Overall Meaning

The lyrics of The Avalanches's song "Two Hearts in 3/4 Time" are quite simple, but their meaning may not be so clear to everyone. At the beginning of the song, we hear the repeated line "Can't you hear it? Money." This is a clear reference to the role of money in society, and how it often occupies a dominant place in people’s lives. The repetition of this line underscores the way that money can dominate our thoughts and our desires, and how we may not even be aware of it until it is pointed out to us.


Following this opening, the lyrics take on a more surreal and dream-like quality, with references to diamond-studded stars, polka-dotted moons, and diamond-studded stars. These lines may be seen as further commentary on the way that material objects can consume our thoughts and desires, distorting our perception of reality. The repetition of the phrase "Or a diamond-studded star, or a polka dot balloon" further emphasizes this point, with the line feeling more nonsensical and disconnected from reality each time it is repeated.


Towards the end of the song, the lyrics shift focus once again, with repeated references to "Avalanche Rock". The repetition of this phrase gives the impression of a chant or a call to action, with the suggestion being that music and dancing (represented by "Avalanche Rock") may be the antidote to the materialism and distraction that have been present throughout the song.


Overall, the lyrics of "Two Hearts in 3/4 Time" may be seen as a biting commentary on the way that money and materialism can dominate our thoughts and desires, obscuring our perception of reality and leading us away from what is truly important in life.
