Not an example of this, but Nas' new song Daughter goes

"This morning I got a call, nearly split my wig
This social network said “Nas go and get ya kid”
She on Twitter, I know she ain’t gon post no pic
Of herself underdressed, no inappropriate shit, right
Her mother cried when she answered
Said she don’t know what got inside this child’s mind, she planted
A box of condoms on her dresser then she Instagrammed it"

It's kind of awkward to listen to.

But let's play along with the misunderstanding.

"Jara sang, his song a weapon"

Gambled. Lost. Horrid.
I've read this post four times and still don't understand it. It might as well be in Welsh.

Oh here we go. Say anything's "do better".


Life is not a spark in space, an episode of will and grace
Controversial yet mundane, Debra's messing with your brain

Again, playing this as the misunderstood.

Neil Young: Rocking In The Free World.

There's more than a few Willie Nelson songs where he sings about riding on a horse.

Who the fuck rides on a horse?

Gambled. Lost.

Nah, the words are too sort to be welsh. But I don't think it's in English, either.

are you saying the entire song references something that's a blip on the radar of pop culture? yeah, those department stores, man. where did they go!

speaking of neil young though, it did make me think of a line from this note's for you:
ain't singin' for spuds

spuds mackenzie was a blip, i'd say. people still sing for pepsi and coke, though.

Nah. I'm ragging on people who think this is:

A revolution everyday
USSR, GDR, London, New York, Peking
It's the puppets, it's the puppets
Who pull the strings


Like wow! WTF is the USSR? Is that like New Coke? Or Sega?

I think that fits perfectly with the original intent of the thread.

Whereas someone who listed "Ohio" as an example would be kinda off base. As would someone who listed "Rocking In The Free World."

I laughed much harder than I should have at your avatar. So wrong, and so absolutely hilarious.

There are too many vowels for it to be Welsh.

It's a good thing this forum has no Welshmen. They may be offended.

For the record, what was my initial intent for the thread, does not have to be yours, I have enjoyed where this has gone immensely

What was even funnier was that I was reading this thread when it came up on my ipod.
