Classic songs explained

  • Gordon Lightfoot - Carefree Highway (Gordon Lightfoot would not have been a good romantic partner in the 1970s)
  • Bruce Springsteen - Thunder Road (a series of questionable metaphors and romantic imagery signifying nothing)
  • Elvis Costello and the Attractions - (What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding (Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe despised hippies when they were young men)
  • Led Zeppelin - Ramble On (Led Zeppelin were nerds)
  • Prince - Little Red Corvette (this song is about a promiscuous woman)
  • David Bowie - Ashes to Ashes (cocaine is a hell of a drug)
  • The Rolling Stones - Tumbling Dice (women are comparable to gambling in many ways)
  • Rod Stewart - Maggie May (May-December romances rarely work out)
  • ZZ Top - La Grange (this song is about a brothel)
