More snagged from [livejournal.com profile] afterxbirth :

Step 1: Put your music player on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line (unless the first line reveals the song title) from the first 25 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing. (House rule: Skip instrumentals.)
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and song title correctly.
Step 4: Looking them up on Google is cheating!

I don't believe in an interventionist God
But I know, darling, that you do
But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
Not to intervene when it came to you
Not to touch a hair on your head
Leave you as you are
If He felt He had to direct you
Then direct you into my arms

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms

And I don't believe in the existence of angels
But looking at you I wonder if that's true
But if I did I would summon them together
And ask them to watch over you
To each burn a candle for you
To make bright and clear your path
And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love
And guide you into my arms

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms

But I believe in Love
And I know that you do too
And I believe in some kind of path
That we can walk down, me and you
So keep your candles burning
And make her journey bright and pure
That she will keep returning
Always and evermore

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord

Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds

Whoops, forgot to mention, Hard On for Love is not the name of this song, it's the title for the pic :)

 I talked to [livejournal.com profile] lstinhpfdm  about it and decided to copy paste in case anyone else cares and doesn't know: 

The Twain quote is the "In matters of opinion our rivals are insane" 
Originally though it's slightly different. It's from 'Christian Science' and the whole quote goes like this: 

We all know that in all matters of mere opinion (every) man is insane - just as insane as we are... we know exactly where to put our finger upon his insanity: it is where his opinion differs from ours. All Democrats are insane, but not one of them knows it. None but the Republicans. All the Republicans are insane, but only the Democrats can perceive it. The rule is perfect: in all matters of opinion our adversaries are insane.

ETA: Though, y'know, Twain had some love for mentioning superstition himself so there's that ... :)

Allow me to exaggerate a memory or two
Where summers lasted longer than we do.
Where nothing really mattered except for me to be with you.
But in time we all forgot and we all grew.

Cut for yet another rant )  commented with: Apparently there's a lot of Mormon imagery in the song, like putting out the lantern is a symbolic of leaving the faith, etc., so I think it's about leaving his family and their faith and making it on his own.

Which is relevant 'cause it proves I'm not stoopid. :) Thus I paste it here.

See, no matter how many times I listen to "She's a Handsome Woman" and read people discuss it, I can't get over the way it's written. And Brendon does a really nice job of mushing it all together but I will just always think it's a song about/with the scraped album stories/bits.
Which doesn't take away from the progress of the song itself, Innocence to Bombed reverie, because from what Ryan Ross said that album was supposed to be a musical - with a start, a middle and an ending - anyway. But he couldn't finish it.

He also said he didn't wanna make an album about becoming famous and being disillusioned by it, but instead of being swayed by that, I'm taking it as "When I got pass the middle I realized the ending is not true and we made this new totally positive album 'cause you didn't beat us down with your bullshit."

Innocence. Sunk the glow and drowned in covers, send for all your absent lover's things.
Sheepish Wolves. Looking lived in eating buttons, Wink, just don't put your teeth on me.
Accidents. Let the evening in the backdoor, filled the room ceiling to the floor.
Beat backbones. Grazed the poem and made it strange, I wasn't born to be a skeleton.
Go on, grab your hat and fetch a camera. Go on, film the world before it happens.
Jealous orchard. The sky is falling off the ceiling while I'm tucking fibs into a cookie jar.
Bombed reverie. It's useless searching in the cupboard when everything you have is on your back.

Not that I need to but I'll rant explain anyway.

Cut. Cause that is how much I like you.  )

There's one incredible U2 lyrics site where the guy spent years looking for real meanings behind their songs, from interviews, documentaries, books, whatever, he did research and allowed people to post their opinions but read through them and only left the valuable//true ones.
And he pointed out some totally ridiculous ones too. Specifically, someone explained how "One" is a song about blowjobs ("Did I disappoint you or leave a bad taste in your mouth") ...

aaanywaaay, that's what I'm reminded of when I read stuff like this: 

4TH & FREEMONT STREET

replace 4th=Fourth

FOURTH & FREEMONT STREET

replace Fourth=F
replace Freemont=F
replace Street=S

FFS

replace F=6 (6th letter of alphabet)
replace F=6 (6th letter of alphabet)
replace S=6 (first letter in six)

666

...is possibly the most beautiful song I've ever heard, lyrically.

I know it's also probably the least typical of his lyrics, 'cause if anything on the first album he observed the more gritty side of humanity, and the second one, though happier, is still more... observing? narrative? *headscratch* I dunno; while this song sounds like he's creating a fantasy world of his own. And for me, it's a beautiful world to escape to.

*keysmash of the silent nature* I was looking for stuff about this song because when I listen to it I never get a proper story, like I do with most of their other songs, just fantastic images, and this whole post was supposed to be about that with the omg beautiful pictures by Vladimir Kush and then, 'cause sometimes I'm Sam, I researched my ass off and found a vid of Ryan saying that's exactly what the song is supposed to do and now I'm a bubble of happiness! Yay.
Sometimes I feel uncomfortable talking about the meaning behind other people's art because it's so very subjective and I don't want to come of as either stupid of disrespectful... which is why it was very nice of Ryan Ross to explain this to the world! *happydance*

"That song is supposed to make you forget about everything real and it is basically just all imagery, the whole song. And the sounds around it, I wanted to sound just like the lyric did musically. It's one of those songs where you just kinda lay down and close your eyes and you listen to it as a little story or something. And, you know, somewhere behind the sea... it's kind of an unknown."

So... The first few times I listened to it I was stuck on Dali and possibly Bosh (Garden of Earthy delights specifically) but they are so heavy and dark and riddled with hidden meanings of their own it just felt like too much weight for this song. So I kept on looking for something lighter and a bit more open. And I found this guy. Vladimir Kush. He is a surrealist but he stays true to real life shapes and objects which makes it easier for me to connect and feel. (I could never understand how 3 black lines and 2 red ones represent the suffering of contemporary man in modern consciousness or whatever.)

This is, sort of, what Behind the Sea makes me see. (heh, bad rhyme accidental)

...And it looks like the sun
But it feels like the rain...

...
Did I ask too much
More than a lot
You gave me nothing
Now it's all I got...

...
In my dream I was drowning my sorrows
But my sorrows they learned to swim
Surrounding me, going down on me
Spilling over the brim...

...
One man washed on an empty beach.
One man betrayed with a kiss...

...I can't live
With or without you
...


OMG U2 are EMO!
