Well, there goes the day...

Lyrical deconstruction.

Via Summer, via Boing Boing

Queen songs seem to be the best so far, but I think Rufus' 'Gay Messiah' is just asking for it. As t'were. Better do some actual work first though.

Excellent - a link I found first. Thank you, metaquotes!

Joni Mitchell's 'Both Sides Now' works pretty darned well, too.

I like the Ghostbuster one. Only the other day I was discussing the Ghostbusters cartoon with Catpee.

Ack I can't beleive it, I was going to do the A-Team theme tune when I realised it doesn't have any words.

Ghostbusters is great, agreed.

I also - in a slightly sadistic and superior way - like the fact that some of the contributors don't get it. You know - the ones that are just repeating the exact lyrics of their favourite song. But with bullet points.

But what a super concept.

Oh that is possibly the best thing, EVER.

Winners so far -
Things that we will rock: you
50 Cent's Entire Career
The old lady who swallowed a fly
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - heroes in a half-shell (green)

P.S. Licked anyone yet?

Update: just read Lola (page 21) - is now current favourite.

Ooh I just read the MC Hammer one, short but sweet:

Things can't touch

Ha ha.

Poison (prodigy) page 25 v. good also. And Muppets, obviously, but I can't remember what page it's on.

He he. It's funny how people can make songs out of about three lyrics.
I added one, but I blooming replied to the wrong post. Argh LiveJournal confuses me. And to think I'm supposed to know about these things. Don't trust me, I say, incompetence is my middle name. I could get really silly and break down my own post:

It's funny how:
- some people can make a song out of only a few lyrics

-confuses me

-am supposed to know about these things
-am incompetent
-could get really silly(already have)

Wow, I could do it backwards and make a song with the breakdown.
