I'm currently hearin: The Dictators- I live for Cars and Girls

I realise this is probably a terribly stupid question, but I have to ask.

I just learned of a punk rock group called The Adverts, courtesy of Ramones Radio on Rhapsody. In "Stay (Faraway So Close)" when he says "You used to stay in to watch the adverts. You used to lipsynch to the talk shows.", is he talking about advertisements as I thought, or does he mean the punk group?

He goes on to talk about lip synching to talk show hosts, so I'm pretty sure he's just talkin' TV. :)

Wow, I never thought of it like that! I think he's talking about advertisements, since the next line is about TV as well, and I don't think the band were on TV very much, considering their fairly low mainstream appeal...

Well, I don't think you'd stay in to watch a punk group, so I'm assuming he's talking about advertisements.

I've always thought he was referring to watching advertisements on TV especially considering the next bit about lipsynching to talk shows.

That's what I always thought. I just thought I'd explore another possibility. Thank you, everyone!

The Adverts were great. They were on Top of the Pops along with the Boomtown Rats on Gaye Advert's 21st birthday. Maybe Bono was at home watching them :).

Maybe! There's always multiple possibilities in his lyrics. :)
