Procol Harum – A Whiter Shade of Pale Lyrics 14 years ago
OK, I finally got frustrated and looked this up. All your answers can be found here:
You can thank me later.
By the way, the lyrics listed on this site are bogus and don't even make any sense. "At first her face just Rosie"? Blech.

Steve Miller Band – Take The Money And Run Lyrics 16 years ago
This song kicks ass if for no other reason than because it successfully rhymes
"facts is"
and "taxes".

Steve Miller Band – The Joker Lyrics 16 years ago
He ripped "space cowboy" and "pompitous of love" off of his earlier songs. And "pompitous of love" was itself ripped off of some old-time blues guy. As Starbug says, it was a made-up term that Miller got wrong. I unfortunately don't remember the name of the original artist or his song, but I found it awhile ago by searching in Google.

Steve Miller Band – Fly Like An Eagle Lyrics 16 years ago
I think this song is about the US Post Office.

Toto – Africa Lyrics 16 years ago
Why do they compare Kilimanjaro to Olympus? So they are saying that a mountain is like... another mountain? How creative. And what is "solitary company"? Isn't that an oxymoron?

Toto – Rosanna Lyrics 16 years ago
It's about Rosanna Arquette.
And that's it.

Peter Gabriel – Solsbury Hill Lyrics 16 years ago
This song is about Peter's leaving Genesis and about his soul-searching and speaking to God and asking Him what to do. (My friends would think I was a nut/turning water into wine) Towards the end, he was all wishy washy and they kept getting replacements for him for various reasons but he couldn't finally break free. The machinery represents the music industry.

Concrete Blonde – Still in Hollywood Lyrics 16 years ago
I agree penumbra that version is better!

Concrete Blonde – Tomorrow, Wendy (Andy Prieboy cover) Lyrics 16 years ago
That live version, by the way, is on the "Still In Hollywood" album. Great album.

Concrete Blonde – Tomorrow, Wendy (Andy Prieboy cover) Lyrics 16 years ago
This isn't from the viewpoint of someone who doesn't believe in God. This is someone who is angry at God, and doesn't believe in some people's interpretations of God.
How can you be angry at God if you're an atheist?
It's the old question - how can God be benevolent and all powerful, and allow pain and suffering of innocents?

Pink Floyd – Run Like Hell Lyrics 16 years ago
Just another PF song about oppression.
This song reminds me of 1984 where the guy had to sneak around just to have a girlfriend. Hide your feelings from Big Brother!

Pink Floyd – Money Lyrics 16 years ago
I thought this was about the Wizard of Oz? Nevermind...

Pink Floyd – Time Lyrics 16 years ago
This song is lyrical genius. GENIUS!
I just turned 30 last month.
And it seems like I was 20 just yesterday.
Everything is the same, but different.
And time really does seem faster.
The time between age 10 and 20 seems like a million years, but between 20 and 30 seems like it just flies by.

ABBA – Mamma Mia Lyrics 16 years ago
This is the best ABBA song!

Blondie – One Way or Another Lyrics 16 years ago
Stalking before stalking was fashionable

Blondie – Union City Blue Lyrics 16 years ago
I think this is about Union City, New Jersey, which is across Hudson River from New York City. Maybe about a guy she had a relationship with from there?

Blondie – Heart of Glass Lyrics 16 years ago
This song is about thinking you are in love, and how a relationship can suck but you are in denial because you don't want it to end. When you think you're in love, everything is great. But when a relationship ends, it turns out that your heart wasn't as strong as you thought. And in between, everything is fine.

Blondie – Detroit 442 Lyrics 16 years ago
442 was one of the last "real" American cars.
A big steel gas-guzzler from detroit.
This is just about a chick who wants to rebel and get with a guy in a cool car.
My question is, who is Jimmy O?

Pixies – River Euphrates Lyrics 16 years ago
It's ride a Tiger, probably a play on the words Tigris & Euphrates. I don't think it seems to be about anything except the Middle East.

Pixies – Distance Equals Rate Times Time Lyrics 16 years ago
I think he's saying that people should turn off their TV's and look at science and nature and space, which is more fascinating than any TV show. That's just what I've inferred from his interviews and things.

Pixies – Wave of Mutilation Lyrics 16 years ago
I agree with this being about self-destruction, but not suicide. "You think I'm dead, but I sail away". It's like, if life has you down and everything sucks, then instead of suicide which is permanent you can just throw away everything that's holding you down and create a new life.
