champagne supernova in the sky is poetic enough to be a good lyric. well thats my excuse cause ive always liked it.


i dont usually critisize her but damn....

I am ready for the news so tell me straight
Hey doctor just what do you diagnose
There aint a surgeon like you any place in all the world
So now, shall I remove my clothes

So tell me what do you prescribe for these symptoms
A heart beating faster and work is a disaster
I'm lovesick when you're not around
Check me over
When strong hands and healing
I'm dancing on the ceiling

THANKYOU Bubba for bringing up Alanis Happypants. Lets count how many irony's actually exist in Ironic.

Lets not actually. I hate the song and hate everything she has ever recorded. I have more talent in my arse.

- Well, Cranberries is a bottomless well of crappy lyrics. How about this pearl:

"Don't analyze, don't analyze,
Don't live that way, don't live that way,
That would paralyse your evolution" (er.... what??)


"In your head, in your head,
They are fighting,
With their tanks and their bombs,
And their bombs, and their guns"

- Their countrymen, the Corrs, aren't doing better:

"Irresistible, magical, physical,
So make-you-mineable..."

- Although I love the song, I think that Coldplay's "Yellow" has terrible lyrics.

- And I can't ignore those masters of suburban angst, Limp Bizkit:

"I did it all for the nookie,
The nookie,
So you can take that cookie
And stick it up yo..."

Thank God this thread was resurrected. There is some new Nelly song with that chick from Destiny's Child called Decided or Dilemma or something. And the chorus goes something like:

Even when I'm with my boo
I'm still crazy about you"

even when you're with who? your boo? maybe you should ask nelly to give you his band aid for your boo boo...he has one on his face for no reason.

I'm a big rap fan, but here are some awful rap lyrics:

"North Carolina
Come on and raise up
Take your shirt off
Wave it round your head like a helicopter" by Petey something or other...

And yes, the lyrics of that Train song make me want to destroy my radio.

What about the song "I Like the Crotch on You" by the ever-classy R. Kelly?

*lovin' this thread!*

Oh, good, somebody brought up the Beatles first. Now, I don't feel so bad bringing up this little lyirc:

Na, na-na, na-na-na-na.
Hey Jude.

That wouldn't be NEARLY as irritating if they didn't sing it 40,000 times in one song, if they didn't make a mint off this song, or if Paul wasn't universally hailed as an infallible lyrical genius.
yes! ugh. most early beatles stuff had about a verse worth of actual lyrics. all those na-nas and yeah-yeahs make me

While I'm here, I'll bring up Aerosmith:

I'm the one that jaded you.

He jaded her? Is "jaded" even a transitive verb? Even if it is, it may be grammatically correct, but it's very hard on the ears.
YES!! ugh this song is so annoying. now that they don't seem to write their hits anymore, the aerosmith stuff i hear on the radio now has gone in the crapper. when i first heard that song, my initial reaction was "good god did someone say 'i'll give you a dollar for every time you say jaded?'" i mean the lyrics are like "you're so jaded cuz i jaded you and that's why you're jaded because i jaded you and your name is jaded because you're jaded because i jaded you." wtf? jaded is such an overused word in songs anyway nowadays, i wonder if these people even know what it means.

I think special consideration must be given to newcomer Vanessa Carlton:

If I could fall into the sky
Do you think time would pass me by?
'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles
If I could just see you

...and said album is titled - get this - Be Not Nobody.
i know. the main thing that bugs me about her is that she's yet ANOTHER female singer copying off of britney. not in the slutty way, but in that way where it seems EVERY female pop singer now inhales about a tank of helium for every song they sing. i think the olsen twins had less helium in their singing when they first broke out.

oh, and be not nobody...ooh, so artistic, so deep, it's like she combined three words hardly used together (uhh, maybe cuz it makes no sense AND is grammatically incorrect?) to make herself sound...unique! she's so unique just like avril lavigne and every other pop newcomer who although they're so goddamn unique, i can't really tell who's who by looking at them or listening to them!

"Because a senator - a politician - a person - who can let hang in mid-air the prospect that she might just be sticking around in part, just in case the other guy gets shot - has no business being, and no capacity to be, the President of the United States." -- Keith Olbermann

Even more frightening is that this song includes a lyric about deep-fried chicken!

That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard.

We also can't forget the Limp Bizkit gem:

"Gimme something to break."

If you can't see the levels in that, then you are not a music fan

Nellie just may take the cake

"it's getting hot in here, so take off all your clothes
I am getting so hot, I'm gonna take my clothes off"

Holy sweet Jesus, my eyes have been opened by this profound piece of prose
