I only just realized that Geddy Lee was singing "...the words of the profits were written on the studio walls..."


(After thinking, "You know, it would be cool if he actually was saying 'profits' instead of 'prophets', I looked it up and realized that he was. Good job.)
La la la la la.

I thought I misunderstood these, but I just looked it up. "The best soy latte that you ever had..." is right. What a dumb lyric.

I've just discovered the intermittent brilliance of Elbow due to their inclusion in various "Top <whatever> of the noughties" lists. And in probably their best song, On a Day Like This, the line "Holy cow, I love your eyes" keeps making me laugh. It's completely unpoetic yet beautiful at the same time.
Lionel Hutz, aka Miguel Sanchez, aka Dr. Nguyen van Thoc, was paid $8 for his 32 hours of babysitting.

He was glad to get it.

Heard it in a love song by Marshall Tucker band.
I always thought they were sayin' "purty little love song". Purty is how Texans say pretty. :D

What was the actual line? Song?

Listening to the chorus of "Daydream Believer", I used to always hear, "... to a daydream believer I'M the homecoming queen" and I'd think :wtf:
of course later my faith in the Monkees sexuality was restored when I learned it was "and the homecoming queen".

Just saw that advertisement where the poor kid whose parent's don't have a Toyota with in-car entertainment system has to endure them singing Angel of the Morning. For the longest time, I thought Juice Newton was singing "just brush my teeth before you leave."

I was also recently reminded of an old stoner friend who would signal that he wanted to get high by singing a falsetto version of Whitney Houston's "Didn't We Almost Pack a Bowl?"

Recently saw the Family Guy episode where Frank Sinatra sings the theme song (Yeah, I know it's an old episode). I always thought Stewie sang "'f'in' cry" but apparently it's "laugh and cry". I like my version better, it fits Stewie's character.
