Song Meanings
Hey, I'm bored, and I was thinking that it would be a good idea to have a thread about what we think the meanings are behind our favorite Harvey Danger songs. It's fun, and a way of getting some posts in this damn part of the board, lol. I'd start... but I'm tired.

Gotta get up, gotta get out, gotta get home before the morning comes.

I couldn't agree more, I also think that "Wooly" was airplay worthy,
and I could've made a kick-ass video for it!!!

I actually posted the idea on "Da Browns" in 2000, I think...
I'm now doing this from memory:

(Guitar intro)
It starts of with a pan shot into a girls bedroom,
kinda like Kevin's (the football player?) girlfriend in "Daria"...
She's got a boatload of stuffed animals (all named) on her bed,
with barely enough room for Sean and her to sit on,
which is where we find them...

He begins to sing...
He's singing to her, but barely turning his head to make eye contact...
Except to look coyly at her during "2nd dates"...
To give his hands something to do, he grabs "fuzzum wuzzums",
a medium sized stuffed rabbit at "secret language"...

At "everyone watching would know", (slight pause after)
he realizes he's not getting through to her,
and as the guitar's gaining momentum,
Sean pulls the head off off the rabbit, and heaves it....

He's looking right at her, as he now decapitates "teddy snookums"
and yells "here's the ball, here's the pole" to demonstrate,
they too are not "biologically tethered"

At "whatever", he gets up to leave, and you see the band playing in the background...
Sean turns back towards her to drive the point home;
"And I never much cared much, too much to begin with"

Out the front door Sean goes,
holding the headless torso of her now shattered dreams of "true love"...
She's running to catch him, and in someone else's yard,
he turns to tell her
"I will not take your possibilities under my care"...

Still singing, he climbs some boards nailed to a tree into an empty tree-house...
(Hey, you asked)
He sticks his head out the window to exclaim
"It's a courtship I can't stand"
He throws the bears body back down to her at the last "no", in
"no, no, no, No, No, NO, NO!!!"

He's now sitting in the tree-house, in a corner considering
"Oh what bliss it would be"...
At the last "I'm elated now-howwww",
he spots a stuffed toy in the tree house,
and chucks it off-camera...

OR
In black and white,
he's singing the whole song,
tied to a chair in Julie's baseme.....

KIDDING!!!!!!

Please don't bash me too hard,
It's a idea from over 7 yrs ago...
