Van Morrison's "Brown Eyed Girl"


Good call, but wrong explanation.

That song is definitely about anal sex.

"Down in the hollow, playing a new game."

re: Song topics that are completely misunderstood.
Some other good ones:

Dire Straits - Money For Nothing (written from the POV of male appliance store workers who are watching a Michael Jackson video on a TV in the store)

Elton John - Rocketman (about a drug addict)

Beatles - Blackbird (about the civil rights in the 60s)

Dave Matthews Band - Crash (about a creepy stalker)

Live - Lightning Crashes

There are three females mentioned in this song. A New Mother, an Old Mother, and a Newborn Baby. It's kind of hard to tell by listening to the song, but the only death that occurs is by the Old Mother.

This song is about the cycle of life that uses the metaphor of 'Lightning Crashes' to signify the end of one life and the beginning of another.

It was inspired by a friend of the band who was in a fatal car accident whose family donated her organs to save the lives of others.

Hinder - Lips of an Angel


I always found it funny how women sing along to this song when it's really about the guy basically cheating on his current girl with his former girl. "sometimes i wish she was you"

Everclear - Santa Monica

Dug this song for years and only recently discovered it was referencing the lead singer's girlfiend's suicide and his subsequent unsuccessful suicide attempt by jumping off a pier in Santa Monica when he was a teen.

Still an awesome song.
I always thought this was about an exodus to Santa Monica.


Pretty sure no one knew back in the day the Sex Type Thing by STP was a Date Rape song.

Mr Jones by Counting Crows is NOT about his schlong. He is on record saying it was some guy who was his friend and how they tried to hit on chicks at the bar. Exactly as it sounds.

Except I'd heard the original lyrics & title were "Brown Skinned Girl."

re: Song topics that are completely misunderstood.
Not sure if brought up yet. Billy Joel's "She's Always a Woman" is easily misunderstood if you don't really listen to the lyrics. It sounds like a nice piano ballad. It's actually kind of dark:

She can kill with a smile
She can wound with her eyes
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies
And she only reveals what she wants you to see
She hides like a child
But she's always a woman to me

She can lead you to love
She can take you or leave you
She can ask for the truth
But she'll never believe
And she'll take what you give her as long as it's free
Yeah, she steals like a thief
But she's always a woman to me

[Chorus:]
Oh, she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She's ahead of her time
Oh, and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

She will promise you more
Than the Garden of Eden
Then she'll carelessly cut you
And laugh while you're bleedin'
But she'll bring out the best
And the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself
Cause she's always a woman to me

[Chorus:]
Oh, she takes care of herself
She can wait if she wants
She's ahead of her time
Oh, and she never gives out
And she never gives in
She just changes her mind

She is frequently kind
And she's suddenly cruel
She can do as she pleases
She's nobody's fool
But she can't be convicted
She's earned her degree
And the most she will do
Is throw shadows at you
But she's always a woman to me

So Third Eye Blind's "Semi-Charmed Life" comes on the radio and I can't remember a song that was so misunderstood as this one.

I mean everybody was singing this song because it's so pop-bubbly and they never knew it was about being addicted to meth.


So weird. I saw the heading to the thread and that song popped into my head instantly.

Probably the only one I could name. Not a big lyrics guy.

re: Song topics that are completely misunderstood.
Hey Mr. Tambourine man is about finding drugs.

The Tambourine man is code word for drug dealer. Play a song for me... get me some drugs.

I've always speculated that Motley Crues Dr Feelgood is about a drug dealer as well... he's the when you can when you feel good, he's the one that makes you feel alright.

I thought that was pretty understood. Jimmy is a dealer out in Hollywood, and he's called Dr. Feelgood. They don't exactly hide the meaning.
