Lyrics ‘n’ links

November 10, 2009

I’ve been driving to a lot of places lately.

Yup. I’m a busy girl. I’ve got a lot of things to do and see.

When I drive to these places, I listen to music. I make monthly playlists, so I typically hear the same song over and over.

After hearing a song a few times, I begin to wonder what the artist was thinking when he/she wrote the song.


The other day I was listening to Nine Inch Nails’ “Please.”

During the end of the song’s chorus, Trent Reznor begins to repeat the line, “Never be enough to fill me up.”

I got to thinking, “Hey. What was this guy thinking when he wrote this lyric?”

I came to the conclusion that he MUST have been talking about a dinner dish that was brought to him. He was totally starving because he missed lunch that day. He was sooo excited to get his pasta and then…

such a small portion.

That’s right. It will never be enough to fill him up.


I will now continue to listen to Them Crooked Vulture’s album and think about Hot Chip’s new power ballad-like song.

Love or hate?
