    It's Friday, its raining again, though not, I am pleased to say, men. I took the morning train, I have work from 9 to 5 and then, I'll take another home again. And I have my son's 6th birthday party tomorrow, when 20 of the little bless'ems will be descendng on my newly painted house. However, I don't mind as I believe that children are our future.

    However, this means I am in the mood for some gratuitous finger-pointing at other people's artistic output. Anyway, in the UK a couple of years ago, they run a worst lyric competition which was won by Des'ree with:

    I don't want to see a ghost
    It's the sight that I fear most.
    I'd rather have a piece of toast


    Which is pretty toe-curlingly bad, I admit.

    But I am sure we can do better.

    Yeah..yeah..

    "rock" lyrics have got to be the worst of all time. A lot of the time just there to fill in a certain dynamic in the song, to do a little "la,la" or "yeah,yeah" for that part of the song.

    Most of them should of left it at that - it's when they start to trying to put words to that part of the song where it starts to go horribly wrong. Check out "Nickleback's" earlier releases to see what I mean.
    Terrible.


    The contention of what good song lyrics are, and what are just average- or just plain bad- is up for contention.
    But I bet that the songs where the producer said to the artists : " Can you just get some lyrics that rhyme with that bit of the song? " are often the worst ...😛

    And I was like baby, baby, baby, oh
    Like baby, baby, baby, no
    Like baby, baby, baby, oh
    I thought you'd always be mine, mine

    Baby, baby, baby, oh
    Like baby, baby, baby, no
    Like baby, baby, baby, oh
    I thought you'd always be mine, mine

    Not really lyrics, but I couldn't help but throw in the dreadful poetry.

    I’m in love (Sha-la-lee) by 'Sieneke'
    The dutch contribution to the Euro Song Contest 2010´.
    After lisetening the whole song, I couldn´t get it out of my head. Damn song.

    I forgot where I´’ve heard this song, in the summer sun
    I believe it was back there with you on the beach in Lisbon
    Or was it back there in Paris
    Behind a bowl of fresh mocha ice cream?
    Or possibly, it was the two of us overseas in that air balloon

    Shalalee shalala, shalalee shalala
    I can’´t get it out of my head
    Shalalee shalala, shalalee shalala
    I wake up with it in the morning

    I´’m in love with you
    That’´s why I forget so quickly and don’´t know it anymore
    Shalalee shalala, shalalee shalala
    That´’s roughly how it goes

    I’´m in love, I’´m in love
    I´’m in love, that´’s quite obvious

    Or possibly, I was sitting high in the sky, on a plane to Oslo
    Or did it come from a bar in an alley – I was once in Trinidad
    Or was it with a glass of fine wine
    In that pavement cafe in Berlin?
    Maybe back then in the snow on a horse-sleigh in Leningrad?

    How can I, how can I…
    How can I, how can I…
    How can I possibly forget that?

    Shalalee shalala, shalalee shalala
    I can´’t get it out of my head
    Shalalee shalala, shalalee shalala
    I wake up with it in the morning

    I´’m in love with you
    That´’s why I forget so quickly and don’´t know it anymore
    Shalalee shalala, shalalee shalala
    That’´s roughly how it goes

    Shalalee shalala, shalalee shalala
    I can´’t get it out of my head
    Shalalee shalala, shalalee shalala
    I get up with it in the morning

    I´’m in love with you
    That´’s why I forget so quickly and don’t know it anymore Shalalee shalala, shalalee shalala
    That’´s roughly how it goes
    Shalalee shalala, shalalee shalala
    That’s roughly how it goes

    Being used as soundtrack in a current Aussie soap drama involving a seriously dysfunctional adult family - can't imagine why.

    I'm sorry, it's in dutch, but it goes somewhat like this:

    Hooter hooter hooter, with Romana on the scooter
    Ticca tacca tocca, I drive around the blocka
    But I don't care what they think of you
    I always be true to you.

    Kewpie wisely reminds us that Aussie soaps are fertile hunting ground.....

    Sons and daughters

    Love is very strange, it can come and go,
    It can happen when you are young or old,
    When it comes, it comes from nowhere,
    When it comes, it changes your life.

    Chorus:

    Son's and daughters,
    Love and laughter,
    Tears and sadness and happiness,
    We will find out, our son's and daughters,
    Are what, we too, were once about


    Lovely use of language in the last line - smooth as silk

    Home and Away

    You know we belong together
    You and I forever and ever
    No matter where you are
    You're my guiding star

    And from the very first moment I saw you
    I never felt such emotion
    I'm walking on air
    Just to know (Just to know)
    You are there (You are there)

    Hold me in your arms
    Don't let me go
    I want to stay forever
    Closer each day
    Home and Away


    Again, just a wonderful last line. It's the name of the show, so just throw it in.
