Shuffle Song Of The Day (10/25/18): “There She Goes” By The La’s

“There She Goes” is a song by the English rock band The La’s that was originally released as a single in 1988, but then re-released on their 1990 self titled album. Deciding the re-release the song turned out to be a very smart move for them, as the song went on to chart at Number 13 in the UK and was also popular in the United States. I’m surprised more musicians don’t try to re-release their songs. Times and music taste change, and if it worked for them, why wouldn’t it work for others? There’s a lot of debate about the true meaning behind this song. One side thinks it’s nothing more than a love song, while the other side thinks it’s about heroin addiction. I guess in a way it could be about both, seeing as a heroin addiction is nothing more than falling in love with it, so maybe they’re making a comparison between falling in love with a girl and falling in love with heroin. The band has stayed quiet about the meaning to leave it open to the interpretation of the listener, which is part of what makes music so cool. I personally think it’s clearly a song about lead singer Lee Mavers’s heroin addiction , but take a look at the lyrics below and decide for yourself.

LYRICS

There she goes

There she goes again

Racing through’ my brain

And I just can’t contain

This feelin’ that remains

There she blows

There she blows again

Pulsing through my vein

And I just can’t contain

This feelin’ that remains

There she goes, there she goes again

She calls my name, pulls my train

No one else could heal my pain

But I just can’t contain

This feelin’ that remains

There she goes

There she goes again

Chasing down my lane

And I just can’t contain

This feelin’ that remains

There she goes

There she goes

There she goes

    • My local alternative station used to play this song all the time when I was growing up. I’m really glad this popped up on my shuffle today because I haven’t heard it in years. Great song, and definitely one that brings you back
