Question about Bob Seger's "Night Moves" lyrics
Posted by: Youngen ()
Date: August 14, 2013 10:24AM

I was born after this song came out and my Dad put it on in the car driving home late last night. He said it painted the picture of his summertime youth. When I got home I looked up the lyrics and the opening is:

I was a little too tall
Could've used a few pounds
Tight pants points hardly reknown
She was a black haired beauty with big dark eyes
And points all her own sitting way up high
Way up firm and high

I get that "her points" refers to her sweater meat but what does line 3 mean? He wore tight pants to enhance his package but in reality he had a small dick?

Points are those pointy rock n roll boots that rockers used to wear back in the 60s and 70s, check out old photos of the MC5, they're usually dressed in tight pants and point boots. They're a 60s garage rock band from Detroit, where Seger got his start as a garage rock musician.

I think what he's trying to say is that he was dressed like a rock star, but hardly anyone knew or recognized him.

>Tight pants points hardly renown

So a bit punctuation would've cleared all this up.

"Tight pants, points, hardly renown ..."

Regardless of the actually meaning of line 3, Seger is an Americam icon in the arena of American music! A Michigan boy who has moved America musically for over 4 decades! Love him!

First, pizza is a faggot

And you are a retard faggot too.

He isn't talking about shoes and as a faggot, I'd assumed you'd know what he is talking about.

He is talking about tight pants showing off his junk. The renown part is saying that he hasn't gotten much action.

Him getting action is what the entire song is about.

Nd9nL, who is pizza?

Yes, tight pants have always been known for showing off junk. But then what are the "points" referenced in the same line?

Your interpretation would imply that he has more than one dick [as "points" is plural], which I doubt.

I was born after that era, but the "points" certainly could refer to pointed boots worn by rockers of the late 50s and early 60s.

The part about "hardly renowned" may imply that he hasn't gotten much action, but if you think the entire song is about him getting action, I think you are sorely mistaken... "hardly renowned" does seem like he's saying he dressed like a rock star, but he was far from famous at the time.

It is a coming of age song, and "night moves" definitely refer to foreplay, etc. But "night moves" also serves as a metaphor for the passage of time here.

It's not "hardly reknown", although that's what's all over the internet. It's "hollerin' out." His points are his cock and balls showing through his tight jeans. Her points are her nipples poppin' out.

I wonder how Bob's bowels are these days. I think at least my interpretation, is that the lady dancing was a negro.

Little known fact: the song was originally called "nice boobs" which is why those lyrics work in the song much better than "night moves".
Woke last night to the sound of thunder
comin' from the bedsheets way down under
Stated singin' a song from 1962
lord she had nice boobs
I can feel 'em closing in...
Nice boobs!
Workin' and practicin'!
Nice boobs!

Bob Seger was 17 in 1962, which was one of the last years of the bullet bra era.

You can still buy bullet bras. What Katy Did is one of my fave sites cuz it has all this pretty vintage lingerie styles. I buy lots of things from it, including bullet bras and 6 strap garter belts.

"Points of her own sitting way up high" can't be her shoes. Nobody would describe shoes as being way up high. Her points are her nipples.

"Tight pants points hardly renown". His package, rarely used for real action.

When Night Moves came out, I thought it was a forgettable nothing of a tune,
and not being able to totally make out the lyrics therefore didn't concern me.
I never related to coming-of-age songs like that, and in this case the
music wasn't interesting. So when I hear the song now, I think,
"Oh yeah a classic I guess, whatever". The rest of his songs were just
slightly better, Still The Same and Hollywood Nights.

If a BSSBB song comes on, I don't get excited.

However, if a Bruce Springsteen song comes on, I actually change the channel.

He’s really saying, tight pants, points, hall of renoun.
He’s got some tight pants that show off his excited, engorged junk by causing some interesting bulges with wrinkle points in the fabric. These are impressive and belong in a ‘Hall of Renoun’. (Check the definition of Renoun on Google for further clarifications)
Points all her own sitting way up high is referring to her equally apparent attributes of renoun. Way up firm and high.
