When it comes to a song, the only person that truly knows exactly what the song is about is the songwriter themselves, but that never stops us from not only filling in our own lyrics, but also trying to wholeheartedly decipher the songs meaning all together. We try, we try again, and we often fail.
It's okay, we're going to keep this one short and sweet so you can get back to attempting to sing along to that Pearl Jam song in rush hour traffic, and you know damn well you have no idea what Eddie is saying.

Sometimes we take that failure to a new level and use a specific song that we think means one thing but actually means another as lets say, our wedding song (oops!). A mistake that is easily made, but not as easily forgotten.
In fact, some of the most well known songs that have been in our musical air supply for what seems like forever are about something completely different than you've been thinking.

If you've made it this far into the description, chances are you've already thought of a couple songs that you once thought meant something much different than what was intended. This week we dig into that exact thing. From lyrics we've butchered over the years, to figuring out what specific songs are actually about. It turns out that one Ben Folds song you all know so well isn't actually about a Brick afterall.
