Song meanings

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty thick at understanding what songs are about if there is any level of simile or metaphor involved or just don't understand what the singer is singing. 

 

Just about deduced who let the dogs out but give me some of your favourite songs and explain what you think they mean for me.

Love lyrics as much as the tune, some real clever songs which have been penned. Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits are ace. 

However, one of the cleverest penned songs is 'A song for whoever' by the Beautiful South. Very clever lyrics and they nearly worked as intended, unfortunately they only made No 2 in the charts with it.

Yeah, same here. Got loads of their stuff. Paul Heaton is a clever singer/song writer and he was also very good in the Housemartins. That Jacqui Abbott who sang in the Beautiful South would also have gotten a gig, bet she's one of those fun girls.

Caravan of Love was about the Escort Readers Wives volumes of 1986.

Hahahaha, stop taking the piss. I wouldn't have a clue what it is about, but the original was by another band, Isley brothers? Or one of them as a solo artist. Probably religious meanings................ priests shagging Nuns in their caravans of Love.

Don't Stop Me Now was about Eddie the Eagle. 

 

Jumpin' Jack Flash was about a really shit electrician called Terry Backstroke from Swanage. They changed his name for the song because he was self-employed with 2 kids.

    • This week Manchester city took season ticket direct debits from fans. Threatened to throw people off tickets schemes if they wanted their ticket money back from the Madrid game which will never happen. I think this is far more an issue than how the club pay the wages.  The staff are being paid though, 100%. Just because some of that money comes from the government in a publicised grant, how is that any worry? Would you be worried if it was a grant for ploying people in deprived areas? I'm sure we'll have taken them before. Everyone is keeping their job and they'll have all their wages. Every year the club do their accounts , they probably juggle enough money around with smart accounting to avoid tax that covers the wages of many at the club. Yet nobody is arsed about that. As soon as they take a grant, they're up in arms. But it's exactly the same thing. They take sponsorship money from companies like standard chartered and AXA, who I'm sure have times where they're less than ethical ways they make their money. You think this doesn't fund wages? And nobody complains.    The issue here for me isn't if LFC should or shouldn't do this. As someone else pointed out in the thread, it seems really bad PR to have done this. The issue for me is why we're expecting premier league clubs in general to act differently than any other business up and down the country and why the media is focussed on this and not government failure or other companies who are furloughing and not making up the difference. Many of these businesses will have people earning millions and continuing to earn that whole low paid staff are getting just the goverment grant at 80%. We expect our football clubs to pay tax. We expect the players to pay their income tax and the club make their employers contributions to go with it. Why would you not expect them to apply for a grant when it's made available, yet everyone doesn't give a fuck where a penny of the income comes from? For fucks sake we've been funded for 25 years by Rupert fucking Murdoch, nobody seemed arsed about paying staff wages with his coin and the only reason we're not taking it now is he sold up to Comcast!    Worry why the media wants you focussed on LFC and not this goverment.
    • One of the replies on Stan Collymore's tweet is from a journalist who said he has spoken to SOS.   Says they are refusing to criticise club and see it as positive that staff are being paid. Pete Hooton says not discussed as committee yet.
    • Exactly. 
        I think that Tory liverpool fans thread has more members than we thought (and I don’t include Rico in that because I know he will be repulsed as well)     
    • Raw as in you've been on the front line putting yourself in harm's way to protect the people and help them out when they are unable to help themselves.   Or raw from fingering cats whilst you wank yourself off ya fucking deviant.
    • Just read about this. Absolutely morally reprehensible. Shameful. And something should be done about it. I don't care how successful the team is. This is unforgivable.
