Come on girls, ha ha ha I got something to say
She's got an alligator bag
Top hat to match
Dressed in black on black
She's got a Philipino girlie
She claims is her friend
I tell you boys you just gotta laugh
Now I used to call her Cindy
She changed her name to sin
I guess that's the name of her game
I really used to love her
Then the kitty she discovered
It's got to be a sexual thing

Now all around the world
Girls will be girls

It's the same ol', same ol' situation
It's the same ol', same ol' ball and chain

I say no, no, no
No, no, no

Come on
Now check this out
Introduced me to her lover
In a cellophane dress
Then they bid me a sweet farewell
Last time I saw them
They were kissing so softly
To the sound of wedding bells

Well, all around the world
Girls will be girls

It's the same ol', same ol' situation
It's the same ol', same ol' ball and chain
It's the same ol', same ol' situation
It's the same ol', same ol' ball and chain
I said no, no, no
No, no, no, alright

It's the same ol', same ol' situation
It's the same ol', same ol' ball and chain
Girl it's the same ol', same ol' situation
It's the same ol', same ol' ball and chain

You know we just gotta say

All around the world
Girls will be girls

It's the same ol', same ol' situation
It's the same ol', same ol' ball and chain
I'll tell ya girl it's the same ol', same ol' situation
It's the same ol', same ol' ball and chain
Yeah, uh uh, yeah yeah no, no, yeah yeah

    Motley's ode to lesbianism. Slightly ironic and funny because of the fact that the person within the song is talking about an ex-girlfriend who "discovered the kitty" and decides that's "just the way it goes" and avoids emascualtion by adopting this attitude. Also, it's addressing the fact that there are more women "experimenting" and that those decisions are begrudgingly becoming accepted.

    And your point?

    The line "here kitty kitty" and the line "the kitty she discovered" are totally different don't you think?

    Yes, I have read "The Dirt". It's a fantastic read. The Ozzy and Nikki "Ant story" was one of my favorites.

    Regardless of the lyrics, the song's tone sounds like a party with old friends.

    Great sounding song. Outrageous production of the album. This is THE SINGLE BEST PRODUCED ALBUM EVER. And S.O.S. is a tribute to lesbos. The music video is some sweet concert footage. Check it out on youtube.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.
