Friday Videos Enjoy When Songs Get Stuck in Your Head

Lucinda Betts forwarded me a link to cuteness merged with misheard Motown, and I’ve been grooving in my seat all morning.

And if the Shirelles aren’t to your liking, how about Divine covering Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons?

 

There. Now you have the dueling banjos of addictive songs. Marmosets walking like men. Awesome. Have a great weekend!

    Just a bit of use(less)ful trivia I picked up earlier this week.  Did you know there is an actual word/term for misinterpreted song lyrics. 

    For example:

    Instead of Excuse me while I kiss the sky, many people hear the line as, Excuse me while I kiss this guy.

    The word is : MONDEGREEN

    Awww, Marmosets!  I was having a crappy morning but the marmosets put everything into perspective.

    There’s an entire website (been around for years) that catalogs mondegreens.

    As a child of the late 70s, my all-time favorite is probably “there’s a bathroom on the right…” (CCC, “there’s a bad moon on the rise.”)

    Marmosets! I’m glad I’m not the only one who heard that song that way as well. I feel much better now.

    There are at least 3 books by Gavin Edwards devoted to misheard lyrics. I recommend all three. My favorite is “Smoke on the water/Fire in the sky”  misheard as “Slow-motion Walter/Fire engine guy.”

    I may seem 41 but I’m really 43

    One of my favorite “missed lyrics” is from a guy I used to work with. From the musical “Grease” instead of hearing “I got chills/they’re multiplyin’” he had “I got chills/They’re made of plywood.”
