it's a great song; I killed myself to identify the backing vocals... and finally it was Rick Danko... no wonder it sounded so familiar.

It’s about a disturbed and dangerously depressed person who uses demeaning sex (potentially sexual abuse, but not necessarily) as a means of power and purpose - not just closer to God but closer to being God but desecrating and overtaking someone else sexually.

"Indulging imprinted nostalgia is a tricky business. It's to the credit of Fred Thomas and his army of collaborators in Saturday Looks Good to Me that they so consistently connect with a weirdly instinctual recognition of the generalized 60s music from which their own music is drawn."

This song talks about a man who is emotionally distant, cold, and difficult to reach. He has other girls, but Lana tries to show that she is the favorite. The contrast is highlighted by the juxtaposition of his cold demeanor with the hot weather of California, where they live. "Bonnie" might evoke an association with the infamous criminal couple Bonnie and Clyde, symbolizing a romantic yet doomed relationship. In part: Your hot, hot weather in the summer, it makes me think that he showed him another side during the summer, he drank a lot and became neglectful in bed, even...

This site would be so much better if it had actual info, links and/or sources that contained anything at all from the writer, instead of a bunch of people that just want and have to share their own personal meanings or messages from lyrics written by someone else that they’ve never met. Does anyone have any information? I mean actual information, that isn’t made up, or about themselves and personal meanings and their own expressions?

And, lyrically, I think it’s kind of weak."

As someone who is extremely fond of this song, this is my personal interpretation. To me, this song is about someone that wants to feel loved, despite being problematic, immature (reinforced when they call themselves a big baby/say they'll throw a fit), and harmful; despite that, the person isn't necessarily bad, as I interpretate those lines not in an abusive tone, but rather in a self-blaming one (and also, the peaceful, but quite upbeat music that accompanies the lyrics make the song feel like a vent, not a claim).This person warns their lover that their attitude may not always be the...
