What is the meaning of my favorite songs?

Well it's been a while, but I figured it was high time to let an entire cattery of felines out of the bag when it comes to song meanings. No need to fret or thank me, it's just what I do.



Ready? Let's begin!

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE SONG 'BAD BLOOD' BY TAYLOR SWIFT?

In the high pressure environment of an Emergency Department, accidents can and do happen weather the hospital board wants to admit that or not. After a particular long and grueling day working back to back shifts, instead of putting some very important blood packs in the fridges, a confused orderly by the name of Gary ended up putting them in the cupboard instead. In place of the blood packs, Gary put a tin of instant coffee. While the surgeons were thrilled by the chilled effect this had on the cheap and nasty coffee beans, they were less thrilled by the fact that all of that blood went bad and couldn't be used. Taylor did some work experience at a hospital once and decided this medical mishap would be a great basis for a hit song.
Gary still works there to this day although he did receive a warning letter for his inattention.

Here Gary attempts to convince his patient that he didn't steal his sandwich

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE SONG 'SEE YOU AGAIN' BY WIZ KHALIFA?

A dedication song to the passengers of the 105 bus line that Wiz would see on a weekly basis during his ride to technical college. There was Mary the minister, Hoopty the mechanic and Gentleman Jim the octogenarian who would always ride with his dog Muffy and mumble German death metal songs. Wiz would see them almost every day riding the bus line and came up with this song when he finally saved enough money to buy a car.

Jim loves Wiz's dedication!


WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE SONG 'PEANUT BUTTER JELLY' BY GALANTIS

Before they made it big with this hit, Galantis made a modest living by selling home made jellies at craft markets. While they did okay with stock standard jellies such as strawberry, lime and orange - they yearned for the chance to create unique jellies with the freedom of experimentation that craft brewers truly enjoy. Sadly this proved to be a truly terrible idea as nobody enjoyed any of their new concoctions which included 'beef and Yorkshire pudding jelly', 'stewed Chinese cabbage in black bean sauce jelly' and 'We hit this thing while driving last night and it's pretty unrecognizable' jelly. Once they turned their focus to songwriting though things really bloomed, although their original track 'Do you want a bag for that?' was never released due to poor lyrics.

Not a great basis for jelly.


WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE SONG 'WHERE IS THE LOVE?' BY THE BLACK EYED PEAS?

A song from the Black Eyed Peas curiosity of the current location of the iconic Herbie the Love Bug. At last check Herbie was still trying to drive as far away as possible from Lindsay Lohan.

Where are you now?


WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE SONG 'SKINNY LOVE?' BY BIRDY/BON IVER?

Amazingly it's the answer to the question that's been keeping Bon Iver fans awake and unable to sleep for years, 'So what kind of milk would you like in your coffee?'
The original reply was 'Just a drop of skinny milk please love!' which was shortened when the song was crafted.
The cafe where this coffee was served has never been revealed.

Thanks love!


WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE SONG 'TAKE ME TO CHURCH' BY HOZIER?

You know that horrible feeling when you get in your car and attempt to start it, only to realize that you left the headlights on overnight and there's not a single spark left in the battery? You can't even get enough juice out of it to play the radio while you wait for someone to give you a jump start. One Sunday this happened to poor Hozier who was on his way to the famous Church, the Church of the Bread and the Fishes. So not wasting any time, he called a cab and the song title was the directions he gave to the driver.

Church. Yes, I take you!

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE SONG 'LAY ME DOWN' BY SAM SMITH?

The irresistible appeal of a couch to pass out on after one too many tequila shots at a housewarming appeal. Especially if you've suddenly discovered you can't stand too well and need to be supported by friends. While being held up in place is okay, it's far preferable to be laid down gently on a couch to strut into slumberland.

Sooooo comfy after a big night!
