Kate Bush – The Man with the Child in His Eyes Lyrics 1 month ago

Jon English – She Was Real Lyrics 3 months ago
Give you the goosebumpies, did Jon imagine this scenario, or did he pick up a Suzie one night and write a mesmerising song about it?

submissions
The The – This Is the Day Lyrics 3 months ago
I used to play this a lot in my late twenties..to me it was about someone stuck on the dole or something..there was a lot of unemployment globally at the time and young people were affected by it. I really saw the sort of guy back than, clever, creative but going no where. This is my feeling about this song in the mid eighties.

The Beatles – Sexy Sadie Lyrics 4 months ago
@[delia17601:28748] Maybe not Sean, Steve, Shane, Stan. Sixties was such a women hating era, listen to some of the songs.

submissions
The Beatles – Sexy Sadie Lyrics 4 months ago
So it is about that guru, yet it once again is turned into a song against women..the lyrics are pretty hateful. How about Sexy Sean, because it was a dig at a man.

submissions
The Pretenders – Back On The Chain Gang Lyrics 4 months ago

Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody Lyrics 4 months ago
@[Grand1:28446] AIDs was not heard of in the seventies. Freddie often said they will get me on stage with a wheelchair when I an eighty. No one knew AiDS existed. He expected to live into his old age and still perform.

Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody Lyrics 4 months ago
I first heard it in 1975 and my mother who disliked pop music, but loved opera, went mad for it. I was not so sure. I first thought it was about a young guy, a bit of a punk who had got himself into serious trouble with the law and was fantasising to avoid facing the awful reality of what he had done. I think I will stick with my original impression all those years ago.

The Beatles – Her Majesty Lyrics 5 months ago
@[elliott109:28314] Why would Paul want to make Yoko his? He was married and always in love with Linda. It is a typical John song aimed at the Queen because he could get away with it.

Pink Floyd – Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts I - V) Lyrics 5 months ago
Syd Barrett was mentally ill from his early twenties, it broke Roger Water's heart. It is easy to put it all down to drugs but this is the age people often develop life schizophrenia.

Pretenders – Mystery Achievement Lyrics 5 months ago
@[delia17601:28127] It also could be the music scene letting her down...lots of sharks and all that.

submissions
Pretenders – Mystery Achievement Lyrics 5 months ago
One of my favourite Pretenders songs, basically the usual, a man is letting a woman down..but no one in the late seventies said it like Chrissie, not even Debbie.

Cher – Half-Breed Lyrics 6 months ago
This song came out when I was under ten, it made me aware of racism. Cannot be bad. To the commenter below, many singers will tell you songs are not directly about them. Also it is written that Cher does have Cherokee blood. Whatever, who song in the sixties was quite daring.

Rickie Lee Jones – Chuck E.'s In Love Lyrics 6 months ago
Well whoever it is about, I worked in a long stay disability hospital in the seventies and this song made the patients and us just smile. We were a young nursing crew and we loved anything happy and kind of cute as this song is.

submissions
Bobbie Gentry – Ode To Billie Joe Lyrics 6 months ago
The girl in the song, threw a ring off the bridge and quit with they boy...her rather cold family unrealising their love affair just talked trivia about the poor young guy. I believe it is a song that Bobbie imagined in her mind and put to lyrics, based on the impression of the community around her. Gossiping and uncaring.

Great song, New Zealand's alternative national anthem.
