I’m sitting at my desk today trying to rewrite a journal paper that was accepted pending major revisions in March of this year. As per usual, I’ve got XMMS fired up and playing a selection of songs as I work. Kiss From a Rose by Seal was playing, and I started wondering about some of the lyrics that I couldn’t quite work out. Anyway, I came across an analysis of the lyrics at Song Crossfire, a web site run by some guys called Darryl and Jerry. Anyway, they have tongue-in-cheek arguments about the meanings of song lyrics, and sometimes their analysis and banter is freaking hilarious. I don’t know, maybe I was just utterly bored and likely to laugh at just about anything, but their Kiss From a Rose analysis had me in stitches towards the end.
