From time to time, someone posts a question asking what a particular song means. I recently figured that maybe there should be one catch all thread for all “what does this song mean” questions.
I’ll start with two
Elton John - Rocket Man. Huh? I’ve never understood this song. Is it to be taken literally? Does the “I’m gonna be high as a kite by then” a drug reference? I don’t have a clue.
Talking Heads - Once in a Lifetime. I’ve never really been able to figure out this one either.
So, if anybody can help me figure out what these two songs mean, that would be great.
Also, if anybody has questions about the meaning or moral of a song, or what story it tells, please post those too.
