6 Tricky Song Lyrics

Posted by ESC on June 15, 2004

My new favorite magazine - mental_floss -- http://www.mentalfloss.com/ has an article this month (July/August 2004, Page 28-31) that may be of interest: "6 Tricky Song Lyrics You'll Never Get Wrong Again." The lyrics and what they mean are listed for:

1. That "Leonard Bernstein" section of "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I feel Fine): by R.E.M., 1987.
2. That weird last line of "One Week" by the Barenaked Ladies, 1998.
3. Some of the garbled lines in "Rock the Casbah" by The Clash, 1982.
4. Some lines from that middle part of "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen, 1975.
5. What about that "hippotamus of love" or whatever in "The Joker" by The Steve Miller Band?
6. The granddaddy of them all: What the heck is that "douche" line in "Blinded by the Light" by Manfred Mann's Earth Band, 1976?
