The Great Song with a Speech Impediment Thread...

Some famous songs use a speech impediment as part of their hook... or as a way to make the lyrics work.... lets find'em all..

I'll start--> "you ain't seen nothin' yet" bachman turner overdrive

Randy was goofing off in the studio and mocking his brother Tim who stuttered... the teasing was going on with the tape rolling and their producer LOVED the part with bbbbb bbbbb baby... and they kept it!

Do you know any songs with a 'speech impediment'?

Just one of my favorite songs of all time: "My Generation" by the Who, esp. Live at Leeds.

I remember reading somewhere that in that song they were panning the speech impediment caused by some drug then popular in England (ludes maybe?) which caused that stuttering talking.
It caused quite a stir at the time as to whether or not it should be banned.

What the heck is Jim Croce saying? Sounds like: 'That's the way it easily goes, let's forget all that..."
Is he supposed to be saying 'usually' or does he mean 'easily'. Guess it could make sense either way with some qualification.

That always bugged the you-know-what out of me when he sang fi-wa.
That's just plain not how Elmer would have said it.

Tom Waits has a cool song, "Jesus Gonna Be Here" that he sings in the voice of a drunk with a bit of a lisp. It always makes me smile.

From Wikipedia on In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida:
Quote:
A commonly related story says that the song's title was originally "In The Garden Of Eden" but at one point in the course of rehearsing and recording, singer Doug Ingle got intoxicated and slurred the words, creating the mondegreen that stuck as the title. However, the liner notes on 'the best of' CD compilation state that drummer Ron Bushy was listening to the track through headphones, and couldn't clearly distinguish what Doug Ingle answered when Ron asked him for the title of the song (which was originally "In-The-Garden-Of-Eden"). An alternate explanation, as given in the liner notes of the 1995 re-release of the In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida album, is that Ingle was drunk and or high when he first told Bushy the title, and Bushy wrote it down. Bushy then showed Ingle what he had written, and the slurred title stuck. It has been covered many times, such as the version by Boney M.

I like that one. Wonder if this is the song that made Isaac Brock decide his singing voice was good enough...

Billy Stewart's incredible "Summertime." Oh, and a pair of 70s hits: always sounded to me like Marie Osmond was singing "Pape-uh Woses" and Hamilton, Joe Frank and Reynolds were singing "Baby, Baby Fawin' In Love."

Billy Paul - Me and Misses Jones

Great old-time soul ballad - made all the more endearing when he sang "Me - e - a - and Mithis, Mithis Jones..."
