Nope, she just shockingly knew Linds by name.
...and to think, she's been under my nose this whole time!

The only thing Stevie remembers is this sort of stuff: you can sing "Stand Back" to the chords of "Little Red Corvette."
I actually felt that was an intentional decision, so that fans can still bring their own interpretations to the songs without her putting it all into black & white.

Truth be told, it always dims my enjoyment of a song when I have in my mind exactly what I think it means, and then find out it's about the songwriter's dog or something. I'd rather not know and have that little bit of mystery.

Hmm, kind of like a painting?

ITA! And I am not so interested on finding out what the song is exactly about. I believe that most writers do and do not know what their songs are about.They write some words inspired by something and then they throw in some other words, which may be or may not be relevant to the rest. But the general idea is there. But anyhow, I prefer to make my own interpretation, whether it is poetry or songwriting or whatever.
The reason I asked about Edge of Seventeen earlier on, is that some imply that it is not about what Stevie says it is and I was just curious. As to the particular song, I have no interpetation of my own whatsoever.

It was very poorly edited, at least for broadcast. Lord knows why they aired so much talking and so little of the actual songs.

Best Storyteller, if there could be any doubt: Tom Waits. Now there's a man who knows how to tell a good story.

I used to think the same about Nick Cave (that he would be a good storyteller) but in interviews I find him surprisingly cocky or delibarately silly.
Tom Waits is a much more serious and devoted artist IMO, even though I am not his biggest fan.

True. I remember looking up Long May You Run by Neil Young on http://www.songfacts.com/ (sweet site btw) after it had touched me, only to find out he wrote it about he hearse.

So, I guess it's nice that FM lyrics aren't really clear, because then they are able to apply to whatever I may be going through. At the same time, I'm fascinated by the drama in this band, and I wanna know!!!!
