  • Odd song themes

    Currently listening to one by Split Enz called 'shark attack'. The lines 'Now i'm lost at sea and i'm an amputee' and 'slaughter in the water' made me wonder just what induced them to write the song! Its not like they're some heavy 'rock' slipknot rubbish or anything, they're a perfectly normal (mainly) kiwi band from late 80s/ early 90s. Had the Finn brothers of Crowded House fame.

    Anyone else got any particuarly odd lyrics or song themes they can think of off-hand?
    I walked across an empty land
    I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
    I felt the earth beneath my feet
    Sat by the river and it made me complete

      There are plenty of them out there, a few come to mind right off...

      Just about anything written by Jim Morrison of The Doors
      Bryan Bowers - The Scottsman
      Kip Adotta - Wet Dream (Not what you think)
      Ogden Edsl - Dead Puppies

      and the wierdest of all, and hopefully won't offend any of the ladies here...

      King Missile - Detachable Penis

          .."It's enough for this restless warrior just to be with you...."

          "....there's a rhyme and reason to this wild outdoors......."

          "...Can you feel the Love tonight......"

            Excellent musician. One of the very best.
            "The Director also sets the record straight on what would happen if oxygen masks were to drop from the ceiling: The passengers freak out with abandon, instead of continuing to chat amiably, as though lunch were being served, like they do on those in-flight safety videos."
