The War On Drugs – Under the Pressure Lyrics 4 years ago
Maybe it's a good song, but with so many versions of the lyrics out there I think Adam owes us the accurate lyrics before we jump to conclusions.

George Harrison – Who Can See It Lyrics 4 years ago
Possibly the greatest song ever written. But to love it you have to have lived and still want to live and at the same time know how to die.

What a song! What sadness. What a triumph! Up there with Handel's Messiah.

How do you do it in three minutes? Beats me. Harrison is the god he searched for all his life.

Pink Floyd – Comfortably Numb Lyrics 4 years ago
How many songs do you turn off because the devil is in them? I'm not trying to be smart, I get it, just that it's OK to listen to other people's pain without it affecting your likelihood of ever going there. The word is "theatre" - and it has been around on this planet for as long as humans have been suffering.

Pink Floyd – Comfortably Numb Lyrics 4 years ago
Impossible to top. One of the greats of its kind. If you don't know what it's about, you haven't heard it right. Think PAIN.

Lennon's "Cold Turkey" (vastly underrated) is about three minutes before he gives in and this song kicks in.

Leonard Cohen – Hallelujah Lyrics 4 years ago
I am so sorry, but I cannot listen to this song. It is everything the meaning of the word Hallelujah! is not, that is, low key and mindlessly dull and desperate. I know I am in the minority - I adore Cohen's early stuff - but this? Horrible, absolutely horrible, horrible.

Paul Simon – The Boy in the Bubble Lyrics 4 years ago
The song, to me, is about the sadness of being a little speck of a human on a rock in the sky. And the juxtaposition of all the killing and unkindness and plundering going on with the advances in medicine and technology trying to do so much good. "The way we look to us all" is a superb line - trying to find meaning in each other - as if the technology we develop is part of our deepest desires.

It starts off so scarily strange but ends in a mood of acceptance. It's a religious song without god in it, achingly hard to write, but not for a Paul Simon. If I believed in genius, this would come close.

Christine Anu – Sunshine On A Rainy Day Lyrics 4 years ago
One of my favourite songs of all time. Deceptively simple - it offers the most amazing scope to a soaring female voice like Anu's.

Very difficult to write something like this. The temptation is to build it up instead of strip it all away. Dylan's Like A Rolling Stone is the only other "I feel' song that, for me, has the same emotive power, but Dylan can build up anything he wants and I'm sucked in. This song is content to be simple and trippy and, it just tears me up every time.
