Seriously, their name is Bare Naked Ladies, so now I'm all excited. But it's just 4 dudes.

And on top of that, their music loving sucks.

Itíd be pretty cool to happen upon a band of naked ladies who rocked out.

Wonder what their band name would be called tho since the obvious choice is already taken.

Maybe if people weren't such prudes we could get a mainstream band that really was 4 naked women.

https://www.reddit.com/r/FanTheories/comments/300c65/the_barenaked_ladies_song_one_week_is_about_a_man/

quote:

The Barenaked Ladies song 'One Week' is about a man who murdered his partner.

I propose that, although the band has stated that the song is more or less about nothing, that it is in fact about a man who murdered his girlfriend in a fit of rage three days ago, and is now sitting in the living room with her corpse, slowly losing his mind as he forgets to eat and formulates a story to tell the police. Let's look at the lyrics:

*It's been one week since you looked at me*
*Cocked your head to the side and said "I'm angry"*

The couple was having an argument seven days ago.

*Five days since you laughed at me saying*
*"Get that together come back and see me"*


Five days ago, they decided to take a break and he moved out, perhaps to stay on a friend's couch. He can come back when he gets his poo poo together.

*Three days since the living room*
*I realized it's all my fault, but couldn't tell you*


Three days ago he came back and another argument ensued. This time he couldn't control himself and lashed out with a golf club. He didn't intend to kill her, but she died and got blood on his shirt.

*Yesterday you'd forgiven me*
*but it'll still be two days till I say I'm sorry*


Yesterday marks the second day without food or sleep. The entire time he has been talking to her corpse, but yesterday he imagined her talking back. He imagined her saying that everything would be fine and their fighting and breakup weren't his fault. He also believes that in two days time, Monday morning, someone will notice her missing and call the police. He'll be sorry when they show up.

The first rap verse is our antihero sinking into hunger and panic induced delirium. Thoughts of sushi and vanilla race through his mind, along with random memories as he looks around the living room and sees LeAnn Rimes and Bert Kaempfert cds on the shelf.


*How can I help it if I think you're funny when you're mad*
*Trying hard not to smile though I feel bad*

This here is the minor argument that escalated into the full-blown fight that occurred just before he murdered her.


*I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral*
*Can't understand what I mean?*
*Well, you soon will*



This to me is the real clincher. '*Can't understand what I mean, well you soon will*' is one of the most sinister lines in all of pop music. He is referring to her own imminent funeral.


*I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve*
*I have a history of taking off my shirt*

More on the shirt in a moment.

*It's been one week since you looked at me*
*Threw your arms in the air*
*and said "You're crazy"*
*Five days since you tackled me*
*I've still got the rug burns on both my knees*

Again, referring to the fights five and seven days prior.


*It's been three days since the afternoon*
*You realized it's not my fault*
*not a moment too soon*
*Yesterday you'd forgiven me*
*And now I sit back and wait til you say you're sorry*

Our man is bargaining with her [well, himself] now. If she'd just apologise, it will all be fine and it can all go back to normal.

The next rap verse is again largely about food and food accessories, and the Akira Kurosawa films on the shelf. The main thing to note in this verse is the following aside:

*Gonna get a set a' better clubs*
*Gonna find the kind with tiny nubs*
*Just so my irons aren't always flying off the back-swing*

He's still in a fever pitch stream of consciousness rant, but as he looks around and sees the bloodstained golf club, he makes a mental note to dispose of it. If the police ask about the suspiciously missing club, he can say he needed a new one in order to perform better. Rational? No. But neither is he currently. The song goes on,

*How can I help it if I think you're funny when you're mad*
*Tryin' hard not to smile though I feel bad*
*I'm the kind of guy who laughs at a funeral*
*Can't understand what I mean?*
*Well, you soon will*
*I have a tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve*
*I have a history of losing my shirt*

The shirt. Covered in blood, he must get rid of it before Monday. He'll just tell the cops that he has a history of losing his shirt if they ask for any reason.

*It's been one week since you looked at me*
*Dropped your arms to your sides*
*and said "I'm sorry"*
*Five days since I laughed at you and said*
*"You just did just what I thought you were gonna do"*
*Three days since the living room*
*We realized we're both to blame,*
*but what could we do?*
*Yesterday you just smiled at me*
*Cause it'll still be two days till we say we're sorry*

He has come to realise that perhaps they both had valid points in their arguments after all, and that both are to blame for the disintegration of their relationship. The last line, '*It'll still be two days till we say we're sorry'* represents to me a small moment of acceptance and revelation. When the police turn up at the door, he will turn himself in, bloodstained shirt and all.

*Birchmount Stadium, home of the Robbie*

I think it goes without saying that we all know what this line means.

**tl;dr: One Week is a whirlwind adventure following one man's journey from fighting with and murdering his spouse through insanity and the five stages of grief to eventual acceptance. And Sailor Moon.**

This is very disturbing.

It's a bad song from the 90s, so whoever wrote this worthless, generic-rear end edgelord analysis would be well out of their teens, even seven years ago. Gives me the creeps, knowing there's people like that out there...

I was at a fundraiser event for a local mental health advocacy group a few years ago and Steven Page was the keynote speaker. In between songs he told stories and made lots of jokes about cocaine and prostitutes. Tbh he sounds like a cool dude

Also their cover of lovers in a dangerous time is a fuckin banger
