Poses

by

Rufus Wainwright



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This song is about Wainwright's fear of success. He fears what his future self will be and is worried he will fall into the showbiz stuff and end up wandering around New York drunk, a nobody. (thanks, Davis - Montreal, Canada)

Writing great prog metal isn't easy, especially when it's for 60 musicians.
They Might Be GiantsThey Might Be Giants
Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.

His keyboard work helped define the Muscle Shoals sound and make him an integral part of many Neil Young recordings. Spooner is also an accomplished songwriter, whose hits include "I'm Your Puppet" and "Cry Like A Baby."

A band so baffling, even their names were contrived. Check your score in the Ramones version of Fact or Fiction.
