It's funny how nothing seems much fun
Anymore to me now that I quit the drink
'Cause soberness, it might be what I need
But it's certainly not how I want to be

Nothing seems much fun anymore to me

Consequence never had anytime to think
About what coulda, shoulda, happen to me
see-Common sense my parents said I
Never had any, but now look whose
Got the dough

No longer born to lose
Put away my party shoes
Missin' the alcohol
Don't feel like goin' out
Nothing worth singin' about
Missin' the alcohol
Without tonic n gin
Without no vicodin

Nothing seems much fun anymore to me [Repeat: x4]

    No hidden meaning, it's about someone who's given up alcohol and feel like nothing's fun anymore without it, even though it's what's best for them. "It may be what i need but it's certainly not how i wanna be."

    Why the fuck should this song be about "Smelly" Erik Melvin? Sorry for being so harsh!

    Quoting General Comment from DeanBetamberineon August 04, 2009:

    "smelly did a lot of acid and other drugs, he got his name smelly cos his acid farts stank he was gonna get kicked out of the band unless he went sober which he did and then they recorded whatever album it was with him"

    Smelly became a hardcore heroin addict... and eventually faced the day where the Band Nofx forced him to decide wether its gonna be THE BAND or drugs..

    He chose NOFX!

    Anyways you fucking NOFX history noobs (the ones I clearly finger point on, feel adressed, the rest of you LOVE YA)

    This song is Mike Burkett, describing his "new" found feeling for drugs, hiding it in alcholism abuse...

    period finished thats it

    Anyone have any more insight on this? It might be about Smelly (makes sense) but I could never figure out why Fat Mike, self-professed alcoholic and dug-user would sing this. If it was about Smelly wouldn't Smelly sing it? Maybe Fat Mike went sober for a brief stint?

    why the fuck would smelly, the drummer sing it?:S obviously no matter who wrote the song the singer or one of the singers of the band would sing it, idiot.

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.

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
