Sometimes music gets self-referential... Here are some of Radio X's favourite lyrics about other people's lyrics. It's all SO post-modern.
"So let the love tear us apart, I've found the cure for a broken heart."
"Put Sufjan Stevens on and we'll play your favorite song / 'Chicago' bursts to life and your sweet smile remembers you."
"And what's a Wonderwall anyway?" Fran Healy claimed he was inspired to write this song after hearing the Oasis classic.
"And I've seen him with girls of the night and he told Roxanne to put on her red light." (The Monkeys reference Mr Sting and The Police)
"You stole the sun from my heart" (They're quoting their own song!)
"The blood on the tracks and it must be mine The fool on the hill and I feel fine" (another Beatles reference. Well, two actually)
"Your needle and your damage done" (from the Neil Young classic)
