I hear it. I can't believe no one mentioned Golden Hair.
About Syd - it is funny how our society thinks anyone who avoids wealth & fame must be insane. Wanting to live a quiet life in a quaint English town seems about as sane as it gets to me...
