The song lyrics that have kept us guessing for decades….
I Would Do Anything For Love – Meatloaf
‘I would do anything for love, but I won’t do that.’ But what? WHAT? WHAT WON’T YOU DO? Is this something you find out, along with the secrets of the universe and if there’s a heaven, when you die?
Alphabet Street – Prince
‘A B C D E F H I love you’. Why did he miss out the G? Where is the effing G? Why was this not debated in parliament when it was released in 1988?
Humans – The Killers
‘Are we human? Or are we dancer?’ Look, without wanting to sound like a wanker, the problem we have before us is that the question is posed as a collective plural, but answered with a first person plural pronoun and a singular verb, in other words – what the actual fuck does what they’re saying mean?
I Got a Feeling – The Black Eyed Peas
‘Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Saturday and Sunday.’ (Does someone need to explain that the three-day weekend thing hasn’t happened yet?)
Fix You – Coldplay
‘Lights will guide you home and ignite your bones.’ Wait, when you say lights, do you mean fire torches and are you going to set me on fire and should I be calling the police?
Champagne Supernova – Oasis
‘Slowly walking down the hall, faster than a cannon ball’. Literally no idea what’s happening here.
Whenever, Wherever – Shakira
‘Lucky that my breasts are small and humble, so you don’t confuse them with mountains.’ Definitely still confused though.
Come Together – The Beatles
‘Come together, right now, over me.’ Um…….what, like, now? *Blushes* Are you sure about that?
