Whiskey in the jar/thin lizzy. | Reviewer: Clare M | 5/31/09
Ahhh.. Whiskey in the jar is not a Thin Lizzy song. It is a traditional irish drinking song, A song which Thin Lizzy, they broke the top of the pops with their cover and kicked off their career. It is not however a Thin Lizzy original.
umm alright | Reviewer: La
FIRST OFF: This song is great and Kings of Leon perfected it, i could see how people would think that it was kinda a play off of "whisky in my bottle" but i highly doubt it
SECOND OFF: This song is about MDA, the purest form of MDMA (ecstasy). When they sell MDA they often call it "Molly".
1."White- bare naked in the night"- obvouisly they are talking about the color of the MDA, because it is known for its very white color or the "pure" look it has
2."And lookin' for some play"- drugs always play with your head, and in many songs they refer to drugs as finding you instead of you finding them
3."Just another girl that wants to rule the world
At any time or place"-Most songs that are talking about drugs usually refers to it as, she,her,etc. because wemon are so suductive and tend to get themselves into what they want. Also when somone is on drugs it takes over them, their body and their world, so its only natural to think that these things want to take over the entire world.
4."And when she gets into your head
You know she’s there to stay" - MDA is a highly addictive drug to use, and so right here i beilive they are talking about how you get that high and you know youll want more
5."You want it, She’s got it"- This showing that the drug will help, or give you with whatever you want.
6."Molly’s Chamber's gonna change your mind"-change your mind is refering to messing with your mind and putting you into a different state
7."She’s got your, Your pistol"- MDA has been known to kill people and so when it wants you to die you die, which explains what they say
8."Slow- She’s burnin’ in your soul"- You will slowly become addicted to MDA
9."With whispers in your ear"- When you get addicted to its like therte is somone reminding you all the time
ALRIGHT WELL I DONT FEEL LIKE EXPLAINING THIS ANYMORE
another meaning for the chambers | Reviewer: savannah
in a freudian read, one can infer the "chambers" to be feminine, or like the womb, so really...molly's chambers is referring to the vagina. was it an accident that the word pistol, a word that is awfully phallic and a symbol of mail virility is the last line of the song, right after the mention of said 'chamber?' i think not.
Didn't get it at first | Reviewer: Layne Staley's Ghost | 4/15/05
I didn't understand it at first, but now it makes perfect sense. Molly, Chamber, pistol..."Whiskey In A Jar!" METALLICA!
