Daze – Noun
a dazed condition; state of bemusement: After meeting the author, I was in a daze for a week.
The opening lyric to Led Zeppelin’s “Good Times Bad Times”. This is what I consider to be a smart lyric created by a thinking bad (assuming they created it). Not only is it a double meaning but it actually makes sense. In the days of my youth, a time the singer is remembering, and the daze being the part of not having the same understanding at his current age. I think lyrics like these are what separate the mediocre with the great.
Here’s an example. Mac Miller’s song “Knock Knock” contains the lyric New Kicks Give Me Cushion Like Whoopie. The lyric is referring to a whoopie cushion. A whoopie cushion is an item that makes it sound like your farting. This is still good lyric though because it’s a thinking lyric but it doesn’t have the same effect as the Led Zeppelin lyric. This is the reason the Led Zeppelin is better than Mac Miller.
