From there I started poking around YouTube and found his Late Night Hashtags. Every Wednesday he starts a hashtag on Twitter and asks people to chime in. This is one of my favorites. It's #IusedToThink. Please watch this. My husband and I were practically in tears at "Farmer Cheese".
So that got me thinking about song lyrics I used to think I knew, but toooootally did not.
Ready? I've got more of these than a person should. The best part is that I can totally justify MY lyrics as opposed to the "real" lyrics.
I only share this ridiculousness because I love you. I do. I just can't hear...
I'm an 80's girl and The Go-Go's were IT back in the day. One of their hits was "Our Lips are Sealed" I used to sing at the top of my lungs "Honest Cecile". I mean look at these lyrics and tell me they don't make sense.
Speaking of the 80's, remember a little ditty called "Jack and Diane"? Great song, but John should have consulted me on the lyrics. I used to sing "let the bottle bounce" instead of "let the bible belt"
Alright, this one is hardly my fault. I mean we're talking Elton John now and really who can understand most of his stuff? Not that it's not great music... here's my version of Bennie and the Jets:
This last one is one of my funniest, most embarrassing memories ever. I was with my husband way back before we were married and we were waiting in a line at the bank drive through. The Prince classic "Little Red Corvette" came on and I belted out at the top of my lungs, MY version of it. Theres a part where he kind of sing-talks and well, what I thought is not even close, but I was pretty sure I was nailing it...
I still sing it that way. Old habits die hard.
