6 Famous Songs That Don’t Mean What You Think
canada goose uk shop Bryan Adams “Summer of ’69” canada goose uk shop
buy canada goose jacket This annoying as all get out little ditty from Bryan Adams’ Reckless album has been a staple of wedding dances for over two decades goose outlet canada now. And it’s no wonder, canada goose outlet parka people love canada goose outlet to reminisce on days gone by when life was simpler and anything seemed possible. But what exactly is Bryan Adams reminiscing about? buy canada goose jacket
cheap canada goose uk It seems straightforward enough. He bought a guitar, played it until his fingers bled, started a band, the band broke up canada goose jacket outlet because Bryan Adams blows, he met a chick, she didn’t realize he was going to grow up to be Bryan Adams so she made out with him. Those were the best days of his life, and ours, because we hadn’t heard that song from the Robin Hood soundtrack yet. cheap canada goose uk
cheap Canada Goose Some people speculate that Adams may be singing about, um, something else. Here’s a hint, complete this sentence. “Wine me, dine me, __ me.” Still not getting it? Fine, some people think he may be singing about oral sex. Just what we like to think about when it comes to Bryan Adams. cheap Canada Goose
And as you’ll notice in a few of the songs on this list, the dirty, double meaning that sounds like it was thought up by a horny 12 canada goose outlet sale year old often turns out to be true. In an online interview, Adams said: “One thing people never got was that the song isn’t about the year 1969. It’s about making love, a la ’69!” A la ’69? What a dork. Then there’s the interview with the Binghampton Press Sun Bulletin where Adams confirmed “the title comes from the idea of ’69 as a metaphor for sex,” confirming he has both a child’s sense of humor and understanding of metaphors. Anyway, coming from the source itself, that seems pretty convincing. We’re pretty sure Adams himself wouldn’t even say that. There’s also the fact that Adams didn’t turn 10 until November of 1969, and we refuse to believe Bryan Adams was a cooler 9 year old than us.
buy canada goose jacket cheap Some claim the “Angie” in the song is Angela, the now ex wife of David Bowie. Lending credence to that claim is that the former Mrs. Bowie herself is one of the ones making that claim. According to her, after returning home from a canada goose outlet trip, she walked into her bedroom to find Bowie and Jagger in bed together. While their thin white dukes weren’t in canada goose outlet online action at the time, they did just happen canada goose outlet jackets to be nude. And probably high, skinny canada goose outlet store uk to the point of borderline anorexia and, even in the post coital glow of dude loving, far more attractive to most chicks than any of us ever canada goose outlet shop will be. buy canada goose jacket cheap
Yes, the song you’ve probably dedicated to your ex girlfriend is about the heartbreak someone else felt upon finding out you boned David Bowie.
While Jagger and Bowie understandably deny the incident ever happened,. Adding fuel to the fire, after she divorced Bowie she wrote a book and made a famous appearance on the Joan Rivers Show in which she reiterated her belief that Jagger and Bowie had indeed been having sex shortly before she walked in.
Now, Keith Richards does say he came up with the chord sequence and title a full year before the incident that allegedly inspired the song. canada goose outlet canada It’s not known where Richards snorting his father’s ashes fits in that timeline, but it is widely speculated that Keith Richards’ perception of the time space continuum is utterly fucked, even if he’s not just fudging it to protect Jagger’s reputation.
For the rest of us, there’s the simple fact that around the time he got caught canada goose outlet online uk by a woman named Angela in bed with David Bowie, Mick Jagger wrote a song about the haunting, sad eyes of a girl named Angie. And then there’s this picture, taken around that time.

Canada Goose Coats On Sale Phil Collins “In the Air Tonight” Canada Goose Coats On Sale
“In the Air Tonight” stands alone as Phil Collins’ sole flirtation with being awesome. With its spooky production and hammering drum patterns, the song pulled off the gargantuan feat of making television viewers believe Philip Michael Thomas and Don Johnson wearing pastel suits amidst mountains of cocaine was a plausible setting in which a crime other than forced sodomy could actually occur. It’s no wonder that a song with that much force behind it would have an equally powerful back canada goose outlet in usa story attached to it.
uk canada goose It varies wildly depending on who you’re talking to, but the most popular story behind the song, and the one awkwardly quoted by Eminem in the almost as popular “Stan,” goes like this: As a kid, Collins witnessed a tragic incident in which a man drowned as another man who could have helped stood by and did nothing. Later, presumably through some form of leprechaun magic, Phil tracked the no good Samaritan down and arranged for him to be sitting in the front row of the concert where he debuted “In the Air Tonight,” singing the song directly to the man who sat uncomfortably under a spotlight. Were it not for that one Genesis video that starred a Ronald canada goose outlet uk Reagan puppet, canada goose outlet reviews this would qualify as the creepiest moment of Phil Collins’ career. uk canada goose

“American Girl,” the first single from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ debut album, official canada goose outlet features the kind of enigmatic lyrics that canada goose factory outlet send fans into fits searching for meaning. Apparently, Tom Petty fans are a morose bunch. According to an extremely popular story, Petty wrote the song about a University of Florida student who jumped to her death from the balcony of her dorm room.
uk canada goose outlet It’s an understandable conclusion if you take a look at some of the lyrics. Among the references that draw the attention of suicide song enthusiasts are “old 441” which is the name of the highway in Florida that runs past the dorm where the suicide allegedly occurred and “she stood alone, on the balcony” which is generally what people do shortly before hurling themselves off said balcony. Toss in the fact that Petty is from Gainesville where the University of Florida is located and what you have is one perfectly reasonable theory about the meaning of the song. uk canada goose outlet
Canada Goose Outlet It’s not true at all. In the book “Conversations With Tom Petty,” the ugly stick beaten rocker set the story straight. Canada Goose Outlet
canada goose coats on sale In his words, the story is an “urban legend” and was actually written while he was living in Encino, CA. The 441 in question refers to an expressway that ran outside the apartment he lived in at the time.

canada goose store It’s a well known story that in canada goose black friday sale 1984, Ronald Reagan’s campaign for reelection tried to use Bruce Springsteen’s blue collar protest anthem “Born in canada goose outlet uk sale the USA” as a rallying cry. By now, most people understand that a song about a Vietnam Vet who ends up canada goose outlet nyc unemployed and in jail isn’t exactly an endorsement of trickle down economics. What you might not know is that you probably made the exact same mistake as Reagan about the admittedly less awesome John Mellencamp song “Our Country.” canada goose store
canada goose factory sale While there’s plenty of room for confusion in the lyrics, there is one thing most everyone can agree on. Those fucking Chevy commercials need to stop. Since approximately week three of the 2006 season, NFL fans nationwide have entered into each and every commercial break paralyzed by the fear that, at some point during the break in action, the words “The dream is still alive” will act as the harbinger that signals the beginning of the 30 least pleasurable seconds of their Sunday football watching experience. The least pleasurable, that is, until the whole experience is repeated 15 more times throughout the game. And the game after that. canada goose factory sale
canada goose uk outlet It’s not surprising that Chevy chose the song. Thanks to the ultra patriotic verse from the ad, and the whiff of almost territorial nationalism in declaring the country OURS, you can’t help but think of a NASCAR infield full of flag waving hillbillies canada goose uk outlet.
