Barenaked Ladies Lyrics


THOUGH some critics have derided them as a mere novelty
act, Barenaked Ladies offer testimony that persistence and
hard work can pay off in big ways. Thanks to relentless
touring and impressive media savvy — as well as undeniable
pop smarts — the Canadian band has seen its grassroots
following grow into a solid fan base both in its native
country and abroad. By sticking, for the most part, to a
philosophy that espouses good times (as opposed to grand
statement), the group has carved out a niche of its own,
and its prospects for a More...

Not so depressing | Reviewer: Francis
    ------ About the song Pinch Me performed by Barenaked Ladies

This is a song you really have to feel more than analyze. It's about depression but it's not a deep dark sorrow he's spiraling into. It's like being tired of life and wanting to feel more alive. At the end it perks up and shows a light at the end of the tunnel when he says "I could hide under there/just made you say underwear/i could leave but I'll stay/all my stuff's here anyway". Like he's cracking a joke, he got his sense of humor back and his spirits are lifting.

A good cover of Bruce Cockburn | Reviewer: Don Searle
    ------ About the song Lovers In A Dangerous Time performed by Barenaked Ladies

Certainly this Canadian band did a fabulous job of covering fellow Canadian music icon Bruce Cockburn. It has a feeling all of it’s own when performed by Bare Naked Ladies. Like so many of Cockburn’s songs, there is some controversy around the lyrics and their meaning, as the gay community seemed to adopt this song as an anthem of sorts. But the song was actually inspired by an incident that so many of today’s fathers experience: that of picking up one’s child from primary school during the painful marriage break-up that was ensuing. Many other songs came out of this chapter in Cockburn’s life. The powerfulness of intimacy that comes through in this expression of rawness of humanity is attested to by the ultimate compliment - being covered by popular artists like BNL.

Childhood memories | Reviewer: Stef
    ------ About the song The Old Apartment performed by Barenaked Ladies

I went to my mom's to visit a while ago,and I was told to sit and listen to this song. My thought was "Holy", you guys were singing about my childhood. My mom and step-dad constantly fought, I being the older child would get up early and clean. I know my brother had to hear the fighting, but he didn't need to see it. We moved and I went back to walk thru the house, kind of funny how the memories flood back to you all at once. I was there the day the city tore down the house, pretty bad that the crooked landlord we had,had no choice.For some strange reason this song gave us closer on that time in life,on behalf of myself, my mom, and my brother I would like to say THANK-YOU very much!!!!


about... | Reviewer: War
    ------ About the song Pinch Me performed by Barenaked Ladies

couldnt it just be about a dude who doesnt want to do what he does everyday and is tired? it seems just to describe a lazy day. and the part about him living maybe how he wish each day could be like it

Digimon | Reviewer: Jon H
    ------ About the song One Week performed by Barenaked Ladies

I first heard this song when I watched the Digimon movie a couple of years ago. I love this song so much :) I just don't really understand the message they're trying to convey. Maybe I have to look more into the lyrics. Great song, nevertheless!

Maybe a more ironic tone | Reviewer: Ryan
    ------ About the song Alcohol performed by Barenaked Ladies

I think this song is definitely a sad song, but in the guise of a happy fun time drinking song. The song is about dependance on alcohol to get through life, but the catchiness and up beat tone shows you how fun it is whilst actually drinking. It becomes even more sad because it's all pretending to be okay when there's really a large underlying problem.

My Interpretaion of When I Fall | Reviewer: NY
    ------ About the song When I Fall performed by Barenaked Ladies

This, in my opinion, is one of the greatest songs to have ever been written. I believe his song is literally about a window-washer who is afraid of heights. Everyday he finds his workplace to be dangerous and wants to be in the comfort of his home with his family. At the same time, the glass in front of him reveals a juxtaposition between two opposite element on opposing sides. He sees his reflection as a dirty house painter in contrast to the successful businessmen on the other side. The sight of the two elements together spark a desire to become successful. This means there are two things that he values highly: family and success. Every day, this man looks through the glass at what he aspires to become. He sees his goal right before his eyes, yet no matter how close he tries to get, he's blocked off by an unseen wall (the glass). The glass represents the challenges and obstacles in the way of his success. He knows the path to success is risky; he wonders if his family will be there if he fails, thus he'd have at least one item of high value.

This is my interpretation of the song. I'm not sure if this is the meaning as the Barenaked Ladies intended; however, I believe this song is very inspirational, and as such it is one of my favourite songs.

Pretty good | Reviewer: Classikkrok!
    ------ About the song One Week performed by Barenaked Ladies

I'm not a very big fan of the Barenaked Ladies, but this one's pretty good. What got me to listen to their music was when I heard Weird Al Yankovic's parody of this song. (Jerry Springer) I also like their song, "Pinch Me"

Correction to information about Dean Friedman | Reviewer: Moira Martingale
    ------ About the song McDonald's Girl performed by Barenaked Ladies

It's incorrect to say that Dean Friedman was a "one-hit wonder". In the UK he had several hit records, for example "Lucky Stars", "Lydia" and "Woman of Mine". He also released a great many albums which were successful in both the UK and the USA. Interestingly, "McDonald's Girl" was banned in the UK by the BBC for its reference to a commercial enterprise. That doesn't stop the original Friedman version from being terrific!
