Thirteen Songs That Confuse Me

  1. Blue- By Eiffel 65: Does anyone actually know the lyrics to the chorus? I think they are pretty much open to interpretation.
  2. She's Always a Woman- By Billy Joel- So, this woman stepped on his heart and he's blaming it on himself? Or did I miss something?
  3. I'll Be- By Edwin McCain- What exactly is "love suicide"?
  4. Jesus, Take The Wheel- By Carrie Underwood- "She didn't even have time to cry" and then she spews out 5 eloquently rhymed and metered lines.
  5. I Am A Friend Of God- By Israel and The New Breed- Well, duh. If you are a friend of God, he's gonna tend to call you friend.
  6. Killer Queen- By Queen- Don't get me wrong. I love this song. It's my ringtone. But why are the writing a song about a woman with dynamite and laser beams? You would think this would make her angry.
  7. I Am The Walrus- By The Beatles- It's too wierd to even describe. Click Here.
  8. Invisible- By Clay Aiken- Anyone who has heard this song just knows it's creepish. No explanation needed.
  9. I Hate You, Then I Love You- By Celine Dion- Two very strong words. Used together. This is what we call a non-commital relationship.
  10. Yellow Submarine- By The Beatles- Much like number 6, anyone who has heard the song doesn't understand it. Most likely.
  11. Someday My Prince Will Come- By Snow White- Psh. Liar.
  12. Baby It's Cold Outside- By Frank Loesser- No duh. It's winter.
  13. You're So Vain- By Carly Simon- "You're so vain, you probably think this song is about you, don't you, don't you?" Ummmmmmmm....isn't it?

I was laughing anyway, but when I got to #13, I fell out of my chair. Good post!

Amy Ruttan said...

Too funny. I like Yellow Submarine but ya don't get the words. And Invisible totally creepy!

Great list, Happy TT!!! Thanks for dropping by mine.

Wylie Kinson said...

Re #7 -- DRUGS. Obviously very good ones. The entire White Album was one big stone-fest...

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

Rashenbo said...

Great list.. I remember my mom rented the video of yellow submarine after a minute I said, "um... what the heck is this?"

She just laughed and said it's what drugs do to you! :)

I never got rita meter maid... though, I did love Lucy in the Sky! :)

Alasandra said...

Thanks for visiting my TT.

Nice list of songs.

Gattina said...

Confuses you ? why most of them are very nice !

she said...

This was a hilarious list even for someone stuck in the 80's like me. I hadn't heard a lot of the songs, but your comments on the titles or lyrics were great.

Robin said...

What Shelly (This Eclectic Life) said.

Too funny. And, I'm humming it now.

Daisy said...

Hahahahaha! I love your list!

Jerry said...

Actually, I do know the lyrics to the chorus for Blue...

But I'm not tellin!

And just about anything by Celene Dion should be on a list of things to never listen to...

jenny said...

i'm sure there's a bunch more, 13 isn't enough for this,hehehe! but i actually love that song BLUE...my kids get into the groove when they hear that play,hehehe!

Qtpies7 said...

Oh my gosh, I have NEVER heard I am the walrus, but its hysterical! Thanks! I'll have to keep listening to that one! Kookookachoo!

"Chapped lips, chapped sticks and things like chemistry" from Relient K. They have some weird and funny lines in their songs.

KC said...

LOL this was funny. Thanks for Sharing.
Great list
I played for the 1st time this week.

Liz said...

THANK YOU for not joining the "I less than three Carrie Underwood" bandwagon because that would have a damper on our relationship.

And as a mutual friend of ours sings #5 "I am a friend of Bob, he calls me Fred"

JAM said...

Someday My Prince Will Come- By Snow White- Psh. Liar. Thanks, I needed a good laugh. Methinks you are on your way to being a cynic.

This is a great post, I've never really thought about how absolutely silly many lyrics are, I'm more into the music, and could do without singing and lyrics altogether. But all of your points are right on. I loved Queen, they were juggernauts when I was in high school in the late 70s. One Friday night I stayed up late to see them on The Midnight Special, an old, live music concert show, WAY before MTV and videos. My Dad happened to stay up, and he picked on me for years for having liked them. I loved them, but to him they were silly. I particularly remember him picking on my about the song "Bicycle."
When I was a teen, we were more into portions of lyrics that said one thing, but sounded as if they were saying another. Ex. Jimi Hendrix, Purple Haze, says, "'Scuse me, while I kiss the sky" we used to sing it as, "'Scuse me while I kiss this guy" instead. I'll shut up now.

Happy Mama to Three said...

I am the walrus too, but only after a huge meal, a few cocktails, and a long night. But maybe that's just bloating? Hmmm.

Thanks for visiting my TT

This is just too too funny! Happy TT!

Lara said...

coo-coo-ca-choo... ;)

And word on Invisible.... Um, I don't think I want Clay Aiken hiding in my room watching me. Y'all know he's gonna be judgy.

Annie said...

#13 was the best! Laughed out loud at that one!

Awesome TT. All songs that confuse me, too!

L^2 said...

LMAO! I've thought the same things about most of those songs too. :-)

Denise Patrick said...

Very funny list. #13 is the best. I remember reading once who the song was actually written about, but I've long since forgotten.

Thanks for visiting my TT.

TeaMouse said...

Interesting list - thanks for popping by!

Kate Davies said...

Great list!

And I've heard that #13's about Warren Beatty. He and Carly Simon dated at one point. But according to her official website, she's never revealed who the inspiration is -- Warren, Mick Jagger, Kris Kristofferson, Cat Stevens -- man, that woman dated some big names in music! :)

impworks said...

In a similar direction - "Ironic" by Alanis Morissette - the only ironic thing about it is that none of the situations are ironic.

Angelika said...

The only one of those songs I've heard is #13. But that's because she wrote it about me.

Shannon said...

Great list! I think with the beatles you just "had to be there..." Ok, I do love them but I don't pretend to even try to understand what most of them are about... :P Have a wonderful week!

Tendrils said...

Great post! What a cool idea for a TT!

Have a great weekend!

Aline de Chevigny said...

LOL Love the list and I agree with most of them.

Michelle Hasker said...

OOO I love the song Blue!
Not a fan of invisible either.
I understand The Yellow Submarine...prolly because I'm old enough to have seen the Movie. LOL

great list, especially your comments!

Amy said...

Well, you know the Beatles were on drugs..

Sanni said...

I´m laughing so hard I can´t breathe! - especially #12 and #13!
Thanks for the good laugh and for stopping by Luis 1st birthday celebration earler today!

Ashley said...

Blue is definitely a weird song...

Christine said...

It's so funny how we don't always think about the lyrics of some of our favourite songs? These are awesome. :)

I can't get no...satisfaction...

Elena Croft said...

Great Post

said...

AH! I loved it all! and you're so right in the explanations! thanks for stopping by and sharing your site! happy TT!!

Jess said...

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who really didn't get #4. I must say, though, that I adore #2...more the piano than the lyrics, but it IS Billy Joel, after all. And during my not-so-nice later teenage years it was sort of my anthem. Thankfully, I've outgrown that. :) Great list!

Thank you for dropping by my TT!

Carol said...

That's a very interesting list. Which does contain some really cool songs. That also happen to have some very strange lyrics.

Thanks for visiting my T-13 yesterday!

Danica/Dream said...

Okay, those are just too funny!

TopChamp said...

That's definitely one of the best tt lists i've ever read - it was a great idea.

Congrats - Happy tt!
