My brother-in-law sent me a text today asking me what my top five songs are lyrically. I gave it some thought, and here's what I came up with:
This song totally captures a feeling of loneliness and isolation. Sure, the narrator is surrounded by people, but that doesn't mean he's not alone.
This song is about spending a night wandering around San Francisco, and really, is there a better way to spend one's time than wandering around San Francisco?
Is Thom Yorke conflicted in this song or what? He represents any man who's ever loved someone so much that he hates himself for it.
Whenever I listen to this song, I feel like I accidentally walked in on a praying man. Is Morrissey the perfect spokesman for the desperate? YES!
I love how the narrator evolves from a stumbling idiot who lets love slip away, into a barely conscious rebounder, and finally into a creepy, possibly dangerous stalker.
