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 by that we didn’t hear it at least once or twice. And on a tangential note, isn’t it weird that Five for Fighting is just one guy? Yeah, his name is John Ondrasik. What a weirdo.
Anyway, at one point late in the song, he sings the line, “inside of me”, but Matt and I think it sounds like he’s singing, “In sodomy”. We both had AIM on our computers, so we always had a contest to see who could message “sodomy” to the other the quickest when the line was sang. The rule was that you couldn’t send it before he sang it, so it was always a mad dash to get it typed and hit enter as the words escaped his mouth.
Ah, good times. Dyno-miiiiiiiiiiite.
Here’s the video. John starts singing about sodomy at the 2:28 mark.
