Songs that you aren't sure what they mean...

Hola!

We're about to take the kids into the mountains for a few days and I was packing up some music to take along.

I came across School of Fish's "Three Strange Days" and it motivated me to ask...

Is that song about Easter?

I lived on the beach in L.A. when it first came out and it used to be my three-day weekend 'under the volcano' anthem, oy, but I think there may be more to it than that.

I'm sure there's a million others, but that one is stuck in my head for the day.

Any songs you aren't sure what they're about?

Happy Easter to y'all, see ya Tuesday!

Just about everything Peter Gabriel ever did.

LOL!

I think I know a few of them...

Sledgehammer is about sex.

Kiss That Frog is about trying to get a girl to offer some oral pleasure.

Actually, every song he does is about sex.

If I remember that rule, Peter becomes decipherable.

Hasta, amigo!

Most of the songs written by Jon Anderson for Yes in the 70's. Love the albums, but I cannot seem to make since of a 20 minute song with what seems like random lines. So, I kick back and just let the tunes flow over me.

Cheers,

Oh God, there are so many!
How about "Spill the Wine" by the Animals? Anyone have a clue what the hell this is about?
I think there are whole web sites devoted to this very question, but most are probably just speculation - meaning not very informative, but probably entertaining.
