A while ago, I constructed a list of kids’ songs that weren’t totally obnoxious. I was thinking about that list, and realized this one is ruined. Lyrics are here. Thanks, Coronavirus! We certainly *don’t* want to teach kids to shake hands right now. That song is so beautiful, so simple, and so sadly not a […]
When they dropped audiobooks from premium a couple of years ago, I was ultimately ok with it. I wasn’t happy to see them go, but I didn’t listen to them nearly as much as I thought I might. It was nice to know they were there when I wanted them, but I mostly used the […]
lyrics are here. I figured now would be a good time to say how we’re doing. I know that soundtrack is a little dark, and it’s darker than it needs to be, but it’s been going through my head, in the sense that when something sudden and life-changing happens, your priorities completely shift. It feels […]
I think I’ve said it before. My dad has some wacky expressions. I don’t know how many times, as a kid, I heard him say something, thought he was weird for it, and then discovered it came from a book or a song or whatever. Now I catch myself getting the same reaction from people. […]
I think I made Steve very confused the other night. He came back out to the balcony where I was, and I said “In that last song, I’m pretty sure the guy’s a prick!” Poor Steve hadn’t heard the song I was talking about, so he was very befuddled. But I found the song and […]
Somebody commented on Gill’s misheard lyrics and that got me thinking of another one. I was a strange, twisted kid sometimes. Not only did I misunderstand lyrics of songs, the ones I came up with were…just…gross or something. Take this one. “The last of the red hot fools”. The name should have been enough to […]
There’s something ironic in the shittiest possible way about a band deciding to change its name in order to not feel quite so racist, but then finding that the new one that the members have lazily chosen already belongs to a black artist and then using their major label resources to drag her through the […]
“Here I go again on my phone/going off on people I don’t even know/on Facebook all I do is wine and moan” might honestly be the most accurate summation of modern life I’ve ever heard.
Next time my nephew is over here, I need to start the process of training him to ask “the Hey Google” for this Baby Shark instead of the regular one. So much better. There was a bit in the middle where I almost forgot what I was listening to.
I thought I had posted this already, but since the search engine is telling me otherwise, have a listen to what Girls Just Want To Have Fun sounded like when it was first written. Quite a bit different, isn’t it? The first thing you likely noticed is that the fella singing there is definitely not […]
