P!nk – Just Like Fire

Explanation
"
I want it all mmm mmm
Clearly this is a metaphor for the insatiable appetite of the human race. Greed runs rampant among humans, and they constantly seek more than they have, unable to be satisfied by anything. The narrator sings of the infinite desires of humans, and how she will not be content until she has it all. Then she eats something delicious, resulting in a "mmm" sound. Clearly this further elaboration upon the earlier mentioned, where the narrator is "feasting" upon the objects of her desire. Read more →

The blood of the martyrs
Will water the meadows of France
Martyrs means a person who is killed because of their religious or other beliefs but the way it is said makes it sound like they are on about the monarchy and how their blood will water the meadows when the revolutionaries kill them.

It could however refer to the students who are killed will become martyrs but watering the meadows of France with there blood would mean that the blood would be loss and often anything related to a martyr is usually kept.

I'm not defending, downward descending,
falling further and further away!
Getting closer EVERYDAY
This describes the person's feelings and state about the world after his service to the war.
He is slowly losing his sanity and is getting closer to his death every day, ready to take his own life.

Meaning
In this song, I think Amy Lee is talking about a kind of rebirth. She had went through some very trying times, but, even it's not completely finish, she's hoping again, living again, believing again in the life through the person she loves, this person who bring her to life. The secret door that she's talking about is the door of her new life. She's getting one last look behind her. Tears still shine on her cheeks, but they are no more tears of pain but melancholy's tears ("Don't fight my tears cause they feels so good"). She's totally lost in her broken life ("To lost to lose"), but she trusts in the person she loves who is reconstructing her ("Feed the fire till my soul breathes free"). Her words are optimistic, she's passing this secret door with her love ("Follow my love through the same secret door"), she's hoping that she will be happy again ("I will remember how to fly").

AC/DC – Back In Black
Editors choice
+11
Meaning
"Back in Black" very simply is a tribute to the late AC/DC vocalist Ronald "Bon" Scott, who died in early 1980 due to pulmonary aspiration. Bon had been working on ideas for the album but he never put any lyrics to the music that the Young brothers had composed. When Bon does, all ideas for the album were tossed and they started fresh. The phrase "Back in Black" represents the band's return from a very dark time. The song is NOT about financial trouble, NOT about a black t-shirt (I'm sorry but that idea is ludicrous), and Bon did NOT write the song (again, who would write a tribute for themselves?) The lyrics that say "I got nine lives, cats eyes, abusing everyone of them and running wild" is a reference to Bon. He was the life of the party, he drank non stop, and he recovered from many of his incidents, hence the meaning of abusing his nine lives. The album cover, black as a memorial, so to speak, to Bon. The Youngs gave told Brian to write whatever came to mind, and the result was the ultimate tribute to the rocker, roller, problem child, vocalist Bon Scott. Many of the other songs are tribute too, the ringing, ominous Hells Bell that opens the album and the song "Have a Drink On Me" and of course "Back in Black" Don't let anyone tell you different about the meaning of this song... believe me, I'm and AC/DC fan of the highest degree. Hope someone is satisfied in knowing that this is the true meaning of the song. Read more →

Found your blind spot, lurking within
Also, right outside the doors, you cannot see with the camera. You have to use your flashlight to see it. These are called "blind spots".
Before animatronics jump at you, they obviously aren't in the room. They stay i
n the blind spot until they pounce.

Meaning
I like this song because I think your love is just outside there waiting for a right time and right place for you. When I sing this song I feel like I am up in heaven seeing many people happy and meeting each other. I imagined that this song will bring a forever to a man and woman who really loves each other very much. And I think this song is a message to all people who really love others that they are really born for each other. But if you really want to love others don't play them make it serious but what I really cannot believe is that there are too many billion people but there is just one true love waiting for you out there but that your true love will be caring for you, loving you and your family and also being respectful and doing good things that will help you.

Meghan Trainor – No
Editors choice

Meaning
This song isn't about, "Reject every guy that dares to come up and talk to you", it's more about, "Have the courage to say no when it's truly your answer, and don't let someone keep putting pressure on you in order to get a yes out of you." In this song, the guy sounds like a player who has friends that is encouraging him to score with Megan by getting her to go to bed with him, since she explains that he uses cheesy lines that other players would say to women, and never mean by anything they say to them. Even though the song is about encouraging women to say what they mean, and don't give into peer pressure, I think it can be for guys too who might get pressured on women who're putting pressure on them as well. I had a friend who is a beautiful gal, and she was putting on some pressure on this one guy who already let her down easy, but she kept on going which made him mad and he walked away. When she came back, she was calling him names behind his back, and I told her, "It's your fault. He already gave you his answer, but you just kept on pushing it. You got yourself hurt." I wanted to write this, because there are some guys who're getting the wrong idea of this song, and I don't want them to think it's about attacking on men. Us women know that there are good men in this world. Read more →

I knew what I wanted; I went out and got it
Did all the things that you said that I wouldn't
She knew what she was going for in life and she finally claimed it as her's. She was very determined to get something that she had always wanted, which I am going to guess that it was a singing job or a happier life than what she had. People always had neglected her saying that she'll never make it, but she proved them all wrong by showing all of her accomplishments to the world. She is very proud being a singer and expressing her emotions and trying to let others listen and relate to her lyrics. Read more →
