Picture this by Blondie is particularly grating.
Maybe in a different vein than what you're asking, but "Please Release Me" drives me nuts. It has a beautiful melody. I want to sing it. I want to take up trombone again just to play it. It's a long-time earworm for me.
But those words. Some lying, cheating, slimy sack of doo-doo has "fallen in love" while his wife--who will be happy to release him when she finds out--is played for a fool. The song runs through my mind all the time, has for years, but each time it does I feel kind of dirty.
Other songs about adultery are available.
I know, but their melodies don't drill themselves into my soul thataway.
On another thread, someone pointed out 'Tonight there's gonna be a Jailbreak - somewhere in this town.' In the jail, duh. I kid, of course - big fan.
When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
"Highway To Hell?" No thanks...
Sounds more like a lawsuit to me.
Wife absolutely hates Muskrat Love...so naturally I slip in in the oil’ 70s playlist once in a while, hehehe.
Is there in fact someone who did in fact leave a cake out in the rain? I know that’s an English saying but really??? It was mentioned many posts ago. What a waste of cake!
"Love is like a stove, it burns you when it's hot"
I always thought Gram Parsons (or whoever the hell actually wrote this song) could have spent maybe a minute or two longer thinking about that line before committing it to tape.
"You told your mama I'd get you home, but you didn't say I had no car - I saw a lion he was standing alone, with a tadpole in a jar"
Well, of course that follows... Happens all the time. Actually, that entire song is just word salad.
"I'll be the roundabout - The words will make you out and out."
"Call it morning driving through the sound and in and out the valley"
"Ten true summers we'll be there and laughing too - Twenty four before my love and you'll see I'll be there with you"
I love Yes, but even Jon Anderson admits that his lyrics are meaningless, and that he just throws in random words that sound good together. I guess the only lyrics that have any real inspiration or meaning are on "Tales from Topographic Oceans", but that album is unlistenable.
I gotta say though...without these grating lyrics would the songs really be the same? In a Gadda da vida.....in a garden of eden. Nuff said, right?
the best thing about that line is that clearly someone did try to explain magnets to them, and they got mad about it.
"Two Princes" by Spin Doctors
I'll spare you all posting those horrible painful lyrics.
Find them on the Googles if you dare
I just put it down to the scouse accent!
Witty, yes. Rhyming, not even close.
...and from that same risible song, what the sodding buggery bollocks does 'tippy-tippy-tay' mean? Stuck for a word to rhyme with 'play' was he?
And that's why I prefer instrumental music!
I have an emense distain for teen rock anthems 2 in particular , the lyrics in their entirty grate like fingers on a chalk board
boys in the bright white sports car and Bar room blitz , make me want blow chunks when i hear them, horrible tunes , with nothing redeeming at all
Lyrics are poetry, you all know that, right? You sometimes have to peel the onion.
"I got a sixty-nine Chevy with a 396
Fuelie heads and a Hurst on the floor"
I remember the first time I heard that song, I was checking valve clearance on my Kawasaki, I dropped my tools and exclaimed "WTF?? "
A 396 is big block Chevrolet engine with a Bore center of 4.840", a "fuelie" head is from a small block fuel injected application, it doesn't fit!
