Manage episode 283551709 series 2806785
This week we take aim at... Song lyrics and the hidden meanings behind them.
Amy kicked us off by discussing why some artists don't always say what they mean when writing their songs. In some cases, it could be considered socially irresponsible, immoral or even illegal to say exactly what they mean. Amy then discussed the songs every breath you take by Sting and the Police and I shot the sheriff by Bob Marley.
Sarah took aim at the hidden meaning in a classic love song by Bon Jovi and then discussed the rather interesting meaning of the lyrics in Little Richards rock and roll hit Tutti Fruiti.
Bianca finished off the episode dissecting the hidden inspirations which lead to the 90s gem by Ace of Base - all that she wants, the BTO chart-topper - you ain't seen nothin' yet and the Lou Reed classic - vicious.
