Richard Marx – Right Here Waiting Lyrics 28 days ago
Marx never intended to record the song but sent it to Barbara Streisand. Barbara wanted the lyrics rewritten to make her sound more empowered which Marx refused. Sometimes things just work out the way they are meant to be.

Eminem – Without Me Lyrics 10 months ago
@[HolyInfidel:35163] The trailer park girls lyrics, in this context, has multiple references.



1) The lyrics to the song Box Cutta Blade Runna' by Cannabis. This seems to be a poke at that artist as, at the time of release of 'Without Me' they were not on good terms.



2) It also, as does the Canabis song, refer back to a song by Malcolm McLaren called 'Buffalo Gals'. Malcolm McLaren was a British promoter, who turned into a fashion store owner (which helped set the look for the early New Wave/New Romantic look in the 80s), and then started managing early punk acts like The New York Dolls, The Sex Pistols, Adam Ant, and Bow Wow Wow. It could be argued that McLaren was one of the first white artist to have success as a Hip Hop artist, helping to pave the way for Eminem.



3) Ultimately, through the Malcolm McLaren song, it is a reference to the song 'Buffalo Gals' performed by many artists, which was first published under the name 'Lubly Fan' by a black faced American performer, in the 1840s, named John Hodges.

Vicki Lawrence – The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia Lyrics 1 year ago
@[jeffrey111:33758] Again, Seth is the brother, NOT the Amos boy. The exchange in the bar was Seth and Andy talking:

Andy Wolloe said "Hello"
And he said "Hi, what's doin', Wo?"
"Seth, sit down, I got some bad news, it's gonna hurt"
He said "I'm your best friend and you know that's right"

Andy tells Seth to sit down so he can give him bad news a time honoured custom that make bad news much easier to take.

I will agree that it is possible that his wife wasn't a whore, maybe both infidelities were accidents (she slipped and fell...), and it's also possible that good 'ol boy Seth is not an alcoholic whose default is to hit the local watering hole when returning home.....but I'd bet against both interpretations.

I do completely agree about the sister not confessing to the murder(s) she committed. Even a kangaroo court followed by a duly held lynching should have given her enough time to say something, anything. But, to be fair, I do not live in Georgia so what do I know.

Billy Joel – The Stranger Lyrics 2 years ago
@[ItalianDJ:30648]

You put forth a very interesting alternative meaning, but I believe it is incorrect for a few reasons:

1) If your interpretation is correct the line 'did you ever let your lover see the stranger in yourself' does not seem like a perspective a man would write and, even were he to, also seems a little crass/vulgar for a lyric from this artist.

2) Based on the line 'we all have a face that we hide away forever', your interpretation assumes that every person on the planet is an unfaithful piece of human excrement. I assure you, this is not the case (though, I will concede, most deffo are).

3) Given your interpretation, why did the singer 'come home to a woman' that he 'could not recognize'? If the stranger was, indeed, not a mask worn that confused him, he should be able to recognize his cheating wife.

Again, I find your interpretation novel, inventive, and interesting but, ultimately, unlikely to be correct.

Shriekback – Fish Below The Ice Lyrics 2 years ago
Seems like sometimes the lyrics you input are not the ones loaded onto the page. Don't know why but editing does not seem to help so...

Well, the mouth is open and a noise comes out
Ain't no reason for it, just a need to shout
It's malnutrition, we could fall apart
It's never delicate, just something from the iron age

We shake it up and we break it down
The sound of a satellite saying, "Get me down"
Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down
Hear the voice of America in your home town


Well, the film is running till the film runs out
There's no point of focus, it zooms in and out
It's information and it leaves no mark
It's just as permanent as painting in the iron age

I'm plugged in and loaded
Don't forget to phone in
The self-destruct is holding
I'm counting, I'm counting, but only to three

We get it right sometimes
We shine a light sometimes
We see the fish below the ice sometimes
Stand up and fight sometimes
We get the fright sometimes
How will we ever pay the price this time?

Yeah, we shake it up and we break it down

George Michael – Kissing A Fool Lyrics 2 years ago
Nish is correct that this song is about a nascent relationship, but no women were involved with the creation of this song. As others have said George is gay and this is about him being in love with a man who was not ready to be involved in an open relationship with a man. When listened to, with this in mind, I think the whole ‘but remember this…’ section becomes much more clear.

Regardless of what the meaning he had in mind when he wrote the song, the sentiments expressed are universally applicable to any relationship regardless of the genders involved. It is brilliantly well done and, imo, the most beautiful song he has ever written...as well as the saddest, it still makes me cry every time I hear it.

Bobby Goldsboro – Honey Lyrics 4 years ago
I will agree that the song may be a little bit condecending and patronizing. It was, after all, written during a time when that was not an unusual way for a man to treat his 'little lady'. It may be archaic and slighly mysoginistic but it was not necessarily toxic.

I would also suggest you spend less time reading between the lines and actually read the lyrics. It never says he frequently laughed at her hurting herself. What it says is that he remembers ONE time when she ALMOST hurt herself.

Yes people with depression may cry, even for no reason, but people without depression cry too. If i were a stay at home wife and my husband came home unexpectedly and I were listening to this song he would definately catch me crying , possibly needlessly, because music is the one thing that can bring me to tears. For Honey it seems to have been sappy movies. Had Honey been sitting there watching Happy Days or Gilligans Island, I would be much more worried about her mental state than her crying over something that was intended to make emotional people cry.

The lyrics about the car I could easily imagine being a scene on Leave it to Beaver. He was trying to mess with her. Wrong? Maybe. But relationships are unique and while it's never happened to me I could easily see how that could be a married couples dynamic and way of playing to ease a stressful time.

I will commend you for stopping short of calling the man a monster. Yes, the puppy thing annoyed him. It would annoy me. That's called life. You get annoyed sometimes. Then, in retrospect, it becomes one of those moments that sticks with you and you wish to god that you were back there where that was the worst thing you had to live with. He is not selfish, he has flaws (i.e he is human).

The closest exposure I have ever had to depression was a bi polar ex, so my views are not coloured by the lens of it. If you can't say the same, you have my sympathy. But not everyone shares the same experience, and what one person gets from a certain lyric can be much different depending on those experiences.

k.d. lang – Constant Craving Lyrics 4 years ago
I am shocked (and slightly saddened) that no one has yet commented, let alone down rated your comment. I can only assume it is due to fear of retaliation from a delusional fanatic. Regardless, to stand idle in the face of injustice is tantamount to committing injustice yourself and that is anathema to me.

The only person whose bedroom practices should ever concern you is yours. That you think you have some authority to weigh in morally about any other persons is ludicrous and nonsensical. Even had you such authority, this really isn't the forum for it.

More importantly, as disgusting as it is that someone would judge the work of a person (a person they do not even know) based off of their personal idelogy, it is even more repulsive for same said person to twist the message of that piece of work to suit their own self serving agenda.

P.S. You spelt your name wrong, the U should be after the N.
