You fashion people in your camouflage wear
You think you're really quite up there
But the fashions you wear aren't so cool
You really should go back, you're old school
And Martin hides behind our stripes
The T-shirts yeah! that's what she likes
Nicking off with logos at cartier
The grand mister D, or Charly, some say

Fashion!

Dress-up dummies for a little while
Crashed the crash party in real chicks style
Karl and his lens they like to watch
King of the thing
But we don't give a fuck
Gucci's got the monopoly
Fifty handbags - that's victim's luxury
Voguefied in 01, enough of that fake, it's said and done

[Chorus]
Fashion is for fashion people
It's hard to be cool if you don't follow these rules
Fashion is for fashion people
Get out there now and break the rules

[Repeat Chorus]

Fashion!

Bless your dress, you're out of style
You're a brainwash victim for a while
Off with their heads is what we say
After marie antoinette it's the only way

You're a model and you walk the beat
They even told you what to eat
Bacteria inbred in fashion schools
Get out there now and break the rules

[Repeat Chorus]

It's hard

    i think of this song as one of the best by chicks on speed. i perceive the meaning as parodying the fashion industry - "you're a model and you walk the beat, they even tell you what to eat" and how the industry stresses that females have to be thin and stylish and wear Gucci to be attractive or cool. the song is saying how silly this is ! ! it is gender stereotyping and sexist, focused directly on females - not dissimilar to the Beauty Myth. that is just how i see it - Get Out There Now and Break The Fashion Rules ! !

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.

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.

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/

“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
