Guided by Voices – Pretty Bombs Lyrics 18 years ago
This song is so great. Perfect pop, courtesy Robert Pollard. This is probably my favorite off this album and Brides Have Hit Glass is my favorite off Isolation Drills. I still have a lot of Guided By Voices Albums to go, though.

Pavement – We Dance Lyrics 18 years ago
"Brazilian nuts for your engagement"--my favorite band in the world.

Pavement – Major Leagues Lyrics 18 years ago
What a gorgeous Pavement song--Malkmus was in his prime.

Pavement – The Hexx Lyrics 18 years ago
Creepiest song in the world-I love it.

Pavement – Harness Your Hopes Lyrics 18 years ago
Great lyrics on this one "Show me-a word that ryhmes with Pavement-and I will kill your parents-and roast them on a spit!" The second I find a girl who gets this!

Pavement – Folk Jam Lyrics 18 years ago
I quote "Irish folk tales scare the shit out of me" a lot

Pavement – You Are A Light Lyrics 18 years ago
This is the eeriest love song ever--probably my favorite Pavement song. I've listened to Terror Twilight a billion times and I think I'll always claim it as my favorite album of all time--"Watch out for for the gypsy children in electric dresses they're insane, I hear they live in creamatoriums and smoke your remains, you are the li hi hi hi ihgt, the calm in the day! YEAH (guitar solo)

Phish – It's Ice Lyrics 18 years ago
Come on--Rift is a great album, probably my favorite studio album--well, maybe Ghost.

Beulah – Gene Autry Lyrics 18 years ago
Between Beulah and Quasi, I listen to some pretty disturbing music--it's all sunshine candy kitten yum yum sounds with bleak abstract imagery--I love my twisted world!

Built to Spill – Distopian Dream Girl Lyrics 18 years ago
My aristocracy consists of :
Built To Spill
Death Cab For Cutie
The Sea And Cake

sure I love plenty of other band, but these four are sacred, and sacrifice cats to them regularly. I don't really care for Modest Mouse though.

Death Cab for Cutie – Amputations Lyrics 18 years ago
I believe it is an exerpt from speech on why communism won't work-"If we seem nutty to you and if we seem funny to you, just remember the mighty oak tree was once a nut just like me" in the beginning and "I pray to god that one day he will grant me the power to reach out to people and give instant relief, cause you don't have instant relief. We been lied to so many times, that your suspicious mind, and when the right thing comes along, you don't believe in it. In this modern day and age we have instant coffee and instant tea--it is the reason we will never have communism in this country--it is because we will never believe in ourselves we will only listen to the mass majority. If anybodies making fun of you or criticizing you, you know you're on the right track" there's some pretty crazt sounding shit in their, but I basically agree with all of it. It's funny that I declared myself an atheist, found Death Cab, and declared myself pretty much a socialist closley after. I don't know if the band are any of these things, but maybe that's just another aspect that attracted me to this band.

Built to Spill – The Weather Lyrics 18 years ago
What a beautiful song--and, again, nobody's commenting! "It might save time if I meet you there, but I don't care, I'd rather wait for you" To say that the waiting for his love give him satisfaction--it just feels right. I love using the weather as some kind emotional truth for love. And then some kid can tell me how "DEEP" Anthony Kideses lyrics are. To each his own--this is the reason I keep coming back to Built To Spill.

Built to Spill – Made-Up Dreams Lyrics 18 years ago
No one has commented on "no one wants to hear what you dreamt about unless you dreamt about them don't let that stop you/ tell them anyway and you can make it up as you go"!? Come on, this is cool shit. Granted Doug Martsch contends none of this is chosen for meaning, only for sound and phonetics, but songs like this are proof in the pudding Built To Spill have the arrangements--and the sentiment.

Death Cab for Cutie – Title Track Lyrics 18 years ago
Excellent analysis toadtws....I could not get anything out of that first verse--but I'm curious. I've heard many rumors that We Have The Facts is a concept album--does this relate the girl in Title track to all other relationships, or is this album just relationships gone wrong? Thoughts?

Death Cab for Cutie – We Laugh Indoors Lyrics 18 years ago
You know your love for a band is unhealthy when can't help but sing the lyrics as you read them...and you realize the prescise use of words makes them all the more elusive. Photo Album was my first DCFC love, but I'm currently a Facts man.--But that won't take away from my love for these songs.

Death Cab for Cutie – The Employment Pages Lyrics 18 years ago
I agree with GeeMo-definitley Ben lookin fo love--but the first billion times I heard it I thought he was talking about his band. Genius songwriting

Death Cab for Cutie – Sleep Spent Lyrics 18 years ago
I love that line "So drive away, your mouth from my ears, and waste a day, so I can think clearly"---Ben Gibbard must drink a lot of alcohol.

Death Cab for Cutie – For What Reason Lyrics 18 years ago
This was my first Death Cab Song---and it shows up on almost every best of and mix I make. The bass line, the vocal melody--everything about this band makes me happy.
