For The Love Of Music
i love music. mainstream or not, if it catches my liking, i'd play it over and over again. however, that's not what i wanna blog about.
instead, ever had the experience where you listen to songs, and can't quite catch the lyrics because some singers are very clear with their words? or because of censorship, the word becomes something else?
my cousin's son used to sing, "rock it baby one more time", instead of "hit me baby one more time". then another would sing "pa sup pa na me na", to the "funk phenomena". or secondhand serenade's fall for you from "because a girl like you is impossible to find", is heard as "because a girl i kill is impossible to find".
the other day while driving back from work, tlc's "no scrubs" played. i still sing it incorrectly even though very consciously i know it makes no sense. "always talking about what he wants, and just sits on his broke ass", becomes "always talking about what he wants, and just sits on his vocabs" because ass is censored on the radio and apparently that was a bad word so i never knew the real lyrics till the internet many years later. it really does sound like vocabs to me with the censorship.
but the winner has to be my cousin's wrong understanding of iyaz's replay. know the part he sings "it's like my ipod stuck on replay"?
she asked me:
but i don't understand why he sings
"it's like my eyeballs stuck on replay"
how about you? any experiences?
don't you just love looking at saphanloi?
i laughed every time i saw him on screen. damn cute.
oh saphanloi is the dog in "best of times".
i couldn't get a better pic of him, so this will have to do.
