Cheesy lyrics

Postby Dave » Thu 2 Dec 2004 04:28 GMT

Some lyrics are so bad they make your teeth curl.

Take "The Mighty Quinn", for example:

I like to go just like the rest
I like my sugar sweet
But jumpin' queues and makin' haste
Just ain't my cup of meat

Or "It's Magic" by Pilot. Great tune, but what a chorus:

Oh-ho-ho, it's magic, you know
Never believe it's not so
It's magic, you know
Never believe it's not so

And then the verses...

Never been awake
Never seen a day break
Leaning on my pillow in the morning light

So bad, they're good... :twisted:

Anyone else got any gems?

"If I Was . . " by Midge Ure.

Am I the only one who cringed at the grammar?

I can accept the grammatically incorrect dung of rap artists, because not knowing how to put a sentence together is an essential part of that culture.

But Midge is the same age as me, and brocht up wi' a gweed Scottish education.
