I'm Shah Jahan you're Taj Mahal
Do you remember that night at the Minah Bazaar
You were meant to be mine
You were meant to be mine

I saw fourteen children
In your lovely brown eyes
To be King and Queen
Was just a disguise

You were meant to be mine
You were meant to be mine
Keep on keep on keep on singing
Taj Mahal

Sitting with you on the banks of the Ganges
Stealing a kiss on the streets of Bombay
Caressing your hair like the wind through the palm trees
I never dreamed that anyone could take you away

Keep on keep on keep on singing
Taj Mahal
I'm building a beautiful statue
To make sure that no one forgets you

Yeah I'm building a beautiful statue
To make sure that no one forgets you
Yeah I'll make sure that no one forgets you
I'll make sure that no one forgets you

I'll make sure that no one forgets you
I'll make sure that no one forgets you
Taj Mahal Taj Mahal
Taj Mahal Taj Mahal

    this is a beautiful song; my favourite. it's pretty obvious it's about mumtaz mahal and shah jahan. she was his favourite wife and on her deathbed (during the birth of their 14th child) she asked him to build her a monument as a symbol of love, and she asked him not to marry anyone else. he obliged and now we have the taj mahal!

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

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,

Amazing
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran tells a story of unsuccessfully trying to feel “Amazing.” This track is about the being weighed down by emotional stress despite valiant attempts to find some positivity in the situation. This track was written by Ed Sheeran from the perspective of his friend. From the track, we see this person fall deeper into the negative thoughts and slide further down the path of mental torment with every lyric.
