Rasputina Lyrics


Who are they? Rasputina - or the Travelling Ladies Cello
Society; headed by Melora Creager, Julie Kent, and
Agnieszka Rybska, have been entertaining crowds since 1992,
when Melora placed an ad requesting cellists for a rock
band. Julia Kent, originally a Canadian, responded, and
Rasputina was born. So why do they call themselves
Rasputina? According to Melora, "We had a song called
Rasputina; I was just into Rasputin at the time, and it
seemed to have all the perfect connotations for who we
wanted to be, or what we were trying to More...

Review about Rasputina songs
Love it, but what does it mean?? | Reviewer: lostnlimbo
    ------ About the song Saline the Salt Lake Queen performed by Rasputina

Rasputina is unique and awesome in telling historical stories in their music. Only problem is what do some of them mean? Where do they get the 1/2 I completely do not understand! For the longest time, I thought this song was actually about the desert queen, a metaphor for the forceful recruiting of Christianity. Only back the I had never actually read the lyrics,lol. No way is this anything of that.. So what else could it be??

Dig Ophelia & Hamlet | Reviewer: Miss Adelaide Rabanis
    ------ About the song Dig Ophelia performed by Rasputina

This song is glorius in that it perfectly describes how Ophelia (Hamlet's girlfriend and the daughter of the man he killed) goes mad, gives flowers to everyone, then drowns herself- whether on accident or on purpose, however, it up for debate

smashing exclamation point. | Reviewer: mr. roosif
    ------ About the song The New Zero performed by Rasputina

I'm not really a ghosthunter, and i dont care too much about nirvana. but this song is deffinitely about kurt me thinks. raspu-whats her name. definitely played cello for them. raspuawesome as hell, and i have a dick, i'm a dude. forget these illiterate pricks and enjoy fine music (if you're unfortunate enough to ever find it in this world.)

Awesome | Reviewer: kat
    ------ About the song The New Zero performed by Rasputina

I love how people with no musical skill or talent can speak ill of a band that works so hard to make music that is out of the box. Go listen to your pop candy hip hop crap and leave the real music to the adults. This song is so perfect. I love it. The measure of it is amazing. By the by i am a prof. and have alot of respect for this outsider music.

    ------ About the song Gingerbread Coffin performed by Rasputina

I love Rasputina. I originally looked them up because I heard they used an electric cello, and then I found this song. I love it! so creppy and different. very inspirational for my writing, along with My Orphanage :)

Utter perfection | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Rusty The Skatemaker performed by Rasputina

A lack of words overcome me when I attempt to say anything at all toward this song. There is a strange numbess which I can drown in when I hear this song. Though the numbness is lonely, it's almost warming and cradling. For me, that is. Yes, my eyes swell when I hear this song, not out of sadness, no, but some melody in the notes just carry that effect.
The cellos are in themselves a beauty.

Pretty; Melancholy | Reviewer: Shelby
    ------ About the song Dig Ophelia performed by Rasputina

This is a very pretty song. I like the ironic element - 'tap the table, here's more bad luck'; 'water spreads the small seed, water kills the tall weed'.

When listening to this song, I also generally thought of superstitions or wicca/magick. It's peaceful yet melancholy. I like it.

I love this :) | Reviewer: Tammi F.
    ------ About the song Rose K. performed by Rasputina

This is probably my third favorite song by Rasputina. Of course, I only have Radical Recital and Oh Perilous World, so I can't talk. But I love the way it flows and the truthfullness. Its so sweet and sincere.

Amazing | Reviewer: Malik
    ------ About the song Girls' School performed by Rasputina

Rasputina's lyrics are amazing. It's really tiring to hear so many bands going on about how they are lovesick or heartbroken, and it's nice to find some substance in lyrics. :) I can make a whole story in my head from Rasputina's lyrics.

hate to feel | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song A Quitter performed by Rasputina

i think this song is about isolation. the one person that brought her joy, her son, the one person she was connected to, died in front of her. when she talks about things like the friends she never had, it seems like shes lonely and is seeing how empty her life is without her boy. i dont have children. but i feel for this song. the lonely feelings really hit me hard
