    Thin Lizzy - Jailbreak

    'Tonight there's going to be a jailbreak,
    Somewhere in this town.'

    I would have thought it would be at the Jail!

    "A few questions that I need to know" - Never Ever, All Saints.

    Surely she knows the questions and wants some answers.

    I used to love her,
    But I had to kill her,
    I knew I'd miss her,
    So I had to keep her,
    She's buried right in my backyard.

    The whole of Ironic, Alanis Morrisette.

    And I'm gonna get killed for this one, but far too many Led Zep songs have ridiculous lyrics. It wasn't one of Robert Plants strong points, IMO.

    The Beatles "I Saw Her Standing There"
    "and I held her hand in Hawaiiiii"

    Bill Withers "Give Me the Beat Boys"
    "gimme the Beach Boys and free my soul, I want to get lost in your rocker roll..."

    speaking of which:
    Q: how do you turn a duck into a soul singer?
    A: you put it in a microwave until its bill withers :)

    First Place:
    GWAR "Rock & Roll Never Felt This Good" (a tender, romantic masterpiece!)
    http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/gwar/rocknrollneverfeltsogood.html

    Second Place:
    2nd place goes to the "Angry Jagged Little Pill of Pretense," the erstwhile Canadian "Tiffany" herself, Alanis Morrisette, who penned a song called "Unsent." I head this playing in a Virgin Records store and found myself laughing out loud. She sounded like she was trying to make up the lyrics as she went along. Here's a 'choice' verse:

    "Dear Matthew, I like you a lot - I realize you're in a relationship - with someone right now and I repect - that I would like you to know that if you're ever single - in the future and you want to come visit me in California - I would be open to spending time with you and finding out how old you were when you wrote your first song."

    Um....what the hell was she thinking?


    Honorable mention-3rd place:
    Soupy Sales "Pachalafaka"
    "Pachalafaka, Pachalafaka
    They whisper it all over Turkey
    Pachalafaka, Pachalafaka
    It sounds so romantic and perky
    Oh I know that phrase will make me thrill always
    For it reminds me of you my sweet
    Just the mention of that tender word of love
    Gives my heart a jerkish Turkish beat.

    I won't say "ci bon" or "l'amour tou jour"
    For the they can't express what I'm feeling
    Even "mercey d'ota" or other foreign quote
    Don't seem to be quite so appealing
    But Pachalafaka, Pachalafaka
    Takes me back with you to passionate desert scenes
    And it's there we'll stay, 'till the very day
    We find out what Pachalafaka means!"

    I can't remember the name of the band, but it was the one Gavin Rossdale was in after Bush. Anyway, the lyric is as follows:

    "I'm deep fried in the fat of your love"

    Bonehead's Bank Holiday - Oasis

    You know I need a little break to get away for a holiday
    So I can see the sun
    'Cos in The Sun they say it’s fun
    If you get some

    Well I could take a train or a boat or an aeroplane
    Or I could steal a car
    'Cos in a car you can go far
    It just depends what kinda car you are
    What kinda car you are

    I met a funny-looking girl on a crowded beach in Spain
    Her name was Avaline
    She said she came to Spain
    To have a good time

    But she was with her mum who had a face like a nun in pain
    She said her name was Dot
    She didn't half talk a lot
    I couldn't tell if she was mad or not

    How about the "the bird is the word" or was it "the word is the bird"?

    The whole song was a repeat of the same lyric. (1960's)

    Party like a Rockstar is completely useless
    Laffy Taffy by D4L is equally silly
    Hip-hop artists start running out of stuff to rap about so they just turn out garbage left and right regardless of if it makes any sense.

    Ive been through the desert on a horse with no name
    It felt good to be out of the rain
    In the desert you can remember your name
    cause there aint no one for to give you no pain

    ~ "America" the Unbeautiful ~ a farce with no name....

    America (the band); excellent call Morpheus! Their *cough* lyricist *cough* Dewey Bunnell apparently believed in crafting clever pop melodies, then filling the "empty notes" with whatever lyrics had the right syllable count, whether they actually made sense or not. Some examples:

    "Tin Man"

    But Oz never did give nothing to the Tin Man
    That he didn't, didn't already have
    And Cause never was the reason for the evening
    Or the tropic of Sir Galahad


    So please believe in me
    When I say I'm spinning round, round, round, round
    Smoke glass stain bright color
    Image going down, down, down, down
    Soapsuds green like bubbles


    Actually the first line is a good one ("But Oz didn't give nothing to the Tin Man that he didn't, didn't already have."). It makes perfect sense and sums up the moral of the movie version of The Wizzard of Oz (the goodness of the Tin Man showed that he already had a "heart"). But Bunnell seems to have been so exhausted from coming up with that gem that he then starts spouting complete gibberish: "The tropic of Sir Galahad?" "Soapsuds green LIKE bubbles?" (Soapsuds ARE bubbles, Dewey!).

    And this snippet from "Sandman:"

    'Cause I understand you've been running from the man
    That goes by the name of the Sandman
    He flies the sky like an eagle in the eye
    Of a hurricane that's abandoned


    Seen any abandoned hurricanes lately? If so, please return to Mr. Dewey Bunnell, address unknown, 'cause clearly the man's a few millibars short of a low-pressure zone. :neutral:



    "Ventura Highway" ...... nice song ..... smooth chorus ........ WTF?!! LYRICS" :)

    Last thing I remember, I was
    Running for the door
    I had to find the passage back
    To the place I was before
    ’relax,’ said the night man,
    We are programmed to receive.
    You can checkout any time you like,

    I always wanted them to GO.
