Hot Hot Heat – Bandages Lyrics 16 years ago
The reason this song is so catchy, is the same reason all their songs are. They quick reptitions of the lyrics just gets stuck in your head. The thing is, it doesn't take away from the song like most of the other bands. HHH owns my soul.

Hot Hot Heat – 5 Times Out of 100 Lyrics 16 years ago
HHH is just raw. I got into them a few months ago, and this song along with "Oh Goddamnit" just stick with me.

NOTE: I'm not from BC, nor Canada for that matter.

The Ataris – Radio #2 (2003) Lyrics 16 years ago
It's kind of Ironic that this song is on their album with a single on MTV :-/ Go figure...

The Ataris – My Reply Lyrics 16 years ago
I absolutly love this song, probably Kris's best written song with Angry Nerd Rock, it's just....WOW. And when you read the letter it makes it that much more heartfelt.

gds, you are correct on that. I just looked in the book and it reads, "All songs written by Willam Cofgan, except 'Soma' and 'Mayonaise' written by William Corgan/James Iha

Thursday – I Am The Killer Lyrics 17 years ago
I think this song is related to Dying in New Jersey. If you don't know what the song is about, check it out.

Thursday – This Side Of Brightness Lyrics 17 years ago
This song is by far the best Thursday song around. If only I could find the album. Full Collapse is great with "Paris in Flames" and "Standing on the Edge of Summer" but Waiting just blows it out of the water. "Dying in New Brunswick", this song, "Porcelain", and "Where the Circle Ends". How can you not love it?

Better Than Ezra – Beautiful Mistake Lyrics 17 years ago
This song is one of BTE's best. It's not as great as At the Stars, but it is far more emotional and hits the heart in compleltly different way. Kevin is a great lyricist, and this shows his talents with ease.

submissions
Nickelback – Too Bad Lyrics 17 years ago
If y'all think this song is emotional, check out Better than Ezra "Beautiful Mistake." Kevin Griffin (who's a better song writer in my opinion) wrote the song about what happened to his college roomate at LSU. It's a similar topic, and it's a great song. Check it out.

Brand New – Seventy Times 7 Lyrics 17 years ago
I think the screaming in the back ground is missing. It sounds to me like... Fuck you, Fuck you, I hope you fucking die. Fuck you, fuck you, you let me down again.

Better Than Ezra – Porcelain Lyrics 17 years ago
Good call, Imp, I wouldn't have caught that connection otherwise. The poem is far more depressing than this song though (killing the girl with her own hair).

The Juliana Theory – I Didn't Mean To Break Your Heart Lyrics 17 years ago
Juliana has said they are NOT a christian band like their former set-up as Zao. Though the guys are Christian, the song meanings are not religion-related like in the past. The Juliana Theory deals more with the harse nature of reality and relationships. They just broke up with thier old label (reason there was only 6 songs on Music from Another Room) and have signed a deal with Epic I believe.

R.E.M. – Saturn Return Lyrics 17 years ago
I'm with you there Render. This song gives me chills when I listen to it. It's so, well PERFECT. This and Monty got a Raw Deal are my two favorite R.E.M. songs.

Gin Blossoms – Mrs. Rita Lyrics 17 years ago
I was in Phoenix about a week ago, and as I was coming back from the Diamond Backs game I saw "Miss Rita's Palm and Tarot readings" which was the basis for the title of this song.`

Nine Inch Nails – Closer Lyrics 17 years ago
I really like Baby Jane's interepretation of this song. It seems to make sense. As for why this song made them popular, it was the video. The video is one of the top 3 best videos of all time and it made all the posers say, "OMG NIN ROXXORS MY BOXXORS!!" Anyway, Head Like a Hole is better, but "Something I Can Never Have" is still the best |\| 1 |/| song.

Avril Lavigne – Sk8er Boi Lyrics 17 years ago
Something Corporate = Post-punk, Saves the Day = post punk Blink = Pop, Sum = Pop, Avril = buble gum pop. Punk rock at it's core is dead! The last truly PUNK band was NOFX and well, they are gone! Hell, I'm reluctant to call them punk. Punk died years ago, it wasn't the music, it was the MESSAGE. It was "fuck everyone else, this about me getting my point across, everyone has it wrong, it's not making money, it's about being unconventional." That message is dead. You can be a "non-conformer" all you want, but your still conforming to that piece of society. Punks exists in individual minds who don't know what they are, but they know they aren't society. Unfortunatly, with the rise of NFG, Blink, Green Day, etc, you get "Punks" in society! Face it, PUNK IS DEAD.

Collective Soul – December Lyrics 17 years ago
This song is amazing, and everyone has heard it, they just don't know it by the band or Title. I agree with Csoulman on the meaning. It's definitly about the demise of a friendship/relationship.

Is it possible that the "stomp/stop a baby's breath" could symbolize an abortion? It would make sense.

Led Zeppelin – Stairway to Heaven Lyrics 17 years ago
Ramthar is 100% correct on this. The song is not ABOUT Lord of the Rings, it simply has parts that coincide. The guy who said it was about the cult, was partially correct. Lord of the Rings was based on Celtic Mythology (The original inhabitants of Ireland) and Plant was a large fan of the subject. Thus through Lord of the Rings, the most popular book ever) he was able to make a connection to his fascinations that people could understand. In short, the song is an allusion to an allusion!

Incubus – Aqueous Transmission Lyrics 17 years ago
Blue, I understand what you see in it, but I agree with the people who made the comparison to him on a bus. I think he may have written this song while on tour for Make Yourself. He is "floating" because he didn't get to pick the dates or the venues, the label made all the decisions, the label is guiding him where he is going, no matter what. "Further down the river" refers to him getting further and further from his girlfriend (well, ex now).

Incubus – 11am Lyrics 17 years ago
I know exactly what you mean, Kdog. When your alone, you don't have anyone to care for, so your happiness comes before all others. You only do things for yourself, never for anyone else.

submissions
Jack Johnson – Posters Lyrics 17 years ago
I think this is probably my favorite song on the album. Bubble Toes and Inaudible Memories are pretty close though. Like Anna said, I believe it's more about peer pressure and trying to fit in than trying to be someone else. It's true that often when you are trying to fit in you change some of your little quirks, but I think this song is more of the little things, the right clothes, the right hair style, not so much your actions.

Taking Back Sunday – The Blue Channel Lyrics 17 years ago
Does anyone know what the musical intro to this song is from? It sounds familiar, like a cover of a song from 20-30 years ago that I just can't put my finger on.

Umm, Jimmy Olson's Blues was also a hit. Therefore, they are the ultimate TWO-HIT wonders

Elton John – Someone Saved My Life Tonight Lyrics 17 years ago
Ernest, I believe "Sugar Bear" is Elton's songwriter (I can't remember his name). The reason he told Elton not to get married is because he figured it would go against his stage appearance where he was always dressed very flamboyantly.

submissions
The White Stripes – This Protector Lyrics 17 years ago
I think the point is about a friend being your "protector." Whenever something goes wrong, they are the one you turn to for help. However, I think the actual song is about someone who's paranoid and this person doing whatever they can to comfort them.

Yellowcard – October Nights Lyrics 17 years ago
This song is such a perfect description of what being with a loved one is like. There is no better way to put it.

Also, does anyone have the lyrics to "Time Will Tell?" It may not be the name of the song, but it's what Kazaa had it listed as.

submissions
Yellowcard – Rough Draft Lyrics 17 years ago
Abou the "in lieu of this" dilema. The expression can also mean, despite. I guess that's where the problem is. Many of you are taking it to the dictionary meaning, but the semantic range adds that aspect. So basically, it's "you're leaving me, despite this song".

submissions
Yellowcard – Star Struck Lyrics 17 years ago
I'm hitting the bandwagon kinda late here, but I just heard this song for the first time (first Yellowcard song I've heard) and it's fucking amazing. If the other songs I download are half as good as this one, I'm buying the CD this weekend.

Toad the Wet Sprocket – Walk On The Ocean Lyrics 17 years ago
Fallacies, listen to a song like Good Intentions, Whatever I fear, or even All I Want and you will definitly hear an EMO sound. One of the guys from The Get Up Kids even said that Toad was one of his favorite bands of all time. That should say something right there.

submissions
Toad the Wet Sprocket – All I Want Lyrics 17 years ago
You know, I think EVERY single person in the World has heard this song, and maybe 3000 people know who it is by. It's freaking unbelievable. This song is just unbeatable as a pop rock song, and it's not even all that poppy.

submissions
Toad the Wet Sprocket – Walk On The Ocean Lyrics 17 years ago
Toad is amazing I must say. Listen to a song like "Whatever I Fear" and you can see so much about yourself in it. In my opinion, they are the first true EMO band, despite not being a punk band.

Also, if you like Toad, check out Glen Phillips solo stuff. Some of it is just mind blowing.

Something Corporate – (Hurricane) The Formal Weather Pattern Lyrics 17 years ago
All of you are saying this song is about a crush, but I really don't think it's that. I do think that he wants to be with her, but I think it's something different. I think he hooked up with this girl, and that's when he discovered he wanted her. Now it's the morning after and he is saying that he's afraid she's gonna say, "It was just a little thing. Nothing important" type of thing. Almost like a one night stand. Look at the chorus, "So Don’t Say “These currents are still killing me” and you can’t explain how the wind went and pulled you into the hurricane." Basically, he's saying, "Don't tell me it doesn't matter, that you were just too drunk to make a decision. Tell me you love me the way I love you." So, yes, it's about him wanting this girl, but I think it's on a much different scale then a simple crush.

Taking Back Sunday – Cute Without The 'E' (Cut From The Team) Lyrics 17 years ago
Royal, I really don't think it's "other than you". I know that's what it says in the jacket, but if you listen it sounds like "from that day on"

submissions
Jimmy Eat World – For Me This Is Heaven Lyrics 17 years ago
I somewhat agree with Emo12punk12metal on this one. I think the song is about getting together, not breaking up. The person in the song is debating whether or not to take that risk of asking the other one out. The key words are Courage and Butterflies. Yes there is that "Last Goodnight" but I think that is the person remembering all the times they shared together as friends, BEFORE something they got involved.

submissions
Alkaline Trio – Another Innocent Girl Lyrics 17 years ago
I don't know if it's about him being violent. I think the guy in the song is trying to get people to pity him. He tried to commit suicide by hurting himself (the scar, the hurt back). The thing is, he never really wanted to kill himself, he just wanted attention. The innocent girl is the one that pitied him. She's being drawn in because he is lying to himself, and to everyone else about his depression.

submissions
Counting Crows – Speedway Lyrics 17 years ago
I agree with Shiver. I think this song is like a more melodic version of Hangingaround. In both songs Adam just wants to escape, get out of the town where society is causing him all this pressure, but something or someone is holding him back.

submissions
Counting Crows – High Life Lyrics 17 years ago
This is also one of my favorite CC songs, but I think it has a different meaning. I think it's about Adam not wanting to be alone, searching for that one person that can make him happy. But at the same time he's afraid to try. The ffirst verse kind of shows you that he's lonely. "All my friends got flowers in their eyes, but I got none this season." Basically all his friends got new girlfriends, but he's still alone. The chorus goes, "Waiting here for you, I'm wanting to tell you how I get my ends and my beginnings mixed up too just the way you do. I thought if I told you, you might want to stay for just another day or two." I think he's got this close friend that he wants to be with, but she doesn't want to.

submissions
Dashboard Confessional – The Good Fight Lyrics 17 years ago
Truthsayer has a point, but I think the only way to know if it is about religion is whether or not Championless is ACTUALLY Capitalized in Chris's lyric sheet. Just because it is here doesn't mean it is there. A capital letter would signify it as a proper noun, much like many poets use Lamb when speaking of Jesus.

submissions
Counting Crows – Catapult Lyrics 17 years ago
Sharkyy, 90% of Adam's lyrics are extremely sad songs disguised as simply calm and melancholy words.

Anyway, I think what REALLY makes this song is the opening with the flute. That is one of the most beautiful intros to a song EVER!

Further Seems Forever – The Bradley Lyrics 17 years ago
I just noticed something. In the second verse there is a "Or ever will" after "A clarity I've never seen." I also think it's SINCE not Seems in the same verse. Someone check me on this.

Ben Folds Five – Smoke Lyrics 17 years ago
I have to agree, it's definitly about a bad break-up. Haven't you ever heard o people burning pictures and other things that remind them of relationships?

The Bible thing does work in a sense, but the other meaning has more to back it up.

I agree with hy92, the Shadow is before half a man.

Oasis – Wonderwall Lyrics 17 years ago
This song is about not being able to act on your feelings. The girl (probably a friend of the guy) that the song is about means the world to the guy, but he's unable to express his love in fear of what may happen to their friendship if he does. I've been in the situation before and it's hard. You are afraid to say anything personal, and even more afraid of not say anything.

submissions
Cowboy Mouth – Love of My Life Lyrics 17 years ago
The lyrics probably have lots of flaws in them as I did it while constantly listening to the song over and over again, and there are many parts where Fred just starts screaming random things.

submissions
Better Than Ezra – Closer Lyrics 17 years ago
I think the reason he's scared is not for the child, but rather for himself. He's worried that he can't be a good father, or worse yet, that he won't be there to watch the child grow up.
