Just copied from Something Awful, but it seemed a pretty cool idea despite that.  I had a search and couldn't find anything simiiar, but sorry if this is a repeat.  The topic pretty much says it all: Sum up an entire song's lyrics with a single sentence

Kaiser Chiefs - I Predict A Riot : British city centres are full of drunken idiots.

Le Tigre - What's yr take on Cassavetes : I saw both The Killing of A Chinese Bookie and A Woman Under the Influence but dunno if I actually like them or not.

The Kinks - David Watts : Ray Davies is still bitter about High School.

The Undertones - Teenage Kicks : Masturbation is great.

Semisonic - Get a Grip : No, seriously, masturbation is great.

Spoon - Two Sides of Monsieur Valentine : The play's the thing.

The Wombats - Moving to New York : This boy needs therapy.

The Indelicates - Julia We Don't Live in the Sixties Anymore : Idealism is dead, I guess.

Cassetteboy - Why Brother : Cassetteboy really, really enjoys reality TV

Anything by My Chemical Romance: Wah, wah, wah.
Anything played live by Metallica in the last ten years: Wah, wah, wah. Oh sorry you said the lyrics, not the guitar work.

A Silver Mt. Zion - Goodbye, Desolate Railyard - So these railroad tracks that we used to hang out by got torn up, and we're pretty bummed about it, so here's the most depressing music we could write at the time.

Pig Destroyer - Fourth Degree Burns - I really like this girl, but I'm in a grindcore band so I have to write a love song using violent metaphors.

The Mars Volta - (anything) - Eh, we just make this shit up as we go along.

Woah, way to diss the entire Icelandic language. Only ( ) and part of Takk are in a made up language. The rest is all Icelandic. Get it right!

Anywho:
A Cautionary Song - The Decemberists: Your mother is a whore and that's the only way she can afford to feed you.
Westfall - Okkervil River: Pretty much anyone might be an evil murder.

I think I need to hear that song. Also, I need to get hold of a copy of the Dr Who theme. So much awesome from such old synthesizers.
Would someone be so kind as to YSI me via pm or some such? Khar?

I'd summarise some songs but I'm at work and don't have access to any songs.

Madness - Michael Caine: Woo! Michael Caine!

Man, you did that so wrong. Clearly it should be:

Madness - Michael Caine: "My name is Michael Caine."

Many many apple-ogies for the inconweenience.

Rancid - Corazon de Oro: "I REALLY can't sing"

Kanye West - Diamonds Are Forever:  Look, I read a one paragraph blurb about the Sierra Leone diamond situation!

Miranda Lambert - Gunpowder & Lead:  Murder is okay if the guy is a jerk.

John Lennon - Imagine:  Socialism would be nifty.

The Smiths - Some Girls Are Bigger Than Others:  Not all women are the same height;  they in fact vary in size and body type.

The White Stripes - Conquest:  The typical movie/sitcom situation of a guy nailing some girl then falling in love with her, and consequently being trapped in an unwanted relationship, posesses a great degree of epic grandeur.

Drive By Truckers - Sounds Better In The Song:  Drugs are bad, mmmkay?

Drive By Truckers - Ronnie & Neil:  The classic feud between Neil Young and Lynyrd Skynyrd was, in fact, blown out of proportion, and the singers had a great deal of respect for one another.

Alan Jackson - Where Were You When The World Stopped Turning:  The Chinese use the same word for Crisis and Opportunity;  The country's crisis, is my opportunity.

Linkin Park - any song:  God it's so depressing being so rich!

Cake - Short Skirt/Long Jacket:  I would like to date a woman who is a feminist but still likes to have lots of sex.

Oops, the DBT song I meant was "When The Pin Hits The Shell".

Sounds Better In The Song in one sentence would be "My girlfriend dumped me, but it's okay, I'm a huge loser."

Velvet Underground-  "Sister Ray" :  Drag queens team up with sailors for a night of heavy drug use & oral sex, resulting in a trip to the station in a squad car.


A Tribe Called Quest- "Bonita Applebaum"  :  A name that's easy to rhyme & a curvaceous body will likely fuel an MC's lust.
