Jem - They

I always thought this song sounded kind of ethereal and that the lyrics were about a schizophrenic who is having paranoid delusions about the mysterious and malevolent "They" who are all knowing and issue all the rules that the masses must follow unquestioningly like lemmings. She believes she is the only one who can see through the lies and is trying to warn people, but no one will listen.

That’s my interpretation anyway.

Makes it kind of fit the Halloween theme that way.

I have no idea who this is—never heard of her before—but it’s great! It makes me wonder what else is out there that I don’t know about. I walk around thinking I’m hip and know everything but the truth is that I don’t know a damn thing and I’ve got a lot to learn.

Unbearable - She is a Welsh singer and I'm not certain, but I don't think she has ever been very popular here. I was just lucky to hear her a few times overseas, so I wouldn't beat yourself up.

After all there are more things in heaven and earth, than are dreamt of...

A Shakespearean quote.

How's that for hip? ;)
