Spoon Don't You Evah Evah Evah is substituted for 'ever' for no apparent reason. There isn't even a rhyme scheme it tries to follow, except for that they change 'lover' to 'lovah' and 'never' to 'nevah'. It would have been as easy to keep the normal... - JC Foster
SSQ Synthicide Synthicide There's a line in the song that goes "killing the pain, synthicide". So I think it's saying that listening to synthesizer music or synthpop music will help get rid of you sadness, hurt and other negative emotions. But "synthicide" is definitely not a real word. To me, the word implies murdering somebody with a synthesizer (beating them to death with it I guess LOL) or that you've killed a synthesizer, LOL. The song's from the 80s but definitely wasn't a hit. But the lead singer of SSQ was a young Stacy Q., who would a few years later have a hit with and become a "one hit wonder" with her catchy song Two Of Hearts. Synthicide's an OK song but I think the title and lyrics hurt it somewhat and that's why it wasn't a hit, but yeah I've definitely heard better. - Edward
