"Some Kinda Wonderful" as written by and Antoine/renald Sicotte....
I came upon my crossroads yesterday
I met her on a ship just west of eyeball bay
We ate fish and we listened to some old time rock n' roll
She said "you can call me baby if you let me hold your soul"
But it's because she's wonderful the guys they look her way
She's some kinda big shot

She's some kinda wonderful
She makes a mean steak, it's an eyeful
My baby she's some kinda wonderful to me
She's some kinda wonderful to me
She's some kinda wonderful
Forget it snowflake, she is my soul
You just say she's wonderful and then be on your way
She's some kinda wonderful you see

We bought a little house on highball way
Great kids, nice home and a brand new Chevrolet
But all my neighbors and friends say the wife is a little strange
I know the eyes are freaking and the horns are there to stay
But it's because she's wonderful the guys they look her way
She's some kinda big shot

She's some kinda wonderful
She makes a mean steak, it's an eyeful
My baby she's some kinda wonderful to me
She's some kinda wonderful to me
She's some kinda wonderful
Forget it snowflake, she is my soul
You just say she's wonderful and then be on your way
She's some kinda wonderful you see

She's some kinda wonderful
(Some kinda wonderful)
She makes a mean steak, it's an eyeful
(Freaky ha-ha)
My baby she's some kinda wonderful to me
(Yeah)
She's some kinda wonderful to me
She's some kinda wonderful
(Some kinda wonderful)
Forget it snowflake, she is my soul
(She is mine)
You just say she's wonderful and then be on your way
She's some kinda wonderful you see

She's some kinda wonderful
(Some kinda wonderful)
She makes a mean steak, it's an eyeful
(She is mine and it's sexy wonderful)
My baby she's some kinda wonderful to me
She's some kinda wonderful to me
She's some kinda wonderful you see
(Freaky ha-ha)
(Yeah)

    General Commenti love this song. it's about a guy who falls in love with a demon, and everyone else can see what she is, with the horns and all, but he can't.

    General CommentGrowing up in the 90's FTW! Amazing song from an amazing band. They were one of the best.

    The song is simply about being with one of the bossier types of girls (i.e. the freaky eyes and horns) who is wonderful/lovely nonetheless.

    General CommentOne could claim that the imagery is metaphorical, but a few too many of the lines don't make much sense that way.

    More accurately, it seems likely that he's fallen in love with either a demon, or perhaps 'the devil' in female guise, which has been used in a number of books, songs and so on over the years already.

    This leads us to two main possibilities:

    A - He really doesn't care that he sold her his soul to go out with her
    B - He was lured into it

    Regardless of that, however, he does seem to enjoy spending time with her anyways, and does not appear to regret the decision, nor mind the odd looks.

    He does, however, clearly seem to notice something's wrong, however, with notation of the "let me hold your soul", and the fact that he mentions he does know the horns and eyes aren't exactly normal, but whether he recognizes that these mean she's demonic or not is not fully clarified. Either way, he doesn't seem to care.


    More interesting than that, is trying to see how many possible references to 'evil' or 'demons' there may be in the song, some of which are a stretch, but given the context, it becomes difficult to tell if they are intentional or not.


    - I came upon my crossroads (Meeting a demon at a crossroads for a wish is an old myth)
    - Eyeball bay (sounds like it must mean something but I can't figure out what; may just be related to being creepy)
    - We ate fish and we listened to some old time rock'n roll (Fish is listed as not edible in Leviticus in the bible; rock'n roll was long considered "satan's music" until heavier music replaced that)
    - "you can call me baby if you'll let me hold your soul" (various myths about demons bargaining for someone's soul as the price for a favour or wish)
    - She's some kinda big shot (may be in reference to being 'satan' but it's kind of vague)
    - She makes a mean steak (could be a reference to cooking with fire ie hell, or cows being sacred in some religions, hard to say)
    - Forget it snowflake she is mine (possibly a play on the "snowflake's chance in hell")
    - Highball Way (probably in reference to living remarkably well off, due to a 'deal with the devil')
    - I know the eyes are freaky (many myths of possession or demons, or other mythological creatures being able to be known as such by seeing their eyes, either from glowing, being an odd colour, appearing like an animal's, or a variety of other things)
    - horns are there to stay (more obvious reference to most indications of demons, or at least satan, having horns. It's kind of a give away 'evil' trait)
    - There could be more I haven't even seen :O

    Hard to say how much of that is intentional, or just supposition.

    So the real question is, is he dating a succubus or something that only puts up with him for his soul (or money if we're assuming metaphorical?), or is it suggesting that she can care for someone despite being seen as "evil" (which could be taken as literal or figurative)?

    Regardless, awesome bouncy happy song, which is so weird with the lyrics XD
