    and searched for the meaning of the lyrics.

    MarksFriggin:
    Howard said he bought that Hum song ''Stars'' and listened to that about 57 times. Howard said he was looking up online to see what the meaning of the song is. He said there's a lot of theories about that. Howard said there is no definitive meaning. Howard said this song really fucks him up. He said he just thinks about what it means to him. Howard played ''Stars'' and said he loves that power chord part of the song. Howard said he has to get a guitar. He said he wants to be able to play that part. He told Fred he should do that.



    Hum- Stars
    She thinks she missed the train to Mars, she's out back counting stars
    She thinks she missed the train to Mars, she's out back counting stars

    She's not at work, she's not at school
    She's not in bed, I think I finally broke her
    I bring her home everything I want, and nothing that she needs

    I thought she'd be there holding daisies, she always waits for me
    She thinks she missed the train to Mars, she's out back counting stars

    I found her out back sitting naked looking up and looking dead
    A crumpled yellow piece of paper, with seven nines and tens

    I thought she'd be there holding daisies, she always waits for me
    She thinks she missed the train to Mars, she's out back counting stars

    I thought you'd be there holding daisies, you always wait for me
    She thinks she missed the train to Mars, she's out back counting stars

    Great song (brings me back to highschool) but I have never paid attention to the lyrics.

    After reading them I still am not sure what the guys is talking about.

    I'm guessingto Howard this song represents his empty marriage to a vapid moron.

    She's not in school, she doesn't really work, she's not in bed. While Howard may think he "broke" her (ie conditioned her to live his lifestlye) in reality she is out on the town living the delusional fantasy life, attempting to suck up to the rich and famous (out back counting stars)?

    He "thought she would be their holding daisys, she always waits for me" ie Howard believed the bs pre-marriage Beth fed to him about him being the center of her universe. How she loved staying home and basing her life around his. This was all bullshit

    She's always half naked looking dead in their photo shoots

    A crumpled yellow piece of paper, with seven nines and tens? Would that be the pre-nup/ divorce papers that stipulate all the cash she will be owed?

    Howard had the band in studio in 1995 and told them what the song meant.
    They disagreed of course....but that didn't stop Howard.

    Musically, nothing will ever top Howard questioning Avril Lavigne at length about the meaning of that intellectual classic - "Sk8ter Boi"

    Back then Howard said the song was about all those guys who just knew they were gonna make it in radio, they were gonna have the huge career ... But they missed the train to Mars, and now they're just outback counting stars ...

    By the way, he does this Hum bit every couple of years. He's so moved by the song, it's beautiful, it kills him ... Yet he didn't even buy the song until Thanksgiving vacation, 19 years after having them on his show. That's because music isn't actually important to Howard, but he thinks it should be (he has rock star hair and scarves, after all), so he pretends like it is. And I still maintain that he's just using up a gift card someone recently gave him.

    How's this for a water cooler conversation starter in the year 2013: "Hey, are you guys into iTunes?"

    I always assume Rock Songs like that are about drugs.

    "I found her out back sitting naked looking up and looking dead"

    Sounds like someone fucked up on opiates.

    "I bring her home everything I want, and nothing that she needs"

    The guy brings what he wants, drugs, but that's not what she truly needs. And she's out back counting stars because she's just given up on life.
