of Montreal – Lysergic Bliss Lyrics 13 years ago
When I heard this song...(and most of Satanic Panic in the Attic) for the first time...I started laughing, I just burst out into laughter, like a victorious laughter, an excited fit of happiness that I had found such a great band and such a fantastic musical experience! That breakdown in the middle?....oh my golly!

of Montreal – Tim I Wish You Were Born a Girl Lyrics 13 years ago
It's a wonderfully sweet and endearing song...I like that Kevin Barnes isn't afraid to sing about such things...when two guys are very close in real life, things that are said by this song usually go UNSAID and I think it's beautiful to get them all out there. Everything this band does is surreal magic and I love 'em, they are worlds above a lot of music out there today...

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists – The Ballad Of The Sin Eater Lyrics 14 years ago
Ted's friends with members of the Sin Eaters--an actual band! I'm not about to make assumptions on their genre so as not to piss off any sin eater fans.
But, if I may say so, one of the most exciting moments of my life was when I got to play tambourine for this song, as it was played live! Ted handed me the tambourine! *sigh*

Death Cab for Cutie – Death of an Interior Decorator Lyrics 14 years ago
It's obvious - the story this song is trying to tell. The interesting thing I've heard is that its all based on the plot of some movie---which movie? I don't know...still trying to find it.

Ted Leo and the Pharmacists – Biomusicology Lyrics 14 years ago
This song can change your life. The opening chords are like powerful rays of sunshine, and that's just what the song is about--it's coming out into the warmth of music and simply being greeted by it--and enjoying every fucking note of it! Its learning the meaning of life through music, its learning ABOUT life through music. You can hear your life--the late night hangouts with friends, the morning walks to classes or rides to work, the lunch breaks, the rides home, the happy times and just an utter appreciation for life and music...all in this song.

The Shins – Mine's Not A High Horse Lyrics 14 years ago
Well, there's a lot of soggy, cold imagery here. Ice cubes, water, swimming and drowning. There's a lot of religous type things to be wondered about...
But most importantly, it seems he got in an argument (possibly with a girl) and that this girl's got the 'gang of friends' -all on her side, and everyone is against him on whatever the argument was about...
But the religious stuff? the ancient boat = Noah's arc? and is he the religious one, or her?
So much to answer for
Personally, I think he's against the religious right, and he's criticizing her and her high horse

Death Cab for Cutie – Blacking Out the Friction Lyrics 16 years ago
This song, possibly, is about the hardships of life, and "blacking" them out...the weather could be simbolism for it,....and scarves, caps, even sweaters, could be defense mechanisms...or the support of friends, helping him get through the day. But these defenses are pointless--it's brainless to decorate your window and assume it makes your perspective different. Once you realize this, you know "the hardest part is yet to come."

Built to Spill – The Plan Lyrics 16 years ago
My first love of Built To Spill songs...whatever...I'm too lazy to figure out what it means for now...i'll post it later....

Pavement – Passat Dream Lyrics 16 years ago
Not sure what it means--just wanted to post FIRST and say how much I love this song....and why don't they use it in a commercial for the actual car...! he comparing a girl to a car? who knows....

Elliott Smith – Bottle Up and Explode Lyrics 16 years ago
This is my new favorite Elliot Smith--song!

Death Cab for Cutie – I Was a Kaleidoscope Lyrics 16 years ago
Gibbard's is just one of the great song writers, lyrically, of our time... what bugs me about this song is that beautiful part right in the middle "this is when I forget to breath.....tells me exactly what you are thinking...." it's lovely and romantic and then he hits us so non-chellantly(sp?) with "this ain't working anymore"---pow!! oh Ben...

Death Cab for Cutie – For What Reason Lyrics 16 years ago
I'm with Eli--this is quite possibly the best song they've written....regardless of it's downer subject matter....

Radiohead – Nice Dream Lyrics 16 years ago
this, along with High and Dry and Just is a fav track from teh Bends for me....but, it's kinda disconcerting when I think about it....if you think you belong--that's nothing more than a nice's still beautiful.

Pavement – Ann Don't Cry Lyrics 16 years ago
He mentions a hospital...and peole above taking us out....and 'you never had a chance,' so is this a song to a dying lady named ann....or, did someone ann knows die--and now she's could be anything with Malkmus....

Pavement – Blue Hawaiian Lyrics 16 years ago
Definitely, my favorite pavement song...not sure what the hell it means....I could guess, but probably be wrong...oh well, I love it.

Pavement – Cut Your Hair Lyrics 16 years ago
yeah--you'd think it was about the inconsistent and annoying music industry...and how hard it is to maintain a 'career' in that....but, then again, Malkmus will swear he says "korea", not career...that crazy genius...

Pavement – Carrot Rope Lyrics 16 years ago sounds great...musically it's one of my fav pavements...but I think it's maybe it's about petafelia (or however you spell it)--"hey, little boy..."

Beulah – If We Can Land a Man on the Moon, Surely I Can Win Your Heart Lyrics 16 years ago
I think they're definitely beatles-like....which is partly why I like them so much...(i have both of their albums) and I'll give them credit...their beatles-esque sound shouldn't be their only claim to fame(if they ever get it) anyway....everyone should hear this least once...this is my favorite song from them, easily!!

Built to Spill – Car Lyrics 16 years ago
This is a great great song....easily one of my favorite BTS (possibly number 1...) and it sounds good....however, i've heard numerous interviews where Doug Martsch claims that he rarely goes for much meaning in lyrics...and is usually just putting random words to music....ever since then, it's been hard for me to find anything or get anything uot of a BTS song...(don't get me wrong....I still love 'em)

Elliott Smith – Baby Britain Lyrics 16 years ago
I think this is a song to a girl, telling her to stop being so neurotic, and to stop selling herself short. But what do I know?

Death Cab for Cutie – The Employment Pages Lyrics 16 years ago
For as pretttty as it is...I think it's about the crumbling of a relationship....and a couple fighting "the way we amplify the sound," and "I was home calling around" is him trying to get her back but, it's the break-up!
