or is it just me? I like most of his music, but usually have no idea what he is singing about.

Thoughts?

Favorite clips?

I don't understand 40% of the lyrics to songs I like. It took me forever before I figured out that Jimi Hendrix was gay ('Scuse me while I kiss this guy)

I've always enjoyed this one... and the lyrics are quite clear:

Fantastic performance, even if it was the worst air guitar you ever did see.

Also not Cocker but how 'bout the lines from Manfred Mann's Blinded by the Light- "Wrapped up like a douche, another roamer in the night" and "little early birdy gave my anus curly-whirly". That's just kinda' wrong, huh?

I am pretty sure that Bruce Springsteen was the songwriter responsible.I enjoy listening to the extended version that Manfred Mann produced and which is harder to find than it ought to be.
