I was listening to the latest Mint Royale album on the way home from work when the lyrics to one of the songs struck me as odd.

"....Now my heart is beating fast, that's a rythym I can dance to...."

Surely if you tried to dance to the rythym of your heart, you would dance yourself to death?:eek:

Anyone else got any strange lyrics to share?
 
"skipped the light fandango"

What's THAT all about! LOL
 
yep. the whole of this song,

Muse, Knights of Cydonia (Where?)


Come ride with me
Through the veins of history
I'll show you how god
Falls asleep on the job

And how can we win
When fools can be kings
Don't waste your time
Or time will waste you

No one's gonna take me alive
Time has come to make things right
You and I must fight for our rights
You and I must fight to survive

By the way, I think its a cracking peice of music.



But the one that makes me smile every time is, "the sound of Silence"

Edit: I have just found out KT Tunstall didnt sing "So, leigh-on-Sea". Apparently its "Suddenly I see". spolit my trip down to the famlies in Southend that has! Leigh being next door to it see.

"my ears are alight" by Desmond Dekker

Now THAT's weird lyrics! :D
 
My favourite from this week (sorry, it's lewd):

".....Can't run the marathon without trainin'
Or stretch your ****hole without strainin'......"

Dizzy Rascal - Stand Up Tall - Showtime
 
Any track from Genesis' "The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway".....

"Don't delay, dock the ****"

"And through the door, a harvest feast is lit by candlelight
It's the bottom of a staircase that spirals out of sight..."

"In the glare of a light,
I see a strange kind of sight;
Of cages joined to form a star
Each person can't go very far;
All tied to their things
They are netted by their strings,
Free to flutter in memories of their wasted wings."

Gabriel at his finest (or strangest....)
 
Most Pink Floyd lyrics pre "The Wall" are a bit strange.
I can't think of any in particular ATM but my Wife thinks I'm nuts when I sing them. (well maybe not just when I sing PF).
 
Svetlana sucks lemons across from me
And I am progressing abominably
I do not know my own way to the sea
But the saltiest sea knows its own way to me.

Joanna Newsom - This Side Of The Blue
 
Genesis, I'm a lawnmower, you can tell by the way I walk.

I think she may need to listen to a few of the pre-wall tracks. I dont think many have much thats nuts in them. Dark Side of the Moon has some quite intelligent lyrics most of the way through!

Some of the really early stuff can be a bit mad - Bike comes to mind...

DSOTM has lyrics that seem odd on first hearing/reading, just need to think about them (as with most of the Floyd stuff)...
