…and I saw this tweet the other day, “Teens don’t know how good they have it with lyrics sites. We used to have to sing songs wrong for years until the truth destroyed us.” Well, I don’t know about destroying anyone but it sure makes for a comical moment especially for guys like us in radio who would get a call from a listener asking us to play that song “Bathroom on the Right” or “Bad Moon Rising “by CCR. One caller asked if we could play “Learn to Speak French” that one took awhile until the caller said it was by a band called Red Rider. “Oh, you mean” Lunatic Fringe”. Or “could you play Padded bra from Van Halen? You mean Panama? Who hasn’t sung along to the Eagles Hotel California “on the dock, there’s a highway instead of on a dark desert highway” or “on a dark desert highway, Cool Whip and a Bear. Then there’s the Police song Message in a Bottle where Sting sings “a year has passed since I broke my nose” How about “Shake a cow, shake a cow, shake a cow down” while singing Brick House from the Commodores. Then there’s “I’ve got two chickens to paralyze instead of “two tickets to paradise:” from Eddie Money. Wednesday Adams would probably argue that one. There’s the classic Johnny Nash Song I can see clearly now that Lorraine is gone. Speaking of which “I wanna know, have you ever seen Lorraine” from CCR. Not only can you find the right lyrics on line but you can find a ton of examples of songs sung wrong there too. I wonder if anyone ever questioned the lyrics on Karaoke night, what do you mean it’s Tiny Dancer? It’s “hold me closer Tony Danza” now excuse me while I kiss this guy.
