Misinterpret a song title game

Skip to the bottom

  • @robotkitten  7 weeks

    Take the title of a well-known song, and guess what someone might think it was about out of context.

    Example: Goodbye Old Paint sounds like a song about home renovations.

    Enter Sandman is a play about surfers.

    No more tears, by Ozzy Osbourne. It's a song about how annoying it is when you bend over and your trousers rip.

    Rock bottom, by UFO. It's a song about the plight of Sheffield United. Or the Italian rugby team. (Or insert the relevant team from your preferred sport).

    How come it never rains, by The Dogs D'Amour. A song about the Atacama Desert

    "I want to hold you hand", is about a person, hanging off a high cliff, ledge, bridge 😀

    And and when I was a kid, thought the line in Purple Haze was,
    "excuse me, while I kiss this guy" (krappey radio... 😉 )

  • @ustaknow 7 weeks

    Oh, and "Happy Birthday, to You" was originally, really,
    "Happy Birthday, to Hue", never intended for everyone!

  • @candle  7 weeks

    @ustaknow, you make me remember that when I was a kid I thought CCR's Bad Moon Rising said: "There's a bathroom on the right". I told that to my wife when we were first dating & she says that's all she hears now when she listens to the song. LOL. Sorry if I ruined the song for anyone else!

    See You In The Shadows…

    'Vertigo' by U2, as a medical school instructional song.

    @candle one bar I frequented back in the late 80's had DJ's who would sing some songs with a type of karaoke dance-mix backing tracks and when they played Bad Moon Rising, the DJ's would sing 'there's a bathroom on the right'. @ustaknow another bar band, Truc of America, did comedy skits in between or during songs would sing Purple Haze acapella to the tune of King of the Road and did include 'excuse me while I kiss this guy'

  • @candle  7 weeks

    Well, that makes me feel better @andygetch 😁 I'm not the only one!

    "Swallow My Pride" by Green River is a song about eating Lion meat.

    @theresaj - re: boots - I'm pretty sure that song has been used for that purpose, actually. *sad face*

  • @tcelliott  7 weeks

    @candle re: Bad Moon - In my cover band days we would sing a verse and chorus of our very own lyric about toilets overflowing etc., with the tag bathroom on the right. I should have finished another verse and recorded it at some point, but it's all lost to history now.
