So, have you ever been listening to a song you like when, all of a sudden, you realize that you've never really listened? Then, you listen, and you find that you don't like it anymore?
This site will not help you with that problem. Allow me to try again.
So, have you ever been listening to a song when, all of a sudden, you realize that you've never really listened? (I realize that the question is not substantially different from the first one; in fact it only removes the stipulation that you like the song.) Then, you listen, and you realize that you don't really understand the words? I don't mean that you can't figure out what words the singer is singing (although perhaps you can't), but that you don't understand what they mean?
Or, perhaps you've listened many times, but you still don't understand it. Perhaps it makes a reference to something that completely passes you by as though you weren't there. Maybe you recognize that it's referencing something that you should understand, but you can't quite put your finger on it. It could even be that you have no clue at all as to what the songwriter was on about.
This site is for you.
Here you'll find what will eventually be the lyrics of several songs. This is not particularly different than any of several other sites floating around. What will make this site different, though, is that I've gone out into the general Internet, and found a number of sites that should help you understand the meaning behind the songs, which I've then incorporated into the song lyric page for easy access. I'm debating over whether or not to make these links in a new window, so if you have an opinion, let me know.
The way things work around here will be something like this:
- I listen to a song.
- I listen to the song.
- I don't understand the song.
- I pop on over to my friend, Google.com.
- I do a bunch of searching, keeping careful bookmark records.
- I understand the song.
- I use my bookmarks to construct a Linked Lyrics page.
- I post the page here.
- You listen to a song.
- You listen to the song.
- You don't understand the song.
- You pop on over to your friend, forty2.com slash linked dot lyrics (admittedly, it doesn't have the same ring as "Google.com").
- You understand the song.
Here are the actual songs:
