    Before I knew of the Eraserhead connection, I always thought the song was the ultimate fuck-you-but-I-still-love-you song.

    It's like the speaker wants to reassure himself and his partner that he'll be just effin fine without her, but it's clear as the song continues that he is really not fine, and will never be okay. He wants to make peace with the situation, but he can't, and that is very bitter to him.

    The turn at the middle, when he changes, "You got your good thing, and I got mine" to "You got your good thing, and YOU got mine," is genius. The wistful tune and screaming (frustration/agony) really puts across a powerful message of a person who cannot let go as much as they want to.

    wooooooooooo, pixies rule......... from the film Eraserhead, by david lynch......... everyone should watch it, and then you can be just like the pixies... hahahalalala erm, according to the credits of the film a guy called peter ivers originally wrote the lyrics so Full credit to him! pixies changed the music though. to me this song is about, love and hope and driffting away into maddness or death which ever comes first.

    This song is about suicide. In the film, whenever Jack looks at the radiator it is supposed to symbolize Jack thinking about suicide. So the lady in the radiator is an angel telling him that once he gets to heaven everything will be ok and all will be forgiven (the worms/umbilical cords represent sin; specifically his sin of premarital sex).

    I don't think that very many things in my life will compare to how I felt when the Pixies opened their set with this on the 24th.

    Amazing cover. Relatively obscure aswell.

    He goes amazingly psychotic during some live versions of it.

    i love this movie, and this song. i didn't hear the whole pixies output til i got emusic and was suprised they did it. Not for any reason mind.

    BTW it does make a lot of sense, a couple have premarital sex and she gives birth to an alien premature baby ('oh you are sick') there is a tape machine at the start- they have 'eraser heads' too.

    Eraserhead reminds me of Current93/Nurse with wound.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
