Default Re: How much do lyrics matter to you?

Agree.

It seems to me that if you've been bad then the blind man will start spray shooting and you have to duck ... and that was Ian Gillan's finest moment lol ... actually, I always enjoyed the song even if the lyrics are attempting to be vaguely philosophical, emphasis on "vaguely".

How about The Stones's Jumpin Jack Flash?

A wa bow
Onna crossfire herigain
Anna how
Onna mow anna drivin rain.

But it rocks!

Took me a while to know what he was on about, let alone working out why Jimi was excusing himself to "kiss this guy". With all the mondegreens around, there's a minority of songs that speak to me lyrically.
