Citizen Cope – Sideways Lyrics 16 years ago
His voice is so unique. I heard this song at the end of a Scrubs episode and just knew it was Citizen Cope. Great song.

Doves – Black And White Town Lyrics 16 years ago
I sort of agree with gish05. It sounds like he is talking to somebody though. Seems like he recognizes that somebody else is bored ("colorless") and he's inviting him/her to go with him elsewhere... he's got the chance and now he's gotta act and take advantage of it.

Regina Spektor – Us Lyrics 17 years ago
beautiful song. I love the whole concept of the world edifying love by making a statue. what the speaker and her significant other had was so awesome and profound that they immortalized it. It's also great that the love is contagious and catching. They're going to spread it throughout and get "blamed for it." Though the line with "den of thieves" makes it sound like the love is being stolen, i prefer not to think of it that way. Love can't be stolen. :) it grows and is spread to others.

Jurassic 5 – Monkey Bars Lyrics 17 years ago
Wow. I've had this album for a while, but this morning was the first time I actually listened to this song carefully. What a gem! Much better than their other hit, "what's golden."

Rufus Wainwright – The One You Love Lyrics 17 years ago
I love how Rufus is able to twine so many themes around love and all its aspects.

The coolest line by far in this "I'm only the one you love." How sarcastic is that? How could you say to a loved one, I'm only the one you love. Not anything important, or significant. just the one you love. Makes it sound like love isn't anything great. . Feeling underappreciated, insecure (especially when he asks am I only the one you love?), jealousy (want you to make love to me and only to me) and helpless (though empowered at the same time).. All things that are experienced eventually through love. Such a great song. My favorite from the CD too.

Best line musically on the whole album is when he goes, "OHHhh Jerusalem, Ohh jerusalem". hehe

Tahiti 80 – Wallpaper for the Soul Lyrics 17 years ago
I think I read on the Tahiti 80 website that they named their 2nd album Wallpaper for the Soul because that's what they thought music was. It papers the soul and makes it colorful and different and unique.

haha, but I'm not quite sure how that exactly fits in with the music! O_o

Tahiti 80 – 1,000 Times Lyrics 17 years ago
I really hope that when I am in love, this is how I will feel about my loved one... also hope that this is how he'll feel about me. No matter what, there will be no giving up, even if it takes another 1,000 times. :)

Tahiti 80 – Heartbeat Lyrics 17 years ago
My favorite tahiti 80 song I think. (very close to 1,000 times). Meaning is self explanatory, I imagine. I love how he pronounces "enough", with the stress on the opposite syllable. :P

The Shins – So Says I Lyrics 17 years ago
wow i never thought of this way. awesome analysis guys. I'll have to make sure to see the video now.

The Fiery Furnaces – Blueberry Boat Lyrics 17 years ago
I always want to know all of the words to Fiery Furnaces songs. Probably because they make sense, but are so awesome anyway. :) THat being said, I don't really know what this song is about :P

Wilco – Jesus, Etc. Lyrics 17 years ago
wow. what great comments. I never realized that this song is so obviously about the wtc disasters. I always listened to this song and I was struck by how nobody ever tells Jesus not to cry, and how someone should be there for him too. Especially during his crucifixion. I'm not a religoius person at all, it's strange that's the one thing I always thought of.

Badly Drawn Boy – File Me Away Lyrics 17 years ago
Haha. I disagree. I think the do do dos and the la la las are fun parts that just fit.. sometimes i regard the do dos as part of the music, and not even as a vocal line.

I like the 3 lines that he actually sings. Keep me in your heart, he says. how cute

The Dresden Dolls – Coin-Operated Boy Lyrics 17 years ago
..... ummm. please. give amanda more credit. I don't think this song is as literal as you make it out to be. i don't think it's about a dildo or a sextoy.. but more about domination over a guy, and not being emotionally controlled by one or reliant on one. it's about not being disappointed, and about not being hurt continually.

Fiona Apple – Extraordinary Machine Lyrics 17 years ago
haha what a quirky song. I love it! I really can't wait til her new album comes out. This song reminds me a bit of Regina Spektor. A good bit of you guys should like her too if you like Fiona.

a great exclamatory song. so confident.

Rufus Wainwright – Agnus Dei Lyrics 17 years ago
A very interesting song for Rufus to sing, given its implications. Why Catholicism of all things? especially something so sacred...

I think this is an interesting song to put on Want Two. I also love that it's on the same album with Gay Messiah and Old Whore's Diet. Vocals are so awesome. Really shows off what a great, expressive and effortless voice he has.

Neil Sedaka – Love Will Keep Us Together Lyrics 17 years ago
i thought captain and tenille sang this song?? nevertheless, what a fun song.. the beat and the refrain. all so good

The Dresden Dolls – Mrs. O. Lyrics 17 years ago
ah. a really good song, actually. I like most of their upbeat ones more, but the live version of this is awesome. The melody line is so catchy. the lyrics, as always are also great.

The Dresden Dolls – Coin-Operated Boy Lyrics 17 years ago
i saw them live and they are SO amazing. And penatr8 is right, she does say fuck him in the ass, instead of take him in the bath. it is so hilarious.

she had such an intensity throughout the whole show, it was amazing.

Interpol – Evil Lyrics 17 years ago
I think this song and c'mere are the best ones on the newest album.. i really didn't care for too much of the rest. (Though I've only given it a few listens so i could be speaking too early)

Interpol – Obstacle 2 Lyrics 17 years ago
whoah. I agree with bamargero, one of the best songs on the album. i love the opening lines to he song. So fll of imagery, and the line about toasting the snow.. who says that??? toasting snow? it's awesome

The Von Bondies – C'mon C'mon Lyrics 17 years ago
The only thing about this song is that it doesn't reach as high of a climax I would like it to. The end is a bit redeeming, but I'm left wanting mooooooore.

The Von Bondies – C'mon C'mon Lyrics 17 years ago
hehe what Tristax! said!
It's so upbeat and i just want to run around my room with it.

The Fiery Furnaces – Straight Street Lyrics 17 years ago
what an awesome song on an awesome album. there is just so much in the music, you can never get bored.

Rufus Wainwright – One Man Guy (Loudon Wainwright III cover) Lyrics 17 years ago
I love this song more and more everytime I hear it. It's funny.. It took me a while to realize how great it was though. It's so.. not his other stuff. It's so simple and not over the top (Though I love that he is over the top). I agree with the others. His voice is so beautiful in this. Such a smooth texture in this song.

Regina Spektor – Love Affair Lyrics 17 years ago
mmmm. Regina Spektor is so friggin amazing. I wish all her albums were released and ready for me to buy. She has such witty lyrics and great music.

The Dresden Dolls – Bad Habit Lyrics 17 years ago
one of the best off of their self titled album

the best line of this song is where so goes "I've tried vaseliiiiiiiine." i love how amanda just belts it out.

Something Corporate – Me And The Moon Lyrics 17 years ago
Favorite sone from North.
i think it's pretty obvious this song is about suicide. This woman, extremely unhappy with her marriage/relatinoship. All she got was a daughter after 17 years. She's all alone, just with the moon. If you read through the lyrics, it makes sense.

As for the butterfly analogy. I think in this song, it just represents that after she is dead, she has no worries, she is happiest. and along with happiness comes beauty. Alive, and entrapped in the cocoon of her marriage, she was unhappy, alone and miserable. She's released from that after she pulls the trigger. She's a butterfly.

Remy Zero – Perfect Memory Lyrics 17 years ago
I agree with the starlightfading. The way he sings "helped me lift my pain into the air" is breathtaking. I always have to pause everything and make everyone shut up so I can revel in the glory of that part.

Rufus Wainwright – Vibrate Lyrics 17 years ago
One of the more simpler songs on this album. It's cute, endearing, and i'm sure the actual meaning is pretty clear. My favorite part of this song is the bass plucking that underlies pretty much the whole thing. Seems to go perfectly with the song. :)

Rufus Wainwright – Go or Go Ahead Lyrics 17 years ago
Rufus' latest album is absolutely fantastic. This song is just one example of how wonderful it is.

I think this song ties up and exhibits all the aspects of heartache that can be associated with love. Uncertainty being hurt, and the one hurting your loved one, betrayal, regret, frustration. .. How is Rufus able to capture all of this in one six and a half minute song?

The Shins – Saint Simon Lyrics 17 years ago
I feel as if this is a song about growing up. Growing up and being hardened. When you're little you're so able to lie to yourself or have others lie to you about the harsh nature of things. I think this song is about growing up, realizing things might suck, but then developing an air of apathy to deal with things.

The chorus: Definitely shows growing up, and the lines in the second verse about apathy and not giving in supports my last point, I think.

I'll try hard not to pretend
Allow myself no mock defense
step into the night

Lipps, Inc. – Funkytown Lyrics 17 years ago
haha, I'm surprised there are no comments for this song...
How groovy is it?? Sooo groovy. The beat is so great, and the introductory medley is damn catchy.

Radiohead – Idioteque Lyrics 17 years ago
One of my favorite Radiohead songs.. Though it seems so atypical.

Ben Folds Five – Kate Lyrics 17 years ago
You can buy it actually. There's Ben Folds Five piano book out. Search for it on B and N or amazon. I ordered it offline for about 20 bucks.. the arrangements are pretty good. Some of them are exactly what Ben plays.

Counting Crows – Sullivan Street Lyrics 17 years ago
I like what tito posted.

"Take the way home that leads back to Sullivan St.
Where I'm just another rider burned to the ground
Come tumbling down "

That says it all right there. By far, the best song on this album, and possibly the best ouf of all their albums.

Van Morrison – Moondance Lyrics 17 years ago
haha. I have to comment again. I think i'm going to have this played at my wedding. :P

Britney Spears – Toxic Lyrics 18 years ago
I must say. Britney Spears is so super hot.
I can't help but like this song.. what a guilty pleasure.

Daft Punk – Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger Lyrics 18 years ago
You should have sex to this song. :P
Look at all the innuendos. I agree with nfgmaniac. Discovery is a pretty awesome album.

The Dresden Dolls – Girl Anachronism Lyrics 18 years ago
What an insane song. The disorder in it is amazing, especially when offset by rare snippets of recognizable melody. This song is what really got me into The Dresden Dolls. I bet they're amazing live.

The Postal Service – Such Great Heights Lyrics 18 years ago
The opening lines to this song are the greatest.

I was thinking it's a sign that the freckles
in our eyes are mirror images and when
we kiss they're perfectly aligned

Isn't that imagery great? How great is it, when you realize that the person you're holding in your arms is just perfect in his or her imperfections? That you just fit together and complement in so many ways.

Cream – Sunshine Of Your Love Lyrics 18 years ago
Have you ever heard Ella Fitzgerald's cover?? It's so groovy, though peculiar given the rock to jazz conformation.

Jurassic 5 – What's Golden Lyrics 18 years ago
What a grooovy band. The chorus to this song is incredibly catchy.

I love Marc 7even's first stanze. Especially the bit with the participle.

"We tight like dreadlocks or red fox and ripple
We pass participles, and smash the artist in you "

How clever and unique is the inflection in the way he sings that?

Kara's Flowers – Myself Lyrics 18 years ago
Ah. One of my favorites by kara's flowers.

Maroon 5 – Sunday Morning Lyrics 18 years ago
I second what JBobert said. :)

I feel like this song is one of the more cheerful songs on this album. Not that, the other songs are particularly meloncholy-- but the lyrics, and the emotion behind this one seems to me, to be particularly light and happy.

Local H – Bound For The Floor Lyrics 18 years ago
copacetic is such a cool word... The only song I know that uses this word.

Bush – Letting The Cables Sleep Lyrics 18 years ago
There is a great remix of this on the seventh volume of the Cafe Del Mar collections.

The Doors – Break on Through (To the Other Side) Lyrics 18 years ago
I love the opening lines to this song.. I was wandering around campus, and someone had written them in really big chalk letters on one of the walls of a parking garage.. I came home that night, and downloaded it, and I've liked this song since. :D

Eurythmics – Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) Lyrics 18 years ago
Hmm. I'm with weezerific.. I never realized how little lyrics there were in this either.. Perhaps the music made up for it? =)

Maroon 5 – She Will Be Loved Lyrics 18 years ago
It’s not always rainbows and butterflies
It’s compromise that moves us along

These lines are so great and so true.. i quote it everywhere.

Maroon 5 – This Love Lyrics 19 years ago
Same here. I danced around my room to it this morning. :D
I love ths way they sing the chorus.

"This love has taken its toll on me
She said Goodbye too many times before
And her heart is breaking in front of me
I have no choice cause I won’t say goodbye anymore"

It's awesome.
