With Just A Hint Of Mayhem

Music trivia, useless info, extra added random stuff and the odd rant from me

“What about elephants? Have we lost their trust?” August 5, 2014


Irrational-Killers-fan-meme-the-killers-25047452-400-346Weird lyrics are great aren’t they? Often they might be confused with crap lyrics I suppose. Such as Thin Lizzy’s “Jailbreak” contains the line ‘tonight there’s gonna be a jailbreak somewhere in this town’. Somewhere? Obviously it will be at the jail won’t it? That for me is a crap lyric. A weird lyric for me comes from Haircut 100’s “Love Plus One” as in ‘where do we go from here, is it down to the lake I fear’. Then of course this little gem from Pharrell William’s wonderful song “Happy”; ‘Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof’. Anyway, maybe there is a very thin line between weird and crap, what do you think? Online music company Blinkbox Music recently undertook a survey to find out the weirdest lyrics. They asked 2,000 people for their opinion and the resulting top 10 weird lyrics were;

  1. The Killers – “Human”- ‘Are we human, or are we dancer?’
  2. The Beatles – “I Am The Walrus”- ‘I am the eggman, they are the eggmen, I am the walrus, goo goo g’joob.’
  3. Michael Jackson – “Earth Song”- ‘What about elephants? Have we lost their trust?’
  4. Lionel Richie – “All Night Long”- ‘Tom bo li de se de moi ya, yeah jambo jambo.’
  5. Carly Rae Jepsen – “Call Me Maybe”- ‘Before you came into my life, I missed you so bad.’
  6. Black Eyed Peas – “Boom Boom Pow”- ‘Beats so big I’m stepping on leprechauns.’
  7. Duran Duran – “The Reflex”- ‘The reflex is an only child, he’s waiting in the park.’
  8. Wham! – “Club Tropicana”- ‘Club Tropicana, drinks are free, fun and sunshine, there’s enough for everyone, all that’s missing is the sea.’
  9. Taylor Swift – “Love Story” -’Cause you were Romeo, I was a scarlet letter, and my daddy said stay away from Juliet.’
  10. Oasis – “Champagne Supernova”- ‘Slowly walking down the hall, faster than a cannonball.
