Sometimes it's just the abbreviated drunk yelling "This is MY SONG!!"
Other times they speak for so long my ears start to bleed. "OMG I looove this song! It's like they wrote it about my life! No, seriously- it's just like me & my friends & my life!! It's like they were with us when they wrote it."
If whatever band you are currently referencing ever hung out with you & your friends... the only thing they'd likely write would be a will, or a suicide letter. If they did write a song about you, it would be entitled something like 'This Dumbass Thinks He's Cool' or 'Captain Lame-O & His Gang of Rectal Engineers'.
I'm just sayin ::batting eye lashes innocently::
A well written song can be understood & related to by a diverse group of people. It's kept mostly vague enough that it can be interpreted into the listeners life. Bob Dylan was really good at that. Did you know that 90% of females feel that 'Just Like a Woman' is about them? He was great at longing songs & lost love songs too... but I won't ramble.
A good song makes you feel something. It's great that you empathize with this one. Tell me it reminds me of your life. Tell me you understand what they mean. But quit being so darn babbly & cutesy & literal about it. Don't gush on me.... it's icky. You really don't have to say anything except "I love this song" to make me realize you identify with it. And honestly, the less you say the more willing & interested I'd be to listen... cause when you really want someone to listen to a song that has deeply moved you, you shut the fuck up so they can listen to it. If you're still talking, you obviously are more interested in telling me about your life by ways of how this song to relates to it rather than bringing a piece of music to me. So shush. And I'm changing the CD.
