Well our Falcon was called Gertrude, unless it was when the engine blew up, then dad called it something else..

Better get called Gert than get called "Missy".

"Can't live, living it without you, can't live, I can't live anymore."
Actually I don't mind that one. Not like I'm going to ever hear it...

A woman named Charlene once sang:

"I've been to paradise but I've never been to me"


What the....?

And ladies, please don't try to explain it to me, I'm just not interested.

Yeah thanks, MG. I can just picture a new cafe or apartment block opening up on the Gold Coast with the name 'Girt By the Sea'.




Just off the subject for a moment. How's this for the name of a restaurant? :

Ghettit India (say it out loud).

Goodness, I've just resurrected another dead one, haven't I? That's what I get for looking at "Who's online".

I will preface this by saying that I absolutely adore Paul Westerberg. He writes some amazing, soul grabbing lyrics. However, he also writes some amazingly bad ones. One shining example would be:

"Checkin' on her face. Checks his sleeve for his ace. And both just in case, wore clean underwear." From "Love Untold."

Now, I was with him until the bit about the clean underthings, then, he lost me. It's a shame too because the song is absolutely wonderful if you can get past this line.

'I don't wanna see a ghost, It's the sight that I fear most, I'd rather have a piece of toast'. This is from 'Life' by Des'ree.

Truly awful.

"Didn't expect a spectre!" from Little Ghost by The White Stripes.

Awful, but charming at the same time.

"So what now, It's plain to see we're over and I hate when things are over when so much is left undone" - Deep Blue Something's "Breakfast at Tiffany's" ...I still kind of like that song though, it's really catchy.

The worst in my opinion: Bee Gees, "The First of May":

"When I was small, and christmas trees were tall,
We used to love while others used to play.
Dont ask me why, but time has passed us by,
Some one else moved in from far away.


Now we are tall, and christmas trees are small,
And you dont ask the time of day.
But you and i, our love will never die,
But guess well cry come first of may.

The apple tree that grew for you and me,
I watched the apples falling one by one.
And I recall the moment of them all,
The day I kissed your cheek and you were mine."

And I guess nearly every Sweet song.

What about "Rock Lobster!" Don't know it word for word, but it's something like "Everybody had matching towels...saw some thing but it wasn't a rock..it was a rock lobster!"

Like I said in the other thread, I cannot abide by the lyrics of Billie Holliday's "Don't Explain", but it's a classic regardless.

Load up on guns and bring your friends
It's fun to lose and to pretend
She's over bored and self assured
Oh no, I know a dirty word

Hello, hello, hello, how low? (x3)
Hello, hello, hello!

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto
An albino
A mosquito
My libido
Yay! (x3)

I'm worse at what I do best
And for this gift I feel blessed
Our little group has always been
And always will until the end

Hello, hello, hello, how low? (x3)
Hello, hello, hello!

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto
An albino
A mosquito
My libido
Yay! (x3)

And I forget just why I taste
Oh yeah, I guess it makes me smile
I found it hard, it's hard to find
Oh well, whatever, nevermind

Hello, hello, hello, how low? (x3)
Hello, hello, hello!

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us
A mulatto
An albino
A mosquito
My libido

A denial! (x9)
