Des-Ree - Life
"I don't want to see a ghost. It's the site that I fear most. I'd rather have a peice of toast, and watch the evening news"
Wow. Maybe the best example of someone who went to the library to get a rhyming book. An obvious opening to this list.
Elton John - Your Song
"If I was a sculpture... heh... but then again no"
I could think of some amazing lyrics for this line... heh... but then again no.
Alizée - I'm Fed Up (English translation of J'en Ai Marre)
"It's not a problem, I lazy round. Bubbly and stubborn, I lazy round"
Even though I'm in love with her, I cannot let her slip by this list. She had to have fired her translator after this.
Owl City - Fireflies
"Cus I'd get a thousand hugs, from ten thousand lightening bugs... as they try to teach me how to dance"
I'll admit, this song is a guilty pleasure... but is there anything this guy says that isn't gay?
Owl City - Hello Seattle
"Hello Seattle, I am an albatross"
... apparently not.
Razorlight - Somewhere Else
"I met a girl, she asked me my name and I told her what it was"
Nice story, thanks for that, Johnny.
Kate Nash - Mouthwash
"This is my face, covered in freckles with the occasional spot and some veins."
Again, thank you. You should team up with Razorlight and make a song about about making bread pudding.
Kanye West - Through The Wire
"When the doctor told me I was goin to have to have a plate in my chin, I said dawg don't you realize I'll never make it to my plane now, Its bad enough I got all this jewelry on. You can't be serious man."
This guy loves himself too much. Look at him, showing his ability to not care about an operation, and still able to talk about his 'bling'.
Sade - Smooth Operator
"Cost to coast, LA to Chicago"
Someone get this kid a map.
Scooter - Nessaja
"It's not a bird, It's not a plane. It must be Dave who's on the train."
This cracks me up every time I hear it. Who the hell is Dave? Those crazy Germans.
Kanye West - Jesus Walks
"Harass and arrest us, saying "we eat pieces of shit like you for breakfast". Huh? Y'all eat pieces of shit? What's the basis?"
Its not a comeback if you actually say the line yourself, and in made up conversation, you silly douche.
Morrissey - King Leer
"Your boyfriend, he went down on one knee. Well could it be he's only got one knee?"
Yes... that is probably it. Well done Steve.
The Kooks - Eddies Gun (acoustic - talking after the song)
"So erm. Very rarely when we do gigs we get to talk about the songs really, because, it's kind of just like... mayhem. So... this is 'Ooh La'... this is erm... this is about... this is-I dunno- I dunno what it is about really... just listen to the lyrics or something... it's erm... [unintelligible] .. err... heh heh heh... it's just erm... you know it's a song about ... you know ... getting... abused."
I think you have just demonstrated why you shouldn't bother trying to talk about the songs.
If you have any others please let me know in the comments.
