    Ah, this is so great and I joined the forum just to post about it!

    I’m rubbish at spreadsheets so can’t figure it out but how about adding a ‘lightning’ column? I can think of two off the top of my head.

    “I had a hole in the middle where the lightning went through” in Anyone’s Ghost and “I love a storm, but I don’t love lightning” in Pink Rabbits

    Added a column for you, but haven’t marked the songs! Welcome to the board, great to have you here!

    Vines seem to pop up a couple of times in TWFM, couldn’t see a column for that so have added it.

    This is interesting. I was just thinking recently that there’s water in some capacity mentioned in almost every song and thought someone should make a list.

    *No* cake references on Trouble Will Find Me?!
    Cake backlash.

    Also, I added a column for Crown (near Jewelry).

    Thank fuck, I’ve just spent the past half hour searching for this thread!

    I’d been noticing some lyrical themes lately and went to update the spreadsheet but it’s not open for editing any more 🙁

    Karin, you’re not the only one, someone else requested access a few days ago. Will get my bum in gear and open it up again very soon!

    It should be fixed, let me know if not!

    Awesome, thanks! I hope you don’t mind but I’ve tidied it up a bit, locked the song titles column (for your scrolling pleasure), and added in Sleep Well Beast and Sunshine On My Back.
