Scott from Tamassee ScWhen he says it's about masturbation is because the line that says... Fingertips have memories Mine can't forget the curves of your body And when I feel a bit naughty I run it up the flagpole and see ..
The way this is back-to-back lead you to believe he's remembering a girl he had sex with so he's going to run his fingers up his flagpole and think about her while masturbating. This doesn't discount your ideas about the rest of the song but he does jump around a lot which real musicians do. So I believe it's about multiple topics.
Ailurophile 64 from 39180Masturbation? Where'd you get that? When I was in the Army, the phrase "Run it up the flagpole and see who salutes" meant to test an idea's merits before bringing it up to the brass (bosses). It also meant to try out the idea BEFORE getting others' opinions. Context. Never once did we use it to suggest self-pleasure.
Aleks from London"Run it up the flagpole and see who salutes..." - that has to be an over elaborate metaphor for masturbation.
Tommy from Elmhurst, Ilit may be about how society drives people insane and all but NOT AT ALL about the last thing
Rod from Lisboa, Portugal"Flagpole Sitta" has been the theme music song of British sitcom Peep Show since the second series.
Danielle from Centerville, Tn"Flagpole Sitta" was remixed with techo/ dance music by artist Hairy Canary. I received a lot of sampler cds from a local music store and there was one that had "Flagpole Sitta" on it. It includes the original radio release, a techno/ dance music remix, the techno version acapella, and the instrumental techno music. I love the original versions of the song (edited and un-edited) and I though this was a neat take on the song itself.
Cal from Baltimore, Mdthis song is great i mean its fantastic just a simple gritty song that is great to just do whatever to the song is great
Tj from Champaign, IlThose "facts" are completely made up.

Sean from Toronto, CanadaThere are two versions of this song being circulated; one that is "censored" (taking out the "God" in ***damn) and one that is "uncensored" (leaving it in).
Nikki from Remington, VaThis song is featured in 'Disturbing Behavior'.
A.j. from Chicago, IlThis song is in American Pie (1999), Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star (2003) and Scooby-Doo 2 (2004).
Magda from Addison, IlI TOTALLY agree. My friend and I were hanging out while listening to this song, and I started to do an air guitar (yeah, I'm a dork). I jumped and landed on my bed back-down, but I landed on the edge and I completely wiped out. My friend still finds this hilarious to this day.
Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation" was just a minor hit when it was released in 1968, but a 2002 remix made the song a global smash, taking it to #1 in a number of countries, including Australia and the UK.
16-tear-old Lorde wrote the lyrics to "Royals" at home in just half an hour. She was inspired by the "ridiculous, unrelatable, unattainable opulence" that runs through such albums as Kanye West and Jay-Z's Watch the Throne and Lana Del Rey's Born To Die.
