    Irritating song lyrics

    Sitting here during the "great blizzard of 2019", letting my mind wander to song lyrics that annoy me. Now, I'm not going to go into 'classic' lyrics that don't make sense (Although, the lyrics of America's "Tin Man" still don't make any sense, even after 45 years...), but recent songs that just bother me.

    First is by a band/singer named Lump; in a song, she says "rolling the DICES..." "Dice" is the plural of "die", therefore "dices" is NOT a word!!!

    The second is a song by Sophie Hunger, called "I opened the bar":
    "I opened a bar for my friends
    Who have no work..."
    Really? What kind of business plan is that? Did you tell that to the loan officer at the bank? Wouldn't catering to EMPLOYED people make a lot more sense??

    When I read the thread title, automatically went to Armaan Bedil, and his piece. No correlation.

    They just released her last song. And, I don't know why you posted this here, but I severly disapprove.

    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    I love quote-unquote bad pop lyrics. Lines like "Yummy yummy yummy got love in my tummy" are charming and mellifluous. Then again, almost all the lyrics in Eagles songs turn my stomach. Vapid. Self-important. Thuddingly on topic. One of the few exceptions -- the lyrics in "New Kid in Town" by JD Souther.

    Mapie is a conventional looking former Hollywood bon viveur, now leading a quiet life in a house made of wood by an isolated beach. He has cultivated a taste for culture, and is a celebrated raconteur amongst his local associates, who are artists, actors, and other leftfield/eccentric types. I imagine he has a telescope, and an unusual sculpture outside his front door. He is also a beach comber. The Rydster.

    Queen "Radio Ga ga, Radio Goo goo"...drives me nuts, however the melody is cool. "Ol 55....went lickity splitly", otherwise cool tune by Tom Waits.
    So I tuned the Larrivee, drop D, then DADGAD.

    If that's the song I think you are referring to, it ALSO annoys me, at the part where it says "Even your old friends treat you like you're something new" Seriously, if you actually were the NEW kid in town, you wouldn't have any "old friends".....

    You just got to dig a little bit deeper. Just because you're being referred to as the "new kid in town" it doesn't mean you are literally from another town. You are proclaimed the new kid in town because you've suddenly gone from being anonymous to being the talk of the town. You are the proverbial fresh face.

    I dunno, Mapei; pop lyrics in general seem to have gone downhill since this high-water mark:



    Even The Thin White Duke couldn't pull it up from there, and he really tried:

    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    I have a live Hendrix CD where he very clearly sings, "scuse me while I kiss THAT guy". Jimi had a sense of humor.

    Whoever it was that wrote "The Boys Are Back In Town" should be shot.

    Thin Lizzy? Well, don't bother; he's been dead for decades......

    NSU -- one of my favorite bad lyric tunes. But what a great guitar solo.

    There was some dumb C&W song a couple years ago called something like "Live like you were dying", where some guy it seems has a terminal illness, so he decides to go skydiving and mountain climbing. Like, WTF? If you are really terminal, how are you gonna have the energy to do that? Climbing a mountain with an oxygen generator? Jumping out of a pane with a saline drip in your arm?

    Kinda judgemental, no? I mean, if I was unemployed, I'd really appreciate a friend with a bar who would let me drink for free.......

    Aw, man, there is some classic tour imagery in that lyric:

    "All them chiquitas in Omaha
    waiting for the band to return from the show..."
    ...
    "They said 'Come on dudes, let's get it on!'
    and we proceeded to tear that hotel down"

    If that doesn't create a vivid picture of rock'n'roll debauchery instantly ... smh

    No! Dammit to hell. I was hoping nobody would repeat that cringe-inducing lyric:

    "They said 'Come on dudes, let's get it on!'


    Now you've done it.

    What manner of additional curses are you going to bestow upon our brains, "Bob Ross"... if that really is your name?

    "we're comin' to your town, we're gonna party it down...."

    ?

    Well, I think I maybe see the problem: You thought all these years they were trying to steal your party thunder, when they were only offering to help party it down.

    So, altruists, all of them.

    Or maybe it was something in the water, Farner and the boys being from Flint?

    [Trivia: On July 9, 1971 GFRR sold out Shea Stadium in 72 hours, faster than the Beatles (or anyone else) had.

    That record at the home of baseball's Mets stood until the ballpark was demolished in 2008. Opening act Humble Pie claims to this day that they were the ones sold out Shea, not GFRR.

    Years later, Don Brewer would humbly note that, while it was an impressive accomplishment for GFRR, ticket sales processing had improved dramatically from when the Beatles did it.]
    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    In the Judas Priest song "Painkiller", Rob says "faster than a laser bullet". Is there even such a thing?
