Interpretations:Something Grabbed Ahold Of My Hand

From This Might Be A Wiki

Petulia Clark[edit]

TMBG, in this segment, seem to be going for the early 1960's Britpop of Petula Clark and her ilk; whatever they're aiming at, to me, the unfinished story this interrupted song suggests may just be the most hilarious thing TMBG have ever done. Makes you wonder what her "troubles" were! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:36, September 10, 2006

Doesn't that voice have more of a country twang? Maybe it's supposed to be like Tammy Wynette or Loretta Lynn. --Nehushtan (talk) 22:44, 10 February 2020 (EST)

Plush doll[edit]

This song is about a plush doll from one of those crane games, from the doll's point of view. The doll's owner got the doll damaged and dirty, and it doesn't like that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:35, May 6, 2007

Interpretation 3[edit]

I know there isn't any real answer here, but I wonder what the "something" was. What could possibly grab ahold of someone's hand and thereby cause them a lot of grief? It's almost like the storyline would have to be a comedy of errors that is set off by this "something" grabbing ahold of the protagonist's hand. (Much like the story line of the film, "My Sassy Girl".) I do like the suggestion by the person above that perhaps the protagonist is a child's toy, as well. Kids do some crazy things to their unfortunate toys. - Ms Fernandez 13:40, January 19, 2008

No meaning[edit]

Something grabbed a hold of her hand, she didn't know what had her hand, but that's when all her troubles began. Simple as that. - Salio-Shally 23:45, June 14, 2008

I think it important to admit that there is no necessary meaning to it. It's just creepy. Queezbo 08:00, 25 July 2008 (UTC)


Perhaps it's a parody of Columbia's verse in the Rocky Horror Picture Show's "Time Warp"? That's what I first thought, at least. (Then again, Columbia's singing parts could be Petula Clark parodies themselves.) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:51, November 25, 2011
