Northwest Native: Where would I be without lyrics sites?

Where would I be without lyrics sites?

Some day I will post a Weekly Lessons post on time...

This past week has been full of ups and downs. And my mind has just been totally occupied and I had an idea in my head but wasn't able to come up with more than one point for it... So I'm going in another direction, but still only have two for you.

Do you ever mis-hear song lyrics horribly? I do, so I'm glad I can Google the lyrics to figure out if the song is really as weird as I think it is.

This first misheard lyric is courtesy of Michael. I wanted to include this in a Stuff Michael Says post, but I fail at compiling material for those. We were in downtown Portland a few months ago (like, spring time) and he starts belting out Hands to Myself by Selena Gomez. "I'm in the club but why would I want to!" I immediately started laughing and said, "You know it's, 'I mean I could, but why would I want to'?"

And this one is all me. You know Closer by The Chainsmokers featuring Halsey? (Side note: I bet lots of people are over this song by now but I still love it.) There's a part that I swear said, "Play that Blink 182 song, while we bleed to death in Tucson" and I was like...wow, that's dark. I knew those weren't the actual lyrics, but every time I strained to hear something different and I couldn't. Handy dandy Google told me that it's, "that we beat to death in Tucson" which makes sooo much more sense. But usually after I know what a song actually says, I can hear those words. Nope, still hear "bleed to death." Still loving the song. It's fine.

And if you're into misheard lyrics, this video is a major throwback that used to crack me up every time I watched it.

  3. This happens to me all the time, and I always wind up looking up the lyrics because I'm like "no... that can't be right..." lol. Though usually when I get it wrong, it stays in my head that way even after finding out the real lyrics!

  6. I always mishear lyrics! I think that the one that had us laughing the most lately was when a friend that Zane was lisping "better day" but he was actually saying "bed all day" in Pillow Talk. We still laugh about it!

  7. I belt out classic rock songs and power ballads with ALLLL the wrong words when I'm at home and K just rolls his eyes at me and laughs. I also mistook a Queen song for s Styx song once and got a crazy lecture on the difference in bands. *eyeroll* Hahaha!

  10. oh my gosh yes. I'm in the club but why would I want to hahahahahaha
    but that closer song annoys me so much! it's catchy but i have a real problem when you can tell a song is written purely to rhyme and it's not really real.. so basically every song ever. but like, how it's talking about a mattress that you stole (ew) from a roommate back in boulder something something older, like REALLY DID YOU HAVE A ROOMMATE IN BOULDER OR DID IT JUST RHYME OKAY IT MAKES ME MAD.

  11. It used to aggravate me when I would buy a CD and the cover booklet would only have pictures of the artist inside, not lyrics.

  12. Hahaha this is hilarious. And my life. I like to embrace when I sing the lyrics incorrectly though, and just tell myself I'm starting a new trend/song ;)

  13. Another blogger and I got to talking songs one time, and I said something about The Kill by Thirty Seconds to Mars being a song that I have a vivid memory of singing at the top of my lungs while crying and driving during a break-up. (Safe, I know.) I made mention of the lyrics and there is a part that says: "Bury me, bury me, I am finished with you." She said "ohhhhhh I always thought that song was confusing because I thought it said "marry me, marry me".

  16. You know the song Rain King by Counting Crows? I thought the line "I belong in the service of the queen" was actually "I belong in a purple submarine" HAHA. Also if I blogged more than twice a week I would totally be linking up!!! I love the link-up idea for weekly lessons!!!
