The Kooks - She Moves in Her Own Way
The Kooks - You Don't Love Me.
Technically they have a meaning but I don't believe for a second that there's any sincerity there to qualify it.
Are you defending the kooks? I'm not sure what you're getting at.
I think Naive is good, all those songs I mentioned are WEAK.
Argue with me.
existential of you
the worst song of ALL TIME. Worse than the Blink 182 one about having sex with dogs.
I often get the feeling that The Mars Volta sing about pretty much nothing at all. It just seems like they've bought a thesaurus and strung a load of random words together.
"they needed those locks
of dirty red hair
a necklace of follicles with sabertooth monocles
they want a bouquet of black rose gems
castrating kisses stalactite stems
they went and built a capsule in the cyanide pond
where the holiest of water would have you to drown"
who the fuck do they think they are?
they definitely operate in the pompous 'we use unusual words as non sequiters in random streams of blurb that you probably dont understand cos your not as smart as us so nerr' area of songwriting. it can be done well by some, but the mars volta boys fail spectacularly.
their turdy lyrics almost ruin atdi for me as well. they're just lucky i'm so understanding
do you hate them? they conjure a sinister mood of cold beauty and slight gothness without taking each separate word.
...for me, ATD-I lyrics work. I don't know if its because of the way they're delivered but I genuinely can't hate them.
They are all great by the way.
by The Killers. I just about get the chorus but, "They say the devil's water, it ain't so sweet"?! Who are "they"? This is clearly absolute boodah.
