Evanescence – Wake Me Up Inside Lyrics 8 years ago
You'd think that after five years, people would know what the song's called.

Evanescence – The Vanishing Sky Lyrics 8 years ago
Yeah, if this were an Evanescence song, then it must be so rare that even EvanescenceReference doesn't know about it. Not to mention the grammatical errors thrown in for flavor.

Evanescence – Within Temptation Lyrics 8 years ago
Lolwut- this isn't Evanescence. Here's a hint- there's a band called Within Temptation.

Evanescence – The Only One Lyrics 9 years ago
This is probably a weird place to put it, but I don't get why there are a lot of people who don't like TOD. Sure, it's a different sound, but just because something changes doesn't mean it's automatically worse.

Unrelatedly, there's an ad on the page about the warning signs of a stroke. Vaguely amusing, in a semi-ironic sort of way.

Evanescence – Call Me When You're Sober Lyrics 9 years ago
"no more of that 'I think this song's about Jebus!' crap!"

lol. There is usually at least one comment saying that a song's about Christianity.

And kamri39: calm down! Breakups usually happen because of problems on both sides. Don't just start calling someone you've never met a bitch, k?

Evanescence – Your Star Lyrics 9 years ago
Terry Balsamo. He's the guitarist, better known (at least to me xD) as "that guy with the dreadlocks in the music videos". He and Amy are the main songwriters.

I love the "we're wandering now / all in parts and pieces": it gets stuck in my head whenever I listen to this song.

Evanescence – Even In Death Lyrics 9 years ago
This song is the main reason I wish that you could get Origin songs on iTunes. It's amazing.

Evanescence – Hello Lyrics 9 years ago
Quoting a source that I don't remember:

"If you listen to the track 'Hello' on Fallen, you can hear the grief."

That is so true. It's such a beautiful song.

And to Jirou: Ben wrote My Immortal. Amy added the bridge, I think, but it's mostly Ben's song.

Evanescence – Farther Away Lyrics 9 years ago
aufdermaur: if you don't like the band, then why are listening to them?

I know, I know, feeding the trolls.

Evanescence – The Last Song I'm Wasting on You Lyrics 9 years ago
I love the line "I can't hear your screams anymore". This is a beautiful song that gives me chills whenever I listen to it. I can't wait for the new album.

Evanescence – Imaginary (Fallen version) Lyrics 9 years ago
Don't you think that this song should have gotten a video? It would have been awesome.

It's still an amazing song, and I love it.

Such a fun song. I love it =)

Queen – The Show Must Go On Lyrics 9 years ago
Someone's probably mentioned this before, but I'll add it anyway since it's pure awesomeness:

"When Brian May presented the final demo to Mercury, he had doubts that Mercury would be physically capable of singing the song's highly demanding vocal line, due to the extent of his illness at the time. To May's surprise, when the time came to record the vocals, Mercury consumed a measure of vodka and said "I'll fucking do it, darling!" then proceeded to nail the vocal line in one take without problems."

Freddie was seriously amazing. He managed to live more in 45 years than a lot of people do in twice that. I love this song: it just captures how he lived perfectly.

Also, I think "I'll fucking do it, darling!" is going to be my catchphrase from now on.

Evanescence – Heart-Shaped Box (Nirvana cover) Lyrics 9 years ago
I don't get all the Nirvana fans who are saying it's ruined because Ev changed the sound. After listening to both Kurt's and Amy's versions, I think that it's a good cover because it does what a cover's supposed to do: a band takes a song and puts their own spin on it. Sure, Amy changed the sound, but what would be the point of a cover that's identical to the original version? People listen to covers to see how a band takes a song and makes it their own. I also, btw, think that Cake did a good job of this for their I Will Survive cover.

PS - Don't think I'm bashing Nirvana fans: I'm one myself. =)

Evanescence – Cloud Nine Lyrics 9 years ago
About the bipolar thing: Amy specifically said that she wasn't bipolar and that "Lithium" wasn't about the drug. But that's the great thing about art: you can interpret it however you want to, and what it means to you isn't necessarily what it means to the artist. =)

And I like The Open Door. It's got Lithium, Sweet Sacrifice, Like You, Good Enough, and this song. Sure, it's maybe a very close third behind Fallen and Origin, but it's still a good album. I think the change in sound is mainly due to a change in Amy's psyche. For example, Sweet Sacrifice was written as the last song about the bad relationship that Fallen was based on. Significant difference.

Cake – The Guitar Man Lyrics 9 years ago
The original was by a band called Bread? lol

I think it's about how a musician is super-popular, but he's empty inside. Though I may just be listening to too much Ev.

Cake – Pretty Pink Ribbon Lyrics 9 years ago
Why do the lyrics say "denum" instead of "denim"?

Evanescence – Whisper Lyrics 9 years ago
Am I the only one here who's read "Sailor Nothing"?

To find it, you can search "Sailor Nothing" on tvtropes.org: the page for it has a link.

For people who have read it, this song fits the main character really well.

Evanescence – Lithium Lyrics 9 years ago
This song captures my feelings about depression so well: I didn't want to stay depressed but I didn't want to get better: I felt like depression gave me something special. And also there was the matter of depression being familiar and comforting, in a way: I knew myself in the darkness. But I had to let go of it to break free. I'm glad I did =)

Cake – Wheels Lyrics 9 years ago
Slight annoyance: the Bosphorus is a strait, not a river. But who cares, it's a great song.

Cake – No Phone Lyrics 9 years ago
The line "My deepest concerns will stay buried and unspoken" could sum up my life. That's the great thing about Cake: even their simple songs have hidden meanings to different people.

Evanescence – Bring Me To Life Lyrics 9 years ago
I love the music video. It even has a moral: never go sleepwalking out of your apartment window with only a hot guitarist to save you, for he will drop you and leave you plummeting to your death, especially if you are both singing while this is going on.

The White Stripes – Little Acorns Lyrics 9 years ago
Someone should add the voiceover at the beginning. The lyrics don't make much sense without it.

The White Stripes – One More Cup Of Coffee Lyrics 9 years ago
It's a cover? Huh. Anyway, I think it's about a guy who likes a girl but she doesn't like him as much, so he wants one more kiss before he kills himself. Huh? Huh?

Also, have you noticed that a lot of cake songs are about either cars, relationships, or both (a la "The Distance)?

Cake – Open Book Lyrics 9 years ago
To me, it's about a guy who likes a girl and lies to her about who he is ("caught in your own glory/believing your own stories"), but to get her to like him he has to be honest and open up to her.
