I started this thread after reading through the “Songs about self-pleasure” thread. I had one song in particular in mind, but it doesn’t qualify as a song about masturbation since I’m not so sure what the hell its about. There are some obvious elements of pleasure, but it isn’t clear what kind of pleasure that is.
But anyway, I though this might be a good thread about cryptic songs in general, since there are a lot of songs that always leave me puzzled.
Piggy in the Mirror by The Cure is one song that always seemed like a bit of a riddle to me. I suppose it can be interpreted in a lot of ways. Here it goes…
If you thought that was easy, I’d like to see you make sense of ‘Bananafishbones’, ‘So What?’, and ‘Hot Hot Hot!!!’ also by The Cure.
