No one wants to eat a fetus

My fellow blogger Matt Larsen had a New Year’s Eve shindig in his domicile last week. Food was eaten, games were played, and a fantastic time was had by all. Lots of music was listened to…some good, some bad. An impromptu dance party broke out. It was your standard NYE shenanigans. For some reason, an…

Yusta!

You know how you can be listening to a song for years and years and never hear things that someone else hears? That’s what’s so great about popular music, really. There’s a little something for everyone. My bandmate Steve has brought something to my attention that I hadn’t ever realized/heard in the opening lines of…

He’s a lady, a sexy lady…

Thanks to this Swiffer commercial: my 5 year old was singing, “He’s a lady, a sexy lady…” in the backseat of my car last week. My wife, her mother, and I all gave each other quizzical looks because we couldn’t figure out what was going on, then my daughter said, “You know, like in the…

Think I work at CVS? I don’t.

The Jennifer Lopez classic Love Don’t Cost a Thing was on Mix 93.1 earlier today while I was working, and it reminded me of when the song first came out. I’ve always thought she says, “think I work at CVS, I don’t” at one point. I know those aren’t the actual lyrics, though.   In…

Chipoltaway!

South Park‘s 13th season opened with an episode called “I See Dead Celebrities” in which Patrick Swayze, Michael Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, Ed McMahon, Walter Cronkite, DJ AM, David Carradine, Bea Arthur, and others appear in Purgatory. It was the Summer of Death after all. Of particular note, however, was Cartman’s appreciation for advertising hero Billy…

They called me Butt Queen

Two misheard lyrics in one song! Last Sunday, we took Quinn to Southwick’s Zoo in Mendon, MA. On the way home, we were listening to the same mix CD that contains the iCarly and Drake & Josh theme songs that I made for our Lancaster, PA trip last October. Quinn is actually starting to enjoy…

Way down cellar

Back in high school, I worked part time at Stop and Shop. I worked there in the summers through college, as well. I’ve made a couple friends along the way as a result, and worked with quite a variety of people there over the years. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the name of the woman who…

Sodomy

This goes back to when Matt and I shared an office. And yes, I know there are a lot of these stories, but it was a good opportunity for songspeaks, so you can all suck it. Five for Fighting’s song Superman (It’s Not Easy) had just been released, and there wasn’t a day that went…

I am a tough tough personality

I already told you all about one of my biggest misheard lyrics from my youth, but Matt hasn’t shared his yet, so I thought I’d go ahead and do it for him. It comes from Living Colour and their big hit Cult of Personality. I still hear it on the radio all the time, and…

Despite all my rage, I’m still just ready to cave

This misheard lyric goes back about 14 years ago, when Smashing Pumpkins released Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. Bullet with Butterfly Wings was the first single released from that album, and it was getting heavy airplay at the time. Back when we would make the songspeak mixtapes on cassette, we decided we were going…
