Putting a nice shine on #!$&

Calling this a morning-after musing is very kind on my part. It’s an “I woke up way too early but as usual, once the brain kicks in that’s it, I’m up” rant.

And sometimes the brain kicks in on some really tedious crap. Such as? Getting a stupid song stuck in your head, a song you haven’t heard by choice and sheer good luck for a very long time. The song in question: Kansas’ “Dust In The Wind”. But the brain can’t stop there. It has to analyze the utter lameness of this song, getting stuck on the Yoda-esque “and all your money won’t another minute buy” lyric.

So now, I have to, HAVE TO rack my brain for equally lame song lyrics. Here are a few that come to mind. Some aren’t really that that awful, they just bug ┬áme.

1. Tell grandma you fell off the swing (Pat Benatar, Hell is for Children)

2. The rivers are full of crocodile nasties (Bungle in the Jungle, Jethro Tull)

3. Hit It (Lonely People, America. Of significance is the fact that they say “hit it” right before a harmonica solo. You heard me. Not a drum or guitar or sax solo. A harmonica solo)

4. He’s a one-trick pony. He either fails or he succeeds (One Trick Pony, Paul Simon. This detail is a given of all living creatures).

5. Knee deep in the hoopla. (We Built This City, Jefferson Starship. Stupid song, stupider lyric).

Hey, this blog thing really works, I’m getting sleepy! There were more bad lyrics, but I’m gonna see if I can fall back asleep. I guarantee this bad lyrics list will grow.
