I don't think even Michael Stipe understands REM lyrics. Once upon a time, I was convinced that "Combien du temps" (can't even remember which song it's in now, something off Murmur) was "Gumby into town."

What was the Daily Show comment from 2003? Oh yes: "if you can't undertsand the lyrics and wish you could, that's Anti-War; if you can understand the lyrics and wish you couldn't, that's Pro-War."

It's "Talk about the Passion" (from Murmur).

I have vague memories of a story where they were performing It's the End ... and Stipe had a lyrics sheet that he had requested from someone at the record company. Good story — I know.

I went to see Dave Davies perform at a nightclub several years ago, and about a half hour after he finished his set and gave way to some other band, he returned to the stage to plead for whoever stole his lyrics notebook to return it.

"As long as I gaze on Waterloo Sunset, I am in... aw fuck, what's the next part?"

I'm too busy trying to figure out whether the old man is just listening to a transistor radio or if it's being used as some sort of prop.

I was listening to Gladys Knight's "License to Kill" from the Bond soundtrack and I swear she sings "License to kilt" every single time (except for the two slow drawn out times at the end of the song.

I heard a promo for the Police tour and remembered that as a child, I always thought that he was singing "I see spirits in-a my cereal bowl."

As a child, I obviously didn't speak English, so in the Transformers tune, "Robots in disguise" was "Robots in the sky". I guess they were looking for Lucy and the diamonds...

I used to think Glycerine, by Bush said, "Bad moon, wanna gun?" Instead of "Black moon, white again."

In addition, I thought it was 'Taking care of biscuits and working overtime.'

AND 'Can't find the buttermilk.' Instead of 'can't find a better man.' by Pearl Jam or whoever.

I was a lard, though. :?

I thought Girls Aloud's (terrible) new song said, "just cause you're ace in the bed you call the shots, nooooooooooo" (it actually says "just cause you're raising the bet and call the shots, noooooooow")

I turned on the radio to the sound of what I thougt was the dumbest idea for a song, only to figure out that the repeated line "Bungee Kills" is actulay "Politic Kills".
