Made Of Stone by The Stone Roses

Contrary to popular belief, Made Of Stone by The stone Roses is a song about some decorative garden features that The Stone Roses bought at a local garden centre. It possible that the song is ironic because such garden features tend to be made of concrete, not stone.

The lyric "I'm standing warm against the cold/Now that the flames have taken hold" is a reference to a garden heater that Mani gave to John Squire when he passed his driving test(it was his second attempt). The Stone Roses were famous for throwing regular barbecue parties throughout the year, this is mentioned in Made Of Stone: "And for as far as I can see/Ten twisted [BBQ]grills grin back at me".
