A List About Lyrics

You know the deal.
1The Smiths
I Know It's Over

"It's so easy to laugh, it's so easy to hate/it takes strength to be gentle and kind." Lines like these
epitomize the genius of Morrissey. Though his lyrical content is always dealing with some sort of
romanticism, he always leaves room for dark, misanthropic humor. However it's the complete earnesty
Mozza's voice that truly makes the line so believable, the yearning to connect. Plus the song is
2The National
City Middle

"Parking your car, you said 'I'm overwhelmed', you were thinking out loud, you said 'I'm overwhelmed"
While the rest of the song deals with various themes of alcohol use and reflection, the isolated magic in
this part of City Middle is simply gorgeous. The way his voice gains volume as he sings "I'm
is brilliant and just the analytical nature of the line alone gives me chills. Regardless of meaning, it is
brilliant prose.
Bulldog Front

"But I would never say you act without precision or care, but it's all attention to armor; to the armor you
wear so well" A blatant attack on materialism, Guy Piccioto spits this line with such bitter subtlety that
adds much passion to the song. As opposed to Ian Mackaye's chanting, Guy has always been more on
introspective side and his lyrics have always been a tad more rewarding.
4Animal Collective
Flesh Canoe

"And I'm singing to you what to do if I ask you to make funny faces with me in the bathroom" Sheesh.
Whenever discussing Animal Collective there's often a general consensus that their music is very
and child-like, playful in a sense. This lyric embodies that spirit, with sparse, ambient instrumentation
backing it up as Avey Tare lightly sings tales of love from a young kid's perspective.

"The doctor said it's all in your imagination, negro/ahh what do he know/about the buttery flow, he
to cut the ego!" MF DOOM lies neither in the camp of thoughtful, intellectual rappers nor mindless,
boasting rappers. In all honesty, he's a funny motherfucker, pulling off different accents and getting
sidetracked in comedic stoner tales. Awesome.
6Dangermouse and Sparklehorse

"Pain, I guess it's a matter of sensation/but somehow you have ways of avoiding it all/in my mind, I
shot you and stabbed you through your heart." Perhaps the more obvious choice, Wayne Coyne's
performance on Dark Night Of The Soul's opening track is spine-tingling. Always being a more obscure
lyricist, the deliberate, yet soft emphasis put on "in my mind" is incredibly eerie and matches the dark
of the song.
Sam Rudich

"I feel nothing like my father/he's been sleeping underground/don't wait around, there's nothing there
all" Growing up with father conflicts myself, I always find lyrics that address such subject matter hit
for me. Obviously describing the apathetic nature of his dad, the frantic tone heard in the vocalist's
as he sings "don't wait around" is sublime, a sort of way of countering with his parent's dead-
8Kanye West
Welcome To Heartbreak

"I've seen it, I've seen it before" The lyrics in this track being admittedly a bit amateurish and nothing
special, it's probably the bridge that most appropriately and tastefully details the desperation of kanye.
Soothing, auto-tuned singing that holds on the word "seen" captures the sound that West attempts
throughout the album, sometimes achieving it and sometimes not so close.
