1. Maxwell’s Silver Hammer by The Beatles
That murderous college student, Maxwell, is the subject of this lighthearted tune. The entire song, from the lyrics to the music, might be interpreted as a reflection on the unexpected turns and surprises that life throws at you.
At first, you would think it’s a love song because of the way it begins, which sounds like a parody of Beatles love songs introducing two people to go to the movies on a date.
Everything about the song, from the upbeat melody and vocals to the ominous bassline, seems to be at odds with the song’s subject matter, which seems to be about the unexpected turns life takes. Some things may not be as they appear.
This tune doesn’t get nearly enough credit. Certainly when stacked up against the Beatles’ other discography.
2. Silver Springs by Fleetwood Mac
I interpret this song to be about a relationship in which the guy cheated on the girl, but she still feels that he loves her and will never leave her since they shared something unique that can’t be taken away.
And did you say she was pretty?… maybe I don’t want to know,” the girl asks her ex after hearing about his new girlfriend. She’s sure that no one else could love him as much as she does.
3. Silver Lining by Rilo Kiley
Whether it’s with a romantic partner or a member of her band, I believe this song laments the termination of a connection of some kind.
Both could be related to her band. When the sun is obscured by clouds, they are said to have a silver lining. The inside of a cloud will take on a color somewhere between orange and gold as the sun begins to set.
According to my reading of the lyrics, they are lamenting the end of a once-promising and beautiful relationship, notably one that the narrator wished to end.
4. Silver, Blue, and Gold by Bad Company
I sense in this song a celebration of one’s own innermost self. Finding true love and being able to love someone forever is cause for celebration.
He wants all of the vastness of the sky for himself. The potential for success in locating her…the one…represented by IT is boundless.
I know I can love her the way she deserves, so give me the sky and I’ll keep looking for my rainbow. Whoever finds true love and is also truly loved is the rightful champion in this world.
5. Silver Coin by Angus and Julia Stone
This great song with silver in the title is about not having the guts to communicate how you feel about someone, and then working up the nerve to do so, only to find out that it’s too late.
Having the opportunity to study abroad in another nation for a period of six months, during which time you meet someone and fall in love with them, but you are unable to bring yourself to tell them that you feel this way or that you love them.
Your time together has come to an end, and as you head back to your hometown, you feel a pang of regret that you did not have the opportunity to tell the other person how much you loved them before you parted ways. They will always be a thing of the past.y.
6. Man On The Silver Mountain by Rainbow
Most listeners, however, assume the song is about a god or mythological character. Then there’s Prometheus, who managed to steal fire from the Gods on Mount Olympus, and Moses, who climbed Mount Sinai to acquire the Ten Commandments (“come down with fire”).
In many of the world’s religions, a holy man or woman leaves their people to travel to a mountain, which represents a meeting point between the spiritual and material worlds, and returns with enlightenment.
It is believed that Jesus’ transfiguration took place on a mountain, where he was transfigured, spoke to Moses and Elijah, and then heard the voice of God declare him to be his son in the sight of several of the apostles.
The ancients also linked the sun with the wheel, with the latter typically serving as a symbol of the revolving nature of time (days, months, and years all being calculated by the constant rotations of heavenly bodies).
That’s why it makes sense that when Dio sings, “I’m the wheel… I’m the sun… I’m the day… I’m the night…” he’s alluding to these things.
7. Silver Moons by Sunset Rubdown
The opening line makes it quite clear that he is lamenting parting ways with a group of friends with whom he had grown close.
“Festivities in my honour” are most likely going to be his going away parties. He’s leaving, so he’s “passing the baton” to the newcomers. In honor of all the late nights they spent together, I give you Silver moons.
After he decided to part ways with them, the remainder of the group assumed ownership. He seems to be saying, “inform their fathers that i’m on my way,” to signify that he is transitioning from boyhood or adolescence into manhood.
8. Silver And Gold by U2
For a large portion of the 1980s, South Africa was ruled by the racist apartheid regime. If the lyrics are to be believed, Bishop Tutu has encouraged the significant Western nations to implement economic sanctions on his own country in an effort to bring about change there.
A law mandating such restrictions was passed by the US Congress in 1986. Ronald Reagan’s veto of the bill was overridden by the Senate. Lyrically, this track vents dissatisfaction at Western hesitance in doing the right thing.
It is common parlance that “silver and gold” represent the sum total of a country’s economic might. The entire situation is summed up by the saying, “A prize fighter in a corner is told, ‘Hit where it hurts.
By referring to the big Western nations, Tutu urges them to “strike where it hurts” (impose sanc ontions). It’s a magnificent sentence that captures the strength of the West, the disappointment that they’ve chosen inaction, and the certainty that action will bring about a better future.
In 1994, multiracial elections marked the official end of Apartheid.
