Mreenal from Darjeeling, Indiai guess Mr. Richard Wright wrote this song & also 'Remember a day' in order to compensate for Mr. Syd Barrett's absence..
Steven from Rky Mt, Nci read somewhere that rick wrote this about he and his sister in their youth actually riding a see saw. "she goes up, he goes down..." he did so in an attempt to write a song in the fasion that syd wrote; from a child-like point of view.
Oldpink from New Castle, InThis is not just a song about the loss of childhood. It's a song about the loss of a child! "Sits on a stick in the river/Laughter in his sleep/Sister's throwing stones, hoping for a hit/He doesn't know, so then/She goes up, while he goes down, down" That's right, it's a song about a little girl killing her own brother by hitting him with a rock while he is floating on a log in the river, knocking him in the water, where he drowns..down, down. Strange, to say the least, for such a disarmingly sweet sounding song.
Meg Griffin from Quahog, RiRIP Richard Wright~~~
Fish from Edmonton, AbThis is an amazing song!
Michael from Oxford, -Far from the most boring song I've ever heard, actually.
The Eurythmics' "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)" came top of a 2013 Spotify poll to find out which songs music fans most commonly hear people singing incorrectly. Many believe Annie Lennox is singing: "Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to disagree?"
"Cleveland Rocks" was written by an Englishman. Ian Hunter wrote the song after touring America in the late '70s and finding that Cleveland was by far the most receptive city to his brand of Glam Rock.
