Metaphores[edit]

There are many many covers, to many to list here, only list the most famous ones, not the fleeting 15 minutes of fame , esp if its rap its fleeting effort from some punk.

The gun shot is never actually a real gun shot. "He shot me down".. how can she sing if she has been shot down ? Answer: Its a metaphorical gun shot. 202.92.33.210 02:20, 15 August 2007 (UTC)

The above comment is nonsense. In Kill Bill, the gunshot is clearly not metaphorical, and it is quite common for a ballad to be told from the point of view of someone dying. If a listener sleeps better at night pretending it must be metaphorical, fine with me, but there is no evidence supporting that view. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.140.52.140 (talk) 22:08, 8 December 2008 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Is it possible to link to the German wikipedia? I tried to link the artist Rainald Grebe in this article - I do not know how to do it... Thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.111.104.103 (talk) 19:19, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

question:Who is the song most attributed to? Of 2 choices ,Cher or Nancy, what would be the popular answer;undoubtly Nancy,but the correct answer to above question would be Quentin Tarantino, who resurrected the song in "Kill Bill 1". —Preceding unsigned comment added by 79.97.91.205 (talk) 10:25, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

"Correct" to the younger generation, maybe. To the larger audience who've been listening to it for decades? Unquestionably Nancy Sinatra. The article is erroneous in it's assertion that her version was 'obscure'. 24.16.164.87 (talk) 04:04, 23 December 2011 (UTC)
